Jake isn't dealing with anger management issues--rather a new film role landed him in the hospital!

He was on the set of his film Nightcrawler when, according to a source, "Jake flipped out."

The insider added, "His character was looking into a mirror during the scene and punched the mirror in anger and broke it, cutting himself so bad he had to be taken to a hospital."


Jake reportedly received stitches in the hospital emergency room but returned to set later the same day.

A source told People.com, "The scene was emotionally charged and his character was talking into a mirror and he got so into it, he banged his hands against the mirror and it broke and cut him."

The source added, "It was all the scene and not because he was mad about anything else."

Committing to a character can be painful, it seems.
