Peter Sarsgaard Was Rejected by College Sweetheart

Peter Sarsgaard Recalls Rejection by His Childhood Sweetheart

Peter Sarsgaard, star of the upcoming Green Lantern, is happily married to actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, but as the actor explained to Conan, love didn't always come easily to him. Last night, Peter told his tale of heartbreak. Back in his college days, he discovered on Valentine's Day that his childhood sweetheart had left him for a North Carolina Tar Heel basketball player. As he recounts each precise detail about the demise of his first love, it becomes obvious that this experience left a mark on him. Fortunately, he was able to get over the initial rejection by going to a Tears for Fears concert.
