Lena Dunham is everywhere right now. So, it’s no surprise that she will be gracing the cover of the March issue of Rolling Stone. In the interview with Brian Hiatt, the “Girls” creator talks about her struggles with anxiety and OCD, her childhood fear of sex, her intravenous vitamin drips and her reaction to criticism about the show’s lack of diversity. I was able to dig up a few quotes from the piece before it drops. If these quotes are any indication, the interview should prove to be a provocative one. Check them out after the jump. Keep reading »
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]
The best way to define what is “sexy” is to first define what is not sexy. Duck face? Not sexy. Fake tans? Not sexy. Internet think pieces about how some young woman making millions in the public aquarium isn’t sexy? Not sexy AND IRONIC.
Lena Dunham’s character Hannah in “Girls” is sexy. Apparently this is a thing that has to be written. She combusts with sexual energy and heartbreaking vulnerability — she simultaneously claws out of and slinks around comfortably in her tattooed skin. Keep reading »
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 a hottie in the series’ possibly most naked episode. At this point, I’m pretty sure I know Dunham’s breasts better than my own.
Anyway, the episode starts with Wilson’s character Joshua coming into Grumpy’s and complaining that someone from the coffee shop is using his trash can for disposing of their garbage. Hannah eventually stops by his house and admits to being the culprit. She initially started dumping Grumpy’s trash in his can because she lost the key to the dumpster and didn’t want to tell Ray. Then she kept using Josh’s dumpster because they liked how the illicitness of it made her feel. All this talk about naughtiness must have gotten both Hannah and Joshua in a tizzy because pretty soon they were fucking in his kitchen. NSFW clip above! Keep reading »
“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 like an effort was made to add some color — and it came across as forced. … We’re supposed to find these girls somehow charming because of their flawed characters. Their intense self-involvement is meant to be cute and it can be… at times. But not enough to overcome our impatience with their inability to have any personal insight. They’re all educated but fatally ignorant.”
––Oh, that’s just basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar weighing in on the “Girls” racial diversity controversy. Abdul-Jabbar might be up there on the list of the world’s least likely “Girls” watchers, but I am super into his thoughtful, measured take on the show. [Huffington Post]
