From the Liqiteria tweeter:

he is a hairy faced sexy mountain man. he turned around and took his sunglasses off and i took a step back and almost yelled.

And another:

And he apparently knew about caviar express line RT @JacquieLH: Stood next to Jake Gyllenhaal at @LoxPopuli. Seems he's a regular=awesome

Merry Christmas!

UltraViolet said...

Thank you to everyone for the nice words yesterday. And thanks for hanging out here and making this a fun and happy Jake place.

Hope we all get what we want for Christmas for ourselves and for Jake: happiness.

Oh, yeah, and more great parts in great movies for Jake :)

Josie said...

Hear, hear UV on Jake getting more great parts in great movies!!!

Merry Christmas to all my fellow Gyllenbabblers, I love this place so much!!

Monica said...

Merry Christmas to all!

Source Code was one of the most pirated movie of the year:
The Top 10 Most Pirated Movies of 2011

UltraViolet said...

Off to tackle the Christmas tail of relatives. Hope everyone's having a merry Christmas/fun Sunday.

Interesting list, Monica! Top 5 for SC. Can't believe it had more than Harry Potter. I hope Duncan is proud, lol.

Forgot one tweet from yesterday:

I loved the Xmas video with Jake wearing a santa hat. I hope we hear about a new project soon.

I am guessing he'll be doing something with the awards season (presenting. I wish Source Code had been nominated)

Love the videos, thanks!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!

^^ it's was me.

I am guessing he'll be doing something with the awards season

I think not. Season award is for those who are promoting a movie and for the nominees.

Jake will be in Berlin for two weeks. And during that period, we will have a press conference with the jury and pictures every day.

Mary said...

Well i had aterrible busy day at work today but had anice christmas eve with my family at least im off tomorrow to get some rest hope everyone had a good day

Paula C. said...

Mary, get your well deserved rest!
My Christmas day at work was calm, maybe it's not the right word to describe a emergency room, but it was a lot better than i expected, I'm off this next 3 days to relax, but I can´t stop thinking I've to work new year's eve as well, dam it! With luck i'll be there on Carnival too!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas day.

Monica, I can't wait to see all that press stuff for the Berlinale, That means the beard as less than two months to live, also with Jake being in Berlin, I feel closer to him :)

Extra said...

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas, I'm off today too Mary, glad that you got to spend x-mas Eve with your family.

New Year's Eve Paula C! At least you have the next 3 days off to relax.

I never tire of seeing Jake in his Santa gear from Jarhead, thanks for the very sexy x-mas gift UV!!

Yeah, Jake probably won't be seen much during this awards season, if at all. Looking forward to the Berlin FF.

bobbyanna said...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I'm beyond exhausted,so I'm relaxing today.

((((mary))) & ((((Paula C.))))

I'm also really looking forward to Jake's participation in the Berlinale! (I sincerely hope we'll be able to see that beautiful face, too! and I hope people @ the festival are good tweeters!: ) )

monica, what you say is very true, about people promoting movies, or being nominees. I think it's a long shot, but still possible that he might present for one of the shows. I 'm not very optimistic tho, so I'm glad he accepted the invitation to serve on the jury.

bobbyanna said...

FYI: Indiewire posted a list of movies they thought were awful -it wasn't "scientific," just an internal staff list. But they posted it on their site, and SC was on it! I commented. I hope other will too, if they get a chance.

Mary said...

Paula C we have something in common then except I work on a medical/surgical floor.

UltraViolet said...

Happy Boxing Day! I hope everyone is recovering with a stress-free day. Especially Mary and Paula C.

Jake is apparently at Bubby's:

Oh you know, just having brunch with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Bobbyanna, that is really annoying about Indiewire. And Monica, I didn't realize there are daily press conferences for the Berlinale. Yay!

bobbyanna said...

OOPS! My apologies! It wasn't Indiewire. It was wired.com. Here's the link. (It's still annoying.)

Mary said...

Thanks UV but I will get to really relax when I go on my Mexican cruise Jan 9 I cant wait I have never been on a cruise before.

Daniela said...

I am outraged by this list, I gave my opinion about it, actually 2 I guess I did not write the first right and put the second to explain

Twitter said...

Dear Jake Gyllenhaal, please stop making faces at the baby, you're making my ovaries explode.

Jake Gyllenhal was at Bubby's Tribeca for brunch this morning looking very Grizzy Adams-Incognito.

Mary do you have room for me on your cruise? I've never been on one either :D

I like the Grizzly Adams reference to Jake.

Lily

Paula C. said...

Here's another volunteer to join the Mexican cruise.

Imagine all of us going on a cruise and having Jake on board with us :)

UltraViolet said...

Did Jake go skiing for the day?

Just met Jake Gyllenhaal in Vermont.
2 hours ago

I got to the bottom of the mountain and saw him talking to a ski worker

UltraViolet said...

I'd rather go on a cruise than go skiing!

Anonymous said...

