HBO Girls Today Show Interview

08 January 2013, 16.23 | Posted in Television, celebrity, interviews | 1 comment »

The cast of HBO’s Girls, Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet, was interviewed on the Today Show this morning. The best part of the Q&A might have been the hilarious disconnect between the cast and the interviewer, who describes being frequently “mortified” when watching the show, a reaction the girls don’t exactly connect with. Bonus points to Kirke for her pajama-y outfit. On her own bravery Dunham comments,

“I always think it’s brave to step into the mouth of a lion or — to save a baby but it’s not that brave to get naked if you’re not scared to get naked.”

The interview is part of the promotion leading up to the return of season 2 on January 13th.

HBO Girls: Fashion Not What It Used To Be

GirlsHBO 540x330 HBO Girls: Fashion Not What It Used To Be

It’s interesting that Vogue did a piece covering the look of HBO’s Girls because one thing this show seems to be not about is fashion. Or at least it’s played very differently from the show Girls most frequently compared to, Sex & The City, for which fashion repeatedly was cited as the show’s fifth character.

Indeed, while the writer & star of the series, Lena Dunham, pays the requisite tribute to SATC via a giant poster featured on the studio wall of NYU student, Shonshanna (gosh I love that name), it’s something of a backhanded compliment as she is Girls’ least hip character with fashion choices that tend to be more mainstream mall-ish what with her matching Victoria’s Secret bra & panties, short-sleeved Juicy hoodies and ack, even a Snuggie! In many ways Shoshanna represents the final ripple of that which was spawned S&TC, with the end results not all that pretty much less chic. (And actually I have a theory that Dunham secretly has mixed feelings about the SATC comparisons, would prefer ones made to Seinfeld, and in the ultimate teenage rebellous move accidentally-on-purpose does a lot of stuff that kicks dirt on its main themes.)

tumblr m33okwgoIw1qmm8t3o1 500 More Jemima Kirke aka Jessa Obsessing

I started obsessing over Jessa aka Jemima Kirke of Girls over the weekend, and yep, I still am. Like I’m thisclose to starting a F-yeaJemima Tumblr.  But there’s already this one  dedicated to all the actors on Girls so I’ll leave it be for now (esp since I can barely make GIFs work much less crete one). Since yesterday I collected a few more Kirke images, which are on the next page. Some are from Girls and others are from her first film, Tiny Furniture, and the one with her baby is some thing she did with Coach. Yes, the handbag company. In one she’s even wearing an amazing pair of A Peace Treaty Earrings.

HBO’s ‘Girls’ Jessa Johansson

Spent yesterday afternoon internet obsessing over HBO’s new series Girls (see first episode courtesy of HBO here), especially the character Jessa Johansson (above midde, played by Jemima Kirke), reading everything there is to read, watching all the videos, etc. I like to imagine my 20s self was Jessa, but the truth is more like two parts Jessa , eight parts Hannah Horvath (above left, played by the show’s writer/director Lena Dunham) and an as-of-yet-to-be-determined-parts Marnie Michaels (above right, played by Allison Williams). That was always a fun part of Sex & the City, figuring out who and how much you identify with each character and the things they do that make you love them and even better sort of struggle to like them…just like real people!
