Jenna Walton, a popular girl, and they vandalize a nun’s car. As Lady Bird grows closer to Kyle and. Jenna, she gradually deserts Julie, and she drops out of the theater program. She confronts Danny, but consoles him after he begins sobbing and expresses his struggle in coming out, and they become friends again.
