True Blue

December 11, 2009

Something our dear, closeted Toothy Tile most certainly does not share with his also-in-the-closet brethren like Lloyd Boy-Toyed, Crotch Uh-Lastic and Jackie Bouffant is a virtual cornucopia of straight buds.

I don't mean the pretend kind, but the ones you never see Toothy photographed with. Yeah, you heard me right: These are heterosexual bros with whom Toothy loves to shoot the shit, have a few brews, talk about the broads, all that 100-percent-cotton American man stuff Toothy just can't seem to let go from his, like, totally gay life.

OK, it's cool, I have tons (maybe a few) gay friends who are completely into the SUVs/watching sports/unshowered thing, maybe it's not so completely weird that Toothy's wired that way a little, too?

But what's wacko is when these boy-buds o' Toothy's start, shockingly...

...coming to the put-upon pooftah's defense! At parties! At bars! At ball games! At beach barbecues! It's getting friggin' hi-larious!

And no, these dudes who actually do know Toothy rather well are not defending Mr. Tile's very publicized fauxmance and whether or not it's legitimate, hardly.

Nope, instead, they're busy saying, as of late, that Toothy and his man are doin' just fine, thank you, and further more, "They're the real thing." These het amigos like to tell this to anybody who starts talking crap about their good friend.

Backstabbing gossip gets these hetero friends of Toothy's so very riled up, they've lately been stating how "in love" Mr. and Mr. Toothy Tile happen to be right now. So there!

Wow. With friends like that, who needs gossip columns? But ain't it nice to now how truly true-blue Toothy is?

I knew it all along, didn't you?

I mean, come on, I would never have given a hateful scum-schmuck such press. Toothy's cool. Just currently a bit lost.

And It Ain't: James Marsden, Kellan Lutz, Javier Bardem

"Stupid BV question - why is Austin Mr. and not Grey Goose?"

^^No good question actually. Is Austin not in the picture anymore, or did "Mr and Mr Toothy Tile" sound better, or does Ted feel that although Austin is still with Jake/TT that he's lost his identity? Idk.

December 11, 2009 4:32 PM

What first comes to mind, to me at least, is that Toothy might have tied some kind of a knot with his significant other, (registered partnership?) hence they are refered to as "Mr and Mr Toothy Tile". Wether it´s Grey Goose or someone else, I dare not specualte about.

I do believe that Ted saw Jake and Austin together, but I still don't know if he misinterpreted or exaggerated what he saw. Of course it's possible that Jake is gay as a goose, but I also wouldn't rule out the possiblility that he's bi or straight but experimented a bit with guys (maybe among them was Austin?). The only guy I thought he might have had a crush on was Heath, but then it may have been "just" admiration and a strange attraction between both as a result of being so intimate for the movie. I really have no clue. Sigh. ;)

Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon Shoot Down Engagement

Are wedding bells in the future for Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon? According to an online report, the Oscar nominated actor is set to propose to the Oscar winning actress, but a source close to the couple told Access Hollywood that there’s no engagement on the horizon for the Hollywood power couple.

According to PopEater’s Rob Shuter, Jake is about to surprise Reese with something sparkly and shiny under her Christmas tree.

“Jake is planning to pop the question over the holidays and couldn’t be more excited,” a Pop Eater source claimed.

According to the source, Jake is now part of Reese’s family.

“Her children love him, his family loves her and now it’s time to make it official,” the source continued.

Despite PopEater’s report of a looming engagement, a source close to the couple told Access Hollywood that this report is “not true.”

When contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for Jake was not immediately available for comment.

California has the choice of having a "confidential" marriage, where absolutely no one (outside of getting a court order) knows that a couple is married. The option was also allowed for same-sex marriages, during the time same sex marriage was allowed. It's most likely, if Jake and Austin got legally married in California, that they got a confidential marriage. The only way the record would become public, (besides if they talked about it or by court order) is if they got divorced - the confidentiality is voided. Maybe that's one reason why Gray Goose can't just up and leave TT; a formal divorce would expose their marriage and that they are gay.

Do any other states, especially the ones that offer same-sex marriage, have that option?

