London: Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal feels that he is most comfortable working on comedies.

The 29-year-old actor says that the most easy job is to make people laugh and one of his most enjoyable filmmaking experience was with actor Robert Downey Jr on his thriller film `Zodiac,` a website reported.

"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 but in terms of work, we meshed," said the actor.

The `Brokeback Mountain` star is very fond of his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal and thinks his pride in her acting career is one of the reasons why he is happy for his female co-stars to take the limelight ahead of him.

"I admire her and continue to admire her. 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," he added.

Gyllenhaal will soon be seen sharing screen space with Anne Hathaway in `Love and Other Drugs`. The actor says he was caught unawares with the number of scenes he had to strip
in.

"I was naked a lot in the movie. I was naked in more of it than was even in the final cut. A director`s cut? I don`t even know how that would be rated," he joked.
