Jake Gyllenhaal has said that working with Ledger on Brokeback Mountainhad a significant impact on his life
. "I think losing Heath and being a part of a family that was something like the movie, the movie we all made together, makes you see that, makes you appreciate that and hopefully moves you away from the things that really don't matter to the things that do," he told NPR
last year. "I'm trying to have relationships that are as real as they possibly can be on a movie set, be close to people because I know that it's precious."
