ER, JAKE, WHAT DID I JUST SAY?



About flirting with other people? Oh, is this how it's gonna be now? Not about to swallow our pride and admit we were wrong? Don't worry, britpopbaby can play hard ball. Or did she just mistake you for a waiter?

Jake wins another award for the World's Most Unprofessional Waiter.

They're gonna have a fit over at WFT - he touched a woman.

Heck, I"M having a fit - he touched a woman and it wasn't me! LOL

Just glad to see the Return of the Gyllenhaal. I was starting to go all "Trainspotting" without my Jake fix, although I would like a new batch of Jake eating sandwiches - well, at least in these pix he was AT a restaurant, assumably consuming food products.

I love the hands-in-the-shirt thing...he's such a lil' cutie. ;)

mrs_dalloway said...

I'm bothered by the using of the word "flirt" and by the amount of touching. It's one of three photos. Too much to handle.

nice anonymous said...

Why is this handsome young man practically mangling the hem of his shirt as he talks with this stranger? He's going to stretch it out dreadfully. Or is he hiding something down under there? In some gestures, it looks as though he's pretending to be pregnant with his own hand.

And still, somehow I find this terribly endearing. That someone so very good-looking and charming could be so restless & perhaps nervous in a social situation.

squallcloud said...

I would have grabbed his hand that touched my shoulder and not let go until someone physically removed me.

squallcloud said...

Oh and also he's like four years old playing with his sweatshirt like that. How cute. *huggles*

squallcloud said...

One more thing, I hope that he was at a meeting with a future director! Damnit! Jakey, sweethear, love cannot live on pap shots alone, You have to get back to work my love.

bookgirltx said...

What's with the stretching out the shirt thing??? Looks like he's trying to hide an erection!

And she better be a blood relative or there's gonna be hell to pay! He can't just go around randomly touching women on the street.

Can you imagine the chaos that will ensue as hordes of women take to the street in hopes of being "touched" by Jake.

I better get my running shoes on.

Yeah, she doesn't seem to appreciate what's happening to her just quite enough!

And he's adorable with the shirt-fiddling!!

So we can get a good look at her and know who we need to hunt down?

Yes how dare that bitch get to see Jake before me and you Brits. The claws will come out and blood will be spilt!

only1annabel said...

I want so much to be mad at you Jake but the endearing hands- playing-with-inside-of-shirt thing is clouding my judgement!
Damn it! Oh to be a random in a restaurant touched by Jake...or just to be touched by Jake...mmmm

Anonymous said...

I think she's hi's ex girlfriend. Not Kirsten, some other with dark hair who was a musician or something. Can't remember her name.

cina said...

I swear I would slide off the chair if I was in that woman's place.

And how cute does he look in those pics?! Fiddling with his shirt, looking like a 12-year old. Oh be still my heart!

Kendra said...

I think that time he was a little upset and showed his nut-self with the first unaware woman he saw.

cina said...

anon 12:32 - do you mean Jenny Lewis?

Well, since we only see her from behind I can't be sure, but I don't think that is her.

wtbgirl said...

Looks more like Famke what's-her-name to me (X-Men chick) to me, from the back, if it's not some random person. Just a thought - but if so, that would explain the nervousness and the touching - he must have met her at the Movie Awards and he was fidgeting during her "Let's Rebecca and I paint each other" bit during the show.

Ivy said...

Okay, so Jake knows that we follow his every move. He bloody well KNOWS. Which means that this public display of overwhelming cuteness is deliberately calculated to make us collectively squee. Gyllenhaal, you damn tease!

nice anonymous said...

Or maybe when Jake's flirting & can't think of anything more to say to a girl, and he wants to impress her, he slowly peels up his shirt and shows off his abdominal muscles and that sexy treasure trail. If so, these pictures make it look like he's contemplating Making His Big Move Soon. Lady, prepare to be mesmerized by the moment when Jake G.'s shirt finally comes off ... live ... and in person.

Anonymous said...

Her dress looks like a bad shower curtain!

wesntia said...

