God, I can't stand that pandering, PC bullshit that straight actors think they have do lest anyone think they're homophobic.

The preview I saw had Lipton asking his typical douchy sexist questions and Jake responding with ridiculously douchy and sexist answers. I expect it from Lipton, but what I saw of Jake disappointed me.
and no, Jake, making 12 year old googly eyes and drooly expressions when asked how it was being naked with Ann Hathaway, does not convince anyone you are straight.

I agree about the googly eyes. I've seen him do several interviews and it seems that's his thing. He does it to the interviewer, the audience, whomever. It's part of his personality.
It's a huge turnoff. He comes across as a big suck up and a phony. I was hoping the Actors Studio interview would be better than that, but maybe Lipton's crushing on him. Ugh.

Lipton never touches on rumors or tabloid personas with actors. Acting teachers will warn students (if asked for advice) that yes being openly gay can be commercially bad if you wanna be the next leading man so I find it hard to believe Lipton bringing this up.
Gyllenhaal brought it up himself...the guy is not doing himself any favors. He should just come out already!

Very crude and over the top. I watch this program a lot. And I have never recalled any of the guests, particularly the neanderthal types (i.e. Sean Penn) saying that "tits and ass" turn them on when Lipton asks them that question.
He really is a child-man, isn't he? And the more he acts like this, the more I'm inclined to agree with fellow DL'ers that he is a raving closet case in deep denial.

I have to be honest. Sometimes I will watch a movie he is in if it is on cable or PPV and nothing else is on. But the phenomenon of Jake Gyllenhaal mystifies me. His movies are boring. Or just not that interesting.
They aren't well made either. Some of them look like they were made for TV movies. I liked Jarhead. That was it. Even Brokeback seems quaintly out of date. In general, I have to question his choices.

I'm going to base this on alleged allegations, but Austin has been known by some as a total control freak with sudden anger issues.

When he's not smiling and trying to get everyone to love him, he can actually be thoughtful and sensitive. I was also surprised at his insecurity, particularly when Lipton asked him what sound he doesn't like, Jake said, "his voice." Wow.
And his humorous pandering for future jobs to the audience before the show wrapped--why do I think he was half-way serious and that he hasn't always had an easy time of scoring jobs?
|by Anonymous||reply 62||09/20/2013|
[quote]He tried way too hard to dispel the gay rumors last night,
Agreed, R60. By using the very graphic "tits & ass" he doesn't want people to just glide over his professions of heterosexuality; instead, he wants to jar you, to shake you out of your concentration on him or on Lipton or on the sounds of the interview, and attend, ATTEND DAMMIT!, to his pronouncement of unassailable straightness. Focusing on the genitals belies his unspoken belief that sexual acts = sexual identity, something that a lot of men struggling with their gayness will believe, that is, "if I don't touch a penis, if I do not have any sex with a man, then I am not gay."
This is the same sort of denial logic that allows a person to say "I'm a straight-acting, gay man" and actually believe it. Whether I am getting any sex on a regular basis or not, I am a gay man the entire time. Not so with this kind of genital-linked, identity definition thinking.
There's one other thing in the mix, thinks me. He could have expressed his sexual-act-denial thinking in a number of ways that would have had similar shock value. Maybe something like "Let's just say the ladies never leave my bed without smiles on their faces..." or what have you. Or even, "I'm in love with women's bodies. Whenever I'm near a woman, I just want to tear her clothes off and make some sparks fly." No, he chose the vulgar "tits & ass" which shows both a reduction of women from human beings into sexual organs, and a strong implication of them being "dirty" or "nasty." (I agree with the poster who wondered why he didn't mention women's vaginas instead of their anuses.)
Overall, I think he is guilty of what prosecutors call "attempting to convince when only asked to convey." Think Jodi Arias here. Not only was it morning on day XYZ that her deceased boyfriend first hit her, it was 10:07 AM, there was roadwork on the highway that she drove on (at precisely 45 mph because her gas was almost gone and she had only $2.52 in her red coin purse). The theory is that "if I am really specific about something, then I must be recalling real events and am not lying." The words we use and how we use them will trip us up every time when we have a secret that we feel must never ever be revealed.

Straight men are attracted to the asses of women, not their anuses. Men like the shape of the ass and rubbing against the ass. They are focusing on the anus, but rather the entire ass and its shape and sexual qualities.
R63, lord, have you never heard that straight men are attracted to the asses of women? They are not focusing on the anuses, but the entire ass.
And 'tits and ass' is an extremely common hetero descriptive phrase. Jake was not displaying that he is gay by mentioning women's asses, you dingbat.

Can you even imagine a gay man saying "I am so flattered that you think I am straight?" It's what you are. It's not a judgeable quality like good hair or long lashes. So by saying that it makes him seem so phoney. If he were truly flattered, he would not be hiding. And if he weren't hiding, he would have a REAL girlfriend by now.

