Short but sweet

Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal is back in London after a brief visit home:

After spending each and every waking moment with gal pal Reese Witherspoon over the weekend, Jake Gyllenhaal was seen arriving at Heathrow Airport in London today to resume filming of the Prince of Persia flick.

The 27-year-old hunk was all smiles as paps drilled him with an array of questions ranging from engagement rumours to his parents’ impending divorce.






Back to the drought days? It was fun while it lasted...

Good night, babblers!
Jake back to work and with a beautiful smile!
The jeans is there!:)

UltraViolet said...

Yup, the jeans are back and so is Jake.

I forgot to say thanks for posting the video links in the other post, Monica. I always like seeing Jake in motion.

Goodnight, Monica!

well, sad to see him leave LA :(

But, if the sources are he will be done in December
This should comfort us somewhat

FluorescentLamp said...

Let's see...no long hair strands hanging into his face, no knitted snood, but hoodie up...sounds like HEADBAND to me! :-)

Cheers for the new post, UV.

agent_krycek said...

Goodness, it's blimming freezing here tonight, Jake, put some more clothes on (and there's a sentence I never thought I'd type!)

Bless, home for Deacon's birthday and now back in the UK for the final episode of The Restaurant (ignore me, I'm rambling about a UK show that I like to pretend Jake is following like I am - Tatboy and Gimp for the win - as I said, ignore me)

UltraViolet said...

and there's a sentence I never thought I'd type!

Hee, Agent K! Maybe he can stop by your place to warm up.

And good luck on that whole Restaurant thing!

Vicky said...

Wow been away for 2 weeks and come back to lots of great posts, just spent an hour catching up, thanks UV, FL and everyone for all the links and videos.

UltraViolet said...

Welcome back, Vicky, And what a treat to return to. Savor it, since Jake's probably gone back into hiding.

Hope you were somewhere fun for the past couple of weeks!

Anonymous said...

I'm just as big a Jake fan as anyone so excuse my anon post but I have to agree somewhat with the "troll" in the other thread. I have been put off by the cooing over Reese's kids lately. All the Jake protecting his cub and they are a family now is jumping the gun in my opinion. His girlfriend has cute kids. He seems to welcome them as part of his relationship. Do we really need to make them into the perfect blended family already?

agent_krycek said...

The Restaurant is wonderful, best fun ever on TV, and I may be here for sometime, as Guy Fawkes night isn't for another BLOODY TWO WEEKS and they're already letting fireworks off on a Monday night grrrrr.

I must admit, from what I've seen Gemma hasn't been doing that much Bond promotion, it's mainly been on Craig and err, the other woman who's in the main poster with him (sorry, if it's not Connery, I'm not that interested) - not good reviews this side of the pond so far though fo QoS

UltraViolet said...

The scroll bar works for anons as well, I assume.

If you don't like something, post something positive to counteract it.

Thanks for playing. Come back when you have the guts to use a name and the courtesy to post something of positive substance.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for t e info, Agent K. I wonder how big Gemms role is.

I did enjoy Casino Royale. And I watched From Russia With Love last night, so I'm sort of in a Bond mood.

get real said...

Wow, quick visit, Jake! ;) He is looking great and the smile is swoon worthy as usual. Lucky you Brits who have him now.

Great to see you post in the last thread, Sass!

Thanks for the links, videos, heads up, Monica, UV, Brothers Spy and everyone! :)

Monica said...

UV, the movie Quantum of Solace will have two Bond girls: Gemma and Olga Kurylenko.
I have a magazine that comes to a matter of the Bond movie, but they give prominence to Olga Kurylenko.

sheba baby said...

Yes, it was short but sweet but it was so good to see him back for those few days. Glad he was here for Deacon's birthday, and that is the sweetest thing of all!

lawgoddess said...

Very lovely pictures, thank you.

Seems like maybe Jake is getting tired of the long hair.

Too bad he had such a short break, but it seems to have done him good. He looks happy in some of the pics.


God love him!

bobbyanna said...

Awwww! We still may spot Jake at some random London restaurant or other.

And you know we'll see Reese there for at least one visit between now and December 3rd. Maybe he went back to shoot some scenes so he can finish sooner.

Vicky said...

Thanks UV, I don't comment often but I always read this blog. I went to a unseasonably warm and sunny Italy and was greeted back at a London airport with hailstones.

Loved the previous post with Jake in LA with Reese and Deacon, have just been catching up on other sites and blogs, see the haters are still out in full force.

Anonymous said...

