Mix and Match

While having a pretty classic All American prep look Austin always seems to add one thing that throws it all into a twist. To acknowledge that here's the best of the Texan's twist on things.

From head to toe
Make up and Masks
Glasses
Adding little sugar to the look.

Feathered tees and tighty jeans.
Suspenders and beads and vests.
Funky plaid suits.
Beloved overcoat Fingerless Gloves
Stripey socks and

Big Rubbah Boots



Rings of course a totally in a league of their own. Look at all those options.

PLEASE NOTE: No wardrobe departments or stylists were harmed or injured in the making of these outfits, this was just one man on a fashion mission. God help those who love him. : D

To answer really? on the other thread: indeed, I bet Austin felt pretty annoyed as well.

Back to the outfit scrutiny!

destiny said...

Have to agree that bearding is all about business, and Austin has proven he could care less by going along with Reeke for three years and then bearding himself.

However I don't get how it could be about Sophin when OTH has already been renewed, and another season doesn't start for months. They'll have to start filming soon too, so it's not like they're going to be out there auditioning for movie roles. And if it was all about Sophia, we would have had dozens of pictures of Sophin and just a few of Jake.

This past weekend was all about Jake and POP, and trying to reclaim some of what Reeke and Disney got rid of after being wrong about what would sell POP.

Reclaim what, what was the PR message behind Jake's photo op with his 'dating' friends?

Jersey Tom said...

I was thinking about Hilarie saying that Austin dissappeared on weekends from OTH and NC. If he came to OTH as a romantic gesture to Sophia I would take it that most of the OTH staff knew that Austin and Sophia were a couple. So why was his dissapearing such a mystery and why would he have to dissappear. I am sure as close as Austin and Hilarie seemed to be she would have known Austin and Sophia were a couple. No Mystery. Right?

I think that makes too much sense, Tom.

I don't think the gym outing had anything to do with PoP. How are Austin & Sophia going to help with that? I don't know if OTH fans were a real target audience of Disney's. If that was the case, we could've had the 3 of them any other time leading up to the release of PoP. Probably would've seemed a little more credible as well.

Or we could've at least seen Jake & Austin together then during their special April time when history has shown they like to go out together.

The significance of Jake & Austin in a photo op together after how long? When was that last time? A long time ago. Over a year, right?

Why this past weekend? After PoP has already come out? After OTH is on seasonal hiatus and has been renewed?

And I don't see this same situation capable of being duplicated from Austin's end from a paparazzi-calling photo-op angle. I doubt Austin has that kind of finger snap command. Sophia maybe? But if she had been the one to call this one, uh....she sure didn't get her money's worth, lol.

I would totally agree on the business side of bearding. But sometimes, I think HW celebs are no different from any of us. There are personal issues that unexpectedly come out of nowhere. There are emotions & hurt feelings and there's egos and there's some position jockeying.


Cute post today. Austin certainly has a unique flair for fashion.

ted said...

Dear Ted:
With the shomance over, I am very curious what Reese will do this weekend to get photographed? With all the Prince of Persia hype this week, I am surprised that Reese isn't being "spotted" all over the place or maybe floating a rumor of engagement.
—CJ

Dear Paparazzi Hot Spot:
The weekend is still young, CJ—there's plenty of time for Reese to decide to do a last-minute shopping spree on Rodeo, new BF in tow, obviously. That's so Reese's way, after all.

Dear Ted:
Fox [Fox411]has it out there today that our beloved Pattz is schmoozing Reese and telling everyone onset that K.Stew is not coming to visit and that he is single. really? I'd like to know if you've got a "deep water" to tell you otherwise.
—Me in NY

Dear Another Day:
Another stupid Robsten rumor.

Dear Ted:
What are the most hilariously inaccurate BV guesses you've gotten?

destiny said...

LOL, isn't Ted a little late with that first letter. And Reese has been MIA this weekend.

I'm not wedded to any one idea when it comes to our threesome this weekend, except that I don't think we'd have gotten those photos if POP had been doing really well at the box office. I was kind of expecting to see photos of Jake this weekend given the movie being out, I just think maybe the photos were meant to create buzz for Jake. I don't think he'd have gotten much attention if he was just walking down the street by himself. They were probably hoping more people would pick it up. Where was Dlisted and E!?

