Mountain Man

Found some old photos of Jake from the filming of Brokeback Mountain in 2004. (That were apparently private. Apologies for posting them.)


"Jake G. is one of the most gracious, classy, generous, well-mannered actors I've ever had the good fortune to work with. Love him dearly." Diana Ossana.

In case you missed this, a Brokeback video using Adele's Someone Like You:







New pictures of a hirsute Jake Gyllenhaal in Los Angeles today, leaving old haunt Urth Caffe.

Jake seems to be taking his NY self too far. Pretty sure that's a Yankees cap. Ugh.

Anonymous said...

Adele must be one of the most mediocre singers I've ever heard.
This song is an offense to Ennis & Jack.

UltraViolet said...

Fuck off.

Mary said...

Thanks kinda funny if that is a yankees cap Jake was wearing a LA dodgers cap in NY;)

UltraViolet said...

Ha! You're right, Mary.

But that's no excuse. Jake is allegedly a Red Sox fan. And no real Red Sox fan would ever wear a Yankees cap, even if s/he moved to New York.

WOW UV, I'd never seen the BBM ones before. I knew Atticus was with Jake. saw a video of them playing while he was filming BBM, but never these stills. Nor the one with Diana. Thanks so much.

Jake looks very thin in these latest pics of him in LA. But he seems more relaxed with the paps taking pics today.

bobbyanna said...

Great pics. Jake looks so young in the BBM photos. Wonder how Atticus is doing.

Mary said...

Ita all that soul cycling I guess Lily

UltraViolet said...

He does look thin in the new photos.

I'd never seen these set photos before either. I was excited to find them. I feel like there's a whole treasure trove out there, but it's hard to find.

UltraViolet said...

I added a quote from Diana Ossana's twitter, about Jake. Lovely.

Anonymous said...

This is David Modigliani leaving Urth coffee with him?

GYLLENCRAZY said...

Those stills are Diana Ossana's.

She posted them on her Facebook page, which is a restricted page for friends only.

When she accepted me as her friend I saw those pictures and felt privileged that I got access to them but I never, ever even thought of posting them in my blog or anywhere else. As I haven't posted those of her and Heath, also on her Facebook page. Too personal, too private.

But I guess someone else didn't feel as respectful. I'm not talking about you, UV, I know you probably wouldn't have stolen those from her private Facebook folder.

One of the many faults of the internet, I guess. Now those stills will be around the globe in the blink of an eye, I saw they've already been shared by another blogger. It saddens me, a lot.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, I had bio idea of that. I found them on a German BBM site, and there was no mention of them being private. And no one objected to them.

Apologies to Diana Ossana, whose lovely words I added to the post. I'll take them down, but I fear the damage has been done.

Thanks for letting me know, GC.

Extra said...

Ther are lovely pics UV, you had no idea that they were private.

He really looks like a Mountain Man!

GYLLENCRAZY said...

Like I said, I knew you wouldn't have done it had you known they were private, UV. But thanks for taking them down, I would have done the same.

I've just wrote Diana a message, letting her know that unfortunately those pictures have been made public.

bobbyanna said...

Really sorry you had to remove those beautiful photos, UV, but you did the right thing.

If Jake does go to the event for The Advocate, I hate to say this, but I hope he "grooms" (shaves, trims, gets rid of, etc.)his beard.: ) I like scruffy a lot, but this is bordering on camouflage. : )

Anonymous said...

I think this look is for An Enemy. In one of the summaries I read, one of the characters, the villain, will show up wearing a mustache, and I think other looks too.

Anonymous said...

Jake looks terrible and very thin. Hopefully this is for his new film.

UltraViolet said...

You know, going through the photos on that German site, I noticed how critical people are of Jake. It's always bugged me on DC and here, and the last anon comment is the same.

