You may have heard that Jake Gyllenhaal was on the premiere episode of Man vs. Wild this week. I spent most of the show alternately urging him not to get hurt, and warning the elements of Iceland not to wreck his pretty face.
Not only did he bravely hike through an epic snowstorm in white-out conditions and over a dangerous hidden bed of lava, but he ate a worm, slept in a snow cave, waded across a sub-freezing river (shirtless! Yay Discovery Channel!) overcame his fear of heights to shimmy over a LONG rope high above a DEEP canyon, gutted and BEHEADED a (dead) sheep (!!!!), but he did it all with a sense of humor and enthusiasm that absolutely added to his already sky high charm factor.
Did I mention that he snuck in a pack of hot chocolate mix for the snow cave sleepover? I’m telling you – if you’re stuck in the wilderness somewhere with only one Hollywood Pretty Boy to help you survive – Go Gyllenhaal. He’ll wade across a frozen river to gut an animal for you and bring back chocolate. I’d like to see Robert Pattinson do that!
