Hi, Lembie,

I wrote this reply but somehow it didn't get entered, I see....

Yes, he is "kind of buff" in that shot. Perhaps that was taken during "Jarhead," a film for which, interviewers say, Gyllenhaal worked out two hours a day(minimum) with a drill-sergeant of a personal trainer, so that he'd look like the heavily-muscled marine sniper he was cast to portray. He had a scene in the film in which he was to dance naked except for a Santa-hat tied around his hips that flapped around over his Person rather like a triangular red-and-white fleece loin cloth. With no uniform to disguise his actual condition, his body had to look right.

However, the interview said, after he put on all that muscle for the film and stopped training, it went away again.
