Jake, Jake, Jake

In a recent interview , Reese Witherspoon revealed more than she intended when explaining why she made Four Christmases:

"The main reason I did this movie was to work with Jake."

Problem No.1: Four Holidays co-stars Vince Vaughn.

Problem No.2: Jake Gyllenhaal is the boyfriend Witherspoon has so carefully steered clear of mentioning for the past half hour. She cringes visibly.

"Oh my God, I am so embarrassed," she says, emerging from beneath the tablecloth.

"The main reason I wanted to make this movie was to work with Vince because he's so funny and so great."

Then she is quick to regain some composure.

"Jake is funny, too," she adds.

"Am I not talking about Jake? Jake, Jake, Jake."


Don't be embarrassed, Reese. It's totally understandable that you've got Jake on the brain.



Reese is not alone. When asked what she would have made her first priority if she'd been elected Vice President, Sarah Palin seemed wistful:

"I was really looking forward to negotiating with the Prince of Persia. Also, too, the precondition was total nakedness."

When pressed for details, the governor's spokesman murmured something about a "buildup of arms" and "hidden weapons." And by "nakedness," the governor apparently meant "transparency." Reporters were also assured that Governor Palin knows the country is now called Iran and is not a monarchy. And that sand monsters are not real.






Two budding superstars were in the same boat as Witherspoon and Palin. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, stars of the new blockbuster film Twilight, revealed the reason they took roles in the emo tale of bloodlust:

"I just couldn't pass up the chance to work with Jake."

At the reporter's confused look, they acknowledged that Gyllenhaal isn't actually in the movie. "The producers tricked us. It happens more than you know. How do you think they got Pacino to do 88 Minutes? He was Jake-faked."


That is pretty much the only thing that could get me to see Twilight.


Finally, new old Jake, Jake, Jake:






Thanks to Monica for the heads-up on this video clip of Ben Kingsley talking about working with Jake - for real:



Sir Ben Kingsley has revealed what it is that makes Jake Gyllenhaal "so good" as the Prince of Persia in upcoming film, The Sands of Time.

Sir Ben said that Gyllenhall, who plays lead character Prince Dastan, brings a natural confidence that is perfect for the role.

The Donnie Darko star's character will face his nemesis Nizam, a nefarious and scheming monarch, played by Sir Ben.

Good morning, babblers!
UV, this interview is so funny!
: D: D: D
I agree with the bobbyana, should have a video that moment!:)

Sir Ben Kinsgley about Jake:
POP

That's wonderful!:)

sheba said...

That's very insightful. Using Jake as the carrot to entice actors onto projects.... hmmm. Guess that confirms how well-sought-after he really is.

Loved Reese's slip and allowing us to see her happiness being in that situation. She seems smart, grounded and level headed. Let's hope that they learn from what's happened around them and from each other.

It's been nearly 3 years now so the honeymoon period should be over and yet the magnificent obsession for Jake has not waned, not one little bit. Jake, Jake, Jake indeed :DD

sheba said...

"a lovely effortless confidence"

that just about sums up our Jake.

BTW That split screen picture, is that Jake and the real Prince of Persia (Iran)? they look like spooky twins (you know, when someone wants an actor to play their life story they choose a more handsome, younger similar looking person).

Jake's an enigma, wrapped up in sexiness and sprinkled with hundreds & thousands of ideas - hmmm.. all this food talk is making me hungry.

sorry to double post.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, Monica - I embedded the video in the post in case people can't get the ITN video to play.

I've been dying to hear Ben talk about Jake;so glad it's so genuine and complimentary.

Indeed, Sheba, that is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran. Jake made a cameo in an SNL spoof video (done by Andy Samberg and Fred Armisen from SNL and Adam Levine of Maroon 5). It's hilarious - you have to check it out. They show that split screen, but Jake also pops up in person :)

extra said...

