Lena Dunham on Showing Skin


– YOU’RE SO CRAZY TALENTED. I’M JUST A HUGE FAN, SO– – YOU’RE A HUGE FORMATIVE
INFLUENCE ON ME, AND IT’S VERY MEANINGFUL
TO ME. – THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU BEING NAKED
ON TELEVISION. [laughter] BEFORE YOU CAME OUT HERE, MARY, MY EXECUTIVE
PRODUCER, SAID, “WHEN’S THE LAST TIME
YOU WERE NAKED ON TELEVISION?” AND I WAS TRYING TO THINK,
I THOUGHT, “OH, NEVER.” – [laughs] – AND, LIKE, IT’S JUST– IT REALLY IS COMFORTABLE
FOR YOU, RIGHT? – IT’S NOT SOMETHING
THAT HAPPENS TO EVERYBODY IN THEIR LIFE. IT’S NOT LIKE DEATH
AND TAXES. IT ONLY HAPPENS
TO A SELECT FEW. – RIGHT.
– AND MOST OF THEM– – YOU REALLY DON’T EVER–
DO YOU EVER– DO YOU HAVE MOMENTS
OF GOING, “OH, MY GOD,
I’M NAKED”? – YOU KNOW,
IT’S SO WEIRD. I FEEL AS THOUGH,
FOR SOME REASON, THAT’S JUST NOT
MY PARTICULAR ZONE OF TERROR. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS
I WOULD BE SO AFRAID TO DO, LIKE–YOU KNOW,
LIKE HIKE MOUNT KILIMANJARO OR, YOU KNOW,
GO TO A CROSSFIT GYM OR… – THOSE ARE–
– TALK TO CHARLIE SHEEN. I DON’T KNOW. THERE’S A LOT OF STUFF
THAT WOULD BE STRESSFUL, BUT FOR SOME REASON,
THIS ISN’T– THIS ISN’T MY AREA
OF FEAR. AND SO I FEEL LIKE
I’M ALWAYS GETTING ALL THESE PROPS
FOR BEING BRAVE, AND I’M LIKE,
“I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING BRAVE. I FEEL TOTALLY COOL
ABOUT BEING NAKED.” – RIGHT.
WELL, THAT’S GREAT. [cheers and applause] – THANK YOU.
– BECAUSE– AND THAT IS A DEFINITION,
OBVIOUSLY, OF COURAGE, AND BRAVERY IS DOING IN SPITE
OF THE FACT THAT YOU’RE FEARFUL OF IT,
AND IF YOU’RE NOT FEARFUL– BUT GOOD FOR YOU
FOR NOT BEING– BUT YOU’RE SCARED–
IT APPEARS TO BE YOU’RE SCARED OF DRIVING,
‘CAUSE YOU– DO YOU HAVE A LICENSE? – NO.
– OKAY. – I’M REALLY, REALLY SCARED
OF DRIVING. – YEAH, YOU LIVE IN NEW YORK,
BUT YOU DID LIVE IN L.A. – BORN AND RAISED IN NEW YORK, MOVED TO L.A. FOR SIX MONTHS
AT ONE POINT, AND ALL OF MY FRIENDS–
JENNY, MY BEST FRIEND, SHE SAID TO ME,
“YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO DRIVE.” SHE WAS LIKE,
“YOU CAN’T BE THE PERSON”– THIS WAS PRE-UBER, SO I WAS BASICALLY, LIKE,
STANDING BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WITH A THUMB OUT. LIKE, IT WAS– I MEAN, I WAS MISTAKEN
FOR A PROSTITUTE TWICE. – YEAH.
– SO– SO I FELT LIKE I NEEDED
TO LEARN TO DRIVE, AND I GOT THIS TEACHER
CALLED LEO, AND WE STUDIED TOGETHER
FOR SIX MONTHS. AND IT WAS KIND OF HARROWING
BECAUSE HE WOULD PICK ME UP. WE WOULD DRIVE
FOR A WHILE, AND THEN WE WOULD PICK UP
A DRIVER’S ED. STUDENT WHO WOULD TAKE THE WHEEL
AND DRIVE ME HOME. SO NOT ONLY WAS THERE
THE TERRIFYING HOUR IN WHICH I WAS DRIVING, THERE WAS THE 45 MINUTES
IN WHICH A STUDENT– A DRIVING STUDENT
EVEN WORSE THAN ME WAS DRIVING ME
BACK TO MY DESTINATION. – UH-HUH, HOW LONG
DID THIS GO ON FOR? – SIX MONTHS.
– OKAY. THAT’S TOO LONG
TO TAKE LESSONS. [laughter] – AND HE KEPT SAYING, “I THINK IT’S TIME FOR YOU
TO TAKE THE TEST,” AND I GO, “NO, I THINK
WE NEED ANOTHER WEEK. “I THINK WE NEED TO WORK ON OUR,
YOU KNOW, PARALLEL PARKING. I THINK MY K TURN’S
A LITTLE OFF,” AND FINALLY HE WAS LIKE,
“WE ARE TAKING THE TEST.” HE SCHEDULED IT.
WE WENT. MY–IT WAS, LIKE,
90 DEGREES OUT, AND THE WOMAN
WHO WAS ADMINISTERING THE TEST WAS WEARING A PARKA
AND, LIKE, EAR MUFFS, AND I KNEW
THAT I WAS JUST DONE FOR. I KNEW THERE WAS NO WAY
THAT THAT PERSON WHO HAD SUCH AN UNCLEAR SENSE
OF JUST, LIKE, THE CLIMATE WAS GONNA MAKE
A SMART CHOICE, AND I FAILED. – RIGHT.
WELL, SO– AND YOU DON’T NEED THAT ANYMORE,
BECAUSE NOW THERE IS UBER. NOW THERE ARE DRIVERS, AND YOU’RE A BIG, BIG STAR,
SO PEOPLE– YOU’RE DRIVEN OR CARRIED
EVERYWHERE, RIGHT? – CARRIED MORE,
BUT NO. I FEEL LIKE THIS
ABOUT DRIVING. I FEEL LIKE NOT EVERYONE
IS SUPPOSED TO BE A MOTHER, AND NOT EVERYONE
IS SUPPOSED TO DRIVE. – I AGREE WITH YOU, AND I WISH PEOPLE
WOULD KNOW THAT. – AND THERE’S
SOME SOCIETAL PRESSURE. I MEAN, IT DOESN’T MAKE
TOTAL SENSE. I KNOW FROM THE BOTTOM
OF MY SOUL THAT IF I WERE
TO HAVE A LICENSE, I WOULD HURT SOMEBODY. – WELL, GOOD
THAT YOU KNOW THAT AND GOOD
THAT WE KNOW THAT. – THANK YOU. SO IF YOU EVER SEE ME
DRIVING ALONG, IF SOMETHING’S CHANGED AND I’M JUST, LIKE, YOU KNOW,
DRIVING DOWN LA CIENEGA WITH A THUMBS UP,
STOP ME. – RIGHT, RIGHT.
– YEAH. – I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU’D BE
DRIVING WITH A THUMBS UP, BUT– LIKE, “I’M IN IT.
I’M IN THE CAR DRIVING.” SO BOTH OF THOSE THINGS
WOULD WRONG.

