Jake Gyllenhaal must have really been in character!! The actor was sent to the hospital on Wednesday after he punched a mirror while filming a scene for his new movie, Nightcrawler. “Jake flipped out,” a Nightcrawler source told PEOPLE. “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.”
Gyllenhaal needed stitches in the emergency room, but a source says the it was just a scene gone wrong.”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,” the source close to Gyllenhaal says. “It was all the scene and not because he was mad about anything else.” Its unclear if Gyllenhaal was still in character or something was bothering him…nonetheless he returned to set later that day.
