What are some of your favorite things to wear in the summer?
"Last summer, I just had a baby, so I was wearing a bunch of long flowing dresses the whole time. I bought a bunch of them, and I think I'll probably wear then again this summer. It's really good to have more flow-y, airy things."
Summer's great for having a shorter mane, but do you ever look at girls with longer hair and get envious?
"I do, yeah. Right after I cut my hair — I liked it, but I thought, 'Oh no! Wait, hold on. What about the long, long-hair thing?' But you know what? Whatever. I never ever once, after my first daughter was born, let my hair grow long. I'm always cutting it or doing something new to it."
What music are you really getting into right now?
"I like the new Nick Cave album [ Push The Sky Away] — which I really only started listening to because my husband was listening to it. It's not something I would have sought out, but it's really good. I'm also curious to hear Jim James' solo album [Regions of Light and Sound of God]."
Now, let's pause the Q&A. At this point in the interview, we had planned to ask Maggie about her favorite brunch spots in BK (because she would totally have great recommendations, right?), but a couple of nearby reporters jumped in. Hmph.
Another reporter, having missed the first questions, asked her again about her hair, and Maggie re-answered:
“Serge Normant cuts it. I originally cut it into, like, a bowl-cut for a movie where I played a really wild, super out there musician, and it was right for the movie. When I got home, I had to figure out what to do with it. So I asked Serge to cut it all off. I love it. While I have this fantasy of having mermaid long hair, I wasn't even close to having that when I cut it in the first place."
