Happy New Year!



I hacked into another (totally public) Facebook account and found this great new photo of Jake, posted by photographer Richard D. Cole. Don't know where it's from or why it was taken, but there it is.

I didn't manage a year-end retrospective, but I think the whole Bear Grylls Iceland adventure was my favorite Jake story of the year. This was definitely my favorite post. But the whole ride was a blast, from the first news of it until the hilarious, excited tweets that erupted when the special aired.



It was wonderful to watch Jake's progress through nervousness, excitement, apprehension and fear to sheer joy. His sense of adventure and zeal for life were inspiring. And as you remember, it was the GIFt that kept on giving:





Monica reminded me of the Railroad Revival Tour, another unexpected treat for JAke fans and for Jake himself:



Please feel free to share your favorite Jake moment(s) from 2011.

Finally, I hope everyone has a celebratory night and a happy, healthy new year. Thank you to all for another fun Gyllenyear.

I'm going to steal from Paula C's post, which says it all:

Happy new days
Happy new dreams
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone!

My favorite was The Railroad Revival Tour. Jake on that trip, playing trumpet, was so much fun!

UltraViolet said...

Oh, I forgot the RRT, Monica. I'll have to ad something from that, too! HNY to U2 :)

bobbyanna said...

Great post! The Bear Grylls adventure was amazing!!! I especially love the quotes. ; )

The Railroad Revival Tour was such an unexpected treat! He was having so much fun.

sass said...

Happy New Year everyone!

My favorite Jake time this past year was the Bear Grylls special.

I tried to click through to the photo site but it's off limits now...I use my FB acct but have cut usage down 90% since I quit playing games...who knew...plus you never know when Zuckerberg is going to open private pics and posts to everyone a la 2009.

The photo is haunting, to me. Am I wrong? I feel sadness vulnerability and so much more; I can't look at it more than a minute. I feel my psychic Aunt coming out. :lol :lol

I wish Jake happiness and love in the New Year with whomever he chooses to share his life with.

Happy New Year everyone! I think the Railroad tour was my fave too, we got a candid look at Jake just being Jake having fun. I wish I'd been on that tour with him. I love traveling by train. I wish Jake and everyone here all the best in 2012

thanks UV for all you do (including hacking :D)

Happy New Year I think my favorite Jake moment was also the one with Bear he had such a good time doing that episode but I enjoyed the RRT too

Hello! I am a lurker here... Have been visiting this fantastic website for a long time. (Thanks, UV!) Just thought what better way to introduce myself than to say happy new year to you all! Hope 2012 brings wonderful things to everyone!!!

Paula C. said...

Welcome, Vanessa!

I spent a wonderful night at work, so this 2012 is starting to be good!!

UV, loved seeing my name in the post, I feel somehow important,lol

Favorite Jake 2011 was the SC promotion because he always makes me laugh, the Bear grills cause it was the first time I felt jealous of a rope and the RRT because it was a side of Jake we had not yet seen.

sheba said...

I should have wished you all a very merry peaceful Christmas. I want to wish you all a very happy new year. And joy. Pure joy. I am so thankful for GB, UV, FL and its Gyllenites for this is a place of pure, precious joy. And Jake's joy at the Railroad Revival Tour is my lasting memory of him in 2011. I hope you all experience at least one unexpected serendipitous moment that the memory keeps you warm. As for Jake I hope his search for real everlasting love continues as his mantra 'choose to love'. I need to see you back on the big sceen at least 3 times a year big man is that too much to ask?

Happy New Year again!

UltraViolet said...

Just one more day and holiday madness is over. I'm thoroughly unprepared to go back to the real world. And work is going to be awful for me for the next three weeks.

I can't complain after having most of the last two weeks off. I know a few GBers like Mary and Paua C have had to work the holidays, so I will try to be stoic!

Monica, I saw that info on the FB picture. The guy was asked to take it down. I wonder if I should, too? No one has contacted me about it.

Paula C, poi are important! So glad you and Daniela have joined us over here.

Speaking of which... Welcome, Vanessa. Glad you delurked. Please post anytime. And thank you for the nice words about the blog.

