Actor Jake Gyllenhaal revealed that he was so in love with Jennifer Aniston that it was a torture for him to film the love scenes with the actress from “Friends”.
The two actors starred together in 2002 in the movie “The Good Girl”, and the American star confessed that it was not easy at all, given that he had a passion for Jennifer.
In an interview on The Howard Stern Show, Gyllenhaal was asked if it was difficult for him to film love scenes with a person he was really in love with.
But he added that the love scenes are “mechanical” and because of this he managed to hide his true feelings for Jennifer.
At Aniston’s suggestion, a pillow was used that was placed between them when they filmed the love scenes.
“It is a technique generally used when two actors are placed horizontally. I think that was Jennifer’s suggestion. She was very kind to suggest this before we started “, the actor also declared.
The star was also asked if he thinks he will be a good father and husband, given his rising career.
“That’s all I want – to be a good husband and father,” Gyllenhaal replied.
“I think there will come a time when your work becomes more superficial or deeper,” said the actor.
Gyllenhaal and Cadieu appeared together on the red carpet at the New York Film Festival, at the premiere of Maggie’s new film, “The Lost Daughter,” and also appeared together on the red carpet at the Tony Awards. The two have been a couple since 2018.
