 Stars You Didn’t Know Turned Down Brokeback Mountain

Matt Damon is one of the stars that director Gus Van Sant has confirmed passed on a chance to appear in “Brokeback Mountain.” While it is unclear whether Damon was offered the role of Ennis, which Heath Ledger would go on to play, or Jack, inhabited by Jake Gyllenhaal, we are sure that any studio would have been happy to have him sign on to the film. 

At the time, Damon was as hot as could be, with hits like “Good Will Hunting,” “Ocean’s Eleven,” and “The Bourne Identity” under his belt. The actor has never spoken about why he passed on “Brokeback Mountain,” though Damon has played gay before, most recently in HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra,” opposite Michael Douglas as Liberace. Still, he has found himself in a number of small-scale scandals related to his views on homosexuality and gay actors. It is possible that this impacted how willing he was to take on the role of a gay cowboy in 2005.

In 2015, he told The Guardian that he felt actors should remain mum about their sexuality, a statement that many interpreted to be a warning that gay actors should remain in the closet. “Whether you’re straight or gay, people shouldn’t know anything about your sexuality because that’s one of the mysteries that you should be able to play,” said Damon, who is not especially quiet about his wife and their four children. In August 2021, Damon was again charged with homophobic views when he claimed that he had only recently stopped using gay slurs, at the urging of his daughter (he later denied this, per Variety).
