WAIT, I SKIPPED A WHOLE CHAPTER SELECTION SECTION OF THE DVD THAT IS JAKE GYLLENHAAL'S CAREER

On my lunch break today, (which is perhaps now yesterday, depending on what time you read this), I was flicking through a tabmag that I may or may not have pilfered from Julie in personnel, when I came across an interview with one of Jake's many rumoured lovers, Robert Downey Jnr - reformed Hollywood bad boy and occasional maestro of song (unreformed) - and it suddenly occured to me that I still haven't seen Zodiac. I feel like I have...but no, I double checked and I haven't.

So for all you UKers out there, Zodiac will apparently be released on the 18th of May. But this is not why I write. Oh no. I thought I better inform you all that during the filming of Zodiac it seems Jake may have had an effect on RDJ. Take the following quote:

What do you think when you see yourself in some of your earlier films?
'Handome. Sexy. Drunk!' I don't know...'Tired. That dog almost bit my knee off'. That type of stuff. 'That was a fun day. God, I ate way too much rice before lunch.' Or 'Goddamn it, Bobby, I love you. You're a good guy.' Or: 'Did I bang her?' And the answer, usually? Umm, you're imagining I have total recall. I'm just going to imagine 'yes' and see if that triggers anything.

It's like some Gyllenbabble just exploded all up in his brain! Or maybe this is down to years of drink and drug abuse - who can really say?

Remind me to give Julie her magazine back.

WTF? Now I know why they became such good friends on the set of Zodiac. It´s really no wonder. :)) I really wish to be a fly on a wall when they meet up to talk.

And didn´t Jake say something about "every sentence out of his (RDJ) mouth is an adventure"? Yeah, well....

pink mist said...

Umm, I think that RDJ just showed off his BaffleMaster skills compared to which, I am afraid that Jakey has still a long way to go...

Yeah, I don't think this was a case of Jake rubbing off...RDJ's always sounded that way. Another creative genius whose mind is way ahead of the rest of him, and us.

Plus the drugs probably helped, too.

I can certainly understand why Robert would want to BE Jake. Who wouldn't want to be 20 years younger and look like a god, ooze charm, and be smart and talented and wise and have dozens of beautiful women blackberrying you 24/7!!!! And for Jake,not only is he an intellectual stimulant, Robert defines the essence of a Free Spirit. Totally. When Robert opens his mouth it's poetry.There are two people out here who I love for their adorableness. Robert and Drew. And now Jake's worked with both.

Once more I'll send a prayer to the TV Gods that when Zodiac finally gets released in good old Blighty, someone can get both Jake and Robert on the Jonathan Ross show for an interview together - TV gold

get real said...

So, "Rendition"'s release date has been moved up to October 12th from November 30th. Hope that means it will be at the festivals like Venice or Toronto (love that festival!) and that Jake will be there. :)

And YES, would LOVE Jake and Robert to be interviewed together. *Sigh*

call me cherita said...

^^^Jake and Robert together would definitely be the ultimate Zodiac publicity! But it really would have to be on one of those hour-long shows like we have over here, where the guests stay for the whole show. I don't watch UK talk television...do you have something like that? With a host that could handle them both? ;) I'd pay money to see it.

Anonymous said...

They should do a special and have Jon Stewart do an hour long interview with both of them. I have a feeling about Rendition...that it will open at Toronto and Jake and Reese will be there. I have nothing whatsoever to base this on, just my gut. And I think Rendition will also go to the Vancouver IFF.

Jonathan Ross has interviewed them both before, and they both totally 'get' his interviewing style, which tends to be very cheeky and very funny. IIRC he spent most of his interview with Jake, for TDAT, trying to get him to change his surname into something more 'Hollywood' - just wish I could remember some of the suggestions he was coming up with.

kokodee said...

I would so kill to watch the Jonathan Ross interview. His interview with Jim Carrey was one of the funniest things I'd seen on TV.

You know what will be even more fun? Having little Ant and Dec do an interview, and getting the real jist on Boo. They even managed to make George Clooney seem mortal

claire said...

You know I have that interview that Jake did with JR somewhere on video but I have no way of getting said video onto my pc and if I ever find out how, I will be posting it somewhere for all to see

smurfette said...

LOL!! I know the feeling, dear!

I know I'm not a brain surgeon, but or a rocket scientist, but I don't get what that says.

BTW what's the name of that magazine?

Hey BPB, give Julie back her mag!

The LOGO channel is airing the GLAAD Awards tonight for anyone interested in seeing Jake.

cina said...

It would be amazing if IHJ would cap that... *sigh*

I've discovered something. I don't think I can go for more than three or four days without getting "restless" for my Jake fix.

Katie said...

"I've discovered something. I don't think I can go for more than three or four days without getting "restless" for my Jake fix."

You're fortunate Anon - I'm unable to get through 3 or 4 hours without getting my fix...

Anonymous said...

Anon 2PM here.I know. I definitely need a "Jake fix" ever few hours. Sad but true. Love looking at him. Never tire of it. But when he does that disappearing thing, I'm conflicted. It's like, "Good. He's not being bothered by paps!" Then its "Dang! Where's my Jakey???" Guess I just need to know he's still here. Jakelessness is a terrible condition. It's like Sir Elton must of had him in mind: "How wonderful life is when you're in the world..."or somethin' like that. (smile.)

heddaparsons said...

