Love and Other Drugs Running

It's clear that the team behind Love and Other Drugs knows how to showcase their leading male. Here's Jake Gyllenhaal, running in character:


"Gonna fly now/flying high now/gonna fly, fly, fly...

"Oh, no, that's Philadelphia, not Pittsburgh!"


"What - you don't have your own spritzer?"

Awkward extra/interloper: "I can do that tongue thing, too."

Everyone else: "NO! You really can't."


"I hate these earphones! I want my earbuds!"

"I am going to kill them if they can't take out that huge, G-20 poster that is clearly an anachronism and I have to do this freaking scene again."


"You're kidding, right?"


"Okay, one more time..."

Leaning guy: "So he's 'good-looking' and has some muscles. It's not like he can fly. Wait..."


Even more awkward extra or interloper: "Shit, my hand is stuck in my pocket! Maybe no one will notice."

How is it possible that we didn't get tweets or twitpics of this filming? But a couple of IMDBers were there today for filming:

Who was it they were filming running in downtown Pittsburgh. Was that Jake?

Re: Filming in Pittsburgh

Yup, and I was crossing in front of him and walking past him with an ancient cell phone in the first couple of takes. The sidewalk traffic was pretty heavy though I guess, so in the last few takes, they did it without some of us who were walking in his direction. You may have seen me run past him a couple times when we were resetting the shot.


Great - There were alot of people, so I am not sure if I saw you or not, but that is very cool.

Re: Filming in Pittsburgh

I think I almost got run over by Jake on the second take. I may have been more concerned on crossing over where I was supposed too, and all the crowding screwed up people's timing. I think the shot was screwed from the start though, because right after I started my bit, which was stepping out and across the view of one of the cameras and walking across the crosswalk, either the AD or Ed Zwick yelled "There are too many *beep* people!". Traffic wasn't shut down or anything, which sure didn't help, and regular pedestrians kept walking into frame, hence the later takes being less crowded, at least as far as extras go.


I want to see the ancient cell phone! The always crack me up.

And this wasa nice tweet. From someone whose neighbor is an extra

He said Jake is super nice and interacts with the extras. Very funny guy.

Extra said...

What a great way to start the day, those arms!! He is looking good.

Love the captions! Jake has the power to get people to stop smoking, as if we need anymore proof that he is truly amazing!!

Love that account, what a great post!

Anonymous said...

Great fun post UV, all the captions are funny but I think my favorite is.

Akward extra/interloper: "I can do that tongue thing, too."

Everyone else: "NO! You really can't."


Aso love the Whole Food story, wish he could help me to stop smoking:).

Cathy E. said...

Awwww, love that Whole Foods encounter - I didn't know Tom's of Maine was now owned by Colgate.

He's looking great. :) Really looking forward to LaOD.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Headphones!! They are making sure they are getting the 90's thing right. Even with the fake sweat he looks hot, I hope the rest of the shoot is done outdoors.Thanks IHJ and UV, Funny captions, made me laugh out loud!!

I love reading that Whole foods encounter, it put a big ole smile on my face this morning.

bobbyanna said...

Whole Foods encounter was really cute, UV. I'm glad this girl didn't even try to pretend to be all blase' about it! :)

The running pictures are fun. It's must difficult to shoot that kind of scene without closing down the area.

(Makes note to try Tom's of Maine...)

Paula said...

I have to catch up with all the Jakenews and updates on Love and Drugs, Pop, etc! He looks smokin hot , I bet he caused a few traffc jams running around!

So Tom of Maine was taken over by Colgate, you learn something new everyday, LOL!!! Your captions are hilarious UV, what a fun post!

UltraViolet said...

Glad you guys liked the Whole Foods story. I just love the way she related it. And Jake sounds like he was adorable.

When we got those pics after I found that blog, I was in new post heaven. I'm a little surprised more people haven't commented. Perhaps the sweaty hotness knocked many of you out? :)

It's hilarious to see so many blogs that don't realize Jake was filming. I saw one that commented on the old-school headphones. Hee.

Speaking of which, while I wouldn't want those, I despise ear buds. I have very old-fashioned, but small, headphones.

Anonymous said...

