"I don’t dance exactly like that. But Lena and I have a mutual friend, the incomparable Claire Danes, who is not just an amazing actress but a really fantastic dancer, and Claire and I dance together, pretty seriously.

Yesterday, the lady blog Jezebel posted that they were willing to pay $10,000 for unretouched photos from Lena Dunham's Vogue cover shoot, writing: Our desire to see these images pre-Photoshop is not about seeing what Dunham herself "really" looks like; we can see that every Sunday night or with a cursory Google search.

“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. 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?

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.) Some of Lena's nudity is during sex scenes, while a bunch of others are when her character is changing clothes, sitting on the toilet, or in the bath or…

Well Played: The Cast Of “Girls” Premieres Season 3 In Style

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? I'm actually really loving Lena Dunham's sparkly look here most of all, and I will never stop wanting to be/be…

Lena Dunham And Judy Blume’s First Conversation Was So Compelling That It’s Been Turned Into A Book

We shouldn't be surprised that when Lena Dunham got together with YA author Judy Blume, their first conversation about "writing, celebrity, sex, censorship, and favorite breakfasts" was so earnest and entertaining that it was worthy of publication. The result is a limited-edition, 80-page book published by McSweeney's The Believer. Blume, a "Girls" fan, says she…

What Lena Dunham Taught Me About “Sunshine Stealers” And Why I Can’t Wait To Read Her Book

Last night, Amelia and I went to see David Sedaris and Lena Dunham read their work at Carnegie Hall.

Lena Dunham Interviews Mindy Kaling In BFF Conversation We Should Have Been Invited To

Lena Dunham interviewed Mindy Kaling for RookieMag.com's second book, Rookie Yearbook 2. "More than half the questions I am asked are about the politics of the way I look," Mindy Kaling said.

Anna Wintour Is Rumored To Be Courting Lena Dunham For A Vogue Cover

Lena Dunham is just about as divisive a celebrity as they come. As seemingly harmless as she is, there's still a faction of people, young and old, who cannot stand her.

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.

Read A Love Letter That Lena Dunham Sent To Her Boyfriend

My love life is currently in flux, best described as "genuinely complicated" with a heavy dose of "timing sucks," and I admit I'm prone to occasional moments of unfair irritation in my encounters with folks who are seemingly simply and easily in love. I expected such a flare-up when I started reading a love letter (well, love…

Lena Dunham Hopes Her Boobs Never Outstay Their Welcome

“I always hope that I’ll know when I no longer need to show my breasts for good. Like I’ll know when to pack it in and put a bra on. That is my prayer to the universe. But then, maybe it will be really important that I do it when I’m 60. Who knows? I…
