Let's talk about Noah Baumbach, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Greta Gerwig

Let's talk about how Noah left Jennifer while she was pregnant with his child and then schemed with Greta Gerwig to revise history and act as if they got together long after instead of just admitting they'd been fucking the whole time!

Let's talk about Noah's horrible movies too!

OP = Jennifer Jason Leigh

I made it because I've worked with him and someone mentioned him in the oscar thread as a contender and I found it despicable and thought it might be gossip of interest.

Greta Gerwig wasn't even born when Fast Times at Ridgemont High was released.

[R2] Is Noah as awful as I imagine? He seems like a total narcissist control freak and Greta is a cloying cunt. Seems like common knowledge that Greta was fucking Noah right after Jennifer had their baby.

This is second hand, but I heard, probably about twenty years ago, that JJL is very nice and sensitive, but keeps picking men who are total jerks. Picking Baumbach fits the pattern (the guy she was dating at the time was an pompous dick, too).

[R5] Yeah, I definitely get the nice, sensitive vibe from her. Yuck, hope karma hits Baumbach hard.

That movie starring Ben Stiller as the nasty guy who moves to LA was supposedly autobiographical so..........

BTW Greta Gerwig seems like sort of a dim bulb in interviews.

replies 7Dec 6, 2017 10:00 PM +00:00

[R7] I think that's just Greta trying to be endearing. There are a few interviews where she's serious and seems like a completely different person, like her manic pixie stoner girl schtick is a complete schtick

He gives his brother a lot of acting jobs

replies 9Dec 6, 2017 10:06 PM +00:00

I hate him.

The horny acting-out kid brother from Squid and Whale is a prof at Columbia and is reputedly a nice guy and well-liked by his students

I don't think infidelity by consenting adults is a huge priority right now in Hollywood. Even if some of the people involved are dicks.

What's Baumbach like to work with OP? Did you work with Greta too?

replies 14Dec 7, 2017 8:06 PM +00:00

[R11] Owen Kline?

replies 15Dec 7, 2017 8:09 PM +00:00

I can't stand Greta Gerwig as a person, but Lady Bird was pretty good.

replies 16Dec 7, 2017 8:25 PM +00:00

[R16] Do you know her personally?

not the actor Owen Kline, but the character of the Noah's younger brother, who is now a university prof

replies 19Dec 8, 2017 4:19 AM +00:00

I liked Lady Bird. Baumbach's relationship with JLL ended ages ago, time to move on.

replies 20Dec 8, 2017 4:24 AM +00:00

Owen and his sister are surprisingly homely.

replies 21Dec 8, 2017 11:12 AM +00:00

well, certainly not gorgeous, but not grotesque. a stylist for that hair could likely do wonders.
replies 22Dec 8, 2017 12:09 PM +00:00

Greta is so fucking annoying and contrived

replies 23Dec 8, 2017 12:54 PM +00:00

I went to the NY Film Fest premiere of Margot at the Wedding. When the (tedious) movie ended the lights came on and I realized I was sitting right next to Jennifer, and Noah was on the other side of her. I figured that out when they stood up and everybody in the theater applauded them.

Then they did a Q and A and Noah came off like a real Jewish douche.

Which character in Squid and the Whale was based on Noah?

Was it the younger brother who smeared his jizz all over his middle school?
replies 25Dec 8, 2017 1:06 PM +00:00

I know nothing of Baumbach yet the photo at R24 makes me want to beat him with a sledgehammer. A douche face if I ever saw one.

replies 26Dec 8, 2017 1:08 PM +00:00

in S&W. Eisenberg was the older Noah, Kline was the younger brother with the jizz problem

replies 27Dec 8, 2017 1:43 PM +00:00

I never knew “The Squid & The Whale” was autobiographical. Eisenberg comes off as a real tool. Then again he’s like that in real life so maybe he wasn’t really acting.
