The Dark Knight's love interest, Maggie Gyllenhaal, is featured on the cover of the August 2008 issue of Marie Claire magazine. The accompanying photoshoot has an old-world glamour, with the set looking like 'an ornate parlor, full of antiques and feathers'.

Maggie looks less Dark Knight and more stunning in a Peter Som and a Christian Cota dress, but she confesses that she was hurt after appearing on worst dressed sites.

"I thought I looked great," she says of her sweeping purple Peter Som gown that she wore to the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute gala last May, "Sometimes it freaks me out. I've been so hurt and felt so bad."

“I'm not the youngest person at the table anymore. I'm not the young precocious one." Maggie says of turning 30, "I feel like I'm engaging with people in a different way now. I am a woman. I'm treated with respect, as an equal.”
