It's a Go!


Anne Hathaway stopped by The View this morning to chat about Shakespeare in the Park among other things. If you want to get right to the good stuff, scroll to the 6:05 mark where she says that yes, she and Jake will be working on an upcoming movie together, which one presumes is the Lawyers, Drugs and Money...Lovers and Other Strangers...Love is the Drug...whatever it's called movie. Continue watching/listening to hear Joy Behar make the grandaddy of all faux pas. Way to go, Joy, to stay current with pop culture.





I mean...really?????

Great news, FL!
The project is very interesting and I think will be a great movie for Jake and Anne!

Jake=Joaquin? So funny!hahahahaha

UltraViolet said...

Hee - the title and the picture crack me up every time I look.

Thanks for the great post, FL, especially since I know you aren't exactly looking forward to this flick.

Joy, Joy, Joy - someone needs to give that woman an eye exam.

I love how Anne looks bewildered when she mentions Jake weirdness.

The only Jake Weirdness is on Kendra's blog, Joy :)

get real said...

LOLOL, I was just watching today's View on DVR and saw Anne talking about the movie with Jake and came here to announce the news!

Joy, come on!

And YAY for Anne and Jake!!!!

cmbalderston holy shit just walked past starbucks in NW and saw reese witherspoon and jake gyllenhaal enjoying coffee in the window!!!!!! 3 minutes ago from TwitterBerry

Very funny post FL that first pic made me LOL.

And another one,

DJEyeV "dumb blonde" moment of the day: taking a second too long to realize that offering jake gyllenhaal a 10% discount at barnes & noble is silly

chica said...

LOL at that picture, I love it!!!

And yay for the confirmation from Annie. I think the Jake confusion maybe related to Reese: Jake is dating her and she was in WTL with Phoenix, either that or she needs to check her eyes!!

When twitters comes in clumps like that it usually is accurate.

Kayla said...

Ngl, way before my love for Jake I would sometimes get them mixed up - Ideky.

But YAY. I oddly love Hathaway and Jake together in Brokeback, she was great. :)

suvee said...

Oh, Joy..... how embarrassing! But I suppose it could have been worse. She could have confused Jake for M. Ahmadinejad. :)

A big shout out to agent k from the previous post. Loved your guesses as to what "10 days and counting" could mean. I got a good chuckle out of it!

Just thinking about Reese's "Pharma" project...... I know her parents are a doctor and a nurse, and I thought that both Jake's maternal grandparents were doctors. Maybe the subject matter just has an appeal to both of them based on family involvement.

Oh my God, that pictures is hilarious! BB is a movie that I didn't like when it first came out but viewing it several time since, it's funny as hell!

Love the view/Annie interview and thrilled that this movie looks like it a go!

Mixing Jake with Joaquin? That's a first, too funny.

bobbyanna said...

Great post! Love the BB pic and I thought The View was hilarious. Between "biopic" and Joaquin, poor Annie was just tryin to get thru it! LOL! I get the impression she's really enthused about working with Jake. She's a sweetheart. How cool that she is doing Shakespeare in the Park!

sheba baby said...

I almost spit my coffee out all over my computer, that picture, ha, ha!! I love Annie and I'm really excited to hear that she will be working with Jake again, just not too sure about the script.

Iknew that about Reese's parents but not about Jake's Grandparents, interesting, thanks Suvee.

Another J&R sighting from yesterday.

JoshHull Hollywood comes to Woodley Park: the luminous #ReeseWitherspoon & Jake G. were just chillin' at Natl Zoo Sbux.
about 15 hours ago from Tweetie

josie said...

Poor Annie!!!Jake/Joaquin??? The look on her face, priceless.

Looking forward to seeing her and Jake together again. I would love to see her on stage, don't know about her doing Garland though. I can see some resemblance and she can sng bit she is a bit too tall, Judy was tiny!

Funny that Jake and Reese are doing similar movies althogh Reese's sounds like it will be awhle before it hits the screen.

It's a good bet that Jake is in DC!

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!

spotted: jake gyllenhaal and owen wilson in georgetown. we will soon find out if my sis D (helpful, right?) was able to track them down xoxo

Why aren't the comments section showing up on IE, I have to go to the actual post itself before I can see the comments?.

Monica said...

I don't know what is happening, but the same is happening with me, anon 9:35.

Anonymous said...

We'll get pictures soon enough. It's Washington, D.C. after all! :)

FluorescentLamp said...

Anon and Monica, it's most likely a Blogger issue and nothing to do with this particular blog. I don't use IE so I have no problem seeing the comments. However, this morning when I logged into the comments page of the blog and then backed out to the main post, it was missing. I refreshed a few times and it came back. Weirdness.

FluorescentLamp said...

I just opened in IE and it seems fine.

Is anyone else still having probs?

sag actor said...

So the rumor pretty much has been confirmed, should be interesting.
I run hot and cold regarding Hathaway, loved her in BBM and Rachel gets married.

I'm not having any problems commenting FL.

