If it seems like Jake Gyllenhaalâ€™s doe-eyed mug has graced every magazine cover over the past two months, itâ€™s because it probably has. Not that we mind, but what about giving Heath Ledger some love?
Well, a solo Heath finally pops up on the cover of a national magazine (and a gay one at that) promoting, what else, Brokeback Mountain. And he has something to reveal.
Straight boy has been a victim of gay harrassment:
Now, you began your career playing a gay role on Australian television, right? [Laughs] Yeah!
How did you deal with the media then? I canâ€™t really remember. I actually remember getting harassed on the street.
So thatâ€™s why heâ€™s so damn convincing in the movie. Heâ€™s working from personal experience!
Heath can now thank homophobic Aussies for helping him prepare for his role on Brokeback.
