Hollywood business is tough, but exciting: Maggie Gyllenhaal

Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal says she is still
not used to the cut-throat nature of competition in Hollywood. The
35-year-old, who is known for her role in Adaptation and
Crazy Heart, still has moments of doubt about her career.
"I think I'm a lot less tough than I kinda act like I am. I do
find the business tough but exciting, and I do enjoy my job. It
gets me down but it also really, really takes me up," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Gyllenhaal as saying. "I like the ride of
going through a project, but all the stuff around it can sometimes
be really exciting, and sometimes not," she said.
Gyllenhaal has two daughters, Ramona, six, and 14-month-old
Gloria with actor-husband Peter Sarsgaard. She said that her eldest
daughter is often confused by her parents' movie careers. "Ramona
and actress Rachel Weisz's son (Henry) was in her kindergarten
class last year. She saw a picture of the witch in Oz the Great
and Powerful, which is Rachel, and she was like, 'I'm scared
by that witch'," she said.
"I was just, 'No, the witch is Henry's mum. And your daddy is
always the scary guy in movies and if a kid saw it, they'd just be
like, 'That's Ramona's daddy'," she added.
