Rue the You!

If it's Saturday it must be Paris. Bonjour, Paris!

I think there's an old Parisian folktale that says if you have the same name as a street in Paris, you are required to walk down that street at least once in your life.

Jake and Reese strolling down Rue Jacob in Paris le samedi 14 mars.





Oh girlfriend, we feel that exhaustion!

Wow, Jake looks so good. I love the thought of him and Reese in Paris (again!) I'm so happy they are getting this time together. Thanks, FL.

They are visiting really important places in their life.
Wonder if they visited the Fountain in Rome again as it would be at night and as private as the first visit.
How nice it is to share things you are interested in with someone who cares about the same things - shopping, meals and of course history. (let alone, of course, love for the work they do).

In the pictures of Jake and Reese in the toy shop in Rome, did anyone else notice the picture of Jake (with a stuffed giraffe looking over at him) where Jake is really, obviously eyeing a baby stroller, and Reese is smiling, but she is sort of turned away and she's got her arms crossed?

Thank you so much for the pictures of them in Paris. Life is good!

Bonjour Paris !
Accidenti, non riesco proprio a stare dietro a Jake...
ma quanto cammina ?
Ieri sera a Roma ed oggi lo trovo già a Parigi !!!
Vuoi vedere che a forza di camminare per i negozi italiani, non si è accorto che è arrivato a Parigi ? :-)
Question : A che ora è partito da Roma per Parigi ?

Jake does look good, Rome and Paris again for these two! We should be seeing pictures from the Paris premiere later on today. I think this is it for the European PR for MVA. I'ms so happy they managed to find some time together!

It seems they cannot bear to be apart for very long.

A very Happy Birthday to Naomi Foner, Jake's mother!

The Paris pics are really lovely. They look tired but happy.

Good morning, babblers!
Great post, FL!
I think there's an old Parisian folktale that says if you have the same name as a street in Paris, you are required to walk down that street at least once in your life.
I did not know that!

Thanks, Bobbyana! Happy Birthday, Naomi Forner!

Josie said...

Rue Jacob, great catch FL! Love the picture of Reese stretching, she must be exhausted, I know I am just looking at all the pictures this past week!

The last time I was in Paris was about ten years ago, what a beautiful city.

Happy Birthday Naomi!!

Can't decide at the moment if I like this dress or not!

bobbyanna said...

The full set of Paris cafe pictures on IHJ, are adorable. There's one where he's helping her with her coat, and several of her watching him in the simple act of putting on his sun glasses :) (sigh.)

sheba baby said...

I love the cafe pics too bobbyanna. They look so happy nd so in tune with one another.

Sounds like MVA is going to be a big hit!

I think I like the Paris pics of them too so far and I especially love the pics of them in the cafe.

I just love the fact that they always seem to find ways to be with one another while they are working. Jake has matured so much over the last few years.

They are going to so tired when they return to the states. Reese is due to appear on Leno on the 18th, Ellen the 25th and Kelly and Regis on the 27th along with the March 22n LA premiere so Reese is not done yet!

UltraViolet said...

Any French speakers out there? My high school French and babelfish tell me that this blogger got to see Jake and Reese and Kiefer last night. She seems to be a Jaw Sutherland fan, but says that Jake was taking photos to remember theit time in Paris.

Jake IS quite attached to that camera lately. It's very sweet.

Hello to everyone - I've had a terrible weekend of having too much work and not enough time to enjoy all of these photos. I love this post, though. Rue the You. Hee.

The picture of Reese stretching makes me laugh. I want to say to her, "You don't have to fake a yawn. You can just put your arm around him :)"

Of course, I'm sure she is actually exhausted.

extra said...

I don't know if my HS French is any help but I think they are saying that Kiefer entered the Hotel and he was tired, then Reese and Jake came in. I think the bloger tells Reese that her Mother? is a fan and said that Reese passed a message to her.

Jake took pictures of his charie(love) Reese and put them on his laptop for memories. I hope someone out there has a better translation!

