Bicoastal Stageman

Jake Gyllenhaal's true superhero role, leaping tall states in a single weekend-bound, tailoring his look for each coast. Serious mode at the Tonys:






But joyful and chivalrous in presenting:




Some Instagram shots:





Video of Jake arriving:



Kibitzing:



Presenting:



Some shots of him in the audience during this bit with Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, Megan Hilty and Laura Osnes.


And definitely comedic at the Spike TV Guys' Choice Awards, where he played The Dude to honor Jeff Bridges:

Lots of funny JAke tweets:

They keep advertising Jake Gyllenhaal SOMEONE JUST PULL HIM ONSTAGE ALREADY UGH. #TonyAwards

UltraViolet said...

Also, did they give Jake's seat away because he was late? LOL. Looks like he's sitting somewhere different from the rehearsal seat photos.

bobbyanna said...

You're absolutely right, UV, Jake looks "god" tonight. : ) LOL!


(Anna Kendrick looks gorgeous too.; ) )

Monica said...

UltraViolet said...

Apparently, Jake was a trending topic at one point:

Their pushing back jake gyllenhaal on purpose #tonyawards #tonyawards2013 #tonys

Stop teasing Jake Gyllenhaal and bring him out already!!

I've about put myself in a sugar coma...waiting on Jake Gyllenhaal to present...lol #tonyawards

Dear #tonyawards ,
Stop lying to me and bring me Jake Gyllenhaal

MY MOM JUST TOUCHED JAKE GYLLENHAAL OMG mom please tell you made it worth while. #assgrab?

The #TonyAwards has been dangling Jake Gyllenhaal like a giant bearded carrot during this entire telecast. #comingup

I like how every commercial break they tease "coming up...jake gyllenhaal" to keep all the ladies tuned in #itsworking

I was about to change the channel, but they just said Jake Gyllenhaal is presenting a Tony at some point tonight #swoon

You know we're all just waiting for Jake Gyllenhaal. Bring him out already!


It would have been funny if Jake had been under the Spiderman mask.

UltraViolet said...

Added a few instagram photos.

If you're wondering who that is next to Jake:

I would give my firstborn child to sit where Will Chase is sitting. Between Debra Messing and Jake Gylenhaal. My own personal heaven.

suvee said...

Pretty cool that Jake presented such a major award! I know he's a respected film actor, but he hasn't established a substantial stage presence, at least not on Broadway. I'm impressed.

UltraViolet said...

More funny tweets:

Would definitely break up with my fiancΓ© right there on stage if Jake Gyllenhaal was walkin' me out. #tonyawards

ELLEmagazine: Dapper Jake Gyllenhaal and elegant Cicely Tyson: is this our favorite moment of the #TonyAwards? #tonys

If I had just received that Tony, I don't know what I would have been more excited for. It or Jake Gyllenhaal handing it to me. #swoon

Lord Jesus, I just wanna thank you for your many gifts, but especially for air conditioning and Jake Gyllenhaal. #tonys

Patina also lost it when she realized Jake Gyllenhaal was walking her offstage. #tonys2013

Shout out to Jake Gyllenhaal for just making the Tony's that much more interesting 😏

Patina Miller is PRECIOUS and PERFECT, and she totally spazzed out to Jake Gyllenhaal after her speech. LOVE LOVE LOVE HER TO DEATH

To be escorted off the Tony stage by Jake Gyllenhaal would be a dream. 😍 #TonyAwards

Not only did she won a tony she got jake gyllenhaal to congratulate and put his hand on her waist

I wouldn't even want the Tony. I'd be like "Give me Jake Gyllenhaal"

Exactly how my face would be if I got to kiss jake gyllenhaal...I mean won a #TonyAward congrats #patinamiller pic.twitter.com/Nc58uJucPi

Jake Gyllenhaal looks really good in a tux but Cicely Tyson just stole the show. #Tonys2013

UltraViolet said...

Hi, suvee!

I assumed they'd give that slot to Hanks, but maybe they thought he'd be backstage doing press for his win. Oops.

I wish you'd gotten to see Jake onstage. It was definitely the departure role you've wished for him.

bobbyanna said...

The twitter and FB response to Jake's presence is just hilarious. I love it! And that was a very special moment with Cecily Tyson. She is a magnificent actor.

Scott said...

