Don't Forget Me

Promise me that's all I want. Just a promise that you will never forget me. Tell me I changed you somehow. Let me know that I had an impact on your life. Promise me that you will always remember me. Losing you was hard enough, but I don't want to live knowing I meant absolutely nothing to you.

Jake Gyllenhaal, enjoying the comedy

Jake Gyllenhaal at 'Prince of Persia' Panel at WonderCon 2010

"Jake Gyllenhaal loves comedy.
The 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' actor insists he wants to make more movies that do not take themselves seriously, because it is such a challenging genre to get right.
He said: "Comedy is really what I enjoy the most. And it's what I find hardest. Earnest is f**king easy.

"Finding the comedy in a situation is always the hardest thing, and I think as an actor you should always try and find the hardest thing."
Despite claiming to find comedy difficult, Jake had no difficulty getting laughs with his 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' co-star Gemma Arterton, which she claims is because they forged such a good friendship off camera.

She explained: "We have this kind of banter anyway, as Jake and Gemma. So that kind of transfers to the characters. There's a lot of witty remarks, cutting each other down."

Jake Gyllenhaal and his gaming habits

"I sat down with Jake on Saturday to talk about his gaming habits, his thoughts on the 3D craze taking over the film industry today, and his transformation into a hunky action-adventure star.Jake Gyllenhaal in - WonderCon Interview, on 3rd April 2010.

On what drew him to Prince of Persia:
There are a lot of things. One was the character, 'cause for me, whenever I choose a movie it's the character. I thought — at least as it was written — [Prince Dasdan] was wry and funny and had a good time, but at the same time kicked some ass. But then I also like the idea that it was based on a video game. I like to do things that people have tried their hand at and haven't succeeded. Maybe it's a riskier thing to do, but I like that. And I knew that there would be a huge audience of people that I would be trying to appease and that kinda turned me on too. And we're bringing it to younger kids, kids who have never played the video game before and never experienced it.
On whether he's played the original Prince of Persia, and if he's a gamer: I have played it, but I'm not a gamer in general. I definitely have had my fun on the Wii. Being an actor you have a lot of time on your hands in between set-ups and things so there's always the opportunity on set. A portable gaming device is always fun. I played a lot of video games when I was a kid. I really loved Metroid when I was a kid. I played that game all the time. Zelda was super dope and it may have been one of my favorites only because the casing was gold. I'm not really sure actually if it was the journey of it or that the casing was gold but I loved that game, and traditional things like the classic Super Mario Bros. and Mike Tyson's Punchout.
How he feels about 3D in the film industry: Well, I think it's all about intention. Like Jim Cameron made Avatar, and his intention was to use 3D. Subsequently I think people have tried to join the bandwagon without understanding the creative side of what 3D is. Whenever you have a tool, I think someone should become proficient in that tool. I don't think you just add it to your arsenal and be like "I know how to do this." Regardless, Avatar wouldn't be as amazing as Avatar is — although it's extraordinary on a visual level — without a great story. And I think storytelling has lasted thousands of years as a result of the fact that twists, and turns, and unexpected things happen in stories that blow people's minds, and that's what lasts. We want to tell a great story — 2D, 3D, a great story is a great story.
On if he's caught the action genre bug, and if he liked doing his own stunts: I kinda am, yeah. I kinda am. I was [excited to do my own stunts], I mean that's the reason to do it. You're making a movie based on a video game, It's gonna be physical, and if you don't do it, how lame is that? I really had to ask myself, "Are you ready for this? Would you learn how to do Parkour, would you learn how to sword fight for real?" And I tried to be game for everything. I really tried to be. And I was. I did it even though sometimes I didn't succeed at it all the time, I tried each one of the things". Source:

Flirting with Isabel Lucas?

Jake Gyllenhaal & Rachel McAdams at 82nd Annual Academy Awards on 7th March 2010."When Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams presented an award at the Oscars, some fans thought they saw sparks. But alas, it seems, our dreams are not to be – Jake, it appears, only has eyes for Isabel Lucas.
Currently in Montreal, shooting ‘Source Code’ a sci-fi drama about a soldier who wakes up in the body of someone who witnesses a disaster, Jake was seen last night at ‘Garde Manger’, an unassuming but elegant seafood restaurant tucked into a side street by the banks of the St. Lawrence River.
With him was Isabel Lucas, whom you’ll know best from her role as Alice in 2009’s ‘Transformers 2.’ She was also the passenger in Shia LaBeouf’s car on that night in July of 2008 when he nearly got killed.

Dressed in a white shirt and jeans and – according to Laney – looking even hotter than most women could stand, 29-year old Jake was ‘all cuddled up” with Ms. Lucas, and on the rare occasions when the pair weren’t close enough to share DNA Jake was trying to get Izzy to dance. She was too shy.
– On the other side of the room sat Kirsten Dunst, who is also in Montreal working on ‘Upside Down’ which tells the tale of a man [Jim Sturgess] who searches an alternate universe for the girl he loved in his youth. Kirsten spent a lot of time on her phone…Spreading the news about Jake, perhaps? Source:
