Maggie Gyllenhaal - Maggie Gyllenhaal Lends Friends Sex Toys

Maggie Gyllenhaal lends her friends her vibrators.

The actress is currently starring in new movie 'Hysteria' - which is set in the Victorian era and is about the invention of the sex toy - and she was bombarded with the pleasurable devices during shooting and so now gives the unwanted ones to her pals to enjoy.

She said: "By the time I finished the movie I'd been sent maybe 15 vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores. It was a pleasant surprise.

"So I have this incredible collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they'll take them for six months at a time."

Maggie says she was drawn to 'Hysteria' because she was keen to see how the vibrator was invented as well as being interested in "female sexuality".

Speaking at a press conference, she said: "I decided to do it because I was also interested in female sexuality, although that makes it so scientific. I don't know many people who aren't interested in female sexuality.

"I was curious about the invention of the vibrator. It's unusual when you read a romantic comedy where you're curious about what's going to happen. Basically I'm always looking for freedom, for a way to be free in my work."
