A New “Girls” Trailer Is Here!

Girls
"The Plan Is...There Is No Plan"

A new trailer for season four of “Girls” has arrived, and our favorite flailing anti-heroines look just as aimless and tone-deaf as ever — and I guess we really wouldn’t have it any other way, would we? The trailer also includes an excellent dig at Woody Allen in which Jessa recites his quote “the heart wants what it wants” and Hannah shuts that nonsense down. I am officially excited for the next season in spite of myself. It premieres on HBO on January 11 at 9 p.m.. [HuffIngton Post]

The “Girls” Season 4 Trailer Has Arrived!

The "Girls" Season 4 Trailer Has Arrived!
Hannah Is In Iowa, Remember?

Controversy or not, Lena Dunham’s not going anywhere except back to the small screen for season four of “Girls.” And today we have the first trailer, which shows Hannah back in Iowa as a grad school student. I had totally forgotten that happened at the end of season three, though I don’t expect the show will keep Hannah away from New York City, her friends and, of course, boyfriend Adam for very long. Meanwhile, it looks like Shosh is dealing with the stress of finding her first post-college job, Marnie is still pining away for that sexy musician with the girlfriend and, uh, then there’s Jessa, getting arrested for god knows what. “Girls”‘ fourth season premieres on January 11 on HBO.

12 Charmingly Neurotic Onscreen Dudes Worth Crushing On

Know-it-all alpha dudes without a care in the world are great and all, but who doesn’t love that their neurotic sidekick just as much? TV and movies are full of lovable, mildly troubled neurotic souls who spend their days worrying, analyzing and questioning every event — and I have a major crush on them. The traits that make these guys so quirky also make them thoughtful and loving, right? Not all of them are the perfect boyfriend material I wish they were, as exhibited by their many failed onscreen relationships, but a girl can dream, can’t she? Here are 12 neurotic characters I’m totally into.

15 Kickass Lena Dunham Quotes To Celebrate Her New Book

Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham’s first book, Not That Kind Of Girl, is out today, and The Frisky staff is excited. If the book is anything like the writing she’s put out into the world so far, we can expect a smart and honest take on experiences that are so wildly universal that we’ll be scratching our heads wondering why nobody’s talked about them before her. What makes Lena’s work so much fun to watch (and read) is that just like the rest of us, she gets insecure sometimes and learns through making mistakes — and she owns up to every minute of it. Here are some insightful, kickass Lena quotes to get you ready for the book: Keep reading »

Zosia Mamet: Feminism Is “Not About Running A Fortune 500 Company”

“I think that the term [feminist] has been incredibly bastardized. I am a huge advocate of empowering women — the idea of women supporting each other and supporting themselves and making strong choices that make them happy. I think often feminism gets a very narrow definition. It’s not about making shit-tons of money and running a Fortune 500 company. It’s about doing what makes you feel good as a woman, and if that’s being a stay-at-home mom, you can be just as much of a feminist that way as you can as a fighter pilot. So in that way, yeah, of course.”

It’s a sign of the zeitgeist, I guess, when an otherwise frothy interview with an actress on one of the hottest shows on TV right now turns from face wash and lipstick to feminism? That’s what I choose to believe at least: “Girls” star Zosia Mamet spoke with Allure about makeup tips and fielded a question about whether she calls herself a feminist. Mamet, who writes a column for Glamour, has written a critique of “lean in” feminism before. Her answer was somewhat one-dimensional — I mean, it takes an enormous amount of privilege in the first place to choose to be a stay-at-home mom — but otherwise I solidly agree with Mamet. Women’s equality is about much more than a privileged, elite group of women being financially successful under capitalism. [Allure] [Image via AKM-GSI]
