Jake and Reese in Charleston



Sunday finds Reese doing her part in Washington, D.C. as part of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

Whether she's walking or supporting the walkers, one thing is for certain, she'll need a healthy dose of good old southern cooking before she gets there. And lucky for us, Kath was at the Hominy Grill in Charleston when Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon showed up today. Nothing says 'I'm ready to walk a marathon route' like a big plate of shrimp and grits.






On a more serious note, I urge you all to support the Avon Breast Cancer Walk in any way you can. I have two girlfriends I've had since I was a wee little filament, both developed aggressive breast cancer while still in their 30s, neither had a history of breast cancer in their families. Both will be walking in the Avon Breast Cancer Walk when it comes to my city. And I am grateful they are here to be able to do it.

Hi there FL and UV,

I knew I would be rewarded if I made a late night stop. TY:) It's delightful to read how happy the blogger's friends are to see Jake and Reese, how much they like and admire Reese and how cute Jake and Reese look together.

I wish I could've been there;). I would have made at least 290374297 trips here and there in the restaurant to have a look at the happy couple.

TY again:)

sass said...

So Sorry:)
I meant how happy the blogger was to see Jake and Reese, how happy their friends were for them and how much they like Jake and Reese apart and as a couple. I'll leave the other post up:)

I love this, I honestly think it's really beautiful. You did a good job throwing this post together. And like I pointed out in the last post, it really is so cute to hear about that. I probably would have freaked out, and attempted to take some camera phone pics without flash.

agent_krycek said...

Bless them, every single second they can spend together - they do :D

I'm really pleased Reese is doing this walk, I've done the Moon Walk in the UK for the same cause, brilliant thing to do, and met some of the best people I know doing it. Lost a dear friend to Breast Cancer many years ago and really appreciate it when someone does something like this. Reese and Jake - both are good people.

shondra said...

I was right, Jake and Reese did go to Charleston, what a cute sighting, thanks!

I admire Reese for being involved in the walk, I hope that any one here that lives in the DC area are participating in some way.

bobbyanna said...

Squeee!!! Charleston! Thanks FL...you're still a great "little filament!" ;)

I was at the Avon Foundation site and apparently Reese will do some walking, but she's also doing tons of other stuff plus participating in closing ceremonies. Looks like a huge task, and an extremely busy day.

Breast cancer took my dearest friend in 1998. I still miss her. In my cousins' family,a grandmother,her five daughters,and 3 grandaughters died of breast cancer!

Six months ago, ten years after her diagnosis,I lost another very good friend to breast cancer.
It is deadly!

Post menopausal women are a very vulnerable group and often one who are likely to ignore preventive exams. This friend's mamogram didn't catch it, but self exam did!

chica said...

I lost an Aunt to cancer 15 years ago, my family and I still miss her. The NY Avon walk wil take place in Oct. and i already signed up for the walk.

And I echo your squeee bobbyanna!
I knew she was in SC, probably the whole week.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I love this sighting! And one of the commenters on the blog said that she saw Jake walking down the street in Charleston once, no date given so I don't know if it was recent. I have a feeling he has spent time in Charleston with Reese and her famly plenty of times already.

Good luck to Reese and all the other participants in the Avon walk in DC todsy.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the sighting I thought she would go to SC.

I am also glad Reese is doing the Avon walk, my mother had breast cancer and died almost 5yrs to the day of first being diagnosed, 16yrs ago, I miss her more every day.

FluorescentLamp said...

And one of the commenters on the blog said that she saw Jake walking down the street in Charleston once, no date given so I don't know if it was recent.

Oh I was all excited about that spotting as well...until I checked out her blog and realized she's from Manhattan. :-D

Monica said...

Thank you for the news!

How wonderful to know that Reese is am campaign against breast cancer.
My mother had breast cancer.

suvee said...

It is sobering to see how many of us have been touched by breast cancer. I have 2 very good friends who are (luckily) breast cancer survivors...... and like bobbyanna's friend, one of my friend's mammogram didn't catch it, her self exam did! Unfortunately, I also had 2 co-workers that weren't so lucky......

