Jake Gyllenhaal for GQ Australia

Jake Gyllenhaal for GQ Australia

Jake Gyllenhaal is looking handsome as always in the new photoshoot for GQ Australia, he also gave a interview for the magazine.  Check the pictures in our gallery and read the interview below:

In a chic New York office, Jake Gyllenhaal is sitting alongside a man named Jeff Bauman. Bauman is an author, a motivational speaker and an advocate but is best known as a man who lost both legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. During his rehabilitation, he also became a rare beacon of hope, shining out of a dark tragedy.

The pair are interviewing each other for a Facebook Q&A, as part of the promotion for Stronger, the movie adaptation of Bauman’s best-selling book of the same name, which he co-wrote in the aftermath of the attack.

Gyllenhaal portrays Bauman in the film, a role which has already garnered attention this awards season. The interview looks to be your typical junket fare – a bit of back and forth about the film, before those involved simply sit back and take turns blowing smoke up each other’s arses. But it’s not.

The actor earnestly introduces Bauman, who is wearing cut-off shorts that expose his prosthetic legs. “I can start off,” suggests Bauman, before launching into his first question. “You know Van Wilder, right? Ryan Reynolds? I really wanted him to play me. I was just wondering why he didn’t.”

There’s a comic pause, as Gyllenhaal recoils in mock-astonishment. “He would have been better, I think,” adds Bauman.

It’s hilarious. This, in a nutshell, sums up the friendship the two men have forged over the past two-and-a-half years. “Full-on piss-taking, left and right,” laughs Gyllenhaal. As it happens, Gyllenhaal and Reynolds are BFFs. They co-starred last year in the movie Life and each own loft apartments in the same converted factory building in Manhattan.

Jake Gyllenhaal in Stronger

“My dad always told me, ‘The job of an artist is to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed.’ That’s always in my mind. It’s why I’m attracted to projects that are maybe going to illuminate something to you about yourself. It’s always a little frightening because you don’t know what you’re going to discover.”
