Dishing on who’s up and who’s down in the entertainment world, Vinay Menon weighs in on stars breaking up with who, why his documentary “Love Me Now” was the most-viewed movie on YouTube and why Jake Gyllenhaal should consider himself lucky: “I personally think that celebrities should be careful about their relationships. I mean, they are people who are in charge of managing their image, which means they are very concerned with the public perception of their relationships and I think that there’s a line. That line should have been crossed and they definitely crossed it and I think it’s a bad move because it has tarnished their brand.”

Menon’s “Love Me Now” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in August and went on to garner 21 million views on YouTube to date. Menon shares why his film was so loved with FOX411:
“Love Me Now” is basically about how to make an informed and happy marriage. I figured if I’m going to meet somebody, I’m going to marry somebody that I am willing to commit myself to for the long haul, for the longterm and that means I need to be good at communication. So what we used the expertise of a really well-respected communication coach in this movie to show married couples how to do that.
Three of the couples in the movie are still together today and one couple is getting divorced and we also made a pro and con list on why they stayed together and why they ended up separating.
I was going to cry and then I kept finding it funny because we all thought this is happening and this is what the client was going to say.
And it made me feel better about that because they were really good at communicating and loving, but sometimes you have to realize that you can’t love somebody if you don’t make them feel heard and felt wanted.
I actually felt I was breaking news. There was so much research involved in making this movie that I think it was a good look and I think everybody had a lot of fun making it. And not only making the movie, but just having people come up and tell us stories from their journey. It was an incredibly rewarding and engaging experience that I’ll never forget.