Hopefully Reese's association with the Avon Walk will help spread the word.... and maybe save a few lives.

Thanks for this post, FL!

I want to add, how cool would it be if Jake showed up at the the walk to support Reese? I know they've been going solo to these charity events, but we all know Jake was in New York when Reese spoke at the UN. It wouldn't be a big deal for him to be there for her for this too.

To the anon I've deleted twice already - not sure if you get the tone of today's blog post and the comments therein, so why don't you take a moment, read and absorb before you start in with your attacks on Reese. Thanks and have a great Sunday.

Anonymous said...

The blog you discovered from the "foodie" who spotted them in Charleston had a person post with some nasty comment about Reese. Actually, they attacked people on the blog who happen to like Reese.It's probably the same person.

FluorescentLamp said...

No doubt it is, 1.03. :(

I remember this happened when we linked to the blogger that spotted Jake and Reese out to dinner at Craft in LA.

A rhetorical question that needs no response, but you have to wonder why this bothers so many people on such a disturbing level that they will insult and accuse a blogger they don't know of making up these sightings. Sad.

Jake and Reese sighting from Saturday, shopping at rhe Banana Republic:

Bette said...

Damn no Jake! She looks really cute though.

bobbyanna said...

OK. Agent K? Are you here??? I just looked at the pics of Reese at the Avon walk. She is all smiley and relaxed (!) and there is this ONE picture of her; a full shot of her walking? And I am not going to say not one single word. Not one. Not even a half of a syllable of a single word.

FluorescentLamp said...

Must be the angle.

Must be leftover bloat from yesterday's lunch.

Must be the heat.

Must be...gee her belly looks more expansive than it did last week when she was leaving the gym, doesn't it?

bobbyanna said...

OK, my "little filament(!)" It's not just tummy "bloat" it's her boobs and her thighs, too. Wider hips?
If you check out the Farmer's Market pics and one other set since, then these, I'd say...well... you know, people do gain weight when they go on vacation. And I know certain times of the month when girls "retain water". But usually hips and thighs aren't part of that equation. Usually. Ohwell. I'm not sayin' nuthin'.

Jake and Reese sighting on Saturday in Charleston shopping together.

From Perez Hilton.

gyllenspooner said...

I didn't realize that someone else had posted the same information. Feel free to erase.

Bette said...

Reese not with what we all won't say, but she sued Star magazine because they insinuated she was:

Just kind of as comparison.

sheba baby said...

I love all the sightings, thanks!

I didn't expect to see Jake at the walk in DC, too much of a distraction and plus doesn't he have to film at the Stae House in Columbia tomorrow?

Reese does look happy and healthy in those pics. She has never really lost that tummy ever since the birth of Deacon so IMO, no.

Someone in the comments section on Perez mentioned that they were shopping for pots and pans as well.

Anonymous said...

Reese looks really adorable. I'm glad she'll be doing some walking today.

I'm a little worried for this person who can't seem to control themselves whenever Reese is seen doing something good/positive. I mean to be so irked that people are reporting her doing good or that the public likes her. It's disturbing. And to post on this blog when they know it's going to be deleted. Why bother?

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for the "reality check" bette and sheba baby! Dang! That one pic of her in the black bathing suit brought back nightmares for me!!! Poor little thing looked SO uncomfortable!

Anonymous said...

A quote from someone on Perez.

"they ate brunch at Hominy Grill Saturday morning…they were quite cozy and smooching at their table…everyone in the restaurant was pretty starstruck, yet everyone left them alone."

hmmmmmm said...

From the comments o Perez:

#21 - Rache says – reply to this


she has a house in the charleston area, i know where but im not going to say, its not just a vaca

#22 - x says – reply to this


They were shopping for pots and pans at Le Cruiset...

Anonymous said...

It's not strange Jake would want to look at cooking things. He cooks!

Anonymous said...

So Reese owns 3 houses? Well you know you're well off when you own 3 houses.

