Jake Gyllenhaal: research for "Brothers" & still thinking of Reese

"Jake Gyllenhaal visited a string of prisons while researching his role in "Brothers", and he was so impressive with the way young offenders are rehabilitated he keeps returning to help out with writing programs. The "Brokeback Mountain" star, who plays a former juvenile delinquent in the film, spent time with convicted drug smugglers and murderers in an effort to determine what life behind bars is like for a teenager.
He tells Fox News, "My character (in Brothers) starts off in jail so I did a lot of research at LA County Jail, Lancaster State Prison and some juvenile state halls.""I came across this incredible writing program for kids that are spending time in juvenile halls, 14-18 year-olds participate in this writing program and that really changed my perspective on the prison system and the people inside it. I have since been back many times to work on this writing program and with these kids. It's so life changing and extraordinary." Source:

"Jake Gyllenhaal hasn’t given up on reconciling with Reese Witherspoon. According to an insider, Reese cooled the romance when she realised she wasn’t ready to take it to the next level – marriage – but now Jake is trying hard to win her back.

Not only did Jake send Reese a $75,000 Christmas present – vintage dinnerware from France for her home in Ojai, California - he’s also sent emails and flowers.
'He isn’t giving up without a fight', a friend adds".

UPDATE: "Gossip Cop is here to bust this bad dish – or dishes, as it were. A source close to Gyllenhaal assures us the vintage dinnerware story is entirely “not true.” Source:

Robert Pattinson is very hygienic

"Robert Pattinson looks more like a grizzly werewolf than vampire on a day out in London with his sister.Edward Cullen would never dream of stepping out of the house in a such a scruffy ensemble.

But then Robert Pattinson has always been at pains to point out that he is very different to the elegant, forever-17-year-old vampire that he plays in the Twilight films.
Pattinson, 23, was spotted leaving his home in Barnes, south-west London with his elder sister Lizzy.

He has been home for the festive period after a busy year shooting in Canada and the U.S. for films including Twilight films New Moon and Eclipse, and Remember Me, which is due out in April.

And, so far, there has been no sign that he has hooked up with his on-screen love Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella, and is rumoured to be his real-life girlfriend.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were spotted with a fan in UK during Box Day, on 28th December, on Isle of Wright, UK.

Lizzy, a singer, used to dress the actor as a girl until he was 12 and introduce him to friends as Claudia.He said: 'Twelve was a turning point as I moved to a mixed school and then I became cool and discovered hair gel.'

"Sure, he looks foul-smelling, but would you believe Twilight star Robert Pattinson is really "incredibly hygienic"? So hygienic, in fact, that he's a threat to himself and his teeth? It's true, claims his Eclipse co-star Bryce Dallas Howard!

When we ran into her at the recent New York premiere of her new movie, the Tennessee Williams–scripted The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond (out today), she told us about her first brush with Rob: "I actually came out to him that I was totally nervous about [meeting him]", said Howard, who will replace Rachelle Lafevre as evil vampire Victoria in next year's Twilight 3.
"He’s such a sweet young man, and there’s such a distinctive difference between him and Edward Cullen. He does such a wonderful job embodying that character, and bringing that character to life. But when you meet him, he’s such a down-to-earth, humble person, you feel bad freaking out around him.""But what does he smell like?" we inquired. "Actually, he’s incredibly hygienic," Howard insisted. "He told me this story that made me crack up. He was like, 'Oh, I have to go to the dentist.' And I was like, 'Oh no, what happened? Just a check-up?' And he was like, 'No, I chipped a tooth.' And I was like, 'How?' And he was like, ‘Flossing’. Who does that? I don’t even floss. So he’s hygienic. Trust me." Source:
