I thought you said TAGLINES...

...not tagines.

With Prince of Persia filming in Morocco and Disney pushing it back so they can better market it, what better time to take a look at the history of Jake Gyllenhaal tag(l)ines.

Sometimes one dream is enough to light up the whole sky ~ October Sky


Life is one long insane trip. Some people just have better directions ~ Donne Darko


A journey of 2,755.8 miles begins with a single bounce ~ Bubble Boy



If you're hoping for the perfect family don't hold your breath ~ Lovely and Amazing



It's her last best chance... is she going to take it? ~ Good Girl



It started as a desperate escape and became the wildest ride of their lives ~ Highway


In life and love, expect the unexpected ~ Moonlight Mile



Nature has spoken ~ TDAT


Love Is A Force Of Nature
~ Brokeback Mountain



The biggest risk in life is not taking one ~ Proof



Welcome To The Suck ~ Jarhead


There's more than one way to lose your life to a killer ~ Zodiac


What if someone you love...just disappeared? ~ Rendition




EDIT by FL: Whoops! Oh my. We seem to have gotten our wires crossed! This is what happens when you have too (two?) many cooks stirring the tagine!

To address the anon's concern late in the previous post's comments regarding an error message and an abort when trying to open GyllenBabble in I.E. - this seems to be something going on with Blogger and I.E. and not this particular blog. My advice is to continue to use FireFox for the rest of your life. :-)

Also, I now totally understand Jake when he said the tagine experience was "intense". I think he was being kind. I would have used - vile.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for checking out that IE error, FL. The mysterious ways of Blogger...

I love, love, love these tagine photos. I think my favorites are the Donnie Darko and Lovely&Amazing ones.

And the clip - perfect!

Maybe Disney has ponied up the dough for a personal chef so Jake doesn't have to do the tagine routine again.

Vicky said...

Great post FL, since this post came up I have been unable to read it through IE as well. I am also unable to access IHJ through IE very strange.

Monica said...

Hello, Babblers!
Great post FL. I am anxious to see a picture of Jake in Morocco!

Vicki, I also can not access hi heart jake by IE!

bobbyanna said...

Hi! I'm finally back in, too. I was also experiencing problems getting in to Gyllenbabble. "IE cannot open this site, etc." I had no problem with other blogspot sites, including my own, but I did have problems with two other websites, in general.

I think not having enough memory might be part of the problem, so my computer's acting up, and/or IE is acting up. Or both. I just don't know. I just deleted a bunch of stuff and right now everything seems OK. I'm glad I wasn't the only one having problems with it.

I was afraid I might miss the wedding!!!;)

As i think of it, after PoP comes out, and it's a HUGE hit, when they shoot the next two, they will probably do it back to back so Jake will keep his hair extensions a lot longer.

chica said...

Everything is back to normal with my PC, boy was that annoying!

Love all the taglines, BBM & Jarhead are my favs.

bobbyanna said...

I've just spent some time deleting old e-mails (from 2005!) and in my documents, and my photos I deleted quite a bit. Yes. Even Jake. Seems I had duplicates and triplicates of Jake. Anyway, things are going much, much better. Faster, too.

brothers spy said...

I got the IE error as well. It was very strange. I got it on several other sites as well including Nikke Finke's site.

I thought it was my computer as I discovered yesterday that I got a virus somehow. But i'm glad it was everyone's IE and not just mine.

In any case in seems to be working now.

Anyway I actually have an update regarding Prince of Persia...

According to my source filming will go on until September 12 in Morocco.

He gave me dates and locations but I can't remember them and it doesn't seem that important other than to say that they are filming in several different locations up until August 11 when they move to the Atlas Studios in Ouzaratte (or however it's spelled).

FL, that's probably why they won't recieve visitors until then.

Jake is done filming in Morocco one week before everyone else (around September 5), because they are shooting scenes involving "the villains" in that final week.

FL, that would also correspond with what your source told you.

They're not expected to begin filming in England until the beginning of October, thus Jake will get about a month off at that point.

That's all I have really. I think my source is beginning to open up a little bit more, but he won't give me spoilers so you need not worry UV. I couldn't spoil even if I wanted to.

All I know is that Jake is doing well and the shoot is going extremely well.

Have a good weekend everyone, i'm not sure if i'll be around too much this weekend. I'm going up to my cousins cottage for the long weekend (and my last weekend off before I go back to work).

I'll check in on Monday or Tuesday. I just wanted to share the information I have.

FluorescentLamp said...

Thanks, brother's spy!

Too bad you can't remember filming locations - I'm all about geography. Plus, it will help with future travelogue blog posts. ;-)

And don't forget, if you want to share those spoilers, we do have another blog exactly for that reason.

So moving to Atlas in Ouarzazate after August 11th. Jake finishes his portion of Morocco filming around September 5th. Cast relocates to Shepperton in October. Damn my timing is all off. :-(

Have a good holiday at the cottage.

Okay, so word on the interwebs is that Site Meter is the culprit that caused the IE problems last night. And not just with Blogger. People with Typepad blogs suffered the same problems when trying to open in I.E. Someone on another blog made an interesting comment about this situation - that Site Meter could virtually bring down Internet Explorer. Well not exactly, but the number of websites and blogs that use Site Meter as a statistics counter is in the hundreds of thousands.

suvee said...

Thanks for the great PoP update, brothers spy. Yes, England in October does sound lovely...... too bad I won't be there!

Thanks also to Monica for the Reese sighting link. Her clothes and her new "style" sure are getting a lot of coverage. The new UsWeekly has a 2 page spread featuring her new, edgy look. She does look fabulous these days IMO. Clearly, she's a happy and confident woman. :)

Very nice post, FL...... I like the "Travels with Jake" theme..... both fun and educational!

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for checking around the "internets" FL! ;) My poor, elderly computer was beginning to feel self-conscious!

borthers spy, outstanding information!!!!! TIFF starts Thursday,September 4th. Maybe Sheridan can try to arrange a TIFF screening for the 6th or 7th.
Festivals usually have the final say about screenings, but they do try to accomodate if they can. They do benefit from having the actors show up!!!

sheba baby said...

Thanks brothers spy for the Pop update, fingers crossed for a screening of Brothers at TIFF.

Great post and taglines, love the BB tagline a very underrated movie IMO.

Boy was I going crazy trying to access this blog and some other blogs, glad to see the problem seems to solved, well for me anyway!

Thanks to the Reese and Ava link and i saw the Us fashion spread of Reese too!

suvee said...

I swear, I must have been hallucinating. I could have sworn I read this post was by FL. (Maybe it was some kind of sympathetic Moroccan toad symptom.) Sorry, UV!

lawgoddess said...

I vote for Firefox too. :)

Suvee, I thought I remembered the post was by FL too. And UV doesn't usually praise her own posts. Odd.:)

I watched the video clip twice, purely in the interests of research, and Jake mispronounces tagine. He says tan-jean, not tuh-jean. Cute.:)

I've never had Moroccan food, but the tagines are beautiful.

Narcissa aka Firefox fan said...

Deafmer speaks for All Of Us:

[quote]The Prince of Persia, Disney's Bruckheimerian take on the popular video game series starring Jake Gyllenhaal as the shirtless, saber-wielding warrior, has been delayed by a full year. Excuse us for one moment, will you? THERE IS. NOOO. GODDDD!!!! OK! Back![/quote]

Funny.

