Happy Birthday Jake Gyllenhaal!

Honesty has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it. No ulterior motives. No hidden meanings. An absence of hypocrisy, duplicity, political games, and verbal superficiality. As honesty and real integrity characterize our lives, there will be no need to manipulate others.

- Chuck Swindoll

The Best Is Yet To Come said...

Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum
You came along and everything's startin' to hum
Still, it's a real good bet, the best is yet to come

Best is yet to come and babe, won't that be fine?
You think you've seen the Sun, but you ain't seen it shine...

Did Franco already earn a degree? B.A.? M.A.?
According to this, he received his MFA from Columbia, completed his undergraduate degree at UCLA, studied film at NYU, and was enrolling in Yale's English Ph.D. program

I’m sure he is thrilled that Reese’s movie is in 8th place and is going to make about 7 million this weekend. They will never recover the 150 million cost.

No matter what you think of their real/fake relationship, it ended badly and I’m sure it makes him happy. I bet we will get pictures of Jake smiling. If I was him I would make sure to be papped very happy.

I know many don't believe him, but Franco said he hasn't smoked marihuana since High School. And the reason why he sometimes looks high, is because he's exhausted from stuying and working. Would make sense.

The reviews by critics and audiences have been mixed, the film's also R rated. I can't say that its b.o. surprises me.
I fear that SC will be even worse. That movie looks so bad. I hope Duncan Jones wasn't just a one hit wonder with "Moon". Everything about SC looks very amateurish to me. :(

I'm not 4:09PM, but I thought Jake was good in LAOD. Anne was good, too. I wouldn't go so far as to call their performances award worthy, though. Didn't care for the movie, but they were probably the best thing about it.

Bad news said...

Composer Clint Mansell who was supposed to score Source Code will not be doing it anymore, because of sceduling issues. Instead an unknown composer will do it.
Mansell did the score for The Wrestler, Black Swan and Moon among other great movies.

The new composer for Source Code is Chris Bacon. He did a lot of assisting in good movies, but the movies where he actually did all the score work alone, are all rated BADLY.

I would not only feel bad for Jake if Source Code ended up being a complete disaster, also for Jones who agreed to do Source Code after Jake persuaded him.

If a movie is a big hit and the critics love it, then, sure, your chances of an Oscar nom increase. But idk about Anne being "screwed over." She was good, but there were a lot of great performances by female actors this year, so the competition is especially tough when you have to choose only five. It's hard to compare Oscars to Satellites and GGs which get divided into drama/comedy categories.

I'll just say Sandy Bullock in The Blind Side. A solid movie with a solid performance by Sandy. Not Oscar worthy imo. She still got a nod and a win, because the reviews were mostly positive and because it was a b.o. hit.

Okay. IA that a good reviews and b.o. make it easier to get a nom and a win. But that doesn't mean Anne is getting "screwed over" if she doesn't get an Oscar nom. There are other factors involved, as 7:57 pointed out.

Not that I care, but Reeses bomb could not happen to a more worthy person. Disagree about the Beiber and Gomez pics. They capture two teens being shy and look age appropriate. Big difference from those pictures of Jake with Swift. When he was "dating" Reese, the age difference made her look older than she was. Seeing Jake with Swift has the exact opposite effect. It makes him look 10 years older than he is. Like he is walking with his daughter.

Dear Costar Coupling:
I would totally approve of this, F. Both Selena and Cory are super sweet (and well-behaved), and I could see this working. The age difference might be a little much right now though. Didn't you know Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift are the only ones who can do it?

That depends on what YOU call a flop. One person flop may be another persons masterpiece. The other side is, Some actors with great performances is BO hits don't even get mentioned.

James Franco: Rebel with an Oscar Hosting Gig said...

James Franco tells EW why he's hosting the Academy Awards:

“When [producer Bruce Cohen] asked me to host, I was very, very surprised, and my initial reaction was ‘No.’ Then I thought about it and I thought, well, why not? Because I’ll look bad? Well, I don’t care....When we finally met and discussed it in person, all my representatives were saying, ‘No! Of course not!’ So that always sparks something in me. So I said, ‘Yes, of course!’ Because that reaction that they have is based on conventional wisdom of what makes a good career. And that can be boring — really boring.”

"Needs another great performance?? Says Who?"

Believe it or not but there are fans who thought that Jake has a great career ahead and who were interested in his future work (not just whom he is fucking - sorry Jackie!)

I understand that "Rendition" or "Brothers" looked good on script but Jake did nothing to make his roles special. I did not see any great acting since BBM - always good looking actor Jake. He never disappeared in one of those roles.

"Because that reaction that they have is based on conventional wisdom of what makes a good career. And that can be boring — really boring.”

And that is the difference between actors like James Franco and Jake - Jake has become conventional and his latest roles are boring and for me that is the worst thing for an actor. Not everything Franco does is great - but he tries new ways and is fearless.

