Thanks for getting the pics up and the reports from the extra but can I say what an obnoxious cow, and I HATE Jake being called "jakey poo" urgh.

Narcissa said...

Ditto

UltraViolet said...

Well, I liked all the details about the set. It's fun to hear about how huge the production is. And I laughed at the texting business. We know Jake can't be without that phone for long!

Agree on the Jakey-poo business. And I went back and forth on whether to include the stupid comment. I deleted it now, so people will have to click to read it :)

agent_krycek said...

That woman is an obnoxious cow, nuff said.

Err, must pull you up on the Liam Gallagher comment, I used to drink in the same pub as him, and whilst his brother Noel is actually a very funny, witty and intelligent man, I remain convineced, through personal experience, that Liam is in fact not his brother, just his pet monkey that he shaves!

Ahhh, the drought is over, my raindance must have worked.

UltraViolet said...

LOL, Agent K. Sorry to offend! I prefer Liam to Noel behind the microphone, but I know he's much more of a nightmare in "real" life.

And look at you - hanging with Oasis. You need to find Jake's local!

I'm curious about Jake's dinner companion(s). We need details.

chica said...

And indeed it pours and I'm not complaining! Looks loie he like to cover up his hair while not on set.

I like reading the comments from the blogger regarding working on Pop,but ditto on Jakey-poo, it's not something you call a grown man.

Thanks!!

Bette said...

Texting Reese! Hee. I love it, and the new pics.

bobbyanna said...

See! I knew once the world realized he was in the London area normal life would kick in: cell phones, blogs, paparrazzi. I think it is too adorable he is constantly texting Reese. Like they are having this endless conversation...;)

I'll ignore the blogger's style.
That revolting "jakey-poo" gives her away! She is totally smitten and trying much too hard to act as if he doesn't affect her at all. Hah! In your dreams! (I don't want to discourage her blogging.) That set sounds amazing. Jerry B knows how to spend his money!

Thanks UV! I feel so much calmer today.

agent_krycek said...

The behind the scenes stuff was good, but the Jakey poo stuff winds me up big time as well, it's a name I wouldn't call a new born baby, never mind a fully grown man.

agent_krycek said...

That revolting "jakey-poo" gives her away! She is totally smitten and trying much too hard to act as if he doesn't affect her at all.

Yup, agree with that completely, she's been sniffing round, and he's completely uninterested (can't say I blame him given the writting style of that blog, is it so difficult to type 'have to' instead of hafta?)

extra said...

Mr. G finally is emerging, it's about time!!! Still not digging the hair but it's just for Pop.

Love the texting Reese all the time between takes, not surprisd!

Sounds like Jake uses his texting as a weapon to discourage beautiful young girls' attention.

Bless him! The WENN photos say he was leaving thru the back door.

UltraViolet said...

Updated with the HQs from IHJ. Thanks, Stephanie!

The pics re so much better bigger. You can really see Jake's bemused expression.

josie said...

The drought and now the flood, keep them coming! The look is bemused UV and I love the blogger's description of Jake texting Reese, the man is never too far from cell phone!

FluorescentLamp said...

One only need look at her blog roll to see why she calls Jake that...perezhilton anyone?

It's so funny how Jake's Cipriani outfit is parts Gallagher brother and parts that other British pop singer. With whom Gallagher brother(s) have that longstanding war of snark.

agent_krycek said...

With whom Gallagher brother(s) have that longstanding war of snark.

Damon Albarn?

FluorescentLamp said...

No, that Robbie Williams guy. I've seen him wearing sort of the same type of gear.

suvee said...

What an unexpected surprise this Saturday morning! Thanks, UV, for getting these new pics up so quickly for our enjoyment. Sure hope this recent little flurry of Jake pics will continue for a little while longer..... this drought has been a killer.

I detest the "Jakey-poo" thing too.....it's demeaning.

I always get a kick out of hearing Jake and Reese texting stories..... love how they need to connect with each other any way they can.

agent_krycek said...

Ah, Robbie 'woe is me, my life is so hard, lets write another self indulgent dirge and don't forget to rip off another artist while I'm at it' Williams

(I'm not a fan, could you tell :p)

'The fat dancer from Take That' as the brilliant Noel G dubbed him :D

office of nancy pelosi said...

More of Mr. G this morning, let's hope the drought is over!!!

Interesting blog, love the text story and I agree with the Jakey-poo crap.

get real said...

Wooo, lots of fantastic new pics!!!! So glad to see Jake looking so sexy and so happy! And yeah guess he was eating the apple in the previous pics to make his face look different.

Love him in London, although I wish it was NYC. ;)

As for that girls account...rolls eyes. She sounds annoying to say the least.

Anonymous said...

Heh, I thought Liam had a long-standing row with Blur too - he's very cute, but too much of a bad-boy even for me, I like Noel, although he's been known to be a bit touchy as well. Jake looks great. ;)

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
OMG

He still beautiful and sexy. I know that some people don't like, but I liked it.

Thanks to all photos and information, UV!

sass said...

Morning babblers:)
UV FL, Thanks for more beautiful snaps of our gorgeous Jake.
This is a fantastic morning for all of us.
Back later,
TY AGAIN

sass said...

