Jake Gyllenhaal Goes To Venice And Walks Past Someone Playing One Of His Characters

Being an actor must be surreal at times. Take this as an example: Spider-Man star Jake Gyllenhaal visited Venice and saw someone dressed up as one of his characters.

The 40-year-old actor was in the Italian city when he bumped into someone dressed head to toe as his villain character, Mysterio, from Spider-Man: Far From Home


Posting some pictures on to his Instagram account, the Hollywood star wrote: "Ran into an old friend in Venezia."

Hilariously, some of his a-list pals responded with Josh Gad writing simply: "Take. Him. Out."

Comic book creator, Rob Liefeld, added: "You can totally take that guy!"

Other questioned whether it's confirmation that Mysterio will appear in Spider-Man No Way Home. One wrote: "WE NEED MYSTERIO IN SPIDER-MAN NO WAY HOMEEE."

While someone else said: "Mysterio confirmed to be back? OMG yes," followed by the fire emoji.

Another suggested that the picture might be old, writing: "Is it old though? Or are you trying to mess with us because Mysterio is back in No Way Home?"

Someone else pointed out that in one of the pictures, people walking around are wearing masks so it can't be too old (because, y'know. Covid).

Fans are clearly excited at the prospect, especially considering how much fans loved him playing the role.

Others just seemed more interested on whether he'd had a wash after the actor came out and revealed that he's finding bathing to be 'less necessary'.

Erm... come again?

Jake Gyllenhaal.

Gyllenhaal features in Prada's new ad campaign for fragrance Luna Rossa Ocean, and sat down with Vanity Fair recently to talk about 'all things aquatic', in the theme of the new product.

But when he was asked if there was anything 'revelatory' about his shower ritual, he replied: "I always am baffled that loofahs come from nature. They feel like they've been made in a factory but, in fact, it's just not true. Since I was young, it's amazed me.

"More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times. I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that.

"But I do also think that there's a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves."
