Jake Gyllenhaal cooks 'Beastie Boys' style

"If I wasn't acting I'd be a cook, or working on the line in a kitchen, which is actually a dream of mine, so I'd be doing that," Jake told BBC Radio One.

"I don't have anything I like to cook especially but I like to go down to the farmers' market and then cook with what's in season. I like to go back to the old school, Beastie Boys style with my cooking. It's all about the fresh produce!"

"I ran into Lily Allen yesterday. Yes, she is a bit of a British icon. We were at a restaurant and she was there having lunch. She was going to see my movie End of Watch, coincidently, at the time of speaking. I've met her before, her mum produced the movie called Proof that I was in with Gwyneth Paltrow," Jake explained. "I knew her then, which was before she started singing. When I knew her then she was a teenager, and she's the same now!"

"I pride myself on being brutally honest, I always say something honest but the other person doesn't always like it. I'll then have to make up for it by sending flowers or something," Jake admitted. "I do have a lot of actor pals, but actually most of my pals aren't. They are not a scary as me. I like to be the centre of attention at dinner parties [laughing]." Source:

MSN Movies Live Chat with Jake Gyllenhaal:

-Are there any particular roles you'd like to play that you haven't get? A particular type of character? Also what director would you most like to work with in the future? by Ben Wellings 11:35 AM

-Jake Gyllenhaal: I would love to work with Jean Jacques Audiard or Paul Thomas Anderson, and there are some, I would love one day maybe to play Joe Namath, famous football star, but to me a movie is all about relationships and the reality of those relationships and how honest they are. So very rarely is it about a character or a person, it's more about the heart of the script and the heart of the director telling that story. Source:

Its such a small world - I had no idea Jake had a Lily Allen connection.

That's a great photo of her!

small world indeed, I didn't know Lily Allen's mother, Alison Owen, was one of the producers of "Proof", I quite like her music!

I hope you have very happy Christmas, UltraViolet!
