I love the smell of Dastan in the morning.

Entertainment Tonight finally aired their piece on Prince of Persia (not before their website released a somewhat different clip earlier in the day).

Here's the earlier clip - for comparison and for accent-uation :)

It's always better to see Jake in action - we've been too long without that.

And how great to finally see this shot of the PoP set in Morocco in all its glory. I feel like we practically lived on that set this past summer.

I wonder if this scene was filmed the same day as the Reese set visit.

You can see where the leather straps left their mark on his biceps as well as the armor leaving marks on his chest in this pic.

Jake giving Gemma the stink eye.

And being charming and funny.

The Jesus look. It's growing on me.

And while we're on the topic of on-set Jake, I can't tell you how giddy I was when I noticed IHJ had posted a bookend to this Moonlight Mile set pic.

I have driven over that street more times than I can remember. Nice to see a different angle from this new/old onset pic.

Mmm about sums it up! I love it.

UltraViolet said...

Mmm mmm good!

Still adoring the accent. Love seeing Jake live and in action. He's very calm, cool and collected. And dorky. Just the way we love him.

Oh, and I love the bookend MM pics, FL. If we only knew then that we should have been hanging around!

Finally, rumors of Brothers in Berlin.

No idea what the blogger is going on - maybe just wishful thinking - but the gist is that perhaps Jake, Natalie and Tobey will premiere Brothers at the Berlin Film Festival.

UltraViolet said...

Forgot to echo your sentiment about finally seeing the Morocco scenes. We've looked at so many of the still photos from the set. It was great to see the real thing, in action.

Anonymous said...

Mmm Mmm looking gorgeous, I am looking forward to this now. I have just realised just how much I have missed hearing his voice.

chica said...

What a lovely sight to wake up to! Missed live action Jake as well, that voice the flirting, sigh.

Great to se some of the Morocco scenes as well.

It's so good to see and hear Jake again he's looking really HOT, Thank you FL, UV and Stephanie of course.

Jake and Reese love "Home" by Blake Shelton,

From People

"Miranda Lambert, gushing about meeting one of her biggest fans: Reese Witherspoon! "She stopped me in the hall and she told me she liked my music," Lambert told us. "I was like, 'You know who I am?' She actually said that she and her boyfriend – who just happens to be Jake Gyllenhaal – love 'Home,' my boyfriend Blake Shelton's song."

I "read into" the lyrics of Jake Reese's favorite song

there is a deeper meaning here, I am sure

Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home
Maybe surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another airplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky I know
But I wanna go home
I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
This was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
And I wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I'm coming back home
Let me go home
It will all be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home

bobbyanna said...

Aww! That's very sweet. Isn't that a song Michael Buble' recorded a few CDs ago?

FL thanks for the clips! And Stephanie, of course!!! Great Moroccan scens. I was really happy about that. Was that Jake furiously galloping with Gemma "attached" to the side of the horse in Morocco?

shondra said...

What sweet/ beautiful lyrics and fitting for Jake and Reese as well.

Thanks for posting the video and thanks of course to IHJ as well! I missed ET last night. He does resemble Jesus! He looks wonderful and sexy and he was all goofy/sexy like I like him!

I realized that the last time we have actually heard him was when he did that PSA back in March for glasses for the needy, missed you Jake!!

Nicole said...

Thanks for posting this video.I really had a "Fangirl-Moment" this morning. He looks wonderful.And the voice...sigh
I'm looking forward to see PoP. I can't believe that we have to wait 18 loooooong month to see it.

get real said...

Squee's! That video was so great. Jake really is just adorable, funny, cute and sexy as hell! ;p

It was so great to just hear him, it's been so long. Made me excited for the movie to see the cool behind the scenes stuff. He looks much better in action with the hair and outfits. Still pics don't always do that stuff justice and the video did.

Very happy to and adorable...Jake again. :D :D

Thanks for the MM pics and the Brother's possible Berlin FF info. I hope they do go there.

Very sweet about the song "Home", never heard it. Will have to find it and give a listen.

Have a great Friday everyone!

extra said...

I had a big fangirl moment as well!
Definately swoon worthy and i missed his sexy voice. I'm really looking forward to Pop , can't believe we have to wait until 2010!

Love the MM photos and I hope the Berlin FF news about Brothers is true.

Love the lyrics to that song that Jake and Reese like, really sweet, thanks.

Blake Shelton - Home

FluorescentLamp said...

Awww man. I'm such a sucker for lyrics. I can see why this song might be a special song for them. But I think I like Buble's version better.