M and M said...

Okay, I'm going to jump into the speculative fray on this one. The day the photos were first posted on JustJared, I had the feeling that Jake was the one behind this photo op. Why? Let me count the ways. Jake is an expert concealer and dissimulator. He was seen with Austin because he wanted to be papped with him. He lingers at the doorway and looks directly into the camera. No evidence of surprise or anxiety. What we get instead are smiles/smirks, almost a serene, casual look on his face. Just a guess, but I don't think this was so much about PoP, in terms of movie promotion (if it were, why not post the pics on Saturday, which is the biggest ticket selling day of the week or better yet, before the movie even came out), as it was about sending the message that he completed his contractual "obligations" like a good boy and that scripted part of his life is behind him now. Almost communicating that "You guys were right. Much of what I did these past few years was manufactured for public consumption. This is the real me I hid away." SB is there probably as a concession to the CW who is the prime promoter of her fake romance with Austin, the same kind of fictitious coupling they do with all their stable of imminently forgettable starlets. Also, all the photos were focused on Jake, or Jake and Austin. SB barely registers. So this was not about OTH. The fact the photos were carefully selected to make it appear that AN/SB got into a separate vehicle from Jake, only confirms my initial impression that Jakey was trying to have it both ways. The "I'm in control, but I've still got public limitations." In other words, Jake's not coming out of the closet anytime soon, folks. Frankly, I'm with the crowd that thinks he was furious when he heard about SB bragging that she and AN had been a couple since 2006. It's one thing to beard, it's another thing to try to eliminate Jake from AN's life during that critical turning point when many of us believe he and Austin became more than just friends. More than just lovers. But, a real family with all the sacrifices and intimacies that kind of commitment entails. Coming out with Austin so quickly after his week long PR blitzkreig tells me he wanted to reinsert himself into the equation tout suite. Basically, "It's not about Austin and Sophia people, because I'm still here. And, I ain't going anywhere."

I think Jake will want to get PoP behind him a lot quicker than BBM. I think the day that PoP effected every move Jake made is over. I am sure he cant wait till LAOD comes out and he finally gets some decent reviews. Who knows if the movie is nominated and Anne is nominated for an Oscar it could drag Jake in the race also. Right now Jake is on the second tier of contenders. I think Maggie got nominated because Jeff Bridges was so awesome. Same could happen to Jake if Anne is exceptional in LAOD. Right now she is one of the very favorites to win.

That doesn't make sense. Jake was bearding for years and he was the one doing his best to convince everyone that Austin hardly exist in his life.

You aren't sending such message by hiding your closeted ass behind Austin's beard :)

prairiegirl said...

That doesn't make sense. Jake was bearding for years and he was the one doing his best to convince everyone that Austin hardly exist in his life.

Right. Correcta-mundo.

Two things on how this strikes me about Jake:

1) I agree that he was undoubtably, probably furious about SB's unthinking spout. And I think this was also about his ego. He's the one who called the shots here. He's the one re-asserting his position with Austin. Hey - he's spoiled and so he's allowed to publicly show his jealousy.


2) But in a way, it also shows how much Austin means to him. The fact that Jake had no sooner arrived back from NYC after those two weeks of across the world promotion (with barely a couple days rest in between the 2 weeks), and he's wasting no time in showing that she had crossed the line. Suitcase wasn't probably even unpacked yet.

I think it was just different when the shoe was on his foot.

Because Reese pulled alot of crap, too. Who knows? Maybe Austin read him the riot act a few times.

But I think it just shows that Jake didn't want to handle it in private. He had to do it his way.

M and M said...

That doesn't make sense. Jake was bearding for years and he was the one doing his best to convince everyone that Austin hardly exist in his life.

Nothing ever makes sense to you... really? Kinda odd, don't you think?

In any event, Reeke was not about Jake convincing the world that Austin didn't exist. It was about trying to squash the gay rumors and persuade the world he was straight. I suspect Austin and Jake agreed to the arrangement because they both shared the same goal (in other words, a joint decision like true partners make). In retrospect, I now also think the fauxmance was too provide a distracting cover for him and Austin to begin a family together. There were weeks when no one saw Jake, so all he had to do was come out for a 10 minute coffee run with his "girlfriend," and the public thought they were just so in love that the two of them could barely get out of bed.

