“If you lost your legs in real life, do you think Taylor Swift would write a song about it?”
In the upcoming biopic Stronger, Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jeff Bauman, a man who lost his legs as a result of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.
Jake and Jeff spent a lot of time together over the course of the film, and developed a real friendship in the process.

Recently, the two sat down to interview each other. Looking for an inspiring, somber interview about a life-changing event? Sorry, all we’ve got here is a movie star getting roasted to hell by the surprisingly hilarious hero he plays in a movie.
Sorry, NOT sorry.
The movie highlights the fact that Jeff used humor to get through the biggest trial of his life — and he wasted no time showcasing that brutal comedic wit at the expense of his pal Jake.
When Jake tried to get a word in to ask Jeff a question, he literally ignored the question and spat back this gem:
“Like, for you…like a country song.”
