Actor Jake Gyllenhaal Dumped His Model Girlfriend So He Could Workout For A Role


Actor Jake Gyllenhaal was reportedly spending time packing on muscle for his role as a boxer in new film Southpaw.

However, it turns out Jake’s 25-year-old model girlfriend didn’t like him working out so much. It was reportedly his constant training that led to the end of their relationship.


In an interview with Deadline, Southpaw’s director, Antoine Fuqua, revealed: “Literally. I think he broke up with his girlfriend because he was just in the gym every day.

“He was training like a fighter. I had him sparring, really getting hit. I put him in situations where I wanted to see what he was made of. No one but fighters understand the sacrifice it takes to be a fighter.”

Not sure we want to know in real life, but sure.

He added: “Jake is going to change how people see him. I had him training twice a day in the boxing ring, he did two-a-days seven days a week. 

“I pretty much had him with me and my trainer every day. I took him to almost every fight. I had him train at Floyd Mayweather’s gym in Vegas and we watched Floyd’s fights, and the Manny Pacquiao fight. He trained in New York at Church Gym with real fighters.
