HOPELESS HEARTBREAK Greta Gerwig gets dumped by Joel Kinnamin in Lola Versus (Myles Aronowitz)

When Lola (Arthur’s Greta Gerwig), a straitlaced New Yorker in her late 20s, is dumped by her fiancé The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman) just weeks before their wedding, her dreams of a picture-perfect lifestyle appear to vanish, and no amount of booze or boys can help her cope. Gerwig could definitely relate to her character’s anxiety. ”When you’re 24, it’s hard to feel like you’re falling behind because everybody is falling behind,” says the actress. ”But by the time you’re 28 or 29, if someone pulls the rug out from under you, then it’s much scarier.” Seems that growing up, just like breaking up, is hard to do.
