When it comes to getting naked on-camera, some actresses do it, and some don't. Those that do inevitably explain that they are only willing to do so when nudity is fundamental to the story or the character, not just incidental or lecherous. In Love and Other Drugs, in theaters tomorrow, co-stars Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal are naked a lot (or nekkid, as David Edelstein put it). So inevitably, Hathaway would like to be clear that the nudity is not at all gratuitous: "We didn't want to lose the film's energy in these [nude] scenes. And I think that is what resulted in the film. It's less of nudity and more of intimacy." We couldn't agree more! The movie, in which Gyllenhaal plays a drug salesman and Hathaway an artist with early onset Parkinsons, is about a passionate, intense couple, the kind of couple that wouldn't have sex or pillow talk under covers, arms clamped at their sides, firmly over the sheets. So to further Hathaway's argument, that the very naked Love and Other Drugs is naked because it has to be, artistically of course, we've supplied compelling justifications for all six instance of female nudity in the film.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
