Not Sure How I Ended Up Binging Funny Jake Gyllenhaal Interviews, but You Should Join Me

Somehow, I've fallen down the rabbit hole of watching Jake Gyllenhaal interviews on YouTube, and there's no way out. It's truly amazing how the 39-year-old actor can go from answering a question so seriously and eloquently to goofing around and cracking a few hilarious jokes. His press junkets with fellow costars, notably Ryan Reynolds and Tom Holland, are especially comical. Case in point: Jake joking about Ryan wearing eyeliner in a Wired interview. There's also the time he impersonated Tom during a game of LADbible's "First Impressions," much to his castmate's chagrin.

Jake also recently made us smile on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, chatting about his love of homemade sourdough. Seriously, this man is a gift. Since his funniest interviews have given me so much joy, I figured I should share the wealth of laughs. Look ahead to indulge in the treasure that is Jake G.
