Upon further reflection, punching an actual mirror may not have been the best idea. Jake Gyllenhaal accidentally injured himself while shooting the upcoming thriller Nightcrawler, E! News has confirmed.
"During the shooting of the scene his character (purposefully) banged his hand into the mirror," the 32-year-old actor's rep explains. "Unfortunately the mirror broke and Jake's hand was badly cut up. He got numerous stitches at the ER and was released. He already returned to set for work."
