Heath & Jake gay?!

01.14.2004

In real life we know all too well that Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger are all about the ladies. Jake's rolling in the hay with Kirsten Dunst and Heath bumps uglies with the gorgeous Naomi Watts. But despite their clear hetero lifestyles, the two have signed on to play gay cowboys in BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. Yes, gay cowboys. The project follows...well, two gay cowboys. They meet on a ranch, drive some cattle, tend the land and eventually fall in love. Did I mention they're cowboys? Ang Lee will direct the adaptation of the E. Annie Proulx short story with a script by Pulitzer Prize winner Larry McMurtry. The project could begin filming this summer in Wyoming. The casting of Gyllenhaal and Ledger is significant because it may signal and end to the reluctance of straight actors to take on gay roles. It certainly is bold for two heartthrob-type actors to take on such a role and admire the hell outta these guys for doing it. Or maybe Jake isn't as straight as we think. Take a look at this pic of him and once co-star Dustin Hoffman:

Naomi! Kirsten! If your boys leave you for each other, why don't you swing over to Jersey and I'll give you some shoulders to cry on. Then we'll make our way to the hot tub to relax. No no, I'm just kidding - for the record Jake and Heath aren't gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Jake can be seen next in THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW and Heath in NED KELLY.
