Anne Hathaway is obviously still on the promotional circuit for her new movie with Jake Gyllenhaal, Love And Other Drugs. So of course, because the movie has so much to do with sex, she has to discuss that at every given opportunity.
In a recent interview, she said that she and Jake developed an intimacy for them to both be able to make their raunchy sex scenes more authentic.
She said, “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.”
She went on to reveal that she thought it was helpful for their roles, to swap sex stories. She added, “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 kind of intellectual orgy and I think that sums it up best.”
Have you seen the movie? If so, what did you think of it? Were their scenes together believable?
