While Jake's eyebrows could win prizes - as I'm sure you'll agree looking at these new old photos from IHJ - Jake has been slightly less successful of late in the awards although, judging by how little Jake has been in the public eye in recent months, I think he's done pretty well. Jake didn't win a Scream, thanks to some show called Doctor Who (never been the same since the Tom Baker days). But who cares about that when you have another of those glorious polls that demonstrate that Jake is on our minds.
In this latest poll, Jake has been voted as one of the favourite celebrities to squish up to on a flight. It doesn't specify which flight although, obviously, a transatlantic flight would be far preferable to a hop across the English Channel during which you're lucky if you get a biscuit, let alone the chance to snuggle up to some unsuspecting movie star. The poll also seems to presuppose that we're all flying First Class, which is fine by me. Jake got 21% of the vote (although how many people voted is as big a mystery as why the veggie option on a flight is always tikka misala).
Something to consider while on that transatlantic flight, in first class, with tikka masala and a handy moviestar to comfort one through those turbulent bumps, is the sad fact that Jake Gyllenhaal is now, like me, slightly over 25 years old. The fact that actors such as Jake and Leo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire made such an impact on the big screen while so young (can one believe that Jake was younger than 25 when he played Jack Twist? Remarkable), begs the question of who are the youngsters making a similar mark. The NY Mag has been having a ponder. Many thanks to Mermon for such an interesting link.
Thanks to IHJ for the pics!