Lemon said...

God I hate that show, those women are so daft (except Whoopi who I love). Nice to hear that this project is 'a go'. I did enjoy Jake and Anne in BM. They had good chemistry, so I'm very hopeful =]

Reese's Pharma project sounds pretty interesting, especially since its on her own production company. She seems to be making a return to darker films.

Why aren't the comments section showing up on IE
Its a sign to ditch the crapfest that is IE. Come to the Firefox side.

agent_krycek said...

Nice to hear that project is a go, I quite like Anne, still convinced she was a Deer in an earlier life though. Looks like Jakes in Washington then with Reese, obviously fled the country to get away from my rubbish stalking attempts :D

UltraViolet said...

Afunny account from a DCer:

There are some photos and a cute and funny Paul Rudd encounter.

The city is apparently filled with other celebrities, but I have yet to see them. Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon and Jack Nicholson also co-star, but were absent from the filming in Adams Morgan yesterday. However, when I stopped for an iced tea at my local Starbucks in Woodley Park, the barista gushed to me that Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon had patronized the establishment only 5 minutes prior to my arrival. I had a mini conniption at the register. So who knows, perhaps I'll have another sighting in the near future.

Monica said...

Lucky girl.
Paul Rudd is sexy!

Anonymous said...

Another couple sightings today from twitter, also "Love and Other Drugs" has been added to Jakes IMDB page but only as rumoured as is Anne's?.

Monica said...

is dining in the same restaurant as Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhal. Kobi in DC. No joke.
4 minutes ago from TwitterBerry

UltraViolet said...

All of these tweets and sightings make me re-annoyed that they aren't filming Reese's movie in Boston. But if Jake makes one of his movies here, I'll forget my pique.

A couple of amusing tidbits:

Apparently, the hot rumorwas that Jake and Reese would be attending the Radio&TV Correspondents dinner tonight. Alas, the biggest Hollywood celeb there was Angelina Jolie's brother.

A very detailed description of dinner at the Four Seasons,with a Jake & Reeese spotting thrown in for good measure.

$102 shorter but with a free glass of wine in my future, I bounded out of the restaurant and headed toward three (!) hours of ballet. In the lobby, I saw a young woman who looked like Reese Witherspoon holding hands with a guy who looked like Jake Gyllenhaal. The goofy grin of a hotel bellhop bragging about the photo he took confirmed it. They might get free fries and lobster corn dogs, but I doubt free wines from general managers are in their futures.

extra said...

I am so glad this movie is a go! Looking forward to Anne and Jake teaming up again. That interview is too funny, don't know how anyone can mix up Jake and Joaquin!!

I remember reading about them scouting for this movie in Boston UV, damn tax incentives!

Love all the twitters and updates and the Four Seasons account is so cute.

FluorescentLamp said...

At the end of the day I don't think it had anything to do with tax incentives. I recently read an article about the film and James L. Brooks was quoted as saying he's in love with Washington, D.C.

Wonder if he feels the same way about Philly, where the bulk of filming will be done.

agent_krycek said...

BTW, that was genuine confusion as to the '10 days and counting' comment before. I spent about 5 minutes trying to figure out the significance of 27th June *insert embarressed face*

Just didn't occur to me that someone would infer that Jake and Reese spending a week and a half apart meant they were breaking up, especially as the established pattern is, one of them starts filming, the other will visit the set after around a couple of weeks, pretty much every film has gone this way. I just took it Jake took some time out, with possibly some PoP related work, to see Maggie and family, whilst Reese settled into her new film - just seem logical to me.

For some logic is a word that doesn't exist AK.

AK, I loved your comment because I had the identical reaction to the "10 days and counting" comment...... I kept racking my brain as to what significant event could be coming up. :)

I never would have guessed that the poster was referring to the time J&R had been apart.

office of nancy pelosi said...

I had the same what the hell are they talking about reaction too. Kinda creepy that someone would spend their time checking off a calendar.

Well he is in DC now, all that worrying for noting, that poor poster!

Love that tidbit about them at the Four Seasons hotel.

Anonymous said...

When i first read that 10 day thing did stop for a second and then i remembered there has been a person or maybe two who have been hoping everytime Jake and Reese haven't been seen together for more than 3 days that means they've broken up. That's the thought and no thinking that they are still individual people who have other family and friends and also work related situations including meetings and various things that go with getting a movie started. Usually if they have been miles apart making a movie at the same time (Christmas & Brothers) where they got away as often as they could to visit the other. Or being on the other side of the world where just travelling there takes a lot of hours but they both did it so they could spend possibly 5 days together.

Fan of Heath & Jake said...

Oh, it reflects more on the poster then on Reese and Jake, anyway. I agree. Very creepy to watch the callendar. The poster must be one of these smothery, insecure, possessive, drama queens.

Most couples have to balance work, family, friends, etc. Jake and Reese are no different. I love it that they try not to be separated for more than or two weeks most of the time. I think they work hard to keep a healthy, stable, relationship.