Huh?? He has Gyllenbabble beat by a mile!

Just saw Jake on the GLAAD Awards. *ded!* Totally. He was SO damned sexy, and he was working it. Had that swagger, a hint of badass and
dear GAWD does he know how to work a live audience. If those folks were screaming, he was definitely enjoying and feeding it. I adore this man!!!! I just...can't help it. Shit.

Anonymous said...

Anon 4;35 here. Just so you know. The Logo channel will air these awards several times including on Sunday at least twice. Jake comes on in about the last 20 minutes. It's 2 and a half hours and well worth watching, but if you want to record Jake's part it's at the end.

Here is the download from IHJ of Jake at the GLAAD awards!!

I saw the video clip at IHJ. Thanks. Wow. Jake said everyone falls in love with Jennifer and he'd "really like to hang out with Jennifer every day." I wonder what this does to all the Reese rumors especially since no one has seen them together? I think Jake and Jennifer have major chemistry. I wasn't sure about the Reese rumors and was half starting to believe them, but now I don't know. If I was dating a guy and he acted all flirty with someone else and said that stuff in front of millions of people I would be pissed. It's one thing to give an award to a good friend, but he was "handling" Jennifer on stage. I loved it. Or maybe Jake is just a very sharing person.

Anonymous said...

I don't want Jennifer to be with Jake. I don't mind her. I just don't think she is special enough. Jake needs someone extraordinary.
I think she would just want him for an ego boost. I wouldn't mind Reese very much, but honestly, so far, the only one I really like is Natalie. Altho, he and Penelope Cruz made a stunning couple.

Anonymous said...

OK. Now that I've seen the video clip, I'm convinced. Totally. Jake and Jennifer are definitely, at the very least FWB. He had "that look." The up side is I don't think she's the only FWB he has. He's not promiscuous. He's just kind. I like the way he says "settle down!" He is so self-assured. And people obey him! I love strong, sexy, hot, assertive Jake. Takin' charge. Wish he would settle me down!

Prophecy Girl said...

Thanks for the link, anon, but can I remind everyone that if you want to discuss who Jake is/isn't/should be/shouldn't be dating, to please take it to the forum. That topic's been retired from the comments. Thanks.

PG I am Anon 5:37 AM BST, who posted the GLAAD/IHJ download link but I am not any of the other Anons who posted after that talking about Jake and Jennifer. I just wanted people to see the great speech Jake gave, not to speculate on J/J.

Anonymous said...

I fell out of love with this board.

Where sthe magic? The scandal? My hedonistic tastes are not being attended to and you know what? I think I simply fell out of love with Jake...we grew apart. When he hooked up with that chocolate bunny - well I just lost the love. I guess no one else saw it coming.

Not even the chocolate bunny.

Prophecy Girl said...

Anon 5.37, I don't think I worded that very well because I didn't mean to insinuate you were part of the discussion that followed your comment. We always welcome linking!

PG, no problem! ;)

britpopbaby said...

How many times do we have to remind people Jake is single and forever will be.

He truly is the new George Clooney, respectfully remaining single as not to induce mass suicide.

I have no comment for Chocolate Bunny Anon, simply that I don't get you.

LOL.

I would rather see him with Jennifer then Reese. Reese seems fake sweet to me. I've never liked her.

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ DUDE! Seriously. Not here!!

theshowerlady said...

(sigh!) It has now been four days? (April 18th) since we saw the Precious Angel. If not for the GLAAD stuff we would have been totally Jakeless. The condition of Jakelessness can only be cured in one way. GLAAD took the "edge" off things a bit...but only a bit. I really hope we will hear an announcement soon about a new project. And I really need to talk to Gavin Hood before he finishes editing Rendition. There may be a need for re-shoots.

This is some kinda schizophrenic disorder we got goin' on here. On the one Jake hand, we are crazy about him and can't get to see enough pics about him EVER.

On the other Jake hand, we are very glad when the paps are not intruding in his life. We wish the paps would leave him alone ALWAYS.

These two contradictory Jake desires can only co-exist in the soul of a bonafide Jake supportive fan. They make perfect Jake sense to me!

theshowerlady said...

It doesn't seem contradictory to me. There are pictures I consider fairly harmless. Jake getting coffee. Jake at a Lakers' game. Jake leaving a restaurant,getting in his car after lunch.
Jake walking the dog. Even some of the cycling pictures. But the video that was floating around recently that showed Jake and some people in what was clearly a residential setting, (when there was some debate about whether one of the women was Reese?) I felt was out of line. I think the people who shot it (x17?) were violating the law and trespassing.
And really, I think many of the pictures with family members are out of line. Not all, but many. I thought it was horrible that Maggie and Peter had paps on their doorstep ringing the bell all night long the day they brought the baby home from the hospital. I think it's horrible to have them staking out Jake's home or, when he's in NYC, the place where Chris lives. I hate it when they shout at him to provoke him into reacting for a better ($$$) shot.
That doesn't seem contradictory to me. I guess I just try to reconcile reality of being a public figure, with the basic human right to privacy. There's a difference between free speech issues and harrassment and stalking.
