Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Back Tattoo of Pittsburg Steelers!

Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Back Tattoo of Pittsburg Steelers!

Jake Gyllenhaal suits up in Burberry as he shows off his new back tattoo on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (December 3).

The 28-year-old actor’s fake tattoo is the logo for the Pittsburgh Steelers football team. Why Pittsburgh? Jake and Anne Hathaway have been there the past three months shooting their new movie, Love And Other Drugs (he says they “bared almost all” for their love scenes).

Jake next stars in the Oscar-buzzworthy movie Brothers alongside Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman. The movie is out in theaters TODAY!

    It’s Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Male Tramp stamp.

  • Robin

    Put a temporary tattoo on your back for a talk show so you can show it off is kinda gay. But Jake does look really good on the show. To bad he allowed his beard girlfriend to pull such a stupid PR stunt. It’s totally overshadowing his new movie. Never thought Jake would turn into a hardcore PR wh*re like his fake girlfriend.

  • Ava

    Jake, ever desperate to show that he is a straight man, resorts to a temporary football tattoo. Because gay men don’t watch football, do they Toothy?

  • Austin

    @Robin: Gay is OK!

  • Panda

    He’s so goofy, him and his beard both.

  • Anon.

    God, he is hot! I love him! He’s funny, too. I wish Reese Witherspoon, with her dumb A** , would dump him, for real. He wouldn’t last more than a heartbeat. Natalie Portman will be right there, B**ch!

  • Aniiv

    Up until that Jimmy Kimmel appearance only his boyfriend had seen that tat.

  • ha

    I find it extremely insensitive raving about naked scenes with another actress when you have a girlfriend, he seems too happy to have naked scenes with another woman.

    Natalie could have him if she wanted to, he is dumb.

  • pup

    now THAT’S commitment.

  • goose

    @ha: Jake Gyllenhaal has a girlfriend?!? LMAO!

  • Megan

    @ha: Natalie dates straight men.

  • Emily

    i dont get why so many people think hes gay!!! anyways, i cant wait to see brothers…it looks amazing and i love all three of the actors in it!!!!

  • bearding

    @Emily: Because the showmance with Witherspoon is transparent PR campaign.

  • marian

    Jake is adorable like always! I love him!
    Thanks God his tatoo is temporary cause early or later you´ll have regrets. See Johnny Depp, Angelina and others…

  • YourMomma

    Natalie Portman is gorgeous! Stop hatin’ on Jake! YEEAAHHH…temporary tattoo…..

  • merkin

    A merkin in the gay and lesbian set in Hollywood refers to a “usually” straight male escorting a gay woman to public events so as to attempt to camouflage the lesbian’s secret sapphic lifestyle.

  • UV

    Jake looks good with short hair and without both beards.

  • LuckyL

    Why did he have to get a tramp stamp?

  • BBoy

    @LuckyL: Because his boyfriend likes to look at it while he’s doing him from behind.

  • Rosie

    PITTSBURGH… Not Pittsburg…

  • Sick&Tired of Being Sick&Tired

    There’s s handful or less, maybe 2 or 3 “regulars” who are on a crusade to be as vicious as they can. They are Jakehaters. They’re obssessed with gay sex and they’re angry at Jake because he isn’t the fantasy character they wanted from Brokeback Mountain. Is that sick or what? LOL! They are pathetic.

    Jake isn’t gay. There’s nothing wrong with being gay. People who use being gay as an accusation, and throw it around to smear or injure someone’s reputation in our homophobic world, are doing it because they are haters themselves. They wouldn’t keep screaming about Jake being gay if they felt being gay were a normal thing. They obviously think there is something wrong with it.

    Jake has said he isn’t gay. people who KNOW him know he isn’t gay. He was in a a MOVIE. Get over it. There’s even a gossip monger the has been who peddles the same blind item all over the internet, a former druggie and an alcoholic, who was snubbed by Jake at a media event, and he has been after him ever since. The jerks who buy what he is peddling have kept him employed. These trolls should go back to their sick little forums and chat groups, and peddle their hatred elsewhere. Jared has a positive site. People are tired of you trolling every thread on every website like you are on a mission, patrolling the internet, to “get” Jake. Pigs.

