ANALYSE THIS



(CLICK TO ENLARGE)

I guess they do look more like friends here but don't they look splendid together? Natalie is like half the size of Jake! And what the dickens is young Gyllenhaal doing in this pic....

Yep, this is clear photographic evidence of true love. We expect an engagement announcement any day. After an initial period of deep depression and confusion I am now fully supportive. Yay for Jake and Natalie - shall we say "Jakalie" for future reference?

queenscroft said...

Or NJ? Sounds kinda hood

queenscroft said...

And I think it is clear that in the last photo Jake is mocking the two strange looking bald men. How could you not?

claire said...

I think that last picture is one of those uncomfortable moments when someone tells you to look over at something and you both laugh at it, but at the same time someone else just walks into view and it looks like you're laughing at them. And then they walk away feeling all paranoid that there's something wrong with them and next thing they end up in therapy all because of bad timing.

They look quite sweet together (Jake and Natalie - not the 2 bald blokes although I'm sure they're very happy together) but I reckon they like each a lot but just don't want to take it that step further as it might destroy their friendship.

You are probably right Claire, but the photo does look funny. Don't know about the "destroying friendship" angle. Only time will tell. But I still want to sort out what we will call this alleged, supposed, maybe, maybe not connection... Port-enhall?

Anonymous said...

Well, at least they look like they're having a good time. If they're indeed together, it may not be very serious at the moment because, honestly, they look like friends without the benefits, as the gawker sighting said. But there seem to be good chemistry among them.

I'd love to see them play a couple in a movie. That'll be nice too. Natalie Portman is such a great actress.

queenscroft said...

Yeah, but the kisses would look a little awkward! The height difference could lead to some great romantic comedy. I read that Natalie wants to do one. Great idea.

claire said...

Portenhall....or Gyllenman?!

Hedaa Parsons said...

They look adorable together whatever the relationship. And I agree with queenscroft, it does look like Jake is mocking the 2 bald guys and Natalie is laughing at them !

queenscroft said...

Gyllenman just sounds wock. As does Portenhall. And you just can't connect Natalie and Jake with Nat's name first. Natake just doesn't work. Its a serious quandry. We might just have to work with Jakalie, rolls off the tongue.

queenscroft said...

I've just realised that the two bald guys are probably gilded moose operatives preventing Jake and Nat from STEPPING OFF THE CURB!See the gilded moose blog for explanation.

Nothing Really Matters said...

Personally I think its Britpop in the background that they are looking with a Jake Watch T-shirt on! Jake’s thinking where can I get one from? Natalie thinking that’s pretty cool I want one.

I think they are just close friends without benefits!

Nothing Really Matters said...

I’m liking this banner!

queenscroft said...

yeah its cool, kinda funny

queenscroft said...

It gives a certain psuedo-seriousness to the proceedings

tankergirl said...

He takes his sunglasses off for this woman! We need to keep her around!

britpopbaby said...

I've just realised I've spelt 'goggles' as 'googles' on the banner. That deserves a massive DOH!

Nothing Really Matters said...

more changes! It just get better!

cina said...

It sure is obvious they like each others company alot, and they do make a great couple. Still, I get the "friends without benefits"-vibe from them. A lot of affection, yes. But romance? No.
But as I've said before - they have my blessing! (as if they need it.... lol!)

Anonymous said...

The story with the pictures in the tabloid was that they kissed at some point. IF the paps are following them and taking a million pictures, why isn't one of the pictures released a picture of them kissing?

Ivy said...

She's such a cutie! And they look so lovely together! They do seem fairly platonic though. Natalie has a serious amount of poise - if Jake had presented me with a bunch of flowers I'd be running up and down the road, brandishing them ferociously and shouting "JAKE GYLLENHAAL BOUGHT ME FLOWERS! ENVY ME, YOU FUCKERS!!!!!" What a lovely young lady (Natalie Portman, not me).

thesweetestone said...

Haha, youre right ivy, if he bought me floweres Id ...well, probably WAKE UP, but if it was by any chance real, id act like a epileptic chiuwawa on ectasy!

thesweetestone said...

Oh btw i had a nightmare about jake- I lost my cellphone in my dream and i rememberd he gave me his number (in my dream he wasnt famous, he looked just like he looked in donnie darko and i knew he was THE ONE- yeah i know, sad). so i realized now i dont know how to reach him again since his number was 4ever lost. i woke up crying:-(

Laureb / 407 said...

Teehee that last pic is awesome. I <3 your layout by the way (sorry I haven't been able to do anything, lol. GCSEs suck hehe)

Anonymous said...

Why is it Jake always looks relaxed and happy after having a meal with everyone in the world except his poor mother?

cina said...

