It seems like everyone, especially radio host Howard Stern, is making a big deal out of Jake Gyllenhaal's recent appearance on Good Morning America, where he was interviewed to the soundtrack of ex Taylor Swift's Bad Blood. During a subsequent appearance on Howard's Sirius XM radio show, Jake had to reiterate that he was unaware of the music.

He told the host, "First of all, I did not hear that... When I'm doing an interview when you're up at 5am and you can't really make sense of words, you're not thinking about the background music that's playing behind you."

Howard then told the Southpaw star that he should have married Taylor. "I feel – and this is me stepping in – you should have married Taylor Swift, and I'll tell you why… What a power couple!" Jake, however, cleverly brushed it off by replying, "She is a beautiful girl."

Jake did admit that his fear commitment has held him back from getting married. But he does hope to one day settle down. "I think it's hard for everybody, but I also think at some point, you just decide to grow up, you know?" Here's to hoping you find the right person soon, Jake.
