Lena Dunham defended the constant onslaught of nudity on her hit show “Girls.”
After it was announced that “Girls” has been renewed or a fourth season at the Television Critics Association panel Thursday night in Pasadena, Calif., Dunham and the show’s producer, Judd Apatow, got into a little bit of a tiff with a reporter after he said he didn’t “get” all of the nudity, the Los Angeles Times reports.
“I don’t get the purpose of all of the nudity on the show, by [Dunham] particularly,” the reporter said to the “Girls” panel. “And I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you go, ‘Nobody complains about the nudity on “Game of Thrones,”‘ but I get why they are doing it. They are doing it to be salacious and, you know, titillate people. And your character is often naked just at random times for no reason.”
Dunham replied, “It’s because it’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive, I think, and I totally get it. If you are not into me, that’s your problem…”
According to the Times, Apatow then interrupted, “Do you have a girlfriend? Does she like you?…Let’s see how she likes you when you quote that with your question, and just write the whole question as you stated it.”
