Jake Gyllenhall auditioned for Lord of the Rings and FAILED miserably

As an actor, we reckon you probably have to learn to take a lot of rejection in your lifetime. 

However, the numerous audition fails of Jake Gyllenhaal seem to be particularly harsh. 

While he has landed some amazing roles in his career, the 35-year-old has revealed some of his biggest movie rejections to date. 

And as you can imagine, the stories are pretty gas. 

He may have lost out to Tobey Maguire for Spiderman as well as Christian Bale for the Batman films, but his biggest audition fail came in the form of his audition for the monumental fantasy franchise, the Lord of the Rings. 

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actor revealed that everyone was really excited about the movie but his audition did not quite go according to plan. 

In fact, he was personally told by Peter Jackson that he was the worst actor in the world.