Consider the source:


Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon is to marry Jake Gyllenhaal at Christmas.

Brokeback Mountain star Gyllenhaal, 27, has told friends he and Reese, 32 – who won Best Actress for Walk The Line – plan to wed on or around his birthday on December 19 after he finishes his new film, Prince Of Persia.

A source on the set of the £100million epic adventure, currently filming in Morocco, said: ‘Jake is telling everyone they are getting married at Christmas.

‘He told me he had proposed several times but she kept telling him she wanted to give their relationship more time. When he asked her again a couple of weeks ago, she finally said yes.’

Reese, who has two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, met Gyllenhaal in 2006 while filming the thriller Rendition.

Bette said...

There could be some truth to this, we are still on ring!watch after all. His birthday would be weird though, wouldn't it? Oh hey are anniversary, and your birthday honey. I guess it would save Jake from having to remember the date though.

But Narcissa, I agree with Defamer completely.

UltraViolet said...

Au contraire, LG, I always praise my own posts - just in my head :)

FL was the one who found the pictures of the tagines. Note the last-minute "edit."

(BTW, I'm totally with Jake - there should be an "n" in there before the "g.")

Glad the problems are fixed for everyone.

And thanks, brothers spy, for the PoP info. I'd love to know the filming locations, as well.

As for the Daily Mail story, all I can say is that Christmas on the Vineyard will be very cold and inconvenient!

Off to see TDK. See you all later!

FluorescentLamp said...

As for the Daily Mail story, all I can say is that Christmas on the Vineyard will be very cold and inconvenient!

However, the average temperature for Ojai in December is 52.6 degrees, with highs of 69F and lows of 36F.

I can almost hear the firewood crackling and snapping in the cool December air.

suvee said...

Okay, I might have to abandon my hope for a MV wedding..... but I have to admit that I can imagine how absolutely beautiful a December wedding at the Ojai ranch would be. :)

And no, I don't think we will ever see formal pictures of it. I keep thinking of that one photo of JFK Jr's wedding....... I think that's what we will see of J & R's wedding..... one or two candid shots that get leaked. No way will it be a TomKat media production.

josie said...

Glad that i can access one of my favorite blogs again! Thanks for your latest Pop update brothers spy, enjoy your time at the cottage!

Love all the taglines, BBM being my favorite.

Another marriage/engagement story only this time they say she said yes... RING ALERT!LOL!!

FluorescentLamp said...

I keep thinking of that one photo of JFK Jr's wedding

And such an iconic picture that was. She set the tone and style for the slip dress cut on a bias for brides-to-be for many years after.

bobbyanna said...

A rumored wedding around his birthday is pretty believable! My personal theory is, she said yes a while ago. Im thinking about the fact we're seeing pics of all four of them as a family unit. They seem to have gradually become more "public" as a family.

I found the photo of all four of them out walking, all very subdued, in January, very touching.
They were there for him.

Last year, it was Jake and Reese in Paris,then Rome. Reports of them in San Francisco and Napa, and, of course, New York.

This year, it's Mexico,and London, with the kids. London was very significant, bcz they set up house.They aren't hiding from all the chatter about living together, or marriage or babies either.

So yeah. I think soon. Maybe within the next six months. Maybe Reese asked him what he wanted for his birthday, and he said, "Marry me!" How could she not!!!;)(sigh!)

legally brunette said...

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I've heard about this blog but never checked it before.

The turth is I could never find enough support online because I geniunely believe in Jake and Reese. I've been Jake's fan for many years. On many forums and blogs I got offended or shouted at if I dared to mention they were for real, they would get married,etc. As you probably know there is a handful of people out there who hate Reese for many reasons. I stopped commenting a long time ago and decided to wait them out and see when they're going to shut up because eventually they will. And a couple of days I remembered somebody mentioning this blog, so I came here, read the posts, etc. From what I can see we share our views on Gyllenspoon. You'll probably see me around from time to time:)

gabbana said...

Thanks for the updates and informations, Brothers Spy. Fingers crossed that Jake will get the time and a reason to attend at the TIFF......

It is good to know that BS and FL have some sources so we get some tidbits from time to time. Otherwise there won´t be much information from the set.

"Jake is telling everyone they are getting married at Christmas"

Jake usually does not speak about his private life - and now he starts telling everyone on a movie set that he will be getting married? Sorry, but I have difficulties in believing this.

I am with those who think if they will get married this will be a private affair and perhaps a small confirmation from their people afterwards.

Lets hope "Nailed" will find a distributor and get realeased in 2009 otherwise with the PoP delay we won´t see him on the big screen for a long time....

Someone asked about Reeses schedule - from what I have read filming her comedy with Ben Stiller will be starting in January.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I agree with you gabbana. I doubt that Jake was blabbing about wedding plans on the set, i do believe that when it happens that it will be private.

Fingers crossed for Brothers at TIFF too!

And thanks bs & fl for all your inside info regarding Pop!

The GG tagline reminded me that I really loved that movie.

bobbyanna said...

I don't think Jake is saying anything either. I just think it's very plausible it will happen.

suvee said...

Oh, I don't for one minute believe that Jake is blabbing to all and sundry at PoP about his wedding plans. It's just fun to imagine what that wedding might look like (if and when it happens)!

Hi to legally brunette! Hope you feel comfortable posting here...... this is truly a Gyllenspoon friendly site. :)

Reese's publists denies the engagement rumor:

http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2008/08/03/2008-08-03_are_reese_witherspoon_and_jake_gyllenhaa-1.html

Bette said...

They are back to denying the engagement rumors again? Sometimes I really think their reps should probably just not say anything.

brothers spy said...

Hey you guys, i'm back from my weekend...

I didn't realize that you wanted to know the cities they were filming in. I wrote them down, I just didn't include them last time because I didn't think you'd be interested.

I'm not sure when they filmed where, but I do have the order of the cities they filmed at.

BTW, there was a break in production for four days between July 25th and July 28th. My source doesn't know if Jake went back to America or not, but he definitely wasn't filming that weekend. (So, although I can't prove it, this seems to strongly suggest that Jake was in America that weekend. Maybe Bruckheimer lent his personal jet to those who flew back to CA for the Comic-con and Jake hitched a ride. In any case, all I know for certain is: Jake didn't have to work that weekend; Reese was no where to be found that weekend, despite being photographed in the days before and after; People Magazine has a sighting of them together at the Polo Lounge. Infer what you will).

Filming did begin on July 22, but it was limited (not sure why or what he meant by that). They filmed for three days (22, 23, 24), took the break and then resumed filming on July 29 and have been filming everyday since.

FL, maybe the 31st was the day your source/friend began to film his scenes. That would make sense if it is who I think it is, or he does what I think he does.

They began shooting in the mountains, at some ski resort. They were only there for a couple of days. Then they moved to Bu Izergard (on the 29th, I think), where apparently they filmed extremely long hours (one day filming until 2AM).

Right now they are filming in Sidi Hutman and then will move to Tansloth at the end of this week.

They worked this entire past weekend, but are expected to have next weekend off.

Then on August 11th, as I already wrote, they will be filming at "Atlas Studios" in Ouarzazat for the remainder of the production in Morocco.

Disclaimer: i'm not sure if any of the city names are correct, since I have never heard of any of them. My source expressed to me that he wasn't sure if the spelling of any of them were correct either. So when looking them up, allow for liberal variations of those names.

sass said...

