Dylan O’Brien Takes On Jake Gyllenhaal Comparisons in ‘All Too Well’ Short

“Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst spoke with Dylan O’Brien at the NYC premiere of Taylor Swift’s short film “All Too Well.”

While many fans have speculated that the song of the same name is about her ex, Jake Gyllenhaal, does Dylan have any insight? He answered, “No, I don’t think so.”

“My character’s name is Brandon, so that’s all I know about it,” Dylan added. “It’s just an insightful and random take on a relationship that I don’t think she’s even experienced.”

O’Brien opened up about his initial reaction when Taylor asked him to be part of the project, saying, “It was an immediate yes.” He went on, “I couldn’t believe she called me for this… I couldn’t believe she knew who I was.”

As for his mindset going into the project, Dylan said, “Let it fly.” He elaborated, “I’ve never done a project like this before, so it was going to be interesting.”

Dylan noted that he “immediately trusted” Taylor, who he called “brilliant” and “intentional in what she’s doing.”

The “All Too Well” short film premieres today.
