Doing Their Part

I keep reading that the restaurant business is slowing down because of the flailing U.S. economy. So it's nice to see Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon doing their part to keep them alive.

Bringing home a little something for Atticus and Coco after lunch.







And brrrr...they look cold. LA...cold...end of May? Armegaddon is upon us.

Later on it was the Phillipe Stark-designed Katsuya in Brentwood.










Wonder if they had a chance to try the Chocolat d'Orange Cocktail. Yum!



Special thanks to Stephanie for getting these so quickly. It's a working holiday weekend for her!

morning again UV, FL, and peeps,
I just posted on the old thread but couldn't finish my spell check fast enough, so here I am having fun:)


OMG. Morning again peeps...we are so totally spoiled. I can't stop looking at the wonderful happy kiss kiss WENN pics...they are fantastic pics from WENN.

Jake is definitely making her a v.v.v. happy camper. I have never seen her smile this much...and these two really are inseparable...and Reese is so cute standing up on her tippy toes to kiss and hug his gorgeousness... and I love how Jake can wrap his arms nearly all the way round her and back...this does my romantic heart so much good.
*smile* *sigh*

Bette said...

Side note: I have her hat! And I love it. I pair it with a good little LBD and I feel so hot in it.

Anyway, I knew he would be back with her once Nailed got shut down. How cute are they guys? I hope we get lots more sightings this week.

Bette said...

I just realized I said little little black dress, well it is tiny anyway.

agent_krycek said...

Absolutely love those photos, and Reese looks completely rocking in the hat and that outfit - and I've got that hat as well, love wearing it.

sass said...

Hey there Bette...I love the hat too...forgot to mention that in my last post with all my oohs and aahs...and LOOK...we get some PDA with these latest shots.
If I were to project, based on m y personal experience as a divorced mom who did date and get serious after my divorce, it's obvious that something has changed in their relationship. I believe by now her children have been informed of Jake's place in the family, i.e. future step-dad, that he now has that more intimate family position and that they know he is more than just a date for mommy...whatever they think a date really is:))... Therefore, PDA pics of mommy and Jake will not be as upsetting to her kiddos , if they should see one in a magazine. He is going to be your step-dad talks may be going on...pics of mom hugging another man will still be upsetting, but now they know that he is very important to all of them.
I admire the way Reese is proceeding with Jake and her kiddos as she makes this family work, because it is primarily her responsibility as their mom to do this in the most nontraumatic way possible. The woman has total class, had a good upbringing and it shows.
Now, I want more PDA snaps, please:lol:lol
xoxoxo

bobbyanna said...

I LOVE these pictures. Thanks SO much. I said it before. Reese looks absolutely giddy! Giggly. Besotted. Adorable. She is certainly a lot more affectionate then I ever, ever saw her before. I don't think Jake's very shy about PDAs, so it was only a matter of time before Reese succumbed. :) Love his one-armed hug!

Bette said...

Steph put up the HQ versions of the tagged wenn pics. There is one that I think we can all discuss that has "nothing." It made me raise my eyebrow.

Anna said...

Jake is rockin the chest hair lately, all out baby!

I wonder if Reese likes???

That little space of his neck, where his shirt buttons are open, *sigh*
Drives me wild, wild!!!!!!!!

Anna said...

where is this link?


Bette said...

UltraViolet said...

Woo hoo. I hoped for new pictures, and here they are. I didn't know they'd be so adorable, however!

Great post, FL. Love the chocolate martini touch. You know if this were my post, it would be just "Look: Jake. New. Pretty. Happy."

UltraViolet said...

To the Reese-loving anon from the previous post - I understand your annoyance at malicious speculation. But it's really all in fun here. If that's not a baby bump, no one is passing judgment on her shape.

And let's face it, we've been speculating so long that, to paraphrase Jon Stewart, by now we'd have to ask: "Is she having a manatee?"

Anna said...

back to business please :P

The chest hair is saying HELLO!

I wonder if Reese likes the chest hair?

chica said...

I love these, thanks so much!!

Chocalate martini? I don't know about that but I'm having a blue margarita at the moment!

