“I love you so fucking much”
30 minutes of Charlie Rose and Lena Dunham?
How did I miss this for four months?
The actress adds that had Abbott continued in the role of Charlie, she suspects Marnie’s Season 3 arc would have spanned from the couple’s reunification — Season 2 ended with Marnie professing her desire to have Charlie’s “little brown babies” and to eventually watch him die — to the inevitable “dissolution of their relationship.” Now, though, “it’s almost as if we skipped her third season and have gone on to single Marnie,” Williams adds. The split “means that Marnie is now piecing herself back together.”
GIRLS season 3 ON SET // April 25, 2013
Lena Dunham plants a kiss on Adam Driver as they film a date scene for the third season of HBO’s Girls on Thursday night (April 25) in New York City.
The title of Lena Dunham’s HBO show blasts out in bold letters — GIRLS — filling the screen to its edges. Like Lena herself, there’s nothing coy about it. She reclaims the often pejorative “girls” as she does countless other ideas. Her character, Hannah, says she has covered herself in tattoos to gain authority, or authorship, over her body. Lena bares that tattooed body throughout the series, making it clear that it is hers to share.
Lena’s power lies largely in her self-awareness and wit. Like all great comics, she has a joke ready to deflect any jeer. Hannah’s pathetic declaration that she could at least be “a voice of a generation” invites and thwarts many a poisoned arrow. Lena’s true power, though, lies in her transparency. She is unflinchingly, unnervingly honest. She exposes, beneath all that bare skin, a multitude of shortcomings: acute self-involvement, obsessive-compulsive behavior, overeating, oversharing. Hannah is as vivid and raw a portrait as we have seen — nails bitten to the nub — and despite her glaring faults, we ravenously embrace her. Lena’s unique lack of vanity or shame allows us to consider that we may also be able to accept and express ourselves fully. This is not only impressive, it’s important. Because it turns out that girls don’t just want to have fun. They also want to be known for who they really are.
You are from New York, therefore you are just naturally interesting, okay? It is not up to you to fill all the pauses. You are not in danger of mortifying yourself. The worst stuff that you say sounds better than the best stuff that some other people say.
