Maggie halted shooting to breastfeed

Los Angeles, June 22 (IANS) Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal says she often interrupted the shooting of "White House Down" to breastfeed her baby daughter, Gloria.

The 35-year-old's daughter Gloria was only two-months old when Maggie started work on the action movie with Channing Tatum. So, she was forced to halt filming whenever her baby was hungry, reports

Gyllenhaal told chat show host Chelsea Lately: "When I first started 'White House Down', Gloria was about two-months old. And they knew they were hiring someone who was nursing. And they said to me, 'That's fine. If you need to go feed her, you go feed her'."

But the halts were not to everyone's liking.

"The first A.D. (assistant director) was not a father and he was sort of this gruff guy and sometimes he didn't want to stop," she added.

Gyllenhaal also has a six-year-old daughter Ramona with husband Peter Sarsgaard.
