Best Actor, Comedy - 'Love and Other Drugs'

Jake Gyllenhaal, nommed for his perf in “Love and Other Drugs,” read the news on his iPhone after several phone calls woke him up.

“It was almost delivered by messenger,” he said, but he would have appreciated a more theatrical method. “I would have loved to have had it delivered by some person in Shakespeare garb.” As the subject of clothing, or lack thereof, came up, the thesp talked about all the attention paid to the pic’s nude scenes.”

There’s been so much made about the nude scene, but the most important part of the film to me was the intimacy between the two characters,” he said. He’s glad for the attention paid to the film.

“In the entertainment industry we feel so insular. It’s so nice on a day like today, to see how far-reaching something like this is.”
