Bear Grylls and Jake Gyllenhaal Strip Down in Freezing Temperatures on 'Man vs. Wild' (VIDEO)

You first heard about it a few weeks ago, but now you finally get to see Jake Gyllenhaal take his shirt off on 'Man vs. Wild' (Mon., 9PM ET on Discovery). Well, there was more to it than that.

He and Bear Grylls both shed their shirts in sub-freezing temperatures to keep them as dry as possible while they crossed a river. It's a far cry from a shirtless Gyllenhaal in the deserts of 'Prince of Persia.'

"I joined up for this, right?" Gyllenhaal lamented as he stripped. They made the crossing fairly quickly, making us cold just from watching them in the freezing water with the cameraman trying to keep the lens free of snow and ice.

8 Celebs We'd Love to See on 'Man vs. Wild'

'Men vs Wild with Jake Gyllenhaal'Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is going on the adventure of a lifetime tonight: He'll be trekking through the wilds of Iceland for two days with Bear Grylls on a very special episode of 'Man vs. Wild.'

'Men vs. Wild with Jake Gyllenhaal' (Mon., July 11, 9PM ET on Discovery) finds the 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'Love and Other Drugs' star teaming with Grylls for a snowy, icy, carcass-filled trip.

Following in the footsteps of funnyman Will Ferrell, who ventured to Northern Sweden with the show a couple years back, Gyllenhaal will show off his tough-guy skills, without the help of any stuntmen or body doubles like in the movies.

We can't wait to see these two get rugged together, but it got us thinking -- who should be next? Last year, Gryllls told us he wanted Cameron Diaz to tag along, and it looks like that's happening. (Although Ben Stiller was set to go, too -- whatever happened with that?)

Here, eight more celebrities we'd love to see roughing it on 'Man vs. Wild.'

Michelle Monaghan's Likes Crude Jokes, Really Knows How to Kiss (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 1st 2011 12:50PM
Michelle Monaghan on 'Good Morning America'You learned two things about Michelle Monaghan if you watched 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) today: 1) She has a crude sense of humor, and 2) she is a very confident kisser. Monaghan's 'Source Code' co-star Jake Gyllenhaal outed her for the sense of humor, and 'GMA' host Cynthia McFadden asked her about a laundry list of top leading men with whom she has shared on-screen kisses. She wasn't terribly specific on either point.

Gyllenhaal had been on an earlier show, and said of Monaghan that she has "a ridiculously crude sense of humor," a quality he said they share.

"I have a little blue sense of humor, definitely," Monaghan responded, without citing any specific incident. "We both did. So, yeah, we were able to provide a bit of comic relief for each other."

Gyllenhaal and Monaghan did have to smooch for the cameras, and McFadden mentioned that Monaghan has had to do the same with Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr. and Patrick Dempsey. McFadden asked who was best, but Monaghan turned the question around, saying, "I'd like to think that I've taught them a thing or two."

Robin Roberts Tries to Mimic 'Source Code' Introducing Jake Gyllenhaal, Fails, on 'GMA' (VIDEO)

Jake Gyllenhaal on 'Good Morning America'Jake Gyllenhaal plays a time traveler in the new movie 'Source Code,' something Robin Roberts tried to have a little fun with on today's 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Roberts pretended to flub Gyllenhaal's intro and then rewind time the way you would rewind an old VHS tape and do it again. Even she wasn't convinced by her performance.

"Oh, if life were really like that, I could just hit the old rewind button like that," Roberts said. "And the Oscar does not go to me."

Gyllenhaal was kind. "I liked your style," he said. "We almost did that sort of rewind the same way, but we felt it was a little old school."

'Source Code' is in theaters tomorrow. Hopefully, it is a little more technically sophisticated than this interview.

Jake Gyllenhaal on 'The Daily Show'At the end of Jake Gyllenhaal's interview on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy central) Jon Stewart asked him, "Are we going to hang out and play basketball at some point soon?"

"No we're not because you never called me back," Gyllenhaal responded, and then reminded Stewart that the last time he was on the show Stewart made the same basketball offer, but apparently didn't follow through.

