AND SO THE GENTLE PROD OF PUBLICITY BEGINS

European-style! No hilarious TV chat shows or GQ front covers for us, oh no, modest interviews in left-wing newspaper Saturday supplements is the name of the game here.

Thanks to Katie in the forum for posting these up but in case for some reason, best kept to yourself, you don't visit the forum, here are the scans from The Guardian's interview with Jake. I warn you now, there is a disappointing lack of Gyllenbabble.

Also, no mention of Boo. And due to our extensive network of showbiz associates I can confirm there will be [shock] no Zodiac UK premiere and, "to date, we don't have a confirmed date of the premiere in Cannes." Merde.

The confirmed date of Zodiac in Cannes will know next week.
We have to wait on 30 th may to watch Zodiac in french screens. Merde

It says May, 17th....

I like the new appearance of the advertisement... and the Cannes mentioning..

The Guardian article is very insightful ....

Id just like to say AGAIN, how F*cken hot that picture is of him! I still cant get over it, i still havnt caught my breath!

I think its time Jake addressed the public about Boos whereabouts..

^^Anon 8.25, Thanks! good pics huh, i like the fact that he might be surfing JW *wonders about editing some posts in the forum*
On second thoughts hes more than likely looking at foreign newspapers like it said in the interview!

Great interview in The Guardian read it on Saturday.

Saw the pictures of Jske in Austin on another board, I hope Jake does not go on to any of these sites what with some of the stupid remarks people leave on them, always insinuating something. Not this one of course, JW and IHJ are the best.

I hope people don't think he tells a lie about he tells people he is a Canadian abroad,I think when Jake shot the film Rendition in Morocco,there must be not many people know who he is there,so it's possible for him to have chance to say he is a Canadian.Our Jakey is famous, but not eveyone in the world know who he is, when he went to shop or stall abroad, I think not eveyone knows who he is.

That wonderful picture of Jake, slightly biting his lip, has to be the most beautiful picture ever taken of him - in my own most humble opinion. It's simply breathtaking and had me literally gasping for air the first time I saw it. In fact, it's so beautiful I want to cry... *sniff*

Anonymous said...

It is a beautiful picture isn't it.

Sigh.

Also I liked that the interviewer thought TGG was underrated, I think it is very good film and very underrated.

KayDee said...

June 1st here, so you really have no reason to complain. I will be grey and wrinkled before I have a chance to see it.

Oh underrated indeed!! I love TGG, it's one of my favorite Jake movies, and Holden is my second favorite character after Jack Twist. :)

Oh great, now it will be all over the blogs where Jake and Chris are staying in TX. At least last time we just got mostly blurry pics of them, Lance and Matt at the music fest. Geez.

^^^You're right, that was OT. Next time if it involves gossip, could you please post it to the forum, instead? I ask this as a reader of the blog. Thanks!

heddaparsons said...

As I said on the forum this interview was the best IMO so far. Such intelligent questions and answers and I could actually understand everything he is saying!

Thanks for the scans.

That seems to be the distiguishing feature as between European journalists and Americans...intelligence. I say this as an American who is weary of the "who are you wearing, who are you f***ing..." line of questioning. It also seems as if European journos actually do research and familiarize themselves with their subject before writing their interview...a nice technique. Pictures are great. He is just beautiful. He just is.

pink mist said...

It's so refreshing reading his more elaborate interviews. There are always things that stick to my mind afterwards, in contrast with most other actors' interviews that are free of any original thought and forgotten as soon as read.

He is actually a very interesting person - looks aside.

But then, he has to look at us like this while we are supposed to concentrate on reading???

I hope Jake was able to tape some good stuff for airing on telly as part of the Z promos! I think Cannes is the place to be..for all sorts of reasons.Finding a place to stay at this date will be almost impossible. Best bet would be to stay outside the area and train in. I'd love to go there! I would feel like I'm in a Bond movie...only with Jake.

That's a really nice, interesting interview - stunning, stunning photo, such a beautiful man, seemingly inside and out

theshowerlady said...

You know, with all his "actorly poise" there is something very special about photos of Jake. Even in the posed ones. There is an openness and a way he connects that is totally unique. As practiced as he's become in the whole photograph thing, there is still something so accessible about him...I find it hard to explain. Would someone cue up the soundtrack from The Natural?

cina said...

^^^You're right, that was OT. Next time if it involves gossip, could you please post it to the forum, instead? I ask this as a reader of the blog. Thanks!

Honestly, I wouldn't mind if we didn't have that discussion in the forum either. The gossiping about his love life is really tedious and so not relevant. In my most humble opinion, Jake is worth so much more than that.

dottieb said...

In those photos of Jake with the laptop, you can just tell he's reading Jake Watch!

Anonymous said...

As far as I'm concerned, Jake will aways remain totally single and available. And I don't care if he ends up married to the same woman for 50 years and has 18 children. All the rumors, the speculation, photos of him doing things with and to other women roll right off my back. In my alternative universe, he's mine! And we have wild, wonderful sex! Seriously. Like BPB, I think he is the next George Clooney. And that works for me.

