Is it a coincidence that Jake Gyllenhaal’s career has been near meteoric since dating Alyssa Miller? I’d say not considering that that relationship gave him the Midas Touch of DEREK JETER’S HERPES.
Gyllenhaal earns a spot on this list for the sheer fact that he’s developed into one of the few actors who’s considerable commercial success matches his actual talent.
If you haven’t seen him in Prisoners I suggest you stop reading this and go watch it. If you still have time after that you should watch Bubble Boy too because it’s just adorable.
So far in his relatively young career his greatest accomplishment was his performance in Brokeback Mountain . He’s also the brother of a sad Bassett Hound named Maggie.