Have a Happy and safe Memorial day everyone!

Bette said...

I don't know if these have been put up in the gallery yet, but there you go.

UltraViolet said...

Yes, Bette, seeing some of these pictures - let the manatee talks begin! (See last post and Jon Stewart for reference.)

Untagged pictures in the post, and at IHJ, as always. Thanks again, Stephanie!

gyllenspooner said...

Is it me or do these two seem much, much happier lately?

Things seem to be real good in gyllenspoonland at the moment.

Narcissa said...

Those pics are fantastic! Love Reese's hat and her obvious happiness. Jake looks so fine.

To the Reese-loving anon from the previous post - I understand your annoyance at malicious speculation. But it's really all in fun here.

Most women do not consider it fun to have people speculating that they are pregnant when they are not. I would imagine Reese in particular feels this way, since she sued over it.

josie said...

We are getting so spoiled! The pictures are fantastic, they are so happy! Love how she has to get on her tip toes for a kiss!

Narcissa said...

Point of information for the anonymous spoilsport at 2.08 - Reese sued a magazine to protect her professional reputation. She had work lined up and obviously wanted to reassure her producers that she wasn't about to take time out. We're just foolin'. There are boards out there which make constant despicable speculations about both Reese and Jake. They haven't sued any of them to our knowledge. Perhaps you are familiar with those boards?

Bette said...

Anon a lot of us are big fans of Reese and Jake, we love the two together, and some of us are huge huge Reese fans. And have followed her career from early on. I know I have, and this is hands down the happiest I have ever seen her. And some of us are also huge huge Jake fans, and it wouldn't be that big deal if she was. We are saying we fully support her if she is. All the speculation has been very tongue in cheek for a reason. They are obviously happy and in love, and I doubt Reese really cares what we think about her weight gain. If she's not pregnant, then she still looks damn good either way.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I have a big smile on my face after looking at these pictures, they look so happy!!!

All the pregnancy talk is just speculation that's all, nomharm and I don't think Reese will sue a fan blog over speculation.

I don't think she is, she is just happy and is eating and enjoying herself.

UltraViolet said...

Reese looks as if she has a new haircut, and it looks blonder. So count that in the no-manatee column!

gyllenspooner said...

To "Reese's fan" anon,

I don't think anyone can take the tongue-in-cheek references about her being pregnant seriously. They are obviously not meant that way at all. Anyone who has ever spent any time on this board knows that. In fact, half the time when people mention it, I don't see a bump at all. We all just play along because it's fun to speculate that they may be having a baby together given the seriousness of their relationship.

So the issue is not to point out her being fat (I don't think she is). The issue is that we want them to procreate together.

Relax. It's all play.

gyllenspooner said...

I also want to point out that I don't think she's pregnant. I do think they are engaged and will marry sooner than most people realize, but I don't think she's pregnant.

lawgoddess said...

Such fun pictures, I love Protective Jake walking in front of her, and love love love the one-armed hugs.

She looks like a doll next to him, it's cute.
Thanks, FL. Made my day.

sheba baby said...

I agree we are spoiled, they look so happy and in tune with each other, thanks for posting.

I hope Jake, Reese and everyone here have a safe and happy Memorial day and please don't forget about the reason why we have off tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

Reese is totally rocking that hat. She looks great.

Thanks UV/FL, and before it disappears Glinda, the good witch love the name.

UltraViolet said...

Guys, please don' t feed the trolls. You know things are tough for them so they are just going to be nastier than ever. Just ignore them and look at the pretty pictures.

bobbyanna said...

Damn. I see we are being subject to "oversight" by the thought police again. This is a happy place. over here, we gush and we don't even mind gushing! Buh Bye!

I agree it certainly looks like something is different in their relationship. They are more open and a lot more relaxed. And that girl has him covered like a blanket...as they used to say when I was a cute young thang.

BTW: I'll continue to have fun speculating about Gyllenbabies.
Manatees? that would mean the first 'trimester' would last 6 months or twelve months? I was always really terrible at math.:)

Bette said...