Such scrutiny and such tantrums if he wears his beard for too long or grows it too long or if he's too thin or if he's gained a few pounds. And no, for the always-ready-to-attack-troll, I'm not insisting that we all praise Jake and say he looks great all the time. But it's disturbing how picky people are when it comes to his appearance.

And yes, I know I have complied about the green pants. But I try not to do it constantly nor as my only comment, as the previous anon.

I don't know that there's anything to be done about it. But for fans, people can be very demanding and whiny.

UltraViolet said...

GyllenCrazy, please let us know if Diana Ossana responds.

Anonymous said...

Hopefully this is for his new film.

It's for his new movie. His character has depression.

UltraViolet said...

I love the know-it-all anons. We'll just take your word for it, then!

gr said...

I mind saying it, but I hope that Jake doesn't go to this event of THe Advocate.

If I knew it wasn't impossible I'd have sworn Jake Gyllenhaal walked by me in station!!!!

bobbyanna said...

UV I agree with you. I don't consider myself as a picky, constant complainer. Sorry if it was misconstrued. I didn't read the comments in the German site.

Jake may look like this for a role, but maybe not. I've read a lot about "Enemy" too. I've read about a moustache. Does anyone really know for certain how the director or Jake wants the characters to look?

UV, I don't think Jake looks "terrible." He doesn't look "too thin." He definitely doesn't look "sad." I hate the constant negative nonsense surround Jake & his life, too. IMO, those aren't fans.

I admit do get impatient with "anons" who always post here. Funny, they even use our names, but don't respect us enough to give theirs.

FYI to "anons":There aren't that many people who keep up with Jake news, and regularly post on Jake fansites. (I should say sites that talk about Jake, bcz they're not all fansites.)

Bet most of the "anons" post on several sites, even twitter, with recognizable names, & hide when posting here. People will do what they want, but that's how I feel. I think it's pretty two-faced.

Anonymous said...

That post from thumbaleena is from the UK. Fake.

UltraViolet said...

Agree totally on the anions, Bobbyanna. And I definitely did not mean you when I talked about people constantly complaining about the way Jake looks.

You and I both get fed up after a point :)

It probably hit home more because I had to translate everything so way paying more attention on that German site. And I read a whole bunch of posts in a short time.

It just makes me shake my head sometimes.

UltraViolet said...

Forgot to answer anon at 1:01. That could be David Modigliani. IT does look like him.

GYLLENCRAZY said...

She did respond. She said that those photos were indeed private and only for her close friends to see. She asked me to give her the link to that German forum, which I did.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, GC.

Cobe said...

GC, the personal pics from BBM have now spread to other sites. FYI.

And Jakes does not look thin, its the pants. If thats the definition of thin than over 1/2 the male population is thin. I think this beard looks better than his past ones myself. And what's wrong with a Jack Twist moustache reappearing?

Thank you.

Chica said...

I didn't get to see the pics but I think that Diana understands that nothing is private on the net.

I will never forgive Jake for wearing a Skankee cap!

bobbyanna said...

I can appreciate that the photos were in someone's personal collection but honestly, I'm pretty sure I've seen similar ones before.

Jake sitting on the grass with Atticus on the set of BBM. Based on how he was dressed,his blue shirt and black cowboy hat, it seems maybe they were taking lots of pictures that day.

I'm curious how anyone can access someone's personal collection if they aren't a friend.

Where? said...

I haven't seen the Jake pics anywhere on tumblr or on dave cullen. They are still there on the german site.

GYLLENCRAZY said...

Mayumi (the Japanese blog) has taken them down, too. I don't know if they've already spread elsewhere, I haven't seen them on tumblr, yet.

As for the impossibility to keep things private on the internet that's not entirely true. If you're familiar with FB you know that if your account is set as private and only your friends can access your data, nobody other than those friends can see them.

Like I told Diana, a friend of hers probably shared those pics with someone who didn't think twice and posted them.

