Jake Gyllenhaal was taken to hospital after punching a mirror during an angry scene on the set of his new movie in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The 32-year-old actor, who is working on the thriller Nightcrawler, was badly cut and was treated in the emergency room. His hand required stitches. Sources on set insist the outburst was during an intense scene 'in character' following an 18-hour day on set. 'Jake flipped out,' an insider tells People magazine. 'His character was looking into a mirror during the scene and punched the mirror in anger and broke it, cutting himself so bad he had to be taken to a hospital.'

The source continued: 'The scene was emotionally charged and his character was talking into a mirror and he got so into it, he banged his hands against the mirror and it broke and cut him.

'It was all the scene and not because he was mad about anything else.' The star, who is in a relationship with 24-year-old model Alyssa Miller, returned to set following the ER visit.
