The Eastern Premiere



Update: For the sixth year in a row, People Magazine has gotten Sexiest Man Alive wrong by not naming Jake. They did take a great picture of him though.

It's been a revealing year for the actor, who memorably showed off his bulked-up chest in Prince of Persia and strips down for Love and Other Drugs. "I think a true leading man has both strength and vulnerability," says Gyllenhaal, 29.

Amen, Jake!



Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and Ed Zwick attended the 1000th screening of Love & Other Drugs Thursday night. The east coast premiere was held at the Director's Guild in New York City.













Jake on begging and promising Anne:



Jake confirms that he was NOT at the Harry Potter premiere:



And I don't think I've seen the extended version of this other E! interview:

Extra said...

Wow, you are so quick, thanks for posting these pics so fast!

I love how he is looking at her, they both look stunning.

Off to watch the video!

FL said...

They look very sibling-esque tonight. Love her dress.

suvee said...

Oh what lovely photos! Thanks, UV.

Love her dress, too. White is a hard color to wear well, but it's stunning on Anne.

UltraViolet said...

We're on the ball here, Extra! :)

Twitter reaction seems very good, from celebs and non-celebs. From Christian Siriano:

The film was a sweet love story and a great date movie.

Anne plans her role on Glee while Jake is amused.

Lots of L&OD ads today, including one on Oprah. Different from the old one, too.

UltraViolet said...

De nada, suvee.

I love Anne's dress, too, FL and suvee. Anne apparently wore Valentino, which makes sense, since I think Valentino was the premiere sponsor (per Bobbyanna earlier).

bobbyanna said...

Valentino was there! Or maybe it was a wax figure resembling him! LOL!

FL,I wasn't didn't the
"sibling-esque" vibe ;) but they did look charming together.

I wish more pictures were up on Getty so we could find out who else was there besides Jamie Lynne Seigler, Leilei Sobieski, and Oliver Platt.

Thanks for the new pics and interviews. I'm glad Jake and Ed convinced Anne to join them on the movie.

Lola said...

I love Anne's dress, she looks gorgeous. They way he's looking at her is so cute!

Monica said...

Everyone quick! UV, I have some pictures without the mark of getty Images:Gyllenhaalics

Sexy couple!

thanks for the interview!

mary said...

thanks UV what lovely pics to come home to they both look stunning together and yea i love the way hes looking at her too really cant wait till the 24th

Monica said...

I can't stand Glee! I do not understand all this love for Glee!

Valentino was there! Or maybe it was a wax figure resembling him! LOL!

hahahahaha

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, Monica! I replaced the three watermarked ones with your versions. I appreciate it :)

And I don't watch Glee, either. I wonder if Jake does. He didn't seem to pipe up.

Valentino is so creepy, Bobbyanna. I would love to have seen Jake and Oliver Platt interviewed together.

Lola, I love the way he's looking at her, too.

Glad you got a nice welcome home, Mary :)

bobbyanna said...

I did two things I normally don't do today. I watched Oprah to see Streisand and Redford and of course the scenes from The Way We Were.

Oprah kept talking about their on screen chemistry, and when they cut to commercial there was Jake and Anne and the LAOD trailer!:)

And I watched Gwyneth on Glee. She and Lea Michele did the finale song and dance from Chicago and she killed it! I am changing my mind about Gwynnie. A little.

I am loving the way they are looking at each other. (sigh.)

UltraViolet said...

A few more tweets:

Just saw Love & Other Drugs - loved it. Gyllenhaal & Hathaway were stellar..... and naked throughout most of the film, lol.

Peggy Siegal's "Love and Other Drugs" party at Rouge Tomate now. Not sure who's more popular, Jake or the "Catfish" guys.

Despite a trailer that looked like Jake and Anne's audition for a Jerry Maguire parody, "Love and Other Drugs" is definitely worth seeing.


Bobbyanna, this site has a bunch of photos of other folks at the premiere. And a few of Jake with Oliver Platt, Anne and Ed. I'm sure Stephanie will have/has them.

UltraViolet said...

