Los Angeles: "The Dark Knight" star Maggie Gyllenhaal has admitted she often gets tempted to read stories about herself.
She hopes to find some compliments, but only ends up feeling worse, reports contactmusic.com.
"I try not to but sometimes I fall into the black hole. That's probably the truth. I try not to read anything but sometimes I just get pulled in. It's always when I'm looking for love and that's not where love comes from," she told Stylist magazine.
The 36-year-old actress takes to the social networking site Twitter to set the record straight after feeling misunderstood in interviews and takes pride in it.
"I like Twitter because I sometimes feel very misunderstood by the press. You give an interview and someone will write something and you think, 'What? How did they take this away from what we spoke about?' So Twitter is the way to put things straight," she explained.
