Maggie Gyllenhaal Biography

Maggie Gyllenhaal is one of the great young actresses of today. She gained critical acclaim and an Oscar nomination for "Best Supporting Actress" for her portrayal of Jean Craddock in Crazy Heart alongside Jeff Bridges, further exemplifying her talent and versatility as an actress. After receiving rave reviews out of the 2002 Sundance competition for her starring role opposite James Spader in Lion√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs Gate√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs Secretary, she went on to receive a Golden Globe nomination for √Ę‚ā¨ŇďBest Actress in a Comedy or Musical√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě, an Independent Spirit Award nomination for √Ę‚ā¨ŇďBest Actress√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě, a Chicago Film Critics√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘ Award for √Ę‚ā¨ŇďMost Promising Performer√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě, A Boston Film Critics√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘ Award for √Ę‚ā¨ŇďBest Actress√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě, a National Board of Review Award for √Ę‚ā¨ŇďBreakthrough Performance√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě and an IFP/ Gotham √Ę‚ā¨ŇďBreakthrough Performance√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě Award. Maggie made her feature film debut in 1992, alongside Jeremy Irons and Ethan Hawke in Waterland. This was followed by a memorable performance as √Ę‚ā¨ŇďRaven√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě, the Satan-worshipping make-up artist in John Waters√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘ quirky Hollywood satire, Cecil B. Demented, which led her to a co-starring role in Donnie Darko, a fantasy-thriller about disturbed adolescence. Years later, back at Sundance in 2007, Maggie starred in Sherrybaby; she played a female convict struggling to overcome her drug addiction and regain custody of her daughter. The film was well-received by critics and garnered her second Golden Globe nomination, this time for Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama. Gyllenhaal was also nominated for a 2006 Independent Spirit Award for her role in Don Roos√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘ Happy Endings, opposite Lisa Kudrow and Tom Arnold.

She also starred in Marc Forster√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs Stranger Than Fiction with Will Ferrell, Dustin Hoffman, Queen Latifah and Emma Thompson. In the past few years, she appeared in John Sayles√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘ Casa De Los Babys with Daryl Hannah and Lily Taylor and Mike Newell√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs much-anticipated Mona Lisa Smile in which Maggie co-starred with Julia Roberts, Julia Stiles and Kirsten Dunst. She was also seen in Criminal with Diego Luna and John C. Reilly as well as Spike Jonze√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs Adaptation. Also accomplished on stage, Gyllenhaal starred as √Ę‚ā¨ŇďAlice√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě in Patrick Mauber√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs award-winning Closer at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles for director Robert Egan, and previously at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. She has also appeared in Anthony and Cleopatra at the Vanborough Theatre in London. In 2004, Maggie starred in Tony Kushner√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs play Homebody/Kabul, which ran in both Los Angeles and at B.A.M. In August 2010, Maggie was seen in Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang with Emma Thompson. In 2011, Maggie appeared in the Anton Chekhov play √Ę‚ā¨ňúThree Sisters√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘ alongside Peter Sarsgaard, Jessica Hecht and Josh Hamilton and also starred alongside Hugh Dancy in the romantic comedy, Hysteria. In 2012, Maggie starred in the drama, Won√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘt Back Down alongside Viola Davis and directed by Daniel Barnz.