That goes to all of the folks who posted such nice sentiments about GB. i'm glad we have this little corner of the internet to discuss Jake in a fun, respectful way.

Sheba, thanks for that lovely post and lovelier wishes. And no, I don't think three movies a year is too much to ask. I'd settle for two :)

Sass, I don't think the photo is haunting, especially because it was just taken at a party. I think it's just a candid, un-touched-up shot.

thanks UV for all you do (including hacking :D)

LOL, Lily. And thanks :)

UltraViolet said...

He's in LA, Lily. No NY sightings of him at all for the past few days. From today:

LOL! No offense to anyone, but Paula C. wrote the best line I've read lately!

"the Bear grills cause it was the first time I felt jealous of a rope..."

You make me smile!

Just read that the Berlinale will be honoring Meryl Streep.

It's very quiet around here. Banks & gov't offices, schools still closed for the Holiday...which ends today. I think all Mondays should be paid holidays. Then Tuesday can be the new Monday. ; )

Monica said...

She deserves it. She is extraordinary.
Happy that Jake will be there.

Paula C. said...

You are right Monica, she deserves it and it's getting closer, can´t wait to see Jake in a nice suit with that beautiful face shaved walking the berlinale red carpet!

Thank you, Bobbyanna! Here in Portugal schools open tomorrow too,good news because my son is driving me crazy, he spends all day pretending I'm a ninja warrior.

sass said...

Paula, your son sounds wonderful...I miss when my boy was young.

So sorry UV, if I'd known the pic was taken at a party, I could have spared us my wine and beer ramblings. :lol

Daniela said...

Son of Paula C. is a beautiful thing. I am willing that my grow soon, but at the same time I know I'll miss when they were small

I love Meryl Streep, who played the same movie with Jake, it must be so happy

Another Reese interview over at People.com. Apparently the years in between divorcing Ryan and meeting Jim were years of great sadness and fear for America's sweetheart. Interesting.

Anonymous said...

Reese should really be a little classier. It didn't work out, fine. You don't do things like this. She has good PR, but she has no class.

Monica said...

Thanks for the photos link, T!

Reese again?

Monica said...

Ok, I read what she said. What to expect? She will not say good things about Jake.
She just said why she married with Jim, he's a good guy ...
When she was with Jake, she said he was good, he supported her... I remember everyone was compared to Ryan.
This is Reese Witherspoon. She always did it. No surprise.

Next: Taylor Zzzzwift.

Daniela said...

Why is that? because she insisted on talking about what life was like before and after Jim, if everyone knows who come before him, sorry for Jake to have wasted more than two years of his life with her

Daniela said...

Why is that? because she insisted on talking about what life was like before and after Jim, if everyone knows who come before him, sorry for Jake to have wasted more than two years of his life with her

Daniela said...

Sorry, I published two times, delete the second, please!!

Monica said...

I don't think that was a waste. I think he liked her.
They had good times together. It wasn't something forever.

bobbyanna said...

Ugh! I agree, Daniela. I have no respect for her "revised" version of history. I don't think she even considers Jake when she makes these comments. She's referencing her ex-husband's shortcomings, and she's "tone deaf" to how any of it reflects on Jake.

Since she's married to Jim she is about building him up. Her whining about never having anyone "who is good and kind, etc." is a steaming pile of crap.

Her "magical thinking" is so offensive. Unfortunately for her, there's a photogrqaphic record of life with Jake, and her "official position" might marginalize him and minimize their relationship, but it makes her look like a desperate, dishonest & selfish. I wish her no harm, but it's sad that she's so completely lacking in grace.

I'm tired of her and her mediocre career and the transparent hype she resorts to. I only want to look forward to Jake's next projects and I wish him the very best. As Anne Hathaway said, "He's one of the good guys."

OK. done ranting. Sorry. : /

bobbyanna said...

"I don't think that was a waste. I think he liked her.
They had good times together. It wasn't something forever."

You're absolutely right, monica.

Sadly,she's so ungracious she can't even acknowledge that. Even Naomi Watts, married to Liev Schreiber, spoke well of Heath before he passed away.

sass said...

