Prisoners hit theaters in North America last month, but is just hitting the Land Down Under now which explains why Jake Gyllenhaal is on the cover of GQ Australia. Not that you need an excuse to ever highlight the 32-year-old actor. He could grace the publication’s cover for the entire year and you won’t hear me complaining.

Wearing just a white tee, Jakey sizzles for photographer Nino Munoz. When you’re this sexy, you don’t need much fanfare. The simple wardrobe and setting perfectly shows off his natural good looks. Check out more photos below, along with quotes about his Prisoners co-star Hugh Jackman, his sister Maggie and much more.

On Hugh Jackman

“I’d heard so many things about him, as we all have, that he’s such a good guy, such a nice bloke, but I had my own skepticism about that. But when I worked with him, the amazing thing about it, annoyingly so, is it’s just very true. He’s a good man. And as an actor, he’s so humble. I mean, given the position he’s in… people say success brings out who somebody really is, and he’s a deeply good man. He’s not performing it.”

On His Sister Maggie

“You watch your older sibling and you look up to them, and she was acting, and performing, and I loved that. Like, if I would do something that was funny, I could feel that response and I liked that response. By nature, children are performers in a way, and that was encouraged.”

On Favorite Things To Do Off Set

“I’m obsessed with food. I love eating in general, but if I’m somewhere on location, I tend to find one restaurant and weirdly will eat one or two things that I love. Then I’ll know I’m going there at the end of the day to eat that thing. It’s like a strange catharsis to me. I don’t know what it does but it kind of breaks the boundaries of something that’s different to what my character would eat. I grew up with foot at the center of life and with a mother who believed in growing fresh produce and that food is love. The process of watching something grow, blood, then cultivating and eating it, is an extraordinary process in patience. I love it.”
