Old Movies

Jake Gyllenhaal has gone back into the Prince of Persia Protection Program, working hard to bring us a future blockbuster. Let's take this opportunity to look at some of Jake's old movies. No, not those ones we've all seen over and over. But some candid movies from times past. We've matched the old photos that might be recognizable to the new/old video, which might be new to you. In any case, it's always fun to watch Jake in motion.

May, 2005:

March, 2006
How you doin?


May, 2006

Oh, how I wish we had video of Jake and the little kid!

June, 2006

Who says white men can't jump?

I know it's not easy, but keep your eyes on the basketball!

Good night, Babblers!
Uv, you put a smile on my face with these videos!
I love this simple style of living that is a feature of Jake!
I think Jake combines more with New York and London than in Los Angeles.

Chris! My God!
That wonderful man!
I'm completely in love with this man.
The videos of him with his family in MV are amazing!

The finger wave at LAX.

Dumping Boo into the back seat like a sack, a small sack, of potatoes.

Taking shot after shot and hitting nothing but air.

Classics all! Good times.

Thanks for posting these, UV!

chica said...

Thanks for finding these videos and posting them UV!! Ahh the memories of Jake in NY in '06. He was there so much that I though the moved there!

The LAX video from '05, had no idea that was Chris next to him unless I missed it in the IHJ gallery, good to see him and Boo!!!

PS: Neither Jake nor Chris play basketball that well from these viseos!

Monica said...

Chica, also realized that they are not good for basketball players.

Monica said...

This week?
Reese and her dog

I think it was the same day the photo of Us Weekly.

Anonymous said...

I recognize that white dress set she had on, that is an old photo I think

bobbyanna said...

I'm loving these videos, UV! Never saw any of them before. I've seen the stills but never the video clips.

lawgoddess said...

Lovely videos.

Does seem like on those two days, Jake got nothin' but air.:)

I do like seeing him in motion. Thanks!

UltraViolet said...

Aww, I think Jake actually hit a couple of shots! Chris, too. But they aren't first stringers! Hee.

Glad folks enjoyed the vids. They are pap videos, but I couldn't resist. Glad to be ab le to show something new, even if it's old!

Monica, a lot of people think Jake is more of a NYer. Like Chica! :) But I think he has too much of the LA boy in him to ever leave completely.

Oh, and Chica, I don't think you can see Chris in the IHJ pictures.

UltraViolet said...

I love the part of the beach video where Jake just stands there, allowing Atticus and Boo (Boo!) to gaze at him adoringly. Boo, of course, tires quickly of that and runs off, but Atticus is stalwart.

And I love the finger wave at LAX. It's just fun seeing Jake and Chris together.

suvee said...

What a nice treat.... I've never seen any of those videos before. I love watching those boys shooting hoops in NYC. 2006 sure was a very good Jake viewing year, wasn't it?

Thanks, UV, for the videos!

agent_krycek said...

Not aware of the Heat sighting Anon., thats a UK rag, do you have a link?

Although I utterly refuse to buy that steaming pile of phoo that is 'heat' I'll pop into the shop at lunch time and find the sighting and report back.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Wow, great find UV!! Loved looking at all the videos, I have a bit of a crush on Chris so it was good to see him!

And Boo, I miss seeing him as well, and the beach video was really sweet.

paula said...

I wish there was a video of Jake and that little boy too, those pictures were so sweet! What a wonderful post to wake up to, thanks so much for finding them UV!

agent_krycek said...

heat spotted section

A loved up Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon buying sandwiches in The Natural Kitchen on Marylebone High Street

No date, but I think they generally come from the week before, so possibly last weekend, does seem to back up the other sighting as well

Anonymous said...

i wonder if someone can help me or tell me what im ding wrong but when i click on to the videos and this happens all the time but itll play for a few seconds then stop play again etc so its takes me a long time to watch you or videos am i doing something wrong? thanks

bobbyanna said...

"... I have a bit of a crush on Chris..."

OONP: et tu?

I've developed such an interest in certain cooking videos from MV, I'm amazed at myself!

shondra said...