Yeah bobbyanna, but Reese is NO Naomi Watts. Naomi left Sundance when she heard about Heath. She's one of the good ones.

I had a few choice words for that article, ending with my asking her to please try non-personal chat when she does her next movie interview.

When so many female actors are taking on extraordinary roles of late, she makes God knows what, and is obviously upset, at the sometimes negative critical response and lack of audience interest, especially with Water For Elephants, which I have not seen.
That has to be the reason, she talked in an interview, about how awful Robert Pattinson was as a screen lover, with his horrible green mucous filled nose. ( He had an awful cold) Reese, it is not his fault your movie wasn't your best work.
I don't know Reese, nor do I know Jake personally, but I appreciate his behavior... post all his experiences. That Jake was raised right is apparent, and yeah he IS one of the good ones.

Mary said...

Well said sass I have no further comment on Reese all I can say is that Jake is one of the good ones

Mary said...

Stephanie has the pictures up of Jake leaving the resturant where he got the parking ticket it was in venice on jan 1

Anonymous said...

I saw what that woman (who shall remain nameless) said about meeting her husband in Elle mag. all I can says is Jake is better off without someone like her

Lily

Anonymous said...

Yes, lots of photographic evidence. Jake with the kids and how they seemed to enjoy being with him. Lots of pictures of Reese and Jake laughing and arms around each other and how she went to see him at least 2 times, maybe 3, when filming Prince of Persia. Long hours to get there and back - just to spend maybe 5 days there.
When making movies they seemed to find time to see each other in respective cities. Even tho they did not speak to the press much about each other there was a time when she did speak about that being a good time in her life.
Maybe he is the one that ended it and felt it couldn't go any further as a relationship. Could that be why she has seemed to act like those almost 3 years didn't exist?

UltraViolet said...

It's silly not to refer to Reese by name. Other than that, I'm going to try to ignore the latest drivel. As Monica said, it was an important time for Jake, but it wasn't forever.

From a story about the person who styled JAke and Anne for EW:

What's the difference in how you approach a shoot now versus when you were working with Rachel Zoe?
When I worked with Rachel, we traveled a lot and there was a lot a lot of stuff. That was the way that she worked, she liked to have a lot of options, and that's how I learned to put a shoot together.

I remember my first shoot by myself was an Entertainment Weekly cover with Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, and they ended up naked on the cover. I was staying at a friend's house in the Financial District, and her living room was literally filled -- I had every single men's item, every single women's item. And she was like, "Babe. You have to learn how to edit." I got to the shoot and there were, like, nine racks for each of them, and stuff was still coming in during the shoot. We actually got a beautiful shot -- clothed -- inside, but after that shoot, I was like, "I don't want to travel like that anymore. I really just want to travel with the things that I want."

Daniela said...

To conclude, I spoke in waste in the sense that he could have "given" to someone who at least refers to it, even after finishing, as a person who made ​​me well, I do not know what's going on in the head him, but I would be sad to read or know that while I was happy with that person, that person pretend that time did not exist.
It may be silly, but it is my honest opinion.
End of discussion

Thanks UV, it's fun to read about how the EW fashion shoot evolved. I love behind the scenes stuff!

Thanks for the link, monica.

If Jake had to win an Oscar, then Reese will declare: OH Jake has been the greatest love of my life, and I was so devastated when our enormous love finished
Jim? Jim who?

UltraViolet said...

Daniela, I think we all have a negative opinion of Reese at this point. She hasn't been very classy in what she has leaked or implied. I just think it's silly to pretend she didn't/doesn't exist, that's all.

It's a tough subject. I think we're all dealing with it rationally. As we've all said, we just don't want to dwell on it.

Happy New year!

Just got back from a much needed vacation with my BF and for some reason I had a problem posting from my new iphone:(

My favorite Jake moment of 2011 was Source Code and followed by Jake's adventure with Bear Grylls. The joy and excitement on his face was such a thrill to watch.

I see that Jake isback in L.A.!!

