Yep, I’m Gay

April 14, 1997

"I hate that term 'in the closet,'" says Ellen DeGeneres, the aforementioned sitcom star whose all-pants wardrobe and sometimes awkward chemistry with male ingenues was provoking curiosity from fans and reporters long before her sexuality became a minor national obsession. "Until recently I hated the word lesbian too," she continues. "I've said it enough now that it doesn't bother me. But lesbian sounded like somebody with some kind of disease. I didn't like that, so I used the word gay more often."

What she hasn't been able to bring herself to do, until now, is use the word gay along with "I am" in public. Indeed, for a lot of men and women whose livelihood depends on the goodwill of millions, those may be the three scariest words in the English language.

No thanks, but Tooth might be interested in your “get it up” invite, as long as you’re making the request in the dark corner of a West Hollywood parking lot.

Jake sighting in SC said...

Posted on OMG

Blogger Jake sighting in SC:

Some of you may know this already, but a movie is being filmed in Columbia starring (my favorite) Jake Gyllenhaal and (not-so-favorite) Jessica Biel. It crossed my mind the other day that because they are sort of living in a house in my neighborhood and because Columbia isn't that big, I should begin watching out for celebrities! Today, I was driving out to the golf course at Cobblestone Park in Blythewood with three of my student volunteers and we were looking at a wedding book and talking weddings. We were stopped at a light about to turn right and three people came out into the cross walk and started crossing the street. One of the girls in the car screamed, "That's Jake Gyllenhaal!" And it was. White henley, nice jeans, and aviators. And Jake Gyllenhaal! I'm embarrassed to say that all screamed like small children and there is no way he didn't hear us screaming. We could have reached out of the car windows and touched him-- just before getting arrested-- but we could have!

There’s nobody to be blamed for Jake’s behavior but Jake.

Exactly. I can't believe people still are all "poor jakey!!" It's ridiculous.


What if Jake has a good excuse for bearding and keeping a low profile? Like well-concealed domestic life?

Anonymous said...

"Yes, I think Jake's public reaction (lack of reaction) would be the same."

Don't agree at all. I think his lack of reaction was everything to do with trying to distance himself from BBM and Heath as much as possible. I can't imagine him trying to distance himself from anyother of his former co stars/films like that.


Trying to "distance himself from BBM and Heath" doesn't make sense to me.

What could Jake possibly gain by that? How could his "distancing" make a difference? People are going to forget about BBM? Interviewers will never bring it up?

Nailed filming said...

Nailing down a spot among the stars

Shooting begins the week of April 14 in the latest big-screen adventure to make its way to Columbia.

So I did what any good neighbor would do and headed over to the State House the morning of Monday, April 14, to greet the cast and crew with an official Talk About Town welcome.

The movie, by the way, is called “Nailed.” It’s a David O. Russell film that will star Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel and Tracy Morgan. And Columbia is standing in as Washington, D.C., in this political satire, which is why filming is taking place around the State House complex.

Now, I didn’t have any candy or flowers as I wandered onto the grounds, but I did want to give Jake and Jessica and Tracy a warm greeting and a hearty handshake. Especially Jessica, who was named Esquire’s sexiest woman alive in 2005.

I’ve loved her work ever since her role in 2001’s “Summer Catch,” a cool little baseball movie about the Cape Cod League in which she played the love interest for Freddie Prinze Jr.’s character. In my opinion, it was the greatest movie ever about a summer collegiate baseball league, and I’ve seen them all.

I’ve also been to quite a few Columbia Blowfish summer collegiate games, and I’ve never seen anyone who looks like Jessica hanging around Capital City Stadium.

I briefly thought about popping my head into a trailer and inquiring into whether Jessica needed a personal assistant for the duration of the filming, but I decided against it. I figured it only could lead to some sort of pistol-whipping and a rough escort off the State House grounds.

Of course, I’m almost just as excited about the arrivals of Gyllenhaal, best known for his Oscar-nominated role in “Brokeback Mountain,” and Tracy Morgan, the former “Saturday Night Live” star who plays a big part these days in making “30 Rock” one of TV’s very best sitcoms.

It’s fun to spot some real stars over at the State House for a change. Normally, the biggest name over there is Gov. Mark Sanford, and he’s quite possibly the dullest man on the planet.

There hasn’t been this much excitement in town in a couple of years ago, when there was a little extra sizzle over the numerous sightings of Kevin Bacon, who was filming “Death Sentence.” In fact, he was spotted so frequently that by the end of filming, virtually everyone in the greater Midlands area could be linked to the actor by less than six degrees.

