This dude is looking rockin'!

Jake Gyllenhaal is eager to prove that he's a serious actor and is ready for the big leagues like his fellow actor brethren.

And everyone knows that to be considered serious - you have to go through weight transformations like nobody's business!

Which is what Jake did when he got super skinny for Nightcrawler, and he happened to go the opposite way by getting extremely buff for his newest role in Southpaw.

The movie was written by Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and is directed by the dude who also helmed Training DayAntoine Fuqua.

Here's what Fuqua had to say about Jake Gyllenhaal's transformation:

"I'm so pumped, man. Jake is going to change how people see him. I had him training twice a day in the boxing ring, he did two-a-days seven days a week. I pretty much had him with me and my trainer every day. I took him to almost every fight. I had him train at Floyd Mayweather's gym in Vegas and we watched Floyd's fights, and the Manny Pacquiao fight. He trained in New York at Church Gym with real fighters. We literally turned him into a beast… Jake, my god, he's a very electric, powerful fighter in this movie, and a guy who fights for his daughter. I'm confident that this will change how people see Jake, as a leading man."

And not only that but Fuqua believes Jake Gyllenhaal was SO dedicated that he ended up breaking up with girlfriend because of this movie! The director said:

"I think he broke up with his girlfriend because he was just in the gym every day. He was training like a fighter. I had him sparring, really getting hit. I put him in situations where I wanted to see what he was made of. No one but fighters understand the sacrifice it takes to be a fighter."

From the look of Jake in the photo, it seems he definitely knows what it takes to be a fighter now!

Hey - maybe he'll be so good that he'll quit acting and head into the boxing world!

It's been done before!!!

    I could care less about his sexuality. I admire his dedication to his film. It's usually crazy fanatics that worry about such nonsense. It doesn't matter it not like He will ever sleep with you. Rhette so mind your business!
