30 for 30

30 - the natural number following 29 and preceding 31.

30 - the minimum age for United States senators.

30 - the number of tracks on the Beatles' White Album.

30 - the address of Rockefeller Plaza in NYC where SNL is taped.

30 - the second point gained in the game of tennis.

The Frisky compiled a list of 30 things every man should have by the age of 30. Looks like Jake has ticked off quite a few of those already. Yay for Jake! Some examples:

1. A skin care regimen. C’mon guys, healthy complexions aren’t just for metrosexuals!

6. A tailored suit.

10. A trusted barber or hair stylist.

8. A smile he uses generously.

27. A great razor.

30. At least one sex move he’s received lots of positive feedback on.

Or 30 must-have life skills before turning 30. Some more examples:

7. dance a “slow dance” without looking like an idiot

25. hold a baby

28. make dogs and cats love you

29. help someone (an older or ill person, a woman you’re trying to impress, your mother) out of a car
. . .

[Still awaiting this picture]

Finally, to complement the free apps he must already have on his new iPhone 4 (Yelp, Urbanspoon, OpenTable, Shazam) he might be
interested in these essential 30 free apps compiled by TechRadar.

And Jake, no longer will you be able to use the phrase "Don't trust anyone over thirty".


Better late than never

UltraViolet said...

Woo hoo! Fabulous post, FL. I love it. I love all the photo choices, especially "still awaiting this picture." Hee.

Skin care regimen is priceless. Love the dance one. Hold a baby is squee-worthy.

Also, a fun note: L&OD passed $30 million today.

suvee said...

Outstanding post to commemorate Jake's big 30, FL! Hope his next year brings him happiness, lots of love and success (however he defines it).

I have pretty much spent Jake's bd feeling puny (sore throat, cough, fever). But this one...

30. At least one sex move he’s received lots of positive feedback on.

... miraculously revived me! He really does have a lovely backside, doesn't he? :)

Thanks for the L&OD $ update, UV. Is that just U.S., or is it international as well?

bobbyanna said...

Absolutely brilliant post, FL!

Lola said...

Happy Birthday 30th Birthday Jake! I hope he has a fantastic day and year.

Sheba baby said...

Fantastic post FL and he does have a delish tush!

Happy birthday Jake!!

Paula said...

This post is too funny!

I hope you are having a blast today Jake, you deserve it!

Happy Birthday!

UltraViolet said...

Hey, suvee. Hope you feel better. Take a shot of Jarhead Jake and call us in the morning!

The $30 million is domestic. I don't think L&OD has opened anywhere else but Australia, which was just last week. No numbers there yet.

Ditto to all the best wishes for Jake and his 30s :)

mary said...

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Yes, that's Jake ass Mary, drool!

Monica said...

Wow Great post, FL! Good choice of photos!

I love the dance!

Happy birthday, Jake Gyllenhaal!

L&OD passed $30 million today.
That's great!

I watched Tron. Very bad movie. Saves only the great soundtrack of Daft Punk, Jeff Bridges and the cameo of a great actor!

Get Real said...

YAY, what a fantastic Jake!birthday post!!! A+, gold star, FL!! :D :D :D

Monica said...

mary said...

Chica said...

What a great birthday post FL, I hope Jake is still enjoying his day.
I saw Black Swan today. What a daring and over the top movie, I think one critic called it The Red Shoes and crack!

Natalie give an intense/scary performance, one of the best by an actress this uear.

Monica said...

Chica, I'll wait until February to see Black Swan. And I'm so anxious to see this movie.
I read that the movie is a success!!

Sheba said...

Happy birthday Jake. Hope he's enjoying every single second. Well done FL on helping us celebrate.oh and Thank You for the Jarhead 'shot'. I'd forgotten he's also hot (we've not got LAOD yet).

Shondra said...

Viv said...

I am a bad bad fan....I forgot Jake's birthday :(

But,happy birthday,Jake!!! forgive me :)

an intersting video

Jake would like to have sex scenes with Julianne Mooreon screen.
Jake and Julianne Moore ???

Please make it happen!!!

UltraViolet said...

I'm sure Jake will forgive you, Viv :) That is a very fun video. Thanks for the link. Here it is in clickable form.

Should be a lot of UK press stuff coming out. There are other interviews floating around. And you can watch Jake and Anne at the press conference here.

Not sure what defines good for Australia, but it looks good!

bobbyanne said...

Viv, thanks for the cute video. Jake & Anne are the gift that keeps on giving. :)

Hopefully we'll see more new interviews from Oz and the UK as the film rolls on.

(Julianne Moore? Jake always manages to keep it fresh!

(I'm definitely treating myself to Jarhead tonight. It's got a Christmas theme, right?)

The video of Jake on Daybreak this morning in the UK.

FL said...

