JAKE BRANCHES OUT, TRIES KHAKIS!

EXHIBIT A:


EXHIBIT B:
So excited by his new look, Jake sported both gangsta (Exhibit A) and non-gangsta (Exhibit B) style one-leg pant-roll-up action, causing an uproar in the fashion world. The news spread quickly across New York, and by Wednesday morning, designers in Paris were frantically making last minute adjustments to their fall lines. Mr. Gyllenhaal was also seen donning some sort of sweater-thingy, which he stored casually on his shoulder, hereby definitively banishing the "tied-around-your-waist" look. Gyllenhaal was unavailable for comment, but we here at Jake Watch have no doubt that this was a strategic fashion move on his part, the full ramifications of which have yet to be seen.

Also, there was something about him being in a movie? Or something?

I thought I liked khakis, but now I'm not too sure. He really works the plain vneck tee, but the whole thing goes better with faded jeans.

Shoes: same green ones he's been wearing the past month.

Sweatshirt: casually slung over the shoulder for that relaxed look.

Glasses: Dark aviator feel.

All in all, it works, but Jake can and usually does better.

Look at that male model pose he's striking in the top picture. Work it, Jakey!

Probably his jeans are all in the laundry. Maggie couldn't bear it anymore & said something at last: "Jake, I've got news for you. Summer's over, and if I see you in those green cargo shorts ONE MORE TIME I'll go into labor prematurely."

Aren't those white t-shirts available from Hanes from Rite Aid or CVS in three-packs or something? I know he probably wears a far more costly version, bought from some little boutique where they give you a fancy bag & wrap it in scented tissue paper. But it amuses me to think of him piling up those t-shirts. I'll bet he's got a drawer crammed to bursting with them.

"What do I wear today? Hmmmm, another white t-shirt. Sounds good."

Jean Paul assures me, mine is in the post! Well you know my motto! "Wish you looked this good BITCH"

I so hope Jake and Reese do a film together I love Reese.

alexa said...

I think the khakis work just fine on him. He looks delicious here. And I really, really want to be that book under that arm. Well, yeah, now I feel a little weird. When do you call it an obession?

A meeting with Sam Mendes? I wonder if it was business related. Another new movie maybe?

cina said...

Deliciously looking as always. Jake just can't go wrong in my eyes. *sigh*

ahhh, it would amuse me if he kept them longer than a week... the key to rockin a crisp white T is to wear it only until it needs to be washed then throw it out. the thing with washing them, they lose their cool cred and get bent outta shape..

honest to who i have it on good authority- that's what all the gangsta's do. :P

I like the one pic at ihj series before this series of pics where he has his left leg rolled up to just below his knee, it shows off his cyclist calves... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Sam Mendes + Jake = random celebrity paparazzi bingo square?

Brits?

I think he looks just gorgeous all the time in anything now that he's shaved, and loving the casually slung sweater look.Oh to be that sweater.*sigh*

Anonymous said...

I adore him. I adore the look and if I had to BE anything I'd like to be his Blackberry or whatever he's holding in his hands....(thud.) I wept for joy at the news he's close to inking a movie deal!
Missed Tsotsi when it came out, but will notify Netflix immediately. Hope he and Sam are talking projects. Mendes is producing a couple, including Sweeney Tood, directed by Tim Burton and so far..starring Johnny Depp. Johhny Depp devouring Jake?

Anonymous said...

OMG, I am sooo excited about the movie news!!! Him and Reese in a intriguing thriller...awesome! Plus, I loved Tsosti, rent it if you haven't seen it.

And he looks great with Sam!!!

jacknastygirl said...

he and Sam Mendes look fantastic together

Anonymous said...

Hasn't Sam Mendes piled on weight?! I didn't realise it was him til the People Pic said it was and Jake had had lunch with him. Sam had double helpings by the look of it!

Jakes face is as smooth as a baby's bum.Not even a whisker.I miss the face fuzz,but he still looks cute.

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Haha! Oh man that made me lol. I am loving the khakis. And the white T-shirt. I don't care how many times he wears it, I still love it. That would make a good conversation starter, Person From Hong Kong Who Gets to Meet Jake. Ask him how many white shirts he has and how he keeps them so clean!

