LONDON - Actor Jake Gyllenhaal likes to “protect” his co-stars during sex scenes in movies so that the atmosphere remains comfortable.
Gyllenhaal tried the same trick with his “Love And Other Drugs” co-star Anne Hathaway, reports thesun.co.uk.
“It’s a naturally awkward thing to be having fake cinematic sex with anybody. So I feel like, with an actress when you’re on a set and dealing with what is usually a majority of men on a movie set, I always feel like it’s my responsibility to kind of protect and make sure that she feels comfortable because they tend to be more objectified,” said Gyllenhaal.
“So I’d tease her and was always like, ‘Where do you want me to go? What do you want me to do?’ Anne was always like, ‘You do your thing and I’ll do my thing. I’m fine on my own!’”
