Jake Gyllenhaal is said to be completely devastated by the death of his best pal Heath Ledger.
The actor, who was filming a new movie in New Mexico at the time of Heath's death, was back in L.A. this weekend, seeking comfort from girlfriend Reese Witherspoon. Jake, who is godfather to Heath's daughter Matilda, "is taking this harder than most people," said a source close to the Brokeback Mountain star.
Jake's had to work only a bit on his new film, since getting the news of his friend's death, as the director is doing his best to work around the actor while he grieves. "He was there, but he wasn't with us," a source revealed, of Jake's time at the set. "It was obviously a major trauma. These guys were very close. [Jake] was sitting in the director's chair staring off into space."
Poor Jake. At least he has Reese by his side.
