At last

So the critics hated your dress and some people thought your make-up was emo. Who cares when you've got the best accessory a girl can have at the Academy Awards? No, not Oscar.


Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon make the scene at the Vanity Fair party. And they look gorgeous.

"Oh no, she didn't!"

Penelope is having a very good night!

People has a poll on Reese's dress, and so far "Loved it" is winning, surprisingly.

People just like Reese, I think.

Well, you know, some people :)

UltraViolet said...

Babbling here, but I do wonder how it was for Jake to see Heath win the award. I wonder if he was backstage with Reese or where he was at the time.

walktheline said...

The blue is very striking.

Jake looks really youthful in these shots.

Anonymous said...

Jake and other Academy members were instrumental in Heath getting the award.

UltraViolet said...

Added a few more pictures. I hope we get even more as the night wears on.

Bette said...

My computer is running in safe mode so I can't see the glorious new pictures, but they showed up at an official event together! I think this might mean it's really serious now between them. I was checking for a ring though, I won't lie. I can't really see the pictures yet so I can't tell if there was one.

agent_krycek said...

I actually can't make my mind up about that dress - love the colour, just, maybe, a bit to 'drappy' for my tastes.

They look lovely together, first 'official' attendance, things are hotting up (although the ring does appear to be missing)

office of nancy pelosi said...

Finally! When she didn't do the red carpet like I expected, I thought would be it!

They look great together. I can't make my mind up about the dress. I like the color but it's a bit too "busy". Also I wish she had done something with her hair like wear it up, but who cares, she was with Jake.

No major surprises last night, Heath's win is poignant and i loved Heath's father's speech.

Really happy for Kate's and Slumdogs wins.

They look lovely together, thank you UV. I like the dress.

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Magnificent novelty !!!

Thanks UltraViolet !!!

Jake è sempre bellissimo, ma se devo dirla tutta meritava una donna altrettanto bella al suo fianco...La Reese la trovo veramente brutta !

Anonymous said...

Beauty comes from within.

get real said...

They were there together and holding hands!!! They both look great imo and screw the critics. Also, Jake looks so gorgeous talking to Penelope, Anthony and Sean!

The tribute to Heath from his family after he won (!) was heartbreaking and beautiful.

suvee said...

Don't have time to leave a proper comment, but I wanted to tell UV....... thank you, thank you, thank you! My Monday morning just got a whole lot better!

chica said...

Yess!!!! They look amazing together!

He looks wonderful, Reese's dress? I have to think about it again, it's a dress from some new and young L.A. designer. Doesn't matter, she is beamng and so is he!

Thanks for posting the pics so quickly.

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
I'm so happy with the victory of Heath!
Heath deserves deserves deserves

Jake and Reese are so young and beautiful!
Loved the photo of Jake with Penelope.

UV, I liked the color of the dress, makeup and hair.

extra said...

Wow, they look great!! Thanks so much UV for posting them

I bet those earrings and ring are from F. Leighton. The ring looks gothic, sort of like her dress and make up. I know a lot of actresses wear his stuff both for events and personal so it's hard to determine if Jake bought them for her last week.

Us said he purchased earrings, if it's the pair she is wearing they are beautiful. The dress is too overwhelming for her IMO, I do like the color though.

I was a mess watching Heath's parents except his award last night. It was a sad but heartfelt speech.

FluorescentLamp said...

Well slap my ass and call me Betty! I didn't think it would happen. I poo-poo'd all those earlier sightings of him being there but some others were more confident.

He still looks great. The eyebrows are still under control. I'm of two minds about Reese's dress though.

Oh and I see what you did there with the title of the blog post. ;-)

verdeblusm said...

Hello from Italy Gyllenbabblers!
I'm really happy to see them togheter in their first official event.They both are amazing!My dream is come true...
P.S. Yesterday here in Italy,I watched on E Enterteinment TV Special, 53 minutes about Reese (almost 10 minutes about Reese and Jake:E! showed stuff as photos and clip,about their relationship from the beginning:first trips in Rome...Paris...Morocco etc.)

verdeblusm said...

Oops!Sorry I made a mistake!
Together not togheter!!!

