It has been over the great Heath Ledger passed away and he will always be remembered for The Dark Knight but also for Brokeback Mountain.

And talking about Brokeback Mountain that starred Jake Gyllenhaal and Ledger; Gyllenhaal said that the late actor refused to present at the 2007 Academy Awards over a joke that involved their respective character's romantic relationship in the film. 

"I mean, I remember they wanted to do an opening for the Academy Awards that year that was sort of joking about it," he explained. "And Heath refused. I was sort of at the time, 'Oh, okay... whatever.' I'm always like: it's all in good fun. And Heath said, 'It's not a joke to me—I don't want to make any jokes about it.'"

Gyllenhaal added, "That's the thing I loved about Heath. He would never joke. Someone wanted to make a joke about the story or whatever, he was like, 'No. This is about love. Like, that's it, man. Like, no.'"

We certainly miss Ledger like always.
