Not any better

Flynet has posted pics of Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon out shopping on Saturday.

I think he really pushed himself last week at the Farmer's Market. But he's a trooper isn't he? One crutch! Nothing can keep this man down.

I blame the blue plaid flannel.

Not to worry, Jake, you'll be back in running form in no time.

Ack - poor baby! What sort of consensual horseplay has caused this injury to get worse?

But thanks for the running pics as counterpoint. I bet Jake is anxious to get back to that.

And to the horseplay!

bobbyanna said...

I'd bet he has either a stress fracture or a severe strain/sprain on a ligament. In either case, he needs to stay off the damned thing. Give it a chance to mend. I'm thinking the boy's in pain. Truthfully, there are any number of ways he could pass the time while his ankle is mending...at the very least, he should be on a couch with is leg propped up...

"I blame the blue plaid flannel."

Once again, I almost choked on the sip of whiskey and soda I had just taken. Honestly, you two should provide some kind of warning with this blog! :)

But I think UV is on target...... what ARE the 2 of them doing to further exacerbate his injury? And judging by these pics, Reese doesn't look like she feels the least little bit guilty for any setback their horseplay might have caused him.

And I wouldn't either......

lawgoddess said...

Ack! His injury is getting worse.

But I trust he will improve, and it is so much fun to think of the consensual horseplay that could have caused this.

Hope it's not a really bad ropeburn. :)

Great post, FL, as always. B.

sheba baby said...

Love the post, that damn blue flannel!

And I agree Bobbyanna, he hould be home with his foot up not out shopping!

agent_krycek said...

I stand alone and proud in liking that blue flannel - Jake, you can wear it round my house anytime, just the blue flannel though, nothing else* ;-)


*Well, you can leave your cast on!

Anonymous said...

Ah poor Jake, looks like Reese is carrying his coffee. I don't mind the shirt either.

chica said...

I was going to say poor Jake but I think that he was given that crutch when he first hurt his ankle and decided he didn't need it!!

Jake, please stay off your foot and let it heal properly, I know you love to be around Reese but you need to take care of your ankle.

PS: And please loose that jacket!

josie said...

Reese, take care of your man and slow down, LOL!!!

HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY EVERYONE!!

Reese & Jake sunday morning:

agent_krycek said...

Thanks Monica - what an odd life to lead, doing really mundane things and yet still getting groups round your car taking your photo.

How on earth does that consitute Jake walking backwards ??? he's walking with his head turned away from them, but it's in a definate forward direction - with accompanying limp from his poorly leg

bobbyanna said...

OK. So according to this video, they were in separate cars. She parallel parks in front, with her SUV, or station wagon or whatever it is. And he was parked in back. But that was him in his car slowing down to make sure she was OK getting into her car, right?
He is limping a bit.

Anonymous said...

These pics and the x17 video don't look as if they are from the same day.

gabbana said...

No crutch, but he is limping.....thanks for the video, Monica.

I am surprised that they were using two different cars - wouldn´t it make more sense with his ankle injured that she is driving with him being the passenger??

shondra said...

The clip is short and they are in seperate cars but i didn't see the slowing down part.

Yes he is limping, if this was Sunday and the other pics of them are from Saturday then why isn't he using his crutch?? Tsk tsk Jake!

He also is turning his head away from the paps, he has been doing that a bit I noticed.

Geez, it looks like they don't get a moments peace, 2 days in a row, no wonder they look cranky soem times!

FluorescentLamp said...

He doesn't look all that lame in the Sunday X17 vid. So I don't see why it would bother him to drive, especially since it's his left ankle that's sprained and he doesn't need his left foot to drive. :-)

Unless he's a two-footed driver of an automatic shift car like me, in which case he WOULD need his left foot to drive. ;-p

shondra said...

Ok, I went back to look at the video, yes he is still limping but the fact that he was using his crutch one day and then not the next probably means he thinks tha it's no big deal and he doesn't need to be driven around.

Bobbyanna, is that Jake in the beggining of the video slowing down as Reese is getting in her car? I can't tell and the way it's shot, Jake comes out after her maybe he came out 1st??

Anyway they seem to be off and on regarding the paps but he definately wasn't happy to se them yesterday.

FluorescentLamp said...

Different car. The car that slows as Reese gets into her SUV is a black BMW. Jake was getting into his slate gray Toyota Camry hybrid.

bobbyanna said...

Oddly,at times they seem fine with attention, and then they don't. I'm not talking about paps per se, bcz they probably hate pap intrusions, generally, but tolerate them better at some times then at others.

But what I'm talking about is how sometimes they duck and dodge and turn away, hide faces, etc. and travel separately, and other times they are all hugged up.

