Did You Know?

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:

In February 2014, it was announced that she would star, produce and occasionally write in the planned spin-off to How I Met Your Mother (2005). This created an outburst in the "blogosphere", as several fans and writers claimed that Gerwig was failing her indie roots. One writer compared the rage among fans to be "like when Nirvana signed to Geffen Records". See more »
