Maggie Gyllenhaal has said America is partly to blame for the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. The 'Secretary' actress made the claim when speaking about her new film 'The Great New Wonderful', in which she plays a New Yorker struggling to come to terms with the attacks on the World Trade Centre. The 27-year-old, who lives in New York, praised the movie for its portrayal of the complex and sensitive issues. She said: "The movie deals with 9/11 in such a subtle, open way. "It allows it to be more complicated than just, 'Oh look at these poor New Yorkers' and how hard it was. "America is responsible in some way and the delicacy it's dealt with allows that to sort of creep in." Earlier this year, Gyllenhaal said shooting nude scenes for the movie 'Shall Not Want' had put her off sex scenes for life and vowed never to do another one.

She said: "I'm never going to do another love scene again. I don't like it. I'm acting like I'm so strong about it, but I'm really not."
