Thanks to Stephanie for this ultra-clear, ultra-sharp version of one of our favorite Jake pictures of all time. From Vitals magazine, Winter, 2005.

It was a very good year.

In other news, new on-set photos from Nailed. Looks to be the funeral scene? I think the vicar with the collar gives that away. ;-)







Kinda digging Jessica's spectator slingbacks.

Someone on IMDb mentioned possible statehouse filming tomorrow. But this bloggerhas a call tomorrow:

Oh, and I'm going to be in a movie. They're filming a movie called "Nailed" in Columbia right now. I sent my picture into the casting company a few days ago and they called me tonight to ask me if I wanted to be "the photographer at the funeral". So, of course I said yes! We'll see how all of that works out. I have to be there at 9:00 a.m., and possibly until 9:00 p.m. at night. This both worries me and excites me. But hey, maybe I'll get to see Jake Gyllenhaal in the flesh!

I'm guessing that the funeral is for the Speaker of the House who chokes on that cookie (am I the only one who sees the funny parallel with George W. Bush choking on a pretzel?). I'm also assuming that the reason they went back to the state house this week was because they finally recast the role of the speaker and shot his scenes.

bobbyanna said...

FL, I "clicked to embiggen" and immediately felt very lightheaded! i was going to go get ready for bed...Nobody does CFM better then Jake. This picture is ...IMVHO...his "signature look."

A thousands thanks!!!!;)

FluorescentLamp said...

We aims ta please, bobbyanna!

My suggestion? Settle in bed BEFORE you click to embiggen, especially when it's one of his "signature" looks. ;-*

Have no sensible comment to make after looking at that photo, but in a very happy place right now, which might not be best seeing it's 9am in the morning here and I'm supposed to be doing some work.

*Thinks *sod work* and goes back to drooling*

brothers spy said...

I have a big announcement to make later today...

I think many of you will be very interested in what I will have to tell you...

Come back later to find out more...

sheba baby said...

Well that picture is better than a cup of coffee, I always loved that picture of Jake, Thanks!

It does sound like they recast the choking o a cooke Speaker of the house.

Hmmm, brothers spy: Could it have anything to do with POP???

Meant to add, even his hairstyle for this cannot disguise how gorgeous he is.

sallykirkland said...

Perhaps they decided not to recast. Instead they'll just have a funeral with an extra playing the body, and not show the actual choking. It's possible they may have re-written the scene. OTOH, they may just hire an unknown local play The Speaker. Somebody who can cough and choke at the same time...a very special skill.

In those pictures, he looks more cunning then clueless.

Amen, amen AMEN!!!! Thank you and Stephanie both for this sexy hot delicious picture. That look on his face, oooohhhhhh my.

No worries UV, re the last post. It's all good. :) I hope all is okay with Suvee too.

OMG, thank you FL! THUD is right. What an amazing picture of Jake...sigh.

Brothers Spy, now you got me all curious! You tease. ;)

Thanks for the new Nailed set pics. Jake has a smirk going on. :p I am still not used to that part in his hair, lol. I agree that maybe they are not recasting the Speaker so they are just having a funeral. Can't wait to find out when the movie comes out.

gabbana said...

What a nice surprise this (late) morning...Hot Jake and now smirking Jake on the set...

@brothers spy - script of Nailed??

I am halfway through the Brothers script. What a great role for Jake (not to mention Tobey and Natalie) - but the film will need a bit buzz and good critics - I am hoping for some film festivals, Toronto and Venice would be great.

chica said...

I clicked on the pic for the full glory, sigh. What a great way to start the day!!

LOL at the new set pics on IHJ, everyone looks so somber except Jake, what a smirk! I bet this is the funeral scene and his character isn't too upset at the speakers demise.

You have me curious brothers spy. nailed scipt maybe?

That picture should be blown up to poster size! (sigh!) I wanna have his babies!

shondra said...

He really is rocking that young republican look!

Jake is so hot in red, thanks!

bobbyanna said...

