      Maggie Gyllenhaal looks like an older version of Emma Chamberlain.

        I'm so glad she brought up the movie secretary! 😅
        I thought they were going to cut out talking about the film for... Reasons.

                      Secretary remains one of my favorite films because of Maggie.

                            I love the pause after she said; "Heath". I'm not even sure she noticed it. We lost someone so great when we lost him. We still feel the ache of his loss. :(

                              Secretary is when i found her and fell in love with her as an actress. I learned about her as a person after and i just loved her and Jake since I have a little brother too. Older sisters to baby brothers are just different kind of women. :)

                              I admire her - she's so incredibly smart and talented. :) and just beautiful!

                                      Years ago I wondered how such a plain Jane actress landed big paying roles.
                                      But now we have Daisy Ridley, Ruby Rose, whatever that thing is in an upcoming Terminator film. So I'm wondering is Maggie a post-op male trans as well?

                                        Her performance in The Honourable Woman is one of the best things that I've seen in my whole life.

                                              I love how she embodies effortless upper-class white privelege - no struggle, just breezing into her first role and then the next, being on the same page as directors and being called for parts.

                                                Judging by your comment, you would've done the exact same in her position and you know it. Otherwise you just wouldn't care.
                                                Save your negative emotions for those who pretend to be on your side while secretly mocking you, those who are "ohhh, sooo relatable" but it's all an act to earn your admiration and MONEY, or those who pretend they worked soooo hard but in reality slept their way to the top or simply used their connections in *private*
                                                She is a good actress and a decent person, your anger is misplaced. She never hid anything.

                                                She kind of reminds me of Annette Bening now. Similar look maybe.

                                                  watching this makes me feel like "Secretary" was a precursor to "50 Shades of Grey"

                                                            Every time I've seen her on film she's gotten better and better. Now I look forward to anything she does.

                                                            She helped make The Honorable Woman one of my favorite recent shows and her character Candy is the main reason I watch The Deuce.
