GOOD GOD! I FORGOT TO DO A QUOTE OF THE WEEK!

Thanks to Nothing Really Matters for reminding me of this grievous error. I apologize for that first quote, which wound up not being an actual quote and I take full responsibility for that. So forget whatever you read about "The Hathaway Twins" and feast your minds around this deep thought:

"Some movies you fall a step behind and some you stay in the same place, make the same choices. And then sometimes there are people who know more than you but show you, and that's the maximum you can hope for - doing that with someone who says, "I like you for what you are, and I want you to be in my picture." I didn't have to fake it or put on a mask - all the resources I had inside me were more than adequate. I don't want to pretend to be something ... I'm not pretending any more to fit somebody's mold. That's a long-winded statement but - why not do what you really think, even if it's a mistake?"

Jake "What You See is What You Get" Gyllenhaal. I especially like that last sentence. I think that should be my motto for life.

Aw, what the hell? Let's have two this week:

"We live in a sad time where actors are politicians & politicians are actors."

Damn, Jake! I knew we were soulmates! Let's you and me talk politics next time we're together.

For those still mad about the ESPY's, you're not alone. Also, if I was rich enough to pay for premium cable channels, I would have been watching this Sunday night for my dose of the Gyllenhaal instead. (Thank you, Karin!!)

Did Jake actually say that about Anne Hathaway's breasts? If so, where is that quote published. Just wondering.

Thanks for posting this. Jake, Jake, Jake ;)

nice anonymous said...

I think it's from a satirical Web site, though I'm not sure which one. I believe that Jake just called Anne Hathaway "a beautiful soul" or something Hollywood-ish like that in press conferences when referring to that back-seat scene.

Hathaway at first seemed like the kid sister when the "Brokeback" cast made group appearances. (I mean, on Oprah, did you guys think she was in with the cool kids or not? Didn't seem that way, to me.) But she said some very smart, insightful things during interviews, and I began to really like the girl. (Haven't seen "Prada" yet, but plan to.)

Nothing Really Matters said...

I read it some place, Can’t remember! Someone would have asked him about it!

Prophecy Girl said...

I couldn't verify that the words actually came out of his mouth, so I changed the quote. The replacement is not the most exciting, but we've already done all the ones that involve pee and/or making out with Heath. :(

Nothing Really Matters said...

Sorry my dear that was my fault!

Prophecy Girl said...

Don't worry about it! I just put up a second quote. I should learn to not hit the publish button until I know what I want to say. :D

Oprah asked him if it was true that his favourite scene to film was the one where he got it on with Lureen.

I keep hearing about Entourage and I'm full of questions. Is it really that good? Do we have it on UK telly? What's Marky Mark's involvemetn in it?

Anonymous said...

Well according to Jake, the car scene with Anne was his favourite scene...

zoo said...

Oh and Jeremy Piven is Ellen's cousin! Isn't he?

Just in! - Jake in France w/ Lance.
I'm guessing Tour de France. More evidence of no Matt and Jake friendship. Its all about Lance and cycling.

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ Whoa! He's in France? I need details...

moonbeams said...

Given Lance's caustic comments about the French at Espys(Guess he really crapped on the floor...so to speak...I mean is their anything that he DIDN'T say? Guy needs to seek professional help!) I worry about our Jakey being in France with Lance..(I feel a limerick coming on! Quick! someone help me out here!) I mean, could the French do something mean, and accidently hurt Jakey? I don't mind the French. But if they make Jakey the least bit uncomfortable....I will seriously rethink my attitude. And I will make a formal request that JW agents be deployed to recover him and bring him home.

zoo said...

Lance is very patriotic, isn't he? Did he call them cheese-eating surrender monkeys?

nice anonymous said...

Jake will be fine, I'm sure. The French appreciate beauty when they see it.

(Wouldn't it be funny if Jake went on to Italy, and BritPopBaby got a sighting of him in the street?)

Great quotes by Jake.
As for Armstrongs comments, they were inappropriate.

cina said...

PG - I just KNOW Jake would love to discuss politics with you!

cina said...

Wait, WHAT?? HE'S IN FRANCE??

Prophecy Girl said...

PG - I just KNOW Jake would love to discuss politics with you!
I've often though so. Hee. But I'm so confused about this French development! I'm waiting on confirmation... Anyone? Do we have any French agents?

JoyceDavenport said...

A quick google says Lance is indeed in France - that is so irresistably Limerick inducing-and that he cycled up a mountain with some friends- no mention of Jake tho'. God if he is now cycling up French mountains for fun he is about to be deified- how much more the perfect man can he get (well apart from the toe socks).

There was a young man called Lance
Who took his buddies to France
Come bike with me Jake
See how much you can take
OK -if you shut your mouth in advance.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the info, JoyceDavenport. I wonder if Jake is one of the friends? It is possible. Since Lance and Jake were spotted in Austin, TX, they could have then headed to France. Guess we will have to wait and see if there are any Jake sightings from our European Agents. ;)

Agnes said...

Jake if you are in France can you please make a detour to Sweden ;)

8:00 AM here.

Oh, and I am glad the NY Times criticized the ESPY's "joke". The writers were idiots to write it in the first place and ESPN were assholes for letting it get on air, etc. It is one thing to make a joke about yourself, that shows you don't take yourself too seriously, but not okay to make someone else the butt of a joke.

gin said...

