American actor Jake Gyllenhaal, Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal, was born on December 19, 1980 in Los Angeles, California, United States to Naomi Foner, a film producer and screenwriter and Stephen Gyllenhaal, a film director. Even at a young age, Jake had always been exposed to the entertainment industry as he worked as a child actor appearing in different movies like A Dangerous Woman, City Slickers, Darko which is an indie classic movie released in 2001 and Brokeback Mountain for which he earned an Oscar nomination.
As part of the entertainment industry, Jake has always been noted as one of the hottest and sexiest male celebrities of all time. Probably his addiction to working out is one of the reasons why the actor is just gaining a lot of positive feed backs about his total physique. “I’ve had to teach myself to slow down a bit,” he shares. “Because I get so into [working out], it becomes a real addiction.” No wonder the 34-year-old actor has always been in good shape.
Jake explains that doing exercises such as running helps him feel and think better. “It’s not: ‘I’m having a sh*tty day and I’m going to go for a run,’ but ‘I’m having a sh*tty day and I’m going for a run and I’m going to try to work out what’s going on.’ Not just get my serotonin levels up and feel good. I’m going to think about things. And the only way you can do that is to slow the pace down.”