R137, Gyllenhaal obviously isn't just any "someone". He's known as that actor who took it up the ass onscreen, in the climax (to consummate a "forbidden" romance) of a highly buzzed, wide-release feature. To top it off, the saga of Ted C gossip was salacious and enduring enough, to create some public demand, out of what an actor might feel should his own call.
(Judging by how Dataloungers talk about the closet cases in real life, most of us do treat them with kid gloves more than we would jump on celebrities like a wolf pack.)
For an actor marked publicly during a time and in a way avoided by most actors (except porn, limited release like Mysterious Skin, or at least suggested off-screen sex through ellipsis), you have to assume he got reactions ranging from "flattering" to "demeaning". Costars aren't known to joke openly about Quinto and NPH taking it up the ass. Yet a movie enabled that for Gyllenhaal. (Nevermind how presumed straight and gay actors, masculine and femme, are judged differently in any - presumed or immaterial - overlap of private life vs. onscreen.)
We've had posts on Datalounge, from gays thrilled to be mistaken for straight, after pissing off women who couldn't have their advances, unsubtle hints reciprocated. You bet their presume heterosexual power over women, was flattering. Any sexual power is, or Jake G wouldn't even be on DL topic every few months.
And all (non-publicity planted) gossips being equal, it appears Jake G isn't really at the extremities of the Kinsey scale. Or, he is at least further from the ends than commonly assumed - probably simply because he still can; that sexual power again.
Since the typical prime of an acting career is the next 8~10 years in Gyllie's case, it's doubtful he'd dredge up whatever private life that's not supportive of his onscreen work (something his presumed straight competitors already enjoy, unless it's criminal or illegal.)

Well, certain Gyllenhaal fanatics are going to be very pleased by such private outing between two co-stars with absolutely nothing to promote. Slightly disappointed in Rachel McAdams, though, I thought she was beyond bearding, since she typically went for non-Hollywood types.
I wonder what happened with Ruth Wilson? Weren't they just spotted by a "casual" observer dining together in Tulum?

OK so those saying that he's being pandering to the gays by saying he's flattered are completely wrong.
It's like everyone thinking Steve Buscemi is a perverted creep because of all the roles he'splayed so well. The fact that people think he's a creep in real life IS flattering. It is a testament to the quality of his performance.
Jake, whether closeted or straight, waas probably angling for that acknowledgement.

Gossip I heard about him gives me the impression he has trouble "pandering" to anyone. Publicists dread dealing with him. He's very polite, very nice, but only does what He "believes in."
Doesn't takedvice or take PR recommendations well at all. Questions everything, and has a million "suggestions" about how certain things ought to be handled. He doesn't even give his PR team permission to respond to stuff from media.
I dated someone who worked at the agency who handled the PR for a couple of his movies a few years ago. Pain in the ass. But he's a lovely guy.

I did not see the program but isn't it a compliment if you are straight and you played a gay person in a film and people now believe you are gay. Doesn't that compliment your acting skills.
Will from Will in Grace had was convincing in a non-caricature type of way, I can only compliment his acting skills.
BTW from a women's perspective it means you are well groomed, fit and cultured to be considered a gay man if straight. If you are thought to be a lesbian if you are no one, means you are dowdy and unsexy.

R137, Hair and lashes are comparable to sexuality, but are neither as devoid of social meaning as you claim, nor get you as riled up when you equate them. Hair and lashes are modified to cope with ageism, "discipline" black hair in corporate setting. They get fake extension, mascara to be more appealing.
You can judge Gyllenhaal out of habit, or just chuckle along. Not that hard. When you try to root out the gay impostors from straight identification they plainly don't belong/deserve, you're tolerating the gays who pass so well they aren't detected in the first place. You also allow straights to be held to a double-standard: they can change arm-candy at a faster rate, do showmances, use birth or adopted kids to improve their image. Cheat, screw many people who aren't their legal wife or companion in public.
Yet none of these still upset you as intensely as "Duplicity By A Closeted Actor". Straights are still "genuine", because it's their world, their rules (which you impose on impostors like Jake G: measure up, or be blasted out.) Cosby and Allen are just "alleged" by "rumors". They hurt your soul far less than a suspect closetcase, also alleged by rumors and your heteronormative deductive power.
If you're going to ignore a "gay" actor works in a straight-dominant market catering to straight-dominant audience - who in turn fund the "non-low budget" movies you prefer to watch...Where's the outrage that most movies are about straight white people, driven by the viewpoint and action of straight white men? Did the investors, distributors, & promoters refused to board American Sniper, until Bradley Cooper came clean with America and the World about his sexual history?
My humble suggestion is to see stories and people working in entertainment, as a mirror. You can decry Gyllenhaal's inhumanity in slamming you repeatedly with Boldfaced! Lies!, but chances are he settled into a routine where some aspects he can change (how fast and loose, homo-affirming he plays a role/plot in a movie), while others affect the domestic and overseas partners he's in business relationships with (which isn't forever - or speed it up praying for his career decline, or hire a PI to expose his private business?)
He seems well aware of his situation, which you can try to tolerate as one of the many ways people cope as they see best fit -- even if you're convinced you know better, and can manage far better for them in their shoes:
From Enemy interview in March 2015:
I think we’re all presenting different things at different times. You’re not the same here as you are if you go home and you go back to your loved ones or your family or you’re by yourself. We’re not always the same person. You go to cocktail party or to something else, you are going to change who you are. It’s inevitable. We are animals, you know what I mean? I think that’s what’s behind that. What is authenticity? What is our true self? Who is this guy, really? Is he one person or is he two people?
Live and let live, unless he's directly harming your liberties. You'll be less disappointed by not getting what you feel you're owed, that way.

