Jake Gyllenhaal's College Yearbook Pic Revealed!

Check out Jake Gyllenhaal‘s yearbook photo taken more than a decade ago!

The 30-year-old actor, listed as Jacob Gyllenhaal, posed for the pic in 1998 while he was attending Columbia University in New York City.

A source who shared the same floor as Jake during his freshman year tells JustJared.com exclusively, “He did share that he identified himself as an aspiring actor at the time.”

In the yearbook, students were asked who they wanted to be like. Jake‘s response – Kevin Bacon – was listed by default since he didn’t name a specific person.

Jake attended Columbia for two years before leaving to pursue his film career, breaking out in Homegrown, October Sky, and 2001′s Donnie Darko.
