More horsing around

Edited to add these two pictures of helmetless Jake. One's a slightly bigger version of a photo we've already seen. The other is new. Thanks to Gemma Arterton Online.



Never too much Jake Gyllenhaal. Some more PoP training pictures, courtesy of IHJ, and a video of Jake, Gemma and others riding in the horse ring.











I love the first rain-dappled photo. And the last, with Jake gentling the horse. And the fierce one above it. Two sides of the same coin.

As much as I loathe giving this man any hits, this video is pretty cool. Enjoy!

Oh I love the video so much!

And the rain one too.

bobbyanna said...

Good Lorrrd! Just got in and saw these!!!! He looks absolutely....damn! I like. Very much. Thank you, UV & FL!!!! Thank you, Stephanie!!!

His hair as it is, and the beard don't bother me at all. I don't think there are extensions. If he keeps it just like that, kind of scraggily, I will be fine with it. I just don't want "Barveheart." Fully coiffed with extensions.
And I love the combination of beard and hair. He looks ...Biblical.;) ;)

You're right ,FL. He's hung on to his chest hair. Jake sure does wear those jeans well, doesn't he??? (O.M.G.).

Anonymous said...

Awww . . . I love the pic where he's petting the horse. :)

Yes, his natural hair is best.

Wow, this is great! Off to watch the video. :)

Monica said...

UV, thank you for photos and video!


The vision was better than expected. He was afraid of long hair, but now I see that it was great!

It's so nice to see the Jake. Better yet is to see that it was fun. He loves his work. And that's wonderful.

Is anyone else unable to comment from the comments-only page?

Monica said...

Anon, you are referring to my comment?

UltraViolet said...

Monica, I think the anon was having trouble making a comment from the basic comments page. Your post was fine. And I was worried about the hair and the role, all of it. Seeing Jake so happy makes me forget all that stuff. Well, for now anyway :)

The video is really fun. Almost enough to make me forgive Mr Pap for the annoying, lame crap he spews.

Almost. But not quite enough!

And yes, Bobbyanna. Jake wears those jeans very well. And Bette, there's something about the rain pic that appeals.

suvee said...

Oh my word. I don't even know where to begin.....

For starters, let's just say that my fears about his PoP hair have been completely put to rest. He looks insanely fine, and I agree..... that's his hair, no extensions.

IMO, there's just something about a hot man astride a beautiful horse..... and that "something" involves sex appeal! I love the first pic so much..... even allowing for the helmet and shades, for the first time I can see the romantic, dashing, hot hero Jake's Dastan will be. I'm just about speechless at how incredible he looks in these pics!

Thank you so much FL, UV and Stephanie! I actually believe it was worth the wait to see him again. :)

Anonymous said...

Yeah, Mr. Pap's a creep, but the video is fun. Jake looks great in the saddle, I'm impressed, especially since he's not a regular horserider. Admittedly, I'm no expert, and I don't think we need to be experts in horsemanship to enjoy a good film. I love the motion of his body in the saddle through the shoulders, back, arms, and yes, hips and thighs - hot!

FluorescentLamp said...

OH! We have video! Well done, UV, well done! A-OK!

How do those horses not trip over their long tails?

chica said...

A video too? We are getting spoiled, aren't we? Love the look and seriously digging the long hair, thanks for posting!

FluorescentLamp said...

I don't know how that can be Jake's real hair - hair only grows at the rate of half an inch per month. And on June 15th (last pics of him), his hair was considerably shorter.

Still sticking to the hair extensions theory. :-)

xxMariexx said...

Oh jeez I just orgasmed :) Holy crap, how sexy does our boy look in these? The hair, the beard, the little bit of chest hair poking out, the bod...*dies* Wow, I really want to be that horse right now...or better yet, Reese :)

Erin said...

ok if he has in hair extensions, does he take them off when he leaves the movie set at the end of the day?

I wonder if he ever takes them off

lawgoddess said...

Thank you so much UV AND FL for the pictures and video. It was a while between sightings, but worth the wait. The pictures and video made me post while on vacation, which I wasn't planning to do. :) OMG he's hot! And the video was quite swoonworthy, he was so relaxed and sexy, and looked great on the horse. Yum!

suvee said...

Okay FL, you have made me re-think my no hair extensions opinion. :)

You're right about the 1/2" a month growth rate........ I forgot that the last pics of Jake were from 6/15. It seems like months to me!