I noticed him and the camera too UV, back in the Madrid pics. I'm getting so spoiled with these pictures of them in Europe,they are so lovely.

suvee said...

her watching him in the simple act of putting on his sun glasses

I loved that set too, bobbyanna. It's those simple little everyday things..... taking delight in watching your lover put on his sunglasses.... that are the signs of a truly good, meaningful relationship IMO. Her expression says it all. :)

I just realized that almost all of my favorite J & R photos are from Europe or the UK. Not sure why......

Thanks for the French blogger translation, UV and extra. Spanish is my second language..... I'm at a loss with French!

UltraViolet said...

New pictures of Jake and Reese dressed up and shopping at Nina Ricci.

Today, I bought toothpaste at CVS.

bobbyanna said...

"The picture of Reese stretching makes me laugh. I want to say to her, "You don't have to fake a yawn. You can just put your arm around him :)"

I was thinking the same thing! It would be so easy. I wouldn't be able to not do it! (Toothpaste is a good thing, UV.:)

suvee, she just seems endlessly fascinated by every tiny thing he does. She's besotted. I think it's delightful.I like that about her. That ten feet above the ground thing. But then, it's Jake.

Pssst, Agent K! Maybe they stopped by Nina Ricci so Reese could have a final fitting for The Dress before it gets shipped..:)

Anonymous said...

For what it's worth - translation of French blogger's post on seeing Jake and Reese:
"Reese is adorable and when I told her Mademoiselle Poupéé (“Miss Doll”) is her biggest fan, she immediately asked me to pass on a little message to her!!!
Jake takes pictures of his sweetheart with his camera as a souvenir of Paris, isn’t that sweet?! In short, they are just like us, no?!!"

X17 Has a couple of videos of J&R in Paris.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Thanks so much for the translation!! I love Paris and I love this post!

Looking at the video I realize that the guy in the wrinkled shirt in Madrid is there BG, he was with them in Rome as well.

Looked at the pics on IHJ of them at Nina Ricci, looks like he is waiting for her in the shop as she is shopping but they both came out empty handed!!

Think they are probably headed home now.

Another video of them shopping:

FluorescentLamp said...

Re the X17 videos above...As a person who hates to casually peruse shops looking for clothing and absolutely abhors hanging around while someone else does that, I have got to believe Jake Gyllenhaal has the patience of Job.

josie said...

It looks like the BG was acting like a photographer for them as well from the video. You can see him showing Jake the image in the camera before Jake went back in the store and he looked pleased!

The 2nd video must be when she was looking at summer dresses as per People. Love the blogger sighting of them in Paris, thanks so much for the translation.

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
Thanks for the translation, Anon, UV and Extra.
Jake is so funny in the first video. I love this man!

UltraViolet said...

I agree, FL. I got bored just looking at the video!

I think it's safe to say that Reese made the right decision by putting that green thing back on the rack.

I'm glad X17 got some video - i was just whining to FL last night about how they had video of every other celeb in Paris but not Jake.

Thanks for the translation, anon. I actually got most of that myself. What I didn't understand was: "qui étaient venus me faire un petit coucou en début de soirée."

To make a cuckoo? I'm assuming this is an idiom that isn't easily translated.

UltraViolet said...

Hi Monica! I always seem to miss you these days.

I do love the interwebs - I had a feeling La Fromagerie sounded familiar. The Comfort Zone goes to Paris:

From May, 2007 and a deleted blog, unfortunately:

We hung around the 6th and had lunch at a resto called Atlas and then later had cheese at La Fromagerie 31”, where we had a celebrity siting. Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal were eating there too. Tracy is organizing a cheese tasting event at the cheese place so we spent hours looking at cheese.

Monica said...

UV, you are a lovely person!
I remember this sighting!
:):):)

chica said...

I remembered that sighting, you have a good memory UV!!

The sighting was shortly after he was at Cannes I believe. Jake and Reese look really good all dressed up!

agent_krycek said...

"qui étaient venus me faire un petit coucou en début de soirée."

I'm guessing, with the use of cuckcoo, it's something along the lines of playing gooseberry, a cuckcoo is an intruder, somewhere they shouldn't be, perhaps the blogger felt they were intruding on J&R at the time?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for all the great photos and video links. This is a great site! They should be on their way home now. It sounds as if her schedule is jam packed right thru her birthday.