Hi everyone
Bobbyanna
I was wondering to, since Jake is almost done filming, I wonder if Reese will make another trip or just wait until he gets home.

Narcissa said...

"..see the haters are still out in full force."

That is Jake and Reese's badge of honour!

Lovely smiles from Jake.

And welcome back sass!

office of nancy pelosi said...

Wow,that was a quick trip! Looking at the time spent here he must have been here for a certain little guy just turned five!

If i remember from Brothers spy's info, Jake was going to get some time off from 10/24 - 11/8 because of Gemma's scheduled time off to promote the new James Bond flick. He wasn't sure if it was one or two weeks but it looks like it was about a week: 10/22- 10/27, six days with 2 days for traveling.

I think he said that he will be filming some scenes w/o Gemma (from now unil the 31st?) And then have some time off in early Nov. and then film for the last 3 weeks in Nov. - dec. 3rd.

Monica said...

Exclusive - Producer Bill Mechanic Updates us on the Movie Adaptation of TORSO

The project I’m talking about is Torso, and it’s the film adaptation of the Marc Andreyko and Brian Michael Bendis' graphic novel of the same name. Currently David Fincher is attached to direct the film with rumors of Jake Gyllenhaal and Matt Damon leading the cast.

Jake and Matt will act together or one of the two will lead the cast?

suvee said...

Even though his trip back home was brief, judging by his smile at Heathrow, I think it's safe to say it hit the spot (so to speak).

I have to tell bobbyanna how much I loved her "It's Not a Fantasy" post. What a pleasure to read such a clear, concise and (gasp) factual description of the reality of J & R's relationship. I loved every word.... thanks for taking the time to write and share it with us. :)

extra said...

What a beautiful smile, i guess he enjoyed his trip to L.A.!!

Loved bobbyanna's comments about J&R in the previous post, thanks so much for expressing the obvious.

I got a name said...

So the definition of "facts" are positive things that fit your ideal of this relationship that you read in blogs and tabloids such as "Jake told friends he missed the kids". And I am a hater because I see a different side to things. I have been a Jake fan forever I am not a "hater" all I was saying is that to ME the references to Reese and the kids as Jake's family are premature. Obviously he's involved with the kids. They are probably going in that direction. But I seriously doubt he's playing a dad role just yet. Just my opinion.

Nice try, "I got a name." But you're not convincing anyone.

I don't remember anyone describing facts the way you did in your post. Nor did anyone call you a hater. I think that might be a guilty conscience speaking!

If you don't like what people talk about here, go somewhere else. It's easy, really! Or try to change the discussion by posting about something else and not criticizing and/or mischaracterizing the way you think other posters here feel.

Gyllenbabble said...

Monica - interesting find. So the producer says all the online rumors are probably true. Hmm.

I hope Jake gets to take a long, relaxing vacation before diving back into a Fincher project!

So I wonder if Jake would be playing young Elliot Ness or the serial killer.

(Trying to watch the video now but it's very slow.)

All of which reminds is of that mysterious tattoo of Jake's from two summers ago. I'm sure FL rememers it...

UltraViolet said...

Oops - that was me, above.

bobbyanna said...

I think the horse is dead, but can I clarify? I never meant to imply Jake was replacing "daddy" and I didn't say that.

I did say, if people assume he fulfills an important role in their lives, and acts in a "fatherly" way, it's an assumption based on reality, as we have actually seen it.

"I got a name," we really aren't that far apart. People here know Deacon and Ava have a father who's present in their lives. But Jake's important and present in their lives, too.

Jake isn't replacing their father. I just think these kids live in a bigger world, and are able to have love and affection for other people, too. It's not a competitive thing at all. I think I understand what you mean, but I really didn't require a reminder.

I also get a kick out of chiding Jake as a daddy figure. Seeing how he connects with little kids is a beautiful thing.

Anonymous said...

hi everyone

I have a question

How will Jake vote while he is in London? Will they have a special voting place for him over there

Anonymous said...

he probably voted by absente ballot or i think la has early voting so maybe he voted before he left

brothers spy said...

It looks like Jake only got one week off, not two. Oh well, I'm glad he had the chance to have some time off.

Monica,

I don't think they are saying that both Jake and Matt will star. I think they are saying that rumor has it that either Matt or Jake will star. (Those have been the two people most frequently mentioned in the lead role). That's how I understood it, but I could be wrong.

I think we already know it's going to be Matt.

