But his new appearance isn't the result of anything short of losing weight for his role in the upcoming movie Nightcrawler.

The A-lister showed up to the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards on Monday looking unrecognizable sporting sunken cheekbones and a bony body.

Jake opened up during an interview about his shrinking frame, saying, “I knew that [Lou] was literally and figuratively hungry,” he said of his role as crime reporter, “It takes place in a land where I think there is a desert in a lot of ways, great opulence, and at the same time, great vastness and emptiness," adding, to fully embrace his role he, "stayed in a “mode where I was always a bit hungry.”

Now that's dedication!