I have to say I'm not liking the shorts. Grandpas have shorts like that...

smurfette said...

nope, no treasure trail this time, just another black tee under the gray one. not a fan of the shorts either, but jake seems to be, as they show up quite a bit-- now if only the camera would give us a full shot, we could complete the sock watch!

Anonymous said...

i think its about time he finds someone to get it on with. these fiddlings with his clothes to hide his erection is cute but i really pity him. he seems to get aroused quite easily these days, most probably due to the fact, that he is not getting laid enough. if you want to challenge that, go over to ihj and look over the first work-out-pics with rp again, his libido seems to get uncontrollable. maybe some empathic human being will be so kind and help him out, wont you.

The Bearded Lady said...

Oh ok Jacob dear, I see it all now. Some little hussy in a shower curtain shows up , and you get all wiggly huh?.....hmmm...Does her vinyl charms make you squirm?. Sure anybody handy with a sewing machine could rip their shower curtain down and sew up this little number. Let me guess the hat that goes with this has a yellow ducky on top? Well it's enough of this humilation! I have already stated that my beard stays until yours goes....well what do I have left to "barter" with?....Backhair....yes thats right I'm gonna let my backhair grow in!...I hope you are truly pleased with yourself....at this rate in a few months I'll be ready for the "Planet of the Apes" revival

jla said...

LOL tbl ;)
Seriously...whose the bitch in my meemaw's floral dress? Oooooh she's going down!! Jake looks so friggin adorable being all fidgety and self-conscious. If he put his hand on my shoulder like that I would construe that as an open invitation to throw him on the ground and mount him!

Jake4Luck said...

Somehow the brunette sitting across from shoulder girl turned into a blonde in the next picture! How wierd!

The Bearded Lady said...

BPB, In light of all these strange (for lack of a better word) "women"...that some contingency plan be explored... a "Planet of the Apes" theme perhaps?... if this idea takes off, he might spend weeks filming in a hot furry suit trying to make his plastic lips move.... Jake do not ..underestimate the power of "Jake Watch" to come up with ideas! .... It is the trend setter here!... the power of suggestion.... is well....powerful!.. T.B.L

Prophecy Girl said...

It is the trend setter here!

Oh, SO TRUE, bl. So true.

nrm, if case I haven't said it in the past oh, hour or so, you crack me up!! *snicker*

And Jake, you're killing me here, pal. KILLING ME. I nominate you for Best Use of a Shirt to Convey Adorableness. You're a shoo-in.

Smurfeyshmoo said...

omg, Nice Anonymous that's hilarious. He could come flirt with me and impress me with the slowly raising shirt ANY time he wants!

gin said...

I don't know what he's thinking putting his hands on that flowery chick, but the shirt-fidget thing is a-freakin-dorable. Oh my gosh. I don't know how anyone can be so cute without regressing back into babyhood. I don't know how anyone can be so adorable and yet so scorchingly hot at the same time. He defies all limitations of How Humans Look. He is above and beyond. Sigh. This is what a simple shirt-fidget by Jake does to me. :)

winterbird said...

it's true... I can't decide if he's flirting or not, cos I am just completely mesmerised by the way he toyed with his shirt... such a cutie.

He doesn't look nervous to me. And the thing between the legs look too flat in the pic. He doesn't have an erection. Look again at the pic.

*Grabs keys and heads to airport.*

Awwwww.....I just wanna hug him! (Full body contact being the goal, y'all!)

queenscroft said...

I'm beginning to feel sorry for pore ol Jake being subjected to so much scrutiny. I don't know what will happen when and if he starts seeing some girl for real. All our heads will explode for sure.

Dani said...

It will be sheer torture when Jake finally gets a girl friend. Just seeing him with this random woman has thrown me into a fit of jealousy. I was on a phone call as I was logging onto the site and as soon as I saw those pictures it was WTF! I lost all train of thought and had no idea what my friend was saying. Immediately I had to read the comments to see if anyone knew who she was, where they were and how did she get so lucky to be touched by him. Everything about Jake makes me crazy, especially if another woman who isn't me is involved. I seriously think I could tolerate him getting a boy friend easier.

queenscroft said...

No way. If Jake really is gay I will CURSE GOD AND DIE!

