Amanda Peet has revealed that she asked Jake Gyllenhaal what director Roland Emmerich was like before agreeing to star in 2012.

The actress told Parade that she wanted to make sure that the director was good to work with.

Peet said: "I emailed Jake Gyllenhaal, who was in Day After Tomorrow, before I signed on.

"I said, 'Is Roland Emmerich great or is he a nightmare? Tell me the truth because life is short and I need to know what's up'. And Jake replied, 'He is the most divine, great person to work for ever and you should run and do it'."

Of the movie's end-of-the-world theme, she added: "I couldn't be more skeptical. I think there's a lot to be concerned about, but that's the least of my worries. I don't believe in that stuff. I'm scared of other things, like global warming and wars."