I hope we get to see romantic pics of Jake taking Reese out for her b'day! I will look forward to seeing her do Leno and the rest. She has been pretty luck about not getting personal questions, but it can't last.

I love them together. He is so sweet to her, helping her with her coat, opening doors, etc. His body language is very protective and sheltering. Not only does Reese have a gorgeous boyfriend, he seems like a real sweetheart, too. I'm happy for her.

ihj has the pics up now of jake shopping at fendis

josie said...

In the pics on IHJ there is one shot of Jake in Fendis and from what I see Reese (with her back turned) and their BG. In the JJ pics, they obviously seperated when they left the store to go to the airport.

Since she has some appearences on some talk shows this week, I assume they are heading home.

UltraViolet said...

Stephanie's going to need a vacation from Jake's vacation!

It's nice to see his arms :)

josie said...

Yes she will need a vacation, she just posted pics of J&R boarding the plane!!

UltraViolet said...

Yes, she did. This one is my favorite. I guess the BG doesn't get to travel on the private jet!

Or maybe Jake's just thanking him before they leave. Either way, it's a nice gesture.

UltraViolet said...

Just FYI, here's the blogger the other French blogger referred to. She's thrilled that Reese sent along a personal greeting. Very cute.

lawgoddess said...

Thanks for the links to the videos, I liked them very much.

I like the way Bobbyanna thinks- a special dress from Nina Ricci.:)

These latest photos warms my day of rain and cold!
Great to see Jake before my class of literature!:)

Lemon said...

Exactement. I love "coucou" so much. Literally, it just means hi or is a way of getting someone's attention.

qui étaient venus me faire un petit coucou en début de soirée.

Who came to say a quick hello at the beginning of the evening.

Reese really is a slow shopper. I love to shop, but I can't understand people that dilly-dally so much.

suvee said...

many thanks to the anons for the heads up on the X17 videos.

Can't gush enough over his Fendi shopping outfit.... t-shirt & jeans with big scarf, and my very favorite hat (and yes, those arms). So, so cool.

Sigh...... I'm sorry to see their whirlwind Euro trip end.

Anonymous said...

Jake looks unhappy in some of the Fendi pictures. I don't understand why he would be upset with the photographers. His girlfriend was touring European captials for a PR/Media tour to PROMOTE a movie. Naturally there is media interest. Did he think to remain invisible?

paula said...

You have a incredible memory UV an have great investigative skills!

Fromagerie 31, the sighting in 2007, sigh. I'm going to miss the daily pictures of them in Europe, it looked like they enjoyed themselves.

And you found the other blogger, the one that received the message from Reese, I love this blog!!

Thanks for the links/videos and updates!

If true: One more reason Tobey Maguire is annoying:

I spoke also with Brothers director Jim Sheridan (who said, by the way, that Brothers probably wouldn't be going to Cannes, partly because "Tobey [Maguire] doesn't want to go there")

Wells is good about getting Brothers info. I just don't know what this means - will they do Toronto instead?

I wish Wells had asked when the film would be released. Maybe one of his readers will ask.

UltraViolet said...

A more appealing story:

Jake Gyllenhaal is setting female pulses aflutter when he attempts the downward dog. During a yoga session at Yas in Venice, Calif., the “Brokeback Mountain” star began sweating like a pig. To the delight of the female class members (and a few male), Jake whipped off his Facebook Addict T-shirt, wiped himself down and rode off on his bicycle. “No joke,” says our eyewitness. “Reese Witherspoon is one VERY lucky woman.”

Facebook Addict? Really?

Does no one remember how to use their cell phone cameras?

Sigh will we ever see Brothers.

What!!!!!!!!!

agent_krycek said...

Tobey not wanting to go - isn't his wife expecting at the moment, Cannes happening around the expected birth time maybe?

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
What is your problem with Cannes, Tobey?

UV, sent a message to you in IHJ!

Tahnks for all links.

UltraViolet said...

Damn, agent k, now I feel bad. That's a legit reason. If true, I can't fault him for that.

Well, I can and I probably will, but I will concede that it's irrational!

Jake and Reese continue to look gorgous as they continues to travel around the continent...sigh.

Thanks for all the links, etc.

