Today is Jemima Kirke Source’s birthday! It’s been a year since the website went online, and we’re so glad of all the content we could put out there for you guys, it’s not always easy but it’s all there! And we still haven’t finished! There’s so much to do! A lot of magazines to buy, movies and interviews to screen cap, and all I can say is that I hope there’s more and more! We love Jemima!
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.
You have the chance to go and see Jemima’s exhibition for one more week – until January 28! Really good new if you haven’t been able to go yet.
Last month, Jemima Kirke, best known as wild-child Jessa on Girls, told us why she had started painting her friends in wedding dresses. She wanted to “reopen the case” on marriage, an institution she’s “really perplexed by,” even though she’s been married before and says she’d do it again.
She said the series of paintings, currently on display at Sargent’s Daughters, had colored her opinion about the #metoo movement, which got us to talking about a controversy that had recently embroiled her old castmate Lena Dunham.
Needless to say, the jury is still out on marriage (heck, it’s still out on conventional relationships, given what Dunham recently said after splitting with her boyfriend of five years, Jack Antonoff). Which means it’s a good thing you now have more time to contemplate Kirke’s show; it’s been extended through Jan. 28.
Before you head on over to Sargent’s Daughters (179 East Broadway) on a thematically appropriate WED-nesday, read our q&a with the artist here.
