 Jake Gyllenhaal Biography

Jake Gyllenhaal was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of director Stephen Gyllenhaal and producer/screenwriter Naomi Foner Gyllenhaal. His sister Maggie Gyllenhaal is an actress.

Gyllenhaal made his film debut at age eleven in City Slickers (1991) and was in October Sky (1999) before being cast in the title role in Donnie Darko (2001), for which he was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for best actor. Jake's performance as a troubled psychotic won him excellent reviews and the film quickly acquired cult status. He played opposite Jennifer Aniston in another Sundance favourite in 2002's The Good Girl and once again earned critical acclaim for his role in Lovely and Amazing with Catherine Keener. Jake also starred in the Touchstone Pictures romantic comedy Bubble Boy. Loosely based on the story of David Vetter, the film portrays the title character's adventure outside the confines of his bubble as he goes after the woman he loves before she marries the wrong man. He also starred in The Day After Tomorrow (2004), which co-starred Dennis Quaid.

Brokeback Mountain (2005), which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger as sheep herders who secretly fall in love in the 1960s won the coveted Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival (2005). The film went on to win four Golden Globes, four BAFTA Awards and three Academy Awards. It is officially the most honored film in cinematic history. He was nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Supporting Actor for this performance. He also won the Best Supporting Actor BAFTA for the same role and received a Best Supporting Actor nomination and Best Film Ensemble nomination from the Screen Actors Guild.

When asked about the kissing scenes with Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain, Jake stated that "As an actor, I think we need to embrace the times we feel most uncomfortable." He also commented that "I've never really been attracted to men sexually, but I don't think I would be afraid of it if it happened.".

Jake Gyllenhaal dated Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis in 2001. But his most notable relationship has been with actress Kirsten Dunst. Introduced through his sister, the two began dating in September 2002 and were reported to have officially broken up in July 2004; however, the relationship remained off and on until August 2005. Together they own a German Shepherd named Atticus Finch and Jake also owns a Puggle named Boo Radley, after characters from the Harper Lee novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.

Jake's sister Maggie Gyllenhaal is engaged to actor Peter Sarsgaard, Jake's co-star in Jarhead, and they announced in April 2006 that they are expecting their first child in October.
