Lena Dunham Needs For You To Get Over The Amount of Nudity on ‘Girls’
The cast of Girls, which has been renewed for a fourth season, took part in a panel discussion at the HBO portion of the 2014 Winter Television Critics Association tour at the Langham Hotel yesterday in Pasadena, California.
Lena Dunham wasn’t all that pleased with one journalist’s remark about Dunham’s character and her penchant for not wearing clothes.
“I don’t get the purpose of all of the nudity on the show … Your character is often naked just at random times for no reason,” the reporter pointed out, according to People.
“It’s because it’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive, I think, and I totally get it,” Dunham shot back. “If you are not into me, that’s your problem, and you’re going to have to work that out with professionals.”
Producer Judd Apatow quickly came to Dunham’s defense, publicly chastising the reporter.
“That was a very clumsily stated question that’s offensive on its face, and you should read it and discuss it with other people how you did that,” Apatow said from the stage. “It’s very offensive.”
It didn’t stop there. Apatow then asked the reporter if he had a girlfriend, adding “Does she like you?”
Season three of Girls premieres this Sunday on HBO.
