Howard Stern is not one to keep his mouth shut when there’s something he wants to say, and the latest victim of his verbal rants is ‘Girls’ creator and star Lena Dunham.
Stern, during his Monday morning broadcast, said, “It’s a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape. She seems—it’s like—I don’t want to see that.”
He also added, “I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she’s such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on. My opinion, if I was a producer on that, I’d say: ‘Honey, you’re a little too close to the project. You need to allow the other characters to breathe a little and let us get invested in them.” Although he adds that he’s not against shows like Sex and the City, and other female oriented shows, he cannot stand to watch ‘Girls’ because of Lena Dunham.
But, he eventually offers her a back-handed compliment by saying, “Good for her. It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything going.” Ouch! It seems as if Stern is being overly harsh about a show that strives to show the reality of New York, instead of a Hollywood version of the story.