Although, I want to point out, it would be really cool if they both were to star. In any event, I heard they would being filming Torso next fall for whatever it's worth.

brothers spy said...

Correction: it should read begin, not being.

It's late. I. Must. Go. To. Bed.

Good night, y'all.

P.S. You need not worry. December 3rd will be here before you know it. Then Jake will have about 10 months off --- not including when he has to promote his upcoming films.

brothers spy said...

One more thing...I promise...

To add my 2 cents.

I think both Jake and Abbey play major roles in the kids lives. Abbey was interviewed last week where she talked about how much she loved the kids and how well she gets along with them. I think the same is true of Jake.

It's not a zero sum game, as anyone from a mixed family will tell you. Because the kids get along with Jake doesn't mean that he's "replacing" their real father anymore than hanging out with and liking Abbey means that they are "replacing" their real mother.

They all just seem to get along real well.

verdeblusm said...

Maybe I have a repetitive and obsessive behavior,but as I said recently, I have a feeling:
December 2007 Jay Z and Beioncé denied engagement rumors (they tie the knot on april 2008)…
Scarlett Johansson denied rumors of an engagement but on May 2008 she has announced her engagement to Ryan Reynolds(28 Sep 2008:they exchanged wedding vows!!!!!!)
The same Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck…
On Aug 4 reps for both Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon have denied any rumors about engagement...
I'm waiting for Jake hair cut crossing my fingers,in spite of haters et similia...
Many hugs to you all but especially for Sass...

gabbana said...

Love the jeans and the smile!

It will be intersting to see whether he will be involved in "Torso" or not. Personally I would be surprised if he works with Fincher so soon again.

He has two other projects ahaid, will be intersting to see what happens.

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATILDA LEDGER

:)

UltraViolet said...

Slow day out there, kids. I don't think anyone posted this yesterday. Bobbyanna, look away - it's from Lainey:

After spending several months in London shooting the Prince of Persia, Jake Gyllenhaal was home with Reese Witherspoon this weekend looking relaxed and relieved too. They made it work through a summer apart – my sources say they promised each other they wouldn’t go more than 2 weeks without seeing each other, which of course involved Reese flying to visit Jakey undercover every fortnight.

Check them out all happy and sh*t after breakfast in Santa Monica. Feels like we’re close to a carpet premiere, non?

She’s always game for a little famewhoring to support her films.

Will Reese and Jake walk together for Four Christmases.

Secretly I hope it’s no. Because that would only benefit Vince Vaughn who was apparently a huge mother douche during that entire shoot. More and more, it appears he and Aniston truly did deserve each other.


Nothing new, really, except for the two week rule :)

chica said...

Well that was a quick visit and from the smile on his face it was quick but sweet!

I saw that yesterday from Lainey UV, nothing new but they do seem to hook-up every 2 weeks .

Thanks for that link monica. I've heard the rumors about Matt and Jake regarding Torso but I thought Fincher decided on Matt for the role.

agent_krycek said...

my sources say they promised each other they wouldn’t go more than 2 weeks without seeing each other, which of course involved Reese flying to visit Jakey undercover every fortnight.

Which, yet again, she's got from speculation on here *rolls eyes*

UltraViolet said...

Hee - we should have our own gossip column!

This is really not even news, but as I said - slow news day. This guy talks about doing some sessions for the Brothers soundtrack in early October. No details at all on the movie.

Yeah, I know. But it's something!

josie said...

I knew that quote from Lainey sounded familiar, geez. Again if we need any further proof that online gossip scum sniff around fan sites for information.

Love the smile on his face in these pictures, it looks like he enjoyed his brief visit. Thanks for the link UV, any information on Brothers is great!

agent_krycek said...

Well, it's a pity Deacon isn't over with him right now, as I'm sure he'd have loved the snow that's currently coming down - snowflakes the size of small countries are currently falling, and I'm not sure I'll be getting to work in the morning! A light dusting of snow and London grinds to a halt, whats currently falling is probably the heaviest snow I've seen in years - and it's only flaming October *Yikes*

UltraViolet said...

Aww. And I can say "Aww" because the snow is nowhere near me! I wonder if Jake is cursing the snow or enjoying it?

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Anonymous said...

oh i forgot to mention it also said jake and deacon were skipping after he had picked him up

FluorescentLamp said...

This is the link you were looking for anon.