Hi again, TY again!
I missed the article; I just read it, tried to R-clik the link and LMAO when her comment popped up:)
So Jake is texting Reese all the time:):) how sweet, especially since my Gmail is inundated recently with Jake and Reese break up stories. arrgh.
I am not online as much anymore, certainly not more than two to three times a day; thank God for you two; I wouldn't want to worry about my favorite actor unnecessarily. I love his new-found happiness. I'm a romantic Leo the Lion at heart..so says Barack (it shows with his wife) and I love Jake happy and in love; it's a wonderful state to be in, and I wish him a wonderful love filled life.

The last set of pictures at that restaurant, Jake looks really tired.

Monica said...

Today is anniversary of Syephan!

Happy birthday Stephen Gyllenhaal!

gabbana said...

Oh my, one day away and coming back to this....:-))

Very interesting details about the set but "Jakey Poo" and "Reese girly" - how old is that blogger? You have to get used to her writing style....

Love him eating that apple - the first comments "he has got full cheeks" are hilarious.

And I love him looking a bit like the Robster in those pictures....I am trying to overlook that Gallagher person reference...:-))

We will probably have to wait until next year before we see him in his "full costume" - I don´t think Disney wants to give away too much too early.

So good to see him again.....

Monica said...

I'm not worry about how that "person" referred to the Jake. It's waste of time.

Jake is more than that!

UltraViolet said...

I agree, Monica. But I also think there was some fun stuff in the blog. Like the way she described the behavior of the extras - it reminded me of Ricky Gervais "Extras" show. And I enjoyed the details on the elaborate set. I wasn't bothered about the rest, really. I like the glimpse behind the curtain.

Also - updated the post with some new Cipriani photos from IHJ.

bobbyanna said...

Fl, I agree with you. Jake looks thinner, less bulky.

Monica said...

Yes, some passages are fun. She is a good observer.

lawgoddess said...

A wealth of riches.:)

Jake looks healthy and happy, and after the long famine it is so great to see pictures two days in a row.

Sounds like Jake is missing Reese a lot.

Thank you UV and FL , for maintaining this place and keeping us apprised.Big hugs.

Anonymous said...

Anon 7:24 here, sorry UV I didn't mean for my comment to come over like it did, I did like the details about the set and production (and texting Reese all the time). It was just some of her comments got to me.

Monica said...

That person who won the auction again post some details of his meeting with Jake:
DC Forum

I don't know where is the best place for this, but all serious Heathens should know, from Jake, that not only was it Heath's idea to switch the shirts in the final scene, but also his idea that the young Ennis' shirtsleeves should be too short.

Wasn't he something?

These tidbits also:

•"Heath wanted to have a paternal relationship with his directors…he didn't get that with Ang…" Jake agreed with the accounts that said this was deliberate, that Ang kind of refused to help Heath along to add to the frustration in his performance. "He was very loyal to his directors, even when the movies weren't very good." "Like The Brothers Grimm," I agreed. Jake didn't disagree, replying that Heath "loved" Terry Gilliam.

•I don't hear all that well, and since Jake seemed kind of soft spoken in the interviews I had seen, I worried a little about understanding what he said. I never actually had any problem--but I sure did notice that the his voice did drop noticeably when he spoke of Heath.

•I told him I had some of Heath's Brokeback costume. He smiled widely when I told him I had the "You bet" postcard shirt--and the smile wiped right off his face when I looked him in the eye and added "and the Reunion shirt." He actually drew back a little.

Oh, to have been able to read his mind in that moment…


That made me cry!

Very nice. :)

He looks a bit tired in the latest set of pics, but it's still good to see him!

From Lainey....

Lonely Jakey in London
Jakey Gyllenhaal had dinner last night at Cipriani and left via the back door, hoping to elude photographers. Not successful.

Jakey’s been in London shooting the Prince of Persia for what seems like ever while Reese has been tied up with her kids in LA. Apparently they Skype whenever they can even though the time difference makes things wonky. It’s also the children he wants to keep in touch with too. Awww….

I’m told she has however managed to sneak in at least once without detection for a few days…

Still…long distance sucks hard. Especially since these two have become very, very serious about each other. Star Magazine says they’re about to break because of it. Coming from Star Magazine, this means you should believe the opposite.

Filming on Prince of Persia is expected to continue well into the fall which is why Jake’s next film Brothers with Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman has been delayed to next year – possibly summer. Brothers was originally scheduled for a December release, especially since test screenings supposedly prompted Oscar buzz.

But without Jake promoting it, it won’t stand a chance in such a loaded season. As such, they are reportedly taking it to Cannes instead and launching the campaign from there so it looks like Jakey gets an extended break after Christmas when he can rejoin his girl.

Just another 8 weeks, right?

Monica said...

8 weeks??
this film is a trilogy?

FluorescentLamp said...

Tell me again how Lainey makes any money/has any connections, when all she does is put her own spin on tabloid stories already out there. Which is what most of us do already. It's called speculating. She's another one with the cute *gag* pet names for Jake. At least she doesn't call him Carb Face (her pet name for Ryan P). Horribly horribly rude and insulting. Yet...a little bit funny.

