Maggie Gyllenhaal & Emma Thompson: 'Good Housekeeping' Cover Girls!

Maggie Gyllenhaal & Emma Thompson: 'Good Housekeeping' Cover Girls!

Maggie Gyllenhaal poses with Nanny McPhee Returns co-star and friend Emma Thompson on the cover of Good Housekeeping‘s August 2010 issue, on newsstands Tuesday, July 13!

Here’s what the ladies had to share:

Maggie, on Emma’s best advice to her: “I had one day on the set when I was overwhelmed. I was a newlywed, I had a 2-year-old…I had quite a long scene with five children and animals, and I remember cracking a little bit. You’re not allowed to fall completely apart when you’re carrying a movie; you’re a professional – but I did one day, just a little bit. Nobody knew but Emma, and she said, ‘Mags, you have got to allow yourself to drop the ball, because nobody can keep all those balls in the air.’”

Emma, on what she likes best about Maggie: “Not being all about how she looks. A lot of very beautiful women can be a pain because all they’re thinking about is how they look. Maggie’s not trammeled with all of that. She’s very beautiful, but there’s nothing spoiled about her.”

    Wow! I can’t believe JJ has these 2 very talented actresses on his website!! Of course them being in the same place as Kate Gosslin isn’t good! JJ maybe you could make a D-listers section for the Kates and Rachels of the world!!

    I love these bits of their interviews

  • anna

    Is Emma being sarcastic with that comment about Maggie’s looks? If Maggie thought about her looks long enough, she would jump off a bridge, face down.

  • anna

    i am ugly

  • Jess

    maggie had multiple nose jobs so she clearly thinks about her looks. too bad she’s still of the most unfortunate looking actresses around. somebody once said that she looks like a sad cartoon turtle.