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal quickly fell back into their domestic routine last week when he made a whirlwind visit home to Los Angeles from the London set of "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time." On Thursday, the petite Oscar winner and the lately strapping, stringy-haired actor were captured by paparazzi as they went for a jog. The next day, Jake made a school run with Reese's son Deacon, who just turned 5, with the two seen skipping along the sidewalk, according to People. On Saturday, the low-key lovebirds, who are rumored to be house hunting in London, reportedly held hands over breakfast in Santa Monica, Calif., before picking up Deacon and Witherspoon's other tyke, Ava, 9, and heading to the actress's estate in Ojai. By Monday, the likely jet-lagged Gyllenhaal was back in England.

bobbyanna said...

I remember reading about this a while ago, and I really did think things were all settled for Matt Damon to be in TORSO for Fincher. I remember feeling disappointed when I read it, too. So I sincerely hope this latest info is accurate and Jake still has a shot to work with Fincher again. But I agree, UV. Jake would need a really long rest before he jumps into another Fincher stew.:)

I looked away.

bobbyanna said...

Dang! I'm babbling on about TORSO and you guys are in Ojai!! :) :)
I'm really glad to know they are going out there. I can just imagine how great it will look for the Holidays...perfect spot for people to have a wedding, too...

suvee said...

fyi..... as reported in today's USAToday, Reese will be a presenter at the CMA Awards, Nov.12 in Nashville.

I love that they have the Ojai ranch to escape to. Plus, it really would be a lovely setting for a holiday wedding. :)

Monica said...

Bobbyana, I agree with you on Torso.


The next day, Jake made a school run with Reese's son Deacon, who just turned 5, with the two seen skipping along the sidewalk, according to People.

so cute :):):)

UltraViolet said...

I know, Monica - that image is too adorable for words. As much as I'd love to have seen video of that, the reason they probably did it was that there were no pps around. It's really sweet to think of them just unguarded and having fun.

So, so sweet.

Monica said...

UV, Steph has posted a new picture of Jake at the airport:

shondra said...

Jake sure loves those jeans, glad to have him back here even briefly, i'm sure he enjoyed his time off. Love that bit from MSN,and happy to hear that they were able to get away to Ojai. I assmume there was a lot of time splitting during this time with Reese and Ryan due to Deacon's birthday, i saw a few pics of Ryan, Deacon and the nanny and the kids and the nanny during this period so I assume she did a lot of traveling back and forth.

I would love to see Jake work with Fincher too, but I think it's a bit too soon IMO.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, thanks, Monica. Such a tease, he is. Look at that hairline. We want to see your hair, Jake!

Anonymous said...

agent_krycek said...

Well, thanks for that well thought out and interesting contribution anon 9:36 AM

Looks like another drought time coming up, the only thing on my alert this morning was about the film no one wants to see - S Darko, which sounds like a worse idea everytime I see a bit about it, and didn't seem worth repeating over here.

bobbyanna said...

Has anyone read Torso, or is anyone familiar with the graphic novel series? I am curious about it. Morseo because it's Fincher, and because I find it more intriguing then the UMP or a Joe Namath biopic.

I cannot wait to see Ellen grill Reese when she appears to promote Four Christmases. Wonder if she'll do Jon Stewart? Letterman might tease her, so might Leno. Altho, she was able to NOT let Leno go there last time, with Penelope.
This time she'll be talking about divorced families, etc.

FluorescentLamp said...

Has anyone read Torso, or is anyone familiar with the graphic novel series?

I've only read the editorial reviews on Amazon and the like. Besides it being a sickeningly graphic story (not my cuppa at all, dismembered bodies make me feel all queasy) it's also a real downer where Eliot Ness is concerned: vis a vis, this later chapter in his life (after the much-heralded war to bring down Capone), leaving the FBI, moving to Cleveland to become Director of Public Safety and so forth and so on.

agent_krycek said...

I'm more interested in Torso as a Jake project as well. As a Brit Namath's name means nothing to me, sorry, never heard of him before this project - and I've never been that massively keen on Space based stories (although Silent Running still does make me cry.)

sag actor said...

I have not read Torso, but I would love Jake to do something like that instead of the Namath project. My reasons are different than your's AK on that, I know all about Namath, just not interested in seeing his story on the big screen.

Anonymous said...

