Maggie Gyllenhaal was drunk the first time she met Jeff Bridges.
The actress – who has been nominated for an Oscar for her role in ‘Crazy Heart’ alongside the actor – admitted she was not in the best state when she met him.
She said: “I met him at the premiere for ‘Mona Lisa Smile’ where I was, like, a baby.
“I went up to him, I’d had a few glasses of champagne, and felt, ‘This is my premiere, I can talk to whoever I want.’
“He told me, ‘We’re going to work together one day.’ And it made my entire week but then it happened. And I’m glad it was many years later when I had a better sense of myself as an artist.”
The 32-year-old star also revealed she saw similarities in herself and ‘Crazy Heart’ character Jean Craddock – a mother.
She revealed to Stylist magazine: “Jean is really going through a similar thing to me, where she needs to be herself again and not just a mum.
“I think that’s a line every mother walks – balancing what you need and what you have to sacrifice for your kids.”
