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.

Maggie Gyllenhaal's 40th Birthday Was Very Significant to Her

Maggie Gyllenhaal walks the red carpet at the European premiere of Netflix’s The Kindergarten Teacher during the 2018 BFI London Film Festival on Thursday (October 18) in London, England.

The 40-year-old actress was joined by the film’s writer and director Sara Colangelo. You can stream the movie now on Netflix!

Maggie recently opened up to the Los Angeles Times about the significance of her 40th birthday, which was last November.

“I took it really seriously,” she said. “I feel like it was an amazing thing to turn 40. I made it a marking of really growing up. I see women who are older than me who are alive, who are really living, and accept their age and experience. I have so much admiration for the way they’ve digested it all.”

FYI: Maggie is wearing a Dior dress.

Lena Dunham Names Her Least Favorite Taylor Swift Ex

Lena Dunham and Maggie Gyllenhaal make an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! on Wednesday evening (October 10) in New York City.

During the show, Lena played “Plead the Fifth,” where celebs are asked three juicy questions and can choose to not answer one. However, Lena ended up answering all three questions and not abstaining from any!

First, Lena was asked who she thinks is the biggest misogynist in Hollywood, to which she responded “Daniel Tosh.”

She then was asked about the drama that went down between her and her Girls co-star Christopher Abbott.

Finally, the juiciest question came from Lena‘s Girls co-star Andrew Rannells. He asked which of Taylor Swift‘s exes is her least favorite (if you don’t know, Taylor and Lena are pals.)

Before answering the question, it was noted by Andy Cohen that Lena was sitting next to Maggie, who is the sister of one of Taylor‘s exes, Jake Gyllenhaal.

“I want to do right by her on this question. My least favorite was Calvin Harris because I felt that he was petty in the public, and who needs to do that?”

Maggie Gyllenhaal's 'The Deuce' Character Inspired Her to Make Directorial Debut!

Maggie Gyllenhaal made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (October 9) and explained that her role as Candy on The Deuce influenced her decision to helm the upcoming screen adaption of Elena Ferrante’s popular novel The Lost Daughter.

“I think I was in some ways inspired by Candy,” the 40-year-old actress revealed. “To be totally honest with you, I’m not proud of this, but I don’t know if I felt entitled to do it before. I’ve always been a lover of movies and I’ve always been a storyteller but I think I kind of thought I had to put it in my acting.”

Maggie went on to explain that she decided to consider filmmaking when she discovered Elena‘s 2006 book. She wrote to the Italian author, who uses a pseudonym, and was pretty surprised when she received the rights to make the movie.

“It blew my mind,” Maggie continued. “I asked her if I could have the rights to write and direct it and then I got scared, which I think is fair enough, and I said to the publishers, ‘Hey, look can I have an out? What if we can’t get the money with me directing it? What if I have to act in it?’ And (the response) came back from her, ‘No, I only want to give you the rights if you direct it.’”