If SB hadn't opened her mouth, the AN/SB fauxmance would have fallen into the same formulaic category. But, SB decided to make an explicit statement, audaciouosly designed to make the public think that she had been the center of Austin's life since 2006. On the other hand, Jake never even talked about, nor acknowledged the Reeke fauxmance until it was over. I'm sure Jake's ego was not pleased, never mind his heart.

No need to comment,really. I already know my point of view doesn't make sense to you. I'm communicating with those who have a better grasp of factual sequencing and causal distinctions.

prairiegirl said...

I would agree, m&m. Jake was probably trying to have it both ways otherwise we would've had a picture released of him & Austin together in the front seat. Still benefiting from the beard albeit with a shackle around her ankle while doing it, LOL!

I mean, he was allowing them to be seen as Sophin, I guess, but man, talk about a tight leash.

And only because of Same Car's persistence, do we know that in private, Jake was showing Sophia who the real couple was.

To me, this was the sedately controlled version of Jake getting down on that sidewalk and pounding his feet & fists with a red faced fit. I bet he can be a real pistol when he has a fit. He may not be all that far off from a character in a story I know of. ;D

really? said...

In any event, Reeke was not about Jake convincing the world that Austin didn't exist.

OK, fair enough, Reeke was about Jake being 'straight' ergo nothing more than friends with Austin, so it was Jake who "eliminated Jake from AN's life during that critical turning point when many of us believe he and Austin became more than just friends, more than just lovers".

There are hundreds and hundreds of reeke photos and hundreds of reeke articles that can be used to deny Austin's special role in Jake's life - compared to that a few sentences from Sophia is next to nothing.

And only because of Same Car's persistence, do we know that in private, Jake was showing Sophia who the real couple was.

Why? Because Sophia doesn't know she's just a beard?

M and M said...

*Big Grin* Good point. I sure hope Jake protects those ears of his then! No tellin' what that tall Texan might do to try to simmer him down! LOL.

Btw: Is it wrong of me to enjoy visualizing Jake having a hissy fit out of uncontrolled jealousy? Never mind the make-up sex. Wooohooo!

M and M said...

so it was Jake who "eliminated Jake from AN's life during that critical turning point...

Okay, I'm going to try just one more time. Here's the relevant passage from my text that you chose to ignore:

I suspect Austin and Jake agreed to the arrangement because they both shared the same goal (in other words, a joint decision like true partners make).

I don't believe Jake did anything unilaterally, without Austin's consent. I have no doubt that Reeke was a joint agreement between two equal partners trying to give each other what they needed at the time. Plain and simple.

really? said...

I suspect Austin and Jake agreed to the arrangement because they both shared the same goal (in other words, a joint decision like true partners make).

If Jake and Austin were together, then I agree, reeking was a joint decision.
But my 8:06 PM comment is about yours "it's one thing to beard, it's another thing to try to eliminate Jake from AN's life during that critical turning point" - Jake's bearding was public denial of his relationship with Austin, there is no need to be pissed off with Sophia.

really? said...

The fact that Jake had no sooner arrived back from NYC after those two weeks of across the world promotion (with barely a couple days rest in between the 2 weeks), and he's wasting no time in showing that she had crossed the line.

Jake was doing a photo op with Sophia, he helped Austin and Sophia get publicity for their 'relationship'. What was the 'showing that she had crossed the line' part?

destiny said...

I don't believe Jake did anything unilaterally, without Austin's consent. I have no doubt that Reeke was a joint agreement between two equal partners trying to give each other what they needed at the time. Plain and simple.

M and M, I can see that, but if that is the case, then I think the same thing goes for Sophin. Also totally agree with you that Jake wanted to be seen with Austin, just don't know what dragging along Sophia means.

But I have to agree with Really that Jake was also trying to make Austin non-existent in the Reeke years. A yearly bike ride doesn't change that. But I think Jake was also doing that with everyone else in his life too during Reeke. So don't see why Jake would care about what Sophia said, and really don't think she'd have said it unless she thought it was okay with J&A or ran it by them first. But, at the time it was said, I don't think they knew POP would do so poorly at the box office.

