How Maggie Met Her Brother



Jake Gyllenhaal attended the 2014 Met Ball in New York with his sister, Maggie.

Here's Jake arriving at the gala:











Some party and post-party shots:










And here's Jake leaving.

While many were critical of Jake's look for the evening, he was chosen as one of the Best Beards. And the LA Times was happy to see Jake and Maggie:

Jake Gyllenhaal and sister Maggie Gyllenhaal get snuggly: Yeah, the sibling PDA was pretty much adorable.

Yaaay! These are great pictures, UV! I can really appreciate his dinner jacket, too, even if I'm not a fan of the black shirt white jacket look. It's a perfect fit. He looks very trim.

If I can make a "photo assumption" based on this 'evidence', it looks like Jake was pressed into service at the last minute to escort Maggie.

Looks like they had a great time. The Standard's after party seemed like the place to be.

Love the pics! Thanks UV!

Had to look up what PDA meant, tho (the LA Times comment). Well, I agree!

Love the pictures even though I'm not a fan of their ensembles, lol!

Looks like they had fun !!

"it looks like Jake was pressed into service at the last minute to escort Maggie."

That's what I was thinking because Jake did not do the red carpet last year. But I don't think it was last minute but more of little brother you better do it exes or no exes.

bobbyanna said...

I really don't see Jake being that concerned with his "exes." That seems like a media gimmick from US Weekly to add some imaginary drama to the evening.


Reese was there with her husband, Taylor was preoccupied with her friends, taking pictures, etc. and Kristen Dunst seems very settled with Garrett Hedland.

It looked like a festive occasion where most people were hanging out with friends and just having a good time.

I think I actually saw Marcus Mumford in the background talking to Jake in a photo of Frank Ocean in one of the after party photos.

Thanks UV love the pics Jake looks pretty good in most of them I guess it's the anble of the shot that can distort some of them.

Indiewire is showcasing Time To Dance, because the director's first movie will be debuting at Cannes.

Would be nice to see Jake in Cannes again one of these years.

Instead, you might find him on the Lower East Side. Time to add one to the CZ?

Monica said...

I also think it was last minute. And I agree that U.S. Weekly is trying to add drama. As I said earlier, it's not the first time that Jake is in the same party whit his exes, so why would he care now?
He seemed to be having a great time. I love the photo with Erika Badu.

UltraViolet said...

I don't know that all three have ever been at the same party as Jake. It's an easy story. I thought of it when I saw all the attendees.

Added another photo of Jake, from Women's Wear Daily.

Monica said...

Well, I was remembering the vanity fair party, reese and Swift were there. And Dunst was at the Met Ball last year, as well as the drama princess.
My point is that it's not the first time he was in the same place as them.

She's his mother, so she knows for sure that he likes blueberries. She also talks about him being an actor, something that Adam is surprised to hear.

BETTY MAE CASTING is casting SOUTHPAW. A famous boxer falls into despair and addiction after his wife is killed. http://CastingAbout.com


Addiction? Must be the reason why he is still with this look. It is for Southpaw.

Jake's fan said...

Great finding Monica.
It could mean he'll keep this look for the addiction & despair scenes,
then shave it for the scenes where Billy starts putting his life back together gaining his daughter's respect, and for the boxing scenes. Professional boxers don't sport beards during the official fights.

Jake's fan said...

Forgot to add, I'm excited for Southpaw. Can't say I've watched many boxing movies but the ones I saw were great. If done well, boxing movies are great metaphors for life's struggles and the underdogs: first Rocky, Raging Bull, The Fighter. No coincidence these movies won Oscars. Same with The Wrestler (not boxing but close).
This makes the story sound even better for he will have a complex character arch to play: former hero > grief stricken addict > redeemed father > champion who finds his way back.
