Coffee run

I guess that would be more like a stroll. And I don't see any coffee. But much like many of us on the East Coast, Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon suited up to battle the fierce winter elements today. Except for them, it was what looks like some clouds and temperatures in the 60s, rather than, say, a foot of snow. You gotta love L.A.

In any case, I'm glad they got out of the house, so we'd have a post. I was trying to do a longer one, but none of the internets was cooperating tonight. So thanks, guys! And thanks, Stephanie.

Looks like Jake is providing an amusing running commentary! It's such a shame they are always so sad. Or maybe she's just laughing at his footwear.

To make up for my utter failure at doing an original post, here are some old pictures from the afterparty for the NYC Zodiac premiere. I don't think I've seen them before. Not exciting, but new, at least.

And I think I've seen this 2006 Oscar photo before, but I couldn't find it on IHJ. And I love the look, so I figured I'd post. We're still in Oscar season, right?

Oh no he didn't.

But alas I think he did. Oh Jake, you know how this upsets me so. ;-)

Reminder to any U2 fans out there - the band is on David Letterman every night this week.

Varietyis reporting on that Reese/Alexander Payne film:

Paul Giamatti, Sacha Baron Cohen and Reese Witherspoon have all committed to star in the film, which would likely land at Fox Searchlight, where Payne has a first-look deal.


here are no deals in place for the three principals, and no negotiations will take place until Payne finishes his screenplay, which he is penning with Jim Taylor. Jim Burke is producing alongside Payne.

It's funny to think of her going from playing a giant to a little person. Definitely an odd idea for a movie!

Also, some of the Monsters and Aliens pressis coming out. Nothing Jake-related in that piece. I did also see that Reese will be on Ellen this month.

suvee said...

Those California winters sure can be a bitch, huh....... wonder what the wind chill is? I am kind of loving their matching hoodies though.

Hope all you East Coast Babblers are surviving your storm okay!

suvee said...

Me again, sorry! But I forgot to say how much I love that 2006 Oscar pic....... his expression is priceless. Thanks, UV.

lawgoddess said...

I couldn't figure out what FL didn't like, but I realized it's te socks and sandals. Silly Jake.

Cute pix, thanks.

I really, really dislike Sasha Baron Cohen. I don't think I could see a film he was in. But Reese will do other movies, I'm sure.

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for the Zodiac pics, UV...and the Oscar pic. Love his expressions. Only, now, everytime I see him with his hoodie up, I get scared...about hair extensions...

Jake wearing socks with his sandals...I am so disappointed...tsk! :)

agent_krycek said...

Sorry Jake, but I'm currently pointing and laughing at your footwear, it deserves mocking. My Dad wears socks with sandles, to my enternal shame, but he's 82 years old, he's earned the right to dress like a numpty, you have not - do not do it again (and high waisted trousers, pink shirts with white collars and cuffs are also banned!).

chica said...

Socks and sandals, my eyes!!!! I hate that look seriously. Looks like they may have come from a gym. When they spot the paps he looks annoyed and turns his head and she seems amused,LOL!

Love the matching hoodies! I have not seen some of the pics from the Zodiac promotion, thanks!

I took off from work yesterday because of the snow but ai better get my ass into work today!

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
I wear sandals with socks, but not in the street!: P
But Jake is so cute!:):):)
Thanks for the photos and information UV!

paula said...

My 2 cents on the previous post and Damn Yankees: YES!!!! And I assume Jake will play both the middle aged Joe Boyd and the younger version as well. Amy Adams name has been brought up as Lola but I think that she is a bit too wholesome and young for the part.

I hope Jake isn't back to hiding his hair again, and a coffee run w/o any visible coffee cups!! They are adorable thanks for posting and posting the pics from the Zodiac PR and 2006, Jake looks great in a tux!

bobbyanna said...

Well, Jake, there goes the GQ Man of the Year or whatever it was Justin Timberlake just won! :)

OT: I love Letterman, but last night I also checked out Jimmy Fallon's first show and "slow jammin'" the news had me in stitches.

sheba baby said...

I think I remember him wearing the socks/sandal combo before when they were coming from yoga, ewwwww!!!!

Reese's new movie sounds really weird!

UltraViolet said...

Oy, I don't think Jake has ever won that, has he? Not that he really would have for 2008. But 2005/2006 should definitely have been his year!

Looks like Reese will be in Washington today. Wonder if she brought a traveling companion?

UltraViolet said...

Oops, forgot to post the relevant part of that Washington Post story:

In the afternoon, first lady Michelle Obama is expected to visit Arlington National Cemetery's Women in Military Service for America Memorial in honor of the occasion.

Earlier in the day, she will have some competition on the glamorous policymaker front when the Avon Foundation for Women announces new efforts to fight domestic violence at a news conference with actress Reese Witherspoon, Avon's "global ambassador."

Also, the Sky folks are at it again, commenting on Reese and Jake's matching hoodies:

It's the news we feared...

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal's love has deepened another level.

How? They've taken to wearing matching clothes... But what can we say? Jake and Reese do look very cute in their twin grey hoodies.

You can also vote for Jake (or not) in a poll of whose style you'd match.

bobbyanna said...

Thanks, UV. Can I just say. I am really glad Reese is involved with Avon, and doing this. They'll be launching a necklace this year to raise funds and awareness about Domestic violence.

I look forward to the day when more MEN will speak out on this issue. There are'nt enough guys willing to step up. Some years ago, I was involved in efforts to change the laws in our community so that abusers would be prosecuted, and women had more protections. Would you believe. For a long time this was even not treated as a crime!

agent_krycek said...

I do love the Sky girls, they're such unashmed fangirls of Jake.

chica said...

I'm glad that Reese and Avon are involved in this too bobbyanna.

DV is a problem that effects women from all walks of life as the sad situation with Rhianna and Chris Brown shows. And yes, I wish men would speak up more about this.

Photos of Reese on Getty Images, but no Jake. She is alone.

UltraViolet said...

I don't think anyone thought Jake would be with her at the conference, anon.

I love the Sky girls, too, Agent K. They are so funny about Jake.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I love the sky girls too, they are a hoot! Cute pics of J&R but I can't deal with Jake's foot wear!

Why would he be at her press conference??

I am so glad Reese along with the Avon Foudation are adressing domestic abuse.

Here is some more information on the press conference in DC :

UltraViolet said...

Which Gyllenhaal does google prefer?

Hee. Jake definitely used to appear first - what have Maggie's handlers been doing to up her google rank?!

Celebutopia has some of the Oscar pics in even bigger HQ. They also have the recent coffee sets in gigantic size.

Me again, sorry! But I forgot to say how much I love that 2006 Oscar pic....... his expression is priceless.

Isn't it, suvee? I know I've seen it before, but I don't know where. But I was glad to see it again.

Thanks for the Zodiac pics, UV...and the Oscar pic. Love his expressions. Only, now, everytime I see him with his hoodie up, I get scared...about hair extensions...

LOL, Bobbyanna. What is he hiding under there?? I'm still mad that he didn't let us see his long hair more often. I hope when he does the sequels (she says optimistically) that he's less shy.

But he does have the best expressions, no matter the hair :)

Not exciting? Who says? He's at his most handsome at events, and especially so in these Zodiac pics. I like his expression in these pics too. :)

Love the pics and the matching hoodies. but Jake needs to ditch the sandals and socks combo!

Thanks for the heads up on U2 on Letterman this week UV.

Maggie is getting googled more than Jake? That's surprising!

Kudos to the Avon foundation for addressing domestic violence here and abroad, glad that Reese is a part of it.
