Southpaw and Brokeback Mountain star Jake Gyllenhaal has revealed his love of high street bakery giant Greggs.

The Oscar-nominated actor revealed in an interview with Magic FM that when in the UK he often headed to the bakery chain for a baguette. The story has now gone viral on social media, and appeared in national newspapers including The Guardian.

He said: "I eat Greggs, Greggs baguettes – that’s what I eat when I’m in London. If it’s sunny, I just find a green spot and sit. That’s what I do when I’m here.”

The high street chain responded  by tweeting a photo shopped picture of Gyllenhaal from his new film, and a Greggs baguette.

The bakery wrote: "We hear that #JakeGyllenhaal likes to go HAM on a Greggs when he's in London. #Southpaw."

Greggs will be announcing interim results for the 26 weeks to 4 July 2015, next Wednesday.
