Jake Gyllenhaal Suggested Tattoos for 'Prisoners' Character

The day before, the 32-year-old actor was spotted keeping his hood on after breaking a sweat at a gym in New York City.

Jake is currently in the UK to promote his new flick Prisoners, which hits theaters there on Friday, September 27!

In case you forgot, Prisoners took the top spot at the U.S. box office, raking in $21.4 million!

Jake came up with the idea of the tattoos and the freemason ring and the facial tics. All of that further accentuated that mysteriousness, where you’re never quite sure what his story is. You get a good sense of him as a person but the question always lingers,” Prisoners screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski shared to TheWrap about Jake creating a back story for his character.

I’m a fan of Jake, and I think he looks just terrible. He has lost too much weight. These actors who lose all this weight and then you see them at the gym working out, they can have a heart attack from that. It is not healthy. He is crazy, there is no role that is worth it. Matthew McConnaughey and Christian Bale did it, and Matthew still hasn’t got over it. he had supervision from a trainer and a doctor too. I bet Jake is just doing it on his own.

That greasy hair and the full beard looks disgusting too. If this is how he will look for some movie then I don’t think I’ll be seeing that movie. Part of the perks of being a Jake fan is that he is so good looking. there’s lots of ugly actors who are probably good actors. But your first impression of anybody is how they look. Sad but true. And if you look gross, the rest doesn’t matter. I’m talking about actors, not my personal friends.

he looks too thin and I don’t like his hair or beard. he looks old for 32. trying to keep up with a 24 year old gf is taking it’s toll lol…

@pickles: I agree, he looks terrible and not healthy at all. What role is he losing all the weight for?

# 4

Hate to say it, but he looks like he’s been on a drinking/drug binge. Even dressed in that suit he looks that way.

# 5

I hope Alyssa Miller isn’t behind this downfall in his looks. I can’t believe she would want him to look like this though. It’s weird, since he’s been seeing her his appearance has really changed. hope it’s just a coincidence.

HE LOOKS AWFUL

# 7

@canada: I saw some News that he is losing weight for his new movie ‘Nightcrawler’, which begins shooting Oct. 6 in Los Angeles

# 8

Yes, I read that too. It’s for a movie he will be shooting. But like I said. If he is going to look that gross in a movie I don’t plan to see it.

“If he is going to look that gross in a movie I don’t plan to see it.”

What kind of silly and superficial is that?

@pickles: I can appreciate a good looking lead actor too (who doesn’t) but you’re missing out on a lot of really good movies by skipping a movie just cuz you think the actor isn’t pretty enough. Why limit yourself?

Is the greasy hair and beard for the next movie too?

@Kasia: totally agree

is the movie about some druggie or sick person?

@jilli: He will play as a freelance L.A. crime repórter. Well is a indie movie so i believe will be dark.

@george: Looks so, the movie is called Nightcrawler

I’ve always thought he was weird and creepy looking. His eyes are too big, almost doll like. Even when he was bulked up I thought he was ugly.

@<a href="/2013/09/23/jake-gyllenhaal-suggested-tattoos-for-prisoners-character/comment-page-1/#comment-28127812"@European: why would he have to be skinny to play that role?

@jilli: A young man stumbles upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism.

UGLY UGLY UGLY!!

@adam: tattoos were for Prisoners, weight loss is for Nightcrawler

@adam: I believe is bc this is how his character will looks like.

I have this feeling Jake will not live to be an old man

Did that model girl, Melissa or whoever, go to London with him?

@Yvette: wow, you must be a very deep person ….. um not

@Lady Zelda: hey you bite your tongue jinx!
