On Tuesday, Jake was seen at the screening for one of the least memorably named movies around, 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' (or something like that). Note, Jake still hasn't found his contact lenses.
'At the party — also attended by a scruffy Jake Gyllenhaal and “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford — the three Olsens “held court at a corner table all night” and toasted Elizabeth’s movie with Bear Flag Wine, an eyewitness told us. Though Elizabeth is quickly entering star territory, she hasn’t mastered one celebri-feat: wearing sky-high heels all night. At the party, she “took off her very high heels and slipped on a pair of moccasins,” our source said. Gyllenhaal, meanwhile, also kept things casual, wearing cargo pants, a long-sleeve tee and glasses to the screening, then skipping the after-party. "I don’t think anyone knew he was there,” the source said. “He clearly did not want to be seen.”'Last night, it was the turn of 'The Skin I Live In', which stars Antonio Banderas. At the same screening was David Lynch.
Should Jake fancy taking in more movies, how about a spot of LIFF?
Bear and Jake
Bear Grylls has been talking some more about Jake's appearance in Man Vs Wild. In this interview from Australia, Bear talks about Jake wanting to go for the full monty (in a manner of speaking) and he includes those immortal words 'What happens on the mountain, stays on the mountain'.
I really wanted to include a link to this interview with Annie Proulx I saw today in which she gives some tips for those who want to write. It includes a mention of arguably her two most famous creations, Jack Twist and Ennis Del Mar.
'Proulx doesn’t mold characters after any real-life people, and when pressed, says only that it’s possible she draws inspiration from what’s happening around her. For example, the characters of Ennis and Jack in “Brokeback Mountain” may have sprung from some unconscious desire to counteract the “John Wayne, right-wing” mindset where she lives in Wyoming that cowboys can only be and act a certain way, she says. “I realize stories I’ve written are contrary to the culture and have a touch of the corrective about them,” she says. “I’m not saying that’s how it is, I’m saying, perhaps.”'

My review, better late than never hopefully, of I Am Number Four is on MovieBrit.