Still not convinced we would have seen Austin this weekend if POP had been a huge success. Don't forget if it had been Jake would be looking at doing sequels and keeping Disney happy.

prairiegirl said...

I agree that Reeke made Austin non-existent in Jake's life. But like someone else has told me tonight, Reeke made most everyone non-existent in Jake's life, let's face it. It wasn't just Austin. Reeke separated Jake from everyone and he said as much in an interview. I read a quote from him saying that "coupling up" had done that and he was trying to "fix" that. Whatever in the heck that means.

But then I no longer think Reeke was about PoP but to make Jake look straight while hiding the surrogacy of BT. And if that's the case, he very well couldn't have Austin always at his side, I don't think. That would have looked kind of funny. The guys may as well have come out with the whole story.

Reeke just went down bad. It didn't work very well at all and Jake lost some fans because people don't like to be lied to. I hope he gets that after all of this.

But I also said I wasn't going to beat him up over it anymore. Reeke is history and as far as I'm concerned, I've let it go.

And from about this point on, neither Reeke nor PoP can be used anymore to blame things on.

prairiegirl said...

really?, I'm done with you. You're just being argumentative and asking the same things over and over.

M and M said...

Still not convinced we would have seen Austin this weekend if POP had been a huge success. Don't forget if it had been Jake would be looking at doing sequels and keeping Disney happy.

That's certainly possible, Destiny. Then again, if PoP had been a huge success it may have actually emboldened/liberated Jake a bit. Given him a little more confidence and leverage. Don't know why, but I just have the feeling that Jake was counting down the days, until his promotional obligations for PoP were concluded. Just like some of us, I think he has been ready to move on into a new phase of life (post-Reeke) for a very long time. Maybe that's what his focus on the womb and rebirth have been all about these past few months. From my vantage point, I think he has a lot to look forward to. A friend of mine saw a private screening of LAOD and said Jake was absolutely terrific. Source Code looks good too.

Regarding fauxmance shenanigans, I think Austin is similar to Jake in terms of letting his beard run roughshod over him. So I do think it's quite possible that both men let the women in the "relationship" take the lead and passively accepted alot of what was dished out. Whether it be engagement rings or reinventions about how one of them was so smitten he moved across the continent to be with her. If Austin had endorsed that fabrication, he would have stood by SB's side when the fairy tale was spun. Yet, the point was made clear in the article that Sophia pulled the reporter aside and shared this little tidbit all by herself. The story actually makes Austin look like SB's lovesick lapdog. Not a flattering picture at all. Therefore, if Austin proactively approved such an out of the blue "rewrite" he's not only a fool, but a pretty Machiavellian player. He really doesn't remind be of either.

m said...

Lots of theories proposed here. I'm on the side of Jake knowing his obligations to Disney are over and its his way of saying FU I'm done. Disney knew for the last 2 weeks that POP was weak just based on ticket presales. POP did not even show up in the top 5 ticket sales on Fandango until the movie practically opened. Plus, Jake just got back from 2 weeks on the road and he just plain wanted to spend his time with Austin.

m said...

I meant to mention that I love all the photos of Austin in his fashion glory. He is distinctive and fun. He and Jake really do make a great match.

Someone mentioned hundreds of pictures of Reeke. I beg to differ. There really were surprisingly few pictures of them for the time they were bearding. All of them look staged and none show any signs of affection or tenderness. A complete contrast to pictures of Jake and Austin. Lakers 1 stops me in my tracks every time. The wiping down video and those longing glances during TDAT filming make me swoon. They were always aware of each other.

m said...

A couple more quick toughts then off to bed for me. I took a few days off last week and was swamped at work today. Wiped me out.

Re OTH, I recall reading that they are doing a shortened season when they return.There is no way OTH will come back yet another time. It's already being called Over The Hill, not One Tree Hill.

I do feel bad for Jake and am glad he has Austin to soothe his hurt. All these scathing ariticles about how poorly POP did have to be a bummer. I think it will do well this coming weekend. Minimal competition and positive word of mouth but it may be too late to overcome the first impression.

ester said...

