When asked if it was torture for him to star with Jennifer in the movie, Jake said it was, but only because he liked her so much.
“Oh yeah, it was torture, yes it was,” he laughed. “But it was also not torture. I mean, come on, it was like a mix of both.”
Jake added, “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. The pillow technique was used. That was just preemptive and used generally always when actually in a horizontal place in that movie.”
He added, “I think that was actually a Jennifer suggestion, she was very kind to suggest it before we began. She was like, ‘I’m putting a pillow here.’”