UltraViolet said...

Hi Monica. It does sort of feel as if this film is taking forever to shoot! It's supposed to be the beginning of a trilogy, if successful. Maybe they'll figure out how to do the others faster.

I also saw the Heath comments. Jake's remarks were poignant. It was nice to read something more positive about the encounter. It also seemed as if Jake was engaging in conversation and not holding back. Something that, it was implied earlier, he hadn't done.

UltraViolet said...

FL - GMTA! I was just about to say that Lainey does nothing but reword items and throw something in (like the Skype thing) to make it seem s if it's original reporting.

If she were a real gossip columnist, she'd tell us whom Jake was dining with last night!

bobbyanna said...

I detest that creature. Won't even type her name. She said the most hurtful, nasty, despicable, vicious lies about Heath as a quasi blind item, from when he was in Toronto for Candy,she then confirmed it was Heath she was talking about, after he died. She was about as callous and vile as she could be.

I can't believe more then ten people read that mess regularly, and there is no original information in it.

You know, I'd bet Reese could have made an off hand remark to someone about being tired from traveling, and it was blown all out of proportion. Something a person might overhear at the beauty shop. I never pay attention to any of these gossip blogs, because we are better informed and can do better research then they can. We had Jake's pictures up and IHJ was on top of them, before they even appeared on any gossip blog!

I'm going to finish watching Zodiac.

agent_krycek said...

Hi Lainey,

If you're going to lift your stories directly from another blog, be nice to credit said blog who got the original information, but nice little alteration, Skype instead of texting.

shondra said...

Lainey is scum as are he rest of the gossip bloggers, theya all gleam info from other blogs and spins it as "insider" info, what a bunch of tools.

I came across this from my google alerts. Yes I know it's anon., but it sounds like the sighting was recent, not back in March when Jake and Reese were in NY. Didn't Jake request to have the weekend off to go to NY according to the fan that had the meeting with Jake on the Pop set. Wasn't that last weekend? I don't think Rese was spotted in L.A. over that period:

"I've seen them together (I know, I know, who ever knows the truth about these things...) and they looked pretty cozy. They were in a pretty low-key French clothing shop in Soho kissing, chatting and dancing a little bit to the song the shop was playing. They acted pretty oblivious to their surroundings. There were no paparazzi around, and between the customers and the shop clerks, we must all have been *hardened* New Yorkers who always tell our friends about a recent start sighting, but would never make a fuss or actually approach them.

Thanks for all the new Jake pictures , it's so good to see him again!

suvee said...

.....kissing, chatting and dancing a little bit to the song the shop was playing.

Sigh...... picturing them dancing in a Soho shop just makes me happy. :)

Many thanks, shondra! It does seem like this must have been a recent sighting....... it wouldn't be relevant to the J & R breakup rumors otherwise.

bobbyanna said...

I seem to remember reading something vaguely similar back when they visited NYC this past Spring? I'm not sure of the timing on this one. Sometimes my Google alerts are for stuff that happened ages ago! I just don't know.

Right now, I am seething. You know.
A long time ago, I remember reading some story about ESKIMOS? and how sometimes they leave people as bait for hungry polar bears to find? It was some kind of old native custom. Maybe even an ancient religious ritual. Anyway, I was wondering (hoping?) if they still do stuff like that up in Alaska.

office of nancy pelosi said...

bobbyanna,
I don't recall readng about them dancing and kissing in a SOHO shop when they were in NY in March! It was the 1st week in March and Reese was making an appearence at the UN on behalf of Avon.

There were pictures and sightings of them at a play at a few restaurants, shopping, at MOMA, etc. Also that was six months ago, this poster said it was recent, 6 months ago isn't recent. Also the paps were following them around then, this poster said there were no paps around.

I bet if true it was last weekend when he asked permission to go to NY, there are no pap pics of Reese around that time.

So a big squeeee from me because I believe the sighting!

LOL! bobbyanna, i' with you on that!

Prince of Persia Creator Talks Up Expectations for 2010

Anonymous said...

you want a Sunday laugh, read this load of fiction.
This writer should get a journalism award for their grand work of fiction :P
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This needs to be shoveled up like shit
_____________
No, sounds like real relationship issues are in the works for these two, but they are those of the normal variety when you are in a long term, and sometimes long distance relationship. With heavy production schedules and work taking Jake on location overseas, Reese has been getting a little antsy about being alone too much these days. Some have even been using the word ‘clingy’. Ouch! Jake is currently dashing between England and Morocco for his latest film ‘Prince of Persia: Sands of Time’ and this issue alone seems to be causing this poster couple of cuteness some heart troubles. Reese doesn’t like him being away, and recently headed off to London to visit him, but sources say it was more about keeping tabs on him than actually wanting to be with him. Yes, even Reese Witherspoon has her own insecurities, but why would she need to keep tabs on him? When they are apart for too long, Reese gets worried and dashes to the nearest airport to get as close to him as she can. And this neediness and clinginess is getting on Jake’s nerves. Needy and clingy are words I never thought I’d think of with Reese, but you know how it goes….even the prettiest most together girls worry I guess. But does she really have anything to worry about? I mean, who would have the nerve to cheat on Reese Witherspoon?

lawgoddess said...

