Little Greenie

Jake Gyllenhaal & Global Green USA Launch National Green Schools Initiative.

Jake and Global Green USA President Matt Petersen visit Green Service Day at the Global Green USA launch of National Green Schools Initiative at Manual Arts High School on February 19, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.

So not only do we get to see Jake in full-on horticulturist mode, a place I'm sure he's very comfortable in...

Because really it's just one step away from Farmer Jake and all that...

It seems he also paid a visit to the hair salon, blah blah blah, his hair looks gorgeous...but more importantly, it appears my personal prayers have been answered!!

Praise jebus! The caterpillars have been neutralized! Take THAT, Jennifer Connelly!

And from that 4 hour Fred Leighton expedition we get only one measly photo?

Wait a he putting something in his pocket???

A very brief video, basically showing Jake's back at the store. But it's interspersed with Luxembourg Garden shots :)

Great post, FL! Jake looks like he really was enjoying his Green visit. I bet he really loves going out to the farm and getting physical... I mean with the goats, and the pigs, and the chickens, and the vegetables...never mind.(heh)

And yessss! You spotted it. I couldn't figure out what it was. His brows. Very well done, Jake!

I hope one of those students is going to post their own account of the visit somewhere.:)

I assume that you're being sarcastic? ?? I thought we all agreed that we don't want our beloved pap-stalked... ;)

FluorescentLamp said...

Was I out sick the day that note was passed around class?

UV, you got some 'splainin' to dooooo!

UltraViolet said...

I'm so confused - one day, we're exhorted to get the PapMobile; the next, we're wishing for a Pap-free zone. Which is it?

Oh, and Extra, thanks for confirming that I haven't lost my mind on that Fred Leighton OK pic.

UltraViolet said...

You can tell FL is happy about the eyebrows, because she even posted two RIGHT profile shots of Jake!

Anonymous said...

Very nice post. :)

FluorescentLamp said...

*snerk* Well it was the right eyebrow causing the affront to humanity. ;-)

suvee said...

LOL..... love this post! Great powers of observation, FL. I'm not sure I would have noticed the tamed eyebrows.

He's looking good. :)

FluorescentLamp said...

Ooooh thanks for uploading the video to the end of the post, UV.

I love those rare glimpses of seeing how taken he is with those kids. Sweetness.

UltraViolet said...

Rare glimpses with the kids - precious.

Jake's long hair flowing - even more precious.

Okay, they are equally precious. And I wish Splash would just release that whole Paris reel instead of doling it out in dribs and drabs. But I guess that is better than none at all.

extra said...

What a great post! He looks great and yes the eye brows are tamed!

Farmer Jake, LOL!! I'm sure he has a lot of experience now, I'm really curious to know what he actually bought last week!

Thanks for finding and posting that video, love seeing Jake with Reese, Deacon and Ava.

chica said...

Global grees USA is a wonderful organization and I'm so happy to see that Jake is involved with it.

He looks great, haircut, shaved and trimmed eyebrows!!!

Splash seems to be releasing video from that trip in snippets, interesting that they used that footage of them in Paris with the kids with the shopping for jewelery bit or am I reading to much into it?

Yeah, it looks like Jake is comfortable with some farming chores!

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
I'm happy to see Jake involved with an organization on preservation of the environment.

Thanks for highlight the most beautiful eyes of the world, FL.: D

Wait a he putting something in his pocket???
He is Jake Clyde Gyllenhaal! You remember?:)

office of nancy pelosi said...

I'm happy to see Jake involved in this organization too, what a great cause. He looks really good here and i'm so happy he decided to trim those unruly eyebrows, he looks so much better!

If i'm not mistaken F. Leighton makes custom jewelery/rings and that may explain Jake being in that store for four hours. He could have ordered it and stopped by and it wasn't ready so he decided to browse/shop and purchased the earrings? Just speculation on my part!

I always thought that the home/ranch in Ojai was meant for more than a weekend getaway down the line. With the purchase of the pigs, talks of chickens I don't think they would buy farm animals for the ranch and then just see them on the weekend.

Love the video, thanks for posting!

agent_krycek said...

Hmmm, the Gyllenhaal crime wave appears to be ongoing then =D

According to this blog Nailed doesn't have a distributer , but has a rumored spring release. Brothers release is rumored to be in the Summer. We need confirmed release dates not rumored dates!

Good to see Jake out promoting this.

sheba baby said...

