The actor stars opposite Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs, a romantic comedy based on Jamie Reidy’s memoir Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman.

Jake has never taken Viagra – a drug used to help men suffering from erectile problems – himself, although he teased it was a key element of the 90s era which saw the development of the pharmaceutical industry.

“If you remember the 90s you weren’t there… If you remember the 90s you didn’t have erectile dysfunction,” he laughed in an interview with ET.

Anne and Jake had to shoot some rather raunchy sex scenes for their parts in the movie, and the handsome actor has praised Anne for her willingness to undress.

The star has a very mature approach to filming romantic sequences, and treats them as a normal part of the job rather than getting embarrassed. As well as her sensible outlook on lovemaking scenes, Jake was overwhelmed by Anne’s overall talent.

“It’s the beginning of her being at the top of her game, and her being a representative of great acting,” he enthused.

“Even in the love scenes… she doesn’t shy away from anything.”
