Maggie Gyllenhaal almost turned down a starring role in the new Batman film The Dark Knight – because she thought the movie would be too mainstream.
The actress is best known for choosing roles in independent, low-budget movies – but was convinced to take on the role after meeting director Christopher Nolan.
“Initially I thought that if it doesn’t seem like I can do a good job and have a good time, I don’t want to do it,” she says. “I don’t want to just do some little movie because it looks interesting, I have to think strategically. It’s to do with Peter (Sarsgaard – her partner) and making sure our family comes first.”
