Jake Gyllenhaal’s Boy Band Past — Actor Reveals Secret On The Ellen DeGeneres Show
After talking about Jake’s new gig in “Little House Of Horrors,” Ellen said, “I haven’t seen you sing before and then I found out you were in a band when you were younger.”
“I was in a really, really bad band when I was in high school,”Jake said while laughing. “The name of the band was Whole Shot.”
And OF COURSE Ellen had a picture of the boy band back in the day — SO funny! Jake looked so embarrassed, squirming in his seat when Ellen showed the whole audience the picture. “That’s one good looking band right there,” he said with a red face.
“Were wrote our own music….I was just a lyricist,” Jake said. Ugh, he is just too cute! Who knew he could get any cuter, but after this interview with Ellen, we think we have fallen in love all over again.
