An American in Paris

Back in the Gyllenhair Protection program for the day, Jake Gyllenhaal tries to blend in among the Parisians. To no avail.







Perhaps we'll get more glimpses of Jake a à Paris before they depart. I wonder if they will be there for Bastille Day tomorrow.

OMG! TY TY You just made my day so much better. Just got on and here is more delicious Jake.

Anonymous said...

He looks so unbelievably hot in these photos I don't know if I can control myself.

Erin said...

omg! you can see the outline of his chest in that shirt!

and the shoulders...

I should just spend the day in bed suffering from a heat attack

I declare Jake, the most beautiful man on earth day

josie said...

Wow, are you guys quick, thanks!!He is looking quite Parisian here doesn't he??

I noticed something in the other pics at the links. They show Reese and the kids shopping, then they say she went back to the hotel to change her shirt and grab a bite with Jake. But if you noticed, she is carrying a different purse. In the shopping pictures she is carrying a small gold purse, and in the other pics she is carrying that big white bag, the one she was carrying with her on the Eurotrain, i like to call that her overnight bag. Now why would she need that after she dropped the kids off from shopping to grab a bite to eat with Jake? And Jake is wearing his knapsack, again they both are carrying their overnight gear, you wouldn't be carrying that just for eating out now would you?

IMO they went away for a little private time, just speculation of course!!

Anon 4:53 PM I know, I failed in the London stalking, but I do have some time off work, and Paris is looking more and more attractive by the moment (it is a beautiful city anyway)

office of nancy pelosi said...

he is looking super hot in these pictures, I wish that he would keep this look after Pop finishes!

Yeah, I agree josie, it looks like a bit of an overnight getaway to me. He was working for the most part in the UK, but in Paris it's more of a vacation, I hope they enjoy themselves.

Erin said...

Josie, I thought about that to

Why is Jake going to a restaurant with his book bag
He left the hotel with a book bag

josie said...

His "book bag" and her "big bag"=
overnight/traveling bags. There is really no reason IMO for her to switch to a much larger bag to grab a bite to eat, why not just take the gold purse with her. I obviously have too much time on my hands or i'm a big romantic!

Why does that blog and other blogs keep saying that he is going back to the UK for filming, I know they really just assume but it has been reported elsewhere that he was shooting in Morocco as well.

sass said...

Agent_K I have faith in you:)
I think a lot about Heath seeing Jake wearing stripes. Heath loved stripes and wore them all the time, everywhere and in all his various articles of clothing from his head to his feet.
The "E channel Heath special was on again today here in NYC, and will probably go into rotation as a regular program on "E" channel.

Erin said...

ok here is the Splash news link
if someone can live link this for me

The plastic pony picture is the cutest thing I have ever seen

Josie, the info I recently received is that the past several weeks in London was rehearsal time. Morocco for exterior filming. Back to Shepperton for interiors and green screen.

Erin said...

Ok I also observe

Reese was wearing three different outfits in these pictures

A green sweater thing, under the gray sweater as she gets out of the car with the kids

a peach blouse and gray sweater, to dinner

a blue shirt and white pants, leaving the hotel with Jake

Substituted the pics from IHJ :) Thanks, Stephanie.

brothers spy said...

josie,

It's for the same reason that the blogs didn't realize that Jake and Reese were in England together until the very last week, even though it had been reported prior that they were staying together. It's because they weren't paying attention.

Then when Jake and Reese showed up in England together, at the same time, they were like, "oh ya. I heard something about this," and there was a frenzy.

Like I once said, we knew they were there together because we knew about Reese at LAX and knew Jake was in London. We are following this and put it together before hand.

These blogs don't have anyone doing research for them. For the most part, they just repeat what others are saying.

As for London, I think the same thing is true. Other blogs have said that Jake is filming in London all summer, so that's what they report. Even though we know he'll spend the lion's share of that time in Morocco.

FL,

Do you know how they'll split their time between Morocco and London? What I mean is will they film for 5 to 6 weeks in Morocco and then 3 weeks in London, as I was originally told?