Evening babblers,
Welcome back brothers spy:)
You know I totally agree with you Bette about them saying nothing about this situation, but the engagement/marriage rumors have taken off like wildfire: my mailbox was filled with nearly 442987649427 engagement/marriage alerts this morning.:lol :lol

Anonymous said...

If they were already married, then the publicist would be telling the truth...about them not being engaged. LOL!

shondra said...

Thanks for your latest update on Pop BS, your information along with FL have been great!!!

I doubt Jake is going around telling cast his marriage plans. I do think they will marry eventually. At least this time Reese's PR has said no, this rumor is spreading like wildfire!

Narcissa said...

Much of "Jaws" was filmed around MV: it looks great. Jake has said it is his favourite place on earth, so he should definitely marry there. :)

UltraViolet said...

Reese and Jake: We Are Not Engaged:

Reps for Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal are denying tabloid reports that the couple are engaged.

"They are not engaged, getting married or any of the reports," the reps tell PEOPLE exclusively, calling the reports "lies."

Witherspoon, 32 and Gyllenhaal, 27, began quietly dating in April 2007. They recently were seen together in Paris with Witherspoon's kids.


Even though I knew they'd deny it, it still kind of makes me sad whenever I read the official denials!

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the PoP filming locations, brothers spy. This will help us keep track of things :)

If they were already married, then the publicist would be telling the truth...about them not being engaged.

Ha - good thinking, anon.

And ITA on the Martha's Vineyard angle, narcissa. Fall in the Vineyard would be beautiful!

Oh, and welcome, Legally Brunette!

I consider People an official source and reps for both have denied the rumors:

Not that I believed the Daily Mirror online anyway!!!

What made this story different then the other rumors was that she said yes and they actually had a time frame, when that happens then the repshave to speakup.

extra said...

Sorry UV!! You can delete.

And thanks so much for that very detailed Pop location filming report!

Bette said...

UV you hit the nail right on the head, at this point, they've been together what? Sixteen months? They've been possibly close friends for two years now. We see all these photos of them truly looking at each other like two people very deeply in love, and you wonder, why aren't they? I love that they are taking their time, but it's obvious Jake is living with her in LA, or almost living with her. Her kids love Jake. He seems to be content, so does she. I understand she was hurt by her divorce, that her husband cheated on her, but at some point, I would think she'd want more. Specially considering the fact that we know Jake has "found the right woman", or however that quote goes of his. That's more than obvious.

UltraViolet said...

It' actually not that I think they should be engaged, it's just that the denials always make the idea of it sound so wrong. Calling the report "lies" just makes it seem like they're horrified by the idea.

I know that's not true, and they could even really be engaged. just ish they'd just say "No, it's not true." Not "No, no, no! Lies, lies, lies!"

I don't know if that makes sense.

I understand them wanting to take their time, if that's really what's happening. Though if they are living together, as you said, Bette, it seems like an engagement is just around the corner.

paula said...

I think maybe the lies thing comes from the original "story". It sounded like Jake, while filming a potential blockbuster film is going around telling cast and crew about his wedding plans. As much as i enjoyed the speculation for the past 24 hours I knew that it was BS. It made him sound like he was hounding her.

BTW, the fact that the moving in stories which included the Us front page wasn't denied means that that story is true or they would have denied that too. This story would have been really been blown out of proportion with paps chasing down Reese looking for a ring if the reps didn't make a statement.

I do believe they will eventually marry, but they will take their time.

Thanks so much for your updates bs!!

UltraViolet said...

True, Paula. I like the idea of them disavowing the idea that Jake just keeps asking Reese to marry him. I'm not too fond of that narrative.

This, too, like everything, will blow over. But some new pics of Jake would really distract me!

bobbyanna said...

Even People likes to "spin" stuff, UV. I'm inclined to agree with Paula. I think the "lies" part is about Jake allegedly telling everyone on set they'll be getting married around time of his B'day. I think most of us can agree that Jake did no such thing. That much is a lie!

I think this might be more about the other people in their lives. Consider that in both extended families, there might be relatives calling J&R's parents, siblings, etc. all excited about some rumors out here, agitated and excited about what they've heard or read, Jake and Reese had to issue a joint statement. It wouldn't look right for either of them to issue it individually.

I still think they are going to get married and I'd bet it will most likely be in the next six months. Maybe they haven't had the "family sitdown" yet.;)

Remember lonnnng ago, when a lot of people didn't believe they were together, and they went out of their way to pretend they weren't dating...I believed!! And I wasn't the only one!;) ;) ;)

Yes it makes perfect sense, and very accurately sums up the way I felt about the way people acted like rumours Jake was gay was a horrible lie. Its not that people just didn't happen to think it was true, its that they defended his heterosexuality like being gay was a terrible thing.

brothers spy said...

I think the fact that they denied this story pretty much confirms that they are living together doesn't it?

After all that story was all over the place as well, and there were no denials.

For the record, I never believed the Daily Mail story. I too believe it was completely made up and was surprised it spread as far as it did.

BTW, on a related note, Perez Hilton really seems to want Jake and Reese to get married. Next to Brangelina, Gyllenspoon seems to be his favorite couple.

anon,

I think you're being overly sensitive here. I don't think anyone was repulsed by the idea of Jake being gay. But the fact is that he has always denied that as well and a small group of people just never accepted those denials, despite the fact that there was never any evidence to the contrary, only wishful thinking on the part of people making the claim.

If people here went out and repeatedly called Jake a liar, as the small number of people who think/thought he is gay do, and continued to say that he and Reese were engaged (despite all their denials) and used this questionable source as their only "evidence." Not because it is true, mind you, but because they want it to be true. Then I think the majority of people here, and elsewhere, would think just as negatively about those people as they do about the people you mention.

UltraViolet said...

Its not that people just didn't happen to think it was true, its that they defended his heterosexuality like being gay was a terrible thing.

No one here has ever done that, anon. It's the canard the haters like to throw out there. If you believe Jake is straight, then you are, ipso facto, a homophobe. If you believe he's really in love with Reese; you're some kind of rabid fangirl, who hates the idea of Jake or anyone else being gay.

That fallacious reasoning doesn't fly here. Or anyplace else where logic is respected.

I continue to laugh at the moral outrage of the haters, who make misogynistic slam after sexist slam about Reese, and who use gay stereotypes to mock Jake because he won't do what they want him to do. Then turn around and accuse any dissenters of being homophobes.

Try selling it somewhere else.

I think there will be many here who despite the denial will still believe they are engaged, and I doubt anyone would really care or feel offended by the idea.

Clearly there's extremist thinking on both sides and some people go too far in their "retaliations". I don't think people thinking Jake is straight means they are homophobic anymore than I think people thinking he is gay means they disrespect him or question his integrity.

And I'm not trying to sell anything, I just wanted to explain the similarity in the way you felt about the vehemence of that denial to how I've felt in the past.

UltraViolet said...

You can't actually be serious. I'm sure if I went to one or two blogs that I assume you frequent, that they'd be full of mockery of those who believe J&R are engaged and chock-full of derision at the very idea.

I'm not sure what sort of make-believe world you live in, where the only people making offending comments are people who think Jake is straight. The fact is that the daily doses of vitriol, venom and ugliness are not found here. They are found in places where people think, or pretend that they think, that Jake is gay.

