The actor told MTV News: ”I’ve had this privilege of being able to act since I was very young. I had this long career. I’m at the age where I think most of my contemporaries are beginning their career. I think of it in the same way. I think of it as a beginning too, understanding who you are as a man, understanding who you are as an artist or whatever you do in your life.”

jakeGyllenhaal says he is bolder now when it comes to dealing with tougher roles. ”At a certain time in your life you start to say, ‘Yeah, that moves me. I’m into that.’ You trust your instinct. I think all of those instincts become honed. There are a lot of things I’m not afraid of anymore. There are a lot of things that I continue to be afraid of and I’m trying to look at,” he added.