What have you heard about this?

josie said...

Ok I looked at the pics again and it appears that the knapsack Jake is carrying may be a carrying case for his PC, the strap looks like it anyway. He carries his knapsack on both shoulders as the pictures yesterday showed, he was carrying his PC bag.

I don't think he is too thrilled with his hair,but I am!

Reese is carrying 3 different bags in these pictures, that and the horse and who knows what else! I assume they are shipping stuff back to the States.

Thanks for clearing up the filming stuff for me FL!

Lemon said...

Nice picture of Sacre Coeur =]

I totally know where those pictures where taken. I used to hang out close to there all the time. Resto-Presto does nice sandwiches too.

Jake looks uber hot. He is starting to look more European

Erin said...

In the horse picture it looks like they are unloading a stroller

maybe the still push Deacon in a stroller

chica said...

The horse I assume is fo Ava and the stroller for Deacon. Youwouldn't believe how manykids, bigger than Deacon that get mushed around in stollers in Mid-town manhattan with their feet dragging on the ground,LOL!!

Somea refamlies/tourists and the kids get tired being dragged around but some aren't.

Looking at pictures of Deacon and his parents it strikes me that he is the type of kid that likes to get picked up and carried around a lot.

Jake looks very Europeon here, Jake and Reese Europeon Vacaction!!!

Everything I hear I usually post here on the blog. So as you can see, it's not all that much. I wish I could tell you more. I mean, I could, but it has nothing to do with Jake or the production - just personal observations from his co-star.

bobbyanna said...

Gorgeous, beautiful pictures!!! I love how he looks. I love the hat, too.
I don't know about the overnight thing. I just don't see Reese leaving her children in a strange city to go away with Jake. They are away. They have a nanny and a BG, so they can "get away" all they need to.

Maybe they are just going to a gym to work out? I imaginer Jake is on a prett rigorous training schedule. Might have a special high protein diet and work out, practice his parkour moves, etc.

sass said...

Amazing when you think of it ...how long Jake and Reese were able to hang out in London without paps finding them...only when he began his outdoor horse training did they come around.

Splash news could just post pics, i.e wireimage/wenn/rexpics, and keep their comments to a low roar, however, I did link it for ya Erin. The Splash news commenter obviously has never ever traveled with kiddos...it's as tiring as anything I've ever done especially when they are small...and I agree Chica about toddlers and strollers here in the city...(guilty here)...kiddos get tired and will not walk when they are really tired or they will walk and cry simultaneously...hence stroller stand by. Jake...I love ya you mensch:)

Reese Splash news

UltraViolet said...

The Splash commentary is idiotic. I don't think Jake and Reese were going away, and I do know, as Sass said, how hard it is to travel with kids. And that's without the paps!

Nice picture of Sacre Coeur

Thanks for noticing, Lemon! I seem to like that flickr user's photos, because this is the second one I chose from the flickr Paris selection.

In case folks haven't seen this, the people who won the Jake visit for the ACLU auction posted their account here. It's friends-locked, but Ted and Lisa have said they'll friend you if you ask. Enjoy.

Erin said...

When Jake gets to Morocco we might not see him as much??

suvee said...

Oh Jake.... are you toying with us now?

He keeps his PoP hair undercover for weeks..... until I am convinced we will never see it until the movie is released. Then, out of the blue, he teases us with a brief glimpse of the hotness we will be enjoying with PoP. And now...... back to the Protection Program. He's very good at whetting our appetites, isn't he? :)

I'm really loving his very French look..... quite sexy! I know it's personal preference, but IMO, but as he gets older, he gets better.

Just my 2¢, but I think this a quick Paris get away for them..... I can't imagine trying to keep a 4 year old boy happy and entertained for any length of time in Paris. I'm guessing Reese and kids, or nanny and kids will be heading back to the States this coming week once Jake leaves for Morocco. It will be interesting to see how J & R work out how to be together while he is filming there.

paula said...

Thanks for the link to Ted and Lisa UV, I'm already friended to them!

