Decriminalise prostitution: Maggie Gyllenhaal

Monday, November 27, 2017

Actor Maggie Gyllenhaal said prostitution should be legalised so that people involved in the industry could lead a safer and healthier life. The 40-year-old actor plays a sex worker in a new TV show "The Deuce".

"Who needs a union more than a prostitute? I'm quoting David Simon (show creator) actually and I agree with him. My instinct is to say decriminalise it and make sure everybody's safe, healthy and taken care of," Gyllenhaal said.

The actor also serves as a producer on the show, as she wanted to be a part of the "storytelling process". "There was a little part of me that was concerned they weren't interested in telling the same story as I was interested in telling. That's why I asked to become a producer because I wanted to have some guarantee that I would be included in the storytelling process.

"The joke on set was, 'Maggie, what kept you up last night?' There was always one thing that I would write a long email about at night. I would say, 'Here are the tiny things. If you don't do these, fine, but you must do this'," she said.