Thanks for looking that up Agent K!

So if both sigthings are correct and they seem to be back to back in the same area then can we conclude that she is in London now and that photo on the US weekly site is probably not recent? Or are both sightings from September?

I don't get the desire for Mayfair because from what I know about the area, it's not really private, no matter how much security Jake and Reese are looking for, probably more secure than the 1st place in NH, but Mayfair, NH and SOHO are in central London, it has to be still a hassle. Wouldn't they be better off somewhere near Pinewood studio? There are lovely places near there although not as interesting as central London and they may be looking at areas where Reese and when the kids visit to have some fun while Jake is working, just a thought.

I'm loving these videos! Good to see Chris and Boo, thanks!!

Anonymous said...

Depends on how long Reese stays. If Jake is working there is more for her to do in central London.

josie said...

Love the videos!!! Ha, ha at Jake and Chris playing basketball.

I miss Boo, sniff. I think Reese is in London too.

FluorescentLamp said...

While I can't speak to the validity of that house shopping in Mayfair gossip item, I'd like to direct your attention to the two properties listed below, both of which fill the criteria for privacy, etc., in Mayfair.

Property 1

Property 2

I think this is another of those instances where tabloids cobble together bits and pieces of other gossip items, do a quick MLS search in Mayfair, find these two very private and secure properties in the heart of Mayfair, attach a loudmouth unnamed realtor to the story and bob's your uncle.

bobbyanna said...

FL, you're a genius! Bob IS my uncle. ;)

Those are two fabulous properties! Wouldn't Disney be paying for Jake to be housed? I'd bet they are. So $70,000 a month is no big deal to The Mouse. Seven bedrooms and two kitchens! The swimming pool in the "somewhat smaller" place is very inviting as well! Gorgeous.

If Jake were just staying in London for several weeks to finish a movie, I was thinking more along the lines of a very nice 2-3 BR apartment. These two properties look more like permanent "family residences."

paula said...

Those homes are beautiful FL! And yes I would think Disney is paying for Jake's housing while filming.

I agree that these homes are more permanent and that they would be looking something a bit more "modest' since it will only be a rental.

agent_krycek said...

There's some gorgeous flats to rent in the Mayfair area - have a look on, I've picked out about 8 different places I could quite happily live for a few weeks with Jake ;)

Lemon said...

...$70,000 a month is no big deal...

God that's so depressing! They could pay off my house in like 3 months with that.

I loved the videos of Jake; he always seems so relaxed and laid back. It's like he's in no great hurry to get anywhere, which is rather refreshing in this day and age.

I'm also rather bemused by how England seems to consist of "London" and "outside London"...

bobbyanna said...

"I've picked out about 8 different places I could quite happily live for a few weeks with Jake ;)"

Me too, Agent K. I'd also add his trailer on the set at Pinewood or a mud hut in the Moroccan desert,...altho, I really do like indoor plumbing...

Ryan has the kids this week

There are pictures of him taking Deacon to karate

agent_krycek said...

It's a London thing mainly, there's sort of the South East, including London and the Home Counties, and then everywhere else, which we generally ignorecos they've got strange accents(joking!).

This just came up on google,

"Jake Survives On-Set Injury
Star Magazine, NY - 4 minutes ago
Acting can be dangerous to your health — just ask Jake Gyllenhaal! While waiting to shoot a scene for his latest movie, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, ..."

I can't seem to get the page up, comes up not found. I always have problems with the Star pages. Can anyone access that page and let me know what it says.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the heads-up, anon, pardon the pun when you read it

Acting can be dangerous to your health — just ask Jake Gyllenhaal! While waiting to shoot a scene for his latest movie, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Reese Witherspoon's boyfriend nearly lost an eye!

"He was throwing this prop key up higher and higher," says an insider. "But on the eighth toss, he didn't catch it and the key slashed his face, an inch under his left eye. Everyone held their breath because he couldn't see for a few moments because of the blood."

