It's a special day!

Singer/Actress, Mandy Moore

Actor, Charlie Hunnam

Musician and former Stay Cat, Brian Setzer

Actor, Omar Sharif

Musician and former Ratt, Warren DeMartini

American Activist, Claire Booth Luce


You're probably asking yourself what all these people have in common. Well I'll tell you. They were all fortunate enough to share a birthday with my friend and co-conspirator, UltraViolet.

Let's see what Jake was doing on various April 10ths.

In 2005, while still filming Jarhead, Jake took a meeting and had lunch at The Ivy.

And in 2007, Jake was spotted running in the Hills.

Since Jake only allows himself to papped every two years on April 10th, I fully expect a glut of pictures sometime today, which I will happily add to this post. Right here.



joyeux anniversaire, mademoiselle

Well, Happy Birthday, UV.

I hope you have a terrific day, and that Jake and Reese go in the studio and do a sexy black and white photoshoot just for you.:)

Many happy returns, and thanks for the pleasure you and FL bring into the lives of Jake fans.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, how you shame me! Thank you for the wonderful surprise.

I was online and everything, and didn't see you. Sneaky!

Interesting group of folks. I'm a little disturbed by the Ratt guy, though :)

Thanks for this and so much more, FL.

And thanks for the nice wishes, LGB! I'll take Jake or Jake and Reese in a sexy photoshoot.

Or, you know, walking and talking and holding coffee/hands!

And yo'ure welcome :)

A very happy birthday UV. Hope you are surrounded by love, laughter and friends on your special day.

Geez, what ever would make you think that? I don't think I've ever noticed that before. ;-)

agent_krycek said...

Charlie was soooo pretty on Queer as Folk (even if I was a Aidan Gillen girl myself - Stuart, yummy bad boy) But I have never noticed the strong Heath resemblance before

chica said...

Wow, Charlie really does resemble Heath at that link FL.

Joseph Gordon Levitt also resembles Heath too.

Anonymous said...

I agree about Joseph Gordon Levitt and a younger Heath. They look like they could have been twin brothers.
I've sometimes seen something in a younger Jason Lewis and Aaron Eckhart that reminded me of Heath, too. My problem is they "remind" me.

josie said...

Hi Rosa! I'm so glad you stopped by to wish UV a happy birthday and that you are Ok.

I never realized how much Charlie looked like Heath.

office of nancy pelosi said...

The resemblence to Heath is amazing, I never noticed it before.

I hope you enjoyed your birthday UV!

sass said...

Happy belated birthday you darling girl...you and FL make my days sososo much better:)
Happy Easter and belated Passover to all who celebrate. My God Charlie Hunnam looks like our sweetheart Heath....scary.
I've never seen him until today...now I'm toast...*THUD*

I've enjoying Milk this week... it's only one of two movies I bought...not made by Jake...since Brokeback Mountain. I love Sean and Gus Van Sant for making parts of Harvey known to me.
I cried when Harvey was killed but I didn't know him personally...God I didn't know I was so busy back then...but then everyone who is dead shows up in a movie or who dies now at my age brings back memories.

I don't really have the energy to keep up with Jake and his pretty Reese...I wish did, but I come here once in a while and make the rounds.
Sooooooooooooooo, I have to have another f*cking Mammogram Tuesday...my original Oncologists felt something..another lump? Friday...tell ya what... if this one is another actual cancer I'm taking these boobies off ASAP! bad boob 1 and 2...out the door.

This is the end of my BC info, I have another group of like dxed folks I talk it out with, though I love you all too much to leave you out totally...:lol:lol...just kidding.
Send up prayers please Tuesday pm while I get squeezzzed, poked and shoved around in the boob machine...ugh:)

Love and kisses to all my fellow babblers,
Mina

Better evening that, we never say here. Good auguries for your new year! And special gratefulness for this one nice place! Leonor.

bobbyanna said...

Great to hear from you, sass! Will be sending all positive thoughts your way.

chica said...

((((Sass)))))I'm so glad you stopped by, we were wondering if everything was Ok.

Good luck with the mammogram on Tuesday and I will be sending a prayer up. I hope all goes well, please keep us updated.

I loved Milk as well, Penn was amazing. There is a documentary on Harvey Milk called the life and Times of Harvey Milk. I don't know if you saw that but it's an excellent documentary on Milk.

Thanks for the holiday wishes. It's been a bit quiet on the Jake front, I hope we get solid news soon on either Brother and Nailed.

Take care.

Easter Sunday pictures of Reese, no Jake, working out with a friend.

Anonymous said...

Reese does have a movie to make before too long so imagine there are things to do, places to go, people to see.

And tho it seems like forever in a little over 3 months Comic-Con and we are sure there will be POP information.
And, eventually, there should be news on Nailed & Brothers and then he'll be all over the place.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Hi Sass!! So glad you stopped by. I will be thinking of you on Tuesday,please let us know how everything turns out.

