Jake Gyllenhaal Went On A Bizarre Rant About Benedict Cumberbatch And Cabbage Patch Kids That Has Everyone Confused

Trending



Jake Gyllenhaal's second nonsensical rant in just a few days has fans wondering, what's up, Jake?


After an enthusiastic declaration that the singer of 2005's "Temperature" and "Beautiful Girls," Sean Paul, was a genius:

"Sean Paul is MASSIVELY OVERRATED!": Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal Unpopular Opinion www.youtube.com

Gyllenhaal most recently went on a mysterious rant about Cabbage Patch Kids and Benedict Cumberbatch and we're not really sure where that intense word salad came from:

"Benedict Cabbage Patch, his great grandfather actually started Cabbage Patch and they were a big thing in the 90s and how Benedict got his start in the business was his uncle who obviously became really wealthy through all of the profits."

"His uncle flew him to London and put him in an apartment and then he started his career. The truth of the matter is without Cabbage Patch Kids, Benedict Cabbage Patch wouldn't have a career and you wouldn't have Doctor Strange."

We are guessing this is meant to be a clever play on the name Cumberbatch.

Gyllenhaal and Cumberbatch will, as of Spider-Man: Far From Home, both be key players in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange and Gyllenhaal as Mysterio.

While going on this nonsensical cabbage patch rant, Gyllenhaal's co-star, Tom Holland, just stared at him looking lost and confused.





This is so out of left field that it should seem surprising, but apparently, Jake Gyllenhaal has been a noted weirdo for quite some time:

"Jake Gyllenhaal is kind of an oddball. Jake Gyllenhaal believes the moon affects human behavior."
"Jake Gyllenhaal refuses to tell people how tall he is. Jake Gyllenhaal can quote South Pacific."
"But Jake Gyllenhaal is the kind of oddball everyone loves — he's handsome, of course, he named his dogs after To Kill a Mockingbird characters, he dated Taylor Swift and he dumped Taylor Swift."






We wonder if the idea for Benedict Cabbagepatch was originally sprung from this fun Benedict Cumberbatch name generator, which also includes fun variations such as "Budapest Cul-de-sac" and "Butawhiteboy Cantbekhan".





Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out July 2, 2019.

In addition to seeing Holland and the lovable cast of teenage characters from the first film making a return, we are really looking forward to seeing how Gyllenhaal's character, Mysterio, will be handled. Mysterio is a famous antagonist of Peter Parker's Spider-Man, but the trailer makes him appear to be a hero.

Perhaps this turn of motivation has something to do with Cabbage Patch Kids, too?
