WHAT IS THIS?

I showed up to South Carolina last night with my notecards in hand, ready for our very own Presidential candidate to show his stuff in the candidate's debate when I realized that someone was missing. Who was it? Oh, right. Jake. And where was Master Gyllenhaal?



BRILLIANT! Everyone knows that kissing hands and shaking babies is the number one way to win over the public! Glad to see Jake is truly on board for the Presidential race, looking appropriately collegiate and family friendly. Victory is inevitable. So who wants to contact Robert Downey, Jr. about the VP gig?

More at IHJ.

You guys (gals) are so hilarious it's not even funny. Can always count on you for a good belly laugh -- thanks!! Meantime, how about Jennifer Aniston for VP? Or JA for prez and JG for VP, if the VP can be, er..., underage??

I do adore photos of Jake with his family, especially Maggie...but I feel compelled to admit that seeing him pushing a baby stroller frightens me a little. Is that wrong? ;)

Fortunately, the beauty of his hands in that second shot more than makes up for this twinge of unease. Gives me a different kind of twinge.

Marina said...

These pics are totally wonderful. :)

Marina said...

^^Did I actually write "totally" in my post? Damn, what that man does to me - turns my brain to mush. *thud*

Victory IS inevitable.

And seeing Jake push a stroller does funny things to me!

I agree about the hands, Cherita. The whole series wonderfully captures his beautiful hands...

Now, are we absolutely sure it's Ramona and not Boo, who in a Diva fit demands that carrying is long longer good enough he wants his own transport, in the stroller ;)

Sweet, sweet pictures.

theshowerlady said...

I LOVE him pushing a stroller!! He looks very comfortable pushing a stroller. YAY!!! Perfect Presidential instincts. I will be more than happy to contact Robert. I want to ask him about that "wet, dark and wild..." comment. He was describing Jake. We don't want any surprises on the campaign trail...altho, if we market Jake as our bachelor president, surprise is good. The juxtaposition of Jake with babies and Jake as "wet, dark and wild.." shows his versatility. And I think about Wet!Jake all the time...well, a lot of the time.

Fascinating shots. He's wearing a backpack and no tennis shoes. Hmmmm. This means something. These pictures were taken in Brooklyn. On the promenade. There was a scene from a great piece of slash called The Bellwether...except not Maggie, but HAL, that took place exactly there!

nice anonymous said...

It's raining & dismal today, though, so Jake's probably annoyed & wondering when he'll get in his run.

Have to go downtown this weekend to take advantage of an excellent sale on coffee. I wonder if I might spot Jake from a distance, wearing his sunglasses. I'm not sure my heart could survive the sudden, unexpected joy of such an encounter.

That baby stroller becomes you, Gyllenhaal! It brings out your.... eyes.

pink mist said...

Poor little Ramona...it's all sweet now but it won't be easy growing up with an Uncle Jake.

First, what are the chances she finds a boyfriend remotely as cute as THAT?
Also, how embarrassing will it be to find that all her girl-friends are too busy drooling over her uncle to care about her problems?

Ah, The Brooklyn Promenade I thought it looked familiar! Cute pictures.

Showerlady, you are too funny! :)

britpopbaby said...

Oh PG, forgot to mention, I spoke with RDJ and he said he'd be thrilled to jump on our ticket as long as we get him some rice and declare every Friday national Luau day.

I should have known you were on top of it! We're set then. I should start making yard signs.

nice anonymous, I have no idea if you work for a living, are independently wealthy or if you are homeless and sneak into cyber cafes to use the internet, but if Jake were wandering around any area of Brooklyn,(Cobble Hill?) or the West Village or Tribeca, or SoHo or the East Village or Chelsea, or DUMBO, or the Village proper, per se, I would be "all over that bitch" to quote our beloved PG, hoping for a "chance encounter." You owe it to all of us, not only to yourself. And really, you're more likely to run into him during the week, than the weekend. IMHO. Example: The other day. Pictures of Jake were taken as he wandered thru the Meatpacking District. suspect he probably stopped in a PAstis for a late lunch or an brunch or whatever.Weekends, the bridge and tunnel crowd hang out there. No Celebs would ever be caught dead at PAStits or those very extremely expensive stores on the week-end. Nice anonymous,on behalf of all of us who cannot, plz!...try.

