Finally!

After what seemed like months of walking the streets of Santa Monica in search of a yoga studio that wouldn't turn them away, Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon finally got lucky. Sure, they had to go the private class route, but at least they'll be off the streets now.






FYI: That is not the recommended way to carry bottled water. Lucky bottle, though!

But it's great to see Jake again after so long: the sweat, the smirk, the arms, the thighs, the socks and the sandals...




ETA: Link to Jake's PSA for New Eyes for the Needy, in case anyone missed it.

don't beat Jake up to bad over the socks and slides :P

He is just going to work out and exercise, like a normal guy

I am sure during Yoga you take off your shoes, he is just being comfortable

UltraViolet said...

We have to have a little fun with the guy! And no one can pull that look off, even Jake!

Twitter said...

His hair is getting longer
Kind of turns me off, I am not sure yet what to make of the long hair

He looks tired and stressed, hopefully that yoga helped.

He has worked really hard all summer on Nailed, finally now getting a break

JoeAnn said...

Woah! Jake's arms and chest are looking nicely filled out. The prince takes shape. Nice to see pics of him again.

UltraViolet said...

Not really sure how you can make a fair judgment on the hair since it's all sweaty and under a baseball cap. But I'm pretty sure you're going to have to get used to it, since it's going to be longer for PoP, it seems.

He doesn't look stressed at all to me.

UltraViolet said...

ITA, joeann. Those arms are a work of art.

FluorescentLamp said...

I think it's probably for PoP, and not a fashion statement, so not to worry.

How did you feel about his Rendition hair? Which was longer than in these pics.

Twitter said...

I need to adjust to the hair :P
Doesn't mean I don't love the G any less

I liked the JarHead shaved look best of all. When his head was shaved, his face structure and eyes really stood out, I liked seeing the shape of his face.

Narcissa said...

Hummm...... His shoulders look huge, but his face looks rather drawn. Just one pic I know.....

Bette said...

I'm just glad to see pics of them again. I was starting to think Nailed would never finish, and we wouldn't see any pics of them together before PoP started filming.

brothers spy said...

lol You guys are cracking me up about Jake and the socks.

You guys should forgive him though. After all, he worked 110 hours last week. He flew back to LA on Wednesday or Thursday, only to fly back to SC on Friday to work on Saturday, and then flew back to LA again on Saturday night.

I think we should give him a break.

I think the long hair is for POP. The character has long hair.

chica said...

So they finally found a yoga class, they both look great but Jake looks a little tired.

Hope he gets a nice break before Pop starts, i think that brothers spy said that he has one more scene to film next week in DC.

extra said...

I think the date of the pics are off, they were posted late last night, 6/14. I doubt that the agency was in a rush to post the same day they were taken, they would have posted this morning.

Most likely they were taken on Friday when Reese returned from Japan, he was already back in L.A. after filming ended 4am tuesday according to brothers spy.

He may have left SC later on on tuesday, or wednesday and was in L.A. on Friday when Reese returned and left later for the saturaday filming.

His hair looks fine to me from what i can see of i, they both look great, thanks for posting!

lawgoddess said...

A Jake and Reese sighting! I am happy.:)

His body looks terrific!I embiggened the pix, and his arms look fabulous.

My view on longer hair- more to run your fingers through.:)

When I saw the "just say no", I thought it meant "say no to shaving your legs." Which, to his credit, he didn't.:)

Nice to see them doing an ordinary "young couple in love" thing.

Thanks for posting these.

brothers spy said...

FINAL NAILED UPDATE

It turns out Jake WAS FINISHED after all on Tuesday night.

Just as I originally suspected, Jake wasn't needed for the re-shoot yesterday. Also, he won't be needed for the shoot in DC.

He left for LA on Tuesday night. Apparently he left during a violent thunderstorm which worried a lot of the people there (any of you watch La Bamba?). But he made it okay.

I'm beginning to think I know more about these scenes than my source, lol. She only knows what scenes they are about to film and she tells me what happens AFTER THE FACT.

