Maggie Gyllenhaal finds fulfillment in making “sacrifices” for husband
HollywoodNews.com: Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal has revealed that she finds “so much pleasure” in making sacrifices for her husband.
The ‘Donnie Darko’ star, 32, is married to actor Peter Sarsgaard, 39, and the pair have a three-year-old daughter, Ramona, together.
In an interview with Good Housekeeping magazine, Gyllenhaal admitted that she has a “classical” outlook on her marriage with Sarsgaard.
And she credits her Nanny McPhee co-star Emma Thompson with giving her the idea. Gyllenhaal told the magazine: “Emma, you kind of gave me the idea that a part of my life, a part of my mind, has to be devoted to my husband. My mother’s generation has been bucking against that. But I’ve just been finding so much pleasure in sacrificing sometimes for my husband – going to where he’s working and tidying up his trailer because he couldn’t manage to do it, and bringing him things that will make him feel better, and being a wife in a more classical way.”
She added: “It feels really right to me.”