I saw that article yesterday and it made me feel quite satisfied. I didn't think that shit was funny at all.
I love the quotes from Jake. Especially when he rambles. It's so cute.

Girl Friday said...

Could someone provide a source for the Jake in France information?

reitina said...

gin said: I love the quotes from Jake. Especially when he rambles. It's so cute.

har har har. indeed.. but more importantly, behind the rambles, there's an incredibly truthful soul.. how amazing! like you, prophecy girl, jake and i must have been "mates" some time in our previous lives. what he said about anna hathaway, "a beautiful soul", fits him even more appropriately..

errrrr!! how do you call this thing i have for him huh? damn!

Anna said...

LOL! Great limerick, JoyceDavenport!

And I agree with agnes. Jake needs to come to Sweden and get acquainted with his roots! :D

Girl Friday said...

According to this report, Lance was in France on Monday visiting his team mates and should be there till Sunday.

http://www.suburbanchicagonews.com/beaconnews/sports/2_2_AU18_BRIEFS_S10718.asp

He should then be in Iowa next week. Still no word on Jake.

So if we believe online reports Jake was in LA on Friday, Austin, Texas on Saturday and then France yesterday? Yow!

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking Jake-in-France has come from the head of a troll. Great limerick by JD, though.

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ I'm starting to suspect that, too. For some reason I'm being particularly gullible today. I shouldn't have gotten so excited. And Joyce, BRILLIANT as usual! There so should be a book of all the Jake limericks/cheers that have come out of this group. :)

Yep, I concur. Some anon posted the same on WFT.

No, we aren't easily persuaded.

Girl Friday said...

Also, I believe part of the Jake in Austin story may be a troll story. Jake was at a baseball game with Lance and his son? [I'm not referring to that guy's siting on iheartjake.]

The exact same identical story was posted (I'm trying to find it) the week before on a blog with *pictures* from behind Lance, McBongo and Lance's kid. I suppose someone snapped it with a camera phone. It just seemed like someone pulled McBongo out of the story and put Jake in there. Besides, does Lance take people he just met to baseball games with his kid all the time?

Anonymous said...

10:38 How do you know that Jake and Lance just met? Yes, we now only see them togehter cyling, probably PR for the Espys, but Jake just didn't take up the sport andd he has said in the past that he admired Armstrong and thought iof him as a hero. I would think that at some point they may have met up at some Hollywood function or Charity event. That said, I think that both sightings are bogus including the one on IHJ for some reason.

msdonniedarko said...

so ok then guys wheres JAKE?

Nothing Really Matters said...

Jake is at my houes, which is in England okay if you are nice i will get him to post!(i wish)

Girl Friday said...

Hello 10:39, simply based on a preponderance of the evidence including the fact that during recent interviews with Armstrong and previous interviews mentioning Jake's admiration of Armstrong neither mentioned knowing each other for any certain term of time or even having met. Neither have been photographed together prior to their involvement in the ESPYS. Jacob having admired Armstrong never mentioned being friends with the guy or even having met him.

You can find evidence of these things with Matthew Mcconaughey. We know Lance and Matt have known one another for a while. We know that Jake and Matt most likely have as well - at least I did since they're with the same agency and often times they'd probably bump into one another at functions related to that fact. Hell I can't swing a dead cat at any gig without hitting several people I use to work with/met when I was at a party thrown by XYZ/or use to work for someone I did. It's a very small industry indeed.

Agnes said...

So no trip to Sweden then. It's okay I can wait ;)

Seems we may have some troll Jake sightings in France?

Well, here is an iteresting story about Heath having a party and Jake was one of the folks there. Although I don’t like him being called “the other queer from Brokeback.” *rolls eyes* Read about it here.

I don't actually believe that story... I don't know why though. It just appeals to me as untrue. And I agree with you,“the other queer from Brokeback” has a name!!

moonbeams said...

Maybe Heath is channeling his Bob Dylan persona in prep for the film he's getting ready to do. Given that this so-called impeccable source who was allegedly there, didn't even know the name of the person who's birthday it was, I doubt everything else about this gossip item, and I think the person is totally vile. They better not be crossin' the street when I'm in my car. Thank you JD for the limerick!

The Bearded Lady said...

Well where ever Jake may be I want him back in NY. Where WtbGirl has a chance at him!....

Heath was at a benefit for Uganda on the nite in that Jossip column (pics at Heath Ledger Central)so no party at his house. And Jake was in Texas. The whole thing was made up (probably so they could use the "queer" slur.

I take the sighting with a grain of salt, however, if you look at the posting at the Jossip site there is a link to the original posting about seeing Heath/Jake, etc. Although it was posted this Sunday, it says that the party/sighting was the weekend before, which would be the 7th/8th, not this past weekend the 14th/15th. here is the link to the original sighting that Jossip linked.

Anonymous said...

Okay, I don't know what to make of that Jossip article. They made it sound like everyone there got high.

In the past, how often has Jossip been accurate?

Anonymous said...

Lance is an idiot for going along with the joke written for him or coming up with it - who the hell knows and even more stupid is Jake telling Lance its okay. Is Jake that retarded? Doesn't he like Lance? why would he let the guy think it was okay to do that joke - Jake more than anyone should of known that crap was old and tell Lance it would be a BAAAAAAD (and ver overdone) idea.
