Another mystery solved

Were you, like me, wondering why Jake was staring so intently at those carrots at the Ojai farmers' market? Did you think he was planning some big vat of chicken - oops - soup?


Take a little listen and think again...




Goats...on...the...roof!


I think someone should have bought them this great old game for Christmas.

___________________________________________________________

On a more serious note, we want to wish everyone a healthy and happy new year, god knows we all need a bit of happy in 2009. We'll have a new administration in a few weeks and (hopefully) TWO new Jake movies to look forward to!

In light of the tough year we're leaving behind (the economy, illnesses, deaths) we were humbled each and every day people took time out of their own lives to stop by the blog for a chat, a chuckle and to catch up.

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you're able to share it with someone you love! Or like a lot.

LoL, goats on the roof! Thanks for posting that video of Reese on Kimmel, I missed it.

So that's why Jake was checking out those carrots, I hope the goats don't bother Jake and Reese at the ranch on New years!

Happy New year all!!

This is what I hope for in the new year:

1. Hope that the new president and his administration will get this country on the right track.

2. Hope that the new round of violence will end in the Middle east.

Wishing everyone here a very happy and hopeful new year.

Enjoy your vacation UV and Happy New year to you and everyone here on GB, it's been a fun year and looking forward to more in '09.

Also Happy New year to Jake, Reese and their families.

Oh please. I can sense the envy in your tone that you're not home where we're getting hammered with blizzard-like conditions and snow coming at you sideways.

Good try, UV.

Happy New Year!

First Jake has been clean shaven for a long time and boy does he look good.

Happy New Year everyone.

suvee said...

Happy New Year to all Babblers! This past year definitely had it's ups and downs..... but having such a warm and friendly Jake "home" to visit was one of my personal "ups"! Thanks to everyone here.

And please remember to eat your blackeyed peas tomorrow...... as my mother would say, "there's no such thing as too much good luck!" : )

Anonymous said...

I like him with a bit of scruff, I bet he got all cleaned up for Mom or for a New Year's eve date with Reese!

FluorescentLamp said...

Clean-shaven yes, but what's going on here?

josie said...

Ha, ha!! He is clean shaven, but his hair is still a bit long, enough to make a pony-tail!!

I like him scruffy too. Love seeing all 3 shopping together and i love Reese's sneakers, but that coat looks a bit too big for her!

Monica said...

Thank you, anon!:)

It's so good to see Jake with Naomi.
Loved the shoes of Reese.

Happy New Year my friends!

im going to the farmers market on tuesday with my daughter be nice if jake and reese do another shopping trip

bobbyanna said...

Happy New Year !!! I'm sharing NYE with my brother and family. We are celebrating Italian style: Eating LOTS of seafood...and other stuff.

It is SO cold here that I have to eat to keep warm...:)

We watched Zodiac. I convinced them there was "nothing else on..."(My 16 year old niece recognized Jake immediately: "That's Donnie Darko!")

I love these new pictures! Jake shaved for Mom? If they were in Santa Monica, they are probably home from the farm, now.

CHICA said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

My BF and I decided to stay home and celebrate. We were watching the Twilight zone marathon all day until about 5 min. to 12 when we switched on our local cable channel, NY 1 to watch the ball drop, man it's 19 degress out there, what a bunch of hardy souls!!

Hillary, Bill and Mayor Bloomberg looked like ice pops, LOL!!

Yes, lots of black eye beans and rice and ham!!!

Even though Jake, Reese and Mama G were shopping for fruits and vegs today I have a feeling that Southern gal Reese has a whole pot of black eye peas at home!

Monica said...

but that coat looks a bit too big for her!

Here is a photo of Jake using coat
Ramey

josie said...

Good catch monica! Not only did it look too big but it did look looks like a mans jacket, thanks.

shondra said...

Hope everyone survived their New years celebrations!!

So she was wearing his coat! And while we are at it,her jeansand sneakers lookto big as well, not saying she is wearing his jeans or sneaks, but it looks like someone bought her jeans and sneakers that were too big.

