Jennifer Jason Leigh Files for Divorce...

...from Noah Baumbach. %0D %0D They have an infant child. What's the problem? Anyone know?

by Anonymousreply 6712/07/2012

They're str8 - and str8 people can't seem to stay married.

She probably got around to seeing "Margot at the Wedding." I wouldn't forgive him either...

Fuck off r1.

He's an asshole

And she's crazy.%0D %0D You'd think it would be a marriage made in heaven.

by Anonymousreply 511/23/2010

That's surprising. They were together for a while, at least five years or more. It looked like JJL finally found a good mate in NB. Then again, it wouldn't surprise me if what kept them together was trying to have a kid. It couldn't have been easy for her to get pregnant. She's at least 45.

Go back to iVillage, R3.

I still can't believe that for an actress of her caliber, Jennifer has no Oscar nomination, while both Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Tilly snagged one each.

[quote]And she's crazy.

Actually, what I heard from a friend of mine who is an actor and who worked with JJL is that she's very shy and vulnerable. This was ten years ago when she dated a guy who was a bit of a pompous jerk.

Having a baby will fuck up the strongest relationships. They're little crying crapping machines.

by Anonymousreply 1011/23/2010

Something tells me they're both tiresome people. JJL is a very mannered actress - she has a similar kind of "marbles in her mouth" speech that Mary Louise Parker indulges in. I'm sure he's very full of himself, like so many acclaimed indie directors.

by Anonymousreply 1111/23/2010

He probably got around to seeing "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle."%0D %0D I wouldn't forgive her either...

Umm...because she's batshit crazy?

He's a pain in the ass...and no not the good the kind.

by Anonymousreply 1411/23/2010

I think we have a winner at R10.%0D %0D Also, and this is just my opinion, a woman who waits until she is in her 40s to have a baby probably never really wanted a baby in the first place. I've seen my share of women who have that last chance baby panic and impulsively have a baby when they previously were not that interested.

by Anonymousreply 1511/23/2010

I was unlucky enough to attend a press screening of Margot at the Wedding and got to see the couple in person. He seemed like a real smug idiot, even worse than the Greenberg character he created, and Jennifer seemed like one of these doting wives who'll take any crap a guy throws at them. I found their chemistry very off, and wondered why she was with him.

by Anonymousreply 1611/23/2010

WOW at R16--so the scene in "Margot" where Ciar%C3%A1n Hinds brutally humiliates Nicole Kidman's character at the library reading is truer to life than we expected!

by Anonymousreply 1711/23/2010

"Best Little Girl in the World" I hope she eats for the infant's sake.

by Anonymousreply 1811/23/2010

I'm sure even her filing was quirky and mannered.

by Anonymousreply 1911/23/2010

Jesus, his name is Noah Baumbach. Isn't that enough?

by Anonymousreply 2011/23/2010

I don't understand why is everyone so hard on her? So you don't like her acting. Fine. But, batshit crazy? Where did that come from? I never heard any bad stories about her. She seems to be a very low key person.

by Anonymousreply 2111/23/2010

She's a hardcore Republican.

by Anonymousreply 2211/23/2010

She's no Phoebe Cates, that's for damn sure.

by Anonymousreply 2311/23/2010

She was great in Greenberg

by Anonymousreply 2411/23/2010

Well she probably really liked him after the success of Squid and the Whale. Then just kinda liked him after the bomb of Margot at the Wedding. And then decided to call it quits after Greenburg. It's every actresses dream to hook up with a cool director. But when the director's star starts to dull, the actress bails. Just ask Kate Winslet.

by Anonymousreply 2511/23/2010

Margot at the Wedding was great. Kidman is delightfully bitchy.

by Anonymousreply 2611/23/2010

Was The Anniversary Party about their relationship?

by Anonymousreply 2711/23/2010

R27, you dolt, The Anniversary Party came out way before JJL met/married NB.

by Anonymousreply 2811/23/2010

JJL is a hardcore Republican? You are joking right?

by Anonymousreply 2911/23/2010

JJL is not a hardcore Repub. Please.

by Anonymousreply 3011/23/2010

r28, but it seems to be the exact story of their relationship.

by Anonymousreply 3111/23/2010

I haven't forgiven Baumbach for almost derailing Wes Anderson's career.

by Anonymousreply 3211/24/2010

She's gotten really fat and dowdy, for one thing.

by Anonymousreply 3311/24/2010

She should marry Bridget Fonda.

by Anonymousreply 3411/24/2010

I always thought she pinged big time.

by Anonymousreply 3511/24/2010

Considering Baumbach's movies all explore the lives of emotionally dysfunctional people and their ruined relationships, one shouldn't consider it particularly surprising.