There are a lot of people who go to movies and most of the time know who is in the movie (I say that because went to Matrix and a person behind me said "Oh, that's Keanu")but they don't follow closely, They may just glance at newspapers or magazines and don't look on various actors web-sites.
And there may still be people who don't know who Jake is or have only heard his name or vaguely are aware. (Yes, we know that will change).
I'm not sure why Jake is confused with Tobey. In their earlier careers I knew who Tobey was and Jake was and never confused them.
It's just not paying much attention I guess.
When "Brothers" is out then that should end. Unless of course someone thinks Jake is Tobey and Tobey is Jake in the movie.

suvee said...

Sweaty, sleeveless Jake....... my reward for a semi-stressful and intense work day. Can't get over how young he can look when he's clean shaven.

Loved Alicia's Whole Foods story! This is how I like to read about Jake sightings..... plenty of detail and charmingly written.

My bones soften and my blood goes hot. I smile.

I really get a kick out of descriptions of Jake's effect on people. Her's was a particularly good one IMO. :)

Great post, UV! Your captions cracked me up..... I needed a giggle tonight. Thanks!

Monica said...

THUD THUD THUD
I think this movie will be very good. With all good!:P

I'm love with the story of Alicia.

thanks for all informations!

Chica said...

I second that THUD Monica, Mr. G is looking fine! I saw the TMZ post UV, they have no clue that he is filming a movie, LOL!!! I had a long hard day at work and the post made me laugh out loud and swoon, thanks UV!

I loved that Alicia encounter with Jake at Whole foods. He was his usual charming self and she was besides herself!

bobbyanna said...

I had to smile at this tweet, tonight:

"...if anyone on twitter knows where in pittsburgh jake gyllenhaal is at any time please let me know immediately!!!!!"

Cathy E. said...

I loved that Whole Foods account of meeting Jake - it gives a whole new meaning to not fixing up and then running into someone you know at the grocery store! lol

lawgoddess said...

Jake is oh so gorgeous !

The captioning was very clever, made me laugh. And I loved the Whole Foods story. I use Toms of Maine!

I just think it's so sweet, him dashing into Whole Foods all the time. Maybe it reminds him of home.

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Very good and as always thank you very much! Do they know why it is not possible to enter to Jake's official web? www.jakegyllenhaal.com

Sheba baby said...

I just want to take this opportunity to thank Ed Zwick for having a scene where Jake is jogging and looking this hot and sweaty even though the sweat is fake!! His arms are to die for, sigh.

Your captions have me cracking up UV, especially the Rocky reference!

That Whole foods encounter is one of the best Jake encounters I have read, details and more details!! She is so lucky!

That tweet made me smile too Bobbyanna.

FluorescentLamp said...

I just think it's so sweet, him dashing into Whole Foods all the time. Maybe it reminds him of home.

I'm sure it does, LG; all part of his/the CZ we speak so fondly of here.

Kudos to UV who did a great job with this post. And to Alicia for her tres adorable story of Jake and Whole Foods and Tom's of Maine.

I used to think Rendition!Jake was my favorite Jake look, then when the PoP!Hair!Extensions and Pumped!Jake showed up I thought that was my favorite Jake look. But I gotta say, I'm really digging 1997!Jake from latest pics of him.

Tweety said...

Those lucky citizens of Pittsburgh, they get to oogle, tweet, drool and blog about Jake for the next few months! I use Tom of Maine too!! Love Alicia's story and reading about Jake's CZ's. I like his look here too, his hair is perfect.

I love this tweet:

I don't think there were any actual sightings of Jake today, so maybe he went to Philly. Then again, his niece's birthday is this weekend.

He looks amazing here and it looks like they darkend his hair. I love reading about Jake and his CZ, with Whole foods being his fav, I love reading about that encounter!

I laughed out loud reading your captions UV, funny stuff!

Gyllenbabble rocks! I love to come here! You guys have the best stuff and you always are first with stuff, too, most of the time. This is my first stop every day. I love Jake! I think Him and Reese are very happy, and seem like fun.

i agree this is the best place for jake news and a fun place to visit keep up the good work

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the enthusiasm, anons :) You should stick around and pick names!

And no Philadelphia this weekend for Jake. Or Reese. Because? They are in Boston.

Hollywood couple Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon were in town last night for a wedding - but, alas, not their own. The two actors flew in from Tinseltown to see Witherspoon’s assistant, Hillary Lyman, get hitched to Ken Franchi at the State Room high above Boston. Word is there may have been a few other familiar faces among the 180 or so guests. Well-wishers enjoyed an open bar and feasted on filet mignon and buttermilk chicken.

Monica said...

They are in your town!Awwww
thanks, UV!

Happy Birthday, Ramona!

Debra said...

