Jake Gyllenhaal Is an 'Incredible Uncle' to Maggie's Girls

Originally posted 09/21/2012 01:30PM



While Jake Gyllenhaal has no children of his own just yet, he says being a doting uncle to his sister Maggie's two daughters, Ramona, 6 and Gloria Ray, born in April, has helped him to better "navigate the world of sibling stuff."

Watching the young girls discover their sibling relationships, Gyllenhaal, 31, says, shines a light on the competitiveness he experienced growing up with older sister Maggie, 34, who wed actor Peter Sarsgaard in 2009, the actor tells Anderson Cooper in an interview Friday.

Gyllenhaal, who is currently starring in the police drama End of Watch, confided to Anderson Cooper in a segment of his talk show, Anderson Live, that he and Maggie are hard on each other. But they're also supportive, he says, especially when it comes to talking about their work as actors.

He calls the nieces "extraordinary," and "the best thing that happened to my family probably ever," noting he loves his new role and is trying hard to be the best uncle possible.

"[During filming], you had everyone come in your trailer and you had vodka and I wasn't used to that, but I had an almost 2-year-old and I was up for it. And I remember in the end it dwindled down [to a few people] and you put your arm around Scott [Cooper, the director] and said, 'This is our leader, man, this is our leader.' And I wasn't sure, but I went with you because you said that and you said that with all your heart … And I know something about his heart, and he deserves every award that you guys could come up with to give him."

As the younger brother, Jake Gyllenhaal might not get to impart too much wisdom to big sister Maggie Gyllenhaal. But when she earned her first Academy Award nomination this month – well, that's a road he's been down before.

His main advice for Oscar season? Have fun with it.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Likens It's Complicated to Her Parents' Divorce

Originally posted 01/15/2010 01:35PM

While she may not appear in It's Complicated, Maggie Gyllenhaal felt a special personal connection to the romantic marital comedy – because of her own parents' recent divorce after 30 years of marriage, the actress told a private, star-studded gathering Tuesday.

Gyllenhaal said she laughed and cried throughout the movie, which stars Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin as a couple trying to sort out their relationship after their legal split. "I'm kind of in the thick of all that, and it's nice to laugh about it a little," said Gyllenhaal, who presented the It's Complicated stars with the best ensemble cast award at the National Board of Review Awards, at Cipriani's 42nd Street in Manhattan.

Gyllenhaal, 32, also said that she and her mom, 63-year-old screenwriter Naomi Foner, who on Christmas Eve split from director Stephen Gyllenhaal, recently dished about men over a bottle of wine, "which we never would have done before she got divorced. She told me about the sexy Zen Buddist Ping-Pong-playing married carpenter who had been hitting on her."
