LA Times: Jake Gyllenhaal & Others Talk Inside Hollywood
21 November, 2017 Author: Catagories: Gallery Updates, Interviews, Stronger

Earlier this month, The Envelope gathered some of the industry’s top actors not just to talk about their current, award-contending films but to take the temperature of a community rattled by revelations of sexual harassment and assault claims against the likes of movie titan Harvey Weinstein and others.

Beyond that difficult subject, Times film writers Amy Kaufman and Mark Olsen led Gary Oldman, Hugh Jackman, James Franco Jake Gyllenhaal, Jeremy Renner and relative newcomer Timothée Chalamet through discussions of the best working environment on set, obligations to the real people an actor portrays, giving the wacky an emotional depth and, yes, Chalamet’s peach scene.

Here is an excerpt from their conversation edited for length and clarity.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Not Worried About Looking Cool
6 November, 2017 Author: Catagories: Interviews, News & Headlines

Jake Gyllenhaal rarely attends fashion shows. He estimates he’d been to only one before he stepped into the world that Raf Simons created for Calvin Klein’s spring/summer 2018 fashion show this past July—a show that proved to be the hottest ticket of New York Fashion Week: Men’s. That’s why, as he made his way in and out of the venue, some folks took note. What is he doing here?

That question was answered last month, when Gyllenhaal’s campaign for Calvin Klein Eternity was revealed. Simons was named creative director of the famed American fashion house in August of 2016 to much fanfare, and has since set about reinvigorating the label. The new fragrance campaign—starring Gyllenhaal alongside model Liya Kebede and four-year-old actress Leila—is part of that movement to explore new territory. Unlike pretty much every other fragrance ad you’ve ever seen, it’s subtle. Quiet. And instead of focusing on sex, it focuses on the idea of family.

Jake Gyllenhaal on ‘Stronger’ & Playing Jeff Bauman
4 November, 2017 Author: Catagories: Interviews, Stronger

Four years have passed since bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon that turned then-27-year old Jeff Bauman into a double amputee. In that time, Bauman’s inspiring story – which for many symbolizes Boston’s strength in bouncing back from the tragedy – has been captured in a book, which was then adapted into screenplay and now, the movie “Stronger,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Bauman.

During that time, Bauman’s recovery – physically, emotionally and mentally – did not happen all at once, nor was it a linear process. In fact, according to Gyllenhaal, Bauman was in a dramatically different headspace at the end of shooting “Stronger” compared to when he saw an early version of the movie.

“In this past year he’s gotten sober, he’s in therapy three times a week and he has conscientiously decided to be a deeply involved father to his daughter,” said Gyllenhaal in an interview with IndieWire.

Jake Is a Self-Described Purist Who Loves The Simple Things
20 October, 2017 Author: Catagories: Advertisements, Interviews

Earlier this year, Jake Gyllenhaal was amongst the many incognito celebrities at Raf Simons’ Spring 2018 menswear show, which was held on a steamy summer night at a lantern-lit outdoor market under the bridge in New York’s Chinatown. It turns out, that was no accident. Like many of the stars who attended the buzzy show–including A$AP Rocky, Ashton Sanders–Gyllenhaal is a new muse of Calvin Klein’s chief creative officer Raf Simons, and is now starring in the campaign for Eternity, one of Calvin Klein’s most iconic fragrances.

Gyllenhaal and Simons first met in February, when the fashion designer attended a performance of the actor’s Broadway show, Sunday in the Park with George. “Raf said, ‘I like you, and I’d like to collaborate with you on this idea,'” Gyllenhaal recalled. As it turns out, that’s exactly how Gyllenhaal likes to choose his projects.
