Lena Dunham Says Men Are Just As Sensitive As Women

"I never chalk up anything to the gender divide and say ‘Well, that’s just a male thing.’  I hate the conventional wisdom that men are supposedly complete pieces of shit and it’s our job as women to put up with them.  Men are just as sensitive and easily victimized as women are, but there’s not…

Lena Dunham’s Secret “Zero Dark Thirty” Audition

God love her, but Lena Dunham has a particular way about her. Which is why Chelsea Davison's spot-on impersonation of Dunham auditioning for the movie "Zero Dark Thirty" is so hilarious.

The Soapbox: Lisa Lampanelli’s Racist Schtick Abuses The Art Of Comedy

Insult comedian Lisa Lampanelli has made headlines again – for all the wrong reasons.

Lena Dunham Says Lisa Lampanelli Using The N-Word Made Her “Supremely Uncomfortable”

Lena Dunham has finally tweeted a response about comedian Lisa Lampanelli's use of the N-word in a TwitPic caption of the two ladies this Thursday. I believe Lena when she says that she would never use the racial slur herself  -- and I realize she didn't use the word in this -- but I think…

Patrick Wilson’s Wife, Dagmara Dominczyk, Has Some Thoughts About This Week’s “Girls”

Namely that it's really not so unrealistic that a guy as hot as Patrick would sleep with a woman with a muffin top like Hannah/Lena Dunham, because Patrick does her (with her size 10 muffin top body) all the time. Suck it, haters. [Twitter via The Gloss]…

Guy Talk: Lena Dunham Is Sexy And That’s The Final Word On That

The best way to define what is “sexy” is to first define what is not sexy. Duck face? Not sexy. Fake tans? Not sexy.

“Girls” Goes To Fantasy Land

So how about last night's "Girls" huh? It was definitely one of the weirder episode of the season and I half-expected Hannah to wake up at the end of the episode to realize her dalliance with a sexy older man (played by Patrick Wilson) was but a dream. Kudos to Lena Dunham for casting such…

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — Yes, That Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — Has A Lot Of Feelings About “Girls”

"I don't believe that people of color, sexual preference, or gender need to be shaken indiscriminately into every series like some sort of exotic seasoning. If the story calls for a black character, great. A story about a black neighborhood doesn't necessarily need white characters just to balance the racial profile. But this really seemed…

Lena Dunham Once Dated Her Own Sandy-The-Black-Republican

"Hannah acts like she has a political issue with [Sandy, the black Republican she is sleeping with], but what she actually has an issue with is him disliking what she does.

The Worst Dressed At The 2013 Golden Globes

Okay, honest: There wasn't that much actual dreckitude at this year's Golden Globes. As much as we love deriding a dress that's just totally wrong, most celebs got it pretty spot on. So don't think that everyone in this category is a total failure. It's just that ... they could have done better. It wasn't…
