Scan of Bunte Beauty magazine, featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Javier Bardem and Gerard Butler
Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal in Entertainment Weekly, December 2010
"Jake Gyllenhaal has joked that he was attracted to his role in Love and Other Drugs because it involved being in the nude with Anne Hathaway.He jested to Cover Media: "It was out of pity and I was, like, the 45th actor to be offered the role. After everyone heard they had to be naked with Annie they just started turning it down... just kidding.
"It was just a lot of different things [that drew me to it]. I've always wanted to get naked in a movie with Annie again and I felt like this was an opportunity to help her."
"Essentially knowing Ed was at the helm was the biggest thing. I have wanted to work with him over and over again and auditioned for his movies many, many times." Source: www.digitalspy.co.uk