That ugliness is aimed at Jake, in scary amounts at Reese and in endless jabs at people who post here. Not at the lurkers, of course, since so many of the haters themselves lurk here for news and photos.

I don't think people thinking Jake is straight means they are homophobic anymore than I think people thinking he is gay means they disrespect him or question his integrity.

Thinking Jake is gay doesn't mean you disrespect him. Posting endlessly about how his relationship is just a sham, how he'll do anything to be a star, how he's controlled by his PR and by Reese, how he has no integrity or conviction or self-will: THAT is disrespecting him.

And that is the kind of argument engaged in on other sites. Have you visited them lately to let them know how their posts make you feel?

And I'm not trying to sell anything, I just wanted to explain the similarity in the way you felt about the vehemence of that denial to how I've felt in the past.

That would make sense, anon, if THIS were a place where anyone has ever done or said anything like the things you're objecting to. But we haven't. In fact, I hear more complaints about that kind of behavior than I have ever seen actual examples of it.

In addition, you're making more of my post than was intended. This wasn't a deep, personal hurt I felt, It just bummed me out - for a minute.

Finally, all of this wouldn't be so suspect if you'd used a name and ever commented on anything on this blog before.

Popping in to try to spin an isolated comment is the mark of a troll, no matter how polite.

Xenia said...

It's not thinking that Jake is gay or straight the problem here anon. The problem is thinking that Jake is a liar, that Jake are making up things, involving more than one person in this 'lie', involving a woman, her kids, his family, his friends...this is unaccettable. I see no logic in making a movie that breaks more than a rule in Hollywood golden world and then denying the truth in such a vile way. That is my own opinion, of course.
As for J&R denying
their 'engagement', well...what we're doing here is 'speculating for fun', right? Well they are fully entitled to defend their privacy, maybe there is nothing 'official' yet, maybe they want us all to stay out of their business, but we are entitled to keep on speculating and having fun...:)

Have a great day everyone, and thanks for all the news and updates. I love you. :*

Catching up here, my home computer is very unwell at the moment, but firstly thanks for the PoP updates - he's back in the UK at the beginning of October - just in time for my birthday - drop me an email Jake and I'll tell you where to turn up to buy me a drink ;-)

London can be beautiful in the Autumn/Winter season, but it can also be extremely wet and dismal (mind you, it can be that in the Spring/Summer as well).

Re engagement stuff. I've a feeling they might be getting engaged but, if the rumours about Maggie and Peter marrying soon are right, they're holding fire doing it officially, and letting M&P have the 'limelight' in the lead up to their wedding (By Limelight I mean within the family/friends, not that they'll be letting the media know anything if they can help it)

Xenia, thanks for that comment - you summed things up beautifully.

And Agent K, I hope your computer is fixed soon. There's a wedding afoot, you know ;)

"Thinking Jake is gay doesn't mean you disrespect him. Posting endlessly about how his relationship is just a sham, how he'll do anything to be a star, how he's controlled by his PR and by Reese, how he has no integrity or conviction or self-will: THAT is disrespecting him."

I've never said anything like that about Jake. Nor do I think there is anything wrong with not telling people things they may use to hurt you. Jake is his own person and the only one who lives with the consequences of his decisions. Who am I to decide anything for him.

"It's not thinking that Jake is gay or straight the problem here anon. The problem is thinking that Jake is a liar, that Jake are making up things, involving more than one person in this 'lie', involving a woman, her kids, his family, his friends...this is unaccettable."

We all have our own ideas of right and wrong, good and bad. For me there's nothing wrong with the above scenario except that TPTB still force people to do such things.

Anyway I just popped in to add my two cents and won't interrupt your conversation any further.

It's annoying to have the words of other people used against you, isn't it?

Jake is his own person and the only one who lives with the consequences of his decisions. Who am I to decide anything for him.

Glad to hear it. But that's how all of us here already think. This sentiment might best be spread elsewhere, you know, on sites where people presume to judge Jake everyday on what he does and doesn't do.

I assume you'll be stopping by those places to "interrupt" their conversations, as well.

Anyway I just popped in to add my two cents and won't interrupt your conversation any further.

Why exactly you felt the need to interject your two cents on a completely unrelated topic is still unknown.

This is a place for people to HAVE conversations, not to interrupt them with unrelated agendas.

TPTB forces young handsome actors not to make gay in a movie too apparently, anon...

UltraViolet said...

As annoying as it is, it's also funny to see the headlines if you do a Jake news search. One headline says "Jake and Reese to wed," the next "Jake and Reese deny engagement." Just points up the absurdity of all this!

bobbyanna said...

(((((UV))))) Brilliant.

These pathetic arguments are stale and irrational! Practically speaking, we live in the age of cell phone cameras and realtime instant exposure on the internet. People have very little, to no privacy.

That Jake is being controlled by some sinister, outside powers, and docile about accepting it, is totally absurd to me! I'm not denying such circumstances might exist, but that Jake would be seen as part of them, supporting them accepting them. No way!

First he is accused of being a liar, then he is excused because of those sinister, Powers That Be.

These trolls have been very, very, busy lately. They need to get a life, or seek help.
Their comments about Reese are vicious and mean, and degrading.

"It's not thinking that Jake is gay or straight the problem here anon. The problem is thinking that Jake is a liar, that Jake are making up things, involving more than one person in this 'lie', involving a woman, her kids, his family, his friends...this is unaccettable"

ITTTAWTS!!!Thanks, xenia. I could not have said it any better!!!!!!!

"if the rumours about Maggie and Peter marrying soon are right, they're holding fire doing it officially, and letting M&P have the 'limelight' in the lead up to their wedding (By Limelight I mean within the family/friends,..."

I agree, Agent K. Sometimes the public forgets Jake and Reese are members of a larger family. Not just their parents and siblings, but aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. amd those people have lives and friends, too.

This whole thing about them being engaged or getting married, reminds me of when they were first dating!

I found it interesting that they issued a joint statement...which I will take with the proverbial grain of salt. ;) (RingWatch is still in effect!;))

gabbana said...

"Just points up the absurdity of all this!"

Yes, I agree and I was not very happy with the DailyMail article- it made Jake looking desperate
(" he had proposed several times but she kept telling him she wanted to give their relationship more time") and a gabbler ("Jake is telling everyone they are getting married at Christmas")
I just wish the tabloids would shut up with the "engagement" or "marriage" speculation. I remember having the same rumours some time ago.

It is another thing if we here have a bit fun with speculating - as long as there are no "real" news. But I am waiting for the time when Jake, the actor will be in the news again promoting and discussing his new project.

Reading the time schedule of filming Pop (Thanks to Brothers Spy) the delay makes perfect sense. Having only 7 months for post-production is obviously not enough for such a big movie.

As a Reese fan I can tell you she is very close to her extended family. It's a "southern thing."

For me the funniest ever was the National Enquirier - one week Reese was asking Jake to get rid of Atticus as he was too big and she's a bit scared of him (Atticus, the most laid back looking dog in the world), two weeks later she's completely adopted him, loves him dearly, refers to him as 'her dog' and he's going to be ring bearer at their wedding *rolls eyes*

From the Daily Babbler, I wonder who thier "source" is:

A rep for Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal is saying that that the couple is not engaged and that reports stating the contrary are "lies."

That's all fine and dandy, but I don't believe them. Why? Because I trust our Martha's Vineyard sources who say plans are in motion for the wedding to happen there. It's a small island, and word gets round!

