Feels So Good That It Can’t Be Wrong

Ricky Martin Ricky Martin, "Me" book signing, November 2010


There is something beautiful in witnessing a major celebrity in the throes of profound and real transformation. A week before we meet, Ricky Martin had made a surprise appearance at the annual Human Rights Campaign national dinner to pledge his support. “Something as simple as standing at that dinner and saying, ‘I’m gay,’ creates so may emotions I’ve never felt before,” he admits. “I didn’t do it earlier because of fear, and, bottom line, it was all in my head. I was seduced by fear, and I was sabotaging most of my life -- my music, my relationships with my friends, with my family, with everybody. That’s something I need to share because I know that a lot of people are going through what I went through, no matter what their age, and fear cannot control us.”

Ricky Martin is about to share big time -- with his new memoir, Me, a remarkably heartfelt account of his journey from teen group Menudo to fatherhood, delivered in a frank, conversational style that doesn’t economize on the truth. It includes accounts of his first passionate affairs -- with men and with women -- as well as his struggle to reconcile his conflicted yearnings with his rapid ascent in America. The pivotal year is 1999, at which Martin performed his World Cup anthem, “La Copa de la Vida,” at the Grammys. Largely unknown in the United States beyond Hispanic audiences, he left the stage as a breathless Rosie O’Donnell (the evening’s host) exclaimed, “Who was that cutie patootie?”

It was connecting the dots that led directly to Martin’s tweet last March. In his memoir, he recounts how friends and colleagues remonstrated with him to hold off: “I ignored all their recommendations, and by the end, when they came to me with the argument that I shouldn’t do it during Easter because it might offend my Christian fans, I said: ‘What part of ‘I can’t take it any more’ do you not understand? What about me?’”

Above all, he says he worried about Matteo and Valentino having to answer for their father’s untruths. How would they respond as they grew older? Would they have to lie on his behalf? “How could I teach my kids to lie?” he asks. “How could I teach them not to be themselves?” And, as simple as that, he realized he couldn’t and wouldn’t. “My children will grow up with no prejudice,” he says. “As parents, we need to create a new way of thinking for our kids, in which we accept, and we love, and we can vibe with everybody.”

On cue, it seems, the boys awake from their afternoon nap and are brought downstairs to daddy. Martin has a small retinue of loyal and longtime staff, more like family, and they start clucking and fussing over the kids, amusing them with clown faces as they run around the lawn grabbing at flowers to present to the adults, tokens of their affection. Martin laughs as they stumble in their haste and launches into a proud-father monologue, detailing their quirks and foibles: how Valentino insists on eating with his hands, covering his face with pasta; how he jokes that Matteo is “half Puerto Rican and half Chinese” because of his overweening fondness for rice.

Who thinks Jake is a good actor and/or likes him as an actor? I know most seem to be interested in his private life, but I'm curious.

I know I like watching him, but I think he could give more if he wanted to.

Excellent post, Jackie. Bravo, Ricky! What a beautiful man, inside and out. Shame on those "friends" who worried about what the so-called Christian fans would think more than they worried about Ricky's state of mind and his ability to lead an honest life as a gay man and as a father who is able to be a role model to his beautiful boys.

Who thinks Jake is a good actor and/or likes him as an actor?

I think Jake is absolutely a good actor. I don't think I've ever seen him give a bad performance, and something I appreciate about his acting is that he does not chew the scenery. I even loved him in Bubble Boy, where I thought he handled the wacky, over-the-top tone of the movie really well and gave the movie (which I like) a genuine sweetness and charm. I think his performance in BBM was outstanding and demonstrated his potential. Having said that, I probably wouldn't rate him as one of the greatest actors I've ever seen. I'm not sure why. For me, the truly great actors have a way of "becoming" their characters instead of "acting." Maybe it's one of those elusive things that you either have or you don't.