Anonymous said...

If you think Reese is pregnant, why don't you just say it? Or are you afraid she will sue?

FluorescentLamp said...

Who's she gonna sue? Everyone who makes that comment? Blogger? :-/

I guess if you don't understand the *wink wink* nature of the comments. . .

gyllenspooner said...

Everyone knows how much I love to play the wink wink game. lol. But there is an innocent explanation regarding the pots and pans. It's possible that Jake finally got a house back in Columbia and it didn't come with pots and pans.

Anyway, I'm glad they seemed to enjoy their weekend together.

gyllenspooner said...

One more thing about her owning a house in Charleston. I still don't think she does. Her parents definitely have a summer house there though.

Remember that Ryan proposed to Reese in Charleston and they were even married there. In one interview she said that she had been going there for years.

The rumor of her owning a house began last year when a gossip columnist said that she had bought a house and planned to enroll her kids in school there.

Another blogger account of R&J in Charleston.

http://thegeeclan.blogspot.com/2008/05/myron-kathy_04.html

"We are in Charleston, S. Carolina for a few days. Just arrived this aftenoon. Having lots of fun. We are staying at The Planter's Inn in the historical downtown district. Some interesting tidbit of information is that we are staying in a suite here at the inn and we were told by our bellhop that Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal stayed in this same suite last night. Don't know how long they were here but they checked out this morning. Imagine that....we are sleeping in the same bed and using the same bathroom that Reese and Jake used this morning. If only the walls could talk!!!! What would they say?"

UltraViolet said...

You beat me to it, anon!

My mind is ful of inappropriate thoughts on the idea of sleeping in the same bed that Jake (and Reese) slept in the previous night.

Forget about the walls talking - wht about the mattress?

Okay, I'll stop there.

gyllenspooner said...

www.plantersinn.com

It looks real nice and elegant.

UltraViolet said...

From USAToday, Reese Witherspoon teaches her kids to give with Avon work:

Reese Witherspoon is all set for a low-key Mother's Day this weekend.
She'll be lunching with her mom, Betty Reese, and kids, Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4. But as a paparazzi target, the Oscar winner knows she can't count on a disruption-free holiday, even though she's careful not to reveal a single specific detail about their plans — not even the state.


...

Although she wouldn't discuss supposed beau Jake Gyllenhaal or ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, Witherspoon gushed about her Four Christmases co-star Vince Vaughn.

"He's great! He's so funny," she says.

bobbyanna said...

I cannot imagine sleeping in the same bed! I just can't. I feel wooozy thinking about it.

I went to the site. Planter's Inn is pretty famous. Hung out and checked on the suites. O.M.G. The place is gorgeous. Bet they have great food, too. It just looks like the kind of place where they know what they're doing. (sigh!)

"I guess if you don't understand the *wink wink* nature of the comments..."

Du,uhh! After all's said and done, I think only an elephant might gestate longer! ;) ;) ;)

lawgoddess said...

I am happy that Jake and Reese re getting some time together.

Wonder if he'll be around on Mother's Day to help the kids bring her breakfast in bed. :)

I have been thinking more about POP, and have decided it would be kind of cool. And Deacon and Ava would like it.

UltraViolet said...

Semi spoilerish post on IMDb:

I have a question...on the day where the kids where shooting the scene where they sing the song with Jake...I had a few parents tell me they would send me a few pictures of when Jake came outside and took a few pics with all our kids...I haven't received any as of yet ....Did anyone get a good picture of all the kids ...or ????

Aww - how cute! It would be fun to see some of those pictures.

UltraViolet said...

A little more from Kath eats:

Regarding the Reese + Jake sighting: I didn’t get to look at them long enough to get any details on their outfits or lunches. But they were sharing a dessert when I went to the bathroom! It appeared to be the Coconut Cake. Something white and fluffy.

Mmm - sounds yummy!

And from JustJared:

P.S. Reese was spotted visited boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of his new movie, Nailed, in Columbia, SC, on Friday. The couple walked hand-in-hand laughing and playfully teasing each other.

agent_krycek said...

