Just in case you needed anymore proof that Jake Gyllenhaal is the coolest guy ever, look no further than right here.
The super hottie hit the red carpet and the stage last night (May 8) at the Headstrong Project’s Words of War event in New York City. The event was held to raise money and awareness for improving comprehensive mental-health care for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
Jake was a speaker at the event, where folks were asked to read pieces about military life. The bearded actor graced folks with a reading of “Dulce et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen. But that’s not the only awesome thing he did.
According to E! News, after a few minutes of the the auction to help raise money went by without a bid, Jake pledged a “$5,000 donation to go toward training efforts in EMDR, a specific kind of psychotherapy used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder.” Hot. brilliant and giving.
And he’s just the coolest actor you could ever hope to see walking around the streets of NYC. Guys, I think it’s safe to say that Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing. Launch the gallery to check out all the photo from the event and appreciate the glory.
