Jake Gyllenhaal & Anne Hathaway: Shirtless for 'EW'

Jake Gyllenhaal & Anne Hathaway: Shirtless for 'EW'

A shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway hug on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue.

The pic was revealed Wednesday (November 17) when Jake dropped by The Late Show with David Letterman, wearing a Burberry suit, to chat about working with an oft-naked Anne in their new film Love and Other Drugs.

“I mean, look. I’ve had a pretty illustrious career at this point but the hardest thing has been pretending to be turned on by Anne Hathaway,” Jake joked.

Asked by Dave how actors film a love scene without any mishaps, Jake revealed “it’s an art form.”

“It’s very carefully planned out. It’s actually very much like football, you know. There are plays. You just got to look for holes in her defensive end,” he said, before quickly adding, “I’m sorry! I didn’t mean it like that!”

10+ pictures inside of Jake Gyllenhaal arriving at The Late Show with David Letterman studio in NYC…

    The entertainment Weekly cover with Anne is SO cute <3 ….. well, SHE makes it adorable =)

  • Wendy

    LOL. Jake, ever so charismatic. He should do more comedy films… Not looking forward to this film though. Wish he would do more dramatic ones.

  • Emily

    omg. he looks SOOOO cute in that magazine cover…swoon

  • caxposed

    YUMMMMMMMY! Anne totally kills it by being on this cover. That SO should have been me instead of her, LOL. Can’t wait to watch this film.

    Maybe she can hook him up with her brother…

  • Laki

    Now,why aren’t these two together?
    I’d take her over Swift every day,and take him over her hipster boyfriend EVERY day.

  • :)

    They look so cute together…. nice man with sweet lady (:

  • Reba

    They need to date and then have beautiful babies together. Love them always.

  • Debbie

    They both look great and Jake is definitely very sexy. Now that the promo work for the movie is almost over and it’s opening, can Jake finally put a stop to this sad and laughable bearding attempt with Taylor I’m Mentally 16 years old Swift. Jake’s a great actor, he should try standing on his acting instead of how many tabloid mentions he gets every week.

  • Beth

    Beautiful couple! :)

  • little debbie

    What a cheesy cover. Can’t get past ake’s droopy face and Ann’s horsey face. It’s astouding what actors will do to sell their films. That’s where you can tell the difference between the ones that don’t have to try hard, and the ones like these two who require this kind of attention.

  • Butter_Fly

    He should have been People’s Sexiest Man Alive.

  • little debbie

    Should read “Can’t get past Jake’s droopy face…”

  • Iffy Miffy

    The Letterman bit is hilarious, I love, love Jake – he is so relaxed and nice and funny, he and David really work well together. Jake looks yummy of course, as always.

  • Amelie

    He’s so sexy!!!And funny! LOVE him!
    Can’t wait to see this movie!

  • boston61

    Smelly man.

  • Agreed

    @little debbie: Thank you. I seriously don’t get Jakes appeal unless he’s shirtless. I think his hairy chest is great but his face is something else. The trailer annoys me. Bubble boy with his bugged out eyes and no facial hair(eww) and clown face Anne. Pass!

  • yoohoo

    anne gave an awkward smirk just when the shot was taking – she was telling jake his nips are poking her back and his chest hair rubbing her like a dishwashing scrub.
    had EW included the bottom half of the pic, i’d let you in what happened there, too.

  • M

    I really don’t like it how hard Jakes tries to sell this movie. I will watch this movie without all the press – trailer was good enough. and seriously, Jake is a good actor and this pr is cheap and degrades him

  • YouBetYa

    He lost those muscles pretty fast huh?

  • Tabitha

    I find that cover inappropriate.

  • someinfo

    I find the promotion for this movie and interesting reversal of the norm.
    Rather than fabricate some sort of tabloid story between Anne & Jake (who clearly like the other and have mucho chemistry), there have been zero hints that these two may have or may be romantically interested in the other person. It almost seems as if the studio doesn’t want that sort of thing to be leaked out because of their attempt to draw some Oscar buzz. Therefore, Anne and Jake must appear to be just actors doing their jobs to show that they are performing as actors. All the interviews they have done, both have been extremely touch toward the other and somewhat flirty. If this was the PR for any other movie their would be headlines, Jake after Anne and her boyfriend (Adam shulman) enraged. Or that Anne has a crush on him or that Taylor Swift is gunning for her and last that she is the reason that he and Reese split up.

    Sure they are playing up the nude and racy stuff, but at the same time their not allowing the slight indication to get out that something could be brewing between them. That’s not the norm, with AJ and Brad Pitt is was all out there, then of course the recent rumors about AJ and Johnny Depp and his wife not wanting some scenes. Any movie Jennifer Aniston is in links her to the costar or hints at it. In almost every movie in which the characters hookup on screen and do so in such a sexual manner as this one, rumors are out there that they are hooking up on the side.