Plus, why would Reese and Jake come out and admit their plans to People so that the paparazzi can come and ruin the day?

Still say, if that's anyone, it's Maggie and Peter, and it's September during Jake's month off.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love it to be J&R, just get the feeling it's Maggie and Peter.

Narcissa said...

Well I am perfectly happy to let what happens, happen. Or doesn't happen. :D

Btw, in the U.K. we call August "the silly season" in news terms. Anything goes.

bobbyanna said...

I think MV is for Maggie and Peter, too. I believe something is up with Jake and Reese, but this is Maggie's time, so they are focussed on her.

"...why would Reese and Jake come out and admit their plans to People so that the paparazzi can come and ruin the day?"

Right! This is true in general, with any of their plans.
This entire situation reminds me SO much of the early days when we first heard rumblings of them being together. They did everything they could to keep the tabloids off balance. The rags stumbled all over themselves with contradicitons and quotes! It was pretty funny.

The People mag denial isn't a direct quote from a statement that was issued, but a paraphrased, second hand quote. The use of the word "lies" sounds off. Reese and Jake's publicist might deny reports they're engaged, etc. with a simple,"No, they're not." but they would never use the word "lies." There's something agressive and negative about that word and it's use in this regard.

extra said...

I agrre bobbyanna, check out Reese's rep. denial from yesterday's daily news:

http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2008/08/03/2008-08-03_rep_reese_witherspoon_jake_gyllenhaal_no.html

And Jake's reps. denial today from Us:

These sound like the normal response from their reps. seperately, the People denial did sound off.

PS: Agree about Maggie and Peter.

sass said...

Tis a hard time for trolls indeed and it's all good.
Once upon a time I ventured into troll-land to defend the his fair Royalness from vicious statements of Jake- anger and hate, but I had to give up; the toxic air made me angry, sad and besides I do have a life...i think:lol:lol

Lo and behold, nearly 11 months later, when I have no need to proclaim the beauty, truth, and love, that is Jake Gyllenhaal, by occasionally posting in those other blogs, the trolls now come to my happy home, to sputter and spit their Nonsense.

I am So totally Glad to see you handle them once again UV.

Your vanquishing them so well, just makes my doc visit doubly good: that plus the imminent removal of tubes from my body this afternoon just makes me one happy Gyllenhaalic.

lawgoddess said...

Hey, sass, hope you feel better soon.

People on LJ are being gleeful about the denial, hailing it as "great news." Sigh.

So the report of a joint statement was inaccurate?

I am more than ever hoping for a fall wedding, and a long and happy marriage.

It will be hard to pull off a private wedding, though. Remember the helicopters strafing J Lo's wedding?

I hope that they can pull it off, but I suspect there will be no wedding pictures released at all. Jake and Reese are not the type to sell their wedding pictures, IMO.

brothers spy said...

Slow news day (so i'll bite)...

Why would people hail the denial of marriage between anyone as "great news?" lol. That's just weird, man. Just think about how weird that is. Were they equally bummed when they didn't deny living together? lol.

I think those people just need a new hobby. This one doesn't seem to be working out for them too well.

Personally, I think a lot of those same people are in for some serious disappointment in the future.

I wonder how they will react when Jake and Reese eventually do marry. I think we may have to pad some sidewalks or something, because I think those people will begin jumping off buildings in response. lol.

Personally I don't follow the various whims of that group and don't know what they are saying at any given time; but occasionally, like now, information filters down and I'm reminded at how funny (in a pathetic way) they actually are.

gabbana said...

"People on LJ are being gleeful about the denial, hailing it as "great news"

Does that mean those people actually believed the tabloid story?? Why am I not surprised?

Reese and Jake both had a marriage/relationship that did not work. So IMO they made their relationship public when they were sure it would last. Dating a woman with two children means more responsibility and carefulness. Especially with the paps (and today also bloggers and everyone with a cellphone) always following you.

Until today we only have paparazzi pics of them together as a pairing - the next step I am hoping for is an "official" event like a film premiere, red carpet or something like that.

Ref. to a possible marriage in MV I have a question: Is a kind of public notice at the marriage license bureau necessary? If yes it would be difficult keeping it as a secret....

BTW, there are some long lasting relationships in HW without a marriage - Brangelina, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis or Maggie & Peter.

lawgoddess said...

I should probably clarify what I said earlier about LJ. The exact quote was not "great news", it was " I needed some good news today." And a couple of people agreed that it was good news.

I didn't double check, relied on memory.

I think marriage licenses are public records, but they can probably be kept private before the ceremony if there's a good reason. For a Jake-Reese wedding on MV, public safety could be a very good reason. It's a small island, they don't need thousands of paps descending.

UltraViolet said...

One of the things I find amusing is that some sites (X17, Socialite's Life, e.g.) who in the past have been mocking or derisive are now claiming to be skeptical about the denial.

It's this kind of thing that makes the trolls and the haters upset. They can see that even in the morass of the internet, the tides are turning.

Anonymous said...

What I find strange is that some so called "fans" (haters) seem to have forgotten about Kirsten or made out she was a "beard", anything to rationalize their fantasies.

Sorry UV/FL delete this if unappropriate just wanted to say that.
BTW UV/Xenia and BS thank you for your replies to the Anon poster, I love this place.

sallykirkland said...

I'm no lawyer, but as I understand it, public notice was required in the old days to insure a marriage was lawfully entered into. That was the reasoning behind publishing the banns in a church as well. To make sure there were no legal, or religious impediments.


In the case of very famous people, the likelihood of having some secret encumbrance is pretty unlikely. I think there are definitely ways of suppressing the news, or simply waiving the required civil waiting period. So, instead of waiting at least three days or whatever, it's possible to get the marriage license and get married the same day.

I think with MV being a very popular wedding site, and the fact the Gyllenhaals own a house there, Maggie and Peter will probably be able to do it with little notice, except for some random pictures after the fact, and maybe a leak or an announcement afterwards.

I do not think helicopters will harrass either Maggie or Reese for that matter, when they eventually get married.

I do believe both have probably already been approached thru their publicists by various magazines, for exclusive rights to a photospread!

UltraViolet said...

Sass, I forgot to say good luck to you today!

No need to add anything to the engagement chatter, it will run it's cycle until something else pops up. Didn't believe the Daily mirror "story" for a minute BTW.

One more thing - to get things off this engagement story - I was just rewatching some of the youtube Pedro videos about Jake. This one is form Jake's last visit, with Reese.

Pedro makes me smile!

Roll on Brothers, at least Jakes character has a name on IMDB now, still no names for Natalie and Toby though.

One thing remains unchanged. Jake and Reese are still driving the bus, and everybody else is still staring at the bus, reacting to the bus, and running after the bus (even if they are throwing things at it).

"I'm no lawyer, but as I understand it, public notice was required in the old days to insure a marriage was lawfully entered into."

Yes that was also usual over here until some years ago.

Thanks for the infos Sally and LG - hopefully Reese & Jake will be able to keep things private.

Pedro is a sweetheart - I like his videos so much....

And Jake is officially Tommy Cahill now - groundbreaking news...sorry anon, I don´t want to be rude, but I am always whining about the lack of news on "Brothers", although the interview with J. Sheridan was very interesting.

Howdy UV, FL and babblers...I'm back and it's all good:):)

UV, TY for our lovely and amazing Pedro:)
He makes me feel so good.

