Jake Gyllenhaal: 'I Saw Murder With Police'
Star reveals he witnessed a murder on ride-along trip with cops...
Jake Gyllenhaalhas revealed that he saw somebody get murdered when he went for a "ride along" with police in Los Angeles.
The star went out with LA officers as part of his preparations for his role in new movie End Of Watch - in which he plays a cop.
He told Hitfix: "This movie changed my life. I mean, the experience of it... every step along the way I learned something about myself. And I saw the world in a different way.
"The first ride I went on I saw someone murdered. It changes your life. You don't come back from something like that and not see the world a different way.
"And subsequently, everything from domestic violence to stolen cars to you name it. And along with the camaraderie and the friendship and the joking and all of that, seeing that for real for five months and shooting for 22 days? And seeing it for real? I won't be the same in many, many good ways."
The movie centres on the bond between Jake's character and his on-screen partner Michael Pena.
He has previously revealed that he agreed to have a taser gun fired at him so he knew what it felt like.
End Of Watch is released in the UK on 23 November.
Jake revealed this week that he would consider appearing in the movie version of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