That was a lot of fun! Nice banter there. There are a couple of different sets of pap pics where Jake is hanging out/chatting with Bart Freundlich so it's interesting he picked Julianne Moore to have screen sex with.

Not sure, but I think the ITV Player is for UK residents only. I wasn't able to play it. :-(

UltraViolet said...

BTW, the press conference video has Jake talking about having sex in his boxers. Just FYI :)

Let's all be thankful we are not trying to take Eurostar today.

FL said...

Holy Effing Crap! But nice to see St. Pancras. :-)

FL said...

BBC Travel Alert

Eurostar not taking new bookings til Xmas eve & asking you not to go to Kings X as there's a 5hr queue!!! cup o'tea?

See above video posted by UV.

bobbyanna said...


UltraViolet said...

It did make me smile to see St Pancras. Good memories for me. But there was no line!

Looks like Jake is not traveling today - still in NYC:

Attention ladies - Jake Gyllenhaal sighting at ABC Kitchen. He is eating lunch, but not with Taylor Swift, haha.

Happy belated birthday Jake, hope it was a great one!!

Maggie and Peter are in Nashville right now according to Twitter sightings so maybe Jake will pop up there.

Tweety said...

A little shopping for his very luckt niece:

I -KNEW- I should have gone to NYC with my brothers today. D just ran into Jake Gyllenhaal at FAO Schwartz.
about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

While Maggie and Peter are in Nashville, hmmm.

Hope he enjoyed his birthday yeaterday!

Monica said...

Do not forget Matilda!

Julianne Moore? Great choice, Jake. She is one of my favorite actresses and it would be a pleasure to see her in a movie with Jake!

Lola said...

Thanks UV i found that interesting, and i wasn't going to watch it until you mentioned sex with boxers:)

I hope Jake gets his neice something great at FAO Schwartz. I winder when Maggie and Peter flew in to Nashville? I hope at least they were able to have a little bit of a birthday celebration with Jake. Are they in Nashville to shoot that country movie Peter is going to star in? I think Maggie has a part in that movie too.

suvee said...

The interview was a good one! Thanks, Viv and UV for the link(s).

Julianne Moore, huh? That's an interesting little tidbit. Well she did do good movie sex in TKAAR!

Oh, and Anne won the Satellite Award for Best Actress - Comedy/Musical. Best Actor - Comedy/Musical went to..... Michael Cera.

Anonymous said...

Maggie and Peter's next project is the play The Three Sisters, a play they will be doing in NY in January-March.

I doubt they are there to shoot a movie Christmas week or even talk about it but I may be wrong.

I don't see any thing like that on his IMDB page.

Sometimes producers put some names of actors to be able to get financing for their movies. But it does not mean they will be in the movie.

I noticed that Roberta Maxwell is in the cast of Three Sisters. She played the mother of Jack Twist in BBM.
Maggie also worked with the actor who played the father of Jack Twist. He was her father in World Trade Center.

Congratulations, Anne!

I saw The Town. I expected more from a movie that received many positive reviews. It was just good.

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Did they see it?

FL said...

Are you talking about the Bill Monroe project that Peter and Maggie will be doing, Monica? That seems to be a go. Maggie gave several interviews where she talked about them doing that film after they finish their run of Three Sisters. My guess is they were in Nashville to do some research. The bulk of the movie will probably be filmed there.

Monica said...

Yes and no.
I did not know these interviews. That looks great! thank you!

bobbyanna said...

From FB:
"Jake Gyllenhaal hangin' with 3 girls at Franny's in Bklyn - where's Taylor?"
39 minute ago

Glad to know the Bill Monroe project is a go, FL.

Monica said...

He is still with that girl? Because I noticed that since that Saturday we had no sighting of them together. And apparently he spent his birthday without her.

Anonymous said...

Sightings of Jake in NY on Friday, Saturday and Monday, but none on Sunday, his birthday unless it was missed.

It doesn't sound like he went swimming in the Artic with the walruses, I bet he just spent the day indoors with family in Brooklyn, a nice quiet birthday.

Anonymous said...

"That Girl" has a name. She also is someone Jake likes so it seems there's a lack of respect for Jake.
Taylor has family too and also a career and there are times they won't be together because they are both doing other things.

UltraViolet said...

Lots of twitter/FB sightings for Jake in NY today. And a few more from FAO Schwarz yesterday. Apparently, he was in the doll section :)

Tweety said...

Jake and a very lucky salesgirl at Paragonsports:

I wouldn't stop smilimg either!

mary said...

thanks for all the sightings i dont have FB or twiiter si rely on you guys for all the sighting to keep me up to date on jake jake must be doing his christmas shopping so i wonder if ramona is getting a doll for christmas :)

UltraViolet said...

That's what we're here for, Mary :)

Thanks for the link, tweety. I was just putting it into the new post :) It's a great pic. And I love the smiling comment.