Sorry UV, I knew right after I left my comment I shouldn't have said anything.

Bobbyanna your comments through out the last few post have been great, but your last one is amazing. 6 months you say? Well then that would certainly make sense. We've been speculating for about that long right? Well that's when I first started coming around here. Though I didn't start commenting with my username until recently.

Anonymous said...

Yes I noticed the shorter blonder hair too UV! Gosh I just love these latest set of pics....and good to see that even though Jake has a longer shirt on it isn't a lumberjack :P

suvee said...

Love these pics! And Reese looks so cute in that hat...... that's the kind of hat I would buy on a whim, and then never wear. My most heartfelt thanks to IHJ and FL!

We are sooooo spoiled now..... all these lovely pics. I agree, something has most definitely changed in their relationship. Being more public, being together as much as they can, both looking insanely happy..... tells me this is a couple that has made a very important decision, if you know what I mean. :)

Just slightly OT.... I just saw Ellen DeGeneres' American Express print ad. You know, the ones that are a funny questionnaire? Anyway, one of her questions was "Stage Name"....... her answer...... "Reese Witherspoon". That cracked me up!

bobbyanna said...

Those earlier pictures look like brunch/lunch pictures, and I've discovered since I first saw them that it started to rain...so Jake is the one putting his hood up, while Reese is laughing without a care in the world. I'm sure Jake wants to get Nailed wrapped, but I also believe that this extended break is something of a gift for them. He is clear thru Thursday?

Anonymous said...

That is so cool. I'd love to see that ad. I always enjoy when Ellen interviews Reese. They have so much fun together.

bobbyanna said...

Totally OT: I just heard that Benecio Del Toro won the Best Actor Award at the closing ceremonies at Cannes, for his protrayal of Che Guevara in a bio pic directed by Steven Soderbergh.
I'm a fan of all three!:)

(Natalie Portman was on the jury chaired by Sean Penn.)

brothers spy said...

Bobbyanna,

That's cool about Benito. I hope that film gets distribution now. I had heard it was having trouble getting distribution based on the fact that it's 4.5 hours long and entirely in spanish.

OT: I just finished the script for "Against All Enemies" by James Vanderbilt. He's the guy who wrote, "Zodiac," and it's an adaptation of the Richard Clarke book (he was that counter-terrorism guy who blew the lid on the Bush White House). It's a real good script but needs some serious editing. It's 208 pages and the average script is only 120.

josie said...

sorry UV, I'll ignore them next time. I agree, something has changed between them they are definately more relaxed and happy.

I love Del Toro, what an honor, thanks for the news bobbyanna!

suvee said...

Hi anon 7:59. The AmEx ad is in the latest "Entertainment Weekly" (May 30th issue). "Real Simple" mag also usually has these ads.

Anonymous said...

Thanks suvee!

bobbyanna said...

Brothers spy, I own Richard Clarke's book and would kill to read that script!!!! (kidding.)
Yeah, the Soderbergh movie is a tad long...:) Guess they will have to do some editing :)

In Motorcycle Diaries, Gael Garcia Bernal portrayed Che's early life and the things that affected his political consciousness.

Benecio's film deals with the Cuban Revolution and then Che's failed attempt to export the revolution to Bolivia.

Anonymous said...

What strikes me about all these new pictures is that in the past, they seemed restrained in public, and while they were affectionate, they were "chaste." These are much more relaxed and frankly, very sexy. At least, I'm getting heat from them.

UltraViolet said...

Okay, kids, I'm back home. I was out at a BBQ when the troll(s) went on the attack. No need to apologize suvee or Bette. Your responses were restrained. I deleted them anyway, because once the troll posts were deleted, they make no sense.

I do object to the posts that use insulting or vulgar language against the trolls or other sites or people who frequent other sites. That isn't allowed, no matter whom it's coming from.

I understand the impulse, believe me. And if FL and I are not around to get rid of the posts, I don't mind people responding. Just don't resort to insults and profanity. It's unpleasant to read, no matter who is the target.

I did like glinda the good witch's response, I have to say :)

UltraViolet said...

