Jake Gyllenhaal: Beard is Back!

Jake Gyllenhaal: Beard is Back!

Jake Gyllenhaal goes for the caveman look again, sporting a full beard during the 2010 New Yorker Festival In Conversation at NYC’s SVA Theater 1 on Saturday (October 2).

When asked what he learned from playing Bubble Boy, the 29-year-old actor said, “To take chances like [Johnny] Depp.”

Last week, Jake sampled food from super chefs like David Chang and Robert Newton at Le Fooding, a culinary festival at PS1 in Queens, N.Y.

  • Leila

    I don’t find him attractive in general, he’s way too dorky for my taste….however I think he looks a lot better with the beard.

  • betty

    Wowwwwwwwwwww!!!Recently, I came across a hot dating site—–Black White—– There are many sassy ladies and handsome rich guys seeking fun, friendship, love ,marriage and even more!!!!! Maybe you wanna check out or tell your friends.

  • Brightside

    Very unhygienic, a beard. It traps all manner of food particles, bacteria, dander and face leakage. Not pleasant as well as being the cause of a nasty rash should a person be unwise enough to kiss one. I think he should shave it off again.

  • Kaz

    I hate beard ,,my face is clean and smooth skin not like hollywood skin rude

  • Dance In The Dark


    Don’t hide that beautiful face from the world!

  • Lizzie

    He’s so handsome it’s a shame to hide his face behind that shaggy beard. But I would rather see Jake with a beard on his face, than another horrible beard on his arm. If he has to choose on which beard to stay away from, than he should keep the fake, female ones away.

  • N.

    I like it when a good looking man wears a beard, as long as he can grow a full one. There’s something appealing about knowing there’s a cute guy under there. lol However, men who can’t grow a good beard shouldn’t try…ie. Keanu Reeves and Jackson Rathbone.

    @Brightside: i couldn’t have said it better

  • Dee

  • the truth

    Don’t like the beard at all. Thnk he should shave it off.Also its time for him o start dating again.I see the rumor are him and rachel bilson has stopped No one wants to say nothing about it. You all can believe what their reps say about them not dating. I believe they are. Rachel bilson is in new york right now.Isn’t fashion week is over in new york a month are ago?Shave the beard off jake. And start living again


    Ugly either way. Overrated actor too. ..

  • Annie

    I think he’s a butterface to begin with, and the beard only makes things worse. I don’t know why so many women seem to find him attractive. Talented? Yes, I’ll give him that but cute? no.

  • madmax

    maybe the beard is for an upcoming role he is doing? I wish the reporter had asked him.

  • Whatever

    As long as it’s an actual beard, I’m ok with it!

  • yayaya

    a great, big, bushy beard!! I <3 Jake!!

  • alex

    i don’t care what anyone says,
    that guy is good looking with or without a beard
    i’m trying to grow one now!

  • Anon

    He is such a nice guy. I hope he finds someone special!

  • me1

    @16 the truth
    it does not say anywhere bilson is NY

  • Dee

    I would love to see Jake dating again, but not RB. She is too self indulged and too high maintenance for him. Calls herself a princess! He is beautiful with or without the beard.

  • Kelly

    Don’t listen to haters Jake, you look adorable. :)

  • huh?

    he is comparing himself to JOHNNY DEPP?????
    keep telling yourself that toothy, no one else will, but you keep right on telling yourself that.

  • suzycreamcheese

    I hate it!

  • annab

    Looks better without the beard….


    A little bit o’ beard is okay, but a forest is a no-no. Cut down some of those trees and trim the hedges.

  • sylvia

    I love him with or without beard.

    And yes, Johnny Depp did rubish (a nightmare… and 21 jump street and always, I love him).

  • chocolatecookie

    beard or no beard id still sit on his face.

  • me

    # 27 huh? is a disappointed Toothy Tile loon.

  • Megan

    Thank God it’s only hair on his face,
    not another woman he “dates”

  • LMAO

    “Rachel bilson is in new york right now.”
    You really expect Jake to beard with her???
    Nah, Jake is still recovering from bearding with b!tchy Reese Witherspoon.

  • agree


    Agree 100%

  • @ the truth

    You are so funny! You choose to believe only the things you want to believe, no matter what evidence there is to the contrary! The rumors about Rachel dating Jake stemmed from them being in the same yoga class at a gym, and were denied twice by their reps. She has been in Paris, and there was a siting of her there over the weekend on twitter, with a photo “to follow”, as of yesterday. She was in Milan before she was in Paris, went there a week ago. She may have come back yesterday, but I have a feeling there will be photos of her at the airport when she does. You would not believe that Hayden and Rachel were engaged until they had been for almost a year! The way Rachel is photographed constantly when she is LA, or anywhere there is a camera, if she was in LA “dating” Jake, why are there no photos of them? There has never been any photos of them together in LA or anywhere else together since these rumors surfaced. Kind of funny you would not believe Hayden and Rachel were engaged or dating, when Rachel had a ring on her finger, but even though no one has seen Rachel and Jake together at all, you believe they are dating, lol! But you believe what you want, I’m sure you are happy she is not with Hayden anymore, lol!

  • Shari

    Boo! I like without the beard! But he is so adorable no matter what he does! <3

    I think he’s a butterface to begin with, and the beard only makes things worse. I don’t know why so many women seem to find him attractive. Talented? Yes, I’ll give him that but cute? no.

  • se