Jake and the real Prince of Persia, I remember that SNL skit, it was too funny! Thanks for posting UV and thanks for the link to Ben's comments about Jake monica, "effortless confidence", what wonderful comments!

Reese has Jake, jake, jake on the brain! Love the little glimpse of their lives, but i think bobbyanna might be right in the previous post that she may be a bit guarded now.

UltraViolet said...

Yeah, it definitely would have been more fun to see Reese slip up on Letterman or Regis. Maybe the jetlag will get her on Graham Norton!

get real said...

Great stuff! LOVE hearing Sir Ben say such wonderful things about working with Jake! Very exciting. :D

So cute that Reese has Jake on the brain! LOL, Jake, Jake, Jake. :p

UltraViolet said...

I was just at Barnes and Noble so I had to look at the People issue. Jake gets a tiny picture with a quote. From Emmy Rossum! WTF. Talk about out of date.

And the quote is something about how Jake can talk politics or make fart jokes. I think they could have come upwith something better than that!

Off to buy more crap...

sheba said...

Thanks UV, unfortunately, I can't see the video as it's unavailable outside the USA. But I've seen a glimpse of it on E! and wondered why bearded Jake poped up again on SNL. Now I know.

BTW The fart jokes and politics do go hand in hand anyway, don't they? :DD

The 100 greatest movie characters/Empire Magazine

38. Donnie Darko

"I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to." Donnie Darko

Played By: Jake Gyllenhaal
Film: Donnie Darko


Why He's On The List: And you thought you had the weight of the world on your shoulders when you were in high school. An upgrade on the rebellious teen, throughout Richard Kelly's scorching debut Donnie remains just enough of a mystery to stay intriguing, without ever being alienating. Is he mad? Or is something trying to tell him something beyond our comprehension? Most still don't have the answer when the credits roll, but this troubled kid's journey is one we're happy to watch again and again.

Finest Hour: Burning down the house of 'motivator' Jim Cunningham, which serendipitously exposes him as a pederast.


:)

chica said...

I would love to see Reese slip up on Kelly and Regis or Norton, Jake, Jake , Jake, LOL!!!

Loved Ben's comments on Jake, what a class act, botBen and Jake.

suvee said...

Is it safe to assume that Reese must be in NYC now? I half expected to see J & R pics this weekend.... thought he might make a quick trip over. But I realize that wasn't a realistic expectation on my part since she will be in the UK this coming week.

OT: I never took Blogs 101, so I'm somewhat ignorant of blog protocol..... I don't understand who deletes the "This post has been removed by the author" comments. Is it the owner of the blog, or is it the person that posted the comment? Dumb question, I know, but I'm confused! (I always assumed it was the blog admin, but the word "author" confuses me.)

Monica said...

This post has been removed by the author.

I deleted my post, because the link was not working!

When he comes the post was removed by the administrator, means that the owner removed the post!

suvee said...

Monica, thank you for answering my question. My blog education continues! :)

lawgoddess said...

Jake , Jake , Jake.

Great post, loved the video.

And LOL at fake-Jaked.

I miss the guy, I want him back in LA buying coffee with Reese and going out to breakfast.

At least he'll be home for Christmas. ;)

josie said...

Yes, Jake will be finished with Pop soon and back home!

Love her slip-up, definately Jake on the brain and who can blame her. I love Ben Kingsley and love what he had to say about Jake, can't wait until 2010.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Ha, using Jake's name as bait, sounds good to me!

She will be making the rounds on the talk shows this week, should be interesting!

Google/Blogger said...

Just saw Reese on Regis and Kelly

1. talked about the farm, her chicken coop
2. She is spending Thanksgiving in London
3. The kids don't like her signing
4. Kids church holiday play

general stuff, very general

She had on a purple like dress, and a big ruby like ring on her hand, and a gold band on the other

gabbana said...

Thanks for the info!

I like how she has planned the PR/interviews for "4 Christmases" - means some private time together in London for them. I don´t think Jake will get free time until they are finished with shootings - especially with the strike possibilities.

