Noah Baumbach probably wrote Barbie with the film’s director (and life partner) Greta Gerwig, but was apparently not present at Sunday’s Los Angeles premiere.
While Greta was standing with the stars of the film, Noah was notably absent.
Turns out, he had a reason to miss the big event. Noah is the director and writer behind films like White Noise, A Marriage Storyand Meyerowitz stories free. It was even nominated twice for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars: in 2006 for The Squid and the Whale and in 2020 for A Marriage Story.
According to Time, Greta acknowledged that he was not present at the premiere before the film was shown.
“My co-writer and co-creator, my partner in love and art, Noah Baumbach is not here. “He’s very supportive of the Writers Guild of America fight,” Greta said, according to Time. “From the first line to the last cut, this film is as big as anyone. It’s a Barbie girl. There is nothing inside Barbie happened without him, and nothing in Hollywood happens without writers. “
Noah is not the first celebrity to jump on a public event in support of the WGA strike. In May, Drew Barrymore dropped out of hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards to stand in solidarity.
Other stars have taken other measures to withstand the strike, such as picketing like Rob Lowe.
Ariana DeBose acknowledged the strike while hosting the Tony Awards last month, which was broadcast without a script, as WGA writers usually write the show. “To everyone who had a hand in finding that compromise, I say thank you!” she said of the WGA and Tonys allowing the awards show to continue amid the strike.
Dermot Mulroney even walked away from his interview recently The View in support of the strike.
