Jake Gyllenhaal Looks Scary Skinny on 'Nightcrawler' Film Set
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.
