- The term "Lady Bird" is by far best known in American cultural history as the nickname of Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson, the wife of the 36th U.S. president, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and first lady of the United States. This movie has nothing to do with the Johnsons or the American presidency, but it was coincidentally released into U.S. theaters simultaneously with Rob Reiner's biopic LBJ, starring Woody Harrelson as President Johnson and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Mrs. Johnson. From 2005 to 2013, Leigh was married to director Noah Baumbach. In April 2013, the New Yorker magazine reported that the writer/director of Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig, had become Baumbach's romantic partner.
- Lucas Hedges and Saoirse Ronan previously appeared in The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014).