As for those pictures being similar to others, it doesn't make a difference. Those were private moments, Jake was looking at Diana and they were sharing something in that moment that only the people Diana chose were supposed to see.

Anyway, sorry if I distracted you from the topic.

bobbyanna said...

"As for those pictures being similar to others, it doesn't make a difference. Those were private moments, Jake was looking at Diana and they were sharing something in that moment that only the people Diana chose were supposed to see."


GC, I don't disagree with you, I was simply pointed out that there are other similar photos out here for those who expressed regret at not having seen them.

Thansk for answering my question about privacy on FB.

Tweety said...

It's a slippery slope when a public figure friends fans on their FB. they take advantage like the owner of the German BBM site and it makes it uncomfortable for the rest that respect their privacy. Diana should de-friend the owner of the that site IMO.

I love the Adele video so much and Jake looks fine to me, just a little fuzzy, LOL!!

Mary said...

Stephanie has posted some new pics of Jake taken yesterday at the grocery store.

Mary said...

Just Jared also has pics of Jake taken yesterday at a gas station

Anonymous said...

I wonder where Jake likes living better in LA or NY. I've heard other celebs who have lived in both places and many say they prefer NY because it's more REAL. Like in LA people are more fake? (not sure since I've never been to LA yet)

bobbyanna said...

FYI: Jake's friend, David Modigliani is in L.A. shooting film for the Ford Warriors in Pink, a breast cancer awareness campaign.

That BBM video is beautiful and I love Adele :)

Sorry you had a problem with those pictures UV, It doesn't look like they were posted anywhere else.

It's great that Jake's riend David is shooting a breast awareness PSA in L.A.!

bobbyanna said...

Ouch. Jake!

The IHJ smoking photos remnd me of that scene in Donnie Darko.

Mary said...

What photos are you talking the newest pics are the ones of him shopping and at a gas station ana I dont see a cigarette just him holding his car keys?

Mary said...

I guess those pics were taken down according to WDW its too bad if hes started smoking again.

Mary said...

Monica has the pics posted on her site its really a shame that hes smoking again.

GYLLENCRAZY said...

I honestly find a tad hypocrite to post pictures of Jake in every pose from every angle, with whoever he's with, man, woman, friend, girlfriend, sister, parents, even with his niece but 3 pictures of him smoking need to be taken down?

I find more offensive posting pictures of him with baby Ramona, but that's probably just me.

So he's started smoking again (but we're not even sure, he could just have been enjoying one with friends, it doesn't mean he's chain smoking) so what?

UltraViolet said...

I don't think they were taken down. You just have to be logged in to see them.

Sometimes, IHJ shows pictures behind the log in.

GYLLENCRAZY said...

Thanks UV, but in this case I wasn't talking about IHJ.

@bobbyanna I misunderstood the meaning of your remark the other day, I apologize.

GYLLENCRAZY said...

Anyway, I was focusing more on the fact that he was smiling in those pics. It was a real good sight.

UltraViolet said...

GC, I agree with you that people shouldn't overreact to the photos. I wish he didn't smoke, but my guess is that I do some things Jake wishes I didn't do!

As I mentioned in an earlier comment, the amount of judgment and criticism and nit-picking of Jake is weird.

Mary said...

I wasnt criticizing Jake as u said uv we do things that Jake wouldnt like either:)

Anonymous said...

I am a non smoker, one of the things that bothered me is that both Jake and Heath smoked in BBM. At the time I hoped that maybe they were those herbal ciggies. Of course I realized they weren't. It hurts to see someone you care about (my parents, my nephew) smoking. But they have to be the ones to decide to quit. It is not easy to quit. We haven't seen Jake lighting up in a while. But maybe he might smoke once in a while. I worked with a woman who had never smoke (this was at a time when you could still smoke in the office)

Then at our office Xmas party we were all sitting chatting and she takes out a ciggie and lights up. Our mouths dropped open and we said we didn't know you smoked. She said she only does it socially when she is at a party. I knew another co worker who only smoked at the office she said she never smoked at home. Go figure.

maybe doing that Time to Dance video and smoking in that got him started. (or back into it) who knows. It's up to him to quit.