She assumed Jake would be needed for the re-shoot yesterday because he was in the scene. But actually they only reshot Jessica's speech. BTW, in case you're keeping track, they re-shot TWO of Jessica's scenes from last weekend. I wonder why. Anyway, that was why I suspected that Jake wasn't needed.

I had heard that she needed to re-shoot a scene where she delivered a speech from the weekend before already. Knowing what scene they were filming, and knowing that it required another speech from her, I assumed that was what they were re-shooting as well. Having read the script, I knew Jake wasn't in that part of the scene, having already dramatically walked out.

But she finally confirmed that Jake is officially finished with filming "Nailed." All the scenes left to film do not require him.

She also said that she heard Jake will be leaving for Morocco very soon. Maybe as early as the week after next, but she's not sure.

suvee said...

He looks so unbelievably hot in these pics that I'm tempted to say it was worth the wait to see him again. His body looks just perfect IMO. He looks so good in fact, that I can ignore one of my personal guy fashion faux pas...... socks and sandals. Jake baby, you can almost pull that look off!

Thanks to IHJ and UV for this Sunday treat.
Great post!

brothers spy. said...

Extra is right, Jake was in LA already on Friday. He's been back in LA since late Tuesday night/very early Wednesday AM.

Reese returned from Japan on either Thursday or early Friday.

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for these! My favorite adorable couple looking very adorable!

"How did you feel about his Rendition hair? Which was longer than in these pics."

FL thanks for reminding me!!! I remember when we were first getting pictures from the set,I was very anxious, then he did the talk show/interview circuit for Zodiac and I started getting used to it. When I actually saw Douglas Freeman in the movie I was in LOVE...with a capital U.S.T. ;)

Twitter said...

Jakes hairy legs are more then I can handle in one weekend!

And the arm veins! the slightly sweaty look!
The hairy arms..
Ok I can go on and on

That body just delicious!

love how Reese is looking at him here *sigh*

Jake is increasingly sexy and hot!
I love it all the photos!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, Gyllenbabble!

Love seeing them doing couply things togehter, thanks for the post and pics (i forgive him for the flip flops and socks!)

Happy Fathers Day!!

sass said...

Morning UV, FL and everyone,
So glad I stopped by this Sunday Morning for my treat. TYTYTY
Jake looks so da*ned HOT. He's going to be delicious in the POP.

Remember when Jake Watch did an entire post about the Jake shoe/socks combo. I thought I'd never laugh that hard ever again...but this did post did it:)
xoxoxo

Lemon said...

Ooh la la! Jake gets better and better with time and age. Plus he is the perfect amount of hairy. I'm sure a hairy Prince of Persia would be acceptable. We can overlook wee details like that =]

agent_krycek said...

My, he's bulking up nicely, and yoga for flexibility *insert some rabid fangirl gibberish about lucky Reese*

Fab news about Brothers, thanks Monica, looks like it's getting good results from the test screenings, I'm very excited to see this, especially as I've seen the original.

chica said...

Thanks for the news about brothers monica, i can't wait to see this movie.

And yes he is bulking up quite nicely!

bobbyanna said...

The original Brothers was on cable last night and I watched it! I could actually "see" Jake, Natalie and Toby! (in my imagination.) I think all three of them, plus Sheridan, might generate some awards season chatter! Delighted it is well received! I think they may very well screen it in Toronto!

bobbyanna said...

Sorry to spam!!! How cool, that someone working at Kinko's actually got to see the test screening rating cards with their comments! They're probably testing it in other places, too! YAY!

brothers spy said...

bobbyanna,

I think it may premiere in Toronto as well.

I'm hoping for that. It's going to need some momentum before it's December release date given the competition it's up against.

I'm glad early audiences like it.

agent_krycek said...

I could actually "see" Jake, Natalie and Toby!

I've never had a problem fitting all three of them into the roles since seeing the original, especially Jake and Toby who do bear a slight resemblance to the actors in the original.

Hoping there might be a detailed review on AICN soon.

FluorescentLamp said...

