Gyllenhaal Wanted to be a Chef

London, Dec 14 (IANS) Jake Gyllenhaal has revealed he wanted to be a chef or a soccer player when he was younger.

The "Love and Other Drugs" star who landed his first acting role in "City Slickers" when he was 10, had many varied ambitions as a child, and though he eventually settled on acting, he admits his parents weren't too thrilled at first, reports

"I wanted to be a chef. I have always loved cooking. I also wanted to be a professional soccer player. But my parents enslaved me into acting as a young child and it's been a really tough life," he said.

"They let me audition for things. But they didn't expect me to get cast, which is funny, I didn't either. So when I did get cast, they wanted me to stay in school," he added.
