Maggie Gyllenhaal Puts Kids On Hold

Maggie Gyllenhaal puts more kids on hold due to her current roleNew mother Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s new movie has put her off having more children.

The Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang actress, who plays a struggling mother in the 2010 comedy, found working with five young co-stars and animals exhausting.

“I’m playing a mom at her wits end—tripping over things, with things falling on my head. That kind of physical comedy is exhausting. Especially working with five kids and sometimes animals.”

The 31-year-old beauty, who has two-year-old daughter Ramona with her husband Peter Sarsgaard, loves being a mother, but admits that it is very different from how she expected.

She told British Marie Claire: “Before my daughter was born, I was all, ‘I’m only going to feed her organic food, I’m only going to give her cloth diapers…’ And then, once you have a real child who is starving on a plane, you give them a bag of potato chips because that’s all there is, and they’re OK and it’s fine.”
