Anne Hathaway says Jake Gyllenhaal asked to touch her boobs in Brokeback

Anne Hathaway told a British radio station that Jake Gyllenhaal politely asked if he could touch her boobs during a sex scene for Brokeback Mountain to make it seem more authentic. At first I didn’t believe the quote since it sounds too British and reporting paper The Sun is not too reliable. They give the source as Heart radio, which has the video interview with Hathaway on their website. She really did say this, including “get my kit off” and she makes Gyllenhaal seem really reluctant and nice about asking to touch her boobs:

She told radio station Heart: “Sometimes you work with actors, and they can be lovely guys, but they have kind of dodgy instincts when it comes to kissing in scenes.

“They want to try to make it look a bit too real if you know what I mean.

“With James [McAvoy, her co-star in the upcoming film Becoming Jane,] right before we started he turned to me and said ‘closed mouths, no tongue’ and that’s what I normally say to people – so it was a pleasure.”

Anne then cheekily added: “There was this scene in Brokeback Mountain where I get my kit off and I’m in the car with Jake Gyllenhaal and he’s touched my shoulder and he’s touched my stomach and he’s touched around my back. Everywhere except for, you know, ‘the girls’.

“So the director yells cut and we go behind a screen and I’m putting my clothes back on and Jake comes up to me and says: ‘Annie, the thing is, the scene, in real life I would… and the director’s not yelling cut, so… can I?’

“I just turned to him and said: ‘It’s okay Jake, yes, you can touch my boobs.'”

[via Oh No They Didn’t!]

Hathaway is promoting her new film about British author Jane Austen, Becoming Jane. She told the interviewer that when guys try to slip her the tongue during an onscreen kissing scene she just closes her teeth and reminds them not to do it next time.

Although she didn’t mention it in this interview, Hathaway said last summer that Stanley Tucci elbowed her in the chest repeatedly while they were filming The Devil Wears Prada and then blamed her for it.

    Yawn, who cares about a “straight” guy in a gay movie touching woman’s breasts? I mean how convulted is this?

    Jake G reluctant to touch ‘the girls’? Say it aint so.

    It’s a cute story w/e.

    The ongoing ‘Anne Hathaway teaches how to do love scenes’ interview quotes is always amusing. She tries so hard to be media convincing.
