He's back! I don't like when he goes to the Blackpool. It is not safe out there without us looking after him. Thank God he is OK! I was so worried about him! I like that he shaved too! He is so sexy!

^^^^^I don't know why that put me on anon! Anyway it's me.

I got excited that he might make his way down the British Isles and end up near me in Southend or Walton-on-the-Naze but alas he sold out and went back across the pond! Damn it Gyllenhaal!!
As for the open bike shirt/top/thing I like it! Nice to see him stubble free for once but it would be nice if there was a little to play with!

veeveevee said...

I'm guessing he read some of the comments about looking like he put on a few pounds during his vacation and has decided to work them off. Anything that gets him to unzip his clothing works for me!!

mpom said...

Shirt...
Half way back.
Sunglasses...
Spandex pants...
Both back
Is beard next? My guess is ...
Probably.

I am so spoiled by
Half naked clean shaven Jake pics.

But I am glad he's back in any case.

Looking forward to cooler weather. Maybe there will be socks involved.

Prophecy Girl said...

My God! All those months we spent complaining about the lack of skin and now the man can't keep his shirt on. God bless you, Jake.

Kendra said...

Jake seems to want recovering his shape, spandex shorts are back!

nice anonymous said...

When he's got his shirt open like this, I don't mind at all serving as his bike seat.

To me, this is just enough chest hair. Just like a little bit of pencil shading added to a beautiful drawing.

Anonymous said...

Maybe its just the way his shirt is blowing, but then I look at that spandexed thigh and OMG he's beefed up!!! I mean, those thighs look powerful. I like a little heft to my Jake. (sigh.) This man is so unbelievably beautiful he makes my heart ache.

smurfette said...

ohh, i didn't realize how much i missed jake's baby face! i'm loving little-clothed, clean-shaven jake. the beard was okay for a while, but i hope this look stays...

also, he looks sooo good and perfectly toned-- i think with the beach pics it was definitely a matter of angles and the camera adding weight.

amerita said...

Smurfette I agree that it must sometimes be the camera angle adding extra pounds ... Otherwise JG should be scientifically studied for being the human being who can gain/loose weight in the shortest amount of time ... ever!

muffin said...

Can we send him some Bic razors just so as the beard doesn't come too quickly....I'm liking me some smooth skin on Jake....

Simon Agent 002 said...

Good to see he's ok, and getting his riding in.
Maggie was on TV today looking great ,talking about Sherrybaby...and no she didn't disclose any potential names.
Movie clip looked interesting :)

I'm guessing he read some of the comments about looking like he put on a few pounds during his vacation and has decided to work them off.

Wouldn't it be thrilling & a little frightening if he had read the comments? But honestly, though I try, I can't imagine Jake spending much time on the Internet reading about himself. I think he'd be too weirded out by that, and so he'd avoid it. It would be uncharacteristically narcissistic of him, too. And he's so very active, even during his so-called downtime -- he's off bicycling or doing weight training, getting a fake tattoo, or buying more gray t-shirts & sneakers, or conferring with his agent, his lawyers, his accountants, or texting on his BlackBerry while carrying a smoothie & getting out his car keys, or dining out in fine restaurants with various companions. He's just not the type to be Net surfing for hours or googling "Gyllenhaal." (If he was, his butt would be much bigger.)

I think he looked a little bulkier in the beach photos because of where the towel was tied around his waist. He looks quite fit in this new bike picture.

nice anonymous said...

It's those horizontal stripes in the towel.

(Jake, remember: Vertical stripes always, darling.)

kokodee said...

Would you like me to scratch that itch for you, jakey poo?
I scratch nice...

PICKLE said...

I think I am one of the very few who miss the beard :( Sniff.

smurfette said...

He's just not the type to be Net surfing for hours or googling "Gyllenhaal."

he leaves that work for the agents... such as yours truly ;)

cina said...

LOLOL! @ nice anon!

britpopbaby said...

I kinda liked the beard, pickle! A bit o' scruff anyway.

Amerika Bound said...

Beefy, lean, beard or clean,
I lust it all.

well that's the cool thing about facial hair, pickle and Brits....it'll grow back!

In the meantime....vive la difference!

The Bearded Lady said...

He looks very handsome without the beard.
Miss Bearded Lady is very happy!
I believe only one person in a couple should have one!

