I kid you not.
The restaurant you see is in my building. I had gone into the restaurant for a cup of coffee. I backed up, and guess who it was, Jake.
"Jake, I'm so glad I ran into you, 'literally' I had wanted to talk to you."
"oh Yeah, what's that?"
"well, I run a foundation for children, and I had hoped to share with you my plans to fight abuse/violence and bullying that our kids are having to face."
"Wow, that's really great of you."
"Thanks, but I'd like to send you some information to your agent and publicist."
"Well, I'm just sitting down for lunch with my parents, why don't you join us."
"I'd love to."
Imagine, lunch with the Gyllenhaals!
Many of you want to know where I hang my hat. This is where you will find me.
This is my neighborhood, and building in fact.
On any given day, I'd walk out my door and boom...
FACE to FACE with the best of the best..
I've never imposed, and all have been wonderful.
One New Years Day, I had just flown in from Barcelona, and Hilary was the first to wish me a Happy New Year, and my man Calvin was the second.
In the neighborhood, my protocol is to wait until they get to know you and are familiar. Then along down the road, humanity can set in and these people become actual real people.
WHY do I believe I can build a $35,000,000 dollar children's center? Because, I believe in humanity.
I believe in humanity.