  • sj

    Jared you’re gonna get flamed for misspelling Pittsburgh.

  • sj

    And besides, that’s a fake/temporary tattoo.

  • i wonder

    Kinda wonder if Jake doesn’t like Ann Hathaway! He called her Annie.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    poor guy will never be a leading man.

  • Whoever

    Ok…. I saw this post and skipped over it b/c I thought he was irrelevant! I just came from the movies and I am i love, so I feel the need to post it!!! Who knew that he look pretty darn good with a 5 o’ clock shadow!!!! I NEVER found him attractive…. until I saw Brothers…. which by the way was AMAZING!!!!

  • gay as a goose

    “throw it around to smear or injure someone’s reputation”
    #26, you are homophobic moron.
    Jake is gay and saying so isn’t a smear because there is nothing wrong with being gay.
    Jake is bearding (was bearding?) with Witherspoon and that is nothing to be happy about.

  • everybody

    tl/dr #26

  • nothing wrong with being gay

    there’s nothing wrong with being gay but i totally get what #26 is getting at. if he’s out, he’s out. but if he’s not just leave him be and stop tailing all the jake posts just to say he’s gay bc you oh so wish he should/could be. yall sound like some bitter old drag hags just bc you can’t believe he’s dating witherspoon…B-I-T-T-E-R! lmao ‘Jake is gay’. I don’t give en eff if he is but just stop blabbing it from the rooftop with your tearstained faces. Go trail Kevin Spacey posts if you really want a concrete case of closet denial.

  • Gail

    Jake is so funny and so cool I love him!!!

  • PittsburghPrincess

    Your headline says “Pittsburg.” That’s some useless California town. It’s a very noticeable error, you ought to add the H.

  • lakers fan in boston

    lol, jakey poo got a tramp stamp
    u no they’ll love that if u ever get locked up jakey
    u no that’s why u got it =p

  • Jake is gay

    Jake isn’t dating Witherspoon, he is just selling fake straight image.
    I’m not buying his PR bullshiit and have the right to say so.

  • Ava

    It’s clear that #26 is all of about 15 or 16 years old. Nobody else but a delusional teenage fan girl would use the term “hater”. Just like that teenage girl who posted a video on YouTube before Adam Lambert came out calling everyone who thought he was gay a “hater.”

    Only homophobes think that calling someone gay makes you a hater. You’re the hater #26. Grow up.

    jake is gay.

  • Kate

    “poor guy will never be a leading man”
    I think Jake has a chance.
    I understand why he wants to stay in the closet, but he desperately needs better PR team.

  • slambang

    LOVE YOU, JAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • A

    Is his boyfriend that guy Austin Nichols or something like that?

  • Jeff

    @A: Yes.

  • emoly

    I wonder if Austin made him get the tattoo, I think it symbolizes property or something. Its odd that gossip columnists like Casblanca and Perez trash gay actors, thereby making it more difficult for them to come out. At the same time, actors who portray gay characters in movies are also labeled as gay in “real life.” This friendly fire attack will only prevent gay characters in films because no one will want to play them, and it will prevent actors from coming out because they won’t be able to get straight roles.

  • goose

    “At the same time, actors who portray gay characters in movies are also labeled as gay in “real life.”
    Russell Crowe and Colin Farrell played gay characters too – no one labeled them gay.

  • A

    So what’s that thing with him and Sophia Bush. I heard they are together.

  • Jeff

    @A: Austin and Sophia are longtime friends and they work together.
    Jake, Austin and Sophia are friends for years – did you see the pictures?

  • evie

    Awwww, Jake. What a great personality, sparkly sense of humor, quick, bright mind. I heart you, Jake.

  • Marie

    Jake is smart,talent and handsome actor. He has a brilliant fuure!