This phenom usually occurs when something is going on. Like promoting a movie, or some other stuff. I wonder if something is happening, or about to happen, and they are doing the separate act for a reason. Bcz with these two, they do stuff for a reason. Or so it seems.

get real said...

Ay poor Jake. :( Not liking to see him continue to be injured. I do hope he will take care of himself and that he will be taken care of by Reese and all his loved ones. Thanks for all the info/links, etc.

agent_krycek said...

Hmmm, looking at the HQs that Stephs just posted I have a new theory - the Nailed rumour is just a smokescreen and Jake's next film is the Moon Project, which is actually a futuristic update of Treasure Island, with Jake playing Space Captain Long John Silver - Jake's gone all method, and hence the crutch as he gets himself into the role - it'll be an eye patch next I tells ya!*


*apologies to the above nonsense, I'm very bored at work today

FluorescentLamp said...

Aaaarrrr, matey!

Pirates in Space!

Can't wait!

gyllenspooner. said...

What do you mean bobbyanna?

Personally I think that the paps have been a little too close for comfort lately. They've been photographed A LOT these past two weeks. I think Jake is probably just sick of it. Besides, he's probably feeling some discomfort with the foot and is ready to SNAP, lol.

Reese seemed okay. It was Jake who seemed pissed.

The only thing these two are "up to" is that they are probably living together now, or about to be living together, and are making their arrangements, decorating, etc. I wonder if they will spend Easter together? Reese goes to church with her kids.

bobbyanna said...

I don't really "mean" anything important. It's just that in the past, Rendition being the classic example, when something was going on, like doing/promoting the movie, Reese and Jake tried to keep their private lvies under wraps. It sems they've done it several times since then, most recently before Reese was promoting Penelope. And in the past, there were the divorce related issues, too. So I was wondering out loud what might be going on that would cause them to not want to be seen together...after they were seen together. I know. I'm not saying this very well. And maybe I see patterns where there are none.

gyllenspooner said...

Hey anon 2:16,

I never thought of that. That would explain why they've been spotted shopping together so much.

Good call. Does anyone else think that moving in together may be imminent?

No worries Bobbyanna,

I understand what you were getting at. I guess the reason I don't necessarily agree with that is because, first of all, I don't think either of them have anything to promote. Second, Reese just finished her promoting "Penelope" I can't think of anything else she'd be promoting so soon.

I just think Jake is getting sick of the attention. I have heard people say how he never smiles the way he use to with the paps. But he is under so much more scrutiny now than he ever was before. Before he probably had someone take his pic at events and premieres and maybe a candid once in a while. Now he's constantly harrassed by the paps.

I can't imagine that being too much fun after a while.

gyllenspooner said...

One more thing...

Reese's birthday is this upcoming weekend. What do you think Jake has planned for her?

Evening peeps,
Glad to be back at home.
Poor Jakey. I think he was in pain last week when I saw him walking alone without Reese bringing back the coffee.

Jake in pain


Of course some male persons happy and in love would never let a significant female person in on their discomfort. Silly men.

I should never be drink Sprite Zero and read this blog...Blame the blue plaid flannel:):lol:lol...



Now is the time for all Gyllenblogs and Gyllenspoon blogs--the new blog loves the Gyllenspoons as much as we do-- to come to the aid of our Jakey:)
Be good to yourself Jakey. We love you over here:)

Thank you UV for trying on another forum.

ultraviolet said...

Ah, it feels good to be back in the friendly waters! Gyllenspooner, while it's true that the pap pressure on Jake is at an all-time high, he is no stranger to the papa. If anything, there are fewer Jake pigs than inprevious years, mostly because Jake and Reese go put of their way to avoid them.

I can't remember what else I was going to say! That's the sad state of my brain these days.

Okay, my post is hilarious. Sorry for the typos. Blame the MBTA and the iPhone.

Whoa, UV!!! And a very Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Gyllenspooner, I know they don't appear to have anything to promote. That was my point. I was wondering out loud, if anything might be going on that would cause them to act like they weren't together. It's a mystery! It lends itself to speculation. LOL!


Oh, and thank you very much, FL. When I finally get my new glasses I will once again be able to tell grey from black...and Toyotas from BMW!!!!:)

Anonymous said...

I think they are pretty much living together, the pics on Sat. were taken on Sat. as were the video on Sunday and it looks like it was in the morning.

There were pap pics of Deaconand Ryan on Thursday, the day after the market pics.

My take on it is that he has been hanging out in Brentwood pretty much all week and that Ryan had the kids. She may feel a bit uncomfortable if it got out that he spends most of his time there.

