Jake Gyllenhaal Opens Up About Heath Ledger’s Death

Jake Gyllenhaal has opened up about the death of his good mate Heath Ledger, eight years after he was found dead in New York.

In an interview with PeopleJake said, “it affected me in ways I can’t necessarily put in words”.

“Personally, it affected me in ways I can’t necessarily put in words or even would want to talk about publicly,” he said. “In terms of professionally, I think I was at an age where mortality was not always clear to me.”

“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 OK. 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 synthesised 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.”