It's not really that I'm interested in his private life - I just wish he wouldn't play this phony bearding game with the public that I find offensive. I would understand it if he never answered a question about his "private" life and kept it to himself, like Quinto, for example. But I can't give him a pass on the fauxmance crap.

He's a good actor to his old fans before he became known for who he dates. His dating habits have overshadowed his acting career. And that is hard to overcome if you keep doing it over and over again no matter how many "no comments" are thrown out there. Even Brad and Angelina are known secondarily as actors even with their mulitple awards nominations/wins.

Pedro Julio, who works at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and was the founder of the LGBT-rights organization Puerto Rico Para Tod@s, was recognized for his amazing work last night at the New York City Hilton Hotel by Comité Noviembre. Ricky Martin was supposed to present the award live but when it became apparent he would not be able to make it, he sent the video message to be presented during the ceremony.

Naomi has not been pictured with Taylor. There was one twitter rumor but it turned out Jake and Taylor were each in different states at the time. Neither was even in NY. Wishful thinking one someones part.

Ted was awful quick to give out all the sleazy details about that attempted hookup. And not a confidentiality agreement in sight. Thats what lust and horniness leads to. Still he did not have to give out all those details. Was it Teds way of doing Jake a favor and making Taylor go away.

I think Jake is a decent actor. Not great. Not bad. He has yet to do a role that is his and only his. One that you look at and go nobody else could have done that. Like Heath as the Joker. Heath made the Joker and became the Joker. Whether Jake can do that remains to be seen. It did not happen in POP. He looked downright laughable as the Prince. He comes close as Jack Twist but that seems more the result of Ang Lee than Jake himself. He certainly needs to grow up emotionally before he can pull it off. How does the saying go. You cant love someone until you love yourself. Same thing with acting. You cant lose yourself until you know who you are to begin with.

Anonymous said...

Correct for an actor to be good he has to know himself very well. To portray a part one has to leave him or herself and become that character. I think Jake is afraid to do that because he wouldn't reckonize his ownself to get back into.

I didn't hear about Jake introducing Tay Tay to his mom, I thought it was Jake hanging out backstage with Taylor's mom while she filmed a special.

And wasn't it lame Lainey who wrote about Jake "already" introducing his mom to Isabel in Canada. I am beginning to think these tweets are Jake and Taylor fans who are in complete already planning a wedding and the babies.

Tay Tay is riding awfully high right now, just right for someone to knock her off her virginal pedstal.

What part of ‘I can’t take it any more’ do you not understand? What about me?’”

So sad, and good for Ricky for pushing back against those around him. I wish Jake would do the same, but he doesn't seem to have the spine to do it. I agree that his mom might be part of the problem, she certainly supported Reeke. She also seems to keep close tabs on her children's careers--I saw her in the audience when I saw Maggie and Peter in that play last year, taking notes, and she was in the audience for the New Yorker event. Plus his mom is good friends with Jake's publicist--need I say more.

Well apparently that must had been Jake's twin at the airport because someone (hmmm let's see Taylor's PR people) are saying Jake was backstage waiting for her while she performed at an awards show in Great Britain which was going either at the same time or after the report of Jake at the airport.

I think Jake is a very good actor, but I don't think he is A-list material, I just don't think he has what it takes to carry big mainstream movies, like POP or other big action movies, like Unstoppable, which Chris Pine is in and getting some good reviews for his screen presence, or some of the "big" prestige films, like some of the things Leo does.

Could he get there? Maybe, but he's not going to with his current lack of confidence and somewhat immature presence when marketing films--he should be making people swoon because of he is sexy, mature, knows how to carry himself--not slouching, making them giggle and listen to his hundredth story about his sister.

Jake smoldered not only in BBM, but in BBM promotion.