(I had my own brush with Bacon at — in one of those odd coincidences — the annual Mayor’s Breast Cancer Awareness Breakfast. Get it? Bacon at breakfast. Anyway, he looked at me like a cold bowl of oatmeal after we were introduced by Hootie drummer Jim Sonefeld. I didn’t even get a chance to tell him how I thought his greatest character was Fenwick in “Diner” before he turned to talk to someone far more interesting than me.)

Hopefully, “Nailed” will fare better both critically and at the box office than the violent “Death Sentence.” The plot is, well, let’s out it this way, intriguing.

In a script that features Kristin Gore, daughter of Al, as a co-writer, Jessica plays a shy Midwestern woman who accidentally gets shot in the head with a nail gun and becomes sexually uninhibited. So she heads to Washington to lobby for better health care for the oddly injured and meets up with the congressman played by Gyllenhaal.

OK, it’s not your typical boy-meets-girl story line, but I’m willing to give it a chance because it stars Jessica. (By the way, the first sighting of her that I’ve heard about came from a co-worker, who said a friend of hers spotted Jessica dining at Mo Mo’s Bistro one Saturday night.)

I had no such luck as I strolled along the Cinelease trucks and Presidential campers that lined Senate Street from Gervais to Pendleton on April 14. Even when I walked around to the back of the S.C. State Office Building — where I saw the handwritten signs that read “To Set” and “Extras Holding” — I still didn’t see Jessica, Jake or Tracy. Finally, I gave up and left.

I was afraid of running into Mark Sanford.

The drug rumors and BBM which is a gay themed romance and we all know Jake wants a straight image now are his reasons for the distancing imo.

Clearly his silence and attitude are deliberate, otherwise he would've said something, attended a memorial or anything he is Matilda's only godfather after all. Friendship or no friendship, inactive role in Matilda’s life or not he should’ve acknowledged Heath in some way for his image's sake but I guess he thought cutting all ties to Heath would protect his immaculate golden boy reputation. Imo that's what he believed this strategy will achieve but obviously it backfired.

But Jake's silence has no effect because it can't change public perception nor facts:

a) Jake did play a gay cowboy
b) Jake is most recognised as gay cowboy from BBM
c) Heath is most recognised as Ennis from BBM (at least for now)
d) Jake's Oscar nomination was for BBM.

I don't think Jake's reasons for bearding are of romantic nature i.e. a well-concealed domestic life but career related i.e. getting new projects, so far it hasn't helped him though. It'll be more than a year between Rendition and Brothers, he needs to keep his face in the news somehow you know what they say bad publicity is better than no publicity at all and since his bearding started he's all over the rags and media in general.

As for keeping a low profile as you say he has done anything but that.

Anonymous said...

7:35 I fail to see what that quote has to do with anything, it doesn't prove that he didn't want to distance himself from BBM. As I said I think the drug rumors and BBM are the cause of his conduct, but if you have a better theory I'd be interested in hearing it. :)

Just all over the rags and gossip sites, not media in general. Not even rags are too interested in Reeke.

7.39, I couldn't agree with you more! Jake has no projects. That's why I think he has settled for Nailed. Not like his previous projects : with a respected director and cast. Nailed is just shitty.Director, cast, story, all. Surely, if Jake wanted to do comedy as some seems to think, is this the best available? and as for dealing with Russell, Ha!
And if he has a well concealed domestic life, why is bearding necessary? can't he just keep it well concealed? And the constant, never ending ramming of his fauxmance down peoples' throats! sheesh!

I think Jake is smart enough not to expect that his silence could distance him from BBM or Heath. General public doesn't care that much about Jake.

At the same time, I'm sure he knew that his, Heath's and BBM fans would "hear" him loud and clear.

Part of his silence could be his clean image. As you know there are rumors about Heath's drug use. And if people thought they were close they'd wonder if Jake is into drugs too. Well accoding to Ted, TT is no stranger to coke. ;) To be fair I believe most of Hollywood is on some kind of drug though.
Probably not only the drugs are the issue, I think it's also to avoid gay rumors. Like how close were they really?
I think Jake didn't expect many co-stars of Heath's to pay tribute to him and he thought in this case no one will notice he didn't say anything too. But it came differently and now it's totally noticebale he didn't say anything. Not only that what leaves a bad impression is the shopping trip in Shoho shortly after Heath's death and other unfortunate sightings before and after. If you don't want to say anything fine, but please keep a low profile.

Anonymous said...

8:01 It doesn't make sense, why would he want only Heath's and BBM fans to "hear" him loud and clear with the risk of angering and alienating them but not the large public he’s trying to attract?

