Ah, what a guy.

GYLLENHAAL OFFENDS GULF WAR VETERANS

Movie star JAKE GYLLENHAAL has shocked American Gulf War veterans by joking they did nothing but “[ahem]” during their time in the desert in 1991. The cheeky 25-year-old stars in JARHEAD, a movie exposing the US soldiers’ lack of combat in the Middle Eastern conflict. He said, “The US soldiers were sent to the desert for 122 days and they sat in the same tent and did nothing, except a little too much [aheming].”

You know, it’s a proven fact that acting in a movie about a subject that anyone familiar with that subject pans as ridiculous and full of inaccuracies makes you an expert on that subject.
