Lena Dunham is this amazing young lady who created and stars in one of the most exciting shows on television today called GIRLS. The show is a younger, funnier and more current version of Sex and The City. Lena is the main character and has a very “real” body which she does not mind showing on the show. By all accounts no-one would call her “fat”. She’s just not implanted or starving like many of the actresses in Hollywood.
Outspoken and often obnoxious Howard Stern recently commented on Lena and the show:
“It’s a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape. She seems—it’s like—I don’t want to see that.
I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she’s such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on. My opinion, if I was a producer on that, I’d say: ‘Honey, you’re a little too close to the project. You need to allow the other characters to breathe a little and let us get invested in them.
Good for her. It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything going.”
My personal thoughts: Lena, please do not listen to this ridiculous man, you are beautiful, talented and have the support of women and men who adore you exactly the way you are. As a young talent in Hollywood I’m sure you will be or have been asked repeatedly to lose weight. The show is simply brilliant for many reasons, the writing, cast, directing but most of all the fans love it because it’s a show that does not make US (the viewer) feel bad. We identify with someone or have been in similar situations as this cast of characters. You are very beautiful and seeing a real body validates many women out there who question their beauty every day. As for Howard Stern – what can I say? Your warped sense of reality and women is toxic. In my world “fat chicks” are doing amazing things!
Congratulations on another season to Lena Dunham!
