On how to get Anne Hathaway into bed: "We talked about what we thought was sexy, about what were the things that interested us, and through the discussion became pretty intimate with each other."
On sex scenes with Anne: "Annie and I had already had sex on film (in Brokeback Mountain). There’s something about the way Annie and I both work which is inherently very musical. It’s all about rhythm. There’s a rhythm to writing, there’s a rhythm to sports, there’s a rhythm to sex."
On letting it all hang out on set: "Annie, because as a woman I think it’s harder. She said at one point, 'Well, we’re both topless and we both show our butts.' And I was like, 'Hmm, but it’s a little different for you.'"
On admiration for his sister Maggie: "I admire her and continue to admire her. That might play into the reason I don’t have much of a problem letting the women I’ve worked with shine. I love women."
On his friendship with Anne: "I feel like she’s a comrade. The thing about Anne is that she develops her characters in absolute detail. To the point where she went down to the Lower East Side to buy fluorescent bras for her character. I knew Annie could f**king kill it."
On being naked in the movie: “I was naked a lot in the movie. I was naked in more of it than was even in the final cut. A director’s cut? I don’t even know how that would be rated.”
On where he is most at ease: "I think comedy. That’s why I loved working with Robert Downey Jr (on Zodiac). He and I had this similar kind of working. His energy is a bit more frenetic than but in terms of work, we meshed."
Yes, get those two in a comedy ASAP!
Jake in Esquire UK. No news on any US magazines yet, but here's hoping we see Jake on lots of covers, chat shows and carnivals. Okay, maybe not carnivals. How about commercials? There was apparently an ad for Love & Other Drugs during Dancing with the Stars tonight, and the twitterverse reaction was very positive.
Shouldn't we be getting another trailer or some photos? Maybe it's too close to
MTV posted another video from the recent NYC screening. In this one, Jake talks about having to "pump up" the other person when doing a love scene. Yes, Anne does giggle at this choice of words!
If you haven't seen the rest, they are here.