But I do agree with GC it was nice to see a smile on his face

Lily

Tweety said...

I knew when we saw those tweets of him in Berlin with a group of people taking a ciggy break that he was back to smoking. It's a hard habit to break, I should know :(

bobbyanna said...

Maybe not tweety. Maybe in Berlin he was being sociable. : ) Lily, I knew people like that too. I hope the "once in a while theory" applies to Jake.

Seeing him pop in to a convenience store made me wonder what he bought, and I could only think of three things. Cigarettes was one of them ...)


Jake exercises so, so much I can't believe he's a regular smoker. Hiking thru the hills,running all over Runyon Canyon, Soul Cycle four or five times a week, bicycling, jogging, etc. you can't nurse a regular nicotine habit. No matter how young & fit you are.

Plus, he juices so regularly,and often does the vegan thing, etc. and that's clearly about being healthy & getting rid of toxins. : )

I laughed when I saw the way he was holding the cigarette (like a joint) in one photo. It reminded me of that little exchange at the bus stop in Donnie Darko. : )

I'm 6 years an ex-smoker. It's hard to quit. I still have the urge sometimes. I'd never judge Jake or anyone else.

mary, I didn't think you were criticizing Jake at all. I think it would be too bad if he did start smoking again, too. I'm sure he has friends who smoke. But I don't want to believe he's a regular smoker.

He has a beautiful smile. Looked like he was telling a good story in the photos. Very animated.

Mary said...

I agree Bobbyanna with all the exercisung he does and healthy eating I dont think he is a heavy smoker just an ocassional one.

Paula said...

I was thinking the same thing when I first saw the pics, he seems too much of a health nut to be a heavy smoker.

That BBM video is heartbreaking UV.

bobbyanna said...

Interestin item I just found. This is not directly about Jake... but who can say what the future holds... : )

gyllencrazy said...

@bobbyanna Fukunaga is kind of hot, isn't he?

I've never been a heavy smoker, but 3 years ago I cut down to 2 a day, one before and one after dinner. I never cheated on that resolution but again, even when I used to smoke regularly they were just 4 or 5 a day.

I don't think Jake will ever be a heavy smoker, he cares for his health too much. Being a "social" smoker is not that bad a bad thing, IMO.

Anonymous said...

Didn't he date Michelle for awhile?

bobbyanna said...

GC, Fukunaga kind of reminds me of Rodrigo Santoro a little. He's definitely one of the better looking directors.: )

It was nice to see his comments about Naomi Foner, and very interesting to see what he's currently working on.

I am still waiting Jake's new movie news.
It's kind sad when most hollywood blogs mentiong young potential male actors,Jake is almost disappear.....he has only one movie this year and no new one next year(at least right now).It is not a good sigh at all.
I really hope The Double can be done.

Viv said...

sorry.It is not a good sign at all...

Shondra said...

You must be so excited Paula C, best wishes to you and your pending bundle of joy!

There seems to have been a bit of chatter about some Jake pics this week. It looks like the BBM pics didn't make that much of a noise but the Jake smoking pics did.

Smoking is a hard habit to break. The fact that this is the first time he was papped smoking may mean that he is probably a casual smoker, still bad but there are worst things to get upset about.

Daniela said...

Thank you, Paula C.
I also hope a news in brief
and I think that can be "Double" because unlike the Motor City has not denied the negotiations, then it follows that is still standing

What in the world are you talking about? I have not seen any recent pap pics of Jake smooking and yes he has been papped before smoking a long time ago. Smoking is not a crime or a career killer.

Shondra said...

Simmer down Cobe, I didn't say it was a crime. There are pap pics taken earler in the week, checkout some of the comments above from some other posters.

