Maggie Gyllenhaal Says 'The Kindergarten Teacher's Tight Budget Involved Getting 'Totally Naked On A Ferry'

Maggie Gyllenhaal keeps it chic and casual while attending the Screen Talk: Maggie Gyllenhaal panel in support of her Netflix film The Kindergarten Teacher during the 2018 BFI London Film Festival on Friday (October 19) in London, England.

The 40-year-old actress told the audience that the film, by writer-director Sara Colangelo, was harder to fund as it was written, produced and led by women.

“We never thought we would have enough money, and we didn’t,” Maggie expressed. “We all got paid nothing and deferred our salaries because we go, ‘I’m grateful to even be able to make it,’ and, ‘We’ll make it work because we are a group of women and that’s how we do it.’”

“I changed my clothes in the bathroom on the Staten Island Ferry. It was maybe my most un-filmstar-like moment,” Maggie added. “One should never be totally naked on a ferry.”

FYI: Maggie is wearing a Frame tee.