Boo, to hear about no Cannes. :(

But, swoon at Jake all sweaty doing yoga!

Happy St. Paddy's Day everyone!

office of nancy pelosi said...

Happy St. Patty's day to you too get real and chica!

Damn, I had a feeling that Brothers wasn't going to screen at Cannes. If the reason that Tobey isn't going is because his wife is expecting, that's legit but can't the movie screen with Jake, Natalie and Jim???

Forgot to say Happy St Patrick's Day to everyone!

Socialite's Life has at least two Jake shots from Fendi I hadn't seen yet. Smirk alert, suvee!

UltraViolet said...

I'm spamming, but this is a nice article. Roughly translated, it says that Jake and Reese enchanted all the proprietors with their kindness and that Reese looked like a star with the sunglasses but kept it simple. And then:

"Two Americans in Paris who have the class!"

Hee.

sag actor said...

That's not good news regarding Brothers. I know that there are tons of other festivals like TFF but this film has already been pushed back.

Dreamworks has really been promoting MVA overseas, it will definately open big here. Reese and Jake looked like they got sonme qulity time together, good for them.

OT: My thoughts and prayers to Natasha Richardson, her husband Liam Neeson and family. Natasha suffered a serious brain injury after a sking accident in Canada.

Lemon said...

I'm sure they can live without Toby at Cannes. Is he really necessary?

That article is really cute UV. Looks like Jake fits right in with the Parisians:

Very well-styled, Jake, in jeans, T-shirt and hat looked relaxed in the street, among the crowd of Parisians who took advantage of the good weather.

SAG Actor, I get the impression that Jeffrey Katzenberg is looking to make Reese his big name star. If MvA is successful it could result in sequels and spin-offs (à la Shrek).

Anonymous said...

I love all these tidbits you find on here.

gabbana said...

The Cannes comment does not make much sense to me - "ZODIAC" was presented by Jake and Mark R. (not to forget Fincher and Sevigny) in Cannes - Robert Downey jr. was one of three main actors and he also was not there. Why can´t Jake, Natalie and Jim Sheridan promote the film?

The only halfway "official" information we are getting are some tidbits from Wells- otherwise it looks like the film does not even exist.

I hope Jake has more luck with his future projects.

I really enjoyed the pictures, blogger comments, little videos and other tidbits from Reese and Jakes european trip. Thanks again for your hard work, UV & FL!

agent_krycek said...

Tobey is very central to the plot of Brothers, I don't want to say too much, but having seen the original, I can sort of understand why they'd want him there. I know a lot of people are spoiler free here, so I don't want to say too much, but although there are 3 leads, Tobey's 'journey' is really the central one.

Narcissa said...

Let's hope that Jake's luck will turn after two films - Nailed and Brothes - which can't seem to even get out of the starting gate.

....while reflecting (cf Natasha Richardson) that there are things far more important than hit films.

One can hardly imagine what her family are going through now.

bobbyanna said...

I was always a little suspicious of the proposed Cannes premiere. Since there's buzz about how great the acting is in Brothers, etc. maybe a Fall opening would be about right.

Maybe I even read speculation about an October opening. It's all a bit foggy. I won't be surprised if it screens at TIFF. I know it isn't screening at Tribeca. I'll be in NYC during Tribeca so I wish it was screening. (

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all who celebrate it!!!!

I was so sorry to hear about Natasha Richardson. I hope she will recover.

UV/FL I am loving all the tidbits about the Parisian interlude.:) Can I register a formal complaint about the people in the yoga class at Yas? Fine. I know they were in a yoga class.

But how hard would it have been to sneak a cameraphone pic of Jake, even if you and seventy other people were also doing the downward dog! (That sounds so nasty!:))

suvee said...

Bless you, UV, for unearthing that great new smirk pic! It just might be my new fav. :)
It has everything...... a perfect view of the incredible Gyllenbod, that hat, and his sweet, self amused smirk. This photo is a keeper!

I can honestly say that I have never, ever seen anyone remotely as hot as Jake in any yoga class I have taken. Yas might want to prepare for a dramatic spike in attendance......

Thanks for the Paris tidbit about J&R's kindness and class..... I never get tired of independent confirmation of his decency and good manners. And I'm not surprised to know that Reese has those same attributes.

