Her breakout role came a bit later, when she took on the daring, sexy title role in Secretary (2002).

(2002), and Mona Lisa Smile (2003), among other movies.
Gyllenhaal received her second Golden Globe nomination for playing a recent prison parolee in Sherrybaby (2006). She followed that up with roles in World Trade Center (2006) and Stranger Than Fiction (2006), and then replaced Katie Holmes in the role of Rachel Dawes in The Dark Knight (2008).
In 2009, Gyllenhaal received great acclaim for her role opposite Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart (2009), which earned the actress her first Oscar nomination. Since then, Gyllenhaal has been seen in Nanny McPhee Returns (2010), Hysteria (2011) and Won't Back Down (2012).
Gyllenhaal has two children with husband Peter Sarsgaard, whom she married in 2009.
