Gyllenhaal's saucy new role
Maggie Gyllenhaal is preparing to set Hollywood buzzing with a racy new role - she's signed on to star in a film about the invention of the vibrator.
The Secretary actress will play the daughter of a doctor in Victorian England, who created the sex toy to treat hysteria, which will be the title of the risque movie.
Gyllenhaal says, "I play a firecracker whose father is a doctor who is in the business of curing hysterical women. He cures them basically by getting them off and that actually happened. I end up having a sort of unexpected love affair with this guy who works for him, and who by mistake invents the vibrator."
The film is slated for a 2011 release.
