More cute details of Reese's slip of the tongue when she said she wanted to make Four Christmases to work with Jake...

link to article

excerpted:

"Reese Witherspoon’s very telling slip of the tongue about her boyfriend, Jake Gyllenhaal, was the highlight of one of our most amusing, memorable interviews of 2008.

This is the first of three parts in which we recall some of the funny, sad, touching and fascinating moments culled from our exchanges with stars this year.

Reese Witherspoon

Let’s start with that humorous incident with Reese. The world’s top-paid actress, who fiercely refuses to talk about Jake, was discussing her movie with Vince Vaughn, “Four Christmases.” She said about the holiday film: “It’s somewhat of a romance. The main reason I did this movie was to work with Jake. I mean… Jake…”

Reese suddenly realized her slip... and paused. The room at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills reverberated with laughter. Blushing, Reese laughed, too, and covered her face with both hands. Then she bent down, lifted the tablecloth and used it to cover her face.

In the next few minutes, everyone, including Reese, continued laughing. She took a big sip of tea from a cup. Then finally, she managed to say, “Oh, my God. I’m so embarrassed.” Smiling, she kept saying, “Oh, my God…”

Then she repeated the sentence that started it all, this time saying the correct actor’s name: “The main reason I wanted to make this movie was to work with Vince!” She added, “Because he’s so funny and great. Jake is funny, too.” The mood in the room changed from somber and routine to light and funny. Earlier, the 32-year-old actress was talking rather perfunctorily about the movie she had to promote and yap about. Now, we were all in a laughing spirit.

“A little Freudian slip, huh?” Reese was teased. She gamely admitted, “Yeah, I know, isn’t it?”

So when Reese was asked why she wouldn’t talk about Jake, the man in her life since her divorce from actor Ryan Phillippe, she playfully answered, “Why am I not talking about Jake? I’m talking about Jake. Jake, Jake, Jake … Jake, Jake, Jake, Jake, Jake, Jake…”

Amid gales of chuckles, she continued, “Jake, Jake, Jake, Jake…”

Are they going to get married? “Oh my gosh,” she said and laughed again. “Is this my fault? Did I open this can of worms?” Well, are they going to tie the knot, she was asked again. “We’re very happy,” she declared. “All is well. Yeah. No plans other than just to be happy.”

Emboldened, the reporters asked Reese more questions about Jake. Like, what is great about Jake? “I don’t know, you tell me,” she playfully parried the question. “You’ve all met him. You know what’s great about him.”

Hearing such comments as “He’s bright” and “He’s cute,” Reese said cheerfully, “I agree. I agree.”

What a charming story!

Happy Christmas to all babblers.

Cute and sweet - I probably would have done the same! lol Happy Holidays!

My family and i were discussing our favorite Christmas songs and my boyfreind and I said that Santa Baby by Eartha was our favorite.

RIP Eartha:


Eartha Kitt, a Seductive Talent, Dies at 81

Ms. Kitt's lyric-licking voice, heard in her biggest hit,
"Santa Baby," helped power a show-business career across more
than six decades.

acccording to several movie sites one is the big picture dont remember the ohter one they say jake is one of the hosts along with glenn close and ricky gervais at the golden globes i wonder if this is true

FluorescentLamp said...

I believe it's incorrect. In America a presenter is not a host, merely a presenter of an award. Somewhere along the way, perhaps when picked up by European sites the announcement of him being a presenter translated into him being a host.

shondra said...

Yeah, he was added as a presenter the same time Glenn and Rick signed on, the official press release stil says host.

Happy Kwanzaa!

UltraViolet said...

Hello out there. It's been a hectic week. Hope everyone is enjoying whatever it is you're celebrating!

sag awards said...

There is no solo host for the GG awards, they just announce the presenters and they come out and present the awards. Lot different then other award shows like the AA and the Grammy awards.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

goldderby said...

