Jake Gyllenhaal is underappreciated.

This man is such an important human being. Watch interviews and observe how he interacts with the interviewer, he looks right into their eyes and actually ponders the questions he is asked. Jake chooses very diverse roles in films and gives a phenomenal performance each time, because he embraces that character and dedicates so much time to create an accurate portrayal. From being a bubble boy, to a troubled teen, to a sociopath, to a gay cowboy, to a widowed father. Jake Gyllenhaal never gives a disappointing performance. Watch how charming, respectful, witty, and polite he is. Watch how accepting he is, and how supportive he is. Look at the way his blue eyes light up when he talks about his family and how highly he speaks of each member, never once saying anything negative. Look at how he respectfully shuts interviewers down when they bring up sex scenes, and how he always comments on a woman’s personality before her body. Especially look at how he doesn’t act like he can get any girl he wants. Listen to his beautiful, genuine laugh. Think about how he always tries to be the best at everything he does. This is a man that would rather work alongside Robert Downey Jr. than win an award because gaining knowledge means he is successful, not recieving awards. This actor is slipping under everybody’s radar and I’m finding it quite beautiful because I get to embrace his excellence while everyone else is gawking over Channing Tatum’s body.

(BMC) Collections headcanons

-Jake is a freak about collections
-He has like twenty of them
-In rough chronological order from when he started collecting them, examples include:
-A collection of snowglobes
-A collection of seashells
-A collection of glass dragons
-A collection of stuffed marine creatures
-(His favorite is a blue octopus named Keto)
-A collection of paperclips
-A collection of coins dating back to the ‘80s
-And many more
-His prize collection are the coins
-He keeps them all in a special envelope and takes them out once a week for cleaning
-He’s really protective over them
-When he first got together with Chloe, she thought all these collections were dumb
- ‘You’re just crowding the house with junk’
-Jake agreed, but couldn’t help and feel a little crushed
-He’d been planning to give her a coin to cement their relationship
-Oh well….
-His favorite collection is a book of stamps his grandpa gave him when he was twelve
-That collection means the goddamn world to him
-It has stamps from all around the world, from all these different time periods
-Jake is Old-Fashioned™ and hates how emails are replacing letters
-He also sends emails, sure, but still
-Letters have stamps
-Stamps are amazing
-Jake hero-worships that stamp book as the last present his grandfather gave him before he died
-Until it’s lost in the fire
-A few weeks later, Jake goes and visits Rich in the hospital
-Rich has changed
-A lot
-He has a lisp, and gets much more flustered than he normally would when Jake sits next to him
-Jake acts like he doesn’t notice
-He pulls out some scraps of burnt paper and shows them to Rich
- ‘This is my stampbook’
-Rich is confused (and a little afraid)
-He’s worried that Jake is here to beat his already beat ass up for burning down his house
-And frankly, he doesn’t blame him
-Then Jake explains about the stampbook and Rich feels even worse
-He goes to apologize but Jake interrupts him
- 'No man, it wasn’t your fault. I didn’t come here to guilt-trip you’
'Then why’d you come?’
-Jake hands him a small wrapped circle
- 'To give you this. Hope you feel better, Rich’
-Rich opens the wrapping with a lot of difficulty
-He half expects to find a mini bomb or something
-Instead, he finds a coin
