Jake Gyllenhaal Knows His Food - After All, He and Maggie are Pals with Mario


I never saw the article, but according to the New York Post, it seems like Jake Gyllenhaal offended some fans in February's GQ magazine. The actor-slash-foodie was quoted as saying, "I actually love to go to a farm and get fresh milk or watch a pig get slaughtered." His reps aren't denying the quote and now some fans are horrified and furious. I guess being ignorant about your food is the real way to win fans.

Too bad for Jake, because I doubt his pal Mario will let him get away with food ignorance. Yep you read that right, Mario, as in Mario Batali. In fact, he, his sister Maggie (and their mom Naomi), have appeared on two episodes of Molto Mario (both in 2003). I caught the gnocchi one the other day (thanks to missjq for letting me know when it was on) and I found the dessert episode online. Our lovely video producer took my favorite two bits and turned them into a short clip for you, but the full version is after the jump:
