Past and present

Lots of fun pictures today. Check back later and we'll have some fun with Jake Gyllenhaal at Coachella. But I couldn't resist posting these - Jake and Reese stageside for Jenny Lewis:







(The last one is at the Fleet Foxes show.)

Too many pictures to sort through at this late hour - I don't know how Stephanie does it! But we'll have more later today.

Say goodnight, Donnie.

Replying to my own post, some people say that's Busy Phillips to Jake's right. It's hard for me to tell.

From E!:

"The trendy Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, turned into quite a couples event.

During Paul McCartney's two-hour set Friday night, Kate Bosworth and model boyfriend James Rousseau hit the bar in the V.I.P. tent and slow-danced the night away.

Kirsten Dunst, in a black dress, was also spotted dancing with a mystery man.

Saturday morning, Reese Witherspoon in a denim dress and fedora hat and a casually dressed Jake Gyllenhaal hiding under a baseball cap, walked into Twenty6 restaurant in the La Quinta resort for a late breakfast.

They paused to say hello to friends at an inside table, but left to eat subway sandwiches in their car. How glam!"

Wow, these pictures are swoon worthy! They look great and I hope they enjoyed themselves.

That does look like Busy Philips and didn't Jake date Jenny Lewis?

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!
Thank you, UV! I love the first picture!

I think that is Busy Phillips!

Love the pictures of them at the concert, especially the first one!

Seeing "Getty Images" was there and the other photographers there seems to be none of the yelling & stalking feeling that goes with the on-the-street ones.
Much more relaxed.
They both love music and the fact both of them can sing - if this was the 50's and early 60's - some record company would of gotten them to make a record. They use to do that with(whether they could sing or not)popular actors & actresses.
Of course even if that was the case now i'm sure they would of said No.
Tho we do have Reese on a soundtrack, but there's a reason for that.
You know when Jake starts to do interviews as in TV & Print he may be asked about Reese. She is the one who has had to deal with this the majority of the time.
Jake should be on Ellen's show again. That should be fun. Give him some Mad Libs to do too.

lawgoddess said...

Gorgeous pictures, thanks for posting them.

I find the first two very sexy and intimate.

bobbyanna said...

Awww! I love these. Thanks UV. I hate to sound so cliche', but they're... adorable! :)


Thanks, Anon, and sheba! Sounds like maybe they had a weekend getaway.

suvee said...

What a nice Sunday surprise...... thanks, UV.

I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I love seeing these pics, particularly the first 2. Like Annie pointed out, they don't have that nasty, stalking feel to them...... much easier to enjoy these lovely, intimate photos.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I woke up with a really bad sinus headache but these pictures sure put a big ole smile on my face!!

Love the first pictures, so intimate and yes bobbyanna adorable!

They look really relaxed and happy unlike those awful pics of them over a week ago.

I really love Jenny Lewis, she has an amazing voice and yes Jake did briefly date her!

IHJ has posted more pictures including the poolside pics, unfortunately Jake has his back turned to the camera sitting!:

extra said...

I adore these pictures! Glad that they enjoyed themselves this weekend. The added pictures on IHJ looks like Jake and Reese are walking with Jenny and a band member but I can't be sure. Too bad we can't see Jake in his bathing suit in those pool pics, hopefully others will surface!

I read a blurb today that Jenny Lewis was in Pleasentvile with Reese, what a small world!

Narcissa said...

Lovely pics!

agent_krycek said...

Being the same height as Reese, it's nice to know that if Jake ever decided to give me a hug I'd tuck in nicely under his chin =D

Lovely photos

paula said...

What lovely, sweet pictures! They are adorable, yes I said it, LOL!!!

The pictures brightened up my Sunday, thanks!!

gabbana said...

Wow, coming home late from work these pcitures made my day.
Great to see they enjoyed themselves.

I have a feeling that Jake introduced Reese to some music/bands she did not know before. (Just speculating - but I cannot remember her been seen at so many concerts when she was with Ryan..)

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for the "large lunch" photos from Wenn, Monica. I had to laugh, bcz they had a pic of Jake making his purchase at the Chili and Cheese fries booth, right next door to the booth selling the salads that Reese bought!

This sure has brightened up an overcast, gloomy Sunday. Huge thanks to the Incomparable Stephanie, too.

sheba said...

Yes, big thanks to Stephanie at IHJ for the pics and for your gems too UV, great post:D I must say, I am enjoying all these pictures as they don't seem intrusive or in their faces. Just mingling with the regular folkes. They seemed relaxed and in the moment. Great to see this side of Reese... see what love can do *deep sigh*.

Nicole said...

The pics are adorable,especially the first 2. Thanks for posting them.
They look both very happy and relaxed.

josie said...

What a sweet surprise, I love the first two pictures as well. They look so happy and relaxed, these are the type of pictures I like looking at, thanks for posting them and thnaks of course to IHJ!!!

fan said...

These are really nice pictures and Jake looks good. It seems they all had fun. The woman on Jake's right is Busy Phillipps (she's Matilda Ledger's godmother).

Oh great to see Jake and Reese enjoying Coachella. Love their affection!! :D

sag actor said...

I thought that M.I.A. retired??:


There were the usual celebrity sightings. Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon snuck in the back just as rapper M.I.A. hit the stage.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/04/19/killers.coachella.daytwo/

Looks like that had a blast, i'm jealous!

Anonymous said...

After all the warm fuzzy feelings about the weekend's pictures, TMZ finally manages to post a very unfortunate photo of Jake pissed off, at the concert.

I don't know what the situation was, what prompted that response, but Reese looks embarrassed and frankly, I wonder what's wrong with Jake.

They were in the VIP section, or backstage, or onstage at the festival, and photographers are bound to take pictures. Part of the cache' of the event is the celebrities that attend. This has always been the case, at least for the past three years or more.

I understand it is terrible to deal with stalking and harrassment outside a doctor's office or during private time with family and friends. But this was a pretty public venue.

I really don't understand what is going on with Jake. When Prince of Persia rolls out, it is going to be so much worse then it is now. He can't go around just being upset so much of the time. He didn't always act this way. I find it very troubling.

suvee said...

Monica, thanks so much for the Wenn link..... I'm pretty much done with Sunday chores/cooking/stuff, so I just now had a chance to look at them.

My favorite is #43, a wonderful portrait of a smitten woman. I just love this pic..... and it doesn't matter that Jake's face isn't visible. The expression on Reese's face as she looks back at him says all you need to know about their relationship IMO.

And I want to add my thanks to the chorus of praise for IHJ and Stephanie!

UltraViolet said...

Concerned anon @7:48, aren't you doing the same thing TMZ is? There are dozens of pictures of Jake from yesterday, and you're focusing on the one where he's doing something that makes it seem like he's pissed off.

Who the hell knows what's going on in the pic? He's not looking at the pap taking the photo. He doesn't look all that pissed off. Neither does Reese.

And if he is pissed off for one second, is it really such a big deal? I mean, sure, it's not the classiest thing to do. ANd it gives the TMZ losers raw material. But it doesn't look like it affected the rest of Jake's night or anyone's else's.

Back in a minute to gush over the many, many wonderful photos.

Anonymous said...

I've seen the picture and we don't know what caused the moment if it was what it seems to be. Didn't think Reese looked embarrassed.
But this would be typical TMZ. Of the many pictures taken (and J&R knew pictures would be taken)they could of used another one also. of which I have just seen U.V.'s comment.

In earlier days Jake was pretty much known as Kirsten's boyfriend and doubt if they got the type of yelling at and stalking and harrassing that he receives now.
It was after BBM when he got attention as Jake.
Then after Heath died and they would ask him about him and who knows what else they said maybe his opinion started to change.

He's just being a human being and even when it gets "more" and we do agree it will I'm sure there will be good days and bad days.

You see pictures of Brad &
Angelina and they will keep walking and will not smile. They've also had bodyguards who have been known to hit paps.
Brad has been very strong in his comments about them.
Oh, and don't forget the times that Reese has gone toward them & reacted to them in a not happy tone.
They are happy to be together and pap moments are just a minor glitch.
Annie

chica said...

Much ado about nothing IMO. So what if he flipoed them the bird, he isn't the only celebrity to do so.

And yes they were aware of the photographers at the concert but maybe at that moment he got tired of them flashing away.

Still enjoying the pictures!

Monica said...

I agree with Annie, UV and chica! :D

he isn't the only celebrity to do so.Heath Ledger!
He always did that and never ceased to be an incredible human being.

bobbyanna said...

I don't think it is a "sign" of some big change in Jake. I think from time to time he gets disgusted with them. And rightly so. Sorry, Anon. But I just read about paparrazzi in HELICOPTERS disrupting a three year old's birthday party, and police had to be called. I just read about paparrazzi jumping out and startling a horse so badly the rider fell, had to be taken to hospital, and could have seriously injured herself.