Anonymous said...

I think the dress is so busy because she's trying to camouflage her belly. Ocassionally she looks pregnant in photos but the next photo she doesn't so it just turns out to be that particular picture making her look preggo when she's really not. But for the last three photos now I've definitely see a little belly and my instinct tells me it's something more than a little pooch.

mary said...

I almost faint when I see them holding hands in the party.It's the most beautiful scene.We really really wait for so long.I hope the red carpet is coming soon.

UltraViolet said...

Just added a couple more - I love the one where you can't really see Jake, but you can see how happy Reese is :)

UltraViolet said...

I didn't think it would happen. I poo-poo'd all those earlier sightings of him being there but some others were more confident.

Oh, Bettye of little faith :)

Hee. Yes, I know that term applies to me usually. But last night, for some reason, I thought we might just get somewhere.

And you know how much I've been whining, er waiting for this to happen!

Oh and I see what you did there with the title of the blog post.

:) I have my moments. Even at 3AM. Actually, they are usually at 3AM!

Anonymous said...

Some women bloat really badly at certain times. Wouldn't it be horrible if someone calls you pregnant when you have a little weight on you. Leave Reese alone with the speculation, it's unnecessary and unkind. When they're ready to announce their business then let's have it. Until then :x

UltraViolet said...

I just want to say hi to all those people clicking over from various places.

Welcome to those anons and others who've posted. And don't be shy, lurkers - say hi. We don't bite. As long as you play nice :)

bobbyanna said...

Yessss! What a glorious surprise!!! I definitely agree. This is a major step, almost like doing a red carpet together...except without the annoying media questions.

Jake looks so, so good! I'm going back and forth about Reese's dress. I like the color. I like the idea...but somehow it doesn't translate, and yet, it was different and definitely not boring. They look so relaxed and content together. Very much a couple. (sigh!)

The Show: had some lovely moments. Heath's family had me in tears. Well, actually Heath had me in tears...along with everyone in that auditorium. The Ledgers are a remarkable family.

I love Hugh Jackman, but even he couldn't keep the cheese out of the show. All I can say is: Sometimes, Beyonce', you should just say NO! And Queen Latifah singing the In Memoriam segment was way over the top. They seemed to play music at several inappropriate times during presentations, too.

I really liked the way the acting presentations acknowledged all the individual nominees. Ann Hathaway's singing with Hugh was delightful, and she looked amazing last night. I enjoyed Tina Fey and Steve Martin. Impeccable timing. Not a Ben Stiller fan.

The Slumdog kids stole my heart. They looked darling, and the tiniest boy was just delicious when he was telling Ryan Seacrest:" This is so unbelieveable!"

Mostly happy, especially for Kate, and Penelope, and Sean. But now that awards season is over, I've gotta say it. Sometimes, a little Kate goes a long way.

I'm looking forward to more pictures over the next few days, and hopefully some gossip!

Gyllenspoon shine said...

"Just added a couple more"

I want more lol

UltraViolet said...

Whoever said they like the pics of Jake with Sean and Anthony, I agree. I was thrilled to see a variety of people with Jake. There's one of him and Salma Hayek that I haven't gotten up yet.

Sometimes, a little Kate goes a long way.

FL, is that you? :)

Kate did me in this awards season. I used to be a big fan, but I just got tired of her woe is me, I never win anything act.

I heard tell that Jake and Reese were at the Night Before party the night before the Oscars. Hope we'll get some gossip on that one. A couple of VF party tidbits. First, from the AP:

Best supporting actress winner Penelope Cruz happily munched on a brownie, later hugging Tilda Swinton. Amy Adams laughed in a tight cluster with Uma Thurman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon.

From Vanity Fair:

Anne Hathaway catching up with Salma Hayek as jake Gyllenhaal squeezes past. Star sandwich.

Anonymous said...

I actually loved her dress - sometimes navy is softer than black, but performs the same function as black formality. Navy looks sometimes looks softer, and it does have black trim. Most of the gowns were more formal than for the other awards ceremonies, for Oscars! You're right, who needs any other accessory? ;)

UltraViolet said...

