IHJ posted some photos of Jake Gyllenhaal at a restaurant with Bono and The Edge last year. The expressions are priceless.

Edge: "Who is this guy?"

Jake: "I don't know if I believe that..."

"Really, Bono? Really?"

"Okay, tell me more."

"Don't make me spit out my wine!"

"I love you."


You can Jake and Anne's arrival and some snippets from their press conference:

And here's an old interview with Jake and Anne from Today Australia. The first part seems familiar, but the "movie star" stuff seems new. But who can remember all of them at this point!

You can watch more of their arrival and a good chunk of the press conference here.

Further down memory lane, here's Jake on Conan, talking about Bono singing "Send in the Clowns:"

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope all the American GBers have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm grateful for the regular posters, occasional commenters and even the lurkers here. And, of course, for this guy:

Enjoy the day, your family and friends, wherever you are!

Video vault

Found this video of Jake Gyllenhaal at the Prince of Persia premiere. This guy's shtick seems to be interviewing people in corridors! But it's always fun to remember the PoP promotion:

Mesmerized by his cardboard alter ego:

Love the look he's giving:

And here's an E! video of the PoP LA premiere:

A brief clip of Jake at the New Eyes for the Needy event held in March:

New Eyes has that great picture of Jake lifting his glasses on their main page now. Smart people!

Band camp

Jake Gyllenhaal was spotted at Watch the Throne last night. No reports of him joining Jay Z and Kanye on stage. Apparently, they didn't need an extra accordion player. Or trombonist.

Here's Jake, back in the spring, taking a much needed break from the rigors of the Railroad Revival Tour:

Here's a brief cameo of Jake on the train - at about seven seconds:

And a photo I hadn't seen before:

I discovered this behind the scenes shot of Jake from his photoshoot for the May, 2001, edition of Vanity Fair:

There was no other information - no anecdotes - but I decided to roll with the Polaroid theme. A couple of Jake Polaroids from the 2005 Toronto Film Festival:

Finally, the Polaroid shots from Love & Other Drugs. I wish they had included these in the DVDs, either as cards of some sort or on the cover art/DVD art. And I wish we got to see more of them. You know they shot dozens.