We've seen them swarm little kids and cause traffic accidents. We've seen thm follow children and their parents to school, to the mall, to the playground, to the grocery, to the doctor. We've heard them shouting, screaming, cackling irrationally, etc. so Jake flipped some one the finger. BFD. He and Reese are more then patient, cooperative, and polite 95% of the time. That's 95% better then I would be. I just don't think it was a big deal at all. I'd bet someone did something to deserve that kind of reaction.

UltraViolet said...

Since I have now also repeated the TMZ/anon 7:48 mistake of focusing on the negative, let me just say hello to everyone. What a fun surprise all of this was.

I saw a Jake sighting in Palm Springs early yesterday and wondered if he was going to Coachella. When I got back last night, the internet had exploded!

There are so many pictures, it's overwhelming. My festival days are over, but I do remember what fun it was to wander about and listen to all the bands. I'm sure it's even better from the VIP tent!

Jut to catch up on some of the fun:

Being the same height as Reese, it's nice to know that if Jake ever decided to give me a hug I'd tuck in nicely under his chinHe's getting in some good practice for when he finally meets you, Agent K!

have a feeling that Jake introduced Reese to some music/bands she did not know before.I think that's true, gabbana. Sadly, she has returned the favor by introducing him to country music. (Ducks from the CM fans...)

they had a pic of Jake making his purchase at the Chili and Cheese fries booth, right next door to the booth selling the salads that Reese bought!Hee, Bobbyanna. She did at least have that big coconut drink or whatever that was. Some fun in there, I hope.

see what love can do *deep sigh*.You said it, sheba! It really is fun to see this side of Reese.

If only that poolside photographer had gotten a different side of Jake...

Suvee, I'm not sure which picture you mean...

suvee said...

UV, the picture I'm referring to on the Wenn site is on the 11th row, third picture from the left, #43.

As for the TMZ photo......I agree with everyone, it's no big deal. To be honest, Jake is generally so well mannered and polite, I actually get a little thrill seeing him slip out of his "nice" mode. It only makes me like him more. Flipping someone off is hardly a crime against humanity....most of us have done it too. I'd be more worried about him if he never allowed himself to occasionally "lose it".

UltraViolet said...

Added a photo that someone sent me of the hug. But Jake has a slightly different and cute expression on his face and so does Reese.

Enjoy. And thanks, anonymous :)

UltraViolet said...

Finally, before I go to sleep, a completely pointless video of Jake and Reese getting their "large lunch." Quick, blurry and skippable. But there you have it!

Bette said...

I love these, and how he's holding her close like that. Specially the ones where her back is resting against his chest, and he's got his hands resting near her stomach. I know there is nothing at all to it, but I have noticed Reese has put on some weight. Wishful thinking on my part, but I want to see Jake become a daddy soon. I'd love it if she was pregnant.

verdeblusm said...

Great,great surprise! Thank you UV you light up this day! I love Jake's glance in the first one.
When a picture says it all about a man...
...TMZ dont says how paps can be coarse and offensive in trying to get a reaction out of a celebrity.

shondra said...

Catching up on all the wonderful pictures of Jake and Reese, sigh. I love the first picture of them. It looks like they had a great weekend. I have no problem with Jake giving the finger, IMO he has been cordial enough with the paps so this is nothing.

Reese has had a bit of a tummy since she gave birth to Deacon and as anon. has said she is due to film a movie soon either starting the end of this month or late summer.

pitnb said...

Here is a picture of J&R at the Jenny Lewis concert. It's not posted on Getty or IHJ so it may be a fan pic. Third picture down, it's really sweet:

Feeling up her tush! I love this blog, you and FL find the best tidbits/videos/blog sightings, it's the one stop resource place for me!!! Lucky woman, too bad she didn't grab his tush as well.

PS: I guess someone already pointed out that

One more tawdry headline and then I'll try to get some work done!

It cracks me up the way they make it seem as if Reese wore the bikini AT the concert.

It's the Daily Mail, I'm just surprised they didn't call her fat, or just generally insult her body - it's their usual way.

Hee - I was surprised, too, Agent K.

And Reese, come on, you're blocking the view!

FluorescentLamp said...

Blocking the view of who? Jenny Lewis' guitarist? ;-)

UltraViolet said...

Hee! Okay, she's forgiven.

extra said...

There are about 10 photos on popugar of J&R poolside, 8 have Jake in them (I think) but his back is to the camera!!! The other 3 pics he isn't visible, just that chick and the guy from Jenny's band. The pics were probably posted in reverse, anyway you would think there was at least on picture of him so we can see his bathing suit!!

