Jake Gyllenhaal and the 80/20 Compromise

According to Star magazine, a Prince of Persia insider reports that Jake Gyllenhaal wants the sleeves removed from all of his costumes: "Jake has a lot of sword fighting scenes and wants to look strong and manly." Disney executives refused, but Jake insisted, so they compromised — 80 percent of the tops will have no sleeves.

Does Jake really look like the type that would roll up. . .


Or do away with sleeves altogether. . .



Just to show off his biceps?


Honestly, it's like Star just makes this stuff up.

Pictures from IHJ.

Meant to comment, but my mind blinked out for a moment. Fried by the hotness!

Guh! Lovely collection, FL.

gabbana said...

Hehe, I call BS on this story but an excellent reason for showing all these hot, sexy pictures....

BTW, I wouldn´t mind if the "compromise" actually comes true...:-))

chica said...

BS on the Star story as well but what a wonderful sight to wake up to!

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for all the lovely "proof" that Jake would never do such a thing!!! ;) ;) Goodness! Those people at Star Magazine must live in some sort of fantasy land!!!

Narcissa said...

Of course it's not true! Why would Disney execs refuse? ;)

Bette said...

This entry is made of win.

And why exactly does Dastan need a shirt in the first place?

I bloody knew Disney should have got me in to design the costume ;-)

josie said...

A shirtless Dastan, that sounds more like it!!

lawgoddess said...

"I bloody knew Disney should have got me in to design the costume ;-)"

LOL. Agent K.

But I think they want children to see this film, so a Babbler might not be the best person to do the costumes.:)

I have a suspicion this might be a PG 13 movie... At least that is my hope.

sheba baby said...

I think it will be a pg-13 movie too anon. What a beautiful collection of pictures FL, less is better!!

I saw these pictures of Reese last week andI didn't like the look, cuffed baggy jeans. But I learned that this look and the jeans are being packaged as the boyfriend jeans look:

After hearing that I hope she wears them again!

FluorescentLamp said...

Oh huh. How did I miss another great Kohl's necklace?

Thanks, anon. Not sure how I feel about the jeans. I love them, but Reese is usually so well put together and wearing ripped jeans just isn't her style. I remember "boyfriend jeans" first time around in the 80s. More popular in the UK than here, though I remember Tina Turner wearing them and thought she looked fantastic. Boyfriend jeans and a man's crisp white button down. I loved that look and immediately hijacked all my dad's crisp white button downs and his belts. Because it was also all about having a belt much too long cinching your boyfriend jeans.

suvee said...

I'm pretty sure this another case of Star magazine getting the story wrong.

It seems far more believable that it was Disney (no fools they) that insisted on the 80% bicep exposure! :)

Thanks for such an inspiring post, FL. Those b/w GQ bike pics really do something to me.....

get real said...

Ooooh, nice arm candy pics! Jake total hotness. How could Disney not give us the arm candy. ;p

I'm all for a barechested Jake in Pop, but i'm just shallow like that! Love all the pictures you chose for thispost FL!

Good friend of mine is in this, Jake spends a lot of time wearing little.
He's back in the US at the moment, filming restarts on Thursday

ojai said...

Anon, are you sure he is back in the States? How long has he been back? I ask because I was still wondering about that sighting last Sunday in Brooklyn. I dismissed it as fake but what if they met in NY and flew back to L.A. with her? The only pics we have of her was on Tuesday.If true it would explain why we haven't seen pap pics of Reese since Tuesday.

If he has been in the States since last Sunday (just speculation) then he is in hiding due to his "look" yes it was on display in Paris but I can just imagine what he looks like now wnd he may not feel 100% comfortable here.

We need BS for confirmation!!!

brothers spy said...

The sighting from last Sunday was incorrect. I'm 99.99% certain of that.

He was filming all week in Morocco, as best as I know; and there have been sightings of Reese in LA this week, I believe.

I had heard that he had this weekend off, but I assumed it was three or four days: Friday-Sunday (possibly Monday).

