Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger Friendship

Jake was so hurt about the untimely death of his best friend, Heath Ledger. He was shooting in New Mexico when the news broke. He left the set and fly back to Los Angeles, they became very close after their torrid action in "Brokeback Mountain" movie which about a love story between a ranch owner played by Ledger and a cowboy played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Jake was so devastated when he learned the news. He is the godfather of Matilda, the two years old daughter of Heath from his girlfriend in the movie that they made.

In the set Jake was there but his spirit is not around. He was the most affected person to what happened to Heath.

The 27-year-old's somber mood is a sharp contrast to the happier times on the set of Brothers. During one intense early prison scene, Gyllenhaal jokingly reached into his pocket and took out a picture of his Brokeback beau to stick on the prison wall. "Like those prisoners put [loved ones] on the wall, but Jake's was Heath Ledger," one set source recalls. "That was hilarious. It was a nice moment."


The movie earned both Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger a nomination in Oscar but the movie which was nominated as best picture did not win instead "Crash" grabbed the award, a story about racial discrimination in modern Los Angeles City played by Sandra Bullock and Matt Dillon.

This is a bittersweet post. Your site (so far from what I have read) is more news-worthy, thoughtful, and less gossipy than the actual TV news sources; nice job.
