Jake Gyllenhaal was devasted after his parent wouldn't allow him to star in 1992 ice hockey movie "The Mighty Ducks." They wouldn't allow him to make a film while he was studying.
 
The actor movie debut in "City Slickers" the year before, but his parents wanted him to focus on school work, not film.

Gyllenhaal recalls: "I was about to apply to junior high school and it was The Mighty Ducks, and I remember them saying no... I remember crying on the kitchen counter, telling them that I hated them. The Mighty Ducks is a good movie."

The actor currently stars in "Prisoners" alongside Hugh Jackman about a man whose daughter is kidnapped and takes matters into his own hands after police fumble the investigation.
