I was watching the movie “Love And Other Drugs” with Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal. A good comedy, drama romance between a woman with Parkinson’s and a man who isn’t defined as but veers toward sex and love addiction.
I jotted down this quote that Anne’s character says to him at a pivotal moment:
“…this isn’t about a connection for you. This isn’t even about sex for you. This is about finding an hour or two of relief from the pain of being you.”
That’s an important quote/a vital concept to remember when you start taking the acting out personally.