Ack!

Creative writing posing as journalism.

paula said...

It would help anon. if you posted the link. The checking up part is in regards to the Star story, the part that didn't appear online: She is a bit antsy over Jake fooling around with some chick on set like Ryan did. The only chick would be Gemma in this case and by all goosip, has hooked up with a stuntman from the movie.

The blog where i assume this came from wrote this fan fic based on that. Yawn. Why wasn't she concerned when he was away filming Brothers and Nailed?

Let's face it, Jake and Reese are dull comaperd to other HW couples, you knew fan fic like this was going to pop up.

Now on to the pics of Jake: I hope this flood doesn't mean that we will get a drought again!

And i think that sighting of Jake and Reese is recent and I think that's not the 1st time they did that.

paula said...

Never mind, i found the fan fic:

http://www.bestcelebgossip.com/category/jake-gyllenhaal/

It seems that Lainey isn't the only one, but it seems that this blogger was standing on line at the supermarket and read the part about fearing Jake would be naughty like Ryan. And how can one be clingy if according to the original star "story" they don't get to see each other much? I mean flying over to london in September isn't clingy unless she is flying over there every weekend!

I Should start my own "gossip" blog.

UltraViolet said...

Always interesting when Anons gleefully post but don't provide the link, isn't it? Thanks for finding that, Paula. Was jut about to post it myself.

But back to shondra's find - what a great little tidbit. I wish the person had posted about it when it happened. But it's still fun to picture.

And belated hugs to sass - I know you posted in there somewhere! Glad Jake came out to play this weekend for all of us, especially you!

agent_krycek said...

Hmmm, so you can either have, couple who know they've got a long separation ahead make plans and every effort to be with each other as much as possible.....

Or, clingy, obsessive girlfriend rushes round the globe to keep tabs on her man

Hmmmm, now which version is more suitable for the pages of a gossip magazine....

suvee said...

Better late than never I hope. But I wanted to thank UV for posting the PoP girl's behind the scenes descriptions of the film's set and costume design, etc. It's always good to get an insider's view (despite her less than charming blog personality). More and more I am feeling reassured that this movie is a potentially great choice by Jake.

Anyway, I thought it was interesting stuff, so thanks!

I think the paps know where Jake is now, and they found the studio
Now the paps realize he is in Europe(back from the desert), so we may see Jake more.
Possibly paps will be around the studio waiting for Jake

If I'm not mistaken, Reese spent time on the set of Nailed and visited New Mexico for Brothers several times.

Anonymous said...

yes she did she also has visited him twice in morrocco and also been to see since he been back in london

josie said...

I hope not, as much as I was happy to see Jake the paps hanging around the studio will be ditracting and that's someting Jake and Disney and the rest of the cast don't want.

I hope they forbid them anywhere the studio unless Reese makes a visit and they get wind of it, and I think they got the pics they want.

Pics in London are another story, he mave have ventured out for a bite to eat in London but if he's smart, he is staying outside of London, not the Dorchester.

I really don't want to see daily pics of Jake at the studio where he's working, these pics are enough for me for now.

Anonymous said...

yea i think the studios wlll keep the paps away i dont think they want to give too much away and i dont think jake will venture out too much either so i contend with this pics for a while

Monica said...

Good night, babblers.

Never said this before...
I enjoy coming here. Even when not writing something, I like to visit this "home".
It's not the only place I visit on the Jake, but it's one of my favorites.
I wanted so much that you were part of my forum.

I love you all.

FluorescentLamp said...

Make of it what you will, Pinewood is NOT open to the general public. At all. No studio tours. No hanging around soundstages. So I doubt the paps will be hanging out by the front gates of Pinewood waiting to snap pics through darkened car windows.

well thats nice to know i didnt know that

If Paps aren't allowed at Pinewood, or the general public, or outside the gates.
who took the pictures of him on the set in half costume boots, and outside his trailer??

sheba baby said...

I feel th same way about this blog monica, it's the only Jake site I visit, thanks so much UV and FL!!!

I thought so FL regarding Pinewood studio. That's why I was surprised when the seies of pictures showed up but I assumed they were taken outside of the studio. Still I don't see Disney allowing that to happen again.

The other pictures of him leaving the restauraunt in London, he was leaving through the back door, the paps were tippped and he saw them. He looked bemused/tired and a bit drunk but I don' think he was too pleased.

That was near the Dorchester I assume and I'm wondering if he is staying there until he finds a flat?

sag actor said...

The pics are tagged Flynet and I have a hard time believing Disney let them anywhere the studio.

It's possible someone involved in poduction took the pics or maybe an extra did for Flynet, that has happeend before on closed sets. It didn't look like Jake was aware his picture was being taken there.

If true there will be a clamp down.
I also hope he isn't staying in London because he will be hounded.

Anonymous said...

yea i hope jakes not staying in london either i dont want him to be hounded by the paps but he is smart enough he knows how to avoid them too

Rebecca said...

