Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Jake Gyl­len­haal (right) was a changed man af­ter train­ing for the up­com­ing sports drama film, Southpaw. The 34-year-old un­der­went rig­or­ous train­ing to pre­pare for his role of Billy Hope, a box­ing cham­pion who’s at­tempt­ing to get his life back on track. But the tough reg­i­men didn’t just trans­form him phys­i­cally. Gyl­len­haal went from a slight 147 pounds to a ripped 175 pounds in just six months, re­vealed trainer Terry Clay­bon, who whipped Jake into shape for Southpaw. “He wasn’t in shape at all. We met at a box­ing gym, and he was jump­ing rope. Just the way he was jump­ing rope, I knew we had a lot of work to do,” Clay­bon said. “He trained as if he was hav­ing a pro­fes­sional box­ing match,” he added.
