Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest actor to drop major weight for a movie, but he says it's really not that different from prepping for any role.
"I think [I've lost] probably a little over 20 pounds, something like that," the actor, 32, told PEOPLE Monday on the red carpet at the Hollywood Film Awards, where he looked noticeably thinner as he was honored for his role in Prisoners.
While he may look different, his approach hasn't changed as he prepares for Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal said.

Calling all house-hunting movie buffs: If you recognize the source of this line – "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize" – and appreciate Southern architecture, get your bids ready.
The historic Louisiana residence where the all-star 1989 movie Steel Magnolias was filmed is being placed on the auction block Oct. 26, along with all the antiques and furnishings inside it.
Built in 1840, the movie stomping ground of Shirley MacLaine, Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis, Daryl Hannah and Julia Roberts in the town of Natchitoches was used as a hospital during the Civil War and recently operated as a bed-and-breakfast. Like the women in the movie, it epitomizes Southern character – genteel on the outside but strong of foundation.

They were hanging out at Comic-Con over the summer, they're working on The Expendables 3 and, just this week, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were pictured having a back-slapping good time at lunch in New York City as they prepared to promote their latest flick, Escape Plan.
But the two action stars weren't always so chummy.
In 1982, Sylvester Stallone's Rocky III was in movie theaters – and so was his rival action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger's Conan the Barbarian. By 1984, a muscle-bound Schwarzenegger was the Terminator, while an equally brawny Stallone was basking in the box-office success of his Rambo franchise – and neither star wanted to concede the crown of world's manliest man.
