JAKE ENJOYS WORLD'S SMALLEST BOWL OF SALAD AND THEN ATTEMPTS TO HIDE FROM US



Sometimes, Jake, you confuse old britpopbaby. You've had at least two years experience of being stalked now, yet in this instance, you choose some nerdy looking Jimmy Fallon imposter to try and shield yourself from us. Quoi? Good to see Sarsy was there to whisk you off to a more secure location, hopefully involving walls and how sweet, you two are mirroring each other. Actually that's quite eerie. Eerie Indiana.

Pics from IHJ - including a woman with Gnarls-Barkley-level crazy hair.

The grandpa-shorts strike again. *sigh*

And yes, the picture of Sarsy and Jakey is creepy to say the least. Maybe they're twins separated at birth. On second thought, I hope not: that would be a thousand times creepier.

Brit, I like the new header!...I see the head transplant was successful! ....And yes, he's trying to hide...we have agents all over him now....but he should pick a taller person next time!....

I love the head transplant too simon.
The woman with the gnarls barley hair was totally distracting. I was laughing my head off, lol!

Agnes said...

By now he must now that agents are everywhere but Jake you can't hide. Anyway not like this you have to do better than this

J said...

Sarsy and Jakey are obviously taking Walk Like A Star lessons. What the camera doesn't show is the instructor barking orders at them from the sidewalk: "And step! And arm! Touch chest! And step!...". You can see by the intense concentration on their faces that this instruction is not something they take lightly. Early indications are that they are apt pupils, possibly top-of-the-class material. Of course it benefits both of them to be friends with a classmate - they can practice together and pick each other up on their mistakes. Good work, boys - carry on!

Well, after Jake's read all the comments written here about his pot belly and man-boobs (or, rather, after he's been briefed on the comments by his CAA representative, who's summarizing a memo prepared by a summer intern, an Ivy Leaguer who likely got his/her position through blatant nepotism -- did you follow all the hierarchical levels included within this one parenthetical remark?) -- no wonder Jakey is hunched over the world's smallest salad. Now he's sorry he ate all that elaborate Italian cuisine the night before.

Still. What amazes me is that, even when Jake's wearing his sloppy oversized clothes, even when he's hidden behind sunglasses, even as his face slowly disappears beneath an unchecked onslaught of ever-increasing facial hair -- he's still Got It. Much, much more so than that spruced-up guy in the dressy pair of slacks who's half-concealing him. He's Got It, and that guy doesn't. Life is unfair, you know? The apportionment of charisma is really unfair.

Amerika Bound said...

hahaha that's too cute!!

thesweetestone said...

nice annonymous- yes, hes still got it. Im just scared now he sees beard, sunglasses, oversized clothes etc. arent enough, hell start walking around with big sack over his head...

and even then- he will still have it:-)

The Bearded Lady said...

It's reassuring to hear that his charisma has not taken a hit with everyone....but cut the hair , shave the beard , wear a bit better fitting clothes...and it would soar significantly with me. ;)

claire said...

hahahaha!!! I am proverbially pissing myself at that mirroring pic - just shows how in tune sarsy is with the gyllenhaals now, in fact careful mags, its almost incestuous

He is just bootiful as he is.The more hair,the better.

miffed67 said...

britpop, the new banner is FABulous, dahling!

LMAO, nice anon!

Jake's just gorgeous! You can run, but you can't hide, baby! Funny he doesn't know that by now.

miffed67 said...

AND OMG! Sarsy SHAVED! Oh...the humanity!

He was spending entirely too much time walking around with those water bottles. I'm glad someone sat him down and insisted he eat. I don't think he was hiding per se. I think he was looking for something and that foolish, foolish young man walked up and stood there never even realizing what he was doing! Or who he was doing it too. Does he not realize he was in the presence of the most beautiful, delicious morsel God ever made? (Which begs the question, is God a woman or is he gay? Bcz he'd have to be one or the other to make Gyllie!) And did he not realize that he was BLOCKING OUR VIEW? I think Jakey was willingly making a pledge to Saarsy. I think Peter was say, "OK, Jakey, hand to heart...Say it:I will not go to 60 Thompson Street hoping to run into any of my ex-girlfriends!" And Jakey, bless his heart,said, "I'll try!"

maxie said...

He dresses just like my husband (and that is not an endorsement of the look, believe me.) We've had rounds about those voluminous shorts, but guys really like 'em. Arguing about it just brings out the full-on male fashion whine: "But they're comfortable!" There's nothing you can do but grit your teeth and remind yourself that you didn't marry him for his fashion sense.

