Awards Extra: Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig Flip the Script

“In the Virginia Woolf speech she gave that was turned into the book A Room of One’s Own, she says, ‘Men don’t know what women do when they’re not there,’” Gerwig said. “Which is a very simple truth, but it is truth. They don’t know . . . I was in the position of being able to access some truth that you would never be able to have if you were a guy, because you aren’t there when mothers and daughters are fighting alone or when best friends are talking. What is the experience of being the teenage girl while you’re with a guy . . . that emotional experience, as opposed to the romantic-comedy tropes?”