He broke up with Alyssa Miller to focus on his training for Southpaw. Apparently he was working out 6 hours a day. It definitely shows! I wonder if now that the filming is done he will get back with her. They seem really into each other. With Rachel and Ruth it's pretty clear they are just friends.
His body for Southpaw is insane. He worked really hard so I hope he gets at least an Oscar nomination.

R173 He's got a lot of movies coming out this year:
-Demolition - it was directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, whose last 2 films went to get two Oscars, for Jake's buddy Matthew McConaughey and Jaredo Leto, and an Oscar nomination for his ex Reese Witherspoon. Jake is almost for sure getting at the very least a nomination for this movie... after being snubbed so badly this year, no way is he missing out. The movie screened last night in fact and Jake's performance was praised. He's coming for that Oscar!
-Southpaw - doesn't seem very Academy friendly but he went all out for this role, working out like crazy and pretty much dedicating himself 100% for the role that he ended up breaking up with his girlfriend. His performance is bound to get lots of praise and it's the type of movie that will appeal to the public, especially straight man. Boxing + hot wife played by a hot actress he may be dating + gritty thriller... a classic movie for all the bros out there. I foresee this movie performing really well at the box office. The Internet has been talking a lot about Jake's crazy transformation, even body building and gentlemen websites.
-Everest - an ensemble movie but the previews that were shown Cinema Con were very well received.
He's got that Tom Ford movie in the works as well and another movie where he plays a drug dealer in the works, plus the fact that he is very likely to get a Tony nomination next week. He's finally getting all the success he deserves. He's one of the most interesting actors working out today.

So how come Gyllenhaal is a closet case coward, R178, when no man has ever come forward and said he's had sex with him.
Yet male porn stars who have sucked more dick and been fucked up the ass by other men, on camera for all to see, still get to claim they're straight, and there are huge numbers of queens who will attest to their "straightness." And I'll add many of these closet cases most rapid supporters post here.
Seems like a double standard to me.

Seen him with lover in the South of France several times in the oughts. I am calling him a closet case, yep. Maybe he's not a tramp, doesn't sleep around, and his exes respect his choice to stay in the closet.
I don't get your comparison to gay for pay porn actors.. I have nothing to say about gay for pay porn actors.. I don't need to call them gay, or straight, or whatever. And they are sex workers. And they can call themselves whatever they want. What have their lives got to do with a Hollywood leading man deciding to stay in the closet?
JG can obviously call himself whatever he wants. He's says he's straight. Fine. But I have the impression he's gay and closeted.

Poor Jakey missed his Tony nomination.
Also, Lainey is not even pretending that she's a PR shrill for him anymore, is she? At no point was Jakey a sure bet to get a Tony nomination over Bradley, he was at best 5th/6th on most people's predictions, whereas Bradley was second to Alex Sharp all the time. Also, no way in hell is Jake getting nominated for Southpaw. No way. His best shot at a nomination is with Demolition and even then, watch Bradley get in instead of Jakey.

He's starting promo for Southpaw already.
Apparently Antoine Fuqua's gonna keep rehashing his "Jake was so committed to the role that he broke up with his girlfriend" anecdote throughout the movie promo.
Harvey Weinstein promised he's gonna get Jake an Oscar nomination with Southpaw. I think it can happen if it ends up being a hit and with the boxing mania that's hit the US, I think Jake's gonna have a huge 2015.
He talks throughout the interview about how much he's changed since the days of his awful romantic comedies/Prince of Persia/Taylor Swift and how that was a misstep because he was listening to other people. He sounds very genuine in the interview and it seems like he's living more honestly since he stopped trying to be an action star. Good job, Jake!
