Jake Gyllenhaal shared with LA Weekly that he did not sleep much during the shooting of his new movie Nightcrawler.
"There wasn't a lot of sleeping going on," the 33-year-old actor shared. "Surprisingly, I had a lot of energy. L.A. is vibrating at night in a way that you'd never really know. I was not looking forward for the sun to rise, which is a strange headspace to be in. The sun would rise, and I would get sad."

The film has released a new trailer with star Jake Gyllenhaal is looking frantic and out of control. He transformed his body for the role and is looking very skinny. It is reported that he dropped over 20 pounds for the role. You can watch the latest trailer above.

the film stars Bill Paxton, Rene Russo and Riz Ahmed. This is Gilroy's film debut as a director.
Nightcrawler is scheduled to release from Open Road Films to theaters on Halloween, October 31st.
Jake got so into his role that he injured himself during one scene. "Jake was indeed filming "Nightcrawler" when during the shooting of an intense scene, his character (purposefully) banged his hand into the mirror," revealed his rep. "Unfortunately, the mirror broke and Jake's hand was badly cut up. He got numerous stitches at the ER and was released."
When E! asked Gyllenhaal if his mother was worried about his weight loss for the movie, he shared, "You're the first person to ask that question and I'd say my mother was worried," Gyllenhaal said. "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.
"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," he continued. "She'd be like, 'You're cranky-eat something.'"
