Jake Gyllenhaal & Matt Damon connection

Jake Gyllenhaal chews on his iPhone headphones while walking around the Soho neighborhood on Thursday afternoon (August 29) in New York City. The 32-year-old actor just secured an appearance on Bravo’s Inside the Actors Studio, according to The Wrap. Jake‘s appearance on the show, which is hosted by James Lipton, will air on Thursday, September 19 at 8/7c. On the episode, he discussed his wide range of films, including the upcoming Prisoners, as well as his famous Hollywood family and his relationship with the late Heath Ledger. Source:

"The nice thing about ["The Zero Theorem"] is Christoph [Waltz], thanks to Quentin [Tarantino]’s films, has become bankable to a certain level and that was fantastic and that’s how we made it; not because of the ideas but because Christoph and I were able to work together. And then I sweetened the load even more with friends like Tilda [Swinton], Matt Damon, and David Thewlis all coming into play. Source:

-I remember asking Heath Ledger after Brokeback Mountain, “How’d you do that scene with Jake?” —meaning the scene where they start ferociously kissing. He said, “Well, mate, I drank a half case of beer in my trailer.” I started laughing, and he goes, “No, I’m serious. I needed to just go for it. If you can’t do that, you’re not making the movie.” -Matt Damon in Playboy magazine