At least Jake seems to favor new t-shirts. My hubbie has some that he's been wearing since college and they aren't pretty.

Jake, being the most gorgeous man on the planet, wears even these baggy clothes beautifully. But even when he's in the most incredible italian designer suit imaginable, tailored to perfection, there's always something a little off. Tie askew, zipper tag sticking out a little, button coming undone. He's not a fashion guy at heart.

He's an LA brat and we are absurdly casual out here, so maybe that explains it. Still, how much do I love the Acadamy Awards tuxedo look? Oh, sweet Jesus...

Britpop, I like the new header---but why oh why aren't Atticus and Naomi Gyllenhaal listed in the cast?

allye said...

The spooky thing about the pic of Jake and Sarsy is how much Sarsy looks like Heath! I thought it WAS Heath and Jake at first!
Wish it had been!

Nothing Really Matters said...

Yeah that is kinda spooky that they are mirroring each other!

Great new header Brit, no doubt been working hard!

~DKBB~ said...

Wonderful new header, gorgeous pictures....nice start to a Saturday, I'd say! ;)

Anonymous said...

Jake, if that salad did it for me, I'd be as beautiful (from the neck down of course) as you. But.....it just wont do!!!

The Bearded Lady said...

It's a bit odd...(and I do know odd) that they are so in sync in their movements... I'm left to wonder who is the leader and who is the follower ?? hmmmm.... ??? any opinions?

Kendra said...

It's so cute: Jake and his minimum salad. He is maintaining himself thin, making sacrifices to continue starring in Jake Watch although he's craving for a KFC bucket and banana icecream.

Huh? Except for the hair color, Peter doesn't look like Heath at all!

Katie of Sweden said...

Oh this is really spoooky! Mirroring each other like that. I don't know but it's really odd they shared room during Jarhead. I'm not sure I would have wanted my bro and (imaginary) bf be that close friends...

I get the Heath resemblance.. Sarsy's forehead, nose and hair is Heathish!

Katie of Sweden said...

Interesting thing: "Chris was wearing those same shorts the other day while he and Jake were playing B-Ball, i hope Jake washed them or maybe he like Chris' man sweat." (Pointed out in a wft-comment)

The Bearded Lady said...

Katie...LOL...I don't know if I'd want my bf to be close friends with my brother.. I think it's kinda sweet because now Jake has a brother....

twistedfate said...

The mirror walk seems to be something that jake experiences with close memebers of his family.
It reminds me of those pics of him and Maggie, walking in total sync.

Katie of Sweden said...

Maybe Maggie is the birthmother for Jake and Sarsy :o) (noooo just kidding, ok?!)

The Bearded Lady said...

I wonder how agent WtbGirl made out last night?... is she taking basketball lessons at the YWCA?..is she ready to hold court with Jake?...P.S..no news on the agent Plaid front...like a blip on the radar screen then gone! Was she really a double agent?...Looks like it's back to the bat cave for me.

mrs_dalloway said...

Did he lose wieght?I'm glad to see that microscopic salad.The 'I dropped smth' tehnique of hiding is actually a way to measure himself..'If this guy can cover me,I'm ok.Damn,why isn't he larger..'

britpopbaby said...

Britpop, I like the new header---but why oh why aren't Atticus and Naomi Gyllenhaal listed in the cast?

Because I ran out of room :(

cina said...

LMAO at the guy in front of Jake! What the hell is he doing standing like that?! He looks guilty as hell, but for what I don't know. Deliberate hiding of the Jakester? LOL

The new banner is fab, btw!

If Jake is really trying to hide he looks a bit silly. How could he possibly think no one would notice him. If he's tired of the paps then he better stay inside. This will only make them want to pursue him more.....
He does look like he's cutting back on his food consumption lately and all that increased acivity with the personal trainer and what not. I hope he's getting ready for another movie. Too much leisure time - especially in New York - may lead him to temptations he'd be better off staying away from....
Even though I love the beard, a little less of it would be nice. I miss seeing more of his face. Just the stubble would be good enough for me. I hope this increasing growth of hair is not a disguise attempt. If that's the case he should know by now it's not working!!!

Anonymous said...

LOL, okay I feel bad laughing when he's seems to be trying so hard to hide but he just looks so cute/funny there. He looks like a little kid playing hide and seek but not very well.

Marie said...

