    Jake is one of the most underrated actors in his field. He's up there with DiCaprio among the best of his generation. I'm still not over how he was snubbed at the Oscars for Nightcrawler.

    Loved absolutely everything he had to say about Brokeback Mountain. Especially what he said about Heath cuz I remember watching several press interviews for the movie and some of the questions and reactions that were given to them were so ridiculous and Heath never wavered in his seriousness and admiration about his role and about the film. He shut down ANY homophobia that was sent his way and never indulged in ANY jokes about the story. Love Jake for bringing that up and man... I miss Heath. Such a kind soul who is dearly missed.

      @Layla wiser,Idk.Jake gets along with everyone tho.haha. But it looks like he is trying hard to blend with others.I feel like as Jake was living in hollywood bubble he didn't fully understand the real world or struggle.That's why he was so closer to heath & till to this date I feel he misses that.

She understands the market.that's why her songs are still stuck on high school level mentality.

    He talks so passionately about acting. You can see is not about ego for him, it's about telling real, deeply human stories. The part about "Brokeback Mountain" really shows that.

      I liked his discussion about Nightcrawler and Spiderman. About how he was taking acting too seriously and lost the fun. He says "it's just acting." I think that's important. It reminds me of Henry Cavill saying that it's just a job when he was asked about actors who take it far too seriously.

      I grew up with lots of homophobia and never saw it until about 2 years ago. I was already at a point where therapy had erased what I was raised with, but that movie truly changed me. Everything about it. The story, the acting, the pace, etc. Such a brilliant film and an important story to tell. I have since recommended it to my other friends and family who still hold homophobic feelings.

    His performance in Nightcrawler completely blew my mind. Lucky for me, i didn't see any trailers or teasers and i knew nothing about the film, because it came out in a time i was busy with a lot of stuff, and one night i was free, and checked my local cinema for a movie, and this was playing in an hour, so i thought, heck why not. Holy crap that was one of the best "heck why not's" of my life. Nightcrawler was way better than i thought it would be, it totally captivated me, i was held hostage in the cinema. This doesn't happen often to me, that a movie can totally trap me like that, and it's mainly because of Jake's performance. I wish i could see that movie over and over and over, like that first time.

    I believe that Jake is one of the best actors working today. You can tell by the way he describes and analyzes these films, that he has a true love for the craft of filmmaking and he puts real thought into the roles he’s played/will play.
    P.S- Also- watching Heath Ledger on screen is always emotional for me. Already he had delivered so many amazing performances and it makes me feel devastated that we will never get to see how his career unfolded.

    Brokeback Mountain is and always has been such an intense emotional movie with a sad but interesting story line - I've seen it probably 5 or 6 times throughout my life.

    Is anyone more dedicated to their characters but also as humble as Jake? He is so human and thoughtful, and just seems to appreciate the gift that is the life he’s been given. I don’t know anyone else that could casually say the Crystals were a family friend and that’s how he got involved with City Slickers, then to still grow up and be humble and grateful daily...that’s special. That’s why he’s special.

    I can't believe he hasn't won an Oscar yet. He's truly one of the greats of his time.

    Jake's choice of films is impeccable. He is my favourite actor because of that, considering him one of many talented and great actors by default, obviously.
    They are weird, dark, twisted. That creates deep curiosity and often scary, yet magical feel to the movies. And that is why cinema is great, not pop-corn flicks, not for me. Nocturnal Animals should have been mentioned.

    Endlessly grateful for the reverence Jake and Health always have spoken about Brokeback Mountain. Especially since it was made during a time where homosexual relationships were seen as a joke. Never once did they let people linger on that and only spoke about the film for what it was: a heartbreaking tale of love.

    Jake Gyllenhaal has one of the best filmographies out there, there's a little bit of everything and so many good movies.

    When I saw Nightcrawler in the theater there were literally moments where I found myself gasping for air because I was holding my breath and on the edge of my seat. That was such an intense story and a great character he portrayed.

    Man, I love Donnie Darko. It came out when I was 20. Still resonates every time I watch it. It doesn't treat the audience like they are idiots. You have to figure out what's happening

    He has so many bangers, still haven't seen some of them. Definitely going to go back and watch a few and maybe rewatch some also.
    He's definitely up there at the top. Never thought I would picture the person playing bubble boy being one of the best actors to ever do it.

    Prisoners, enemy, end of watch, and source code should not have been skipped. The first two at least, with him talking about his time with denis villeneuve and the extraordinary difference in the two films that were released so close together. And then end of watch which still stands as the only of its kind to this day. It was the type of film I thought would be copied on several different levels and just never would, probably because of how difficult it would be to make. And how much more difficult it would be to top. Either way, I love this video, and I love this man as an actor with a true passion. It’s Christian bale and jake gyllenhaal for me…will stay that way forever.

    He's one of my favorite actors, but it's pretty comical to see him dance around the fact he got his first actings gigs because of nepotism through his parents and their friends lol

    I share the same sentiment with a lot of the other commenters here who say Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the greatest actors of his generation. Some of my favorite films of his are in Nightcrawler, Source Code, Brokeback Mountain, Jarhead, Zodiac, and Southpaw (criminally underrated). He just always manages to turn in top-tier performances.
