Jake Gyllenhaal, on being admitted to that exclusive club of Vanity Fair's best dressed yesterday, told the magazine that his favourite charity was New Eyes for the Needy. We have also heard Jake talk over the years about how, 'When I was a kid I had these huge glasses. I once went to a fancy dress as a Crest toothpaste tube with these huge glasses stuck on. That is how I see myself most of the time. A Crest toothpaste tube with bad eyesight.' Jake may now wear contact lenses and the finest sunglasses, but we (especially those of us with four eyes) long to see him in 'proper' glasses. Today, thanks to Annie for sending the picture our way, we can. My heart is mush. I'd recognise that smile anywhere. Source.
One person who's made no secret over the years of his appreciation for Jake Gyllenhaal is John Barrowman, star of Torchwood, the stage, and now Desperate Housewives. Known to many - and me - as Captain Jack, Barrowman has regularly competed with Jake for AfterElton's hottest guy title and the results have never left John without an appreciative word for Jake. John also has the admirable aim of sharing a screen kiss with his idol. Today, John Barrowman suggested that if one actor show play out his life in a movie it should be Jake Gyllenhaal. I would like to think Jake Gyllenhaal would be a good choice'.
The Daily Record has a feature on Jessica Biel today and in it is the suggestion that Nailed is read to finish shooting those final scenes. Fingers crossed.
The lateness of this post is entirely the fault of Oxford's cocktail bars, which couldn't stop themselves from throwing delights in the path of myself and Ruby this evening. And I quote... (I particularly recommend the one on the right)
Cheers! Pictures from links, IHJ and WDW. Thanks again to Annie!
