“Personally, it affected me in ways I can’t necessarily put in words or even would want to talk about publicly,” the actor told People regarding the star’s sudden death back in 2008. “In terms of professionally, I think I was at an age where mortality was not always clear to me.” “I think you live in this bubble, too, of making films … There are real friends, and there is a real community,” he explained. “There is also that [new Macklemore song] where he says, ‘The curtain closes and nobody notices’ … I think that’s true, and I think that’s okay.” “But I think at the time, I assumed everyone would notice — and they did with Heath dying, but I think it [gave me] the experience of, ‘This is fleeting.’ And none of the attention or synthesized love that comes from the success of a film really matters at all,” Gyllenhaal continued. “What matters is the relationships you make when you make a film, and the people you learn from when you’re preparing for a film.