Anon 6:07 here. I didn't mean
PAS tits. I meant Pastis. (I found their omelets dry.)

britpopbaby said...

That's a shame because 'PAStits' sounds like an awesome eatery.

^^ Actually around the corner is the restaurant PAStits... try the milk!

Hmmmmm....

I took a look at the whole series of pics on IHJ and the one picture of Peter I noticed that Peter is wearing what looks like a wedding band on his left hand. Did Maggie and Peter get married quietly like Heath and Michelle??

Anonymous said...

Could be. Didn't Maggie say she wanted the whole shebang?? Peter was working on two films,then she did a little work, now she's getting ready for Batman which I think she will go to London for, and she and Peter took a little break in Paris and Jake's been in Morocco,London, and promoting Zodiac. Maybe they are wearing some kind of engagement/commitment rings, but when would they have had time to do it and I don't think they'd do it without Jake and the family. Just a surmise.

Anonymous said...

That definitely does not look like Peter in those pictures. That may be a relative of his though?

nice anonymous said...

Anonymous 6:07, I really miss my ground-floor apartment on Horatio Street, right near Washington. (Unfortunately, the neighborhood's appeal eventually made it unaffordable for me, though I'm glad that Jake's happy to be walking around my former haunts.) No, I live much further uptown now & work part of the time in Connecticut, so any stalking activities sort of fall by the wayside to my adult responsibilities. I'd have to call in sick ... which is tempting ... so tempting I'm afraid to think about it even more ... on a nice day ... wandering the West Village ... seeing where the former modest tenants were tossed out for luxury stores.

No, I don't expect to see Jake on Bleecker Street on a Saturday. Screams would ensue. His clothing would be torn. Those double-decker buses would really have something to gape at. (But did you see the Spring Sale Porto Rico is having on its house blend? It's less than a dollar for a pound !!! In remarking this, I feel like one of those shills that shows up in the comments occasionally. But I hope it's bait to attract Jake. C'mon Jake -- Murray's, at least?)

6:07 here! OMG! My daughter lives on the upper east side and works in Connecticut!!!! Coffee sale??? She LOVES her coffee!...daughterdearest! Is it you??? OMG! And you've shaved your moustache today! Bless your pointed little head!

OK. OT, but not: Jake will probably go to Cannes for a few days for Zodiac. OK. Seeing the pictures of Maggie and Jake walking Ramona in NYC made me think. I read somewhere that Batman is finished in Chicago and will shoot in a soundstage/studio in London for the rest of it. Maggie will probably have to go to London. And no way will she go without her baby and babydaddy. So if Maggie and Peter and Ramona are in London for Maggie's work. And Jake is in Cannes for Z, wouldn't it make sense that Jake would go to the UK to visit with them if he is able? We need to try to find out when Batman starts shooting in London. I'm thinking Z will screen during the latter half of the festival. Don't know.

WOOO HOOOOO JAKE IS IN NEW YORK CITY!!!!!!!!!!!

I know what I'm doing this weekend. Combing the city in search for Jake.

I wish I had my Jake Watch button so that I could wear proudly when I play private investigator this weekend. Just in case I find him ;)

Carla said...

Sorry to destroy some hopes, but Jake is back in LA....

OMG! Is that Reese picking him up?

heddaparsons said...

He's back in L.A. already!! Oh well. The picures made me squee out loud!!

2:47: Jared originally posted gal pal or something, but someone posted in the comments section that they thought that was a former PA picking him up. She could pass as a Reese stunt double!!

nice anonymous said...

Maybe in his professional lifeJake likes to surround himself with pointy-chinned blondes.

