Strutting sport shoes

Emile Hirsch at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, on 26th April, 2008.

"To celebrate the release of Speed Racer, the CGI-heavy big-screen adaptation by Larry and Andy Wachowski of The Matrix fame, Puma, Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Productions teamed up to create some limited-edition kicks The Puma Speed Racer shoe is modeled after Puma's Scattista model and features an environmentally-friendly method of construction that uses less waste while providing superior fit and comfort—the shoe's upper is sewn directly onto the sole. The sneak comes in two colorways, one in black, silver and yellow, and another in white and red. The shoes also feature super-reflective Puma and Speed Racer logos.

They won't make you drive any faster but feel free to blame your stylish footwear if you get pulled over and frisked for speeding".

Jake has been seen with different Nike sneakers while out to run.
Although Jake uses to favour his Nikes, while out to dinner at Jar Steakhouse in Los Angeles, on 4th September 2007.Still wearing his then-favorite tan t-shirt, Jake takes a walk in L.A. with "Brothers" director Jim Sheridan, also wearing his dearest pair of Nike sneakers, on 23rd October, 2007.Jake wearing a white pair of Nikes with the red-outlined swoosh and the yellow heel insert in the sole as he approaches his ride in Beverly Hills. That night, Jake was disguised in a gorilla suit for Halloween night, on 31th October.
Usually we see Jake different Nike models, and when he likes one new, the previous pairs don't appear again.Jake on crutchs and wearing Crocs Cayman shoes.Jake Gyllenhaal working on his fitness, wearing New Balance shoes, Nike shorts, and an Adidas shirt Jake went for a good work-up with his personal trainer.
Review: ‘Day After Tomorrow’ is retro cool: Fortunately, [Emmerich] got a cast that knows what to make of lines like “This is so retro it would be cool if it were on purpose.”

That observation (so gloriously appropriate in the context of this movie) is delivered by Jake Gyllenhaal, whose snarky performance as Sam, the somewhat estranged 17-year-old son of a crack climatologist (Dennis Quaid), carries much of the picture past its absurdities. Not the least of these is dad’s heroically crazy quest to reunite with Sam, even while the world is literally falling down around them.

“Unpack the snow shoes”, he tells his loyal assistant (Dash Mihok). “We’re walking from here”. Source: www.msnbc.msn.com

Sherlock Holmes & Watson in love

"It's about to get a whole lot gayer, Watson. According to British tabloid News of the World, Sherlock Holmes, the most famous sleuth of all time, will be portrayed as a homosexual in Guy Ritchie's upcoming film.

Perhaps Robert Downey Jr., who's playing the title role, is hoping to follow in Sean Penn's footsteps by playing a homosexual and being handed the Oscar. Someone should tell him it doesn't always work that way.

In the film, Sherlock Holmes is seen sharing a bed with his beloved Dr. Watson, and also seen wrestling with a close friend. Well, the second thing doesn't seem gay at all! What could be gay about wrestling? That's just what good male friends do, when they're in the mood for a good sweaty, testosterone-fueled romp with a close buddy.
Jude Law plays Watson in the film, and explained, "Guy wanted to make this about the relationship between Watson and Holmes. They're both mean and complicated."

Law and Downey Jr. in love? If there was anyone out there that wasn't all that interested in Sherlock Holmes, the idea of seeing that weird love story play out before their eyes just might be enough to get them to the movie theater. It did wonders for Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal.

We have a feeling that the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson is going to be a whole lot more complicated than them simply being lovers. We sense there will be an ambiguity surrounding the duo's relationship, the likes of which we haven'tseen since Bert and Ernie shared a bedroom on Sesame Street, and those hobbits kept getting all touchy-feely in "The Lord of the Rings." (Never mind. In typing that we realized that there was absolutely nothing ambiguous about the relationship between those characters)". Source: www.actressarchives.com

Maggie with Ramona in NYC

"Maggie Gyllenhaal and her 2-year-old daughter Ramona were seen arriving at Maggie’s off Broadway play Uncle Vanya in NYC on Saturday. Maggie was talking and giggling with Ramona while crossing the street and attempting to shield her from the paparazzi. Dad is fellow actor Peter Sarsgaard.

Maggie recently commented on the challenges of raising a newborn: “I’m not a leave-them-in-their-crib-to-cry kind of girl. Fundamentally, I didn’t find that worked. Everyone’s got their own thing, you know? You can’t tell another person when it’s right to stop breastfeeding, or how to put your kid to sleep. Every child is different.” Source: www.celebritybabyscoop.com

Amanda Seyfried in "Sucker Punch"?

"Is saucer-eyed MAMMA MIA cutie Amanda Seyfried up for some action with the guy behind 300 and WATCHMEN?

She will if filmmaker Zack Snyder gets his way. He's planning to commence work on his psychedelic female-fronted action flick SUCKER PUNCH later this year, and wants the up-and-coming star for one of his leads, so he admits to IESB.The movie (apparently going for a hard-R with an $85 million budget) is described as "ALICE IN WONDERLAND with machineguns", although when Snyder first announced the project a couple years back, he gave a bit more detail. The crazy fantasy is set in the 60s and "follows a girl who is confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man."The increasingly in-demand Seyfried (a long way from "VERONICA MARS" flashback victim) will be seen later this year with Megan Fox in the Diablo Cody-penned horror tale "JENNIFER'S BODY".

