Brokeback Mountain’s gay cowboy’s Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal have found a way of becoming closer in real life.

Gyllenhaal has been suggested as a possible godfather for Ledger’s six-month-old daughter, Matilda Rose.

The pair reportedly refer to each other as “best friends” since starring together in the award winning film.

Ledger openly expressed his heterosexuality last week through revealing a desire to father around half a dozen children, the Oscar nominated, Australian actor, said six children would be an ideal “magic number.”