And don´t get me started on the fact that Jake is now more famous for his "girlfriends" than his films.....

Best & Worst of 2010

Written by Sarah
(Lainey intro: I asked Sarah for her thoughts on the best and worst in our ongoing Year in Review feature. Obviously I vehemently disagree with Jake Gyllenhaal, even though Prince of Persia totally sucked. As you know, I don’t mind Swifty and Jakey as much as the rest of you.)

THE WORST

Jake Gyllenhaal
It’s been a tough year for Jake G. He’s had two highly-touted movies, Prince of Persia and Love and Other Drugs, both of which failed to live up to expectations. Though Love and Other Drugs did get Jake a Golden Globe nomination, I’m not sure how seriously I’m supposed to take that in a year when Jennifer Love Hewitt also received a nod. And finally, Jake’s quiver-killing relationship with Taylor Swift is a weird, uncomfortable note to end the year on.

You are slipping, there were tweets of Jake un NY Friday and Saturday, one was posted here that he was at some restauraunt with Michelle and Maggie. I don't know if there were any yesterday on his b'day, I bet he stayed indoors, b'day with family in Brooklyn als, he made that stupid joke about swimming in the Artic qith walruses on his b 'day and he obviously didn't go because there are tweets of him today in NY.

I guess his PR can say he took as 9 hr flight to the artic on Sunday and came back in 24 hrs, LOL!

Surprised that we didn't get any pics or even tweets on Jake at all this weekend.

There were several over the weekend, on Saturday AND Sunday.

PoP wasn't that bad. I watched it with different people, among them straight guys, who thought it was entertaining. Just because people from the US didn't like it, doesn't mean it sucked generally. Inl. B.O. wasn't bad either.

Lainey is an idiot.

Btw. LAOD is no. 3 in Australian B.O.

If LAOD pulls a PoP and does much better outside of the US, then it's really clear: US Americans don't like Jake G.

Source Code - Eric Forman (from That 70ies Show...forgot his real name) was supposed to play Jake's part, but then it was decided Jake should play the part. Jake and the former director supposedly had different opinions about the film, so production people and Jake asked DJ to direct the movie.

Needs another great performance

It's not so easy. For your good/great performance to be recognized the movie must be good and liked too.
You don't get parts like in Black Swan of 127 Hours that easily.
Natalie had many, many shitty movies since Closer, now she hit the jack pot with BS. But different than Jake, she works non stop and gives her all. Hence she came across BS more quick than Jake would have with his rather lazy working habit. Franco has had 2 GREAT years. If he's lucky, he'll pull a DiCaprio and continously land hits, critical or commercial. Not even the best actor of our generation, Depp, can manage that. :)

Thanks. It's probably safe to say that family Gyllenhaal & Sarsgaard will be spending Christmas with the Swifts. Jake will probably soon be there too. He's still in N.Y. right now, probably he has some other obligations before he can head to Nashville.

I wonder if Matilda's grandparents will come to New York? I remember last year after Christmas, Heath's mom came to visit M & M and Michelle disappeard for a long while after Mrs. Bell left New York. I hope everything is alright between Ledgers & Michelle.

Most likely Michelle will spend Christmas with her mom and sister (and her hubby). Probably not with her dad, since she hasn't spoken to him for years.

It's amazing how fast James Franco became so big. His cool sounding name has "icon" written all over it as well.

I'm really, really curious about his upcoming projects and promoting "Your Highness" with Natalie. I wonder what she thinks about him? I bet she likes him. I mean, he's one of the very few young male (and talented!!!) actors who is an academic. Sort of on her level.

Jake was in NYC during weekend and still is, according to the newest tweets.

Anonymous said...

And don´t get me started on the fact that Jake is now more famous for his "girlfriends" than his films.....

If it doesn't bother him being more famous for his female companions than his movies, why should it bother us? It's his business. If that's his main goal in life. So be it. There are other actors I'm equally, maybe even more, interested in than Jake. I'm just really used to following Jake. Guess I can't quit him...yet.

Thanks 8:33 but one tweet does not "several" make. Also you say "Jake was in NYC during weekend and still is, according to the newest tweets." Obviously you are following tweets. But not posting them. LOL yeah, thanks.

I saw the trailer for "Your Highness" and I hate to sound like a silly James fangirl (and Natalie fangirl) BUT it looks hilarious. Really friggin funny. I am predicting a hit for James, Natalie and that other actor who's in it whose name eludes me. He's very funny in the trailer.

"Thanks. It's probably safe to say that family Gyllenhaal & Sarsgaard will be spending Christmas with the Swifts. Jake will probably soon be there too. He's still in N.Y. right now, probably he has some other obligations before he can head to Nashville."