Hmmmm, so the maroons believed the rumors; then they believed the denials. hahahahahahahhahaha.

Have they forgotten how often those two lovers told the press they were single last year? They continued with the single story all the way to Rome? That is fine by me. I love them together even when they say otherwise.
They denied having a relationship more than once; reports were posted that they were separated more than once before they finished the Rome press tour for Rendition, exited the plane, kissed each other in front of the world, and began dating openly.
Hell, Perez...I know I know...reported sightings of them on the 405 freeway way back in early 2007, either March or April, laughing and chowing down on something in the car.
Lord when will they stop?
Having Kirsten relegated to a (beard) non-girlfriend is particularly vexing for me and my family...we've been fans for years and feel offended for both of them, that people are silly ridiculous about Jake and his loves.

And yay for sass!

bobbyanna said...

Hey, sass!!!! (((((sass)))) You've brought back some sweet, fun memories!!!

Perez had them spotted all right. I think he was first to break the story! Remember how Reese left the Oscars in '07, to fly to NYC to be with Jake, who was promoting Zodiac, on a break from Morocco for Rendition. He even talked about watching the Oscars from his hotel room.

There were also reports, way after the fact, of her visiting him in Morocco. I simply cannot picture Reese rushing off to NYC or Morocco for a sleepover with a guy she is just casually dating. I think by then, they were "going together.";) But not nearly as seriously as they were later. By Rome, they were very serious.

UV! Thanks for Pedro. He makes me smile, too.

UltraViolet said...

Some actual news! Of course, who knows what will ultimately happen, but from this story on David Bergstein and ThinkFilm woes:

Bergstein's highest-profile production is the $30 million "Nailed," directed by David O. Russell, which was shut down by SAG, the DGA and IATSE four times this summer over money woes.

Bergstein said the guild problems have been resolved and that the movie only needs two days of pickup shots; others said scenes crucial to the film are missing. In any case, additional days were funded and the film will arrive on schedule in early 2009.


Fingers crossed!

Xenia said...

Finally, some news about Nailed, and good (fingers and everything that can be crossed, crossed) news for God's sake!

Thank you, UV! :)

agent_krycek said...

Okay, one instance when I choose to believe National Enquirier....

Apparently Jake has insisted that 80% of his costumes for PoP will be sleeveless to show off his (and I quote) 'bulging muscles'

Is it 2010 yet?

brothers spy said...

Prince of Perisa update...

Jake definitely has a month off after the first week of September.

According to my source, the schedule won't change at all in Morocco. What I told you before is what is happening. But the schedule for England is all up in the air.

Apparently there had been a lot of concern regarding the filming schedule the week before the announcement of the delay. So i'm guessing the producers felt things were being too rushed and given that this is a $200 million movie, that probably scared the crap out of Disney.

They've decided to begin filming in England three or four weeks after originally scheduled so that screws up everything there as well.

Right now, and this may change, the idea is to take December off as well (this would ultimately give Jake time to promote Brothers and rest up during Christmas for two or three weeks) and break up the England/Studio stuff into two parts: the interior scenes (which will be filmed in October and November); and the green screen stuff which will be filmed over three weeks (or so) in January.

This new schedule would allow them to plot out the CGI stuff properly and let them do it all right.

Of course, and I want to emphasize this, the England shoot is still very tentative at this point and is subject to change. But that's what they're thinking right now.

P.S. I think i'm "in there" with my source now. He told me that he'd be checking his email more frequently and would answer questions (that are appropriate --- i've only asked about the schedule so far) if I had them.

If any of you have any questions you want answered, let me know and I'll ask them. This guy may be as good as my "Nailed" source.

Xenia said...

Oh Brothers Spy...*smack* I have no questions so far, I just wanted to thank you! :)

Update on the Dreams Auction on Martha's Vinyard:

A trip to the set of an upcoming Doug Liman-directed movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, known for now only as Untitled Moon Project, was bought by Daniel Burstein of Menemsha for $8,500.

For Mr. Liman, whose father gave dreams for several years himself, the annual fund-raiser is unique.

“People who come to the Vineyard are committed to it not being a playground for the rich and famous,” he said.

Last year Mr. Liman paid for a day’s horseback riding with Clarissa Allen of Chilmark.

“It was the most magical day I’ve ever had on the Vineyard. It was truly irreplaceable. No one but her could have offered that ride,” said Mr. Liman adding that Mrs. Allen secured permission from up to 20 neighboring residents in order to plot the course of their ride.

“You don’t get to do that even if you’re a billionaire. It’s access to something truly unique that’s not doable anywhere else,” he said.

Mr. Liman said he had already talked to winner Mr. Burstein , whose son David is a young filmmaker, about sitting in on the writing process for the film at Mr. Liman’s home as a part of the dream.

“You want people to talk about it so more come next year,” he said.


http://www.mvgazette.com/article.php?17766



Had know idea that Liman was part of the MV crowd and how cool is it that the winner of the Moon project set visit son is a filmmaker and Liman has invited him to sit in on the writing process!

Thanks for the filming update brothers spy. And I do love hearing about life, Jake and auctions on MV extra:):)

shondra said...

Thanks bs!!!From all your reports it sounds like he will be filming in Morocco this week and have the weekend off then resumes again on the 11th -Sept. 5 if i'm correct.

I think FL posted about allowing family to visit the set around the 2nd week in August, I wonder if Reese will visit then?

Anyway this gives him time to go to TIFF if Brothers is going to be screened there. Oct.-Nov. back to the UK then Dec. off, sounds like he has plenty of off time.

The change with the UK filming maybe changed Jake and Reese's plans for the NH flat, they may have known then the change of plans and didn't need the flat for the summer.

brothers spy said...

Hey guys I can't stay long...

I think the NH flat was for more than just the summer. I think he was meant to keep it until the end of December. I think he's always been aware that he was to film in England through the fall.

It's likely that the house was actually rented by the producers of the film and not by Jake himself.

The only thing I wonder is whether he'll have to find another place if/when they continue filming into January or whether he'll just get the lease extended by a month.

agent_krycek said...

I was thinking the same brothers spy - they've taken a 6 months rental on the flat, July - December fits - in usual Estate Agency stuff there'll be a clause about any extension to the rental term, in a short term let it's not usual, and as Jake/Disney are prestigous clients for the Estate Agents I can't imagine there'd be a problem.

Mind you, with the location given away before they'd even got there, most likely by the Estate Agents, they might move - and once more, Jake, I have enough spare space for you, Reese and the kids, plus a big garden for Atticus - just putting it out there ;-)

brothers spy said...

Mucho quick (before I get fired)...

It's likely that he didn't even move into the house until July 1st. I agree with Agent_K, it was probably a six-month lease (July 1 to December 1).

That would explain why Reese/Jake were staying at the Dorchester when she first arrived in the last week of June, and why the kids arrived one week after her.

Back to work...

brothers spy said...

December 31st.

josie said...

I thought at the time that Disney was the one that rented that flat for Jake. As nice and roomy as it was there was no security, something that I would think Jake would have taken into consideration if he rented the place on his own.

I also think that the reason they said Reese rented the flat was because maybe Jake asked Disney to make sure that it was big enough for when Reese and the kids visit.

I agree that they stayed at that Hotel for the most part and hung around NH, that would explain the sightings.

