From GQ UK: When Jake Gyllenhaal met Tom Ford
Jake Gyllenhaal is not just an Oscar-nominated actor with a legendary work ethic and a drop-dead smile. He is also a Jewish boy from LA, a Swedish nobleman, godson of Paul Newman, has studied Buddhism at Columbia with Robert Thurman, and is known for transforming himself physically and emotionally for his roles. Tom Ford is not just a fashion designer and film director, he is а 21st-century Renaissance man. After revolutionising fashion, he moved effortlessly into film with unprecedented success: his first film, A Single Man, was nominated for a raft of awards including the Best Actor Oscar nomination for lead Colin Firth. Now the two have teamed up for Mr Ford's sophomore feature, Nocturnal Animals, with Jake Gyllenhaal taking the dual role of Edward Sheffield, a writer, and Tony Hastings, the main character from Edward's book who suffers an unfortunate fate with his family while going on their summer holidays. Here, in an exclusive transatlantic telephone conversation, Mr Ford interviews Mr Gyllenhaal about the art of making movies, writing screenplays and being vulnerable.
Finally, the trailer!

"Venice is a total reflection of what we always hope movies could do. It just creates something in a sort of impossible place. This tremendous beauty that looks almost impossible to create. I'm just in awe everytime I arrive here of what has been done to create this extraordinary place." - Jake Gyllenhaal #venice #Venezia73 #venicefilmfestival #filmfestival #nocturnalanimals #tomford #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhite #monochromatic #monochrome #quote #instatravel #latergram #ig_venice #igersvenice #instavenice #grandcanal #bw #bwphotography #bwphoto
