Personal Quote:

[on her screenplay for Frances Ha (2012)] So much of writing is like baking a cake. I can't tell you where the sugar is. See more »

Trivia:

Her real-life parents, Gordon Gerwig and Christine Gerwig, portrayed the parents to her character in Frances Ha (2012). Her father declared that he was reluctant to do it, even though he doesn't have any lines, as he believed the role should be given to a professional actor. See more »
