Jake Gyllenhaal goes head to head with Matt Damon while Pattinson looks on

You know what they say about men with bald heads? Big feet. Proving this ancient adage true, Jake Gyllenhaal visited a police training centre yesterday in LA, 21 July. Please note how I'm not mentioning how shiny Jake's shoes are (police training rubbing off?) or, indeed, how shiny the back of Jake's head is.




As always, Jake is a trendsetter and no sooner had Jake's new look received its first airing than Matt Damon shaved all of his off as well. People is even asking readers to vote between the appeal of Matt's head vs Jake's. At the moment they're head to head.


There were rumours today that The Pale One also made an attempt to follow the new GyllenTrend but he couldn't quite go through with it.


Includes pictures from IHJ, Celebuzz and MTV.

My review of Tree of Life is now on MovieBrit.

Oh Jake., no sunglasses on top of shaved head... Despite of that, Matt Damon can't touch him ;)

Hey Winterbird! Great to see you x And I agree with both of those :)

Those are the shoes he's been wearing since he became a bald police officer :D

I hope he has some lotion on his head so he doesn't get sunburn (his mommy is probably worried too)

Matt can't hold a candle to Jake

Hi Sweetpea - Well I'm pretty sure Jake is a grown man and can take responsibility for his shiny head :D

I didn't know that men with bald heads - have big feet. I only heard about men with big noses :) They have also something else big. Or about men with big swords :)
The shining police shoes are impressive.
I think bald Matt looks very OK, but that's Jake who wins my heart.

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Hi Memon! I may have made that up about the feet :D It's just those boots/shoes look so big! I've gotta say I think the lack of hair suits Matt.

I'm so glad it's Friday. Watching Jaws :D

Jake leaves Matt in the shade I think:) Still not loving this look 100% though.

The Pale One has grown on me of late but not sure what he is trying to achieve here. Is it hair on or hair off!!!

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Great to see you Carol! It's got a way to grow on me too..Shudders at the thought of The Pale One - but that is a peculiar look!

I wonder what the weather is like in LA? Jake is wearing a not too thin jacket. There's a major heatwave in the states now, the fact that Jake is still wearing a jacket in late July in southern California makes me curious.

I am not too worried about the shaved head, he has had the same look previously in the desert so I have confidence that he knows how to take care of his skin. The man is very health conscious.

Men with bald heads...I love them!!! Matt and Robert (in his personal look) are great, but, come on, Jake is the best ever!!!

New actress signed on to play a female cop for End Of Watch - Ugly Betty - America Ferrera.

Nice review of Harry Potter, Kate:)

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Hi Sweetpea - I was wondering about the jacket too. I think it must be cooler in LA :)

He most certainly is, Carlota! I wonder if he gets offered lollipops (*she says showing her age*)

Thanks Mermon!

Have a good day everyone! I am so so glad it's the weekend.

its been in the 90s this past week in la so i was curious why jake was wearing the jacket

there have been several tweets of jake and maggie in hawaii so if true jake must have some time off from filming doubt if he would go just for the weekend

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Hi MK! Maybe wearing the jacket keeps his head warm ;) Or maybe it's disguising End of Watch tattoos!

That would be nice if Jake were in Hawaii but it does seem bad timing for it to be true. I suppose we'll see :)

I've at last magaed to write my review of Tree of Life on MovieBrit

Hello WDW/Kate! ;) Odd gear for Jake. Shoes are his EOW gear-perhaps he's wearing to scuff a little of the bright shine off of them? And perhaps he feels a little nude with the head and facial hair gone. And the hot jacket??? It's deathly hot across all of the USA right now! I too am not a fan of this look either. Can I just have some regular 'ole hair on the head with a occasional side of whiskers and moustache please!!!????

Filming for 2 days and Jake needs a vacation, maybe it was an emergency. But I would be surprise if it was Jake as he and Michael just began shooting their scenes (so I thought).

Or maybe Jake has several fake twitter accounts and he send fake twits out to fool the paps and fans. LOL, now thats a great idea.

I hear Stephen is getting married in Hawaii and Jake and Maggie were spotted there. So maybe Jake is just there for the weekend and will be back to work on EOW by Mon.

Wow! So Jake will have a stepmother? Changes in family life. If this is true, of course.
Have a nice Sunday everybody!

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Good morning everyone! Beautiful day (for a change...) :)

Morning LillynRoses! The look definitely take

Hi there 2:12 :) Well, all of the Jake twitter accounts are fake so who knows what they're all coming up with :Ds some getting used to!

Thanks for the info, Sweetpea :)

Morning Mermon! I forget how close Hawaii is to LA but that's still quite a long way for a flying visit :D That sounds like a pretty good reason though....

Today's a day for grabbing life, I think. What a terrible day yesterday was, with all its news from Oslo of those young lives stolen and also Amy Winehouse.

Have a lovely day today :)

Congrats to Stephen and his new wife Kathleen.

Alot of good things have been happening for Stephen as of late. I just an episode of Hawthrone last week on USA cable network that he directed and he has a movie that just finish or is about to be finished. Stephen is hot, I would have not minded being Jake's stepmother.

The equipment needed by a security guard is, usually, the exact same that a police officer will utilize during duty. It is vital that each guard has the required gear in order to protect themselves and the people around them. The first thing that is an absolute must have for an officer is a Baton.I find this website for Best Boots For Police.If you want you can visit this site.
