Reality vs. Fan fiction 20

>> Imaginary BT and the real baby

Bloggers prairiegirl and Special K post fiction and don't allow posting facts about Jake and Austin on their blogs. About the latest "new BT" nonsense:

> Proud grandma Margie Nicholson is Facebook friends with Austin Nicholson:

> Her comment on Austin's Facebook page was an obvious mistake – comment was meant for Austin Nicholson and his baby daughter born in December 2015.

> Mrs. Nicholson’s comments on Nicholson’s Facebook from March ...

... and from April 2016:

So, he changed his life, the way men sometimes do around 30. He moved from his native Los Angeles to New York and pursued theatre. He chose smaller budget independent movies, with darker, more challenging themes. He calls it "a growing-up thing". And now a new Gyllenhaal has emerged; still with the boyish features, the searching eyes and a wide smile, but he's older now, more determined. His frown furrows have deepened. The blips are history: every film he makes now is worthy of your attention.

It was his parents' divorce in 2009 that finally convinced him to move to New York. His dad remarried, and his mum moved to Manhattan, where sister Maggie had long lived with the actor Peter Sarsgaard and their two daughters. So Jake moved east to join the clan. And right away, it was easier to think straight. It felt good to escape his old life, the claustrophobia of show business in LA where "sometimes friendship and work gets intertwined in a confusing way".

Here's a picture of Gyllenhaal in New York.

He's dancing in the streets of downtown Manhattan, really going for it, with his earphones in. And he's getting some funny looks. Who's that guy? What's going on? Not everyone realises it's a scene in Demolition, and director Jean-Marc VallΓ©e is shooting him from a distance.

But it's a fitting image for Jake; he's happier out east. He lives up the street with his German shepherd. He pops in on his sister and mum on a regular basis. And he's doing theatre again, a big component of his new life.