I think they are still on IHJ you have to register to se them in the gallery.

bobbyanna said...

Paula C, I had ultrasound done on my second baby, but I didn't want to know. (!) Looking back, I have the exact opposite attitude. I think it would be irresistible to know the answer today. ; )


I Remember Jake talking about how he and Peter kept trying to find things for poor Maggie to eat because she had such difficulty keeping things down when she was pregnant with Ramona. Sounds like things are better this time. Altho I don't think I could deal with the gooey green smoothies. : )

Yes, Shondra,a bit of chatter about the smoking photos here & elsewhere, if you follow thru the thread. : )

Cobe, no one on this thread or anywhere else that I've read, ever suggested Jake was "committing a crime" by smoking, or that it was a "career killer."

It's been a very long time since anyone saw him smoking, and there were some understandable expressions of surprise and disappointment. It was startling.

Daniela, as folks have said, we have no concrete movie news. Viv, I join you in your laments and hope we hear something soon.

This is a sad story. Bobbyanna had mentioned to me earlier that he was missing. I don't know if Jake or Peter had ever met the guy.

UltraViolet said...

We watched My Week With Marilyn tonight, and I really liked it. I was a skeptic about Michelle's ability to play Marilyn Monroe, but I thought she was wonderful. And I liked the rest of the actors and the movie itself. Much better than I had anticipated.

bobbyanna said...

This is very sad news, UV. Last I'd heard was that he'd gone missing. He was featured in the Born to Run book. I wonder if he was involved with Peter's project.

Glad you enjoyed MWWM. I had a similar reaction I was not expecting it to be good and was very pleasantly surprised. I thought Eddie Redmayne did an excellent job, too.

I watched Midnight in Paris for the 20 millionth time! I love that movie. Woody's Hemingway is hilarious.

UltraViolet said...

I didn't love Midnight in Paris, mostly because of Owen Wilson. And most of the actors, in fact. Marion Cotillard seemed like she was in another movie entirely - one with better actors.

I liked it more when I watched it again, though.

In Christopher McDougall's book, Born to Run, "Caballo Blanco" was a pivotal character. Micah True was "Caballo Blanco" and he is key to any telling of the story of the Native American extreme runners.Last report I reacd about a year ago, Peter was also writing the adaptation, so he probably did know Micah True.

bobbyanna said...

Just checked Christopher McDougall's twitter account and he was in Gila as part of the search team for Micah True.

Chica said...

I loved Weekend with Marilyn. I thouht that Michele did a fantastic job capturing the essensce of Marilyn rather than a impersination of her.


That is sad news regarding Micah :(

bobbyanna said...

Doing twitter searches for Jake news is extremely difficult especially when you have to wade throu a blizzard of insulting rap lyrics about "brokeback Jake Gyllenhaal."

I'm going to file a media complaint with GLAAD. If anyone else would like to do so I highly reccommend it. Last time we raised hell, about Blake Shelton at the Country Music awards, it got reuslts.

Here is a link for those who might be interested. I think it's important for people to understand that this is hommophobic and it is femamtory and insulting. I'm tired of BBM and Jake being a punchline/code words promoting homophobic stereotypes.

They can continue to laugh about it and think it's cool, but at least they know there are a lot of people who disagree.

Here's a link to the offending lyrics.

http://realtalkny.uproxx.com/

Here's a link to GLAAD to file a complaint:

http://www.glaad.org/webform/report-media-defamation

bobbyanna said...

The fact that rappers feud is not news. The fact that they hirl insults at one another is not exceptional. But the fact that they think "brokeback Jake Gyllenhaal" is an effective insult, and their "fans" find it hilarious pisses me off.

"it is femamtory..." Oops. I meant "defamatory."

