Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is concerned that patterns of destruction have become more prevalent in society now than ever before.

The 35-year-old actor stars in new drama Demolition, about an investment banker named Davis, who suddenly finds his routine life unfulfilling, after losing his wife in a fatal car accident, reported Contactmusic.

Demolition review: Jake Gyllenhaal’s streak of success cannot be broken

Gyllenhaal’s character Davis demolishes many aspects of his life in the film and the screen star thinks similar acts of destruction are occurring literally and metaphorically in the wider community.

“I see it everywhere. I see it in bullying. It’s a preadolescent behaviour. Kids at a certain age build up blocks and a second later, they’ll kick them all down, and there’s this satisfaction. I see that when we talk about each other, when we criticise each other about things that are obvious projections, but hurt.”
