Strolling plus more from Session 30

Look at those eyes! IHJ has posted more photos from Session 30, a Jake Gyllenhaal photo shoot for Prince of Persia promotion. Some of the shots are similar to ones we've seen, but I especially like the one above and the next one:

More of the Secret Agent Man series. I hope he didn't hurt his neck in the last one!

Some new photos of Jake with his mother in Montreal on Saturday. They dined at Olives+Gourmando, a Jake favorite in the city. The photos are from PopSugar, who report that Kirsten Dunst was dining there with friends at the same time.

I really really don't like that first pic. He looks distressed and/or constipated. Some of these are okay. Just okay.

Samantha Jones said...

I thought he looked orgasmic, but, maybe that's just me. ;) I like the series. Naomi looks great.

Sheba baby said...

Ha, ha, I was going to say that he looks like he has gas in the first photo!. I like the rest of them.

How great that Mom made a visit to Montreal, he doesn't look to pleased to see the paps.

UV: There was no Wondercon coverage on reelzchannel yesterday, just a lot of re-hash stuff they played during the week. Hopefully they will have something this week or the weekend.

UltraViolet said...

LOL - I'm guessing the divergent opinions are what caused this to be an outtake!

I think he looks distressed but hot :)

Thanks for checking, sheba baby. They probably won't do anything new, but it's worth a shot.

Carla said...

Had to watch the pictures again after I read your comments - yes the first one is..he looks like he is can I say it without being rude...lets say it is not his most intelligent look....:-))

The second one and third one looks good IMO.

Naomi looks good - so nice Mom looking after her son while he is working...

bobbyanna said...

Stomach cramps? Definitely... distressed.:)
Great to see Naomi visiting Montreal!

Chica said...

I like the set of pics except for the first one, he looks a bit, um special, lol!!

Mom is looking good!

Not only did Jake spend Saturday night with Isabel Lucas, she also had Sunday brunch with Isabel Lucas AND his MAMA Naomi Foner. I don't think it's too casual if he's introducing her to his mother.

There's a story about it over at Lainey Gossip.

Apparently when Isabel arrived at the restaurant, Byblos Le Petite Cafe, she and Jake even kissed hello. According to Lainey, Jake and Isabel have been inseparable since she arrived in Montreal three or so weeks ago (Chicago notwithstanding).

I'm thinking it's new, but I think this is the beginning of a relationship. This is not just a fling. Sorry bobbyanna. I love you, but this is what I think.

Oops. That should read "he also had brunch with Isabel Lucas and his MAMA Naomi Foner"

One final thing. Say what you will about Lainey, but when it comes to Canadian gossip she's considered the best. Right now all these celebrity sightings is the big story in Montreal, given that there are all these productions going on there.

If she says people are spotting Jake and Isabel together in Montreal, it's because they are.

At first I wasn't so sure if it was a relationship type thing or just a fling. But, again, if he's introducing her to his mother it's because they're together. I won't go so far as to say that Naomi went to Montreal JUST to meet Isabel, but I think we're going to hear a lot more about Isabel Lucas in the coming months.

Something tells me Jake isn't much for flings, or maybe at this stage in his life, he isn't. Hooray! :)

mary said...

they were sighting too of jake out with kirsten dunst too well just have to wait and and see what happens im glad jake is seeing someone if true but i think its too early too say how serious it is

mary said...

their were sightings of jake with kirsten dunst if this true well sure find out they wont wont be able to keep it quit , im glad jake is seeing some one if true but i think its too early to say how serious it is

mary said...

oops sorry for the double post i didnt thik the first one went thru

Monica said...

The second picture is my favorite.

I'm always happy when I see Jake and Naomi together. thanks.

Bobbyana, I think the question about Isabel was a surprise for Jake, not that he did not know who she is.
I do not see this as a lie.

I do not know what is happening, but I also have had the same reaction.

Anonymous said...

Isabel is gorgeous - they'd make a beautiful couple. Lainey is right about one thing - it's like Gisele-and-Tom territory. Would be nice if it's true. *swoon*

Anonymous said...

I agree with 5:54, I don't know if it's true or not. If she is meeting his mom though then it suggests that they are in fact in some type of relationship and Jake wanted to introduce them. That said, I definitely like him with Isabel better than everyone he's been linked with save Rachel McAdams, and I'd be about similarly happy with him being with Isabel and Rachel.

Isabel is very "earthy" like Jake. She loves animals, environmental issues, etc. She's very beautiful, young. She has no baggage. She's in the business, but won't overshadow his own career. She can be really good for Jake.

If this is true we should be happy for him. It would also explain why he's been so happy lately.

Anonymous said...

I think he's happy cause he got rid of his last girlfriend..

lawgoddess said...

Loved the second and third ones, and the ones of Jake and Naomi. Thanks for sharing them!

I think so too. :)

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I hate to pile on but he looks a bit goofy in that first shot! I like the 3rd and 4th shot the best.

Love the pics of Jake and Mom!

I think it's a bit soon to start introducing her to Mom....

Get Real said...

I agree the first one is not a good picture and I am not thrilled with the pose of the last one, but the rest I really like.

I always like seeing Jake with his family. It is one of the things I love most is that he is close with them. They both look great. :)

bobbyanna said...

"...if he's introducing her to his mother it's because they're together."

Sorry. This is just a huge leap. I think this kind of conjecture's premature.

Jake's close to his family. They've been known to socialize with him and his friends. I'd've found it more interesting if they were alone. I just don't invest too much importance in Jake introducing friends to his mom at brunch. Not a big deal.

