Maggie Gyllenhaal Calls Out Writer for What He Wrote About Her Speaking Voice

Maggie Gyllenhaal is publicly calling out the writer of her interview with The Independent.

The Deuce actress took to Twitter moments ago on Thursday (March 7) to write, “To writer @PatrickHJSmith Of course you’re free to think anything you like about the “silliness” of my voice and my face. But when you open your piece in @independent commenting on that, it serves to undermine everything we spoke about.”

The opening lines of the piece are as follows: “Talking to Maggie Gyllenhaal can be a little disorienting. She has a high-pitched, cartoonish voice, which she uses to express deep things. One critic memorably said that she possessed a ‘Kewpie-doll silliness’, but maybe it’s a flaw in our culture that we expect serious thoughts to be couched in sonorous tones. ‘We live in a masculine world,’ she says, ‘and in America – especially very recently – as much as we would like to believe otherwise, it’s a misogynistic world.’”

You can read the entire piece right here. She speaks about topics including misogyny, a past audition that has stuck with her, gender inequality in the industry, and more.

    And that Patrick Smith is right about her voice. She’s got a baby voice and when she uses that stupid baby voice to soapbox us to death about misogyny and how hard rich women have it in the best country on earth, I just want to laugh in her stupid, kewpie doll face.
