Lena Dunham is threatening to quit acting. But is it really a threat if it’s what everyone in the world wants? In a recent interview for Glamour magazine, Dunham talked about how she is “OVER talking about her body”, which I suppose means she might actually stop bringing it up constantly in conversation and interviews. Dunham has been widely criticized, not only because her naked body looks like a tube of toothpaste pressurized at airplane altitudes, but also because she’s just a second-rate actress.
“I don’t know if I’m going to want to act anymore. I’m always relieved on the days I don’t have to. I’d rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts.”
It must be tough being the woman having the parts considering you’re the woman writing and assigning the parts. At some point, even the most self-absorbed feminist needs to fly the banner of being out to help other women. They won’t let you in the front door of the Angry Vagina Club if you don’t spout such lines. But there’s no chance in hell Lena removes herself from in front of the camera. That and haikus about abortions are what keeps her going. Well, that and 4,000 kcals per day.
