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.