Are my eyes decieving me? Is that Mr. Gyllenhaal w/o a hat and eyebrows trimmed and neat? Yes it is!!

Good to see him involved with this group and he looks great.

I picture him on the farm/ranch right now chasing the goats off the roof, LOL!!

Love the shopping for jewelery story, and the video. I love seeing Jake, Reese and the kids together, and yes he is quite taken with the kids.

I would like some concrete information on Jake's films too sag.

gabbana said...

Jake looks so good lately - in some of those pictures he looks like he is only 20 years old....

I am happy to see Jake doing charity work - everyone seems to be very exited....who can blame them?

Thanks for the link, Sag actor, this is the first time I see "Brothers" and even "Nailed" mentioned on a "most anticipated movies in 2009" list. Usually it is seen as bad sign when a film ready to start suddenly gets delayed.On IMDB there are some November release dates for "Brothers" in Europe - so a late summer date for the US makes sense. With this cast, director and writer I cannot believe why they don´t try to pushing it.

Not sure about "Nailed" - this film probably has to be R-rated and the plot could offend some people. I would show the film at some smaller film festivals to see how the audience reacts.

With his next projects also a bit being up in the air I am happy that PoP looks very promising.

And as much as I enjoy all the jewellery, marrying or holidays stories, it is time that Jake G., the actor is getting attention again.

Narcissa said...

Wow, he looks so young! And hot.

Great to see him doing public-type stuff again, if you know what I mean.

shondra said...

Yes, he looks really young and hot!

He has filmed 3 movies back to back and we have all missed him doing events like this. Don't know if he is taking a break or not from filming anything but I wouldn't be surprised if he did.

I love reading about the engagement rumors, trips and I love hearing and reading about Jake and Reese and the kids because they are are part of his life but I can't wait until he starts promoting his movies!

Hear, hear. :)

UltraViolet said...

Apparently Jake was in Ojai last weekend. And here's another cute sighting.

Anonymous said...

Great post FL, Jake looks so young and thanks for the link UV, where did you see that Jake was in Ojai?.

josie said...

Great post FL, glad to se Jake involved in this organization. He looks so sexy young in these pictures!

Thanks for that link to that sighting UV. It must have been when he returned to L.A. Last Friday/weekend. And he was with Deacon and Reese!

Here is another sighting, don't know how recent it was:

SIGHTINGS Cher, Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn, Radiohead.

It looks like both Jake and Reese were involved in charity events this past week:

She looks great, no engagement ring, just the gold band she has been wearing.

There is some chatter that Reese may be a presenter at the Oscars on Sunday.

Monica said...

Hello, babblers!
The club should be interesting!:)

Thank's for all links!
Josie, the look of Reese is great. She is so young!

I'm in the rhythm of the carnival! It's carnival in Brazil!:):):)

bobbyanna said...

I've read some things about Demme and her night club ventures before. Fraught with difficulty. I know one of her clubs was shut down by police for a lot of underage drinking and oother "questionable practices."

The article seems ambiguous to me. I got the impression they were hoping to attract "people like" Jake, Reese, etc. Jake went to clubs occasionally, a few years ago, but I think he outgrew that scene. I don't think I ever read about Reese being spotted at some club, unless it was a private party, or some other special occasion. They seem to prefer house parties.

I think the idea of not telling us who's presenting is dumb! I hope Reese is presenting. But I'm afraid the Oscars are going to be cheesey...again. I love Hugh Jackman. But the producers insist on making the Oscars a 1960's variety show. I like the Bafta format a lot better.

(I really loved Slumdog.The news showed the little kids arriving in Los Angeles from Mumbai. They are so sweet and so excited! I'm practicing my Bollywood dance steps. For exercise. :) )

chica said...

I agree bobbyanna about that sighting at that club. Jake used to go to a lot of clubs with Kiki and if i'm not mistaken, she owned Teddy's(I think), a club in L.A. that Jake and Kiki used to hang out at and is now kaput!

Looks like she is trying to lure back some former customers.

The more I hear about the Oscars the more I cringe, they sound cheesier than usual. I like Hugh and I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing Heath and Slumdog win, but other than that, meh.

The keeping the presenters secret is a joke, a lot of names are floating out there already. We will find out soon enough if Reese is presenting.

Reese does look really young there and thanks for that link UV!!

Anonymous said...

