Washington (ANI): Actor Jake Gyllenhaal doesn"t like being part of "preachy" movies, because he thinks films are not meant for sending political messages. The 26-year old star, insisted that 'Brokeback Mountain", his gay cowboy drama, and 'Rendition", which dealt with terrorist issues, just happened to be topical. "It's very important for me to be in movies that don't have a message. Messages tend to be a little preachy, and I don't think that's what movies are about," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

"It's important for me to be in movies that have a human level, have a heart in them. “That's the reason why I did this (Rendition) and it just so happens to be really topical. This political issue is a very important one right now, which as Americans we need to look at. "So it seems like it's (the film) is very political, it seems like there's a message in it, but ultimately there's a real story about human beings dealing with actual human things," he added.
