Jake Gyllenhaal is the face of Prada's Luna Rossa Ocean scent.

The 'Southpaw' actor was the ideal choice for the campaign for the summer fragrance, as a keen sailor himself, with the perfume sharing the same name as Prada boss Patrizio Bertelli's sailing team.

He said: “I have a very personal connection to sailing.

“I grew up around the ocean. My uncle was a really incredible sailor, and I sailed with him when I was younger. I love sailing, and I love the metaphor of it, of feeling free and finding that space where you give in to the power of nature. I think in some way it helps to deepen your connection with the world around you.”

On filming the shoot, he continued: “For the campaign shoot, I was able to be active. I love sailing and am in awe of the athletes who sail the Luna Rossa.

And the 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' star added how he was in awe of director Johan Renck and the "real humanity" he brought to the project.

He gushed: “I am a fan of Johan.
