Gordon Gerwig (a computer programmer and financial consultant) is her father and Christine Gerwig (nee Sauer) is her mother (a nurse). Greta has a younger brother. She has Irish, English and German ancestry.
Greta Gerwig was raised as Unitarian Universalist but also studied at all-girls Catholic School. Greta nicknamed herself as “intense child.” Greta has an early interest in dance, which is the reason she intended to obtain a degree in musical theatre in New York. She graduated from Barnard College, where she majored Philosophy and English, instead.
She began performing at a young age. And through her association with the mumblecore film organization, Greta quickly came to fame. She has worked together with directors Noah Baumbach and Joe Swanberg on many projects. ‘Mistress America’ in 2015, ‘Frances Ha’ in 2012, and ‘Greenberg’ in 2010 are some of her notable work with Baumbach.
For her flair as one of Hollywood’s stunning actresses of her time, Greta was given an award for the role played in the Athena Film Festival in 2011. For Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Gerwig also received a nomination in the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.
She guest-starred in an episode of ‘The Mindy Project’ in 2016. Later in that same year, Greta starred in 20th Century Women, directed by Pablo Larraín, Mike Mills, and Jackie. In 2017, Gerwig would make her solo directorial debut with ‘Lady Bird’, which she also wrote. The film stars Laurie Metcalf, Saoirse Ronan, John Karna and Tracy Letts. Since late 2011, she has been in a relationship with writer-director Noah Baumbach.
