A CA­REER THAT EM­BRACES CHANGE

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - 8/FILM -

The son of di­rec­tor Stephen Gyl­len­haal and screen­writer Naomi Foner, it’s easy to as­sume Gyl­len­haal’s cin­e­matic fu­ture was writ­ten in the stars. He made his screen de­but when he was just 11, as Billy Crys­tal’s son in City Slick­ers. But for him, it’s all about con­stant change. “My de­sire is to be able to see that I’m con­stantly chang­ing and in­ter­ested in dif­fer­ent things,” says Gyl­len­haal, who was nom­i­nated for an Acad­emy Award for role in the land­mark 2005 movie Broke­back Moun­tain. “The choices of project I want to be in­volved in, that I have the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved in, change along with it.”