Anonymous said...

BTW: Lance is in Manhattan preparing for the NYC marathon which happens in 6 weeks or so. Wonder if Jake is entertaining a notion of running in the Marathon?

Anna said...

"Also, there was something about him being in a movie? Or something?"

LOL, BPB! You've got your priorities straight, that's for sure. :D

abbey said...

Did anybody else notice that it looks like he doesn't have any hair on his leg in this pic?

smurfette said...

omg, that’s sam mendes? i hardly recognize him!

alright, movie news!! it makes my currently bad day so much better already. i wonder if the final ebay bid would’ve been spiked another thousand bucks had the news broke a day earlier—i mean, la, washington, morocco, south africa as options!? and jake and reese in a movie, i love it already! film sounds interesting—except eerily like syriana (multilayered cia middle east story?). i liked syriana, but i’m sure this’ll excellent in its own way, with tsotsi director helming. I hope jake and reese have a decent amt of scenes together, what with her playing the wife at home part, i think.

oh yeah, did y’all hear about maggie and peter’s new place in brooklyn? i’m happy for them, tho it’s bittersweet cuz (selfishly) we’ll prolly get fewer pap pics? are heath and michelle still there? Heard they moved to la…

I LOVE how lean he's looking lately, in whatever he happens to be wearing!

i just drooled all over my keyboard. SO-FUCKING-HOT.

JUST WHEN I THOUGHT THAT NOTHING LOOKS BETTER ON HIM THAT JEANS AND A GRANDPA SWEATER... oh my god, so gorgeous, i'm speechless...

now i'm going to stare at those pictures some more

kaydee said...

well, yeah, i think that it IS the moment to call it an obsession, but we are all there, you're not alone

Katie said...

Eagle eyes over at IHJ have identified the book as

Infinite Jest: A novel
by David Foster Wallace

Looks pretty interesting and a little.... odd

Anonymous said...

Reese is not playing his wife,just happens to be the leading lady in the film.I don't know who will play her husband yet?

Anonymous said...

Interesting choice of book Jake.



Infinite Jest (1996) is a critically acclaimed novel written by David Foster Wallace. This extremely large and complex work takes place in a hypothetical Boston, Massachusetts of the near future. The novel touches on topics as diverse as tennis; substance addiction and recovery programs; child abuse; advertising and popular entertainment; film theory; and Quebecois separatism.

nice anonymous said...

My friends in grad school -- a lot of whom were David Foster Wallace groupies -- used to call that "Infinite Book," because the page count was so vast.

He writes really good nonfiction -- I recommend "A Supposedly Fun Thing That I'll Never Do Again."

Maybe Reese's husband dies under torture, and Jake's character then becomes responsible for her & she becomes his romantic interest?

smurfette said...

omg, jake has the best taste in books. david foster wallace is a genius!

Agnes said...

hereby definitively banishing the "tied-around-your-waist" look Hell yeah!!!

And it's about time you do some movies Jake, we miss you on the big screen ;)

mrs_dalloway said...

Back from the cloudy peaks to see the best news ever: Jake in a new movie!!I was beginning to forget how was he like in movies,how he acted..Well,I guess it's for the best.He waits until he gets a good script..Let it be BIG,please,please..

Anonymous said...

i really wish he'd grow back a bit of facial hair...like the amount in proof. luv those white v neck t-shirts he wears, shows off his nicely defined muscles! and the fact that he reads and is intelligent just makes him even hotter!

SquallCloud said...

I can't believe he's wearing the same shoes. He is such a sneaker fiend. What does this mean for my understandings of The Sex? I'm so lost now.

Sidebar: I would like to climb into my computer and hump that man's leg. He looks perfect. Just fucking absolutely perfect.

britpopbaby said...

I kinda miss the face fuzz too but I'm totally with squall on the humping - maybe we could take a leg each?

cina said...

^^ Now that'd be a sight for sore eyes!! LOLOL

I'll take the third leg then. HA! ;-D

kaydee said...

i could totally do with an arm - i have a thing for arms. strong tanned and long, hmmm.