Love the ass grabbing video (sorry) although it looks more like a caress.

It was a cute/sexy cop/feel, not crude IMO. I want to see pictures of Jake in his swim trunks!!!!

FluorescentLamp said...

That story is utter bullshit. Unless Jake was getting into it with Busy Phillips' husband, who was behind him. Which I doubt. They were at the side of the stage. This article makes it sound like Jake was out in the crowd.

I read a lot of tweets from people who were standing right along side of Jake and Reese at Jenny Lewis. Not one of them mentioned this. And I think something like this would have definitely been tweet-worthy.

Such BS.

desert noise said...

I thought so, thanks FL.

UltraViolet said...

Hmm - does this sound like a man involved in fisticuffs?

The magnificent and un-upstageable Jenny Lewis nearly got upstaged during her fantastic Saturday night Coachella performance. As Jenny belted out a brilliant acoustic version of Rilo Kiley's Silver Lining, I noticed a seatbelted pair watching in awe from the side of the stage. The cuddling couple turned out to be Jenny's ex, Jake Gyllenhaal, wrapped around current gf, Reese Witherspoon. They held their embrace during Jenny's entire set. Seriously, it was like they were trying to keep warm during a blizzard - except that we were in the dessert and it was womb-like conditions that night.

Reese mouthed the words to most of Jenny's songs while Jake looked on like a cute little frog.
Forg? Really? Hee.

Nicole said...

Thanks for all the infos and tidbits. Here something from PeopleTalk about hot! Reese Witherspoon and beau Jake Gyllenhaal spent a steamy weekend in the desert looking cozy and attending the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.

Temperatures reached the 90s while the Hollywood couple spent time at the La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, Calif. They were spotted having breakfast at Twenty 6 restaurant at the hotel and lounging by the pool in the afternoon.

"Reese looked cute in a hat and bikini," says an eyewitness. "She was in a great mood and kept chatting with Jake between sips of a pina colada."

Later in the evening at the music festival, the lovebirds snuggled during a set by Jenny Lewis.

Earlier in the week, Witherspoon was spotted preparing for an upcoming movie role by practicing softball and working out at Burn 60 in Brentwood.

lawgoddess said...

I thought the video of the backside patting was cute, but I liked the beginning of the video where he had his arm around her, all protective and affectionate. (Melts).

shondra said...

I was going to say the same thing Lawgodess, as cute as the butt patting was, I like the way he is holding her in the begginning of the video. Like you said, very protective and loving.

suvee said...

That butt pat video was pretty cute. Thanks, UV!

I love how Reese doesn't even break stride or bat an eyelash..... makes me think she's quite used to these little affectionate touches from Jake. :)

chica said...

Yeah suvee, she didn't even flinch, I love it!!

Short video of Jake yesterday, it's says it's at a parking garage in Bedford, he has been papped there before. The medical building?

He is not pleased

paula said...

It looked more like he was about to grab one of her cheeks, but changed his mind and gave her a pat instead!!!

That story about Jake almost starting a fight sounds like BS.

extra said...

More proof that Jake starting a fight was bullshit:

"Jenny Lewis was the perfect level of drunk to put on the best show I've ever seen her do. And her boyfriend was sober enough to do a great Elvis Costello impression. The little girls behind me were swooning for him. I say this for the one little girl who might happen upon this post. That's how I roll. I alienate my fans by tailoring shit to the people who probably won't ever come here. You could see Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon cuddling watching the show, too"


http://bumperstickerbuddhas.blogspot.com/2009/04/i-mean-like-with-costumes-and-multiples.html

If anything like that had happened, i think that it would be mentioned on this blog.

bobbyanna said...

Looked at the video, he seemed pretty nonchalant, not particularly upset.

There was no fight. It's possible some drunk shouted something unkind to Jennie and Jake "expressed his opinion."
One thing about Twitter and blogs, etc. It's harder to lie. :)

(Paps deny bothering Madonna's horse...and they have pictures and video to prove it...! L.O.L!)

Another gloomy rainy chilly sodden day in the Midwest. Ugh.

get real said...

The Jake getting into a fight story really does sound like bullshit.

Love seeing Jake and Reese around the festival and enjoying themselves. :) I love music and love that Jake has good taste imo because he has gone to a lot of shows in the past few years. I am glad he and Reese are going to these shows together.

extra said...

From Gyllenspoon fan Bill Zwecker:


Jake Gyllenhaal apparently had the mistaken idea that he could happily -- and anonymously -- share a weekend music festival with his lady love Reese Witherspoon in relative obscurity.

