Ryan Seacrest’s Awkward Jake Gyllenhaal Globes Interview
5:59 PM PST 1/17/2011 by Annie Yuan
The E! host made the nominee visibly uncomfortable with blunt questions about his raunchy role in “Love and Other Drugs.”
Ricky Gervais wasn’t the only one who made the Golden Globes awkward Sunday night.
Watch Ryan Seacrest’s cringe-inducing interview with Jake Gyllenhaal, below, during E!’s live red carpet coverage, in which the American Idol host pestered the Love and Other Drugs actor with questions about the film’s multiple nude scenes.
“So you’re a Viagra salesman,” he said to Gyllenhaal. “Did you have to test run the product?”
“I’m actually an actor,” the bemused best actor in a musical or comedy nominee responded. “But it’s okay, you’re a busy guy. I don’t expect you to remember everyone.”
Seacrest pressed on until Gyllenhaal responded: “No, no, no, no, no… why, do you look like you have some experience?”
Seacrest then made multiple grabs at Gyllenhaal’s pants pocket. “I was just going to ask, can I borrow some? Is there any in your pocket?”
“Dude, you just tapped my hip!” Gyllenhaal protested, at which pointed the exchange ended.
