Peter Sarsgaard was at Sundance while his wife, Maggie Gyllenhaal, was at the SAG Awards.
And although she lost in the “Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Television Movie Or Mini-Series” category her husband could not be more proud of her.
Frances McDormand took home the award for Olive Kitteridge but Maggie’s performance as, Nessa Stein, in The Honorable Woman was some of her best ever work, Peter tells RumorFix.
He says, “Well, I see less of her because she is out there getting awards and we wish we were together — but I’m so proud of her.
“You know a lot of the time actors are nominated for the work a couple of years after the work that they did that was great.
“But what is great for Maggie is that the work she does in The Honorable Woman is some of the best acting that she has done and it is nice to get rewarded for something that took all of you and I know how hard she worked on it.”
Peter is at the Sundance Film Festival to premiere his new movie Experimenter alongside Kellan Lutz and Winona Ryder.
The controversial film tells the story of famed social psychologist, Stanley Milgram, who in 1961 conducted a series of radical behavior experiments that tested ordinary humans willingness to obey authority.
And Peter readily admits that it is a real smoke and mirrors kind of experience for the audience.
He revealed, “It is like a box of mirrors — I am an actor portraying Stanley Milgrim being critical of an actor in the movie playing Stanley Miligrim.
“It is not your standard fair – the movie has an elephant in it and I even sing!” he adds.
Sounds like a movie worth watching.
