Jake Gyllenhaal ***SLAPS*** Queerty.com With Lawsuit!
Jake Gyllenhaal's lawyers are scouring the Internet, attempting to eradicate a picture of the actor that shows him stretching in his tighty-whitey underwear.
The letter was sent to a few websites, including Queerty.com and Buzzfeed.com. Gyllenhaal's lawyers claim that "as anybody could tell from a cursory examination, this is a fake picture, in which our client's head has been pasted on the body of another person."
Gyllenhaal's pose in the photo is said to resemble an album cover pose of singer Grace Jones. The photo might be a nuisance
to Gyllenhaal, but the legal campaign seems to have backfired. "We're keeping the photo up, since it hasn't been proven fake and because their letter bumped it from 'funny and cute' to 'actually newsworthy,'" reports Queerty.com.
Indeed. Gyllenhaal's lawyers allege the photo violates the actor's legal rights by "portraying him in a false light, violating his right of publicity and constituting a false designation of origin in violation of the Lanham Act."
At least one photo expert believes the image is a fake, so perhaps Gyllenhaal isn't stretching. No, maybe just his lawyers.

Because only a gay man would try to recreate the cover of Grace Jones' Island Life. This sorta makes him look very gay.
|by Anonymous||reply 10||05/20/2011|
WTF is his problem? I wonder what would happen if he knew he is a favorite on many male foot fetish boards - his feet pics are a regular on most of them as a favorite among foot fetishists. %0D %0D This all comes with the territory of wanting everyone to know you and want you. So live with it, Gyllenhaal. And grow the fuck up.

He hasn't got a leg a stand on! Seriously. I am certain this is a fake photo, unless he owns the right to either the head shot or the body shot (that is to say he was responsible for it's creation and has not released it into public commons) he has no say so in where it is published.

r14 he's acting exactly like Tammy. If he had just let it pass, nobody would care except the gays (maybe only even those on gay forums). This way he's just attracting attention to it all.

Goofy. Nobody including queerty ever said it was really him.

Wow - I'm surprised at so much vitriol against this guy. Well, not really. Most of this is because he won't admit he's queer and throw away his life to help the movement. You can tell it's fake immediately, especially if you've studied Jake closely for many hours and days as I have. His thigh/ass demarcation is not nearly that firm. And the vertical line is a common trick used to sell fakes. I coould go on. Who knows, maybe the Queerty will lose this suit, not for the original pic but for the piling on.

Why does he care about some badly photoshopped picture? If every celebrity sued over every manipulated picture on the internet, there wouldn't be enough lawyers in the world to handle all the law suits.

All sorts of celebs have amusing photoshopped photos of them all over the Net. They don't normally sue over it, or take it seriously.

The photo of him hanging by his prehensile tail, grasping fan mail with his furry monkey feet is real, however.

He wouldn't "throw away his life", he'd actually be LIVING his life truthfully and happily. It has nothing to do with any "movement" and everything to do with personal integrity.

He really is pathetic. His films are on my Don't Bother List, along with anything starring Tammy Cruise, Jodie, or Mel.

Does the picture actually damage Gyllenhaal's reputation? Will people skip his films because they think he prances around in tighty-whitey undies? Will this prevent him from doing ads for Calvins?

Can you imagine Clooney doing this? Or even Brad Pitt? God knows HOW many photoshopped images those two inspired.
|by Anonymous||reply 34||05/21/2011|
I think he's striving for a particular image, which he feels he needs to have in order to secure those A-list action hero/leading men roles he so obviously and desperately wants. I wonder how many roles he's lost to the likes of Gosling, who seems to be getting EVERY coveted young leading man part these days.

R29 Sorry to be so long in getting back to you.

52: Crazed, fat fangirl that made that horribly photoshopped pic and tried to obscure his feet by photoshopping socks on the feet and tried to make it difficult to find the original Jake pic on Jake sites by screwing around with the hair, look at the "halo" around it, LOL!! Also photoshopping the watch on his wrist has distorted the hand.%0D %0D All signs point to a Jake slash fanhag because a casual "fan" wouldn't have bothered with that shit.%0D %0D Too bad that she was too busy hiding his feet, etc to realize that they chose the wrong body.%0D %0D PS: the original pic is from a family member of the hag that was posted on his FB so you won't find it on a regular site.

[quote]@Marcus: That%E2%80%99s your decision, but I noticed all throughout this thread that gays were wondering if Jake still supported them. If you, as gays can%E2%80%99t show consideration and respect to a hetero, don%E2%80%99t expect it in return. I can guarantee you that if the sucky way the gays have spoken about and treated Jake is the norm, your progress will be just that much slower. I am frankly disgusted with the way many gays on this forum have acted; I can assure you that I have never in my life treated a gay person in this manner and I will not be returning to this site. I understand your bitterness but you are exacerbating and perpetuating the war AND IT WILL BE YOUR LOSS.
