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!

    he can be a pilot even if he’s into acting just like what tom cruise and angelina jolie did.

    Any notice his weird mouth? He only moves like half his mouth, almost like he went to the dentist and the novicaine didn’t wear off.

    That’s not novocaine. He was born with dead nerves in his lower lip, so that’s why the bottom lip is a bit droopy. And for the record, I would love to practice kissing that cute little bottom lip of his. :)

    Ah, his mouth thing is a birth defect. I think he has little feeling in his lower mouth or something.

    I don’t know what to think of the celebrities that say they would have been doctors, pilots, or whatnot if they weren’t acting. Granted some of them are extremely intelligent and have gone off to Ivy League schools but its just as hard if not harder to become a doctor. Its not just some silly whim.
