Undemanding Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal can't make big demands on movies.

The 'Crazy Heart' actress, who has been nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in the movie, claims she does not command the same respect as some other actors do.

Maggie - who is engaged to actor Peter Sarsgaard - said: "If we were Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, we could say, 'Oh yes, I'll make that movie, but it must be in New York and it must be filmed before mid-summer break,' but we're not.

"If Martin Scorsese calls and tells me I need to be in Nova Scotia for six months, then I probably need to do that."

The 32-year-old star isn't keen for her three-year-old daughter Ramona to grow up in the spotlight, and hopes Ramona's life will be similar to her own upbringing with her director father Stephen Gyllenhaal and screenwriter mother Naomi Foner.

Maggie - whose brother is 'Brothers' star Jake Gyllenhaal - told website HeraldSun.com.au: "I don't think it was as intense as the life my daughter is leading, in the sense that my parents weren't well-known. Yes, they made small movies, but we didn't lead a big, glitzy, fancy life.

"I think my daughter's life will be more like that, although I'm trying to keep it as laid-back and calm as possible for her."
