A POPPA POST

JAKE STEPHEN SECRET

Yep, that just broke my heart into a thousand little pieces.

A video has been released from the MV reading thanks to Robin via Cantara - download it from here:

It's only a minute or so long but you get to hear a couple of lines of poetry. Cantara said that after I heard Stephen's midwestern twang I might not love him anymore - not possible unless he like, reversed over my dog or something. He sounds similar to Jake which makes sense I guess.

Always visit here: http://www.stephengyllenhaal.com/ for all the latest Poppa info.

Ilove his twang!- and everything else about him.

cina said...

Oh wow, he did NOT sound the way I thought he would! LOL
I can hear Jake in him though, no doubt about that. That was really fun to see, thanks!

Or maybe you can hear Stephen in Jake....yep, no doubt about it!

Poppa G just keeps getting better and better - nice to know that Jake will probably keep getting better with age too.

Yes, that's probably more accurate, but since I've never heard Stephen before but obviously have heard Jake, that felt more natural to say. :-)

JoyceDavenport said...

Hey Cina Just noticed with your new avatar we look like sisters ;)

Anna said...

He has beautiful eyes...

cina said...

@Joyce - LOL We do! Or perhaps I'm the cartoon version of you...?? ;-)

phoebe said...

Great to hear his voice (loved it)! And to be able to listen to him read his poetry (since he's most likely never coming here to do that). How can you not love this guy?!

Oh, and the secret? Truly heartbreaking.

The Bearded Lady said...

His voice sounds much younger than his years...he sounds like a 20-30 yr old.
Twang? I suppose?
It's interesting to hear him read it, as he intended to sound, the rhythm and emphasis.
Much better than my readings!, with my finger on the screen...following the words.

The secret? very bittersweet.
If everyone had ideal parents the world would not be as screwed up as it is, would it?

So true, TBL!

The secret is devastating!It gave me the chills..so sad and beautifuly made!

Poppa's voice is exactly like Jake's!I wasn't looking at first on the screen and when it started I was sure that it was Jake who was speaking!ha..very nice!

JoyceDavenport said...

Intweresting report on Jake's recent night out in NY here

pgcatz said...

Jake will be his Dad in years to come. My God they look alike and talk almost the same. You know how we always turn into our parents as we get older. It is easy to see where Jake gets his sex appeal.

only1annabel said...

Aww Poppa G! I was expecting his voice to be deeper but he has a nice sounding voice and it definately sounds similar to Jake's!

smurfette said...

joyce, just read that people report. are they serious? how reliable is people with these things, anyway? it sounds more like the typical us weekly/star blurb (which i never trust)

JoyceDavenport said...

I dunno smurfette- but I just love the image of Jake limbo dancing while a bit drunk!

Hey Muffin you got an avatar- congrats- like your new ones too smurfette and Mrs D. Hmm- maybe I should think about updating- I am fond of Joyce- maybe if I had seen Cina's first...

smurfette said...

haha, thanks joyce-- i'm testing out this avatar cuz it seems to go with the hard-chicks-in-comic style a bit. not smurf-like at all, but i'm sure i'll switch again soon. yours is quite nice, you should keep it in reserve in case you want to go back to it after switching.

forgot to comment on the stephen secret-- it's one of the best! i just noticed how maggie overall looks like mom, but has dad's exact doe-like eyes! jake looks like pops, but has his mamma's bigger/rounder eye shape... what a gorgeous family, inside and out!

vanzmotorbike said...

Is that a lisp I detect?

I dont think Stephen sounds like Jake at all.. and I sure as hell don't think Jake "will be his Dad in years to come". Bloody hell, they don't even look alike.

Katie of Sweden said...

He's ma maaaaaaaaan

Katie of Sweden said...

What a classy secret card, best I've seen so far!

smurfette said...

vanz-- have you ever seen highway, or bubble boy? i think our boy has some hidden lisp as well. but he's such a good actor, his voice changes a bit from movie to movie (i know everyone raves about heath's voice change in bbm, which is truly amazing, yes, but honestly, jake does it as well, maybe just not as obviously).

smurfette said...

btw, vanz, interesting avatar. the anime chick looks a little like charlize theron.

mrs_dalloway said...

Oh,thanks,Joyce.I must admit I was feeling rather guilty with that hot sexy body of a Bond Girl!This one,although is a cartoon,matches better with the reality ;)
Joyce,if you change you image,it will be hard getting used to it.I have this image in my mind and it fits PERFECT with the "I have emotional problems too"!

vanzmotorbike said...

Hi Smurfette and everyone. Yeah, I saw Highway and Bubble Boy. I like them both. I suppose Jake's voice does change from movie to movie, but I have never noticed a hidden lisp with Jake.

As for Heath in BBM, I couldn't understand a bloody word he said; he mumbled his way through the whole film so much so I had to see it twice. (And of course there was Jake to be had all over again, so I'm not complaining). I just got BBM on DVD and keep rewinding all of Heath's 'bits' just to catch the dialogue. It was then I realised I think I have trouble understanding American accents, or maybe it's just Heath.

I'll take the Charlize Theron comment as a compliment. Avatars are such difficult things to pick. I'd be looking around for a week for a cartoon one I'd like so I just used this one. It's some kind of nature girl or something...

Cheers.

vanz What is on your pretty face? Looks like green stuff/flowers. It sure takes away from your looks.

Wah!He doesn't sound anything like i expected.When i listen to Jake and now his dad i can hear how much of a Californian boy Jake really is.

Who took the vid?It's very clear if it's a camera phone?

That secret gives me chills. How horrible and yet how beautiful. Amazingly brave...I think that's the best one ever.

Tany said...

The secret was just heartbreaking. Sad thing is i can relate.
