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.

Dear Jake,
First of all, my condolences to you and Heath's Family. The hardship of losing such a great friend is unimaginable. I have lost quite a bit myself, In regards to your actions I myself would do the same, you have the right to your privacy. I hope that this loss will make you stronger in this type of situations. Heath's in a better place now and soon we all will be joining him, maybe not now but in our time we will. Good luck to you and god bless.

Sincerely yours,
Marvin

Somehow, we the public, can find ourseles grieving for those who are lost. Heath was unique and a wonderful talent. We can grieve that, yet imagine trying to grieve with cameras, reporters and hate facilitating protestors in your face. Leave those who KNEW him and LOVED him some space. AT the VERY LEAST they deserve that. Why does everything have to be such a circus around the death of a celebrity? Give his family and friends some peace people! Everyone grieves differently and who are we to judge what Jake is or isn't doing. He's grieving for his best friend, leave him alone!

The fact that Jake has said NOTHING is very odd. Very odd indeed. Obviously they were not buddies or pals. Ledger liked to carouse at night and drink and drug, things Gyllenhaal doesn't do, as far as we know. So they really had little in common. Still as co-stars of an important movie one would expect Jake to say something through a spokesperson at least. As far as I know he has behaved as if he never knew Ledger from Badger or whatever.

Finally a movie crew protects its own from the media vultures. RE: the Christians who planned to protest Heath's funeral because he played a gay character, they're the same a-holes who protested Matthew Sheppard's funeral. He was the young gay man who was beaten and left to die on a fence. They also protest funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq - they say God killed them because America loves homos. I'm a queer. A big ol' ATHEIST queer!
