Jake Gyllenhaal's Massive Fantasy


ET visits Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of his Prince of Persia movie. He takes a few moments to talk about the film, but more importantly, his physique.

"For all of the people who are massively interested out there, I've probably put on five pounds of muscle. [After the movie] I'm gonna get fat and I'm gonna be happy."

And for those of you who don't recall what those five pounds look like, here's a refresher.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  4. He looks hotter with short hair but he's always adorable and his smile melts me.

  9. Meh. Wouldn't it have been nice if the studio had hired a Persian to play a Persian? Seriously, how many Iranians/Iraquis are pale, white skinned men with blue eyes? Oh, that's right, most have olive to brown skin and dark eyes.

    Yep, and Jesus was blonde, blue-eyed, and pale white-skinned Jew like most Jewish men were 2000 years ago.

    Love that progressive, Hollywood racism.

  10. Noah,

    At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if they had Brad Pitt as Shaka Zulu.

    They casted John Wayne as Genghis Khan. Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra. Even actual Italians aren't "white" enough for Hollywood. The only time they're allowed to portray themselves is in movies about the mafia. All the Greco-Roman and Medieval Italy roles go to actors from the British Isles.

  11. He's cute, yes, but his career has really nosedived. This looks awful.

  12. Persians are Aryan, not Arab, and Jake is half-Jewish/half-Dutch, so there is some valid connection there, but they were more going for name-recognition and some resemblance to the video game character look.

  13. I'm still going to see it, but this movie is not looking good...

  14. This men don't look like persian men. It will be necessary that computer animation change his face and the color of his skin.
    It is absurd know thw families of actors, actresses and directors of Hollywood dominate this industry. Hollywood don't make selection for their employees and don't look more tha actors of another country or with character whose their films need.
    Nowadays all these prodution become money of merchandise and in case of Prince of Persia will become money of video games Mafia.
    Jake Gyllenhaal and Bruckbeimer can watch their own films alone at home!

  15. Here's a picture of the character from the game:

    Looks like a pretty close match to me, in terms of colouring at least.

  16. It's freaking Hollywood MORONS! Get a grip and realize that this is a MOVIE, not reality, Jeez! Ever seen the Wizard of Oz? The witch is green... ever seen a green witch in the real world? Did you complain about that? If this is your worry then you need to get a life and an understanding of how different movies and real life actually are. I'm frightened by the ignorance and anger, but also relatively amused.

  17. Actually, I know a whole Persian family that are white with (dark) blue eyes. It's common in some areas (mostly Northern "Persian" areas.) When I was a kid, I didn't even realize they were Persian until they spoke and the grandfather would tell me stories about why they have that eye color and skin color. Mostly it comes down to their people came from the Ural Mountains and blended with the local tribes thousands of years ago. Plus, there was a healthy dose of mixing of bloods with the conquered cultures by the Persian empire.

    However, as I got older, I noted that their facial features were distinctly Persian -- so Gyllenhaal is out on that one.

  18. Maybe this movie will make the Iranians more loving toward the Jews.
    Not all Jews are scary Hasidic fundies!

  19. WHAT
    There are differences between blond or dark people with blue eyes. The germans are very different of english people or french people etc...
    Jake Gyllenhaal has a type of people of north Europa. He will never look like persian!
    Another son of filmmaker Robert Downey Jr., the criminal whose was several year in prison, had been doing a film whoe the had a make up as negro men (like in old Hollywood films).
    It is impressive that all these families whose practice nepotism dominate Hollywood.
    Lawrence of Arabia had lot of actors whose came from this region...
    The most part of films that Jake Gyllenhaal had been make was with his sister, his father, the director Stephen Gyllenhaal and the men of his sister 2 times. In Redition the family put his lover Reese Witherspoon to work together.
    I am curious to see the son and daughter of Reese Witherspoon and the daughter of his sister in film too..
    There are anther actors and actresses nepotism in Hollywood. The Dew Barrymore, Angelina Jolie and the son of her aunt George Cloney, Kate Hudson, Paltrow, Coppolas (Nicolas Cage, Sofia Cage etc...)Daniel Day-Lewis...etc!!!
    I will watch a video of some relatives but I haven't wish to watch the films of these all idiots!
