Jake Gyllenhaal has opened up about the death of Heath Ledger, his close friend and Brokeback Mountain co-star, for the first time - and it's a heartbreaking read.
Heath died from cardiac arrest following an overdose of prescription drugs 8 years ago, and Jake was said at the time to be taking it 'harder than most'.
Now he's spoken about the tragedy in an emotional interview with People magazine.
"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. I think you live in this bubble, too, of making films, 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."
