The Brokeback Mountain co-stars reunited for the film about a Viagra salesman and had to strip off to shoot a number of saucy scenes.
And to help them portray a lustful couple, the two actors discussed their own romantic histories and watched old movies to decide how best to film the intimate moments.
Hathaway tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "We had to go to a lot of emotionally and physically vulnerable places and we spent a lot of time rehearsing. We watched a lot of love scenes that have been done throughout film history and talked about which ones we liked and which ones we didn't.
"We talked about our own experiences with love and intimacy, about what turned us on and what didn't. So it was completely open from the get-go. Jake described it as a kind of intellectual orgy and I think that sums it up best." »
Jake Gyllenhaal has talked about his past sex life. Met while promoting his latest romcom "Love and Other Drugs", the Prince Dastan in "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" isn't shy on revealing the fact that he used to enjoy casual sex. "I think casual sex some people are into, I definitely have been in my life at times," so he said.
Despite his confession of partaking in one night stands, the 30-year-old hunk assured that he is now over it. The actor, who has been linked romantically to country music beauty Taylor Swift for quite some time, told The Press Association during the interview, "I think you find other things more important as time goes on."
In the chat, the former boyfriend of Reese Witherspoon also opened up about getting naked in front of the camera for "Love and Other Drugs". The co-star of Anne Hathaway in the Edward Zwick-directed film said, »
Edward Zwick's Love and Other Drugs is a Frankenstein's monster, a movie bolted together from disparate parts that never properly co-ordinate with one another. It lumbers, breaks into an occasional trot, then falls apart completely. Zwick, a specialist in epic (Legends of the 31Fall, The Last Samurai), hasn't quite decided if he's making a socio-medical drama, a sex comedy, a drug-company infomercial or a tragic-illness movie – so we get an unholy mishmash of all four. »
Jake Gyllenhaal has kept up his squeaky clean image well. Living in Hollywood’s spotlight, the 30-year-old actor and past Oscar nominee has avoided scandal and dated some of Tinsel Town’s biggest names. As far as we know, he was forever faithful to past flames Reese Witherspoon and Kirsten Dunst, but he admits that he’s had his fair share of casual sex!
“I think casual sex some people are into,” he said in a recent interview with the Press Association. “I definitely have been in my life at times.”
Eek! A confession like that is sure to make any girlfriend nervous, but Jake says those days are in his past.
“I think you find other things more important as time goes on,” he said.
Those important things include his current love interest, country mega-star, »
1. True Blood Rolling Stone Cover. The blood. The touching. The lack of shirts. Skarsgard, why so modest? Paquin’s thigh can support itself. Paquin, cover up. Show some decorum. Moyer, you’re good. 2. Mark Paul Gosselaar’s Sex Scene on Weeds. This is a personal favorite. A water shed moment in television history. Wherein Mark Paul Gosselaar, everyone’s favorite Preppy, takes Mary-Louise Parker and does her in/on a bar. I recommend watching it again. This still hardly does it justice. Nsfw. 3. Any photo of Benjamin Millepied shirtless. A star is born. A shirtless star. Sure, he’s been famous in his own right as a principal dancer at The New York City Ballet for quite some time, but when Natalie Portman deems you worthy to procreate and marry, it’s a whole new ball game. It’s like Millepied’s life went from the straight to DVD release »

Jake Gyllenhaal has revealed that he used to enjoy casual sex in his younger years. However, the 30-year-old actor insisted that he has more important endeavours, seemingly referring to his girlfriend, country singer Taylor Swift. He told Pa: "I think casual sex some people are into, I definitely have been in my life at times. I think you find other things more important as time goes on." Promoting new movie Love And Other Drugs, in which he stars (more) »

