Feeling it out

Remember those worksheets from school that were about opposites, or feelings, or comparing two things?  Well here's your homework.

Place the corresponding emotional (Happy or Sad) to each picture

 Fill in the sentence with the word happy or sad.

When Jake touches a girl he looks ..........

When Jake is just near Austin he is .........

You know what is so hilarious? The Paid Troll chased everybody away from the playground next door. He and whoever is the administrator over there now (and I don't think it's the original) together destroyed that place. Yet he continues to come over here because he now has no one to talk to. You made your bed, now lie in it.

prairiegirl said...

I think Jake has found himself now in quite a fix. A very sad fix.

We know it's fake, no need to keep proving that. For me, the big question remains Why? That's what we're seeking to try and figure out.

prairiegirl said...

I think you guys are in for an enlightening and educational treat later this morning that could help us all try to see beyond all the fakery and propaganda. Enough of the sugary Cap'n Crunch, it's time to chew on the Multi Grain Cheerios.

bearding to get a job said...

I think the reason Jake is bearding big is to get work. He lost Miss.Grind. I think he wanted the Cinderella prince role, but they offered him the smaller Rapunzel prince and he didn’t want to do it. I believe “everest” is floating his name to create buzz but it’s smoke, it’ll fade away. The only thing he seems to have is Nightcrawler and we don’t know if it’s for sure yet.
Also, he might want a superheroe movie. They are now casting Batman and Ant-man and his name is getting the rounds for both roles. All the guys who are now in big superheroe/Marvel roles are either married or bearding. So he won’t risk that.

Jake's career said...

I can't believe that Jake is up for any blockbuster superhero role. He couldn't even get Into The Woods. Since the "breakup" with Witherspoon, Jake has consistently done indies, but is trying to create the illusion that he's still in demand for high profile roles. Somehow, I don't think he is. Someone mentioned the other day, that if you look closely, Jake hardly ever works. If you read the articles on the Internet, however, it seems like everyone wants him. I think all this "Jake Gyllenhaal is being considered for this role" is a bunch of hogwash. His publicist is trying to start a buzz about his career that is dead in its tracks. I don't know why Jake jumped into this bearding arrangement all of a sudden. But, it ain't working. Just makes him look miserable and he definitely isn't the least bit convincing.

Not convincing at all said...

If Jake was trying to get some of these superhero roles, wouldn't he be trying a bit harder to be convincing? Because I agree. He and this model beard look as stiff as boards. Uncomfortable and robotic. Going through the motions for the camera shots so they can get on with their real lives.

attending premiere with the beard said...

The event the beard attended yesterday is the premiere of the new Woody Allen film “Blue Jasmine”. It’s Peter Sarsgaard new movie. It’s very likely Jake was there too with the beard but he didn’t walk the red carpet with her.

Peter at the premiere:

The beard at the same event:

oh well said...

She's not a bad looking woman. Actually pretty.

IMHO... said...

On the surface, Alyssa is getting way more out of this PR arrangement than Jake is. Of course, she has farther to climb and so this moderately small bit of publicity is huge for her. A month ago no one knew her name. Now she warrants her own article in the Daily Mail.

(Still I must admit that it appears she does not have any actual modeling work. Other models are constantly traveling from one gig to another.)

It does make me wonder about Jake's motivation. Perhaps as others suggested, he is getting desperate for roles that pay well. He's done quite a few indies lately and they really don't pay well at all. Or maybe he is covering for something. A new baby perhaps. Or a story that he knows might break soon, a fire that he couldn't put out.

the real m said...

Wow, those comparison pictures say it all. Not only does the man smile in Austin's presence, he positively glows. Hightened blood flow from building arousal will do that.

prairiegirl said...

Great job, M&M. Not many take the time to compose a timeline like that but I'm totally convinced that they are a tremendous aid , sometimes just by reminding you of an event that you may have forgotten. To see the dates like that - it's amazing to see how this whole thing rolled out and how quickly the latest bearding arrangement came on.

Something brought all of that on. Something went wrong between the time that Jake and Emily were "bearding" and then when PR brought in Miller.

If Jake was never 100% confirmed for Into the Woods, then how could that musical have been to blame for the bearding?

I don't think it ever was the reason.

But there are two huge glaring events in this timeline that you see which could have caused what we're watching right now:

1. the sighting at the Abbey gay bar.
2. the tweet of Jake with his "niece" even though his real nieces were in NYC at the time

And it was after the 'niece' tweet, that suddenly, Jake was announced to do the Guys' Choice Awards. I remember exactly how that came out of nowhere and he was announced as a late addition to the presenters.

