The director and actress have been travelling the world promoting the much-hyped film, and in the process, it appears they’ve become the greatest pals.

They even feature on this months Variety cover


But why?

Greta said she cast Saoirse in MINUTES

Greta said she met Saoirse at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival and went to her hotel room to show her the script.

She had read the script and she really responded to it from her heart. She said, ‘I know I’m from Ireland [and] a tiny town all across the world, but I’m telling you: I know this and I know this story and I know this girl. I need to do this.
So we met up and we read the script out loud and she read all of Lady Bird’s lines and I read everybody else’s lines and I knew. I knew within two pages she was the person; I knew she was Lady Bird.


Ever since that moment, they’ve been goals


3. Saoirse’s Gotham speech when she picked up Best Actress was basically a love letter to Greta

I’m so proud of her and I’m so proud that I got to be in this movie and have it be directed by you, you’re incredible.
