It's very sweet what J.Nelson said about Jake.It's the impression I have of him and I'm glad someone who works with so many "celebrities" confirms it

Jake said in an interview: "It bothers me when people say, 'Oh, you're so down to earth—for an actor' -Gyllenhaal tells me over dinner at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. "Even when they don't say 'for an actor,' I feel like that's the implication. Why are the standards so low for performers? I mean, I appreciate it, but it's still funny that people say that all the time."
