The 33-year-old actor, who was honored at the dinner, was joined by his Nightcrawler co-star Rene Russo and director Dan Gilroy.
“I’d say my mother was worried. I would say she just wanted me to be careful. But she also knew and knows how seriously I take what I do and she respects that,” Jake shared to E! about his weight loss for Nightcrawler at the premiere.
He added, “She knows that I’m a big boy and I could handle myself and that I would stay within the realm of being safe, but yes, she worried. She’d be like, ‘You’re cranky—eat something.’”