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^Jake ain't gay. He occasionally has wicked hot man-sex to satisfy our colorful fantasy lives, but other than that, he's looking for a girl for the long term. I'm assuming he's looking for me and we just haven't met yet.

I always find these comments unfortunate because the truth comes down to the fact that we don't know for sure what his sexuality is and if he is gay or bisexual, these comments are the kinds of things that make people in his position too scared to come out.

Anonymous said...

Looks to me like the hand on the shoulder thing is what you do when you have to get going and want to let that person know the conversation is over now. It doesn't seem flirty to me at all.

You have a point there, anon 11:41.

prophecy girl, you're darn right. Now I need a breather...Or a bucket of cold water.

And Jake, you'd better shape up, man. There's a limit to what us Jake girls can take, you runnin around touching other women like that. The horror.

queenscroft said...

Geez guys, my curse God and die comment was meant to be a joke. My big question is, if Jake really is gay and toothy tile then why isn't he open about it? Does he want to be rich and famous so bad that he's prepared to live a lie to please the American public and get studio parts? I just don't buy that.

Personally I do think he could be bisexual or at least follows the Kinsey scale but I don't think he'd hide it just because he wants to be "rich and famous". There is a lot of pressure in Hollywood not to admit to these things and while you may have been joking, others aren't when they say those kinds of things. It isn't always so much that they don't personally want to lose fans but rather that they don't want to lose job opportunities. Unfortunately I've heard of directors (and other people in charge) being unwilling to hire actors that are thought to be gay because they're too afraid that people won't be willing to see their movie if they hire that person no matter how talented said person is. It's an unfortunate thing in this business. Another possible reason could easily be that he doesn't even know for sure what how he feels (which if he follows the Kinsey scale can definitely be confusing sometimes). So perhaps he'd be against making any kind of public statement until he even knows for sure what he wants. Hell there is even the reasoning that he doesn't feel it's anybody's business but his (not to sound too "BBM"). Frankly there are tons of reasons so unless he more directly answers this question, I don't think we can know anything for sure.

queenscroft said...

I can see what your saying. And there aren't many sucessful openly gay actors I can think of. Actually can't think of any. Are there? I might not be very well informed. I certaintly don't want to add to the general nastiness that seems to surround speculating over the sexuality of celebrities. I just want everyone to happy, especially Jake. (Said with tears in eyes). Apologies to anyone offended by "curse God and die" comment. Which comes from the Book of Job, the least fun book of the Bible. And that's saying something.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Queenscroft, apoloiges humbly accepted. And I appreciated it when you added (in regards to happiness) "especially Jake." Print does not always convey the sprit in which words are said.

britpopbaby said...

From what I know about Jake (i.e what I've read and video clips) I honestly don't believe he's the kind of person who would deliberately decieve people about or hide his sexuality just to get on this business. I believe he sees making movies as more of a platform to get messages across but like he's said, he'd be just as happy as a chef or carpenter and that his personal happiness is the most important thing. I'm cynical about Hollywood and I know it's a devious, evil place but I just think Jake is better than that. Ergo, I believe he is straight (and not just because I wanna make the best with two backs with him).

I'm slightly tipsy with vodka and sunstroke if that paragraph made no sense.

Vesper Lynd said...

Personally, thinking about Jake as bisexual, absolutely turns me on!

I think he should remain ambiguous about the matter. Mystery is even sexier than being explicit and creates a mystic atmosphere around him.

Anonymous said...

He used to be very ambiguous but he changed his attitude after Brokeback. I don’t know what he might be and I personally don’t care but I think he is trying to give a clean straight image now. For example, he told People magazine the “I want four kids” comment, he wants to project the image of a straight family-oriented man.

britpopbaby said...

His sexuality is irrelevant but I think he is too honest and principalled to play too much of a PR game.

nice anonymous said...

