Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal Discuss the Complexities of Filming Nude Scenes (VIDEO)

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal on 'Today'If you have a talk show and haven't yet asked Jake Gyllenhaal and/or Anne Hathaway about the nude scenes in their new film, 'Love & Other Drugs,' then you are falling way behind. Meredith Vieira took her turn this morning on 'Today' (Weekdays, 7AM on NBC) and asked both stars about a scene in the trailer where Hathaway enters Gyllenhaal's apartment and drops her coat, revealing that she's naked to both Gyllenhaal and his surprised roommate.

Hathaway proceeded to tell a funny story about a surprise that happened while filming that scene on set. Hathaway entered the room, dropped her coat, and only then realized they were just rehearsing. "All of a sudden I notice that Jake is in his pants, Josh isn't wearing his costume, and I realize, we're rehearsing."

Gyllenhaal and Hathaway said they have both made their peace with occasional on-screen nudity being a part of their jobs. Gyllenhaal mentioned that the pair had already filmed a love scene together in 'Brokeback Mountain,' which eased the awkwardness this time around.

We can also report, with some degree of certainty, that everyone in the movie was probably at least partially naked when getting dressed in their trailers before the shoot.

Too bad it's gotta be in your face nudity. Whetever happened to the camera tricks that implied nudity, but didn't really show anything? Like the camera shows her dropping her coat, but cuts to the astonished look on the guy's face before we see anything. If we looked at her instead of the guy, she'd be wearing minimal cups and crotch covering.

In-your-face nudity works for me.
