Jake Gyllenhaal talks about shooting movie in Pittsburgh

Jake Gyllenhaal Pittsburgh movie shoot

Jake Gyllenhaal professes a love for the city of Pittsburgh during the making of his movie "Love & Other Drugs" last year. He even sports a tattoo of the Steelers on his lower back. "I really legitimately had a wonderful time when I was in Pittsburgh."

Pressed about some favorite haunts, he says, "Oh, gosh. Let's see, I went to so many places. I like to eat. I ate my way around. I ate everywhere. I wish I could remember the names of everything."

Without any prompting, he recalls, "I loved Dish -- the restaurant Dish. I did love the pancakes at Pamela's, I'd have to say, which is probably the go-to. 21st Street Coffee. There was a Greek place that was right where I lived [in Squirrel Hill], I don't remember the name."

Mr. Gyllenhaal, who shot the Ed Zwick film from mid-September to late November 2009, says, "I was surprised at how much I loved all the food and actually how much I loved Pittsburgh. ... I loved the change of seasons there, and I loved the people there and I had a great time. I would love to make another movie in Pittsburgh."

"Love & Other Drugs" is based on the nonfiction book "Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman" by Jamie Reidy, who documented his experience as a Pfizer salesman.
