    Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Nanny tears

    Maggie Gyllenhaal burst into tears “five or six times” while reading the script for ‘Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang’.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal cried while reading the ‘Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang’ script.

    The 32-year-old actress – who plays the role of harassed mother Mrs. Green in the kids’ movie – was drawn to the script because she believes in making good films for children, but her own three-year-old daughter Ramona was too young to see the film.

    Speaking at the world premiere of the movie at the Odeon cinema in London’s Leicester Square last night (24.03.10), Maggie told BANG Showbiz: “I do believe it’s important to make movies for kids that are great. My daughter is a little young for this film, but she loves movies and I see how much they sort of soak it all in their little brains.

    “But really for me I just wanted to play the part and I wanted to act with Emma. And I cried five or six times while reading the script.”

    The star also relished the opportunity to work with British star Emma Thompson, who plays the titular nanny character in the film.

    She said: “I think that Emma is a real grown up and I think there are very few people I can say that about. And I hope that one day I can be a real grown up. It’s not that she’s perfect. She’s just really, really committed.”

    Despite Maggie being nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in ‘Crazy Heart’ this year, she has no upcoming projects in the pipeline.
