Maggie Gyllenhaal In Marie Claire

Maggie Gyllenhaal, once known as the queen of quirky indie movies, is now facing blockbuster-size fame in her new film, The Dark Knight. And with this kind of fame, comes the fashion police, critics and self-doubt. Maggie opens up about her coping skills in the tough world of Tinseltown and her challenges as a mother to 21 month-old Ramona.

On being a target for the fashion police: “Oh, my God, all the time.” After she wore a sweeping purple Peter Som gown to the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute event last May, her outfit appeared on a “worst dressed” list, accompanied by various put-downs from the media. “I thought I looked great. Sometimes it freaks me out. I’ve been so hurt and felt so bad. People will always say mean things about you if you put yourself out there.” Her Dark Knight co-star, Aaron Eckhart, said, “Maggie’s got a lot of sass. She has very strong opinions on acting and things outside moviemaking. She’s not afraid to speak her mind.”

On preparing for the role of motherhood: “I’ve spent all my time learning how to be a mother and make a home with a child,” she says, adding that when Ramona was a newborn, “I didn’t know what I was doing. It’s so hard and requires so much work and careful thought. You just get stronger and stronger.”

On the kind of example she wants to set for Ramona: “For me it’s about getting to know my own mind,” she says of seeing a shrink on a regular basis. “It makes it easier to grow, and to grow up. I’m always thinking about what I want to take from my mother and what I don’t.”

Maggie goes on to describe the close-knit household she grew up in California with politically active parents (her father, Stephen, is a director; her mother, Naomi Foner, a screenwriter). “They were not celebrities.” She grew up knowing that a woman’s power does not come from her outer beauty, “I always felt there was something dishonest about dyeing your hair to make it more beautiful,” Gyllenhaal says — although she admits being over that now.

Provincial Daily Breaks Brangelina Twins Story

The world of entertainment was tripping over themselves on Saturday to get the first reports of the arrival of the Brangelina ‘wonder twins.’ In the end, the official word came from a provincial French newspaper,

“It was Brad Pitt who chose to give the scoop to Nice-Matin,” said assistant editor-in-chief Olivier Biscaye. “He said to the doctor that the local media should be the first informed about the birth.”

There were reports that twin girls had been born on Saturday, and the television program, Entertainment Tonight, reported the twins had been born at the end of May. However, Nice-Matin broke the celebrity story of the year when it published news of the births on its website at 2 a.m. Sunday, four hours before the print version hit the newsstands,

“We knew we would be the first in the world,” said Christophe Caietti, editor of the Nice-Matin magazine section, which spotlighted the twin’s birth on Monday. “Nice-Matin has always chosen not to play the game of paparazzi towards the celebrities who have chosen to live in the region. We respect them, and they do likewise. We let them have a peaceful life. This why I think Brad and Angelina have chosen to make this gift to Nice-Matin,” Caietti said.

On Monday, the paper featured a picture taken by its own photographer of Brad Pitt posing alongside Dr. Sussmann, Mayor Christian Estrosi and the Lenval hospital director, Bernard Lecat,

“Everyone wants that picture. It is not for sale. It would be very expensive, maybe not a million dollars, but very expensive. It is the only picture from the day,” Caietti said. “But we won’t sell it, out of respect for the family.”
