At the auction, 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'.
From the Wall Street Journal: 'Actor Jake Gyllenhaal, a friend of the Headstrong Project's chairman and executive director Zach Iscol, read a poem by World War I poet Wilfred Owen, after two other veterans, Gerardo Mena and Garrett Anderson, read their own work. "If I spoke for myself, it would do no service," said Mr. Gyllenhaal. "I'm an actor."'
Photos have also emerged of Jake at the Met Gala which took place on 6 May, including more photos of Jake with good friend Marcus Mumford. Vanity Fair has a funny little detail about last Sunday's Lucille Lortel Awards. '“Don’t cry when you lose!” a playful America Ferrera shouted to fellow nominee Jake Gyllenhaal moments before taking her seat'.
Thanks very much to IHJ for all these lovely pictures and especially for that wonderful video. There are lots more there from Jake's busy week.