I feel the pain of tweets waiting for Jake to come on, they kept teasing about him. But I saw cut away shots of him so that kept me entertain but I must say Neil was made to host the Tonys, he was great and the opening was fantastic.

Between the Spurs gutting my hopes of sweeping the Heat and waiting for Jake my Sunday night was pretty stressful.

Chica said...

He looks so fine, sigh. I'm so thrilled that Cecily won and Jake presented her the award!

Monica said...

The coments on twitter were so fun and he was wonderful. He looks so good in a suit!

Thanks for the "heads up" Lara.


(sigh.) Looking thru all those photos I can really appreciate the beauty and the detail of that suit.
And it was cut to perfection. Tom Ford. And the subtlety of that deep midnight blue with the black detailing. I mean. He really brought it, didn't he.

I wish Jake would sign on with some fashion house so when I open my Vanity Fair, I'd see his beautiful face the way I see James Franco or Matthew Mc Connaughey.

Today was so exciting, so many News, I must post everything.:-)

These are eventful days for us fans!
Jake went in one day from The Dude to Cary Grant, without batting an eyelid!

and for heading

"lucky people who are not me"

also i walked by Jake Gyllenhaal last night and we made eye contact and i can assure you love is real

Tweety said...

I agree with you Bobbyanna, I don't know why a designer hasn't approached Jake with a deal. He looks amazing in a tux. Maybe he was and he said no.

I can't stop staring at these pics what a difference from the Dude get up!

And what an honor for him to present the lead actress in a play and a musical. Very well done Mr G.

Jake's face said...

I said I love Jake’s hilarious pics as the Dude. So what more can I say about Jake at the Tonys? I mean really,what a beautiful man. Stunning, elegant, so graceful helping Cicely Tyson.
Never saw a tux fitting a body so well. I was floored.
He should attend more events like this.Should be a spokesmodel for Tom Ford or Ferragamo. But Jake does things his way only: we love him for it.

Lara said...

FP, I´m wonderful,thanks, Just here staring at Jake´s pics.:-)
:-) "gorgeous", LOLLLLLLLL, I like it A LOT.

I´m happy that´s all right 4 u. Be cool.:-)

UltraViolet said...

I love the instagram shot of Jake interacting with the fan. He looks happy to be there.

Updated the post with video from the show, courtesy of the wonderful Stephanie.

On a separate note, IMDb seems to have changed the name of An Enemy to Enemy. I don't understand the change, but then, I don't understand anything they are doing - or not doing.

GQ puts Jake on their Most Stlyish Men of the Tonys.

I'd never want to see Jake as Bond, as it is a British role. But I'd love to see him play that kind of suave character. Someday, I hope...

Sheba said...

"I'd never want to see Jake as Bond, as it is a British role. But I'd love to see him play that kind of suave character."

Well we did have an Australian play Bond and he wasn't half bad. Jake would be amaze balls as Bond as he can do a Brit accent pretty well. His fighting technique though is scrappy and probably will need 'tightening' up. They gave Daniel so much sh!t in the beginning, especially the Brits themselves, but they hail him as the best Bond now. Jake in a tux makes my tummy do somersaults. He still is a beautiful, poised but quirky man. Love him!!

Paula C. said...

wow, he looks good! Feeling a heat wave coming truth me!!

Let's face it , no one works a tux like Jake!

Lol at the girl comment on the meet the fans video: " Jake Gyllenhaal, Jake get them all!"

UV,the video of him presenting is the same as the previous :(

Jake's face said...

It's not just us swooning. DETAILS fashion police agrees:


Best Dressed at the 2013 Tony Awards: The Winner Is…

Jake Gyllenhaal

For some reason, the standard necktie pallbearer/chauffeur look is all the rage in men’s formalwear. The turnout at last night’s Tony Awards was no exception. It was like a black business suit convention on an unfortunate scale.

But Gyllenhaal did it beautifully. J-Gyl went vintage 007 in a beautifully-tailored, midnight blue dinner jacket with a shawl lapel. It’s similar to the shawl-lapel homage worn by Daniel Craig in Skyfall, but Gyllenhaal went all the way with turn-back cuffs, just like the midnight blue shawl-lapel tux sported by Sean Connery in his very first scene in Dr. No in 1962.

He also kept it real with a spread collar tuxedo shirt. As I see it, the wing collar is great if you’re in a morning suit, in tails, or in a magic show at a Chippendales All-Male Revue.

