IFC’s How to Build a Girl: Beanie Feldstein in Conversation with Variety’s Jenelle Riley

May 15, 2020

The world fell in love with Beanie Feldstein in Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, where she played the relatable best friend of the titular character. Feldstein has since gone on to perfectly capture complicated heroines in films from Booksmart, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for lead actress in a comedy, and now in How To Build a Girl, the acclaimed adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s memoir. In addition, Feldstein has appeared on Broadway opposite Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! and will be seen later this year opposite Amy Schumer in The Humans. She will next begin production on American Crime Story: Impeachment as Monica Lewinsky. Feldstein talks with Variety editor Jenelle Riley about her busy career and the complex challenges of How To Build a Girl, available in the U.S. on May 8.
