STALKING BY PROFESSIONALS

This, ladies, gentlemen and canines is how it is supposed to be done! Three cheers for these resourceful ladies. The one on the left is so focused she even forgot to smile for the camera. Brilliant. I want to see less mosing behind Jake under the pretence of exercising, less infiltrating Oscar ceremonies posing as award statues, less shameless attempts of grabbing attention using pathetic props and more blurry shots obscured by crutches in badly lit restaurants! Bravo.

where and when is this picture from britpopbaby?

Nothing Really Matters said...

That very clever trying to take picture for gorgeous women, but really taking a photo of Jake! A little tip who ever took the photo, use more zoom next time!

Lena said...

these women are my new heroes

cina said...

Hahaha, I hardly noticed Jake there in the background at first! I too would like to know when and where this picture was taken.

kokodee said...

Oh me god! I totally didn't notice our boy in the background: I just thought brit had gone of her marbles again.
Well done ladies, well done!

Nothing Really Matters said...

That so must be the waiter taking the photo! Hey ladies do mind if I take a pic? Lady on left WTF. Lady on right ha, ha, ha you’re so funny sure.

Agnes said...

This is so professional. :)

mrs_dalloway said...

I have to be off-topic a little bit now..alarming discovery:
Jake whispered something to that lady in red!!Evawhat'shername- when he got up on the stage for the best kiss award! What did he say to her? We have to get a specialist here!

Simon Agent 002 said...

Excellent work ladies I'd tip my hat if I wore one!

Simon Agent 002 said...

Well after initial work at the photo lab ...we have come to these conclusions. One attractive dark haired woman across from Jake at 45 degrees to his left....that's the bad news ...the good news is someone else's has a hand in her hair...

The Bearded Lady said...

Well we can only wonder what would have been had the woman with the dark hair wasn't there....ahhh ...P.S. I still see beard in this photo, so Jake my beard is staying put!

Jake4Luck said...

Is that really him? It looks like he has a ring on his right ring finger. I've never seen him wear a ring before in any other picture.

thesweetestone said...

britpopbaby, tell us, where did u get this pic? Im amazed... one day, Ill be one of those women... aiming high? Damn, im ambitious.

Amerika Bound said...

hahaha classic, how the hell did you find this pic?!
Brit, you are fast becoming my new hero!

Simon Agent 002 said...

is this recent? yes it looks like a ring...hmmm

britpopbaby said...

I just found it on Google images. Dunno when but captions says it was in New York.

Miss Twist said...

I am not sure about the ring thing although I do know he wears a few small gold rings on his little finger sometimes, I think someone told me his mum gave them to him or something. Anyway am I the only one who is intregued(I can't spell correctly and watch Jake at the same time, what do you want from me!) by the crutches I am guessing that they belong to the person sat with Jake as they are the other side of the barrier. Does anyone know of any accidents experienced by a member of Jake's family, friends, or cast members? I am trying to find the identity of the mystery person sat with Jake. Hmmm I wonder who it could be?

Ps. Did you notice that Jake is drinking through a straw?

Miss Twist said...

Britpop, did you know the MTV movie awards are on now but coming to an end on UK MTV. But I am told the highlights are repeated tomorrow if you have missed todays as I have.

Nothing Really Matters said...

(uncontrollable sobbing)I don't have UK MTV. Do you have to be rich to get such channels??

Miss Twist said...

I mean MTV in the UK. But I assume you must be rich as I don't have it, I am bribing my friend to tape it for me tomorrow(if she agrees, which she of course will...she just doesn't know yet.) Anyway if you are feeling left out check your email, I sent you some MTV clips. Plus I bet in a few days the whole ceremony will be on youtube or some other site....Now about those cruthes.

OMG, that is brilliant!!! Way to go ladies, lol!

Btw, some possible Jake casting news!!

http://www.twincities.com/mld/twinc...nt/14773459.htm

When he was in St. Paul last month, Altman was in the midst of trying to nail down Jake Gyllenhaal and Woody Harrelson for his next film, a comedy-drama called "Hands on a Hard Body."

and

http://www.thenewstribune.com/sound...p-5173322c.html

' ... And it continues to occur. He’s in talks to make a feature version of the 1997 documentary “Hands on a Hard Body,” about a contest where people try to win a pickup truck by standing with their hands on it continuously for days at a time. Last one still standing, and touching, wins. Billy Bob Thornton is one of the people he hopes to cast in the ensemble, and he plans to start shooting in September.

No mention of Gyllenhaal or Harrelson in this story, but it talks about Billy Bob Thornton as a possibility!


Sounds really excellent to me!!

Nothing Really Matters said...

Miss Twist you sent me an e-mail?? I’m touched.

Miss Twist said...

Ahh I mean I am about to if I can get my computer to work. So touch away...Hahahah!

Nothing Really Matters said...

