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.[contentblock id=1 img=adsense.png]

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.
