Jake Gyllenhaal as Holden kissing Jennifer Aniston (Justine) in The Good Girl (2002)

"It's inevitably uncomfortable", Gyllenhall said. "It's inevitably awkward. And everybody's in on it. No matter how intimate it is, everybody's in on it. Occasionally, I've been into it. I won't talk about with whom."Gyllenhaal, joined on stage by film critic David Denby and director of his latest film "Love & Other Drugs" Ed Zwick, said it's hard to get hot and heavy when there's a crew watching.

"There's this weird sense of being watched," he confessed. "If you've ever made out with anybody and you know you're being watched, you can't help but watch yourself. And that just takes the sexiness right out of it."
He also spoke openly about his infamous on-screen kiss with Heath Ledger in the 2005 Oscar-nominated "Brokeback Mountain."

"This has been hard for me to explain for years," he said. "It was about more than just kissing. We had very little to do with that scene being as powerful as it was." He quipped, "So we just basically went up and slammed our mouths together. We were the instruments for something that was much bigger than both of us." Source: www.nbcnewyork.com
