Jake Gyllenhaal not Prince charming

Jake Gyllenhaal hoped more women would flirt with him after he piled on the muscle for ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’. The 29-year-old actor got in incredible shape for his role as Prince Dastan in the action-adventure movie but his physical improvements have been missed by members of the opposite sex.

Jake – who previously dated Reese Witherspoon – said: “More women flirted with me when I shaved my head as a marine in ‘Jarhead’ then when I got big muscles and had long hair in ‘Prince of Persia…’.” Although he hasn’t experience a boost in his love life, the Hollywood heartthrob is thrilled with the movie – which is based on the video game of the same name.

Jake – who stars alongside Gemma Arterton in the film – added to The Independent newspaper: “I am really proud of ‘Prince of Persia…’ and think it’s really great. And I really, honestly, never say s**t like that. But I am legitimately excited about the movie and to me that does bring a sense of ease.”
