London times

After a flurry of excited tweets earlier, photographic proof that Jake Gyllenhaal is, indeed, in London. We're having a spring-like February 1 in Boston, but it looks a little chilly there.

I see the khakis have made the trip, as well. I guess it's too late to hope the green pants were left behind.

Jake will be in Berlin next week for the Berlin Film Festival. There have also been a lot of tweets about his being in a music video in London.

We know the Brits love Jake. Further proof with this Heat page, showing Jake as the 5th hottest hunk on the planet. Maybe he can bump off David Beckham now that he's in town.


Daniela said...

First! At last new photos, love to see him smiling

Anonymous said...

Yay for photos He looks good. I wonder if it's colder in London than here. I guess he's going to be working on that video


Anonymous said...

It's freezing in the UK, Jake is looking good

Mary said...

Thanks UV jake looks good i heard its pretty cold in London

Tweety said...

I hope his beloved khakis survive thr cold in the UK!! After all those tweets he finally is in London I persume to shoot the video.

UltraViolet said...

Is it wrong to hope they don't, tweety? Unless it means the return of the green! I really hope he packed a more diverse set of clothes for Berlin.

Some more photos of Jake, including one at an ATM. Not sure we've seen one of those before, have we? That would have been a spot on JakeWatch Bingo.

Back on the home front, Jake makes a political donation.

bobbyanna said...

Jake makes me feel cold just looking at the pictures. Although, I have to confess, I'm looking at them on an unseasonably warm, 50-ish degree Michigan day!: )

I hope something terrible happens to those khakis, too, but not while he's wearing them!: ) Maybe the laundry will lose them. : ) He looks thinner, especially his legs.

Chica said...

Maybe the khakis will self destruct, w/o him in them of course!

Good to see a bit of a smile from him:)

Watching Some Like it Hot on TCM, one of the funniest comedies ever and a classic ending!

Twitter said...

Just dined at the next table to Jake Gyllenhaal, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin- birthday dinner was certainly memorable!

Here's another report:

What an evening! Just had dinner @ The Hawksmore in Covent Garden and ONLY Paltrow, Martin, Diaz & Gyllenhall at the next freakin' table! :)
1 hour ago

Apparently, it's the best steak restaurant in London.

bobyanna said...

That sounds like a fun group!
But after looking at the menu, I bet they all end up juicing or looking for kale @ the greenmarket! Wonder if Gwyneth will "Goop" about it. : )

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Jake looks sooooo cold! It's so warm here in Conn. and the East coast, Jake must miss the warm temperatures in NY, LOL!!!

Good to see him hanging out with freinds, I remember him hanging with Paltrow and her husband Chris when he was with Reese.

bobbyanna said...

Me, too, OONP. : )

Jake was at Wolseley last night...and so was Bear Grylls!

Cameron Diaz and Bear Grylls were on some talk show together a few months ago, and she was very enthusiastic about doing an episode with him. I wonder if that's ever going to happen.

bobbyanna said...

Another tweet about the Hawksmoor dinner with Gwyneth, etc.

"My mate was having dinner in London and next to him were Chris Martin, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jake Gyllenhall." Bastard

"Oh, and he said: "Jake and Cameron looked very affectionate." Are they dating?"

Monica said...

I agree with you, Bobbyana. He looks thinner.

I always remember the movie Lost In Translation when I see Cameron Diaz.

UltraViolet said...

More photos of Jake from last night here.

Someone who works at the Hawsmoor tweeted about missing Jake and Gwyneth. So perhaps Jake had dinner and then dinner again? No photos of the Gwyneth party. I hope people did not mistake Chris Martin for Jake!

From today:

Paula C. said...

It must be freezing in London, Europe is being hit by a Siberian cold wave, we are starting to feel the effects in Portugal today.

For once Jake is closer to me than most of you:)
Cameron is such a funny girl, I bet they had a blast at dinner,he certainly loves to go out to dinner with friends.

Baby update: super confirmed, I'm pregnant!I'm happy, scared, anxious nervous and excited all at the same time.

T said...

Congratulations Paula - a Gyllenbabble baby

I can't believe how cold it is in the UK at the mo, it's that jake always brings us dodgy weather!!! I bet dinner was a blast and jake is always effectionate to his friends and family, looks like he met bear grylls and dermot o Leary later on, certainly making the most of his time in London to catch up with old friends.

Can't wait to see what video brought him over here

Chica said...

Congratulations Paula C, what wonderful news!!!

bobbyanna said...