Maybe someone will "twitpic" them in Boston!
At first I thought Twitter was stupid and irritating, but now I am loving it because we get to keep up with Jake and Reese, but without the paparrazzis bothering them so much.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I love that they manage to spend weekends together despite them both working, it must help that they are both filming in PA!

Last weekend she was in Pittsburgh, the weekend before that they were in Brooklyn and now Boston! UV/FL keep your eyes out, they may have decided to stick around after the wedding!

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Oh, and happy birthday Ramona, thanks for the reminder Monica!

Jake Gyllenhaal is trying to be incognito on my flight. I might be the only one that recognizes him since everyone else is a senior citizen

http://twitter.com/jessemackj/status/4578595453

No clue where he's flying from or flying to. But if it's Boston he's flying from - smart move Jake.

Tweety said...

This person is from NY, it sounds like Jake is flying to NY??

AndyPicarro: jake gyllenhaal is on my flight. So if we crash he will be the only thing the news talks about. And that kinda pisses me off.

Once again - an idea that senior citizens wouldn't know who Jake was...for some people a senior citizen is somewhere over 50..I'm in that category and I know who he is...and I'm sure not all senior citizens are oblivious of movies and t.v. and just genral info.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure that's not what was meant - Jake's older fans are less likely to act like a fool if they do recognize him, so maybe that's what motiviated it. He wouldn't be disturbed. :)

Well, technically, if you're over 46, you're old enough to be his mother. But I certainly don't consider that "old."...sorry for growling...:)

Hi, babblers. Just finished talking to my oldest, and she's in a 5k race tomorrow in NYC. She's new to running, and it's not the big NYC Marathon, but wouldn't it be interesting if she saw Jake! I doubt it, but, hey!

I loved the Philly Chitchat guy's pic of the peregrine falcon staying at the Ritz too! Those birds really know how to live. In NYC, the redtailed hawks live at a penthouse on 5th Avenue, Trump Park and Columbus Circle. :)

Tell your daughter to keep her eyes peeled for Jake tomorrow Bobbyanna! I will be nowhere near the marathon tomorrow.

Hmmm. Pittsburgh to Boston to NY? Probably to NY for Ramona's birthday.

Great that he and Reese attended her assistant's wedding, thanks for the link UV!

Anonymous said...

Yep, old enough to be Jake's Mother.
It's just "people" to me and you can like people of any age.
Yes older folks, if knowing who he was, would be glad to see him but wouldn't bother him, esp. on a plane. Now they might say Hi if they saw him on the street.
Just saw it as one of those things where people assume people of this or that age group..or women or men wouldn't be interested or know about things that others may know about (?). As in - oh, she's a woman she wouldn't know anything about football. that type of thing. (Use that because I do like and know about football)
isn't Jake's movie to go through most of November. And there will be time-off here and there.
Anne should be showing up soon.

IMDB:
There's another day I have on "Love and Other Drugs" that shoots a week from Tuesday at Mellon Arena. I think we'll be shooting what's supposed to be a Pfizer corporate rally or convention or whatever. I think there's going to be something like 450 extras.

Chica said...

Thanks for the link Monica! It sounds like we may be getting some more pics of Jake filming if that poster is correct.

Love reading that interview with Pater, thanks Extra!

Monica said...

Doug Liman
We’re actively doing what’s called the “Effects Breakdown” for my untitled Moon film in order to budget the movie, given how effects-intensive it is. Kevin Elam and I go through the script and come up with every single effects shot we anticipate might be in the film. Obviously, it’s a guess right now because we’re so far out from shooting the film, but you read a line in the script and you think: How many shots am I going to need to make that idea work onscreen? Then you come up with this list of probably 1,200 shots. That list then goes to someplace like ILM (the mother of effects houses) and they bid, and that probably takes a couple of weeks. This is one page of the list that we put together. We’ve blacked out the numbers, but it’ll give you an idea of what we’re working on: Visual Effects Breakdown.

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for the update, Monica!
"... you read a line in the script and you think: How many shots am I going to need to make that idea work onscreen? Then you come up with this list of probably 1,200 shots."

It's exhausting just reading about the process! I really admire the people who can DO it. Over and over again. It has to be a "calling." Not for the faint-hearted.:)

Shondra said...

I hope we get more pics of Jake like this while he is filming, he looks hot! LMAO at the guy spritzing water/sweat on Jake!

I loved reading that Whole foods story, thanks! Looks like they attended a wedding in Boston over the weekend!!!

