If you’ve been sweating Jake Gyllenhaal’s shirtless “Prince Of Persia” pics, well, you’ll really enjoy watching him get into the groove at a bar in Russia.

Quotable: Jake Gyllenhaal Opens Up About Heath Ledger’s Death

“I don’t really like talking about it. That period of time was … it was difficult. He was very sensitive. He didn’t always have a sense of performance in his everyday life. He knew who he was.