Reese will be busy getting ready for her new movie where she plays a softball player, I suspect we will see a lot of pics of her working out and practicing softball until filming.

She also moved the offices of her production Co. and I would assume there are things that need to be taken care of there as well as a few rumored projects at that end.

Hopefully we will get release dates of Brothers and Nailed so Jake can do some promotion.

(((Sass))) am thinking of you and sending lots of good and healing vibes. Please keep us updated, we love to hear from you!

Hope everyone is having a decent Monday.

Hello, babblers!

Sass, thanks for bringing us some news. I was thinking of you one of those days.
I know what you're going, because my mother passed the same as you.
My mother had cancer in both breasts and unfortunately it was necessary to remove both breasts.

My prayers are for you.

Thanks, anon. Jake is very sexy with spandexx.

sheba baby said...

Lots of hugs and prayers your way sass, I'll be thinking about you.

Jake in spandex is always good, thanks anon!

west sunset said...

That place Jake is coming from with the gates looks familiar. I'm positive that's outside Reese's gated community.

sheba baby said...

The caption on the pics say Santa Monica, Reese lives in Brentwood.

I suspect that most of the gated communities in L.A. look alike.

agent_krycek said...

Good to hear from you Sass, you're in my thoughts

Anonymous said...

I think west sunset is right, everything about the pics looks the same, even the bricks and and the fire lane sign are in the same place.

bobbyanna said...

I wonder when Jake will have to start preparing for Damn Yankees? Jim Carrey has The Three Stooges going on right now,(!) and another project listed on imdb after that, I think. Jake's enjoying some well earned down time right now. Calm before the storm. Once Brothers comes out, and the PR starts for PoP he'll have no peace at all.

gabbana said...

Good thoughts and many hugs for you, Sass. I hope everything will be good on tuesday.

Stephanie has posted the biking pictures
Jake and Austing biking

Jake looks extremly sexy and Austin is also a hottie. Love their matching shirts and helmets.

Anonymous said...

Sorry I don't see anything in Austin and it gets on my nerves when they refer to him as Jakes BFF, when everyone knows that is Chris. Oh and the only similarity to the shirts are the stripes down the arm, Jakes also has one on the top of the arm so they are not matching.

gabbana said...

"I wonder when Jake will have to start preparing for Damn Yankees"

I thought that maybe the Namath film will be starting first? I am a bit puzzled that Jake is only attached to projects which don´t have a director (except D. Liman) nor a finished script yet.

It will be also interesting to see when they will start a little promotion for "Brothers". And I have read somewhere that "Nailed" could be shown in Cannes. (??)

Monica said...

Brothers/IMDB
Such a good movie...

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..

bobbyanna said...

I would not be surprised one single bit if Brothers screens in Toronto in Spetember. It's just a "feeling" I have. :)

I don't think they have a script for the Joe Namath movie or for that Moon project. Which is fine with me. I would love to see Jake do some other stuff.

Altho, in the past two months, I've watched The Good Girl, October Sky, Rendition, and Zodiac on cable, and have been so impressed, and reminded about what incredible choices he makes. These movies are excellent and they really hold up well over time.

josie said...

Sending up a pray for you Sass. I will be thinking about you. Thanks so much for stopping by here and letting us know.

Love, Jake in spandex!! He looks great, thanks for the link gabanna.

Jake has 3 projects that are up in the air as you pointed out:UMP, Yankees and the Namath movie and no firm release date for either Nailed and Brothers.

Gabbanna, both Nailed and Brothers were rumored to open and Cannes, then heard thatBrothers wouldn't.

Thanks for the link to the Brothers review monica, with reviews like that, it's a puzzle that we aren't getting more buzz.

suvee said...

So glad to hear from you, sass! Rest assured that I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Two wonderful sights today: Jake in spandex and Tom Seaver throwing the ceremonial pitch to Mike Piazza at the new Mets Stadium!

First of all, Happy Belated Birthday to our lovely UV.

Thanks for everybody who sent prayers to Italy, my hometown is not too far from L'Aquila actually even though far enough to be safe.
I hope that all the other Italian Blabbers are good as well.

Finally, yay for Jake in Spandex and for Jake, anyway.

Love to you all.

Someting in People


"Jake Gyllenhaal, enjoying a late lunch with a guy pal on the patio at Gjelina restaurant on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, Calif. The actor sipped water with lime during his quiet meal of thin-crust pizza. "It seemed like a really relaxed lunch," says an observer, noting that even ultra-trendy patrons of the hip local spot were rubbernecking for a peek at the actor. "They lingered for a while."

office of nancy pelosi said...

Thanks for the Brothers link monica, I too hope that we will get a firm date for the film opening.

And thanks for the People link Nicole, he has been spotted in Venice quite a lot, the last time was in February (I think ) with Reese and some friends.

ex said...

It's tax day!! (As if anyone needed a reminder!) I did mine back in February because I got a refund. So all you last minute tax filers, you have until midnight!!

Thanks for the Brothers info Monica and the People link Nicole!

extra said...