I like the idea of Torso too, as long as it's a good story and not gratuitous violence. Joe Namath, would be ok too I'm sure, but I'm not crazy too see it (yet anyway!). I read some of the PoP script, and it seems like it's an older version? I liked the language, very Arabian Nights-ish, but not too much, but some American-isms too, so it must have been before the British accent? I like feisty Tamina too, in fact I thought it could do with some more of it, she's a better horsewoman, a decent swordswoman and I like that she swore at Dastan when he gets too full of himself! I realize the story takes place back in the 6th century, but I wonder if they need to be a leetle careful with how a woman is portrayed, too much slave-girl stuff might turn off some women? If they are equal in life, then she can fall into the arms of her Prince. Just speculating. It does seem like a lot of fun, and can have great beauty. This was a draft, I take it? :)

This was posted on the J&R thread over on IHJ:

I have it from a source who's reliable (and truthful) about half the time that Jake and Reese are already married. They were quietly married abroad after the Vogue interview.
Yeah,I know. I don't thinkthey couldbe married secretly, it would have got out by now or announced.Also the poster is a newbie.

Batten the troll-hatches, folks!

Whilst not saying I believe it, it wouldn't actually surprise me, (and would fit in quite nicely with my ring theory ;-) )

UltraViolet said...

Hee, Agent K. Still working on ring-theory? :)

They do like to keep us guessing!

FluorescentLamp said...

Oh this marriage theory works quite nicely with that bit in her Vogue interview where she talks about having just been to Italy with her amor, visiting Trevi Fountain, throwing a coin over her shoulder, and not divulging her wish. Yes, quite nicely indeed. ;-)

Bette said...

FL exactly, but I just don't think they could pull it off. I've always maintained the two are way too high profile for it to have gone unnoticed, and wouldn't they have had to file some paperwork in the states so their marriage was legally recognized? Somebody would have leaked the information by now.

Hello said...

This was over in blind items on Dlisted
http://www.dlisted.com/

Which celebrity couple has secretly wed but still haven’t told anyone except their immediate families? One is more famous than the other, but you would recognize both names. He wouldn’t mind telling people, but she is extremely protective of their privacy after a negative experience with the paparazzi a while back

Narcissa said...

Thanks hello :) but.... we take blind items with a pinch of salt here! ;)

agent_krycek said...

There's definatley a bucket load of salt with blind items, but..... hmmmmm, well, I'm saying nothing :D

bobbyanna said...

O. MG. It could happen. I also discovered that Chris, Jake's gorgeously wonderful BFF, has been in Italy for a while, doing some cooking thing, and will be coming home end of November. So that dovetails nicely with J&R going over there for a visit,...also..They could have arranged it thru the American Embassy in Roma...I could riff on this for days and days...:) :) :)

OTOH, I would not be surprised at all,to discover she had fittings for a special dress while in Paris for the Vogue shoot. With the designer guy from Nina Ricci. I mentioned that before. Maybe they did get married in Paris or Rome, but they wil do it again at home... They have parents and relatives and you know the families would want to be there. Mothers fathers, sister, brother.

And no way Ava and Deacon would keep it a secret. If they know. Not possible. It's too big a deal. They would slip in front of friends. Who have parents. My theory is that they will get married here, and maybe she was dealing with her dress in Paris. I guess we're all pretty much saying "when" not "If" :)

Do you remember when Reese said publically that she would never just live with someone if she wasn't married. She said it a few months ago...just before Jake moved in.

To quote my favorite scene in Moonstruck: "I'm so confused!"

chica said...

Secretly married? Like you said bobbyanna, that would be a hard thing to keep quiet this lonG. There were some things that happened over the summer that made me think that a wedding was in the works. Hmmmmm...

I could definitely believe an Ojai wedding is in the works, special fitting and all Bobbyanna, but I don't think they are secretly married. But oh that blind item does intrigue me! Maybe they did pull it off. Who knows. It will come out eventually.

josie said...

That BI doesn't sound like Jake and Reese IMO, sounds more like Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend.

A secret wedding would be hard to pull off for them, but i do think wedding plans are in the works.

Thanks for the Torso link Monica.
It would be great if Jake did this but I would love for him to take on the role of the killer, not Ness.

As far as the marriage rumors are concerned I always thought that they may be planning it for next year until I read the Vogue interview and the mention that they went to Rome. We will find out one way or the other sooner or later!

Oh that poor dear. :(

Jake Gyllenhaal's daily regimen:

Fitness expert Simon Waterson prescribed this daily regimen to build the normally lithe Jake Gyllenhaal into a hulking warrior

5.30am Pre-workout snack: half a banana, some nuts and an espresso.

6am An hour-and-a-half cardio outdoors workout while wearing a 20lb flak jacket to simulate the weight of armour. Interval training - 10min uphill sprint, followed by abs exercises, eg, sit-ups, at the top of the hill. Repeat sequence five times, then a 10min run, followed by stretching exercises.