His hair looks and moves so naturally in a lot of these photos, I just assumed it was all his. Admittedly, I don't know squat about extensions.... I picture B. Spears after she shaved her head, or J. Simpson. Their hair (with extensions, I assume) looks like stiff, unnatural Barbie hair. But extensions or not, Jake's hair looks good to me.

Oh, one more thing that I want to add.....
lucky, lucky Reese!

Anonymous said...

If those are hair extensions then I think they did a real good job. They look very natural.

brothers spy said...

Here's an article that says that Jake is attached to star in David Fincher's Torso. I'm not sure if it's true or not, but the article is recent.

www.superheroflix.com/news/16/29716.php

FluorescentLamp said...

Here's a fun video of bonded hair extensions. It's all underneath the top layer of original hair. Jake's bonded hair extensions are probably more of the glued in and less of the bonded knots.

I have a girlfriend who's had hair extensions. I guess it hurts the first couple of days after it's done.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Love all the pictures and the video, he looks buff and sexy!

The thing about the extensions: If he is wearing them, why is he wearing them now, it doesn't look like he is filming that looks like a riding school.

Maybe to get himself in the mood but I remember the sightings of him flying to the UK and they described him hiding his hair under a hoodie, whatever I approve!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July and wondering how Jake and Reese are going to celebrate this holiday over in the UK!

Erin said...

why would he wear the extensions now, when they are just riding horses, assuming actual filming hasn't taken place yet.
I would guess the chest hair would be waxed to, if they already started the extensions.

here is my hair idea
That is his real hair, they will comb it straight, as pictured below

FluorescentLamp said...

Okay, let me pose this question to you - do you think his hair grew about 3 inches in 3 weeks?

Erin said...

in those pictures he is also wearing some kind of necklace

bobbyanna said...

FL, IDK. On the 15th, he had his hair all gooped up,sort of piled and styled, for that screening at the studio with his mom and Reese and James Sheridan.

He'd been wearing a baseball cap with his hair sticking out at yoga. So maybe his hair was already growing and now it's more noticeable.

It looks kind of uneven and scraggly. In the summer, my hair grows an inch a month. Maybe he took hair vitamins...;)

Yeah, he could be wearing extensions. Even tho we're seeing pictures of them working with the horses, it's possible they're also doing green screen work as well, indoors. So he would have to look the part for it. Or, maybe it helps him with his character and he wants to get used to this new look. It sure is a huge departure from his previous looks!!!

I'm feeling less uneasy then I was. He looks sexy and beautiful, but I have to admit, I'm still nervous...He does look like he is thoroughly enjoying himself!

(Jake's making me feel so confused!)

agent_krycek said...

Oh he looks lovely, and I honestly think that is his hair, rather then extensions, his hair does seem to grow very quickly.

Since I can't provide any sightings I'll provide a Gyllenspoon weather watch instead, so the weather in London today is bloody glorious, ideal for shopping and horse riding (although rain expected tonight)

brothers spy said...

Rain expected in England? Who would have thunk it? ;)

sheba baby said...

Happy fourth of July everyone!

Love, LOVE these pictures, he looks incredible and I do think that's his real hair.

Love the video, he looks so relaxed and happy.

agent_krycek said...

It's a shocker isn't it bs - some of us couldn't figure out what the wet stuff falling from the sky could possibly be ;-)

I was trying to figure out the necklace, in the early set of horse photos you can see it - looks rather like a small wheel ???

Erin said...

Jake looked happy and healthy in the pictures, like he is enjoying this movie, unlike Nailed.

So as he looks happy and healthy, I can get past the hair

bobbyanna said...

Does anyone know, by chance, if the Shepperton Studios might have the riding stable on site, or if they had to go to another location for these sessions?

"Jake looked happy and healthy in the pictures, like he is enjoying this movie, unlike Nailed."

I saw no evidence at all that Jake was not happy and healthy on the Nailed set. One of my favorite sets of pictures, is Reese and Jake being all giggly while on a break on set.

In fact, with all the turbulence of the financial mess, I was surprised that, with the exception of James Cann, there were no negative reports coming off the set at all.

josie said...

I have to get used to the hair but the rest of him, YUM!!!! I have my fingers crossed for J&R pics from London this weekend.

Happy July 4th everyone!

agent_krycek said...

