“Girls”‘ Jemima Kirke On “Stupid” & “Fascinating” Internet Comments

"It surprises me how stupid people can be. It surprises me how many women hate other women, or feel uncomfortable with themselves.

Annoying Reporter Asks Lena Dunham Why She’s Naked So Often On “Girls,” Gets Deservedly Scolded

Lena Dunham is naked, or partially naked, fairly frequently on "Girls." (So is Jemima Kirke. Both Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet keep themselves more covered up.)

I am the rare Brooklyn-dwelling twenty-something female who has seen no more than three (3) episodes of the hit HBO series, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate how nicely those "Girls" clean up, right?

Hannah Twerks Against A Gravestone In The “Girls” Season 3 Trailer

I can't believe "Girls"' third season starts in less than two months.

Adam Driver Refuses To Watch Himself On “Girls”

"With 'Girls,' after I saw the pilot, I was like, 'There’s no way I can watch the rest of this series, especially if it continues to go on,' because I feel like there’s an impulse to try to make it look better or neater or more perfect, and when I watch theater, television, movies, it'…

Hustler’s “This Ain’t Girls” Parody Porn Of “Girls” Is Here

... and it's kinda meh. The NSFW blog Fleshbot posted a trailer for "This Ain't Girls" and, well, it's clear that everything we like about "Girls" doesn't translate to porn. Not even the girls. Is the acting in porn always this bad? Don't answer that.

The “Girls” Season 3 Teaser Is A Bunch Of Instagram Photos That Tell Us Nothing

Sadly, HBO's new teaser trailer for "Girls" season three, made up of a bunch of Instagram-style photos from the set, tells us just about nothing in the way of plot points. Well, that's not entirely true; we know that Hannah and Adam will hug and that the whole gang will go to the beach. I…

Adam Driver Takes Donkey-Riding Very Seriously

God bless, Adam Driver. He's elevated High Fashion Magazine Donkey Riding to an artform. Here, posed atop said donkey with supermodel Daria Werbowy in the latest issue of Vogue, the "Girls" star's steely gaze conveys a heady dedication to the task at hand. I will ride this donkey over the crest of…