OK. I've been looking at That Picture again? And I don't want to sound foolish(!) But this might be a great example of the synergy that occurs when we actually witness the fusion between the Irresistable Force and the Immovable Object...purely from a Scientific persective...

Monica said...

What great way to start the morning!

The hair of Jake is very funny!
Jake is very sexy! OMG!

agent_krycek said...

Marc Jacobs plaid wool pants and suspenders

This makes me laugh, a lot, because in the UK suspenders are the things we use to keep our stockings up - which is giving me a strange visual of Jakey having some, err, unusual, underwear on under that suit.

New photos, judging by them I'm definately going with the 'clueless' rather then 'ruthless' description, it's all in the hairdo.

UltraViolet said...

Hee, Bobbyanna - I'm guessing Jake is the irresistible force. Are you the immovable object?

Though how could one not be moved by that picture??

Also, add me to the list of those guessing the bug surprise from Brothers Spy is the Nailed script. Someone on imdb has it for trade. So if you want it, go there and contact the person.

And remember please - no spoilers here!

Apparently, Jake was part of a video tribute to Larry McMurtry from the LA Public Library.

It makes me sad when I realize that Jake will have to do all of these BBM-related things now. No Heath there to partner with.

sass said...

Afternoon UV and FL,
Thanks goodness I am in bed. Jake sprawled and looking mad sexy in that chair made me
lightheaded (hi bobbyanna)immediately. *thud*:)

I'm loving the movie snaps, I even love Jake's hair??? Now, I can't wait to see what David O. Russell has wrought ON THAT SET with my favorite actor.

Thanks again for being here...I feel for Jake too UV...love y'all

bobbyanna said...

"Hee, Bobbyanna - I'm guessing Jake is the irresistible force. Are you the immovable object? "

No, no, UV! I was suggesting that there was a "fusion" between the Irresistable Force and the Immovable Object in Jake. I see him as both in this picture. Sort of Immovably Irresistable...or Irresistably Immovable...or, put another way: Not just sexually available, but inevitable?
(sigh!)
nevermind.

UltraViolet said...

Hee, I love it, Bobbyanna. He's the irresistible force, and the immovable object because no matter how long you stare, he's still in the chair and not in your bed ;)

bobbyanna said...

Sorry to spam, but i just found this quote that sort of sums Jake up for me...

"I'm limitless as far as age is concerned…As long as he has a driver's license. I don't want to pick him up."

candiejr8 said...

I'm looking forward to hear what Brothers Spy surprise is. Hope it is the script from Nailed!

And Jake looks great in the set pics! I actually kinda like his hair like that.

FluorescentLamp said...

I should think it would be 'business as usual' for Jake dealing with BBM. God bless Heath, but we all know Jake did the brunt of PR for that film.

josie said...

Thanks for the link to the McMultry video tribute, Love all his work: The Last Picture Show, Lonesome Dove and of course BBM.

Jake looks like a schoolboy with his hair like that and thank you and thanks to IHJ as well for the new/old redtro Jake pic!

I've got the script for NAILED!

I literally got it 11 minutes ago so I have no idea if it's good or not. But I have all 128 pages of it.

We'll follow the same procedure as before. If you want it ask me on the other blogger account. Leave your email address and i'll send it to you. If I sent you a script before and you have my email address, you can just email me personally if you want to.

You have no idea how much trouble I went to to get this. But I finally got it. It must be "out there" now because I actually got it from two different people.

suvee said...

Thanks to IHJ and anon 6:59 for the onset pics. It's fun to see the Gyllensmirk making an appearance in a movie..... and at a funeral yet! I'm still holding out hope that Young Republican Howard is something a little more sexy than "clueless".

get real, all is ok with me, too. :)

Bette said...

Brothers spy, how exciting! I went ahead and e-mailed you. ;-*

FluorescentLamp said...

Just a reminder - if you're interested in hearing more about the Nailed script, head on over to Jake Spoilers.

Thanks and enjoy.

