Jake Gyllenhaal Remembers Heath Ledger

Jake Gyllenhaal Remembers Heath Ledger

Jake Gyllenhaal stops to grab a cup of coffee in Brentwood, Calif. on Sunday morning.

Earlier this weekend, Jake, 27, was spotted hiking at a Los Angeles park with girlfriend Reese Witherspoon and her two kids, Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4. It was the first sighting of the star since his Brokeback costar Heath Ledger‘s passing.

It was reported last week that Jake was in New Mexico shooting his new film, Brothers. Presumably, he flew back home recently to attend the private memorial service for Heath, which was attended by his close family and friends.

Jake is the godfather of Heath and Michelle Williams 2-year-old daughter Matilda.

Jeez. Here was a nice thread, nothing like asking about his clothes or anything, just hey, this nice guy was at the memorial for his friend and the father of a child he is the godfather to.

And sure enough, the lowlifes come out right off the bat.

If you can’t stand him, go find someplace else to be a loser. YOU aren’t real, you are just a waste of air and space and no one will mourn YOU when you go with so much hate and nothing but bitterness and judgement in you.

Nothing but utter respect. Great guy, great actor. I truly feel for his loss

Being Matilda’s godfather is a big responsibility now that Heath’s passed. Heath didn’t have any brothers and Michelle doesn’t have any brothers.

He looks very sad.

On a lighter note, some people have arrived at the SAG awards, hopefully you’ll post some pics!

So Sad what a great actor to lose… Jake is i’m sure devastated for the loss of his friend, to be chosen to be the Godfather of Heaths child shows that they were close friends and I really don’t think the comments that certain people leave to mock Jake Heath would agree too.. Keep the negative comments to yourself.. RIP Heath now you are getting peace…

Such a sad situation. “Sad” doesn’t even begin to describe it but i couldn’t think of a better word. I hope Jake, as the godfather is going to be there for Matilda and Michelle too.

I know Jake’s going to be there for Matilda. Heath would not have made him Godfather if it weren’t true. I feel so sad that he had to loose his best friend.

I meant lose

Wow this site was going really slow.

the title tells me nothing

I cant even begin the imagine what he’s going through. He must be all over the place. :(

I like how Heaths’ funeral arrangments was handled. Private, family and friends only.

Though he may have been a public figure, we don’t and never will know public figures as their family and close friends know them.

I think his arrangements were handled with dignity. None of the outlandish spectacles we see in funerals these days e.g., Anna Nicole.

It still feels like it was just yesterday

talula, your message says more about yourself than Jake. I think it would be time for you to move on rather than keep littering websites, taking advantage of a terrible loss like the death of Heath to make personal attacks on Jake. Crowl to your friend TC and perhaps start asking HIM concrete evidence of his claims, I think it is about time someone does.

jake is awesome and heath was awesome.
i still can’t believe it happened :( so so so sad!
heath was an amazing actor, and so is jake!

i didnt know jake was the godfather of heath’s kid!! it must have it jake hard to learn about heath’s death.

rip heath

What a sad sad situation. Poor daughter

I feel so sad for Jake. They must have been very close because I couldn’t imagine Heath and Michelle picking someone out of the blue to be Matildas godfather. That’s quite an honor.

Word is that Jake and Heath haven’t been close since the BBM publicity ended. Jake is only being drawn back into this because people have their own fantasies about who he is and about how close he was to Heath.

marlo if that was the case then why would heath have him be the god father if they were not close

his friends dead and he’s off hiking. nice one jake. why dont you sit at home and blub uncontrollably like everyone else. have u no shame jake? heath ledgers death is the event of the century, forget princess diana, this one is where its at, and you’re off f*cking hiking.
i dont care if people mourn in different ways and the calm scenery gives way to a silent reverie of contemplation about your life and where its going and how great your friendship with your best buddy was, going over memory after memory about how great the roll in the hay on that mountain top was. thats not the way you mourn for somebody like heath, because he’s bloody A-list. you should say ‘its soooo sad!’ constantly and blub and blub and blub until you have no snot left and your tear ducts die. thats how ur supposed to mourn him jake u useless, shameless t-urd.