Don't you get it? Heath supposedly hung out with Lohan, he definitely hung out with this one creepy Olsen twin, the drug rumors... Jake is still fresh and vulnerable in the business. Some are more scared for their reputation some less. He's a bit of a wuss. He probably talked to the parents and Michelle though. But of course it would have been nice to pay public tribute, so that the public could also learn about the good side of Heath, not only the LiLo, Mary Kate, drug things.
It's great that Heath's other colleagues and family and friends did it!

LOL Heath didn't need Jake's words for the public to know how amazing he was. The people who paid tributes to him are way more important and genuine than Jake and what they said about Heath was very touching. Jake’s silence hasn’t affected Heath’s image and integrity but his own.

The Illusionist Movie Review

Paul Giamatti as Chief Inspector Uhl and Rufus Sewell as the villainous Crown Prince are both excellent in their supporting roles. But truly the surprising performance in the film comes from Jessica Biel as Sophie. Known for her roles in 7th Heaven and action movies (Blade: Trinity, Stealth), this is Biel’s first shot at playing a character of this ilk and she absolutely nails it [LOL!]. Biel’s character Sophie needs to come across as a strong, intelligent woman and that’s exactly how Biel plays her.

Luke MacFarlane’s Gay

Our minds are totally blown. Actor Luke MacFarlane, who plays gay on Brothers and Sisters, came out as a living, breathing homosexual!

While people have been gossiping about his bedroom antics for years, MacFarlane didn’t feel ready until now - when he’s a regular on a hit television drama.

I don’t know what will happen professionally … that is the fear, but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen, because it’s my truth. … There is this desire in L.A. to wonder who you are and what’s been blaring for me for the last three years is how can I be most authentic to myself - so this is the first time I am speaking about it in this way.

MacFarlane’s revelation should come as no surprise. He’s previously been seen trotting about with fellow ABC actor, TR Knight. Not to mention his drive-by with Wentworth Miller… During the course of his interview, MacFarlane also discusses his television character’s forthcoming gay marriage - and it’s cultural importance:

Most importantly, in portraying gay people, the more we realize it’s just like portraying anybody else and, gay marriage, it’s not about two people being gay, it’s about two people who love each other and who have decided to commit to each other for the exact same reasons any other couple would get married. Hopefully, the more that becomes part of the cultural awareness it won’t be…

And it makes for great ratings!

Two birds, one stone? Get a "girlfriend" (safe beard) after a long time, play straight, get some publicity and distract the public from gay rumors.

Luke said...

Sitting on the patio of an exclusive Hollywood hotel, wearing a grey T-shirt and red jacket, Macfarlane says he does intend to keep a certain amount of his life private. Asked if he is currently in a relationship, his answer is quick: "That is my personal life. That is where I draw the difference." He does allow though, that he would like to be married some day.

Hm ... Could Luke and Went still be together?

Someone earlier said that OMG is deleting Heath posts. I think it's maybe for the better. Lately if you criticize Jake some fans like to make Heath look bad to somehow justify Jake's behaviour. I noticed the hostility towards Heath increased a bit, I think it's a result of fans questioning the political correctness of Jake's behaviour after Heath's death, though there is no reason why they shouldn't be allowed to do that.

Heath Ledger Warned About 'Dangerous' Behavior 2 Years Ago

Heath Ledger's tragic death earlier this year came as a surprise to the public, but the warning bells were ringing two years ago during the filming of the latest "Batman" flick, “The Dark Knight."

According to an on-set source, Ledger was advised to seek professional help for his personal problems, but turned to the Joker role to mask his psychological woes.

"Heath refused to talk to anyone out-of-character," the source said. "If you tried to communicate with him normally instead of the Joker, he would just ignore you. "He would often come to the set to hang out even on his days off in character, freaking everyone out," the source continued. "Toward the end of filming, he was warned by people that he’d gone too far, but it was almost like he couldn't connect with those who cared for him anymore."

Ledger reportedly locked himself in an apartment for an entire month to fully become the crazed, criminal-minded character, and we're told by another source on the set of "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" that Heath couldn't "snap out of it" and basically "lost sense" of who he was.

"Heath couldn't be himself anymore and that terrified him," said the source, adding that the controversies surrounding his will, alleged cocaine usage and possible love child prove that no matter how “removed” Heath tried to be from the limelight, he could never escape the constant hearsay.

“When you have people talking s—t about you all the time, of course it's hard to stay levelheaded and remember who you really are,” the insider said.

Pop Tarts has also been told that Warner Bros. may be considering cutting scenes from the new film that show the Joker in a body bag after audiences got upset during a prescreening.

"It's highly likely that that will be modified," an insider said.

Reps from Warner Bros. were not available for comment.

Jake Gyllenhaal to Raise Swords as Prince of Persia - Talk About BULL

Hollywood rumor mill has Jake Gyllenhaal setup for the lead in the 2009 Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer video-game movie adaption “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.”