Does anyone know, by chance, if the Shepperton Studios might have the riding stable on site, or if they had to go to another location for these sessions?

I'm not sure, it's very difficult to tell, Shepperton does have a fair bit of land, and they'd not need stables on site, just the training bit, as going by the lorries they're being 'bused' in. The only thing I do know is, it's not the riding school my house nearly backs onto - sadly :(

Loved the video and picturesthanks UV, is everyone celebrating Independence Day it's sooo quite.

Have a good day if you are.

UltraViolet said...

Hi anon - I think folks here are celebrating the holiday. Hope everyone in the States is enjoying the Fourth. And that our British friends aren't holding any grudges :)

I added two pictures of helmetless Jake to the main post. One's a slightly bigger version of a photo we've already seen. The other is new. Thanks to Gemma Arterton Online.

Happy fourth of July bablers!

Thank you for updates, UV!

Just got back from my Mom's barbeque and made a little pig of myself, I hope everyone is having a happy July 4th!

Love all the pics and video, thanks for posting! I love his look, he looks amazing.

From the blog Sexy '08 : The sexiest person ofthe week : The Statue of Liberty and this on Reese:


Curt: What celebrity do you admire most for his/her Sexy?


SoL: Oh, Reese Witherspoon. I just love how classy she is. And to me, classy is Sexy. I mean we all know that she's dating the much loved Sexpot Jake Gyllenhaal but she is keeping the details private to maintain a little honor and so that her children can grow up as normally as possible. Plus I just loved her in Election. I knew then that she'd be a big star. Hollywood would be a lot Sexier if some of those young starlets showed a little class and discretion.

Someone at the Jack Johnson concert in Hyde Park and got this picture of our favorite couple.

Hoodie in place :)

bobbyanna said...

Thank God for camera phones! That picture certainly sent the temperature backstage up a few notches...No wonder there are no PDAs. Too Hot!

OMG he's all over her in that pic. Thanks UV.

UltraViolet said...

Hey - I missed LGBarbara last night. Glad you saw the pics, Barbara!

Extra, nice blog post about Reese. I'd say the sidestage pic proves Jake agrees :)

Shondra, I'm hoping to have the BBQ experience tomorrow! Hope everyone enjoyed the day.

Another chance to win a set visit with Jake:

Organizers of next month's Possible Dreams Auction on Martha's Vineyard say the 30th anniversary event is shaping up to be extra special. The celeb-heavy soiree benefiting Martha's Vineyard Community Services will feature a performance by Jennifer Holliday - the original "Dreamgirl," get it? - and even more enticing auction items than usual. They include: A private golf lesson with Ernie Els and a week at the Masters golf tournament - both donated by SAP president Marty Homlish - a visit to the set of director Doug Liman's new movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and a day job-shadowing Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols. The event, which will be held Aug. 4 at Outerland, has raised $7.25 million over the past 29 years. "We have a lot to celebrate," said Jan Hatchard, director of Martha's Vineyard Community Services. "This is a celebration of dreams and dreamers."

UltraViolet said...

Forgot to include the auction link:

TAKE A TRIP TO THE MOON WITH DOUG LIMAN AND JAKE GYLLENHAAL…Count on gravity to keep you earthbound for an out-of-this-world VISIT TO THE SET of Bourne Director DOUG LIMAN'S upcoming untitled movie about the colonization of the moon starring the Island's own JAKE GYLLENHAAL. The Lucky Dreamer and a guest will meet Doug and Jake for a photo op, and will also receive an autographed screenplay and two tickets to the premiere.

agent_krycek said...

Loving the Jack Johnson photo - funnily enough I was reading a review of that gig on the way home last night and was wondering if J&R had been there - for some reason I could see them as fans, although, judging by that photo, I'd guess Jake was more of a Reese fan :D

Gyllenspoon weather watch - flaming dismal, wet and horrible today, not a day to go horse riding or shopping :(

And apologies for yesterday, forgot to wish all our US Babblers a happy 4th July, and hope your hangovers aren't too bad today :D

Anonymous said...

I think he's feeling Reese's breast in that picture at the concert. I remember reading something during the Brokeback Mountain promotion where Anne Hathaway revealed a story where, during their sex scene, Jake asked her if it was okay if he felt her breasts because that's what he usually does with his girlfriends. So she let him, and it ended up in the film. I guess this picture confirms Anne's story. lol.

gabbana said...