I like the color of Reese's dress, but there's too much going on. And those awful plastic whatever-they-were on the sleeves totally ruined the look.

But later on, a diferent flesh-colored accessory elevated it :)

Speaking of whom, added a solo pic of Jake arriving at the bash.

Nicole said...

Wow, almost a Red Carpet. I'm glad to see them together.They looked great together. I liked her dress , especially the colour.

I'm also happy for Kate and Sean , they are both great actors. I love Penn since Dead Man Walking. Still can't watch this one without crying.

The speech by Heath's dad was very moving , I'm just happy that Heath won.

Anonymous said...

I love her hairstyle the last couple of days, pulled back with a few tendrils falling forward. They certainly look like a couple now, and she looks possibly a teensy bit nervous, and he's there supporting her, big strong hand holding hers. Very nice. I have to say I'm glad the hemming and hawing about are they or aren't they may be done. :)

UltraViolet said...

There hasn't been any hemming or hawing from them for a long time now. That has come from people who were waiting for them to issue a press release or something. Or people who didn't want to believe their eyes.

That said, I agree that it's great to see them at a big-time Hollywood affair.

Wanted to make sure to say hi to WalkTheLine, Bette (I hope you have gotten to see the pictures by now!), Agent K (I think the ring had to take a backseat to the Party Jewelry!), OONP, Leonor, Rosa, Get Real, suvee, chica, Monica extra, verdeblusm, bobyanna, mary, gyllenspoon and Nicole!

Nice to see so many familiar faces today.

Hope I didn't miss anyone! Like Sean Penn, forgetting to thank his wife. Oops.

agent_krycek said...

I think I've worked out my problem with the dress, it's the strange, random black bits that go over her shoulders and end up off center at her waist, looks a bit messy. Other than that she looks lovely and radiant

However, the earrings, if indeed they are the pick of Mr G - fine, fine jewellrey buying Sir, they are gorgeous.

lawgoddess said...

Aww, I am so happy. Jake and Reese out and about as an official couple, and both looking great, IMO.

A great day, because of Heath and because of this.

Thank you, loved this.

sheba baby said...

What gorgeous pictures to wake up too!! And yes this is their "official" public outing together , even though they didn't do the Red carpet but who cares!!

They looks great and I'm with you UV, love the color on the dress but it's too busy.

Except for a few clinks I enjoyed the show last night for the most part. Happy for Sean, Kate, Penny and of course Heath.

Kepp adding more pics, please!!!

verdeblusm said...

Nice to see you mee too UV and all Gyllenbabblers!
Today it's really a great day!!!!
And now let's begin to hope for wedding bells(I'm crossing my fingers)...

gabbana said...

Great pictures! They are both glowing. I also love Jake with the other actors.

"And those awful plastic whatever-they-were on the sleeves totally ruined the look."

Were those the bra straps? This is a no-go, especially at such an event - you know that every little detail will be shown, discussed and ripped.....
But on the other hand I have seen worse dresses on some movie and gossip blogs. BTW on the People poll "Loved it" is winning with (at the moment) 67%.

IMO some people are making a big deal because this is their first "official" public appearance. Hopefully many will follow.

Reese presented "Best Director"- one of the most important prizes during the night - shows the respect she has earned with her colleagues and TPTB in Hollywood.

And it was Heath moment to shine - a beautiful but sad moment....

Sean Penn made me laugh a bit - he had some nice words for Mickey Rourke but not for his wife..:-)))

Anonymous said...

Ryan and Abbie walked the red carpet as a couple at the VF party. Maybe Reese was nervous about running into them? Jake strikes me as someone who wouldn't be nervous at all about that.
Jake and Penelope must be close friends. Must have been an interesting evening.

sag actor said...

I enjoyed the awards last night even though the opening looked like the Tony Awards!!

No surprise wins, Heath parents speech was very touching and I was very happy that Cruz, Penn, Winslet and Slumdog all won.

You are so right gabbanna, presenting the best director trophy, one of the most important of the night was a big deal, I don't know that many people realize what a big deal that was.

I'm staying out of the dress debate since I know nothing about that just to stay that she really looked happy last night and so did Jake.