5:40, do you mean Chris? He would be my 2nd choice too. He's perfect for the role of Jake's spouse since he's not a celeb, is not public property for the paps, not easily recognized, and can live and move around (especially with a BT) without drawing much attention, unlike Austin.

Finally, some good news for Jimmy Kimmel.

It took the funny man 9 months, but he finally managed to bring in larger numbers than CBS's Craig Ferguson.

Last week marked the first time in almost a year that Kimmel drew in a larger overall audience this season with 1.65 million viewers. And last Thursday, Kimmel even beat out David Letterman among women ages 18-34.

That night Kimmel Jake Gyllenhaal, Ashley Green, and Honor Society. Guess the ladies love themselves some Gyllenhaal.

"New Moon" fans continue to boost the ratings of TV talk-shows, with ABC's Jimmy Kimmel matching season highs aided by visits from Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Last week Kimmel rose to his highest numbers since September's premiere week and tied NBC's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" in the adult demo. Friday's "Twilight"-packed episode with Pattinson, Stewart, Taylor Lautner and DCFC gave Kimmel his most-watched Friday evening in six months.

Anne H. at gala

Stepping out for a swanky evening, Anne Hathaway was spotted at the Friends Without a Border Gala Benefit in Los Angeles last night (December 10). The “Get Smart” hottie looked amazing as she arrived at the Roosevelt Hotel, sporting a short black one-shoulder dress teamed with a pair of silver heels.

In related news, Jake Gyllenhaal recently revealed that he and Anne have been getting up-close and personal while filming their new movie “Love and Other Drugs.”

He revealed, “[I’m] making a movie with Anne Hathaway, and we’ve been having a lot of love scenes in that movie. And we’ve been baring almost all of us… So, that’s not been that bad, either. We were pretty much naked but for a merkin (cover for your junk).”

Perez´s posts on Reese and Jake are too PR transparent as someone said above.
He is so unnecessary condescending and corny when he refers to them, it is not his usual style at all.

And it can´t really be because he likes them because before the fauxmance he used to be merciless with Jake.However,I don´t think he had something against Jake, it is just how Perez runs the site mostly.
Now is like the blog of some Reeke´s fangirl.
I´m not surprised about Perez being bought,tough and i´m not judging him (hey,i would take the money too) but,certainly,that change of "attitude" towards Jake is one more indication that Reeke is a lie operated by some Hollywood PR.

A LOL re California's "confidential" marriages. The reason why they started doing them was for couples who weren't married and had kids together, and then after many years got married. It was so that neighbors, the kids, the parents and general busybodies wouldn't know (via public records and notices) that, horrors! ~ they hadn't been married all those years after all. Confidential marriages cost the same; the only difference is the records are sealed and no one knows it took place (or when, if everyone already thought you were married!). One bad thing about it is if you're dating someone you can't find out via public records if they're married. Even worse, you could marry them in another state and have no clue that they're already married to someone else in California. Only a court order can open the record and sometimes that can be hard to get. If Jake and Austin (or Chris or whoever!) got married confidentially during the period same-sex marriages were legal in California, it's pretty much an airtight deal. Good for them if they did.

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal Xmas Proposal as Real as Santa Claus

There’s a rumor that Jake Gyllenhaal is set to propose to girlfriend Reese Witherspoon come Christmas.

The story has spread all across the globe, partially thanks to Perez Hilton and other hacks.

Perez declared, “Sources are telling us that she may be one lucky lady come Christmas morning as Jake Gyllenhaal maybe ready to propose!”

He went on to write, “Jake feels there is no better way to celebrate this year than to make things official for them! We hear he is very ‘excited’ and that a little tiny box may already be in his possession!”

Perez concluded, “Will she say ‘yes’?! (She’d be a fool not to!)”

Speaking of fools, how does Perez always claim he has “sources,” and yet he still gets so many stories wrong?

But we’re not going to focus on Perez’s lousy blogging. Instead, let’s look at whether Gyllenhaal actually plans to propose.

Perez never fact-checks stories, but Gossip Cop does. We even waited a day with this story until all of our sources got back to us. And guess what?

Perez may have hit the eggnog a little early, because Gyllenhaal doesn’t have a “little tiny box” with a ring in it. More importantly, he’s not proposing on Christmas.

