 Jake Gyllenhaal who remembers the pain of losing Heath Ledger

Can you believe it has been eight years since Heath Ledger died from an accidental drug overdose and now Jake Gyllenhaal remembers filming Brokeback Mountain with Ledger.

Compounded by the death of co-star Heath Ledger just two years later from an accidental drug overdose, Jake Gyllenhaal opened up to Entertainment Weekly‘s Jess Cagle.

Here is what Jake had to say about what he learned from the filming of Brokeback Mountain, and the character of Jack Twist.

Said Gyllenhaal:

“What a sad broken-hearted fellow he was….I was deeply sad after that…That whole movie for all of us…there was a real sadness there. And particularly a loneliness in shooting where we were shooting, even with all the beauty around us.”

Gyllenhaal adds:

“Personally, it affected me in ways I can’t necessarily put in words or even would want to talk about publicly but in terms of professionally, I think I was at an age where mortality was not always clear to me….I think you live in this bubble, too, of making films … There are real friends, and there is a real community, but there also is that [new Macklemore new album] where he says,  ‘The curtain closes and nobody notices’ … I think that’s true, and I think that’s okay…

…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 synthesized 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.”
