Jake Gyllenhaal has given up on "exercising regularly" as his big screen roles don't call for it.

The 31-year-old actor says his gruelling workouts are a thing of the past. Jake admits he does still care about his appearance but has relaxed his exercise routine as his movie roles no longer require such intense preparation.

“I haven't cycled in a long time. I don't run anymore,” Jake revealed to Details magazine about his latest film role in An Enemy. “Do I take care of my body and take conditioning seriously? Yes. But exercising regularly doesn't fit the energy of the character I'm playing now.”

An Enemy follows a man who seeks out his exact look-alike after spotting him in a movie.

The Hollywood actor has previously undergone serious physically conditioning to get in shape for his action movies such as police thriller End Of Watch.

Jake spent five months prepping for the 22-day shoot, which was an exhausting time in his life.

"Three nights a week in ride-alongs with cops," Jake recalled about the gruelling regime. "[We had] fight training every morning at a Kenbo Karate dojo, and I got the sh*t kicked out of me. Then [we went to] the shooting range, shooting past each other's heads, with live ammo."
