Speaking to the newspaper, Greta Gerwig said, “At school, I had a ton of energy. Now, as an adult, I have ADHD – they diagnosed me. But as a kid, my mum was like: ‘Let’s sign her up for every activity. Let’s tire her out’. I’ve always had a tremendous amount of enthusiasm. I was just interested in, like, everything. I had a really active imagination. I had a lot of really deep feelings. I was emotional.”

At 39 years old, Greta Gerwig is both an actress and director. She is also a mother to two children with her partner and collaborator, Noah Baumbach. According to Gerwig, her eldest son has inherited her love for “high drama.”

She explained, “Occasionally, he’ll have these moments of high drama. He’ll fall to the floor. He did this the other day. I wasn’t able to make him breakfast instantly because I was feeding my three-month-old, and he fell to the floor, weeping and said: ‘I’m having a sorely trying day. It’s already a problem’. I was like: ‘Oh, such drama’. But also, like: ‘Oh, that’s from me’. That’s my level of grandiose.”

As a couple, Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach co-wrote the film ‘Barbie.’ However, Noah chose not to attend the movie’s premiere in Los Angeles on Sunday (09.07.23).

Instead, he decided to show his support for the ongoing strikes organized by the Writers Guild of America. The strikes stem from a dispute over pay and working conditions with studio executives.

During the glamorous event, Greta took the opportunity to convey a message to Noah and the striking writers. She wrote a note saying, “My co-writer and co-creator, my partner in love and art, Noah Baumbach is not here. He is passionately supporting the fight of the Writers Guild of America. From the first line to the last cut, this movie is his as much as anyone’s. He is a Barbie girl. Nothing in ‘Barbie‘ happened without him, and nothing in Hollywood happens without writers.”
