Actress, Maggie Gyllenhaal, has revealed that Maggie is not her real name!
Maggie, who is the sister of Hollywood hottie, Jake Gyllenhaal, had located her birth cert before her marriage in 2009 and was shocked to find out her real name is Margalit and not Maggie, or even Margaret!
The actress said: “Maggie’s on everything! Maggie’s on my driver’s licence, my passport, everything!”
However, her mother has insisted that Margalit was not the name she gave to her daughter after her birth.
While she says she likes the name Margalit, it isn’t something she associated with herself: “I actually really love that, but it’s not my name.”
Sounds as if we all better double check those birth certificates!
