Jake Gyllenhaal has undergone yet another dramatic body transformation!
Following his weight-loss for Nightcrawler earlier this year, he has now gone in a completely different direction and piled on a reported 7kg of muscle for new movie, Southpaw.
Jake is playing the role of Billy 'The Great' Hope in the upcoming movie and the director, Antoine Fuqua, has said that they "turned him into a beast" for the role: "Jake is going to change how people see him. I had him training twice a day in the boxing ring. He did two-a-day seven days a week."
Jake lost 10kg to play Lou Bloom in the critically acclaimed Nightcrawler but it seems he wasn’t long looking for his next challenging role!
Is he following in Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar dreams?