Although it would be great if Jake was one of the co-hosts,There has never been a host for these awards. Another case of missinformation being picked up and spun:


66TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS
Airing Sunday, January 11, 8pm (ET) on NBC


CECIL B. DeMILLE AWARD
presented to Steven Spielberg by TBA


CEREMONY PRESENTERS:
Simon Baker
Sacha Baron Cohen
Drew Barrymore
Glenn Close
Cameron Diaz
Aaron Eckhart
Ricky Gervais
Jake Gyllenhaal
Salma Hayek

More To Be Announced

I hope everyone survived Christmas with their families, it got a bit tense with my crowd, glad it's over!

Thanks for the link to that Reese interview scout, the extra bits were so funny and cute!

Off to the movies today to see Benjamin B. with Brad Pitt.

UltraViolet said...

I forgot to say that yesterday - the extra stuff from the Reese interview was adorable!

Quiet around here - I guess everyone is recovering/gearing up for NY Eve!

sass said...

Happy Holidays babblers all:)

I miss you all so so much. It's wonderful to see Jake back and hanging with his lady love.
OMG, all the beautiful Jake/Jake/ Reese pics make me dizzy with happiness. They look so happy with each other. I'll return later today to drool and drool some more:)

OT:
To top off the health situation: my hip joint was injured, when my son and I went to see
Frost/Nixon,12/14/08.
After a lovely lady...also on chemo...we talked after the incident...sat down, her broken seat back hit my knee--YIKES--which then jammed my thigh into hip joint. My hip joint didn't get pissed off until 12/18 when it rebelled, stopped moving and sent me to the ER.
Don't ask :lol.:lol, I swear, nothing will get in the way of my drooling over the delicious Gyllenhaal or visiting here for long.

love and hugs to all my babbler
mates,
sass

agent_krycek said...

sass - sounds painful, but good to hear from you, with your sense of humour firmly in tact =D

smile said...

Gosh Sass, so sorry, so sorry! Hope you are getting better by the minute! It´s good to read you!
All the best wishes for a speedy recovery and my thoughts are with you.
We really worried what happened to you.
Hope you had some fine hours and we´ll get some pics of Jake soon to comfort you.
(((sass)))

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!

Hello, Sass. Sorry for what happened.
I am happy to see you here !:):)

chica said...

Hi Sass!!
So happy to hear from you, so sorry to hear what happened, hope you have a speedy recovery.

I'm still runing around seeing friends and family i missed seeing on Christmas, today i'm off to see my goddaughter.

UltraViolet said...

Sass! So sorry that happened to you. And so glad you checked in. Take care!!

And Monica, I see you, too :) Hope you're feeling better, as well.

I'm off to a wedding. See you all later.

Monica said...

Hi, UV. I'm better.
The worst phase of chickenpox has passed !:):)

I wonder if Nailed will see the light of day:


Columbia was taken over by camera crews and actors’ trailers in April when the film “Nailed” began shooting. The movie’s stars, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel, were seen around town with their sweethearts ( Reese Witherspoon and Justin Timberlake respectively). Biel and Timberlake dined at Garibaldi’s, while Gyllenhaal and Witherspoon got their caffeine fix at Starbucks in the Vista.

Director David O. Russell chose Columbia because the capitol building closely resembles the one in Washington, D.C. Biel plays a waitress who has a nail lodged in her brain, causing unpredictable behavior. She travels to Washington to lobby Congress, where she meets a junior senator played by Gyllenhaal.

After several filming interruptions because offinancing problems, “Nailed” left town in July. It’s unclear whether the film is in post production and when it will be released.

"Off to the movies today to see Benjamin B. with Brad Pitt."

It's a good movie. Though I thought Zodiac was better. Shame they overlooked Zodiac so unfairly.

I hope everyone has a fun new years eve.

Narcissa said...

Dunno about Nailed (and don't much care, to be honest), but there is some interesting news on the Brothers front. According to WDW, U2 will be contributing music to Brothers, as they have to previous Sheridan films:

Best wishes to everyone!

office of nancy pelosi said...

