QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"When I was in Jarhead, I felt really good about my body, really confident,”
Jake Gyllenhaal, my body is a temple, Shirley Temple.

I felt really good about your body in Jarhead too, Jake. Wait, let me rephrase that - I wish I could have felt your body in Jarhead or any other film for that matter.

Yeah, i kinda felt good about his body there too...:-)

cina said...

Ooohhh I'm SO with you on that, BPB!

Btw, I wonder how Mr Gyllenhaal Sr is doing with our questions...?

Hell yeah! I like him big and beefy!My perfect Jake would be the body of Jarhead but the body of Brokeback! Mmmm!!

Anna_F said...

Damn right he shoulda felt good bout his body! He was looking so so fit in that film. He should get naked in every film he does... y'know just for fun or whatever.

wtbgirl said...

I am more into the Brokeback leaner-body type myself, but hey, I feel good about Jake's body, pretty much all of the time.

Prophecy Girl said...

If he hadn't felt good, I would be concerned. One should always celebrate perfection...and I LOVE how he's so honest about his extreme hotness! Yum, Jake!! :)

zoo said...

Will I be a lone voice of dissent if i say he was a tad too beefy for moi in Jarhead? I mean - don't get me wrong, I wouldn't send him on his way if he came up to me with those biceps and,say, the Bubble Boy hairstyle - but, on the whole, I prefer myJakey a little leaner.

thesweetestone said...

Oh, but in Jarhead he is just to sexy, its not just his body, i like him skinny to, but when i watch jarhead, Im like.....coming

He should get naked in every film he does

Hells yeah! He's said he enjoys being naked, so I'll be very dissappointed if he's NOT!

Altho, I read somewhere he turned down the Bernardo Bertolucci film because of full frontal exposure. Dammit, why didn't he do The Full Monty?

Dangerous Woman said...

Yeah... Bernardo Bertolucci's " The Dreamers". One of my favorite directors.
Can't forgive Jake... no way!

miffed67 said...

^^ Yeah! That's the one! Couldn't remember the name of it, thank you!

No, you're not the only voice of dissent on the "Jarhead" physique. I like him when he's looking leaner as well. Then his body seems more proportionate with his height & features. And more graceful. And also, then I don't worry about whether he's taking steroids or something. That sort of physique reads to me as: Admires self in mirror excessively, spends much time in gym, lives on sports drinks & takes 11 vitamins a day. Not much time left over there for a relationship.

...yeah, for the Dreamers we got Mike Pitt instead :(

Zoo and Wtbgirl, I'm with ya in that I like Jake BBM-style leaner too. He's too beefy and meatheaded in Jarhead. Not that I would have kicked him out of bed for shelling cartridges, mind you...

gin said...

I feel good about his body any time it's devoid of as many clothes as possible. :D

tankergirl said...

Yeah, I like him leaner (& paler), too.
However...this is the physique that gave him the confidence to SHAKE THAT ASS on camera.
Hallelujah!
Amen.

phoebe said...

I never knew Jake was up for a part in "The Dreamers"! Oh boy. What a treat that would've been..

Jakey's body..*sigh*.. Luv it in whatever shape, but I do prefer the leaner type. But hey, who am I to make an informed decision here, I've actually not seen Jarhead yet, only pics from it. Still waiting for that darn DVD to be released here! Aargh...

Patch said...

While I do appreciate all the hard work he must have put in to create the Jarhead body, I would be satisfied with his natural lean physique. I'd even love it if he had a little pot belly that I could kiss and rub and poke and giggle at. Teehee.

Patch said...

Britpopbaby, I couldn't begin to thank you enough for your unbelievably entertaining and hilarious posts about Jake. You have just the right amount of wit, humour and serious admiration and so it is the one blog that I visit religiously. Bless you. xoxo

bookgirltx said...

I'm gonna vote for the leaner, athletic look. Love the ripped stomach and the broad shoulders, especially in the tight, double layered tee-shirts :)

That boy is H.O.T.

cina said...

I hate Michael Pitt, didn't like Dreamers and I'm afraid not even a naked Jake could have saved that movie imho. The way they showed Michael Pitt full frontal wasn't very tasteful so I'm glad Jake didn't do it. (Funny huh, "Pitt" is one of many names for "dick" in Swedish! lol!)

Ivy said...

Yes Jake, we're with you on this. If at any point you feel like beefing up again, don't let us stop you.

Anonymous said...

My favourite physique is Brokeback, as well. That second scene in the tent? Siggghhh....

britpopbaby said...

Thanks, Patch. I try my damn best.
I like butch Jakey! But let's be honest with ourselves - we'd take him however he came..

LInna said...

Hell yes, we would!

Hill said...

Um...I dunno...something about the "I have big muscles and carry a big gun therefore I must be carrying anOTHER big gun" thing gets me every time. I love the shaved head in Jarhead too...all blue eyes and full lips and...

((takes deep breath))

the things I would do to that man, if only given the chance... ;)

Anonymous said...

Oh yeah, his body was amazing in Jarhead . . .

thesweetestone said...

hill, you are so right... i also think about that big ...um... gun...:-)

miffed67 said...

we'd take him however he came..

Heh! Not particularly picky on that score. If he ever shows up on my doorstep, I'm not going to turn him away for having the wrong hair!