Why do some of you guys find it so hard to believe that these two could be "on the verge" or have already split up. I'm not trying to give to much credit to these tabloid magazines but sometimes they do get these nuggets of truth. I remember when all those engagement rumors came out and both reese and jake denied it and most of you guys seemed to believe that they were engaged or at least wanted to believe that they were engaged. It comes off as if your pandering to one side. You gotta take the good with the bad. I enjoy these two together but they are both good catches and they'll find someone else. I adore reese much more than I do jake and I really don't care who she ends up with as long as he is the opposite of ryan. I feel like you guys are grasping onto anything to prove that you guys are right and yet none of this stuff is realiable. ie the new york sighting who knows when that was and if that really happened.

Ashley said...

I don't think that some people on here are "pandering". If people want to believe that these two are fine whats wrong with that. I certainly don't want to believe the break up rumors so is there something wrong with me for thinking that. Trust me I know the world won't come to an end if these two should split.

Tish said...

Well for a couple that have been together for roughly 2 years and are supposedly on the "verge of breaking up" they look very happy in the latest pics. One silly Star article has been taken to the extreme by some, and yes I know it may not last and it won't be the end of the world if it doesn't.

Bette said...

Sorry it will be the end of the world if they do. LOL End sarcasm. Anyway, no it won't, but come on, they are adorable. I'd like to see them make it to the altar, but I understand how distances can play with your head. Reese confessed that distances had a lot to do with the strain on her marriage, so did Ryan, and that it eventually was one of the many reasons they split up. It could be the same for Reese and Jake, but I'd like to think Reese has learned her lesson, and won't let Jake go so easily. She'll visit him as much as she can up until filming of her own latest project.

agent_krycek said...

Yes, if they come to an end I shall take to my bed in a fit of the vapours for the rest of my days!

I, like anyone else here, have no real idea, personally I hope they make it, and from photos, the amount of time Reese has spent visiting Jake on various sets, and vice versa, I see no evidence of a split, but who knows.

The mags have done the engaged story, they've done the booking the wedding story, we've even had 'Atticus as a ring bearer' story, to me, as Jake and Reese give nothing away, this is just the latest, 'what do we write about next' story.

And seriously...

Reese doesn’t like him being away, and recently headed off to London to visit him, but sources say it was more about keeping tabs on him than actually wanting to be with him.

So, she doesn't actually want to be with him, but is desperate to keep tabs on him. That doesn't actually make much sense, why keep tabs on someone you're not actually that bothered about? Especially as there have been no rumours of any kind about Jake hooking up with someone on set.

can we stop talking about gossip and tabloids, and speculating on their relationship

I respect this Jake blog for the truth and accurate manner information presented, a very level headed blog, I hope things can stay that way.

Anonymous said...

and thank you to those who make intelligent level headed comments on this blog, which makes this blog very enjoyable to read.

but why speculate about gossip.

josie said...

More rag silliness, filler by some bored intern that saw pics of Reese at LAX in September coming from London and spun a tale due to lack of information.

Take a look at the cover of this weeks Star that has the J&R story: Angelina going into therapy!!! Where do they get this stuff and based on what? Because She wasn't seen after given birth? And for some that think all rag stories are PR plants, no way in hell that was a plant. It was all BS as is the current J&R "story". and don't forget the Star and other rags stories of Brangelina breaking up every other week.

Let's face it they are cute but boring in HW standards so anything that would make them sound interesting.

The only thing I remember is that when he was doing Nailed,an extra posted that he was flirting with some girl who was either an extra or some co-ed. He said don't tell Reese!! The man is in love IMO but not dead, so yes he will flirt with a pretty girl, it's normal.

As far as the engagement speculation here, that's all it is, just having fun. I can see Jake maybe pushing for marriage but Reese just got divorced so I don't see her in any rush, I think they are serious, but I think she at least is fine the way things are which makes the story silly IMO.

So lighten up a bit here!!

PS: We know she has visited him more than the rags are aware of, that's one of the reasons I love this blog!

Anonymous said...

I don't see what is wrong with speculating about Jake and Reese, on this blog it is all good fun and there is respect for both of them. This is about the only blog you can talk about Jake and Reese without any childish nasty anti (mostly) Reese comments.

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!

In an interview with Epoca (Brazilian magazine), Jake said:

Season - How do you deal with so much interest in your personal life?
Jake: It's my job, you know. Often it is difficult not to bring work home, but you must learn to separate things. But sometimes I feel as if you were in primary school. It seems that I am in the courtyard, like a little kid. Hence the girls arrive and say (imitating the voice of a girl) "The Jude likes you," and after leaving school by running rampant "Jake likes of Jude" (laughter). When the comments get to that point, I remember that I'm an adult, not a boy in the schoolyard. And he has something else: I picked this work and I know that these things are part - but has others that are rewarding. So I'm not complaining, because it is waste of time.


I will translate the interview!

Anonymous said...

Thanks monica! Brazilian magazine, I wonder when he did that interview? Odd translation "Jude"?? Isn't that the German word for Jewish?

agent_krycek said...