    Don’t start with the he is gay stuff, because that has never stopped rumors about him hooking up with co-stars before, such as Reese Witherspoon. Jake has been linked to actresses many times, so gay or not gay it wouldn’t stop gossip about he and Hathaway. Plus she isn’t married and she is dating a hardly know z rate actor, the sort of stuff tabloids love and so does the rumor mill.

    I think it’s a tactic by the studio to keep any talk of a Hathaway & Gyllenhaal hookup underwraps so they can and will be seen as more credible actors. With an R-rating, this movie is shooting for ok boxoffice success and mostly award recognition.

    Even doing the EW cover with no clothes on wasn’t required and I’m not certain it’s something a person who has a serious boyfriend would do.
    I’m sure if Jake was still linked to Reese you wouldn’t see those racy photos either.

    All the quiet and the chemistry these two show in interviews gets me thinking that perhaps something is brewing between them or could.
    It’s just against the normal link you co-stars moto we usually see studios use.

  • Cameronx87

    I feel like Anne and Jake are the new Leo and Kate. They both have that bond that will last their whole lives.

  • amanda

    I really don’t like this obvious ploy of selling this movie on the nudity and not the storyline or acting. I bet most people are going to see this mostly to get an eyeful of Anne or Jake or both.

  • colina

    A very try-hard sell. It puts me off it, actually.

  • Angela

    @Wendy: so should he do more comedy or drama LOL

  • someinfo

    How many people who wanted to see this movie are now not going because of the nudity?

    My bet is that if people wanted to see this movie, they still want to see it. The leads are adorable together and pretty to look at and until you actually goto see it, your not going to see all that much of gyllenhaal & Hathaway.

    That people who weren’t going to see it anyway are now just giving a reason for not doing so. It isn’t being adverstised as 9 1/2 weeks or Basic Instincts. I doubt it’s any worse than knocked up or wedding crashers.

  • Susan

    @Butter_Fly: I couldn’t agree with you more!

  • colina

    Two dreary horsey-faced yawners. It should be one snoozer of a movie.

  • GG

    If I were Anne’s bf, I would not be happy with that cover.

  • someinfo

    That’s what I’m talking about GG, it’s one thing to do the movie and film the scenes as an artist…BUT.. she didn’t have to pose with him for the magazine, especially the way they did. The cover is being compared to a Time Magazine cover with NC and Tom Cruise for Eyes Wide Shut which was photographed in the same building. The big difference back then is TC and NC were married, Gyllenhaal and Hathaway are not.

    It shocks me, boyfriend or not that there have’t been some rumors out-there or gossip magazines to pick up on the serious flirting, touching and now these risky photos and at least imply that something is going on with Anne & Jake or that her boyfriend would be pissed.

    Again, I think this movie wants some award nominations and because of that they are going overdrive to keep any romance rumors with Jake & Anne at bay, so they come off as all acting, rather than a couple in real-life who is just getting it on on-screen (not a stretch)

  • amanda


    I would rather see him with someone like Anne any day than TayTay who acts 14 instead of 20. I’m still holding out that’s it PR for whatever reason.

  • johnny

    Well… I think it’s a little over the top. If they were together in RL it wouldn’t seem that way but just to promote their movie, I don’t know seems kind of weird.

  • Haha

    No class.

  • someinfo

    I see nothing wrong with the photos, they are both most likely at their peak or coming into their peak when it comes to looks and career.
    Rather than the young early 20′s they were in when they filmed BBM, clearly both have grown and come into their own and feel confident about that right now. What’s wrong with celebrating that, your not seeing anything you shouldn’t in that photo, there movie has a big focus on sex and the photo shoot is reflecting that. The movie is rated R and if we are to accept that the spend at least 60% of the movie in a state of undress then why not have a photo tha reflect this and the movie.

  • my opinion

    Both of these two are ugly as sin. He’s gross and she’s worse.

  • Thomas Sabo

    can Jake finally put a stop to this sad and laughable bearding attempt with Taylor I’m Mentally 16 years old Swift.

  • me

    Its very ashame that adult as celebrity think its OK to go naked in public, well.. that is totally not Ok, wonder whats the diff between porn star n them… That is one of the signs of the end of the world, people naked in public.. I hope they can have more morality than the devil’s own.

  • JD

    Kind of racey for a family magazine. It should be on Rolling Stone or some mag like that.

    “Illustrious Career?”

  • Thanksforthat

    Thanks for the honesty…I now don’t care to see a movie with an actor who thinks he is all that (so to speak). Anne Hathaway is a great person and you Jake are not so impressive to me. I will await Anne’s next movie eagerly however, this one I will not be watching…thanks again Jake!

  • janie

    @Emily: Jake…now ladies thatsssssssss what I’m talking about!!!!

  • John Derlane.

    Crap! You mean this was some sort of publicity photo for a magazine? I was hoping that Ann Hathaway had started up a new charity where she let’s random men snuggle completely naked with her, as a way to encourage hope and understanding throughout the country…

    …And I was going to do my part and get in line.
