It’s sort of hard not to love Jake Gyllenhaal. The star has been working pretty consistently since his one-two punch of “Donnie Darko” and “October Sky” at the turn of the millennium, and, over 15 years later, he’s still surprising us with performances in films like “Nightcrawler,” “Prisoners” and possibly even this week’s must-see-in-IMAX thriller “Everest.”
In an exclusive clip from this intimate conversation with Sam Jones, Gyllenhaal shares what he has learned about having “what you would call, I guess, success,” in his very early 20s. The humble actor talks graciously about what he’s learned in the film industry in the last 15 years and the friends he’s made thanks to his most recent string of films. Check out the exclusive clip above (plus additional footage below) and watch the full episode of “Off Camera with Sam Jones” when it returns to DirecTV’s Audience Network September 21 at 8pm.
