“I try [to spoil my nieces]. I brought so many balloons to my niece’s eighth birthday — I felt really bad. I knew I wasn’t going to be the one taking them home. I literally brought like 45 balloons. My brother in law was like, ‘Thanks,’” Jake told USA Today. “The next day I asked my niece where all the balloons went. She said, ‘They’re everywhere.’”

Jake Gyllenhaal: Acting is an 'Incredibly Immature & Selfish' Job

Jake Gyllenhaal addresses the crowd before a screening of his new movie Nightcrawler on Saturday night (October 25) at The Rave Theater in Philadelphia, Penn.

The 33-year-old actor, who took a ton of fan selfies, recently opened up about the oddity of being an actor.

“Acting is an incredibly immature and selfish profession, but I also believe on the flip side of that coin, it can also produce great empathy,” Jake said at a recent panel (via THR). “Understand that it is an extraordinarily sensitive job, and I don’t mean to be self-indulgent, but it’s an odd job. It’s an odd thing conjuring up feelings in the midst of all this chaos…it’s magic.”