Partly based on Jamie Reidy’s 2005 non-fiction memoir Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman, Edward Zwick’s latest directorial offering Love & Other Drugs is yet another entry into the director's seemingly favoured sub-genre of ‘issue-tainment’.
Unlike Zwick’s previous attempts, however, Love & Other Drugs finds the director trying to fuse the debate (this time surrounding privatised health care and ‘big pharma’) with the genre of romantic comedy. Does it work? Well, in truth, not really.
It’s clear from the opening of the movie – set in 1996 and therefore allowing the film-makers to stack the obligatory soundtrack album with lots of rather obvious hits from that period – that the film makers are attempting to make a movie that’s very much in the vein of Jerry Maguire. To that end we’re introduced to cocky, »
HeyUGuys recently caught up with Hollywood A-list filmmaker Edward Zwick to chat to him about his new feature Love and Other Drugs – a romantic comedy drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway which see’s the director abandon his big-budget, socially conscious action epics and return to a smaller, intimate character piece in the style of his earlier work.
HeyUGuys: Did you encounter any struggles in combining the themes of sex, love, illness, and drugs into one movie?
Edward Zwick: It’s been my experience of life that there are always conflicting and competing themes happening at any one moment – that there’s something going on with your family, something happening at work, something going on with your health and part of the juggling act of life is to reconcile all the chaos of that and I was hoping to capture some of that in a film. Some films, »

This is a Pure Movies interview with Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway for Love and Other Drugs, directed by Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond) and also starring Judy Greer, Hank Azaria, Katheryn Winnick and Oliver Platt. Written by Natalie Peck. What was the main attraction of Love and Other Drugs for you? Jake Gyllenhaal: I just think there comes a time in different people’s lives where they say: “Do I have real love? Do I want real love? What is real love?” When I read this, I just jumped. I very rarely have a moment where I get excited and I go: “Somebody wrote this for me and they don’t know it.” I’ve also always wanted to get naked with Anne again in a movie and I felt like this was an opportunity to help her! Anne Hathaway: I really believed Jamie and Maggie’s love »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
When searching for directors who craft unerringly human romantic comedies that never patronise their viewers, who do we turn to?
The list can be counted on one hand; Cameron Crowe (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Say Anything, Jerry Maguire), Woody Allen (Annie Hall, Manhattan), perhaps even Kevin Smith (Chasing Amy), and most recently Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer). What we certainly don’t expect is for Edward Zwick, best known for his impressively mounted epics and actioners (Glory, The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond, Defiance), to come out with this refreshingly honest, if occasionally too treacly stab at the genre.
We meet Jamie (Jake Gyllenhaal) as he is a lowly, albeit charming, electronics store employee in the mid-90s. Having dropped out of medical school, he instead decides to become a pharmaceutical representative, lobbying doctors through various means to prescribe his favoured brands of medication. In this »

Love And Other Drugs director Ed Zwick has insisted that Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway needed to appear naked in the film. The 58-year-old Oscar winner remained adamant that the Hollywood stars simply had to strip off and film sex scenes in order to make their characters' romance believable. He explained to Virgin Media: "If I try to imagine this movie without doing [nudity] I can't. When people are first involved and as into each other as these (more) »

Ed Zwick abandons the world of conflicted African diamond smugglers and 18th century westerners indoctrinated into the ways of the samurai, for a romantic character piece which revolves around the world of pills, thrills and heartaches.
Jake Gyllenhaal stars as young, horny salesman Jamie Randall who, having been fired from his previous job after being caught in an uncompromising position with his boss’s wife, manages to secure a position (thanks to his younger and incredibly successful brother) selling pharmaceutical products for medical company Pfizer. Crashing a patent’s appointment with a doctor he’s trying to sell to, it’s there where he meets his romantic match in Maggie (Anne Hathaway) with whom he becomes involved. A similar free sprit to himself, she’s a struggling artist working as waitress to make ends meet (with that traditional Hollywood contrivance of owning a massive loft conversation), who is also battling »

Apologies for the lack of updates recently but with all the Christmas family activities to attend, the copious amount of food and drink this season annually brings that leaves my head in no place to type morning, noon or night and the fact Hollywood is in hibernation for a week, I’m sure you can all forgive me. And at the end of the day this weekend is more or less the only full days off I get from Obsessed With Film all year.
Though I promise normal Owf duties will return tomorrow but as I like to keep you guys abreast of developments on The Dark Knight Rises, I just wanted to point out a news tidbit that hit today which rules out a probable 2011 Oscar winner from starring in the Summer 2011 shot film.

