Gerwig has also had starring roles in the films such as Damsels in Distress (2011), To Rome with Love (2012), Jackie (2016), and 20th Century Women (2016), the latter of which earned her a nomination for the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Early life
A native of Sacramento, California, Greta Gerwig is the daughter of Christine (née Sauer), an OB-GYN nurse, and Gordon Gerwig, who worked for a credit union on small business loans. She has a younger brother, a landscape architect. She has German, Irish, and English ancestry, and was raised as a Unitarian Universalist. She attended St. Francis High School, an all-girls Catholic school in Sacramento. She has described herself as having been “an intense child”. She showed an early interest in dance, and had intended to complete a degree in musical theatre in New York, but ended up graduating from Barnard College with a degree in English and philosophy. Outside of class, she performed in the Columbia Varsity Show alongside Kate McKinnon.

Career
Early career
Greta Gerwig originally intended to become a playwright, but turned to acting when she was not admitted to playwriting MFA programs. In 2006, while still studying at Barnard, she was cast in a minor role in Joe Swanberg’s LOL, and appeared in Baghead by Jay and Mark Duplass. She began a partnership with Swanberg, which resulted in the duo co-writing Hannah Takes the Stairs (2007), and sharing both writing and directing duties on Nights and Weekends (2008). Through these films, she became known as a key figure in of the rising mumblecore film movement, often referred to as an “It girl.” Although she had an association with a number of other mumblecore filmmakers and appeared in several films—among them Ti West’s The House of the Devil—mainstream success remained elusive.

Of this period in her life, Greta Gerwig has said “I was really depressed. I was 25 [in 2008] and thinking, ‘This is supposed to be the best time and I’m miserable’ but it felt like acting was happening for me, and I went back to acting classes”.

Mainstream success
In 2010, Greta Gerwig starred in Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg alongside Ben Stiller, Rhys Ifans, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. In an appraisal of her work in this and other films, the New York Times critic A. O. Scott described Gerwig as an “ambassador of a cinematic style that often seems opposed to the very idea of style.” “She seems to be embarked on a project,” Scott wrote, “however piecemeal and modestly scaled, of redefining just what it is we talk about when we talk about acting.”

Greta Gerwig and Baumbach co-wrote his next film, Frances Ha, which was released in May 2013 after having toured the festival circuit since September 2012. Greta Gerwig played the title role, and received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for her performance.

Her third on-screen collaboration with Baumbach, Mistress America, was released in August 2015 to generally positive reviews. It currently holds an aggregated score of 75 at Metacritic, and has an 82% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.

Gerwig’s next starring role was in Rebecca Miller’s Maggie’s Plan, which premiered as an official selection of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, opening to very positive reviews. The film was also screened at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and the 66th Berlin International Film Festival. That same year, Gerwig starred in 20th Century Women, directed by Mike Mills, and Jackie, directed by Pablo Larraín, earning acclaim for both performances.

In 2017, Greta Gerwig made her solo directorial debut (after having co-directed Nights and Weekends) with the teen drama film Lady Bird, which she also wrote. The film’s cast includes , Tracy Letts, Laurie Metcalf, Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Lois Smith. Lady Bird premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on September 1, 2017, was theatrically released in the United States on November 3, 2017 by A24, and in the United States it has grossed $34 million against its $10 million budget. Upon release, critics praised Gerwig’s screenplay and direction. The film was later chosen by the National Board of Review, the American Film Institute, and Time magazine as one of the top 10 films of 2017. At the 75th Golden Globe Awards, Lady Bird won the awards for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Musical or Comedy (Ronan), and also received nominations for Best Supporting Actress (Metcalf) and Best Screenplay.

Greta Gerwig will next star in director Mia Hansen-Løve’s upcoming film Bergman Island, alongside Mia Wasikowska and John Turturro.

She was later cast as a lead in the HBO pilot The Corrections (2011) and a spin-off of How I Met Your Mother titled How I Met Your Dad (2014), but neither were picked up to series. Gerwig voiced one of the main characters in the Adult Swim animated series China, IL. In 2016, she guest-starred in two episodes of the comedy series The Mindy Project.

Political controversy
In July 2017, Greta Gerwig was among 60 artists who signed an open letter organized by the New-York-based group Adalah-NY that called on Lincoln Center to cancel performances of a play by Israeli author David Grossman staged “with support of the Israel’s Office of Cultural Affairs in North America.” In September 2017 Gerwig apologized, saying signing the letter had been “a mistake. I was unfamiliar with the complexities of the letter and I did not take the time to study them.”