How can so many people sell signed photos on eBay of Jake can’t be real fans. If he signed a millions things for me I would keep them all! Well maybe give one to Britpop

I am the one who posted the possible Jake/Robert Altman casting news, but I don't know how to code a link. I know the code for italics and bold, but I don't know the code for links. Can anyone help? Thanks!

the restaurant looks like artisanal or balthazar. definitely not pastis as pastis does not have railings.

^^ Well, anon, I tried to post the code for links but blogger read it as a link, even tho I put spaces in so it wouldn't! Sorry!

Thanks for the help, miffed67. Can you just tell me what is supposed to go between the <> brackets. Thanks again!

okay I think I got the code! Here are the links to the possible Jake/Robert Altman stuff.

I think it sounds like a great project with a brilliant director and a great cast!

Shit! The code I used didn't work again for the links....grrr.

miffed67, again would you mind just posting what should go in the tags. Thanks.

br33n said...

I almost didn't see Jakey in the back there! For a second I thought I was on the wrong blog.

Very good tactics, these women are stalking masterminds. I should ask them to teach me a thing or two.

Anonymous said...

I thought he was talking to Freedrich or how ever you spell his name in NY... looked from the pics jake may have had a script in his hands Altman is 81 wow ..

Simon Agent 002 said...

Looks like they were not aware he was there when they took it...what do u think?...very cool whatever the case.

Prophecy Girl said...

I have NOT been keeping up with my Jake Watch duties today!! That picture is awesome. Those women are awesome for making it happen. Oh, I wish it was me!

Yes, it did seem like he had a script from Freundlich. He is probably reading lots of scripts and could take on different projects depending on when they were filming, etc. I am sure he is in demand. This sounds like a great project with a great cast and a brilliant director. I hope he goes for it!

Anonymous said...

He's been picking quality...except possibly of TDAT ...which was more big disaster flick...But I hope he considers carefully and not end up in a flop.. time will tell. I'll be loyal whatever he does...what was the last hit Altman had?...I remember him from the 70's...and his were more midlife type comedies...not a hip cutting edge Indie comedy. but I hope im wrong...and am willing to be corrected

queenscroft said...

Hey what about Gosford Park? And the Prarie Home Companion is getting rave reviews. There is life in the old dog yet.

Anonymous said...

Ok thanks queenscroft...I won't be as worried...lol I guess I'm thinking of the Carol Burnett Alan Alda films...

queenscroft said...

Yeah that sure was a while ago, plus the plot to this movie sounds like one of those dumb commercial rock radio competitions. But it could be funny.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Well once Jake shows up on screen it becomes interesting reguardless of the rest of the movie...case in point: Amazing and Lovely...he seems to radiate from the screen.

Anonymous said...

I just had hoped he would do a hip comedy. Not more mainstream fare.... best way to solve this..Jake become a director/producer...lol

Anonymous said...

The mystery of the Professional Stalkers has been solved.

These pics were taken by one of the DAUGHTER'S of these two women during a weekend birthday celebration in Manhattan for one of the girls' 17th birthday.

They're up on Webshots.

Anonymous said...

Is there any date? and I don't think the people in the pic realize who is in it.

Anonymous said...

Well, I loved "Gosford Park," and I'm reading good things about "A Prairie Home Companion," so maybe Altman is back. Given the large ensemble casts he uses, Jake may not have an enormous part. But it might be a wonderful one. He's certainly picking some fine directors, isn't he?

Simon Agent 002 said...

Yes, and from what I've read so far, who is directing is a important factor for Jake.

Knowing the track record of Altman, Billy Bob, Jake, Woody, etc. and the fact that this is based on a documentary, seems like it could be great and quirky.

I loved "GP" too! and yes "APHC" is getting great reviews. Altman is still a great. I saw him speak in Dec. and he was very good. Don't know how big or small Jake's part would be but Altman certainly wants him and yes Jake has picked great parts and great directors. This sounds really good!

Altman is not mainstream fare at all. He is a legend and a great body of indie films http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000265/.

Simon Agent 002 said...

So did anyone hear if he's looking at a Freundlich role or is it all speculation/rumor

Anonymous said...

This is totally off topic but I saw someone mention on another site about Jake in Homicide: Life on the Street when he was a kid and I just downloaded it a couple of minutes ago to see for myself. Jake was so cute in it despite the fact that it was only a couple of minutes worth. I know grown actors who do a bad job breaking down and crying and little Jake did it perfectly.

Simon Agent 002 said...

I saw that ...and the first thing that came to my mind was oh my god!...he stole the scene...at such a young age too! impressed me.

Anonymous said...

Little Jake was really great in Homicide: Life on the Street!

Btw, Stephen directed that episode.

Haven't heard anything else about it, so I guess it is still speculation/rumor.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Oh ok folks..it's offical MTV did cut his remarks... but left the thank you at the end.....Just saw a replay.

Why on earth do they film the awards one day and screen it ages afterwards? Seems like a bizarre way to run an awards show to me.

Simon Agent 002 said...

That's a good question ...it would have been more exciting live..

queenscroft said...

Yeah, you can understand a delay of an hour or so for editing purposes but days? It sure takes any excitement out of the proceedings.

