Jake Gyllenhaal's first love is music

OHMYGOSSIP — Jake Gyllenhaal’s heart has always been in singing.
The 36-year-old star may have a highly successful acting career, but he admits he only pursued that because he had “wonderful luck” and his first love was always music, so he’s thrilled to be showing off his vocal talents in new Broadway revival ‘Sunday in the Park with George’.
Speaking after the opening night of the production on Thursday (23.02.17), he said: “It’s so nice to get to express myself through music, I always have in my family and I did growing up as a child throughout school.
“I had so much wonderful luck as an actor in films that how can you not move in that direction when the opportunities are there? But truly my love, my heart has always been in singing, particularly in the musical space.
“And so it’s really nice to do it finally and now people go like, ‘Oh, I guess he can do it, OK.”
Earlier this month, a video of the ‘Southpaw’ actor singing ‘Finishing the Hat’ down flights of stairs before ending up on stage went viral and putting together the clip with ‘Beasts of No Nation’ filmmaker Cary Fukunaga came about very quickly and was “totally organic”.
He told People magazine: “I called Cary and I was like, ‘Yo, wanna do a video maybe for this thing?’ And he was like, ‘I’m in, yeah.’
“It was totally organic. Literally a day and a half later we were in the theater and he said, ‘Oh it’d be really cool if you walked down the stairs.’ ”
The ‘Demolition’ star recently admitted he doesn’t understand the modern obsession with social media.
He said: “There is now an entire generation that has been raised without a sense of privacy. I often wonder what you have to bring to people if your own life is not your own. What wonderful things can you bring that you have learnt if everybody knows about all the stuff?
“We live in a different culture today, society wants to know everything and is desperate for information just, you know, to be able to discard it for something else.”
