Jake Gyllenhaal brought his sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, as his date for the Golden Globe Awards. Both are nominated for awards, Jake for his role in the film Nightcrawler, and Maggie for her role in the mini-series The Honorable Woman. Jake looked dapper in a simple but stylish tailored suit while Maggie stunned the red carpet with her rose-colored, floor-length satin gown.

In The Honorable Woman, Maggie plays Baroness Nessa Stein, an Anglo-Israeli businesswoman embroiled in a geo-political conflict. Jake on the other hand, is nominated for his role in Nightcrawler as a sociopathic videographer with a can-do attitude who aims to make it in the tabloid business.

“We didn't discuss it at all before it happened,” Maggie said about their nominations. “I have to say, I do think it's pretty cool. It will truly be more fun because he's there.”

“I'm happy to be with my sister,” Jake told Today show host Carson Daly. “In a weird way, I spent my childhood watching her. Looking up to her. It's just wonderful.”

Maggie also sang Jake’s praises for his creepy turn in Nightcrawler. “I'm tired of people saying how creepy he was in it!” she said with a laugh. “I've had about 15 people say to him, ‘You're so creepy in that movie.’ I loved him in Nightcrawler. He was like a creepy clown... I've never seen anything like it before. It's incredible.”

In an interview with The Daily Mail, Maggie opened up about her personal life and her relationships. She revealed that one of her prized possessions is her wedding vows with husband Peter Sarsgaard. “When we got married in 2009, my husband and I wrote our own individual vows and after the wedding my husband dived into a swimming pool with the vows in his pocket. But I managed to retrieve them, dry them out and frame them. They now hang next to our bed.”
