Much has been written about Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway‘s nudity and sex scenes in “Love and Other Drugs.” But how did these two research the heavier parts of their roles? After the jump, Jake shares how he learned about the world of pharmaceutical reps, and Anne describes how she was able to give a convincing portrayal of a 20-something woman with early-onset Parkinson’s Disease.

Amelia, I will not be liveblogging the Oscars this year: Mr. Overexposure himself, James Franco, will be co-hosting the 83rd annual Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway. Maybe we’ll get lucky and he will get stuck under a boulder and cut his arm off onstage? I kid, I kid. But seriously, James Franco is damn near impossible to avoid these days. He just published a book, his new movie “127 Hours” is out, he does performance art dissecting “Three’s Company,” he’s posing in drag on the covers of magazines, and he’s apparently a grad student at, like, five different colleges simultaneously.

Luckily, I was able to track down some set design photos of the space, along with film stills that showcase the loft. Let’s take a tour! Read more … Keep reading »
“There is that revoltingly embarrassing moment when you have to take your clothes off in front of strangers. I mean, I don’t go to the beach in a bikini for a reason. 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.”