Odd translation "Jude"?? Isn't that the German word for Jewish?

It's also a very common shortening of the name Julian/Judith

e.g. Hey Jude - written for Julian Lennon

I'm back!
This interview is the last year. It was during the Cannes Film Festival.

I see helpful anon has been around this morning giving us backhanded compliments again. Well that's nice.

It's also nice to know we have a regular group of commenters who are mature enough, wise enough, to see through helpful anon's post.

Cheers! everyone.

Totally OT: I am not taking sides or making speeches or being political...well, OK just a teensy bit political. Today, in Michigan where I live, this is the voter registration deadline. A lot of other states' deadlines will come up in October, so if you know anyone who might not be registered, or who's moved and needs to check out the rules again to make sure they are OK, please remind people to do it ASAP.

Also, to our "cousins" abroad, please. If you know any Americans living or visiting abroad, remind them to vote. If they will be abroad on election day, they need absentee ballots to vote. It won't matter how many people register, if they don't vote.

The faces of the extras have been blurred, but the costumes look amazing.

Thanks for posting the reminder bobbyanna, please everyone who isn't register, please do now!!!

I find it interesting to see that you have the right to choose whether or not voting.
That is democracy.

In my country voting is compulsory.

Sag actor, thanks for the link!

Some were not sure that the Jake and Reese sighting in SOHO NY was recent or not. Well since Jake was photographed wearing a 66 North jacket over the weekend a did a little digging and found this store:

http://www.kisanstore.com/index.php/id/133

It's in SOH and though it doesn't advertise as a French boutique,it does carry a numeber of french labels. Of course he could have purchased that jacket anywhere, but if the sighting was recent and he was in NY the weekend of 9/27 and she wasn't photographed around that time.....


I'm registered and I hope everyone here is as well, thanks for posting the reminder bobbyanna!

New Yorker said...

Kisan only sells kids and women's clothes though.

suvee said...

Great reminder about registering, bobbyanna!

Not only am I registered, I'm doing a mail-in ballot this time around. I'm normally not a paranoid person at all, but I have some reservations about our fancy new electronic voting machines..... you know, the kind that do not give you a paper verification. I'm not taking any chances this year. :)

Thanks for the links to the PoP costumes, sag actor! As someone else said, the more details we discover about the production, the cooler it looks.

Bill Zwecker hasn't mentioned Jake and Reese in a while:

I just hope the London Real estate agent if true didn'rt reveal too much!

Bette said...

Aww, that's nice to hear right now. It really is.

agent_krycek said...

Mayfair eh? Nice, and after the scrum outside their Notting Hill flat I'm not surprised they'd be looking at a gated cul de sac.

The NE ran the drifting apart story, it's amazing how each of them mentioned just a quick trip to London in September and staying at the Dorchester, completely ignoring the flat in NH, the trip to Paris, the Morrocco set visit....why let the facts get in the way of a (badly written) story

gabbana said...

Usually I am not a big fan of those gossip columnists, but this guy hit the nail on the head:

"The romance between Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal is taking the usual roller coaster ride in the celebrity press. First it was all hush-hush. Then the stars were photographed holding hands, then joined by Witherspoon's kids, and finally looking romantic in various spots around the globe. Now comes the supposed ''rift'' in the relationship being trumpeted all over the Internet and the supermarket checkout counters."

If this is true and they are searching for a house it looks like the shootings in London will be lasting longer than expected.

bobbyanna said...

That's wonderful news about the Mayfair flat! And I'm glad he confirmed what most of us already believe. I wonder if Jake hasn't moved in already and maybe that's why we saw him out in London all of a sudden. Reese's security concerns might be because of the kids coming over. Yay! Could her Ben Stiller movie shoot in London?

shondra said...

Didn't catch that about Kisan anon!

Anyway he is a fan of that gear, here is a picture of him wearing 66 North back in June in L.A.:


http://www.iheartjakemedia.com/displayimage.php?album=1219&pos=6

So we are getting the Jake and Reese looking for a flat in London again. If true then yes the filming sounds like it will take a bit longer and it sounds like her visits will be more frequent, otherwise why bother renting a flat???

josie said...

I love how the cycle of news is spun in 24 hours on the net. It goes from Jake and Reese are drifting apart to they are house hunting in London:

http://thecelebrityrumor.com/celebrity-gossip-videos/reese-witherspoon-and-jake-gyllenhaal-have-been-house-hunting

True the house hunting bit was in the original Star stoty, but the Bill Zwecker contribution just set off a bunch of new google alerts!!!

Cipriani's isn't far from Mayfair at all, quick hop in a cab, I do suspect he's already installed in Mayfair - not the easiest journey to Pinewood, it's only about 20 miles, but that's 20 odd miles through London traffic, which is a whole different ballgame

Olá, babblers!

Gyllenhaal family Drama

Oh no!!!

Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal’s parents are calling it quits, after decades and decades of marriage.

Bummer!

In Touch Weekly reports that the split between Naomi Foner and Stephen Gyllenhaal has the siblings crushed, as it seemed to come out of left field.
It is also strangely making the family closer. They are united under the bad news - not just in the current Gyllenhaal family, but the future Gyllenhaal family as well.

