Jake Gyllenhaal Has An Anger Problem


I know that I make fun of Jake to some extent. OK, well, I make fun of him a lot. I can honestly say much of that is probably colored by the fact that I have never been a really big fan of his. He just kind of rubs me the wrong way. I have liked some of his roles but I don't go see a movie just because he is in it.

Last night, I was watching TMZ videos. OK, let me stop right there. I often think TMZ video guys, or whoever they are buying the videos from ask the most stupid questions and often do whatever they can to provoke a celebrity into reacting a certain way. I got that. I understand that. You and I have no idea what happened before the camera was turned on or the point where we start watching.

That being said, click here, to see a video of Jake coming back from lunch to continue his jury duty service. Jake was not a friendly guy. And, if he did kick the guy, he did commit battery while being on a jury for a guy accused of battery. You have to love that. I actually think this was the entire clip and all the guy did was try and catch up with Jake to get a comment.

So, then after court, an entirely different cameraman than the one from lunch follows Jake and asks him a question and Jake spits at the guy. I mean wtf kind of behavior is that? I was disgusted when I saw that, and any respect I had for Jake as a person was gone after that. You do not spit on people. I don't care if it was at the guy's feet or whatever. You just don't do it. Click here to see that video.

Pookie said...

lol enty, i feel that way about jack nicholson.

Spitting on someone is probably one of the lowest things you can do.

Awww widdle Toofy Tile doesn't wike the paps. Awwwwww.....poor widdle Toofy.

Mexi said...

Spitting is by far my biggest pet peeve...it is so disgusting and just rude as hell. I'm with enty...what little respect I had for Jake is now gone

slappywhyte said...

he didnt do anything in that first video ... what would you do if some idiot came bum rushing you when you were going into a building ..

jax said...

soomeone please tell me why paps are allowed anywhere near government buildings, courthouses and airports?
sorry post 9/11 and all the paranoia and they get carte blanche? that ain't right.

Yes, even if you have complete contempt for someone (like, say, TMZ), spitting is inexcusable. It does butch him up a little. But it's inexcusable.

I sentence Jakey to an extended filming schedule of Bubble Boy 2.
That should curtail his spitting offenses.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I am not a huge fan of the Gyll either, I don't know why...he's a good actor but not great, and as a person he seems kind of boring. That first video really was nothing. I don't think he kicked the guy on purpose. Most TMZ photographers seem pretty retarded, too, they just want to be famous as well. Case dismissed.

Cheryl said...

Spitting is nasty, nasty, nasty. What will Ted C. say about this?

West End Girl said...

I'd still take him home.

I'm not a fan of Jake, either. And spitting is a very low move, yes. But at the same time, I'd be pretty annoyed at the camera men, too for following me around on a normal day. And it doesn't look like he was having the greatest of days anyway.

What, no fake smiles for paparazzi this time?

I know, I know, Jake is saving them for the next paparazzi photo shoot with the annoying beard.

Bad Fish said...

The other vid shows him kicking backward, and landing, on a pap harassing him.


And Jax I think the only reason they aren't freaking out is because 1. its LA 2. what the pap looks like might have something to do with it 3. its obvious why he's there and that he has a target.

I say that because Seattle ferries, for instance, went on a massive manhunt for two guys who'd been taking repeated ferry trips while video taping all of the workers. You can bet your ass they got shut down. On the other hand, a pap harassing an actor outside of a courthouse...its a little different.

When the pap tried to go inside the courthouse, they shut him down and said no photography.

Molly said...

i'm not a jake fan, but i thought he spit on the ground. his head was down, wasn't it?

i seriously don't know how these celebs don't get soooooooooo sick of the bullshit tactics these assholes pull that they don't get fucking shot on a daily basis.

EgosRested said...

In the spitting video, if you listen, you can hear the spitting twice. The first time is before Jake walks beside the pap.

If the paps are pissed at Jake of for kicking one of the other paparazzi, I wouldn't put it past one to spit in Jake's direction. But, I really can't tell if the pap spits the first time, with Jake spitting in retaliation, or if it's Jake spitting both times?

Exactly. Take my picture, but only when I say so.

This is LOL. [Nicked from "Jake's code of ethics for paps @ 01/29/2009 at 8:04 pm" comment on Just Jared]:

Jake+Reese+kids in public park = OK

Jake+Reese+kids at Seaworld in SF = OK

Jake+Reese+kids in Paris park = OK

Jake+Reese buying coffee/shopping 1,985 times = OK

Jake+Reese sightseeing in Rome = OK

Jake+Reese at the Lakers game = OK

Jake+Reese on a closed movie set on another continent = OK

Jake+Reese eating in restaurants = OK

Jake+Reese+Mom shopping in Farmer's Market = OK

Jake+Reese visiting out of the way places, areas where paps are not known to frequent = OK

BUT...

Jake walking into public building through a public door from a public street = Invasion of privacy.

Miss X said...

Aren't celebs allowed to have bad days? Not that I think what he did is okay.

shakey said...

Jake, Jake, Jake. Stupid thing to do. You can't tell the guy, if you don't mind I'm not in the picture-taking mood, or something? They help your level of celebrity go up, pal, and you know it. If you court the devil, sometimes you have to sleep with him.

canadachick said...

must have been all the residual tension of not being able to hook up with Lloyd Boy Toyed from the Golden Globes...he's just frustrated y'all

Metome said...

You sure are the biggest lying, hypocritical scumbag "Entertainment Lawyer". You are the one that is disgusting and doesn't deserve any respect. Get over yourself because you are the one in a glass house and shouldn't be throwing stones.
