Maggie Gyllenhaal has revealed that she sometimes feels “hurt” by criticism she receives in the press.
The Batman actress admitted that she does not always respond well when magazines place her on ‘worst dressed’ lists, for example.
“Sometimes it freaks me out. I’ve been so hurt and felt so bad,” Gyllenhaal told Marie Claire magazine. “People will always say mean things about you if you put yourself out there.”
The star also confirmed that she has adapted well to motherhood after a shaky start. Maggie and her fiancé Peter Sarsgaard welcomed the arrival of their first child Ramona in October 2006.
“I’ve spent all my time learning how to be a mother and make a home with a child,” she said. “When Ramona [was first born], I didn’t know what I was doing.”