I'm a fan of all three!

Me, too, Bobbyanna! And I loved The Motorcycle Diaries, too. I think the Soderbergh opus is actually two movies, totaling 4.5 hours. Which will make no difference to audiences - it's still daunting.

To continue the three theme, a Jake and Reese sighting from today, I think, though it matches their brunch spot from last weekend:

Brunch today was at the super cool 3 Square Café + Bakery in hip and artsy Abbot Kinney... And what do you know? We bumped into Jake Gyllenhaal & Reese Witherspoon!

Anonymous said...

Hey UV, do you think there could be a favorite J&R picture poll post? There have been some great sets (Farmers market, recent Santa Monica shopping, these hat shots, etc).

Anonymous said...

I'd hate to have to chose which set of pictures is the most adorable!

What I would love to see is a list of all the restaurants in L.A. and NYC that these two have frequented over the past two years. I especially liked the look of a couple of them from this last NYC visit of J&R.

gyllenspooner said...

That sighting seems to be from today.

PIZZERIA MOZZA: March 12th, lunchtime, a "gaggle of celebs": Jamie Lee Curtis wearing all blacks and greys and her signature spunky haircut, and then cute couple Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon were sitting with some friends. "JG was scruffy and terribly attractive, much more so in person than I expected, and stared at RW adoringly, snapping a few candids of her throughout the lunch with his digital camera." Wethinks he's an investor

sass said...

Good night peeps. I'm glad I missed the trolls.
I'll see ya tomorrow. There were so many lovely pics this weekend; we are blessed:)
Congratulations, to one of my favorite actors in the universe, Benicio Del Toro, for winning the Best actor award at Cannes.
Love to all, rest well:)
xoxoxo

I saw the latest Dark Knight trailer last night, when I went to see Indiana Jones and The Crystal Skull.
I was able to divorce Heath's having left us and my sadness at his having left us here, from his Joker characterization. Heath is one hella great actor. I can't wait to see him in the TDK. I miss him so much...

Good morning! Glad I missed the trolls too!

Love these pictures, especially the WENN pictures, they are too cute! It looks like 3 square casfe is becoming their favorite place to brunch, they were there last week too!

Thanks for the link to the jogging pics anon., I see he is running with a trainer, getting ready fo POP. The caption says jogging from SM to Brentwood, we may be getting more pics!

Happy Memorial Day everyone.

suvee said...

"No need to apologize suvee or Bette. Your responses were restrained."

As much as I would like to take credit for being restrained and ladylike....... it wasn't me in this particular case (was it josie, maybe?). Tempting though it may be sometimes, I don't believe in feeding the trolls. :)

Anonymous said...

I've read somewhere that women reach the absolute peak of their sex drive in their early to mid thirties, while men reach their's in their mid to late twenties. So, from an age perspective, these two are absolutely right together.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for these new pictures! Wow! Jake and that trainer are seriously running! But that trainer is too thin! I love Jake's body. I hope he doesn't get that thin. Even if he does tend to lose weight if he is getting ready for a part in a movie. following Jake makes me more conscious of the physical stuff actors have to go thru to get into character.

Bette said...

I know people talk about the exorbitant amounts actors make for standing in front of a camera. But you have to think of all the work that goes in to it, preparation before hand like bulking up or dropping weight quickly which can have lasting effects on your body. And then 17 hour days for sometimes six days a week? Yeah no fun. I've worked as an extra on a few film sets, and we did sometimes hours and hours of retakes of one scene. It's ridiculously tedious. Not to mention sometimes you have to relocate your whole life for three, four or five months, or in the case of LOTR and some other trilogies, a year and a half to a new location and be away from family and friends? Yikes.

extra said...

LOL, I was going to mention that the trqiner looks too thin too!! Jake does look great, getting into shape for Prince of Persia.

Thanks for that sighting UV, they must like that place!

I will be seeng the new Indiana Jones movie today, I can't wait.

I hope everyone has a great Memorial day.

agent_krycek said...