  1. The only reason she got mistaken for a prostitute twice, is that she looks like one. Spanky, wore out and nothing you'd want to keep.

  2. She is a born slut. I repent buying her book and spending 13 euros on that. She is just so desperate for sex and yes I can very well understand why she has no fear of being naked. Because she pleased men even 10 years old to her, to fuck her. She pleaded to every guy to fuck her. Just a fucking bitch she is. I hate her like anything.

  3. Lena Dunham is a stinking piece of horse shit……she used to sexually abuse her BABY SISTER…..and she openly boasts about it. She has shown no remorse at all. What kind of country gives respect to a confessed baby raper? Where were the parents when their baby daughter was being molested by their obviously deeply sick older child? Did they know? And if they knew, why haven't they been arrested for failing to protect the younger daughter? Lena, you are a VILE PIECE OF TRASH. I just hope that your poor little sister finds some healing and peace.

  4. Lena Dunham. the new spokesman (spokeswoman you sexist pig) of the Left. here's to 20 more years of Republican rule! Keep it up lefties

  5. Personality: Terrible.
    Acting: Terrible.
    Writing: Terrible.
    On-screen Presence: Terrible.
    Opinions: Terrible.
    Hair: Terrible.
    Tattoo: Terrible.
    Teeth: Terrible.
    Other than that, she's lovely.

  6. lena getting naked.. ah no thank you. did the tv network actually let her do that? are they desperate? coz no man would ever have a boner looking at that womans body. even her face is an abomination good lord not everybody is gonna lower his/her standard because you decided not to take care of yourself you ugly fat rapist.

  7. Wow just wow. SO women ugh gross ha the audacity of women wanting to be seen beyond whether or not you want to fuck them. how dare they make YOU feel guilty for not finding worth in them beyond their meeting YOUR standards of what women are meant to be. How dare they care that all people be treated equally by drawing attention to specific inequalities that concern more than half of the human race.
    if your manhood is based upon feeling superior to the opposite sex revelling in your ignorance and patriarchal privilege then your manhood is based upon a lie that is not what being a human is about, that is not manly.

    if men were being beaten and murdered every weak by women, were castrated in honour killings because they were raped, were being raped and married off as children to an adult and a stranger BY WOMEN and on top of that were being told that their pay is lower than that of a woman not because they had the audacity to procreate and continue the human race or worse they had the audacity not to be the sex that honours their own, even though there are those equally often more qualified than said opposite sex all because they relate to them better and they simply dont care. if this was happening to men instead of women do you think men would be considering every woman a threat every woman an enemy every woman cruel and immoral. Do you think they would at the very least say hey we are going to create a group that stands up against those who disrespect and aim to disenfranchise and abuse us. All the while people men and women say that they have no right to do that no right to care about their own civil rights, their human rights.