Anonymous said...

Sass, the striped look reminds me of Heath too.
I like Jake's clothes, the beany hat and bag. Reese looks pretty too.
I hope they enjoy their time in Paris.

suvee said...

UV, thank you so much for the link to Ted & Lisa's LJ account of their lunch with Jake. It was a great read, and to a large extent, it confirmed much that I always believed to be true about the kind of person Jake is.

bobbyanna said...

Is that a plastic sword I saw along with the plastic horse coming out of the car? ;) Maybe Deacon's helping Jake with his sword fighting practice? One of the Splash pictures has Deacon "emerging" from the car. He is adorable!

Vicky said...

Thanks for the link to Ted and Lisa's meeting with Jake, it was a great read and confirms what we already thought, that Jake went to the Heaths memorial and they remained friends, perhaps that will stop some of the hate (doubt it though). Only one quibble but I will keep that to myself.

Lemon said...

Reese on Ellen tomorrow?


Thanks for noticing, Lemon! I seem to like that flickr user's photos, because this is the second one I chose from the flickr Paris selection.


You're welcome uv. I did check out the flikr account and there are some stunning photos.

I can't imagine trying to keep a 4 year old boy happy and entertained for any length of time in Paris.

There's actually a lot to do in Paris. I imagine they could keep the kids amused for at least a couple of weeks.

shondra said...

lemon, I think that Ellen episode may be a repeat from Febuary when she was prmoting Penelope but I may be wrong.

Bobbyanna, I caught that too with the horse and sword, adorable!!

He is really looking sexy here.

Anonymous said...

Can someone recap what Ted and Lisa wrote. I know it was a lot. Could someone at least describe what they wrote regarding Heath.

Anonymous said...

The account of meeting Jake was generally a nice piece. I have something more then a "quibble" with certain passages, I will also keep to myself. It began with airport delays and lost luggage, late night shopping., They meet their PA/escort for a set tour, then lunch with Jake.

It was a pretty lively discussion. Lots of fun, but I found certain parts of it extremely painful. I'll just say, as I have always, always believed/known in my heart, Jake and Heath were very close, they were good friends. There's both a lot of love and a lot of pain there, still being processed.
The account left me with even more love and respect for Jake then I already have. He is the absolute epitome of grace.

Anonymous said...

What was the "quibble?" I don't have a live journal account. To read this article i'd have to sign up and then ask to be a "friend." Could someone just tell me.

Anonymous said...

For me the "quibble" was in the epiloque, they said they did not ask Jake about his sexuality as it was nobodies business, why even write that and why does everything re Jake have to involve his sexuality. Would anyone that met Colin Farrell ask him?.

Sorry UV/FL delete if not appropriate.

It looks like Jake and Deacon are wearing matching striped shirts!

Also, it appears that these
pictures were taken over a 2 day period 7/12 & 7/13 which means they were/are camped out in front of their hotel unfortunately.

I agree. I couldn't believe they included that.

Anonymous said...

8:17 here. I agree. Not only was the discussion of his sexual orientation distasteful and out of place, it was ambiguously disingenuous. IMO. Also felt there were several other instances when boundaries were not observed.

As I said. Jake is the epitome of grace. Clearly, he enjoyed discussion his movies, movies in general, and probably would have enjoyed some ACLU-related discussion since that was the entire purpose of the lunch!

Oh well.

Must rush off to see new pictures. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

C'mon how could anyone have doubted Heath and Jake were very close. Look at pictures of them together, how they look at each other. A lot of genuine affection, so obvious.

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for the new pictures! OK. I confess.
I have a huge crush on Deacon.

MrsNormanMain said...

No biggy. Considering the primary audience and the authors for that LJ article, I'm not even surprised Jake's "sexuality" was addressed.

The Heath part bothered me a lot, though. Felt like they were over the line with that stuff. Glad the girl tried to talk about some of Jake's other movies, beside BBM. It was an amazing movie, for sure, but still...

Anonymous said...

9:36 they talked about BBM most because Ted and Lisa belong to the BBM fandom. Why does it bother you? It's the movie that made Jake a star.