By the way - "4 Christmases" is getting very bad reviews - lets hope it will be at least a box office success.

I like what Ben Kingsley had to say about Jake - I always liked him since "Gandhi" and felt bad that he decided to be in some really shitty films....

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the report Google Blogger. Looks like Reese was on GMA, as well. Did anyone catch that?

I love it that Reese and Jake will have a London Thanksgiving.

Google/Blogger said...

I missed GMA, maybe it will be posted on YouTube later by someone

UltraViolet said...

Sheba, the I Ran video is on this French site, where I assume you can get it. It's here, and they also have Jake's Dreamgirls SNL number.

I Ran is also on the official SNL site, but that could be blocked, as well.

GMA Reese clip

bobbyanna said...

Great clip of GMA, googleblogger! Thanks. It seems like Reese is throwing off a kind of sexy, vibe lately. She looked lovely and girly with Diane Sawyer.

I'll be running around a lot today. I'm headed to NYC tomorrow, to spend Thanksgiving with Youngest Daughter! Oldest Daughter just e-mailed from Morocco, where she's just spent two nights "camping out"
in the desert. She said the whole country looks like a movie set, from what she's seen.

She's been there a week, said that the only stars she saw were in a very spectacular night sky! :) I keep reminding her to shake out her shoes and stay away from toads.
I want an authentic tagine from Morocco.

I hate that I missed Regis and Kelly. Hope someone will post it to YouTube.

agent_krycek said...

I was just thinking what other shows she night do over here apart from Graham Norton - it's a long shot, but there's a chance she just might appear on Top Gear as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car - that segment is recorded on Wednesday, same day a Norton is taped - Mark Whalburg was on it last week, and the image of teeny tiny Reese next to huge Jeremey Clarkson appeals to me lots

Google/Blogger said...

So there is a chance Reese might be bringing something special home from London

hum! Hummmmm.....

shondra said...

Thanks for the link to the GMA interview google/blogger, I hope her appearence fro Regis and Kelly pops up on you tube. I'm sure Jake and Reese have a lot to be thankful for this year!

sheba said...

Thanks UV, I can see it now and understand it better in context (I'd only previously seen about 3 seconds with Jake in it and some inane babling from those girls on The Daily 10 - Sal's ok though!).

Ben Kingsley is a class actor. I was amazed by his range from Ghandi to deranged gangster in Sexy Beast to evil vizor in PoP. And sword fighting too at his age - it's like he's rediscovering his youth. They do say 'once a man, twice a child' Bob Marley

"it's a long shot, but there's a chance she just might appear on Top Gear as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car "

Ooh... now that'd be exciting. I love Top Gear and it would be hilarious to see Reese doing the Top Gear's top lap time. She's just gotta beat Simon Cowell's time as she's had plenty of practice dodging the papz.

There's so much to be thankful for - I do envy your thanksgiving holiday in the US as it's so appropriate for any religion or culture (don't know the background to it but I expect it takes on different connotations each year I guess). We have harvest in October but it's never celebrated. In a cynical world like this is there really is still so much to be thankful for. One of them being great places like this and a few other blogs to indulge our 'cravings'.

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!

I do envy your thanksgiving holiday in the US as it's so appropriate for any religion or culture.

I would also like to have Thanksgiving in Brazil.

bobbyanna said...

Just wanted to pop in before I head out. I'll have limited access to a computer, so if I don't get a chance, Happy Thanksgiving to EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!! no matter where you live.
Among the list of things I am thankful for, is UV and FL putting together this great site so we can have fun with one another and with Jake and Reese, etc. Toodles!

agent_krycek said...

Sadly no Reese on Top Gear accordingy to the Beeb site :-(

Just Norton from what I've seen, but I'll try and keep an eye out, outside of daytime TV there's not that many chat shows on at the moment (and seriously, Reese interviewed by Alan Titchmash - wrong on so many levels), but Jonathan Ross would have been guaranteed.

chica said...

