“My biggest nightmare is that I do something where [HBO would] be like, ‘That’s why you don’t give shows to 25-year-old girls.’ I’m always afraid that I’m being unprofessional, yet I continue to sign all my e-mails ‘xoxo.’ All my freakouts have been pretty private and directed at family pets and/or people I have been dating for too short a time to freak out at in that way … I did come home from a long day recently, and I laid down on the couch next to my dog, and I was so happy to be with a companion that’s not expecting me to do anything. He’s licking my face, and I looked down, and he had the biggest erection. I just punched him. I was like, ‘I just can’t with you right now.’ Everyone needs something from me.”
– Lena Dunham in her recent New York Times Magazine interview. She also talks about how she is just now moving out of her parents’ house and other interesting stuff about the philosophy behind the sex scenes in “Girls.” I continue to be impressed with how unapologetic she is. I really admire that. And I’m a big fan of the show.
