Gyllenhaal Stands Up To Movie Directors
Hollywood actress Maggie Gyllenhaal doesn't care how big the film is, she'll speak up if her character seems false or "boring".
The SECRETARY star recently auditioned for a "big movie", but as she experimented with the role, the director was unimpressed.
The outspoken 27-year-old explains, "I said, 'Look, neither of us is going to have a good time on this if we don't understand each other, so let's be really totally honest: I don't want to do it in this boring way. Are you interested in doing it in this other way?' And he was like: 'No.'"
Director Tony Kushner, who worked with the ballsy actress on the play HOMEBODY/KABUL, adds, "An actor like Maggie has a deep aversion to anything false. She's not intimidated by me or anyone."14/02/2005 21:42
