It's makeover time on I'm a Huge Fan, which means Amanda gets pampered and pretty for Jake Gyllenhaal! Yesterday we watched our winner find out the exciting news and travel to LA to meet Jake at a special Prince of Persia screening on her 25th birthday. Her big day was full of even more surprises — first she got styled by Jeanne Yang, who runs the fashion line Holmes and Yang with Katie Holmes and has worked with tons of stars including Jake, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney, and more! Once Jeanne helped Amanda pick out the perfect LBD, it was back to the SLS Hotel for the finishing touches from a beauty dream team. Rachel Zoe's makeup artist, Joey Maalouf, who is so funny on The Rachel Zoe Project, made Amanda look picture perfect while Theodore Leaf of Sally Hershberger Los Angeles and Shear Genuis was in charge of creating her gorgeous curls. Watch her amazing makeover and stay tuned for the finale of I'm a Huge Fan and her one-on-one interview with Jake tomorrow!

We shared a peek at our screening with Jake and his shirtless teases with the crowd, and now it's time to see all the excitement on I'm a Huge Fan. Amanda was completely surprised when she learned the big news in the Sugar office, and just a few days later she and her sister were flown down to LA along with the PopSugar team thanks to our friends at Virgin America and Disney. Watch part one of her journey and stay tuned tomorrow and Friday for her amazing makeover and so much more Jake just in time for Prince of Persia!
Jake Gyllenhaal brought his baby blues to ETalk in Toronto, Canada yesterday to chat about Prince of Persia with an audience of fans. He flashed a coy smile while answering questions, which surely touched on one of the most popular topics — his shirtless scenes in the movie! Jake has been joking his way through his press tour so far including our screening last week where he declared himself "your Sex in the City!" He also was a big tease about showing off his six-pack to our theater full of girls, but we have a lot of eye candy looking back at his past sexy roles and forward to this one when it comes out on Friday. Also, stay tuned today for the first episode of I'm a Huge Fan with our contest winner and Jake!

He joked about his Memorial Day competition, saying of his own ab-baring role, "I'm your sex and the city!"

The actor told People magazine, "It was so hard. Being an actor is so hard. Being in shape is so hard, too, and being paid to get into shape is even harder — and you can quote me on all of those."
But Jake doesn't get in shape just for work. He says when it comes to physical training, "I like the focus. I'm somebody who likes to kind of keep moving. When you're shooting a movie, the downtime is always the hardest thing, and when you get to be physical in between takes it's actually a good thing, I think, for any actor." Jake was inspired to stay active by Dustin Hoffman when filming together years ago. The renowned actor even gave Jake a walker to use a fitness accessory for triceps dips. Cute, no?
When not on set, Jake still likes to keep up his physique. He says. "You focus on it like an athlete would and it's kind of off-season, but I'm very much a physical and active person. So I like to maintain as much as I can."
Tell me, would you like staying in shape to be part of your job description, or would you stay lean and active no matter what?
