Jake Gyllenhaal and Ben Stiller: Humorous Approach

Jake Gyllenhaal at Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time UK Premiere on 9th May, 2010 in London.
"I love my work and care about it,” Jake Gyllenhaal said in this recent interview. “But I’m beginning to have a great sense of humor about it because I just don’t feel like there’s any need to take it all that seriously.”With that declaration, Jake proceeded to give mostly tongue-in-cheek answers to questions. The actor’s jesting mood also stemmed from the movie he was promoting, “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.” After all, when you’re talking about a movie that was adapted from a video game, you can’t be all that serious".

Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor at "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" premiere in Los Angeles, October 2008.
"Ben Stiller claims laughter is the best way to a successful relationship.
“For me, laughter is such a huge part of a relationship”, he said. “My wife has a great sense of humor. What I like is to try to make her laugh". Source:

Ben Stiller and wife Christine Taylor won’t be following the trend of renewing wedding vows for their tenth anniversary, which takes place tomorrow.“If your relationship is in good shape and you’re communicating with each other and you’re close, then that’s what’s important”, says the actor, 44.

"In the film, which was written and directed by indie auteur Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale), the 44-year-old Stiller plays Roger Greenberg, a toxically bitter erstwhile musician. Anxious, self-absorbed and socially inept, Greenberg is the distillation of the omega male roles that have made Stiller famous. From the brainless but “really, really, really ridiculously good-looking” male model Derek Zoolander to the hapless, humiliated son-in-law Greg Focker, Stiller’s body of work has been a study in short-fused, long-suffering loserdom".

“I’m so old that when I was young, there was no such thing as the Young Hollywood Awards”, he quipped while presenting an award to comedienne Whitney Cummings.

Hi Kendra
condivido perfettamente ciò che afferma Jake, nella sua dichiarazione all'intervista, in riferimento al suo modo di approcciarsi al proprio lavoro.
E' veramente meraviglioso ri-vedere Jake più sereno e sorridente.
I love you Jake :-)

Hi, Rosa :)

A guy with a personal, peculiar sense of humour is the sexiest thing in the world in my book. Jake never fails to put a smile on my face!
