Jake Gyllenhaal’s prosthetic double freaked him out

Jake Gyllenhaal found his prosthetic body double creepy.

The actor needed the double while shooting scenes for Source Code, in which the 30-year-old plays injured helicopter pilot, Captain Colter Stevens.

“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,” Jake 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.”

“It’s now my pillow,” he said. “I wake up every morning and go, ‘Aaah, what a wonderful face to wake up to.’ ”
