This week, we've learned Maggie Gyllenhaal is just too damn old.
The 37-year-old actress recently told the Wrap she didn't get an undisclosed part because she was "too old" to be paired as a love interest to a 55-year-old male character. But everyone knows as male actors get older, their female love interests stay the same age; after a certain point, actresses are just no longer believable as an object of affection. Just look at screen legend Lillian Gish, who, in three different films, played Lionel Barrymore's granddaughter, then his daughter, then his wife.
Hasn't she realized she's well past her "last fuckable day"? She should just hop in a boat with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and row through their old lady tears. Actor and genius Russell Crowe has the solution: Stop trying to play the ingénue.
Thankfully, we've compiled visual proof that Maggie Gyllenhaal is, in fact, too damn old to play the love interest to someone 18 years her senior.