UltraViolet said...

I'll be curious to hear the verdict on the Nailed script. Not spoilers :) Just thumbs up or down, funny or not?

Speaking of funny... or not, more from the VerboseExtra.

Bette said...

UV, no spoilers, promise. It's pretty good if you like offbeat darker comedies. So I'm going to go with thumbs up, but we'll see when it finally comes out how the lines are delivered.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, thanks for the review, Bette! I do like dark comedies, so I'm looking forward to it.

I can't resist one more question - is Jake's character more on the clueless or cunning side?

FluorescentLamp said...

Both and neither. :-D

Bette said...

To me he didn't seem that clueless, just kind of a big dope, have you ever seen Intolerable Cruelty? Clooney's character in that, reminds me a lot of Jake's character in Nailed.

bobbyanna said...

So then you might say he is cluelessly cunning rather then cunningly clueless, yes?
(My brain is suffering from extreme flatulence today and I blame The Picture!)

brothers spy said...

Sorry. I didn't mean to spoil the story. I just wanted to point out that he probably won't shoot the entire ten weeks. I imagine that Jessica will be filming at least three weeks with her family and/or non-"Washington" scenes.

UltraViolet said...

I deleted it, so it's fine. I know the spoiler line is hazy. But any kind of specific information like that is what I would consider a spoiler.

Anonymous said...

This is a bit about a local man so they say has signed up for POP, they seem to think Jake is definitely in it.

bobbyanna said...

Hi,All! While I'm excited about POP, I hate to be a nag.I know i raised this before... but...the hair....I'm worried...can we contact the director and tell him No Farrah Fawcett?

chica said...

Well if Jake is in it, they should be making an anouncement soon, it's suppose to start shooting next month according to all reports.

I thought that since Jessica plays the main character in Nailed that she would be required to be on set for most of the ten weeks, Jake may wrap his part in a few weeks and that would give him time in between to film POP.

It seems we were right about the Nailed script brothers spy, thanks!!!

OT: Wasn't this the same Mendes film Jake and Reese was attached to briefly? Farlanders I believe, but according to Variety, it's untitled but it's the same cast listed on IMDB:

From Variety



Mendes swaps in Maggie Gyllenhaal
Actress replaces Toni Collette in Focus comedy

Special Report:

Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal will replace Toni Collette in Sam Mendes' untitled relationship comedy for Focus Features.
Film, which stars John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph, is about a young couple who travel around the U.S. searching for a place to put down roots. Dave Eggers and wife Vendela Vida penned the original screenplay.

Gyllenhaal will play a bohemian college professor who is an old friend of the character played by Krasinski.

Collette dropped out of the film due to scheduling delays on the shoot, which recently got under way in Connecticut. Gyllenhaal begins lensing her role next week.

Gyllenhaal next appears in Warner Bros. summer tentpole "The Dark Knight" as Rachel Dawes, Batman's love interest.

She is repped by CAA, Benderspink and attorney Alan Hergott.

BTW, this is the 2nd film that Jake was rumored to be attached to and Maggie ended up being in it. Remember the TDK and his named being mentioned as Harvey Dent Z(To be played by Aaron Eckhartin TDK) and now this.

Update from that blogger that was posted on the previous post:


http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=64712127&blogID=389173549


Well, it was another gruelling day at the shoot. Jake Gyllenhall seems to be opening up a lot more and conversing with the older adults, he is a likable guy. He never seems to run out of enthusiasm and energy even after we've been on the shoot for almost 15 hours straight! I heard Reese Witherspoon was in town lately to meet up with him and Justin Timberlake has been around too so he could spend time with Jessica Biel.

I was wondering if Reese made a visit to the set. He said "in town lately". The last pap pics are of her coming out of a gym on Tuesday and I think she had the kids this past weekend. There are pap picsof Ryan picking Deacon up from pre-school on Wednesday. Could she have and still be in SC Wed/Thur/ and maybe until she has to go to DC for the walk??

