Jake Gyllenhaal Sent to the Emergency Room

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- There’s method acting, and then there’s Jake Gyllenhaal.

The Oscar-nominated actor was taken to the hospital Wednesday after shooting a scene for a new movie resulted in an injury to the Brokeback Mountain star’s hand.

“Jake was indeed filming [the movie] Nightcrawler when during the shooting of the scene his character (purposefully) banged his hand into the mirror,” a source close to the actor told ABC News. “Unfortunately the mirror broke and Jake’s hand was badly cut up.”

Gyllenhaal, 32, has already returned to work on the film.

“He got numerous stitches at the ER and was released,” the source added.

Make sure to look out for that scene when Nightcrawler hits theaters next year. Gyllenhaal has reportedly lost double-digit pounds in preparation for the role.
