I love Paris in the summer...

vive la France! Sacre bleu. And whatever other cliches you like :) This is like the old days - Jake just keeps poping up!



Some new Jake pictures from today. In the first, Jake combines with the sign to form a version of le tricoleur. A way to celebrate Bastille Day!


Locks flowing. Free the Gyllenhair!


I like having a specific answer to "Where in the world is Jake Gyllenhaal?" ;)




After taking the train to Paris, Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon heeded the words of Cole Porter, heading out to the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg for some strolling, sitting - and texting! You can take the boy out of Los Angeles...




The last one definitely needs a caption! All the ones I came up with were x-rated, though... ;)

More pictures of Jake, Reese and kids out for lunch, then Jake returning to their hotel.






Sigh. Paris. Je t'aime.

I wonder if they were texting or using their blackberries to check on directions.

Anyway, doesn't matter.

Jake is probably on his way to Morocco as we speak. His co-star flew out yesterday from London.

get real said...

Sigh...all so lovely. :)

And the Paris pics you have added are great, UV!

Anonymous said...

Oh, these pictures are really great and isn't cute how Deacon and Jake have (almost) matching shirts?

UltraViolet said...

So you're telling me I have to start searching the Morocco flickr pics, FL? :)

Glad you've enjoyed the Paris photo selection, get real. I've been indulging myself, traveling vicariously. I really do love Paris, so this has been really fun for me.

And yes, anon, the matching shirts are too adorable for words!

agent_krycek said...

I vote texting, each other, soppy love texts, cos I'm a die hard romantic.

Ava is so like her mother, such a pretty girl, although I think she's going to be a fair bit taller. Deacon is just completely adoreable

sass said...

Afternoon all,
The matching shirts are so adorable. I even googled the restaurant, read a review and imagined myself dining there.
TY again, cause I just found the Cafe Janou pics a few minutes ago.:)

Erin said...

I wonder if Reese went to Morocco??

UltraViolet said...

That restaurant is in Le Marias, I think. The MArais is my absolute favorite part of Paris - I've always dreamed of having an apartment on the Place des Vosges.

Sigh.

Don't go to Morocco, Jake. Stay in Paris and live my dream life.

Okay, I'll stop now.

sheba baby said...

Yes, please stay in Paris, sigh.

I just love these pictures, especially the one where Jake is lifting Ava!

Erin, we don't even now if Jake went to Morocco, let alone Reese. I love them and seeing them all together, but she's a Mom as well, I bet the kids are getting a bit cranky. I think once he goes to Morocco she will head back to the states with the kids, she has plentyo of time to visit him there.

agent_krycek said...

I think he's lifting her up so she can get a better photo, she's carrying a small silver camera - just sweet and adorable, also like Deacon in the foreground of those shots, being very 4 year old like with his arm movement (if you know what I mean)

FluorescentLamp said...

we don't even now if Jake went to Morocco, let alone Reese

sheba baby, if Jake's co-star left yesterday out of London for Morocco, I am about 99.9% sure Jake headed there yesterday/last night as well.

Erin said...

I was thinking the Kids would be with Ryan while she goes to Morocco

How would Reese and Jake be apart for the weeks he is in Morocco

how can you not see your man for weeks :p

FluorescentLamp said...

And Erin, stop fretting about Jake and Reese and will they be together or apart. It's getting tiresome.

sheba baby said...

You're right FL, and I assume the co-star was Emma. Second time Jake is filming a movie in Morocco and filming must be going great if they bumped up the start date.

PS: I adore the almost matching striped shirts on Jake and Deacon, they will have such nice memories to remember from this trip.

FluorescentLamp said...

and I assume the co-star was Emma.

No, it was not. It was Reece Ritchie, who will be playing Dastan's best friend in the film.

get real said...

Paris is so lovely. Have been there too and want to go back badly when I see these pics. Yes, UV your pics of Paris also add to the beauty. :)

Thanks, FL for the heads up on some of the cast leaving for Morocco. Would be nice if Jake were still in Paris though... sigh....

agent_krycek said...

Can't remember who said it on the other thread, but I agree with the Jake goes to Morocco, Reese and kids return to the US, the kids then go to Ryan and Reese returns to Morocco to be with Jake scenario. Her schedule is clear this summer and I think she'll spend the next few weeks with her man, on set, admiring him galloping around and being all dashing like - and we won't be jealous at all, will we ;-)

josie said...

I have not seen my man in weeks, and believe me it's a sign of a healthy relationship!!!

They were apart during Nailed/Brothers/Four Christmases filming, yeah there were set visits but they were apart more than togehter, she has been with him in the UK for several weeks with the kids while he was rehearsing and a side trip to Paris, that's more than enough.

