Yes, that is really Jake Gyllenhaal. The actor was spotted looking shockingly skinny on the set of his upcoming flick Nightcrawler. Find out why he slimmed down to that extent. Whoa.
Jake Gyllenhaal looked shockingly skinny on the set of his upcoming flick Nightcrawler, revealing his thin frame while shooting a scene for the film in Studio City, Calif.
The actor, who lost 20 pounds to play a freelance crime reporter in the drama flick, first debuted his thinner frame on the red carpet of the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards Monday.
"I knew that my character [Lou] was literally and figuratively hungry, so I played him so he was always a bit hungry," Jake told reporters at the event, according to the San Francisco Gate. "I've lost probably a little over 20 pounds, something like that. It's no different to getting into character for anything. It's more about believing where you are and being present."
Jake is co-producing Nightcrawler with Tony Gilroy, which also stars Bill Paxton and Rene Russo.
The film is scheduled to be released next year.