Nice review.

Chica said...

They look incredible, love Anne's dress!

I would have never guessed that it would be held at the Directors Guild.

I have seen tons of commercials for LAOD, I can't believe it will finally be out next week. Love all the positive tweets.

Get Real said...

Squee!!! Such great stuff I can't keep up!!! :D

Sorry, UV, I have been looking but I didn't realize the DGA premiere was happening until it was to late for me to get there. :( The pics from the event look great though! :)

Thanks, UV, FL, Tweety and everyone who is keeping us updated!

Get Real said...

Forgot to say that I do love Glee..can't help it. :)

Get Real said...

Sorry to spam but there are pics of Valentino there. Yes he is totally plastic but if you check out the documentary on him he is a genius and his partner seems like a lovely man and they have a beautiful relationship. So with all that I like Valentino a lot.

mary said...

people has their sexiest man alive alive issue out jake is named as one but ryan reynolds is named sexiest man alive

Monica said...

Very HOT: People

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the info Mary and for the link, Monica. That is a great pic. I added it to the post.

I like RR but no way is he sexier than Jake. And the cover photo is creepy. Both that one and Jake's show Ryan to be a pale imitation. Sorry to any RR fans.

Get real, I heard about that Valentino doc but never saw it. I'll have to try to check it out.

Maybe you and/or chica will get lucky today :)

Monica said...

This photoshoot of Jake is much better than GQ and Esquire session!

Ryan is sexy, but the picture is not so sexy!

I think nobody saw it here: Leaving His Hotel In New York City

Paula said...

They got it wrong again but yeah that is a great photo of him. I think the photo is from a People photoshoot he did around the same time last year, check out the pic on this blog on the right with Natalie's quote!

There is so much to catch up on, Jake and Anne look incredible and Anne's dress is stunning, I love Valentino.

Loving all the positive tweets from the premeire last night.

I love how he is looking at her too!

I can't warm up to Glee, bleh.

bobbyanna said...

There's really nothing I can say. People magazine's a joke. They give us a photograph of Jake looking like...Sin... and then call Ryan Reynolds SMA? Poor Ryan.

I don't dislike Ryan at all. He's very pleasant in the two movies I've seen. But, IMO, he can't open a movie. And after seen some bits from Green Lantern, all I can say, again, Poor Ryan.

I like Valentino. He just seems so stiff and formal in the picture he looked like he came from Madam Tussaud's.

One man's trash...and all that. I took a look at the past winners of People's SMA yesterday and realized there are exactly TWO on that list I agree with. So, you know, to each his own. :-)

Anne plans her role on Glee while Jake is amused.

That bit was really sweet. I wish I liked the character she wants to play maternal aunt to. And how cute that her song choice would come from one of Jake's favorite musicals as well.

FL,I wasn't didn't the
"sibling-esque" vibe ;) but they did look charming together.


If Anne had a tan and blue eyes they'd look identical!

And I watched Gwyneth on Glee. She and Lea Michele did the finale song and dance from Chicago and she killed it! I am changing my mind about Gwynnie. A little.

I thought she was fabulous, if a little too nasally when singing. Actually, she's nasally when she's adopting an accent and singing. Odd that. But I loved her character and loved her singing Cee-Lo's edited version of F*ck You, called Forget You.

Monica said...

Yes, Bobbyana, Ryan is sexy, but I do not know what he did to be named the sexiest man.
I thought Jake would not be elected, because POP has not been great sucess expected, but what Ryan did to be on this list?

bobbyanna said...

"If Anne had a tan and blue eyes they'd look identical!"

Absolutely! They'd look like a matched set, for sure! LOL!
But the vibe I was getting from looking at them together is what had me tongue tied. ;)

A gossip site called partycrashers, I think, tweeted that Naomi was Jake's guest last night. Also read tweets that Jake was a big hit at the afterparty.:)

UltraViolet said...

Zwick says Pfizer had no control over movie:

(Some minor spoilers in the story)

At first, I thought Pfizer must be in on this. How else would they allow their logo, name, and brands to stamped all over a major motion picture?

