Entertainment weekly Bareback mountain oops Brokeback mountain Jake and Heath talk about makeing love in da movie"Two young, male mainstream movie stars had never engaged in such ravenous make-out sessions or such graphically choreographed sex.

...''Heath and I made love,'' Gyllenhaal says, with an impish grin, ''and they got a baby out of it.''
