In an interview with the New York Times, the director said she believed that perhaps the British actor assumed that his ideas would not be “valued.”
“Olivia really didn’t like talking a lot,” he explained. “I wonder, really, if it’s because it was relatively recent that she gained power as an actress, if it feels similar to how I feel as an actress, which is very rare that someone values my ideas.
“They’ll say yes, but people get irritated at actresses with a lot of ideas. I’m not an idiot so I’m keeping them to myself. I remember asking Olivia if she likes to rehearse and she said, ‘Actually, no,’ and I totally identify with that. “
Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut may have gotten into action this year, but the actress and philanthropist knew she was destined to be a director, after playing a fictional porn director on HBO. The Deuce.
“I just didn’t feel entitled to admit it to myself,” she said. Well-informed person. “So weird that I think I was playing Candy in The devil, playing a porn director on TV when I said, ‘This is really me. And I think it’s true, I think it’s a better job for me. “
