Heath Ledger declined to participate in the opening of the Oscars in 2007. According to Jake Gyllenhaal, the actor who died in 2008 did not want to participate because homophobic jokes were written as a result of their film Brokeback Mountain .
"Heath refused," said Gyllenhaal (39) in conversation with Another Man . "I was like, I don't care. I know it's not bad. But Heath said," I'm not kidding - I don't want to be kidding about it, "said the actor.
Gyllenhaal admired this to his colleague, who died twelve years ago at the age of 28 from the consequences of an incorrect drug combination. "He didn't joke about things like that. If someone did, he said," No. This is about love, and that's all it is. "
The pair played the lead roles in Brokeback Mountain in 2005. The film, which revolves around the love that unexpectedly develops between two cowboys, was nominated for the Oscar for the best film.
