If you’ve wondered the motivation behind some of the movie choices that actors make, then Jake Gyllenhaal is here to tell us why he picks the parts that he does… It’s because he’s able to tell a story that he actually cares about.
He said that he enjoys working in the movie business, because he gets the chance to tell stories that he cares about. Since doing his first movie, Donnie Darko, Jake has starred in over fifteen movies. In a recent interview, he said that he likes to choose characters that are of interest to him and also tell stories that are relevant.
He said, “I’m in the business of playing characters. That’s what i’m in. That’s what I want to try and do. The ability to tell stories that you care about, it does give you a great opportunity to do that.”
He went on to reveal, “I didn’t grow up in a Hollywood way. I grew up in a family of people who made movies, and continue to do so to this day.”
