Milo Ventimiglia Wanted to be a Fighter Pilot

Milo Ventimiglia Wanted to be a Fighter Pilot

Before Milo Ventimiglia was playing the power-absorbing Peter Petrelli in Heroes or even acting for that matter, he had some other life aspirations.

“I had a couple options,” Milo, 30, shared on Live with Regis and Kelly! “One, I wanted to be an actor. Two, I wanted to be a doctor. And third, I wanted to be a fighter pilot.”

But even though Milo went on to become an actor, he still took to the skies: “During the strike, when Hollywood was shut down, [I went up in a fighter plane]. And I also spent some time with the Air Force Reserves. It was amazing. It was one of the coolest things I’d ever done to see what these pilots put themselves through, the training, what the planes are capable of.”

When co-host Kelly Ripa asked if he felt nauseous up in the fighter plane, Milo laughed, “Yeah, I got sick. It’s hard not to. There’s actually a photograph of me before I got into the plane–hair’s polished, I’m looking good, I’m standing up tall. And then there’s one of me after I finished the flight and eh, a little crooked.”

And good news! Milo had a little tidbit to share about Heroes: “We’re going into [filming] our third season starting May 1. Back with new episodes in September!”

Hoorah!!! Watch Milo‘s interview on Regis below. Milo‘s latest film, Pathology, opens in theaters this Friday!
