Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach's latest writing collaboration (Barbie, ever heard of it?) has once again thrust their relationship in the spotlight. By which I mean we suddenly need to know everything about their vibe—including how they met (on the set of Greenberg) and fell in love (after Noah's divorce). And honestly, the details are kinda sparse due to these two being extremely private, not posting each other on social media (due to...not having social media), and keeping things professional-relationship-only during interviews. So, naturally a deep dive in the form of a timeline is in order.
Noah and his then-wife Jennifer Jason Leigh debut Greenberg, which stars several celebs including Ben Stiller, Chris Messina, Brie Larson, Juno Temple, and Greta Gerwig.
As the New Yorker put it in 2013, "Baumbach and Gerwig met when he cast her alongside Stiller in Greenberg; later, Baumbach separated from Jennifer Jason Leigh, his partner of nine years, and he and Gerwig became both a couple and a writing team. They kept this fairly quiet."
Here are their vibes during press for Greenberg, in case you immediately need to analyze them.
November 15, 2010
Noah and Jennifer Jason Leigh divorce.
FYI: A Marriage Story was speculated to be based, in part, on the end of Noah's relationship with Jennifer, though Noah disputed that. “This movie is not autobiographical; it’s personal, and there’s a true distinction in that,” he told The Times. Still, he shared both the script and the film with Jennifer. “I showed her the script,” he told WSJ magazine. “And then I showed her the movie a little bit ago. She likes it a lot.”
Noah and Greta start dating. And for those respectfully curious about the timing of all this, it's clear they didn't get together until after Noah's divorce because that same New Yorker profile notes that "Baumbach and Gerwig firmly place the start of their romance at a point after his separation."