Have a Happy Thanksgiving in NY bobbyanna!

I will be on Long Island with the family on Thanksgiving. Thanks for the link to Reese's appearence on GMA, I caught a bit of her on Regis and Kelly. She mentioned that she will be in London on Thanksgiving, can't remember if she mentioned the kids.

sag actor said...

According to Nikki Finke's insiders/gurus, Four Christmases is predicted to make 30-35 Mil. over the Thanksgiving weekend despite the reviews:

UltraViolet said...

Aww, thanks, Bobbyanna. Hope you and everyone else has a great Thanksgiving/Thursday :)

Has anyone else noticed that some of those entertainment blogs that mindlessly repeat things have picked up the "I wanted to work with Jake" story, but don't seem to understand that it was a mistake? LOL. It makes no sense without the explanation!

UltraViolet said...

An interview with Beau Willimaon, the writer of "Farragut North." Jake's rumored participation is mentioned but not explained.

This part is interesting:

I’d heard the film rights to Farragut North had been bought by George Clooney's production company. Are you still attached to that project, and what should audiences expect so see changed in the process of transferring the stage property to film?

The film rights were actually optioned by Warner Brothers, not Smokehouse Productions (Clooney's company). Warner Brothers brought on Smokehouse and Appian Way (Leonardo DiCaprio's company) as producers. When WB optioned the rights, they hired me to write the screenplay. I have since completed it. As for differences between the play and the film, audiences can expect to see more characters, more locations, and a broader story, but the core main characters will remain the same, as will the core trajectory of Stephen's journey.

Monica said...

UV, thank you for all links and information!
It was not this time, but I hope that Jake back to work in the theater.

Parents of Jake and Maggie in financial crisis?

I hope not!

Bette said...

I read the divorce documents, and then felt like an ass reading them. They are really sad. Stephen has lost his mind. Emailing his wife, instead of actually talking to her, and refusing to pay his half of the bills. And apparently he updated his blog about how he wants to marry this woman who does his publishing. Poor Jake. What a mess.

Monica said...

Bette, I do not read the document.
This is really sad. Poor Jake.

shondra said...

The only comments I have regarding Jake and his parents are that it's said that their persoanl business is being aired in public. Also my opinion of his father is negative ever since that incident two years ago at book reading in NY involving some of Jake's fans, nuff said.

Don't for get to catch Reese on Letterman tonight.

Four Christmases is getttin bad reviews but I was surpised that A.O Scott from the NY Times, EW and Salon.com liked it.

chica said...

I was up so I caught Reese on Letterman. The first part was Dave catching up with Reese since she wasn't on the show since WTL 3 years ago. Talked about winning the AA,
dinner last night withafriend, a tarot readerstopping by their table, the farm and that she will be in London on Thanksgiving for 4C pr(but we know it's for more, heh)

Spent more time talking about that stuff than the movie! Showed a clip, audience, Dave laugh and that was it. Had a feeling Dave was pushing even though her people said no personal questions IMO.

One thing I did notice: she had the gold band or maybe it was the signet on her left middle finger, but in the pics of her outside the studio she had on the ruby ring on her right hand and no gold band, then just the gold band. I think she took the ruby ring off for the interview in case Dave asked about it.

BTW, she was rocking the G. Kelly look again, loved the black cocktail dress.

Monica said...

google/blogger, thanks for all links!

IS REESE NYC BOUND?


Is Reese Witherspoon planning to change her home address?

After dropping by the famed Milk and Cookies Bakery in New York City yesterday, the Four Christmases actress spent the afternoon hunting for houses in the West Village.

Previous reports from Britain stated that Reese was searching for a love den in London with beau Jake Gyllenhaal where the actor was filming the Prince of Persia flick.

Meanwhile, Reese is addressing those rumours of tension between her and co-star Vince Vaughn on the set of her new holiday comedy.

