Celebrity Throw Down: Heath vs. Jake

In a press conference for his upcoming movie Candy, Heath Ledger told reporters that George Clooney deserved the Best Supporting Actor award for his work in Syriana.* And this would be fine except that Ledger's Brokeback co-star Jake Gyllenhaal is nominated for the same award. Way to get a friend's back, Heath. You're such a little bitch.

Even IF you thought that Clooney was the more deserving, you don't say it, fool. You ALWAYS choose your friends. Always. It's sort of like when your best friend's ex-boyfriend get a new girlfriend. And even if that new girlfriend looks like Angelina Jolie on her best day, the only thing you are allowed to say when you and your friend spot that new girlfriend at a bar is, "She looks like a fat whore." If you ask me, Heath is just trying to put some more distance between him and Jake and those gay rumors. Not working, Heath. Sorry.

Read about the press conference here.

* I am not sure if this is how you spell Syriana and I can't be bothered to look it up. Serious, politically charged movies bore the shit out of me.

Yeah, sounds like Heath is not only trying to break up with Jake, but also maybe hoping to start things up with George...

A good, if not the best line from Real Time with Bill Mahr tonight: I've had Jake Gyllenhal's naked ass in my face twice this year...and the weird this is I didn't see Jarhead, or Brokback Mountain.