7.30am An egg-white omelette, a small protein shake and an isotonic drink to replenish salts lost during training.

Lunch Baked potato with tuna and salad.

6-7pm An hour of resistance training using cables to simulate sword fights, pull-ups, press-ups, abs exercises using weights; finish with stretching.

7-8pm: An hour-long deep tissue massage

Dinner: Soup and a protein shake

Snacks/supplements Two litres of water, protein bars, dark chocolate, supplements rich in omega-3, 6 and 9. No foods containing refined sugar, occasional glass of wine allowed.


Thanks, I think, for linking that, anon.

Oy!!! I would have posted earlier, but I had to take a nap after reading Jake's regimen!

UltraViolet said...

Dear god! That regimen is torture. Makes me sort of hope they didn't get married (which, I know, is probably true). No cake, no champagne. No extra energy ;)

FluorescentLamp said...

Here's the best part and most agreeable part of his whole regimen:

7-8pm: An hour-long deep tissue massage

Yes please.

UltraViolet said...

Don't those deep-tissue massages hurt?

Anonymous said...

I think Jake was accustomed to all this training from his Jar Head days.

He has done all this training for Jar Head, remember in Jar Head when he went without sleep for training and he went through the grand Marine challenge

FluorescentLamp said...

Don't those deep-tissue massages hurt?

Only if done wrong. ;-)

gabbana said...

That "regimen" sounds like complete up-turn....
Just coming back from my holiday hotel breakfast I think I just eat more than he gets the whole day...:-))

Gemma looks stunning - she must have a very busy, great agent - after PoP she will be a star.

Brothers Spy mentioned that Jake will have 10 months off after PoP - but with the shootings of "Joe Namath" and "moon project" starting in 2009 I doubt this.

Until today we have seen R & J only on paparazzi pictures and videos - so I hope Reese will take him to the "Four christmasses" premiere - this would be their first "official" pictures.

I don't think that's going to happen. They've been careful not to distract from their movies. Rendition and Penelope were all about the movie and anything that promoted the movie. Making a debut appearance on the red carpet for a movie premiere as a couple would distract. They don't want to be Tom and Katie.

agent_krycek said...

I can say with utter confidence that I'd last all of 34 seconds of Jake's regime, and 30 of those seconds would be spent looking for something to beat my alarm clock to death with when it goes off at 5.30am

Bette said...

AK, I couldn't agree more! D:

josie said...

That's some regime and must be hard for him because we all know he loves to eat! Well, i'm sure it will be all worth it in the end.

shondra said...

If Brothers spy's contact is correct, Jake will be filming Pop in London when Four Christmases is released on 11/27. A movie premiere is usally the week the movie is released, in this case it would be the week of 11/23. It doesn't sound like he will be back in the states for Thanksgiving.

I assume there will be a premiere in London though so perhaps but I have a feeling that it won't happen. A lot of HW couples I noticed don't do the red carpet thing that much anymore. J. Garner and B. Affleck come to mind.

Anonymouse said...

Hey no Reese sightings or pictures this week in LA, she hasn't been seen since Jake went back to London.
I wonder where she has been all week

Monica said...

Good night, babblers!

After reading this "regimen" can only say that I'm proud of Jake.
:)

Reese out and about in Brentwood:
Reese

Don't know if you have seen it, but it seems the haters are using your name in comments UV.

Where are they doing this and why? How immature.

paula said...

I love that grey turtleneck Reese is wearing, she looks so relaxed and happy ,i'm sure she misses him already. Thanks for the link monica.

I have no idea about the comments and what's going on so I can't comment!

There are a couple of stories in this weeks rags about Jake and Reese :Us, In Touch and Ok. About him coming back for Deacon's b'day, etc. Nothing new just some cute pics (we already seen).

sag actor said...

OT: a better explanation on what really happened with Jake and the play he was rumored to be in, Farragut North:


"Farragut North” developed a bit like a harum-scarum campaign. The actor Jake Gyllenhaal played Stephen in a workshop reading in 2007, and Second Stage Theater announced plans to mount it in its 2007-8 season. Then the director Mike Nichols was rumored to be interested in directing the play on Broadway, with Mr. Gyllenhaal, and the Second Stage production was scuttled. Warner Brothers acquired the film rights and brought in Mr. Clooney’s and Leonardo DiCaprio’s production companies to co-produce. The Nichols production, whether it was ever really likely, fell through; Mr. Willimon, meanwhile, finished a screenplay version for the Hollywood producers, who are continuing to develop a film project, possibly with Mr. DiCaprio as Stephen.