Says Miss Witherspoon: “Every co-star I ever work with I’m either having an affair with him, I’m about to get married with him, or having a baby or we absolutely cannot stand each other. We got along great, we were very good friends and we were very much partners on this movie. Vince is the funniest person I’ve ever worked with. It was a challenge for me to stay there and keep up with him. But I feel really a better actor for that experience."

bobbyanna said...

Hi, all! New York was rainy,chilly and crowded yesterday but the sun looks brilliant this morning.
Saw Reese last night. Sounds as if the kids are with dad for TG. I think DL wanted to tease her, but decided not to. I'm appalled to learn about the mess with the parents and I have to agree that I'm not a fan of Stephen ever since the book reading "incidents" in NYC. It has to be sad and embarrassing for the kids, but I'm sure they have been dealing with the reality of all this far longer then we know. It's the public nature of it that has to be wearing, right now. Really glad they have work and good relationships to keep them grounded. I had to go to Columbus Circle to meet my daughter and thought about popping in to the Mandarin Oriental to say hi! to Reese but decided against it!:) She's probably on her way to London. I thought she looked VERY glam last night. Definitely channeling the Grace Kelly thing.

agent_krycek said...

NYC actually makes a lot of sense for Jake, he always seems at home there, Maggie and Stephen are already based from there, and maybe they'd be hassled a bit less by the paps.

I'd imagine she's already here, Graham Norton tapes on Wednesday to go out tomorrow - I'll give as full an update as possible, don't usually watch, but as it's sandwiched between two favourites of mine it won't be too much of a hardship

Hi guys, can I just say f.u. Vince Vaughn for completely acting like a j.a. and letting do Reese all the work? Unprofessional is a kind word for what he is.
Thanks for covering Reese tomorrow Agent K!
About the Gyllenhaals, sad business. Even sadder that some sleazy site has to obtain the documents and present them. So low.
There are always two involved in a relationship and the dynamic is between these two. As we do not know anything about their life it´s probably best to not speculate who wronged whom. At least I think that. In the end it´s hard for both of them to have their marriage and all they achieved together vanish. As hard as it may be to realize that there was love and trust once, this may help to finalise things and somehow keep ones soul clean, so to say. I would wish them both that they will be able to make that happen.
A wonderful Thanksgiving to all of you!

FluorescentLamp said...

Hey Smile, Happy Thanksgiving to you and to all GBers who celebrate it. Re Vince Vaughn, I thought I read somewhere, I think IMDb, that he's off filming his next movie in exotic lands far away. So seems he has a legitimate excuse for not promoting the film Stateside.

Re the family divorce situation, I don't know if it's a stomach bug I'm coming down with, but this whole thing, i.e., seeing this story pop up in so many different places - makes me truly nauseous. I'm just sickened by the comments I've seen. I'm sickened that this personal information made the internets at all. And I'm sorry for all involved.

sass said...

Hi UV, FL and fellow babblers,

I was up wanting to post this morning...arrrgh...when NY.com reviewed 4 Christmases. Neil Rosen loved Reese and Vince...the movie not so much (he gave it 2 out of 4 apples) but I'm still going to see it this weekend. I need the laughs and I love slapstick...think The 3 Stooges and you got me:)

Jake has mentioned his parents in several interviews, their arguments and their marital tensions. I'm sad for Jake; he's had so much tragedy and pain this year.
I've been off the mister ever since the situation everyone mentioned. How badly he was reported to have treated some of JAKE's fans when they went to give him a gift for Jake's niece.....arrgh. Thank goodness He didn't harm Jake's career too much.

love you all.

I'm off to take the bus to Wendy's, with my chemical mouth to buy a a sour cream and chives baked potato...x 2:lol...I can taste it but not much else.

One more hi to my babblers mates.I Might as well link you up google/blogger. You've brought us such beautiful pics of Reese, her fab clothes, shoes and jewelry. Thanks for all the great pics. Her style has really evolved since early 2006.

