London: Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal is so passionate about healthy food that she works in an organic food store in her leisure.

The 35-year-old actress currently serves as shop assistant and spends her spare time working with her spouse Peter Sarsgaard in a co-operative supermarket near their home, reported Contactmusic.

"We work at this place, it`s a co-op and if you work there you get cheap groceries. I don`t do it because you get cheap groceries, I do it because they have incredible food and incredible produce. You cannot just pay to be a member, you have to work there," she said.

"My husband works a lot of my shifts for me because he`s really serious about it, but I do the odd shift. It`s three hours and 45 minutes once a month, which seems like nothing, but for professional New Yorkers it`s hard to figure out," she added.

She prefers to be less conspicuous while working.

"I`ve worked in the office but I have a new shift now, down in the basement where you put the apricots in the little bags. You get in trouble really easy there. They have a lot of rules and I`ve missed shifts, but I try. I try. I`ve worked in the office before and people call up and lie!," she said.
