Anne Hathaway And Jake Gyllenhaal

Anne Hathaway And Jake Gyllenhaal - Anne Hathaway vividly recalls the first time she made out with Jake Gyllenhaal: It was on the set of 2005's "Brokeback Mountain," in which the actress played the neglected wife of Gyllenhaal's smitten gay cowboy, and they were filming a steamy tryst in the back of a car.


"Jake had touched me everywhere except my boob," says Hathaway, patting her chest as the pair sits together to discuss their new film, the romantic dramedy "Love & Other Drugs," which opened Wednesday. "We did it very methodically: I would cover. They'd bring me a towel. I'd get out of the car, go behind a screen and get redressed. All of a sudden, I hear a throat clear from behind the screen. It's Jake. 'Ah, Annie, so the thing is, in this scene, if it was really you and me in the car, I just think that, you know, ah, can I touch your boob?' "

"And ... I don't think you asked me this time," says Hathaway, turning to her screen partner to tease him about his behavior during the many love scenes they shot for their new project.

"I already asked. Your offer was still good," Gyllenhaal says with a shrug.

It's difficult to watch "Love & Other Drugs," a film about a young couple struggling to build a relationship in the mid-1990s, without being struck by the number of times Hathaway, 28, and Gyllenhaal, 29, are called upon to bare it all for the cameras. It's just not that often that you see two Oscar-nominated actors strip for sex scenes in a mainstream studio movie.

But the nudity, they insist, was never intended to be cheap or exploitative, though the movie's poster captures the actors in playful buff repose. Instead, it was a purposeful effort on the part of the actors and cowriter-director Ed Zwick to go beyond romantic comedy conventions and authentically depict every aspect of young love.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
