So how appropriate and wonderful, then, that on 2 April Jake will be one of the many to take part in 'A Celebration of Paul Newman's Dream' at the Lincoln Center in NYC. The event will benefit Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall foundation which 'will benefit Paul Newman’s family of camps and programs supporting children facing serious illnesses from around the world'. His widow Joanne Woodward announced: 'This is the legacy of my husband, Paul, and he considered it to be his most important one... It is for that very reason that I find this delicate way, in my best manners, to ask friends and supporters to come together to help raise money – it’s about helping the children who need it.'
There are also details here on how you can buy a ticket, including the $1500 post-performance supper tickets...
Meanwhile, tweets suggest that Jake is still enjoying a quiet and relatively anonymous life in NYC.
Jake's Facial Pet has been getting some more media attention:
Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal's mountain man beard might be long and bushy, but he keeps it combed, expertly trimmed and healthy-looking. When dealing with facial hair at this length, maintenance is key to avoiding an overgrown and unkempt nest full of woodland creatures. But inspite of that the actor carried it on well at this year's award functions like Golden Globe.

This article in the Guardian on why we love stationery caught my attention, as you might see when you give it a read.