Love the pictures and the video. The horses also look beautiful - especially Gemmas.

We have to wait what the hair will really look like while filming. I hope they will not go with that "mullet" look - I remember Colin Ferrell as Alexander....*shudder*
And Jake surely loves his scruffy beard....on set he will be surely clean shaven. (Or they are going with a complete new Prince look, but I doubt it)

And we have got the first picture of our favourite couple in London -although I have to admit I feel a bit uncomfortable watching it, it is an intimate moment and should be private. Lets hope it won´t make the rounds through the net.

And the "Moon Project" sounds more and more real - for me it is so unusual for Jake being committed with a film with no script. He always has stated that the script is important for him - so it must be something else that attracts him.

I hope our US friends had a wonderful 4th of July yesterday and enjoyed some time with family and friends!

lawgoddess said...

Hey UV. :)

I've been checking GB faithfully ( I'm a Jake addict, like my fellow GBers) and have been enjoying all the pictures and comments.

Reese and Jake, wow!

suvee said...

Ay caramba! J & R have their own 4th of July fireworks going on! I guess they enjoyed themselves at the show. ;)

Thanks, UV! Once again you have shown why you are the reigning and undefeated champ when it comes to providing the latest and greatest Jake news.

agent_krycek said...

I was looking at the full set over on IheartJake, and Al Molina is in one of them, so working on the theory that Jake, Gemma and Alfred are all on horseback, the the others on horse back are more then likely featured characters - so anyone have any luck identifying them. The guy in the red isn't Navin Chowdry as I first thought, although I do know him from somewhere. There's also a guy in a white shirt who looks a bit like Simon Pegg (although I'm sure it isn't him either).

BTW, Anon 7:30 AM - you're just boring us now.

enigma said...

That picture is so beautiful.

I wonder what she's wearing. It's an interesting looking top.

Narcissa said...

Hard times for trolls I guess. Poor things.

I just googled to check when the Jack Johnson gig was - Wednesday 2nd, and noticed that Heath's pal Ben Harper was the support.

Hope our American friends had a great day yesterday.

Narcissa said...

Oh and I'm really starting to dig Reese's shorter hair do. That white dress she wore at the LA hotel lunch would not have had the same impact with longer hair draping all over it.

brothers spy said...

Good morning all. Happy holiday weekend.

Thanks for the information narcissa, maybe Reese and Jake went to the show to watch Ben Harper play and just stuck around to watch the headliner.

I've gone to concerts before just to watch an opening act.

extra said...

So it looks like J&R did have their own fireworks!!! Oh baby,they look hot, thanks so much UV!!

bobbyanna said...

Ben Harper is married to Laura Dern, of course, and I think they have remained friends over the years. Ben and Laura have some adorable kids, so it would be great to know if they all got to spend some time for a good visit.

Sorry you are having "weather" across the pond. I have a brilliant sunny day, (second in a row!) so I am going out to enjoy it! Last week was horrible!

Anonymous said...

Great picture!!! Looks like Reese might be wearing the same outfit she wore when they went out for dinner? Red sweater, black hat? Looks like she's holding the black hat, and Jake has both his arms wrapped around her, she has one hand resting on his.

paula said...

The shirt looks more purple than red to me, a bit intrusive but I'm guilty because I just love this piture!

It sounds like they are having a great time over there, love all the pics, thnaks so much and have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone!

get real said...

Hey all!

Wow love the new pics of Jake on a horse!! *swoon* There are a few that are going around the net being made fun of *insert eye roll here* but I love how he strides along looking all majestic. And his arms are looking amazing (!!!) and the hair looks good (!) Thanks for the pics and video. He seems to be having a good time in the UK. And finally the new pic of Jake and Reese at the concert (thanks UV) looking so smitten...I know it is an intimite moment but love it! Now we just need our peeps to spot him and Reese! :D

Hope everyone in the US is having a wonderful July 4th and everyone else is having a wonderful weekend.

sheba baby said...

Wow! They look so smitten and hot, thanks UV!! I was Hoping for some pictures to emerge this weekend and I wasn't disappointed.

ThankS for the link to the picture and the link to the auction, it sounds like the Untitled moon project is a go, just wish they would finally give the movie a name!

Anonymous said...

