Gyllenhaal threatens to quit New York

Maggie Gyllenhaal is quitting New York because she has been hounded out of the city by the paparazzi.

The actress, her fiancé Peter Sarsgaard and daughter Ramona, have already abandoned Manhattan for more suburban Brooklyn, in a bid for more privacy.

But the 'Dark Knight' star claims they may have to move further afield to escape intrusion.

Gyllenhaal tells Moviefone: "It's a constant effort. When we moved out of the city, to Brooklyn, that helped a lot. Still, there will be paparazzi, but I just know. I will never take Ramona into SoHo, I will never ever take her into the West Village, because they'll pounce on her. We'll probably ultimately just move to the country.

"Then you come into the city, you know what to expect, there'll be some paparazzi. I'll go to an event, I'll get dressed up, they can take my picture there (and) just have my family life be separate."
