Maggie Gyllenhaal was decidedly not hysterical about missing the premiere of her new film on Monday. It wasn’t fear of the paparazzi that kept Gyllenhaal away, but rather her decision (a no-brainer!) to stay home with her newborn daughter, Gloria.
Skipping the red carpet scene at the Hotel Chantelle bash, Gyllenhaal opted for pajamas instead of an evening gown. The Shmooze applauds how the actress has set her priorities, but we are, however, sorry that she missed out on the fun at the party for “Hysteria.” Hugh Dancey, her costar in the sexy comedic romp about the invention of the vibrator, surely missed her as he hobnobbed with guests like Patrick Wilson and Mamie Gummer.
But the worst part of it is that Gyllenhaal wasn’t there to get the party favor sponsored by Jimmyjane, the sexual wellbeing product merchandiser (“Live Sexy” is its motto). The Shmooze bets that you can guess what the gift was. Angela Lansbury went home with one — and claimed it was her first ever.
