Maggie Gyllenhaal

The 1970s Times Square is far away from the history I want to cover. Still when I heard that Maggie Gyllenhaal was playing a sex worker and pornographer from the period in an HBO show called The Deuce, I had to follow.  I love Maggie – I think she takes up where Hedy LeMarr left off by being both sensual and intelligent in her films and tv series.

I like the fact that Maggie does her homework and understands the importance of letting women have their voices be heard in their history. Maggie also understands that these women may not be impressed with her portrayal and accepts that judgement.

Here she is in a interview with Seth Meyers.