Additionally, a rep for Gyllenhaal told Gossip Cop exclusively that this Christmas tale is “not true.”

Are things moving fast for Renée Zellweger and Bradley Cooper? The lovebirds were spotted checking out houses in LA yesterday. Sources said the Hollywood couple's romance is heating up. One told us, "Until Renée, Bradley had a reputation as a ladies' man and a heartbreaker, but he seems so happy with her. They prefer to stay in rather than hang out at show- business parties, and he has already introduced her to his parents." Cooper has previously been linked to Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz.

Sorry, celebrity-hookup junkies; despite recent suggestions to the contrary, Bradley Cooper is not dating his He's Just Not That Into You co-star Jennifer Aniston.

"I met her three times in my life," Cooper told People magazine on Friday.

Rumor had it that Cooper and Aniston were getting hot and heavy during a recent party for Aniston's latest flick, Management, at Table 8. But Cooper says it just isn't so—somewhat to his own consternation and that of his mother. "I'm very flattered" about the hookup rumors, Cooper notes. "My mom loves it, but unfortunately it's not true."

Dear Ted:
Tiger & Co.—Not Gays—Make Mockery of Marriage. Ted, you're so spot on with this. All this Woods stuff has made me nauseous, too. I used to be quite the religious girl, but it had left me with such a bitter taste of major hypocrisy and irrationality that I passed on it long ago. I think too many citizens of this country still hold onto religious canons with clenched fists while their eyes (and bodies) wander about! I swear it's all these religious men with power that pull all the strings. Cheating family man, no biggie. Women on awards shows making out, no biggie. Gay men kissing—oh no! I'm married with a couple little ones, I consider myself a virtuous person, and thanks to amazing people like yourself and Ellen, I've grown to have a far deeper respect for the gay community. I'll take happy gossip of gay couples over this nasty Woods stuff anyday!
—Kristin

Dear Here, Here:
Glad to hear it, babe, and thanks. That's great you can respect religion enough to think for yourself. More should follow suit.


Dear Ted:
The current times have left me a tad bit down. Alas, my method of escaping from life by living vicariously through the lives of starlets is always thwarted when it's revealed to me that those particular starlets are not the nicest of young ladies. I would rather not waste my precious good vibes on such nasty little bitches. Would you be so kind as to give me a list of nice actresses for me to wish well? My best to you.
—Coffee + Romance Novels

Dear Holiday Spirit:
Anne Hathaway, Rachel McAdams, Natalie Portman for starters. Those are good role models, which means they obviously aren't interesting by starlet standards.


Dear Ted:
I love your blog and am an A.T. addict. Anyway, here's my question: I've lived in WeHo for some time now and am quite aware of most of the "closeted" characters in your Blind Vice section. Some of them aren't so sneaky about their traipses with testosterone, though, and I'm positive have been nabbed by the papz on a number of occasions. Why have they never been shown with their closet concubines in the tabloids then? Are their PR agents just that good? Combine the fact that us gays love to gab and that various "closeted" individuals aren't exactly super sleuths, how have they not been outed yet?
—Lips and Lashes, Crunch Cutie

Dear Welcome to the Neighborhood:
How do you think we get any of our Blind Vice material? We hear the WeHo chatter...but it's a legal nightmare to actually straight out them (no pun intended) as well as getting too invasive even for my taste. Just wish those queens could do it themselves!

Dear Ted:
After your Morning Piss, I wanted to share my experience with gay unions. My father is gay and has been in a committed relationship for over 20 years. I refer to his husband as my stepdad and my children call him their "bonus grandfather". I have learned more from them about being in a committed relationship and a responsible adult than my mother, who is on her 5th husband in 23 years. I dearly pray for the day when Dad and his husband can truly be married as they would like. When I hear people knock gay marriage, I want to scream. Heteros don't have a monopoly on monogamy or commitment to love. In my world, gay is family and normal. And I love it that way!

Dear Foreword Thinker:

Hollywood Bratpack: The boys are back said...

Hollywood's rapidly ageing leading men could finally be in for a quieter life as the answer to every movie-mogul's prayer arrives in the shape of a handsome vampire. Johnny, Brad and George have had a long and richly rewarding run at the box office.

