Jake Gyllenhaal: Take Me Less Seriously

Jake Gyllenhaal: Take Me Less Seriously

Jake Gyllenhaal steps out in a pair of Billy Reid shoes as he leaves the Claridges Hotel for media interviews in London on Friday (May 7).

The 29-year-old actor is in town to promote his new video game adapted movie, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Jake shared with BBC news that he’d like to be taken “a little less seriously” as an actor and likes the idea that he’ll be known as the ‘Prince of Persia’.

“I wanted to fulfil the dreams of those movies I loved watching, like Robin Hood with Errol Flynn,” Jake said. “Who knows in two or three years time what other weird thing I’ll do?”

Prince of Persia hits theaters on May 28.

    he Says:

    This guy looks much older than his age. I was looking at a photo-shoot he did in some hotel room in London and man does he look older. I can’t believe he’s in his late 20s instead of late 30s

    Smiler Says:

    He looks gorgeous as always.

    People constantly question his sexuality but he said in an interview that he has never been sexually attracted to men but wouldn’t be afraid of it if it happened. You think that would get people to shut up.

    @ignorant fangirls:

    Umm ignorant fangirls? Was that a shot at me? I’m guessing so since it was a response to me.

    Personally I don’t care if he’s gay,straight or bisexual. As long as he keeps making great films that’s all that matters to me. I just wish for the day when people won’t give a **** about celebrities sexual orientations.

    Oh?: He said it in Details magazine back in 2005 or 2006 can’t remember. It’s online somewhere.

    T. Says:

    His eyebrows and eyes are so close together, he should wear shades all the time.

    Jimmy Says:

    The jacket looks too small for him. Can’t be a British tailor. Now that he has sold out for money, he has to make excuses, such as “don’t take me seriously.” When he started out he wanted more than anything else to be taken seriously. Now he wants to take his fans for lots of money with silly, comic book films. Way to go, Jake. Be your real hypocritical self.

    Jimmy Says:

    Making “great films”???? He made two good films (November Sky and The Good Girl), one great film (Brokeback) and numerous mediocre films. He hasn’t make a “great” film since Brokeback and probably will never so do again. PofP is sure not a “great” film. A great big film, maybe, but not a “great film.”

  24. 24
    Jimmy Says:

    If he wants to do something “weird” he could come clean about his sexuality. That would be kinda weird.

    don't miss!!! Says:

    JAKE and ADAM LAMBERT tonight on Jonathan Ross, BBC 1 !!!