I'll never forget how she flew to New Mexico on a private plane to get him when he collapsed on set after hearing that Heath had died. I will always like her for doing that. She also doesn't hide her feelings for Jake. It's pretty obvious she is crazy about him. I like her for that, too.

Good night, babblers!

It was just so sad. :'( I'm glad she was there to help him.

lawgoddess said...

I'm very happy to see that Jake and Anne will be working together. I look forward to the publicity, too, that will be fun.

It's fun following Jake on Twitter, I may have to revise my opinion of its value as a cultural phenomenon. :)

Anonymous said...

Jake G fans has a post of someone meeting Jake yesterdy in Washington.

shondra said...

Looking forward to seeing anne and Jake together again too! She handled the interview really well, Imagine getting Jake mixed up with Joaquin!

Ditto regarding twitter Lawgoddess!!

shondra said...

Thanks for the info on Dr. Parnassus Monica, I hope it gets a Us distributor soon!

bobbyanna said...

Hi, all! Had to laugh. I'm really out of the loop. Apparently there's something called the DunkXChange complete with booths and live music. There will be one in L.A. and one in NYC, and today there's one in D.C. on Connecticut Ave. and some young man saw Jake and Reese. Wasn't exactly sure if they were there or if he saw them on the way there. Doubt if Jake is buying any second hand Nikes, but still...

chica said...

I saw that tweet Bobbyanna, sounds like he met them today, the DC Exchange was several days ago.

I have to get used to reading/following twitters, it's gets a bit confusing!

FluorescentLamp said...

And I bet it was Jake's brand new, hot-off-the-assembly-line Nike Dunks he recently bought in NYC that caught that twitter's eye. ;)

bobbyanna said...

OK, chica. That make's more sense :) (Will practice my "reading-with-understanding- skills" for Twittering...or tweeting.)


Wouldn't be at all surprised if that were so, FL.:)


I'm off to the store. My mother, who's 91 and in a nursing home, asked me to stop and pick up a get well card "...for that one who broke her arm... that poor girl...all this trouble, and she fell on top of everything else..."


She meant Hillary, of course. Mother adores her! LOLOL! So I am going to get mother to sign it, write a short note and send it on to the State Department. I mean, why not!:)

chica said...

I'm thinking about my Dad today, he passed away in 1993. Barbeques, a Met game were one of the many things that we all looked forward to doing on this day.

I still miss him, love you Dad always.

UltraViolet said...

{{Chica!}} I thought about my father today, too. He wasn't much for this kind of holiday, but I don't think he really minded the attention.

Speaking of attention, sounds like Jake and Reese weren't in the mood for any.

I enjoyed the Farmers Market story much more :)

Hope they enjoyed whatever movie they saw!

chica said...

Thanks UV.

I hopr they did go see Up, I love that movie, one of the best IMO so far this year.

Farmers market story? Did I miss something!?

Off topic, but JAYSUS! James Blake knocked out in straight sets in the FIRST ROUND at Wimbledon just now? I'm shocked. :/

Thanks FL!

Bit of a shocker, after him doing so well at Queens - mind you, not as big a shock at the outfit Feds turned up in :0

Looks like they went to see The Hangover, (in the comments).

Monica said...

Good morning, babblers!

thanks, FL and UV!

Restaurant Komi:

Also, an added bonus on the night we were there, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhal were two tables away, and though I can't speak for them, they seemed to be enjoying themselves very much.

Next: Federer! :P

UltraViolet said...

You're a bad girl, Monica! Hee.

The Hangover/comments link has a little thing about Jake and Reese at Komi, also.

dc said...

More on the Komo sighting:

"Jack Nicholson digging into a steak at the Palm on Saturday night, sending the downtown restaurant into a frenzy. Drank Diet Coke. Meanwhile, Reese Witherspoon, his co-star in the movie shoot now taking over D.C., dined with Jake Gyllenhaal at Komi. She wore a blue dress, white cardigan; he came over to her side of the table after dessert to cuddle.

www.washingtonpost.com

bobbyanna said...

According to the tweets, they'll be leaving D.C. by the 27th, heading to PA for the longer shoot. Most of the summer. Maybe Jake will spend some time in New York between visits.

Love the sightings! I think maybe the best way to engage Jake in a conversation and hold his attention might be to talk about lettuce...:)

sheba said...

Gutted about James being knocked out. It seems he was in problems or in pain. Now there's no eye candy left although tennis player are generally sexy when playing. Comeon Rodger, win one more time. Would love to see Sampras come over again to watch his record being broken. Yes, what part of contenporary society wears Roger's outfits. He makes me smile and he has dimples.

Great to hear Jake's enjoying himself before getting back to work again. It must drive actors insane being out of work and in between projects for such a long time. Jake and Anne have great chemistry and should have lots of fun together. Of course they are not the same young carefree people of 4 years ago. So much has changed for both of them. They'll be great. Soz about sp. Keyboard on devise tiny :o)