But Zwick said last night that he’s had no contact with Pfizer or anyone else. “This is not a product placement. But the Fox lawyers told us to go ahead.”


This site would agree with your non-sibling take on things, Bobbyanna!

Oh great’, we thought, ‘another premiere, another dozen pictures to crop, another article about pretty ladies in pretty dresses. Blah blah blah… wait a minute, look at the way Jake is staring at Anne. And she’s laughing at the little jokes he’s whispering in her ear. Aww and he looks all pleased with himself as he holds her waist. Well isn’t that sweet, they're so happy together and it's not even that annoying - what a nice couple.’

UltraViolet said...

From Deadline, about Ronni Chsen, a longtime Hollywood publicist who was killed on Monday:

Last night, I attended a DGA screening of Ed Zwick's Love and Other Drugs. At a post-screening party at Tomate, the shock over her death dominated the conversation. She was part of the Oscar push on many of this year's films, including that one.

bobbyanna said...

Wow. I'd read about the Ronni Chasen shooting,and I knew she was a heavyweight publicist, but I had no idea she was involved with LAOD!
She was very involved in various Oscar campaigns.

Apparently she was driving home from the Burlesque premiere, alone, and was shot five times and killed while driving her car! They have no idea what happened.

UV, lots of tweeters think Anne and Jake should be a couple, too.:)

UltraViolet said...

I didn't know she was involved either, Bobbyanna. It's a very disturbing story.

Paula, I forgot to comment on your idea that the photo of Jake is from that same photoshoot. You could be on to something there. I can't tell if the hair and beard are the same, but they are close.

We'll see if Stephanie gets any other shots.

ET breaks the exciting news that Jake and Anne are on the cover of EW. Monica - yay!

Go here for untagged photos of lots of the people at the premiere. there are about 1000 of Anne and five of Jake :)

RyanR said...

"But, IMO, he can't open a movie. And after seen some bits from Green Lantern, all I can say, again, Poor Ryan."

Ryan can´t open a movie, but Jake can?? Which one? PoP??

Poor Ryan?? Seeing the tracking for LAOD Jake should be the one you are worried about....!

UltraViolet said...

How nice of Ryan to stop by on such a busy day!

A report on the afterparty, from one of those tweeters from last night:

Jake was not dressed by the designer but still looked good enough to give several groups of women at the after-party a case of the giggles. While I usually consider myself a grown-up and a professional, I was reduced to a 14 year old girl who couldn't wait to scribble his name in bubble letters on the imaginary trapper keeper which holds my sexual fantasy material. If you enjoy him on the big screen, you would likely feel the same.

There was a report on FB from someone who said Jake might have been giving her a "rescue me" look as he was surrounded by "grabby" women, lol.

Sag actor said...

What a disturbing and sad story out of HW regarding Ronni Chasen. She was a major force and very hands on, had no idea that she was involved with LAOD.

Thanks for all the updates.

I don't comment on Jake's personal life and I know Anne has a BF and Jake is supposedly seeing Taylor Swift but after checking out the pics and videos of them for the past few weeks all I have to say is too bad they aren't involved.

It's rare that there is onscreen and off screen chemistry, and that's all I will say on the matter!

JF said...

Jake and Anne look amazing. I can't wait for LAOD. :)

Kendra said...

thanks for the Twitter report, UV, I can relate to feeling reduced to a 14 year old girl, lol

UltraViolet said...

Hey Kendra. I like to think I'd be calm and composed if I ever met him, but who knows!

SAG Actor, I think a lot of people share your feelings on Jake and Anne. It's funny to read all of the tweets and posts, etc., rooting for them to be a couple.

JF, I can't wait, either! But I'm still not watching that red band trailer. Yet...

Posted a couple of new videos. One is the Ben Lyons interview form last night, which is full of the usual awkwardness but is actually pretty good. The other is a clip from the AFI premiere.

suvee said...

Well, that pretty much sums up my very visceral reaction to the People photo of Sexy Jake. That is easily the best Jake pic I've seen in a long, long, long time.