Not only did Jake pull off a great tux and smart shirt, but he also nailed the proportions. The bow tie, shirt collar and jacket lapel should all work together with consistent proportions (also in relation to the size of one’s head); they all come together more nicely when they are a reasonably similar width. (Tom Hanks almost nailed it except for a clown-sized bow tie, which looked like it was wearing him instead of the other way around.)


UltraViolet said...

Thanks for letting me know, Paula! The correct videos should be showing now. Sorry about that.

Hello, sheba! Haven't seen you for a while. I agree absolutely that Jake could be a great Bond. But I don't want another PoP where all people talk about is how he's wrong for the role and ignore the actual product.

Of course, if we can have a British superman, an American James Bond should be okay!

Forgot to say hello to Leonor, too!

Another red carpet shot.

Some funny captions for the photo of Jake, Jeff Bridges and the giraffe.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the Details snippet, Jake's face. I have to agree on the wing-tip collar. Not a fan.

And of course I agree with their assessment of Jake at the Tonys :)

Scott said...

Jake would make a great Bond, if not an American one that could be the twist in a Bond movie an American pretending to be Bond.

He's just so hot in the tux that I need sunscreen to look at the pictures.

Mumford & Sons Bassist Ted Dwane Undergoes Emergency Brain Surgery.

A blood clot on the brain of Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has forced the band to postpone three shows as his bandmates and scores of fans send him healing thoughts.

"Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment," reads a statement posted on the band's official website Tuesday.

"The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery."

The health scare has forced the band to postpone three concert dates this week, in Dallas, The Woodlands, Texas, and New Orleans, according to the site, which adds, "we have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour."

I´m happy they caught this before it turned into something more!Get well soon, and God bless you.

bobbyanna said...

So sorry to hear of Ted Dwane's emergency surgery. I hope everything works out and he makes a complete recovery. What a terrible scare. Glad they caught it.

I simply can't get over how incredible Jake looked Sunday night. there really are no words. : )

Jake's face said...

Blood clots, dangerous things. Glad everything's ok now.

You're welcome UltraViolet. Nice detailed description of his tux. The Bond references go hand in hand with GQ's suggestion you mentioned before. He could do a Bond type movie.Or at least a Vanity Fair photoshoot.

Really beautiful that Jeremy Kost shot of Jake on the red carpet.

I Just Saw One of My Favorites Actors Walking on The Streets of Chinatown...JAKE GYLLENHAAL!!!...#NewYorkRocks — in New York

Bob Berry said...

Does anyone know what the lettering on Jake's ring say or mean? There seems to be lettering on the ring. Jake looked really good at the tony award show

UltraViolet said...

Saw this on FB this morning and thought it was funny:

So I was chatting on twitter about David Fincher’s “Zodiac” when Jake Gyllenhaal is in the basement with the guy he thinks is the serial killer and how unnerving this was when seen in an empty cinema on your own. Woke up this morning to find that the actor from that scene had tweeted me saying “you’re never really alone”. Ha ha. The actor was Charles Fleischer - who is also the voice of Roger Rabbit!! How cool is that?

Some leftover Tony tweets:

#JakeGyllenhaal is every bit as nice in person as he is handsome and talented and that's saying alot!! #tonyawards

Seriously, is #jakegyllenhaal even at the Tony's?

I don't even remember what I was just thinking about because suddenly #TheTonys threw #JakeGyllenhaal in my face. And he is too handsome.


A sort of Jake-adjacent story. If there are Toronto GBers, you might get the references.

UltraViolet said...

Poor Ted Dwane! Hope he gets well and takes his time recovering.

Monica said...

Bob Berry, are two rings. One of them comes with Carpe Diem and the other is a commitment to himself.

Mary said...

Sad news about M&S Ted Dwane wish for a speedy recovery.

Jake was definitely the best dressed at the Tony's.

Thank you Monica! I am little confused about what does it mean to have a commitment ring to ones self?

Scott said...

"what does it mean to have a commitment ring to ones self?"

Jake has had those rings for years since he was way young, a committment to oneself is not that hard to figure out. You put you first and take care of yourself. I'm sure if someone would ask him he would tell them like he has in the past. No hidden agendas there. And its not uncommon people commit to themselves all the time.

Monica said...

