Maggie Gyllenhaal is opening up about family life.
The 41-year-old The Deuce actress attended a conversation with LensCrafters moderated by The Cut‘s Beauty Editor-at-Large Jake Larkworthy on Wednesday (July 31) to discuss motherhood, wellness, and glasses and eye exams for the family.
During the chat, she revealed nearsightedness runs in the Gyllenhaal family, including mother Naomi and brother Jake.
“They had a real bond over this, like, really intense nearsightedness. And every year they would, you know, go to the doctor and they would choose frames. And so when I was 14, I was like, in on it with them,” she explained.
She also discussed parenting with Peter Sarsgaard: “Neither of us are good at math. My husband thinks that he’s better at it than me and I resent that. I do. I’m not even kidding. I mean, he isn’t. Neither of us are good at it…my husband is really the music guy. He believes that learning to read music and learning to play music is just as important as learning anything else you learn in school. I can read music like a kindergartner. I don’t have the discipline. And he really does. And he has taught both of my daughters how to play instruments.”
