“The third season of “Girls” premiered Sunday night on HBO, but true to form, the show was making waves before its newest episode even debuted.
Last week at a Television Critics Assn. panel, Tim Molloy, a reporter from the Wrap, asked creator and star Lena Dunham about the pervasive nudity on the show. “I don’t get the purpose of all the nudity on the show — by [Dunham] in particular,” Molloy said. “I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you say no one complains about the nudity on ‘Game of Thrones,’ but I get why they’re doing it. They’re doing it to be salacious. To titillate people. And your character is often naked at random times for no reason.”
Dunham quickly pounced on the question. “[It’s] a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive,” she shot back. “But I totally get it. If you’re not into me, that’s your problem and you’re going to have to work that out with professionals.”
However, maybe the reason that Dunham is so often naked on the show is because she continues to get asked questions like these.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.
