Jemima Kirke’s Growing Pains After ‘Girls’: On Marriage, Divorce, and Art in the Trump Era
The actress best known for her work on the HBO culture bomb describes how she learned to stop resenting ‘Girls,’ and her whirlwind performance in a new film, ‘Wild Honey Pie.’
In Wild Honey Pie!, which premiered at the South By Southwest Festival this week, Jemima Kirke stars as one half of an eccentric married couple attempting to pull off a “Shakespeare by the Sea” festival.
Shifting between comedy and tragedy, writer and director Jamie Adams’ exploration of art and monogamy benefits tremendously from Kirke’s memorable performance. As Gillian, Kirke sets a series of fires, breathing endless oxygen into her worst ideas and impulses. She cheats on her husband, kisses a potential employer, curses out her mother-in-law and frets constantly over her less-than-profitable playwriting career. As Gillian stumbles into new lows, Kirke infuses her character with so much genuine feeling that no one—not her husband nor the audience—can hold any of it against her. It’s an ugly, frantic, funny, challenging role, one in which Kirke appears to have lost herself completely.
Here is new photos from Untogether, both from behind the scenes and production stills. We are so excited over this upcoming movie and it looks amazing! It will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23. The festival is in New York so if you are able to, you should attend! 🙂
Jemima attended the Black Panther Screening in New York City on February 13 and she also went to the after party! You can view some photos in the gallery!
Some new photos from Wild Honey Pie and the movie will be shown at the SXSW Film Festival which is during March 9-18, 2018 in Austin, TX. It seems like Jemima is going there as well! We are really looking forward to this movie!

Jemima has put up her townhouse for sale and everything about it is just amazing! She has such an eye for interior design.
It wasn’t so long ago, at the zenith of the hype surrounding HBO’s millennial dramedy Girls, that one of its stars, Jemima Kirke (who played the perpetually messed-up Jessa), shelled out $2.036 million for a Carroll Gardens brownstone. (It features prominently in a “Life in Pictures” photo essay she participated in for New York in 2014.)
But now, a little over four years later, it looks like Kirke is ready to move on: WWD reports that she’s selling the four-bedroom home for $4.495 million. James Joshua Viscardi of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing, which just hit the market today.
The turn-of-the-century brownstone was “magnificently gut renovated and restored to its nineteenth century grandeur,” according to the listing, and bits of Kirke’s bohemian side (she started out as a painter, not an actress) also shine through. Art covers the walls, and there are decorative touches—like a freestanding vintage tub in the master bedroom—that give the place character.
On the practical side of things, the home has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms; an inviting, open kitchen that connects to a deck; and a roof terrace. It’s currently set up as a single-family home, but the basement could be converted to an income-producing apartment. (Kirke used it as her studio.)
There’s an open house on Saturday should you want to check it all out for yourself.
