It was all laughs between Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman at the Palm Springs International Film Festival this past weekend.
Gyllenhaal presented Portman with the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the festival, but had a few words to say about his newly engaged — and pregnant — ex-girlfriend before giving her the award.
“Natalie is the Audrey Hepburn of our generation,” the actor told the crowd. “She is elegant, graceful, has amazing eyebrows … is talented, really short, funny, smart, dedicated, incredibly kind.”
Gyllenhaal, who had everyone, including Portman’s fiance Benjamin Millepied, laughing along, continued to roast his close friend.
“She’s a vegan, which makes it really frustrating when you’re picking a place to eat,” he said, before adding, “She’s also recently announced that she’s going to be a mom, and her child will probably need therapy after seeing ‘Black Swan.’”
Gyllenhaal and Portman briefly dated in 2006. She recently announced her engagement and pregnancy with Millepied, her ‘Black Swan’ choreographer and dance partner.
Everybody has dated Jake.
