10 Celebrities Who’ve Dropped Serious Pounds For Roles

Jake Gyllenhaal & 13 Other Actors Who've Lost Serious Weight For Film Roles

Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest in a long line of celebs to drop a pretty shocking amount of weight for a role. In recent days, Gyllenhaal has been spotted filming the movie “Nightcrawler” in Los Angeles, looking downright frail. I love the dude’s bone structure, trust, but those cheekbones are positively skeletal. Lest you think he’s playing a drug addict or, I dunno, cancer patient in the film, he’s actually portraying a journalist who stumbles upon some underground crime ring. You know us writers — so malnourished! So, what other celebs have gone to dieting extremes for the sake of their craft? Who lost the most? How did they do it? Click through to find out!

Samantha Ronson Photographed With Mysterious, Unidentified Twin Sister

The caption on this photo in Splash reads: “Samantha Ronson out with a mystery woman in NYC.” The photo agency is clearly trying to be all wink, wink, nudge, nudge, implying that Sam is on a date with a new woman and not Lindsay Lohan.

Quotable: Nick Cannon Lost His Virginity To An Older Woman And Cried About It

“I was always a little attracted to women that were a little older than me. I even lost my virginity to an older lady. …. I actually ended up crying at the end of the whole ordeal. She was in high school and I was in junior high …we were in a sleeping bag … I said we should change positions, she was like “just get off me!” She ran into the bathroom with all of her friends and they were in there laughing … I vowed from that day forward no woman would ever laugh at me in the sack again and that’s when the ‘Cannon’ was born!”

The Internet’s Made Young People Lonelier Than Ever!

Quick everyone—let’s blame the internet! A report published recently by the Mental Heath Foundation found that nearly 60 percent of people in the U.K. between the ages of 18 and 24 admit to feeling lonely “sometimes” or “often,” while the same applies for only 35 percent of folks over the age of 55. I guess the assumption is that young people in the prime of their lives are supposed to be having the time of their lives so they can spend their 50s talking about it? [Daily Mail]

I don’t know. What went wrong that we’re all at least a little lonely? Yes, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that things have changed since the advent of social networking sites. But there have got to be some other reasons for this shift. Here are 10 I think are particularly salient. Keep reading »
