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.

What happens when you get Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey and Julia Roberts in the same room?
PEOPLE found out for you at Monday's Hollywood Film Awards – and we had a photo booth to document all of the behind-the-scenes action at the Beverly Hilton.
Among the first to work it for the cameras: Hollywood Supporting Actor Award honoree Jake Gyllenhaal, who was recognized for his work in Prisoners. Next up? Before Midnight costars (and Hollywood Screenwriter Award recipients) Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, who were photo-bombed by none other than Jack Black. (Aren't you glad what happens in the photo booth doesn't stay in the photo booth?)

Jake Gyllenhaal is enjoying a romantic summer in the city, taking a weekend bike ride with a new friend, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Alyssa Miller.
The affectionate duo was spotted at the Cold Process Coffee and Tea pop-up stand at New York's Pier 57 last Sunday around 3 p.m. As they ordered refreshments, the couple couldn't resist sneaking in a few sweet smacks on the lips.
An onlooker told PEOPLE that Gyllenhaal, 32, who was a presenter two weeks ago at the Tony Awards ceremony in New York, and brunette Miller, 23 , who made her SI debut in 2011, appeared to be more than just friends as they were sweetly affectionate with each other.

Who even knew they were friends?
Surprise besties Jake Gyllenhaal and Jay-Z kicked back at the rapper's 40/40 Club in New York City Monday night, watching the NCAA championship basketball game in the Owner's Lounge.
The two, joined by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, exchanged a big hug when they met up, then spent the evening snacking on the club's signature wings and sipping D'Usse cognac.
"No one was clearly rooting for one team over the other," a source tells PEOPLE, but "the group could be heard cheering excitingly throughout the entire game."
After Louisville beat Michigan, 82-76, the men called it a night, leaving the club one by one.

Taylor Swift isn't dwelling on being single.
In fact, the pop star, 23, acknowledges that there's always a chance she'll never be in a relationship again.
"I mean, I know where I'll be on tour in two months, but no idea where I'm going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes," she tells Wonderland magazine in its latest issue's cover story. "I have no idea if I'm going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own. You know, paint in a cottage by the ocean by myself. I just have no idea and I'm kind of into that."

Taylor Swift was anything but pleased when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler mocked her love life at the Golden Globes.
"You know, if you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people," Swift says in the March issue of Vanity Fair (available on newsstands March 7).
She continues, "The fact that there are slideshows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with ... it's just kind of ridiculous."