I like Ryan R. too, but there's no way he beats Jake in the sexy department. I must say that I gained a lot of respect for him after seeing Adventureland. IMO he delivered a very skilled and nuanced performance in a role that could easily have degenerated into a stock stereotype. He is the only thing that I really remember from that movie.

Another Glee fan here. And yes, I admit to wishing that Jake would make a guest appearance..... he would be awesome on that show. I think he would have a ball. But the special guest star thing is becoming a little old hat and stale. Although Gwyneth was funny and good last night.

Haven't watched the Ben Lyons clip yet..... not sure what to expect!

UltraViolet said...

From someone who works for something called Deco Drive

Going through my interview with Jake and Anne for my Love and Other Drugs story. They're so funny, I wish I could air the whole thing!

A look at the afterparty.

UV said...

Suvee, the interview is actually pretty fun. A bit odd but a couple of funny parts.

I saw the People photo credited to the same photographer (Nino Munoz) who did the Esquire UK photos. But I don't know if he also did the earlier photos Paula mentioned too. If they had this shot for Esquire and didn't use it, they are nuts!

I've never seen Adventureland but I do think RR can act. But his look just doesn't make me go Wow.

ADVENTURELAND!!! LOL I didn't even know Ryan Reynolds was IN that! I loved it for Martin Starr, my geeky-boy crush of the moment. <3 <3 Swoon.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

That first photo posted from People: THUD! He looks damn good and sexy, Ryan who??

Reynolds is handsome but he doesn't do anything for me and that is a really bad photo of him on the cover.

The comments about Jake and Anne are dead on, I love them together, they really compliment each other.

The Lyons interview was fun but weird, thanks!

I can relate to turning into a 14 year old girl around Jake, I probably would too!

Jake arriving a the Ed Sullivan theater for the Letterman show:

Monica said...

UV, this news on the cover of EW made me feel like a 14 year old girl. I hate it, but it will be a dream to see these two together.
I love to see Jake and Anne together. A passion since Brokeback (Of course, Heath is still and will always be my number one on my favorite photos with Jake).

Now, I expect a movie with Michelle Williams and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Two questions, People: Where's James Franco and Ryan Gosling?

bobbyanna said...

The Ben Lyons bit was fun. ET showed the cover of EW and three different poses.

O.M.G.

They (Jake & Anne together)are a work of art. EW really nailed it.

Get Real said...

RR as People's sexiest??? No way, Jake looks stunning in pic....HOT!!

So much to catch up on! :D

Get said...

Watching the Ben Lyons interview...which was awkward yet very fun...I see we have our fave BG there!

Get Real said...

^^ Sorry that was me. :)

Lola said...

I thought that people photo was from the set we got when he was promoting POP. I love Glee to, i havent watched Gwyneth's episode yet. I can't wait to see the EW photos.

Tweety said...

That photo of Jake is smokin hot, compare that to Mr. Reynolds cover and all you can do is scratch your head???

The only thing I like about the Lyons interview is the sight of Mr. BG and Jakes rep Carrie giggling in the background!

I didn't see the ET story on their cover, now I can't wait to buy it, I never thought I would ever say that, LOL!

They look so good together, I hope they do another film together.

Jake is on Letterman tonight!

mary said...

wow exciting news to come home to cant wait to get my ew magazine its the only magazine i get and cant wait to see jake on letterman

UltraViolet said...

Monica, I'm so thrilled. For them and us! They showed one of the covers on Letterman, and it's gorgeous.

Jake was great on Letterman, and Dave seemed more engaged. And didn't ask him about his parents/family again!

Lots happening today. This is a fun time :)

Monica said...

here: EW

UV, there is a channel here that shows the Letterman program, but with a few days late, because the programs must be captioned.
Usually I expect to see on TV. But I do not know if I'll get to wait.
Thank you for reporting that he was great.

Monica said...

Letterman said something about the movie?

UltraViolet said...

Monica, there's a short clip on youtube - I posted it in the new post :)

Dave didn't really talk about the movie itself, just about the nakedness.

New post, people!
