Greta Gerwig is having a moment. And it looks like its going to last.
The 29-year old is currently impressing critics with her endearing performance as the eponymous Frances in this years indie-flick-to-know, Frances Ha - while also working on three writing projects and acting in more movies.
Though she hates the fact its so commented on, Greta thinks the future is getting brighter for women in film - and shes certain that the success of herself and contemporaries like Lena Dunham and Tina Fey sets a bright precedent for the stars of tomorrow.
The more its talked about, the less it becomes remarkable. And Im fascinated to see what the [next] generation will become. Girls who are twelve - Im excited to see what you do when youre 30!
Shes the girl to namecheck right now, but Greta is still getting the hang of the circus that surrounds Hollywood success. While shes at ease with shoots, combating red carpet nerves is more of a challenge.
Airbrushing is awesome! Even if you make terrible faces, theyll figure it out. The scary ones are the red carpets because they cant switch out your leg or something!
To nail red carpet dressing, Greta works with stylist, Erin Walsh, who helps her to emulate the looks of her style icons: icons including Anjelica Huston in the seventies, Jane Birkin, and Lauren Hutton.
When I met Erin I met a collaborator: we have the same idea about what makes women stylish.
All Erins looks are Gretas favourites but if she had to pick, it would be the really simple black Balenciaga dress for the New York premiere of Frances Ha. It was the perfect dress.
Gretas star is on the meteoric rise, but she still gets starstruck; notably her first day on set with Woody Allen. Luckily her inner nerdy fan-girl didnt stop her from doing her job.
Theyre real people and theyre doing their lives and it sort of looks like how it is when youre doing it. And maybe they do it better, but its still the same.
But surely even the calmest woman struggles to keep her head when acting alongside notorious lothario Russell Brand?
Hes the most infectious human being! Everyone was in love with him. Hes just one of those people who you want to shine his light on you. And he would just mercilessly make fun of me. I loved it!
The spotlight is on Greta right now watch her shine.
