Jake Gyllenhaal looked a little different on Monday’s red carpet for the Hollywood Film Awards.

The actor showed off a thinner frame and face, the result of dramatic weight loss as he prepares for Nightcrawler, in which Gyllenhaal plays a crime reporter who explores the underworld of Los Angeles.

At left is a picture of Gyllenhaal in June; at right is how he looked on Monday (see larger version below).

According to some reports, the star says he lost approximately 20 pounds for the role.

Of course, Gyllenhaal isn’t the only actor to undergo a major physical transformation for a project.

On one end of the scale, Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey revealed startling weight loss for their upcoming HIV drama Dallas Buyers Club.

Chris Pratt, meanwhile, got ripped for the superhero movie Guardians of the Galaxy.
