Jake Gyllenhaal on Heath Ledger: 'I Miss Him as a Human Being'
Jake Gyllenhaal suits up as he heads inside a building for his appearance on The Daily Show on Wednesday (July 22) in New York City.
Earlier in the day, the 34-year-old Southpaw actor was also spotted stopping by SiriusXM studios.
Jake recently opened up about his late friend and Brokeback Mountain co-star Heath Ledger.
“I miss him as a human being and I miss working with him and what an unfortunate thing it is that we won’t be able to see the beauty of his expression,” Jake told NPR.
He continued, “I’m trying to be present where I am. I’m trying to have relationships that are as real as they possibly can be on a movie set, be close to people because I know that it’s precious. And I know, not only can this career end in a very short period of time and this or that can happen, but also that life is precious. I think losing Heath and being a part of a family that was something like the movie, that movie we all made together, makes you see that, makes you appreciate that and hopefully moves you away from the things that really don’t matter to the things that do.”