Well, Jake's only 25, right? And male Hollywood actors generally have a much longer lifespan in motion pictures than their female counterparts (sadly). So Jake could develop professionally in any number of ways during the coming years. And the various choices he makes on & off screen could help determine how open he can be publicly about his sexuality -- if he were indeed gay or bisexual. If he becomes a stage actor, that's one thing. If he sticks to art house films mostly (as he seems to have done), that's another. If he's going after a comic book superhero franchise or if he's going to sell himself as an action hero, that's yet another thing. Poor Jake -- it's like he's a brand name shampoo that has to be marketed. So I wonder where he sees himself going.

I'm not so sure about his young, straight-male fan base. "Donnie Darko" & "Jarhead" are the only two movies he's done that I hear straight guys talking about favorably.

Katie of Sweden said...

Like him like this... Very natural, not caring too much of his looks but still drop dead gorgeous

smurfette said...

i'm with britpop-- i don't care what others think about his sexuality, straight or bi, but i get annoyed when the speculation leads to conclusions about jake playing some PR game. sure, he's smart enough to know what it takes to survive in this business, but even when he's guarded (which is what it takes), he never comes across as less than genuine. everything i've discovered and love about the guy goes against someone who would spin PR crap like that.

Pete said...

Jake is now an A-list actor. Inevitably it leads to him being an image where people project their sexual fantasies. Playing with that is part of the game of being a Hollywood star (no matter if we like the PR game or not), and it will help him to have more power to do whatever he wants with his career (independent films, stage, blockbusters). People have always speculated about the sexuality of legendary actors (Brando, James Dean, Monty Clift). It is part of the game. Being a star is all about charisma and awakening massive (female and male) sexual desire. It doesn’t matter how talented as an actor he is, being a star is about that X factor.

I also like that he is genuine and always made risky intelligent decisions with his career. I hope he continue that way. I also like the humour and class he always shows when approached even with the most trivial and stupid questions in interviews. But I think that he also enjoys the attention he gets. He used to play with that but perhaps now that he is in another level of fame he is tired. It got a little out of hand.

I agree with Pete.

His sexuality might be irrelevant, but we are here endlessly talking about how sexy he is! It is a little contradictory. The same with the paparazzi photos, we are angry about how rude they are and how they are constantly stalking him but we are endlessly analysing and craving for that pictures.

We have to assume that as long as we admire him, we are part of the game that will continue to feed the “sexuality” discussion and the PR machine. It is inevitably part of the system.

Britpopbaby I love this site! I enjoy your humour. And the ladies and gentleman here are the most hilarious group I’ve seen gathered in one site. I hope it continues!

The problem is that people tend to put a lot of hate towards the "PR game" when really it's not so much that they are against it but rather that they are trying to do what's best for their client. For instance, we've heard how badly Jake wanted the role in Jarhead. But what if the director or someone else said 'hey I hear you're bi or I hear you're gay and no matter what you do, we don't want you'. Jake could say well screw you then or he could become depressed because he really wanted this and it's because of either the director/whoever's own prejudices or it's because of the people who are in charge of the movie fearing that they'll alienate some of their hopeful audience. There are a lot of factors involved that he'd have to think about. While as Brit pointed out he has said he'd be happy about being a cook or whatever, that's more on the basis that it's because he chooses to leave acting and do this not because he felt forced and like he had no other choice.

Also if it is the case that he honestly doesn't know himself how he feels about his sexuality then he can really only answer questions as best he can. The fact that he often chooses to be a bit more ambiguous could easily be showing that he wants to leave it open a little just in case he wants to later say he's bisexual or bicurious (or even gay though I tend to go more with bi...).

I don't think it shows him as dishonest but rather just as unsure, cautious, as well as trying to keep some of his private life private. Many men that I have known who have stayed in the closet are all around genuine and honest guys but sharing the information about their sexuality is a COMPLETELY different thing. Being gay and even bi can bring so much hatred that even the most honest people out there can be too scared of coming out.

6:11, brilliant.

I think Jake is fabulous but this HW and the bottom line is you want to work. People pretend it doesn't matter but it does and many of you would be disappointed if you found out Jake was gay or in love with a man. That's what PR is for-to spin the neccessary image in order for their client and themselves to profit. Honesty has nothing to do with that. It's called work.

And Jake has the right to keep his love private, especially after he and Kirsten. I hope he is happy, but I'm not naive. Image is everything.

britpopbaby said...

