Just when you thought all the coffee dating that Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift have been doing lately couldn’t get any worse … it goes and gets worse. The first photo of Jake and Taylor together on Thanksgiving has finally surfaced … on the cover of this week’s issue of US Weekly magazine. While the photos that we’ve seen HERE and HERE were snapped clandestinely, this new photo was taken full on face-front … behold:
The new Us Weekly (now on newsstands) has the first photos of Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal’s romantic Thanksgiving Day weekend. Arm in arm, the two looked more smitten than ever as they took an afternoon stroll in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood, where the actor’s sister, Maggie, lives. Dating for just five weeks, the romance is heating up, several insiders tell Us Weekly. “She loves his family and he loves hers,” says a Swift source. Adds another pal, “It’s definitely serious.” So, how did the unlikely romance come about? Find out and get more – including why their relationship works; their thoughts on the nine-year age gap and what their families think; how Swift is already “love-struck” and must-see exclusive photos – in new Us Weekly today!
Now … I think it’s pretty clear that I am not a fan of this Jake and Taylor pairing so, naturally, my commentary about the two of them together will prolly never be favorable. But I have to point out the curious nature of this new photo of Jake and Taylor looking so happy and smiley together. All of the photos we’ve seen of the pair have been taken from behind or from far away … this photo looks way too posed to look like a genuine candid shot. I mean, doesn’t this photo look like the couple are posing? The casual one hand hold, the laughing and looking away … the coffee cup. Doesn’t it seem curious that all of the sudden a professional photographer not only happened to get a clear shot of the couple lookin’ all “coupled up” but that they managed to get the photo face front? It’s all too … perfect. To be honest, I was more willing to believe the couple were actually a couple from all the clandestine camera phone photos snapped of the two of them. This perfectly posed photo makes the whole “relationship” seem … staged. Mebbe I’m wrong and my personal feelings are getting in the way but … what do y’all think?
