Los Angeles, Sep 2 (IANS) Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal is “really proud” of her sex scenes and is happy to shoot “almost anything”, so long as she gets final veto.
The “Deuce” actress, who has two daughters — Ramona, 12, and Gloria, seven — with husband Peter Sarsgaard, has no problems stripping off before the camera so long as she is given the “final cut” of what is shown, although asks hardly ever asks directors for changes.
“I am 41 and I’ve spent nearly 20 years doing sex scenes, intimate ones and unusual ones. I’ve always been really proud of that work,” Gyllenhaal told “Sunday Times Style” magazine, reports “femalefirst.co.uk”.
She added: “I’m happy to shoot almost anything. I’m happy to show a lot of my body, but I want to have the final cut of what ultimately gets shown. And I never in my entire career, except once, asked to have something taken out.”
For her role in “The Deuce”, which follows the lives of sex workers in the 1970s, Maggie worked with the wardrobe department to create a barrier from a yoga mat which was “cut into a shape like a giant matchstick” and a pillowcase in order to feel more comfortable during the more intimate scenes.
She said: “It’s not so much the nudity that bothers me, it’s actually creating a real boundary between me and the actor. They give you things to wear, but they weren’t enough, so we created this thing!”
