Man Of My Literal Dreams Jake Gyllenhaal Walked Into NYC Traffic To Save A Dog

"He really was a hero."

It’s safe to say my love affair with Jake Gyllenhaal started at a young age. Over the course of my 27 years, Gyllenhaal has proven time and time again why he is quite literally the man of my dreams – but his most recent act of heroism truly takes the cake.

According to Page Six, Gyllenhaal walked into oncoming traffic in NYC last week to save a sweet Dalmatian from being hit by a car. 

“I noticed that it was Jake Gyllenhaal, and I saw him turn and look into the street – I thought he was trying to flag down a cab or something,” and eyewitness told Page Six. “It was like the dog was in shock of something.”

Apparently, Gyllenhaal left the woman he was walking with and stepped out into the street. He motioned the traffic to stop, secured the dog and attempted to calm it down. He led it back to the owner and then spent some time with her talking about “different types of leashes that might prevent the scary situation from happening again.”

“He really was a hero,” the eyewitness added.

It’s not the first time Gyllenhaal has made his love of dogs known. In a 2018 interview with W Magazine, he said, “I love dogs, I just love them. They are so playful. I think that they bring that out in us, if we allow it. I don’t think I’m that playful, generally. I need to be reminded of it. So, they remind me of that.”

It’s a sweet sentiment, but I’m calling BS on Jake thinking he’s not generally playful. The 38-year-old actor joined Instagram late last year and it’s been the best thing to happen to my newsfeed. 

Whether he’s poking fun at Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland, wearing his Mysterio mask IRL or hilariously burning cast members in interview and captions, Jake Gyllenhaal’s entire mood is playful. Which is number 1,568 on the list of reasons I love him.

Don’t ever change, Jake.

The New Trailer For Stephen Kings's 'The Outsider' Will Give You Full Body Chills

How can a killer be in two places at the same time?

Just when you thought It: Chapter Two gave you enough nightmares for a lifetime, Stephen King has returned with yet another book-to-screen adaptation, and this time it’s based on his 2018 novel The Outsider.

Yesterday, a trailer for The Outsider TV series dropped, and it’s safe to say it will give you full body chills. The series, which is set to premiere on HBO, follows the story of teacher and sports coach Terry Maitland (played by Jason Bateman) who is accused of murdering 11-year-old Frankie Peterson. 

Despite people witnessing Maitland killing the boy, he was also seen outside of town at the same time the murder occurred – begging the question: how can a killer be in two places at once?

Police detective Ralph Anderson (played by Ben Mendelsohn) is left to pick up the pieces of the puzzle along with private investigator Holly Gibney (played by Cynthia Erivo). 

Deadline reports that The Outsider is also set to star Bill Camp, Mare Winningham, Paddy Considine, Julianne Nicholson, Yul Vasquez, Jeremy Bobb, Marc Menchaca and more.

The Outsider comes hot off the back of last year’s Castle Rock, the psychological horror series based on King’s novel of the same name. Castle Rock starred Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgard as an enigmatic inmate at Shawshank State Penitentiary secretly held prisoner by Warden Dale Lacy for 27 years.

The series also comes just one month after the highly-anticipated release of It: Chapter Two, the second film to be based on King’s 1986 novel. As of October 2019, It: Chapter Two has grossed a worldwide total of $447.4M. It has also most likely given thousands of people around the world a lifelong fear of clowns. 

If The Outsider has any of the chilling moments of Castle Rock or It, we’re in for a great series and one or two sleepless nights. 

The Outsider will hit HBO on January 12th.

Robert Pattinson Is Happy To "Keep Masturbating" In Films, But Isn't So Keen On Death Threats

"At least I didn't get death threats this time!"

Robert Pattinson isn’t afraid of self-love, especially when it comes to his film characters.

During a recent interview with The New York Times, R-Patz spoke about his “ferocious masturbation scene” in the new film The Lighthouse, which came out this week. 

“My first shot was this ferocious masturbation scene,” he said. “It’s always nice to do something massive for your opening shot, and I went really massive on the first take.” Pattinson added that director Robert Eggers was “a little in shock afterward.”

It’s not the first time R-Patz has spoken about his love of ‘whomping the willow’ on set. Speaking to Variety, Pattinson said, “I keep masturbating. In the last three or four movies, I’ve got a masturbation scene.”

“I did it in High Life. I did it in Damsel. And The Devil All The Time. I only realised when I did it the fourth time.”

That’s a lot of fapping for the love of film.

In his New York Times interview, Pattinson spoke about mixed reactions to the recent announcement he’d be playing Bruce Wayne in the new Batman movie.

“Maybe I’m used to the abuse by now,” he said. “At least I didn’t get death threats this time – that’s a plus! It’s funny that people are so very angry about Twilight. I never particularly understood it.”

It sounds like R-Patz is quite happy to keep jerking off in the name of great cinema, if it means he can leave his fresh-faced Edward Cullen phase in the past. In a 2011 interview with Vanity Fair, the actor said he couldn’t understand the “crazy” behaviour of the Twilight fandom.

“I can’t really understand it even now,” he said. “It does have an angle which is attached to something quite primal in girls. I guess people want it to define them, like, ‘I’m a Twilight fan.’ That’s crazy to me. I think people really just like being part of a crowd. There’s something just tremendously exciting about hyping yourself up to that level.”

The future for Robert Pattinson is looking like it’ll include fewer crazy fans and more ‘intimate’ moments on-screen. Looking forward to it, Rob.
