Jake Gyllenhaal Covers 'GQ Australia' November 2013

Jake Gyllenhaal is handsome in a white tee on the cover of GQ Australia magazine’s November 2013 issue, out on newsstands now!

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

On getting into, and out of, character: “I really, really love listening to really poppy music. I play a lot of intense characters and going the other way can help. Sometimes if you listen to something that’s the complete opposite of the feeling you’re having, you can dive even deeper. Somehow you’re not thinking so much. And then bam, you’re in it. I’m obsessed with food. I love eating in general, but if I’m somewhere on location, I tend to find one restaurant and weirdly will eat one or two things that I love. Then I’ll know I’m going there at the end of the day to eat that thing. It’s like a strange catharsis to me. I don’t know what it does… but it kind of breaks the boundaries of something that’s different to what my character would eat.”

On Prisoners co-star Hugh Jackman: “I heard so many things about him, as we all have, that he’s such a good guy, such a nice bloke, but I had my own skepticism about that. But when I worked with him, the amazing thing about it, annoyingly so, is it’s just very true. He’s a good man. And as an actor, he’s so humble. I mean, given the position he’s in… People say success brings out who somebody really is, and he’s a deeply good man. He’s not performing it.”

On his family: “[My parents] knew the business and really wanted me to get an education. They believed that if I wanted it enough, and it was really something I had a desire to do, then I had plenty of time to do it. They were of the thinking that there’s really only one time in your life when you can go to school, and have that experience. So I’m grateful to them.”

    Ugly. He looks like a mongoose or platypus.

  • wtf

    he didn’t even finish college

  • fiona

    Pretty good photo of him

  • Livin’the Life

    Now that’s the Jake I love best! This skinny guy with long hair is not a good look, and sometimes he wears the long hair with a full bushy beard and that’s definitely not a good look. But the GQ Cover Jake is hot. Seriously hot.

  • Chloe

    Odd looking guy but he has given some really good performances in his career. Much better than Hugh Jackman.

  • for Nightcrawler

    @Livin’the Life:

    “The skinny guy with long hair look” is for a movie, y’know? It’s not about looking good but playing a character.
    He’ll bulk up again for the Everest movie he starts in November. He’ll likely look like on the GQ cover.

  • Nate

    Be still my heart he looks scrumptious in this picture.

  • Malida

    @wtf: what does that have anything to do with it? wtf.

  • THE WAY IT IS

    He likes to goose the guys, so he could call himself Sir GooseGuy.

  • ace11

    did they ask him about his relationship with taylor swift?

  • joe

    @Malida: maybe op was referring to the education part of the interview and jake only finished high school. no college degree.
