Jake Gyllenhaal reveals love scene with Jennifer Aniston was torture
October 6, 2021
Actor, Jake Gyllenhaal revealed during an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show” that it was torture playing a love scene with Jennifer Aniston because he had a huge crush on the Morning Show actress.
He said;”[Filming the sex scenes] was torture, yes it was,” “But it was also not torture. I mean, come on, it was like a mix of both. “Weirdly, love scenes are awkward, because there are maybe 30, 50 people watching it? That doesn’t turn me on,” he continued. “It’s oddly mechanical. And also it’s a dance, you’re choreographing for a camera. You can get in it, but it’s like a fight scene, you have to choreograph those scenes.”
“The pillow technique was used,””That was just preemptive and used generally always when actually in a horizontal place in that movie.”
He said, “I think that was actually a Jennifer suggestion. She was very kind to suggest it before we began. She was like, ‘I’m putting a pillow here.’ ”
Jake and Aniston played lovers in the 2002 movie The Good Girl.
