Jake Gyllenhaal on the cover of the latest issue of Man of the World magazine

On his career trajectory: 

“It’s taken me a long time in my career to realize that you can’t be good at everything. You sometimes have to give something up. There are limits. I do care about the stories people want to tell. But then I want to get back to my honest self for the directors I work with.”

On being comfortable with certain directors: 

“Acting is a very strange job, as well as an amazing one, because it requires great trust. Your relationship with a director is very sacred, a sensitive space. I just can’t do it with everyone. And that’s what I have discovered about myself. It’s all about a level of commitment—how far will you go for a director you believe in? How far will you go for a story you believe in? I’ve always worked as hard as I can on everything I’ve done. But now I feel like I’m listening to myself and realizing that we have a finite amount of time, and how you spend it is really important.”

On roles he loves: 


“Many of the movies I’ve loved the most have had similar processes about rules being broken and bent. I love that.”