I have nothing to add regarding Mrs. Toth :(

YOU GUYS. I MET JAKE GYLLENHAAL. MY LIFE IS COMPLETE. I CAN DIE HAPPY. YOU DONT UNDERSTAND HOW HAPPY I AM.

i was standing in line at the movie theater and i was just looking around and i turn and hes right there and i just froze staring at him lol i felt bad too. and then he smiled at me and was like “hi there!” and i was like “hiiiii, i like, love you” and he was “why thank you! you’re so nice!” and i didnt wanna ask for a picture cos im sure he was busy and all “and then we got our food and he was like “enjoy your movie”
:D he’s super nice and unf hes so adorable


From JustJared comments today:

I just saw Jake and Maggie eating dinner last night at Angeli Cafe on Melrose. They both looked great! I actually like the beard. Maggie looks like she’s about 6 months pregnant. Her little girl was there too and she’s so cute!

UltraViolet said...

From a story about Sundance celebrity encounters:

While waiting for a table at Zoom, Redford’s restaurant, Mary Ann sat on a bench between her husband, Larry, and another man. Kris, standing nearby, leaned over and whispered “Mary Ann, you’re sitting next to Jake Gyllenhaal.”

“I said ‘What?’” Mary Ann reenacts, raising her voice like she did in the noisy lobby. Again, “Kris said ‘Jake Gyllenhaal’s sitting next to you.’ I said ‘What?’ again, she started to say ‘Jake Gyllenhaal ...’ and I yelled ‘Jake Gyllenhaal! Where?!’ He was right there! He was adorable, and posed for pictures.”

I'm wondering the same thing, last year he presented the award, if he goes this year is to show support to Michelle and since he is in LA it would be great , I love to see those two.

Shondra said...

Wow, time has sure flown, I can't believe we are talking about the The Palm Springs FF already! I would love to see Jake appear to support Michelle.

I think Jake's RRT was my fav as well, he looked so carefree and happy, i'm reslly surprised that he doesn't have his own band, he loves music so much.

I don't know if I will ever get used to Grizzly Adams Jake, it covers up his beautiful face, sigh.

I hope Jake and everyone here on GB had a very Happy New year.

Not if you tell me where you are..

He's been filming at Alamo Square, snacking at Tartine, and buying jeans at Taylor Stitch... I can almost just smell him, he will be ours...

I love this!! I did Zodiac with Jake a few years ago; he's great!! Be gentle....


filming??

If that tweet is accurate that's some great news, both the filming and buying new jeans but my question is filming what??

He came to the booth where I work at the ferry plaza farmers market with his lady friend. She bought a couple things and he kind of hung back, but my god, he is just as beautiful in person. Apparently he is from the bay area, so it makes sense. I can’t believe he SMILED AT ME though!!!

Totally made my week. Maybe my month.


I think the week and the month are the same thing at this point :)

Thanks, Bob.

Berenice Bejo, The Artist actress, was in Knight's Tale with Heath. She was the friend of Heath's love interest in the film.

Mary said...

thanks for all the tweet updates guys Jake sure loves SF

Anonymous said...

love the tweets, though I don't know what someone meant by Jake being from the bay area? he was born and grew up in LA.

I'd love to go to San Fran, I have some relatives that live there.

For those of you who care, the interview done by Reese is a ploy to keep Jim Toth from leaving the marriage. My sources (not bloggers) tell me that Jim is on the way out of the marriage. Shes just not a very nice person never has been since childhood.

The Italian Oven poster was joking:

"no not really... but I swear on my life it's his twin haha #sosexy"

(It's a restaurant chain with locations in Atlanta and Pennsylvania, but not SF or LA.)

UltraViolet said...

I think that was a lookalike on that last tweet.

The foodiehunter guy wrote about the experience of seeing Jake and Anne here.

I didn't watch the Palm Springs FF. Was the tribute to Michelle well done?

I saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yesterday and liked it much more than I thought I would. I wonder what it's like for people who haven't read the book, if it gets confusing. It was nice to have the book to draw from when watching.

Daniel Craig doesn't even bother trying a Swedish accent, but he looks fantastic and is lovingly filmed by Fincher. It made me ling for Jake to have a role like this, a long, intense movie where you get to see all different aspects of the character he plays.

