Jake Gyllenhaal has got some major first world problems.
During his appearance on the late night show Conan Thursday night, the 31-year-old Oscar-nominated actor revealed his Swedish last name has become quite a problem, because no one can pronounce it correctly.
“The only two places that that is pronounced correctly – my last name, like you just did just now – is in Sweden and IKEA,” Gyllenhaal joked.
After Conan tried to pronounce his challenging name, Gyllenhaal was amused the late night host actually got it right and took another stab at joking of his Swedish background.
“I really have to say that is actually the pronunciation of my last name,” Gyllenhaal said. “Us Swedes, we are really great people. I mean, I’m half Swedish, you know. … We come with simple instructions, and we seem great. At the end of it, your fingers are sore and you feel awful.”
His film End of Watch was the number one film at the box office this past weekend, raking in $13.2 million.