I don't know if Jake is gay straight with or without Austin. But I think it did POP for fun and to stretch into the action hero given a chance. But I think going forward he is going to be in much better movies and he'll be terrific. I cannot wait to see Source Code it sounds like a terrific project not to mention that the director is as hip as it gets. POP was no 1 in 40 countries, btw, that cannot be bad. I know for the US centric people thta does not matter. But for the rest it does. it sure does.

Popsugar said...

Popsugar, that is one of the most PR oriented sites and was promoting PoP with Disney (even doing a private Popsugar screening with Jake present), posted 2 of the Jaustin gym set. They don’t mention Austin is with him, but they chose one pic of Jake alone and one pic of Jake with Austin. No Sophia.

Caught in the Act!

After a whirlwind week promoting his new movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Jake Gyllenhaal was in the mood to kick back. The actor started his weekend with a big night out at L.A.'s Trousdale Lounge, where he sat in the back room sipping vodka along with a large group of friends. Later, he was spotted at Lamill Coffee Boutique in Silver Lake twice – first for a steak and eggs brunch with a couple and their little girl, then again for a Memorial Day breakfast after riding his motorcycle. During the brunch, the actor "seemed to enjoy playing with the couple's daughter," an onlooker says.

Check out IHJ gallery, there are more than 1.000 photos, sometimes more than 100 pictures from the same op, sometimes 2 or 3 photo ops from the same day.

Good points, ester. I think it's great that PoP did well overseas. Can you plug a few more tickets while you're at it? lol.

You know, I don't care what anyone else says. I'm proud of him. I loved the movie. No, I'm not the movie expert that everyone else on here is. I'm not serious about my movies; you guys know I'm all about romcoms and no Mel Gibson bloodbaths for me, thank you. I don't apologize for it either. That's probably why I'm like the only one around here who would go back & see it again. PoP was right up my alley. No, it's not Pride & Prejudice but it was enjoyable. It's always so typical of America to skewer something after a finished product or person messes up or doesn't do well. It's just the American way, ester.

pap said...

Theysaid the couple's little girl PG, read it again and he must have been their friends since they allowed him to play with their daughter.

He must have friends in Venice and S. Lake, he seems to be seen there a lot. He still lives in the HH most likely.

prairiegirl said...

really?, just what exactly is your deal. Why don't you just state your opinion and what you think the gym photo op was all about instead of just keep questioning everyone. Good grief.


And speaking of this kind of behavior, I would like to throw something out there. I know Special will beat me up but sometimes observations just need to be made. For those who scoff at the opinion that PR lurks around & trolls. Notice some of what has been noticeably absent for about the past week. We were trolled viciously big time alot of the month of May and when did it disappear? (other than the Jacks and a few Austin bashers but they don't count. They're staples like flour & sugar) It disappeared leading up to the promotion of PoP and this past weekend.

This weekend when you would've thought with Jake & Austin appearing out together, they would've been giving it to us big time.

The exact same thing happened as soon as Reese made her big split announcement on People.com. Poof! Gone.

Could some of that have been because all hands were needed on deck. Sometimes, things are simple like that.

Very telling, I think. And now if we get anything today, it'll be too late, sorry. Too late, too late. I've already put it out there.

prairiegirl said...

Theysaid the couple's little girl PG, read it again and he must have been their friends since they allowed him to play with their daughter.

Do I sound stupid? People also are the ones who changed Jake's quote from "my family" to "my friends". They're also the ones who spun the split story to it being all about Reese.


Sorry if I don't take People's words to heart all the time. Their wording on these sightings is very vague, in my opinion. Not that I don't believe them, I do. But they are vague for a reason.

First after a headache that flattened me after doing yesterday's post, I've finally caught up on all the comments.

First off PG, say what you want. And I'm not going to beat you up.

Did anyone miss the other thing in the People mention. Jake on a motorcycle? When has he done that before?

You think it really was a motorcycle or a scooter like Austin has talked about having? Both are more economic than a car. Do you really think People would say Jake would be riding a scooter. Makes you wonder if it was a action star boost to the description.

The group of friends, well it seems more than likely that one in that group would have been Austin.

And yes the mention of the little girl is very interesting.

Special K said...

About the whole gym picture thing and the Sophin story telling time.