Narcissa, Bobbyanna, it's interesting to notice that Jake and Heath had some same friends. Ben Harper was Heath's business partner and friend, Heath directed a music video for Ben and Ben wrote the adorable song for Matilda. You can find it on youtube. :)

The picture of Reese and Jake is adorable. :) Great find!

Very odd non-reaction to the Jake and Reese picture erin. In the past you seemed overly concerned that they weren't spending time together,I would think you would be over the moon.

In regards to your question: color contacts.

How do you know he doesn't? I have sn pics over the years were, yes his eyes appear to change color.

It's a trick of lighting and background, like in those wet Day after tomorrow pics for EW, it sort of looks like his eyes are green. But he's not wearing color contacts.

Looks like I missed all the fun:(
Hope all babblers had a great July 4th. And you all know how much I love the hot. hot. hot. pic of Jake and his love. It's wonderful for him that he is in love with someone who totally loves him.

bobbyanna said...

sass, I agree. one of the sweetest aspects of Gyllenspoon, is that Reese is so obviously crazy in love with Jake! Jake doesn't hide his feelings well at all, so it's been a special treat to see how much she cares about him! In the past almost two years? I've seen a happier, more open side of Reese that was a wonderful surprise.

sass said...

Jake addict here cropping the Hyde Park pic and acting a fool, as me granny would say...so please forgive my silly indulgence...but I had to get up close and personal. *sass runs and hides*

Alison Krauss is making me feel happy and loving on Ovation; what a voice.

enjoy my pic of the loving couple...it's hard to see where Jake begins and Reese ends...I like that:)

I'm pondering the chances of perhaps a visit to Wimbledon today for the mens final - probably not knowing my luck, but you never know. Speaking of Wimbledon, how awesome was Venus yesterday, I think I've got a slight girl crush on her, her winning speech with Sue Barker was funny, sweet and very touching.

Anonymous said...

Love that close up thank you sass. Rufus Wainwright had a gig in London yesterday, Kenwood House, wonder if J&R went?.

agent_krycek said...

I'll be bloody annoyed if they did, cos me and OH were talking about going to it, but didn't bother getting tickets, obviously this was before I realised they'd be here for an extended period of time.

Kenwood House and it's surrounds is sooooo pretty, spent much of my childhood there. Wonder if they've still got the rather odd stuffed animal displays? It was quite a nice evening yesterday, so ideal for sitting outside watching - the classical summer concerts there were amazing, the orchestra was one side of the lake and you could just turn up, with picnic and laze around on the lawn listening - magical.

josie said...

It looks like I got wish: J&R pics for the weekend! I love it, they look so sweet and smitten, and thanks sass for making the pic even hotter!!

Hope everyone had a safe July 4th.

Strange isn't UV/FL how everyone comes here for any info you may have then either completely ignore this place or ridicule it on other blogs, Just wanted to say that and thank you for GyllenBabble and don't let the haters get to you. Please delete I just wanted to say that.

UltraViolet said...

Congratulations to Rafael Nadal. My heart was with Roger, but you can't deny the heart and spirit of the new champion. And the old.

Given the display of class and sportsmanship we've just witnessed, let's try to ignore the lame ridicule and insults. Just consider the source.

The same goes for the hypocritical and unwarranted cries of homophobia, given the sexism, misogyny and yes, homophobia regularly shown on their own lunatic blogs.

Clearly, life is tough when all you have is lies and abuse on your "side."

UltraViolet said...

Sass, thank you so much for that close up. I love it!

bobbyanna said...

Yay! Venus and Rafael!!!!
Roger played his heart out, but I am happy for Rafael. I hate it that somebody has to lose in order for someone else to win. Lot of that going around;)
(((((((UV, FL))))))) for such a fun blog! That other nonsense just gets more and more irrelevant with every passing day....IMO.

sallykirkland said...

Now that Wimbledon is over, and the Mandela 90th Birthday festivities are over, the music festivals are winding down, I fear Jake and Reese will become a focus of attention that they managed to evade for the most part. I have mixed feelings. I am looking forward to seeing more of them but I also sincerely regret the loss of privacy...in a way.

shondra said...

I just love the latest Jake and Reese picture, thanks so much UV!

I agree sally, I thinks the paps may start to stalk them now that they know where they are.

suvee said...

Wow..... what an unbelievable tennis match that was! I know it is so trite and cliche, but it really is a shame that someone had to lose. They both are perfect role models for professional athletes IMO. I've liked Rafa for quite some time now, so I'm thrilled he won!

