Maggie Gyllenhaal Brings Her Brain, Body And Heart To The Porn World Of ‘The Deuce’ – The Contenders Emmys Video

The Deuce

The HBO series The Deuce is a period piece set just as the porn-movie industry started to thrive. When star Maggie Gyllenhaal came to Deadline’s fourth annual The Contenders Emmys recently, she told the packed audiences of TV Academy members and guild voters that the goal of the show and her character was not to say that porn was bad — even if it does sometimes brutalize and objectify women.

The Contenders EmmysGyllenhaal also told the Paramount Theater crowd about how her character Candy, a porn star who now is starting to direct, sees the artistic possibilities of it all. She says they ask the question, “How far can it go? Let’s push it as far as it can go” — which is exactly what is happening in The Deuce’s second season and now heading into a third.

The series star and producer also has a unique answer when I ask what drives her to jump into a project like this, what makes her want to do it.

Check out our conversation in the video above.