When I saw h pics of Jake at that Greenevent I tought, wow he reallylooks young in these pictures, then the next day pics show up of Reese at a charity event I have to say the same thing: wow she really looks young i these pictures!!

I think they bring out the best in each other and wonder if there is any truth in the latest round of rumors.

Narcissa said...

WDW has a clip from the Shopaholic film showing the PoP poster. Blink and you miss it!

gabbana said...

Ladies & Gents - please have the first look at the "Prince of Persia" poster:

Prince of Persia Poster

Also WDW over on her blog made some screen caps from the video.

Just a glimpse but makes me want to see more - looks really like a bad-ass prince....

Anonymous said...

WOW, Thanks gabbana.

josie said...

Wow is right! Thanks narcissa and gabanna!

suvee said...

Lots of people to thank.....

Thanks, sag actor, for the link to the playlist site. Finally, Nailed and Brothers make it on a 2009 movies list!

Thanks, UV, for the blog link of the Reese & Jake sighting. I love how so many non-Gyllenhaalic bloggers are compelled to mention how HOT he is. :)

Thanks, Josie, for the Reese at the charity event link. Love her dress... she really looks good.

Thanks, gabbana, for the PoP poster link. A little too brief a glimpse IMO. By the time my eyes focused, the Prince was gone. So glad I did not spend any $ on Shopaholic just for that.

sag actor said...

Sounds like Reese wil be presenting on Sunday. The Academy seems to be having problems geting presenters.Some actors are giving bothe legit or lame reasons:

"Winslet, the Best Actress shoo-in, claimed she was too "nervous" to take it on.) One of the few bigtime actresses who didn't balk was Reese Witherspoon"

Lemon said...


"Reese Witherspoon turned up to make a speech about the work UNICEF and Montblanc have been doing.

[Reese] did get asked whether she was ready to marry her actor boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal and she blushed and said: “No, erm, no, no no.” I guess that’s a no then!"

office of nancy pelosi said...

Thanks for the links sag actor and Lemon! It does look like Reese will be presenting on Sunday. I'm not going to speculate if Jake will be escorting her because he probably wont. He didn't escort her to the PC awards and she didn't go with him to the GG's.

Since Reese said that she wasn't ready for marriage when she was promoting FC, I didn't think she was ready now.

Us says that he bought earrings which he probably did,the other rags decided that rings were more interesting!!

I had no idea she was guest of honor for the event and that she donated $50,000!

BTW, she lookd fab! I wonder if the earrings she is wearing are fro Jake.

Thanks for that link UV!

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for all the links, everyone. The PoP poster glimpse was subtler than I thought it would be. Glad someone finally captured it.

As for Reese's "not ready" answer, that can, of course, be interpreted more than one way :)

I also doubt Jake will escort Reese to the Oscars, OONP, but I have to say, I wish he would. I'm dying to see these two together at a big event. Sadly, they continue to refuse my advice on these matters!

Finally, you can preview the new U2 album. "White As Snow" is the song that will be on the Brothers soundtrack.

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

They comment on U2 and Brothers:

"'White As Snow'. A striking change of tone brings this austere, mournful, finger-picking acoustic lament about war-torn Afghanistan seen through outsider‘s eyes. U2 have not played the Celtic folk card in such an unadorned manner since the 1980s, although the mood here is less one of sepia-tinted rustic introspection than brooding, remorseful unease. Think Rubin-era Johnny Cash with a hint of Metallica’s 'Unforgiven'. Adapted from a traditional folk melody, 'White As Snow' is destined for the soundtrack of Jim Sheridan’s new film, Brothers. A sublime moment of quiet contemplation on a otherwise crowded, noisy album."

Anonymous said...

Adapted from a traditional folk melody.

I wondered why it sounded a little bit familiar - like a hymn. It is a different sounding album, I liked some of the track a lot tho, especially this one.

paula said...

What a beautiful song, thanks for the link UV. Makes me anxious to see Brothers.

Both Jake and Reese look stunning in these recent pictures of them,they definately are happy and it shows!!

Thanks narcissa and gabbana, the poster looks kick ass!!!

Love that sighting UV, thanks!!

The Oscars are tonight! If Reese is a presenter my bet: No Red carpet and no Jake.

My predictable predictions:

BP: Slumdog

BA: M. Rouke:(although i think Penn may pull it off)

BA: K. Winslet

BSA: H. Ledger

BSA: P. Cruz

Anonymous said...

