To the City of Light

Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon decided to leave rainy London behind for a quick trip to Paris. But more important than the trip is the absence of the Glyllenhood. Apparently the cloak of protection has been lifted, and we can finally see the Gyllenhair in all its extended glory!

Departing London:




à Paris



Ah, the Eurostar! Train travel is so romantic. Of course, this isn't Jake's first time. But yesterday, he wasn't traveling alone.



Have a great weekend, folks! Even if you're not on a train to Paris.

Man. I've now decided that Jake should keep his hair long. Forever.

Thanks for getting the post up as fast as you did, UV. :-)

agent_krycek said...

It is rather hot his hair.

Apart from being very creepy, weren't those Eurostar pictures taken just after one of the very early J&R sightings, in a resaurant in Paris (which I must admit I didn't really believe at the time) - and now they're going back :D

Mind you, we're all presuming Paris, they might just be on a quick jaunt for some duty free booze in Calais ;-)

bobbyanna said...

O.M.G. Yeah. I think Jake is wicked sexy!!!!! Thanks to all for these delicious pictures. In her previous life, Reese must have been, like, this really good person.

Monica said...

AWWWWWWWWWWWWW
Finally he showed the hair!
It was better than expected! It was sexy!

Reese is so chic!

Erin said...

Perhaps he shall propose in Paris??

The mind wonders..

I hope we get some pictures of them by the Eiffel Tower!!!!!

Remember how romantic the Italy pictures were

Paris.. Oh Paris Reese and Jake

Happy Friday everyone

ShyLock said...

Who is the guy next to Jake in the third and fourth picture?
Could it be his best friend Chris Fischer, who is a chef?

FluorescentLamp said...

Fellow traveler on Eurostar?

That's not Chris.

Erin said...

Maybe a kiss by the Eiffel Tower at night, or a kiss on top of the Eiffel Tower at night!

Paris is the most romantic city in the world no?

I hope they really are in Paris

UltraViolet said...

Agent K, I did consider the possibility they were going somewhere in the French countryside, but my romantic heart insisted on going with the Paris theme.

Yes, Erin, it is the most romantic city in the world. With the exception of Venice, perhaps. I'm sure if they are in Paris, they'll be swept up.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, Bobbyanna, are you channeling your inner Bostonian. Because Jake IS wicked sexy in these pics.

sass said...

WOW! Jake was hiding this beautiful hair. OMG! TY UV, FL, I've been rescued from an unbelievably bad day by these gorgeous pics of Jake and his lovely Reese and they're back in Paris...*sigh*...the most romantic city in the world.
xoxoxo

sass said...

I'm overwhelmed with the Jakeness this morning. Jake is, how you say, Mad Sexy in his longer hair. TY again. I went over for larger pics but I see the pics haven't reached www.iheartjake.com yet...Fl UV you both rock!

extra said...

I hope they are in Paris too!!!Love his hair, it's so sexy!

If not Paris did anyone consider Euro Disney? I know the kids are not seen here but what if she sent them and the nanny ahead of them?

agent_krycek said...

I was wondering about Euro Disney as well (I was joking about Calias for the duty free :D ) - maybe a quick stop in Paris for the night without the kids, and then link up for the full weekend at Disney.

(Great how we're planning their break for them :p )

Man, I am so digging that hair

UltraViolet said...

Man. I've now decided that Jake should keep his hair long. Forever.

I don't know if I'll go that far, but I'm shocked at how much I like it. I like it a lot!

Thanks for getting the post up as fast as you did

What's a day off for? Some people go to Paris, other people post pictures of them :)

FluorescentLamp said...

I think the kids might be with the nanny at Butlins. Hee.

I think you may have to be English or know someone English to totally appreciate that. ;-)

UltraViolet said...

{{{Sass}}} I hope your day gets better and better.

And EuroDisney? La, la, la, I can't hear you.

agent_krycek said...

I get it FL :D if the kids are at Butlins then they must have done something very, very bad indeed :o

You've given me a scarey flashback to Butlins in Skegness many moons ago - I have never been more cold, more uncomfortable and more miserable on a holiday before or since, and I've camped in the pouring rain in Scotland (and no one does rain quite like Scotland)

chica said...

I hope your day improves {{{Sass}}}.

I was on the Eurostar several years ago, a day trip from London to Paris. It wasn't long enough for me but i'm sure they will have plenty of time to explore Paris!!

I'm really loving his look, real or not!

sass said...

{{{{OK you two and babblers all}}}}
I discovered a new gossip site, LoveBeScott with his cute Reese and her piece of Jake pics......He's a hoot. Then I lafed my ass off at his Youtube advice videos...next I Googled Butlins and Calais.
Calais looks like a place I'd love to visit but please tell me about Butlins and why it would not be the place for fun and games for the kiddos.

bobbyanna said...

