It's National Kiss Day

So let's celebrate!

No, no, no. Not that kind of Kiss day.

That's better, but apparently, July 6 is International Kiss Day.

That's right. Today is National Kiss Day. So let's look at some Jake Gyllenhaal kisses and commentary, mostly made in the USA:

This woman knows how to take advantage of a situation!

She's always been very tongue-in-cheek has Gemma Arterton.

So there was a surprise in store for co-star Jake Gyllenhaal as they filmed their love scene for new flick Prince of Persia.

The Kent girl, 23, told us: "There's an unspoken no-tongues rule on set. But I got so carried away it kind of slipped out. Everyone said I was lucky to be snogging him, but he's the lucky one."

Honestly, can you blame her?

Gemma joins Emmy Rossum in the line of very smart woman who've seized the day - and the Gyllenmouth.

"I went over to him and said, 'Look, I know it's 9 a.m., but is it OK if I kiss you?' " Rossum recalls. When he consented ("He said, 'It's never too early!' "), she obliged. "I knew if I didn't do it, it would seem like I was scared. And I wanted to kiss him. He's very, very cute."

A history of Jakes movie kisses proves at least one thing...

... Jake kisses shouldn't be filmed in the dark.

If you prefer your kisses in motion:

WOW is it getting hot? How come some of his kisses are so DARK? I mean I can hardly make out him and Heath and I don't know what movie the other shot is from. I can barely make out it's him and I have no idea who the girl is

but HOT


Monica said...

Wonderful images, and of course Brokeback kiss is my favorite!

mary said...

Mine too monica

Mary said...

Stephanie has posted the pics of Jake and Busy leaving a resturant Tuesday night

Paula said...

I had no idea that it was national kiss day, I still have time to celebrate!

Boy does that photo of KISS Bring back memories, most of them are blurry sorry to say:)

Jake is one of the better onscreen kissers, love Jake and Heath and Jake and Annie, talk about heat!

I always love looking at the 2 iconic images from WWII from the US and Paris, thanks do much for including them on this post UV!

sass said...

This is a wonderful post...TY for so many kisses.

UltraViolet said...

You're all welcome for all the kisses. If only there were more!

Lily, the really dark shot is from Moonlight Mile. I really liked Jake's love scenes and kisses with Ellen Pompeo. What I could see of them!

LOL about Kiss, Paula. And I love the two iconic photos, as well. Would love to see Jake in a cool, black&white, retro photo shoot or period piece movie, with kissing!

I think the MM kisses are my favorite. Of the two BBM kisses, I prefer the SNIT kiss.

Chica said...

National kiss day, who knew!!!

What a wonderful collage of Jake's kisses, love the video.

Good to see Matilda's Godparents hanging out!

UltraViolet said...

Forgot to say some might have missed my latest reply on the previous post. There's a YouTube video with footage of Jake, Rashida, Atticus, et al., from Cafe Gratitude.

UltraViolet said...

Chica, I was so happy to see the video. There used to be a really good yt video with all of Jake's movie kisses, but I never saved it, sadly. This one is also good, but it's missing some. As that old one would be by now, as well. I wish I had vidding talent, but I don't.

Anonymous said...

I couldn't see the video of JAke and Rashida.


UltraViolet said...

You mean the video didn't work, Lily? Or you couldn't find the link?

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Ah, I missed National Kiss day but these images of Jake's kisses and the video will extend the day!

I have to LOL at the KISS photo, I can't believe how popular they were!!

I love the snit kiss to as well as Jake and Natalie in Brothers, that was more sweet than hot.

I can see the Jake and Rasida video fine UV, thanks!

Matt Damon Envies Jake Gyllenhaal's Bald Head

Freshly bald Matt Damon loves his new look. What he doesn't love is having his shaved head compared to Jake Gyllenhaal's.

"Wow, I try not to envy, but I have to say Jake's got a damn good-looking head," Damon, 40, told PEOPLE at Wednesday's New York premiere of his new movie about a killer virus, Contagion. "He sure does have a beautiful round head."

