Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in the Advocate Hall of Fame

So, it was true after all. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger made it to the Advocate Hall of Fame among the heroes for LGBT rights:

“The gay romance told in Brokeback Mountain was so intimate it almost never got made. Agents pushed their actors away from the script. Common wisdom in Hollywood was homophobic and had always assumed roles like these could derail promising careers. That’s why two up-and-coming young actors willing to play the roles of cowboys Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist, who were locked in a secret affair in the Wyoming mountains, were repeatedly called “brave.”

The late Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal were both nominated for Academy Awards for their performances. The movie was a Best Picture nominee. All of them lost while Ang Lee won for Best Director and the screenplay and music took home Oscars.

It’s a testament to what they accomplished, though, that the next time a gay romance comes along with two buzzed about young actors in the lead roles, it’s unlikely the actors will be commended for their courage.

I’m so happy I could burst. I’ll write more about this when I recover.

Cuando viene a visitar a nuestro querido Machupichu, o de repende ya has venido. cuidate tu amigo Dante

      • Estimado gyllen, me gustaria hacerte una pregunta o varias preguntas, una de ellas es la vida de un artista es facil o dificil, como te ha sentido las criticas de tu peliculas que ha actuado, mi opinion que no deje baja la cabeza a pesar de muchas criticas, debe de apoyar a muchas personas necesitadas para que la gente piense lo mejor de ti. A veces es dificil pero tienes que aprender amigo a compartir, ser humilde mas que todo. Espero que te sirva de reflexion. Cuidate tu amigo dante de Peru, cual cosa puede escribirme en mi correo mundaca_dante@hotmail.com, cuidate bye

      • Estimado Dante, I think your English is better than my Spanish if you didn’t get that I’m not Jake, like I told you earlier. This is a blog about him, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t even know it exists. I’m sure he would appreciate your concern but I have no doubts he’s doing just fine. As for the advice for him to be more modest I’m not sure where it comes from, Jake surely doesn’t need to be more so.

        Anyway, thanks for reading and commenting!

  1. hi Gyllencrazy, gracias de todas maneras, pero me encantaria aconsejarle a Jake, si pudiera darle mi recargo a Jake que siga adelante en sus famosas peliculas, y no mire hacia atras, y a la vez que sea solidario con mucha gente que realmente lo necesita. Me encantaria apoyarlo en los momentos dificiles, pero por favor darle mi recargo de parte de su amigo Dante.