Even if I thought Jake was straight and actually dating Swift, I would still find the pairing odd and not believable for many reasons. First, they are such a random couple with seemingly nothing in common. Second, while 9 years isn't a huge age difference (my parents had a 17 year gap), she acts like 21 going on 16 and Jake is 30 going on 40. Third, they supposedly only knew each other for 4 or 5 weeks by Thanksgiving and she spends the day with his entire family and then he takes off to spend the rest of the weekend with her. But yet their previous outings were with groups of people including Swift's mother. Fourth, it would be just weird if Jake's family all went down to Nashville to spend Christmas with Swift's family. They will have supposedly known each other for 2 months and Jake and his entire family is going to fly to Nashville and spend Christmas with a bunch of strangers? The above reasons just reinforce to me that the entire "romance" is a PR romance.

Jakes mom is Jewish. His sister just celebrated Hannakah. I doubt they are interested in celebrating XMAS with a family they barely know. They did XMAS when Papa was around but he has his own new life now.

The Achs (Naomi) in Brooklyn/LES are not really religious Jews so I was surprised to read from maggie that they were lighting candles for Hanakkah.

I was under the impression that Jake, Maggie and Papa were Buddihst but that probably changed as they got older, and especially Maggie with the birth of her daughter, I bet there is a Christmas tree at home.

I'm an atheist but I have a Christmas tree and I celebrate Christmas. For me it is about my family's and my nation's past and tradition, not religion.

Sigourney Weaver appeared on CNN's American Morning yesterday to talk about her role as Mary Griffith, the real-life mother of a bullied gay teen, whom she portrayed in Prayers for Bobby, which is now out on DVD.

The issue of bullied gay teens clearly resonates with Weaver, who choked up talking about the role. She also talks about lgbt civil rights and 'DADT' briefly at the end of the clip.

Taylor Swift Gets a $100K B-Day Bracelet from Jake G: So Is This Really for Real?

We’ve been skeptical, but if Jake really did buy Taylor a $100,000 diamond bracelet, it might really be a romance!
It might be time to reconsider the Taylor Swift-Jake Gyllenhaal showmance: For Taylor’s 21st birthday on Dec. 13, her new beau Jake Gyllenhaal, 30, has reportedly given her a very expensive present … a $100,000 bracelet!
“It’s an Oscar-worthy bracelet — nearly 30 carats of colorless diamonds set in white gold,” a source tells In Touch magazine. “It cost Jake about $100,000, but he wanted to do something special for Taylor’s birthday.”
Besides the 30-carat sparkler, Jake also picked up some other goodies for Tay. “They love coffee, so he sent her 21 pounds of the best Kona coffee available, along with a coffee grinder and a coffeemaker,” says the source. “And he made her a birthday card, as opposed to buying a generic one!”
Taylor seems so taken away by Jake that she’s even changing up her image to please her new man. “She’s decided to get a more sophisticated look,” another source notes. “She’s buying from stores like Chanel, Prada and Hermes.”

Do you think Jake and Tay's relationship is real?
YES! So real! 77.94%
Heck no! They're still faking it! 22.06%

If Reeke strongly suggested that Jake was gay, Gyllyswift all but proves it.

Only a closeted, ambitious but professionally frustrated gay man would come up with two bearding schemes as transparently, patently unbelievable as this.

Taylor's previous 'dating' history essentially outs Jake. There's really nothing left to speculate about at this point.

HEATH Ledger's daughter will not share Christmas with her Australian family.

link to article

Anonymous said...

^^The late actor's former partner Michelle Williams said she was trying to move on almost three years after his death.

She said she has no plans to spend Christmas with Ledger's parents in Perth as "it has been years now".

Instead, she wants five-year-old Matilda to be free to develop her own holiday traditions.

Asked what her plans for Christmas were, Williams told the New York Post: "The usual thing expected is always go home to Mum or be in Australia with Heath Ledger's family.

"But it's been years now. I want my daughter to develop her own traditions. I want her freed from old ways."

The comments reignite the persistent rumours of tensions between Williams and the Ledger family.


Start of sidebar. Skip to end of sidebar.
.End of sidebar. Return to start of sidebar.

But Ledger's sister Kate yesterday called such claims a "load of rubbish", adding: "We are very close to Michelle and are in discussions with her to have a family get-together."

Williams and Ledger split in late 2007, a few months before the actor accidentally overdosed in New York.

I wouldn't be surprised if that was true.

First M. trapps Heath with an "accidental" pregnancy, then when he finally leaves her and hooks up with Gemma, she makes it harder for him to see little M..
No wonder his family supposedly is indifferet towards Michelle. I'm confident that in a couple years we will find out more about what happened between Heath and Michelle and I wouldn't be surprised if the cause of break up wasn't only his alleged heavy addiction to drugs that the media wanted us all to believe.
