A TRAVESTY IN JAKE TIMES II

Wow, I think that's got to be a record for the quickest backtrack on a 'PS' ever. Apparently the world of Jake is filled with injustices!

Someone (fool), somewhere, asked some people (also fools) who they thought (wrongly) were the top ten natural beauties of the world. The list is as follows:

1. Sophia Loren
2. George Clooney
3. Charlotte Church
4. Catherine Zeta Jones
5. Johnny Depp
6. Kate Winslet
7. Gwyneth Paltrow
8. Jack Black
9. Cameron Diaz
10. Gail Porter

I'm just...I'm...too...angry...

Speaking as an Italian,
I am glad to see Sophia Loren at the top of this list.
But to over look "J.G." for the remaining 9 seems inexcusable!

smurfette said...

that was the most random list of people-- i agree with some, but the whole thing is so totally subjective.

on a happier note, check out this bit of news!

http://people.aol.com/people/article/0,26334,1224171,00.html

Courteney Cox and David Arquette, having dinner with pals Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher at Italian restaurant Il Sole in West Hollywood. The couples sipped wine and bellinis with their meals. On another night at the culinary hot spot, Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams feasted on lobster ravioli and chicken marsala with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Wait...Jack Black?? In what universe??

nice anonymous said...

Yeah, I agree. Let's swap out "Jack Black" for someone much better-looking.

britpopbaby said...

Charlotte Church was one of my main issues.

Amerika Bound said...

I think those somebodies must have been born nobodies.

hrmph.

Prophecy Girl said...

No words. Was this a survey of blind people?

msdonniedarko said...

wow i cant believe that jake isnt even on there much less number one!!! i do love it that they put jack black on there tho i love him and i always thought he was a cutie!

The Bearded Lady said...

Are they done promoting Jack Black yet?
If I see another ad for his movie...I'll lose it.
and this only goes to underscore the travesty that this list is.

wtbgirl said...

I have no idea who Gail Porter even is.

cina said...

JACK BLACK?!?!
Am I missing something here or what? *shakes head*
And like you wtbgirl, I have absolutely no idea who Gail Porter is.

Spotted J in Malibu on Sunday being videotaped by papz in driver seat of new silver Mercedes with bikes on back. One other dude got in car with lunch. Anyone seen the video or pictures?

Katie said...

CHARLOTTE CHURCH!!!! Are these people on hallucogenics (too angry to spell)? Travesty - outrage.

Offended Gyllenhaalic

Gail Porter is a British TV presenter. Very minor even in British fame terms!
She's not bad looking, but I think it's more a respect vote cos she used to have long blonde hair but it all fell out from stress about 2 years ago and she's now completely bald.
She refuses to wear a wig so that's probably why they put her on a list like this.

Kendra said...

George Clooney an Cameron Diaz are so overrated, and Charlotte Church is it a joke?

Muffin said...

Jack Black?

Jack Black??

Jack Black??!!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone has to be taking the piss with this list...

Bitka said...

Awww, he got lost! This just proves we were meant to be, as I have a tendency to get lost quite often. Of course, this means we can never leave the house, but that's ok with me.

And Jack Black? There's nothing at all beautiful about Jack Black.

msdonniedarko said...

oh guys i think your being a little hard on jack black! hes so cool and i love how he sings!! anyway im sure this will be the only list jack is on so im happy for him

britpopbaby said...

Does Jake have 2 Benzs? One silver and one black?

JACK BLACK?

Oy Vey.

Off topic, but there seems to be an issue with this site. For some reason, I can't see updates right away. This morning, the most recent update I could see was from Saturday, but a few hours later, I tried again and found stuff from Sunday and today. This isn't the first time this has happened.

Also, sometimes I get different results when I try jakegyllenhaalwatch.blogspot.com instead of www.jakewatch.com. (One doesn't seem to work better than the other. It's a hit or miss.)

I use Firefox as my browser. Could that be the problem?

I may need to actually get a screen name soon.

britpopbaby said...

Yikes, anon. I can't even begin to think why that might be???

Let me check my blogger community and see if anything has been going down.

Gail Porter - a few years back a magazine (FHM?) had a naked picture of her projected onto the Houses of Parliament. Now not a lot of people can say that.

SquallCloud said...