She will visit him in Morocco i'm sure, but she doean't have to be there 24/7, that's too much, and they ain't teenagers anymore.

Meanwhile Erin just look at the lovely pictures of them in Paris, they are too sweet!

PS: Did anyone notice the caption on these pictures on IHJ: They say Jake and Reese and their family, this is the 2nd time this has been mentioned.

sass said...

I've read accounts by fellow diners, on blogs and journals, of Jake eating out, and eating what we eat in general, so I wonder what this present diet is about...the new film probably.
I wish I knew how he is trimming down diet-wise as I have loads of pounds to donate to to a good diet.

OK, now I'm off to see how high the prices are in my neighborhood store today. :lol:lol

Saturday, the store manager pleaded with us to use less plastic bags; they are now 6 cents per bag as opposed to 1/2 cent per bag last year.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OT:
Pres Bush today is going to lift the off shore drill ban, but no drilling can take place without the consent of Congress. I am not happy.

bobbyanna said...

I think the people in the relationship determine what is "healthy" for them. Being apart works for some people. Great.

Recent history, at least since Brothers, demonstrates Reese and Jake prefer to be together as much as possible. They appear to make a huge effort to be together. I guess they'd know best what is "enough" for them.

Does anyone know where they will be working in Morocco?

Ava seems taller. Maybe a growth spurt? Deacon is just deliciously delightful.

Erin said...

NEW pictures up!!!
http://iheartjakemedia.com

Jake in Nikes and shorts

Erin said...

hold on to your desk when you see his legs in shorts!
warning you may pass out from the hotness

Anonymous said...

Not to worry; it'll take at least a decade before any drilling can start, if its even approved, and by then, there'll be a new regime in Washington. Environmental impact studies, enough to tie it up in the courts for years! :)

UltraViolet said...

Added the pics. I love the ones where his hair is free!

UltraViolet said...

Sass, I find the drilling story depressing also. Is there no corner of the earth W will leave unscathed?

Erin said...

I need to get past his legs to notice the long hair :P

Good lord! look at his leg muscles

UltraViolet said...

It's kid's day: Maggie and Ramona, out for a stroll.

chica said...

Boy are you fast!! Love all the pictures, thanks for putting a smile on my face today, been having a crappy day at work.

I feel like he is playing peek-a-boo with his hair!

I'm really loving all these Paris/family pictures.

brothers spy said...

I can confirm what FL said.

My source, who has since gone completely MIA BTW, told me that they were leaving for Morocco Sunday. Thus, Jake is probably in Morocco right now.

Morocco isn't that far by plane to Paris.

BTW, the script I gave you guys isn't worth much since it's been completely re-written.

My missing source also said they weren't filming this week, only more rehearsals. He's the one who told me that actual filming begins on July 22.

My guess is that Reese will stay behind in Paris with the kids and Jake will be back next weekend (since he seems to have another three days off).

agent_krycek said...

In those shorts photos he looks like a scruffy, gorgeous student - not that I went to school/college with anyone who looked like him. The legs are fine, and I'm soooo digging the hair.

Thanks for the info brothers spy, so London, little break in Paris, then off to Morocco - all makes perfect sense, if you're staying in London, been there for weeks and have a few days, I'd certainly head for Paris as well.

We can only blame ourselves - WE have to stop using as much, WE have to conserve, and WE have to ensure our politicians, and ourselves, come up with alternative fuels and more economical autos. WE have to decide what the lesser of the evils is, continuing to get oil from overseas, which I doubt will ever stop, or continue to drill the seas or pristine wildernesses until there is nothing left. You can't blame the politicians only.

lawgoddess said...

Thank you, UV, for all the lovely photos and clever captions. Jake and Paris both look great. :)

Deacon and jake are both in stripes, so cute.

Fun days for us.

Erin said...

JustJared "says" Reese was in Paris today
new pictures of her
http://justjared.buzznet.com/tags/reese-witherspoon/

enigma said...

I love what Reese is wearing.

I also love the picture of them texting.

bobbyanna said...

OMG, UV!!! Those pictures of Ramona are so adorable. I love that she is covering her mouth while yawning!!!

Sass, UV, I read that too, about the drilling restrictions. I take small comfort from the fact Congress has to approve, too. Maybe that will stall things.

I guess with Bush's approval ratings in the toilet, he's discarded any pretext of "caring." Just when I think he can't get any worse, he does!

His public policies only reflect corporate interests. He's totally unconcerned with public opinion, public pressure, or public good.