Anonymous said...

Did Reese chose the same designer Kate Winslet wore? Their dresses are rather similar.

walktheline said...

Hi UV!

Thanks for the additional pictures.

FluorescentLamp said...

Did Reese chose the same designer Kate Winslet wore? Their dresses are rather similar.

No they did not. Reese wore a modified Rodarte and Kate W. wore Atelier Yves Saint Laurent.

shondra said...

Yay!!! They look great, what a way to start the week.

I noticed that Reese has not been highlighting her hair lately. In these pictures and the one taken at that charity event on Friday, you can see her darker roots. She always gets highlights and looks more blonde when she goes to events like these like the PC awards.

Also her extensions match her real hair so it looks for the time being that she is letting her hair look natural. I like it this way, the highlights look a bit harsh IMO, this looks more natural although I don't like the makeup.

I like the color of the dress but that's it, too much going on. Oh well, at least the new designer is getting a lot of press!

Her gown does look similar to Kate's, I don't know but I think Natalie Portman used the same designer.

Lemon said...

t's the strange, random black bits that go over her shoulders and end up off center at her waist, looks a bit messy

That's exactly my problem. I love the colour and it fits her quite nicely, but those strap things are weird. My brain literally stopped working for a minute when I saw her dress. I don't understand where my eyes are supposed to be drawn to (other than Jake of course).

I'm so happy to see Danny Boyle's success! He's the talk of the town here, since he's a local boy. =]

ihj said...

More cute/funny pics up on IHJ. In one set it looks like J&R are talking to someone and Mikey Rourke is in the pic, then it appears that they are in a line to greet Mickey, LOL!!

The rest are of them leaving the party.

Anonymous said...

Per LA Times during the VF party:

Most awkward moment? Ryan Phillippe and girlfriend Abbe Cornish walking — or shall we say sprinting — right past Ryan's ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon, and her current love, Jake Gyllenhaal. No, neither couple stopped to exchange pleasantries. Ouch. This must make child visitation really fun.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for that, anon. Here's the link if anyone wants to read the whole story. There's also a picture of the couple. Reese and Jake, I mean :)

UltraViolet said...

Oh, and I'm so happy Stephanie has so many new pictures. The ones outside are really fun - not just the optical illusion Mickey Rourke ones, but that one where Reese is gazing at Jake. (I posted it at the end of the post.)

Smart woman.

Oh, and hi to LG, sheba babay, gabbana, sag actor, shondra, lemon, ihj and all the anons.

I agree, Agent K, abot the earrings. they are gorgeous. It was reported that both Reese and Jake were in Fred Leighton, but I'm guessing those were borrowed earrings and not bought. Though she's a lucky woman if they are hers!

And lemon and others, I think, you're right about the dress. The eye doesn't know where to go!

Finally, Jake was wearing Ferragamo shoes/ No word on Reese's, though as FL pointed out, they had to have been very high heels!

bobbyanna said...

You know,...I'm not entirely buying that Ryan& Abbie/Reese& Jake non-encounter. I don't think they are all BFFs, or that they dine or vacation together. But I do think they are cordial and pleasant when ever possible.

It's in all their interests to get along and cooperate. If they didn't speak to one another, it would be a lot more difficult to deal with vacations and trips abroad, etc. for the kids.

I'm also convinced that the last thing Jake, Reese, Ryan, and Abbie want is to make a photo op for the paparrazzi. They have been very discreet about the entire situation. No drama, no spectacle, and no gossip out here to deal with. I applaud all four of them.

I thought that was Elvis Costello as well, just coming here to post that.

Okay, I'll admit it, I am, together with my ring pondering, wondering why Reese is suddenly wearing such a flowey gown, when she's been very into fitted stuff lately - as always, I'm saying nothing!

Narcissa said...

To be honest, I couldn't care less about Ryan and Abbie. Jake and Reese look happy - and great. She suits that shade of blue, although the frock is too busy for me.

Great about Heath, of course.

Bloody hell - Jeff Wells has his 09 Oscar balloon up already! He has Brothers down as a possible Best Pic contender. Too early to speculate.

josie said...

Just catching up with all the pictures from the VF party, WOW!!

