You can always rely on Page Six to unearth the most irrelevantly fascinating tidbits of celebrity lives, and their latest might just be the most irrelevant and fascinating of all. It involves reputed actor Jake Gyllenhaal and his photo habits.
Let’s pull an excerpt: A Page Six spy recently overheard a conversation in a downtown art framing store between a collector…“Jake Gyllenhaal comes in all the time and I’ve never framed something for him that’s not a picture of himself.” It’s the kind of blasphemous gossip that could somewhat alter your image of Jake Gyllenhaal from guy-next-door, whose incomparable talent made him one of the industry’s most-revered, to textbook narcissist, who was a bullet dodged for Taylor Swift. And yet, we wouldn’t blame him.
Still, Gyllenhaal has grown up on camera, and, as a result, we have access to a plethora of images of him courtesy of Getty. Through the decades, he’s proved quite expressive, contorting his face and body to create truly once-in-a-lifetime pictures. ELLE has reported that a source close the actor merely enjoys framing his old movie posters—a completely justifiable commemoration of his work. Still, if Gyllenhaal were to celebrate his life’s experiences via a series of costly frames, these are the photos he should use to do it.
Oh, you FORGOT they hung out that one time and then canoodled with Jay-Z? Shame on you.
Here’s Jake, thriving in a double-breasted tuxedo and serving as the filling in a Blake Lively/Ryan Reynolds sandwich. We cannot help but stan.
Another celebrity sandwich—this time, less happy.
No one does a press junket like Gyllenhaal. Look, he’s fully engaged, ready to spit filmic truth. Take note.
King of kids’ birthday parties.
If you had photographic evidence of Dustin Hoffman trying to lift up YOUR shirt while Susan Sarandon watched, tell me you wouldn’t print that puppy out.
Just the lads! Just lad things!
THIS is 2004. Rock on, Scarlett.
This is the Jake we know and love—never allowing the perpetual tediousness of the red carpet get him down, serving the kind of twinkly eye that could stop traffic. Go off, Jake. ‘Gram this for sure (and frame it, obviously).