That's some regime, I'm sure jake wil stick to it!

Hope everyone had a safe Halloween and remembered to set their clocks back an hour.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I took your advice sag actor and watched DD again ver the weekend, what an incredible performance from Jake. Here is an interesting review of his performance:


"One of the strengths of the film is Jake Gyllenhaal’s sensitive portrayal of a mentally ill teen. The film never explicitly says Donnie is a paranoid schizophrenic, though it’s strongly implied. Like Hammer’s Two Faces film, Donnie Darko explores the hypocrisy that surrounds its main character, in an upscale suburb of D.C. Played out against the hidden, less-acknowledged, less-stigmatized sicknesses and addictions of other characters in the film, Donnie’s illness seems oddly normal and manageable, even heroic, in how he and his family deal with it.

bobbyanna said...

DD really was an extraordinary performance by Jake, sag actor/OONP. It's my favorite Halloween movie! I've seen some interviews he did talking about the way he understood his character. Good stuff.

OT: I didn't know this, but Joaquin Phoenix and Matilda Rose Ledger share the same birthday!

Hmmm...

Perhaps Jake has a Mont Blanc diamond in mind???

No update from that fly by night poster over on IHJ regarding the marriage rumor.

Gemma atherton over the weekend in Morocco with her sister, what a smoking body!:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1082636/Bond-girl-Gemma-Arterton-soaks-sun-black-bikini-waits-prince.html

I remember brothers spy saying that Jake had some scenes to film w/o Gemma in the UK during that 2 week break 10/24 - 11/6? Anyway either they are not done filming in Morocco or she took a abreak from Bond PR and headed to Morocco with her sister.

extra said...

Ok I found Brothers spy original comments regarding Jake's shooting schedule, I hope you dont mind if I repost it here:


"Then between October 24th and November 8th, Gemma will be away doing promotion for "Quantum of Solace." It's possible that Jake won't have the entire two weeks off. After all, there is another scene i'm certain they're shooting in Britain, which doesn't involve Gemma, in the "Kings Baths" which is between Dastan and his older brother Tus. But other than that, and maybe a short scene or two, every scene Jake is in includes Gemma.

Therefore, Jake is CERTAIN to get at least one week off.

During that week, they will film the scenes between Ben Kingsley and Garsiv (as well as Dastan's brothers) at the Palace, after Dastan escapes and goes on the run. (There are several scenes).

Then beginning on November 13th (with the Icelander --- and possibly Ben Kingsley) done their parts, they will film the Green Screen stuff until December 3rd.
I think that's a pretty good estimate of what is happening in England. So if I had to venture a guess, i'd say Jake will be done on October 31st and not return until November 10th or so. But that's speculation. It fits the timeline though".

There were a few revisions: Jake was off from 10/22-10/27 about six days so he just got about one week off. It's quite possible he filmed the scenes BS described above that involved Dastan and his older brother Tus called the "Kings Baths" that doesn't involve Gemma.

If that takes 4-5 days to film and he is done with that part, that means that is of again from 10/31-11/10, the original timeline? If so he may just be able to be back in the States in time to vote in person! The weekend pics of Gemma and her sis in Morocco may be just her taking a brak from promoting because I think that they are done filming over there and she is just taking advantage of the apartments/hotel with pools that Disney got for the cast.

We need B. spy to confirm!!

office of nancy pelosi said...

I know I don't have to remind everyone here that are posting from the US : Please vote tomorrow!! It's the most important election in my lifetime so far and turnout is very important.

Sorry UV/FL is this is political, but I just had to post, i'm so nervous, anxious and excited about this election.

If Jake is still in the UK then I would assume he voted early when he was here or vote by absentee ballot.

ihj said...

From IHJ: ET Alert:

Entertainment Tonight - November 6th, 2008

- Jake Gyllenhaal springs into action! Catch advance shots from his video-game-turned gotta-see flick, "Prince of Persia"

Anonymouse said...

With Jake being done in December!

I am curious, I wonder if Reese will visit London again, or if Jake will visit LA again in November?
I doubt Jake will be back in LA again this month, he only has one more proposed month in London anyway.
I think Reese might make one more quick trip over there before he comes home
Maybe after her Nashville November 12 trip

yay or nay?

