Whether he's hitting the surf in Malibu or hitting a fly ball at the batting cages, Gyllenhaal is a natural-born athlete. "Exercise is a natural high," he says. He also loves to hit the road. "I'm a big bike rider. I've been inspired by Lance Armstrong."

Though they officially broke up last year, Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst remain on friendly terms: The pair, who once exchanged promise rings and shared a $1.7 million L.A. home, have often been spotted hanging together. And when he's with her, Gyllenhaal caters to his girl (left, at a Hollywood hotel).


Gyllenhaal's look is classic – a blazer paired with jeans; a suit at the Hollywood premiere of Jarhead – with a rumpled edge, namely those devil-may-care tousled locks. However, he'd beg to differ: "I have the most horrible haircuts in my movies," he says.


"I like to think of myself as his Mrs. Robinson," Jennifer Aniston, Gyllenhaal's costar in 2002's The Good Girl, said when handing out his breakthrough-acting honor at 2005's Hollywood Film Festival (left). Meanwhile, Susan Sarandon, his costar in '02's Moonlight Mile, says he has "dreamy eyes," and his love interest in that film, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, calls him "delicious."


Gyllenhaal, 25, jokes that developing his ripped physique – for the Marine movie Jarhead – took little more than sleeping. "The day after I was cast, something happened, and I was huge," the actor says. But seriously: It's really thanks to a grueling regimen that included running and swimming. "Then we went to boot camp," he says.


Gyllenhaal didn't worry about his heartthrob image when he accepted the role of a cowboy who falls in love with Heath Ledger's character (left) in Brokeback Mountain. "Anybody would be stupid to pass up a role in which you're going to be guided by the words of a great story," he told Premiere.

Katherine McPhee (plastic girl...accordong to Denise) missed Wednesday's Manchester, N.H., kick-off of the 51-city "American Idols Live" tour, blaming severe bronchitis and laryngitis. Her doctor, Sean Nassari, ordered "total voice rest," the Associated Press reports.
59-Year-Old Woman Delivers Twins
Here is an interesting article I had to post: Lauren Cohen of Paramus, New Jersey, will turn 60 next month – but her birthday present has already arrived: newborn twins.
The accomplishment equals the world record set by an unidentified British woman on Christmas Day 1993. Cohen is also the oldest American woman to bear twins. "I don't feel like a record holder," she tells PEOPLE. "Except for arthritis, I'm in excellent shape." Still, she's not encouraging other women her age to become mothers. "I don't think it's right to have a baby when you're close to 60 unless you're in an unusual situation like mine where you have a younger spouse who you can feel fully confident will be an involved parent," Cohen, who gave birth to a girl, Giselle, and a boy, Gregory, at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia on May 22, told the Bergen, N.J., Record. Cohen married Frank Garcia, a man roughly 20 years her junior, four years ago, and says she was worried about what would happen if she died first. "I didn't want him to be alone," she tells PEOPLE. Cohen and Garcia are also parents to daugher Raquel, 18 months, whom they conceived via in vitro fertilization using donor eggs. Cohen, who also has a 27-year-old daughter, Renée, by an earlier marriage, said she wanted Raquel to have a sibling. The October after Raquel's December 2004 birth, the couple used extra embryos from that IVF treatment to conceive again. Cohen – an attorney who works out of a ground-floor office in her two-story clapboard house – says she never discussed having children with Garcia, but sensed he wanted to be a father. "I just thought it would be unfair to Frank for him to marry me and never have the opportunity to have a child," she told the Record. "He never asked me to have a child, but I knew it would make him happy." That he seems to be. "Lauren has guts. She's amazing," he told the New York Post. "It was one of my dreams to have baby twins. It's like a miracle." Plus, Cohen told PEOPLE, "Frank will be a nurturing, hands-on father."