"I was actually on the Conan O'Brien show the other day and I likened him to the Abraham Lincoln of talk show hosts," Gyllenhaal continued. "You, I liken to the Spud Webb of talk show hosts. So, yes, I would love actually to play basketball with you."

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal Discuss the Complexities of Filming Nude Scenes (VIDEO)

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal on 'Today'If you have a talk show and haven't yet asked Jake Gyllenhaal and/or Anne Hathaway about the nude scenes in their new film, 'Love & Other Drugs,' then you are falling way behind. Meredith Vieira took her turn this morning on 'Today' (Weekdays, 7AM on NBC) and asked both stars about a scene in the trailer where Hathaway enters Gyllenhaal's apartment and drops her coat, revealing that she's naked to both Gyllenhaal and his surprised roommate.

Hathaway proceeded to tell a funny story about a surprise that happened while filming that scene on set. Hathaway entered the room, dropped her coat, and only then realized they were just rehearsing. "All of a sudden I notice that Jake is in his pants, Josh isn't wearing his costume, and I realize, we're rehearsing."

Gyllenhaal and Hathaway said they have both made their peace with occasional on-screen nudity being a part of their jobs. Gyllenhaal mentioned that the pair had already filmed a love scene together in 'Brokeback Mountain,' which eased the awkwardness this time around.

We can also report, with some degree of certainty, that everyone in the movie was probably at least partially naked when getting dressed in their trailers before the shoot.

Jake Gyllenhaal discusses 'Love & Other Drugs' on 'Regis and Kelly'Jake Gyllenhaal has done a lot of explaining about the amount of nudity in his new film with Anne Hathaway, 'Love & Other Drugs.' He and Hathaway were even nude on a recent Entertainment Weekly cover.

It's all been a lot for Regis Philbin to handle, who joked with Gyllenhaal about it on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' (Weekdays, Syndicated). "Isn't it overdone? Do you two have to be nude?"

"I know," Gyllenhaal said sarcastically. "Can you believe Anne Hathaway gets naked in this movie over and over and over again? Isn't that horrible?"

Most probably, this will be the interview that puts 'Love & Other Drugs' over the top at the box office when it opens next week.

Jake Gyllenhaal Explains All His 'Love and Other Drugs' Nudity to Letterman (VIDEO)

Jake Gyllenhaal Talks Nudity on 'Late Show' David Letterman enjoyed Jake Gyllenhaal's new movie, 'Love and Other Drugs,' but found it quite shocking too. There's a lot of nudity. And it's a kind of nudity the host didn't expect, he told Gyllenhaal on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

He stuttered as he tried to explain, "You get excited when you first, you see [Anne Hathaway] -- uh, she starts, she is undressed ... But what you don't think of is that we're going to see you [naked]. You know, that didn't occur to me."

Gyllenhaal responded sarcastically, "Usually, when people have sex -- whatever, intercourse -- both people have to take their clothes off, David." Letterman said, "I know, but for some reason I didn't see that coming." The actor told the audience that "65 percent of the movie we don't have our clothes on -- or according to you, only she doesn't have her clothes on."

Fallon, Gyllenhaal Sing 'Hedgehog Doing Karate' SongWe've seen a lot of Jake Gyllenhaal the last couple weeks, thanks to oodles of press for 'Prince of Persia.' At least Jimmy Fallon was good enough to employ him in a different way -- no standard couch confab -- on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

The actor joined Fallon to perform 'Hedgehog Doing Karate: The American Idol Song,' a little ditty Fallon wrote about the 'Idol' finale and "things that don't exist."

The host started things off, then was joined in song (and dance) by Gyllenhaal, wearing a yellow jumpsuit. The duo carried their moves into the studio audience, singing very close to one lucky (but uncomfortable) young woman.

Jake Gyllenhaal Doesn't Smile in RussiaThe many premieres and press junkets for 'Prince of Persia' have taken Jake Gyllenhaal around the world, and taught him about cultural norms in the process.

As he explained on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), he took advice from a Russian etiquette book a little too seriously -- leading to some disastrous interviews.

"On our way to Russia, they gave us an etiquette book," said Gyllenhaal. "It says, 'Don't laugh or smile, or they'll think you're stupid or crazy.' I swear to God that's what it says ... And so I started to get really nervous..."
