Jake Gyllenhaal: 'I want to be a good dad'

Playing a single father in new boxing movie Southpaw has given the film's star Jake Gyllenhaal daddy dreams.

The Brokeback Mountain star, whose ex-girlfriends have included Taylor Swift and Kirsten Dunst, admits he really enjoyed working with his movie daughter Oona Laurence, and the experience made him think about starting a family of his own.


He explains, "I am not a father yet, but it is definitely a dream of mine, should I be lucky to have that to happen (sic). I have nieces who I love deeply and I have children in my life I love deeply, but when I met Oona, I just fell for her. Your heart opens up to her.


"Children are everything, you know? I'd do anything for any child."