If it was a Christmas gift then it may have come from Naomi and she felt she had to wear them. I would think Jake would know her size at this point and if he did get the size wrong he would have taken them back, just speculation!

Anonymous said...

I went to the Ramey site and they also had pictures of Robert Downey, Jr. with Jake's friend Adam Levine at a Lakers game on the 28th.

shondra said...

Adam Levine and Jon Favreau, one of the producers and co-stars of Four Christmases, it is a small world after all!!

Anonymous said...

Does anyone have the link to the Ramey site photos, I can't get in to see the photos

thanks!

extra said...

Monica already linked them, when you get to the site just type in Jake's name and the full set of the Jake, Reese and Naomi pics show up, you can see Jake wearing the coat and then Reese.

I don't think IHJ can post Ramey pics, but i may be wrong.

So Reese must have gotten cold and he gave her his coat....can I hear a collective 'awwwww'! :)

I knew that wasn't her coat, I hope she and Jake had a romantic New Years eve.

Happy New Year everyone!!

Thanks for the link to the Ramey pics, love the coat bit!!!

suvee said...

Loved the Ramey photos at the farmer's market. Thanks for the link, Monica! I'm not minding a clean shaven Jake for a change, and his body looks perfect IMO.

There's something so sexy about wearing your bf's shirt or jacket, isn't there? It makes you feel like you're surrounded by his scent and touch and....... um, I better stop this train of thought now. : )

extra said...

It's ok suve, I was thinking the same thing!!!

And is it wrong for me to hope that a blogger saw Jake and Reese out last night and blog about it like last year....

bobbyanna said...

I feel the same way, suvee. VERY sexy. (fans self.)

I was just thinking. With awards season coming up, Jake and Reese are probably busy screening movies as SAG members, and also as voting members of AMPAS (Oscars.)

New Year's Eve trip to the Farmer's Market = Cozy evening of home entertainment with family and a few friends? I guess both Maggie and Peter are in NYC, in rehearsals for more Chekov.

chica said...

I agree bobbyanna, I have a feeling they had a quite New Year's Eve, especially if Mom was around!

I remember last year, late December a sighting of them at a screening of Juno i think.

Linky is stinky!

bobbyanna said...

chica, I get the impression Mom is a lively, very engaged person. Remember before PoP, when James Sheridan screened Brothers for Jake? Reese and Naomi were with him.

I've seen some excerpts from interviews and panels she's been on, at various film festivals over the years, and she has a good sense of humor. But then, she's Jake's mother. How could she not! :)

I remember a pap video of Jake and Mom in NYC one night, he was walking backwards to avoid the paps and she was steering him, laughing. Individually, other issues aside,I think Jake's parents are probably pretty cool people.

sass said...

Happy New Year fellow babblers. Thanks for keeping me in the loop with all the happy Jake/Reese pics. Good on Jake, for giving his mom a smile at this time in her life and bringing home a girl, I'm sure she approves of. Of course Jake has always been sweet to and close to his mom. I remember quite a few pics of Jake and his mom hanging with Kiki in years past.

I could be wrong; and someone here told me I could be right. I read someplace that Jake's mom's family were well off, but as that person pointed out to me, family money isn't necessarily Naomi's money. eek:) However, I do wish her well in her divorce endeavor.

Jake looks really happy and OMG he has the most beautiful bedroom eyes.

I did have a momentary blood pressure run-up after I read some of those mean spirited-bitter comments about Jake and Reese on Just-Jared. Thank goodness I hardly ever go there or anyplace else that is Jake/Reese negative, since I've been warring with my Breast Cancer.

One would think after all this time such bitter feelings would have damped down a bit. BUT NO, NOT Yet!

Anyway, I'm glad to see the family out and about, living and loving life.

Happy New Year everyone again,
Happy vacation UV,
hugs and more hugs to ya,
luv forever,
sass
UV and FL,
I can't thank you two enough for creating this happy home for all us Jake & Reese lovers.
see ya

paula said...

