Jake Gyllenhaal Still Thinks About Heath Ledger

Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 10.45.04 AM

Aww…

It’s been eight years since Heath Ledger died, but the actor’s death still impacts the Hollywood community, including Jake Gyllenhaal, his costar in the 2005 film Brokeback Mountain. The dude spoke up on it in an interview with People. Here are the highlights:

“Personally, it affected me in ways I can’t necessarily put in words or even would want to talk about publicly,” Gyllenhaal, 35, told editorial director Jess Cagle in the latest edition of The Jess Cagle Interview. “In terms of professionally, I think I was at an age where mortality was not always clear to me.”

Gyllenhaal had just turned 27 when Ledger died from accidental prescription drug intoxication.

“I think you live in this bubble, too, of making films … There are real friends, and there is a real community,” he said of the experience. “There is also that [new Macklemore song] where he says, ‘The curtain closes and nobody notices’ … I think that’s true, and I think that’s okay. But I think at the time, I assumed everyone would notice – and they did with Heath dying, but I think it [gave me] the experience of, ‘This is fleeting.’ And none of the attention or synthesized love that comes from the success of a film really matters at all. What matters is the relationships you make when you make a film, and the people you learn from when you’re preparing for a film. That changed a lot for me.”

“We were super young,” Gyllenhaal said. “We had no idea what the movie was going to become.”

Ledger went on to date costar Michelle Williams, and have a kid with her. Both got Oscar noms and the film was, essentially, a huge thing for the young actors to be a part of.

Very sad. Heath Ledger would have had an amazing career.

Onward and upward for Michelle Williams and family!

The actress has officially sold her luxurious six bedroom brownstone she bought in 2005 for $7.5 million dollars. This wasn’t just any house, either, it was the house she bought with her late husband Heath Ledger, so it must have had a lot of memories, both good and bad.  Most notably, however, was that the actress raised her daughter, Matilda Ledger, in the home for nine years!

According to PerezHilton, the actress recently decided to settle in Los Angeles, shedding her Brooklyn life for the west coast.  Time for new memories…

Lindsay Lohan tweets on the 5th anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death.

Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death in NYC. I didn’t cover it yesterday, because – I didn’t really know what to say. I remember his death really vividly. I was in the first couple years of working on this site, and when I heard, I just broke down. No actual tears, but it was such a sad, tragic feeling. He was so incredibly talented. I was mourning over all the work we’d never get to see from him. His career would have taken off and been huge – of course.

Anyway, Lindsay Lohan tweeted in memory of Heath.

I find it very odd that she put herself in the same category of the child Heath left behind, Matilda. What, Lindsay is so close with Matilda that she calls her “Matty”? Huh? I feel like it’s disrespectful to his daughter, his family, and Michelle Williams, the mother of his child.

Lindsay once said that Heath was the “love of her life” and Michael Lohan apparently has a taped conversation where he discussed with Dina how messed up Lindsay is, and it’s all because of Heath’s death.

Either way, she could have just said RIP HL….

Michelle Williams’ hair tribute to Heath Ledger

Although there aren’t many fans of Michelle William’s short do, she is keeping it as a memorial to Heath Ledger, her late ex -boyfriend and the father of her daughter, Matilda.

The actress revealed to UK Elle magazine: “What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon. I’ve really grown into it, I feel like myself with short hair. And it’s been a really long time since I’ve had long hair, five years. Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends,” jokes the 31 year-old. “Straight men across the board are not into this hair!”

“I cut it for the one straight man [Ledger] who has ever like short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”

What do you guys think? Love it or hate it?
