Getting Carded

In an interview with Everything Austin, a couple of years ago the tall Texan talked about his favorite cities."And finally, what’s your favourite city in the world?"

"I have many favorite cities. Austin, New Orleans, London, Berlin, New York, Rome, Barcelona, San Francisco and Wilmington."

An where's been Jake seen recently?

New YorkSan FranciscoLondon
and where's Jake headed to next week?

Great way to get those postcards....and maybe not even spring for postage. ; )

When you've got the outfit....

Happy Austin Friday!

PG, that's kinda sick. Aren't you supposed to pay gift tax on that free stuff? I wonder how many of them actually pay the required taxes...

I would definitely think so; just not sure of the dollar amount. At work, my company has gotten very strict about accepting gifts from trucking carriers, etc., has to do with business ethics and all of that stuff.

The article made me wonder if this is how some celebrities get into financial trouble with their taxes? Seems like you will hear every once in awhile about some celebrity owing a lot of back taxes, which I can never figure out how that can happen.

Jason said...

Yummy. You've used my Avatar in support of Wear Red Day. Unfortunately, Jake looks so sexy there, I doubt that many women could withstand the overstimulation. I barely can.

Sad Sack, Jake! LOL! Yep, that's what the guy looks like doesn't he? Wonder what he's up to with all that, "Oh, poor me," routine in London? I agree Prairie Girl, Jake's being a little bit too melodramatic in those pics. Yeah, its hard to be a multimillionaire, who gets to fly all over the world, eat and drink at the best restaurants, drive expensive, luxury cars and get two round-trip tickets to Fiji, as well as accommodations at a five-star resort for saying a few lines at the Golden Globes. Smile Jake. You are behaving like a pampered spoiled ass. Or is this some kind of plan? Who knows with that guy.

Special K said...

Could the case of the mopes that Jake's got all over London is that he's tired of having to go out by himself and just wants to go out and be seen with Austin.

I can imagine it's hard going back to going out and getting photographed by himself after he and Austin were seen out together just a couple weeks before.

destiny said...

Wow, I thought they'd cut down on the freebies like that. Would love to go to Fiji.

prairiegirl said...

Or is he just "acting", Special?

Like Jason says, is it some kind of plan?

Who knows at this point but the pictures from London so far are a bit ridiculous.

It's just so hard being Jake.

Pssst! Jason, please call me PG! Much shorter to type.

Ted Casablanca Caught! Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Lunchtime Cozy with Mystery Chick!

Special K said...

I'm not saying that Austin isn't with him, and his upping his mopes to throw people off the trail. But it might be even harder if he is there, and for now being seen on a trip away together would be too much too soon in their plan.

Ted said...

Caught! Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Lunchtime Cozy with Mystery Chick!

And we were just saying that Jake Gyllenhaal's love life seemed rather...unfulfilled lately!

That is, until we heard word from a trusty NYC source who filled us in on the latest deets of Jakey-poo's secret lunch date. Apparently Jake—who infamously dated the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift—seems to have snagged a mystery gal outside the limelight:

READ: Where Does Dreamy Jake Gyllenhaal Go When He's Not Working?

And apparently she's friggin' stunning. Our New York diner scored a table near J.G. and his lady friend at ABC Kitchen, the Jean Georges eatery at the ABC Carpet & Home store, earlier this week.

"I immediately saw this gorgeous girl because I get girl crushes easily but didn't think anything of it," our babe gushes about Jake's date (whom we're told is an Alessandra Ambrosio look-alike). "She had a fur coat on, a Balenciaga bag and a high pony. Then we sit down and order and my mother notices Jake G. seated with the babe girl."

Well, that's nice and all but we wanna hear how hottie Jake looked! Which our source was happy to do, saying he appeared rather scruffy with a "fuzzy beard sitch" and was dressed in dark, inconspicuous clothes.

But apparently not inconspicuous enough, as Jake was approached by a few fans with whom he happily took pictures. And—get ready to awww with us—he apparently went up and talked to another family's kid.

Too friggin' cute!

"They were leaning close like they were dating," our source gossips to us about the lunchtime couple, who sipped coffee and picked at a piece of cake before getting their shoppin' on.

The twosome spent some time meandering through the home goods section of ABC Carpet & Home before checking out the upstairs levels with bed and bath products:

"They were touchy before they got into the elevator," our vigilant spy spills. "They looked happy."

How très domestic, eh? We are just dying to find out who this new mystery chick is! Care to share, Mr. Gyllenhaal?

"earlier this week, and "he appeared rather scruffy with a "fuzzy beard sitch".

