  • Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway strip down for Entertainment Weekly

    File this one under unnecessary.

    “Love and Other Drugs” stars Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal posed for not one, not two, but THREE nude covers for Entertainment Weekly.

    The issue features the attractive duo on the cover, looking naked and happy, promoting the new film. And while the critically acclaimed pair may have a hit on their hands, we couldn’t tell you what the movie is about because all these two seem to talk about is their sex scenes and getting naked.

    “I mean, I don’t go to the beach in a bikini for a reason,” Hathaway told the magazine. “So I thought, ‘Okay, I’m going to be in control. I’m going to do everything properly, disrobe at the last minute, and in between shots get the clothes back on.’ But then I found that every time I put my robe back on, it rubbed all the body makeup off and that added 20 minutes to filming.

    “As with all things in life, the second you stop making it about you and you make it about everyone else, It just got, dare I say, fun.”

    Hathaway and Gyllenhaal played a married couple previously in “Brokeback Mountain,” and the EW photographer says it led to an easy rapport between the two.

    “I thought they’d be a little more tense than they were, but it was surprisingly low-key,” he said. “I guess after making a movie like that with each other, it’s not too big of a deal.”

    But Hathaway insists she had her moments of being mortified.

    “It’s racy – very racy. I keep asking people if it is too sexy for them. However it is just part of the job,” Hathaway told’s Pop Tarts at the film’s Hollywood premiere earlier this month. “That being said, it is intensely mortifying taking your clothes off in front of other people, but it is also intensely mortifying doing a lot of things in front of people and I’ve learned how to deal with that.

    Gyllenhaal said his friendship with Hathaway helped him stay in character.

    “We’re friends and we understand the process of acting, and as a result of that we felt comfortable, even when it was awkward, and we try to joke about it. I try to be as respectful as possible, and if you are respectful on the set it makes it as dirty as it can be onscreen.”