Talk about BULL. If one thing should be obvious from the title of the game is that the star should be Persian or at least Middle Eastern. This isn’t the first video game movie casting rumor for the star of “Brokeback Mountain.” Gyllenhaal is also up for the role of Billy Batson in the DC Comics film Shazam! (Captain Marvel), as well as Spider-Man 4 should Tobey Maguire step down.

Maybe there are no Middle Eastern actors out there? WRONG. How about Sayid Jarrah, actor Naveen Andrews, from “Lost?” Now that’s one bad ass star that I’d love to see star as the Prince of Persia. He already has a huge cult following from his role on “Lost.” And, you know what? When you look at him, he looks like he could be the Prince of Persia (at least moreso than Gyllenhaal).

I worked with Heath Ledger on his last film shoot 'The Imaginarium...' and finished filming with him into the small hours 20th January. Heath was completely professional and hard working and was always prepared to give more. Heath had no problem being himself off set and chilled out with other crew members in between takes. Heath was battling flu, and dressed like Pierrot in white satin on a bitterly cold January night on a moonlit London street and his performance is pure, enchanting magic

Gay TV Team Gets Hitched

It’s a blessed day for gay twosome Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan. The Scottish homosexuals and their public relations team announced today that the men sealed the nuptial deal. From the very excited press release:

Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan confirmed today that, after 22 years together, they have married. The dynamic Scottish design duo were secretly betrothed at the Chelsea Registry office in central London, England.

It was only after experiencing life in Canada that the couple decided to make their long standing relationship official.

“I’m not sure if we would have decided to get married if we hadn’t moved to, and fallen in love with Canada. After a year of living in Toronto, filming Home Heist, it became clear to us that it was time to tie the knot. Canada is such a progressive nation, so welcoming and open-mindedly liberal about gay marriage, that we felt thoroughly inspired,” says Ryan.

McAllister added, “Previously every time someone asked us about getting married, I’d joke that even after such a long time I still wasn’t sure if Justin was the right man! Let’s just say that this year, I’m SURE.”

The service was kept a closely guarded secret, and while the couple’s mothers were both aware of the impending nuptials and gave their blessings, the ceremony was attended by just two close friends, Elaine and George Ponte, who acted as witnesses. Afterward the happy couple and their two witnesses celebrated at The Wolseley on Piccadilly, a favourite London celebrity hangout.


Well, congratulations to you both, gents, even though we’ve never, ever heard of you…

P.S. Comment: Just because their show doesn’t air in these United States of America doesn’t mean they are not famous to millions throughout the UK, Canada and countless other countries in worldwide syndication.

Luke & Wentworth forum post said...

"I suspect that Luke is straight but in denial. When he went to Julliard, all those theater people probably had an influence on him and convinced him he was gay. Deep down inside, though, he is very straight. He just hasn't come to terms with it yet. It may take him years to accept his straightness. I think that's why Went hangs around with him. Went is trying to coax Luke into accepting and embracing his straightness. Went is his bridge to the straight community."

Tori Spelling: Kiss the Bride!

Tori Spelling stars in the new romantic comedy Kiss the Bride, out in select theaters this Friday.

Here’s a synopsis of the film: When Matt (Philipp Karner) receives an invitation to high school best friend Ryan’s (James O’Shea) wedding he’s surprised - especially that Ryan is marrying a woman! Matt plans to rescue his former love from whatever "she-devil" has trapped him into this huge mistake.

On the other hand, Ryan’s perky fiancé Alex (Spelling) takes quite the liking to Matt. As Matt tries to rekindle the old flame, Ryan is intent on putting out any sparks. Matt must deal with "his new best friend" Alex, the two families, and a hometown he thought he’d left entirely in the past. The film proves the boundaries of love are never constant.

Kiss the Bride rolls out into select theaters nationwide this Friday, April 18. Tori’s husband, Dean McDermott, Amber Benson (Tara Maclay on Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Garrett M. Brown (the father on Roswell) also co-star.

Interesting BI - smart guy! :)

This A list actor. 95% of the time film. Single and allegedly never married. This is the first year he used this accountant and when he was reviewing the forms he noticed that he was listed as single on the tax forms. Our actor then proceeded to tell the accountant that the actor has been married for many years. The fact that he has only seen his foreign wife once in the interim did not change the fact that he was married.

