Jake Gyllenhaal Recites Poetry And Donates $5,000 To Mental Health!!


OMG Jake Gyllenhaal just made us SWOON even more than usual!! We didn’t even think that was possible!

First off, the guy is beautiful, so that in itself is definitely swoon-worthy. Secondly, he READS POETRY, which by default should make anyone swoon. Thirdly, the man is caring, generous, and knows how to ease tensions in a crowd! Swoons all around!!

At the Headstrong Project’s Words of War event in New York, Jake used his theatrically trained voice to recite Wilfred Owen├óΓé¼Γäós Dulce et Decorum Est (which is a GREAT poem, btw) to the attendees there.


Now, as this was an event with the intention of raising money to help military vets who are in need of mental health care, there was also an auction portion of the event.

That’s when the event had one of those awkward moments where people were supposed to bid on stuff for charity, but nobody did.

Nobody, that is, UNTIL Jake Gyllenhaal stepped up to the plate and dropped 5 G’s in the name of psychotherapy for posttraumatic stress disorder!!

Way to go, Jakey!! Loves it! What a man!!

Check out pics from the event! (below)