"...I'm shocked at how much I like it. I like it a lot!"

Ditto, UV.

"wicked sexy" just fits, you know?
I think what gives me goosebumps is that he looks so absolutely uninhibited, like he is up for just about anything. He seems loose. In a good way. He even has a sort of roguish smile. (Sigh. I'm writing the screenplay as I type this.;) )

bobbyanna said...

Sorry to spam. Oh, sass. I went to the Butlins site, too. I saw that big purple Barney, in the advert. I couldn't do that to a kid...not Barney. (apologies to Barney lovers.)

agent_krycek said...

I'd love to visit but please tell me about Butlins and why it would not be the place for fun and games for the kiddos.

Imagine Disneyland built on a budget of £3.50 and using the shoddiest builders possible, the cheapest possible materials and having all the charm of a bad case of athletes foot - and you're sort of getting there. If anyone's ever seen Father Ted and when the fair came to Craggy Island you'll know what I'm getting at. (I do concede it may have improved since I was there, but wild horses wouldn't get me over the threshold of one again - mentally scarred I was)

sass said...

OMG Agent_K!
I'm in my apt in NYC, in my bed, lMBAO. Can you here me over there in the UK...:lol:lol:lol:lol:lol
Gyllenbabble the gift that keeps on giving...TY

Lemon said...

Ah Paris, je t'aime

I've spent many a day and night hanging out by the Seine. Though romantic is the last word I think of when Paris is mentioned (the result of living there and experiencing the whole shebang). At least Paris is more interesting that Calais.

Apparently Reese takes the wee ones to Disneyland every year around the time of Ava’s birthday. So here's hoping they enjoy true Paris, if that is where they've gone.

And yes yes to Jake's new hair. Very yummy indeed ;)

shondra said...

Jake's hair is yummy indeed! France, maybe Paris??? I'm so jealous, thanks for posting these pictures so quick!

Vicky said...

More pics at Just Jared

Anonymous said...

You can see his hair a lot better in these ones.

Love tha JJ says "Jake leads his family....."

Erin said...

The kids, a body guard, and a nanny?

extra said...

Yes you can see ,more of his hair in these pictures, and ai had a feeling the kids were with them.


"Jake leads his family... I caught that too!

josie said...

The BG has been with Reese and the kids in the UK, the nanny is for when Jake and Reese want to spend some time alone together like when they went to Cabo.

Yeah, I bet they hit EuroDisney as well as a few romantic getaways.

Jake leads his family... sigh.

I don't think Jared made a mistake because it has become clear that they are a family.

PS: I love his hair, it looks more under control in these pictures. I hope they enjoy there little vacation.

Erin said...

Ava holing that bear, so cute!
she is looking very grown up

I love her quilt purse to!

Jake took on the "family role" very well, I am so proud of him :P

That mature family man type is sexy

UltraViolet said...

Posted a coupe of cropped versions of the Jared pics. The whole family looks great :)

And I know Jake is beautiful, but doesn't anyone like my shot of Paris??? :(

Okay, it's not mine, I found it on the internets. But still.

Erin said...

Don't shoot me for this, I feel bad for Ryan

If this is now "Jakes family", and it is obvious Jake is kinda taking over
where does that leave Ryan??

UltraViolet said...

Erin, there's no need to worry about Ryan. His place as Ava and Deacon's father is secure. And that will be the end of this discussion. This is not the place for it.

FluorescentLamp said...

LOL, who can see your Paris pic for all the beauty that is Jake with long fake hair on this blog post!

Yes yes, it's a lovely, atmospheric photo of the City of Light.

But DUDE, check out Jake with the long hair! Oh yeaaaaah!

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, FL. I think :)

sass said...

We're having a Jake Explosion...and they ARE family....*sigh*
I can't imagine Reese without her lil ones and this BG have been with since last October when they surfaced in Rome. I hope they have loads of fun and we get lots of fun pics...
hugs and more hugs,
sass

Erin said...

The fact that Jake is such a role model and good guy to the kids, this makes Jake even more attractive.

I am sure the kids adore him, and he is the best "step boyfriend" anyone could ask for

UltraViolet said...

Have we seen the sunburst t-shirt before? I like it.

Erin said...

I wonder if that is a new nanny?
Or the same nanny she uses in LA and on the Mexico trip

I know she doesn't normally use a nanny too much

sheba baby said...

He looks so hot with that hair, and I love the whole familything, makes him even more hotter!

sass said...

UV, I've never seen the sunburst shirt, ever. LORDY!
Damn, he's a fine furrowed brow long haired family man.
squeeeeee:)
Reese has got herself a long-legged man....puts me in mind of lyrics in a song at the end WTL sung by June and Johnny Cash "long-legged guitar picking man.":)

Lemon said...