And yet every time I think about 2008 Brothers, I see Jake, Toby and Connie Neilsen. My mind's eye just won't envision Natalie in that role. Oh well.

So about Toronto. He'll be in the middle of filming PoP at that time. Will Disney let him out for a few days to attend TIFF?

suvee said...

I was rushing out of the house this morning and didn't take time to compliment UV on some of her laugh out loud lines in this post.

Just as the Marine Corps has their signature slogan...... "the few, the proud, the Marines"........ I think UV has come up with an appropriate one for Jake.

Jake Gyllenhaal: the smirk, the arms, the thighs. :)

Twitter said...

X17 had to be rude asshats and proclaim are Jake and Reese friends or a couple?

Come on! wtf! Real cute X17

Duh! hasn't that J& R friends topic been beaten over and over again, I guess they are too dumb for anything new and original!

gabbana said...

Jake looks sexy.....but please no more socks/sandals combination!!!!

Thanks for the "Brothers" info, Monica!
Awards season usually starts in September with Venice/Toronto. And it needs good critics. The bad buzz killed "Rendition" awards chances.

Hopefully we will get the chance seeing him at one of the film festivals.

shondra said...

They did that tag IMO so it can get more hits on google. All the other blogs say boyfriend, and if you notice the rest of the blurb say "they remind them of that perfect HS couple that eventually get married".

So silly.
Love the pics btw!!

Anonymous said...

I don't think X17 meant it that way you described it twitter. Because they go on to call Jake and Reese the "cutest couple in Hollywood" and then write that they are "annoyingly perfect like those couples from high school that got married right after graduation." Then finally they ask, "do we hear wedding bells for these two?"

They asked if Jake and Reese were lovers or work-out buddies. I think the implication is that these two do everything together.

Overall, I think they were paying them a compliment.

Twitter said...

she adores him

its very obvious, socks slides and all :p

she is looking at him like, I love this sexy dork!

shondra said...

I just went back and they did add after wedding bells or just close friends?

I still say they did it for hits, just posting the pics and saying how cute ain't going to get the same attention.

This site has been pushing them to get married since Nov. if I remember correctly.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I remember the story last month about them looking for a yoga class, he looks realy buff here.

I also remember the blog sighting of them at a gymnastics class and Reese doing a handstand!

We are reall getting spoiled with these pics, thanks for posting!

Twitter said...

Reese used to be a cheerleader


Jakes new long hair and unshaven look is starting to arouse my interest now

I keep fixating on his gorgeous hair legs

gabbana said...

@Twitter - if you are getting angry with this harmless x17 entry I would strongly recommend you to not reading the comments that will pop up during the next hours....

Jake is slowly getting his PoP body....I am sure he will be a wonderful Dastan and impress the people who remain sceptical about his casting...

bobbyanna said...

FL, TIFF starts the Thursday after Labor Day running for ten days. So maybe he will be finished with PoP by then. Venice usually begins the last week of August,...I think.

OMG! His shoulders are SO broad! I really need to get a grip on my "hair issues! ;)...I will simply say, based purely on the hotness of Jake, I think Dastan is definitely passed puberty! ;)

I bet when it is time to market PoP they will reach way beyond the traditional Film Festival screenings and show trailers and stuff at other types of conventions and promotional gatherings! OMG. Jake will become a POP action figure!

sag actor said...

Glad to hear that the 1st screening of Brothers was positive, i loved the original.

Looks like Jake is done with Nailed and is getting ready for Pop, he looks like he is getting in shape and props for him for going to yoga class with his GF, I'm really bad with stuff like that!

I bet that Jake makes an appearence at the Comic con next year to promote Pop.

sass said...

Afternoon y'all...have to check in before I leave...WE channel is showing one of my favorite Reese movies...long time fan that am...I think she was 14-15 y/o... The Man In The Moon, also starring Sam Waterston.


I love pictures of Reese and Jake and one or the other of them looks like they are the possessor of some secret joy walking along side each other...like this pic.

Reese smitten.


