They say a good actor will do anything for his craft, including shedding a ton of weight.

Jake Gyllenhaal did that just — 30 pounds to be exact — to play underground crime scene videographer Lou Bloom in the thriller Nightcrawler, which opens today in theaters.

The actor committed his mind and body to the role so much that even his mom got concerned.

Jake revealed in a recent interview:

"She'd be like, 'You're cranky—eat something.'"

He added:

"She just wanted me to be careful. But she also knew and knows how seriously I take what I do and she respects that."

Thankfully, since then he has buffed back up and returned to his Gyllenhawtness.

Of course, he's not the only star who's starved themselves for a part. Find out who dropped a whopping 60 pounds in the gallery below.

    there's a awful lot of fat people out there who seem to think this is "skinny." By medical standards, Jake is normal weight in this photo.
