When Anne Hathaway reunites with her Brokeback Mountain costar Jake Gyllenhaal for Love & Other Drugs (in theaters November 24), the actress hopes audiences aren't scared away by the film's raunchy sex scenes.

"This movie certainly has a lot of nerve," Hathaway, 27, tells the November issue of Vogue.

In the film, Hathaway plays a free-spirit named Maggie who hooks up with a Viagra salesman named Jamie (Gyllenhaal) -- roles that required both actors to strip for the cameras.

"These are people who have no trouble taking their clothes off -- in a way, their bodies are their currency," she explains. "But they're terrified of exposing their vulnerability, of becoming emotionally naked."

But Hathaway admits that unlike her character, she didn't feel nearly as comfortable exposing herself emotionally and sexually.

"I was a wreck from start to finish. I think I cried every single day," she says. "I had to lean so much more heavily on everyone around me than I'm used to. I’m used to pulling my own weight. But I totally fell apart."

But fortunately for the actress, she had a new man in her life to help her pick up the pieces: actor Adam Shulman.

"We hit it off immediately, but it took us a pretty long time to get together," Hathaway recalls. After they realized they were both single, the actress reveals that "thing sped up a bit -- and I think I'll leave it at that."
