Jake Gyllenhaal explains dramatic weight loss for ‘Nightcrawler’

BY PAUL MICHAEL CAMANIA JARAMILLO



Jake Gyllenhaal shocked onlookers with his gaunt appearance at the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Monday, October 21.

The 32-year-old actor dramatically changed his appearance by dropping a significant amount of weight for his role in “Nightcrawler,” reports Us Weekly.



"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."



Gyllenhaal isn't the only Hollywood hunk to have dramatically lost weight for a role. Christian Bale lost a whopping 65 pounds to play the role of an insomniac industrial worker in 2004's "The Machinist," and Matthew McConaughey shed 50 pounds to play a HIV-positive man in the upcoming "Dallas Buyers Club." 

When asked his tips for losing weight, Gyllenhaal said: 

"I just love this movie. That’s how I did it. There really was no technique."
