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.”

    If you don’t want blah, you should check her cover on the tatler (uk edition). disturbing is the only way to describe it.

    nyc Says:

    wow she’s not naked for once in a magazine or movie. Her trying to be humble and nice is so fake. Her saying America deserves 9-11 and America did it is so unforgivable.

    Jake is prettier,talented and more nicer than her.

    Love her acting and intelligence. Whoever styled this cover, though, needs a different job. Terrible dress and hairstyle. The dress looks like something from a Simplicity pattern book from the 50′s – horrible.

    delia Says:

    Love interest for Bale’s Batman? what a joke. The dress looks like a drape from the funeral home and she was almost killed in this movie when her dress caught her but she didnt roll but just screamed.

    Her face looks like death.

    delia Says:

    meant when her dress caught fire. Maggie’s acting is not good. Getting naked and doing a guy rough on the bigscreen does not mean
    riveting acting. Meryl Streep and Audrey Hepburn,Jolie,Cate Blanchett etc are great acting.

    Looks like jake.

    Allon Says:

    I have NEVER understood her so-called “appeal”.

    Her personality is blah and she looks like an old hag!

    “These poor girls (Michelle Williams and daugther Matilda), it wasn’t their fault. They were out of their element.”

    Jared she’s not talking about Michelle and Matilda there, she’s talking about the girls that camped outside her house. Jeeeez

    24th!!! I’m sorry, I don’t mean to bash her, but she is not at all pretty. Poor Thing always looks tired and in need of an eye lift. I think she needs a new hair do also. I have seen better pictures of her.