Anyone other babblers glad we don't have to encase our lower limbs in ill fitting panty hose any longer? Michelle Obama says she is 5'11" and never had a good fit. I was 5'7" 4 inches shorter than she is and I never had a great fit either.

Reese's necklace
I'm really too nauseous to read Gyllenhaal sadness, and that's a good thing...I'm usually so nosy. I hope everything will work out.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy your stay in NY bobbyanna, I will be off to Long Island at Mom's tomorrow.

Thanks for all the links and info., I feel bad that the Gyllenhaal's personal business is being aired out in public. My opinion of the father has fallen since that incident 2 years ago.

Poor Jake has so much on his mind now, hopefully a visit from Reese while she is over in the UK doing PR will put him in a good mood!

Hope all is well with you Sass, going to probably catch 4C this weekend as well, I need a laugh. The critics were rough on it but was surprised at who liked it like The NY times and EW.

Thanks Felicia!
Not letting Vince off the hook. In times like these with him being one of the leads, he could have phoned or skyped or whatevered his pr in.
Unprofessional and I hope the studio will have a long memory.
Sass, all the best to you, let us know how you thought 4Xs was. I saw the scene where Reese gets the load from the baby and Vince, let´s say reacted. Not exactly big drama but I laughed. Yes, sorry, it´s very cliché, I know, but I laughed.

It's so good to be able to come online here and say to you that I was over on Broome Street earlier this evening. And you'd all understand what that means.

Hey bobbyanna!

Born and raised in NY, live in Queens and work in Manhattan,Mom and most of my family live on Long Island. Enjoy Thanksgiving in NY with your daughter, I don't have to be back to work until Monday!

Yes we have so much to be thankful for and Obama and his beautiful family in the White House is one of the many things to be thankful for.

Thanks for the heads up on the Graham Norton show, I get BBC-America and they air him here in NY at 3:00AM. Joan Collins is listed for today and tomorrow they have Andrew Lloyd Webber but I wonder if these are new shows or they just didn't list all the guests.

Don't forget that Reese is on Jimmy Kimmel tonight!

This year was a very hard one for Jake - I am glad he is in London working far away from the HW madness. Lets hope he and Reese are able to have some quiet days.

Reese is looking very stylish and sexy lately - thanks for all the links Google/Blogger!

I saw Four Christmases yesterday. All these people took their young kids to it, and in the opening scene there is something that I wouldn't exactly let my 9 year old see. And I just sat there dying. I'm mean, but they had to have known, this is more of a take your date type movie to. Not take your young kids. Vince and Reese had real chemistry, though the script floating around wasn't the script that made it to the screen. I was disappointed, there was a sub plot that would have been very funny, but they changed the sister character entirely so it wouldn't have fit. I don't think any of this was spoilery I hope!

Reese sounded like she was upset because some people were trying to trample some girl in front, and I'd be mad too. Sorry for bringing up the Gyllenhaal-Foner private business, I just think it's really sad all around honestly. I didn't mean to start a debate, I was just curious what others thought of it.

Anyway, hi Sass! I know I don't address you much, but it's good to hear you are doing okay right now. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody! Unfortunately I have to work tonight. Bummer.

Happy Thangsgiving everyone here at GB!! And Happy Thanksgiving to Jake and Reese who in the UK as I type this!

Thanks for the mini review Bette, I don't know why parents would take kids to a PG-1 film, it's not a kids film and yeah I heard about that scene. I'll probably catch it this weekend.

Feel really bad about the Gyllenhaal family personal business being aired out in public, sigh.

Again have a Happy Thanksgiving and don't eat too much!

Oh, Bette, please don't feel you need to apologize. I think we can all safely say divorce can be messy business but having all that mess out on the internets for all to see? Sad situation and I hate Harvey Levin for thinking that leaking that is some form of entertainment.

Okay, off to mash the squash.

Eat well, everyone. And don't forget to stretch.
