Today's Evil Beet Gossip
Prince Of Persia

Jake Gyllenhaal is Fearful of Long-Legged, Beak-Faced Predators

So I guess ever dating Gwyneth Paltrow is totally out of the question.

Jake dishes on his upcoming movie, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and the film’s use of ostriches to enhance the film’s ambiance. Gyllenhaal states:

“They would say, ‘Don’t make any noise around the ostriches. They’ll tear out your eyes and rip out your heart.’ So, I was naturally terrified … They look like they’re innocent, but they’re really not.”

Prince of Persia is based on the video game of the same name and follows a prince (Gyllenhaal) on his quest to prevent worldwide doom in a scantily-clad kind of way, similar to almost every other fantasy/action movie. On the whole, it sounds alright, but I think it’s going to be one of those movies I happen to see accidentally, rather than making the conscious effort to get in my car, drive seven miles to the nearest theater and pay ten bucks to see a movie that features a shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal … ’cause it’s Gyllenhaal shirtless or not.

The moral of the story? Keep the hell away from ostriches (and Gwyneth Paltrow) at all costs.