UltraViolet said...

five Things You Won't See on the Guy's Choice Awards:

A super welcome. Henry Cavill was adorably shy on his first big industry gathering repping the upcoming Superman flick "Man of Steel." Talk shows and press junkets are one thing, but it's quite another to be a superhero in a room full of leading men who have been tested at the box office. In this particular sea of movie stars, Cavill got a warm welcome from all the guys that came through: Affleck, Mark Wahlberg, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Vin Diesel. ...

Put your clothes back on, Gyllenhaal! Jake rolled to Sony Pictures Studios, where the show taped, in a dark leather jacket and a scruffy beard but, as only Spike can, the network quickly got the actor’s gear off. Gyllenhaal climbed into a bathrobe and shaggy blond wig to impersonate Bridges in “The Big Lebowski,” to whom he presented the "Original Dude" trophy. We can only assume that one is eponymous. After his bit, Gyllenhaal wasted no time in disrobing -- taking off his "Dude" duds en route to a backlot bathroom while production staff ogled him.


From a PR firm - LOL:

This probably beats the time we accidentally sent a pic of Jake Gyllenhaal to a client http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/cashier-asleep-with-finger-on-keyboard-launched-a-222222222-transaction-8653656.html

The release date of "Enemy" in the UK has been revised again. Now it's scheduled for release on September 13th. That's one week later than the originally planned date, but five weeks earlier than the previously revised release date.

Scott said...

Thanks Hagen, still anxious as to why no North American distributor or release date...maybe because they want it to be a foreign only?

Hagen said...

...maybe because they want it to be a foreign only?

WME has been assigned to sell the distribution rights in the US.

bobbyanna said...

LOL!
I wish I knew which parts of the show Jake was on, because the idea of sitting thru The Guys Choice Awards on Spike TV, is not something I'm looking forward too. Only for you, Jake! : )

Scott said...

"I wish I knew which parts of the show Jake was on, because the idea of sitting thru The Guys Choice Awards on Spike "

I agree 100%, they have not been very kind to Jake in the past. It's almost as if you have to dumb yourself or lower your IQ a couple of hundred points to watch this network. I hate to ponder much on their target audience- overweight, beer gut, plays video games 22 hours a day on Mom's couch (other 2 hours watching a movie downloaded online illegally) and considers himself cool and manly because he watches Spike TV?

Jake news is pretty sparse but I found this on FB:

Golden Bridge also has studios in L.A. The studio she saw Jake at is located in Lower Manhattan off Broome Street in SoHo.

Mary said...

Thanks for the heads up Bobbyanna hasn't come on yet where I live:)

Monica said...

this confirms that jake signed for into the woods?
Tracey Ullman is in negotiations to join the growing cast of Into the Woods, Disney’s adaptation of the Broadway musical being directed by Rob Marshall.

Ullman will join an all-star roster that so far includes Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Emily Blunt.

Ullman will play the mother to Jack the Giant Killer, who has yet to be cast.

Streep is playing a witch and Depp is taking on a variation of the fairy tale wolf. Gyllenhaal and Pine play princes to Cinderella and Rapunzel.


I forgot to watch guys choice!

bobbyanna said...

Don't worry monica. LOL! They will be repeating the show tonight several times. It came on @ 9, and will repeat @ 11 & 1 AM.

We're waiting for the mother of all storm fronts to roll in here during the night. Hopefully it will not be as bad as it looks on the weather map. : /.

UltraViolet said...

So how was it, Bobbyanna? I didn't get to watch - I'm recording the 11:00 show.

Monica, it seems like Jake is officially in, but you know how these things go.

It was OK. It wasn't the funniest bit, but the clips from the movie were hilarious. Then Jeff came on. Jake's role was fairly brief. He joked about Jeff & Maggie. Jeff was very warm and funny and affectionate. You can see they're close.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, Bobbyanna. Stephanie has the video up already, so I watched that. Ben Affleck and Jimmy Kimmel could have cracked a smile there during Jake's bit.

I hope he had other things to do in LA, because flying there for that? A waste of time.

I put the video in the post.

bobbyanna said...

Whew, is it raining! Hard. Gonna be a lonnnng night.

Yeah, I noticed Affleck & Kimmel.

Well Jake was there all week right? So hopefully he did do other things. But honestly, it was hardly worth him staying over when he could have gone back to NYC earlier.

Extra said...

Compared to the Tonys this was definitely a big meh. They had some fun banter on stage snd we.
got to see some really fun clips but it sure paled from the sexy anf classy Jake at the Tonys!