I love these pictures, they look great together. Jake looks yummy, I don't like Reese's dress, to much going on.

Thought that was Costello in the last picture!

FluorescentLamp said...

I wonder at what point Jake realized Mr. and Mrs. McManus were right behind them. I wonder if Jake even knows who Elvis Costello is. I wonder if he ever listened to his music religiously back in the early 80s and saw his Wheel of Songs tour. No, I didn't think so either. :-)

suvee said...

Oh and I see what you did there with the title of the blog post.

Yeah, that Etta James song was in my head all day! Good thing it's one of my favorites. And it is apropos in more than one way. :)

I can't get over how happy it makes me to see them as a public couple at an official event like the VF Oscar party. Maybe it's because we had such a long wait. They both look amazing and so happy.

Thanks, UV, for getting all these great pics up for us here.

Anonymous said...

The more I see the dress, the more I'm beginning to like it. It is very unique. Reese wears no other jewelry except those earrings.

I am also glad to finally see them out, holding hands, heads high, being a very loving and lovely couple.

UltraViolet said...

If you go to E! Online, they have news videos on the right-hand side of the page. In one called Raw: Oscar Post Show Parties, there is a very brief snippet of Reese and Jake at their car. We've seen the pics, where Jake is waving. If you want to see a few seconds of motion, go there.

Hi Narcissa and josie, too :)

These two have so much ease with one another and they are so attractive together. I love the way they look at one another. If they aren't married or planning to marry, they ought to be!

X17 has a video of the Vanity Fair party. Well, they have two, I think. But there's a very short snippet of Jake and Reese on Part Two.

Reese's dress said...

This comment is to uv about being surprised that people liked reese's dress with your comment that "maybe people just like her". Just because you didn't like her dress doesn't mean everybody else didn't like it. Some people can appreciate the artistry in a dress.

Im not gonna lie its wasn't one of my favorite dresses that she has worn, but it wasn't horrible either.

paula said...

I've been away from my computer for a few days and what a beautiful sight to see!! Love, love, love all the pics from the VF party.

I can't get over how young Jake looks, it must be love and the triming of the eyebrows!!

I like Reese's dress, it's the hair and makeup I don't like, the hair is blah and the make up is too heavy.

I enjoyed the show for the most part, got very teary eyed when Heath won, I still miss that man, sigh.

Thanks for all the links nad updates and Happy Fat Tuesday!

UltraViolet said...

Hey Paula - welcome back!

And Reese's dress:

Just because you didn't like her dress doesn't mean everybody else didn't like it.

As I noted in the previous post, most of the internet was aghast at the gown. So I was surprised to see such a high "loved it" percentage in the poll. My conclusion? People just like Reese. So even though the dress wasn't her best, I think people have a hard time voting "hated it" for her.

But thanks for letting me know that not everyone in the world agrees with me. That's going to make my life so much less confusing. It really explains the whole Bush phenomenon.

All this time, I've wondered what everyone else was on about. Turns out, everyone else in the world does not automatically think the same way I do. This is quite a revelation. I might have to go lie down for a bit.

"Salvatore" said...

Not only Jake's shoes, but he was dressed Ferragamo from head to toe.
Tuxedos really suit Jake. Some people (for example Mr. Sean Penn,)are not well suited for tuxedo, but Jake is. His appearance is extremely youthful! Reese looks to have lost weight. Her face seems thinner. Perhaps the longer hair? I prefer her hair not to be so long, but it also makes her look youthful.

Anonymous said...

I know it's Lainey and you can delete if you want to. She has Reese as worst dressed. I don't agree, I didn't like the dress but she certainly wasn't the worst of the night:

Back to Reese and Jakey – speculation is building that she’s pregnant. He was spotted at a jewellery store recently, and am told exclusively by a source that at a charity appearance last week, he was overheard saying that he and Reese were both “traditional that way” prompting many to assume that he meant marriage before babies. Keep you posted.

Marie said...

LOL! The charity appearance was probably Jake at that Global Green high school event, talking about composting. Lainey is just another big phoney like all these bloggers who pretend to be in the loop.