Happy New year Sass!!
So glad you stopped by, been thinking about you.

Yes, it was great seeing them out and about and so happy, love that he gave him his coat to kep warm, she loks adorable!!

I'll take Jake clean shaven or scruffy, he looks good either way.

sheba baby said...

Hi Sass, lots of hugs and good thoughts.

The Jake, Reese and Mom pics made my week, things a bit dicey over the holidays, glad that they are over.

Hoping the new year brings joy, health and happiness to you sass and everyone here at GB!

hair care said...

Just a few tidbits:

Jake didn't cut his hair, he just removed the extentions. He grew his hair a bit so the extensions can be braided into his hair. He is wearing the beanie/hats because he doesn't like the way it looks and he can't be bothered to comb it. He has to do reshoots, but the reshoots will be done in L.A. that's why he hasn't got his hair cut.

Reese is wearing extentions because she wants to do different things with her hair for the holidays, you wouldn't know that by looking at the pics of her the last few weeks but that's the reason. Also sh got impatient with waiting for it to grow back, so she may keep them in.

After spending Christms week with the kids, she and Jake have been spending the rest of the holiday with fsmily, they are tired but happy, the ranch turned out to be a godsend.

A cousin (I think) of Jake's bought Reese those sneakers and jeans after hearing she was buying and wearing sporty things more than before, she didn't get the size right! I laughed when I saw the pictures the other day, she looked like a little girl playing dress up, Jake jacket just added to it, she must have decided to wear them because the cousin must be still around.

josie said...

How do you know all this/

bobbyanna said...

All of this make sense to me. I believe you, "haircare." I'll be delighted if the reshoots are in LA. But not as happy as Reese and Jake are!

Now. If you'll just tell us when the wedding is, I won't care who you are. :) :)

OK. At least tell us what they gave each other for Christmas.

OK. At least tell us what the kids got Jake. I know Deacon is absolutely crazy about Jake. It's a gut feeling I have. Ava likes Jake, too, but she's more "mature" then the two guys are. :)
I'd guess Deacon and Jake are both very "spontaneous."

I just popped in to say that Jimmy Kimmel is repeating the "Goats on the Roof" segment tonight on TV if anyone wants to catch it...or not.

josie said...

Thanks for the heads up bobbyanna on the Kimmell show, I would love to see the whole interview.

The goats on the roof thing made me go back and check out the layout of the ranch and they showed what looked like a stable, low roof, if the ranch has a lot of hills around it, i can see goats climbing on the roof!

Hair care, a lot ot of people hit and run with postings about Jake and Jake and Reese here so we are a bit skeptical, but as bobbyanna said, it sounds about right.

Would love to hear more!

bobbyanna said...

One more thing. I like Reese with the shorter look.

sammy said...

Sounds like people are filling the quiet times with fan fiction. Cousins gifts, how the kids are with Jake, and wedding plans are certainly nothing that anyone here has any insider knowledge about.

hair care said...

The info I got was second hand, from someone working production on Pop. They had a business lunch with Jake and that's when he spoke about their holiday and the gifts to Reese from his cousin, it's not fan fic from me.

I never mentioned marriage plans nor what gifts were exchanged between him Reese and the kids, that I assume didn't come up during the lunch. The hair bit did along with the ranch/holiday/gift from the cousin did and the reshoots, that's it.

Others are free to speculate,no harm in that. I lurk here occasionally and only posted this bit because i thought it would be of interest because there were questions regsrding Jake being done with Pop, since there have been pap pics of Jake and Reese out and about along with the mom the info I posted wasn't really private, i just added what was told to me.

bobbyanna said...

sammy, I NEVER claim insider knowledge. Ever. I hope most regular posters here understand my speculation, (which is one of the stated purposes of this blog) and my sense of humor. If they have misunderstood, I apologize. I try to keep things light-hearted and fun.

But that doesn't mean no one posting here has insider knowledge, because they could. We have no idea what people know, or who people are here. We just try to stay positive, have fun, and speculate, just so you know.