Looks like Jake has dropped something and is trying to pick it up in the second picture. How sad that I've analyzed it so closely.

And the mirroring thing is kinda weird. But I like it. They are both looking fine. I can go either way on the Jake facial hair issue. But my preference is for light stubble.

"I wonder how agent WtbGirl made out last night?... is she taking basketball lessons at the YWCA?..is she ready to hold court with Jake?..."

wtbgirl is currently recovering after doing Jake-watch duty late into the night at The Spotted Pig. Unfortunately, the tricky Gyllenhaal eluded me, again, as he must have chosen another West Village or Soho establishment for his Saturday night food/drinks/general merriment.

In the interests of general celeb-watching, I did, however, meet Colin Farrell (sitting right next to me at the bar), who is surprisingly hot (I always thought he looked like a Muppet), and who was, even more surprisingly, sober.

Anonymous said...

wtbgirl, I am SO happy for you! And delighted to know Colin is committed to trying to stay sober.
He seems like a friendly, unpretentious kind of guy. Details, plz. plz. I always thought he was hot! Of course, he's no where in the same category as Jakey. But then, no one is in the same category as Jakey. There's Jake and then there's everyone else.

wtbgirl said...

anon 11:37, you asked, so here goes ...

THE COLIN ENCOUNTER: He was great, actually. I can now see why so many ladies in Hollywood tapped that - utterly unpretentious, not into any celebrity crap. Waited for a table just like everybody else. And the man has charisma. I didn't even know it was him when he sat down, my friend said "Some hot guy just sat down next to you," praying it was Jake (LOL) I turned to look, he looked back and said (the brogue is killer btw) "And how are YOU doing this evening?" I probably turned beet red (I'm a blusher) but, I guess that had some appeal, because he bought me and my friend some Old Speckled Hens and we all hung out until his table was ready, just normal "chatting with guy in bar" conversation (the World Cup was heavily discussed). A few people came up to him over the next 45 minutes or so, and he was very nice to everyone. I can't believe his willpower - with all the post-soccer-heavy-drinking-of-ale going on around him, the man stayed on the straight and narrow.

The Bearded Lady said...

Clearly agent Wtbgirl, you are an example of the true James Bond tradition. Excellent work! I hope it wasn't all work. But some play too.

cina said...

wtbgirl - that is so cool! :-)
Now let's hope it's Jake next time. ;-)

britpopbaby said...

OMG! That's so cool wtbgirl! Did he say who he was supporting in the World Cup?

And Old Speckled Hen? I had no idea they sold that outside of old English pubs!

nice anonymous said...

Wtbgirl, that's excellent and it is giving you wonderful practice for your eventual face-to-face meeting with Our Boy. You're to be commended for staying cool & chatting with him like he's just a regular guy. Which, maybe he is. (And to tell the truth, I'm kind of curious about the "Miami Vice" movie.)

Colin, you're great, but you're not Jake.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Colin is great...and so is Jake.

wtbgirl said...

Brit: He's got a soft spot for the Aussies, but thinks the match with Italy could be tough for them. (Apparently he lived in Australia for awhile, I can only imagine the hell he raised there - LOL!) He also likes the whole Ghana story, but doesn't think they'll win.
He said that his dad and uncle were both professional football players - more fun facts about Colin Farrell that I did not know!
I'd love to say that I could act this normal with Jake, as I held my own with the lusty Irishman himself, but I fear a Jake encounter could turn me into a blubbering puddle of goo.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Yeah I saw the E! true hollywood story on him and yes he did live for a while in australlia

Anonymous said...

anonymous 11:37 am, here. I could just HUG you, wtbgirl!!! I am SO proud of you. I think Miami Vice will not show Colin in the best light, bcz he was still drinking heavily and partying wildly during that shoot. Michale Mann was difficult and the shoot was not a very good environment. I have every confidence in you! WHEN you meet Jakey, you will be just fine. Perhaps we can help make a list of interesting questions to ask him in a normal conversational way and you can just chat him up. Of course, you must surreptitiously call us to give us exact location. We will then deploy!

mop said...

Second picture looks like he's listening to that guy's ass for a pulse.

Anonymous said...

Maybe the guy was passing gas and poor Jakey got out of the way as quickly as he could.

msdonniedarko said...

man i wonder if jake does know that jake watch is watching him! he should join us or leave some comments!

bree said...

It warms my heart to know that Colin Farrell was supporting my beloved Aussies. Yes, I am still heart broken about the end of that game with Italy. *sniffs*
