Things just keep getting worse for her.

Say it ain't so!
On Wednesday, Maggie Gyllenhaal revealed in an interview that she recently lost a role because she was told she was too old! What the what?!
The 37-year-old shared:
"There are things that are really disappointing about being an actress in Hollywood that surprise me all the time.
I'm 37 and I was told recently I was too old to play the lover of a man who was 55. It was astonishing to me. It made me feel bad, and then it made me feel angry, and then it made me laugh."
Though the Oscar nominee was able to laugh it off — we think we're still angry!!
The Parks and Recreation star quipped:
"Patricia Arquette is here, so wonderful. So, so wonderful in the film Boyhood. Boyhood proves there are still great roles for women over 40, as long as you get hired when you're under 40."
Gyllenhaal decided to take the high road and chose not to reveal the specific project.
Nonetheless, the brunette beauty is getting quite a bit of Emmy buzz for her role in the mini-series, The Honourable Woman.
"A lot of actresses are doing incredible work right now, playing real women, complicated women. I don't feel despairing at all. And I'm more looking with hope for something fascinating."
Rock on, sister!
We wonder what brother, Jake Gyllenhall has to think about his sister's struggles?!
We can only imagine he's pissed.
Maggie, keep doing you girl. We foresee many more roles (and awards) in your future!

A lot of stars shined at the Met Gala, but others just missed the mark.
Sorry, ladies, but it's true.
Jennifer Connelly donned a lace Louis Vuitton sheath dress on this year's red carpet.
While we appreciate the effort, that leg-of-mutton sleeve made the ensemble look far too big for her tiny frame. And as if that wasn't enough, her hands were practically swallowed up in that dress.
The Blood Diamond actress ended up looking like a little girl trying on mommy's clothes.
And poor Maggie!
She tried in that floor-length Roland Mouret number, we just aren't exactly sure what it was she was trying for.
From the different-sized straps, to the world's weirdest waist accent, we have no other word's to describe Maggie's red carpet outfit than a
But Jake Gyllenhaal's big sis did succeed at something: reminding us why wearing black and brown together was a fashion faux pas to begin with!

Maggie even got sexier than she had in a long time with her curve-hugging white Thakoon dress that revealed cleavage and leg!
Such an improvement over last time!
Rosamund was looking more demurely sexy in a textured Dior dress with a high-low hem that showed off her shapely calves, but it was her tousled bob and red lip that really made her stand out!

The Golden Globes may be over, but we have the entire winner's list right here for your viewing pleasure!
Did your favorite celebrity take home the gold?!
To find out…
Ch-ch-check out the complete winners list from the 2015 Golden Globes (below)!!
More like The Honoured Woman!
Her work in SundanceTV's The Honourable Woman beat out a lot of lauded ladies, including Jessica Lange in American Horror Story: Freak Show, Frances McDormand in Olive Kitteridge, Frances O'Connor in The Missing, and Allison Tolman in Fargo!
Maggie, we think we've got something to say to you:
Watch her acceptance speech (above)!
Jake had the easy part of looking handsome in a traditional tuxedo, which has never been an issue for him!
Maggie chose a simple mauve Miu Miu column dress that could've used an extra steaming.
It was definitely more worst than best, unfortunately!
And though her face looked great with minimal makeup, her bangs were really weird. Right?
They had like a random peak at the center! Thoughts???

Well it's a clear choice for us!
One lady's a hot hit, and the other misses the mark. Can you guess who???
While we love SJP's chic Preen blue and neon palm ensemble, paired with stunning metallic pumps and an assortment of bracelets…
Maggie's baggy plain jane Stella McCartney frock does nothing for our fashion senses! Her hair and makeup is lovely though — pink and fresh faced!
Perhaps a pop of color could've amped up the basic look!
P.S. Interested in the shoes? SJP is strutting in — you guessed it, SJP! And lil' miss Maggie is strolling around in Acne.