Paula said...

Yes Anon., it made him a star and I love the movie, but since no personal questions were allowed during Zodiac/Rendition promotion by the press, why would they even think he would respond if they asked? Since they are members of the BBM fandom, I suspect that others in the fandom gave them a list of questions and that was one of them.

No matter, I enjoyed reading the encounter and he has such class and grace and he is well aware of the internet, not that I thoght otherwise. And I never thought for a moment that he didn't attend the memorial for Heath.

No off to look at the matching shirt pics of Jake and Deacon!

agent_krycek said...

I know what you mean bobbyanna, Deacon is just the cutest little boy :D

I wonder if the white horse was for him, cos that would give him a horse like Jake's (only slightly less real, obviously), a sword like Jake and now matching tops :D

mrsnormanmain said...

I clearly said it was "no biggy." Talking about BBM. I know what fandom they came from. Said so in my post. BBM, is one of my favorite movies, but I enjoyed the discussion the girl had with Jake about Zodiac, too.

It was the discussion about Heath that bothered me. I thought they crossed a line of privacy.

Jake doesn't owe anybody "clarification."
Once they saw how affected he was when he talked about Heath and his experience with BBM, why did they feel like they had to return to the topic, and ask him about the service, or anything else related to Heath's death.

Then to keep digging the hole by talking about Matilda and so forth as if they know these people? Sorry. That crosses a boundary for me.

Jake is so gracious, he made the best of it. These people are strangers to him. He meets them for an hour at lunch in the middle of shooting a movie. I don't think his grieving for Heath was top of HIS list to discuss with strangers.

Look. For me, some parts were real enjoyable and a few parts weren't.

Anonymous said...

I totally agree with Mrs.NormanMain. Just because you are a fan of a film, doesn't give you the right the pry into someone's private life like that. Even though the article was generally positive, it is still rude beyond words to ask someone who took time out of his busy schedule to have lunch with you (and had never met you before) questions that he generally doesn't feel comfortable answering.

Anonymous said...

extra, all I get is "Page not found". :(

As for Jake and the fans at the dinner. He could have refused to talk (so much) about Heath. He didn't. I think many fans appreciate it.

mrsnormanmain said...

My very last post on the subject. Promise. Sometimes, when someone is really, really nice, and really kind, and open,people misunderstand that and misuse it sometimes with out meaning to. They take advantage.

Jake agrees to participate in raising money for ACLU by giving his time on a movie set. He could have ended the lunch discussion.

He could have gotten very firm and tough and said, in effect, "Don't talk to me about that." But he doesn't. Instead, he extends himself so this will be a positive experience for these two donnors, and there won't be any blowback for the ACLU. He gets thru it. But whether he minded some of it, we will never know.

He seems like a very sensitive, person. He also strikes me as a tactful, considerate person. I wish more people were like him! That much is clear.

Anonymous said...

extra, never mind I googled the People report about Reese and Jake, but thanks for the heads up.

sass said...

My feeling the morning after one of my most emotional readings of what happened to all of us in January is one of near total emotional devastation. Right now, I free raw and exposed, sad and teary.
I can't get Jake's intimate and very painful discourse about his friend out of my mind.
I laughed so hard at their adventures getting to the film site and I cried for hours during and after reading it.
I was glad they shared with us. I felt Jake's pain as would anyone who has lost someone they love.
That he speaks of his loss as if it's not happened breaks my heart; I had to take some time off after reading that section and pray for Jake and Heath to have peace.
I feel silly writing about my discomfort; I didn't know Heath intimately, I wasn't his best friend and I am not godfather to his daughter...but that is how it is.

Brand new pictures on IHJ Jake, Reese and the kids ... Jake carrying Ava. Cuteness!

so many questions said...

Like a lot of you I read Ted and Lisa's self-indulgent, I mean, retelling with a leery eye. They report that Jake said – “He is one of my best friends...”; “We are very close...“; “We both realise the impact of the movie..”; “We are aware of what the movie means to people,” And they report, "nothing was ever said about Heath in the past tense."

