Natalie Portman to Jake Gyllenhaal: You're Ugly!

Natalie Portman to Jake Gyllenhaal: You're Ugly!

Jake Gyllenhaal is dubbed one of the “leading men” in People‘s latest Sexiest Man Alive issue (with Johnny Depp on the cover).

The 28-year-old actor’s Brothers co-star shared this little quote in the mag: “Jake is the kind of guy who can do a spot-on impression of someone you work with that will make you giggle. He plays guitar and has a great voice. Kids and dogs love him. He loves his mom and sister and girlfriend. He’s perfect. Too bad he’s ugly.” Ha!

Jake also interviewed Nat for the September 2009 issue of Interview.

    She was obviously being sarcastic. They’ve known each other for ages. Way before Kirsten and Reese.

  • first

    Natalie is a great sense of humor. She really knows how to make a compliment and be funny at the same time. She is so great.

  • Vin

  • Alias

    Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?

  • thirteen

    Nat is smart. Jake is really ugly. I wish a boyfrien ugly like him (LOL).

  • Rebecca

    While I think Jake must be a nice guy, could his PR team have written something just a little less obvious and not quite so brown nosed for Natalie to say? It’s so over the top that only a PR team could come up with something like that. What’s the matter Jake, the showmance make you to boring?

  • Kate

    Jake loves his mom and sister and BOYFRIEND.

  • stela

    This pic is old nowadays both are better good-looking…

  • Emily

    hahahahahaha i love her and i love him… i cant wait to see brothers!!!! its looks really good

  • Mary

    Did anyone have a chance to see “Brothers”?

  • Elisa

    Some people think that Natalie is some sort of god and spend all day kissing her ass. So she made a semi-funny joke. Ta freakin’ da.

  • bc89

    i wish they would date…but if it hasn’t happened by now its probably not going to happen ever.

  • Peg

    @bc89: Jake is gay.

  • coco

    I need a strong drink.

  • Jo

    “Kids & dogs love him, He loves his mom, sister & girlfriend” ??? Jeez how corny can you get? Can his PR please hire a better writer? What about his Dad? or doesn’t he love his dad?!!
    oh yeah, girlfriend…..LMAO

  • Gasol16

    Natalie looks great as always!

  • Gasol16

    Looking forward to seeing Brothers!

  • Anon

    Jake did date Natalie, when she was 18 and he was 19. Before Kristen Dunst. They have known each other since they were kids. They broke up when she went to Harvard, he was at Columbia and he wanted to quit school and be an actor. Natalie is a family friend. She is close to his mother and his sister, too.

  • what she meant to say

    I think she meant to say….”too bad he’s gay”!

  • Anon

    Well you just know Reese isn’t didn’t like it that Jake and Natalie did this movie together. They have too much history together.
    I bet you Reese insists they get married ASAP. The marriage rumors are out here again, but this time Reese’s PR team isn’t denying them.
    If Jake was with Natalie, at least he would be able to have his own kids. With Reese’s kids, they will always love their own father first. Jake would always be in second place to Ryan. I think Jake is adorable and he makes a really cute couple with Natalie.

  • please

    There are many 28 year male actors I would say are gay Jake is not one of them…Hayden Christensen yes, Jake NO

  • Alias

    @25 – Toothy tile

  • lexy

    Anon – were you there when Natalie and Jake allegedly had sex?? Was it a 3-some and that’s how you KNOW what happened?? Turn down the celeb drama and go read a real newspaper or watch CNN. In Touch Weekly and Us aren’t exactly REAL news!
    This movie looks great! Can’t wait to see it. Both are great actors!!

  • VerĂ³nica

    “He’s ugly” said that dumb/ugly girl.

  • @28

    Natalie is funny and smart and gorgeous.

  • Anon

    MYODB, R27. I never said they had sex, I said they did date and it’s pretty common knowledge. I don’t read the magazines you named. BTW: like I said, MYODB and don’t worry about how I chose to spend my time.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    he is ugly.

  • gay as a goose

    “Jake did date Natalie, when she was 18 and he was 19.”

    They never dated because Natalie dates straight men.

  • jamie

    he is really ugly

  • ally

    I also think he is totally ugly. I can’t believe all the people who think he’s hot.

  • LolaSvelt

    @kroq: I’m pretty sure Jared knows she was being sarcastic, so in the end, you look stupid more than anyone.

  • Lou

    omg! just look at him in this pic. only gay men strike a pose like that.

  • barron797

    I think Jake actually is ugly. So the intended irony in Natalie’s comment is lost. It sounds quite offensive and not funny at all.

  • Ava

    They both look like 14-year old geeks in that photo. Clearly an old one.

  • Crap addict

    ‘Kids and dogs love him’ – WTF; pleez, I just threw up. Too much corn!

  • brightside

    Miss Portman is right. He is ugly.

  • Jane Jade

    So did Nat date both Jake and Tobey? They should have had Kristen dunst in this movie

  • wes

    That picture was taken before Jake got 40 pound bags under his eyes. He is not good looking anymore.

  • lakers fan in boston

    poor jakey poo
    he was probably crying when he saw this and went to go cry 2 reese =[

  • enough

    @lakers fan in boston: LOL,
    Jake doesn’t give a shiitt about beard Reese.

  • Leslee

    Is Jake still dating Austin?

  • marisa

    Natalie is totally right: Jake is HOT….


    Jake is gorgeous!

  • JESUS.

    It’s irony. Do you not get it?
    Read it again people.

  • Toothy

    Yeah right Jake is Toothy as gay as gay can be and Nat likes to be seen with the gay ones in candid because she has her own vices- Shela-sturp Never–she gives it out to anyone that will gain PR/roles for her.
