Maggie Gyllenhaal is planning on making a bit of a career switch. The actress is going to star in a New York play – The Village Bike by Penelope Skinner.
“I’m a massive fan of Maggie’s work. I’ve tried not to get too excited but it really is too exciting,” Skinner told The Independent.
Gyllenhaal is following in her brother Jake’s footsteps. In 2009 he starred in Nick Payne’s play If There Is I Haven’t Found it Yet.
In the meantime she is promoting her film, White House Down. This week she attended the New York premiere of the film in a Christian Dior crocheted dress. While the dress is getting mixed reviews online, I think it’s amazing. It’s unique and very flattering on Gyllenhaal.
