For a while there, Jake Gyllenhaal had an extra furry bear muff on his face and it made him look like a creepy Russian Literature professor at a liberal arts college in Northern California who’d always ask his students if they wanted to take a drive in his 1974 mustard yellow Datsun B210 to his cabin deep in the woods to look at his collection of taxidermy squirrels dressed up as civil war heroes. Not since Taylor Swift has a beard done absolutely nothing for Jakey. But Jakey finally took a machete to that sleeping wombat on his face. And here’s a shaven Jake in NYC the other day biting onto an iPod headphones cord (it kind of looks like Barbie’s extra long tampon) and now you know what he’ll look like if he ever bit on your thong.
Rejoice! Jakey’s beard is gone! But he’s still got that other beard lying around somewhere.
