Mark Ruffalo, who plays a sperm donor in new movie "The Kids Are All Right," contemplated donating sperm when he was a teenager.
He explained, "I would have had a lot more pocket money back then. That would have been a first job I could have excelled at!"
In his new film, the son of a same-sex couple seeks out the sperm donor (Ruffalo) who made his birth possible. The committed parents of two teenage children, Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore), are about to send their daughter, Joni (Mia Wasikowska), off to college when her younger brother, Laser (Josh Hutcherson), asks for her help in tracking down his biological father. Reluctantly inquiring with the sperm bank, Joni leaves her number so the office can pass it along to Laser's father.
