Jack Black’s mom and dad were satellite engineers. And as if the fact that they were rocket scientists doesn’t sound impressive enough, his mother even worked on the Hubble telescope!
Thomas Jacob Black, who is better known by his stage name Jack Black, was born and raised in Santa Monica, California, US. He was born 45 years ago in the family of Judith Cohen and Thomas Black. Mr. and Mrs. Black raised their son as a Jew and even though they divorced when he was 10 years old, they still remained close to him during his childhood and teenage years.
Several years ago Jack Black revealed that both of his parents were rocket scientists. They worked as satellite engineers and his mom, Judith, was not only an author, but she also got the chance to work on the Hubble Space telescope!
Black also shared that during his upbringing he used to be a troubled and reckless child, especially in his teenage years. He lived with his father and attended several private schools, where he discovered his passion for drama and music. Regardless of his wild childhood, his parents always remained supportive of him and every single one of his artistic endeavors. The 45 year old actor also shared that even though his parents’ divorce and his troubled teen years have made him to some pretty poor decisions in life, he believes he’s a good parent to his two sons Sam and Thomas. He claims he’s a bit strict, although he has never ever read any parenting material or researched any aiding topics.
During his interview the actor, who is also a singer and a record producer, claimed that he loves being married and being a father, although he gets exhausted by it sometimes.