I, personally, love the 'wink wink' nature of the comments, and yes, I'm still winking (which if I not careful can be mistyped as a very British slang word for a description of something completely different! )

I'm very excited by PoP, and if it is filmed partly in the UK that means we might get a chance at a Reese visit, and Jake, I know loads of shops in London that do fabulous kitchenwear, and I'm more then happy to be an unpaid (or paid if you want) guide :D

josie said...

Love all the sightings over the weekend!!! I knew she would stop by to see him on set.

sheba baby said...

Planters Inn is gorgeous!!!

The walkers in DC raised 8.1 million dollars!!

I say no, just poor posture but you can understand the speculation, in other pics, it's just the usual tuumy bump. Reese at the Avon walk yesterday:

Aww he WAS in D.C.

From the dreaded PerezHilton

They sure get around!

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal were spotted having a romantical dinner together at Zaytinya in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

The day before, the couple were in Charleston, S.C.


Jake Reese sighting in D.C.

Monica said...

Thank You!
He was the DC with it the same way he did in NY.

Anonymous said...

Awwww!

bobbyanna said...

Wow! Zaytinya is a Greek restaurant and May 4th was Greek Easter observance. I am really surpirsed he went with her. Just bcz it sounded like she was going to be really busy doing her Avon thing. Bet he wandered around and hung out at the Walk and no one even knew! Or not! Maybe he went to Capitol Hill to soaked up some atmosphere for his role as a Congressman. Want could be more "method?" :) :)

bobbyanna said...

Oops! that's "WHAT could be more methond?" :) :)

agent_krycek said...

Flaming heck, those two certainly rack up the miles to spend as much time as possible with each other - bless!

chica said...

So he did go to DC!!! I wonder how much time off he and Jessica have from filming? I think she still is in NY and if they are filming today, perhaps they were told that they weren't needed.

sheba baby said...

Yeah, I know it's that idiot Lainey, and she gets it wroong about Jake filming in DC and I had to laugh at her getting on others regarding the "baby bump" she was speculating too!:


http://www.laineygossip.com/Reese_Witherspoon_stirs_baby_bump_talk_in_Washington_at_Avon_Walk_for_Breast_Cancer.aspx

She gives a good history of Reese's baby bump.

PS: A few google alerts regarding the bump dropped in my mail box, including splashonline.

There have been a few more confirmations of Jake and Reese in DC yesterday.

UltraViolet said...

Can you post the other sightings, Sheba? Work is peskily demanding that I, um, work, this morning.

Thanks for the Lainey tidbit even if it is Lainey.

sheba baby said...

Sorry, UV, I should have said comments from Perez:

17 - Alison Hall Chandler says – reply to this


"I was there with my husband, sister, brother in law, and a group of friends and I totally saw them! We were sitting on the second level. First I thought…that guy looks a lot like Jake Gyllenhaal…and then I was like, that is Jake Gyllenhaal! … and Reese Witherspoon! What are they doing in D.C.? I think I heard she was doing the breast cancer walk. That's nice. They were just leaving though. Jake G. is very cute but Reese Witherspoon is positively luminescent"

If I come across anymore independent from this, I'll post it!

Anonymous said...

"...Reese Witherspoon is positively luminescent!" Uh, Alison? Jake has that effect. I love how she kind of downplays Jake's looks, (cute?) her being with her husband and her brother-in-law, etc., but Jake was the first thing she spotted.."that guy looks a lot like Jake Gyllenhaal..." Lady you are SO busted! :)

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, sheba. I hope there are some non-Perez sightings, but that one was a good one!

LOL!!! I agree anon. Jake must be so proud of Reese.

Sorry I missed them yesterday. I wonder if they are still in DC or he went back to SC for filming and her back to L.A., if he did have to go back to SC then the man is definately beyond smitten!!

Maybe Reese is scheduled to appear at that Costume Institute Gala hosted by Clooney in NYC? Maybe with a DATE? Maybe?????