As for Jake's relationship with Reese's kids: I said it was a "gut feeling." I based it on flowers for Ava at her school recital, getting home in time for Deacon's birthday, and skipping down the street with him, placing Ava up on his shoulders to see the fire works on Bastille Day, a report of Deacon telling someone, "Jake says we must recycle" which had me laughing out loud, Reese saying in live interviews that Ava wants to be a scientist and loves horses, etc.,etc.

As for wedding plans? Nope. I have no idea. Just askin'. But I wouldn't put it in the category of fan fiction, either. There is nothing fictitious about their relationship, and it seems serious enough to speculate about a wedding.:) :) :)

suvee said...

Many thanks, hair care, for being kind enough to share your inside J & R info with us here at GB. I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates it!

Gotta love Reese's consideration of the cousin by wearing those jeans..... sweet!

bobbyanna said...

hair care, I really appreciated your post simply for what it was. Thanks.

hair care said...

You are welcome! Like I said, it's all second hand info from my friends hubby,he has worked on several movies and TV shows in production and occasionally passes stuff on to me. He worked on Sex in the city, 7 Pounds and now Prince of Persia.

Like I said before I have been lurking here for a few months and i remember some here being confused about the filming schedule, my friend knows i'm a fan of Jake and passed it on. The other stuff that was told to me wasn't really personal IMO as i noted that Reese has been publically wearing extentions and Jake the wool hat and the conversation got around to the holidays and they shared a few stories.

And I agree, I think Reese looks better with shorter hair.

Hope I didn't upset anything here with my first comments!!

Happy belated New year, hoping for peace and happiness and in the New year.

Hair Care is a little too full and needs a trim. Why would Jake talk about what something like that at a supposed "business" lunch?

Narcissa said...

Obviously people with some insider knowledge do post here, and at other Jake friendly sites, now and then. Last year some-one posted that Jake's grandmother had died, but it was weeks before it was officially confirmed.

So thanks for the tidbits, hair care.

shondra said...

I remember that post about Jake's Grandmother passing away and another post about Reese flying to the UK in Sept. for some kind of party for a castmate of Jake's.

A little while later we find out Jake's Grandmother did pass away and there were pics of Reese coming back from the UK at the time the poster said, so yes I do believe some people with inside info do post here.

As far as hair care post is concerned, the hair extention story and the Pop re-shoots make sense and as far as Jake talking about those things at a business lunch, if the lunch took place after Christmas then I can see someone asking how was your Christmas and stories exchanged. There may have been several people at that lunch and they may have shared a few stories, especially if he was friendly with some in the group.

Thanks hair care, if you hear anymore about the Pop re-shoots, let us know!

suvee said...

A couple of years ago I got a free year's subscription to UsWeekly for a purchase I made at Best Buy (I think). Anyway, I really intended to cancel after that first free year, but of course, never did. Now I'm kinda glad I still get the mag, since they seem to give J & R pretty good coverage.

Here are a few tidbits about Jake's bd dinner according to UsWeekly:

- The lovebirds dined on a tasting menu of specials that were not on the menu, courtesy of the chef.
- During the three-hour meal, foodie Gyllenhaal often asked the waiter questions about their dishes.
- He picked up the tab - though Witherspoon left a 75% tip!

Anonymous said...

Jake seems like a very social, talkative man. Reese is a huge part of his life, so why wouldn't he refer to her in a conversation. They are a couple. He wasn't talking on live TV. He was talking to colleagues and he doesn't seem like a reserved, guarded person. It sounds to me like he was being himself. He is happy and he shares that. So what?

agent_krycek said...

Nice pictures, although jeez when exactly was the last time Jake was seen with Austin *roll eyes*

Have to say, the annoucement of the new Dr Who (fab choice IMHO, and if he's good enough for the wonderful Stephen Moffatt he's good enough for me) has caused an even bigger meltdown with the fanboys then Jake being cast as Dastan =D