I assumed that he might fly here, or I even thought it was possible that Reese would travel to meet him for the weekend in Europe or something since that would probably be easier. I don't know, that's just speculation on my part.

The only thing I can think of regarding this sighting is that since they seem to have finished a phase of filming (they finished all the "travelling" or "journey" scenes this week), maybe they decided to take a few extra days off and begin a weekend filming schedule for next week, thus giving them six or seven days off.

So it's technically possible, I guess. I don't know though, this is the first I have heard of this. I emailed my source, when he reports back to me, i'll report what I know to you.

Right now i'm taking this new "report" from an anonymous poster with a grain of salt.

No offense. I hope you're right.

ojai said...

bs, the only sighting of Reese this week was Tuesday shopping, pics and a video. Nothing since. There was pics of her on Saturday, 8/2 then on Tuesday, 8/5.

brothers spy said...

Ojai,

I understand what you're saying, but that doesn't mean that she isn't in LA.

Jake was definitely working this week, and I don't think Jake would have flown all the way to NYC for one day, Sunday (and then go to a concert after flying for seven hours on his only day off), especially if they were planning to see each other this weekend.

I still say the NYC sighting was bogus. Especially since it came from PAGE SIX. Every story I have ever read on PAGE SIX (and I admit that I don't read many) has been a lie or an exaggeration. Every single one. So I assume this one was as well.

So, like I wrote, it's possible that Jake may have come back --- especially if they move to a Thursday to Monday shooting schedule now that they've moved production to Ouarzazate and he may have six or seven days off --- and they are together right now. I don't know.

It's also possible that Reese flew to Europe and they met there for a three-day weekend and they begin filming on Monday as originally planned. Again, I don't know.

When my source tells me, i'll tell you.

But I agree that they're probably together this weekend. It's speculation I admit, but call it a hunch.

ojai said...

BS, what i meant when i said that there have been no pap pics of her since Tuesday, i was speculating that if he is back in the states that they were maybe in Ojai, far from the paps. The kids may be with them as well since there are pics of Ryan in Las Vegas the past few days.

And i'm thinking the Brooklyn sighting may have been Peter and Maggie and when whoever saw them sent the sighting in, pg 6 decided to make it Jake and Reese.

This is all speculation of course!

UltraViolet said...

I love this post! It cracks me up. Jake does enjoy preening a little, doesn't he? And who wouldn't, if they had those arms?

Speaking of hotness, this is off-topic, but four years ago, I wasted many a summer work day ogling the Olympic Hotties thread on TWoP. It's back!

Enjoy :)

Summer, 2004 - when Jake was just that cute guy who was in The Good Girl. Man, why wasn't I paying more attention?

shondra said...

TWOP, what a blast from the past, I used to post on that site all thew time!

Thanks for the link UV, love the post and love looking at all the yummy pictures of Jake.

Off to watch the Olympics!

sag actor said...

Olympic gold ratings for NBC:

http://www.thrfeed.com/2008/08/ceremony-rating.html

Pop most likely get a PG-13 rating like POTC , the original script has been changed from the original.

suvee said...

OT, but wanted to thank UV for the TWoP link. Never knew about that site, but glad I know now...... I can be something of an Olympics junkie.

I did take note that some posters there are still singing the praises of Lenny Krayzelburg..... and I know why. Great athlete, lovely guy, killer bod. (sigh) I loved watching him.....

Anonymous said...

Lenny was just gorgeous, wasn't he?. :)

Anonymous said...

New pics of Reese on X17, no Jake though so doubt he is back in the US.

Anonymous said...

I wonder when the last time Reese saw Jake?

Anonymous said...

Why would you think he is back in the US twitter/erin? Just because some anon. person posted?

You didn't mention that Ava was with her and they both look adorable, but of course you could care less.

Reese saw Jake the weekend of July 25th IMO, the last weekend he had off. That sighting I believe.

BTW: Reese looks happy and relaxed, much different than
Tuesday.

chica said...

