"I’ve chosen a lot of characters through many years to search through things, ideas, feelings. I think expression is life-saving. It breaks my heart that it’s not available to everyone. Ang Lee once said that we pretend in telling stories to get closer to the truth. It’s something that stuck with me and I think about often. I think that’s why we all love watching movies."
Not a big surprise that in the conversation between Jake Gyllenhaal and Lady Gaga that Variety conducted this week the latter dominated the conversation and so there wasn't much quote-wise for me to grab from the only reason I was reading the damn thing (i.e. Jake). But we did get the above bit of loveliness and it ain't nothing. Gaga tried at the end to toss me a bone with her Donnie Darko adoration but, having had to wade through her self-seriousness about killing children with Matt Bomer on American Horror Story for god's sake, twas too late far too little.
