Maggie Gyllenhaal would jump at the chance to work with her husband Peter Sarsgaard again because their co-starring roles in off-Broadway’s Uncle Vanya revved up their love life.
The couple, which wed in Italy in May (09), performed together in the Chekhov play earlier this year (09).
And Gyllenhaal insists mixing her home life with work strengthened their bond because they were so turned on by each other’s work ethic.
The Dark Knight actress explains, “I could see how it would be awful for some people. For us it was like bliss. It was sexy and I felt like doing a Chekhov play, there are going to be times when you struggle, there are going to be times when you get things wrong, when you’re flailing, and I felt like he respected me every minute.
