    i must be the only gay man who does not understand the appeal of this guy. a decent actor – yes, but he kinda looks like a monkey. i’ll take paul rudd instead, thankyouverymuch

  2. Rob says

    Y’know, they’ve been nude together before lest we forget. And Anne’s single right? So is Jake right?

    Maybe… I would not be upset to see two actors I like so much get together.

    Thank you. I saw the EW cover on Dave last night and have been trying to find it all morning. You found it.

    And so much more.

    (And I LOVE Paul Rudd, too.)

    Hey, we’re all entitled to our own taste. I personally never found any of the guys on CW attractive, especially the Gossip Girl guys everyone harps on about but that’s just me. As for Jake I found him attractive after 2005’s Jarhead and of course Brokeback Mountain.

    Sorry, but that clip just screamed I am trying really hard to appear heterosexual.
    Jake is a good actor, and the movie undoubtedly will have success, but I have to agree with EO, he looks like a monkey.

    It’s perfectly Hepburn and Tracy.
    Two deeply closeted actors serving as each others beards in 2010. Pathetic. Maybe they could get together with Anderson Cooper and Oprah and do a “it doesn’t get better if you remain in the closet” video.

    Any gay man who claims that he wouldn’t “take” Jake (or Paul Rudd for that matter) is either lying or delusional or has been spending too much time in Chelsea or West Hollywood. Get over yourselves.

    Jake Gyllenhaal once had promise as an actor (October Sky through Brokeback). But he’s gotten very caught up in the glitz and glam and movie-star-girlfriend routine. And that’s all showing up in the glibness of his work. He’s trading on his looks way too much. (And frankly, I honestly wouldn’t sleep with him — or pudgy Paul Rudd.)

  9. Bobo says

    @FML…okay I stopped laughing so I can write this now. I live in Brooklyn, and I like me a burly bear to be honest, but that aside Jake still looks like a monkey to me.
    Someone mentioned Anderson Cooper & Jake ding a video together, since AC did a segment on Bonobos last night it’s a good possibility….

  10. Zlick says

    Yeah, his roles have been too glam and stupid lately, and this looks to be another – unless he has some comedic talent I’ve yet to see in other films. But, um, he’s never looked better. Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder … but this beholder thinks he’s just about the most beautiful man on the planet. To the extent he looks like a monkey, that’s perfect for the sex monkey lovin’ I want to get into with him Right NoW!

    “The main selling point of Love and Other Drugs appears to be its nudity.” Um, why do you think I want to see it?

    “Jake Gyllenhaal says he’s naked in 65% of it.” And now I’m DEFINITELY going to see it…

  12. crispy says

    I looked up this movie on Wikipedia, and it’s actually sort of an interesting premise… beyond the nudity and standard rom-com tropes.

    It’s set during the mid 90s, and Gyllenhaal plays a pharma rep charged with marketing the new ED drug Viagra. The book it’s based on is supposed to paint a none too flattering picture of the pharmaceutical industry, so it will be interesting how much of that makes it into the movie. It could be the next Up In the Air. Or it could be the next All About Steve.

    I would much rather her be the beard than Taylor Swift.

    And yes, his output has suffered as of late, as he lets his publicist and agency try to make him into something he’s not. Hopefully he’ll smarten up.

    Still, I’m going to see this. All my male friends dig Anne Hathaway and I dig Gyllenhaal, so some eye candy for everyone.

  14. Please says

    Jesus Christ. The comments section on this blog always makes me feel like the beautiful woman on that episode of The Twilight Zone that’s surrounded by doctors and nurses with pig noses calling her ugly.

    “Jesus Christ. The comments section on this blog always makes me feel like the beautiful woman on that episode of The Twilight Zone that’s surrounded by doctors and nurses with pig noses calling her ugly.”

    Seriously.

    More broadly, I would never denigrate someone’s physical appearance unless they had some accompanying personality trait that I found distasteful. There are a lot of men that the majority of gays seem to fawn over that I have zero interest in, but I see no need to go around knocking them, just as I don’t waste time wondering why someone finds bears or weightlifters attractive. There’s something for everyone, and there’s no need to mock appearances, even celebrities.

    “But he’s gotten very caught up in the glitz and glam and movie-star-girlfriend routine.”

    That’s movie-star-BEARD routine, Jake Gyllenhaal is gay.

  17. mike says

    @EO I, too, would take Paul Rudd any day over Gyllenhaal. Paul seems that he would be a blast to be with and very sexual and giving. Jake might be too, but there’s something about Paul….

  18. JJ says

    I still dont get the whole “jake-is-gay” thing. if so, hes done an awful lot of bearding with a lack of “gay” evidence. besides, hes maggies brother – do you really think maggie would have a sibling that stays in the closet so long?

  19. Sam says

    Swoon….seriously Jake is absolutely beautiful to me. I would take him over Ryan Reynolds any day of the week. I prefer that he isn’t “perfect” looking yet is he totally gorgeous.

    More importantly he is a great actor, has a great sense of humor and is charming in interviews. He seems like a good guy.

  20. Jeff S says

    this is a monkey i would totally f@#%…i’d do him fresh off the toilet. he’s the prettiest g-dd-mned monkey since evolution began. whatever jakey wants, jakey gets is my motto. doubt if i’ll see the movie, tho’. after sitting through a painful ‘Prince of Persia’ i’m finding it hard to get motivated to see another one of his films. he can do better

  21. clint says

    Does no one wonder what “naked” means in terms of the movie? Lots of butt and a cock sock, or the Full Monty? That’s what I really want to know.
    And who cares if he’s gay, it’s not like any of ya’ll are gonna be in a situation to hit on him!

  22. Fakers in Hollywood says

    “I still dont get the whole “jake-is-gay” thing. if so, hes done an awful lot of bearding with a lack of “gay” evidence.”

    Nice try, but no one with a brain believes that Jake really dated Reese Witherspoon or that he dates Taylor Swift.

    BTW, do you have any evidence that Jake is straight? No? I thought so.

  23. Ed says

    How anyone here can make a claim that they know for sure what Jake’s sexuality is ridiculous.

    Personally, I think he is a really good actor and I do want to see this movie. Plus he is very hot, imo

  24. Deo says

    “i must be the only gay man who does not understand the appeal of this guy” no you’re not. Put a bag over his head and he’s just another generic actor with a nice looking body. Paul Rudd FTW!!!
