Risk-taking on the screen, the new look of Michael Fassbender and crisis tears in yoga: Maggie Gyllenhaal confides in The EDIT, the online magazine of NET-A-PORTER.COM 

"I dare many more things on the screen than in life," says Maggie, star of the cult movie The Secretary and older sister of Jake Gyllenhaal. In her latest project, The Honourable Woman, she played a Jewish British billionaire heiress who had sex with strangers in the stairwell on the second episode. This is something she has never done in real - not yet, at least. "I find it really fun to pretend and imagine what it would be. But not the watered down version of Victoria's Secret - the version without filter, also bold and unrestrained as if you were with your lover or husband. But obviously, this is cinema. There are too many issues in real life. The difference is subtle, but very real. "

Her second project this year is Frank, a black humor comedy on a experimental rock band tour in Ireland and in which Michael Fassbender, her co-star, is wearing a papier-mâché mask throughout the film. "I told him he had never been so beautiful," she says. From a young age, Maggie and Jack appear in movies from their parents, director Stephen Gyllenhaal and screenwriter Naomi Foner's, both Oscar nominees. A source of inspiration, Maggie explains that by repeating that she could be the best in what she wanted, her mother has caused her many disappointments. "The strategy of my mother was not necessarily the best, she says, smiling. When I was little, I remember a few failed auditions for musicals without understanding why ... You should know what you are truly capable, it's important, right? "

This is a thing that does not want to do with her ​​daughters, as Maggie knows her better. "When I had my oldest daughter, I remember telling a friend: 'I'm not perfect!" - Nobody is - and she retorted: 'But you think not to be away. It made me think! "Maggie and her husband, actor Peter Sarsgaard, are members of a cooperative and did not hide:" People laugh when I say that. Even I'd hate it. In fact, I've even been excluded once for not having done the required hours of work. But it is important to Peter and he does not care what others think. It must be said that there is the best in all of New York to a third of the price and I love to cook - what more? "

Very down to earth, Maggie was also given to yoga, after finding it "really cheesy and annoying." Moreover, recently, she was so moved by the words of his yoga teacher she burst into tears. "I feel that with age, my sense of irony does not fulfil any function anymore. What seemed corny before is no longer for me today. "" Aging also has good sides - experience, being able to lower his guard and open to things. Fight against wrinkles or want your 20 years chest, it no longer makes sense. "Very wise!