Whoops, that was me.

Anonymous said...

It's one thing to read an item saying he was spotted, and another for the photographers to stalk him and harrass him every day. He tries to avoid them as much as possible, I guess, maybe that's why he's going to different places more. Those people sound deranged!

office of nancy pelosi said...

I said it before, I prefer sigthings to actual pics lately. Even though I loved the recent Europe pics of J&R , I actually enjoyed reading the blog spottings of them more along with the occasional blog spottings of them in L.A. like Ojai.

It was obvious that when they returned they were not amused with the paps. Being papped alone or with friends is a lot less annoying. He has been spotted in Venice before and in that area , not sure if it was the same place, but I would assume that Venice has less paps swarming around than other parts of L.A.

Tax day and I'm afraid i'm one of those that wait until the last minute, well with my State anyway. I'm off to mail that off on my break.

paps are scum said...

Jake complains to cops in S. Monica that the paps are harrassing him, TMZ claims that it is the second time in two weeks he flagged cop down. I wonder if the first time was hwen he was at the Medical building with those two jackasses.

Anonymous said...

Feel guilty for going to look at that website with those asshole paps taunting and hunting Jake. I hope an international law comes out soon to outlaw this kind of stalkerish behaviour.

I agree detailed blog sightings without pictures are much better and you can make up your own mind whether to believe the sightings or not. I fear for him sometimes.

bobbyanna said...

I feel just awful that Jake and Reese are going thru something like this, but I think maybe it's an unusual situation going on.

Both of them are used to a certain amount of attention. They've handled it fine in the past. Something must have got out of hand this time.

Maybe it's those two or three guys who were acting all deranged when he came out of the doctor's office the other day who are harrassing him and following him. It also explains why they have been doing more things apart the past three weeks.

Whatever it is, I hope things settle down soon and he can relax again.

sheba baby said...

The last time we saw J&R out together was when they went on that double date with Paltrow and her husband on around 4/7 about 8 days ago. They are definately more annoyed than usual with the paps, Jake has looked grumpy for the most part. Reese seemed ok in the recent pics but that was probably due to the fact that she was practicing softball and wasn't really paying attention to them.

The paps last week were really nasty.

paps are still scum said...

It seems that TMZ is full of shit, no surprise. According to the caption on IHJ, Jake was pulled over and given a warning, didn't say what for:

http://iheartjake.suddenlaunch.com/index.cgi?board=Pictures&action=display&num=1239743284

Speeding? Running a red light? Yacking on the cell phone?

bobbyanna said...

Whoa! That puts a whole different spin on things. X17 is the worst, IMO, but TMZ, Splash,etc. They all lie. TMZ said Jake "kicked" their camera man and then later spit at him when Jake was on jury duty, but even their own video showed them to be liars.

UltraViolet said...

I don't think we have any idea if Jake flagged them down or if the cop pulled him over. Either way, he isn't in a good mood.

Maybe we'll get some happy pics tomorrow.

i also think jake an reese have been doing things separately to avoid being photographed plus reese has been busy training for her next film so she probably busy during the day also

sag actor said...

Nice has been floating around for awhile, I'm glad that a studio has finally picked it up and that Reese is attached to it. I hope that they keep the plot dark and edgy, I miss her in those types of roles.

sheba baby said...

Nice is the type of film Reese used to do in the beginning of her career. Nothing against the rom-coms but I'm glad she is mixing it up again.

Speaking of roles, I'm impressed with Reese's softball workouts for her upcoming movie where she plays a softball player. She's been out all week practicing and going to the gym.I'm sure Jake is giving her a few tips as well!

From J. Jared:

I hope the pics from the luncheon surface today, I want to see a happy/smiley Jake. He has been looking a bit grumpy as of late, not that I blame him.

paula said...

Thanks for the link Jared, she sure is workong out hard! Can't make out if she is wearing a Boston Red sox cap or a Brentwood cap,she has worn both and I get mixed up.

Nice sounds like a dark comedy, like Nailed which I am patiently waiting for a release date.

Hope to see some pics of Jake from the charity luncheon!

FluorescentLamp said...

It's definitely not a Red Sox cap/visor. It looks more like the Brentwood "B", which makes sense.

Anonymous said...

It's a UCLA Bruins hat.

Anonymous said...

Maybe they aren't married, but they sure act married. They seem to be taking turns working. When Jake shot Nailed, Reese was on set with him a lot, and she was traveling back and forth for him to Morocco and London all thru PoP. Now she is prepping, and signing up for movies, while he has his down time.

Anonymous said...

Maybe they aren't married, but they sure act married.I've been thinking that for a while now.

paula said...

Thanks Anon. That makes sense since according to the captions on the pictures, she was working out at UCLA.

PS: Don't forget she visited the set of Brothers as well and during a break in filming on Brothers, he and her kids visited her while she was filming 4C. I heard that the baseball movie will start filming in late summer. He is on a break now unless he has something coming up that we have'nt heard about yet.
