Love at First Sight: Jake Gyllenhaal

Ah, Jakey G.  Those puppy dog eyes and that sexy, yet shy, smile.  You just know he would have been the hot jock in high school who was nice to the gay boys and wrote poetry about being “misunderstood.”  Nowhere are those qualities more evident than in Lovely and Amazing (2001), Nicole Holofcener’s drama about a family of body- and youth- obsessed women.  Playing Catherine Keener’s  photo lab boss (and eventual jailbait boyfriend), Jake is a sweeter, goofier version of the character he played in The Good Girl.  Totally crush-worthy, and a main reason I saw this movie three times in one week at  the theatre .  If you haven’t seen it, add this to your Netflix queue today!
