Maggie Gyllenhaal flat out refuses to pick up a tabloid magazine, even if she and her family are on the cover! The actress, who recently welcomed her second daughter, explains why she avoids paparazzi photos at all costs.
“I do not go near them,” Maggie Gyllenhaal told the Huffington Post, referring to published paparazzi photos. “I don’t know if they do it to me or if they don’t, because when I used to even peek a little bit I found it so brutal, and so unkind. Sometimes someone will send me something or say ‘Oh, I saw a picture of you and Ramona on the street.’ And I always write back and say I just don’t want to know.”
Of life with the shutterbugs scuttling about the mother of Ramona and newborn Gloria Ray went on to say:
“It’s funny because I feel this way about almost nothing else. Everything else in my life I think ‘I want all the information.’ I want to know as much as I can know,” she adds. “In this case, if someone followed my 5-year-old to kindergarten and I didn’t know, I would rather just not know. I get so confused by all of that.”