I would think that Disney has been instructed to find a more suitible place when he returns, I can't see him staying at the original flat.

Thanks so much for all of your updates bs!!

lawgoddess said...

Well, clearly the first flat wasn't secure, with paps hiding behind the garbage cans.

The children shouldn't be subjected to that kind of thing.

I do think Reese's relatively light schedule is not a coincidence.

They will literally print anything. If it's in PAGE SIX, you have a 75% chance that it's a lie.

I think Jake was still filming and I don't think Reese was in Brooklyn, she was still in LA.

That is a very odd sighting.

I love Reese/FL's necklace!

If I were you, i'd just sound out the town names and get a map of Morocco with the names of every city and mark off the ones that were closest.

Well, despite the way it looks, I don't have quite THAT much time on my hands :) I did try variations of the names/looking up the names on a list of cities and towns and still didn't get anywhere. But I'll try some different things.

sheba baby said...

Very odd sighting , I agree!

I'm not having any luck finding thos sights either UV, perhaps the name given are not actual locations but the names of the places in the script? Just a thought.

UltraViolet said...

Reese video from yesterday. I can't imagine what this would be like - having all those cameras in your face.

My favorite part is when someone asks if she and Jake are engaged, and she says "I don't know." I think she's talking to the person on the phone and not the reporter, but it's funny to think that at this point, even she doesn't know if they're engaged!

UltraViolet said...

Glad to know someone else struck out, sheba baby!

UltraViolet said...

Another version of the video from Sky News, picking up on Reese's confusion, lol.

There's also a favorite couples poll if you feel like voting J/R.

chica said...

I don't believe that sighting but it's being picked up via page six.
The online edition oy the NY Observer of all places posed it!!

LOL! At that video, can't blame her for being a bit confused, after the official People denial, i'm still getting e-mail alerts saying they are and they are all posed AFTER the denials!!

Bette said...

I love that look she gives them as she's climbing in to the car, it's so sassy. It says back the hell up. I wonder who she was talking to, the video is funny though. I watched it several times. He asks Reese are you and Jake engaged? She clearly says "I don't know, there are so many people here." But if you don't pay attention to that part it's very funny. For once I wasn't annoyed with a paparazzi video, I usually get angry, even though it's none of their business. This encounter still made me laugh.

brothers spy said...

Okay i've done some research (at work no less, and I may be unemployed at any time now) regarding locations in Morocco...

I think i've discovered the locations of at least two of the three cities.

The first one Bu Izergar is actually Bou Ourhzir a small village in the larger city of Azilal.

This town is in the Atlas Mountains with highway access directly to Marrakeck and Ouarzazate.

The second city i'm pretty sure of is Tansloth actually being Taroudant. This town is less than forty miles away from Ouarzazate and has these beautiful fortress like city walls from a previous era.

The third city, Sidi Hutman, i'm a little less confident of. There's a Sidi Ifni in Tiznit and a Sidi Hammouch that are good candidates, but both of these towns/villages are pretty far away, with the latter being more than 250 miles away. They seem to be in another province all together.

The variations in spelling could be because of the Anglifying Morocco names or vice versa. Or there could be different pronounciations and my source just wrote them down phonetically, not really knowing how they were ever spelled.

He emphasized to me that he didn't know the spelling of any of the cities (and I didn't really make a big deal about the cities they were filming in anyway), so i'm guessing that he just wrote them down as best as he could remember them.

shondra said...

That video is funny! I noticed that she has a bandaid on her arm looks like a kids bandaid.

UltraViolet said...

I noticed that, too, shondra. It looked as if she'd gotten a shot. You know, like she might be traveling somewhere soon and might need to "immunization" herself :)

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for the videos UV. I wanted to be upset, but I couldn't. It was kind of funny...in a way. They were so polite with the
"Hi, Reese, please...etc." Does anybody else think these guys all sound like the same person???A touch of an accent, the way they talk, something...I think they must stake out that parking structure. It looks eral familiar...for a parking structure.


Jake is filming in the Atlas mountians??? Oy!

Yeah, she is probably getting vaccinated for yellow fever...per Jake's instructions! ;)

Hello, Babblers!
UV and BS, thank you for all the information and links!

Star Magazine:

Heath's Brokeback Mountain co-star Jake Gyllenhaal is still coping with his death and can't bring himself to see The Dark Knight, even though his sister Maggie is also in the film.

“Jake is proud that Heath did such a great job and is getting rave reviews for his performance - even Oscar talk - but he can't see it right now,” a source tells Star. “He's still not over it.”

[From Star, print edition, August 11, 2008]


Another video with Reese:

Now the links are working!

josie said...

Thanks for the link to the video, and like you bobbyanna I can't get upset at this, it's too funny!

That sighting is really weird, it has to be a case of mistaken identitiy.

bobbyanna said...

It could have been a garbled tip. Maybe some "amateur" spotted Maggie and Peter in Brooklyn at some free concert and verbally passed the "tip" on to someone at pagesix who got everything mixed up with the wrong Gyllenhaal.
Or it could be mistaken identity.
pagesix, and the gawker site are notorious for getting things wrong. Accuracy is not their strength!

UltraViolet said...

Okay, I feel a little bad about the pap video now: Reese flips off the paps.

But it is kind of funny!

verdeblusm said...

On december 2007 Jay Z and BeioncĂ© denied engagement rumors (they tie the knot on april 2008)…
Scarlett Johansson shopaholic on February 2008,denied Rumors of an engagement but on May 2008 she has announced her engagement to Ryan Reynolds…
The same Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck…
It seems to be the Hollywood style: to disown what is going to happen!
Maybe it’s only a wish and a wish is father to the thought but I want to believe that R&J are engaged and soon to be married...

bobbyanna said...

LOVE it!!! Thanks UV!!!

sass said...

Morning babblers,
There is so much great information here today. It was fun watching Reese do her flip off...the paps were surprised and laughed.
I think they should enact a law keeping them back a few feet...but would they obey and who could you call to make them.
Full Count was on Showtime this am and is on again 6:PM tomorrow evening...small part for Austin... he's the best in this hopeless movie. I hope he gets a real breakout role soon...he's a talent.
Speaking of celeb-couple denials: Jay-Z was finally photographed wearing his beautiful wedding band this week and they still have not confirmed their wedding to the press. Maybe that's the best approach to maintaining some privacy...who knows.
back later
sass

Thanks for the video links UV, good on yer Reese the paps need that occasionally.

I am with you verdeblusm, I also believe they are engaged.

Thanks for the video of Reese flipping off the paps UV, you go girl!!!! Reminds me of when Maggie did the same.

bobbyanna said...

I can't believe no one in Morocco has a cell phone and internet access. (sigh.) Just a thought.

sheba baby said...

I'm afraid not bobbyanna, we got close to nothing when Jake was in Morocco for Rendition, that's why it's so great that we have our own insiders here!

Thanks to bs and fl for all their info and updates because w/o them we would have a clue to what was really going on.

brothers spy said...

Hey you guys...

I'm going to do a write-up later on the Jake spoilers board about what I think is going on in Morocco regarding filming. I've done this by putting together the script, the cities I was given where they are filming (i'm pretty sure i've got those figured out as well) and other little bits of information we have gotten. I think i've figured it out. I'm pretty sure I know what scenes they have filmed and are preparing to film.

I can't do it right now on account that i'm at work and I wouldn't have the time, even at lunch.

