Jake Gyllenhaal presented a newly-engaged and pregnant Natalie Portman with the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival this past weekend.
The 30-year-old actor, who briefly dated Portman back in 2006, both showered the star and did a bit of roasting while presenting the award. “Natalie is the Audrey Hepburn of our generation,” he said. “She’s elegant, graceful, has amazing eyebrows…is talented, really short, funny, smart, dedicated, incredibly kind.”
“She’s a vegan, which makes it really frustrating when you’re picking a place to eat,” he quipped. “She’s also recently announced that she’s going to be a mom, and her child will probably need therapy after seeing Black Swan.”
During interviews for their last movie together “Brothers”, Portman poked a bit of fun at Gyllenhaal saying, “He plays guitar and has a great voice. Kids and dogs love him. He loves his mom and sister and girlfriend. He’s perfect. Too bad he’s ugly.”
Sounds like true friendship.