Almost every day, he finds a new way to thumb his nose at all of us. I consider his behavior criminal in every single respect.

I pray we can survive the next few months without too much more damage. George Bush is a very dangerous man.

UltraViolet said...

The IHJ caption on today's flowing locks pics says "and Reese Witherspoon (not pictured)." Not sure why they didn't get one of the both of them. I guess Reese and Jake are having fun playing the paps.

Vicky said...

A couple more pics Here

Love that pic.

UltraViolet said...

Ooh, Vicky, good find! Love seeing Jake and Reese together and smiling!

Also, it's hilarious that the site thinks Vince V is in Venice, Italy. You know, where they have no cars.

Vicky said...

LOL didn't even read that part abut Vince.

UltraViolet said...

hope there will be more, but I added the two Jake pics to the post. This is fun!

FluorescentLamp said...

*poke* Dude, you're supposed to be in Morocco, the rest of the cast is waiting for you. *poke*

agent_krycek said...

That is such a gorgeous picture, very romantic looking with the slight haze of the window - sigh.

brothers spy said...

FL,

I think Jake pulled rank and told them to start without him. He may leave after Bastille Day.

Anonymous said...

IHJ has one more of J&R, it looks the same but yes I agree very romantic!

Hello, babblers!
Thank you for all links and photos!
The photos of Jake with the Deacon and Ava are lovely!

Maggie Gyllenhaal: Brother Jake Is a Natural with Kids

Maggie

dontwanttosaygb said...

Hey All,

This is Ted from the Jake Visit report, I just wanted to thank UV for posting the link here yesterday so that anyone interested could read it. I have viewed the comments made on the other thread from yesterday but further commenting have been disabled and UV has requested that this is not the place to discuss this report, but I would like to ask anyone who has made comments on the other page, or who has concerns, that why don't they post these directly to my LJ and then Lisa and I can address your concerns or questions. You might be surprised at some of the answers.

Thanks for everyones kind support, we hope this post has let people see the real Jake.

Cheers, Ted

sass said...

Hi there UV and all who have visited Paris...please don't stop the reminisces...I love it and the links rock. I've never been but I know I'd love it. Some of my family vacationed there and went to a Jazz festival in Paris...I think or somewhere near Paris and told me they loved every minute they were there:)

OT
Yeah bobbyanna, Bush frightens me too. The Iran saber-rattling, the continuous war-mongering and the oil issues frighten me most.

Sometimes I feel like they..TPTB...are pushing us hard by all means necessary hoping we will give in and say, "Yeah, go fuk up Alaska and our coastlines again too."

We don't have an infinite supply of oil on this planet. That is obvious to all but the most myopic of us. We must find and use alternative modes of transportation and energy.

I became lazy after the 70's when oil was < 20 dollars a barrel for years but it's obvious to me and to most of us that we have to change.

I came back home to and am I glad to take mass transit around this area. I don't miss my truck at all with its 9-12 miles per gallon of gas I was getting. Hopefully, I would have traded it in by now.

I though Bush would lame duck it out of office, but his ego can't take it, so he has to continue to insinuate himself into public policy and make McCain's life miserable.

I'm still trying to wrap myself around the satirical? New Yorker cover. Is it satire if you can't get it for a long time? I love satire and usually get it right away, nary a struggle, and I'm trying with this cover but I'm still not sure what's up. Maybe it's like this for me, because I am not happy with our nominee's character has been portrayed in parts of the MSM.

UltraViolet said...

Hello Ted - welcome to GyllenBabble. Feel free to address any of the questions from the last post here, if you want.

My main hope from this is that people will finally put all the post 1/22 Jake hatred to rest. I know that won't happen, especially since so much of it is rooted, IMO, in hatred of Reese/the fact of his relationship with Reese.

Anonymous said...

It's rooted in the fact that Jake isn't the character he portrayed in "Brokeback Mountain."

It's rooted in the fact that "Brokeback Mountain" was just another film in his filmography and not the out-of-body experience it seems to have been for some fans.

The reaction to Reese and Heath are both symptoms of that, not causes.

UltraViolet said...

Wow - Us Magazine is running a poll on whether clean or scruffy is Jake's better look. And look at the incredible picture they have for scruffy - I wish we could get it bigger.

Bette said...

I gotta agree with anon, though I do believe it impacted him but it wasn't as powerful as some people would like to believe. It is interesting to note in the report, I read it Ted, of the fact that Jake spoke of Heath in the present tense. I still keep hoping this is some kind of crazy viral marketing campaign, and they've hidden Heath away until the opening night of TDK in the states. It would be the best kept secret ever pulled off though. Alas I think Heath is really gone, so sad still. :( Anyway, I love love love all the new pics. The one of them in the car, and his arm is up it looks like he is either reaching for seat belt or reaching for her. I'd like to think he's reaching for her. And the ones of Jake with the kids, so adorable. Specially the one where he is holding her up.