Talk of marriage between Jake and Reese Witherspoon has been surrounding the couple and now with Jake’s parents’ split, wedding bells may be ringing sooner rather than later.

Narcissa said...

There were rumours a year or so ago that they had split. I hate chewing over other people's misery, so I will just wish the family well, if these reports are true. For what it's worth.

Anonymous said...

yea i saw that article so sad ifs its true

bobbyanna said...

"There were rumours a year or so ago that they had split. I hate chewing over other people's misery, so I will just wish the family well,..."

ITAWTS!! Thanks narcissa, for the wise words. I really don't think this is "news." I think it's been out there for at least a year or more. Haven't seen his dad around for ages. I think SG really has been thoroughly disenchanted with H'wood for a while now, signaling major transitions in his life.

BTW. Read somewhere that Natalie Portman is going to produce and direct a movie about Amos Oz and... Naomi Foner Gyllenhaal is writing the screenplay. So while there might be a famine regarding Jake news, there is Gyllenhaal news out here. Altho some things I don't need to know.

Anonymous said...

I just found out this bit of info

"Ryan’s next movie is Franklyn a British science fiction film scheduled to be released January 30th 2009"

And Jake is also in Europe, if Ryan is filming in Europe also, Reese might be looking for a place for her and the kids over there.
I am taking a wild crazy guess Ryan will be filming in Europe to.

So in turn the whole clan maybe making camp in Europe

Just a wild hunch

chica said...

Franklyn has already wrapped and will be released in January 2009.

With all this recycled moving to London chatter, I noted that one blog said that Ryan was taking the kids for a check up.

Now this just speculation and they could both be due for a check up but i'm wondering if the check up is for travel reasons.Now I don't know why that would be and it would mean that the kids would be pulled out of school but still something to think about.

I thought I heard about the parents split last year, sad news to have it confirmed.

Anonymous said...

yea i heard the rumor about a year ago about his parents splitting upi so sad

bobbyanna said...

chica, interesting about the check up. It could be tho, that this is just that regular check up little kids get at the beginning of the school year.

I do think Jake is already ensconced in Mayfair and Reese has been popping up in London more then people realize. That's MY rumor and I'm stickin' to it.;)

I do remember Ryan commenting on how much he enjoyed London and wouldn't mind living there permanently. Maybe there is a slim chance Jake might agree to do the West End thing. If the Moon Project and the Joe Namath script arent'y ready, you never know. Altho, I hope Jake signs on to more movie projects. Tons more.

agent_krycek said...

Oh please let Jake do a West End thing - I'm 99.9% certain I missed out on seeing him last time, got the offer of a free ticket to a play, featuring some young American actors, that was getting great reviews, had a stinking cold and turned it down, now who was in the West End at that time, getting great reveiws...*sob*

Sad news about the Gyllenhaals, but I'm pretty sure I'd read it before as well

Bette said...

Somebody pointed out to me they were pretty sure that when they sold their house in LA is when they actually split, and it's just gone under the radar until now. We'll know when they sign divorce papers if it's true.

Anonymous said...

With all the google alerts about Jake and Reese drifting apart and looking for a flat in London, this pops up:

"I once fell in love with a girl in Midtown. It wasn't the kind of natural love I have for my mother or the dopey love for an ex-girlfriend. It was the kind of love I feel when I've drank seven vodka sodas and a beautiful blonde is writhing in my lap wearing nothing but a thong while Tricky's "Christiansands" plays on the loudspeaker. Then I get to talking with her. She tells me how she used to date Jake Gyllenhaal in lovable South African accent, and I wonder what time she gets off work. Thirty minutes later and she's in the lap of an elderly Asian man with a softheaded smile, and I suddenly snap out of it--oh right, I'm a customer. Such is but an average night at Rick's Cabaret & Steakhouse, a rising gentleman's club in Manhattan that is looking to topple Scores as New York's premiere place to see URL-free naked women".

I don't know if either he or the stripper was making it up or if it is true, LOL!!

That beautiful house is still on the market. The agent has reduced the selling price several times

Feb 15, 2008 $4,200,000
Apr 22, 2008 $3,795,000
Jul 16, 2008 $3,495,000

But these are tough times in the real estate market, even for a house of that high standard.

Bette said...

I love their house, if I could afford it, I would buy it. It's gorgeous. Sigh. Anyway, yeah I meant to say put it up for sale. When it went up is when they split.

Jake dating a stripper? Is it so wrong of me to think that's kinda hot? Lucky girl. ;)

sag actor said...

This blog is in French, but there is a video of David Belle, the guy that's teaching Jake Parkour for Pop:

bobbyanna said...

Crap!!!Thanks for the link, sag actor. No. Uh uhh. That was digital, right? CGI? Jake isn't gonna actually do that. He can't. OK. Maybe jumping over a car...a very low built car...But not jumping off the tops of skyscrapers or leaping from one 65,000 story building to another!
Does his mother know about this?
That stufff looks unreal.

josie said...

