OFF TOPIC: MAGGIE IN CANNES


So I know there was some talk of Jake showing up in Cannes to support both Maggie (Paris, je t'aime) and Kirsten (Marie-Antoinette) but looks like he's a no show. And where's Sarsy? Also, for the record, I'm completely in love with Maggie. Lee in Secretary was one of the most endearing and brilliant performances I've ever seen. If I were a lesbian she would be in trouble.

UPDATE: Sarsy located and looking as fine AS!

I have seen a picture of her and Peter in Cannes on Jake's Eyelashes, so he must be accompanying her.
I have not seen Secretary - should I? I understand she gave a great performance in that movie, but SM is definitely not my thing.
I think she is quite lovely and don't understand why some people would call her ugly.

I love these pictures. I can't wait to see Jake cradling the newest arrival! When I imagine Maggie giving her baby to Uncle Jake for the first time... I just melt. Gorgeous blue eyes looking with love at a newborn baby. AAAAAAWWWWWW!!!!

Katie of Sweden said...

She's gorgeous... versatile..like her brother.

Katie of Sweden said...

Forgot to say.. she's doing this tongue thing... like her bro and lika her pa.. :)

Anonymous said...

Yes, Katie, that was exactly what I thought, too! In that second picture, it's not Maggie'slower lip but rather her tongue that slightly protruding. The Gyllenhaals are part lizard -- they use their tongues to pick up vibrations in the air.

britpopbaby said...

I just the pic of Maggie and Peter - it's bootiful, so it's going up!
And yes, watch Secretary, maria!

cina said...

She looks lovely! I think it's cute how she's touching her ring in the second picture. :-)
Btw, anyone know when she's due? Could she be like 5-6 months pregnant or so?

gin said...

The thought of Jake holding a baby does something funny to my insides, too. :) Oy.
I, for one, would recommend Secretary. I thought it was just a cool movie, and, yeah, Maggie was great. How could anyone call her ugly? She's f'n beautiful, just like her brother.
Am I the only one who's going to see Marie Antoinette in the hopes of a Kirsten beheading scene?? (OK, I'm sorry if I offended any Kirsten lovers with that one. Sorry.)

I've been enjoying this site for almost 2 weeks now, absolutely love it!Not sure if anyone else already posted this...here goes:

ENJOY!!!

Gin, I look forward to that scene too. A bad part of me wants Marie Antoinette to be awful, but I expect it will be pretty good.

I love Maggie, she's gorgeous. I feel the same as britpopbaby about her. Maria, you should definitely see Secretary, IMO.

gin said...

I am sure Marie Antoinette will be good. And I do like Kirsten. Truly. OK...no I don't. I try to repress my dislike so that nobody yells at me, but grrrr. I'd like her better if Jake didn't still pine after her. Maybe they're just friends, but I think he pines. He seems like the pining type to me. It's pure jealousy is what it is. I'm cuter than her. ;) OK. I promise to make no more Kirsten comments. She'll get her head chopped off and that's good enough for me.

cina said...

"She'll get her head chopped off and that's good enough for me."

LMAO!!!

Anonymous said...

But gin, if he is a piner the decapitation will just bring out his caring side all the more. Perhaps the end of Marie Antoinette needs to be changed? ;o)

gin said...

Then maybe they could just make her turn into a bat and fly away. ;)

beskyddaren said...

Sarsy... sounds like "Mr Darcy", very nice...

britpopbaby said...

Omg, julia! That bunny thing is hilarious! I'll put it up. Thanks!

tankergirl said...

Wow! She looks better than ever. Check out that skin! And pregnant ladies have the best boobs!
Secretary is a MUST SEE!!!!!!! It's Maggie's "Donnie Darko," if you will.
Imagining Jake holding the baby makes me ovulate, too.

Anna said...

They are such a beautiful couple, I love seeing pics of them. And, with genes like that, their baby is going to be both talented and gorgeous. :D

miffed67 said...

OMG, I *LOVE* her shoes! She's beautiful, what is it about the Gyllehaal eyes that just draws you in till you're drowning? Maggie and Peter look so great together, they make an adorable couple! Can't wait for the little Sarsgaard to show.....

Maria, it might just be after watching the movie - just like BBM may have have brought home to a few us that we actually do like watching two boys enjoy each other's company.

Darn those Gyllenhaals showing us the dark side of the moon every time.

And thank you, Jake and Maggie!

I am a female and I have quite a girl-crush on Maggie. There was a clip of her on the BBC's news footage of the festival last night, looking all doe-eyed and pretty. And that baby is going to be an absolute stunner!

britpopbaby said...