I think Rooney Mara did an incredible job. She's not the Lisbeth that was in my head, but I don't think any actress could have been. It's not a great movie, but then again, it's not a great book. It is a good movie of a good book, very skillfully done.

Extra said...

I was surprised how much I liked The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo UV. Daniel and Rooney were fantastic. I didn't read the book so I didn't have a fixed image on the characters in my head.

Excellent, intense direction by Fincher, but the scenes of violence may not be everyone's cup of tea.

Didn't Marcus and Sons have their tour filmed for a documentary? I'm sure that Jake will be in that, can't wait!

Maybe the tribute to Michelle at the PS FF is on youtube od their site UV, don't think it aired.

Tweety said...

Lots of funDonnie Darko tweets, it's airing in the UK!

Jake is still on SF:

It was Hollywood in Hayes Valley today...Jake Gyllenhaal came into the store and John Waters was walking the sidewalks.

bobbyanna said...

I saw the livestream of the PSIFF presentation last night. Michelle's comments were heartfelt about her role and MM. She was obviously nervous so she read them, and read them very well.

Kenneth Brannaugh's presentation was littered with cliches(!). The film clips of her movies was well done and included the BBM scene of ALma in the doorway discovering Ennis & Jack kissing.

Thanks Extra & UV, for your reactions to Dragon Tattoo. I read the books and saw all the Swedish versions. Haven't seen Fincher's, altho I've heard it's very good. Noomi Rapace was so good as Lisbeth Salander, and it's such an intense story,I'm still not ready...: )

bobbyanna said...

Not to spam, but I guess Jake's back in LA:
"Jake Gyllenhaal was on my plane coming to Burbank."

bobbyanna said...

And one more from a SF fashion blogger: (I'm almost afraid to believe it)

"The trip to the barber was more exciting than normal, since we just missed Jake Gyllenhall getting a shave, apparently"

Mary said...

fingers crossed that Jake got a shave well i leave on my cruise tomorrow so I guess ill have to wait till i get back to find out if he did or not ill be back on friday

Monica said...

UV, I have not seen TGWDT. I saw Moneyball, 50/50 and Beginners.
I really liked Moneyball. Best performance of Brad and if the Oscar doesn't go to Gary Oldman, I'll be happy if Brad Pitt win.
I liked 50/50. It was exciting.

Beginners is my favorite of what I saw. It goes beyond the work of Christopher Plummer.
It is a very beautiful film. It's a great little movie.
I fall in love again with Ewan McGregor.

Mary said...

I really liked momey ball too brad pitt did a great job

sass said...

Mary, Have a wonderful trip! Enjoy yourself every minute.

Paula C. said...

I Saw TGWTDT and loved it, like Extra said I didn't read the books so I went with a free mind,the scenes were intense especially the rape scene, Great job from Craig and Mara.

Monica, I loved Beginners too,Plummer was extraordinary and Ewan and the adorable dog, I wanted to bring the dog home!!

Bobbyanna, I know it sounds really bad but I hope there is some paps photos of Jake soon, I want to see that shaved face.

Mary, enjoy your trip!

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

A shaved Jake?? We will soon find out if he is back in L.A., the paps always track him down.

I have not seen the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet, but I saw Moneyball and My Weekend with Marilyn and both Michelle and Brad give great performances, especially Michelle.

Have a fun cruise Mary!

bobbyanna said...

Mary, have a wonderful, fun time on your cruise!!!

Paula C. I don't think "it sounds really bad"! I want to see some photos of Jake too!('Specially if he shaved!)

I have to agree with monica, the Beginner was beautiful, above & beyond Christopher Plummer, who was wonderful. Ewan McGregor steals your heart.

OMG, Michelle was incredible! I loved her! YouTube has clips of the real Marilyn in scenes from TP&TS and Michelle nailed it. The singing and dancing was a bonus.

I loved Brad and Moneyball, too. If you haven't seen Young Adult, Charlize does a great job with her character. Very authentic.

Some people debate which is more difficult: to play a character based on a real person, or create a character from nothing. I think it's kind of a circular discussion, bcz each has their own challenges.

Daniela said...