After Kiki and before Reese there were always stories about Jake dating waitresses from NY and other girls not in the industry,usually he met them through friends not in showbiz, but this is the first time I heard about a lapdancer!!

suvee said...

New pic of Reese at UsMagazine.com...... taken this week (exact day not mentioned) in B.Hills.

Aww really, bobbyanna? You're not the least bit curious about what Jake has accomplished in preparation for this film?

I was just saying to UV earlier today how much I'm looking forward to what he does on his own vs. what his stunt double does. Watching parkour is like ballet and gymnastics. It has a beauty and gracefulness in its precision. And even more than the final product, what I'm really looking forward to is the DVD extra on the 'Making Of'.

bobbyanna said...

FL, I agree it is beautiful and graceful and I'm sure Jake is going to execute some awesome moves, I just worry. I also have a serious phobia about heights and react physically to some of this stuff. That video had the guy standing on his head on the roof of a skyscraper..on the ledge.

Wouldn't people who do that be kind of young and "elastic" and have gymnastic training? It's fascinating, but it is very scarey.
I'll probably be watching the movie between my fingers...

chica said...

True or not, that stripper story is hot!

Thanks for the link to that video of Belle, sag actor, WOW!!! Does look dangerous but I agree that it's beautiful and graceful as well, I can't wait to see all this come together on the screen.

I remember that blog sighting earlier this year of Jake and Reese at that gymnastics class together!

Bette said...

Since I heard Jake was going to be doing this movie, I have been most fascinated by the Parkour and how much he'll be doing of it on his own. It's amazing what these men and women do, and if Jake gets even some of the discipline to do some of the stunts he'll win me over. Well actually he'd win me over if he stood there for 2 hours, but that's another story, Pretty incredible stuff right there though. Look up Parkour on youtube, lots of videos of people doing all kinds of stuff. Just your average person, not a stunt man.

sag actor said...

I found this on David Belle's IMDB page, fans thought he would be perfect to play Prince of Persia back in July 2007!:

bobbyanna said...

This movie sounds like a huge production, I wonder if they are doing a "Making of..." documentary. I know I am getting WAY ahead of myself, but the Special Edition DVD will probably be 60 hours long. With lots of Jake! ;) ;)

agent_krycek said...

I think a 'Making of' is guaranteed.

I'm heading up into Town this Saturday with the OH, wonder if I can persude him for a little stroll around Mayfair (when once more I can completely fail to spot Jake)

bobbyanna said...

Agent K I would BOLO (police talk)for a petite blonde woman as well!Are there any Farmer's Markets or cute breakfast places in the area??? How far is Mayfair from Notting Hill?

UltraViolet said...

Agent K, I have a mental block against the OH acronym for some reason. Every time you use it, I spend a few seconds thinking, "Offline husband? Only Heart?" Then "Other Half" finally comes back to me.

Not sure why I felt the need to share, but there you have it!

We'll definitely be getting a "Making Of." Hopefully a lot of different ones - chronicling every phase of Jake's transformation to The Prince. I can't wait!

sheba baby said...

Oh most definately a making of Prince of Persia along with the behind the scene stuff.

To evryone that observes Yom Kippur:

Easy Fast, or Tzom Kal!!

Wonder when this was?.

LONDON — Not one to gossip, but are Reese Witherspoon and man-child boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal having problems?

I sat near the couple at a coffee bar on London's Marylebone High Street, and let's just say that Jake was getting a right-ear bashing for “not supporting me on this.“

Quite what it was I never found out, but they left without speaking to each other. ...

Here

Anonymous said...

Whats happened to the post "Jake Gyllenhaal LAX" UV, it comes up in Google blog search but says "Not Found" when I click on it.

agent_krycek said...

Can't quite figure out what they'd be doing on Marylebone High Street, (although Selfridges and Oxford Street isn't far) and it's an extremely busy area, so seems a bit weird only one sighting, but when we ask, but when? Jake seems to be working constantly all week, and Reese has been sighted in BH earlier this week, so that seems to rule out last weekend or during the week - so I'm slightly leaning towards the sighting, if accurate, being from the first visit.

BTW, just in case anyone is wondering or even remotely interested, it's pronounced Marleybone, not Marylebone, we're just being British and not pronouncing things the way they're spelt.

extra said...

That sighting has to be from late September when she was spotted at LAX, unless she is there now which doesn't make sense since there is a picture of her in BH earlier this week.

Anonymous said...

I am wondering how accurate the BHills picture was this week, maybe that was on old picture of her.

Ryan had the kids this week, I thought since she didn't have the kids this week she would be in Europe

Anonymous said...

There was a spotting of them in Heat magazine earlier in the week, same area supposedly.

I never quite believe sightings like that and especially in the same week and area but who knows.

sort of like the Brooklyn sighting when he was filming in Morocco.

shondra said...

I have a feeling that she is in London, that pic posted on the US site I bet is from last week, just a feeling.

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

UltraViolet said...

Yeah, can we get a link ir a summary of the Heat sighting?

What an annoying person that Fox reporter is.

Also, the Jake LAX post was just a premature postulation of the new post that's up. But no, Jake is not in LA.