I just want to let you know that I love the new layout too! :-)

I used to have similar dreams, except that in them I was dating Mr. Darcy and my English teacher tried to steal him from me. Thankfully she was an old British bat, so she didn't stand a chance and I didn't have to wake up crying. And what did that have to do with anything? I don't know, I'm just bored so excuse my ramblings :)

Btw, the new look is great - love the new banner.

littleguitar said...

I have to tell you, every time I see a post on this blog lately I get more and more annoyed at myself. I just got back from New York and it's clear that I was there at the same time as not only Jake, but now Natalie, the other love of my life! I even spent a lot of time in the village, how oh how did I miss them?? What's even more annoying is that at one point, I saw two or three suspiciously pap looking people with cameras hanging around outside of a building one day and I thought jokingly to myself, "I bet they are waiting for Jake, hehe" Now come to find out they probably were! I'm literally kicking myself in the ass as I type this...

wtbgirl said...

There ia a picture from 2002 (!) of Jake and Natalie, with his arms wrapped tightly around her. If anything ever looked like a "romantic" photog, that was it. Why didn't they get engaged then? Did the Dunster come in and steal him away? Doubtful.
If they are together, cool, I said yesterday Natalie is about the only Hollywood actress worthy of the Gyllenhaal, but I'm still getting the friend vibe here. In any event, like the faux Grethcen love-match, time will soon tell, as he can't get the paps off his back.

Dem-bone said...

Jakalie, huh? How is that pronounced?

Long 'a' or short?

Anonymous said...

Somebody's said something about the "engagement announcement" here. Although I really like Natalie and all, and I want Jakey to be happy, I'm NOT ready for this. Jake Gyllenhall as a married man and a father of the family? I'm dying here... And I would be afraid of having such a gourgeous guy for a husband with all these women(and men too)lusting after him. I've read somewhere that Kirsten started to feel really jealous about Jake when his career went into orbit and there were all these girls more than willing to worship at the Gyllenhaal's altar. It must be really hard to maintain a healthy relationship with a guy about whom one half of the people is thinking: "For God's sake, take your shirt off!" and the other one :"I would do you till your brains fell out".

only1annabel said...

Ever since I saw 'Garden State' I wanted to be Natalie Portman she's definately a fave actress of mine. And now with these pics I want to be her even more!
I always heard that she and Jake were mates so maybe thats all it is. I wouldn't mind if they got together, I'd obviuosly be jealous but I'd get over it! From what I've heard tho Natalie likes to keep her private life private so if it were true I doubt she'd be willing to be photographed! Well here's hoping anyway! They do look cute tho!!

Anonymous said...

Hee, Jake looks like a total dork in that last photo. Ever since I saw his bafta acceptance speech I've always thought he must be rather dorky in real life, away from the PR bit whre he has to act all cool and collected. His totally genuine dorky reaction at the baftas just really endeared him to me. ^^

mop said...

Maybe they are "just" friends. But if she's not hitting that, she's an idiot. It's not like you gotta marry him, Natalie.

Anonymous said...

I still like the original Jake Watch header darling.This one makes it look less professional.The other one is more classy.(JMO)XXX

Anonymous said...

I gotta be honest.I don't even know Natalie Portman.Has she done famous well known films?I wouldn't recognise her or her name,so just wondering?The only time i knew of her was because i have seen her mentioned as a buddy of Jake's.I guess i'm the only one who doesn't give a toss.lol

Anonymous said...

I didn't know who she was either. I know she was in the Vendetta picture. I found out about so many more actors since having an interest in Jake. Before this, if an actor wasn't pretty well-known by others, I certainly wouldn't know who they were. Now for some reason, I have more interest in the lesser known ones.

Anonymous said...

For everyone who wants to know more about Natalie:there is a quite interesting article on Portman (real surname Hershlag)on wikipedia.org. There is some information about her roots (she's very Jewish:), her career and education. The more I read about her the more I like her.

Nothing Really Matters said...

Natalie Portman has done lots of films. Star Wars I, II and III, Pretty big movies! Cold Mountain, Closer, V for Vendetta.

Fattie said...

i'm confused...she's holding the flowers, holding the flowers...not holding the flowers (in his bag, is he carrying them for her?)...then holding the flowers
interesting indeed

Anonymous said...

It's one of the little annoyances of life: ihj posts pics in no particular order. It just makes it that much more difficult to figure out what's going on.

pepper said...

fattie -

You're right, there is an interesting flower dissapearance in these photos. Perhaps she shoved them in her pocket? (second last pic) it seems a bit unlikely, or perhaps, being the dainty gentleman that he his, decided to carry them for her. awww

bookgirltx said...

I've loved Natalie Portman since I first saw her in "The Professional", one of my all time fave movies! She and Jake would be perfect together, both are smart, talented, funny, way to cute for their own good and seem so happy around each other. But even if they are just friends, wouldn't you like to hang around with them!

BTW, love the new updated site, especially the fonts.

Anonymous said...

I think the flowers are in the bag over his shoulder in the second to last pic; I can just see a dot or two of pink.