"Normally you say, 'That's a beautiful head of hair, but that's a beautiful head he's got,' " Damon says laughing. "Gyllenhaal definitely gets the blue ribbon for the best bald head over me."

I saw the video too. Thank you.

bobbyanna said...

Hope Jake had a better National Kiss Day then I did ! LOL! I'm loving the videos and pics. Heath and Jake in BBM hold a special place for me too, and the SNIT was my favorite of those. And yeah, Jake & Anne generated heat. Definitely. But I can't pick an absolute favorite. I will say I was disappointed he didn't get more "kiss" time with Gemma. Altho the time I saw it in the theatre when they finally did make contact, the audience applauded, which was fun.; )

Extra said...

Love this post! What a great way to start the weekend. I always loved the WWII photos too and can just imagine Jake posing like that in b7w too.

The Rendition kiss, yum! And it has to do more with their position than the actual kiss!

Fans are so creative and the kissing video is fun. The SNIT scene from BBM will always hold a special place in my heart and I love the Jake and Gemma kiss.

UltraViolet said...

OONP, the Kiss photo just makes me laugh! It's hilarious/frightening.

Bobbyanna, I hope you're having a better day, post-Kiss :) It was fun when people applauded at the kiss - that happened several times at screenings I wnet to.

Someday, maybe we'll see more on a DVD?

Monica, that Matt Damon story is too funny. There are a bunch of links to a radio poll, if you're in a voting mood.

Extra, I love the Rendition kisses, bathroom and bed. Wish we had gotten to see more of that, too.

Mary said...

Yea i love the MATT DAMON story too

Tweety said...

"I want to rock and roll all night and party every day"!!! What would the 80's be w/o KISS!

A lot of his kissing scenes do appear dark but I can still make out who he is kissing.

The images are gorgeous and I love the video.

The Matt/Jake bald tweets are too funny,but sorry Matt, neither you nor Jake look good bald IMO.

Jake looked better bald in Jarhead.

BBM kisses are among my favorite kisses. Their kisses were so full of love, caring for each other. *sigh*
It looks as if the rain might be coming back today or tomorrow.
I went nosing's so much fun...and read this not so kind article about RR. I'm no fan of Tina Brown but this article is tough. I'm just happy I've never read such an awful downer article about Jake.
Because if she did publish a similar article I'd march on Newsweek headquarters.:lol
Thank goodness folks love. love. love. love Jake in NYC. YAY!!

I watched the entire tape today and he's the best...kisser in the entire world...if I do say so myself. :) yummm


How to Save RR's Career

Off to the market :)

T said...

Hey Guys

Steph over at IHJ has some pics of him leaving a sushi restaurant, Im trying not to drool but the boy can rock a white shirt & is that a script i see tucked under his arm - fingers crossed x

i'm pretty sure jake gyllenhaal is sitting across from me..."

Tweety said...

I still can't get any decent Jake tweets so thanks so much anon!

Tweety said...

Oh and yay for Jake with looks like a script in these pics, thanks for the heads up T!

UltraViolet said...

Looks like Jake is in Berkley, with the previous twitter sighting and now this:

Jake Gyllenhaal is at Cafe Fanny drinking apple juice.

Tweety, it is hard to find anything these days, isn't it.

T, Jake does look good. And even better with the script. As long as it's for something new and not EoW reshoots!

Sass, sadly, I could see someone writing a similar story about Jake, though with SC as his most recent movie, he's in slightly better shape than RR. Though he doesn't have a movie like Safe House coming up the way RR does. Oh, how I wish Jake had gotten that role.

Hopefully you won't have to march on Tina Brown's office anytime soon :)

Sass, Hollywood is spending millions in RR and he has not returned the $$$. That's why articles like this are being written about him. And he has two more blockbusters to the next year.

Mary, Chez Panisse is in Berkeley , but he may also have gone to visit relatives or friends. I hope he's having a great time.

UltraViolet said...

New post :)

Monica, what other blockbuster does RR have next year?
