Jake Gyllenhaal Hospitalized After Punching Mirror on Set

Jake Gyllenhaal was hospitalized on Wednesday morning (November 13) after punching a mirror and injuring his hand on the set of his latest movie Nightcrawler.

Jake flipped out,” a source told People about the 32-year-old actor’s incident. “His character was looking into a mirror during the scene and punched the mirror in anger and broke it, cutting himself so bad he had to be taken to a hospital.”

“The scene was emotionally charged and his character was talking into a mirror and he got so into it, he banged his hands against the mirror and it broke and cut him,” another source said about the event, which caused Jake to get some stitches. “It was all the scene and not because he was mad about anything else.”

Jake was indeed filming Nightcrawler when during the shooting of the scene his character (purposefully) banged his hand into the mirror,” his rep confirmed to ET Canada. “Unfortunately the mirror broke and Jake’s hand was badly cut up. He got numerous stitches at the ER and was released. He already returned to set for work.”

Why does he look middle aged?

He’s never going to get his looks back. Oh and yeah speedy recovery, dude.

the mirror always wins

LOL, Jake is trying sooooooo hard to get an Oscar it’s funny.

The extreme weight loss, the getting so into the role and putting yourself in the hospital. Calm down’s just a movie. These actors take themselves way too seriously.

After these actors lose the weight for these roles, they never fully recover their ruggedly good handsome looks and Matthew McConaughey is a great example. However Christian Bale was lucky enough to get his mojo back soon after.

Ammmm … Apocalypse now … anyone? No matter how much of a Martin Sheen you pull, doubt the result will be the same. But hey, feel better soon!

Well, that’s stupid!

I feel sorry for him for injuring himself as a method acting but only to be seen as a joke.
Talking about method acting with mirrors, James Franco still wins.

Stupid thing to do. I’m thinking maybe some of his personal life crept into that scene. Lots of actors hit things and don’t actually injure themselves bad enough to need stitches. Something else going on with this dude.

He looks so sick. But a good actor.

Did Alyssa go to the ER with him?

the mirror has two faces
straight and gay

Jake does get very intense when shooting scenes, so this isn’t shocking to me.

This guy is gross.

Old looking for 32!

Man is he desperate to get an Oscar nomination. Campaigning left and right now losing weight and cutting his hand to prove how ~method he is. Too bad he’s as average an actor as ever. His soft feminine voice isn’t doing him any favors either.

Jake must have seen my face in the mirror

putana Jackie, nobody wants to hear about your cat’s bum face, just like nobody visits your sh*tty blog :))))))))))))

Get well soon!

Oh Jake. What happened to you? I used to like you but all the lame beards, the method acting style and the “no homo” attitude has gotta go. This act is just getting tiresome.

I hope he is going to be ok most likely he lacerated some arteries. That can effective his range of motion forever.

Trying too hard to be a great actor. The really great ones don’t have to try. Too bad some of them died so young.
