Jake Gyllenhaal says he felt like it was his job to make sure Anne feel comfortable when they shot their raunchy scenes for Love and Other Drugs!

No wonder Taylor Swift is in love with Jake Gyllenhaal — he’s the sweetest guy ever! The 29-year-old actor practically made us melt when he told us how he was Anne Hathaway‘s knight in shining armor on the set of Love and Other Drugs when it came to shooting sex scenes.

“It’s a naturally awkward thing to be having fake cinematic sex with anybody, so I feel like with an actress (a woman in particular) 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,” Jake told HollywoodLife.com at the Love and Other Drugs premiere sponsored by Quintessentially and Valentino in NYC on Nov. 16.

He continued, “So to ease her and make her feel comfortable, I was always like, ‘Where do you want me to go? What do you want me to do? What do you feel comfortable doing?’ Anne was always like, ‘You do your thing and I’ll do my thing. I’m fine on my own!'”

This wasn’t the first time Jake and Anne worked together on such intense scenes — their first sex scene together took place in Brokeback Mountain. “I had to sort of resist it in the last movie,” Jake said. “And this time I could go for it!”

“There are all different types of love in this movie — romantic, familial, and friendship,” Jake added. “What I think I learned most of all was when making a movie, particularly a love story, in order to have a great creative process and be open and ready and game for anything, you kind of have to fall in love with everybody involved. I certainly did in some ways with Ed [Zwick] and Anne. We all did. What we share as a result is really special.”

Be sure to watch Anne and Jake’s sex scenes when Love and Other Drugs premieres Nov. 24!

Jake, we know you are gay. You didn’t teach Anne anything. Like she said, you do your thing and she will do hers. She actually has real sex with the opposite gender. Carryon with your Taylor Swift PR stunt.

JAKE IS NOT GAY… Just watch his interviews…Not a gay bone in that body…{It’s not what you don’t know that hurts you so much…It’s what you’re so sure of, That ain’t so…{Will Rogers quote} This gossip came from “Brokeback Mountain”…IT’S CALLED ACTING….. Hollywood doesn’t hire a gay man to do a gay role…Do your homework !!!