M&M said: Coming out with Austin so quickly after his week long PR blitzkreig tells me he wanted to reinsert himself into the equation tout suite. Basically, "It's not about Austin and Sophia people, because I'm still here. And, I ain't going anywhere."

totally agree

I said this back when Reeke happened that Jake did not make that decision alone. Long before that Ted mentioned that they (as Toothy and Goose) were thinking more we than me, and to make decision to enter into an arrangement to beard, is one where not just one makes the decision, it has to be a we decision because it affects all. And not think Jake would have done what he did if Austin wasn't on board for it and vise versa.

That's not to say that they haven't gotten frustrated with the situation or the other's beard. They both have run roughshot over the boys, I agree M&M. I wonder if it is the motivation behind the agreements. For J&A its about it being a means for them having a private life, and for the ladies it all about advancing their public careers. The guys were like ok, I made the decision, its working, I have my private life, it was the decision that was the big thing. But the ladies are looking for more ways to use it and amping things up.

Reese needed a lot of coffee runs and dragged her kids in it, but she didn't try to rewrite history unlike Sophia. And Austin is confident of his place in Jake's life. So I can see Austin not having to reinsert himself in the situation. But for Jake's it's different, its about where he is in the relationship, the assurance that comes with it. And yes the anxiety of not being a part of Austin's life, written off as it were. And yeah, you can see a hell of hissy that could come from that, PG. You know when you love big, the passions big, and that means the emotions big. And yes agree Jake needed to do what he did to reinsert himself.

One reason I think Sophia did what she did was to make sure that Austin couldn't walk away from the deal now. She's seen the baby steps Jake has been taking again, and it might have gotten her worried and she need to make sure that she wouldn't be left high and dry. She created a story that connect her & Austin to OTH, and OTH is still happening she sealed them together, and the Sophin thing is good for her and her storyline and the show because her fans are eating it up. And with this last season, she wants to make sure that doesn't change for her.

Why are you ignoring the fact that Austin was 'written off' by Jake's bearding and Reese's showmance lies?
How can you compare a few sentences from Sophia with what Jake and Reese did during Reeke years?

ted said...

Dear Ted:
Sophia Bush did an interview with E! recently where she talked a little about her relationship with Austin Nichols. What several people are conveniently glossing over is that Sophia clearly mentioned that she and Austin have been "on and off" since she left her cheating ex-husband. There are fan pictures of Sophia and Austin from 2006, then 2008 when her relationship with Jon Foster ended and then the third time wasn't until Austin joined One Tree Hill. They started dating in 2009 after Sophia and James Lafferty broke up. I've always gotten the feeling that you're not a fan of Sophia and Austin's relationship, but you're the only one who can set things straight. Some people have completely misinterpreted what Sophia said and have put words in her mouth while jumping to false conclusions. Can you please set people straight?

I don't think Cres will challenge T2's B.V. throne anytime soon (Toothy has his own friggin' website after all), but C.K. is definitely loving his time in the limelight—and trust, he's been having plenty of fun lately. Some of his costars are aware of his skanky habits; others remain in the dark.

I checked both silver rings, the width is thick on Austin's pinky ring, but the length appears to be thin. There is also some color to his pinky ring but that may be a reflection.

Jake's silver ring is not a pinky ring (it's on his right "ring" finger and it appears a tad big as you have pointed out Sk) and the band looks wider.


They don't match.

M and M said...

Thanks, ring. I was just going to ask if "same car" could perform their photo forensic magic, once again. My naked eye thought the same thing, but given the angle of Austin's photo it was difficult to determine the thickness of the band. Nonetheless, there still is no doubt that Jake wanted everyone to see that oversized silver band on his right index finger when he arrived at Heathrow Airport in early May. Guess the mystery still remains unresolved. LOL.

And, yes, the People sighting with the "onlooker" noting that Jake "seemed to enjoy playing with the couple's daughter," in a Lamill Silver Lake Coffee Boutique is interesting. Sounds like whoever was making the observation felt like Jake was engaged in the activity throughout the breakfast. Otherwise, it hardly would have been noteworthy if there had been just a few friendly interactions. If it was the other couple's child why was Jake the one interacting with them? And, Jake is eating out in Silver Lake, twice in two days. A enclave of artist types with a very significant LGBT community. He certainly wouldn't have done that last week.

M and M said...