The Sunday video would indicate to me that that he was going back to his place, maybe Ryan was dropping the kids back or she was picking them up so it was time for him to go home.

Just speculation of course!

office of nancy pelosi said...

Oops!That was me, I meant to say the pics and video were taken in Brentwood/

UltraViolet said...

I love that the Page Six folks are as concerned abot Jake as we are:

As PageSix.com first reported last week, Jake Gyllenhaal hurt his ankle playing pick-up basketball. Now, just like we didn't want to get anyone riled up when we first showed pictures of him in an air cast as he limped around Santa Monica with gal pal Reese Witherspoon, so do we want everyone to remain calm now with this new shot of him with a crutch.

Yes, we know, it looks bad. But take deep breaths, relax and know that he is getting better, even if this shot of him hobbling around Brentwood for a cup of morning coffee suggests differently.


The more interesting item was this sighting:

Jake Gyllenhaal at Dermalogica in LA
1022 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA


I have gone to that Dermalogica store every time I've been to LA. Okay, not every time, but a lot of times. And I've never seen Jake once!

bobbyanna said...

office of nancy pelosi, THANK YOU! That makes the most sense to me too. On this, we agree!! LOL!!


I was also "consulting" :), with someone who knows about such things, and she speculated that it is a very real possibility that the paps get more $$$$ when they get pics of them together. When they get separate shots not so much $$$. The pic where Reese is so far in front of him when he is on his crutch, the guess was that she was trying to move out of the shot.

Also, my consultant speculated that R&J might be more irritated with these LA paps then the ones in other places,(NYC) and so make things harder for them. Kind of payback.

UltraViolet said...

I think your "consultant" was right, Bobbyanna. It's clear the paps want the money shot of Jake and Reese together, and on some days, like at the Farmers Market, they don't mind giving it to them. Other days, they resist.

Also, who knows what really was going on in the crutch pics. We all remember the NYC pics where people tried to say "Look, Jake doesn't even want to walk with her," when in reality, he was going ahead to open the door for Reese.

Reese & Jake: the odd couple

Hey UV, good to hear from you! :)

Where was the Dermalogica sighting from? Also, what kind of store is that, a pharmacy?

Hope everyone had a good St. Pat's Day!

UltraViolet said...

Hi gr - the sighting was on that Page Six link. It was from Friday, March 7, I see that part got cut off fro my post.

Honestly, it's as if I've been at the Guinness all day. I swear I haven't touched a drop!

Someone posted this on DC last night - I keep forgetting to post it. The Brothers plot synopsis from JoBlo:

Michael has everything under control: a successful military career, a beautiful wife and two daughters. His younger brother is a drifter, living on the edge of the law. When Michael is sent to Afghanistan on a UN mission the balance between the two brothers changes forever. Michael is missing in action - presumed dead - and Sarah is comforted by her brother-in-law, who against all odds shows himself capable of taking responsibility for both himself and the family. It soon becomes clear that their feelings have developed beyond mutual sympathy. When Michael comes home, traumatized by being held prisoner in the mountains of Afghanistan, nothing is the same...

As someone who is trying to remain spoiler-free, that reveals just enough to make me happy.

Anonymous said...

Is it just me or is Reese's stomach sorta popping out of her sweater a little. You can't see the picture where it is here, but it is on IHJ.
Sorry, I'm a little obsessed with the thought of a Gyllenbaby.

UltraViolet said...

And I left out the part about Dermalogica. It's a skin care line, sold only in certain stores, I think. I don't use it, but my LA traveling companion does, and he always goes there to buy it.

Thanks UV.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, and did I mention how happy I was to see Natalie Portman's character's name?

I was glad to see that too UV. Just wish we also had Jake's character name.

You are not the only one anon. The link by Monica from x17online about the video already discussed includes a picture of Reese. I don't know when it was taken, I don't think it was the same day, but check out her tummy.

Anonymous said...

Which picture? I thought I did check out her "weight gain" but I didn't notice anything.

Anonymous said...

Gotta check out boobs. Bigger boobs are a dead giveaway. I'm not seeing it.

josie said...

I can't tellanything from the Sat. pics but you can see her tummy in some of the market pics from Wed.

The current pic on x17online she is wearing a striped shirt and carrying 2 shoppings bags and juice, look at her tummy (monica provided the link).

Again, I don't know if this pic is recent or not.

FluorescentLamp said...

Hm, looks like that JoBlo Brothers synopsis was lifted word for word from the Brodre synopsis on IMDB.