I thought that Jake was clean shaven? Of course now that he appears out of nowhere in England with his beard intact, the story hits that Jake was at ABC kitchen in the middle of the day (earlier in the week) with no tweets placing him there. Yeah, babblers have been running around Twitterdom for months trying to put Jake together with that Victoria Secret model. Wouldn't be surprised if one of them wrote to Ted once he was nowhere near NY. Don't know about you, but I don't have romantic dates out in the middle of a crowded, popular eatery.

^Especially, when your new personna is, Jake Gyllenhaal: Leave Me Alone. In fact, that's exactly how he is being "sold" in England. Mr. Lonely Boy who has no one in his life.

london tb said...

I think he's just cold, honestly he might be used to our normal temperate winter and be a bit shocked at the temperatures we have at the moment. (Today was sunny at least). And what a guy, fitting in Moro, the Connaught, the Wolseley, the Ivy etc etc in such a small amount of time!

Cameron Diaz has been photographed in the papers looking for flats in Belsize Park, but haven't seen any pics of Jake in the papers yet.

Seems like a normal stop-off en route to Berlin for a traveller like Jake.

I think Ted's been totally had.

Hey Ted, I have some land to sell you.

LOL! Jake's acting like a tourist who only has 48 hours to eat his way through London. Lonely Jake is going to become Chubby Jake soon.

I agree. All the hot spots and of course Jake's hitting every one of them. Must of been in his tour package.

That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely,
I wish that I could go back home.

Letters, never a letter,
I get no letters in the mail.
I've been forgotten, yeah, forgotten,
Oh how I wonder how is it I failed.

I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier,
Away from home through no wish of my own.
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely,
I wish that I could go back home

He's not lonely, though. I believe he's got his kind of company with him in secret.

wzup with TED...threatened by the Mafia...6+ years ago he couldn't stop yakking about Jake the bearded one and now that no one really gives a s*it...never did...he goes daffy...Jake is here in my city and is hanging all over a beautiful woman and NO ONE tweets it...he's not be bothered here ever but what TED?
I usually take everything with a HUGE grain of salt...grandma's do that...but here, in my city, Jake with a woman...someone has to have a posted direct tweet.
Ted's starting to resemble Willard "Mitt" Romney!

Sorry, can't take any allegations of Jake with a woman seriously. And one site that also had it was ripping him to shreds for being gay. Fooling no one. I guess his new pr has to run it up the flagpole to see how it flies. Rule #1. People in love look happy, not morose.

Amazon is joining other Pacific Northwest companies, including Microsoft, Starbucks and Nike, in support of Washington state's marriage equality bills,” Amazon said in a statement. “The spirit of these bills is consistent with our longstanding employment practices.”

Amazon's support arrived just hours before the Washington Senate approved the bill by a wider margin than expected.

You don't have to ask me twice, Tom.

Tom, you're being a sourpuss. lol

These things are used more than you know. They can be used to disprove lies. Lies put out by whomever has intentions of deceit.

And speaking from personal experience, to have them "archived" on OMG is totally, totally invaluable.

If we don't like what we see, we just have to scroll over. I know I don't necessarily read everything that goes up, and no one reads everything I put up. Don't expect them to - I put up a lot of chatter.

But this blog has become an archive when it comes to both Austin & Jake.

All people have to do is converse/talk more and maybe there wouldn't be so many tweets, who knows? The blog Comment thread is like a buffet cafeteria and we are ALL the cooks. So we can't blame anyone but ourselves for the content of the "spread".

Get what I mean?

prairiegirl said...

Starbucks ROCKS.

I agree - no one quite rocks the human system like a full-fledged caffeine-saturated Starbucks beverage. It seems to me like they revolutionized the re-introduction of coffee drinking in this country and their concept of the soothing, quiet, dimly-lit surroundings to tempt patrons into lingering & relaxing while drinking and/or visiting.

I hate bearding said...

About Ted’s latest, he included many Toothy references in his post (beard, family, kid, domesticated). I hate the idea of Jake bearding again, so I hope this is just a random girl and not a new beard.

There were other recent sightings that also mentioned a girl that fits Ted’s description.

The guy who writes the ‘my new plaid pants’ blog who adores Jake and Austin (proof here and here and all the other Jake and Austin posts he has), posted this on twitter when he saw Jake in NYC this past weekend:
@JAMNPP Jason Adams
Paparazzo Fail - I saw Jake Gyllenhaal today and all I got a pic of is the distant ponytail of the girl he was with 28 Jan via web

There were also these other two sightings:

I guess I will have to start ignoring them PG. The one at 11:15pm sounds like some teenage girl who needs some ritalin. Waste of time paying any attention to. I actually don't even take the ones placing J and A together either seriously either. Tweets are worthless. It is all about pics for me.

PR? said...

