    Default Jake Gyllenhaal vows:"I'll always be there for Matilda"


    Jake vows: 'I'll always be there for Matilda'

    Overwhelmed with grief following the death of his best friend Heath Ledger, an emotional Jake Gyllenhaal has reached out to Michelle Williams to help her and daughter Matilda.

    Devastated by the thought of Heath's beloved little girl being raised without knowing her dad, Jake has told Michelle he's willing to step in to a father-figure role.

    "He knew he had to immediately call Michelle and let her know he wanted to play a fatherly role in little Matilda's life," says a source. "He's her godfather and he wants to take that role very seriously."

    What a mighty heart that is Jake Gyllenhaal!

    I knew he had to be a decent guy. Might have to change my avatar to that pic posted by DontMindMe. That is so nice. My fantasy lives on.

    Yay! Jake gets to be a babydaddy after all!. How fucking presumptuous is this guy? He ASSUMES that Michelle Williams wants him to be a 'father figure' to her daughter??? Maybe if the kid's real daddy hadn't killed himself with drugs then Jake wouldn't need to bother.

    It is sad and I find it very sweet of him. I agree with A*O though, Michelle may not want him to be the father figure in her daughter's life.

    The thing is Matilda will hardly be affected by this at all. She's too young to understand, and by the time she's old enough, she wont remember what we're seeing right now and we're so sad about - Heath walking around with Matilda on his shoulders, etc.

    I didn't find it offensive at all - he's offering himself, I don't see him mowing down others to try to get a photo op with Matilda or trying to be her actual father. Offering himself as playing a "fatherly role" is not saying (to me) that he actually wants to replace Heath as her father. And thats what a godfather is, and he was selected by them at Matilda's birth, so that must mean that Michelle thinks highly of him as a person, thats not a small thing. I think its an extremely sweet gesture.

    I don't think Jake sounds presumptuous either. He did say that he called Michelle and offered to help. It's up to Michelle but I'm guessing if she objected to him she wouldn't let him be the kid's godfather.

    Speaking of godfathers, did I read it right that Heath had been one little Damian's army of godparents? (Liz Hurley's kid) Good thing she had 6 more godparents for the kid if so.

    I'm curious too about the Liz Hurley connection. If I'm not mistaken the other godfathers are Hugh Grant (obvious connection), Elton John, Elton's husband (partner? they are married, aren't they?), Denis Leary (they were in some movies together, I think) but I can't really remember any of the others and I didn't remember ever hearing Heath was among them.