Brodre: Michael has everything under control: a successful military career, a beautiful wife and two daughters. His younger brother Jannik is a drifter, living on the edge of the law. When Michael is sent to Afghanistan on a UN mission the balance between the two brothers changes forever. Michael is missing in action - presumed dead - and Sarah is comforted by Jannik, who against all odds shows himself capable of taking responsibility for both himself and the family. It soon becomes clear that their feelings have developed beyond mutual sympathy. When Michael comes home, traumatized by being held prisoner in the mountains of Afghanistan, nothing is the same...

IMDB Plot Summary for Brodre

I think the Americanized version of Jannick would be John.

josie said...

Reese has never really been flat-chested, so i really don't go by that.

Her tush and thighs look well, a bit more "full" but that may be from excercising and her tummy may be just normal bloating.

It's just harmless speculating on my part anyway.

FluorescentLamp said...

Oh and here's a link to the HQs of Reese the other morning with bags of breakfast to go.

Reese at Le Pain Quotidien

And just for the hell of it, Natalie Portman already working on her next film in Brooklyn, New York, I Love You

Okay, one more, Michelle and Matilda on a scooter. That child is going to be so tall.

bobbyanna said...

Hey, FL!!! Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I've been looking very carefully at the pictures at the link you provided and Reese just looks like herself, altho, I would agree she has a nice butt thing goin' on:) I was more concerned about her jewelry...or rather its lack! Just the piece around her neck.

Matilda is beautiful...exactly like her father. And yeah. I think she will have outgrown mom by the time she is ten! I love that crash helmut. Nice interview with Michelle in new Elle Magazine, I think. Done January 21st in Sweden. Anyway, Matilda is a very verbal little toddler!

agent_krycek said...

I think the Americanized version of Jannick would be John.

Having seen the original I was wondering about that, as in the original Tobey and Natalie's characters names are both pretty universal, but Jake's character names isn't. I was sort of hoping for Jack though.

Again, I'm saying nothing about Reese's figure, but I may start knitting some booties in the near future ;-)

And in other sad news, director Anthony Minghella died today. He was only 54.

This really saddens me not only because he directed one of my favorite films ever - Truly, Madly, Deeply but because he was also a Gyllenhaal family friend. :-(

Anonymous said...

Personally I think she looks normal in those photos.

But I'm beginning to think that the moving in together scenerio is imminent.

P.S. Isn't Le Pain Quotidien a health/organic food store/restaurant? Wasn't there a recent story somewhere about Jake turning Reese onto health food/organic food?

Anonymous said...

FL,

HOLY F'IN' CRAP!

How did he die? He was pretty young.

Long time lurker said...

Apparently he died of a brain hemmorage. He was having some routine surgery and something went wrong with his brain.

Crazy.

It's funny that someone above mentioned Natalie's new film in NYC. He was the director of that film. So now Natalie has lost her co-star (he abruptly quit) and her director in 48 hours.

Me thinks they may postpone.

Anthony Minghella died?? Didn't he direct the English Patient?

I can't believe it, and he was so young.

Yup, love that film - very sad, he also wrote, and possibly directed (not sure) the adaptation of The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency which is screening on the BBC over Easter, and I've been looking forward to for ages.

Didn't know he was a Gyllenhaal family friend

sheba baby said...

He also is listed as writer for Cold Mountain and the Talented Mr. Ripley, I can't believe he's gone.

UltraViolet said...

Eek - that is terrible news about Anthony Minghella.

I feel bad posting something silly/trivial, but it looks like X17 thinks R&J are altar-bound:

We thought Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal looked a little formal for a Sunday morning when we caught them out over the weekend - and now we know why!

Turns out we caught up with the couple after their first destination - a little chapel where they enjoyed a private sermon together!

Wow! Goin' to the chapel? Think they're gonna get married?

shondra said...

I saw that UV and I was about to post it!

First they say that they were dressed a bit formal for a Sunday, I say the opposite, they looked very casual.

Second how did they know they went to church before hand especially if they were in seperate cars.

There was some chatter last year of them attending church together a few times and Sunday was Palm Sunday, if so you would think that they would be a little more dressed up, Hmmmmm.

That said this isn't the first time that site has hinted at marriage or that flynet tags their pictures of them with wedding bells, do they know something??

Anyway Jake isn't turning his head away from the cameras in these few shots.

They weren't photographed together and travelled in seperate cars and now I think I know why: If true they didn't wan't the paps following them to services.

Hmmm, the plot is thickening, obviously in the same area, but travelling separtely in a bid to throw the paps off, Jake does look slightly more dressed up then normal non-working Jake (he can be a scruffy little blighter at times) and then throw a visit to a church into the mix ..... hmmmm