It could be Reese,not Jake talking about being "traditional." Maybe Lainey made a mistake. Because Reese did got to that charity event last week when she wore that cute short black dress.

I am her fan, and I don't think Reese would get pregnant because of her daughter. It would be a bad example. I also don't think Jake and Reese live together. I know a lot of you think they do. But I don't think she would have him in her bedroom with her children around.

Reese congratulating Kate backstage at the Oscars:

Anonymous said...

I didn't know we had reverted back to the 1950's?.

extra said...

Lainey is full of crap among other things.

The charity event was the Green event because she saw the pics of the event online and spun the sources line like the rest of the online gossip goons.

Same with the pregnancy rumors and him shopping for jewelery.

The gossip goons take stuff like that and add "sources" and post the crap.

Has any of them actually come up with any original information? .

As far as the rumors about them living together, I believe they are. I think his home is up for sale. IMO I think they actually all moved to Ojai kids and all for the most part, wouldn't surprise me to hear that she too will sell her place in Brentwood.

Love that pic of Reese and Kate backstage at the Oscars! I was hoping to see pics of them along with Jake and Sam Mendes since they are all friends. I guess they arrived and left the VF party st different times.

UltraViolet said...

I didn't know we had reverted back to the 1950's?

Not everyone thinks it's 2009 just because you do, anon ;)

Okay, I'll stop. Probably,

bobbyanna said...

I won't even go to her site much less type her name, but I mostly agree with extra. I think tho, that Reese won't unload Brentwood while the kids are in school.

One of the things I learned from my own another century...was that kids, even teenagers, need stability and predictability, and keeping that idea of home, a "nest," is one basic way to do that.

So while there was tremendous upheaval, especially for Ava who was older, some things remained constant. The home, the school, the friends, the schedule of activities, lessons, playdates, etc.

I think they are gradually getting used to the ranch and probably it will become "home" one day, but it's not close to Brentwood, and really seems inconvenient to their everyday world.

Ryan bought a new home in the Hills, a short while ago. It is very modern and didn't seem kid friendly. The yard looked like it was all swimming pool. It looked exactly like something a single guy or a couple with no kids would own.

sheba said...

"But thanks for letting me know that not everyone in the world agrees with me. That's going to make my life so much less confusing. It really explains the whole Bush phenomenon."


...Anywho.. Jake and Reese looked splendid together... And have you noticed especially in pictures how much more attractive looking he is compared to other men or some women for that matter... or is it me looking at him through rose coloured glasses?

UltraViolet said...

Hi sheba. If those are rose-colored glasses, then it's a rosy world we live in :) Jake does look better than most. and more engaged and happier and just all around everything-er!

Narcissa said...

He has a dazzling presence, even in photos. Must be a knockout in real life!

UltraViolet said...

Dazzling presence - I like that, Narcissa. Sums it up quite nicely.

Is Jake's tux blue? I thought it was black, but in some of those outdoor shots, it looks blue.

Lemon said...

I vote black UV. He is incredibly good looking. Everytime we read a report from someone who saw/met him, they always say how good looking he is. Its clearly undeniable =]

I love that picture of Kate Winslet and Reese (and how Reese is holding Kate's Oscar). And as much as I love Kate, she looks so much older than Reese! They're about the same age, yet Reese looks really fresh faced in comparison.

About 3.13 into this video is Jake talking to Sean Penn.

VF Party Wrapup

There might be more Jake/Reese sightings from the VF videos on the right of the viewer; I haven't had time to look through all of them yet.

Here's what looks like the beginning of the Jamie Foxx video. Very brief - we don't see anything we haven't seen. Except the billing order :)

bobbyanna said...

Thanks so much for these links. I'm looking forward to the music video. Damn, that VF party looks like fun.

OT: I just watched my President get hugs and kisses from Congress...and his Cabinet.:)

suvee said...

Many thanks, FL and UV for the links to the videos.

Couldn't help but notice that Jake gets top billing (over Oscar winners Forrest and Opie) in the Jamie Foxx video..... :)

UltraViolet said...

Popsugar has a poll for favorite Oscar couple. R&J are currently third, behind Brad and Angelina and Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer, in first.

