Maggie Gyllenhaal in Woman & Home

Maggie Gyllenhaal looks lovely on the cover of Woman & Home magazine. Inside, Gyllenhaal opened up about being a mom, an actress and a woman.

She told the magazine, “I feel like I’ve entered a new era in my life, and it’s very liberating. As you grow up, your life changes and so does the way you think. I’ve come to the point in my life where I’m doing things differently. I’m enjoying having a new perspective and steering my life in a different direction to what I’d previously had in mind.”

She also spoke about the roles she chooses. “I feel more comfortable with the idea of being seductive and powerful in the roles I want to play. I have a tremendous love for difficult material but those choices can be limiting and often you don’t get to work as much as you’d like to. After I had Ramona, I suddenly felt a maternal impulse to be a good working mom too.”

The 35-year-old continued, “I’ve grown into womanhood – I don’t feel a need to be different anymore. I don’t see myself as being limited to smaller, independent films. I chose a lot of those roles in the past because I was drawn to playing extreme or eccentric women, but you can also achieve a lot with very ordinary characters, and tat’s the beauty of what you can do as an actress.”
