Jake Gyllenhaal on Jennifer Aniston: ‘I Had a Crush on Her for Years'
Actor Jake Gyllenhaal recently sat down with People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle, making a surprising revelation about Jennifer Aniston, who he joked was “a rough one. Not likable. So hard to compliment."
Jake worked with Jennifer at the age of 22 in the 2002 film “The Good Girl.” He said, "I will say, I had a crush on her for years. And working with her was not easy. I was — um, yeah. That's all I'm going to say. It was lovely. It wasn't hard, that's what I would say.”
When asked if he developed his crush on Jennifer when she was on "Friends," Jake answered, "Not so much 'Friends,' but kind of her personality from afar, and movies she was in. And some of 'Friends' — I'm not a huge 'Friends' fan — but who she is.”
Jake has been busy promoting his film “Demolition,” which is in theaters April 8.
