Gyllenhaal In Awe Of Thompson
MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL is so in awe of actress EMMA THOMPSON, she's been taking tips off her while filming NANNY MCPHEE AND THE BIG BANG.
The Dark Knight star is currently in London shooting scenes for the sequel to 2005's Nanny MCPhee, alongside Thompson who co-wrote and stars in the new picture.
The British actress has given Gyllenhaal some acting tips and she's impressed with Thompson's wise words.
Gyllenhaal says, "Early on, Emma gave me a couple of notes. And she's not directing me, she's acting with me! If some other actor started giving me notes I would tell them to 'F**k off' - there is not one other actor I would allow that from.
"But they were fantastic notes - clear and totally helpful. I just thought to myself, 'She's teaching me and I'd be an idiot not to accept it.' And Emma's what, 50? It would be silly of me not to acknowledge that she knows more than I do."
