Jake Gyllenhaal's Dad is Dumb -- VIDEO

Jake Gyllenhaal dropped by The Late Show with David Letterman to promote his upcoming crime thriller film Zodiac (out this Friday).

Jake, 26, shared about shooting his new film Rendition during his recent trip to Morocco and the immunization shots he had to get before flying over. He joked around saying,

“I’m a little psychosomatic. I think I might get sick when I’m not. So, I got the yellow fever shot and I went home and I just felt very cold.

“And then I realized that I wasn’t really wearing many clothes. (laughs) It might have been a factor. I’m still not really sure though. I think I may have had yellow fever.”

Ha ha ha. Jake then went on to talk about the fire in the lodge that he and his family got caught in late December 2006.

While escaping from the fire, his mother, Naomi Foner, grabbed two necklaces (Jake gave her one and Jake‘s big sis, Maggie, gave her the other).

And apparently his father, Stephen Gyllenhaal, grabbed… an empty suitcase. Nice one, Papa G!

And Jake just had to share — both of his parents weren’t wearing any underwear. The Gyllenhaals like to go commando!!

“We really have to save these people and get them some underwear!”

Watch the video below of the one and only Jake Gyllenhaal on The Late Show with David Letterman!

    So just who was this friend with him in the adjoining lodge?
    But seriously, I’m glad to know they were all ok.

    ^My guess would be his best friend Chris the chef, who’s practically a member of the Gyllenhaal family they say. There were lots of pics of Chris with Jake around California this past holiday season.

    He’s so Boring… I’m just seeing this movie because it’s directed by David Fincher.

    I think he is totally adorable! The Marin County fire sounds like it was pretty bad, actually. And it sounds like it was a big family gathering. Thanks for the video clip, Jared. Jake is an angel!!

  • Sisibot

    I thought this interview was pretty entertaining. I love Jake. I saw Zodiac, it was slow in some places, but overall a decent film. I think that Jake makes a conscious effort to stay away from films that are very mainstream. I don’t think he wants to be a stock male actor that gets casted in every other romantic comedy (like his buddy Matt Mcconaughey).