Anonymous said...

Sorry. I don't want to get into gosspi, bcz I find it odious. All I'll say is, just judging from the women Jake has either dated seriously, (KD) or is rumored to be dating,(sex as break-up therapy) I've come to the conclusion that Jake is a chin man. Some men are ass men. Some are breast men. Jake seems to like chins. That is all.

Carla said...

"Oh great, now it will be all over the blogs where Jake and Chris are staying in TX"


Good to know that I am not the only one who feels uncomfortable with those pics. This is not a usual paparazzi situation (where Jake is aware that someone takes his pictures) - a "normal" person has taken those pics stealthily - Jake and Chris felt safe INSIDE the hotel. And it is obviously a private stay over there. I am relieved that the blogger did not know their room number...

But perhaps some of the other hotel guests can tell us what Jake prefers for breakfast?
:-(((

get real said...

I just checked that guy's blog again and he removed the name of the hotel, but I agree that taking camera phone pictures of Jake and Chris in a private hotel is not ok. If he did at least he should have friends locked his journal so the whole internet didn't see it. :/ Although I must say I squeed to see that Jake is a Mac person. ;)

Btw, Cina, now that Brits and PG are back in full force here and there is no red alert would be great to see your icon again and not just the outline. Unless you are still undercover. :P

britpopbaby said...

Yeah, those pics are creepy. He's in a very private setting there and is obviously unaware they were being taken. Not nice.

The Guardian interview was insightful but not that well researched as someone on the forum mentioned.

And oh, fryingbunny I concur! Whither the Boo?

Anonymous said...

Boo: MIA:


There are some pap pics up on Perez's site (yeah I know) anyway the post says the pics are from this past weekend and they were taken in L.A. but I thought that there are pics/sightings of him in TX over the weekend? Maybe Perez meant last weekend?? Any way along with the usual juvenile crap, there is a picture of Jake, Atticus and some other dog that isn't Boo!! Was Boo replaced or did that dog just wander into the shot???

cina said...

@Get Real: I think I'll stay undercover. I kind of like my silhouette. ;)

cina said...

Regarding the pap pic at Perez, I don't think that dog is with Jake. That's just a random dog that happened to feel like sniffing Atticus's behind just as the picture was taken! ;)

Anonymous said...

Much as I hate Perez and his stupid comments and drawings over pictures, it was worth a visit for that, the replies to his question made my day, I don't have a dog and even I could tell what it was.

Theory as to where Boo is, I do wonder if he's not a wee bit high maintenance and demands a bit more attention then the laid back Atticus, who's more willing to go with the flow, and perhaps Boo is now in residence with Mama and Papa Gyllenhaal where he gets more 24/7 attention and isn't so prone to eating Jake's furniture

Gotta love his timing! LOL! I still think the dog is with Jake. I think Jake is cheating on Boo. I think Jake really hurt Boo's feelings. Boo is crushed. Just when Boo was learning to trust. How will Jake make it up to Boo??? DOes Jake even feel bad?

Anonymous said...

I don't think perezhilton is correct. His statement is "not accurate." as out American politicians would say! (He's lying!) I think the picture was taken in LA. I think it was taken a couple of weeks ago. Jake is dressed for chilly weather and the length of Jake's hair is shorter than it currently is.

It is a beautiful picture, but what's with the orange face? Has Jake been on a skiing-trip or was it a really bad make-up artist??

nice anonymous said...

I love his blue shirt. I want to put it on & wear it in the morning like a trophy. With the sleeves rolled up. While he cooks me something for breakfast. And the NY Times is spread all over the table between us.

[Dreaming, as I log off from the office for the day.]

phoebe said...

The pic of Jake in that gorgeous blue shirt is absolutely stunning!! My God, he's beautiful..

*off to read the article*

Westenera said...

I can't enlarge the article scan to read it. Are any other Firefox users having this problem?

hmm, i bought the guardian cos i was bored and was really happy wen i saw who was in it! he's real intelligent in it an the pics are to die for! and im gutted at lack of zodiac uk premiere:( my kidnap attempt foiled!

veeveevee said...

Oooh, I like that picture.

Catching up on my Jake reading, as I've been on a business trip for the past 5 days, and haven't had (gasp!) internet access!

NO JAKE!

So I'm on my flight home today, and a woman in the row in front of me is reading some gossip mag, I have no idea which one...but she turns the page, and like a homing beacon in my mind, I look up, and just there...in that teeny crack of space between the seats, I see...JAKE!

I haven't seen him for days and days. I will her, with all the power in my mind, to not turn the page.

Alas...she does...and I am Jakeless yet again.

Answer to where Boo could be: On the John From Cincinnati imdb.com message board, someone who has been on the set asked "What's the name of the guy who walks around with a small fluffy little dog?"

But Boo isn't fluffy.
