My Life Has Been Amazing Ever Since Jake Gyllenhaal Got Instagram
Late last year Jake Gyllenhaal quietly activated his Instagram account and now I see everything in technicolour.
I have an interesting and confusing attitude towards celebrities on social media. Whilst I appreciate being closer to knowing them and what they're getting up to in their little lives, I'm also acutely aware that none of it is real and they are lying to me. I didn't say it was a healthy attitude, I'm just speaking honestly.
But then @jakegyllenhaal came along with his verified blue tick and everything...just made sense.
Is he using it as a promotional marketing tool for his work? Yes! Is he doing it in a classy, comical and gentle way? Also yes!
Is he using his account to rib his famous friends with some good old fashioned trolling? Yes!
Is he producing his own memes and taking to it like a duck to water? Ummm YES!
I could go on and on and on and quite frankly I will.
His social media activity affirms what we've long suspected: Jake Gyllenhaal is a god amongst men. He's a wonderful actor and he is also not letting the trappings of Hollywood cloud his better judgement. It really does appear as if there is no ego there at all.
While there have been plenty of celebs who decided to stay off social media, we're looking at you Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone, I appreciate that Jake took his time before jumping on Instagram. No hasty decisions here....a conscious and adult approach. I stan, we should all stan, do you stan?
It probably doesn't need to be mentioned, but in an age where Instagram can bring on feelings of despair, self-loathing, etc, I find that Jake Gyllenhaal's account soothes my soul in ways that I never thought it would/could. The sun shines brighter, food tastes better and life is just sweeter. Go figure!
So with that, please protect JG at all costs and his Instagram account should be cited as a world heritage listed location. Who do I speak to about making that happen?
Will I get blocked for writing this devoutly thirsty opinion piece? I truly hope not because without @jakegyllenhaal I cease to exist.