We dare you to disagree: when all was said and done, 2010 was a great year for movies.
Christopher Nolan managed to somehow create a summer blockbuster in “Inception” that actually required thinking. Animation dominated the Cineplex with perhaps the greatest lineup of cartoons a single year has ever seen — “How to Train Your Dragon,” “Despicable Me’ and “Toy Story 3″ just for starters. And “The Social Network” managed to combine our two national obsessions — movies and the internet – in a way that, frankly, only we here at Nextmovie had ever previously accomplished.
There were a lot of tough choices, but we managed to crown the year’s best movies, scenes and stars in our first annual year-end movie awards.
Best. Movie. Ever.
Ftw: “The Social Network”
It didn’t sound like a recipe for Hollywood perfection: the kid from “Zombieland” in a movie about Facebook? Really? But beyond »

Edward Zwick believes nudity was crucial to the story told in "Love and Other Drugs". The director cast Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway in the comedy drama movie about a pharmaceutical salesman who falls in love with a young Parkinson's Disease sufferer, and is adamant the star pair had to be naked on screen to make their love story believable.
"If I try to imagine this movie without doing that [nudity], I can't," he said. "When people are first involved and as into each other as these people are then that bed becomes their world. They eat there, they talk there, they sleep there, everything is there. Had we done the movie with the sheets pulled up to their necks like Rock Hudson and Doris Day in 'Pillow Talk' it would have been very naff. And these are actors that really are committed to authenticity."
Zwick was delighted to »
HollywoodNews.com: In Anne Hathaway’s most recent role in ‘Love and Other Drugs,’ she has to play a woman who is pretty comfortable with her sexuality and going after attention, but the actress is not quite that person.
Hathaway admits that she was nervous about tackling the role because she feels she is so different, states Digital Spy (via The Guardian). “I’m much happier talking with people than I am flirting with them,” Hathaway says about her own approach to people.
She also considers herself pretty shy and “not entirely comfortable” with getting attention that is focused on her sexual side.

Anne Hathway has confessed to being scared of her latest character's open approach to sex, as she often struggles to be seductive. The Oscar-nominated actress explained how she enjoyed fleshing out Parkinson's disease sufferer Maggie Murdock - the romantic interest of Jake Gyllenhaal in new release Love And Other Drugs - but was rather more reluctant to show her promiscuous side on screen. She told The Guardian: "The most important thing was to make Maggie honest... she had amazing potential to be angry, funny, smart and incredibly wounded. The thought of combining all of those aspects into a character was a challenge but very exciting. "It was the sexuality of the character [that scared me]. I'm much happier talking with people than I am flirting with them. I'm pretty shy and not (more) »

Anne Hathaway has reportedly moved in with her boyfriend. The 'Love and Other Drugs' star is said to have taken her two-year romance with actor Adam Shulman to another level and agreed to live with him in his New York apartment.A source told Life & Style magazine: "She's moved into his Brooklyn pad. They've been together for a long time, so she's confident about moving in with him." Anne started dating Adam shortly after splitting from Raffaello Follieri, who was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison in 2008 after pleading guilty to cheating investors out of millions of dollars, and though she was left "embarrassed" by the end of her previous relationship, she insists it never put her off the idea of finding love again. She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I felt so foolish initially, and I expected everyone to judge me, but all I got from family members, »
The Hollywood actor on sexuality, her love of Britain, and why she's dying to play the Shrew
In Love and Other Drugs you play Maggie, a 26-year-old with early-onset Parkinson's disease who meets drug salesman Jamie (Jake Gyllenhaal). It's unusual to find someone with a degenerative illness in a rom-com. How did you approach the role?
The most important thing was to make Maggie honest, and when I got the script she wasn't completely there yet but she had amazing potential to be angry, funny, smart and incredibly wounded. The thought of combining all of those aspects into a character was a challenge but very exciting.
You've said you always choose scripts with at least one element that "scares the bejesus out of you". What scared you about this one?
How eloquent of me! It was the sexuality of the character. I'm much happier talking with people than I am flirting with them. »