A few party tidbits, true or not - who knows?

Local guy attends Oscars:

After the Oscars ended, Mills and Madsen headed to an after party thrown by Madonna and Demi Moore.

Kate Winslet wasn't there, but Leonardo DiCaprio was, Mills said. So were a lot of other big names including Jack Nicholson, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Ryan Seacrest, Simon Cowell, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melanie Griffith and Sharon Stone.

Oscar parties that went bad:

Star Jones was also boorish at her Oscars viewing party, the New York Daily News reports. She booed Reese Witherspoon’s dress and snarked that Jake Gyllenhaal “could do better.” Jealous much, Star?

Here's the original for that story.

UltraViolet said...

Cute mention of Jake at the SBFF.

chica said...

Oh man what a tease, thanks for the link to the video UV! I can't wait to see the whole video.

So J&R did some party hopping on Sunday, I was wondering if they went to another party, thanks for the link and the link to the Popsugar poll! LOL at Star Jones! She is the last one to make snarky remarks about someone else's dresss!

Yes,I watched Obama last night bobbyanna, what a sight. Long tough road ahead for everyone but he is the right man for the job.

A poster on IMDB said they saw Brothers a couple of months back, here is one of their comments.

I honestly thought it was amazing performance from everyone. I cried.. Tobey Magguire, (sp?) had a really strong role especially. They had a q&a after, my boyfriend and I stayed to participate and everyone gave input. I knew nothing about it when I went, but despite it being what I felt was a little bit of a cliche storyline, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great movies seem harder and harder to come by these days..

Must admit, as a non American, I've not quite got to grips with Star Jones, who actually is she, what does she do, apart from obviously being extremely rude I have no idea who in the hell she is. I've already admitted to my National Enquirier habit, she's often in there, but I've still no idea who she is.

OK. I hate that I know this. Star Jones is a lawyer, believe it or not. She first got famous on a cable network called Court TV during one of our famous criminal trials. I think it was O.J.'s murder trial. Not sure.

She was often featured as an "expert" on legal matters on Larry King live. ("Was" being the operative word.) She did a stint on E! as one of their Red Carpet interviewers. She was a regular on The View.

She has very generously "shared" her life with the general public. (Note sarcasm.) At the pinnacle of her fame, and celebrity career, she made her wedding a crass public occasion. Since then, she has done similar with her weight losses.

She had a well publicized feud with Barbara Walters (because at some point Star was wisely invited to leave the View,)and became essentially famous for being famous.

She is unaware her fifteen minutes are up, and would go to the ribbon-cutting of a new supermarket...for a price. That is all I know about Star. She has since divorced her husband, and and it appears she has taken to drink and will eventually sink into a sea of despond.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Thanks for all the updates and links! I was thinking the same thing Lemon when I saw the pics of Reese and Kate. Hard to believe that Kate is only one year older than Reese. I Love the picture!

Can't wait to see the entire Foxx video, looks like Jake and Reese had a great time hitting the parties Oscar night.

The State of the Union is stong again with Obama in the WH bobbyanna. He did a good job mapping out his vision for this country.

Good description of Star's "career", LOL!!!

Wow, thanks for all the clips and links, UV! You rock. :)

Glad to hear Jake and Reese got to a few parties.

Can't wait to see the Jamie Foxx video.

Btw, anyone heard from Sass? Hope she is okay.

Thanks also, FL!!

Yes, that VF video you have has Jake and Sean Penn talking! It is near the end but Sean seems animated. :)

Where can I see the picture of Kate and Reese that Lemon mentioned?

Also, totally agree with you Bobbyanna, Chica and OONP, Obama was briliant last night.

Oops, nevermind, I see the Kate and Reese pic.

Sorry to spam, lol.

Hi get real! Don't apologize - we like the enthusiasm :)

Agree on the Kate/Reese comparison. Kate is beautiful but she definitely looks older than her age.

I saw a picture of Kate and Reese embracing, and Kate seemed much larger in comparison to Reese. It wasn't the camera angle,Kate is just a proportionally larger person.

Reese on a coffee run this morning. It does look like she is letting her hair go back natural:
