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.”

Gyllenhaal proved delightfully open with the audience at Tuesday’s ceremony, where the assembled included George Clooney, his Up in the Air costar Vera Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Morgan Freeman and Woody Harrelson.

“I’m not the most objective audience for the movie, because my parents, who have been married for thirty years are getting divorced,” Gyllenhaal told everyone.

And though there were plenty of parallels between her family’s situation and the movie, Gyllenhaal did joke about one major difference: “I don’t think [my parents are] sleeping together anymore.”

JAKE Gyllenhaal has to be himself around his sister Maggie — because she always knows when he’s being fake!

The Brokeback Mountain actor says his older sibling knows him inside out.

“If you have a real relationship with someone in real life they will call you out on it if you are being fake,” he dished. “I have worked with my sister in movies before and I can’t pull anything with her.

“She knows when I’m faking and when I’m not. She has caught me out before — in real life too. That is all my sister does! That is her primary job in my life.”

Jake Gyllenhaal can’t help but be competitive with his sister Maggie.

The ‘Brothers’ actor insists there is always rivalry in the movie industry but says he is used to it because of the nature of his relationship with his actress sibling, who at 32 is three years older than him.

He said: “The idea of competition, particularly in a creative atmosphere, is always there. And if you don’t acknowledge that, you are doing yourself and the process a disservice. That’s what brothers and sisters and family are like.

“For instance, my sister had a couple of years before I turned up, but I have been with her since the beginning of my life, so there is always going to be a great bond and always a little competition.”

The 29-year-old hunk has recently starred in drama war film ‘Brothers’, which tells the story of how two siblings fall in love with the same woman.

Jake and his 34-year-old co-star Tobey Maguire had a lot of “fun” working on the movie together because they were determined to ensure their on-screen relationship appeared realistic and competitive.

He explained: “What made it fun working on ‘Brothers’ with Tobey, who is my contemporary, was the acknowledgement of admiration and the acknowledgement of competition.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal is not just a lauded actress and an enthusiastic Brooklynite, she is also something of an expert on how indie movies get sold and marketed, as the Bagger discovered over a recent lunch (at a family-run restaurant in Brooklyn, of course). In Ms. Gyllenhaal’s latest, “Crazy Heart,” the directorial debut of Scott Cooper, an actor, she plays the love interest of Jeff Bridges’s alcoholic country singer; it also stars Robert Duvall as his old friend and features music by T-Bone Burnett. Yet it very nearly fell to the straight-to-DVD ranks before being scooped up and thrust into the Oscar race late in the year. Now Mr. Bridges is being touted as the best actor front-runner, and, in the year of the 10, the film itself is a dark horse for best picture. (But don’t expect the movie’s good fortune to be reflected in the fortunes of its couple. “Jeff always makes this joke,” Ms. Gyllenhaal said, “like, oh they’re going to get together in the sequel, and it’s going to be called ‘Crazy Liver.’ ”) Here is Part 2 of our conversation; Part 1, now updated with more answers, is here.


Did you follow the ins and outs of how the movie was released?


Mmm. I mean, I’ve done independent movies where I was like a constant part of getting it to distribution, you know, like ‘Sherrybaby,’ I had to go and get dressed up and have dinner with all the distributors, and get the money to begin with. And then go to the festivals, and wine and dine everybody, and chat everybody up, and do my job.

In this case, it wasn’t on my shoulders in that way. But still, of course, I loved the movie so much I followed everything that happened with it. In a way, it’s like a perfect picture of the financial climate of the movie industry.

We made it with a distribution deal, with Paramount Vantage. And now nobody would make a $7 million independent without a distributor. Nobody, you can’t sell it. Nobody is ever gonna buy that. At that time, you could have made a $2 million movie without a distributor. I know a lot about this actually, because I have made a lot of these tiny movies and cared a lot about how they get sold. But we made it thinking we had a distributor, but then Vantage fell apart, and then Paramount, big Paramount, it’s not a big Paramount movie, and they were great and let it go. And we didn’t take it to Cannes. Instead, after Cannes, when nobody bought anything at Cannes, they had a bunch of screenings, and Jeff Berg, who’s Scott’s agent, a fancy I.C.M. producer, kind of helmed it. It was a little bit of a scramble for a moment, because we were in that moment when nobody was buying anything.

When I started making movies, like when I made ‘Secretary,’ you could totally go and make a movie for $2 million with a good cast and a good script, and it would get bought, and you could count on it having some kind of a life. And that is completely not true now. At all. It’s just dead, because the whole financial structure for funding independent films has fallen apart.

So we got caught in this kind of moment where everything has been crumbling, and then thank God for Fox Searchlight, they have been incredible. I have to say, I watched the cut of the movie before they came in, and you know, it was very good, but it felt like an independent movie. It felt like, there were places that were too long, places that didn’t totally gel. They basically, according to Scott, they didn’t say, ‘O.K., we’re going to buy the movie and get rid of the director and do our own thing,’ they just gave him more time and money to finish editing the movie. And he did a beautiful job, and the cut is so much better.

And the way that, I mean, they’ve worked us, like Jeff and Scott, and even T-Bone and Duvall, and I have been at like a thousand Q. and A.’s for the past little while, but I think they know if actors love their movie, they’ll go. I went to the Angelika and just randomly did a Q. and A. after the first Friday night screening, and that helps get people into the first weekend. You know, when you’re working on a movie you’re not that crazy about, you might not do that. Peter [Sarsgaard] was joking with me, my husband, like, are they going to have you with a big sign, standing on Broadway, handing out fliers, trying to get people to go see ‘Crazy Heart?’ Because you would, wouldn’t you.
