"I want to get every move perfect and I refuse to accept anything less than that.”
- Jake "I'm Really Into Flak Jackets" Gyllenhaal
Check out Jake's outrageous attention to detail in this article about Prince of Persia, in which the author thought using a picture of Jake's face from 2004 was the best way to illustrate the shape Jake got into 6 years later for Prince of Persia.
In fact, let's take a look at the results of Jake's flak jacket workout:
Well done, Jake! Your extreme buffness allowed you to enter the land of arm straps and oversized boots and not look completely ridiculous. Though I think I speak for all involved when I note that this was also the land where you did all of that ab work only to have your chest show up on film for all of, like, 2 seconds. What the hell?
I know there was a market for your midsection because OK! Magazine is still drooling over it (literally; actual quote from their article: "Now excuse us while we wipe the drool from our desks"). They have graced us with some laughably poor-quality shots of your abs from a behind-the-scenes video, but it's all good because you can WATCH THE VIDEO, too, which is a fun time for anyone who enjoys a minute and thirteen seconds of you walking around shirtless while other men talk about how studly you are.
