Earlier in the day, the on-screen lovers attended a press conference where Jake and Anne said sex scenes in their new movie were easier to shoot because they are mutually attracted to each other.
“I think it is easier to work with somebody that you find attractive,” said lady’s man Jake, who is famously dating country bumpkin Taylor Swift. “It’s always easier to work with things that are naturally occurring.”
Anne also admitted it was not hard to get naked with the 29-year-old lothario, who she previously starred with in Brokeback Mountain.
“I actually think that 65 to 75 percent of all my nude scenes have been with you,” she said. “And you are very attractive so I guess I can safely say yes.”
That said, Anne is still was not completely comfortable undressing on camera.
“I’ve done the nudity thing and I can tell you the most scariest part about doing nudity is two things,” the 28-year-old said. “One is having to watch it with an audience, because it becomes a little surreal, and I must say not the most comfortable thing in the world. The second part about doing nudity is talking about it — that’s a little scary, and all the attention it gets.”
“Well, my character in this movie has a lot of sex, so I had to practice a lot,” Gyllenhaal joked. “I am fully devoted to research … there are sacrifices that I have to make and that happened to be one of them.”
