Jake Gyllenhaal Jokes About His Injury on Ellen

Jake Gyllenhaal Finds the Humor in His Hand Injury

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to get Jake Gyllenhaal to crack jokes about the hand injury that landed him in the hospital. Jake explained his mysterious on-set injury during an appearance on Ellen's show, telling her that he was forced to get stitches after banging it on her front gate. Jake showed his recovering hand to the audience and shared the real story: he punched a mirror in the middle of a scene for his next movie, Nightcrawler. "That was a mixture of excitement and also horror," Jake said. Ellen was prompted to add: "That's what I like to give my audience here. They come for the excitement and stay for the horror."

The dedicated actor said he stayed in character after injuring himself, and the bloody mess will be in the film. The conversation wasn't completely gory, though — Jake also discussed his upcoming birthday on Dec. 19, saying he doesn't yet have plans. Ellen wouldn't let Jake leave empty-handed, though, and she gave him a nostalgic gift from the '90s. "How did you just blow my mind?!" he told her. Watch the clip to find out what Ellen gave him and watch the full interview when it airs in Monday's episode.
