Jake Gyllenhall has reportedly been spotted topping up parking meters to stop the car owners getting a ticket. The ‘Brokeback Mountain’ star fed his spare change into the strangers’ slots when an LA traffic warden was about to ticket them.

A source told America’s Star magazine: “Jake was shopping in Beverly Hills and noticed a few parking meters were about to expire. And he saw that the parking enforcers were standing right there, waiting to issue tickets when they ran out.”

Jake Gyllenhaal ‘s mother, Naomi GyllenhaaL, is Jewish, and for his Bar Mitzvah, he says, “we went to a homeless shelter and we did some work there and then I had the party – the celebration – there.”

The 31-year-old tzadik is believed to be worth around $80 million. That’s a lot of parking meters.
