Where is Jake Gyllenhaal?

1/23/2008 8:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jake GyllenhaalJake Gyllenhaal has yet to be seen or heard from since the death of his close friend, Heath Ledger -- and people on the set of his new film are working hard to keep it that way.

Gyllenhaal is in New Mexico, currently filming his new movie, "Brothers." We're told there are no plans to shut down production, but Jake is very upset and doesn't want to talk to the media -- so the set has been closed to non-crew members and extra security has been hired.

Jake is the godfather to Heath's daughter, Matilda Rose.

I was wondering about Jake and how he was dealing with all this.
Please, TMZ, I know it's your job, but please PLEASE leave Matilda, Jake and Michelle alone for now.
They must be devastated.
Jake said he and Heath made Brokeback and became best friends. Just let him grieve his friend and try to go on.

Cluck You PETA    

I have been wondering where Jake has been since yesterday. I did not expect him to comment to the media but I did think he would be on the first plane back to NY. That's where I would be if my best friend just died. I wouldn't still be at work, that's for sure.

Makes me really wonder how "close" they really were.

Leave him alone too. Let him be a godfather to that child and leave these people to grieve in peace. Please go back to stalking Britney

If I lost a friend close enough to me to be my child's godparent, I would be beside myself. That would be a a nightmare I don't even want to think about................

Leave the man be. He will speak when and if he chooses to.

Hounding him and hunting him down like prey is beyond disgusting.

THE AUSTRALIAN IS REPORTING SOME KIND OF MEMORIAL IS GOING TO HAPPEN AT THE END OF THE WEEK IN LOS ANGELES..............



The Australian newspaper is reporting that Heath's father, Kim, will be attending an event in Los Angeles at the end of the week with Aussie model Gemma Ward, the woman last romantically linked to Heath. It's believed the event will be a memorial service for the star. Gemma's mother, Claire, told the newspaper that her daughter is currently in New York.

Meanwhile, the 20-year-old's sister, Sophie (who's also a model), told the West Australian newspaper that Heath had sworn off alcohol at Christmastime amid a bout of anxiety over being unable to see his daughter Matilda, 2.

Sophie says that Heath was distressed over his split with Michelle Williams and being away from Matilda. He was "quite upset because he couldn't see his daughter as much as he'd like to," she said. "He was traveling so much and I think he was just frustrated with it all."