If he's having fun,and having a social life while he's in Montreal, that's great. I'm just not going to get all excited because he's supposedly been seen with some girl. I have a wait and see attitude. Time will tell. Period.

"ANON" I find your "I love you bobbyanna, but.." condescending. I don't know who you are. That's pretty rude. I sign my name to my posts. I don't particularly care to respond to "Anons." Especially when they appear to be talking to themselves.

As for that gossip blog, if they reported the sun rising in the East I'd seek confirmation from another source. They're as low and despicable as a person can get.

If that's the authority on entertainment gossip in Canada, then Canada could use some help.

Monica, I'm sorry. I didn't mean he didn't know who she was, just that he didn't seem to focus on what the questioner meant. Jake didn't seem to be in a space to talk about his social life.

Monica said...

Poor Canada. I have the same thoughts as you about this blogger, Bobbyana. What she spoke about Heath ...
It was interesting to read some things she writes, just to make sure she is a nothing.

UltraViolet said...

Ah, bobbyanna, aren't the know-it-all anons wonderful? :) So easy to post and run. Or post and post and post.

Anyway, who knows what's happening with Jake and Isabel? Hopefully he's having fun. And so is she.

It would be nice to have a source other than Lainey but I don't automatically discount the story just because of how awful she's been in the past.

And still no love for picture #1, huh? It's just me and Samantha Jones, I guess!

Sara said...

I agree with everything you said bobbyanna. This is the thing i hate the most about being a jake fan is all these rumours. I also found nothing wrong with the photos i loved them!

Ginny said...

I quite like the first pic, but my favorite is the second one, as for the Isael Lucas rumours we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Tweety said...

Add me to the list as to not liking the first pic, he looks confused, LOL!! I like the rest. I'm curious to know the "theme' of these pics since they are Disney/Pop promo pics and not GQ outakes. Speaking of GQ, it looks like the issue with Jake is on the stands:

likeholywine: #NotestoSelf / #GoodPartsofMyDay 2 FOR ONE GATORADE AT RITE-AID AND JAKE GYLLENHAAL IS ON THE COVER OF GQ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What great pics of Jake and his Mom, I will keep my opinions regarding Ms. Lucas to myself, for now!

Monica said...

You are very quick, Michelle!
The photos are beautiful!

Thank you so much for the link Michelle, I like them. E! has a video of Jake's GQ article.

Tweety said...

Thanks Michelle! I remember all the tweets of Jake in NY during this shhot: Times square, Katz deli, The candy store, the toy store, etc. What fun pics!!!

Jake Gyllenhaal said...

Jake Gyllenhaal is only making it worse

Funnier, via Van Halen:
"I just loved jumping whenever they said 'Jump!' I loved the idea that someone would say just go ahead and jump: 'Man, you know what? Just go ahead and f***ing jump!' 'Really?' And Van Halen was like, 'Yes, my friend.'"

Kinder, via his family:
"During conversation [about his parents divorce], Jake also says this: 'Family ... my family, you know ... I love them ... whatever they do, whatever they are ... I love them ... you're actually going to make me cry ...' And just a little, he does."

Thoughtful, via his love of horns:
"Horns are, to me, the most affirmative instrument to say there is something beyond where we are. In Mumford & Sons [music], whenever those horns come on, I feel like it's all going to be okay. Life's all good -- for the whole world. Maybe that's sophomoric, but I really feel that in my heart."

But that's just only begins to skin the surface of his lengthy, wordy, intriguing interview. In the issue (on stands now) Jake talks a bit about Heath Ledger. Not only his passing, but also the reality of their relationship -- "I think we felt safe together." Jake also reveals his intense side, which cropped up while filming "Brokeback Mountain," "Jarhead" and even -- yes -- "Prince of Persia."

GQ said...


Currently busy filming a new movie titled “Source Code,” Jake Gyllenhaal took time to chat it up with GQ magazine for their May 2010issue.

Hitting newsstands on April 20th, the “Brokeback Mountain” stud opens up about his relationship with Heath Ledger, his parents’ recent divorce and his love for his family.

As for his own life, Gyllenhaal explains, “I’m trying not to keep things so neat. I think I’m realizing my strengths and my faults. I think I’m trying to see what is me…and what is not me.”

Talking about working with Heath Ledger, Jake tells, “He was very sensitive. He didn’t always have a sense of performance in his everyday life. He knew who he was. I think actors very often, they know how to present something, and that’s part of their job. I think he was just really sensitive. We often used to do a lot of things together, because people were very interested in him and I think we felt safe together.”

As for how Ledger’s death affected him personally, the 29-year-old explains, “Even when we did Brokeback and stuff, it was like my work was the only thing that mattered to me. It was like I could only understand or define myself through doing that. Life, I didn’t totally understand. And I think I was afraid of life. And I had success in my work, enough success that you could keep going back there. But after that happened…I think I recognized that it was work. And I recognized that this is for real.”

For more of Jake’s interview, go to!

Love those pics in GQ. Can't wait to read the whole interview. By Chris Heath.

When worlds collide. Again.

Perez Hilton has the story about Jake and Isabel.

According to sources, Jake really likes her and especially loves how she "doesn't come with baggage."


Don't hate me because i'm anonymous.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the links, Michelle and Monica - I think that's you :) And thanks for the tweets, Tweety.

Like FL, I can't wait to read the whole thing. I put all the quotes and pics we have so far in a new post.