That was not pre-planned.

Not only that, but look at the time elapse between the 'niece' tweet and Miller posting the picture of a Yankee cap. 10 days.

That's enough time to hurriedly shop for the beard and find out that she's available, get her lined up.

Methodical Muser said...

Let me start off by observing that there are lots of interesting tidbits regarding Jake and this new bearding arrangement, once a 2013 chronological is put together. Still, what stood out to me most of all was how Jake seemed to be going along at his normal, ambiguously set snail’s pace (using twitter and tabloid stories to sell the Emily D. fauxmance while making sure that Gossip Cop countered the rumor's legitimacy by shooting down the pairing immediately in early March).

Looking at this series of events, however, something changed dramatically at the end of May, causing business as usual to be tossed out the window. Now, we know that Emily is still being floated as Jake's SI girlfriend as late as May 28th, but for some reason she pretty much vanishes into thin air after that. The question is why?

What we do know is that two significant things occurred after May 28th. From a career standpoint, the Prisoners trailer is released and promotion for the film officially begins on May 30th AND from a personal, closeted standpoint, Jake is seen at the Ritz Carlton with his “niece” on May 31st. We also know that Jake’s people were not happy about Jake being seen by that tweeter and then discussed extensively at OMG because they felt it was necessary for him to be photographed arriving at LAX on Sunday, making sure that a bunch of photos were taken and quickly tacked up onto IHJ so it looked like he just landed in LA on June 2. By mid-month, Jake is then seen in France while A. Miller goes off to Sweden for several days. Right before she leaves, however (on June 18th) Miller posts a pic of a black NY Yankees cap which she is taking with her and someone on her Instagram immediately identifies the sporty chapeau as being Jake Gyllenhaal's. Even though those hats are a dime a dozen. Miller then goes onto to state that she wants to bring NY with her on this trip.

By June 20th Eonline is already following the script and writing about Jake’s new girlfriend, even though she is still in Sweden, and how they recently were seen “making out”. The very next day, Gossip Cop runs an article that confirms the “relationship” almost without qualification…giving a 9 out of 10 possibility that the rumor is true, although neither one is in the country, nor ever seen or associated with one another prior to that. As a result of these timely June tweets and articles, Jake is involved in an uncharacteristically, highly visible bearding campaign that takes off at warped speed with no end in sight, just before Prisoners is about to be marketed for a September roll out, and right after he is seen in California with his "niece".

Methodical Muser said...

Yes, and I agree with you about the gay bar sighting on Mother's Day being a part of the mix and influencing events, PG. That "niece" sighting then turned everything upside down. Coupled with Prisoners being marketed and Jackman letting everyone within hearing distance know that he is not gay, the rapid fire coupling makes a lot of sense.

prairiegirl said...

It's been another day of some great, insightful comments and observations from everyone. We're all contributing to this team effort, everyone is bringing something to the table.

Now maybe we could go lighter on the beard side dish. No need to give her any second or third helpings.

If you're looking also from a Jaustin standpoint, if you study an Austin Nichols search like moi, you notice too that his account has spikes, surges and dips, the timing of which are uncanny with regard to how they relate to what's going on with Jake.

And that is a big Hello that despite what they tried to pull at the Tony's, despite what they tried to pull with Marcus Mumford, and all of the "I'm in Texas" while "I'm in L.A./NYC" shenanigans, it's still visible to me that those two guys are still together.

They're having to do a lot of magic tricks, let off a lot of smoke bombs, but you've still got people making comments on DataLounge and LAgirlie on The Daily Mail who are seeing evidence of these 2 guys together. And that is just confirming the leaks of Jake in L.A. when he shouldn't be, Jake in Austin TX when he never should be (lol) or Austin in London and NYC when he shouldn't be.

And it's this story of Jake & Austin plus Eggroll which makes PR spin like hamsters whenever one of these leaks occurs. They've got a huge story to hide.

Kismet said...

Great timeline.

There was a Page Six article followed by an US Weekly exclusive a few days before the E Online article about Jake / Alyssa on June 20. I think the story first broke on the 17th. Alyssa posted the instagram of the hat in the bag after the coupling had gone public - I distinctly remember that.

Kismet said...

The earliest Page Six post I can find is July 19, however I remember going to Alyssa's instagram right after the story broke and the "Jake Gyllenhaal's hat" comment was not there yet. Instagram appears to not date comments so it is impossible to tell.

Another timeline addition are the twitter and facebook photos of Jake and Alyssa from before they story was public. One of them was from behind walking down the street, and the other set was taken at brunch. These postings were around June... 15/16? A "Who's That Girl?" warm up for the big announcement. There was also a video posted to VINE from that weekend of Jake, Naomi, Alyssa and another man standing outside of Prune waiting for a table.