So, thanks Reese for mentioning that to Miranda. Nice to get a glimpse of songs they like.

Totally OT: This blog claims that Jake's little dog was "kidnapped" by coyotes while wandering around BH recently. I assume it's a joke, can't tell, little would mean Boo not Atticus and that would explain what happened to him but his dissapearence wasn't recent unless Jake mentioned recently although I find it hard to believe he would let him wander around BH. Also there was a story a few months back about Paris Hilton's dog being carried away by coyotes, turned out to be a hoax:,,12643~1454324,00.html

FluorescentLamp said...

Haha, funny. ^^^

presumably strapped to an ACME rocket escaping through a tunnel painted on to the side of a cliff!

bobbyanna said...

The mystery of Boo Radley Gyllenhaal's disappearance will forever haunt all who knew and loved him. It may be something too painful for Jake to ever speak of...I don't think it was coyotes. Boo never wandered. He was mostly in Jake's arms.

In other news, there's a raging wildfire going on in Mendocito which isn't all that far from Ojai. I think maybe about 20-30 miles to the north and west? They claim it's destroyed about 100 homes. Ojai is just south of a National Park/Forest, so I imagine it can be a concern at times.

FluorescentLamp said...

My belief is that that Boo was just too high maintenance, as yappy little dogs tend to be, and he probably didn't mesh well with laid back Atticus. So Jake probably had him sent to a new home where he'd be the only dog-child.

The Montecito fire is nowhere near Ojai. Plus it's moving in a southeast trajectory - Ojai being due east on the other side of the mountain range. So sad to see all that $$$$$ real estate go up in flame.

bobbyanna said...

So you're saying there's a mountain range between Ojai and the fire? (phew!) I'm very relieved. I didn't notice the mountains on my Google map...heh.

I was thinking of doing an animated graphic mystery novel entitled" The Disappearance of Boo!" and your theory, while probably more factual, doesn't fit my storyline...:) :)

sheba baby said...

I swooned when i watched that clip! He is looking and sounding soooo good! That interviewer war flirting with him big time and who can blame her!

And yes bobbyanna, that was Jake galloping in Morocco with Gemma attached to him! Love the lyrics to J&R's favorite song, thanks for posting anon. and thanks for posting the link to the Berlin FF, fingers crossed.

Love the MM bookend pics, one of my favorite movies.

FluorescentLamp said...

So you're saying there's a mountain range between Ojai and the fire?

Why, yes, I'm a map dork, why do you ask?

I know cinematical posted that they had been on the set of PoP but not sure if they posted this at the time. If you have already read this please delete.

"Cinematical was lucky enough to visit the set of Prince of Persia earlier this month, and while we can't really go into details, we have no problem placing a bet now that Persia will go down as the most successful (in terms of quality and box office numbers) video game adaptation of all time. This sucker is a monster, and you have my word that it looks damn good. Much more coming soon --"


Anonymous said...

thanks for the link i cant wait to see this movie so far all the reports we have heared have been very positive

agent_krycek said...

It should be great, they've got a stella cast - Sir Ben, Alfred Molina, Richard Coyle and Gemma is a fab actress, apparently doesn't do much in Bond, but she was stunning in Tess of the D'Urbavilles recently (and obviously Jake!.

Jake sounds relaxed and happy - won't comment on the song as I've loathed it ever since bloody Westlife covered it

FluorescentLamp said...

**runs to YouTube to watch/listen to Westlife's version**

FluorescentLamp said...

Oh hey, look at them. They've grown up. Now this is the group that at one time had Bryan McPudgie, correct?

UltraViolet said...

I hope it's better than Shelton's! I can see why the lyrics would appeal to Jake and Reese, but the song delivery is godawful. It sounds like a song a third grader would write. And is singing.

Okay, one with a deep voice but still.

I love hearing all the movie sites tease the good news about PoP. I wonder how long they have to wait to talk about it.

Oh, and Agent K - I was glad Jake's accent got a thumbs up from you. I thought it sounded good, but I'm not a Brit.

FluorescentLamp said...

Buble's is a nice version, I guess he wrote the song.

I like it. But then, I like cheese.

off said...

I can get used to this look, he looks a lot better here than he did in August, he was bit too Conan the Barbarian for me then!

Didn't realize how much i missed hearing him, love the hot/flirty/goofy Jake!

Never heard this song but I will check out the link, sweet lyrics and it does seem to fit them, I like cheese too FL, LOL!

office of nancy pelosi said...

