Jake Gyllenhaal: baldness, power lunch and Donnie Darko's Tenth birthday

"Matt Damon and Jake Gyllenhaal are proving that bald is indeed beautiful. The actors have both been spotted sporting shaved heads recently, and we can’t say we mind!
Damon showed off his new look while heading to the post office in downtown Vancouver on Wednesday. Is the actor trying to go incognito? PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive recently said that unlike his pal Brad Pitt, he doesn’t cause an international incident when he leaves his house — but this haircut could easily create a stir.
The day before, Gyllenhaal was photographed on location in Los Angeles where he’s shooting End of Watch; the actor shaved his head to play the role of an LAPD officer opposite Michael Peña. Gyllenhaal, who previously rocked a hairless head for the film Jarhead, confidently pulls off the no-locks look. But, who wears — or doesn’t wear — his bald head best?" –Alla Byrne

"Jake Gyllenhaal; Alanis Morissette; Ellen Pompeo; John Salley, the retired N.B.A. player; Orlando Bloom; Patricia and Rosanna Arquette; Rain and Joaquin Phoenix; and cast members of “Glee,” “Lost” and “Mad Men” have all been spotted at the restaurant since it opened in March, according to Ryland Engelhart, an owner. Sacha Baron Cohen, Ashton Kutcher and Forest Whitaker have dined there as well, he said. Angela Bassett, Vincent Gallo and the singer Jason Mraz (an investor who named his recent tour “Gratitude Café”) eat at the bar almost daily". Source:

"Jake Gyllenhaal's claim to fame as a cult icon is already reaching its tenth anniversary, making just about everyone who was aware of the movie when it first came out feel really, really old. To celebrate the occasion, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will be ringing in the anniversary of Donnie Darko with a brand new 10th Anniversary Edition in sparkling high-definition come July 26, 2011.

This new set will be pretty hefty in providing a stellar collection for the cherished and storied film, containing four discs comprised of two DVDs and two Blu-rays, collectible artwork, a Digital Copy, and both theatrical and Director's Cut editions of the film". Source:

Here in the coast we've had a windy wave but hot enough weather which is going to increase, the summer here lasts 4 months!
