Jake Gyllenhaal & Jennifer Aniston

It turns out Jake Gyllenhaal had a massive crush on Jennifer Aniston while filming their 2002 movie The Good Girl.

He spoke about it on The Howard Stern Show, and admitted, "it was torture."

Jake said, "Oh yeah, it was torture, yes it was."

He added, "But it was also not torture. I mean, come on, it was like a mix of both."

The actor was asked how he got through the love scenes, and he admitted it wasn't as difficult as you'd think.

He explained, "Weirdly, love scenes are awkward, because there are maybe 30, 50 people watching it? That doesn't turn me on."

"It's oddly mechanical. And also it's a dance, you're choreographing for a camera."

"You can get in it, but it's like a fight scene, you have to choreograph those scenes.''

Jake admitted a well-placed pillow helped a lot.

"That was just preemptive and used generally always when actually in a horizontal place in that movie."

He revealed, "I think that was actually a Jennifer suggestion, she was very kind to suggest it before we began."

The Good Girl

The movie follows the story of Justine (Jennifer Aniston), who as you can imagine, is the good girl.

She's 30-years-old and working in a Texas discount store, dissatisfied with her life and her pot-smoking husband.