Alas, Anonymous, I'm not your daughter (I think) because as far as the Internet goes, my mother's got the e-mail thing down, and eBay, but she doesn't visit blogs -- that I know of, anyway. Also, I'm not sure she'd be able to identify Jake under all possible occasions. (She thinks he's cute, BTW, but "too Jewish-looking" -- I know, I know, but she's my mother.)

Anonymous said...

Someone on JJ thinks the tabloids are mistaking this girl for Reese. Wouldn't THAT be something! I think Jake should hire one of those celebrity look alikes and really have some fun with this...or maybe he already has! LOL! He sure didn't hang around NYC very long. And there were pics just before that of him in Texas with Chris. Hmmmm.

Anon 6:07 here. That's OK niceanonymous. I knew she wouldn't shave off her moustache...she's become very attached to it.

Oh. And I LOVE Jake's looks. I harbor enormous amounts of lust for him just based on his looks. Then add the niceness part and the sweetness part and the funny part and I am totally obssessed with him and couldn't hide it if I wanted to...so no. I'm not your mom.

Anonymous said...

You know, if you believe Jake has had these relationships of course with Kirsten, and now Reese, and maybe Aniston, I gotta say...I am so NOT threatened by the looks of these women! I got a clenched tummy when I saw him with Penelope Cruz. My tummy did back flips when I saw him with Natalie...but my stomache was strangely silent about these others...except for Ramona. Whoa. Ramona gave me gas!

3:06PM: Hmmm. If that is the assistant that was with him during the Zodiac shoot and the '06 awards season then he "re-hired" because he had two totally different PA's during the Bafta's/Rendition/Zodiac PR stuff. Is it common for actors to recycle PA's or are some just on call or on staff of the agency they are with. If true I hope this means that he has something lined up because that's the only reason his PA would probably pick him up fromthe airport: because he has to get somepalce and on time! He sure doesn't need a PA to do errands or walk his dog!

Anonymous said...

3:06, I think picking him up for an appointment is a good guess! It might also explain why he spent such a short time in NYC. He's usually there for longer spells. Altho, I have a theory that Jake will spent most of his time in Brooklyn, when he's in NYC...and will probably not be in NYC as much as he used to..bcz of the pap situation. I think it realy pissed him off BIG TIME to have the paps bothering Chris and camped outside the apartment 24/7. They did it to Maggie, in the West Village, too. Right when she and Peter were dealing with new baby stuff.

Anonymous said...

5:15: PM I agree with the Brooklyn theory, it would be perfect.

theshowerlady said...

(sigh!) I love coming here!! I just finished reading the posts in this thread, and it's as if we were all at a slumber party drinking gin and having this great unending conversation and it's hilarious! I mean, do you realize how hysterically funny we all are...and really very few of us would be as funny without the others to feed off of. Sometimes we hit a groove, I mean we are In The Zone and it is priceless! Maybe it's that time of the month, but I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy right now. I might even need a laxative. LOL!

Anonymous said...

I still think there is some truth to the Reese stuff and that is why he didn't spend so much time in NYC.

Tuesdays and Fridays have been the nights that Jake & Reese have been spotted together.

He arrived in Austin on Saturday, which means he made it a point to be in LA friday night.

Maybe the assitant was watching his dogs and dropping and picking him up from the airport.

only1annabel said...

Aw pictures like this warm my heart! He looks damn cute pushing a pram!

citi girl said...

Oh well, looks like I have no luck meeting him. Myabe next time he's in town. Thank goodness I checked before I heading around town.

It would have been a dream come true, but I'm glad he had a safe trip back to Los Angeles. His pups are waiting for him :)

Question for anyone who might know: did Maggie move to Brooklyn or is she still in the West Village?

Thanks!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I heard they were moving to Brooklyn. Then I heard they bought a place and were re-doing it. I think they may have moved by now, bcz Jake and Maggie were definitely in Brooklyn in these most recent pictures walking Ramona on the promenade. Maggie looked so free and happy.
BTW, Anon 6:49, how would anyone know when Jake arrived in Austin or for how long he stayed there.
I'm not being argumentative, I'm just very curious.

Jake pushing a pram makes me want him even more! Is that weird?
