Heath & Jake Censored In Italy: Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal both earned Oscar nominations for their roles as gay cowboys in 2005’s “Brokeback Mountain,” but if you live in Italy and tuned in to Italian state TV channel Rai Due on Monday night, you could only find seemingly straight cowboys hanging out on a mountain – as both love scene between Jake and Heath were removed before broadcast, Britain’s The Guardian reported. Critics noted that a straight love scene was kept intact.
