Designing Greta


· Greenberg star Greta Gerwig shared a lot of things in her interview with us, but not this anecdote about the Berlin Film Festival, which she saved for the T Magazine blog:

'For the first press conference, I didn't really express what I needed to the makeup person. I looked like I walked off the set of "Designing Women." I look like I'm 40. I have the biggest hair. The makeup's really heavy. My friends even Photoshopped a picture of me into "Designing Women" and gave it to me when I got back. And then everyone started e-mailing me and was like, "Hey Greta, how's the weather in Dallas in 1986?!" Oh my God, it was the first time that pictures of me were everywhere, and I look crazy. And the best part of it was that my mom thought I looked amazing.'

    Sorry, but I ain't feelin' bad for her, and that hair ain't big. In that photo she looks positively rained on and washed out next to the others. She needs new friends.

    1. Watch, you're going to inspire CBS to do a "Desiging Women" revival with Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and one or two of the Kardashians.
    2. Pomeranian: Cute. Mickey: Looks like he's partially melted.
    3. Because if he doesn't the Shat will kick his ass.
    4. Nah, I got something else to do.
    5. Well, bully for him, I said in my most Teddy Roosevelt tone.
    6. A story that takes place almost entirely in one house, and the studio will still spend $100 million to make it!
    7. What revelation? That Chewbacca's been snogging Leia?
    8. They have to show something since people stopped making independent films.
