QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Come on! We're going to fuck all night!"

- Jake "The Machine" Gyllenhaal

OK, perhaps context is a necessary part of understanding this quote, but I don't want to be a buzzkill. Just enjoy it for what it is. This delicious morsel of Gyllenism can be found HERE, part of a Total Film story that is viewable in its entirety in the forum because Katie is awesome and scanned it in for us.

In other film-related news, it looks like those Zodiac Cannes rumors are true. Shall I warm up the chopper? I've flown to France before, you know. I keep forgetting this movie hasn't been released in most of the world. I could make a snarky comment about the stupid staggered release dates, but even that complaint seems old and outdated by now.

HAHAHAHhahahahahAHAHAHA

It was lethal enough in the tiny print of Katie's scan, but seeing it "up in lights" on the blog...just drag me away now. I'm a gibbering puddle of girl-goo.

Yes, I do think this cavalier disregard for our sanity calls for some stern, ahem, "punishment"....

Oh yes please....

Yup, me too! Mine involves me, a tub of strawberry Haagen Dazs and Jake wearing nothing but a smile and a cowboy hat ;)Oh my,someone please pass the smelling salts!

lol! One can never tire of these morsels of gyllenisms.

And on a side note...Vive la France!
At last, for us poor Europeans Zodiac is headed our way! I hope Jake makes a red carpet appearance to compensate for over 18 months absence!

I think it's a pretty good bet Jake will probably show up at Cannes. If the film is in competition, it would make sense for Paramount and Fincher and Warners (European distributor) to want the most charming, persuasive and beautiful person associated with the film to be there to sell it. If I were them, I'd have all four principles, Jake & Robert for sure, Chloe and Mark if possible.

As for the quote, I agree with others, sometimes "context" is really not very important. It's the thought that counts.

Jules said...

That quote will be fun for a long time.

Repeatedly.

:)

Carla said...

Who cares about context?
You don´t need to say it twice, Jake...:-)))

Cannes:
I am really excited - this is a great honour - Cannes is the most important Filmfestival (with Venice & Toronto) worldwide....
I had never expected ZODIAC to be in the competition. Absolutly great!

Marina said...

Whaaa? He said that? The guy is gonna kill me dead one day. *Thud*

theshowerlady said...

Justread elsewhere they expect Jake and Robert in Cannes!!! How could they not!

Marina said...

YAY!!! I was hoping for that. :)

i just had the most boring day of my life. and to top it, i listended to the most boring lecture ever: all 90 minutes of it. i only survived bcz i imagined what other pics the paps could "alter". i saw jake being chased by coalas, pandas, giant mice or rabbits or amourous rhinoceros.

i'm off to watch some casanova.

Things could get a bit soap opera-ish in H'wood...what with Natalie Portman just getting into town. She spends most of her down time in NYC or with Gael whatisname.But he's not around. She's going to Cannes, too, with her movies. This could be one of those Shakespearean comedies, like 12th Night or Missummer's Night.
I know. My imagination is inventive. Why, I should be writing a gossip blog!

Oh darlings! I think I’m getting that tingling feeling again!

heddaparsons said...

Best quote ever, out of context or not!!

Good news about Zodiac and Cannes, not only do I hope Jake and Robert show but Mark, Chloe and Fincher as well. Come on guys, make this a group effort, It looked like Jake was the only one promoting this movie here in the US.

Katie said...

I'm plotting in a Cannes sense....

I can just see Jake's quote here flying round the blogs! Great stuff PG!

This quote will float thru the ether and it's point of origination will be etched in people's minds...as JW! At the very least you could say your reputation is cemented!

BeABee said...

LOL!!!

and nothing more:P

He is SUCH a damned tease....

well it is the least they can do, after pushing it to March not to have it compete with DreamGirl for the oscar-push. Hope it gets good reviews in cannes, at the very least, I think they are more artsy-oriented and would be a great honor. I think Fincher is very popular there, and Zodiac has good chances.

Depends on what the competition is and also how many awards are given.
Natalie Portman will be there along with Jude Law for My Blueberry Nights and...Gael Garcia Bernal will be screening Deficit, a
movie he directed, but not in competition. So it appears that everyone will be in Cannes. Wonder if Reese, Ryan, or Jennifer will be there. Angelina will be there with the Daniel Pearl movie, A Mighty Heart,Brad for Oceans's 13. Cannes is difficult.There are TONS of private invitation only parties given by studios, Corporate sponsors,etc.ID required,tight security. There are private villas leased, or celebs staying on yachts. Not just hotels. I'm just saying, you might see celebs around, but not as many as you might expect. If I were going to Cannes, I wouldn't go only for a weekend. I would make sure my visit included a Monday, Tuesday or a Wednesday, Thursday. Best time to run into celebs is afternoon weekdays. Oh and good luck finding a place to stay. You're better off finding a place not too far away and going in for the fun.

I love Toronto and Vancouver the best. Toronto is fun. But you better make hotel reservations now for September. That's where I saw BBM. No. I didn't see Jake or Heath.

veeveevee said...

I don't even CARE to know the context of this quote - it says all I need to know.

C'mere Jake...I'm ready! ;)

pink mist said...

Aww, thank you Quoted-Out-of-Context-Jake!