Minorities and gayness

-What is the most important thing you learned from Milk?
-Emile Hirsch: "The film, for me, is about understanding other people, having empathy and enabling yourself to walk in another person’s shoes. To understand, as Harvey Milk said, that you have to protect the “us” out there. It’s not just the gay community. It’s the Hispanic community, the black community, the disabled community, seniors. Part of being an American is being all-inclusive. That’s the American spirit. We live in the greatest country in the world and we’re proud of it. This is just an extension of that. Being inclusive. We should not continue the exclusion of people. We’re embracing people because we’re Americans". Source: www.filter-mag.com

"Is Brokeback Mountain a gay film? An interesting question, and for all its political necessity, a somewhat irksome one--it smacks of an essentialism ill-suited to the gender-bending that queerness can inspire. But every minority group is concerned with questions of identity, and the ways in which ever-evolving answers fuel both political solidarity and individual understanding. Ennis embodies that sort of iconic, manful reticence--he's a Marlboro man whose volatile feelings are scarcely contained by his stoicism. When he does speak, his words reveal a tormented tenderness, in sharp contrast to the garrulous, breezy charm of Gyllenhaal's Jack Twist. Jack is the more psychologically accessible of the two, and he's more comfortable with the possibilities of their love. But Ennis is the scarred heart of the film--his fear turns him into a character for whom fighting and fucking often become intertwined, and whose depth of feeling can be measured in his inability to express it.

The is-this-film-gay question, then, arises out of the film's structure itself--Brokeback is preoccupied with Life, in the yawping Whitman-esque dimensions, and life, in its complexities and human attachments. It is utterly unconcerned with lifestyle, which is where Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Will & Grace, Queer As Folk, for better and worse, seem to situate gayness for mass consumption.

The film is gay and not “gay”--it is existentially gay, in its depiction of love between men, if not resonant with how gayness is usually depicted or with queerness as an evolving cultural identity". Source: www.prospect.org

2010 Oscar Candidates?

"The Oscars are still fresh in our memories, but no matter how you cut it they are over and it it is time to move forward as we have a whole new year of films to embark on.

Of course, we are heading into the summer months very soon and they aren’t exactly prime for Oscar pickin’s so we will have to wait a while for a few of these to come out, but I have put together a list of ten films I am going to be keeping my eye on for Oscar’s big prize in 2010. Have any you care to add to the list?

Biutiful (Alejandro González Iñárritu with Javier Bardem)
The Lovely Bones (I heard a small bit of good buzz on Peter Jackson’s next recently)
Broken Embraces (Penelope Cruz won last night and now she’s back with Pedro Almodvar)
Nine (Rob Marshall’s new musical with a fleet of talent along for the ride)
Adam (Max Mayer’s dramedy is already stirring some buzz)
The Ghost (Roman Polanski won’t enter the U.S. but his films will)
A Serious Man (The Coen brothers directing a bunch of unknowns. Perfect!)
Up In the Air (Jason Reitman has George Clooney along for his next)
Whatever Works (Woody Allen and Larry David together just sounds sooooooo right)
The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick with Sean Penn and Brad Pitt)
It’s not a scientific list by any means, just a little bit of fun speculation and below are ten more films that could potentially make some waves.

Julie & Julia (Meryl Streep is in it, can’t ignore it)
Agora (Alejandro Amenabar with Rachel Weisz)
Brothers (Jim Sheridan directs Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal)

I worry Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus will have the sentiment but still be a bit too “out there” for the Academy". Source: www.ropeofsilicon.com

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- At Sunday night's 81st Annual Academy Awards, "Twilight's" vampire teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson was a presenter alongside "Mamma Mia" star Amanda Seyfried .

Access' Billy Bush got the answer on the red carpet, when he asked Kristen's father, John Stewart, why she wasn't presenting with Robert Pattinson .

John responded that Kristen would present at the Oscars, "When it's a great movie, not just one that makes a lot of money."

"Kate Winslet — still teary-eyed and emotional — told friends and well-wishers, "All I need right now is one good nap." She frequently took mini kitten naps as she held court on a couch in a back area — periodically resting her head on her dad's and husband Sam Mendes' shoulders.

Most awkward moment? Ryan Phillippe and girlfriend Abbe Cornish walking — or shall we say sprinting — right past Ryan's ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon, and her current love, Jake Gyllenhaal. No, neither couple stopped to exchange pleasantries. Ouch. This must make child visitation really fun.

Writer Fran Lebowitz, a VF party regular — her feet sprawled on the ottoman — sat on a sofa with her pal Mick Jagger and his posse. Nearby were Dylan McDermott and Tilda Swinton — doing their own thing on the same long couch.

Funniest moment? Mick struggling to carry four champagne glasses while walking back to the couch, then handing him to his longtime gal pal L’Wren Scott and their friends. Then he belted out "Happy Birthday" to a pal while Fran, Dylan and Tilda completely ignored a rock legend singing the Happy Birthday song.

Only in super-jaded Hollywood. Or maybe he sings it every year. Maybe it's like Mick's annual "lampshade on the head" VF party moment.

Oscar winner Sean Penn was being unusually gracious. But he seemed more proud of his son — and introducing him to his pals — than his gold Oscar statue. When Penn was asked what was in his future, he replied, "Speaking out — never stopping."

Did we mention that Penn's pal Mickey Rourke was there to congratulate him on his Oscar win? And Rourke was wearing a cowboy hat. As if he didn't already stand out like a sore thumb.Romantic moments: Jennifer Aniston was glued to boyfriend John Mayer all night".
