Donnie Darko turns 13 this week. As you travel down your own wormhole of nostalgia, here are 13 pieces of appropriately quirky Darko trivia.
1. Director Richard Kelly mistakenly attributes the "cellar door" quote ("This famous linguist once said that of all the phrases in the English language, of all the endless combinations of words in all of history, that 'cellar door' is the most beautiful") to Edgar Allan Poe on the film's commentary track. 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.'"

While Jake Gyllenhaal has no children of his own just yet, he says being a doting uncle to his sister Maggie's two daughters, Ramona, 6 and Gloria Ray, born in April, has helped him to better "navigate the world of sibling stuff."
Watching the young girls discover their sibling relationships, Gyllenhaal, 31, says, shines a light on the competitiveness he experienced growing up with older sister Maggie, 34, who wed actor Peter Sarsgaard in 2009, the actor tells Anderson Cooper in an interview Friday.
Gyllenhaal, who is currently starring in the police drama End of Watch, confided to Anderson Cooper in a segment of his talk show, Anderson Live, that he and Maggie are hard on each other. But they're also supportive, he says, especially when it comes to talking about their work as actors.
He calls the nieces "extraordinary," and "the best thing that happened to my family probably ever," noting he loves his new role and is trying hard to be the best uncle possible.

Saturday was apparently errand day for the smiling Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard and, clinging close to daddy, daughter Gloria Ray, born April 19, as her parents were seen shopping for groceries in their Brooklyn neighborhood.
Not in the mix with them on this cloudy day: Gloria's older sister, Ramona, 5.
As for being a mom, Gyllenhaal has said, "There's no way to prepare for the challenges, the immense joys, the surprises, the disappointments and the shocks. Your heart just rips open. It's amazing."

With only two months to go until he turns 30, Jake Gyllenhaal has mixed emotions about the milestone.
"Look guys, I'm not 30 yet!" Gyllenhaal cracked at Saturday's New Yorker Festival in Manhattan. "Can you cut it with the 30 comments?"
Deflecting – humorously – any questions about leaving his 20s behind, the Love and Other Drugs star may feel wistful, but he also says he is comfortable with the person he has become.

"[During filming], you had everyone come in your trailer and you had vodka and I wasn't used to that, but I had an almost 2-year-old and I was up for it. And I remember in the end it dwindled down [to a few people] and you put your arm around Scott [Cooper, the director] and said, 'This is our leader, man, this is our leader.' And I wasn't sure, but I went with you because you said that and you said that with all your heart … And I know something about his heart, and he deserves every award that you guys could come up with to give him."
