Watch your back, Christian Bale. Jake Gyllenhaal is coming after your I-can-physically-transform-into-any-character M.O.
First, the actor slimmed down for Nightcrawler. Now, he appears to have swapped the juice cleanses for some Rocky-style egg-yolk shooters. How else to explain the rock-hard abs and waves of muscles the now-beefy star is sporting in Southpaw?
Deadline has the exclusive photo of Jake G. in boxer beast mode. The 33-year-old Oscar nominee reportedly gained 15 pounds of pure muscle to portray junior middleweight champion Billy “The Great” Hope. Dude could seriously use Nightcrawler Jake as a toothpick. Seriously, the before-and-after comparison is insane.
