Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Sept. 19 (ANI): It seems like Jake Gyllenhaal is still keeping a tab on Taylor Swift.

The actor sat in the hot seat opposite Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, who wondered if Jake thought Taylor would write a song for him if he lost his legs in real life, reports Entertainment Weekly.

To which, Gyllenhaal asked, "if the song would be for him or about him losing his legs."

Bauman replied, "For you. Like a country song."

"She sort of moved into pop now," Gyllenhaal joked, expertly shutting down the Swift talk.

Jeff's prying question didn't stop the Boston-native from continuing to poke fun at the Hollywood star, though.

Among the many jokes shared between the two, Bauman shared that he was disappointed Ryan Reynolds was unable to play him in the motion picture film based on his life.

"He would have been better I think," Jeff shared.

Helmed by David Gordon Green, 'Stronger' stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany in lead roles.

The flick is slated for a September 22 release in the U.S. (ANI)
