Maggie GyllenhaalMargaret Ruth "Maggie" Gyllenhaal (born November 16, 1977) is an American stage and screen actress.  She is the daughter of director Stephen Gyllenhaal and screenwriter Naomi Foner Gyllenhaal (née Achs) and the older sister of actor Jake Gyllenhaal.  She made her screen debut when she began to appear in her father's films.  Gyllenhaal later achieved recognition in a supporting role in the indie cult hit Donnie Darko (2001).  She made her break-through role in the 2002 sadomasochistic comedy Secretary, for which she received critical acclaim and a Golden Globe nomination.

Gyllenhaal has appeared in an eclectic range of films, including the indie film Sherrybaby (2006), for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe, the romantic comedy Trust the Man (2006) and big-budget films such as World Trade Center (2006) and The Dark Knight (2008).  She next starred in the 2009 musical-drama Crazy Heart, for which she received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress nomination.  Gyllenhaal has also appeared in theatrical plays, including Closer (2000) and television productions including Strip Search (2004).

Gyllenhaal has been in a relationship with actor Peter Sarsgaard since 2002.  In 2006, the two became engaged and Gyllenhaal gave birth to their daughter, Ramona, on October 3, 2006.  On May 2, 2009, she married Sarsgaard in Italy.  She is a politically active Democrat and, like her brother and parents, supports the American Civil Liberties Union.  Prior to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq she participated in anti-war demonstrations.  Gyllenhaal drew criticism in 2005 for her opinion that America was "responsible in some way" for the 9/11 attacks.  She is actively involved in human rights, civil liberty, and anti-poverty campaigns.

Gyllenhaal was born in New York City to film director Stephen Gyllenhaal and film producer and screenwriter Naomi Foner Gyllenhaal (née Achs).  Jake Gyllenhaal, her younger brother, is also an actor.  Her father was raised in the Swedenborgian religion and is of the Swedish noble Gyllenhaal family; her last purely Swedish ancestor was her great-great-grandfather, Leonard Gyllenhaal, a leading Swedenborgian who supported the printing and spreading of Swedenborg's writings.  Her mother is from a Jewish family in New York City and is the ex-wife of Eric Foner, a history professor at Columbia University.  Her parents, who married in 1977, filed for divorce in October 2008.