    Most women face sexism every month, some every day of their lives. While men fear being laughed at by women, women fear being physically assaulted or killed. All the while we do not walk around as victims because we are not, even when we are made to feel like one at the hand of some man. We also dont spend our days considering men as the enemy or even a threat we certainly dont hate them because they are fat or chubby or confident or successful or happy. Yet we still have to put up with this shit and you finding some fucking reason to hate us, as if we are out to get you just because we will not accept it and we call that resistance Feminism. Sometime, when you were younger someone told you a cruel lie, that you get to feel good about yourself because your better than women. The idea that their sex does not make them inferior to you terrifies you, because then you would feel as if you were giving up that power what had given you self worth. Im sorry for you all i really am because you are missing out on so much of yourself and so much of other people, men and women alike.

  8. On the Lena Dunham front As i wrote in other comments, the perverse prurient culture that would proclaim that a seven year old, curious about her three year old sisters vagina with pebbles in it, makes her a pedophile is the only thing sickening here. To think such a thing just so you have a reason to dislike her other than the threat she poses to your ideas of womanhood, is abhorrent. Her being a chubby, confident, self loving, flawed, talented actress, writer, producer and television series creator with a platform to speak social justice is just too much for you all to handle. Look im not on board with the hillary support but i dont hear people giving all the other big celebs who supported her, shit for that. i could say alot more but you need therapy to deal with your misogyny and it can not be achieved in a youtube comment. i hope you all find the beauty in yourself and in women beyond your ignorance and fear. good luck to you.

  9. she's a huge inspiration 🙂 whatever size you are you should be happy an comfortable being in your own skin 🙂

  10. LENA should be deported from America period. She is an insane lunatic calling for the extinction of Caucasian males in OTHER VIDEOS. And we need not say anything more about the host Ellen who can't even figure out her own sexuality so thank GOD she won't reproduce. You straight, married with children PEOPLE of America need to get off your ASSES and actually insist that these freaks get the hell out of your country AND, if any of you think this is Hitler like guess what … not too many decades ago these 2 FREAKS would never been permitted Air time in fact, they'd be sent to a shrink, and sometimes an insane asylum. Also, if any of you wish to freak out on me for Telling The Truth, then again guess what? YOU WILL BE FURTHER FREAKING OUT ON ALL GENERATIONS THAT ARE DECEASED BECAUSE THEY WOULD AGREE WITH ME ! See how Liberated diseased minds have us divided? America and ALL western nations can no longer have peoples living in one nation with such different values! War will come soon AND, you can BLAME the UNIVERSITIES (Ie. Women Studies and leftist PROFS) and Socialist even Communist MASS MEDIA and of course, POLITICIANS who use private sector taxes in raping them PLUS Families since WW1 when it began!

  11. When they put on the pic of her and Adam Driver from Girls, I thought, Ellen has her but not Adam?? Like why not get Adam on the show? He's a really talented actor

  12. Can someone explain to me why everyone hates her?Like where did she say she molested her sister, i don't understand.

  13. But she thinks it's ok to "Finger" her little sister! What a F*cking Freak! Ellen is probably into little girls also! F*cking pervert F*cks!

  14. conversation between to totally complete idiots. Goes to show the mental intelligence of the progressive liberals

  15. I️ would rather swim in a vat of human shit than ever see Lena Dunham naked. Seriously this isn’t an exaggeration, find me out in a field and rather looking at a picture of her naked I️ will skinny dip in a tub of the nastiest human waste anyone can find. I️ find this woman disgusting to all 6 senses. I️ say 6 because I️ feel like she will haunt me in the after life.

  16. This is one nasty bitch. She’s horrendous WITH her clothes on. Why anyone would want to see that corpulent pig naked is beyond me. Yuck.

  17. I feel the same way. Driving is so stressful for me, I‘m always afraid to hit sth. or somebody..I paid over 2000€ (getting a driving license in Germany is so expensive) for nothing -.-

  18. Well she has to force her nudity upon unsuspecting people because normally they would never ask for that lump of chewed up bubblegum she calls a body.

  19. Hey Lena, you’re a frumpy fat dog. It would take a lot of Jack to get me onboard, and then maybe. You’re just another Hollywood train wreck, nothing more. Blow me

  20. Birds of the same feathers " An " Ageing" problem, increasing by the day vs a "Sodomic Problem" .
    "Problem Glorifications "