In Jake's defense, I can't see Chris Pine as Jack Twist or Donnie Darko. Chris is not A list yet, Jake is because of those iconic roles. Chris Pine also had Star Trek with a built in fanbase with 6-7 movies already in the series. It was also the director of the Star Trek behind its success. Unstoppable has Denzel Washington, Chris Pine could not carry that movie with a less unknown co-star. Stop comparing Jake to Chris Pine and Sam Worthington who basically have only had success in action movies with alot special effects. Yes action movies bring in the money but once you are type cast as an action star, you are pretty much stucked in HW.

And Chris Pine, please he was dumb enough to star with Reese W in a romantic comedy about two men fighting over her, both are 10x hotter than she.

At least he wasn't dumb enough to star in a 3 year fauxmance with her.

I think the jury is out as to whether Chris can be a leading man, but he is certainly doing well in the buddy film dept., and, like I said above, I was just pointing out that some reviews have said he has a lot of movie-star charisma that has added to their enjoyment of the film.

And don't kid yourself, people like Pine are getting movie projects left and right, and he's working on stage too, which helps build acting skills. You think Jake wouldn't love to have all those offers rolling in?

But ultimately my point was just that every actor has their strengths and weaknesses, and that they should take that into consideration if they want a successful career.

I also think it is a problem that Jake doesn't seem capable of marketing himself in a way that makes people pay attention and want to see him in a film. It's the ability to bring in those extra fans, just beyond those there for the story, that makes someone a star.

Two things, the AMAs are next week and Jake will be back in LA later on in the week. Expect Taylor/Jake outings and maybe just maybe Jake will show as Tay Tay's escort to the awards show. I bet it will happen because it never happened with Reese, so the game has to be upped a bit. Then there are the after parties in LA and Jake and Taylor will be on the high alert with the paps. It wouldn't surprised me if they spent the holiday together sunce Jake's family seems to be out of the country or in different places. But it does seem all to convienent.

Secondly, the big pic behind Ricky, I assume that is him but the eyes and nose remind me of Zachary Quinto.

She doesnt need Jake or anyone else to escort her anywhere.

From reports, she has a place in NY and L.A. but lives in Nashville, and she mostly stays there.

Paps don't hang in Nashville so Jake has no reason to go there.

Natalie Portman bored by beauty

The 'Black Swan' actress hates being judged on her looks and can't understand why some people, particularly guys, become so obsessed with their appearance.

She said: "Beauty can be a hindrance, especially if that's the only thing that matters to other people. I'm also aware that being considered attractive can be a huge factor in getting work in my profession.

"Beauty can be boring if you're with a guy who is focussed on his looks or your looks all the time.

"I know a lot of male actors who are totally obsessed with creating a certain look."

Though Natalie, 29, doesn't understand the fascination with looking good, she appreciates a man with confidence in themselves.

The actress - who is dating dancer Benjamin Millepied - added: "I appreciate men who are confident in their masculinity, who don't need to work out every day, don't fuss about their appearance. I prefer men who know what they want out of life."

On his own its tshirts jeans running shoes or shoes that hes had for years. The idea of him spending money on any woman just doesnt fit. So far he spent $3.00 apple picking and a couple bucks for ice cream. That is more like it.

Broke-bank Mountain

JAKE GYLLENHAAL hasn't been wooing TAYLOR SWIFT with £9.99 garage bouquets and trips to Pizza Express.

Brokeback Mountain actor Jake spent £100,000 whisking country singer Taylor from America to the UK on a private jet.

She flew in to Luton on Friday and then the stars locked themselves away until yesterday in Jake's London hotel suite at The Dorchester.

That's got to be be one of the most expensive booty calls ever.

Jake was in town promoting his new comedy flick Love And Other Drugs.

Taylor had been due in the capital yesterday to play the first ever Radio 1 Teen Awards, at the Hammersmith Apollo. But she jetted in early just to see Jake.

A source said: "Jake wanted some quality time with Taylor. If he hadn't done this, they would have missed each other as he had to fly back to the States. He hired a jet which would easily have set him back £100,000."

That's a mega-gesture between pals who claim they are just "hanging out".

