Jake Gyllenhaal has also talked about being up for the role of Christian!

“It was Ewan, it was Heath, and me,” he told GQ back in 2018. “And we auditioned with many different actresses, it was a long process. But I never met Heath, I only heard about him.”

Jake says that Heath turned down Baz for a role in another movie because he was upset with how the audition process for Moulin Rouge ended.

The two guys ended up starring together in the Oscar-nominated movie Brokeback Mountain and Jake recently discussed a story involving Heath.
