13 Appropriately Weird Facts for Donnie Darko's 13th Anniversary

Donnie Darko turns 13 this week. As you travel down your own wormhole of nostalgia, here are 13 pieces of appropriately quirky Darko trivia.

The quote actually belongs to J.R.R. Tolkien (from his 1955 essay "English and Welsh"), and reads, "Most English-speaking people ... will admit that cellar door is 'beautiful', especially if dissociated from its sense (and from its spelling). More beautiful than, say, 'sky,' and far more beautiful 'than beautiful.'"

Jake Gyllenhaal was sent to the emergency room after punching a mirror on the Los Angeles set of his new film Nightcrawler Wednesday morning.

"Jake flipped out," a Nightcrawler source tells PEOPLE. "His character was looking into a mirror during the scene and punched the mirror in anger and broke it, cutting himself so bad he had to be taken to a hospital."

And while a source close to Gyllenhaal, 32, confirms the actor received stitches in the emergency room, the source says the reason for the incident was nothing more than a moment in character during an intense scene after an 18-hour day.

While he may look different, his approach hasn't changed as he prepares for Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal said.

The affectionate duo was spotted at the Cold Process Coffee and Tea pop-up stand at New York's Pier 57 last Sunday around 3 p.m. As they ordered refreshments, the couple couldn't resist sneaking in a few sweet smacks on the lips.
