Jake Gyllenhaal wants to write scripts
Jake Gyllenhaal wants to write his own films.
The 'Love & Other Drugs' star is concerned his acting career won't always be successful but already has a back-up plan prepared for when he gets older.
He said: "You're always wondering how long this will last. It's a piece of being an actor. There's always someone more talented or younger than you.
"But I also like to write. In years to come, I think that will expand. I won't just be scrapping for the next job. Maybe I'll create something for myself."
Perhaps Jake could consider penning his own comedy after admitting he accepted the role as a Viagra salesman who falls in love with a Parkinson's disease sufferer - played by Anne Hathaway - in 'Love and Other Drugs' because he was so tired of a lack of films that combined laughter and emotion.
He told Britain's Glamour magazine: "I'm tired of comedies that make you laugh but you don't buy the emotional side.
"The film has a sense of comedy, but also a sense of something deeper, about the difficulties of being alive."
