For some reason, many people seem to think that Maggie Gyllenhaal is married to Jake Gyllenhaal. In fact, she’s his older sister. They also have a half-brother named Luke from their father’s second marriage.

One of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, Jake Gyllenhaal told Howard Stern in July 2015 that he’d like to get married.

“There are a lot of beautiful women and there are opportunities,” he acknowledged, “but… I believe in monogamy. I believe in, when you meet somebody who’s right, it’ll be right and you’ll stay there.”

“I think I probably got scared,” he admitted. “But I also think at some point, I think you just decide to grow up.”

During his visit to Stern’s Sirius XM radio show, the “Southpaw” star added that he looks to the relationship his sister, Maggie, has with her husband, actor Peter Sarsgaard, as a model.

“They’re definitely a standard for me… based on their kids and how great they are with their kids,” he said.

Final red carpet results are beautiful, yes, but what really goes into perfecting those looks? Few people actually see the chaos that goes on behind the scenes between celebrities and their stylists.

However, if we’re lucky? We might hear rumors and stories — which is the case with Maggie Gyllenhaal, who in September 2015 had to do a last-minute shoe switch for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Maggie’s stylist, Erin Walsh, uploaded a photo of what looked like a pair of custom-made Charlotte Olympia heels sitting on top of the actress’ Emmy dress.

Erin captioned the photo, “Final touches…” and posted it less than two hours before Maggie hit the red carpet.

However, Maggie later emerged on the red carpet in an entirely different shoe —  specifically, a pair of suede platforms by Miu Miu released in 2011.

We’re not sure what happened behind the scenes but in the video, Maggie gave out a little sigh before she posed for the cameras.

Nevertheless, Maggie looked stunning in her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta dress and jewelry from Leighton.
