If Jake Gyllenhaal is willing to transform his body for a role, the role must be one AH-MAZING opportunity!
And it totally sounds like Jake's upcoming thriller, Nightcrawler, is going to be nothing short! We mean, when we hear about how willing he was to get into his new gaunt and thin look, we KNOW it's serious business!
Just look at the 32-year-old attending the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards on Monday, looking completely different (above)!
He'll be playing a freelance crime reporter named Lou who finds himself in the decrepit underground world of Los Angeles. Here's what he said about his new look and the role:
"It takes place in a land where I think there is a desert in a lot of ways, great opulence, and at the same time, great vastness and emptiness. I knew that [Lou] was literally and figuratively hungry. [So I got into a] mode where I was always a bit hungry."
So what did it take to get into that mode?
Almost nothing special, he says:
"I just love this movie. That’s how I did it. There really was no technique."
We just hope that his "no technique" is healthy!
We're sure he wouldn't put himself in danger — but he could never be too careful!
Oh, and we totes can't wait to see all his effort on the big screen! Sounds terrifying!!
