Maggie Gyllenhaal Covers 'Woman & Home' January 2013

Maggie Gyllenhaal strikes a pose as she graces the cover Woman & Home magazine’s January 2013 issue, on stands now.

Here’s what the 34-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her life: “I feel like I’ve entered a new era in my life, and it’s very liberating. As you grow up, your life changes and so does the way you think. I’ve come to the point in my life where I’m doing things differently. I’m enjoying having a new perspective and steering my life in a different direction.”

On the roles she chooses: “I feel more comfortable with the idea of being seductive and powerful in the roles I want to play. I have a tremendous love for difficult material but those choices can be limiting and often you don’t get to work as much as you’d like to. After I had Ramona, I suddenly felt a maternal impulse to be a good working mom too.”

On womanhood: “I’ve grown into womanhood – I don’t feel a need to be different anymore. I don’t see myself as being limited to smaller, independent films. I chose a lot of those roles in the past because I was drawn to playing extreme or eccentric women, but you can also achieve a lot with very ordinary characters, and that’s the beauty of what you can do as an actress.”