Sorry that was me, got a bit too excited over Jake!!

Monica said...

Hello, babblers!
I can not stop seeing this interview. Jake is funny, sexy, hot, beautiful, great ... everything!!
I love the scenes of struggle with Gemma, their uniforms, weapons ... I'm anxious to watch the first trailer of POP.

Anon, thanks for the information of Cinematical on POPs. Very good news.

UV, I think difficult, but not impossible, the launch of Brothers in Berlin. The problem is that the Festival will be held in January and we do not yet have an official photo of the film.

Thanks for the link and the lyrics of the song Home. :) :)

UltraViolet said...

CelebCast TV, which seems to be a WireImage offshoot, has a video about Hollywood families. If you go to the 3:13 mark, you'll see Naomi on the red carpet and a young Jake in the background. It's adorable. You also get to hear Naomi speak. I don't think I've ever heard her voice before.

They also have a video stringing together snippets from red carpet appearances by Jake over the years. That's been up at WireImage for a while, but now it's on youtube.

It's raining Jake :)

UltraViolet said...

Oh, and Monica, I know the Brothers in Berlin is a longshot. I think it's in February next year, but still - if they are planning a big Cannes splash, I don't think they can do Berlin.

I also agree with your assessment of Jake in PoP :)

Anonymous said...

It's raining Jake :)

Hallelujah! ;)

bobbyanna said...

UV what a great find! Those are really great clips! I'll be watching them both over and over again! Jake seems so comforatble with himself and so relaxed talking to the media. Very unpretentious and very unaffected. (Gwyneth, OTOH... had me in fits!O.M.G. :):):))

It was great seeing Jake's mother joking and talking. She's a very attractive woman and she's one of my idols. She writes beautifully. Both his parents seemed very cool.

Monica said...

thank you, UV!

Jake and Peter are funny together!
Impossible not to fall in love with Jake!

Narcissa said...

Absolutely lovely to see and hear Jake again. He seems to be having a great time. :)

Rather sad seeing his parents so relaxed and cheerful together back in the day though. :(

josie said...

Finally recoverd to comment on Jake's ET segment:WOW!!! He looks sexy and I love how the interviewer can't help flirting with him!

Great video finds UV, I never heard Naomi speak before either, bittersweet looking at the Gyllenhaal family now.

Love the People blurb about Jake and Reese's favorite song, sigh.

sag actor said...

Loved the ET clip, Jake really looks like he is into it and having a blast.

I found Bruckheimer creepy though and odd that he was interviewed, why not interview the director?

sag actor said...

I forgot to add that a new Pop game is coming out for Christmas so this just a little buzz for that.

Anonymous said...


I'll take one of those

lawgoddess said...

I really love the Moonlight Mile pictures. But he looks so young!

sheba said...

It's been a smorgasboard of Jake this week. Thanks UV for the clip of Stephen and Naomi. Never seen this before. Jake sounds just like his dad and has that playfulness too. I've a soft spot for Stephen and greatly admire Naomi for her courage.

Losing Isiah is a wonderful movie that made me completely bawl and has stayed with me. I only hope I can get to see it again someday. The little boy in Stephen's arms was Isiah, wonder what he's up to now? Stephen also worked with Halle Berry, Samuel L Jackson and his wife in the same movie.

A lovely family who I know nothing personally about but can only judge them by the work they've put out there for us and what they're willing to share. I wish them all love and happiness especially for the holidays.

paula said...

Thanks for finding the clips of the Gyllenhaal family UV. Jake does sound just like his Dad. sheba. I've always admired them and especially Naomi.

Love the ET/Pop segment, Jake was sexy and playful and I love his look! He should be winding down filming soon, we need an update from bs!

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
A good Sunday to all!

Happy Birthday Maggie Gyllenhaal

Josie said...

Happy Birthday Maggie!!!

UltraViolet said...

Hi to all the regular and the semi-regulars! Good to see you all.

I'm listening to the Buble version of Home. It's much better than the Shelton version, though it's still not my cup of tea. (And I like cheesy songs, to. Just not this one. I guess I don't like country cheese.)

Glad folks enjoyed that little bit of young Jake and Naomi. It is bittersweet to see those pictures now. I wonder how Jake is dealing with the situation, idiotic tabloid reporting aside.

I never saw Losing Isaiah. I wonder if it would be watchable now. Sometimes even good movies don't stand the passage of time.

chica said...

I haven't seem Losing Isaiah since it first came out, Halle Barry was amazing in it. Thanks for posting the clips UV, they were fun and bittersweet looking at them.

suvee said...

