Jake Gyllenhaal shocked onlookers with his gaunt appearance at the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards on Monday night.
And while the 20lb weight loss was for his role as a freelance crime reporter who stumbles upon the dangerous underworld of Los Angeles in Nightcrawler, his new look is still alarming.
Gyllenhaal’s razor sharp cheekbones now protrude noticeably and the star insists he wanted his character Lou to be ‘literally and figuratively hungry’.
‘I knew that [Lou] was literally and figuratively hungry, [so I got into the] mode where I was always a bit hungry,’ he told Us Weekly.
他告诉 US 周刊：“我知道（卢）身体上和心理上都非常饥饿，所以我也要进入到永远都很饥饿的状态。”
When asked his tips for losing weight, Jake said, ‘I just love this movie. That’s how I did it. There really was no technique.’