A source who hung out with the couple at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., Saturday says, ''For some reason, Jake must have thought wearing a hoodie would be enough of a disguise ... but when you're with Reese Witherspoon and a bit of an entourage, you're bound to attract attention -- even in that mob.''

Gyllenhaal tried to hide under a hoodie Saturday at the Coachella festival, where his appearance with Witherspoon drew plenty of attention.


Gyllenhaal has never liked the constant attention his relationship with Witherspoon has drawn. In fact, the continual glare of the paparazzi supposedly contributed to the duo ''taking a break'' less than a year after they initially began dating in March 2007, five months after the Oscar winner's divorce from ex-husband Ryan Phillippe became final.

When they did get back together last spring, ''Jake realized he was stuck with the paparazzi, but that doesn't mean he'll ever truly accept it,'' said a longtime friend of the actor's family Monday.

At Coachella, Gyllenhaal reportedly complained about the shutterbugs snapping his picture all during Jenny Lewis' performance Saturday night. ''It got so that even Reese seemed a bit peeved that Jake just couldn't ignore them,'' said the source.

''Just don't pay any attention [to them],'' Witherspoon reportedly told her honey. ''Forget them and enjoy the music.''

www.suntimes.com

Just a couple of comments: Looking at the IHJ gallery going back to when he was with Kiki, he is used to the paps trailing him all the time. I guess he is older now and and didn't mind it then but does now. Both Jake and Reese seemed more annoyed lately. Also I thought the "reports" of them taking a break in 2007 was because Reese thought that things were going to fast!

So they got back together last spring? I think he meant the summer of 2007, I don't recall a break last spring.

Again, no reports of a near fight, the finger might have been for the paps if this report is true. Zwecker is right: neither he nor Reese van just blend in with the crowd.

FluorescentLamp said...

I guess he is older now and and didn't mind it then but does now.>

I think something has changed in the pap-world between then (with Kiki) and now (with Reese). They're much more aggressive, there are more of them swarming around one target, their shouting at their target seems to have gone to another level of tastlessness. Living with the paps is one thing. Having to listen to a constant barrage of insults and personal questions from a complete stranger all to get a reaction out of the subject is a whole 'nother thing. I think they both do the best they can under the circumstances.

UltraViolet said...

I definitely agree that the pap situation today is totally different from when Jake first started out and was dating Kirsten. Reese is also much more famous now than Kirsten was then. Jake is more famous than he was. There are a lot of differences.

Plus, it's many years later. It has to start to wear on you after a while.

That said, Zwecker's column seems like a piece of fiction. I like that he seems to be a fan of Jake and Reese, but he has definitely gotten things wrong before.

UltraViolet said...

Here's a video of someoen's Coachella experience. There is a very long shot of Jake dancing at the side of the stage at about 5:19. I'm talking very long, people. Click only if you want to see Jake's dim silhouette bopping to the music.

It's kind of fun :)

Ignore the caption about Reese being in a bikini.

I'm shocked that there is so little video footage and so few non-pap Jake or J/R pics. We got more from ACL a few years back!

Anonymous said...

new pics up of jake leaving amedical center again on ihj looks like theres a security guard walking with himj this time after the last time when that pap was harassing him i guess he felt or the center felt he needed them also he parkwed in the garage and not in the alley where he usually would park

Thanks UV for that link! You can tell it's him. I didn't get the bikini reference, the comments were in spanish. Are they saying she was wearing a bikini? Couldn't be, that is from the Jenny Lewis concert and there are no pics of her wearing her bikini there or any blog accounts unless they saw her at another concert.

UltraViolet said...

OONP, if you read the description, the vidder says he was just trying to play with people's minds. He must have read somewhere that Reese wore a bikini at the festival and thought he'd be clever.

Have just seen a comment about comments from some on a Dancing With The Stars site. (I watch, didn't last night, so am catching up.)
Some didn't think one couple who Are going with each other should be as physical as they have been.
quote:
"C'mon people, be honest. The only reason everyone is so critical of Chuck and Julianne is because you are aware they are a real life couple and if no one knew or it wasn't public you would all be calling it "a connection" or "chemistry" like with Gilles and Cheryl...it seems we don't want people with real affection for each other to show it but we find it "spicy" or "hot" when total strangers (a lot married to other people) turn on the steam???"

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Thanks UV, I viewed the video at work and didn't have time to translate! And you are right, there were more fan videos of Jake at ACL.

I think the moment was so intimate that it make some people uncomfortable, anon. Especially the ones who can't deal with the implications!