I'd rather go on a cruise too, I'm not much of a snow person (unless Jake wants to keep me warm. I know he knows how to build a cave for us, he must have learned a lot from Bear in the wilderness)

Lily

Daniela said...

Sometimes you girls engage a conversation that I have no idea where it started. What is this cruise?

Mary said...

Wouldnt it be fun if we could all go on a cruise together:)

interesting if Jake is in Vermont never heard of him going sking before before maybe its for the first time my mother is from Vermont

Daniela said...

Oh, wait, you are all invited to a cruise because Mary goes to one?
If are right, I would not even if Jake was this idea of ​​being long at sea, sky or on the road is unbearable for me lol

Monica said...

UV, I think that will occur only one conference in Berlin to the jury. But we'll have pictures and I think some interviews with jake.

Dani, Mary goes to a cruise. Good trip, Mary! Enjoy!

I would love to go to the snow. No snow where I live.

Daniela said...

As always, thank Monica
Great cruise for you Mary:)

Extra said...

A cruise sounds wonderful Mary! I never been on one but I would prefer that than going skiing for the holidays, too much cold/snow for me here and a nice cruise would be right up my alley.

I hope Jake is enjoying himself in VT.

bobbyanna said...

I went on my first cruise a few years ago. You'll loved it, mary!!! It's wonderful!

Jake skiing in Vermont! Sounds like fun! I'm definitely not a ski person. I used to love ice-skating. Not very good at it, but it was fun!

sass said...

TY for the new address for Wired. Of course, like you Daniela, I went right over there and gave them a piece of my mind.
I tried to do that at the old addy but couldn't...now I know why. I'm exhausted.
The best that reviewer can think of to compare Jake and SC is to DD. Has he not heard of BBM? Where exactly does this cretin live?
I gave him SC stats, and told him I was removing him from my FB "like" list. :lol I'm sure he cared about that :)
How he can rate this movie along side the awful Adjustment Bureau, which was one hot mess of a movie, is beyond me, and I told him so.

Mary, enjoy your cruise and other babblers take as many ski trips as you please, and tweet us now and then:)

Tweety said...

Hope everyone here at GB had a Happy Christmas!

I ate and drank too much, good thing I had off Monday and today, LOL!!!

Have fun on your cruise Mary and I hope Jake stays safe and has fun on his skiing trip in Vermont.

I left my comments on that site too, thanks Bobbyanna.

So Sc was one of the worst films of the year? Did they actually see the film? Unbelieveable.

Anonymous said...

I don't think these people actually SAW Source Code, either that or they were watching it with their eyes closed. It kept me at the edge of my seat. I love traveling by train and while I would love to be on a train with Jake, I wouldn't have wanted to be on THAT train.

Last year when I was traveling on Amtrak up to Boston I saw someone sitting across from me who looked, at least from the back, like Jake. When he stood up he had the same body type. Had sunglasses sitting on top of his head. He was still a good looking guy even when I did get to see his face. I had allowed myself to think it was Jake, It was a nice fantasy while it lasted

Lily

bobbyanna said...

It was nice to see the comments supporting SC! I loved sass' "bye, bye, wired."

I think websites post these lists and "troll posts" to generate controversy because it increases (revenue)site traffic.

I'm looking out at the big, chunky snowflakes. Three inches is predicted. "Winter is coming!" : ) Guess I need to go pick up my "vintage" snow blower.
It was feeling sickly, so I had it in for a "tune up."

Saw "Young Adult" yesterday. It was well done. Charlize did a painfully realistic job with her character.

That was a quick trip to VT (if he was there )

Monica said...

I think he was not there. It was strange, because in the morning he was in New York and then quickly skiing in Vermont.

I found two old videos that I do not remember seeing. An interview in Cannes and another from Moscow

It's so good to read these twitters about Jake, especially when they are funny, like the girl who thought of following him haha and when he shows that he is a nice guy, but at the same time gives a longing to see him

Good one, bobbyanna. Thanks to everyone for all the sightings. And thanks for the video links, Monica. I had seen the Cannes one before but not the Moscow clip. I loved it. Further proof that Moscow was the best.

Also, the Cannes interview was a prime example of Gyllenbabble!

Monica said...

Moscow was the best, as in Cannes.
I remember the red carpet of Zodiac and that interview for that television show, wow, Jake was very sexy and charming.

I know its a goosip mag but life and style had their list of the 10 best movies of 2011 and Source Code ws #3

Source Code deserves more.

I saw a twitter from yesterday saying that Maggie and Peter were on a flight to LA:
My sis just texted me that Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard were on her flight to LA. I'm jeaalous. (typo intentionaal).

Anonymous said...

I'm convinced Jake must have his own place or sublet in NYC.

SC also made MTV honarable mentions for movies of the year as selected by their staff.

Sc also made #6 as voted by fans/members of some Flixchart for the year.

