Greta Gerwig: 'I Like Confidence That's Not Totally Based On Anything'
Greta Gerwig is all smiles as she attends her Apple Store Soho Presents Meet The Fimmaker panel for her latest film Mistress America at the Apple Store Soho on Monday (August 10) in New York City.
The 32-year-old actress was joined by her co-screenwriter/director and real-life boyfriend Noah Baumbach, as they both sat down to discuss the upcoming flick.
“I feel like so often, for male characters too, but especially for female characters, an 18-year-old ingenue type of girl never gets to say, ‘Sometimes I think I’m just smarter and better than everyone else.’ That’s kind of a great thing,” Greta said about her character (via Variety). “At 18 you feel both completely insecure and like the dumbest person in the room, and like you’re maybe the best at the same time. I like confidence that’s not totally based on anything.”
FYI: Greta is wearing a Mizuki bracelet and necklace.
