MOROCCAN HEAT SHRINKS JAKE

Seriously, I thought he was taller than that.

More pics at IHJ.com including Jake holding a really small bowl, so maybe I got it the wrong way round, maybe he expanded.

Dammit! I just thought of a better caption for this: "The aging process makes a suprise attack on Poppa Gyllenhaal'.

he does look shorter than usual! but i guess there are a lot of guys over 6ft.

so yay! i'm loving the short hair. i'm probably in the minority, but i like it when he looks fresh and young and sporty with the short hair...

lmao about poppa g's sudden aging!

Maybe the other person had lifts in their shoes...or was standing on tippy toes? The other larger man is an aging bouncer who works part time at the ice cream place.The other man wants to know...what flavor, Jake???

ROFL! Yeah, I didn't even notice that when I first looked at this series. There's another incentive for me to move to LA: abundance of tall men! Heck, I was shocked that Conan didn't make Jake look short, but this is pretty weird.

Wait, you know what? It looks like that front guy might be a bit closer to the camera than Jake. That might have added to the effect.

Oh, and for me, the hair is all good. Plus it looks like he's wearing boots. They totally look out of place with the rest of the outfit, and that makes me squeeeeee....

Tall or short I just like what I'm seeing!!

ncwoman said...

He looks utterly divine in those pics. Love his hair, love his shirt, love his pants, love his boots, love his necklace, love his neck....

Aw hell, y'all get the idea.

So change it Brit! We won't mind. I mean, it's your post, after all....

I just don't understand the boots. He wears tennis shoes when he's dressed in those kinds of pants and t-shirt! Is this a sign?

"tall of short I just like what I'm seeing"

made me think of

jake/jack "fast or slow, I just like the direction you're going"

sigh...thanks!!

Take a look at the entire set of the pics with this guy... dude seems to be up in Jake's face about something. At the end the guy in the yellow jacket seems to be pulling him away...

penny26 said...

I agree, he does seem to look as shorter than usual.
Do you reckon he really is 6ft or not or is everyone in LA massively tall?
Hair looks good but he should grow a bit of stubble again.

Totally OT, but BP and PG - YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

I already got my Variety Ad t-shirt - very awesome, and my "I'm stalking Jake" buttons that are (dare I say it?) - cute as a button! I got the one-inch size, and they are darling!

Now I'm in a dilemma as to what other shirts to order and not wear. (It's too nice, I don't want to wreck it!)

Thanks you guys!

I have heard that Jake is 5 feet 9. He is about the same height as Maggie it seems.

Jake is not 5'9"! Heath is 6'2" and Jake was just a teensy bit shorter when they were pictured together. And people who have see Jake live in person can vouch for the 6'.I think that other man had secret lifts in his shoes that no one could see.(LOL!) And really the camera angle is the point, bcz we can't really see where the guy is standing to make him appear taller than he really is.

last year I read some comment (somewhere) from a guy that plays bball in LA at the same location as Jake & friends. He said Jake was the tallest guy on the court, estimated his height as 6" 1/2". Also said that Jake was an intense competitor, ruthless on defense. Could be total bs, but it sounded authentic.

well, obviously I meant 6' 1/2" , NOT 6"!

Tuesday, September 12, 2006: ER, JAKE WATCH, WE HAVE A PROBLEM...

Jake and Austin walking down the street and our beloved looking a little dwarfed by Austin.

I will never forgive Austin for that!! How dare he be taller than EVERYONE!

personally i dont like the haircut, its really really bad esp the pic over at IHJ of him close up, you can see scissor marks and everything. Thats the hairdresser coming out in my but. Hes lookin pretty damn fine otherwise!

cina said...

^^ I thought there was something weird-looking with his hair, but couldn't put my finger on what it was.You being a professional hairdresser just confirmed it for me. Thanks Sam! Of course I don't have the eyes for such details as you do. I wonder who the hell did his hair?! He should hire you Sam!! :)

Heath Ledger is 6 feet 1 and Jake is more then a teensy bit shorter then him, but if it makes everyone feel better we can say Jake is 6 feet 2. In fact, maybe even 6 feet 3, he's super tall. Possibly the tallest man I've ever seen.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure he's about 6 feet. Remember that DC lasher whos step-daughter posed with him last year? she's almost 6 feet herself and jake looks taller in the pic.