Our actor apparently does send money sometimes to his wife, but apparently does so in his corporate name. The accountant got the feeling that the wife actually has no idea who she is actually married to. Our actor meanwhile loves the deduction that comes with being married. It apparently is the one thing he really enjoys about being married. He also uses it as an excuse when a woman tries to pressure him into marriage. He explains to prospective future brides that although he would love to get married to them he is unfortunately already married and the process for divorce will take a year or two. In the meantime why not just live together or be girlfriend and boyfriend. Invariably the relationship dies out before the divorce becomes final. The actor never starts the paperwork and has never been challenged by the IRS about being married. They must not read the tabloids.

"Grey's Anatomy" casts a high school leatherhead and "Road Rules" vet as its two gay soldiers

Ever-scooptastic Michael Ausiello has learned who will be playing the two gay soldiers who are set to share a steamy kiss on an upcoming episode of Grey's Anatomy: Benny Ciaramello (who plays Santiago on Friday Night Lights) and David Giuntoli (best known as a castmember of Road Rules: South Pacific). It's good to see that Grey's is bringing a gay storyline to the screen (with a very romantic kiss, even), especially given that they haven't done much in the way of gay inclusion since, oh, winning a GLAAD award for their Where the Boys Are episode forever ago. Huzzah to them.

PAUL REUBENS JOINS CAST OF ‘NAILED’ WITH BIEL, GYLLENHAAL


I was quite surprised Tuesday when I was wandering around the Statehouse — which is right now doubling as the set of Nailed starring Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal — and I bumped into none other than Paul Reubens, known to many as Pee-wee Herman.

Unbeknownst to me, the good folks at the Internet Movie Database, and pretty much everyone else in the world, he has a role in the film. Which is crazy because I had no idea the guy was still alive, much less acting in movies. And much, much less acting in this movie.

When I saw Reubens on the set, he and the cast were between takes at State Treasurer Converse Chellis‘ office. He wouldn’t give me any inside details about the film, but did say he was playing a Congressional staffer.

That doesn’t explain the fanny pack, Bluetooth or pocket pens, but it does explain why he was seen with Biel at Mo Mo’s Bistro in Columbia on Saturday night, reportedly the cast’s first night in town.

And sadly, while talking to Reubens was cool, I didn’t get to meet the oh-so-hot Jessica Biel.

Anyway, here are a few shots from the set and one from Saturday sent by a friend. It’s pretty distant, but you can see Reubens sitting next to Biel (the chick in the white hat). Click the thumbnail for full size:

Pee-wee Herman in Nailed

Wow Nailed sounds better and better. lol

Dirt said...

"On July 26, 1991, Reubens was arrested in Sarasota, Florida for masturbating publicly in an adult theater. The news media went into a frenzy and the scandal marked the near-death of the character "Pee-wee Herman," reducing both the actor and the persona to an ubiquitous punchline. Although the series Pee-wee's Playhouse had already ended by that time, CBS reacted by dropping its reruns from their lineup. Reubens made a deal with the Sarasota County court: in exchange for a fine and producing a few PSAs, he was given a clean record.

Reubens was arrested again in 2002 in connection with an investigation involving child pornography. Public news stories concerning his case cast doubt upon the suggestion that Reubens intentionally acquired child pornography, as he stated that he was a collector of "erotic artwork" and that he had a sizable collection of vintage erotica with samples dating back to the 18th century. On March 19, 2004, child pornography charges against him were dropped by Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo after Reubens pleaded guilty to a separate "misdemeanor obscenity" charge."

Christian TV Youth Host Comes Out As Gay

Azariah Southworth’s a brave man. After a year-and-a-half of hosting Christian youth show The Remix, Southworth came out as a real life homosexual. Honesty, he says, trumps any old paycheck:

This has been a long time coming. I’m in a place where I’m at peace with my faith, friends, family and more importantly myself. I know this will end my career in Christian television, but I must now live my life openly and honestly with everyone. This is my reason for doing this.

I know I will be cut off from many within the Christian community, and if so, then they didn’t get the point of the life of Christ. I believe by me living my life honestly and authentically now, I am able to be a better person and a better Christian. We all know there are so many other gay people in the Christian industry; they’re just all scared. I was scared, but now I’m no longer afraid.


We bet those “other gay people” are shitting their pants right now wondering whether their secrets will be slipped.

BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE 2008

For actor Cheyenne Jackson, the epitome of tall (6'4"!), dark and handsome, the small-town to Broadway dream had a few detours. Born and raised in Idaho in a house his father built with no indoor plumbing (they used an outhouse), Jackson moved first to the less daunting and bordering city of Spokane, Washington when he was 18. Later, in Seattle, he managed to become a successful ad executive by day (without a college degree) while performing theater at night. He says a shocking death in the family is what ultimately prompted his move to "the big city" -- at 26, Jackson quit his fancy job, sold his new car and moved into a stuffy hotel in Times Square. "I had one contact in New York. I called him and he got me an audition for an agent. My very first audition was for Thoroughly Modern Millie on Broadway, and I booked it. It was like the universe's way of saying, 'This is where you need to be.'"

