Stories and smiles
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Jake Gyllenhaal has the "most innocent" male celebrity smile. It's so innocent, those dentists apparently don't realize it's actually sly and sexy and spectacular. I like Clive Owen and all, but he has nothing on this:
And that's just in black and white.
It's a shame Jake never smiles anymore :)
Saw that Jordan Mechner, creator of Prince of Persia and screenwriter for the film, has a blog. He wrote a little about naming the prince:
As it turns out, the word dastan has shadings I wasn’t aware of — shadings that make it an even more appropriate name for the prince than I realized.
First, several people (including Jake Gyllenhaal the first day we met) have pointed out to me that Dastan is also a Persian word meaning ”story.” And so it is, although the vowel is pronounced differently. According to wikipedia, a Dastan is a type of Central Asian oral history “centered on one individual who protects his tribe or his people from an outside invader/enemy.” Hey, just like every video game.
He has a few other entries of note with regard to PoP. It will be interesting to see what else he shares about his experience.
What are some of your favorite Jake smiles?