JT was in NY on Wed. with Modanna, but I heard that he was sighted with Jessica as well after.

BTW: The blogger doesn't have nice things about Biel nor Tracy Morgan, seems to like Jake!

Monica said...

Does Jake agreed to POP?

Thank you for all this information!

shondra said...

Thanks for the blog info on Reese extra! I was wondering if she made a visit on the set yet. I wonder if she is still there as well? It could be that Ryan has the kids all week up to Sunday.

And thanks for the info on POP anon @ 7:02AM!! I find it odd that the actor in the article (Reece!) Ritchie auditioned for the part back in Jan. I thought they usually cast the lead 1st, not the supporting parts. Also that actor looks like he could play the lead, he seems up and coming as the article points out and although Jake is a bigger name, fan boys don't care who the lead is in movies like this.

gabbana said...

"Also that actor looks like he could play the lead, he seems up and coming as the article points out and although Jake is a bigger name, fan boys don't care who the lead is in movies like this."

I have to disagree here - for example, when Heath was cast as the Joker it caused a riot between the Batman fanboys. And if Jake will play Dastan, it will also cause mixed reactions and discussions. I have read through some messageboards during the last weeks......

And if Latinoreview is right and the offer went to Jake, there were surely negotiations before. And perhaps also auditions.

What makes me wonder is that the side is so sure - they do not even putting Jakes name with a question-mark or a "supposed". So where did they get their information from?

If it is true and done right, this could be a great opportunity for Jake like "Captain Sparrow" was for Johnny Depp and if Jake gets some space to work with the character it could be beyond the stereotypes of such blockbusters.

Narcissa said...

Fanboys care very much about casting, as those of us who sometimes hang out on the superhero boards (sad, I know) can confirm. Now, fanboys who "believed in" Heath as Joker and RDJ as Iron Man are patting themselves on the back.

sass said...

Afternoon UV, FL, brothers Spy and everyone:)
TY for all the set information. I do love reading about energetic Jake, still going for 15 hours a day sometimes, and I am Glad to know Reese is visiting Jake...that has to help. I read once, that Matt Damon couldn't work away from home for long periods of time, if he didn't have his family with him.

So is Jake really on next month for Prince of Persia?
If so that is Fantastic news.

About those fantastic fanboys, having a my own personal fanboy at home allows me to agree..they CARE :lol
My homegrown fanboy went to see Iron Man and loved it last night. ..plus RDJr is getting rave reviews. GO Robert Downey Jr.

brothers spy said...

So i'm guessing that he'll go right into shooting POP from shooting Nailed. Like I wrote yesterday, I seriously doubt that Jake will be shooting the entire time. It's likely he'll be done by June.

I wonder how long the POP shoot will last. I know that article revealled that he'll be shooting in Morrocco. But location shots are usually only PART of the shoot for those types of films. The other part, the majority part, being in some Los Angeles sound stage.

I think a little investigation is in order.

BTW, did everyone get the scripts I sent them?

Bette said...

I got the Nailed, and Four Christmases script, but not POP.

Is anybody worried this might effect Jake's relationship with Reese? They are such a cute couple, it's a shame if he might possibly be shooting back to back movies in London. Let's hope, like Brothers Spy said that some of it will be done in LA. There's no way Reese can follow to London full time because she has joint custody with Ryan. I mean they could work it out, but it will be tough.

On the other hand, this could also be Jake's huge break he needs to get in to the A+ list and I'm sure Reese understands that.

brothers spy said...

Where did you hear he'd be shooting in London?

Bette said...

In the article it says most of it will be shot in London and Morocco.

UltraViolet said...

The article said the filming would be in Morocco and Pinewood Studios in London.

It was fun to read Verbose Blogger's new set reports. Now those are the details I like to hear!

It's great to think Reese might have made it for a visit.

And Bette, I think it will definitely affect Jake and Reese's relationship to spend so much time apart. They were lucky to be able to be together for most of the beginning of their relationship.

