At 34, Jake Gyllenhaal has become a staple of the big screen. And he's not only nice to look at, but this boy can act!
Although he appeared on screen as early as 1991 (in a small part in City Slickers as Billy Crystal's son), he landed his first major role in 1999 in the biopic October Sky. He has made 26 films in total.
Back when Jake first started his career, he was a handsome young stud with a slim build and boy next door good looks. Last year, he appeared in Nightcrawler and lost a lot of weight, looking even skinnier than he did 10 years earlier. And then this year, in Southpaw, he not only bulked up, but also became quite ripped and chiselled.