Currently starring in Xanadu, this year's surprise musical hit based on the 1980 film, Jackson says he's ready to do something different. "I would like to do something old fashioned and cool. Everyone in New York knows me as the high-singing pop guy, but I do have a pretty good range."

Cheyenne’s New Gig

Pop-eye loving Cheyenne Jackson’s about to get a new film credit.

The handsome homo has been cast in director Chuck Griffith’s Shifting the Canvas. The flick, according to the press people, “tells the story about a group of artists living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn who struggle to maintain a rather dysfunctional family of friends in a post-9/11 world challenged by gentrification, deception and sterilization.” Is that sterilization as in white-washing or neutering, both of which are scary.

Griffith’s apparently thrilled to be working with Cheyenne, “Cheyenne is the caliber of actor that a director looks for in commanding a scene…I am both humbled and excited to work with this gifted actor of stage and screen.” No word on how Griffith feels about the rest of the cast, including Kids In The Hall’s Scott Thompson and Gedde Watanabe, who starred as Long Duk Dong in Sixteen Candles.

By the way, the press release informs us of a “unique twist:” “…the openly gay actor will be playing Jens, a straight Ivy League type.”

Absolutely shocking!

Azariah Southworth

Azariah Southworth is the host of a popular Christian TV show called The Remix. The show, a Christian music program, originates in Nashville and is seen in upwards of 128 million homes. Southworth, who is also the show’s producer, has helped launch, er, “major” Christian music acts “such as Jars of Clay, Avalon, Superchick, Building 429 and Rachael Lampa.”

Azariah Southworth just came out of the closet. Good for him, bad for his show.

“I know I will be cut off from many within the Christian community, and if so, then they didn’t get the point of the life of Christ. I believe by me living my life honestly and authentically now, I am able to be a better person and a better Christian. We all know there are so many other gay people in the Christian industry; they’re just all scared. I was scared, but now I’m no longer afraid,” notes Southworth.

No longer afraid—but likely to be unemployed soon.

“Jakey vs Shelfy?

Shelf Ass Jessica Biel somehow conned her way into a starring role opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in Nailed, the first screenplay co-penned by Kristin Gore. No wonder she’s so happily smug…although my sources say, she needs to be careful.

Jakey, you see, is not a fan of her antics. Specifically her paparazzi antics. Especially since inviting the paps around her these days will inevitably expose HIM. And he and Reese like to control their own exposure on their own terms, particularly when it comes to the children.

Shelfy’s approach is more like a free for all – a buffet restaurant where selection is plentiful but quality is compromised. Shelfy’s publicist will call every agency to ensure a large pap presence. Jake and Reese on the other hand like to play favourites. It’s less obvious that way, see?

Will Jakey and Shelfy go head to head on set? Stay tuned…

Shooting is now underway – here’s Shelfy at work yesterday looking…kinda rough.

The body, as usual, is tight and hermy. Her rump, of course, is ridiculous. But Shelfy with bangs and no makeup isn’t exactly the effortless beauty they’re constantly trying to ram down our throats.”

There are already some not flattering reports about Jake's behavior not only on the set but with some people that have encountered him away from the set, rude (set) ignoring people off the set, of course these are only some reports, some say that he was nice when they ran into him, but let's face it, there have been some past reports about Jake's behavior on set going back to Highway: grumpy, spoiled, unpreparred, clashes with the Director, etc. And since he and Reese like to control everything, paps showing up uninvited around Jessica, where let's face it, she is the star of this film, must be making Jake more grumpy than usual. Imagine, playing second banana to Biel.

It was Jake's mouth & tooth:

"Jake Gyllenhall got so upset whe he chipped his tooth on the set of his current movie that he took it out of one of his co-stars. The actor, who is dating actress Kirsten Dunst, revealed that he turned violent after losing his temper while filming his new movie 'Jarhead'

He admitted that it took a long while for the victim of his anger, who will not be named, forgave him for what he had done.

Jake said; "For some reason, I just got so angry that I had chipped my tooth and just started hitting him and we didn't talk for a month after that".

But the director, Sam Mendes, is defending the young star, saying that everyones tempers were high because of the rough filming conditions. He told the Calgary Sun newspaper; "It's 115 degrees; you're away from trees, cars, everything. You can't hear anything because the winds blowing. You don't have your clothes, your car, your girlfriend, anything.

And I really think Jake forgot he was acting a lot of times".

