How do you pronounce “Gyllenhaal”?

While doing press for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley and Gemma Arterton were interviewed by a guy who, instead of asking them the usual predictable questions, challenged them on how “Gyllenhaal” is actually pronounced. It turns out we’ve been saying it wrong for years!

“Yillenhulahay” is quite a mouth full, so I think it’s best if we just refer to Jake and Maggie with the usual “Gyllenhaal”.
