Greta Gerwig

Biography

Greta Gerwig was recently nominated for the Breakthrough Actor category in the 2010 Gotham Awards, in addition to Best Female Lead in the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards for her role as Florence Marr in Noah Baumbach's Greenberg, opposite Ben Stiller. Famed New York Times film critic A.O. Scott said "Ms. Gerwig, most likely without intending to be anything of the kind, may well be the definitive screen actress of her generation."

She made her mark in the indie and festival film markets starring in films such as Hanna Takes The Stairs, and Nights And Weekends, which she also co-wrote and co-directed with Joe Swanberg. The film premiered at South by Southwest Film Festival and was the first major sale in the festival's history.

Greta Gerwig most recently starred as 'Naomi' in the Warner Brothers remake of Arthur with Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Russell Brand and Nick Nolte. Before that she starred alongside Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher and Kevin Kline in Ivan Reitman's No Strings Attached for Paramount Pictures. She can currently be seen playing the lead role of 'Violet' in Whit Stillman's new comedy Damsels In Distress, released by Sony Pictures Classics. She recently shot Fox Searchlight's Lola Versus in which she plays the role of Lola.
This summer Gerwig will be a part of the ensemble cast of HBO's new series The Corrections based on the Jonathan Franzen novel of the same title. Her other credits include lead roles in Mary Bronstein's Yeast, the Duplass Brothers' Baghead, and The House Of The Devil. A Magna Cum Laude graduate of Barnard College, Columbia University, Gerwig makes her home in New York.
