Greta Gerwig is one of the hottest up-and-coming stars in the entire movie industry. She stars in the hippest movies of the season, “Frances Ha,” which she co-wrote with director Noah Baumbach, whom she’s dating in real life.
That might be shocking to former co-star Russell Brand—with whom she appeared in the movie Arthur. The British comedian once called Greta “undateable.”
“I would say something nerdy,” Greta recalls, “and he would look at me and say, ‘Greta Gerwig: UNDATEABLE.’” Brand even joked that he’d start a television show that would follow her around until she said something ‘idiotic,’ then brand her ‘UNDATEABLE.’

“I was like, ‘Oh that sounds good, Russell.” Greta’s impression of him is also pretty amazing.
But it looks like Brand won’t ever get his reality show, because Greta’s getting such rave reviews for her turn in Frances Ha. And with such a bright future, she has set the bar high for herself. “I wanna be like Clint Eastwood, but a lady,” she tells Ali, about her desire to act, write, direct, and produce strong female characters.