Wow! So glad others loved this movie! YAY! I still read Moviemom though me boy is a man...SC ties with ADJ Bureau for # 10..
I knew SC was a vvvv good movie, really glad my movie instincts remain pretty good...love abounds...

10. ”The Adjustment Bureau”/”Source Code” We were lucky to have two smart and very romantic thrillers this year, with Matt Damon as a politician drawn to a dancer despite the best efforts of mysterious men in hats who “adjust” circumstances and Jake Gyllenhaal as a military officer sent back in time to catch a bomber..

SC is turning up on a lot of very credible lists of top movies. I just wish it had a shot at one of the top AMPAS best picture nominees! I think BAFTA nominating ballots went out a couple of days ago.

If I'm not mistaken, I think Peter starts work on a movie very soon in L.A.

Monica said...

In a film about Linda Lovelace. Filming began last week in Los Angeles.
I hope that Peter receives recognition at some point. He's an great actor.

You are paranoiac!

Anonymous said...

Now convinced that Jake came back to LA to sell his home last week. He has permanently moved to NYC which is good for him. I think he has outgrown (as a person) LA. I like NYC Jake better, whether he smiles or not, he seems more content. He can breathe without paps and his fans alike judging him. And yes some of his fans do judge him, seeing him on the movie screen is all that he owes his fans.

Daniela said...

How do you know he sold his home in Los Angeles? He may well have bought in NY, but did not have to sell the other, it may have many jobs in Los Angeles

Mary said...

If Jake brought a place in NYC which i tend to think he did with him sending so much time there lately , I think he would keep his place in LA

UltraViolet said...

LOL at the pearl clutching. The photo was posted on the Jake Gyllenhaal Facebook page. Nothing was hacked or stolen. But by all means, alert the authorities!

Hope everyone is enjoying the second-to-lat day of 2011.

bobbyanna said...

OK. Here's my "big" (not) Jake story. : ) A friend was kind enough to get me a ticket for the Gala screening of Rendition. There were four of us. We were way up in the rafters at Thompson Hall, but we were there, and we saw everything very well.

Before the movie started, there was a rope line inside the theatre lobby right next to the red carpet. As the VIPs walked passed, (Reese W., Gavin Hood, etc.) Jake came thru, and I very, very lightly tapped his elbow. He turned towards me, and I said, "I saw the movie at an earlier screening today, and it was excellent! It was really, really good!" And he nodded, smiled, and said...as he rushed away, "Awww, thank you! Thank you SO much! That's great!"

That's it. Not a big deal at all...but still... ; )

He has been kind however:)

and I very, very lightly tapped his elbow.

Beautiful? Yeah. He is. He really is. : )

If you go to IHJ gallery, and go "Public Appearances" then click on "Premieres" Toronto Film Festival, 2007, you can see exactly how incredible he looks that night. There was a huge crowd across the street and in front of the theatre, but we were inside. I think Clooney's movie was also showing that night,or Pitt? after Jake's movie ended. Don't really remember too much.

Anonymous said...

I have seen! oh God! The most beautiful man in the world :)

Monica said...

Jake always looks great on the red carpet.

I don't understand all this talk about New York and Los Angeles. Jake was always between NY and LA.
There are several pictures of him in these two cities over the years.
In fact, he goes to LA, NY and Martha's Vineyard. I think last year he spent the summer on Martha's Vineyard.

Anonymous said...

Bobbyanna I went to IHJ and he does look hot. I liked the black polka dot tie and the vest look. I enjoy you're getting to meet him and speak to him if only for a few seconds.

I was wondering if Jake was in NY or LA, I guess he's still in LA (hence the photo of him on a subway)

I don't think Jake would give up his place in LA, as an actor I think it is important for him to have a base in LA. Heath had kept a home there (bought Ellen G's Treehouse home and kept it even though he lived in Brooklyn) Jake has said, in the past, that Calif was his home. But he's lived in NY before and his family is in NY, so I think he likes both coasts. imo.

and UV I had no idea that hacking was one of your talents :P (Trolls, gotta love em....NOT!)

Happy New Year everyone!

Anonymous said...

I want to wish everyone a safe New Years. I hope Jake has a happy one too, whichever coast he's on. I don't understand the whole NY VS Calif (I'm a native NYer, btw. I've never been to Calif but would LOVE to go, I have family and friends who live out there.)

Jake has been bi coastal, I think he has always been. His parents had homes on both coasts so I think going between Calif and NY is natural for him. He was born in CA, grew up primarily out there and he started his career out there. So it was his home. But NY holds a piece of his heart, he went to Columbia, his sister makes her home with her family in NY. So of course it's a second home for him. He has tons of friends on both coasts. I won't be surprised if he has bought a home in NY. plenty of people (I'm not just saying celebs) have more than one home. (at least Jake has never been one of those celebs who has more home than one person could possibly live in. He impresses me as a guy who has a level head on his shoulders and tries to live as 'normal' a life as he can)

have a great one
