Maggie Gyllenhaal works in organic food shop

Jul 27 2013, 3:46am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Maggie Gyllenhaal works in an organic food store as a shop assistant in her spare time.

The 'Dark Knight' actress and her husband Peter Sarsgaard are so passionate about eating healthy food that they lend their spare time to a co-operative supermarket near their home in New York City, where all the employees are volunteers and receive heavy discounts on their groceries.

She explained: "We work at this place, it's a co-op and if you work there you get cheap groceries. I don't do it because you get cheap groceries, I do it because they have incredible food and incredible produce. You cannot just pay to be a member, you have to work there.

"My husband works a lot of my shifts for me because he's really serious about it, but I do the odd shift. It's three hours and 45 minutes once a month, which seems like nothing, but for professional New Yorkers it's hard to figure out."

The 35-year-old star - whose brother is actor Jake Gyllenhaal - prefers to remain inconspicuous while working at the supermarket and has recently transitioned from floor staff to a job in the basement.

She told Empire magazine: "I've worked in the office but I have a new shift now, down in the basement where you put the apricots in the little bags. You get in trouble really easy there. They have a lot of rules and I've missed shifts, but I try. I try.

"I've worked in the office before and people call up and lie!"

Love is complicated. But that's not how it's usually portrayed in popular culture. Either you find your true love and all is hearts and flowers, or you lose him or her and are lost to despair. Long-term relationships are more complex than that, of course. There are small daily compromises, built-up petty grievances and the occasional outright betrayal, as well as warm, shared memories and unexpected joys. Marriages are not rom-coms. They are marathons. D ...
