Why is Maggie Gyllenhaal Borrowing Her Mom's Car?
The actress, 36, stars in Sundance TV's new miniseries, The Honorable Woman
Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in Sundance TV’s new miniseries, The Honorable Woman, but the 36-year-old actress says she still finds time to learn harmonies with her husband, actor Peter Sarsgaard, and loves to hear her two-year-old daughter say “I love you,” when she chatted with PEOPLE this week…
Last time I sang out loud
I’m not a great singer, but I’m okay. My husband [actor Peter Sarsgaard, 43] plays guitar and we’ve been learning these bluegrass harmonies together. It’s been one of the most fun things I’ve been doing lately.
Hmmm, I don’t know. It’s ridiculous that I don’t know how to change a car tire. I think I’m going to repierce my ears when my daughter [Ramona, 7] gets hers done. But that is not DIY.
Last thing I borrowed
At the moment we’re borrowing my mom’s 10-year-old Prius, which my husband is psyched about because he is very committed to environmentalism. He really wants to get a totally electric car, but we’re waiting for a different model. Well, he is. I’m doing what he says.
Last time I was nervous
Just recently I was stuck on the subway for 40 minutes during rush hour, and they turned the air-conditioning off. I was sitting next to this woman and I just started talking to her because I was irrationally nervous.