It looks like Jake is a definate for Woods lets all keep our fingers crossed.

Well it's a brilliant, sunny morning here, and I never lost power. : ) I was worried about flooding, but everything's fine in my area.

Looks like Nightcrawler is being fast tracked and MG might be pushed back? Very glad to know things are moving forward.

I don't see how he can do Nightcrawlers this summer, and be in London for Into the Woods in September. Maybe the September date is flexible especially since they haven't finished casting it.


Scott said...

Well his part in Into the Woods is very small like most of the supporting cast right? A week or two at the most.

It's possible he can do three movies between July and September and very possible to do two if one is supporting.

UltraViolet said...

More Jake movie tryouts:

Today I have to take Fred into London for an audition. For a film. A film which will feature a Mr Depp and a Mr Gyllenhaal. The little B*****d.

Also, here's a glimpse of Jake last night.

And from one of the tweeters:

Jake Gyllenhaal is bowling on the lane next to me...NYC you slay me

he seems like he’d be a good “regular” guy when hanging out; none of that bs Hollywood stuff

he was pretty awesome

Hagen said...

Looks like Nightcrawler is being fast tracked and MG might be pushed back? Very glad to know things are moving forward.

According to "Hollywood Reporter" filming of "Nightcrawler" will begin in late October. At least that's what they wrote seven weeks ago. I haven't got a clue, if the schedule holds, but it looks somewhat plausible to me (as well as the start of production of "Into the Woods" in September). On the other hand the schedule of "Mississippi Grind" looks very vague (start of production was scheduled for May, April, fall and summer, depending on which sources you read).


Something off-topic in the Guardian: Spielberg told students at USC they were vying to enter the film industry at a time when even established film-makers were struggling to get their projects into cinemas, and revealed that the Oscar-winning Lincoln came "this close" to being premiered on the US pay-TV network HBO."I think eventually the Lincolns will go away and they're going to be on television," Lucas added. "As mine almost was," Spielberg interjected. "This close – ask HBO – this close." "The pathway to get into theatres is really getting smaller and smaller," said Star Wars creator Lucas.

Apparently it won't be easy for Jake's independent movies.

bobbyanna said...

I agree with Speilberg, Lucas, etc. Getting financing to make films, and getting distribution deals is getting more difficult, because on the business side of things the "suits" want guarantees.

I believe there's still a lot of uncertainty about how to effectively exploit new technologies and media outlets, & the way people can watch movies.

But I also believe distributors influence what appears at the local multiplex based on how they sell their film packages. When they sell a Fast/Furious 6 or Iron Man, they also have several smaller films attached, so theatre owners can't just pick out the commercial blockbusters without taking a few of what they regard as "weaker" titles.

Theatre owners complain, but they have to look at the way they do business. A small, personal example: We have two independent theatres in my community. One closed for renovations. When it reopened, it had plush new seats, a bar, a coffeehouse and a modest restaurant that served a limited menu. They've been opened for more than three years, doing a booming business.

People still like to go out to the movies. There's something singular and special about the collective experience of seeing a movie on the big screen with other people. So I think the market is still there, but getting the people who make financial decisions to buy into that is tough. Everyone seems to want the next Iron Man or Avatar. They're like Las Vegas:
Bet big, win big. But they lose big too. And when they drop $200M on one movie,d then spend the same amount to market it, and lose money, they have just dealt themselves out of generating more product at a time when there's a need for more product. They could be making the six or seven or ten smaller movies that would have done well.

Lincoln would have done wonderfully well on HBO, but it was filmed so beautifully, I'm glad I saw it on a big screen. It deserved a big screen.

Sorry for my long-winded "thought sharing" : )

Disney just announced that Into The Woodswill be released december 25 2014

Wow that's 18 months, well I think they can afford delays.

Jake's face said...

From HitFix.com:

Disney slates two untitled Marvel films for 2016 and 2017 release
Also: Sondheim adaptation 'Into the Woods' coming Christmas 2014

- Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical adaptation "Into the Woods," which has now officially been slated for release on December 25, 2014. Directed by Rob Marshall ("Chicago"), the film has nabbed a slew of A-listers over the last couple of months including, reportedly, Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine (though no formal announcements have yet been made).



They must have a strategy planned for the official announcements but I think it's 99% sure Jake got the role.
Planning Into The Woods for Christmas opposite Sony's musical Annie, Disney must have big expectations.Remember what a smash Les Miz was on Christmas?
Also 2 unspecified Marvel movies for2016 and 2017 and we know Jake had a meeting with Marvel.