Thanks for the video clip of Stephen and Naomi, UV! I've never heard either of them speak before, so it was interesting.... and yes, quite bittersweet.

I remember really liking Losing Isaiah when I saw it years ago.... very emotionally powerful.

Anonymous said...

I can't picture Reese doing this, especially the way she was dressed that night, but I can't help but smile at this sigthing after the CMA awards:

"i met josh turner and almost peed my pants. he is so handsome.
i saw nicole kidman and reese witherspoon. nicole looked like a porcelain doll whose face really doesn't move... my friend amy said reese looked like "a fucking child" but i love her so i don't really care. she was so small though.
reese had her shoes off and was playing bongos on the floor while keith urban played guitar, tony brown played piano, and lee annzy womack sang.
famous people live in their own little weird world.

We have certain images of stars based on pics and PR, but sometimes we may get a real glimpse. I can imagine Jake doing he same, i truly believe they are a good match.

sheba said...

So true. At the end of the day they are people with real feelings, problems and emotions just like most of us - they just have more money and opportunity.

...And, in a way.. don't we build our own world where we enjoy things that other people wouldn't understand? I certainly couldn't explain to friends and family why I love talking about this man and his family and visiting blogs where I can freely talk about him guilt-free.

I saw Losing Isiah only last year for the first time and it was so powerful to me... maybe beacuse I'm a mother - I dunno (I expect.. just how The Pursuit of Happyness first hit me but it's better than that). For Naomi to write the screenplay with such depth and Stephen to direct it and bring out such raw emotions from all the actors concerned is awesome.

I'm so greedy, I want more new Jake... anything at all as long as it's not compromising or intrusive. I like that glow around him.. or is it just me?

suvee said...

I like that glow around him.. or is it just me?

No, sheba, it isn't just you. :)
He is an intriguing, compelling, charismatic, beautiful man.... a rare combination IMO.

I am so grateful to have this place to come to. I don't share my Jake "addiction" with family or friends. So I'm thrilled I can indulge it here...... guilt-free, as you said.

And yes..... I want more new Jake anything

Anonymous said...

I forgot the link to the Reese/CMA mention:

I agree, Losing Isaiah was an emotinally wretching film, Naomi and Stephen did and incredible job making that movie.

Reese isn't getting married

Reese doesn't think about marriage,,20240817,00.html

extra said...

Which makes the Star "story" even more ridiculous. If she isn't getting married or risn't thinking about it then how can someone tell someone to stop making wedding plans?? LOL!! They aren't even engaged, geez. IMO it's too soon for Reese, her divorce just became final in Oct. 07, what's the rush? But that's just me, they seem to be just doing fine, I don't see his Maggie and Peter rushing to get married.

She handled the personal question well just acknowledging she is in a relationship and there are no wedding plans, end of story and focus on the real reason for the interview: Four Christmases. She probably allowed the question to squash the marriage rumors.

The Christmas gifts from coo were cute/funny and so is she! I'm sure she will get the same when she does PR for the movie. She will be on Regis and Kelly and Letterman on 11/25 and Kimmell on 11/26.

sanjula_rijuta_sai said...

The red carpet premiere of Four Christmases will be held on Thursday, November 20, 2008 at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. crew arrivals: 5:00PM, celebrity arrivals: 6:00PM and the screening: 7:00PM

Anonymous said...

Jake will be in the UK filming Pop on 11/20, he will be there until 12/3 so don't look for Disney to let him off for a day to attend that premiere.

sanjula_rijuta_sai said...

I didn't think Jake will be at the premiere

I doubt Jake and Reese would ever walk the red carpet together anyway

Anonymous said...

I think Jake and Reese will take the Ben/Jennifer, Scartett/Ryan Reynolds route and don't do the Red carpet bit, they seem to avoid doing it at all costs and Ben and Jennifer have been married for a fews years. Ryan and Scarlett are new to the scene but they seem to be doing the same thing. Ryan made an appearence on some talk show last week and he must have told them no questions about his marriage because it never came up!

agent_krycek said...

I'm not getting married

Well, she might not be getting married.... and that ring appears to be a firm current favourite ;-)

sanjula_rijuta_sai said...

which ring do you mean?
the gold band?

I swore Jake used to wear that same gold band she now wears, Jake wore it years ag0.

The band looks like it has something written on it.
they wear the same ring

she wears this necklace he wears also

josie said...

Didn't notice the ring at first, I was distracted by Cujo who looks like Chastity Bono!

