A Scruffy Jake Gyllenhaal Chats Up His Friend and Former Costar Michelle Williams at Her Premiere

Oct 10 2011 - 11:54am

A bearded and bespectacled Jake Gyllenhaal [1] stepped out last night in NYC to support Michelle Williams [2] at her My Week With Marilyn premiere [3]. Jake and Michelle first worked together on Brokeback Mountain, and they stayed so close over the years that he is also her daughter Matilda's godfather. The longtime friends were deep in conversation at the event and posed for pictures together on the red carpet. Michelle wore a seafoam green Dior gown [4] to the New York Film Festival screening, while Jake went casual in a semi-untucked white shirt. He made the trip East following a few months spent mostly in LA, where he's been shooting End of Watch. Before getting back into character as a cop for his new role, Jake capped off the Summer with a trip to Hawaii with his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal [5], where they hit the beach and attended their father Stephen Gyllenhaal's wedding [6] in Oahu.
