Jake Gyllenhaal is the Godfather

*jake_gyllenhaal_thumb3.jpgBrokeback Mountain co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger have become so close that Ledger has asked Gyllenhaal to be godfather to his 4-month-old daughter Matilda. Gyllenhaal credits the movie with building a unique bond between them. He says, “Heath and I are best friends now — making the film was very intense for us. I’m actually godfather to Heath’s daughter Matilda, which is an amazing honor. Almost as amazing as the night he covered me in warm cocoa and called me Mr. Pickles. I think he might have been drunk.”

Ok, I may have doctored those last two lines a bit. This is a nice, heartwarming story, so I don’t really have much to say. But I’ll be curious to see little Matilda’s reaction to all this as she grows up. In most circumstances, stumbling across a DVD of Dad having sex with your godfather can lead to some awkward questions. Particularly if they’re both dressed as mimes. And weeping. And using your bed. And you get the DVD for Christmas.