I meant to write, "If it was the other couple's child, why was Jake the one that was sited as interacting with the little girl?" Of course, there is more than one explanation, but it certainly is one more instance of Jake's family friendly fondness and child comfort level.

Sorry about Libby PG. :-(

And sorry about your killer headache yesterday Special, hope you're feeling better today.

That whole People story strikes me as strange. The first part sounds like PR dribble timed to show Jake out and having a good time and to get some publicity for the movie. The motorcycle bit is odd too. Just don't know what to think of that. Scooter? Mistaken identification? BT is a girl (I really don't think there is a second one)??

destiny said...

I just spent Monday out with friends and their almost 4 year old son. At dinner the boy ended up between me and his mother, and yes, even though I don't think of myself as a real kid person, I spent a great deal of the dinner interacting with him just because he was next to me. So I don't necessarily read anything in to the fact that Jake, who likes children, was supposedly interacting with a child over brunch. It will take more than that to make me think she was a BT.

M and M said...

Mornin', Destiny. I certainly agree with you, but it still is an interesting observation that after Jake's long two week promotional work, traveling all over the world, jetlagged and in need of some quiet time, he goes out to breakfast-- the first morning back-- with two people who bring a child. As a single person, wanting to decompress/relax from all the hoopla, that would not have been my first choice of an early morning dining experience.

Regarding the prospect of a BT2, there are references in Ted's Toothy Tile archive where he suggests that there is a BT2. Note the plural of "babes" and the "two-timing" type below. The chronology would have had the child born in January, 2009.

Dear Ted:
Ted, I love your wit, and the new retina-burning format is starting to grow on me. You said there's a Baby Tile — is there another one on the way? Is it Ben Affleck?

Dear Baby Q:
Such the good guess, babes, so right in so many brunet directions, alas, it's the wrong two-timing type.

thank you.

Remember when Austin talked about his scooter getting 115mpg last spring at the Global Green event. It led to this post on OMG: Sccotin' around back last June.

Look at the model that got that kind of mileage and then read the comment at People. They didn't say motorcycle they said the word motorbike.

It makes me really think this is what Jake was riding. Now the question is, are there one or two in the Gyllenichol's garage?

ring said...

M and M, Jake has been spotted in Silverlake before, several times last year with Reese for instance. There were tweets and People sightings of them at the Lamill Coffee boutique and at the Intellista.

I assume he has friends that live there and he visits, the tweets of him there before with Reese and solo were back to back days so they I assumed there are friends there as well as Venice where he is also spotteda lot.

I assume that the couple and the little girl were friends of his in the area, the sighting says he had brunch with a couple and their daughter, not that he just wandered over and start playing with the kid.

Yes friends, imagine that. And look he has brunch with his friends and hangs out with them at clubs, amazing!

I think most of Jake's friends are "civilians". I do know that one on Jake's ex, Jenny Lewis lives in Silverlake and he is still pals with her. I assume there are more friends of his that live there.

ring said...

No Sk, the People sighting says motorcycle, the word motorbike is being used for the re-tweet of the People story. The original source, People says motorcycle.

I think the hipsters in S. Lake no the difference between a motorbike/scooter and a motorcycle.

Ryan Gosling who lives there has been papped riding his motorcycle there, maybe we will get lucky!

destiny said...

I find it hard to believe that if Jake has a motorcycle he wouldn't have been seen with it and talked about it during POP promotion--that would have been a great way to get some cool points and appeal to boys and men.

Just because I don't read anything into Jake interacting with a kid doesn't mean I don't find the sighting interesting or that I don't think it is possible it was a BT. Just saying that for myself it is not enough to conclusively say it was a BT.

M and M raises a good point about a "single" guy running out like that right after getting back.

It's also possible the whole thing was planned by PR ahead of time, and that who knows if these things really happened, but rather was just planned POP movie-related pr before the bad box office and the Jaustin photos. After all, why no photos of any of this, or tweets from anyone at either one of the brunches. Not that I trust tweets completely either. Just saying.

destiny said...

Oops, almost meant that if it was POP pr-related, it was meant as a way of reinforcing the idea that Jake wasn't at home with Austin and BT, hence he couldn't possibly have his own family.

back in LA said...

M and M raises a good point about a "single" guy running out like that right after getting back.