After swapping numbers a few months ago they've been in constant contact. They spent a couple of days in Big Sur, California, a few weeks ago, and went apple-picking near New York before that.

The pair have dated a fair chunk of the rich and famous over the years.

Taylor went out with serial-playboy singer JOHN MAYER, singer JOE JONAS and Twilight actor TAYLOR LAUTNER.

Jake's conquests include movie stars KIRSTEN DUNST, NATALIE PORTMAN, REESE WITHERSPOON and ISABEL LUCAS.

Which may be why Taylor was guarded at the awards about their relationship - in case she's just another notch.

Whatever does happen, we're sure to hear all about it in Taylor's next album.

The Sun

About the Teen Awards:

...US country star Taylor Swift jetted in to join JLS, The Wanted and Professor Green on the performers’ bill.

However, fans were desperate to catch a glimpse of her new man, Jake Gyllenhaal, after a rumour spread the A-lister was backstage.

While Swift was keeping her famous fella in the closet, singer Ellie Goulding was happy to show off her romance with one of the station’s radio hosts, Greg James, putting on a kissy show at the backstage bar.

I'm betting if there's a bearding contract between Jake and Taylor Swift it includes having a song about Jake on a new album: a song that implies what a woman-lover he is and how he broke her heart by cheating on her with other girls (or lol, strippers). Of course the song can't be too obvious: it will be rich in mysterious meaningful lyrics and have everyone interested in who it's about but it won't be that hard for the public to figure it out. What better way to embed a straight image than in a lovelorn song.

Chances for People's Sexiest Man Alive 2010:

Jake Gyllenhaal

Arguments for:
- He’s adorable. (I’m biased, obviously.) But those eyes, and that smile, and the body... it’s all goodness and very American.
- He’s selling a movie right now. A movie that supposed to be a crowd pleaser. A movie that will prove to you when you see it that he is indeed a romantic leading man.
- He’s dating America’s sweetheart. He wants this too. Leveraging the relationship to sell the movie AND to secure this title?
- He’s is accessible and sweet, a solid reputation, has never been tarnished by scandal
- Movie Star presence and personality. Have you seen him in an interview? They’re eating out of his hand.

Arguments against:
- Too boyish?
- Prince of Persia was a disappointment in America. He’s yet to prove that he can actually live up to expectation. Love & Other Drugs may finally be his huge breakthrough but at press time “bankability” is not on Jake’s resume
- The gay rumours
- A steady stream of golden girlfriends but nothing to suggest stability, it may be offputting to the MiniVan
- Is Jake Gyllenhaal a Capital Letter celebrity? Enough of one to merit the 25th anniversary SMA? I’m all over it, but even I don’t think he’s quite there yet.

I find it distasteful that his PR is planting articles using money and big spending as a way of trying to make him sound "manly" and "powerful". It's tacky. She is in Forbes' 10 top-earning women with 45 million in the past 12 months. It’s more plausible that she was the one who bought Jake the private plane ride!

I think this bearding will be a two year contract. It’s great publicity for both parts. They will sell a fairytale romance via tabloids, the perfect prince and princess publicity. And the deal must be that in the end she will write not only a song, but her whole new album will be about Jake to reinforce how straight he is and how “real” their relationship was.

I read on the BoxOfficeMojo forum that from the movies that come out on Nov 24, Tangled, Faster and Burlesque are gaining momentum and buzz but not LAOD. With the competition and movies holdings from previous weeks (Harry Potter, Megamind, Unstoppable, 127 hours, etc), they predict a sixth or seventh place for LAOD during Thanksgiving weekend.

I kinda wonder if private jet is how he goes if he goes with BT. Yes I believe there's a BT and I don't care if you don't, so no arguments or insults, please.

