On the same day, Jake reflected on his 2005 Oscar winning film Brokeback Mountain.

“It was very successful in many different ways. It gave me the idea that movies can be important, that they do have some sort of political value. It’s an honor to be a part of [that movie] and it was the universe bringing it my way,” Jake shared to Huffington Post.

FYI: Jake is wearing a rag & bone sweater.

    Jake’s lovely but his choice of roles leave much to be desired. He needs to go back to the mainstream.