Yes, Mr Trainer Man, please note, we want a nice, bulky, ripped Dastan, not a skinny Dastan who looks like he needs a good feed.

sallykirkland said...

bette, all that you say is true. The other thing to think of, is, investors put millions of dollars into a film, and expect to reap comparable rewards of millions of dollars in profits from theatres, from the DVD sales, the cable and network sales, etc.

They base their advertising, and the hook they use to sell a movie, on the actors who are in it. So it seems appropriate to me,that the actors should share in the rewards.

I guess I'm using the old Reggie Jackson argument. I think Reggie was one of the very first sports figures who insisted on getting a percentage of the gate from the Yankees, bcz he argued successfully, that his participation generated more ticket sales for the team, and media interest, then if he weren't playing.

Hope everyone has a lovely Memorial Day! I do love all these pictures. How can one man be so sexy in a simple grey top!

Monica said...

Which couple would you like to spend Memorial Day weekend with?
Reese & Jake
Brad & Angelina
Tim & Faith
Pete & Ashlee

lawgoddess said...

Diving into the shallow end of the pool here, but I keep looking at those Jeese pictures where she is wearing the hat. The last couple , it looks like she is leaning into him and he is supporting her weight.

I am not ordinarily a fan of tiny women ( sheer jealousy!) but I am finding the fact that he is so much bigger and stronger than she is a real turn-on.

I imagine they do some interesting things in bed, with his obvious arm strength.

I'll shut up now. :)

Anna said...

I guess, I am not the only one who has naughty thoughts....

Anonymous said...

Reese wanted to hide by turning her back to the cameras. Jake indented to help her. “Unfortunately”, they got caught up in the act and heated up themselves, turning the hiding to cuddling and kissing. They revealed sexual and emotional tensions.

Anna said...

interesting thought

which picture do you mean?

Anonymous said...

J&R waiting for their car,Outside Katsuya Restaurant In Brentwood

Anna said...

sexual and emotional tensions??


The heat, ahem.. ahem.. you know is probably going really well. The fire is probably really really hot, if you know what I mean

are you saying there are relationship problems? or passionate ?

passionate

I think she means that there is so much sexual energy between them that they are passionate even when they don't mean to be.

Right on, I am very interested in their body language

Bette said...

Sally exactly! I mean it's pretty ridiculous what they get paid because there are some people who put in 17 hour days, and have to travel and they don't make millions. But it's like the highest paid actors and actresses do bust their ass. Not to mention they essentially give up their privacy to the public because of the interest. It doesn't sound that appealing to me. I'd rather earn millions some other way, and have the paparazzi stay out of my life.

Keeping it PG-13 here, does anybody else think Jake is channeling a little Christian Bale in that third to last photo. I can kind of see it. Maybe it's only because in a lot of candids of Bale I see him with his mouth kind of slightly open looking to the side.

As for the other stuff, I think I agree. They probably do have an interesting time.

They seem to be generating a lot more sexual heat then they did at first.

I just think that at first they were getting use to each other. Now they see one another as "theirs." lol.

bobbyanna said...

Happy Memorial Day, all! (waves to Gyllenbabblers!)

I just went over to the US Poll and I have to admit. Since Brad and Angie are in the south of France at some very posh villa, I really thought about going there...until I thought about all those kids, with two more due any minute...I love kids...but still...

So I went with Jake and Reese bcz I think they would be fun and we could have some interesting conversations, too.

The only one who could entice me away from Jake and Reese would be if George Clooney invited me to the villa on Lake Como in Italy.
I've been to Lake Como, and would love to go back there, but this time in a villa, which I did not do the other time I was there, not being a villa kind of girl...

Well I am a villa kind of girl, just without a villa at this particular time...

I think Jake is incredibly sexy...in a simple grey shirt...or whatever, and I love the way he "handles" Reese. I think she enjoys it too(!)

They do seem a lot freer. I think it's partly bcz the relationship is at another level, but also they have to be tired of always looking over their shoulder, especially when they are in a "certain mood."

If I allow myself to speculate about what these two might do behind closed doors, I will end up in the ER! :):)
