Jake Gyllenhaal has stated that filming sex scenes with Jennifer Aniston was “torture”

The Hollywood star admitted it felt “awkward” to film intimate scenes with the beauty for the 2002 comedy The Good Girl.

Filming sex scenes with Jennifer Anniston was “torture”

During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Jake made the following joke: “It was torture, yes it was, but it was also not torture. I mean, come on. It was like a mix of both.”

He told the host that he had a huge crush on the Friends star, which made filming more difficult.

He went on: “Weirdly, love scenes are awkward because there are maybe 30, 50 people watching.

“That doesn’t turn me on.”

“Most of the time, it’s oddly mechanical, right? And also it’s a dance, like, you choreograph it for a camera.

“It’s one of those like a fight scene, you gotta choreograph those things and I always have tried.”

Jennifer had suggested they use a pillow to help them feel more comfortable during the racy scenes, according to Jake.

According to the actor: “That was just pre-emptive and used generally always when actually in a horizontal place in that movie.

“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’.”

The Donny Darko actor also spoke about his relationship with girlfriend Jeanne Cadieu and whether or not marriage and children are on the horizon.

The Oscar nominee continued: “Now that I have fulfilled a lot of things in my career that I feel comfortable with, I can safely say that. I don’t know if I could have said that before.”

Jake and the French model started dating in 2018 and Jake stated that he wanted to “be a good husband and a father.”
