Actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who was just in Pittsburgh for three months to film the drama "Love and Other Drugs," gave high marks to his experience in the 'Burgh early this morning on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

It was so good, in fact, that he left with a Steelers logo tattooed on his lower back, which he showed to the audience to great applause. Whether it was temporary or permanent only he and his tattoo artist really know.

Mr. Gyllenhaal, whose newest movie, "Brothers," opens today in theaters, told Mr. Kimmel that he knew he was in Steeler country upon his arrival at Pittsburgh International Airport when when he saw a woman on the people mover with Steeler tattoos on both of her ankles.

He's been a Patriots fan, but came to love the Steelers, too, he said. He attended two games while here, and also talked about eating Primanti sandwiches and accepting a Terrible Towel from a fan.

During his stay for the movie filming, which also stars Anne Hathaway, he was spotted all over the city, visiting restaurants, coffee shops and jogging through Downtown.

Watch excerpts from the show featuring Mr. Gyllenhaal and what he had to say about Pittsburgh.
