Jake Gyllenhaal & Matthew McConaughey: THR's Actor Roundtable Issue

Jake Gyllenhaal, Matthew McConaughey, Michael B. Jordan, Josh Brolin, Jared Leto, and Forest Whitaker are featured in the latest The Hollywood Reporter issue highlighting the Uncensored Actor Roundtable.

Here’s what the guys had to share with the mag:

Jake, on his worst audition experience: “I remember auditioning for The Lord of the Rings [the role of Frodo] and going in and not being told that I needed a British accent. I really do remember Peter Jackson saying to me, ‘You know that you have to do this in a British accent?’ We heard back it was literally one of the worst auditions.”

Michael, on lying in the audition room: “They were getting ready to cast Tupac [for a planned biopic], and when I was auditioning, they were like, ‘Can you rap?’ And I was just like, ‘Sure!’”

Matthew, on being a dad: “[Being a father is] a great job. Let me sit in the shadows for a while on my career side.”

Josh, on George W. Bush: I said: ‘I am interested in finding out sociologically why this guy [succeeded]. How did he do it twice? And why does everybody want to have a beer with this guy?’”