Save that look for wilderness men...lumberjacks and moi ;)

I agree that the towel and the camera angle gave the impression he gained some weight, but I also think that he lost a lot of weight pretty quickly and he probably did gain a bit while at MV.I've been studying the beach pics verrrry carefully and I like it a LOT!

britpopbaby said...

I cannot access my google account and it's driving me fuckin nuts!!

gin said...

Mmmkay. So, I love the shaven look on Jake and I do appreciate him in Spandex, of course. But I need to say that seeing him cycling AGAIN...sigh...Jacob, I do support your bicycling endeavors but it is getting a bit redundant. I thought we were taking a break. Get thee hence back to the beach, peel outta that Spandex and show me some more wet skin!

Prophecy Girl said...

Brits, I can't imagine! It's how I survive the day...

britpopbaby said...

You can get in yours???

Marie said...

What a great picture. He has the most perfect chest ever. Love the hair on it. Yu-um.

smurfette said...

brit, mine is just fine as well...

~DKBB~ said...

Yum! Just...yum!!!!

perfectscore_goldstar said...

I think he looks adorable !

Prophecy Girl said...

You can get in yours???

A much-delayed "yes," which you won't get 'cause I'm sure your in bed. This is what happens when I spend my whole day wrapped up reading stories...

dani said...

Even though the chanes are one in ten gazillion that I will ever meet him, I am so glad Jake is back in LA just down the freeway from me. I just like to know he is nearby.

He looks wonderful! I like the scruffy look, but this sweet clean shavened face is very pretty to look at. I won't mind him keeping it for awhile.

I like what amerika bound said:

phoebe said...

Oh sweet Lord... the muscles, the bare chest, the clean-shaven face...*THUD*

thesweetestone said...

Oh, good, he took my advice and started working out:-)
Mmm, he looks gorgeous, yum.
Only, i have developed a phobia from bikes, is anyone here perhaps from Amsterdam? Cause Ive been there this summer..... and WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH THE PEOPLE! I love the city and all, but the bicycle drivers are READY TO KILL!

JoyceDavenport said...

Hmm- I have a bad feeling about this. Jake please please please don't spend the rest of the year in spandex and beard- even if you do I will love you still- but your face is so beautiful- a beard is like scribbling on the Mona Lisa.

kaydee said...

what joyce said: no beard and no spandex, please, or I think it is another thing I'm going to have to be on denial about. how about some nice jeans and blazer ? - I sooo like a good boy look... *sigh*

JoyceDavenport said...

I think the days of Jake's 'good boy' -I actually think of it more as 'mischievious schoolboy' look are gone- he's too mature and too major a star for that. He doesn't need to pose for magazines or do anything else to get noticed. The game now is to manage the amount of attention he gets.Hence the 'I'm just a regular 25 year old guy hanging with my friends' look. Our best hope for a change of diet from that is the upcomming promo for Zodiac and some nice red carpet shots.

kaydee said...

I hear you. JUST NO MORE BIKING SHOTS, pleasepleaseplease. I'M SICK OF IT. I have a fervent and unexplicable hatred for spandex. Even if it is his nice body covered in it. Red carpet shots are always good, though.

Is it just me or do Jake's legs look extra silky smooth?

dani said...

Joyce, you are right on the money with your view of Jake's game plan. In the past he had to do whatever - the magazine posing and what not - to get noticed. It certainly worked since he has managed to acquire fans from all over the world. Jake seems to have always known what he wants as far as his career goes and how to get it. It's all well thought out. And it works for him and definitely for us.
That's one of the things I love about him. He is not a cookie cutter Hollywood star!

Cyclists are known to shave their legs (Why? How should I know why?), I hope Jake isn't taking things that far.

The Bearded Lady said...

^ so the spandex will slide on easier

kaydee said...

^ so the spandex will slide OFF easier - now that's a thought to behold

Anonymous said...

TBL, thanks for that. I was beginning to wonder if it is some kind of perverted ritual cyclists indulge in. ("Lance, you shave my legs and I'll shave yours.")

~DKBB~ said...

Shaved legs also cut down on wind resistance. Competitive swimmers shave, um, everything. At least cyclists leave the body hair alone - I do love a man with a furry chest...just not that fond of furry butts.... ;)