But they seem solid, so I think they can get through it. With lots of visits and lots of down time.

Bette said...

UV, I'm hoping so because they are my favorite celeb couple. I'd hate to see them go down without a fight.

brothers spy said...

Damn. I hadn't read the part about Pinewood Studios. I assumed they would be filming in an LA studio, not a London studio.

So I guess he will be away. You Anglos should keep your ears to the grindstone. The ball has been passed on to you.

I don't think it'll affect his relationship with Reese. Remember that Ryan gets the kids for half the summer. So it probably won't be so bad. She'll work it out so that she'll spend a couple weeks with him in London, i'm sure.

brothers spy said...

Also, Ryan will get the kids for the whole week for Fathers Day.

chica said...

Yes, I got the Nailed script brothers spy, thnaks!!

I wouldn't worry about Jake and Reese and his schedule, they seem solid and there will be time off during filming, plenty of time to get together.

It seems that she visited the set of Nailed, that great to hear. She also visited the set of Brothers, I can see her visiting him in the UK and Morocco as well seeing that Ryan has custody of the kids half of the summer!

gabbana said...

Thanks for the "Nailed" script, Brothers Spy!

After reading through some pages it is good to know that they took good actors....strange stuff!

Monica said...

Thank you for the roadmap Brothers Spy!

The name is Aaron, then he is a Jewish congressman?

But I hope to make success! Jake deserves!

There is nothing wrong with Jake shooting movies in London, in fact it's the rightest thing in the entire world, hey Jake, fancy going down White Hart Lane with me to see the might Spurs (he's so a Spurs fan :D) - *London based Babbler squeees very, very loudly and attempts to work out exactly where exactly flaming Pinewood Studios are to aid potential stalking*

Anonymous said...

Isn't Reese's schedule pretty light this summer? I think it's really getting harder for them to be apart too long. I just have this strong feeling about it.

IMO, this relationship is way beyond serious. I think, in a way, they're almost married right now.

Right after the 2007 Oscars, she jumps on a plane for NYC to meet him when he finishes promoting Zodiac,before he goes back to Morocco to work.

She goes to Paris to meet him after he goes to Cannes. She flew to New Mexico who knows how many times to be with him, and she's probably in North Carolina as we speak, not to mention at least two weeks on Martha's Vineyard last summer, one with kids one without.

She is willing to go where he is to be with him, and that's really major. The fact he spends time with her kids is majorly major!

At first I thought this might be a fling after she broke up with Ryan. A rebound romance. I worried about Jakey. But now I think it is the real deal. Totally.

So we will probably get more rumors where they might be working together. If Jakey goes to London, Reese will be there. I think Ryan is supposed to work in London, isn't he? So maybe it will all work out.

Office of nancy pelosi said...

He will be shooting just one movie in the UK (If the rumors are true) not two. Besides, didn't Reese fly to France for a weekend to be with him???

Reese's schedule is extremely light this summer, just the one voice over job AFAIK - obviously I'm saying nothing about any potential reasons for that ;-)

and yeah, Anon 8:10 AM, I agree, they're way beyond serious now.

extra said...

Reese was on the set of Nailed yesterday!:


