Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Praise from Ruth Wilson in 'Esquire' UK

Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Praise from Ruth Wilson in 'Esquire' UK

Jake Gyllenhaal looks so handsome on the cover of Esquire UK‘s July 2015 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 34-year-old Southpaw actor had to share with the mag:

On his approach to method acting: “Physicality is a way into the mental state of a character, I get off on knowing that my energy has shifted. My technical side is going, ‘Yeah, you’re a bit of a maniac, but you know how to keep it in check’. But it’s not like this huge deal. It’s that Louis CK thing, [about] when people say they’re ‘starving’. Maybe you should rethink that word? You had a meal four hours ago!”

On preferring Brits: “I’m an Anglophile. Pretty much all of my friends are Brits.”

Ruth Wilson on working with Jake on Broadway: “He’s really generous, he cares. Not just about the work, but about people. If I was ill, he’d provide me with pills and recommend a doctor. And he really brings you into his world. He was born into acting and show business, he knows everyone and everything about it. But he includes you. And I want to say, he’s a really great singer. We’d warm up every day, singing on stage and he knows all the lyrics to Drake songs. And Motown and Springsteen. He knows the words to show tunes, too. We went to dinner with my uncle, who puts on musicals at his Norfolk community centre, and he and Jake were singing show tunes to each other in the middle of Balthazar. He really should do a musical.”

    What, JJJ PPP hasn’t dropped by yet? Here let’s save ‘em some time: “Jake Gyllenhaal is a Zoophile! He’s been screwing German Shepards for years! All the human beings he is surrounded by, are just a cover-up to make him look he’s into “humans”. The truth is he’s into cross-species f**king. Legal in some states and countries (Land of Bosintang, anyone?) – but not all! He better come out as a Proud Zoophile, and Stand With Our Struggle. Watch your (shephard’s) back, Gyllenhowl!”

    I think it’s Southpaw.
    I think he should have been nominated for Nightcrawler, his character was cringe worthy… I get chills thinking about how awkard he made me feel while watching that film.