Still thinking about that poster on IHJ.....

shondra said...

I would think that ring would be too big for her.

She knew that question would pop while doing PR for her movie, I think she did a good job of confirming the relationship but denying she was planning to get married (they are not engaged) with the ET interview anyway. The People blurb is fuzzy when asked does she think she will get married again and she says she doesn't know, she doesn't think about it much, it contridicts what she said in the ET interview, ahh young love, LOL!

Sort of like the Vogue interview.

She is adorable in that interview BTW.

bobbyanna said...

I took Cojo's question as something immediate, as in "What day, time, place?" and her denial as a "Not right now" rather then a "never." There was something secretive in her smile when she said ""I've been married..."

Maybe this Christmas at the ranch for a wedding won't happen, based on this interview, but then, there's always Spring when they aren't both working. She will finish her Ben Stiller movie and hopefully, he will be on a break.

Reese is a very savvy person when it comes to PR and she does nothing to jeopardize promoting her movies. Not with Rendition, Penelope and now this. I think they are definitely planning something for next year.

OTOH, no one would blame her for saying, "no wedding." What's she supposed to say on national TV? "Yes. We are getting married in three weeks at my ranch. Y'all come!"

OTOH, maybe they are already married. Wouldn't that be something. "I've been married" might mean more then appears. Or not.

As you can see, it doesn't take much for me to confuse myself. Plz understand. At one time, I wanted to go to Law School. :) :)

Thanks for the links. Very cute.

sheba baby said...

And if you remember, during PR for Penelope, it never came up. Love the clip, she is so dorky/cute with the red nose, reminded me last week when Jake stuck his tongue out during his ET segment!!

UltraViolet said...

She sure does seem happy :) One would have to be giddy about life to kiss creepy Steven C. I'm not talking about his illness. The guy just bugs.

office of nancy pelosi said...

She does seem super happy, noticed when she was at the CMA's she's just glowing.

Marriage plans or not, Jacob is making her plenty happy these days, love the sexy Santa bit Cujo pulled out of his gift bag!

agent_krycek said...

She sure does seem happy :) One would have to be giddy about life to kiss creepy Steven C. I'm not talking about his illness.

Who was that guy, for one second I actually thought it was Leigh Francis doing a Bo Selecta character (apologies, you may have to be from the UK to get that reference)

suvee said...

Yeah, Reese definitely has an unmistakable glow about her..... something's making her mighty happy. And I have a feeling that something's name is Jake. :)

Anonymous said...

I would think that ring would be too big for her.

Jake is wearing the ring on his little finger, Reese is wearing her's on her middle finger, they sure look pretty similiar.

smile said...

Hi guys, long time no post. Am back because I wanted to say how much I appreciate that Reese is back. I mean the old Reese. Being lovely, being kind, being huggable and being someone who is open enough. Lately I had a bit trouble with Reese being somehow ambiguous. I know, you like that, at least in Jake, but I always really loved that Reese seemed straight forward. Because I believe she is. She seems relaxed, in no hurry and honestly about not thinking to marry at all. She seems to have made peace with her past and really moving forward now. I do not believe these two will marry anytime soon, but they both look like they are much more relaxed lately than the last months. Whatever reason they might have, I hope they will continue to give that relaxed, happy and satisfied vibe.

UltraViolet said...

Hi smile! What a coincidence - I was just looking through some old posts and it made me wonder where you'd gone. Nice to see you again :)

I don't mind that they felt the need not to answer questions directly, but I sure do enjoy hearing Reese say it out loud. Though the smile does speak for itself!

sanjula_rijuta_sai said...

Out of "fan girl"curiosity

I wonder if they will have kids, Jake always said he wanted to be a dad.
If they don't get married, will they have kids?

sheba baby said...

I agree with you smile, as a longtime fan of both Jake and Reese, this is the old Reese I remember. She seems like you say, relaxed and happy. IMO She and Jake have a serious and stable relationship. They both seem happy and relaxed, I think they are at the point where they don't feel the need to rush into marriage so quickly, as a poster mentions above regarding Maggie and Peter.

Remarrying so soon after a divorce is not a good idea IMO. Specualting is fun and they may down the line but I can see why she would be hesitant even if it is Jake !

I read the account of her at the CMA's above and watched the clip of her with Cujo and of course compared it to Jake's interview with ET and they are both happy and relaxed, I hope they remain that way because I love them as individuals and as a couple, I admire how they and Ryan have managed to remain civil and include the children into to their new lives, it can't be easy.

UltraViolet said...

New post.
