Ben Kingsley says Jake Gyllenhaal made himself vulnerable filming Prince of Persia

Jake Gyllenhaal on Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon


Jake Gyllenhaal told Jimmy Fallon how he was banned from Century City Mall for doing something with sparkly fuses. (Maybe, I’m not sure, I wasn’t really listening. I was too busy staring at his pinkie ring.) It was actually a nice change from listening to him talk about how hard it was for him to put on muscle for “Prince of Persia”, because everyone knows the absolute, do all end all, best way to get me to see your movie is to talk incessantly about how awesome your body looks in it.

SIR BEN KINGSLEY has heaped praise on Prince Of Persia's leading man, Jake Gyllenhaal.
The duo star in the Disney video game adaptation - in which Jake plays Prince Dastan and Sir Ben portrays his uncle Nizam - and the British legend described the US actor as "wonderful" because he can let his guard down.

"Jake is a great leading man to work with - he's wonderful to work with because he makes himself vulnerable," said the 66-year-old Gandhi star.

"For a strong young guy like that, not many of his American counterparts are vulnerable. They don't dare to be vulnerable because they think vulnerable is weak. It is not - to be vulnerable is to be very strong."
