Jake Gyllenhaal & Anna Chlumsky: Words of War Event

Jake Gyllenhaal suits up while attending the Headstrong Project’s First Ever Words of War Event on Wednesday (May 8) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actor was joined at the event by pregnant actress Anna Chlumsky and Zero Hour‘s Anthony Edwards.

Words of War supports comprehensive mental healthcare for military veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. The event featured a presentation of wartime poetry, literature, theater and letters that articulate the exuberance and ideals that drive men to war, the thrill and horror of combat, the difficulties of returning home, and the experience of family members worried about their loved ones at war.

During the evening, Jake read the poem “Dulce et Decorum Est,” by Wilfred Owen and also donated $5,000 towards the cause.

FYI: Anna is wearing a Novis dress.

    He’s still hot. If only he would shave that hideous beard. Why on earth does he want to hide his face? It would also be better to quit smoking.much better for his skin.

    Jake was amazing at the Words of War event. So modest about himself, humble and respectful, and his poetry reading was emotional and full of reverence.
    A total class act.