FluorescentLamp said...

And look at the incredible picture they have for scruffy - I wish we could get it bigger.

That scruffy pic skeeers meeee. Look at those extensions! They're going every which way!

bobbyanna said...

The New York premiere of TDK is going on right now and Getty is just starting to post pictures. Maggie looks just exquisite. Truly lovely. Michael Caine and Christian Bale with their wives also pictured. TV tonight said Heath's family would be there, but I've seen no pictures yet.

UltraViolet said...

I love it! Every which way but loose, one hopes :)

By the way, clean cut is winning handily. I really can't decide, but I voted scruffy because I figured clean cut would win.

suvee said...

At the risk of being a little schmoopy...... they really do seem to be such a lovely family, don't they? It makes me happy to see them together.

I got a kick out of the matching stripe shirt on Deacon..... made me smile. But I just melted when I saw that photo of Jake lifting Ava. That's the picture I've been waiting for, I'll admit. And how great to hear Maggie's confirmation of Jake's "touch" with kids..... she would know!

Your Paris pics have been a wonderful addition to these latest posts, UV. Thanks!

office of nancy pelosi said...

Loving all the pictures from Paris, love the one's with them and the kids and the last additions of Jake and Reese in the car is lovely.

I'm having a problem with the satirical New Yorker cover as well Sass. I see what they were trying to say, but i'm very uncomfortable with it.

bobbyanna said...

"I'm having a problem with the satirical New Yorker cover as well Sass. I see what they were trying to say, but i'm very uncomfortable with it."
What she said!!

I voted for scruffy, too. I have this sense of foreboding...we have all these great pictures and it's all so lovely...I'm waiting for the drought to hit any minute...

Erin said...

I think once he gets to Morocco we won't see him for a while, he will be busy filming.


Are there paparazzi in Morocco?

Anonymous said...

Peter is escorting Maggie, bobbyanna. He kind of reminds me of Heath a lot! Maggie is dressed and gorgeous, and Peter has some wilted pink shirt on, open-necked, no tie, and some random brown suit jacket on. Hair rather unruly. Looks like he just ran out of the house and said, "hey, how 'bout a movie!"

suvee said...

I have this sense of foreboding...we have all these great pictures and it's all so lovely...I'm waiting for the drought to hit any minute...

My thoughts exactly, bobbyanna. This has been a nice little treat, hasn't it? Like UV mentioned.... just like the old days.

I voted "scruffy" too. :)

mustthinkofaname said...

Help! Someone mentioned a picture of Jake lifting Ava, which one is that? I can't find it...

FluorescentLamp said...

That would be this one , mtoan.

sass said...

Thought I'd share pics of Maggie who looks beautiful and Maggie and Peter and one of the cast below...sshhhh at Premiere here NYC at AMC Loews enter on Broadway and 68th St...hope they show up.
wrmge
enjoy babblers

Beautiful Maggie


Beautiful Maggie and Peter at Premiere earlier tonight on Black carpet

Maggie Gary Oldman Michael Caine and Christian Bale

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for those, sass. I had no idea Gary Oldman was short. Well. He looks like he's about 5'10".
Maggie looks really lovely and she lights up when Peter is with her.

BTW: I really, really hope they have some good stuntmen for Jake. I just watched a parkour video on yahoo by some fitness guy talking about the exercise benefits. Hah! It looks really dangerous! And for anyone over 20 it looks impossible.

Wonder if the kids got to see any fireworks for Bastille Day. I pretty sure Jake and Reese did ;)

sass said...

Sharing one more time

Maggie and TDK cast


(L-R) Actors Chin Han, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Christian Bale, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman and Director Christopher Nolan attend the premiere of "The Dark Knight" at AMC Loews Lincoln Center on July 14, 2008 in New York City.

mustthinkofaname said...

thank you so much florescentlamp! I was going batty looking for it. And yeah, it makes me melt a little. :)

sass said...

Bobbyanna, You know I never knew or thought about Oldman's height...he's such a huge screen presence...until I saw him sitting next to the women on the View this morning and noticed how he sat in his chair.
xo
see ya

UltraViolet said...

Erin, post a link to that Star piece of BS if you want, but we don't need to read it all here.

On a happier note, Bobbyanna was wondering about whether Jake and Reese and the kids would see fireworks. See the new post for an answer :)
