Greta Gerwig, the director of the movie ‘Barbie,’ shared in a recent interview with the Guardian that she has been diagnosed with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
She explained that she had a lot of energy as a child, but she didn’t receive the diagnosis until she became an adult. ADHD can cause impulsive behavior and difficulty focusing.
She told the newspaper, “[At school I] had a ton of energy. Now, as an adult, I have ADHD – they diagnosed me. But as a kid, my mum was like: ‘Let’s sign her up for every activity. Let’s tire her out.’ I’ve always had a tremendous amount of enthusiasm. I was just interested in, like, everything. I had a really active imagination. I had a lot of really deep feelings. I was emotional.”

Greta Gerwig, who is 39 years old and an actress/director, has two children with her partner Noah Baumbach. She shared that her oldest son has inherited her fondness for “high drama
She said, “Occasionally he’ll have these moments of high drama. He’ll fall to the floor. He did this the other day. I wasn’t able to make him breakfast instantly, because I was feeding my three-month-old, and he fell to the floor, weeping and said: ‘I’m having a sorely trying day. It’s already a problem’.”
“I was like: ‘Oh, such drama’. But also, like: ‘Oh, that’s from me’.That’s my level of grandiose.”
The couple, Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, worked together on the movie ‘Barbie.’ However, Noah chose not to attend the film’s premiere in Los Angeles on Sunday (09.07.23) as a show of support for the ongoing Writers Guild of America strikes.

These strikes have been happening this year due to a disagreement between writers and studio executives regarding payment and working conditions.
Greta mentioned Noah and the other talented writers by adding, “My co-writer and co-creator, my partner in love and art, Noah Baumbach is not here. He is passionately supporting the fight of the Writers Guild of America.”
“From the first line to the last cut, this movie is his as much as anyone’s. He is a Barbie girl. Nothing in ‘Barbie’ happened without him, and nothing in Hollywood happens without writers.”
