We have some advice for the 25 guys who will soon find themselves vying for the affections of Jen Schefft on The Bachelorette: Act mortified. "I went onto the first show reluctant – my friends had to convince me to do it," Schefft says of her first reality-romance experience, as a contestant on The Bachelor. "I'm more likely to be attracted to the guys who are also reluctant to be on the show. The ones who seem too eager I probably will be less interested in." In other words, she didn't want to be on a reality show in the first place, but she's going on a second time and looking for someone who also doesn't want to be there. Got that, guys? The show begins filming in October and is set to air in January.

The heist flick Criminal (opening Sept. 10) is anything but a romance, but the stylish thriller starring John C. Reilly (Chicago, Boogie Nights) does have at least one tender moment: a kiss between Maggie Gyllenhaal, 26, and Mexican heartthrob Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien), 24. But before you get all excited about a new on-set romance, the stars say the smooch was not the steamiest. "Kissing him was just sweet," says Gyllenhaal. "Diego seems like he could be a friend of my brother's (actor Jake, 23). He's a little younger than me. He's like a cutie pie! It actually wasn't, like, that hot thing. It was sweet and lovely." As for his experience with Gyllenhaal, Luna says: "I have to say with Maggie, the greatest thing is that there's always a lot happening in her eyes. You can see a lot of what she's feeling. She has very expressive eyes. You see everything through her."
