‘I lend my friends sex toys’: Maggie Gyllenhaal inundated with vibrators after signing up to film about history of the device
From the Daily Mail: Girls usually share make-up and DVDs (um, actually we don’t share make-up, not very hygenic). So it may come as a surprise to hear Maggie Gyllenhaal gives her friends a thrill by loaning them vibrators. The Dark Knight actress tapped into her generous streak after being inundated with free sex toys after signing up to new project Hysteria.
Maggie said: “By the time I finished the movie I’d been sent 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 one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they’ll take them for six months at a time.”
The 33-year-old star, sister of Donnie Darko actor Jake Gyllenhaal, said she was enticed by the project to discover more about ‘female sexuality’. She added: “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.” Maggie is no stranger to exploring erotic themes on camera, having put her stamp on Hollywood with her role in Secretary. In the film, she embarks on a BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadomasochism) relationship and was forced to crawl on all fours while carrying out menial tasks – in what has now become an iconic image.
There’s just a little too much information from this woman here. But I guess they’ll say anything to promote a movie.
