Mario Batali Has a Serious Bro Crush on Jake Gyllenhaal


Did you know that today is National Spaghetti Day? Neither did my grandmother, and she’s been making spaghetti since Giuseppe Garibaldi reunified Italy and promised spaghetti and meatballs for everyone. To celebrate National Spaghetti Day, Mario Batali had actor and amateur cook Jake Gyllenhaal on ABC’s The Chew to cook some spaghetti and regale the audience with tales of ribaldry from the cinematheque. It was all very delightful. Mario then asked Jake, bro to bro, what he cooks when he’s looking for bounteous compliments from his dinner guests. And, you guys, Jake said, “I think it all depends on what’s fresh,” which turns out to be best phrase for getting into Mario Batali’s chef pants because he immediately grasped Jake Gyllenhaal’s sinewy body and asked, “How could you love this dude any more?”