I have a sibling who used to do those Life Flight Organ donations and the planes (Lear jets actually) use smaller private airports like Van Nuys, Burbank, Long Beach, etc., rarely LAX and he said it's at those where you see the celebs who don't want to be seen, use private jets. They don't hang out in a lobby, they wait in the plane's hangar. So I wouldn't be surprised if Jake on rare occasions of traveling with BT, goes that way. Of course BT still wouldn't be "open" knowledge amongst crew, etc., but there would be a lot less scrutiny of the companions than being at LAX with them in public.

BoxOffice.com is predicting a 12 million opening weekend and 40 million total domestic run for LAOD. It’s a very average performance for a movie like this.

Does anyone remember how accurate their prediction was for PoP? Or does anyone know how accurate they are in general?

Oh goodness, I just had a terrible thought. What if Jake is really straight and he's just really dumb.

How else would you explain his last two choices in women? I also felt he tries too hard in print interviews to sound intelligent. I think being Maggie's little brother has certainly fucked him up alot. He has said that he felt she was the favorite of the family and maybe he's over compensating.

Jake has tanked his career, I apologized to Destiny.

Maybe Jakey does not want to spend his 30th birthday without a famous blonde to fawn over him.

It just too perfect, they both have milestone birthdays coming up. She will be 21 and can drink in public. I can see it now, they celebrated their birthdays together in Italy, because the trip with Reese didn't feel right to Jake. So this way he can truly experience it with someone new and at his maturity level.

Even his straight fan boards are jumping the Jake ship. Although some say they don't care about his personal life, they are quick to point out that the Sun is a "trash" newspaper. So I think they are bothered by Tay Tay. Its seems only her fans are ok with it because Jake helps her repuation which was bordering on slutty.

No doubt they are bothered by Tay Tay :) It shatters so many of the illusions they have about Jake. The only 30 year old man who would be seriously interested in that girl and her princess act would be a 30 year old virgin desperate to get laid, or a loser interested in her money. Rich, handsome, eligible guys like Jake wouldn't give her a second look. She doesn't have a fanbase of guys of any age who think she's "hot" - her fanbase is teen-age girls and prissy 20-somethings who fall for her act. I was at a gathering this weekend and purposely brought her name up to some guys in their early 20s. They laughed at the idea that she was someone they would go out with (they were surprised she was 20, thought she was in her teens still) and said they would be embarrassed that someone would think they'd listen to her music.

Dear Goose on the Loose:
G2 has been playing it (impossibly) low-key with his bearded lover lately. Nothing unusually interesting with him and Toothy either, since T2 is up to his awful antics around town. I'm much more interested in your love story saga, no matter how sad it ends.


Dear Ted:
Instead of "Jaylor," how about "Swyllenhaal"? The latter nickname rolls off the tongue nicely, makes me chuckle and of course, leaves no doubt who the celebs are! Thanks.
—Oyce

Dear Name Game:
Ick, can we just not give them a name at all? Though, I don't mind Swyllenhaal—bizarro but I guess it does kind of roll of the tongue. Maybe. Plus, I guess "Jaylor" is officially Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene.

You know I used to buy that crap from all celebrities not just Jake but when you hook up with another famous person who is high on paps radar, in my opinion you are asking for the intrusion on your personal life. You can not tell me Jake can not attract a beautiful blonde who is not famous. No he picks the blondes who are not only more famous than he but are less better looking than him.

So sad Destiny. If Jake doesn't change his game plan soon he will have no career. It's getting very close. This has been one awful year for the guy. I really believe he thinks there is no other way. He is so convinced that the gay rumors are ruining his career. Between PoP and now LAOD falling off the super hit map Jake has big problems. I like to see Jake work with some older actors and take a back seat for a while instead of desperately wanting to be the straight leading man. Jake is not a patient man and al;so not a very samrt one, so it seems.

Other then the article in the SUN there is no evidence that Jake and Taylor even saw each other in London. No Tweet, picture- nothing.

In this case he and/or his people have obviously got a grip before it is too late. I could be wrong but I think this story will die down.