Glad you checked in Sass, we missed you around here! What a horrible thing to happen to you, get better soon.

Frost/Nixon is the next film I want to see, I saw Benjamin B. and I really enjoyed it although it was a bit long IMO.

You're right Silvania, I liked Zodiac better, too bad that itwas ignored last year.

Thanks for the Brothers news Narcissa, I love U2!!

New pics of Jake and Reese with RDJ and his wie in Ojai on Gossip Girls

Anonymous said...

Oh I forgot to say Atticus is there as well.

Monica said...

Thank you, Anon!
I'm happy to know that Jake and Robert have become great friends.
Today was reading an article on Robert and Jake and now I see pictures of the two together !!:):):)
I will try and then post here.

So good to see that Atticus is well!

bobbyanna said...

SASS!!!Great to here from you. Knees and hips are No. Joke.

I haven't seen Bejamin Button, yet, but I did see "Doubt." OMG. They did such an outstanding job of re-creating the whole Catholic School experience I felt like I was 9 years old again!!
PSH, and Meryl were outstanding, as usual, but Amy Adams was exquisite, too.

Glad to hear Brothers' music is coming along. The article from the Columbia paper didn't really say much about Nailed.

Anon, thanks form the heads up! I'm delighted to see Reese and Jake hanging with RD,Jr. & his wife in Ojai. Wonder if Reese got her chickens that lay blue eggs...

I'm enjoying visiting with my daughters and various relatives.This year was comparatively tension free bcz we decided to cool it on gifts and just enjoy each other. No running around being frantic. Just more eating(!) Youngest Daughter left today, Eldest daughter will go back to NYC on New Year's Eve.

extra said...

Ha! I knew they spent the holidays in Ojai!! Great to see Jake and Reese hanging with RDJ and his wife, great to see Atticus too.
Looks like they spent the night at the ranch with J&R, thanks for the heads up anon!

get real said...

Yay, great to see you (((Sass)))!! Sorry about your hip injury. Really glad you stopped to chat with us! :D

And a big yay to the Jake/RDJ/Reese/RDJ wife/Atticus pics!!!! LOVE Jake and RDJ together and how freaking cool they spent so much time together!

Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays.

Monica said...

Robert is a very stylish!
I think Jake is using the shirt of Jack Twist!

Here is the article on Robert and Jake:
Interfaith Celebrities

shondra said...

So happy to see Jake hanging with RDJ!!! Love Jake and Reese's matching bubble jackets, lots more pics on IHJ!

chica said...

When we didn't see them for a week I figured they were at the ranch, and I love RDJ!! So happy Jake and Reese invited him and his wife to the ranch.

Glad you stopped by Sass, take care of yourself and get better real soon.

My cable Co. is offering free channels this weekend and they are showing a bunch of Jake and Reese films:

BBM, Jarhead, Zodiac, Fear and Rendition all today and I think they showed Legally Blonde yesterday!

Anonymous said...

I'm always glad to see Jake and Reese pictures, but I'm kind of sad to see photographers following them around two days in a row in Ojai.
I thought the farm in Ojai was supposed to be Reese's chance to find a quiet place for her family away from the paparrazzi always following them.

I wonder if this was deliberately staged since the kids weren't there. Maybe there is another exclusive spread coming up in one of the magazines?

ojai said...

The pics were taken while they were in town shopping, jogging, etc. They are no where near where the ranch is which is far away from the shopping area.

I would assume Reese and Jake spent Christmas eve/ Christmas with the kids in Brentwood, at home.

These pictures were taken Friday/weekend, I assume Ryan is spending this time with them while Jake and Reese spend some time at the ranch.

They don't look annoyed like they usally do when they spot the paps so I don't feel bad looking at them, as long as they don't follow them to the ranch!

Anonymous said...

You shouldn't feel bad about the paps. Jake and Reese clearly alert them to where they will be. If you really think paps hang out in Ojai then I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

New pics, belated new post :)