UltraViolet said...

Well, the Star story sure has picked up steam - it's everywhere. I wonder if we'll get an official denial. OR confirmation :)

The third time was the charm for Jake Gyllenhaal!
After two previous proposals to girlfriend Reese Witherspoon, he again got down on bended knee — and she finally said the word he's been waiting to hear: "Yes!" But she's having a hard time keeping the news under wraps. When Reese arrived at Sony Studios in Culver City, Calif., to shoot an Avon commercial recently, she was wearing her new engagement ring, two set sources tell Star — but then decided she wasn't ready to go public.

"It was gorgeous, and everyone noticed it right away," says one eyewitness. "But she took it off as soon as she saw people staring. Reese stuffed it in her bag and didn't put it on again the rest of the day."

Still, the large diamond sparkler was the talk of the two-day shoot, says the second source. "There was already word out that she and Jake had gotten engaged, so the ring absolutely confirmed everybody's suspicions." ...

Now the couple of two years is fast-tracking a wedding, and Reese is insisting on an intimate and simple affair. One insider reveals Reese is even thinking about having a Southern barbecue — likely at their Ojai, Calif., home, which she and Jake often use as a romantic getaway. "Jake and Reese want to get married sooner rather than later," says the insider. "They've been playing house for far too long, and they're ready to make it official!"


Make of it what you will.

UltraViolet said...

Forgot to say thanks to Verde and Lemon for the cuckoo translation yesterday. I'm happy to know what it meant - I was sort of obsessing over it :)

Yas might want to prepare for a dramatic spike in attendance...

Hee - good point, suvee. Very good PR for them. And glad you liked the smirk pic. I did, too.

bobbyanna said...

I think the people at Star read Gyllenbabble...:) :)

lawgoddess said...

"Does no one remember how to use their cell phone cameras?"

LOL. They were too stunned to move.

UltraViolet said...

Hee, LG. Good point. Can't blame them - not sure what I'd do.

And Bobbyanna, should we wave hello to all the Star writers lurking?

shondra said...

Well the story took about a week to hit the blogs, I guess that's because the Star decided to put the stoy online, it was in their print rag last Friday when the current issue hit the stands.

Last year they denied it, twice!! They do lurk here as we already know, hee!!!

Anonymous said...

I wonder whether Regis, Jay Leno or Ellen will have the nerve to ask her, or tease her about her hot boyfirend. Someone is bound to do it, eventually. I wonder if she will tape Ellen, then go to New York for the morning talk shows as well as Regis?

Anonymous said...

Jake's mother was 34 when he was born, and Reese will be 33 next week. The only thing maybe stopping the wedding is if Reese wants more children.

chica said...

I can't imagine her going to NY just to do Regis and Kelly, I bet Letterman and GMA will be added.

She will be on Ellen next Friday, that will taped ahead of time I would think unless she rushes back from NY to do that but it would make sense for her to tape it this week. I bet Leno, Ellen and Kelly will ask about the engagement rumors.

What a horrible tragedy that has happened to Natasha Richardson. My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family right now.

Jake has always talked about wanting children. Can't imagine that not being a topic between them sometime during the last 2 or more years.

What a horrible tragedy that has happened to Natasha Richardson. My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family right now.

The news on that seems very bleak, thoughts are with her and her family.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I find it odd that this story is making the usual crap blogs after a week! Is it because Star for some reason decided to post it online? Because that would explain all the google alerts. The left out one thing, the date of the Avon shoot: 2/26 but left in the location, Sony studios.

The rags sure are anxious for them to get married! I think that yes she did film the Avon commercial on 2/26 but that the ring that she removed may have been the gold band she has been wearing and they embelished it.

IMO if she wanted to keep it a secret, she would have never worn it to the shoot, unless she forgot to remove it. I wonder how long it will take for some comment from their camp.

Should be interesting on Leno tonight and other talk shows unless there will be a total ban on personal questions.

My heart goes out to Natasha Richardson's family. I can't imagine what they are going through right now, such a tragedy.

bobbyanna said...

