Jake Gyllenhaal cozied up to his Source Code costar Michelle Monaghan last night on the black carpet at their big LA premiere. The actors also had Vera Farmiga, along with her husband, Renn Hawkey, and Jeffrey Wright on hand for the debut of the thriller and love story mix, in which Jake's character relives an eight-minute period over and over. We snagged a minute with Jake on his way inside, and he divulged that, unlike his role, there isn't much in his life he'd choose to do again. He has a no-looking-back policy ever since his buddy Chris Cooper gave him a piece of advice, saying it's best to live without regrets. Jake also spoke about his work with Edible Schoolyards, revealing his favorite meals are local and unfussy — check out more from the screening on today's PopSugar Rush!
Jake Gyllenhaal was a lucky man with his two beautiful costars, Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan, on either arm at the SXSW premiere of their movie Source Code on Friday. Their romance and action-packed film brought big name talent to the festival, though Jake's experience there wasn't all quite so smiley. That night Jake had an unfortunate run-in with a fan, when he caught a guy snapping a picture of him in a restroom. Things got heated for a moment, but it got sorted out, and the photo was deleted. During Saturday's discussion panel Jake had this to say about the incident, "I think it’s an appropriate space to keep privacy. I hope that people wouldn’t disagree with me on that." The hot actor seemed to be good-natured about the whole thing and was also excited that the trip to Austin, TX meant bringing his best friend who lives there to the red-carpet screening.
Cool-toned raspberry lip color, paired with a red patterned dress, makes for an unexpected yet stunning color pairing on Vera Farmiga. A flowing, belted silhouette, chunky jewelry, and t-strap heels give it all a Bohemian-like feel. Vera even has a new, darker hair color that really makes those blue eyes pop. But do you think her look is hot — or not?Vote on all of our Independent Spirit Awards polls here!
Part heist flick, part comedy, Henry's Crime stars Keanu Reeves as a man who serves time for robbing a bank — a crime that he didn't commit. When he gets out of the slammer, he decides he might as well rob the bank for real. Along the way, he gets hit by a car driven by a beautiful actress (Vera Farmiga) and conspires with a former inmate (James Caan), who helps him hatch his scheme. Oh, and the plan involves acting in a production of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, where he sports an unusually pronounced goatee.
If the film sounds somewhat convoluted and silly, it is. That's precisely why I'm interested! I'd rather see Reeves in a quirky comedy over a drama any day (after all, it's kind of hard to take him seriously after this). The majority of you say you love the guy, so will you go see him in Henry's Crime? Watch the preview, and share your thoughts when you read more
Jake Gyllenhaal may be about to steam up the screen with Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs, but come Spring, he'll be putting his clothes back on — and jumping from identity to identity for Source Code. In the futuristic thriller, Gyllenhaal plays an officer who is transported into the body of another man via a very fancy computer's source code.His mission is to prevent the train he's been put on from blowing up, while assuming the identity of a commuter. The catch is that he only has eight minutes to figure out who the bomber is, thereby saving the train full of passengers and thwarting future terrorist attacks. Luckily, if he fails, he has the chance to start all over again (kind of like Groundhog Day meets Quantum Leap). There's a love angle too, as Gyllenhaal's character begins to feel an urgency to save a woman on the train (Michelle Monaghan). I'm a big fan of Gyllenhaal, but I feel like we've seen iterations of this story over and over again. The movie comes out April 15, 2011, but watch the trailer now when you just read more
