Jake Gyllenhaal Jumps Rope on Ellen April 2015

Jake Gyllenhaal Furiously Jumping Rope Will Make You Work Up a Sweat

Jake Gyllenhaal stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, where he talked about getting in shape for his new movie Southpaw. Jake, who plays a boxer in the film, said he mastered the art of jumping rope as part of his training, so Ellen decided to put his skills to the test. Jake had to jump rope for 30 seconds while simultaneously answering pop culture trivia questions in order to raise money for his favorite charity New Eyes, which provides glasses for people who can't afford them. Watch the clip above to see how much money Jake raised (hint: it involves Britney Spears), then find out where he always takes women on a first date.
