Jake Gyllenhaal Love and Other Drugs Interview

Does Your Family's Approval of Your Relationships Matter?


In an interview with the Guardian, Jake Gyllenhaal said women have to meet sister Maggie Gyllenhaal's approval for a relationship to work.

I am inherently a little brother — that's just my nature. It has to do with my sister being very strong and wanting to protect me. It's the natural order of things. That's the way my sister feels about me in every aspect of my life — my work, my relationships. Women have to pass her test. That's very hard for girlfriends.
