Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s ‘Girls’, sat down with V Magazine for an interview and photos taken by Terry Richardson. You can always tell a Terry Richardson picture a mile away. They’re all the same. I’m surprised people haven’t gotten tired of his boring pictures by now. They’re seriously the same pictures, just different subjects.
Anyway, I love Lena. I love ‘Girls’, and I think she’s rather brilliant.
Here’s more from the interview via Celebitchy:
She love designer freebies:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI cannot deny it, and I cannot get over it. And they actually send them in my size. No oneÃ¢â¬â¢s being an asshole and sending them to me in a 4. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re sending me clothes, they fit, and what people should know is that I always wear them. Somehow even if I wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t have bought it, the fact that it was free and my grandmaÃ¢â¬â¢s depression-era mentality make me think it is the most beautiful thing I ever owned, and I wear it for several days straight.Ã¢â¬Â
SheÃ¢â¬â¢s friends with Taylor Swift:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅWe have D.M.Ã¢â¬â¢ed. IÃ¢â¬â¢m a really big fan. She started following me, and hereÃ¢â¬â¢s how you find out Taylor Swift is following you. You start hearing from all the insane Taylor Swift fans that are like Ã¢â¬ËIf Taylor Swift loves you I love you.Ã¢â¬â¢ So I sent her a message. I was like, Ã¢â¬ËI just want to let you know that your albums have gotten me through a lot of very hard times.Ã¢â¬â¢ When I tweeted that her new album was amazing, every one of my Twitter followers was like, Ã¢â¬ËI so hope that youÃ¢â¬â¢re joking.Ã¢â¬â¢ But I have no interest in liking anything ironically. If I wanted to be ironic, IÃ¢â¬â¢d grow a mustache.Ã¢â¬Â
SheÃ¢â¬â¢s not much for travel:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI hated India. I know youÃ¢â¬â¢re not allowed to hate India. But I did. I wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t happy. And I felt crazy. IÃ¢â¬â¢m a hypochondriac. I saw too many puppies that I thought needed me. So my mom and I got in a big fight and I left India. Early.Ã¢â¬Â
Growing up rich was still isolating:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s so trite, but I think so much of my worldview was formed by feeling isolated. If you go to school in New York, if you go to Saint AnnÃ¢â¬â¢s or Dalton, because there arenÃ¢â¬â¢t kids being shoved into lockers in the same way, youÃ¢â¬â¢re expected not to have that isolating adolescence. But from kindergarten onward, I was like, I donÃ¢â¬â¢t know what to do with people. First I was a tiny little kid and I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t have friends, and then I was a chubby teenager and I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t have friends. It was just this sensation that I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t know how to connect.Ã¢â¬Â
She likes not being pretty:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅMeeting actresses who such a big part of their job is about what they look like, I feel so lucky to be freed from that prison. I ate cake for breakfast on the day of the Emmys, I ate cake for dinner, my workout didnÃ¢â¬â¢t require Spanx, and I still feel like I looked better than people expected me to. It was amazing. I could feel the envy of every woman in the Sunset Tower. I think we can all agree with the idea that beautiful girls that get all the boys get written about. They usually donÃ¢â¬â¢t write.Ã¢â¬Â
I can appreciate her “not being pretty”, but she needs to grow her hair back out. She looks like a boy. You know I’m right.
Oh and the tooth paste picture is grossing me out.