Let's not get too way ahead of ourselves. Alot can happen in 2 1/2 years let alone 18 months. Until Jake or his reps announces he is in the movie, I am holding off in getting my hopes up for Into the Woods. I came back to earth and remember what a roller coaster ride it is being a Jake fan. Although I did gush for a couple of weeks over the rumors.

Looks like Jake enjoyed a play tonight.
This from Twitter:

Leaving the @PublicTheaterNY just now, coming out of Here Lies Love: Jake Gyllenhaal -L

bobbyanna said...

Here's a description of the play:

Hmmm. Maybe Jake was practicing his dance moves earlier so he could enjoy the play. Audience members participate. : )

Emily is work in Ankara/Turkey. I saw this twitt before but this Young men is from DC. so i think is better wait.

Lara said...

Honestly i thougt that was Jake but I did not see he use any hat or jacket, so i thougt it´s better wait. I´m sure that is a date will be twitts or Photos, Could be a doppelganger it seems is everywhere. :-)

bobbyanna said...

Thank you, Lara. I found it puzzling too. It was nice to see Jake out for a stroll with a lady. : ) But I checked Emily because she does tweet (!) and you're right. Ankara, Turkey.

That's Jake said...

The woman might not be Emily but that doesn't mean it's not Jake.

Monica said...

Lara, it's Jake. Look at the shoes and the pants that I hate!
I don't know if Emily (most of these models are look like to each other for me), but this is Jake.

bobbyanna said...

Yeah, LOL! Bless you, monica, the pants give him away.

That's definitely Jake, but the girl's built differently than Emily, and Emily's hair is a different color.

That's not Emily who is pretty tall and has model posture, no offense to the young lady with Jake.

She actually walks like Maggie and yes I know she's not Maggie.

Do you guys think it is Kelly Bensimon. When Jake was in LA a twitter by the name of Trent Vanegas saw them at chateau marmont . I do not know if they were together that noc. It is just a suggestion. I do not know who he is with.

He was not with Kelly at Chateau Marmont, in Los Angeles, she was at a separate table.

Scott said...

She is really pretty, the girl having a meal with Jake. To be honest she looks better than Jake in those pictures. That frowny face looks like "why did I order this? I can't get my knife through it."

I am happy for the pictures but sometimes I do feel intrusive with pictures like these because obviously neither one of them expected their meal to be iphoned.

Anonymous said...

They don't seem to know they're being photographed. The ones that bother me are when Jake realizes he's being photographed and he looks upset about it.

Anonymous said...

Do you guys think that she is an actress from the play Jake saw on Thursday ? She looks of maybe Asian decent.

I don't think any of us knows who it is.

"We" as his fans. I literally wrote as the question popped into my head. I know you do not like Anonymous posts (even though this site allows them). My wording was not designed to offend.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for choosing a name. I don't mind anon posts, because I know people don't always want to sign in. I don't like anons who try to stir up trouble. And nothing brings them out like a photo of Jake on a date.

So thanks for clarifying.

I'm sure we'll find out who it is eventually if they are seen together more.

Maria said...

Morning everyone,

Camila Belle looks like a good guess, plus they do know eachother from events... Though as you said it is purely speculation, time will tell. All we see is two young people eating together, don't that happen all the time, date or not date?

On another more relaxed note: Looking at all the sightings from Jake, doesn't it strike you that he spends a lot of his free time in restaurants and food shops?? I mean, it's a great idea (I love food too) but... How on earth does he stay so fit and doesn't put on weight? Must do a lot of exercise to keep those calories out lol :)

FP said...

Camila Belle is in Argentina

Anonymous said...

I wonder how often Jake cooks for himself or his friends? We see him so often going to restaurants.

just wondering.

Scott said...

That lady in the pictures is Jake's new wife, he got married last month. They are expecting a new baby on Decemeber 19th 2013. Jake will divorce her six months after the baby is born and then start dating again.

Lol, I can't wait until Jake is truly married because I fear for the mental health of some of his fans.

Found this article in the UK's The Sun tabloid about further casting news for ITW. Little Red Riding Hood audition:

Even though I love getting a glimpse now & then, I'm glad Jake can have a personal life that doesn't include tabloid headlines. : )

Jake Gyllenhaal just jaywalked in front of my car.

