Jake Not Shy About Showing Off His Manly Arm Muscles

Jake Gyllenhaal does not even care how badass he is, that is how badass he is.  He's just rolling up his shirt sleeves and letting the whole world see what God and years of a strict, personalized gym regimen have given him.  Gun show directly ahead:

And yet again here:

The first picture comes from a friend of a friend of TheHappyDogBlog.  (Three steps removed?!  That's practically like we were there!)

The second comes from someone on Twitter who is no doubt really confused as to where all of these hits are coming from that she's getting on this picture. 

Both are evidence that in this digital age of gadgetry and instant communication, we, the public, are giving the paparazzi a run for their money.  (And thank God, am I right?  'Cause I ain't seen no paparazzi pictures of Jake worrying over his tan lines.  Score one for the masses!)

ALSO FOR YOUR MONDAY, there's this bit of YouTube gold, which I am presenting for the consideration of the group.  Of course, all fan encounters with Jake must be approved by me in advance, and as I'm considering the video below this girl's application, I am open to opinions on the matter:

Thanks to Call Me Mo for the YouTube tip!  And huge thanks to HappyDogBlog for tracking down the first picture and getting permission for me to post it!

I know he looks good and all but I'm starting to think that he is somewhat gay...the way he dresses, the way he leans and walk with other guys are kind of...and he hangs out with gay looking dudes...either way i love jake. jake jake jake

Ummm...seriously?? Because there are entire communities devoted to doing nothing but talking about Jake being gay, which I would be more than happy to direct you to. Ted Casablanca has actually built his entire career around that rumor (which he started and which he perpetuates).

But as for here, I'd rather not even broach that subject, and I honestly don't believe that you could possibly make an assessment of a person's sexual preferences based on paparazzi pictures. I'm glad you said it doesn't matter (because it doesn't, nor is it any of our business), and I hope I'm not coming off as too harsh here, but I've seen fansites morph into hate sites over this issue (literally) and I just want to make it clear I'd rather we talk about his arms, and not his sex life. ;)

mmm.....Just think about the things Jakey could do with those guns.....

....Make a sandwich, Make the bed, Clean the toilet, vacumme.....

Call Me Mo June 21, 2010 at 5:10 PM  

Damn. Those arms are a work of art. He must love them too since he's working so hard on maintaining that insane body. Bless him.

When Jake wore the sparkly dress and sang on SNL, he made in look good in part because of the very large biceps. No kidding.

PG - do u know whats up with his dogs? i havent seen him around with them and he used to be so good bringing them everywhere...

thoughts? - happydogblog

AH EXCELLENT QUESTION! Boo the puggle is out of the picture, I'm sorry to say. :( I'm not sure what happened to him, but Jake doesn't have him anymore...I'm guessing he gave him away. :-/

Atticus is a bit more of a mystery, because he still shows up from time to time, but then we'll go months without seeing him. I'm guessing someone else takes care of him while Jake is off filming movies...but I'm basing that guess on absolutely nothing. :) The last time I saw pictures of Atticus was late last year, I believe on the set of Source Code, so I know he's still around. But we certainly don't see him all the time like we used to a few years ago. :(

If anyone has any more info on this, I'd love to know!

WHAT! He gave Boo away?! WHYYYYY. That makes me a little sad. I guess with his schedule and all but he can afford to have people take care of them. I wonder what happened? I would have gladly taken Boo into my house.

Interesting tidbits, thank u PG...i really miss seeing pics of him and his dogs.

Who is this guy he's always with? The one in the car is the same from the Lakers game, no?

Anonymous,  June 21, 2010 at 7:26 PM  

leslie - we're trying to figure that out. when i google about this guy (at the Lakers game) i just get a ton of sites talking about how he was "breaking his neck" to stare at the girls butt. lol

Becky Heineke June 21, 2010 at 7:39 PM  

That dude is a TOTAL MYSTERY.

And HDB, as owner of Boo's MySpace profile (oh yes, I am that insane), I feel your pain. :(

Ok, first of all...u are awesome. That site is killing me! could he give Boo away? I am so shocked at the news.

Anyway, Mystery Male needs to be identified.

Anonymous,  June 21, 2010 at 8:16 PM  

anyway! im assuming he gave Boo away but that might not be the case too. guess we'll never know.

I'm sorry to say but the first picture does not show an adequate amount of arm muscle to be included in such a post titled "Jake Not Shy About Showing Off His Manly Arm Muscles"

Is it me or is Jake getting too in shape here? I liked him better a little of the more slim side...

three steps away?! JGPA should be only one step away, always! Seriously. >(

Becky Heineke June 21, 2010 at 10:58 PM  

AGREED. That was far too many steps removed...

We'll add Jake's overly large arm muscles to the list of complaints that sumi k has to deliver to him when she inevitably randomly runs into him on the street when she goes to LA this week. And we need the scoop behind Boo's disappearance, too! We're very demanding fans. :D

KD,  June 21, 2010 at 11:14 PM  

Boo IS ridiculously cute; Atticus is more my type of dog though.

I just love how he named them after characters from To Kill a Mocking Bird. I love that novel. Similar taste is books scores Jake some extra points in my books (though it seems to be overflowing already!)

Regarding Ted Casablanca's blog on E!News, I find him overly pompous and just far too assuming. Half the time his posts are just biased sh*t - and not in a good way. I remember reading all those blogs on how Jake was actually gay and expecting a baby (?!) Yeah, "WTF" is right. I don't know how people come up with that stuff. Besides, even if Jake was gay, it doesn't make him any less of a man in my own humble opinion. He's still the same sexy, talented, and hilarious actor.

(Though I must admit, in my head, he's dating Anne Hathaway.)

(actually, scratch that. All of us here know that he's actually with Prophecy Girl in disguise! lolol!)

Sam June 22, 2010 at 5:40 AM  

Your right KD, ive been suss for years that PG is actually Reese, and Anne, and Kirsten and any other girl or acquaintance Jake has ever had

Becky Heineke June 22, 2010 at 7:39 AM  

Ha!! My secret is out! :)

No, after sleeping on it, I hope I didn't lose a reader over what I wrote. I dislike Ted Casablanca intensely. He's taken a lot of the fun out of being a Jake fan by dividing the fanbase right down the middle...and there's a lot animosity on both sides. People choose what they believe, cling to it, and are adamant that "their" Jake is the "real" one. In reality, of course, *none of us* know Jake.

I know I kind of made a leap from the original comment about the pictures to this diatribe, but I have bad memories of sexuality discussions, and since all anyone ever does is go around in circles and fight over it, I wanted to say something before the discussion even got started. :)

But I think one thing we can all agree on is that Ted is a paid entertainer. His job is to get people to read his column; it's not exactly investigative journalism. ;)
