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.”