But the holy trinity of Hollywood leading men is really beginning to show its age (Brad Pitt turns 46 on December 18; Johnny Depp is already 46; and George Clooney 48). The major studios are now looking to Robert Pattinson, currently putting a bite into the box office with the latest movie from the Twilight vampire saga, to lead the next generation of bankable heart-throbs.

The 23-year-old English star of New Moon is having a dramatic effect on young women and movie executives alike. Pattinson is being talked up as the leader of the next generation of male stars with the talent and appeal to carry a major movie. Hollywood has been waiting a while. Pretenders to the throne have come and faded away (with the likes of Ethan Hawke, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ewan McGregor and our own Colin Farrell falling just short).

And the studios are now set to jump a generation to the likes of Pattinson and -- possibly -- High School Musical's Zac Efron, young actors who are judged to have the potential to be classic leading men. They certainly have captured the young female market. But it remains to be seen whether the growing legion of bright young things has the acting ability to match their cinematic eye-candy status. Hollywood's holy grail is to find young talent that can emulate established stars such as George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

But they both built their careers slowly and carefully, balancing roles showcasing their good looks with those that highlighted their acting abilities. The danger is that studio bosses rush their bright young hopes and try to cash in while they are still finding their feet. The veteran film critic Barry Norman says there was a danger of young actors being type-cast if they stuck to the teenage "popcorn" genre. "It's an easy route for the young and the pretty, but I don't think necessarily that it is going to be a good springboard to launch a long career," he said.

Zac Efron has made a deliberate move away from musical movies with his next big release, The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud. Based on a popular novel, it sees Efron starring alongside Kim Basinger, playing a man who is devastated by the death of his younger brother. Efron is very aware of the need to stretch himself in more substantial roles -- while not alienating his core audience. "I'm not doing anything to drastically try and change my image," he said recently. But I do need to keep things interesting for myself. And grow up. I still make very family-friendly films. I'm not involved with the next Trainspotting sequel or anything like that." Efron is (unfairly or not) seen as the leader of the pack of young male actors and musicians who appeal to the "tweenie" market. And it's a measure of the power of the tweenie dollar that Efron and the likes of pop stars/actors the Jonas Brothers are being seriously talked up as box office stars.

Hollywood Bratpack: The boys are back said...

With movie-going audiences now heavily skewed towards teens, the Jonas brothers, Transformers star Shia LaBeouf and Pattinson have the kind of earning potential that Hollywood has never seen in actors in their early 20s. Tatiana Siegel, a reporter for Variety who covers castings at the four major film studios in Los Angeles, said British hunk Pattinson was "the most in-demand actor of the generation. Now the trend in Hollywood is not so much to have an actor who carries the movies, but a brand, like Twilight. Robert Pattinson is one of the few actors that the studios can build a movie around."

The sudden craze for all things vampiric has certainly rocketed Pattinson from promising beginnings (one of his first roles was in a Harry Potter movie) to international stardom. His co-star, Taylor Lautner, is also hot property. The 17-year-old piled on 30lbs of muscle for his role as the werewolf Jacob Black in New Moon. He has been quoted as saying he would never take his shirt off on-screen again, but teenage girls breathed a sigh of relief this week when he denied the comment, adding that he would strip off if the role required it. Lautner is still very young but his co-star Pattinson now appears to have the movie world at his feet.

However, he should tread carefully -- his next two or three movies could mean the difference between achieving A-list status or ending up as yet another also-ran.

Possible new love for Reese said...

I have a theory about why or if Reese and Jake have broken up or stopped the contract whatever the relationship may be. I honestly think Reese got really close to Paul Rudd during her last film. She seemed really into him and no I am not a fan girl, I just have this feeling from seeing some of the pics of them together. I know Paul is married but I think Reese wouldn't care. Would she risk her reputation, fake as it may be, no. But Ted has always said that Reese isn't who she claims to be and is very sneaky. Of course I could be completely wrong or reading too much into it, but I can't shake the feeling about her and Paul. Of course Jake says they he and Reese are still together, so I will respect that.

