Jake Gyllenhaal has said that one of his most enjoyable acting experiences was working with Robert Downey Jr.

The Love and Other Drugs actor told Esquire that he felt comfortable building a rapport with Downey Jr when the pair starred together in Zodiac.

Gyllenhaal said: "Where am I most at ease? I think comedy.

"That's why I loved working with Robert Downey Jr. He and I had this similar kind of working. His energy is a bit more frenetic than mine but in terms of work, we meshed."

He added that his respect for sister Maggie makes him happy to share the limelight with his female co-stars.

"I admire her and continue to admire her," he said. "That might play into the reason I don't have much of a problem letting the women I've worked with shine. I love women."
