Jake Gyllenhaal freaked out by body double
London: Actor Jake Gyllenhaal freaked out when he saw his body double in new movie `Source Code`.
The 30-year-old star plays an injured helicopter pilot, Captain Colter Stevens, who is enabled by scientists to live the last eight minutes of another man`s life in order to try and stop a bomb in the science-fiction thriller, reports contactmusic.com.
And the actor admits he found it disturbing to be introduced to the prosthetic version of his character, which had electrodes wired up to `his` exposed brain.
"It was pretty creepy to behold. They had my eyes moving and my lips, it was quite freaky. The process of doing those things, making the cast and everything, is often even weirder than when you see the result of it because it`s so suffocating and strange," he said.
"But I`ve never seen something that looked so much like me and I even took a picture of it with me with my thumb up and then got really paranoid because I didn`t want anyone to like steal my phone and find my picture and be like, `That`s the `Source Code`!` The brilliance of the artistry of how they did it is what blew me away more than anything," he added.
