Greta Gerwig Had An Unexpected Backup Plan When She Was Rejected From Acting Programs

Greta Gerwig may be up for Best Director at the Oscars but she was ironically rejected from all the formal acting and writing programs she applied to growing up!

The Lady Bird director opened up about what her plan was if she hadn’t continued to pursue her passion.

“I did not get into any graduate schools. Not one. When I was an undergrad I didn’t get into any acting programs and I was like, ‘Well maybe writing it what I’ll do.’ And then I got rejected from those,” Greta said while on The Ellen Show.

She added, “I went to college…but my mom was very good at getting me to get backup plans, so I’m a certified aerobics instructor!”

Check out Greta‘s entire interview below…
