Since February 29 comes along only once every four years, let's celebrate, Jake Gyllenhaal style. Or Jake-Gyllenhaal-style.
Only a few hours left, but maybe well get a photo. We did last Leap Day (see below).
ETA: Jake likes Leap Day! And Reese :)
See the rest of the pics at IHJ.
That was Oscar Day, 2004. Later, Jake attended the awards, with Kirsten. This is one of my favorite photos of them:
Speaking of quadrennial experiences, 2004 also saw Jake campaign to get young people to vote:
We'll see if Jake gets out on the campaign trail this year once the Democrats make their choice.
Here's a list Jake would have belonged on even in 2004: Entertainment Weekly's Top 30 Actors Under 30:
BROKE OUT IN... Donnie Darko (2001), as a brooding teen with visions of an oracular rabbit.
WHY HIM Brokeback Mountain (2005) made him an easy target for jokes — but also earned him an Oscar nod. And he's consistently taken solid roles (Zodiac, Jarhead) that make up for the ones that aren't quite so firm (The Day After Tomorrow).
WHAT'S NEXT He plays the underachieving brother to Toby Maguire's soldier in the upcoming drama Brothers, co-starring Natalie Portman.