Very sad news about Natasha Richardson. This must be so difficult for her family. The two boys are 12 and 13. Of course the paparrazzi stuck a camera in Vanessa Redgrave's face as she walked into the hospital. I don't think I could ever adapt to being famous. It has to be overwhelming at times.

IMHO, if anyone has the ...nerve to ask Reese a personal question, it will be Ellen. I think Reese would give her a truthful answer.

OONP, I think it may very well be as you describe. They saw the gold bands she's been wearing and they grew a huge diamond on it. :)

Anonymous said...

When Reese was talking about "Rendition" and she & Jake were trying their best to act like they barely knew who the other was (But there was talk and we knew they were together tho at the time there were still people who were saying it was all made up & they weren't together) I think Ellen did say to her Jake was cute and she said he was great. This being mentioned because he was also in the movie. Tho Ellen was being sneaky I think.
I would imagine if she didn't want to talk about him it would be mentioned to the pre-interview people on the Tonight show - etc.

Anonymous said...

I caught E!news (yeah, I know) and they said that reps for both jake and Reese said that the Star story was not true. The Star interns were a bit more "creative" and like some others has noted here, they lurk here!

A People or Us denial would have been better, but sinece they didn''t report it (E did) then this will do. Should have issued the denial before Leno tonight since it was taped.

PS: Thanks for all the sightings/tanslation fom France, I enjoy these moe than the pictures!

FluorescentLamp said...

It's just been confirmed. Such a sad, tragic, shocking death. Condolences to Liam Neeson and family. :(

I also saw the E!. All we have from E! is that E! is saying the reps said not. But we have not got the words of the rep or any statements to denial. In the past there have been stories of famous people and with the re-telling of who said what sometimes they are saying what they think they hear, but do not know. I do not know if they are engaged. I do not know are they married. For me anything could be possible. I see the pictures. The pictures tell me this is more then just a very close couple dating.

suvee said...

Oh, I just heard the terrible confirmation that Natasha Richardson has died. It is unbelievably tragic...... my heart breaks for her family.

What sad news FL. I'm still in shock at what happened. My condolences to her husband and family.

My heart goes out to Liam, her sons and her family. What a difficult and heartbreaking decision her family had to make today.

I met Natasha twice years ago in NY when she was promoting Parent Trap at one of the talk shows and then again after she won a Tony. She was lovely, funny and a wonderful actress.

RIP Natasha

I've always thought if Jake & Reese decide to marry (and there are couples who have been together for years and doing fine who have never married)they will just get married. There won't be any big annoucement that they are going to and when - they just will.

It's terrible. So sad for all her family and friends, especially those two boys! And how awful that photographers felt the need to harrass them in their pain.

bobbyanna said...

OK. I have a feeling Jake helped Reese plan her visit for the Leno show. She was hilarious. I saw Jake's sense of humor, especially when she was talking about fahrts.
And when she acted out the plot with those little figures smashing one another, it reminded me of Jake's skit on SNL. She was all giggly, too. Almost giddy.

UltraViolet said...

It was a very fun interview, bobbyanna. She was definitely giggly. Acting out the plot of the movie was very funny.

She looked great - great dress, great color, great legs. And of course, I did a ring check :)

What terrible news! N. Richardson was such a classy woman and actess. My sympathy goes out to the family and friends.

It really makes you think about how fragile life is....

Horrible news to wake up to, I was lucky enough to see Natasha on the London stage a few years ago, fabulous actress, lovely lady by all reports and a class act. Thoughts are with her family and her two lovely boys.

I didn't get a chance to watch Leno, thanks for the review. Hopefully it will turn up on youtube.

Anonymous said...

Reese is working very hard to promote M/A because Dreamworks/Paramount has a lot riding on it. They have to do well with it since they are first out the gate, with "Up" by Disney/Pixar coming close on their heels.

"Up" was just announced as the first animated movie ever to open this year's Cannes FF. It will open the summer season. Movie companies always try to make their money and get profitable beginning in the Spring.

Dreamworks wants to be first and it has a star-studded cast with Reese, Keifer Sutherland, Hugh Laurie, Seth Rogan, Stephen Colbert, Rene Zellweger, etc.

Reese was very clever to introduce the action figures the way she did on Leno.
