Big Movie Premiere hangs with BROTHERS star Jake Gyllenhaal, who talks about the movie's themes of redemption and loss. See what Jake had to say about working with co-stars Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman.

Tobey Maguire went to a children's holiday party with daughter Ruby, 3, in Santa Monica on Thursday.

"The performances are, for the most part, quite good. Portman’s delicate, fragile work is the standout—she captures a woman doing her best to be strong, but perpetually fighting off tears, choosing not to let them go. It’s a beautifully constructed, deeply felt performance, and watching it causes one to seriously question the sanity of Slate’s Dana Stevens, whose stunningly wrong-headed review is basically a drive-by shooting of the actress (let us never forget, when considering Stevens’ thoughts on the current cinema, that she wrote City of Angels and For Love of the Game). Gyllenhaal is similarly impressive; his is a tricky performance that keeps a lot of things hidden, from his raffish sense of humor to his quiet, bitter anger, and then gradually reveals them".

Prince of Persia : The Sands of Time - Making of.

New promotional still of Jake Gyllenhaal as Dastan in "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time".

"According to director Jerry Bruckheimer, Jake worked out so hard for his role in the upcoming flick, his admirers will be stunned by the Brokeback Mountain star’s sexy physique.

“Jake really worked hard for this role,” says Jerry. “He worked for months before the movie. He trained every single day, he rode bikes, he lifted weights, he had a very specific diet. He couldn’t eat any fats.

It was really a lot of protein, and all during filming he was working out. In one hundred and twenty degree heat. People saw him after a long day, at seven at night, taking a jog. He kept it up through the whole thing, both here and in Morocco.

Women should be very pleased!”