The Mirror asked Reese if she had plans to marry Jake and she said, "Not yet." !!!!!

chica said...

That song is lovely UV, thanks for the link. I love U2!

My choices are the same as yours Paula for the winners tonight except that I think that Penn will win for Milk.

Anonymous said...

There was a bomb explosion in a heavy tourist bazaar area of Cairo and one person was killed and more then 20 were injured. I hope that announcement of Jake and Reese's trip to Egypt was not true.

Monica said...

Good night, babblers!
Oscar line-up

Go Heath!!

extra said...

Thsnks monica!!!

shondra said...

Live blogging from Tom O'Neill and Paul Sheehan from the LA Times:

Reese has been added to the list of presenters.

suvee said...

Whoa! RDJ is looking very, very good.

chica said...

Yes he does look good suvee!!

office of nancy pelosi said...

Brangelina are in the house or I should say on the red carpet! They looked OK, but Anne Hathaway and Natalie portman look amazing and RDJ looked so hot!!

The kids from Slumdog were adorable but Ryan Seacrest is a ass.

FluorescentLamp said...

RDJ looks younger than he has in about 15 years.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I think RDJ, Jake and Reese have been hitting one of those spas in Ojai! I swear all three of them all looked a lot younger.

Anne Hathaway is hands down the best dressed IMO.

UltraViolet said...

So what do people think of the big new format? I thought the Supporting Actress presentation was a disaster. But I loved Penelope Cruz's speech.

And I like Hugh, but I didn't think the opening was very clever.

Monica said...

I agree with you, UV!

chica said...

I'm not feeling the new format at all so far UV. Let's just say that the opening reminded me of some HS musical number.

Happy that Penny won, she deserved it but if they plan on presenting all the acting awards this way, the show will end at 4:00 AM!

FluorescentLamp said...

I loved the bright lights around the stage at the beginning. Ooooh shiny!!

I thought the song and dance number was fun - it showcased Hugh quite nicely. And Anne can hit the high notes. Who knew.

Not crazy about the lead actor nomination presentations.

Tina Fey and Steve Martin were fun.

Jennifer Aniston needs to do something different with her hair. Ooooh, camera pan to Brad and Angie.

Sarah Jessica Parker finally had the mole removed. Yay.

Um, that's all I got.

extra said...

I had no idea Anne could sing! I liked the opening musical number.
Could have done w/o the Brangelina shots when Aniston was presenting.

Loved the Stiller bit on Joaquin, funny!!!!

suvee said...

Honestly? The changes in the format seem minor to me...... tweaks rather than transformative changes.

Yeah. who knew Anne H. has such a good voice?!

Okay, the James Franco/Seth Rogan bit was so funny IMO!

UltraViolet said...

Monica - thanks for linking to the running order. I like knowing what's coming up.

Anne sounded great. I guess she'll do well in her Shakespeare in the Park gig!

Of course they shouldn't have cut to Brad and Angie, but it would have been a letdown if they hadn't. Why start being classy now?:)

I thought Jennifer looked good. As does Angelina. Brad looks good, except for the 'stache, which I know isn't his fault.

And Tina Fey and Steve Martin were fun, I agree.

Both the romance and the comedy montages were lame. And spare me the Twilighters, please!

UltraViolet said...

I thought the Franco/Rogen thing went on too long, but I'm happy they've shown a male/male kiss twice tonight. Some progress.

I have no need for this Beyonce/Hugh number.

chica said...

Heath won. His father is on stage now with I think one of his sisters and is mom. Damn, I'm about to start crying.

UltraViolet said...

Sigh. It just never gets any easier. Bless the Ledgers for wanting to celebrate Heath's life.

Monica said...

Heath deserves deserves deserves deserves deserves!


Monica said...

New photos of Jake at IHJ

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the heads-up, Monica. He looks good!

Poor Reese is getting crucified for her dress and make-up. I actually liked the make-up. :)

Maybe she and Jake will make a party or two?

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Anne Hathaway is also a lyric singer and as first soprano, in 1998 it she had the privilege of giving two concerts in the Carnegie Hall as member of the All-Eastern US High School Honors Chorus.

GettyImages has images of J&R at the 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. They're looking nice.

Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish are there, too.

Wonderful new pics - new post.

Thanks for the heads-up, WalkTheLine. Good to see you - and appropriate, on Oscar night :)
