Last night, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway joined Ed Zwick for a Q&A after a screening of Love and Other Drugs at NYU. We are very fortunate indeed because we have videos!
Jeff Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere finally got to see Love and Other Drugs last night and he is full of praise for it. Not only does he call it Ed Zwick's finest movie, he also says that it's not just Anne who has produced a great performance.
'I'd been told that Hathaway's performance is the killer, and it is, I suppose, because your heart goes out to any character coping with a debilitating disease (stage-one Parkinson's) and who wants to keep herself aloof and in control, but Gyllenhaal gives his most winning performance ever -- not the deepest or darkest or saddest, perhaps, but 100% likable with no audience-alienation issues except for emotional avoidance. They're quite a pair, these two. All you want is to see them keep it together and somehow make it work.'

Jake was also interviewed for MTV yesterday - let's hope this airs soon.
