Due to speculation by many fans of the film, Timothée Chalamet, who played Kyle, made it clear on an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (2014) that he is "nothing like his character" in Lady Bird (2017).
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson:
Hi Mom and Dad, it's me, Christine. It's the name you gave me. It's a good one. Dad, this is more for Mom. Hey, Mom, did you feel emotional the first time that you drove in Sacramento? I did and I wanted to tell you, but we weren't really talking ...
When Lady Bird's parents pull up to the curb at the airport, a United sign is visible bearing the company's current globe logo, which it inherited from its merger with Continental Airlines. The scene takes place in summer 2003, but the United/Continental merger re-branding was not completed until 2012.