No, Brooklyn

f I'd realized it was him a second sooner I would have said "hurry it up, Jake Gyllenhaal." Full name

He was too preoccupied by his lady to realize the light had changed.

Vine said...

Noticed the girl from breakfast with Jake in the Vine video. Looked like Broadway guy was there, too.

FP said...

Who's Broadway guy?

Scott said...

"Who's Broadway guy?"


The guy who walked past him on the red carpet and sat beside him. I noticed him too because he was underdressed compared to Jake.

FP said...

thanks Scott I see now

but don't Look like the same guy

I'm wrong?

bobbyanna said...

FP, there's a similarity, but I'm not sure it's the same guy. I'm definitely on the fence. I think IHJ has some photos of Jake at the Tonys that might help. Jake has a lot of friends, so it's possible, but I am sure that's the girl from the Fat Radish photos we saw. I hate vine. They're so fast and so short! We need more time to study! LOL! : )

FP said...

Oh my! bobbyanna Jake was so incredibly beautiful at the Tonys that I have not noticed anyone else!LOL! : )

Hagen said...

According to Awardsdailyforums the reprise of "Agony" and most songs that are sung by the whole company ("First Midnight", "Second Midnight", "Act One Finale" and "Act Two Prologue") don't appear in the script of "Into the Woods". So Jake's role is rather small: "Agony" with Chris Pine and "Any Moment" (Part 1 and 2) with Emily Blunt.

Anonymous said...

Which means Chris Pine's role is even smaller than Jake's. Just "Agony" in duet with Gyllenhaal.

In the play Cinderella Prince has several scenes with Cinderella, the stepmother and stepsisters and duets with Rapunzel Prince and the baker's Wife.

For comparison the Wolf has only two duets, less than Cinderella Prince. Which means that Depp has a smaller role than Jake?

Truth is nobody knows how big or small the roles will be in the movie.

"Truth is nobody knows how big or small the roles will be in the movie."

Very true. I'm sure the film makers are only to cut certain things from the original musical script while expanding other areas of the muscial. Because the truth is the lead characters in that musical are The Baker, The Baker's Wife and the Witch in that exact order. Following them The Storyteller, Jack, Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella are the most important characters in the musical. All the other characters including the two Princes are supporting roles.

It's going to be fun to see how Into The Woods is transferred to screen. The first act is hilarious. It's really fun. The second act is much darker. A few characters will be kicked off. And I'll say this: Cinderella's Prince may have more songs but it's Rapunzel's Prince who has the more emotional material.

What about, say, the fitting of the shoe with Cinderella, Stepmother and Stepsisters?
Jake's Prince does more than singing: he marries Cinderella, seduces Baker's Wife and ends up with Sleeping Beauty. He's the one who "devours" women metaphorically.

In the twitt with photo that i posted, it seems that he was alone with his mom. But no

And yes that seems a lot with the girl at Fat Radish.

Hmm maybe its not the guy from the Tonys, he's short in the Vine thing. But that guy at the Tonys looked familiar not because of Jake, I have seen him somewhere before.

Anonymous said...

These models take pictures with each other all the time, so we don't know if they are really good friends, or if they are work "friends," or what the relationship is right now.

I got the impression that Jake knows a lot of models and dates different ones. I got that from watching him on that Hurricane Sandy relief program with the models. He was the only guy working on the phone bank with all those girls on his shift, and they looked like they were having fun with it.

I think the models try to get along and keep good spirits when they are doing the photo shoots together in a group, like with the Sports Illustrated Swimsuits or Victoria Secrets.

But it does seem a little uncomfortable when everyone knows one another, and works together, and socializes together, and they are all dating the same guys whether it's Jake or Adam Levine or Leo.

Scott said...

I was stunned to see this, just wow. Rest in peace James Gandolfini.

Scott, I had a very similar thought about the shorts :)

Interesting discussion on Into The Woods. I'm fine with a supporting part, as long as the songs are good. Should be an interesting project.

Very sad news about James Gandolfini. So many people reporting that he was a pretty good guy, too. Not just a great actor.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for that, Lara. And a very cute shot from Naomi's twitter.

I am very leery about the new Gyllenhaal social media activity. Part of me thinks Jake should stay very far away. But it is a twitter-ruled world these days.

So sad about James Gandolfini may he RIP.

I don't mind the shorts:)
