What Did Jake Gyllenhaal Have To Say About Taylor Swift To Howard Stern?

7/23/2015 9:48am EDT
jake gyllenhaal and taylor swift
Jake Gyllenhaal wasn't going to fall into Howard Stern's trap of badmouthing ex-Taylor Swift.

When the "Southpaw" actor appeared on the host's Sirius XM radio show, he was careful to allow Stern to do all the talking and comment very little.

He basically declined to talk about Swift, despite Stern's attempts at getting him to crack on the relationship.

The "America's Got Talent" host remarked to the actor that when he promoted "Southpaw" at "Good Morning America," the show played Swift's latest tune "Bad Blood" as he was introduced.

"Were you are of that?" he asked.

"No," 34-year-old G...

Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw
Jake Gyllenhaal has seriously buffed up for his new film Southpaw, about a champion boxer whose bad temper sets off a melee after a press event during which his wife, played by Rachel McAdams, is shot and killed.

He goes on the downward spiral, first losing his home and fortune and then losing custody of his daughter, who is put into a group foster home.

Naturally, he begins a career comeback in order to win his life back and regain custody of his daughter.

Gyllenhaal, who muscled up for the film, got himself into serious shape, and, according to Us Weekly, he even did his own boxing.

The star, who acted in and produced his upcoming film "Nightcrawler," told "I'm searching... but I have yet to feel presumptuous enough. (I'll know when it found it) when my heart lines up with the material... in a visual way."

Celebrities With Royal Blood
There's Hollywood royalty, and then there's the blue blood ancestry that neither talent (nor money) can buy.

It's believed that Jolie is related, on her mother's side, to French King Philip II, known as Philip Augustus. He ruled from 1180 to 1223. Philip transformed France from a small feudal state into the wealthiest and most powerful country in Europe.

Do These Hollywood Actors Look Better Or Worse With Facial Hair?
Facial hair can make a man look sophisticated or like a slob. Charming or a creep. Dozens of A-list actors in Hollywood have tried a beard on for size, so tell us – do these guys look better or worse with their facial hair?

For Argo, Ben Affleck made like a hockey player and kept a beard for "the playoffs," AKA awards season. He shaved it off at an Oscars after-party when his film won Best Picture.

George Clooney, like Ben Affleck, grew a "producer beard" while Argo was striving for awards. He also rocked just a moustache for a bit, but for the last year or so he's been clean-shav...

Hollywood's Hottest Celebrity Siblings
Hollywood is full of sexy celebrity siblings who share the spotlight, often in the same discipline.

Sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles have both demonstrated their musical chops over the years, but Beyonce is by far the bigger star. However, Solange has made a dent in the fashion industry and is often watched for her clothing and hairstyle choices.

The Hemsworth brothers stormed Hollywood in recent years for their work in popular film franchises such as "The Hunger Games" and "The Avengers." The Australian-born brothers will likely continue to produce box office hits in years to come.

Jake Gyllenhaal missed out on the role of a lifetime - because he didn't know he needed a British accent.

The Hollywood Reporter held its annual actors roundtable with Matthew McConaughey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, Josh Brolin and Michael B.

Jake Gyllenhaal is losing weight for a film role - a lot of it. The actor has dropped over 20 pounds to play a crime reporter in upcoming film "Nightcrawler."

The actor showed up to the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards on Monday night looking quite thin and very different from the guy who bulked up for "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" in 2010.

Gyllenhaal told reporters: "I knew that my character was literally and figuratively hungry, so I played him so he was always a bit hungry.
"I've lost probably a little over 20 pounds, something like that... It's no different to getting into ...

Jake Gyllenhaal Recalls Missing Out On 'Mighty Ducks' Role

Review: 'Prisoners' Is One Of The Best Thrillers In Years

9/20/2013 3:00pm EDT
In A Nutshell: If you can stomach the film's intense and graphic scenes, the film is worth it!  Prisoners is 2013's ”Silence of the Lambs.” It is that damn good!

At first glance, Prisoners may seem nothing more than a dark, cliché and an unoriginal thriller. There is nothing new about the all too common story of child abduction and the havoc it wreaks on families and communities. But Canadian director Denis Villeneuve avoids all the pitfalls of having a big budget Hollywood debut (he received an Oscar nomination for his first foreign-language film Incendies) and delivers a truly riveting,...

Western film "Jane Got A Gun" is facing another delay: Bradley Cooper has left the production, leaving producers to find a leading actor - again.

The project last made news when Michael Fassbender left the production so he could film X-Men: Days of Future Past instead. Soon after, director Lynne Ramsay was canned when she failed to show up to work.

Jude Law was given the lead role, but he left soon after Ramsay did. Gavin O'Connor is currently holding onto the director's chair after being hired for the gig. Natalie Portman has been attached to the production from the beginning.

Jake Gyllenhaal's 5 Best Movies
You can say this about Jake Gyllenhaal: there’s little chance he’ll ever be typecast. Thanks to his deliberate choice to vary his roles as much as possible, Gyllenhaal continues to be one of the most unpredictable actors working today. He’s done big budget blockbusters (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) and smaller, contemplative indie films (Proof, Moonlight Mile). With each film, Gyllenhaal seems to pick roles in which he can challenge himself as an actor, rarely playing the same type of character more than once.

This weekend Gyllenhaal will continue to surprise audiences with a grit...

Jake Gyllenhaal was left scarred by his first midnight ride-along with Los Angeles police officers as he prepared to play a cop in new film End Of Watch - a man was murdered in front of him.

The Jarhead star spent months patrolling the mean streets at night before filming on the gritty new movie began, and he admits the experience gave him a real taste of what police in Los Angeles have to put up with.

And his very first night on the beat was one that really tested his nerve.

He tells WENN, "The very first ride-along that I went on someone was murdered in front of me. It was a gang shoot...

They worked a 12-hour night shift three times a week to get into character as crack cops.