Thanks for the update on the continuing processs of getting UMP to the big screen Monica, I find it all fascinating.

Sorry for spamming!

But if this tweet is true then apparently they traveled seperately to NY since the airport tweets were of Jake solo, If I remember last time they were in Brooklyn a few weeks ago there were no airport tweets just one of Reese on a train (Amtrak?) in Philly right before she was spotted in Brooklyn. I wonder if she did the same thing after leaving Boston:

Love this Jake sighting from yesterday.

This afternoon at US Air waiting for some dysfunctional kiosk help, I began to grow impatient at the three lady counter reps who were so giddily engaged in a conversation with some dude they couldn’t attend to my multiple excuse-me-ma’am’s. Do you not SEE ME? There are THREE of you. Hello? These ladies suck.

Then I saw the dude.

O.M.G. Jake. Gyllenhaal. My. Love. Adorable.

He was charming them with some crap about being Spiderman, which I don’t get, but I might have just been confused because -- O.M.G. Jake. Gyllenhaal. Exquisite in person with the perfect weekend stubble, although a little shorter than I expected (no problem here - I've got a tall one at home).

No talking. Just looking…like a bug-eyed frizzy-haired mouth-breather. It’s a good thing I got it out of my system with Joy. Otherwise I would have had to do it -- “Hey Jake. Hey. Hi. I, uh, I wish I knew how to quit you.”

Tweety said...

I love reading that anon., thanks! Rhe Spiderman thing again but it sounds like he bought it up.

Was wondering if he was at the football game.
I've never thought of 6 feet tall as being "shorter" tho maybe if you think he's 6'2" it might seem that way.
With Reese making a movie and Jake making a movie their schedules might not work out that they can travel at the same time.

Anonymous said...

I think it's a good thing Jake and Toby are in Brothers, together. Now people can see that Spiderman is a TOTALLY different person.

agent_krycek said...

If you get passed the classic 'black Irish' colouring (and yes, I do realise Jake isn't Irish :p ) Tobey and Jake don't look that much alike at all, in fact I reckon the older they get the less alike they look.

Nice interview with Peter as well, I do like that man, I think he's destined to be one of Hollywood's great character actors.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Thanks for all the updates! Peter is so underrated IMO, love reading the interview. The Moon movie sounds more and more inyeresting, I hope we get to see this on the big screen real soon.

Sounds like they were in NY as well, for Ramona's birthday??? Must be difficult to travel together with both of them filming even though they are in the same state. I think I read that Reese will be filming until Nov. because they are behind schedule due to re-shoots. I'm impressed with how they still manage to squeeze in time together no matter what.

Again with the Tobey & Jake Spiderman mix-up. I agree Agent K as they get older the more they will not look alike although I really don't think they look alike now.

bobbyanna said...

That's a really cute airport story!

I guess I never "got it" that Jake and Toby look alike. There must be a vague resemblance, I guess, since it comes up pretty regularly.
I agree that as they get older, this will be less so.

And OONP and Agent K, I couldn't agree with you more. Brilliant character actor. Peter is such an interesting actor to watch. Definitely will be around for a long time.

bobbyanna said...

OT, FYI: My daughter's 5k race was in the Bronx(!) but she felt good about it and said she is going to run in Manhattan in a couple of weeks. I hope she isn't talking about the NYC Marathon. That would be brutal for a new runner. But she said the course she ran yesterday was really hilly in spots. But in Manhattan, it is like a huge mob, isn't it? (It's part of my job description to worry:))

She might get a Jake sighting in Manhattan, bcz there sure wasn't one in the Bronx! (Trying to get back on-topic.)

Hi Sass, hope all is going well with you.

Aww, Sass - good to see you. Glad the post made you smile!

UltraViolet said...

Here's a video interview with the little girl who plays Tobey and Natalie's older daughter in Brothers. She gushes about all the actors and the experience, and especially about Jake.

Good news? PR for Brothers. Bad news? It's on some website I've never heard of and features one of the child actors!

Jake sighting from this morning:

Jake is downstairs right now!! They're filming in the Grand Concourse! Anne Hathaway will be here starting the 17th!! I think I would seriously pee my pants if I saw them.

I've seen a couple of other unremarkable sightings, all of which have comments about how nice Jake is. Seems like Pittsburgh likes him!

Lemon said...

Merci beaucoup for all the Jake tidbits. Especially loving the photos and those arms.