ACTOR’S ANTICS DELAY FILMING OF “NAILED” IN SOUTH CAROLINA

FITSNews - April 17, 2008 - We know, it’s hard to imagine someone this manly throwing a hissy-fit, but according to our source on the set of the movie “Nailed,” that’s exactly what actor Jake Gyllenhaal did yesterday, causing the crew to shut down filming early and spend an additional day shooting at the South Carolina State House.

“He was complaining that the room was too small, complaining about the temperature, complaining about his chair,” our source says. “It was like watching a two-year old have a meltdown every five minutes.”

According to a source in the S.C. Treasurer’s Office, Gyllenhaal’s co-star Jessica Biel has by contrast been “delightfully friendly,” chatting up onlookers and even turning a few cartwheels on the State House grounds the other day.

Sources also tell us that S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford has invited the film’s stars to dine at the Governor’s Mansion with his family while they are in town, although he reportedly hasn’t received a reply yet.

One other thing, we can’t confirm or deny rumors that Sanford plans to pitch Gyllenhaal based on the “Brokeback Fishing Trip” the governor took four years ago with State Sen. Chip Campsen.

"REESE AND JAKE AREN’T FOOLING ANYBODY

FITSNews - October 24, 2007 - You know, we’re one less-than-satisfying mocha away from removing Reese Witherspoon from our “About Us” page. Seriously, people, it’s obvious she moved to South Carolina just to get close to Sic Willie, but for some reason she couldn’t handle his on-again, off-again Rachel McAdams thing. Then came Sic’s strange Maggie Gyllenhaal fetish, which has clearly pushed her over the edge. How do we know? Because Witherspoon is now officially “dating” Gyllenhaal’s brother, Jake, who is, um, how do we put this … gay. Or as Tyler Durden says, “super super gay.”

From some British paper we learn:

The pair met on set of the upcoming movie ‘Rendition’ and have now taken their romance public - they were spotted holding hands and canoodling during a romantic trip to Rome. Witherspoon, 31, whose divorce from former husband Ryan Phillippe was finalized this month, had previously denied a romance with the Brokeback Mountain star. The pair first began dating around March (of) this year, although they were careful to avoid being photographed together.

Clearly the takeaway from this story is that Sic Willie is an enchanting devil who will drive world famous actresses to elaborate ends in a futile effort to conceal their insatiable lust for his body and near-chemical dependence on his emotional availability. That, and the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal is gay. Canoodling? Canoodling! Say no more …"

Citing differences with director David O. Russell, Caan left the set of the film last night and will have to be recast.

So why do you all care if Jake is a jerk? Aren't there other actors worthy of your admiration? I thought you all were no longer Jake fans. Why not support out gay actors?

He was probably really spoilt as a child and never got out of that mindset.

That boy is a diva, always throwing hissy-fits on set.


I've read those interviews and reports too but didn't see anything diva about it:

Zodiac - Jake did what Fincher asked from him but refused to kiss his ass like Mark did. Fincher did that Interview with Jake so there are no bad feelings about it.

Jarhead - Jake lost his temper after chipping the tooth, what's diva about it?

"They are filmed in my building right now and I just watched them shoot a scene...well door was closed. But I did see Jake, Catherine, and Paul Ruebens(otherwise known as Pee Wee) who is in the movie but not listed. James Caan was supposedly in the movie but he has seemed to quit. He was the Speaker of the House...which the role originally was for Tommy Lee Jones. All three actors walked right by me as I was hanging out. It was pretty neat

Anderson Cooper's Hot Ex Boyfriend revealed

Everyone knows Anderson Cooper is gay, but no one knows who he dated until now.

Our friends in the gay mafia here in Hollywood (Yes, it’s real) recently introduced us to the very hot JD ORDONEZ, Anderson Cooper’s ex boyfriend at a party!!! JD’s 22,educated, and is a MARINE MAMMAL TRAINER/BARTENEDER/STUDENT. Isn’t he adorable? Plus, JD’s totally “take home to mother” material.

We like to consider ourselves on the outskirts of the gay mafia, but after this posting we may have to go into hiding in our walk in closet. The only rule about the gay mafia….is that you DO NOT TALK about the gay mafia or it’s members.

The two dated for about two months in NYC before Anderson gave him the boot. JD’s now roaming around Los Angeles, soaking up the sun. But don’t ask him about his Anderson affair, JD is known to be mum on the details.

Even his Myspace page is set to private! So here is all of his MySpace info cut & pasted.

3.54 you might not like to call it "diva" would "unprofessional" suit you better?

Since you asked ... :)

Zodiac - I hate ass kissers so I don't have any problems with Jake's comments.

Jarhead - sounds like an anger outburst to me. I would call it a nasty accident.

"Jake Gyllenhall got so upset whe he chipped his tooth on the set of his current movie that he took it out of one of his co-stars. ...

