Baumbach and Gerwig hatched their biggest collaboration yet when they worked on the script for the “Barbie” movie, which was released on July 21. Apparently, though, Baumbach wasn’t keen on joining the project at first.

“I thought it was a terrible idea and Greta signed me up for it,” Baumbach said at a “Barbie” screening on Oct. 27, per Variety. “I was just like, ‘I don’t see how this is going to be good at all.’ I kind of blocked it for a while and every time she’d bring it up, I’d be like, ‘You’ve gotta get us out of this.’ And then the pandemic happened . . .”

Everything changed when he saw Gerwig’s early ideas about the story, though. “It was Barbie waking up in her Dreamhouse and coming out to her backyard and meeting somebody who was sick and dying,” Baumbach said. “I read these pages and I thought, ‘I understand now what this is.’ . . . The movie is about embracing your mortality and about the mess of it all, so it was exciting.”

The project wound up being a bonding experience for the couple, who would attempt to “amuse each other and one up each other,” Baumbach added. “Then it was the most fun I think either of us have ever had, right? And then at a certain point, I was like, ‘I think this is the best thing we’ve ever written,'” he continued. “I know enough always just to follow what Greta says, so even in my bellyaching and revolting, I kind of knew, ‘Well if she really believes it, then there’s something there.'”
