Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal have become champions of nudity after posing for a stunning series of magazine covers for Entertainment Weekly to publicize their Viagra movie, Love & Other Drugs.”
The magazine shot three different covers, each reflecting a different mood. Both are nude, at least from the waist up, but neither show any, ahem, delicate parts.
Gyllenhaal, 29, and Hathaway, 28, will appear in the nude for about 65 percent of their time on-screen. The movie is about a Viagra salesman.
The couple said in a recent interview that being nude around eachother took some getting used to, but after awhile they got over the awkwardness of the sex scenes.

“We were, like, fake having sex and being like, ‘Knock the pot off, knock the pot off,”‘ Jake told the magazine about one scene. “I was not focusing on her at all and instead focusing on knocking the f—ing pot off for Ed [Zwick].”
At one point, Zwick, the director, took off his clothes and got into bed with the couple to ease some of the tension on set.
Sounds kind of creepy, but apparently it worked.
“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,” said Hathaway.
“There wasn’t anything to be nervous about. It was another scene.”
The biggest problem for the fair-skinned actress was bruising.”The lack of clothing meant that there wasn’t a lot of padding,” she explained.
Hathaway portrays Maggie, an alluring free spirit who won’t let anyone – or anything – tie her down.
But she meets her match in Jamie (Gyllenhaal), whose relentless and nearly infallible charm has been honed in the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales.
Maggie and Jamie’s relationship evolves thanks to a little help from the ultimate drug.
Gyllenhaal also appeared last night on the Late Show with David Letterman to talk about the film. Check out what he had to say below.
“Love & Other Drugs” will hit theaters on Nov 24.