Anonymous said...

I'm just slightly girl-crushing on Natalie. It is so unfair that some humans can find jeans that look that good on them.

Of course they are probably two hundred+ dollar jeans. That might help.

How teeny is she, anyway? 5' nothing?

Nothing Really Matters said...

I think maybe in the 3rd picture Jake has not given the flowers to Natalie yet!

Anonymous said...

Jake said the following back in 2002. To me, the pictures of them here still look just like good friends and this is partly why I doubt Jake's feelings have really changed since this quote. I wish people were more accepting of Hollywood stars who are friends w/o seeing the need to pair them up:

The 21-year old The Good Girl actor is fed up with reports he is dating the Star Wars beauty and wants to set the record straight. He insists, "We're just friends. You know, when you sit next to someone while you're out to dinner with friends and reporters are there, 'sitting next to each other' becomes 'snogging' very quickly. She's a buddy."

Anonymous said...

She's beautiful, but she could've dressed a little better. I mean, if it were me meeting Jake, I would've dressed like a goddess. Come on Natalie, I know you got the funds.

queenscroft said...

Well Jake hasn't exactly gone all out on the grooming either. I'm sure plenty of guys would have made more effort if they had a date with Natalie Portman.

Anonymous said...

Except for the height difference, these two look more like brother and sister than Jake and Maggie do.

silver said...

I think if I didnt see the pic of Jake waiting for Nat, I would think they are "just friends" too. But just look at him waiting for her... I'm not gonna speculate, but its a bit obvious he's going goo-goo-ga-ga...

Anonymous said...

In light of Silver's comment, I'm going to say: yes to all. IOW, the body language when the two are together couldn't scream just!friends! more loudly. But I gotta say, the waiting pics scream "been crushing on this girl forever, now I'm all grown up and handsome and not all goofy and everything and maybe, MAYBE she will see me as a grown up this time...gotta be cool, play it cool man, don't blow it...DAMN it, DON'T bite your nails man!"

And so on. And then she shows and he doesn't want her to know he's all crushing on her still so he tries to play it cool, except that dumps him right back into The Friend Zone...she's prob. telling him all about her breakup with Gael or whatever, and he's all sympathetic...Make your move, man! Shoulder-to-cry-on guy never gets the girl!

Maybe it's just my fantasy, but he totally seems like one of those "why do I always end up in The Friend Zone?" guys.

^ Love it!

queenscroft said...

That's some cute analysis of the situation. It makes me want to believe its all true.

Anonymous said...

I love them together here -- even if Natalie's forehead does look endless when her hair's scraped back like this, so that she somewhat resembles the bald clones walking past them in the last photo. But I fear that imagining a pairing here is wishful thinking on my part. (Sigh.)

I imagine something more like this:

Jake, after dialing Natalie: "Haven't seen you in a while, girl. How's it going? You wanna meet for lunch?"

Natalie: "Yeah, there's a lot to catch up on. How are you doing, Jakey?"

Jake: "Well, I get followed around and photographed every time I leave my apartment. I mean, I had no fucking idea it would be like this."

Natalie: "I hear all kinds of gossip about who you're with. Is it planted? There was something two weeks ago about an Olympic snowboarder?"

Jake: "Well, if we go to lunch, that will give them something to talk about. Let's do it, Nat."

Anon 7:33 AM, thanks for the article. It is however from March. Not to say that Natalie and Gael aren't still together, but that interview was a couple of months ago.

Whether they are just friends or possibly a couple, Jake and Natalie look adorable together.

I think it is so great that Jake has so many friends and seems to be so well liked. Makes me love him even more! :)

Anonymous said...

Er, he just looks like he's waiting to me. She might be running late or he may indeed be excited to see her but more because it's not like they can get together all the time to hang out because of their schedules. Hell he could even be excited/nervous about something else and he's having to think about it because he's waiting. It's impossible to tell and I'd say their body language when they are together would tell more about their relationship than when he's just waiting since it could mean anything at that point and not even have to do with her there. I think people read a little too much into some pictures.

I think so, too, they make an adorable couple. If they are just friends, then DARN. Would love to see them date!

Hey...think he's surfing JW on that Blackberry? LOL!

7:33 Natlalie and Gael have been over for a few months now and when they were, it wasn't serious. While Jake and Natalie were in NY, Gael was in Cannes promoting Babel, if they were still together she would be in Cannes not only to be near his side but she had a film to promote as well, an ensemble piece which name escapes me at the moment that also starred Jake's sister Maggie along with Elijah wood and Gena Rowlands. Also, the split was friendly, he evn visited her on the set of a movie she was filming in Toronto with Dustin Hoffman.

J and N look like friends. She bought the flowers too, judging by the flowers themselves.

No, she didn't buy them. You can see Jake with the flowers in his bag as he is waiting for her.