Lol at the Jake and Austin pics, Austin looked like he was 6'5''!

Anonymous said...

Do you know what I don't care how tall he is, he is still the finest looking man I have ever seen.

Anonymous said...

We should all calm down. I'm a tall girl myself and I do wish Jake was just a little bit taller cause if we stood next to each other we would look as if we are of the same height, although he is still taller than me.But.. I don't care. He is FINE!!*slaps herself and remembers to calm down*

britpopbaby said...

I thought Jake was 6ft. He said it himself in an interview.

So glad it looks good veeveevee! You'll have to take a pic and show us!

only1annabel said...

agneth...I realised once I'd posted how it sounded like that Brokeback quote, it wasn't my intention but it's clearly on my mind at all times!!

As for Jake's height, I thought it was universally acknowledged that he was around the 6ft mark? Ah hell not that I care!

Anonymous said...

But Jake IS 6 ft. It's just that 6 ft is not really that much. Guys who look really tall are usually 6'2", 6'3" and so on.

call me cherita said...

^^^I agree, anon. I think his GQ interviewer put it quite succinctly when he said, "...unlike most film actors, you're not short with an absurdly oversize head..." That's why we're all gaga over how tall he is. Because in most pictures with fellow cast, he's a freakin' giant. :) Anyway, 6' is tall enough for me!

heddaparsons said...

Hmmm. It does look like he is slouching a bit,maybe that's it!

I received my I see Dead Rabbits T-shirt and my JW mouse pad of Jake being chased by a lion from the JW store and I love them! I will be making another purchase soon.

cina said...

Okay, that's it! I'm ordering my "I see dead rabbits"-tee!

*runs off to order*

I once saw Bill Clinton in person and he is REALLY tall! He must be about 6'4". anyhow, I think Jake is perfect...and as for the shrinking, if the Moroccan heat did shrink Jake, I hope it didn't shrink him entirely! (BTW: I think that guy is Ralph Lauren's older bro and he's criticizing Jake for all the Armani during Zodiac promos!)

People are already getting they're stuff?! That's awesome!! Spreadshirt is so good; totally on top of things.

i think u nailed it, anon. most guys i know who seem really tall are 6'3+, and 6' guys never seem tall to me until i'm up close, cuz a lot of guys are actually around 6'. does that make sense? like, i never realized justin timberlake is supposedly 6'1", and heath doesn't look all that tall to me either until he's standing next to shorter people.

and as for jake being the same height as maggie, that's silly. at 5'9", a 3 inch heel, which is nothing, would bring maggie to 6'. i know people who've met maggie and said she's really very tall in person.

Anonymous said...

Justin Timberlake doesn't seem that tall. I remember pics of him with Cameron and they seemed like either he's the same height or a tiny bit shorter. (5'9") Heath on the other hand, looks really tall to me. He's got a lean,lanky build, arms, etc. Christian Bale seems talelr than he is. Orlando Bloom is supposed to be 5'11" and he seems shorter too. Maybe it's bcz he played an elf in LOTR! LOL! Jake may not seem 6', bcz of his build. He is not a lean built man. He looks like he could bulk up to look stocky really quickly. In Jarhead, for instance. That bulk affects how we perceive his height.

call me cherita said...

^^^You have a point about his build, but I wouldn't say he's not lean. I think what you're trying to convey is that he's by no means skinny (or scrawny, to use Joe Aguirre's word). But to me Jake's body is the definition of lean perfection: I'd bet he's got as close to 0% body fat as any non-pro athlete you'll ever see.

I also suspect that his broad shoulders add to the shortening effect as compared to men built like Heath. I'm no expert on such things, but the muscles of Jake's shoulders and arms always remind me of a rower. Makes me wonder exactly which of his many activities it is that's built such exquisite definition there.

That lean-but-not-skinny look is exactly what makes him so appealing to me (it's sort of my type, if I have one). Sure, I think he's hot in Jarhead, but that has just as much to do with his presence as his bulk.
