Maggie Gyllenhaal - "Marie Claire" August 2008

Maggie Gyllenhaal -

Maggie Gyllenhaal (in Peter Som) dishes to Marie Claire in their August 2008 issue, on newsstands nationwide July 15.

The 30-year-old Dark Knight actress opens up about the highs – and surprising lows – of blockbuster-size fame and being a mom. Maggie also shares how she keeps her edge, her adjustment to motherhood, and dealing with the heart-wrenching death of neighbor, friend and costar Heath Ledger.

On her younger brother Jake Gyllenhaal: “We lived with him in Los Angeles when [my fiance Peter Sarsgaard] and Jake were making Rendition. Jake has a beautiful house, much nicer than a hotel. He’s great with kids – it comes naturally to him. He really has that touch.”

On the death of Heath Ledger: “We live pretty close to them. [But] it was disgusting. I had journalists call me on my cell phone. There were these two shy girls sent from some rag magazine to camp in front of my house. I came home with [my daughter] Ramona and I was so shocked and angry. These poor girls (Michelle Williams and daugther Matilda), it wasn’t their fault. They were out of their element.”

On turning the big 3-0: “I’m not the youngest person at the table anymore. I’m not the young precocious one. I feel like I’m engaging with people in a different way now. I am a woman. I’m treated with respect, as an equal.”
