That's what hits your heart," he noted, basically confirming fan theories that the One Direction song "Perfect," which he cowrote, was in fact referencing his public relationship with Taylor.)And, more surprisingly, Harry commented on THE Central Park trip Harry and Taylor took together in December 2012 for a quick and wildly talked-about stroll."When I see photos from that day I think: Relationships are hard, at any age.And adding in that you don't really understand exactly how it works when you're 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn't make it easier," he said, adding, "I mean, you're a little bit awkward to begin with. But at the heart of it — I just wanted it to be a normal date." Considering both Harry and Taylor have been famous since they were teenagers, the likelihood that either of them have experienced such an outing is pretty slim — and that's a pretty bittersweet cost of fame.Now that he's linked to one of the biggest celebrities on the planet, there's no denying we'll be seeing more of this face in the future—if the romance rumors are true.
At the time, Gyllenhaal was nine years her senior—a minor scandal—but the relationship only lasted three months. She kept up the edge for her hosting duties at the Met Gala, where she wore a silver cutout Louis Vuitton dress, paired with lace-up sandals and a dark lip.
It would have turned into one of the smoldering ember piles of forgotten celebrity relationships that dot the tabloid landscape if not for that maple-latte photo and “Red,” the song Swift allegedly wrote about Gyllenhaal, which initiated him into a sort of club: a group of men that have inspired Swift songs. So, er, did he listen to any of the many songs rumored to be about him?

"After her 1989 tour and all the attention Taylor received, she learned she had to be more protective of her personal life and she and Joe decided early on to keep their private life private," the friend added.
Alwyn is still a rising film star, but he's previously appeared in (2017) with Charlotte Rampling, Emily Mortimer and Michelle Dockery.
magazine, Harry finally opens up about his time dating Taylor and (of course) only had kind things to say about her.
But the singer did get real about how complicated it can be dating someone constantly in the spotlight, and how he's used his own life to inspire some of his songs. I'm lucky if everything [we went through] helped create those songs.
So it's not surprising Swift would want to keep this relationship in the dark for as long as she could.
It's also not surprising the 27-year-old Grammy winner fell for a Brit.
You're on a date with someone you really like. Harry also spoke up about seemingly being the main root of inspiration for Taylor's music, and Taylor for being frank about her life experiences.
