London Calling

The Love & Other Drugs gang has landed in London for another press junket. Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and Ed Zwick arrived this morning. Looks like Jake has a new sweater/coat! Anne must have left her stylist at home.

In the British spirit, here's an ITN video with interviews of Jake and Josh Gad and then a Reuters clip with Jake and Anne:

Would love to hear what Anne says at the beginning: "We're the Regis and Kelly of... ?" And it was nice to hear Josh Gad's take on things.

Stay tuned, as more could be added throughout the day. Et voila. "Generic" interview with Jake and Anne, in two parts:

Love the story about the Porsche. And the "sleeping."

Haven't seen this interviewer before. Anne and Jake really appreciate him and vice versa!

I appreciate seven minutes of Jake and Anne. When I saw the time, I assumed at least two minutes would be from clips.

Can Jake get a woman's phone number?

You can vote for Jake as favorite Action Star and PoP for Action movie in the People's Choice Awards.

Thanks to Stephanie/IHJ for the fast photos!

Thanks to you and IHJ for your speediness, I still haven't caught up fully on the previous posts!

I love when Jake is promoting his movies, so much goodies to take in! I did see a few of the Jake and Anne videos and their chemistry is amazing. They obviously are enjoying promoting this movie and so is Ed Zwick.

I hope LAOD does well, and it's nice to see not just Jake heavily promoting this movie, in the past it seemed that he was a one man promo show.

Off to catch up!!!

UltraViolet said...

You're welcome, Josie. This is fun! And it isn't quite as hectic as PoP, so far anyway.

It is nice for Jake to have someone to share promotional duties with. He's usually on his own or, in the sad case of Brothers, not used enough.

Have fun catching up!

Jake on Viagra:

“I'm probably the wrong actor to ask,” Gyllenhaal tells PopcornBiz with a grin. “I know all the chemical components and all the side effects and all the issues having to do with it and how to sell Viagra. I think that I could probably sell it very well to a doctor. In terms of my experience with the drug itself, I choose to keep that under wraps. Some things you have to keep to yourself.”

Gyllenhaal understands the curiosity about the drug and its effects on sexual performance, especially as it pertains to his randy character, a lothario learning to love based on real-life pharmaceutical rep Jamie Reidy.

“As soon as that was in the backdrop we knew that it was a funny movie,” says Gyllenhaal. “It's fascinating, because of the time that it was invented, it was sort of stumbled upon. And I was 16 – I knew about it. It was a word that I understood. I somehow knew it was connected to Bob Dole, but I didn't really get it! So it was funny to see, particularly in doing the research, what a phenomenon it was and how probably 98% of the people using it didn't really have erectile dysfunction. Those are my percentages, so you can blame me for that, but I did a lot of research.”

Anne's Halloween costume idea:

“Jake, I almost wanted to be one of your biceps for Halloween. But I wouldn’t have fit through any doorways.”

Thank you for everything!

It was a hard day, but I need to do something fun and that makes me relax a little. Jake, Anne, and Love And Other Drugs is a good option.

Thanks to Stephanie (IHJ) and you, UV! This has just been such a treat! I'm loving Anne and Jake promoting this together. They really seem to be enjoying each other. It's very light-hearted and easy.

FL said...

Raise your hand if you want to snatch those sunglasses off Anne's head and stomp them into the ground.

UltraViolet said...

Can the jacket and the horrible pants and shoes get stomped, too?

UltraViolet said...

Oh, Monica - glad the L&OD crew is helping to cheer you up :)

Bobbyanna, I agree. Light-hearted and fun.

Chica said...

Yes and YES UV &FL, that is not a good look for Anne at all.

Kudos for keeping up on all the late breaking LAOD news, it has been fun and Jake and Anne are becoming addictive, they are having a ball promoting this movie!

Looking forward to the UK coverage, should be fun!!!

Glad that Jake and Anne are making you feel a bit better Monica,they are a good tonic:)

Monica said...

I have to say that this promotion is very good. Jake and Anne together, in addition, people are responding very well to the commercials of laod.

UltraViolet said...

Chica, I called Anne's look a cross between Truman Capote and Jackie O.

I hesitate to go by twitter reaction, which seemed so good for PoP. But most of the tweets I've seen have been very positive.

Just posted another interview that will continue to cheer your day, Monica :)

UltraViolet said...

Can anyone understand what Jake says as an aside when Anne says the funniest parts aren't in the trailer? I wonder if he's saying "maybe not even in the movie?"

Also, Jake is up for a People's Choice Award.

Extra said...

My computer is acting funky and I can't view any of the video's posted:(, I'll try again later.

Wow, London! They are really going all out to promote this movie. It's been a blast watching Jake and Annie interact with each other, you can see how their chemistry translated to the screen.

I like the Capote/Jakie O comparisons UV, oh Anne!!!

Thanks for the P. Choice link, UV!

Thanks for all the info! We return to May,when there was a lot of stuff, with Pop coming out!

I hope Jake choose a project soon! What will be of us, after Source Code??? :(

Tweety said...

Ha, ha I caught Jake and Anne on Extra and they were so cute and funny!

Mario asked Jake what was his favorite love song and he said it was I whip my hair back and forth and Anne started whipping her hair, LOL!

I love watching them together, the videos are so much fun and I'm looking forward to seeing the UK stuff as well.

bobbyanna said...

Dang! I missed Extra! Hope we get a clip of the segment. I'm enjoying these interview clips more than anything I can recall! They are so sweet together.

Jackie O for sunglasses and Capote for the jeans?!LOL!!!
When I saw the jacket,I thought of Hilary Swank channeling Amelia Earhart!:) I love Anne:)

Lola said...

Jake and Anne are so cute and funny together. I love them. I also love coming on here and having something new about Jake to watch or read. I really hope he chooses another project soon. After Source Code we're going to be in for tough times:)

I agree with everybody, Jake and Anne are magic together.

So good, everything is well in the Gyllenworld.


Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

We are getting spoiled again, I love all the videos and interviews with Jake and Anne!!

They have incredible chemistry and are having so much fun, I really hope the film does well, I plan on seeing it on opening day.

The ivillage video is so cute and the Extra interview is funny even though I am sick and tired of that song by Will Smith's kid!

They must be doing the press junket thing in the UK and maybe a screening for the press and Q&A.

Don't forget to vote for Jake/Dastan for the People's Choice awards!

UltraViolet said...

Everything is good in Gyllenworld, Sunflower! Except for news of a new porject for Lola :) And for all of us. I'd hoped to hear someone ask Jake that, but so far, nada.

We are being spoiled for now, though, and there's more in a new post.
