    Jimmy Says:

    Can’t fault this. He has a very unique tone of voice, a voice I think you could recognize immediately without seeing him. It’s not his sister’s voice. Interesting. About his sexuality: two possibilities. Either he is very very picky or else he would be married or else he is gay. Take your pick.

    Jake's a good guy Says:

    “Why the hate?”

    Because he can’t be who they want him to be. Jake’s a good person with a caring heart. And quite frankly people tear down what they can’t have. The cause is cancer, I wish the negativity toward Jake on some of these comments could be harness, we would have a cure for cancer tomorrow. You should be ashamed of yourselves for using this PSA as a way promote your hate for Jake, but I don’t think its hate you have for him. You just can’t have him.

    The names may change on the negative comments

    The sad truth about cancer and other diseases is there is more money is treating them than curing them, no we can’t get rid of cancer because the pharmaceutical companies won’t let us. :(

    drug companies r notorious for reaping $$$ from diseases. reality most companies put loads of $$$ into research that the government does not help with & often interferes with regulations & science getting the work done required. the more gov is into health care & control the less $$$ given into research. st. jude’s is the best place 4 research $$$ to go to.
    i do not know one person who has not been affected by cancer in some manner- be it self, friend, or fam from skin, lung, kidney, stomach, etc. it is a real issue that needs $$$ & support. thank God for jake’s help- he will be a huge voice to influence others!

    Jake is also active for an eyesight/eyeglasses charity and for Global Green, an environment conservation foundation. He has a big heart and he’s a good guy. Not bad to look at either!

    i just think ppl sometimes expect too much from one person so i wanted to point out jake is the real deal. he does what he feels compelled 2 do not what others want or expect.
    poor guy has gotten too battered by media & ppl when he does not deserve 2 b trashed.
    he is so unlike other “big” stars- he is always friendly, not hide his face, not refuse fans pics in his private time (which has 2 b weird) & he acts a bit goofy which is pretty telling of his character.
    def a new fan & watched all his past work many times.

    @grim reaper.
    Thank you for you comments.
    I’m a big fan of JG. Have seen several movie (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Moutain, Rendition, Brothers, Prince of Persia). He did a great job in all of them. I didn’t know that he is involved in so many organisations. I think it is great that he does so much charity/help for other people and especially cancer. Today so many people die because of cancer.

    It is great that he is always friendly and not refuses fans to take pics in his private time. He always has a smile on his face when he is paped by ther media.

    He is a great guy!!

    I am impressive with negative mentality of young people at present even if in Germany where the authorities are good organized has problems with youth

    In LOVE PARADE of Germany there were so much people with drugs, alcool and sex that the people losed the contact with reality!

    The german authorities can’t take the responsability for the 20 death and 400 injuried people.

    The men whose organised in the past the LOVE PARADE in Berlin said that the people don’t follow more the original Idea of this PARADE . He would like to fight for the freedom etc…
