You know him from Donnie
Darko if you grew up in the 90s, everyone saw his incredible performance in
Brokeback Mountain and most recently he played Mysterio in Spiderman: Far From
Home. Jake Gyllenhaal has it all. He’s gorgeous, he’s talented, he’s quirky and
funny and he’s such a charmer. Here are some things about Jake Gyllenhaal we
bet you were gonna, conveniently assembled all in one place.
Jake Gyllenhaal was born
on December 19, 1980, in LA. He’s 38, about to turn 39 and he’s looking hot as
hell. Jake’s father Stephen Gyllenhaal is a director and his mother Naomi Foner
is a screenwriter so you could say him and his sister were born to be actors.
Jake started his acting
career pretty young. He was only 10 years old when he got to act opposite Billy
Crystal in City Slickers. He got his first jobs mostly because his father was
in the industry, but since then he’s been really picky with what projects he
chooses. And as we all know, he likes to choose pretty weird stuff, but he does
a great job.
Jake Gyllenhaal perfectly
fits into the category of tall, dark and handsome with his height of 182 cm or
5′ 11″, if you’re still using the imperial system of measurement. But not only
is he all three of those things, but Jake Gyllenhaal is also pretty charming
yet wacky too. A winning combo if you ask me.
Most of us will remember
our first driving lesson. It’s usually a cheap car of the driving instructor or
the family car with a parent sitting next to you, sweating nervously as you try
to figure out how to reverse. But Jake’s first driving lesson was with his
godfather Paul Newman in a car worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Makes
you wonder how stressful was it for Jake, doesn’t it?
