Jake Gyllenhaal Hated His Childhood Halloween Costumes

2013 Variety Screening Series Presents Warner Bros. "Prisoners"

It’s not unusual that parents buy their kids horrid Halloween costumes, but what about those children that have to wear extremely embarrassing home-made costumes?

Well, Jack Gyllenhaal was one of those poor kids.

Namely, while speaking to Conan host Conan O’Brien on Thursday night, Jack shared some of his shameful Halloween costume stories and revealed that his dad really loved to make Halloween costumes.

“One year, I was a cranberry juice box.”

But the Nightcrawler actor said that wasn’t nearly the worst costume he had to parade in.

“The ultimate one he did, was I was a house one year.”

And, 33-year-old Jack added that all he ever wanted to be on Halloween was a superhero.  Tonight’s your chance, Jack!