I also want photos!!
I confess I was already getting used to the beard

Monica said...

Jayne Mansfield's Car, film directed by Billy Bob Thornton, is going to Berlin. The film was selected for the competition.
And the film 'In The Land of Blood and Honey', directed by Angelina Jolie, will have a special presentation.

Anonymous said...

have fun on the cruise, Mary. I'd always wanted to do that.

Jake shaved! (oh please don't toy with me!) I can't wait to see that beautiful face again.

Well, apparently Jake Gyllenhaal likes to hike and is polite. He stood to the side and let me and Jane pass him saying it was "no problem." "

bobbyanna said...

Well, according to various entertainment sites, it seems Jake is going to be a presenter at the Golden Globes this Sunday! Now I believe the tweet about shaving.
Natalie Portman will also present.

Anonymous said...

yay about him presenting at the GG

Monica said...

Thank you, Bob.
When I read this twitter about shave, I was wondering if he would be one of the presenters of the Golden Globe.

Sheba Baby said...

Yay!! What a way to start the New Year. A freshly shaved Jake presenting st the GG awards!! Looking forward to seing him all gusied up on the red carpet, he sure cleans up well :)

Have a great vacation Mary!

Paula C. said...

Yes, Yes!! Good news.

Bobbyanna, do you know what award is he going to present?

Let's hope he does the red carpet!

Jake Gyllenhaal Leaves CAA For WME

Not long after leaving his longtime manager, actor Jake Gyllenhaal has left his longtime agency. He grew up, so to speak, at CAA as one of Kim Hodgert’s first clients. I’m assured his departure is not because of anything she has done. “He needed to make a change after 15 years. He has enormous respect for CAA.” He will now be repped by WME’s Patrick Whitesell.

Anonymous said...

NYTimes Q&A Patrick Whitesell

Ari Emanual's partner at WMA. He sounds good for Jake.

Paula C. said...

Thanks Monica ,I was expecting this move to WME after Maggie did the same. I can only wish the best of luck and good working material for Jake, he deserves it.

The new agent seems like he knows what he's doing, Affleck, Damon , Bale and now Jake, that's what I call a damn good client list.

bobbyanna said...

I'm doing a "Happy Dance!" SO glad Jake has turned the page, and making a fresh start!! This is wonderful news! Ari Emanuel's got an awesome rep! Jeremy Piven's character, Ari Gold on Entourage is based on Ari Emanuel. He's a legend! : ) Yaaay!

I thought it said he was being repped by Patrick Whitesell.

bobbyanna said...

Yes, "anon" but Whitesell and Emanuel co-own and they're equal. Jake is repped by Whitesell, but Ari wields a lot of influence. They work together.

Viv said...

Oh~~~I am so happy for Jake.
Actually I am not planning to watch GG Award this year,now I have to.XD

Monica said...

is not because of anything she has done.

She wasn't doing a good job for him lately.
Looking for Jake's career, after the release of POP, he signed for just one film that was End of Watch.
Laod and Source Code were before the release of POP.

bobbyanna said...

You're right monica. I attribute the lack of roles in equal parts of Jake being offered parts he turned down, as well as not being offered parts that went to someone else.

For example, and I'm not saying this happened, but if you're Jake and you're offered a part in a Denzel Washington movie about a runaway train, and also given a script like Source Code to read, which one would you be attracted to?

If you had a chance to work with Katherine Heigl in a romcom, or with Natalie Portman and James Sheridan, what would you do? These are often the kind of choices actors face. A crapshoot.

A good agent will know what's "in the pipeline" and really strategize how to best position his/her client. It can be very discouraging. I think Jake's had a rough couple of years.

It's the whole package IMO. He's been let down by his PR people, and his manager too. Sometimes when an actor has problems with his team, he overcompensates and starts second guessing them, and being his own agent/manager/PR person/Producer.

This signals a "turning the page" and a new beginning. I'm glad he did it. I am very excited and very optimistic. I hope he has the a comfort and trust he didn't have any longer with CAA.

UltraViolet said...

Big news. Hopefully a turning point for the better in Jake's career.

New post for the new team, though there are no new photos.