Anonymous said...

x17online says these pictures were taken the day after Halloween of Reese (11/1) but she is wearing the same clothes and jewlery as she did in the 10/31 pics (only the shoes are different). Same old xx17, anyway she is carring a platter of fruit that looks livke it was from a catering place and has the biggest smile on her face:

I agree with you OONP! Please everyone who can in the U.S. please VOTE tomorrow!!

I know Jake and Reese would say the same. ;)

I hope Jake voted when he was in L.A. or by absentee ballot.

sheba baby said...

I miss Jake Watch, sniff. But I found a great home here on gyllenbabble, it's the only Jake site i visit!

I thought the ET segment on Jake/Pop was on 11/10? Thanks for the heads up!

Brothers spys Pop contact seems pretty accurate regarding the filming, including the time off. If it's still on track then it's quite possible that he may be on his way back to the US if he did finish that scene without Gemma he discribed, it was suppose to end on 10/31 and he was suppose to go back to the Uk aropund 11/10 until 12/3. if so, then there would be no need for Reese to make a return trip.

Don't forget to vote tomorrow!!

Vicky said...

"I miss Jake Watch, sniff. But I found a great home here on gyllenbabble, it's the only Jake site i visit!"

The same with me sheba baby, except for IHJ this is the only Jake site I visit.

I am not American but I am very excited for you all about the elections tomorrow.

BTW were are UVand FL they haven't been on here for a few days, hope all is well.

UltraViolet said...

We're here!

Thanks for the ET heads-up, ihj. It could be the report we first heard about, or it could be a teaser for the longer report. In either case, I can't wait to see some PoP action.

Also, for Bobbyanna and I think one other person who could never get the Reese balcony pic from Vogue to load, maybe thiswill work?

bobbyanna said...

Dang, UV! You are one persistent lady! :) :) :) It worked. The necklace is stunning. Reese is definitely cvhanneling Grace Kelly.

OONP,get real, I voted last week! It's all anyone can talk about. No matter where you go: bank, supermarket, mall,it's the main topic of conversation. I have never seen so many people engaged. It's a beautiful thing!

I am very nervous, too. Any semblance of a weight loss program has been tossed out the window. I'm eating as I type! :)

On another note, some very sad news. They've just announced that Senator Obama's Grandmother, 'Toot'
has passed away.

chica said...

I just heard about Obama's Grandmother passing away too bobbyanna. What sad news on the eve of the election.

I will be voting first thing tomorrow morning, there is so much excitement and energy around this election!

Thanks for the heads up on Jake and ET ihj.

office of nancy pelosi said...

He was basically raised by his Grandmother, my condolences and prayers are with him and his family.

Get out tomorrow and vote, no matter how long it takes.

suvee said...

I voted last week..... and now I am trying to stay calm and optimistic! I think I am probably among the older Babblers, but I have to say that this is easily the most important election in my lifetime.

And how very sad that Sen. Obama's beloved grandmother has passed away. My deepest sympathy to him and his family.

I miss Jake Watch, too...... but I love this place. UV and FL have created the perfect Jake safe haven. :)

get real said...

So very heartbreaking to hear about Sen. Obama's grandmother. :( I know she is looking down on him and supporting him now and tomorrow. Please everyone VOTE!! Suvee, I agree this is the most important election of my lifetime too.

Wanted to also thank you all for the Jake workout routine. Oy, I am exhausted just reading it, lol. But good on him for being so committed to PoP.

I miss JakeWatch too. But am so grateful to UV and FL for creating this blog...it's awesome. ;)

And thanks for the PoP on ET heads up! Can't wait to see a glimpse of the movie and Jake as Daston! I wonder if we will get to hear him do an English accent?!?! Hope so.

bobbyanna said...

I'm wondering about speculation that Jake might go back to Morocco? Eldest Daughter, Lisa, is going to Morocco on the 14th and she's all excited because she'll visit the area where they're shooting PoP. She said, "So, Matt Damon will be around bcz he is making a movie, and Jake Gyllenhaal is making a movie, so maybe I'll get to see Jake!" She is a huge Matt Damon fan. She might've been referring to the fact PoP is one of many movies being made in Morocco, even if it's just second unit stuff not necessarily with Jake,....or maybe she was being mean.

agent_krycek said...

So sad the Sen Obama's grandmother won't get to see him become President today :(,

josie said...

Such sad news about Obama's Grandmother passing away the day before election day, he has said that she made him the man he is today.

Please everyone, vote today.

UltraViolet said...

It's so so sad about Obama's grandmother. I can't even think about it.

We do have a new Election Day post up.