OT: First Bernie Mac and now Isaac Hayes, RIP:


Issac Hayes, Pioneering Singer, Is Dead at 65, A.P. Reports

Isaac Hayes, the singer, songwriter and musician whose "Theme
From Shaft" won Academy and Grammy awards, died on Sunday,
The Associated Press reported. He was 65.

Anon 4:27 I am not erin/twitter, I posted the X17 post sorry I did not mention Ava I didn't think to also I mentioned him not being in the US to refute the other anon post.. Again I apologise for not making it clear I just posted without thinking.

Anon 1 said...

She hasn't seen Jake since July 25?
wow that is a long time apart

office of nancy pelosi said...

I love, love all the pictures, especially the one where he is wearing the red T, biceps!!!



The hats Ava and Reese are so cute, and Reese is rocking another chunky necklace!

Can't do a ring alert because I can't see and also she didn't have one on the last time due to the engagement rumors.

Didn't FL say that families could visit the set in Morocco around the 2nd week in August?? I think it's time for Reese to make a trip!

fez hat said...

Correction, it was July 28th, a Monday when he returned to Morocco, it's been less than 2 weeks.

Don't worry, she is on her way there this week, that hat she is wearing and the evidence of her getting a shot earlier this week is a giveaway, looks like something you would wear in the hot sun.

She looks happy and healthy.

Narcissa said...

Lol at the idea of two weeks apart being a long time! Anon do you realize that there are people, frex in the army, who don't see their families for months and months? It's part of the job.

Nice pics of Reese and Ava looking happy though one can only wonder at the mentality of the people who make the loathsome comments.

What goes around, comes around.

It seems like before Jake starts a movie that always take a small Vacation

Before Nailed they went to Mexico
Before POP filming they went to Paris

Suvee, glad you're enjoying the link. And shondra, I used to be a devoted TWoPer. Though the mods could be extremely annoying, it was run better than most places. Since my love for SVU hads diminished (though not for the Meloni - never!), I haven't really spent much time at TWoP.

But I remember it fondly. And the good times continue in the Olympics thread.

I spy a Bros fan :p

And completely O/T - exactly how nailbiting was that mens 4 x 100m freestyle, bloody amazing swim by the last US swimmer - fantastic (and well done Rebecca and Jo!)

Wow, two whole weeks apart, because, of course there's absolutely no such thing as telephones, emails, messaging, webcams etc etc

UltraViolet said...

LOL, Agent K. It is a shame there's no way for these two crazy kids to communicate! Or perhaps Reese read this recent entry from Verbose Nailed Extra, where he mentions Jake's flirting with all the girls!

Yeah, its not exciting, but we get nothing in the realm of sightings or blog posts these days, so I had to post it.

paula said...

LOL! I remember that bloggers earlier entry in April and he mentioned that Jake was flirting with the college girls!! Don't think Reese has anything to worry about.

I ove the Star and their "stories", but in this case i hope they are right!

I was so sad to hear about Isaac Hayes, what a loss.

You know that things are slow in Jakeland when the NY Post recycles the Jake peed on the leg of a swimmer when stung by a jellyfish story!


Jake Gyllenhaal, a lifeguard on Martha's Vineyard as a teen: "Someone got stung by a jellyfish, and I peed on their leg to counteract the sting. Otherwise, it was pretty tame."

Howdy babblers...wonderful post...love the bicep/triceps pics...not to mention the rest of his gorgeousness. Now, if only I could see him In the Flesh...:)
*thud*
Reese looks cool in her pretty dress and big hat hanging with her daughter; she's readying herself for Morocco I suppose.
back later,
My son and I are celebrating my BD a week early with a trip to Imax TDK and chocolate cake.:)

Love the biceps and chest, not so much the hair, but damn is he smoking. Makes Reese look even tinier, what a luck woman!

It's cool they have some time to hang out with each other.

Reese and Ava look so cute together.

WOW!!!!!! He looks amazing!!

However, some of the comments at JustJared are nauseating.