So check the Spoilers Board around 4pm or 5pm, and I should have it up then.

See you then...

bobbyanna said...

Thanks BS...wish you had different initials! ;) ;) ;)Yes, FL and BS have been really great. Thank goodness! But I remember we did get a few set pictures when they were filming Rendition in Morocco. It wasn't much, but this is such a long shoot, I don't really NEED to see Jake in costume (Hah!) but phtographic evidence of his continuing existence would be OK.

OK. I will stop whining.

agent_krycek said...

We sort of knew this would happen, we had a magificent feast of photos between London and Paris, now nothing as far as Jake's concerned. I'm not expecting any set photos at all before the official release of some, I suspect Disney has better set security then most :(

I live in hope for the next London stay

lawgoddess said...

I feel bad for Reese, saying "this is kind of disorienting" and " this is a lot of people". And I feel bad she got provoked into flipping them off , even though it's understandable.

I guess she needs to valet park.:(

I'd be mad, and maybe scared.

Or maybe she needs to travel with a bodyguard at all times, poor baby.

It reminds me of the way Princess Diana was hounded, although Reese is certainly more mature and stable.

Bet Jake will wince if he sees this. Sigh.

Anonymous said...

Reese really needs some security or body guard.
But then again, I am sure she wants to lead a normal life, and having security follow you around all day could get annoying at the paps themselves

UltraViolet said...

Yet another Reese video. This one basically just stalks her, cataloguing her trip to the chocolate store. As awful as this is, I would have loved it if it were Jake they filmed for this long.

Yes, I have no morals.

Anonymous said...

hmmmm...
gifts and candies from Boule
perhaps for a special weekend, for a certain guy!

I love Jake said...

Hey everyone, i'm new here. I've lurked for a while, but this is my first post. I just wanted to say how much I love this website.

Didn't someone above say that Jake had this weekend off? Could he be heading back to LA I wonder? I hope we get some pictures of Jake. We should definitely be on the lookout for any Jake sightings or photos.

Bette said...

She's making me really want chocolate!

UltraViolet said...

Welcome, ILJ. Glad to have you. Not sure if Jake will make it back home, but if he does, I hope someone gets a pic :)

And yes, Bette, I want chocolate now, too!

Bet Jake will wince if he sees this. Sigh.

LG, I like to think it was Jake on the other end of the phone, telling her to tell them to fuck off :)

bobbyanna said...

This time I did feel bad. You could really see how distracting it was. She worked hard to ignore them while she was in the store. When she went out to the car she looked disgusted. I can't imagine what it would be like to be stalked all day long. She has a lot of discipline. I'd have done way more then flip them.

UltraViolet said...

It's impossible to imagine what it would be like, isn't it, Bobbyanna? At least it's hard to imagine being so blase about it.

Still want chocolate...

office of nancy pelosi said...

Yeah, the last video did bother me. It looks like they were stalking her all afternoon.

But,mmmmm chocolate...

cathy said...

LG, I like to think it was Jake on the other end of the phone, telling her to tell them to fuck off :)

I kinda wondered about that myself. ;)

brothers spy said...

Hey you guys...

If you're interested I've posted --- a very long --- description of the scenes I believe they've filmed in the first three weeks of production in Morocco.

Since it is filled with spoilers, I wrote in at the Jake Spoiler site. So if you're interested in reading it, head on over.

brothers spy said...

It should read: "I wrote it at..."

suvee said...

Thanks for the Reese videos, UV. I wouldn't do well as a celebrity..... I don't think I would be able to keep my mouth shut when assaulted with such smothering and aggresive behavior. (I did really love her flipping them off!) In the "chocolate" video, as she is walking to her car, and one of the paps says, "What.... no chocolate for us?"....... well, that kind of arrogant, smug sarcasm would really get to me. I'm not sure I could resist the temptation to mutter something nasty. I truly admire both Jake and Reese for their ability to stay calm and collected the vast majority of the time.

And, yes, that band-aid does make me wonder about her potential travel plans. :)

FluorescentLamp said...

Or be tempted to spit out the chocolate in my mouth into the palm of my hand and say "Sure, here ya go!"

chica said...

I'm off to read about the latest on Pop in spoilers, thanks brothers spy!

lawgoddess said...

I'm avoiding spoilers, even though it's going to be a long wait fot PoP. I appreciate Brothers Spy's info, though, and the separating out of spoilers.

I didn't mean Jake would disapprove of Reese flipping off the paps, just that it would be hard to warch someone you care about being hounded.

I expect it's gotten worse since she's been with Jake.

You know what we need this weekend? More pictures of Jake on a horse, hair flowing behind him, sleeveless shirt.

I can dream, can't I? :)

Anonymous said...

Actually, IMO, it's been harder for Jake since he started dating Reese. Reese has always had pap problems. They've even done car chases. Didn't she once have an accident being chased? Several years ago.

Witherspoon paparazzi uncharged

Photographers who chased actress Reese Witherspoon from her gym to her home will not face criminal charges, Los Angeles authorities said on Tuesday.

The Legally Blonde star told police her car was surrounded in April by snappers who tried to force her off the road.

"I have no doubt Ms Witherspoon was besieged by the paparazzi that day," said Detective Jeff Dunn, head of the LAPD's Threat Management Unit.

But prosecutors said they could not be certain a crime had taken place."

I admire her restraint! She should spray them with battery acid! She knows the name of the game is to provoke her to get a more valuable picture. She refuses to play it.

When ever they can, Jake and Reese spoil the shots! LOL!

extra said...

I was shocked too at that news today nancy, but i'm afraid that it won't get too much play here in the US, it's day one of the Olympics:

http://www.thrfeed.com/2008/08/olympics-review.html

I can't get too excited about them for many reasons, I think it would be best if I posted those reasons on a political blog.

Thanks for all your detective work bs! I'll check out your report on the spoilers blog when I get home and have more time.

Reese has had her share of probwith the paps over the years, including an incident at Disney involving her family a few years back. I loved that she gave the paps the finger and I laughed but it also looks like they were stalking her all through shopping which I founfd creepy.

Noticed the bandaid too......

The department of child services is in an uproar upon hearing the news that Todd Wallace, a paparazzi photographer with a shady background, injured a 5 year-old child and shoved another adult out of his way trying to take pictures of Reese Witherspoon and her children at Disney World.

The tabloid press is under fire from child services groups for the latest installment in aggressive photography. Once again, Reese Witherspoon was the coveted target. Paparazzi photographer Todd Wallace is charged for allegedly striking a 5 year-old with his camera and shoving another person out of the way in an attempt to capture Witherspoon and her family on film. Prosecutors will not reveal the expected penalty, but many believe that this case will be used as a warning to the tabloid press.

suvee said...

Apparently, Entertainment Weekly isn't buying the engagement denial either. This is from this weeks's "Hit List" feature..... I thought it was cute.

10. Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal deny they've set a wedding date. They sent don't-save-the-date cards saying, "We won't be getting married on Oct. 22. Chicken or fish?"

FluorescentLamp said...

Boo! October 22nd is a Wednesday. Will be kind of difficult to take time off midweek.

Fish, please.

lawgoddess said...

LOL at the EW hit list comment.

From their mouths to God's ears.:)

shondra said...

IMO the denials were a bit over done.First her publist denies it, then we get a joint denial and then a third from his publist.

Make you wonder....