Do we know when Jake was back in LA, are there airport sightings or some other info? I don't recall any.

give me a break said...

Jake visited doctor's office (photos) and was drinking with friends in the evening (tweets) of the same day he got back from Montreal (Source Code filming).

really? said...

really?, just what exactly is your deal. Why don't you just state your opinion and what you think the gym photo op was all about instead of just keep questioning everyone.

I keep questioning because so many OMG posters are choosing to ignore simple logic and common sense.
My opinion: gym photo op was about Jake doing a PR favour to Austin and Sophia.

Special K said...

Past gossip has been that Jake and Austin have been seen together in WeHo and Silverlake, it is a hipster enclave, it's not out of the ordinary to think of Jake being in Silverlake.

Work's done, it was a holiday weekend, hey doing what how many other people did the past weekend in their own neighborhood.

ring said...

So it wasn't out of the ordinary for Jake to be spotted there last year or with Jaime Lee Curtis , his G. mother and Reese the year before, etc.

Just pointing out to M & M that it's not out of the ordianry, she thinks it is, snort.

I love how you cherry pick gossip SK, ignoring all the recent sightings of him there because it involves your favorite vodoo doll!

really? said...

I don't remember any Silverlake sighting with Reese The Beard. Or was there one People magazine sighting/'sighting'?

ring said...

There were several tweets of them together in Silverlake, just before she started filming that movie with Paul Rudd. I remember the tweets of them at Intellingista and at Lamill, there was the People sighting of them at Lamill around the same time so I guess that would be 2 sightings of them there together last year. There were several of him solo.

I also remember a gawker sighting of them at Intellingista with Jamie Lee Curtis, if not last year then it was the year before.

m said...

The commenter who instantly jumps in to defend everything Jake does as not meaning he is with Austin, there is no baby tile etc must be getting exhausted. It's a 24/7 job that never yields results.

really? said...

I remember that Gawker "sighting" about Jake taking pictures of the beard - that was obvious made up bullshit.
I think the only Reeke sighting was 'reported' by People magazine.

Should everyone believe that Jake is still with Austin and that there is BT? One photo op every 14 months should be proof enough?

OMG said...

I'm with the camp who thinks now that work is over, it's time to relax and back to real life for Jake. I don't think these recent photos were a PR attempt to bring in the TB'ers, who probably are barely a blip on their radar. I'm sure it makes good sense to keep up on what people are saying on the internet, tho.

really? said...

Doing photo op with Austin and Austin's beard is "back to real life"?

prairiegirl said...

Well said, OMG.



LOLLLLL!!! Good grief, the naysayers have gotten their second wind back.

I don't think any of us is saying 100% BT was the one with Jake at the breakfast sighting. I was having some fun speculating. We're all tossing the ol' beach ball around. And look at who all gets wound up tighter than the waistband on my 3rd grade underwear. LOLLLLLLL!!!

I'm sorry, but it is just so funny. I needed this after my re-entry back into the lower deck of the ship.

Jake. On a motorcycle. LOLLLL. That's rich. snicker. Sorry, I'm trying to picture Jake "Arthur Fonzerelli" Gyllenhaal on his Harley. lol.

The return of the scoffing community I'm sure we can owe to the less secure discussions of brunch, motorbikes & tricycles, etc. Where was everyone when we were talking about the nondisputable keys in Austin & Jake's hands? Yeah, a lot more harder to scoff at, wasn't it? Pretty damaging. So let's just bring on all the discussion about this vague, fun, mundane blurb about Jake in People.com. It'll be a picnic and a good time will be had by all.

Okay, well, lunch hour is about up. My lunch went to Wally World where I had to get Vitamin Waters Zero and some yogurt. And cheese sticks.

It's nice to scroll down and see all those pictures of Mr. Austin. Love the candy necklace.

destiny said...

My opinion: gym photo op was about Jake doing a PR favour to Austin and Sophia.

If that was the case he would have done it a couple of months back, when they were desperate to get fans to watch OTH so that it would be renewed. It is meaningless now as a gesture for Sophin.

What about BT? 100% that BT exists?

Was Sophia's "4 years of dating" bomb meaningless? OTH needs publicity, needs people who will watch the show and the showmance goes on.
