Press conference day for Prince of Persia, with Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Mike Newell and Jerry Bruckheimer holding court at the Dorchester Hotel in London. Jake got suited up this morning and was spotted leaving Claridge's on his way to the presser:
Some pics of Jake and company at the press conference. According to the tweets, Jake was his usual charming and funny self:
There was so much adrenaline running for Jake when he did his stunts he didn't think about the heat
How did the heat effect Jake's performance? The heat helped with warming up his muscles for his physical scenes
Jake is hilarious!! What a fabulous sense of humour!
>>For those of you who don't know what that means - its means to make fun of. Gemma says that comes across in their characters on screen.
Gemma is saying how she and Jake 'took the piss' out of each other on set.<<
Sir Ben is talking about his relationship with Jake's character in the film but I can't tell you what he's saying as its a spoiler!
>>Jerry is saying he never looks back - always forward to his new films
Does Jerry ever punch the air and say "Yeah i made Top Gun"?<<
Gemma is saying she couldn't even make the Prince move in the game!
Mike has tried to play the game and admits he's terrible! He could never get him out of the revolving knives!
Mike Newell admits he didn't realise at first that #PrinceofPersia was a video game
Jake is being very funny at our press conference for #PrinceofPersia - i couldn't do his jokes justice by tweeting them.
Which event in the past would you like to erase? Jake says the day they had to shoot with ostriches as they were terrifying!
Jake mentions that Jordan originally described him game as a guy jumping around in pyjamas - Jake would like to try that on the next film!
Jake is mimicking Brit director Mike Newell's on set about his accent "Dear boy, that didn't sound right. Do it again"
Jake is joking that he has been studying parkour since he was a small child and always wanted to be a Prince!
Some tweets from various media types at the press conference:
Back from seeing Jake Gyllenhaal - even more gorgeous in the flesh
>>Spent too much time staring at Jake Gyllenhaal's eyes
I tried. I really tried. I spent the whole time having to repress myself from shouting inappropriate things... <<