[quote]She's gotten really fat and dowdy, for one thing.

Dowdy maybe, but she's not fat.

She looks like she could be Isabelle Huppert's younger sister:

by Anonymousreply 3711/24/2010

I really liked her in The Love Letter.%0D %0D Of course I drooled over Campbell Scott.

by Anonymousreply 3811/24/2010

Is their kid normal?

by Anonymousreply 3907/17/2012

I've worked with her and she IS batshit crazy. She has friends who are actors who love her so I'm sure she's nice to them so I gues it's all about insecurities but nevertheless, she is not nice to others.

by Anonymousreply 4007/17/2012

Batshit crazy like what? Give us examples.

by Anonymousreply 4107/17/2012

I think R25 hit the nail on the head. This is something actresses do. Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz now JJL.

And I don't think she ever recovered from Steven Spielberg killing her father.

by Anonymousreply 4207/17/2012

Batshit crazy as in sullen, unsociable and unable to commit to anything. In a collaborative art like acting, this can be very trying.

by Anonymousreply 4307/17/2012

You bitches don't know anything. He was fucking Greta Gerwig, right after Jennifer had the baby. He's a douchebag who humiliated her. Also, she's a lovely person, just painfully shy - shyness comes across as bitchy, but that's not her intent.

by Anonymousreply 4407/17/2012

Can't commit like cancels appointments or what?

by Anonymousreply 4507/17/2012

Steven Spielberg killed her father?

by Anonymousreply 4607/17/2012

Was good in Last Exit to Brooklyn, a very depressing movie. Maybe she lost her head when Vic Morrow died?

by Anonymousreply 4707/17/2012

Spielberg decapitated her dad with a helicopter.

by Anonymousreply 4807/17/2012

OMG, another thread from two years ago bumped up? For what possible purpose? So R39 can ask if their child is abnormal? WTF?

by Anonymousreply 4907/17/2012

Not Steven Spielberg, John Landis was the director on the set of the Twilight Zone movie where her father, actor Vic Morrow was killed in a helicopter explosion scene gone wrong. I think Spielberg was one of the producers and got sued.

by Anonymousreply 5007/17/2012

John Landis. Not Spielberg.

by Anonymousreply 5107/17/2012

The current threads are boring as hell. I searched for ones that were even slightly interesting and they happen to be not from today. What's your fucking problem? Start an interesting thread, if you're so against anyone posting to still active threads in the database which happen to not be from this week. Suck it, Cheryl.

Ick. Now she's stuck alone with a kid.

He did an adaption of The Corrections that is apparently not going to get aired.

He looks like a Jewish Griffin Dunne.

Jennifer was good in Margot at the Wedding.

The self-proclaimed "Method Acting Troll" is all over this thread. (Troll-dar R39 and watch it light up.) You're a bore, darling. What's your real beef with JJL?

by Anonymousreply 6307/18/2012

I love Jennifer Jason Leigh. No beef with her at all. Just curious about her. Loved Mrs. Parker, Georgia, The Anniversary Party, etc. Tought she wass crap on stage in Proof and Abigail's Party. Loved her Last Exit To Brooklyn, Rush, even Existenz, etc. why don't you provide some actual content instead of stalking posters? Or do you just have nothing to contribute, r63? Are you one of those people whom the world is better off without?

by Anonymousreply 6407/18/2012


by Anonymousreply 6512/07/2012

I thought Baumbach and JJL broke up because he left her for Mumblecore star Greta Gerwig, who was the female lead in Greenberg.