Image is everything.

I have to disagree in the case of Jake. This isn't Jessica Simpson or Hilary Duff we're talking about here. This is a man whose talent alone is enough for him to survive - like John Malkovich or Johnny Depp. What exactly has his PR spun for him? It's not like he's doing L'Oreal adverts or stepping out to the hottest clubs just to be seen.
Johnny Depp is actually a great example - he told Hollywood to fuck off, started taking on the creepier, less trodden roles and he is doing fine - living in France, minding his own damn business.
And if Jake and his people were that concerned with his 'image', they'd be doing something more to stem the gay rumours - like gettin him an interview with Cosmo or something.


His sexuality might be irrelevant, but we are here endlessly talking about how sexy he is! It is a little contradictory.

Why is this contradictory - his sexuality could be anything and we'd still find him sexy.

I don't mean to go on about this but it's been winding me up. If he's straight he's straight, if he's gay he's gay, if he's bi he's bi and if he likes to holiday in Thailand and visit ladyboys then I hope he buys something nice with his air miles. I just don't think Austin Nichols is his boyfriend and I don't think he's playing some huge PR game to cover anything up. End of.

Anonymous said...

Yaya! Britpopbaby! I agree with you! I think though, if anyone goes the Johnny Depp route it will be Heath. I think Jake is channeling George (heart palpitation) Clooney and he is a very social guy. Plus, he is a child of Hollywood. I have absolute confidence he knows exactly what he's doing. And he has lots of support from his family and friends. I think he's taking a hiatus for a while, bcz, when you get a perfect script, a perfect director and have the film experience of your dreams validated by award nominations, it's a tough act to follow. I hope he will get busy soon, bcz I NEED to see more films with Jakey. LOTS more. But for me his sexuality is a non-issue. I have shoes older than Jake. And my weary but lustful heart will be his ...no matter what. Bcz I have never encountered such a truly beautiful human being. Apologies to my children.

I'm neither of these two people though I have seen them around and as far as I can tell, their comments sound like they are two different people as well.

^^ Thank you anon. there are plenty of places to engage in malicious gossip. A few blogs come to mind...but let's not make it here. Thanks

I don't see how the suggestion that he *might* be bi or gay is malicious. I don't see how those kinds of comments are any different than guessing and joking about him flirting or getting together with girls or hell even some of the mean comments that are said about people like Kirsten.

What exactly has his PR spun for him?

Not making a comment this way or that way about his sexuality when I say this but we don't know what is and what isn't PR spin. It depends on the specific people in charge of his PR (and I don't mean the agency, I mean the actual individuals). Jake has been linked with A LOT of women in the last year (particularly the last few months) but none of these stories have been proven to be true. It could be as easy as the magazines themselves being the ones to make up these rumors. But in some of the cases, usually where they say a "friend" talked to them, it can be PR teams who are leaking false info to the press just to put their client's name out there. Unfortunately this can even happen without Jake's consent because there isn't always a sure way to link it back to the PR people in charge of the false rumors and they can always deny it if Jake does take issue with it.

britpopbaby said...

He has been linked with TWO women. Natalie was fairly explainable and was probably just jumped on by the mags themselves and Gretchen whatshername was plain bizarre.

Well on top of those two there have also been speculations and rumors (online and printed) of him with Sophia Bush, Mischa Barton, Jennifer Aniston (that one was especially ridiculous), Keira Knightly, and Ziyi Zhang. Plus the other random blurbs where they say a "friend" told the press that Jake wants regular civilian girls. And I agree that the Gretchen one was bizarre. Again it could all be the magazines themselves but having done PR myself there have been quite a few of the write-ups that the magazines have given that sounded exactly like PR leaks. I have no doubt they are false rumors and again I can't say it in absolute certainty but it is a good possibility and like I said, it's not necessarily done with Jake's knowledge either. It's the job of the PR people to get his name out there and not all of them think it's a big deal to make up a few rumors to do so esp. since even if the client does have a problem with it, they can easily deny it. Not that this makes them bad people since most celebs have their PR doing this very thing.
