Jake Gyllenhaal cried after his parents forbade him from acting in The Mighty Ducks

July 27, 2015 Jake Gyllenhaal, Howard Stern

Jake Gyllenhaal shared a tear-jerker of a story to Howard Stern when he recalled wanting to be part of the The Mighty Ducks movie.

The Southpaw actor auditioned for one of the central roles in the 1992 movie but his parents, director Stephen Gyllenhaal and screenwriter Naomi Foner, didn't let him accept the gig.

"I definitely remember crying on the kitchen counter," Gyllenhaal said. "I was like, 'You guys are crazy.'"

Gyllenhaal's parents liked the script but decided he should concentrate on school first.

"My parents were like, 'Look, you're about to enter junior high school, you gotta get your education, that's the most important thing. I promise you, you hate us now, but you’ll thank us later,'" Gyllenhaal said. "And I do."