Awww! PaulaC.!!! What lovely news!!
Congratulations to you and your family!

"Alli @MakeupByAlli

Had dinner a few tables away from Jake Gyllenhaal and Bear Grylls last night.."

Mary said...

congratulations Paula

Extra said...

Yay! I'm so happy for you Paula C, Congratulations!!!

These polls on hottest men and women always annoy me but Jake coming in at 5 isn't bad at all considering he hasn't been front and center like he used to be.

Looks like people in the UK are just as thrilled to spot Jake as paople are in New york (still the best tweets!)

bobbyanna said...

Yes, Extra, but London may have the edge for taking twitpics! LOL!

bobbyanna said...

Just saw this on Twitter:

"Best business dinner celeb spot. Wife just called from River Cafe - Gwyneth Paltrow + hubby, Jake Gyllenhaal, Thandie Newton at next table"

T said...

Am just thinking out loud so this could be total tosh but 2 sightings of Jake with Gwyneth and Chris, I'm wondering if this video is for cold play!!! I could be wrong and it could be friends meeting up but just a thought

UltraViolet said...

One of the tweeters who said she had an audition for the video later tweeted the name of the band:

Lucky you! Enjoy it! Do you have any idea what kind of music video is that?
30 Jan
in reply to ↑

No clue! for a band called The Shoes
31 Jan

I did a little research, but I have no idea if this is the band.

The director mentioned in some tweets (Daniel Wolfe) did a video for this band last year. The director seems to have done a series of videos for someone called Plan B.

UltraViolet said...

Goodness, I missed Paula's exciting news. Congrats and best wishes, Paula. And thanks doe sharing the good news.

Interesting group for dinner. Gwyneth has had a busy week!

UltraViolet said...

More from twitter:

With @kiranhussvasant In the Connaught hotel bar while she stares at jake gyllenhall. She is actually not talking!

And a clarification:

Oh and Thandie Newton was at a different table to Gyllenhaal and Paltrow. Friend says she was singing in the loo - great voice.

@JakeSources Just back from River Cafe (could not resist crashing wife's dinner). Jake G looked great with beard. Gwyneth lovely + v tall.

Mary said...

Thanks UV loving all the tweets Londoners are great tweeters too that last tweet is very funny that guy must be a Jake fan to crash his wifes dinner party:)

Anonymous said...

congratulations Paula!

I'm glad Jake got together with Bear, I can't wait to see the music video.


UltraViolet said...

So not that anyone seemingly noticed :) But it looks like the tweeter was right, and the video is for The Shoes:

I just stood next to jake gyllenhaal! In leylands in dalston of all places! Apparently filming a music vid for the shoes. #goodcelebspot!

bobbyanna said...

Thanks, UV. I've checked out some samples and they sound pretty good.
The Shoes have a big push coming up for an album release March 7th.

BTW: Has anyone ever seen/heard of a South Park episode about TDAT? It was called "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow"? I got a Google about it.

bobbyanna said...

Just found this:

"Wow, what a week! Fantastic rehearsals in the room. Drinks with Jake Gyllenhaal last night and Sam barks gets Eponine! You gotta love it!"
Laurence Connor @LaurenceConnor1

Interestingly, Laurance Connor is:

"Theatre Director. Phantom, Albert hall. Les Mis 25th Anniversary production and O2 concert. Miss Saigon..." London

LOL! "anon"
He's late! We've known as much as he does, if not more, for weeks now. I trust what we discover a lot more than TC, who's a repulsive, despicable POS.

Anonymous said...

ok. I am sorry I didn't know it, I have just posted the tweet

bobbyanna said...

I'm sorry,anon.
I really don't like TC. We've had lots of twitter reports of Jake out with girls,a "brunette" etc. for a while now. So TC hasn't told us anything new. I wonder sometimes if he reads/gets his information off the fan blogs and then acts like he has a source.

Anonymous said...

ok :)

Extra said...

TC does get his infor from blogs, tweets, etc just like every other gossip blogger and yes talk about old news!

I saw your Shoes link UV, thanks for the info, sisn't get a chance to comment on them!!

This is Jake's 3rd music video, can't wait to see it!!

Daniela said...

It was expected that Jake would do a video with a group not so well known, at least for me
The Vampire Weekend I only knew them because of Jake and Jamie Foxx did not even know he was a singer lol

bobbyanna said...

UltraViolet said...

It is a sexy profile. Hopefully we'll get a few more London pics.