I'm sure Paul Rudd doesn't care about the chin.

Reese is very sneaky, but she isn't charming, isn't pretty, isn't sexy, isn't very bright and isn't 20 anymore.

LOL on the Paul Rudd theory. PR is a total pothead, loves to party and is known to cheat on his nobody wife. According to Reese has been down that road and is looking for someone grounded, family oriented, etc. Someone like Jakey G. Of course maybe she could rework Rudd's actual personality like she did with Jake's and pretend he's the perfect man. And she can drag him all over the world while her low life ex actually raises and cares for her children AKA her number one priority.

Making History said...

Houston, Texas (CNN) -- Annise Parker made history Saturday as Houston's first openly gay mayor.

Parker, who served five years as city controller, beat former city attorney Gene Locke with 53.6 percent of the vote in a runoff election.

Both are Democrats who faced off for the second time because neither emerged with more than 50 percent of the vote in the November 3 election.

Parker's election also makes her the second woman to become mayor of Houston. Other cities such as Providence, Rhode Island, and Portland, Oregon, have picked openly gay mayors. Houston is the fourth-largest U.S. city.

Parker's victory is also remarkable because a few years ago, Houston rejected a referendum to offer benefits to same-sex partners of city workers. Also, the city sits in a state where gay marriage is against the law.

"Houston is a multiracial, multicultural, international city. And I think my election will send a message to the world that Houston is a city that might surprise a lot of folks," Parker said before the runoff.

Parker, 53, has never shied away from, nor made an issue of, her sexual orientation. She has been with her partner for 19 years and they have two adopted children.

She was elected to the city council and then spent the past five years as city controller. She ran for mayor on a platform of fiscal conservatism.

"I have always stood up for the fact that I am gay. It's part of the resume that I bring to the table, but it's just a piece of the package," she said.

After the mayoral race entered a runoff, conservatives and anti-gay activists mounted an intense campaign against Parker. Houston residents received flyers in the mail that highlighted Parker's support from gay groups and her relationship with her partner.

"There's a certain segment of Houston, there's a certain segment of society that has problems with the issues around sexual orientation," Parker said. "But the citizens of Houston have elected me six consecutive times to public office. They know me, they trust me.

"I think it's a small and shrinking minority of Houstonians who have that attitude and I look forward to it as being mayor of all of Houston," she said.

Turnout was light Saturday. Only 16.4 percent of the eligible voters cast ballots, according to the results from Harris County, Texas, where Houston is located. Locke received 46.4 percent of the vote.

Parker will take office in January, replacing Bill White who could not run because of term limits.

After watching "Brothers" interviews I think Jake is boyish, dorky and cool. It is easy for him to be relaxed with Tobey, Nat and interviewer, but it's something else to do that as Disney employee in front of 500(?) people and TV cameras.

Facial peels at some spa, plus make up=vanity. He isn't aging well, w/o that he looks a lot older. When he looks "youthful" it's make-up and peels.

Look at his fug sister who w/o lighting and make up looks 40.

Please, if I had money I would be going for monthly facials.

He has done several movies where he has been in the sun a lot. It damages skin. He works in a business where he needs to take care of that. I bet it is a business deduction.

You have to wear makeup under the lights. If people see him on the street wearing foundation, then I'll worry.

The surrealistic dream imagery and possible drug dosing imagery is some of the most inspired, beautiful, haunting imagery from Scorsese’s entire career. This is a triumph of filmmaking. Oh – one last thing. Michelle Williams kills in her part. LOVE HER.

Re. Leo and Scorsese. While I like Leo as an actor, I agree that he's lucky to work with such a talent like Scorsese. I think it's safe to say that Scorsese saved Leo's career. After Titanic the boy delivered flop after flop and add to that his personal escapades.

I think Jake needs to find a good director with whom he'd work regularly. Maybe Fincher? He's still working with Pitt, but Pitt won't get any younger.
Depp is working with Burton and this work relationship probably won't break anytime soon.
Heath chose to work with Gilliam who didn't deliver a critical or b.o. hit in a decade. With his talent Heath would have deserved to work with a much better director. Oh well.

I'm still hoping Jake and Fincher will work together again.
