Give Jake a Break

10/20/2006 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's unclear whether Jake Gyllenhaal was serious or joking when he approached a photog yesterday and shoved the camera out of his face.

Gyllenhall was cruising through the streets of New York with an unidentified female on Thursday when he noticed multiple cameras tracking his every move.

Jake appeared to be taking the constant pursuit in stride, until he suddenly lunges toward the shooter and says, "Seriously man, it's just not funny, it's not funny, get the camera down." The actor then shoves the camera away and walks off.

GGIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK
I can not believe your article states you didn't know if he was serious or just joking.
It is so very obvious that the guy and his female friend were being more than just followed!!!
THEY WERE BEING STAKED MY FRIEND!!!

It was also very obvious they were being more than patient and tolerant knowing that fact as well.

When will you guy's learn that there IS a line and when the line gets crossed, the patience and tolerance with the camera in the face gets annoying?

When your that well known in the first place, your going to be a target of the media, he should possibly be used to the attention by now. However then again, everyone has their own breaking point. Ofcourse if he wanted to avoid this sort of thing he should stick to doing lesser known movies like Donnie Darko rather than huge controversy magnets like Brokeback Mountain.

Some would argue that we pay big money to see these stars in movies, and we should have SOME access to them via papparazzi's pictures. However, I agree with you, Debbie, that they go way too far, sometimes, in obtaining those pictures.

Everyone agrees than. Jake was serious and who wouldn't be pissed? Two words Jake 'pepper' and 'spray'.

Yeah, a picture or two is one thing but being stalked through the streets is seriously out of bound. Damn I wish I were that unidentified female.

These free-lance photographers who stalk--yes, stalk--celebrities deserve to havde the crap beat out of them and their cameras confiscated.

It was the late, great Hollywood/Broadway actor Edward G. Robinson who put fame in its proper perspective: "The ONLY thing we stars owe our public is the best damn possible performance." Translation: Stay out of our private lives, aloing with your damn cameras.

Some people, of course, feed on bein thus "stalked," like pigs at a trough. Let them make known their demented desire. As for those who do NOT wish it, let them have it made known, and leave them alone.

He is trying to impress a woman--obviously on a first date--or in its EARLY stages--so this camera in your face at ALL times has to be annoying!

It cracks me up that people can not separate the fact that he was in a movie playing a gay character but he himself is not gay. You people need to realize there is a difference between a role an actor plays and their real life. That like saying the guy that played King Kong is really an ape. Get real.
