Maggie Gyllenhaal cuts a casual figure in black as she lands in Athens with husband Peter Sarsgaard
Maggie Gyllenhaal cut a casual figure Monday when she landed in Athens for the Greek premiere of her Oscar-nominated film The Lost Daughter.
The actress, 44, who directed the drama, was joined by her husband Peter Sarsgaard, 51, as they made their way through the arrivals hall after their long flight.
Maggie, who shares daughters Romana (16) and Gloria (10) with Peter, opted for an all-black ensemble with a simple T-shirt tucked into wide-leg pants.

The Lost Daughter follows a woman named Leda Caruso, played by Olivia Colman, who finds herself obsessed with a younger woman Nina (Dakota Johnson) and her daughter while on summer vacation, recalling her own experience of early motherhood.
The film was nominated for three Oscars for Best Actress (Olivia Colman), Best Supporting Actress (Jessie Buckley), and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Olivia joked last year that she intentionally inserted certain scenes with co-star Paul Mescal into the film so she could flirt with him.
The actress, 47, claimed that after seeing Mescal, 26, in BBC TV series Normal people she created a scene so she could spend time with him on screen.
When asked if she enjoyed working with him, she said: The sun: ‘That’s always nice, but it wasn’t even in the script. I just did that.’
Olivia then went back to what she’d said and clarified that the scene was indeed in the script from the start, before praising her co-actor.
The Oscar-winning actress went on to explain that while she “couldn’t look him in the eye to begin with,” she finds Mescal’s work as an actor and singer “wonderful.”
She said, “I couldn’t look him in the eye when we first met. He’s just so nice and kind and a good person. And he sings beautifully. He’s just sweet.
“He’s the nicest and most beautiful. He loves his family and he is so brilliant at what he does. His work is beautiful.’
