Blue Eyes in New York – Jake attended the Celebration of Paul Newman’s Dream event
Thanks to Gyllenbabble for these two videos of Jake on stage yesterday
Another footage (you can see mum Naomi too)
Have a look at this other interview/footage from yesterday’s event! (I love summer camps too, Jake!)
As anticipated here and after what seems like years since, finally the day has come when we get to see Jake at a public event again. After the Berlinale, in fact – when was that again? sure seems like a century ago – and aside of the thrilling parenthesis of that addicting music video, Jake kept a low profile and has been randomly spotted in New York dining and cycling (not at the same time).
“Last night, a panoply of stars took the stage to honor Newman. Singers Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Trisha Yearwood, Josh Groban and NaTasha Yvette Williams each performed two songs, interspersed with bits by Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey and Jake Gyllenhaal. Donors got their money’s worth, especially with Simon giving a reworked and brilliant “Sound of Silence,” Costello doing a lesser known masterpiece, “All this Useless Beauty,” and Yearwood rocking an emotional, anthemic “Climb” with some of the camp kids on harmony. (Yearwood is really a underappreciated star.) The music was all live, and reverberated through the hallowed Hall.”
So it’s a joy tonight to see these pictures
and an even bigger joy to read tweets all around sharing basically the same topic: Jake’s kindness. Which is not new to us fans but it sure is good to see how the rest of the world also notices that about him.
After a very long day of work, nothing beats having Jake Gyllenhaal hold the door open for you and say “after you”.
I locked eyes with Jake Gyllenhaal in the hallway. He has a great smile and his eyes r the color of the sky on a clear day.
Also, a video has just appeared on YouTube, so now we also get to hear him talk about this experience. Lots more will follow, I’m sure:
You’ll have probably noticed how I didn’t mention THE BEARD (I know I’m alone in not hating it at all). I prefer to let Jake talk about it in this interview with Conan O’Brien of last year:
Stay tuned then, more about this event will follow!