Boooo Hissss! Not only is Jake not on the list (HATE!) but there are no people of color on the list either. (HATE!) Although Cole Porter looks like he might be an octoroon. That list is rubbish. Dont' worry about it.

hedda parsons said...

Poor baby got lost! The other guy look a little like the guy Brit calls Richard O'Brien, Armstrongs trainer. You think he was on his way to McBongo's?? You would think he would know his was there by now!

Anonymous said...

Thanks, Britpop. :-)

--same Often-Posting-Anon.

At least Kate Winslet and Catherine Zeta-Jones made the list. They're both gorgeous women.

And Johnny is in a category all on his own.

Well done! More of those reports! You should join as a JW agent!

SquallCloud said...

Oh hell it's not Cole Porter. It's Gail Porter. See reading IS fundamental. Still those people are dumbasses. Jack Black?!

smurfette said...

@ anon who spotted the videotaping paps—how far away were they from jake? did he know they were around? i always wonder how they’re able to get these types of shots—did they stake him out and then follow his car until something interesting-ish happened? or did jake stop for directions at an area where paps happened to be? and i’m always surprised at how “in-your-face” they seem to be. i remember feeling bad after watching the video of jake and chris playing b-ball because it seemed like they were completely unaware of being videotaped until the guy approached them after the game, and then jake seemed a little pissed…

Gargoyle said...

According to PerezHilton.com, (so this info may be BS), Jake was at a Death Cab for Cutie concert last night.

I've not heard any of their music. Is it any good?

cina said...

@ anon 10:09

I second that totally!! :-)

SquallCloud said...

gargoyle,

Yes the music is good. Not earth shattering. I wish I knew how he stood on Zero 7 and The Drudge, my current fave bands.

Nothing Really Matters said...

I love Catherine Zeta Jones!

britpopbaby said...

Oh hell it's not Cole Porter. It's Gail Porter.

That just made me laugh for about 10 minutes.

Okay people! I have a way to remedy this. We'll make our own top ten and I'll feed it into digitalspy as a media report and volia! Problem fixed.

Now....

1. Jake Gyllenhaal

erm...

In strangely coincidental news, Perez (who posted about the Jake concert sighting) ALSO has a big picture of Charlotte Church up today (not usually someone you see on his blog).

He's commenting on an apparent weight gain - I don't know how I feel about that - Perez himself has got some junk in the trunk - plus I would rather a bit a chub over the anorexic zombie chicks floating around Hollywood these days.

cina said...

Brits - I'm gonna throw in Johnny Depp as number two.

Ooh, there are some new topless photos of Jake at IHJ!!! Yummy!!!

amerita said...

^^ Yummy indeed! The T-shirt is nice but no need to put it on!

Anonymous said...

Yay for topless Jake!! And I was right, it was the Richard O'Brien dude with him. I think he is Armstrong's trainer.

^^Smurfette,
When you put a long http, find a location along it and hit the enter key.
That will cut it at that location, and put the remainder on the next line.
Preventing it being cut off by the blogger box.

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Who made this list? Were they being sarcastic? I mean...some of them, I'm okay with, (Johnny Depp) maybe not in the order they've got going, but alright. The order, I can let slide. But the lack of Jake is just...astounding.

moonbeams said...

There are at least six people on that list who shouldn't BE on any list. At least certainly not THAT kind of list!!!! I agree. Johnny Depp for #2 on JW list. Can I ask pretty please for George Clooney. My mother likes him. (ahem.)

perfectscore_goldstar said...

Jack Black ???

OMG !

JACK BLACK ???

**grabs barf bag**

perfectscore_goldstar said...

Okay this bears repeating ...

FRICKIN' JACK BLACK ???

Maybe they were thinking about JAKE when he played JACK (Twist) with that sexy BLACK hat on in BBM and they were just afraid to mis-spell his name or something ?

Please, tell me there's some explanation ... please please please.

JACK BLACK ?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I'm not sure that the paparazzi description was right. He didn't seem lost to me. It seemed like he was waiting for his friend to get into the car and the cop car happened to be there and possibly asked what he was doing and he told them he waiting for his friend. It would still make sense for him to be driving up and down the same street numerous times because if there is no real parking then he'd have to do that while he waited for his friend.

reitina said...

father, please forgive those who made the list for they don't know what they're doing..

we jakewatchers know better. and that's all that matters.
