Maggie Gyllenhaal, 37, was told she was “too old” to play a 55-year-old’s love interest

Gyllenhaal told The Wrap earlier this week that she was recently turned down for a role because she was seen as “too old” to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man. Gyllenhaal is 37. “It was astonishing to me. It made me feel bad, and then it made me feel angry, and then it made me laugh,” Gyllenhaal says.

By this same logic, Gyllenhaal is “too old” to play a romantic lead opposite James Spader, who is 55; never mind that the two already played lovers in the 2002 John-Hughes-by-way-of-Irving-Klaw romance Secretary. And are you really going to take away the one movie the “50 Shades Of Grey is bullshit” crowd has left?

theme thursday: OOAK vintage treasures

mid-century scandinavian storage desk by chouettefabrique

this 1960s storage desk ‘seduces you with its vintage form,’ according to chouettefabrique … i couldn’t agree more. the retro look and scandinavian design marry with bright blue paint and a happy triangle pattern for a piece of furniture that’s begging to live in your office. love the one of a kind upgrades!!