"Yesterday on the set was crazy. I came in at 11:00 a.m. because that's when they told me to come when I left Thursday night but many people were there at 9:00 a.m. or 10. Apparently there were some issues because filming was held up most of the day. They didn't start shooting with us extra's till about 3:30 p.m. or so, then we had "lunch" at about 5:00 p.m.! Most of us were bored out of our minds but didn't have much to do except sit around and gossip...er, not that I personally gossip mind you...but you can't help what someone else insists on telling you. Well anyway, let me tell you what happened then! One of the people I was sitting next too during the filming said they saw Reece Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhall talking to each other across the street...the actors had their trailors across the street so they didn't have to hang out around caste members...oops! Did I accidentally type "caste" like the caste system in India where we extras would be like the untouchables? Well if I mispelled cast it was certainly an accident (wink! wink!). Anyway, around 11:30 p.m. Reece came into the shoot and walked right past me (escorted by one of the make-up people) and went over and stood in a corner waiting for Jake to finish his shooting. We had gone way over because of the issues I mentioned earlier and I think she was getting impatient. I was seated around a few girls in their early twenties and they were tickled pink to see Reece and kept leaning over to get a glance at her. I think she was probably just getting really impatient because once Jake finished shooting they took off out the back way together. Suzann came and visited me on the set during the big wait, she also tried to get onto the set for an extra role but they told her they didn't need anyone else. They decided to do an audience shot of the woman right in front of me! So I was in her shot just over her right shoulder. I actually had to act for real but it was good because I was bored and got to really ham it up. Some of the younger extras like to sit there and text message when they don't think anyone will see them. The girl sitting next to me was a good example, she would text message her friends that were sitting at other places in the audience and it was their way of chatting back and forth incognito. You have to watch out for some of the crew members who are assigned to catch extras doing something wrong. There is one guy I nicknamed Dwight Shroot (from the tv show "The Office") because he kind of looks like him and you can tell he loves to wield authority, even though he's low on the totem pole, but he's higher up the food chain then us extras and he likes to let us know it. When we were at the Colonial Center he loved to yell at the little girls on the set "HEY! NO RUNNING!" Anyway, my part in the shooting is over till June. Most of the extra's are done until then. I'm kind of tired of these 14 hour days anyway. Guess that's it for now boys and girls. More later."

Bette said...

You guys are awesome, seriously! I was worried, but now I'm not. You all made excellent points. I was really just worried because I know how much distance really destroyed Reese's last relationship. I get the feeling she doesn't do too well with distances. I have a feeling she'll bring the kids with her, and take off for London quite a bit.

Though Nancy, Prince of Persia is being touted as a trilogy of films. And he's being offered a possible flat rate of 40 million according to one article, so it can be assumed just like with LOTR, and some of the other trilogy films that the movies will be shot back to back. That's where I got the idea of a couple of movies being shot at once. Not that I'm saying they will do that, but it could be what they are aiming for.

Thanks anon for that link and the info o Reese in SC extra!

Jessica looks exhausted! I bet Jake and Reese stayed in SC either at her family's vacation home in Charleston or the place in TN that that realestate blog said she purchased unless he found another place after his address was posted.

She will be in DC on Sunday, glad they are managing to spend time togeher during this shoot.

Anonymous said...

"She will be in DC on Sunday"
How do you know? Is Jake going to be there too?

brothers spy said...

Bette it's funny you mention that about POP. From all I have heard about it this is what I think will happen. I think they'll film the first one this summer. Jake will be paid $10 million for it. If it is successful, then I think they will film Parts 2 and 3 back-to-back and he will be paid $15 million for each ($30 million total).

I was thinking about this the other day. Jake will be making a lot of money for his next few pictures.

He got paid $10 million for Nailed and now $10 million for Prince of Persia. If successful, he will make another $30 million for the sequels. I'm not sure how much he made for Brothers, but I assume it was in the $5 to $10 million range as well.

Anonymous said...

$55 million to $60 million for Jake. Not too bad.

I think Reese will be doing a walk in Washington, sponsored by Avon, to support battered women on Sunday.

Ryan has the kids this weekend. I had a feeling she'd come out to see him.

Wow, so much news. I have to read it all still but I thought I'd say TY for it before I start..

TY brothers spy for the Nailed script. Do you have the Brothers script to share?

I just came on line in time to see Jessica Biel's pics. She really looks beat. I don't think I've ever seen her look so tired.

I agree with this but I am still worried. Those kids are little and they have a father who is very involved. Ryan and Reese have to do things with their personal schedules to make room for the kids. Those kids absolutely come first.

Situations will come up when Jake will be expected to adjust his schedule because of Reese demanding it for the kids' sake. It probably did already. But it can get more complicated and more demanding.

