I guess hope really does spring eternal.
Confession: I did not realize that Jake had already started his television rounds to promote Love & Other Drugs because, er, I haven't been paying that much attention. At all.
So imagine my surprise when I turned on the Today Show this morning and there was Jake, thumb wrestling with Anne Hathaway and talking about being naked all the time. "Fine, I'll watch you," I said to my television, but only because it was already on and the timing was weirdly coincidental.
Then I saw online that he was on David Letterman's show last night. YouTube reaction? Decidedly mixed:
Based on that, I *had* to hit 'play' to see what I was missing...
To sum up, I ignore Jake, whine about losing Prince William, and the next freaking day, Jake is all over late night television talking about his love of running.
Now, Jake? NOW you think it's a good time to start acting like you have a passion for running? Saying things like, "I'm soooo going to run a marathon one day," like you didn't already know that I've been saying for months that that's my next goal. Being all, "I really love running 8 to 10 miles," as if this wasn't my exact ideal distance. Talking about barefoot running like you're hardcore as if it were mere chance that a major reason I haven't been paying attention is because I've been spending all of my spare time selling my damned book starring Jake Gyllenhaal to hardcore runners.
And then he mocked his own beard and hello, it's only one of my great talents in life to mock Jake's beard. Basically he has spent the entire past 24 hours trying to get my attention.
So...well played, Gyllenhaal. Granted it will take more than charming David Letterman and Meredith Vieira to make me really believe you still care about me but...well played nonetheless.
|He wants me.|
