Jake Gyllenhaal: Back To Black

Jake Gyllenhaal: Back To Black

Jake Gyllenhaal sports all black as he leaves his West End hotel on Tuesday (May 4) in London, UK.

The 29-year-old actor is in London for the premiere of his new film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. He recently talked about what drew him to this role as Prince Dastan. “On a personal front, it was something that was so unlikely to find myself doing. It was unlike anything I’d ever played. But when I talked to director Mike Newell about it, it wasn’t just a video game adaptation. It was a massive epic that he had in the works. They had a real classic story, that was emotional and real, and it was filled with massive turns and twists,” he told Manila Bulletin.

“Every day during filming you must keep in your mind where you are, how you got there and who fooled who,” Jake said. “It is like a Usual Suspects and that makes it intriguing to me. Also, if these movies are going to get done, they should be done by the best and Jerry Bruckheimer is the one to make them!”

FYI: Jake is wearing a dark blue suede motorcycle jacket from Brioni and Billy Reid footwear.

    Hi Jakey! :)

  • Jim

    He looks like a muppet. I don’t like his ping pong ball eyes.

  • miss infamous

    I still think he is gay but hes hot regardless

  • Sophie

    OMG he’s in the UK! Come up North Jake!

    So gorgeous and sweet, and I can’t wait for him on Jonathan Ross!

  • Carrie

    I have always loved Jake. He is yummy! I can’t wait to see his new movie. I don’t know how Reese could let him go for the ugly dude she is with now. Talk about a step down.

  • Em

    @Carrie: Reese who???
    Jake ended the showmance.

  • Not his best look

    Jake looks awful with that style haircut. His long narrow head and deep-set eyes need more hair framing them to balance his look. He also appears thin here like he’s lost a good bit of weight. Hope he’s not secretly still pining over Witherspoon. Don’t allow her to dismiss you as being “needy” Jake. Just move on. SHE certainly did.

  • Persilla,Queen of Desserts!

    It’s gotta drive Reese crazy to see his posters and trailers all over the place. Her kids probably want to see the movie!!! LOLOL!!!! She never had to worry about Ryan this way. Reese is very competitive. She probably is hiding on her “farm” with the pigs.

    Jake’s new movie looks like fun. I am definitely going to see it. He is seriously HOT.

  • Us Weekly

    @Not his best look: No need to worry,
    I’m sure Jake is more than happy that he doesn’t have to do photo ops with Reese The Beard Witherspoon.

  • athena

    The trailer looks good….I can’t wait to see this film….way to go Jake!

  • Kimberlee Dash

    He looks flamboyent

  • annie

  • Deedz

    Good lord Jake. You’re too much.

  • Eric Shinn

    He’s staying in the west end of London – nice and close to Soho where all the gays hang out!!! Keepin’ it real Jake!!!!!

  • Rachel O.

    He’s gay, isn’t he? How come hasn’t he come out already? :/
    At least, there are a lot of rumours out there.

  • Whamo

    1984 called, it wants it’s jacket back Jake.

  • michelle

    gay or not leave him the hell alone hes grown he can do whatever he want

  • Rachel O.

    Hm no need to be so damn rude child. I was just stating the obvious. I love Jake FYI. I think that he and Austin Nichols made such a cute couple. ;)

  • Ava

    I agree Rachel O. except I’d change the “made” to a “make” because I think they’re still together, just hiding because Disney has a problem with a gay family man.

  • Rattlesnake

    he looks like a stalker ,scary face

  • Rachel O.

    @ Ava – doesn’t Austin have a “girlfriend” now though?

  • Holly

    I see the same person replies to their own comments.

  • Jimmy

    Stop the double talk, Jake. You did the movie because you think it will make you tons of money and you need more money. You know, to support your folks and so on and so forth. Money is your motivation just as it is for almost everyone in Hollywood, so no more nonsense about “massive epoch” “emotional and real” and all the rest of the blather you are dishing out.

  • Rachel O.

    @ Holly – Are you talking to me? If so, you’re wrong sweetie. I have a life.

  • marta

    I am looking forward to watch POP. Jake is hot!!!

  • melissa

    I think Jake is good looking but I prefer his hair no too short.

  • Holly

    @Rachel O.: Yep you, and “sweetie” you have a life?, yep, a pathetic one.

  • ally

    He doesn’t do it for me. I just don’t find him sexy at all. The fake accent and fake hair in this movie are just making it worse.

  • Rachel O.

    @Holly: wtf? weirdo…

  • se

    The paparazzis frightened him!
