Jake Gyllenhaal Shaves His Head BALD For A New Film


When last we saw Jake Gyllenhaal out and about, he was rockin’ a full head of hair at the Hollywood premiere of his film Source Code. Today we learn that Jake has since shaved his head — completely — for a new movie role. The completely bald Jake and his co-star Michael Peña were spotted on a promotional photoshoot this weekend for their new film End of Watch. Get an eyeful of Jake’s new hair’do below.

For his role in Princes Of Persia, he grew his hair out into a long flowing mane. But now Jake Gyllenhaal has gone to the opposite extreme for his new acting gig by shaving his hair down to his scalp. The 30-year-old sported the bald look while on the set of a promotional shoot for his new film End Of Watch in Downtown Los Angeles yesterday. Jake plays one of two police officers in the drama which is centred around their long term friendship and working relationship. During the shoot, which also featured Jake’s co-star Michael Pena, the two men were seen posing against the Downtown LA backdrop as well as shooting guns and getting in and out of a police car. Both men wore the traditional LAPD dark blue uniform during the action packed afternoon shoot. The film is being written and directed by David Ayres, the man who wrote the Denzel Washington smash hit Training Day.

OY! I am SO not in love with this look. I prefer my Jakey poo hairy … BUT, I guess he does look all tough and stuff for this new role. I’m sure it’ll take some getting used to but I’m sure I’ll find an affinity for Jake’s shaved head. To be honest, I can’t really see Jake in a seriously serious role so … we’ll have to see how this film turns out. What do y’all think of Jake’s new ‘do? Do you like it? Does it turn you on?

    I didn’t know if I’d like Jake with no hair.
    Nope…still sexy as all hell.

  • Brady

    Trent, have u ever seen The Good Girl with Jake and Jennifer Aniaton that was the best serious role hes done IMO even more than Brokeback Mountain.

  • irisgirl

    Oh, no, this is even worse than the Jarhead look! Hate. It.

    And Brady is partially right—-The Good Girl had awesome performances from both Jakey and Jen Aniston. But IMHO, Brokeback Mountain was his finest serious role. And Bubble Boy was his best comedic role!