Anyway, I just posted my complaint.
If enough people post it will get GLAAD's attention and they will actively go on the offensive. I was impressed with their effort last time this happened.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for those links Bobbyanna. I have a big smile and the quickest way to see it disappear is to make stupid homophobic jokes about Jake and more importantly BBM. I call anyone on such bad behaviour and I don't care who it is. It's done on many TV shows. Jake must be sick of it but he never publicly comments on it and many of us here get so angry for him. BBM is so dear to our hearts it sickens me to hear rappers, TV shows, singers and even fellow actors make those stupid throwaway but impactful remarks. Yes something needs to be done.

I will join the cause.

Anonymous said...

That was me Sheba. Blogger not making me log in.

Bobbyanna...with two "n"s. said...

After reading these obscene, nasty posts from anonymous posters, is it any wonder that some of us are wary of the anons who post here?

I'll say this. I don't care if the video is a year old. For some reason it has risen to prominence once again on Twitter, and it is defamatory and insulting.

It needs to be reported. The person who's repsonsible for it needs to be made aware that it's not appropriate or acceptable.

I think BBM was a work of art and I get angry when it's derided and used as a punchline for defamatory homophobic purposes. To the degree that people become innured to these insults it creates a climate that fosters hate and intolerance.

Obviously it's still an issue, and it needs to be reported if Twitter is being spammed with it.

Interesting that tonight is the American Country Music Awards program. How ironic that one year ago on that show, Blake Shelton used BBM to mock Jake...and Blake was taken to task for it publically.

I've reported it and I hope other people do too.

And Anon, as for the rest of your post, I think you're a sad, sick puppy. Your comments are obviously ly a reflection of your own standards, certainly not mine.

UltraViolet said...

It's disheartening to see tweets and comments where just Jake's name is seen as an insult or a joke.

I encourage anyone who searches Twitter to use the advanced search option. You can filter certain words. It's especially helpful at times like this.

I'd say hope the nasty anon won't be back but sadly, like the jokes at Jake's expense, we know they never really go away.

Daniela said...

Hii!
I do not understand why the name is Jake in this song, translate it and do not understand the story
And I think if he saw hope he does not worry about it.

Tweety said...

I saw that tweet earlier Bobbyanna. It's insulting and it made me furious.

But I have to ask why after a year it's being tweeted? I don't recall this video being tweeted when it was first made.

I didn't check to see if it's the artist that decided to tweet it after a year or was it a Jake "fan" doing it fpr shits and giggles because I can't imagine a non-fan going to the trouble looking for it and tweeting it.

Just speculation on my part but I wouldn't be surprised.

Rachel said...

But I have to ask why after a year it's being tweeted? I don't recall this video being tweeted when it was first made.

Because Vibe magazine posted it today and a lot of people follow Vibe magazine.

Margot said...

bobbyanna: What did Blake Sheldon say about Jake? It's fine to file a complaint, but honestly, this happens with celebrities. They get stereotyped sometimes and it's unfortunate. Especially since we love jake and BBM so much, but sometimes it just comes with the territory.

bobbyanna said...

You're right, Margot, it's unfortunate. In the first couple of years after BBM came out, I would've said, well some of this comes with the territory, even though I found it offensive then.

But more than six years have past. It isn't funny anymore. It wasn't then either. It's ignorant and repugnant to me. I find it offensive and unacceptable. I believe people like that need to be engaged and told that many of us find it unacceptable. It's also a lot bigger than Jake. He's just a convenient target.

I'm not going to debate my reaction. I've expressed how I feel in my earlier posts. People can do what ever they like.

Thanks, Rachel. I was curious about why it suddenly was all over twitter. At least now we can put a name to it.

Margot said...

bobbyanna: you are right. It has been 6 years and it is time to stop typecasting Jake. I don't really understand the meaning of the rap song though in reference to Jake but I get the gist. I wish it was just some some April Fools joke or something.

My complaint has been lodged with GLADD Bobbyanam thanks for posting the link.

It's been 6 years and people are still using BBM and Jake to spread their homophobia, enough already.
