Girls seem to love Lena Dunham because she’s smart and fearless, the anti-sex symbol for a new generation of female comedians thanks to her hit HBO show Girls. Meanwhile, most guys are pretty torn over her, because they either can’t figure out why she’s taking her clothes off or they’re threatened by her empowering success. At the very least, she has a lot on her mind and she makes for some good quotes.
Dunham was the subject of Playboy’s latest batch of 20 questions, and my first thought upon reading the feature was, “Good God, Jessica Burciaga is like young, hot Jennifer Lopez all over again.” But then Dunham said some stuff about Victoria’s Secret Angels and that got my attention back.
Playboy: If you woke up tomorrow in the body of a Victoria’s Secret model, what would you do for the rest of the day?
Dunham: I’d be really disoriented and wonder what had happened in the night. Which enemy had dragged me to the doctor? I don’t think I’d like it very much. There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with that I don’t have to deal with now. I don’t want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack. Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier. The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you. It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way and be in public. That said, I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants. Then I’d call a doctor and see if she could return me to my former situation. (Playboy, NSFW site)
Sorry, but I’m willing to bet that Candice Swanepoel has never muttered the phrase, “Gosh, it’s just so hard being a beautiful woman.” Girl power’s cool and all, but let’s at least be realistic.
