I will admit that most of Jake Gyllenhaal's participation in this video clip is the back of his head, but it's still pretty cute (I mean, if you think a kid acting like he just watched his mother die is cute). What I'm most impressed by is the fact that Robin Williams manages to be on screen for three minutes without acting like a completly coked-out lunatic.
And for you real Jake Gyllenhaal fans out there who feel slightly creepy about your Jake-based fantasies after seeing that video, here are some shots of him working out with Ryan Phillipe and a personal trainer. Nothing wrong with a trio of dudes working up a good sweat together.
This weekend marked the biggest event of the year (if you live for MTV Award shows, which you may, no judgment), the weekend of the MTV VMAs. MollyGood won't ruin the results (hint: they're already on the MTV website, hint #2: the people who won the awards were the ones who attended the show).
On a whole, people didn't dress like complete assholes, with the obvious exception of Kate Beckinsale. And Jessica Alba's head didn't explode from having to read and occasionally string together original sentences for an entire evening. It's a VMA miracle.
There will be more pictures, of course.
The unannounced winner for Best Backhanded Compliment of the Evening went to Christina Aguilera, for her stunning assessment of Britney Spears according to E!:
"It's a shame Britney doesn't go to any shows or awards anymore, because they are so much fun, even if you're not nominated for things, I miss seeing how hot she looked on red carpets and seeing her at awards and shows was the only times we really had time to catch up with each other because we're both so busy".
This should be read as, Sorry your life sucks, Bitch. Looks like you got the short end of the life stick. I look hotter than you used to, and now you're just a cow. I feel sorry for you, your husband, and your spawn. Size 26 misses you!
Stay tuned for MollyGood exclusive photos from the event. VMAtastic Monday has just begun.
Most of us who live in the normal world understand that one date does not a couple make. Unfortunately, for the rabid celebrity couple hounds (see, I conveniently leave myself out of that group) Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman are picking out china after their afternoon get together this past weekend. The two of them together would be as precious as a baby panda, but let???s not jump the gun here.
Something about this just feels staged to me:
[Jake] sat, fidgeted and frequently checked the time (inset), but brightened up with a grin when he spotted his date. They hugged, kissed, then strolled along until arriving for an early dinner at The Spotted Pig on West 11th Street, according to eyewitnesses.
Inside, the Michelin-starred gastro-pub, Gyllenhaal must have surprised Portman with the bouquet. She left the restaurant smiling and holding them - and him.
"The guy looks like he's in love," said one witness to the wooing.
Jake Gyllenhaal has never struck me as someone who wants a lot of tabloid attention. In fact, both he and Natalie Portman manage to lay pretty low. So, why, pray tell, would the two of them, out of the hundreds of restaurants in Manhattan, choose to eat at one of the three or four that is constantly full of celebrties. Every day there are sightings at The Spotted Pig. Clearly there are paparazzi staked out near the restaurant. Sure, the food is great, but you're in f-ing New York, there are always amazing options.
If they didn???t want to be seen, photographed, and talked about, Gyllenhaal and Portman would have eaten somewhere else. Ham it up for the tabloids, you two, but I better not hear any complaints about the rumors, because you planted them on purpose.
Ooooh, and now I???m supposed to let my imagination assume that the next day when Jake got together with his sister, Maggie, and her boyfriend Peter Saarsgard, pictured here, he wanted to get advice on what to do next with Natalie? I refuse to assume he is gushing about his date. Refuse, you hear. Okay fine, it would be pretty freaking cute if he was. Damn you, Hollywood, damn you.
??? Jake Gyllenhaal manages to look entirely uncreepy and pretty endearing touching a stranger???s young son. [JustJared]
??? Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are fighting; I guess her brainwashing wasn???t entirely successful. [The Superficial]
??? Just as the sun will rise every morning, Bai Ling will provide a nip-slip at every possible moment. [Egotastic]
??? Julia Stiles is on the cover of Marie Claire, which is almost as good as Vogue, right? Right? [IDon???tLikeYouInThatWay]
??? Goldie Hawn proves that beauty is fleeting. Very, very fleeting. [Hollywood Rag]
??? Sienna Miller and Jude Law are back together. I'm all for it if it means they'll both disappear. [A Socialite's Life]
It's been a good couple of years for Jake Gyllenhaal. He went from relatively obscure indie actor to full-blown leading man, somehow winning everyone's respect along the way. Hell, even the funniest mom in America want's into Jake's pants. I must admit that I missed Nick at Nite's entire Search for the Funniest Mom in America, and not because it sounds like it would be a fairly successful torture technique, but because I had no idea it existed. Apparently, however, the winner has been announced, a Muslim woman from Texas whose prize is a TV show about her life, and she wants a certain someone to play her leading man.
She would be the star, of course, but the TV deal would bring America's newly crowned "funniest mom" a new set of co-stars.
"Jake Gyllenhaal," she said, naming her choice for a new hubby, the dashing 25-year-old "Brokeback Mountain" movie star.
"So? I can play 25," said the 36-year-old mother of two. "Shut up!"
Mmm, sounds likely. So, can you tell this is mostly just an excuse to post pictures of Jake buying cupcakes?
