Jake Gyllenhaal Covers 'Details' September 2012

Jake Gyllenhaal shows off a full beard on the cover of Details‘ September 2012 issue, on newsstands later this month.

Here is what the 31-year-old End of Watch actor had to share with the mag:

On the extreme prep required for the film: “Five months for a 22 day shoot. Three nights a week in ride-alongs with cops. Fight training every morning at a KenboKarate dojo, and I got the shit kicked out of me. Then the shooting range, shooting past each other’s heads, with live ammo. There’s a simulated fire in the movie, but Dave (the Director) wanted us to feel what that’s like, so he had us do a controlled burn… a Saturday where me and Michael Pena drive down to Orange County, dressed like firemen head-to-toe, and suddenly we’re there just sit- ting in the middle of a burning building.”

On being on the other side of the camera: “I grew up on the other side of the camera. And yes, I do love making movies as much as being in them. I love actors, watching what they do, and I do love acting off-camera, and how it helps tell the story.”

On his outlook on life: “Every journey starts with fear. And I could say that’s what I want to embrace now. A real experience. And I want, overall, to trust what I know is right. There have been many times when I haven’t. It’s what I’m asking myself: Where is the line? What is the line? There’s so much context, it can be almost impossible to find.”
