What is your favorite Jake movie?
Donnie Darko, it inspired me to create this fansite in the first place.

When did you first see Jake?
I first saw Jake in October Sky when it first came out, but I thought nothing of it. In the summer of 2003 I went on vacation to Peru and my friend Melissa who came with us told us to buy Donnie Darko. When I saw it I became an instant fan and when I came back home I rented and bought all his movies and that’s when it all started!

Have you ever met Jake?
Yes! I actually did get to meet Jake at the New York City Jarhead premiere in late October 2005. I asked him if he knew about IHJ and he smiled, nodded and said “Yeah!”. I then told him I was the girl who owned it and he came up to me, put his arm around me and we got our picture taken! You can read more about my encounter here.

I also met Jake during his visit to TRL in February 2007. I was lucky enough to be invited to the taping and got to have a few words with Jake himself. He was SUPER nice and really appreciative over the work both Stephanie and I do for the site.

What are your interests?
I’m basically a typical teenage girl. I love hanging out with my friends, going shopping, listening to good music and meeting new people. I enjoy web design and art in general. I feel like its a positive outlet for me. OH and Jake of course is one of my interests. He’s just such a wonderful actor and I can’t wait to see what he has to bring for the future. No matter what I will always be a “Gyllenhaalic”.