I don't see Secretary as a film about S&M. It's about two people who have their problems and finally find a way to express or release themselves. They can be who they truly are with each other whilst they're hiding from everyone else around them. The S&M part is a metaphor for that message. A literal way to show their connection and understanding. See, ain't I got smarts, Momma?!

nass said...

I was in Cannes yesterday and yes, Maggie and Peter were there together on the red carpet (awww). There was also a guy commenting live, and he managed not only to mispronounce Maggie's last name (imagine a french accent and something like hard G-illal, but also to stumble on Sarsgaard (which sounded like Sagsard or something)!

There's a video of them on the official Cannes festival site, there:

The talk of Secretary reminds me of the write-up EW did on what to give some celebrity couples. The third one is my favorite:

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard

For their still-in-development project, we suggest:

· A swag bag from Sundance

· A puggle, just like Uncle Jake's!

· A V-chip for blocking out Secretary and Kinsey

· Consonants

They also did one for Michelle and Heath:

Mmmmmmm Peter. *purrs and nuzzles computer screen* I don't usually get girl wood over Mags. She's ... interesting looking but she has never done it for me. That is until now. Wow. She looks sensational. Very sexy pregnant lady. And because it can't be said enough Mmmmmmmmm Peter.

squallcloud said...

Maria, it might just be after watching the movie - just like BBM may have have brought home to a few us that we actually do like watching two boys enjoy each other's company.

This was funny and so very precious. BBM is the gift that keeps on giving. I already knew my *ahem* interest in the hijinks that two strappign males coudl get into but I could so see a woman in the theatre having an awakening like "I think I might be getting a little turned on. Well I'll be!" Also "two boys enjoying each other's company" is the classiest thing I've read all day. :o)

britpopbaby said...

Ha! Gifts for Maggie and Peter's baby - consonants!

Katie of Sweden said...

"Imagining Jake holding the baby makes me ovulate"
:-)
And I admitt having bit of a maggie-crush too. And I haven't even seen Secretary. Got to do that..

Anonymous said...

I want our Jakey to be a dad. Being a dad is very sexy. Well, you can't get any sexier than the Gyllenhaal but still... And think about all the good genes he has. He should have 15 kids!!! BTW, I love your blog, britpopbaby

mia said...

"Am I the only one who's going to see Marie Antoinette in the hopes of a Kirsten beheading scene??"
LOL!!!!!

britpopbaby said...

Thanks, anon. I only want to see Jake being a dad if it's to my Vietnamese adopted orphan I'm getting myself when I'm 40.

wtbgirl said...

Secretary is strangely romantic and empowering - its a favorite of mine and I loved Mags, and the flick, long before I even knew who Jake WAS (lord, I can't believe there was a time I got him mixed up with Tobey Maguire - for shame!!!!!).
I remember reading an interview with Mags, and she said Momma Naomi had reservations about Maggie doing it - she didn't want her daughter playing a victim, or a woman debased in any way. Mags explained that she believed in fact that the film was female-empowering, about making personal choices about living life on your own terms, and Momma G was ultimately convinced of the same.
I love the Gyllenhaals.

Bruinsmama said...

Maggie does the same thing with her tongue in pics that Jake does! so cute.

I wish I looked that good when I was knocked.

nass said...

Oops, forgot the link in my earlier comment:

Maggie on the steps in Cannes, talking briefly about filming Paris je t'aime, there:

Thanks for that, nass.

Nothing Really Matters said...

Maggie looks fab.

Anonymous said...

She always looks like a Greek goddess to me. (p.s. that's a good thing)

Agnes said...

Just had a Gyllenhaal night.

I followed your advice and watched Secretary. Loved it, thanks :) and when I was in the video store I rented Moonlight mile and casa de los babys too.

squallcloud said...

If your trying to consume as much Gyllengaard as possible, you CANNOT miss The Dying Gaul. Mmmm Peter does a terrific job and the plot is very interesting. It's not perfect but there is a scene in a board room that washes away all sins.

pepper said...

:O

What a gorgeous couple! I absolutely adore her and that black dress is simply stunning on her!!

LOVE THE BLOG!!

Katie of Sweden said...

I just watched SECRETARY. WOW!!! That was really something! Go see it if you haven't seen it.

kokodee said...

Baby Gyllengaard is gonna be one hell of a cutie!
PS: I love the E baby gift recommendations!

miffed67 said...

I just have to say again I can't get over how gorgeous she is! That black dress is to die for on her!

On another note, blogspot is being hella gay today.
