Jake Gyllenhaal was here
Okay, not when the photo was taken. And not when the volcano was erupting. But Jake Gyllenhaal and Bear Grylls visited Eyjafjallajökull glacier and Fimmvörduháls mountain range over the weekend. And we have the photos.
Okay, that is totally not Gyll and Gryll. But that is the area they visited. The photo was taken in March. Here are the Gs on the flight to Reykjavik:
Looks like Jake was happy to pose and to sign for his fellow passengers.
To continue the traavelogue, some shots of the volcano and glacier. Luckily for production purposes, the volcano was not erupting at the time of Jake's visit. But it did make for some dramatic photos. I especially love the first Wizard of Ozian one:
More recent, more peaceful:
ETA: Here's Jake in Iceland, wearing some of his newly purchased 66°NORTH apparel:
The Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal spent the last weekend in Iceland. Mr. Gyllenhaal has starred in a number of movies, among the Brothers, where he was in one of the leading roles with Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman. Sigurjon Sighvatsson was the producer of the movie, and the actors got to know 66°NORTH outdoors clothes while shooting the film.
Jake was immediately impressed by the quality and looks of 66°NORTH, and since then, we have seen images of him wearing clothes from 66°NORTH in a number of magazines ...
Jake Gyllenhaal used the opportunity when he was in Iceland this weekend, and paid a visit to the 66°NORTH shop in Bankastraeti in Reykjavik, Iceland‘s capital. There, he purchased some clothes to wear during his weekend trip in Iceland. The photographer Bjorn Blondal took some pictures of Jake, wearing the Vikur men‘s jacket which the actor bought last Saturday.
And another photo of Jake, this time with Sigurjón Sighvatsson, one of the producers of Brothers. They apparently bumped into each other at the airport:
"I was coming home from Australia where we were sound mixing my latest film, The Killer Elite, and saw Jake in the airport," says Sigurjón Sighvatsson, film producer. He met Jake Gyllenhaal on Monday in the airport terminal when the actor was leaving the country after an adventurous weekend. ...
"It was a coincidence and it was really fun to meet him. He spoke very beautifully about land and nature up on the glacier where they landed. Jake had no idea that Iceland was so great and said he would come back as soon as possible on vacation. It had apparently also something to do with the girls
