The 26-year-old actor is good with kids and in the kitchen.

Gyllenhaal's a devoted uncle to sister Maggie's daughter Ramona. "She's amazing—I revel in her growth, it's an amazing process to watch," says the actor. Still, he's not exactly psyched about diaper duty, telling Maclean's: "I wanted to see what it was like ... [but] I started gagging and handed her back."

"I really like making breakfast because it's simple. And I do like cooking steak. Cooking a great steak is an art—people don't appreciate what that really entails."
