Rita Ora Admires Jake Gyllenhaal’s ‘Southpaw’–Enhanced Body

By Florida Mae Acampado | 2 years ago

Let’s be honest, girls, when you see a physically good-looking guy, what’s the first thing that comes in your mind? For some, especially if you’re lucky to see him shirtless, it could be “Wow, love his abs!” Well, it seems Rita Ora has just joined in the club, thanks to Jake Gyllenhaal!

In an interview during the Weinstein Company’s pre-Oscar party on Saturday, Feb. 21, Rita Ora was asked about her co-star Jake Gyllenhaal in their upcoming movie ‘Southpaw’. Playing a boxer, dealing with his drug addiction, Gyllenhaal apparently worked it all out to firm up around 15 pounds of muscle for his role.


Regarding Gyllenhaal’s new body, all Ora said was, “I have to say it’s a pretty good body. I mean, Jake’s got a pretty good body—that’s all I’m saying on that before I get into trouble.”

Don’t be too embarrassed; after all, any girl would get tongue-tied if they see a guy with good pecs! But in any case, Ora is currently happy and in love with her boyfriend Richie Hilfiger, the son of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.

It seems the tides are in their relationship’s favor, because Daddy Hilfiger apparently likes Ora for his son. In an interview with HollywoodLife.com during his Fashion Week show, Hilfiger said that he admires Ora for being so talented and so sweet, and that he enjoyed seeing her and his son together. In relation to this, Hilfiger must have been quite ecstatic upon learning that Ora had his son for her escort in the pre-Oscars party and during the Oscars.

With regards to her recent movie endeavours, which included playing Mia Grey for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, Ora said, “I’m very honoured to be a part of a piece of work that is truly something really real, a real-life interpretation of somebody.”

‘Southpaw’, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, will be released on theaters on July 31, 2015.
