There was a moment in his new film "Demolition" that had Jake Gyllenhaal anxiously anticipated shooting.

“I was always looking on the schedule as to when the dancing was going to be because I was mostly just terrified," the 34-year-old confessed to USA Today while promoting his film at Toronto International Film Fest.

In the dramedy, he portrays an investment banker who has difficulty mourning the loss of his wife. His character has an emotional breakthrough and cuts a rug, but in reality, it was an unnerving experience for Gyllenhaal.

"I didn’t know even know how much I wanted to express — we’d pushed so much down in the process that when (director Jean-Marc Vallée) allowed it, he was like, ‘Here is your little ticket to ride and go.’ It’s all him and his strange little master plan he has.”