So I was reading the blog for Jupiter One (an awesome band I love) and seems they met Miss Witherspoon

Backstage after the show we had the pleasure of seeing Paul Rudd and Reese Witherspoon back there...Zac noticed Reese staring at him quite a bit and then she finally said, "You look familiar."

I do love these little encounters.

Jake fan said...

Thanks for the link to the interview UV. I am starting to fear that Lionsgate will do nearly nothing to promote the film. It is a shame.

Extras needed for LAOD:

Love and other drugs

R-rating for the film? Good....:-))

Baillie is that mature I find her deeply scarey - I don't think I've yet managed those levels of poise and maturity and I'm decades older :o

Thanks Lemon, that was a fun read!

There are a lot of films being shot in PA/Pittsburgh/Philly thanks to tax incentives, thanks Jake FAn.

bobbyanna said...

"Baillie is that mature I find her deeply scarey.. "
Gotta agree with you, Agent K. She's very "practiced" in her presentation...but I had to really smile at her obvious preoccupation with Jake!

UV/FL don't know how you both keep coming up with so many gems, but I sure appreciate it! I also appreciate everyone else's links and additions. Someone said it the other day: GB rocks!

I'd read somewhere that Russell Crowe and Liam Neeson are making a movie in Pittsburgh and there's at least one other, too.

People are blowing up things in downtown Detroit...re-make of "Red Dawn" of all things! Ugh! Movies are shooting all over Michigan bcz of tax incentives, too.

Sheba baby said...

Baillie is 9 yrs old??Wow, she is more articulate than a lot of adults I know! Yeah, she is a bit scary and rehearsed, but she is adorable and loves how she gushes about Jake! Thanks for the video UV!

Can't wait intil he starts to do PR for Brothers, it's been awhile.

FluorescentLamp said...

Wow, that Bailee. How does one acquire such poise and command of language at such a young age? It'll be interesting to watch her career trajectory.

Anonymous said...

I'm not convinced that's a "real" interview. I think she's given a sort of script and imitates adults very well. Altho, I'm certain her enthusiasm for Jake was quite spontaneous and sincere! I agree, tho, she seems a natural actress. Will she be the next Dakota Fanning or Emma Watson? Time will tell.

Sag actor said...

Baillie is a very smart and poised young lady, thanks for finding the interview UV.

I'm glad the guy got to meet Jake and have a photo. It's a shame he had to wait for it. I don't think I would have stuck around after that kind of a response from Jake. But I'm glad the story had a happy ending.

Anonymous said...

We didn't hear the tone of voice from Jake and actually he was telling the truth. It isn't always about "the fan" & the feeling that you have to have attention from a celebrity anytime you want it..and forgetting that they have also been there that day and they have been working. There's no way any celebrity can talk to and spend time with or even say hello to every person who wants to talk to them. No one could do that.
The thing is always the fan feels they know who this person is. They've seen their movies, they have read about them, etc.
The celebrity does not know this person or anything about them. This is a stranger to them.
I'm sure they do the best they can under those circumstances.

It must be hard to be "on" all the time, like an actor is perceived to be. Jake looks a little tired, but good. I love his socks and sandals. :)

Well said, anon 9:18. ITA with everything you said. And I think Jake is generally gracious and accessible to his fans.

I'm afraid I wouldn't be a very good public figure...... I probably would resent this kind of intrusion too often. Luckily, I'm a total unknown! :)

Monica said...

UV, I think this interview with Baillie is not for the promotion of Brothers. I believe that her agent got the interview for the public to know about her work, because during the release of Brothers the attention will be going for Jake, Tobey and Natalie.

I hope to see an interview of Jake and Tobey together for a magazine.

I don't think I would have stuck around after that kind of a response from Jake.
Me too. But this reaction shows a human side of Jake.I like to see this human side of him.

UltraViolet said...

Calm down, anon. No one, including the blogger, is claiming to know Jake. Well, except maybe you.

And no one is attacking Jake, either. But I was taken aback when I read Jake's initial response. Bad day/bad joke/bad fan - who knows? We weren't there. But if it had been me, I wouldn't have stuck around for Round Two.

Happy Jake was nice when he returned and apologized.

The blogger commented further that Atticus was barking like crazy when Jake had to go back to work. Poor Atti!

UltraViolet said...

I agree, Monica. He's just human. He's not nice all the time. Nothing to freak out about. As I said, I'm glad the blogger wasn't deflated by the initial encounter.