Jake Reese secret happiness sweet

He does look like he has circles under his eyes, but he has a big life now; he has work, Reese and her kiddos, travel added to all his regular fun things he loves to do. Whew.:)

Can't wait for Brothers...too much of a drought since Jake's last movie.

wonder why he at that Studio??
maybe for POP

nice to see he spared us more socks and slides :P

looks like Jakes mom ??
http://www.iheartjakemedia.com/displayimage.php?album=1225&pos=1

sass said...

Dont't mean to spam but is the older man Jim Sheridan?

sass said...

I thought that was Jake's mom... and that gentleman does look a lot like Sheridan but I can't be sure. This is a good Sunday:)(

Twitter said...

I wonder what they are doing there at the Studio

josie said...

Yes sass, that looks like Jim Sheridan and Jake's mom! What a treat this weekend, J&R pics, the positive screening for brothers, Sheridan and Mama G and he is finished filming Nailed!!


PS:How is the temp. i L.A.? I ask because Jake is wearing very fall like clothes except for the flip flops as is his PA, and the pics of Reese posted the same day, she is wearing a springy type dress but is wearing a hoodie zipped up!

brothers spy said...

Someone at IHJ said that it may be a first viewing of Brothers.

One of the women is his mother and the older man looks like Jim Sheridan.

Twitter said...

ummmmmm.... my Jake eye and studying says
looking at the new pictures

Jake has hair on his toes

fascinating!

josie said...

Since he was there with Sheridan and his PA, it was probably business/screening, I guess Mom came along, but it appears she didn't leave with him.

brothers spy said...

I have a strong feeling that Jim Sheridan has a first cut of Brothers finished.

You're right josie, it was a good weekend.

UltraViolet said...

Josie, the blonde woman is Jake's long-time agent, not his PA. And the guy does look like Jim Sheridan. The fact that Jake's mother is there makes it more likely it was a screening and less likely to be looping or something Jake had to do for the movie itself.

But who knows? We need a little more detail in the photo description. Lazy paps :)

Anonymous said...

Was Reese there as well, but why would they come seperately?.

brothers spy said...

UV,

I totally agree. Also it wouldn't make sense to do more looping two days AFTER the first test screening.

I think it was a screening.

Anonymous said...

Sorry to spam but I think she is wearing the bracelet again.

extra said...

That's weird, she was there. I wonder why IHJ only has a partial set of pics and why would they attend the screening together but arrive and leave seperately?

Unless this is offically a business thing and so far they have not appeared at any official events, also his Mom was there, if the paps spotted all of them leaving they would have had a field day.

Twitter said...

Maybe Reese wasn't there, she will see the movie when it is all done :P

UltraViolet said...

Not that surprising if Jake had to go earlier or leave later, or if they were coing from different places.

And there are pictures of Reese there, twitter, so not sure what you mean.

Twitter said...

my wrong

here she is to at the studio, looking cute as ever!

Lovely Sunday... Lovely weekend...The below snap made me howl at the moon.

Swoomworthy Jake in car


25iest Power Couples on Oxygen Channe.
Jake and Reese #3 Power-couple--and one of the most private... on Oxygen. Great fun to hear the comments...e.g., how do you leave Ryan Phillippe and end up with Jake GYLLENHAAL! That is SO NOT Fair...they didn't say those words but their faces showed that sentiment.

oh the shape of his lips!

too much time on my hands said...

Ok, these pictures and the yoga pics were taken the same day. I think that the yoga pics were taken in the morning and these pics were taken later in the day,Reese changed obviously and so did Jake except for the flip flops.

The pics of Reese posted on Jared were probably taken on her way to the studio since she has the dress on also wearing a hoodie but she has on the flip flops from earlier.

The Jared cation says that she was in Brentwood and mentioned Ava but Ava wasn't shown but Reese was carrying a bag with one of Ava'a doll on top.

So Jake and Reese went to a yoga class, Resse went home to probably drop off Ava at Ryan's for fathers day and went over to the Brothers screening.

UltraViolet said...

New pics, new post :)
