Jack Black's Birthday Ban

Subscribe to Jack Black alerts

Jack Black has been banned from performing on his birthday.

The 'Year One' actor had hoped to celebrate turning 40 by playing a huge concert with his rock band Tenacious D - supporting Pearl Jam in San Francisco - but he has been banned by producers on his latest film 'Gulliver's Travels'.

He revealed: "I thought that'd be a good way to turn 40 - in front of a huge rock and roll audience. It would have been fantastic.

"But the filmmakers wouldn't let me because they said I might still be shooting. I said, 'Come on, please. I'm a star, let me off for one day.' But they said, 'No, we pay you and you have to work on your birthday.' "

Jack thinks he has now come up with the perfect revenge plan after being denied his dream.

He quipped: "I'm going to be bad in the movie on purpose that day. That'll teach them!"