There seems to be a few things missing from the above. Was Jake just sitting there reeling off all those things about Heath unprovoked? I find that hard to believe. And if those "present tense" statements about Heath were true, then what were they in response to? For all that talking about Heath that Jake seemed to do they couldn't remember the questions that led up Jake those things? Something smells fishy.

Sorry UV/FL, if this in inappropriate here. It was bothering me and I needed to get it off my chest in a friendly environment.

agent_krycek said...

Goodness, Jake taking a picture of Deacon and then lifting up Ava - beyond cute.

sass said...

11:07.
What are you saying??? That Jake didn't talk about Heath in that manner...as if he were not gone from us forever...that they fabricated the questions and the encounter? What? I am confused.
My bad if I misunderstood your ?

Anonymous said...

I don't think they fabricated the encounter, but the parts about Heath could be made up.

so many questions said...

sass, I don't know what to think other than things don't add up. Were they padding their report to make it more Heath-centric? Were they pandering to the audience who expected them to ask intrusive questions about Heath? I just want to know what they said or what Jake said prior to his making those present tense statements about Heath.

Seems like Lisa was doing so much talking that they forgot half of what Jake said. :(

get real said...

Well, I am not going to get into the debate of whether they padded the talk about Heath, BBM, etc. What means most to me is how kind and gracious and classy Jake was.

I am copying and pasting the part below because it really says how I feel.

Thanks so much UV for the heads up on their account.

Needless to say I was blown away at how wonderful it all was. I am so happy for them that despite some annoyances with their travel they had such an amazing time meeting Jake! I was so overjoyed to read how gracious, kind, considerate and open Jake was with them. I was not surprised but it confirms my feelings about him and what a special human being he is. I am so glad it was cleared up that he went to Heath's memorial. I was disgusted and angered at the negativity some hurled at him when they didn't even know the real story. The fact that he talked of Heath in the present tense makes me feel that he holds their friendship and Heath in the utmost respect and with privacy.

And have to say YUM to the way Jake looked in the Paris pics. He was working the French look but put his own spin on it. ;p

Off to look at the new pics of Jake, with the kids!

Have a good day all

"Reese Witherspoon, walking hand-in-hand with Jake Gyllenhaal through Paris' Jardin du Luxembourg."

From People.com. This was on the 11th, the same day as the pics of Jake, Reese and the kids. I assume the Nanny took the kids somewhere why they did a little PDA since there was no mention of the kids in this blurb!

sass said...

I don't have the emotional strength to get into what was and wasn't said...I take it as it is written which in itself is a very emotional read for me and is still affecting me today, like I said I didn't know Heath's personally.
Jake is as I've said before a classy guy, he's a mensch, though he would never say that about himself...BUT, I found what I need to make me feel better and y'all know I have to embiggen them enjoying Paris...Jake is so hot with long hair....*whew* I had not choice but to make him bigger:)

Wow! Just saw the rest of the pics of them walking in the Jardin du Luxembourg. They are all just so sweet together! My "crush" has his orange pants on.;)

Jake looks for all the world like a photojournalist snapping Deacon. I love it that they enjoy the simple pleasures, sight seeing, picture taking, etc. The clothes they are wearing look a lot like their travel clothes. At least the two guys.;)

I just looked at the pics of Jake, Reese and the kids....OMG cutenss overload! Love how adorable they all are together. Jake picking up Ava is the sweetest thing. :)

Oh yay, they're in Luxembourg! There's a boat pond in the middle of the gardens and kids can hire out boats and push them around. It's very cute.

Reese's kids are beyond adorable. The little girl is ridiculously pretty and the boy is very handsome.

UltraViolet said...

I don't think this is the place to discuss Ted and Lisa's report. I'm happy that they cleared up the issue of whether or not Jake went to Heath's memorial service. I'm glad the report shows Jake to be the loving and fun-loving person we always knew he is.

Let's hope some of the totally uncalled for venom against Jake dissipates as a result.

New post.
