I enjoy looking at Jake Gyllenhaal‘s face. He has a strong jaw, and droopy puppy eyes that make me want to cook my grandmother’s spaghetti for him. That being said, apparently he beat me to the punch.

The Love and Other Drugs actor, who (conveniently) just split with singer Taylor Swift, revealed in a recent interview that he collects cook books, makes a point to eat healthy, and enjoys throwing together a romantic meal.


“I have a massive section in my library at home of beautiful old cook books,” Gyllenhaal said. “I really have a strange obsession with them.”

But here’s the kicker— dude prefers to go to the farmers market, buy organic and local ingredients, and create his own healthy and eco-friendly meal on a whim. How cool!

The 30-year-old said, “If I’m making a romantic dinner, I like to go to a farmers’ market first, buy things fresh and come up with my own dish based on whatever I’ve bought.”

Hello, I love romantic dinners! Seriously though, it gets even better.

“I grow my own vegetables at home because I love fresh food,” he added. “I don’t follow a special diet but I try and eat well, so I grow my own vegetables.”

So, try to imagine going over to a guy’s house for dinner, and watching him pluck veggies out of his backyard before cooking them. How awesome would that be?

Jake, you’ve got the puppy eyes and apparently are a farmer — I dig it.

Anyone catch my pun there (dig the land and digging him)?!?