An on-set nurse stopped the bleeding, bandaged Jake up and wanted to take him to a nearby London hospital. He declined but must have been more shaken up than he appeared because "he called in sick the next day," adds the insider.

"When he did return to work, the makeup department had a tough time covering it up."

Jake, Jake, Jake! You weren't satisfied until someone got hurt!

UltraViolet said...

Now we know tht scar is real and not make up. Or that Star saw it and made up a story for it!

Oh, and thanks, Agent K, for getting the Heat scoop while not compromising your principles!

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much UV, I am still unable to access the link. I wonder when that happened?.

FluorescentLamp said...

I'm going with Star saw the on set pics and made up a story around it. That fake scar would have required many stitches had it been real.

Anonymous said...

What on set pics?.

UltraViolet said...

The pictures from last Friday.

All kidding aside, if that really happened, it sounds scary! Jake needs to find something else to do to pass the time onset.

Bette said...

I almost had a heart attack when that google alert came up. I was like WTF oh no Jake is hurt! And then I read the whole thing. What scar? Because I just went to go look at the pics, and I didn't see anything. Am I going blind? And I certainly don't see anything on the pics of him out in London.

That other google alert talking about Reese's coat nearly killed me too, because I thought we had a confirmed sighting of her in London with pics.

Bette said...

Oh! Nevermind I see it now. It blends in with the black circles under his eyes.

UltraViolet said...

I know what you mean, Bette. I keep seeing "Reese and Jake" in London headlines and for a minute, I think it's a new item. But it's not!

From a syndicated gossipreporter, FWIW:

When all other Hollywood reporters told you Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo broke up, I told you not true. They are still very much together! Now Hollywood reporters say Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon have broken up, and I’m telling you - not true. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if they get married before the end of the year - maybe by Christmas!

LGBarbara, do you have a radio show? :)

Bette said...

I hope that's true. I'd like to see them get married this year. I was cheering for a fall wedding, but a winter wedding at the ranch will do too.

Monica said...

Good night, babblers!

Anon 5:12, also can't open the pages of Star.

UV, thank you for putting the news here. I was a little scared.

Thank you all for all the link's!

Monica said...

Reese in LA:

suvee said...

I'm not very optimistic that we will see pics of J & R together in London (or the environs), but....... R. Downey Jr. is in London filming Sherlock Holmes. I would think he and Jake might be able to find some time to hang out together a little. I'd prefer to see some new J & R photos, but I would definitely settle for RDJ and Jake pics.

To continue the FWIW train of thought...... I'm still liking the Ojai December wedding scenario. :)

Anonymous said...

ok Reese is back in LA now VIA X17pictures, I thought she was in Europe since Ryan had the kids this week.
Anyone think maybe while Ryan had the kids this week she did visit Europe?
Maybe she came back this week

UltraViolet said...

I just have to say this - pictures of Ryan or Reese with the kids on one day does not mean he or she "has" them for the week.

Also, this is not a blog about the kids, so please avoid posts speculating about the kids or their whereabouts or custodial arrangement/situation.

Nothing personal, anon 9:23. I don't want us discussing who has the kids when or why.

UltraViolet said...

Suvee, I forgot to say that I would also love to see pics of Jake and RDJ. Even if we don't see it, I'd love to hear about it at least. Hope they can get together.

lawgoddess said...


No radio show, UV, but I do have a prediction on record!

I would love to see Jake and RDJ together in England too.

Now I don't know if the story about Jake's injury is true or not. It seems like if he did have a cut, since Disney is banking so much money on his face, they would want him to see a doctor.

I'll just have to study the Friday pictures some more to see if it looks real.

No, really, I don't mind....

UltraViolet said...

Glad you can devote yourself to the cause, LGB!

I forgot to answer this anon post earlier:

i wonder if someone can help me or tell me what im ding wrong but when i click on to the videos and this happens all the time but itll play for a few seconds then stop play again etc so its takes me a long time to watch you or videos am i doing something wrong? thank

Are you double clicking on the videos? Because that will start it and then open it in a separate window.

If it's just stopping and starting, I'd say it's probably your connection.
