TCA: ‘Girls’ Countenances No Questions About Lena Dunham Nudity

“I don’t get the purpose of all the nudity – particularly by you,” some guy said to Lena Dunham at the start of the Q&A for her HBO comedy series Girls. It went downhill from there. The Random Guy Who Covers TV said he gets the point of all the nudity on HBO’s Game of Thrones, explaining it’s an attempt to “be salacious and titillate people.”

But Dunham’s nudity baffles him. “It’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive,” she said. “I totally get it if you’re not into me. That’s your problem.”

Exec producer Judd Apatow jumped in with a question addressed to Random Guy: “Do you have a girlfriend? Does she like you?” he sneered, as though it was a given nobody could. Apatow suggested the guy tell his girlfriend exactly how he’d asked the question at the Girls Q&A and “let me know how it goes tonight.” Apatow apparently lives in that alternate universe in which everyone loves Girls.

Another critic asked Dunham if she likes the characters she’s written on the show. We assumed he was talking about the characters Dunham has created for Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, and Zosia Mamet. “Yeah, I love them. I love writing them,” she responded. Apatow, having apparently shot his wad with Random Nudity Question Guy, did not have any snappy comeback to add.
