Jake Gyllenhaal talks on-screen nudity

As a Viagra salesman who falls for a free spirit in "Love and Other Drugs," Jake Gyllenhaal spends plenty of time stripping down and steaming things up with co-star Anne Hathaway. The 29-year-old actor reveals that he had no problem with the onscreen intimacy - especially since it's the second time around.

"Anne and I had already had sex on film [in 'Brokeback Mountain']," he explains in the December issue of Esquire UK.

"There's something about the way Annie and I both work which is inherently very musical," he added. "It’s all about rhythm. There’s a rhythm to writing, there’s a rhythm to sports, there’s a rhythm to sex.”

While Gyllenhaal, 29, believes actresses are more uncomfortable doing nude scenes, he was surprised by Hathaway's attitude. "She said at one point, ‘Well, we’re both topless and we both show our butts.' And I was like, ‘Hmm, but it’s a little different for you,'” he says.

So just how much flesh does Gyllenhaal flash in the film, due out November 24?

“I was naked a lot in the movie. I was naked in more of it than was even in the final cut," he reveals. "A director’s cut? I don’t even know how that would be rated.”

    So excited to see this movie! Any chance to see Jake on the screen with clothes on or without is always heartmelting for me. He is so handsome. Oh yah...He can do way better than Taylor.

    Does this mean Jake is more naked in this movie than he is on a typical night in the bath house?

    I totally have a sense of humor but im just sayin tom is kinda creepy......I just find it unneccessary for someone to speak like that. Its just nasty and talk like that could get someone in a lot of trouble.