He admitted that it took a long while for the victim of his anger, who will not be named, forgave him for what he had done.


He chucked a fit at his fellow actor for no reason. Completely unprofessional, diva behaviour.

Jake did what Fincher asked from him but refused to kiss his ass like Mark did.

No, he whined to the press about the big meanie director being mean to him. Even Jake admitted afterwards that he was being immature. Funny that Jake himself can recognise that he has flaws but you gyllenbabblebobbleheads can't.

Tori Spelling relishes role as gay icon

Even in Hollywood where celebrity bashing is a standard practice, Tori Spelling has endured more than her share of mockery. But among one set of fans, the former "Beverly Hills 90210" star is adored.

Gay men, it seems, can't get enough of Tori Spelling, and she hopes to make them happy in romantic comedy "Kiss the Bride," her new movie debuting on Friday in major U.S. cities.

"I'm a huge fan of gays," Spelling told Reuters. "They love me; I love them. They consider me kind of a gay icon, which they've labeled me as."

Spelling began acting as a child on shows such as "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island," which were produced by her famous father Aaron Spelling. But it was in the role of kindhearted teen Donna Martin on "90210" that Spelling gained her own measure of fame and earned a fan base.

For years, popular wisdom had it that the only reason she was hired for "90210" was because her dad's company was behind the show, but she has proven adept not only at acting but also writing a book and being a mom. In other words, Tori Spelling is no daddy's girl. But she is beloved by many gay men, and the gay theme "was probably one of the top things that made me want to do the movie," she said about "Kiss the Bride."

Spelling plays the fiancee of a boy named Ryan, who had a homosexual fling with a friend in high school. When the friend, Matt, learns Spelling's character Alex is set to marry his long-ago lover, he turns up to convince Ryan he is making a mistake by marrying a woman.

3.54,

Zodiac - I hate ass kissers too but in this instance it's just not professional for an actor to criticize his director to the press. Nothing to do with ass kissing.

Jarhead - Yes it was a nasty accident and Jake lost control badly. Very immature/unprofessional behavior on his part.

Jake comes across as boyish and immature. People like that are usually called a diva or unprofessional in their behaviour.

It's not about Jake being flawless. It's about not making things up.


Lights, Bogeyman, Action

"For Jake Gyllenhaal, who stars in the movie as Mr. Graysmith, Mr. Fincher’s attentiveness was a mixed blessing.

Mr. Gyllenhaal said he came from a collaborative filmmaking family: “We share ideas, and we incorporate those ideas.” He added: “David knows what he wants, and he’s very clear about what he wants, and he’s very, very, very smart. But sometimes we’d do a lot of takes, and he’d turn, and he would say, because he had a computer there” — the movie was shot digitally — “ ‘Delete the last 10 takes.’ And as an actor that’s very hard to hear.”

Mr. Gyllenhaal, 26, partly blamed culture shock; he’d just finished “Jarhead” for Sam Mendes, who gave him a much freer rein. Mr. Gyllenhaal stressed that he admired and liked Mr. Fincher personally. And he noted that other members of the “Zodiac” cast had far more experience, adding: “I wish I could’ve had the maturity to be like: ‘I know what he wants. He wants the best out of me.’ ”

That said, Mr. Gyllenhaal spoke candidly about his frustration with Mr. Fincher’s degree of control over his performance.

“What’s so wonderful about movies is, you get your shot,” he said. “They even call it a shot. The stakes are high. You get your chance to prove what you can do. You get a take, 5 takes, 10 takes. Some places, 90 takes. But there is a stopping point. There’s a point at which you go, ‘That’s what we have to work with.’ But we would reshoot things. So there came a point where I would say, well, what do I do? Where’s the risk?”

Told of Mr. Gyllenhaal’s comments, Mr. Fincher half-jokingly said, “I hate earnestness in performance,” adding, “Usually by Take 17 the earnestness is gone.” But half-joking aside, he said that collaboration “has to come from a place of deep knowledge.” While he had no objections to having fun, he said, “When you go to your job, is it supposed to be fun, or are you supposed to get stuff done?”

He later called back and said he “adored the cast” of “Zodiac” and felt “lucky to have them all,” but was “totally shocked” by Mr. Gyllenhaal’s remark about reshoots."

Jake talked about his experience with Fincher. Nothing wrong with that.

UV what the hell are you doing here? Isn't ONTD enough, too bad Caan leaving the set doesn't cancel out Jakes' hissy fit. Now scram back to Gyllenbabble.

"No, he whined to the press about the big meanie director being mean to him."

No, I'm not shocked. but then again I'm not David Fincher so it doesn't count. Just think he's unprofessional to make the comment.
