Jake Gyllenhaal's Random Act of Kindness

We enjoyed watching Jake Gyllenhaal look for the missing matzo during Passover last week — and then we learned that he is even more of a mensch than we knew.

The handsome 31-year-old actor has been known to be philanthropic, giving to a variety of causes from the Afghan Relief Organization to Variety to Global Green, but apparently his magnanimity extends even to owners of parked cars. In an act of random kindness, Gyllenhaal recently put money into Beverly Hills shopping district parking meters that were about to expire.
