Jake Gyllenhaal

April 01, 2014

While on Bravo's Inside The Actors Studio, Gyllenhaal revealed he missed out on a chance to star in 1992's The Mighty Ducks because his parents wouldn't let him out of school to audition.

"I remember them saying, 'No.' That I was applying to junior high schools and that I had to apply," Gyllenhaal told host James Lipton. "I remember crying on the kitchen counter, telling them that I hated them."

Gyllenhaal then turned to his mother, who was in the audience, and said, "Mighty Ducks is a good movie. But ... whatever."