In The Awful Truth post, there are comments saying the girl with Jake was model Izabel Goulart. Remember this NY Post PR plant at the Victoria Secret show posted Nov 11 2011:

...Also sizing up the models was Jake Gyllenhaal, dressed down and almost incognito in a wool hat and sweat shirt, who “chatted up [Brazilian model] Izabel Goulart for 30 minutes,” the spy said.

“Security wouldn’t let anyone take pictures of them together. He had his hand on the small of her back and she leaned into his ear to talk.”


Jake fired his manager Evelyn and left CAA for WME, but he is still with the same PR (I/D PR? Carrie?). It could be their doing.

Methodical Muser said...

Great information about possible PR manipulation regarding these sudden pairings of Jake with a tall, brunette, model, often exotic (i.e. from Brazil or Argentina or Sweden). And it's not just Izabel Goulart either. Whether it's at a 5 Star Restaurant or a hipster Bowling Alley, Jake has been associated with models since early last year. The key is that they must be brunette, tall and breathing (LOL).

Here's a brief list of who has been linked to Jake in the blogs, twitter and the rags since last year alone:

Sophie Buhai (Fashion Industry)
Izabel Goulart
Swedish model Mini Anden,
Salina Rose
Augustina Ibañez
Minka Kelly (who started out as a model and still does photoshoots)
Around April 2011 Modeklinea
@Modelineafab started posting pics of Jake with Taylor Swift and Reese Witherspoon and indicated that this was evidence that Jake was dating models

Frankly, I think it's a combination of PR, the JiS fandom who have been very nervous since Tay was kicked to the curb, and other trolls trying to stir stuff up between various blogs.

prairiegirl said...

Lookit all those models. LOLLLLL!! Is this why Jake's physique has gotten so thin because he's been having 24/7 vigorous sex with all these models? LOL. The guy is just worn out and Austin is gettin' nothin.

JK. LOL. That is just so, so funny. So ridiculous when you itemize all the names like that. It's like an evening's ball dance card.

5'9" and Brunette said...

Wow! I thought there were alot of different names floating about so I lost count. What about that @BJPsez who runs all over the Internet asking if Jake's with a tall brunette model? There's a bunch of people desperate to place Jake with a woman. Since he's in NY alot more, models are the go to option.

prairiegirl said...

PR? Thanks for sharing your research and contributions.

This is all just part of a big painted picture that I don't think everyone realizes yet is being put on.

I'm just flabbergasted at something I have seen this morning. You guys will not believe this but will share it later today.

Everyone stay tuned because there is some real enlightenment to come.

Methodical Muser said...

Is this why Jake's physique has gotten so thin

Maybe that's why Jake is eating all that kale and had those 4 bottles of juice?! I just don't know how Jake does it? What a man! So many women, so little time. Like you said yesterday PG, it's so hard to be Jake right now.

Methodical Muser said...

Ted has explained before that his number one job is to write gossip and therefore when he puts something out there that obviously contradicts his BV posts, the audience needs to take it with a grain of salt. It's all part of the biz and if you read what Ted wrote yesterday it's littered with snark.

Fri., Dec. 10, 2010

Dear Ted:
You mentioned that Toothy's sexual preference is very well-known in the business and that he is also very well-known for having famous beards. If the mags and gossip columns (including yours) know these facts, why do they continue to print stories about his current and/or past romances knowing that they are totally fake? Do you and others get paid to publish these or is it a way of keeping his legal team off your back while you continue to out him albeit through his B.V.?
—Totally in to TT, Gay or Straight

Dear Too Technical:
Because, speaking for Team Truth, we love T2 so much we're willing to throw him a bone or two when it comes to whichever gal is by his side that week. It's goss, after all, and that's what the Awful Truth is. We've got no plans to out the dude. That's his own biz.

destiny said...

Yep, Jake still has the same publicist. Sounds like maybe they're trying a more low-key style of bearding, but bearding is what it is all right.

PG, is that Ralphie in your avatar???

prairiegirl said...

Thanks for reminding me about Ted. That's the part that drives me nuts. I like to be able to read something and take it point blank for what it is but you can't with him. At all.

prairiegirl said...

PG, is that Ralphie in your avatar???

LOLLLL!! Yeah, that's Ralphie from Christmas Story.

That's who Jake reminds me of as he walks the streets of London with only a ship porthole to see out of.

Jersey Tom said...

Definitely everything Ted put in his post was based on a few tweets and a picture of the back of a girl with a ponytail. I think he is just mocking the whole thing. He knows that everyone has figured out who Toothy is a long time ago.

Hopefully you are correct Destiny and this is just a PR ploy at bearding without actually having to do it. When I see Jake holding hands with this supermodel then I will accept that nothing has changed.
