Jake Gyllenhaal: 'Prisoners' Tics Happened in My Mind

Jake Gyllenhaal keeps it scruffy while arriving on a flight at LAX Airport on Friday (December 13) in Los Angeles.

Last weekend, the 32-year-old actor donned a beanie and cool kicks while arriving at the same airport for a departing flight.

“The tics and those physical manifestations, that happened in my mind as I was reading it. Just before I made this movie, I was on stage in New York City playing a character who talked a lot, and had a lot of sort of nervous energy,” Jake recently shared to The Wrap about his hit film Prisoners.

He added, “There was a transition period where I moved that anxiety and overactive mind of the character I was playing onstage and narrowed it down into a type of behavior where there was more silence and stillness. And I started trying things onstage, things like the tic.”

    He was so good in Prisoners,the best of all. I’d love to see detective Loki solving another case in another movie.

    I really didn’t like the blinking he did in the movie, it kind of distracted me. I think he overdid it. he did a good job otherwise.

    @jilli:
    Didn’t distract me at all. The blinking made Loki more interesting, showed he had his own internal problems to deal with.

    He needs to find a nice older girl and settle down. The very young models and such with the busy lifestyle aren’t ready to start a family.

    @Lynn: well, he hasn’t been nominated for that blinking yet so maybe it distracted the voters too. personally I don’t think he’s that good of an actor but he falls into a category of a lot of actors. not too many greats out there.
