When the MSN folks tweeted that "Jake Gyllenhaal sprinted down the red carpet ... giggling," I didn't think we'd get many pictures from ELLE's 17th Annual Women In Hollywood Tribute. Boy, was I wrong! Here's Jake in action:
And from the side. These are ripe for captioning. First up, Jake and Gwyneth, the original Jake-sex-scene crier.
Then Hilary Swank:
"I think I'm going to throw up on Jake Gyllenhaal."
"If I look just to her right, I can see conversational freedom..."
"Unhand me, woman!"
Then Quentin Tarantino:
"The lights have gone out, my eyes are closed, yet he keeps talking. And talking. And talking..."
Would you like to see Jake in a Tarantino flick? Sadly, though Kathryn Bigelow was there, no photo of her and Jake discussing that new venture.
ETA: Aparently, Jake presented Gwyneth with an award.
"Bottom line, she is not a mere mortal like the rest of us," the actor, 29, said in his introduction. "She is an Internet-savvy, award-winning, lifestyle guru, making all of us look lazy. She doesn’t just find a nice guy to settle down with -- she marries a rock star and then domesticates him. She doesn’t just cook -- she goes to Spain with Mario Batali and then domesticates him! She is not just a lifestyle guru, but she invents a whole new fitness movement and then convinces me to try it, and I do it, and I am, therefore, domesticated ... sweating my ass off in spandex, which is humbling and embarrassing."
When Paltrow, 38, took the stage, she said she didn't have a speech because, "I kind of wanted to speak from my heart." And she was more candid than ever.
"Jake is gorgeous and hilarious and when we worked together in Proof, I was pregnant and I was a f****** nightmare hormonal mess, but we managed to stay friends through it anyways," she said.
A couple of tweets of Jake (and Maggie) at tonight's Mumford and Sons show at the Hollywood Palladium.