Kismet said...

Personally, I think the reason for this bearding is bigger than a tweet with the "niece" or a gay bar sighting. Any of those can be easily explained away should they ever come up. One of the reasons why Jake's PR floods twitter with false sightings intentionally is to downgrade any unwanted legit sighting that gets through.

I think it is bigger than that. I do think it could be a second baby. And I don't know if Jake and Austin are still together together (Not many couples could make it through the stress they've put themselves through), but you know what? I could see Jake wanting to have another kid on his own if they're not.

What is really interesting is to put the timeline that MM put up next to the timeline you can glean from Alyssa and real boyfriend Bjorn's Instagrams. They were very much still together until at least early June, and still living together until the end of that month.

Methodical Muser said...

Hey, Kismet. That is true about the "Camilla Belle" Facebook pic, which was floated out there on June 15th and later turned out to be A. Miller. PR's subtle way of introducing the new beard.

The points I'm making about the significance of May 31st, however, are still valid. The fake relationship was ramped up in the middle of June, seemingly out of nowhere. When, as you say in early June she was still with her BF. And, Jake was still being paired at the end of May with Emily.

Regarding the possibility of a second child, I believe that ship has long sailed. By 2012, I think Jake and Austin had completed their family and that's why Jake started to work again on a regular basis.

prairiegirl said...

Where does the idea of that lunch date being Camilla Belle come from? From the person of @TiffyLau, a member of the fake Jake Twitter account's posse. It's such a small world, isn't it?

And speaking of small worlds, did anyone notice that one of the commenters on Miller's instagram photos was a @drunkensttepfather?????? Isn't that something.

what a small world. Like old home week, lol

destiny said...

Jake is not at a level that he can just do nothing for months on end/lead a very private life and still get cast in a film. I think some of this may be done when he can't get work to try and show that he can still garner attention.

destiny said...

One thing that is really interesting to see about that timeline is that this relationship just appeared out of thin air. It was one of the criticisms Kaley and Henry got, that it seemed like he was still with the previous beard, and then all of a sudden he was with Kaley. It really makes it obvious that this was rolled out.

not good attention said...

Except Jake is getting a whole lot of bad publicity from the comments I've seen on the Internet since he's been trying to visually pimp himself as straight Jake again. Reminds me of Taylor Swift days when he was called a pedophile. People are sick to death of his fakery. I guess the question I have is why isn't he working? That's the way to truly get attention. He probably is a father since in the summer the kids would be out of school.

Methodical Muser said...

One thing that is really interesting to see about that timeline is that this relationship just appeared out of thin air.

I agree, Destiny. Reminds me of Kirsten Dunst and Taylor Swift too. The Reeke fauxmance was unveiled a little more believably. They even had a "break up" in the summer of 2007 before the Rome reveal.

prairiegirl said...

I agree, Dest, it appeared right out of nowhere.

Exactly, not good attention. The comments I'm seeing are not good at all.

And why isn't he working if all the offers are true?

Look at this quote from Jake. I knew he had said this at one point:

"I'm most proud of the relationship between me and Michael. That took the most time to build," said Gyllenhaal. "Right now in my life, my focus is my work. It's what matters to me more than anything. The results of that are what the results are. This movie was a different approach to making a movie than I've ever experienced."

End of Watch promo interview from Movieline

I don't know but I'm not exactly seeing that this summer. I'm not arguing about what he's doing in reality which is spending time with his family - I think that's awesome. But don't lie like this, Jake.

Special K said...

M&M, great job with the timeline, and what a tremendous about the time and effort put in to map it out for us. It does laying all out and does jump off the page that this newest fauxmance came out of nowhere.

Another interesting tidbit to add is that around June 7 Alyssa switched agencies from Elite to IMG (IMG is Emily’s agency) Page Six.
IMG withheld the announcement more than one month until a day after the pap pictures with Jake hit the news July 17: IMG Twitter
June 7 switched agencies to Emily’s agency IMG

Page Six said...

It’s Miller time
Posted: 12:03 AM, July 24, 2013

Jake Gyllenhaal was spotted having a cozy Sunday brunch with his latest gal pal, Alyssa Miller, at Sant Ambroeus in the West Village. “They were sitting close to each other, on the same side of a table, and reading the paper together,” a spy said. Perhaps Gyllenhaal was too enamored: He was seen later returning to the restaurant because he’d forgotten his wallet. Page Six asked Miller on Monday night about her “new boyfriend,” and she replied, “I’m very, very happy.”
