“Girls” Star Jemima Kirke Presents A Short Film On The History Of Women In Art

Where Are The Women?

Any “Girls” fan worth her battery-operated boyfriend knows that Jemima Kirke, who plays Jessa, is first-and-foremost an artist. In this new short film presented by the Tate galleries and Le Méridien hotels, Jemima takes us back through Western civilization’s long history of ignoring female artists. (Obviously such a conversation could not exist without the feminist activist group The Guerrilla Girls, who are front and center in the short film!) “There were always women who were artists, but men who wrote the history books,” says Jemima. “And somehow, they forgot to mention them.” I do recommend you watch — it’s a must see for any feminist or art history buff.

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

Lena Dunham Is Sexy

“It surprises me how stupid people can be. It surprises me how many women hate other women, or feel uncomfortable with themselves. There’s a good portion of women who are offended by the show, which I do find strange. I read them because it’s fascinating. ‘Like Patrick Wilson would sleep with her!’ You know what? He might, and in this story, he did! And why does that bother you? Is it not realistic enough, or is it that you haven’t seen it in other shows in movies enough?”

Yes, THIS. I love what Jemima Kirke — who plays Jessa on “Girls” — has to say to NYMag.com’s Vulture blog about a certain strain of internet comments that often question Lena Dunham’s desirability. Why is it so hard for some people to believe that a man who looks like Patrick Wilson would sleep with a woman like Dunham? Is it really unrealistic or is it just TV and movies that make it seem that way because those pairings are rarely shown on screen? Good questions. Keep reading »

It’s not just Allison Williams who has locked lips with costar Jemima Kirke: the lovely, floaty Jemima appears in a bridal boutique lookbook for a New York City shop kissing another woman. Declaring “Fuck weddings” on their website, Stone Fox Bride says they have “a dress for every batshit bride out there,” which certainly sounds like Jessa on “Girls.” [Queerty]

“Acting is secondary—I don’t feel like it’s going to stick around because it’s not something I want to do forever. My art has always been my top priority and I have far more experience in that field than I do in film. It’s hard to explain without sounding like a dick. I’m not that person. I’m really grateful for such enjoyable work, I just don’t feel as though I have any clout as an actor. I haven’t earned it, and I don’t intend to.”