Hey! I noticed the Paris pic UV. Hence my mention of the Seine. Anyway, July is a good time to be in Paris. There are a lot of jazz concerts and music festivals. It’s Bastille Day on Monday (parades and fireworks). And let’s not forget the Tour de France.

Jake is really starting to look the part for POP. He's beefed up a lot.

UltraViolet said...

Glad you noticed the pic, Lemon! I've spent some time in Paris but never lived there. Someday... :)

Narcissa said...

***ded***

Bette said...

I LOVE THE HAIR! I didn't expect to like it, but I really do. I can't wait to see it down now, fully down, and straightened for the role. Sexy!

As for the pics, awww, it's nice to see them all out. I hope we get some pics of them out together in Paris, I've always wanted to see pics of them all happy out together. All the pics so far of Jake with the kids he's clearly uncomfortable with them taking pics of the kids.

xxMariexx said...

Ugh, JustJared isn't working right now, so I can't see the pictures of Jake leading the Witherspoons :( Is anybody else having a problem with the site?

UltraViolet said...

Three of the photos are in the main post, Marie. They are also here.

Also, JustJared works fine for me. Maybe try again of you want to see them there.

UltraViolet said...

Good to see everyone checking in :)

The hair comes out and so do the squees. Not that any of us would squee. We're too dignified.

bobbyanna said...

The teddy bear is a give away! IMHO, I think this might be a week long vacation, before getting ready to go home. Then Jake heads for Morocco and Reese joins him.
There. We have it all planned out, complete with trip to EuroDisney.
Bet they get in free, too, bcz Jake is a Disney employee! ;) ;)

(Damn he is just impossibly sexy. How does she stand it!)

Erin said...

I was worried she wouldn't go to Morocco with him
but now I think different, there is no way they will stand to be apart

squee..... for a family/romantic trip to Paris
and a nanny for the adult night fun :P

UltraViolet said...

Bet they get in free, too, bcz Jake is a Disney employee!

Okay, that really did make me laugh out loud!

Bette said...

I just realized I repeated myself quite a bit in my last comment. Oops! Anyway, I wanted to add that I too can't get JJ to load pictures. I was thinking it may be a firefox issue since others have said it works for them. I can't wait until Steph comes around, and uploads the pics, maybe I'll just have to see all of them then.

UltraViolet said...

Do you all have something against the Gossip Girls or are you just obsessed with Just Jared? LOL. The pictures are exactly the same, just that JJ crops and then enlarges some of them, making them blurry.

Thre are also in the post here :)

chica said...

And don't forget bobbyanna, Reese just finished doing voice work for Monsters vs Aliens, isn't that a Disney/Pixar movie??

enigma said...

Monsters vs. Aliens is a Dreamworks Animation project.

I think Jake looks great with the long hair.

chica said...

Thanks for the corection enigma!

He looks grungy/sexy in these pictures.

Nailed update:


CEO Stuart Ford has bought out beleaguered financier David Bergstein's minority stake in the foreign sales and distribution company IM Global. The deal was closed several weeks ago, sources say. Ford was on vacation and had no comment.

Aramid Entertainment Fund and Screen Capital Intl. financed the transaction, acting as IM Global's bank. Ford bought out Bergstein's shares.

Meanwhile, the troubled project "Nailed," which was shut down four times for not being able to meet its payroll, wrapped production last week. IM Global was selling rights to the Bergstein-financed picture at this May's Cannes Film Festival. It is unclear whether Global will continue to sell the David O. Russell pic, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal.

I hope jake, Reese and the kids enjoy there Paris getaway, i'm jealous!! Almost didn't recognize, Jake, he looks a little bit like Jared Leto.

get real said...

SWOON!!!! OMG loving the hair! He is lookin' the sex here...thud! Love seeing them together, with kids, headed for Paris...sigh. These pics sure put a smile on my facem :D

Xoxo everyone

bobbyanna said...

"Almost didn't recognize, Jake, he looks a little bit like Jared Leto."
I confess to a dalliance with Jared...but then I found Jake. He owns me.

I am going out, later, with some friends, to see the Hunter S. Thompson documentary. Maybe listening to Johnny Depp talk for two hours will help erase the momeries of these pictures. I hope I can get a few hours respite...Sh**! I can't even spell...memories. Yeah.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the Nailed update, SAG actor. Fingers crossed we get to see it someday!

Hey, get real - swoonworthy stuff, isn't it?

And Bobbyanna, enjoy the documentary. Do you want to erase the pics? So you can think of something else?

And I loved JAred Leto back in the Jordan Catalano days.

IHJ has the pictures - posted some new ones just now.