I think as much as they love each other, there's probably more stuff to work out in terms of the kids and where Jake fits in.

I would hate it if he was in a position of constantly making sacrifices to accomodate Reese about the kids and putting his own life and his own needs second, taking a back seat and being too accomodating...for the kids.

He would do it, too. I think he is very kind hearted and someone could easily take advantage without even meaning to.

Without getting into the dynamics of the relationship, because it really is none of our business, I have a feeling Jake knew he was getting involved with a family, and not just Reese, when they started dating. And I'm sure it's something he didn't enter into lightly.

They're both adults, they've been together well over a year; I think they have this crazy thing figured out by now. :-)

I don't think Jake is child being taken advantage of. I don't think he waits by the phone waiting for Reese to call. That's kind of silly. I think they're both into each other. There are times when they have to be apart: for films, kid events, etc. But they always seem to make time for one another. I think if we have discovered anything, it's that.

Reese and Ryan broke up TWO YEARS AGO. I seriously doubt that too many sacrifices are made at all at this point. I think Jake, the homebody, just hangs out at her house with them. When Ryan has the kids, which is often, then they go out or go away together. I think too many people make a simple situation more complicated than it has to be. It's clear that both Jake and Ryan's girlfriend, Abbie, are a part of the kids lives (given a few photos of Abbie with the kids during the holidays). I'm sure both were "eased" into the situation. But given that they've been around for a while now, more than a year, I don't think it's an issue at all anymore.

Jake and Reese seem very serious at this point.

As Reese's fan, I would hate it if Jake take advantage of Reese to cover up something and have his offsprings. if they broke up, Reese would have a lot males to mend her heart. same as Jake, he would have a lot females and males to mend his heart. Do NOT worry. They would be OK, if only they broke up fast enough.

Looks like someone is hanging around the hater/skeptic blogs.

If you're a fan of Reese's I would think you'd be happy for her and respect her decisions.

When I saw pap pics of Ryan and eacon on Wednesday I figured he had the kids for the week and she was in SC!

I think you have two intelligent stable, really good people here. I think they are committed to one another. Neither one seems like the kind of person who would be mean or selfish to take advantage of the other. This is silly.

I seriously doubt that Jake and Reese are going to break up anytime soon if they are spending every free moment they have together.

That's not usually a sign of a troubled relationship.

I think some people have to give that up. They've been predicting this for months with no success. Jake and Reese are in love. If you were a fan of either you'd be happy for them.

I hope these two have a fun weekend together in either South Carolina and/or Washington DC.

A lot of Reese’s fans have some sort of worry, but they know enough to keep their mouth shut until some of Jake’s fans are bold enough to accuse Reese taking advantage of him. In this case, you will have to excuse me; I can’t sit and see anyone bad-mouths or devalues Reese. You have to know Reese’s fans most likely have some sense of fairness. A lot of us admire her for her good personalities, hope she will be happy forever, and do not lust after her.

I'm a fan of Reese, her work mostly, but I do admire how she handles her personal life. Frankly, I know very little of her private life because she divulges so little. And true to form, we know very little of her relationship with Jake, even less so than her marriage because I think she realises the danger of letting the media and public into a high profile relationship. I find this is something her ex doesn't get, because he's still talking about their marriage problems to this day. And then he wonders why people speculate.

I think she looks happy and I wish them the best. It's not easy having a relationship in the Hollywood environment, so good luck to them. And I hope they continue to keep their relationship as private as possible.

Wow, VerboseExtra has turned into our best source! Now I'm sad that he won't be working again until June.

Love, love, love it that Reese was on set. Further proof that we don't need to worry about these two. Or their future offsprings.

"But the walk was worth it because REESE WITHERSPOON and Jake Gyllenhaal were dining at Hominy Grill!!! Reese is my favorite actress, so I was more than starstruck. As much as I wanted to snap a photo for you guys, I resisted being obnoxious, but I did go to the bathroom mid-meal just to look at them again :)"

Saw this, thought it was cute!