I would be more concerned about the BO of LAOD. If the trackings are correct it does not look good.
It would not be so bad if the film would be getting overall good reviews, but this is also not the case.

Source Coed is getting some good buzz but only because of Duncan Jones....and he seems not even to be interested in the film.

And when it comes to new, interesting roles Jakes name is nowhere to be seen.

This is the talking point that UV preaches all the time as an excuse that PoP was not a success: b/c Jake was the bottom in BBM. What b.s. PoP was unsuccessful because it was a mediocre video game film with cliche dialogue and subpar directing. Not awful, but nothing special. Most of the negative reviews had nothing at all to do with Jake or his performance. What really kills me is that Babblers didn't go see PoP because they thought it would be a good movie, they went only to see Jake. But they insist that other people stayed away because he was in it, not because the movie didn't interest them.

I think many men like blondes, because they represent cleanliness and innocence. During my elementary school and high school time the most popular girls in the class were blue eyed light blondes.

Good luck at that one. How the hell can you play a part when your constantly worried about being seen as straight. Double age sword. No wonder the guy is flopping a the box office. He needs to worry about being happy with himself and not trying to be something he is not. Then he will be able to act. Try it Jake.

Jake apparently is rolling in the bucks from the Daily Telegraph:

Maybe he did send her the private jet because no one is disputing the story from either camp, and this is bad publicity in today's economy. Especially for a "liberal people caring" person Jake is always trying to convey to people. Its now up to $165,000 american dollars.

Jake Gyllenhaal Is On ‘Cloud Nine’ With Taylor Swift — They Are Doing The Holidays Together! EXCLUSIVE!

The romance between one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men and the music industry’s little darling is heating up. And we’ve got the goods on their holiday plans…in Paris!

Jake Gyllenhaal has finally moved on from his devastating break up with Reese Witherspoon, and two insiders tell us he’s completely head over heels for his new love, country superstar Taylor Swift!
“Everyone is happy for Jake. He finally came out of his rut. He took the breakup with Reese very hard and it’s taken him a long time to get over it,” a source tells us exclusively. “He dated in between, but no one has put a smile on his face like Taylor. He’s really on cloud nine. He’s a changed person. No one has struck his heart like Taylor.”

Our insider also tells us that Taylor’s favorite time of year will be better than ever thanks to her new beau. “The two are already planning to spend the holidays together. And Jake plans to meet Taylor in Paris at the beginning of the new year, where she’ll be performing.” A rendezvous in Paris? Ooh la la!

Another source tells us Jake has his sister to thank for his newfound happiness. Apparently, she’s the one who played matchmaker! It only took one meeting between Maggie Gyllenhaal and 20-year-old Taylor for an idea to form in her head.

“Maggie introduced Jake to Taylor. Maggie and Taylor met at a charity event. Maggie thought Taylor was such a sweet girl with a good head on her shoulders. She seemed very down to earth and not at all spoiled or seemed like fame had gone to her head,” a source tells Hollywoodlife.com. “She seemed extremely grounded and very mature for her age. So, Maggie thought she’d be a great match for her brother.”

Looks like sis was right on with her instincts, because our source says that 29-year-old Jake is “so happy” with Ms. Swift. “They are really perfect for each other. He’s in awe of her.”

This isn’t the first time Maggie set up her brother, either. She introduced him to Kirstin Dunst, who Jake dated for 2 years before he dated Reese. And while it took Jake awhile to get over his last love, our source tells us he is finally moving on…and he’s moving on with Taylor.

And the “Mine” singer can stop worrying about penning another song like “Dear John” should things with Jake go south.

“He’s not like the other men Taylor has dated. Jake is no John Mayer,” our source insists. “He’s a very sweet and sensitive guy. He treats women with respect.”

Do YOU think Jake and Taylor are in it for the long haul?

- Yes! I think they are a perfect match. 47.16%
- No way. It won't last. 33.11%
- Not sure... 19.73%