I have neglected to thank extra for the great Sexy '08 blog. In addition to the wonderful assessment of how classy Reese is, it also has provided my new favorite description of Jake...... "much loved Sexpot". Nice! ;)

Erin said...

I almost feel bad sometimes at the paps pictures of Reese and Jake
I would never want their private life invaded, they have a right to a private life.

But that is the downside of fame and being in the public eye, when you make millions of dollars and movies the public will be interested, your in a business generated by fans

sass said...

Evening babblers,

It was a pleasure to crop and embiggen the pic found by UV for us all. *big grin* It's now my wallpaper.


I love and respect Jake so much. He marches to his very own drum...all ways. He's his own person and is always ready to step up. I fondly remember a few years back and even to this day, how many times Jake stopped to tell anyone anywhere, about BBM, about its' great love story and about how much it meant to him personally to make the movie. He's a mensch though he wouldn't call himself one.

Knowing that Jake could care less what anyone says about him, his love life, or his sexuality-- although Cantera did tell me that he is often saddened by some of the cyberspace negativity posted about him, when he's told about it by others--allows me to read any and all negative cyberspace Jake postings with a light heart, rather than the pain I felt back in October 2007. Plus, I decided to follow some advice given me few months ago, and avoid all Jake hate places, which has made all the difference.

When new sites pop up, like the site in SC and Mr. Paparazzi in the UK, both of whom couldn't resist the homophobic-speak, I think about the cut up Jake is supposed to be, and I know he could have a chuckle reading all that is written about his various poses on the gorgeous horse... plus I know location paps won't be around long, because when Jake moves on after the film is done, we will never have to read their verbiage ever again. And that is its' own reward.

I salute Jake and I pray always for him to live his life with love and happiness, because he's brought so much love and happiness to my life and my family's lie.

I'm bloody exhausted - a thrilling British Grand Prix (Go Lewis Hamilton!!!) followed by THAT tennis match (plus the Top Gear boys being extremely silly after) and I need to lie down for a week. Congratulations Venus and Rafa, although my heart was with Roger Rafa was amazing - best match ever.

I think J&R will be okay, they don't haunt the usual pap hangouts, they're unlikely to be seen falling out of bars with Amy Winehouse, it'll be the odd sighting on the street etc, rather then being stalked (I hope), I remember Tom and Nicole were relatively undisturbed when they lived here during Eyes Wide Shut's filming - British paps aren't really that bothered by happy, stable relationships - they look for dirt.

Intimate and intrusive, yes but I would be a hypocrite if I said that it didn't make me squee like a school girl and that they look soo hot!!

Thanks UV for finding it and posing it and thanks to sas for making it bigger and hotter!

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend and now it's back to work, sigh.

I wonder how long Reese is staying in the UK? Will it be just until he goes to Morocco at the end of the month or is Notting Hill his/their home base for shooting the film?

Same here, guilty and giddy is an odd combination to feel.

By the looks of the Hyde Park concert embrace, Jake isn't letting Reese return to the US anytime soon :P

Like all of you I enjoyed the photo of Jake embracing Reese, which was just fuzzy enough to engage my imagination while assuaging my voyeuristic guilt. I wasn't around for the Jake/Kiki romance but in looking at past photos of them there seems to be a lot of uninhibited PDAs and it seemed like this relationship with Reese was a lot more restrained...either due to Jake's being more mature (a man, not a boy) or also because Reese has kids and wouldn't want to expose them to massive PDAs with the new boyfriend. In any case, it's just somehow nice to see that the affection and hotness is there and that Jake really can't keep his hands off her. Go Jake, you horndog! LOLOLOL!!!

Thanks Sass for the fantastic close up of the J&R pic! I'm with you Nancy P an dAgent K in that I feel guilty and giddy at the same time looking at the pic, lol.

I also echo all the "Wow's" and say what an amazing match between Roger and Rafa. Both stunning but Rafa really pulled it out and won graciously as Roger was gracious in defeat.

Thanks for all the thanks, guys :) FKL was saying the other day that we have a pretty cool group of posters, and she's right. Good to see some delurking, as well :)

And for the new catchphrase. Giddy and guilty. I love it. I admit to it!

If this is his home, i think the paps have caught up with Jake and Reese unfortunately.

Never mind, they did. These pics show both Jake and Reese, and they are very aware.
