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: “I cannot deny it, and I cannot get over it. And they actually send them in my size. No one’s being an asshole and sending them to me in a 4. They’re sending me clothes, they fit, and what people should know is that I always wear them. Somehow even if I wouldn’t have bought it, the fact that it was free and my grandma’s depression-era mentality make me think it is the most beautiful thing I ever owned, and I wear it for several days straight.”

She’s friends with Taylor Swift: “We have D.M.’ed. I’m a really big fan. She started following me, and here’s how you find out Taylor Swift is following you. You start hearing from all the insane Taylor Swift fans that are like ‘If Taylor Swift loves you I love you.’ So I sent her a message. I was like, ‘I just want to let you know that your albums have gotten me through a lot of very hard times.’ When I tweeted that her new album was amazing, every one of my Twitter followers was like, ‘I so hope that you’re joking.’ But I have no interest in liking anything ironically. If I wanted to be ironic, I’d grow a mustache.”

She’s not much for travel: “I hated India. I know you’re not allowed to hate India. But I did. I wasn’t happy. And I felt crazy. I’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.”

Growing up rich was still isolating: “It’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 Ann’s or Dalton, because there aren’t kids being shoved into lockers in the same way, you’re expected not to have that isolating adolescence. But from kindergarten onward, I was like, I don’t know what to do with people. First I was a tiny little kid and I didn’t have friends, and then I was a chubby teenager and I didn’t have friends. It was just this sensation that I didn’t know how to connect.”

She likes not being pretty: “Meeting 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 didn’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 don’t write.”

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.

The haircut actually looks better on her. It frames her face. She didn’t quite know how to style her longer hair.

I love her show, but why the need to generalize about what “pretty” girls do or don’t do. Pretty girls don’t write? Is she implying intellectual girls cannot also be pretty?

I do like her show, but I thought she was a feminist? And she’s letting that sick pervert take her pictures and talking shit about pretty girls… Her insecurities are showing and I’m starting to dislike her.

I do like the show Girls, but Lena, eh, it’s a bit much. I am thin because my parents are thin. I am attractive because again, genetics. I worked hard in school and in my career, and while I haven’t published a novel, I have had articles published. Lena talks about how happy she is not being pretty or having to worry about her weight and getting to write a book and etc. Did she ever think some of us are happy being slim and good looking?

Wow, that tongue! Oh the possibilities…
Oh, and Lena, you are pretty. Just look at that last picture in the chair. Great smile!
