Jake Gyllenhaal Covers 'V Man' Fall/Winter 2013

Jake Gyllenhaal Covers 'V Man' Fall/Winter 2013

Jake Gyllenhaal gets his closeup on the cover of V Man magazine’s Fall/Winter 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Prisoners actor had to share with the mag:

On discoveries as an actor: “More and more, I’ve tried to ask myself about myself … that’s one of the reasons I love other actors, I discover what I want to talk about when I begin to exchange with someone else. You constantly stay alive, stay awake, listen to yourself.”

On life after filming End of Watch: “I made a number of changes in my life … I moved from Los Angeles to New York City, really to be closer to my family, and also – I had made a lot of promises to myself about getting back to theater, which is what I love, and I really wanted to follow that … so I just made this sort of big move out East, which is the opposite move people usually make, and I basically took some time.”

Prisoners co-star Hugh Jackman on Jake: “What always impressed me about Jake was his steadfast commitment to connection, His work ethic is like mine: he loves to explore, dig and extract every ounce of depth in a scene. He has the courage to follow his instincts and helps create an atmosphere where anything is possible. He is open, always striving for truth and complexity. What he has pulled off in Prisoners is extraordinary.”

    It’s always funny when actors try to get all existential about what they do. Maybe it’s their way of justifying the ridiculous sums they get paid.

    You’re just an actor, dude. And it’s just a movie.

  • ace11

    Going to be intersting to see how this thing plays out with Alyssa

    she is probably looking for publicity and sex

    he is probably looking toward marriage and family

  • Diane

    Really like the cover, very artistic and moody.
    Jake’s eyes – even in B&W are so expressive, soulful.

  • lola

    his left eye always looks like it’s about to pop out

  • june

    @ace11: if he’s really looking for all that maybe he should try to find an older more settled woman. this girl doesn’t seem ready for marriage and kids. there’s not much demand for pregnant models.

  • margie

    I guess family doesn’t include his dad. He just seems to identify with the Jewish part of himself that is his mom.

  • gina


    obsessed with Jake’s sex life?
    in EVERY post about Jake, be it about his movies, magazine covers, premiers, pap photos, ALL you talk about is his sex life.
    find somebody for yourself and get laid

  • lory

    He looks disturbingly hot here,I’m fascinated and at the same time makes me want to run for the hills

  • Jaime


    His dad divorced his mother in 2009 and remarried in 2010, he has a new family with kids now.
    Understandably, Jake sided with his mother who basically got dumped after 20 years for a younger woman.

  • ken

    his gf is a total babe
    he’s a so so actor
    i’d like to be one so I could snag a hot model or 2 or 3

  • will

    @Jaime: but looks like jake is following in dear old dad’s footsteps dating younger girls too. in 10 years or so he will probably be dating 21 year olds. we guys like the young stuff the older we get. I think it was more like 30 or so years later that ugly mother got dumped.

  • Lynn

    Soulful indeed. Jake’s the epitome of soulful beauty. With an edge.

  • ?

    A “so-so actor”… with a BAFTA award, Oscar, Golden Globe, Drama League and other dozen of nominations?
    With chances for another Oscar nom this year for 3 great performances?
    Who’s a good actor for you? Channing Tatum?

  • ken

    @?: f’n get real
    more like Daniel day lewis
    tatum’s a joke
    and just because you get noms doesn’t mean you’re great
    look at Cooper for instance

  • lizzy

    he’s ugly…
    looks like a monkey

  • Jaime

    The difference being: Jake isn’t married. Unlike his father, he wasn’t married for 30 years then decided to dump his wife.
    Jake is single: he can date any woman he wants, he’s not hurting a family if the relationship fails.

  • gillian

    @Jaime: how do you know he dumped her? maybe she got tired of him. people can grow apart after they get older. Naomi might have been the one to want out. we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. don’t be so judgemental against the men in relationships.

  • will

    @Jaime: Sounds like you got dumped yourself. A little vindictive if you ask me. And who knows, maybe Jakey will dump a wife in 10 or 15 years for a hot young girl and break up his little family. That’s hollyweird for you baby.

  • Donnie

    @ken: I agree about Cooper, but Gyllenhaal is a great actor, if he keep up like this, with stellar performances as End of Watch, Daniel Day Llewis league, is not far at all

  • Lynn

    He WON a BAFTA, the British Oscar. Look up youtube, it’s there.
    And other 16 awards, one for Outstanding Newcomer for a theater play on West End.
    Check your facts better before trashing somebody you know nothing about.

  • Jennifer

    @Donnie: I disagree, he is not great. But to each his own. Some of his performances are good but that’s all I can say and I’ve seen them all. There a many actors of his caliber around. Very few are in the great iconic level.

  • ken

    @Lynn: I know all about him idiot and I’m not trashing him. Just because I don’t bow down and worship him as a great actor doesn’t mean I don’t think he’s any good. jesus h crist get a life and stop trashing people that don’t agree with you.

  • christ on a cracker

    gimme a napkin im drooling. He and his BFF Adam Levine are dating” MODELS”…

  • get real

    @gillian: Are you kidding me? He dumped his wife for his younger assistent

  • lmao

    @get real: Do you blame him? That crazy biotch is hideous.

  • Donnie

    @Jennifer: I think he’s an amazing actor, constantly underrated, I don’t think the awards it has won, make him a great actor, but the amount of iconic roles that has already accumulated at his young age

  • gillian

    @get real: do you have proof or just assuming that’s the way it went down? did Naomi or Stephen or the kids say that’s what happened? I know Jake and Maggie went to the wedding so obviously they were ok with it. Dad’s always seem to get the bad rap when things don’t work out.

  • Jennifer

    @Donnie: OK that’s fine. We will just agree to disagree. That’s what makes life interesting.

  • Livin’ the Life

    All I want to say is, if Jake Gyllenhaal was looking at me like that, there is only one word to say in such a situation: “YES!”

  • get real

    @gillian: Proof!? He married his young assistant and Naomi lives alone with her daughter and her family. How can be more obvious than this?

  • swoon
  • Ambere

    @Jaime: Where do you come up with Stephen having any kids other than Maggie and Jake? And he remarried in 2011 not 2010.

  • disgusting

    I cant believe how many people actually like this douche closet case no talent. he is terrible and that big mouthed bimbo beard model is a joke as well.
    he just gets more and more ridiculous every year.

  • so boring

    @disgusting: Ok honey, back under your rock now, in despair because Ted Casblanca got fired, sighing on your Brokeback DVD

  • rebra

    @so boring: lol actually they are speaking a lot of the truth. btw bbm is a really good movie so not really sure what you meant by that crack. you’ve probably got your own rock waiting for you some where too.

  • boooooring

    @rebra: oh please, back to livejournal, and give me a break bitter fag hag

  • C

    @get real:

    How do you know that Naomi lives with her daughter lol? Do you live next door???

  • C

    @Red Head:

    Totally agree, actors like to pretend they are more clever than they are by going round in circles and saying stuff that no one understands….

  • Succk Offf

    @boooooring: FU fugley azz biotch u suk donkey dong

  • Alice

    @C:Right. Naomi has money, she doesn’t need to live with her kids. Some people in this thing don’t know s hit from shineola!