"topics as diverse as tennis; substance addiction and recovery programs; child abuse; advertising and popular entertainment; film theory; and Quebecois separatism."

Oh my!.. but nothing on General Smedley Butler?

I've only been reading recipes...and the "The Joy Of Crochet"....(hangs head down in shame)

gummybug said...

Yes, I believe the movie is a remake of The Grudge.

^^^ HA!!! Love it! That movie scared the shit out of me.

pgcatz said...

SIGH..He looks so damn good.

muffin said...

More new pics at IHJ, and Random Celeb can now be crossed off the Papa Bingo Card....

Anonymous said...

smurfette .. Heath and Michelle have a place in LA but that's just for when they need to be there for business. Their home is still in Brooklyn. Cool, that Mags and Pete have a place there. Might encourage more paps to finally get some pics of Heath and Jake together if they venture to Brooklyn for a change, following him! :-)

Anonymous said...

Actually, 11:24 PM, as much as I love seeing pics of Jake and the Gyllenfam, I really hope the paps do not follow Jake or Maggie/Peter/family to Brooklyn. Especially since they are moving to get away from the paps.

That being said, I think the new pics of them all with JLC are great. :)

Katie said...

I think the whole Gyllenhaal family (with the important exception of Peter) out for a walk through the streets of NY is bound to attract attention - I'm sure they must be aware of that. There must be ways to avoid the paps (as we know by Jake's frequent disappearances) but I'm sure this isn't one of them.

Anonymous said...

Well if both legs and an arm have gone i'll take the penis.Well,nobody else seemed to want it?

justjake said...

Look!!!More pictures have just gone up on iheartjake.He looks very nice and very sexy in these.
I love his grey top.

justjake said...

I also wonder it happening across the road.They are all looking and look mighty pissed off with whatever it is?

Den Of Thieves said...

New khakis and new movie?! And I'm equally excited!
Does anyone know when the trailer for Zodiac will be released because I'm getting kind of desperate here.
Oh! And David Foster Wallace wrote "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men" which is being made into movie written and directed by John Krasinski from "The Office." I just thought Prophecy Girl would appreciate this. (If she didn't know already.) Anyway, I think Jake and John should be best friends and hang out so I can look at them simultaneously. But my heart belongs first and foremost to Jake, of course.

Anonymous said...

Katie, yes the whole Gyllenfam out in NYC will bring out paps. I am talking about after the baby is born. Maggie has mentioned in interviews that the paps have been bothersome. So, if they are moving to Brooklyn for after the birth, I hope they have some more privacy. Sure they expect and know about the paps, but when they are around 24/7 I am sure it can get annoying. It sounded like she didn't want to subject the baby to that all the time.

Funny you should say that as they are all out for a walk in New York in newest pictures.

amerita said...

eah, with Jam ie Lee Curtis too! I really like her. Lovely pics btw, Maggie looks tired, hang on girl, baby will be here soon!

He looked pissed and he looked mean in this -

And look, there's a bicycle in the background. Two more to cross off in the bingo.

That Jake can look mean is sexy, in that pic he wears his hair perfectly combed. I like Maggie's red fular and sandals combination.

marcus said...

Can't say i'm mad about the boot flares in the pics with Sam,although i like the colour combo against his tan.

NEW LOOK - HOT!
NEW MOVIE - SWEET!

My gets better everyday with just that needed dose of The Gyllenhaal.

THANK YOU JAKE!! That new movie sounds GREAT!! I knew he wouldn't do a piece of fluff - I smelled a political thriller!

Jake is looking FIERCE - Oh my god - the shave has totally let his jawline just shine and I'm in LOOOOOVE with it. Hot dam.

EEK!! Den of Thieves you made me shriek like the fangirl I am! I didn't know that about John (thanks!) and I certainly agree with your John/Jake theories. They so need to be BBF's. Then it can be like that blissful moment in Jarhead all the time. I might pass out from happiness.

SquallCloud said...

Thanks for the pic Kendra. Jamie looks hot. Damn that woman has aged well.

I dont care what he wears...he wears it all so well!!!!!