Simon Agent 002 said...

They used to be able to air these award shows live. I don't see what the problem is?

jla said...

I can't believe I've been gone all day and missed this picture post!

Oh well done ladies...well done!! That is one impressive display of stalking! These lovely women are crafty veterans! So let me get this straight, apparently the correct stalking tactic is to play it cool and act completely clueless and obtuse! None of that giddy giggling and other typical fangirl behavior! Now this is stalking with class! Thanks for the education ladies!!

Simon Agent 002 said...

They definatly cut his remarks. I saw it a second time and watched closely. ...at first I thought it was a case of starting the next event and cutting away...but on second viewing ...no they cut and left the thank you in at the end. So if you watched it, and didn't know, you would most likely not even notice it.

Anonymous said...

No the best techique is to ask him to take your picture for you...Pretending you don't reconize him. Then hand him the camera backwards!

miffed67 said...

anon, I'll try again!

First: <
then the code: a href =
then a " and the URL of the link and another "
then < again and /a>

If you want to name the link (like you can put a 'click here' and that's all that will show, instead of the whole URL, leave off the < and just put a > then the name of the link and then the < /a> at the end. I hope this makes sense, LOL! I know it looks elementary, but I'm trying to fool the webpage into thinking it's text and not a link!

miffed67 said...

Oh, I forgot, no spaces in that code, either.

miffed67 said...

DAMN! I'm sleepy! There IS one space, in the "a href" part, you leave that just as is.

Simon agent 002,could you tell me what remaks they cut as i only saw edited version.Thanks.

It's such a weird car Jake is in.The occupants heads are touching the roof?Wonder where it was taken and when.If we could only trace those two women they could give us the lowdown.lol

Anon 11.07,i don't think it's a car,it looks like they are in a bar of some sort.Is that crutches on the side?Perhaps the women are waitresses?

sunnywather said...

BPB, there are new pictures on IHJ! With ankle socks!!!:)

Dani said...

Regarding the picture of the two ladies with Jake. It also seems to me that perhaps they hadn't noticed Jake at the time the photo was taken. In any case they still got closer to him than I did on my failed stalking mission to Jake territory today. My friend an I drove the streets of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. We went slowly past URTH CAFE, THE COFFEE BEAN and of course SPRINKLES without any siting of Jake. And as of June 8th he was spotted still in town. Oh, well we still got a couple of delicious cup cakes at Sprinkles. And we can claim we stood in the same sacred spot Jake has. Better luck next time. And there will be a next time!

Dani said...

I wanted to add that among all the new pictures on IHJ there is one of Jake and Spike Lee. Looks like Jake could get lucky one day and add Spike Lee to his list of great directors he has worked with. He definitely has a plan and so far it's paying off. I hope Spike will keep Jake in mind for something great.

cina said...

Ps. Did you notice that Jake is drinking through a straw?

Yes I did! A totally random observation, but I just thought he looked so funny. lol

Creepy. Talk about invasion of privacy. Cyber stalking is okay when it's playful but real stalking is sick. Get help.

cina said...

For italic writing put < > with an "i" inbetween right before the text you want to be in italic, and right after the text you put < / > with an "i" after the /. (There are not supposed to be any spaces in the tags, I just have to use spaces now when showing you how to do it.) If you want to write in bald, put a "b" instead of an "i" between the < >.

I hope this makes at least some sense, because God I suck at explaining things like this!!

To Anom....This is the uncut quote: "Thank you,not just from me , but from all those struggling with love, which is all of us, uh , as we continue to " the last part was cut out " uh,as we continue to" then after this cut MTV left his thank you in...so when you hear it sounds seamless.

What's so creepy about driving down a street looking at public places filled with people to see if you see your favorite celebrity? It's not like we were looking for his house to invade his privacy. When you're in the Hollywood area it's only natural to want to see any star - even one that's not your particular favorite. And even if I had seen him there's nothing I could have done. I was in a car. I don't think hoping to get a glimpse of him is any creepier than people posting about what they would like to DO with him or to him if they had the chance. I would never accost him or anyone even if I came face to face with him. I would be nothing but respecfull. Even though I am currently a victim of this insanity that it Jake addiction I wouldn't want anyone in the real world to know - let alone him.

Nice anonymous said...

So Kerry and Jeannie are out together on a mission to spot Jake Gyllenhaal -- only they don't tell their husbands, Matt & Bob, who say they are getting too old for that kind of stuff -- and they follow him discreetly into this place where they each can barely afford a glass of wine. Would you believe the prices? Oh, but it was a classy place, and it was worth it, because they persuaded their very handsome waiter, Josh, to photograph them, very casually, with the handsome Jake G. appearing in the background. So now, aside from having this great picture to use as a screen saver & to pin on the wall of their cubicles at the office, they get themselves plastered all over the Internet. What fun! Wish I was them! Imagine how, once they left the restaurant, they screamed in the parking lot & jumped up & down & hugged each other gleefully. Mission accomplished!
