The very talented musician Alex Cameron and also boyfriend of Jemima was interviewed by Rolling Stone (Australia) magazine and he mentions Jemima, see quotes below.
It’s been two years since Cameron set foot on Australian soil, where he started with esteemed electronica trio Seekae (who are still active). The closest thing he has to a home base these days is New York, the setting for his newfound romance with Girls actor Jemima Kirke.
“If we have five days off, we go to New York. We spend a lot of money on flights. Me and Roy both [have] romantic engagements in New York, and that’s a beautiful thing to have if you’re a touring musician, and you have a partner that tolerates that — or they have their own shit going on so they actually require you to be absent.”
Kirke directs and stars in the video for Cameron’s duet with Angel Olsen, “Stranger’s Kiss”, the shoot for which was captured by paparazzi. “A friend sent that through to me,” he marvels. “Jesus Christ, isn’t that fucking ridiculous?”
“She’s had a big impact on the visual direction of the record,” Cameron adds of Kirke.
“We rely heavily on the input of our vastly more intelligent partners. Women have been a huge impact on what we do as musicians and writers. We don’t have much money, we rely on people seeing that they can get something out of us in terms of creativity. I do feel like I’m in a decent place emotionally,” he concludes. “I feel very attached to love, and work.”
The clip seems to be from June 25 but it’s a fun interview with our Jemima! 🙂
An interview by Gold Derby from two days ago (May 15) and Jemima talks about the end of ‘Girls,’ her favorite moments from the series and Lena Dunham. She chats about ‘free falling’ on the first day six years ago and being ‘overwhelmed’ on the final day. Her last scene was the penultimate episode of the series and featured Kirke’s character Jessa at a party with the other girls (Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet, Allison Williams).
Jemima was interviewed by W Magazine about her plans after Girls ending and about her work as an artist. They also took some lovely photos of Jemima herself as well as her studio in Brooklyn. View them here!
“I’ll sit here so I don’t get in trouble for smoking,” Jemima Kirke said on a recent morning, adjusting her paint-streaked apron so she could plop down onto a cushion by the window in her studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn. She lit an American Spirit, turned down the opera music a notch, and, having granted me entry by pushing a gigantic portrait of Allison Williams in her wedding dress away from the door, suggested I take an armchair where a wall used to stand before she and her studio-mate moved in.

New interview with Jemima on this podcast, be sure to listen to it!
Actress and artist Jemima Kirke came on the podcast. Yes, those are thrilling words to write. This is not only exciting because she’s luminous, talented and plays Jessa on freaking Girls but also because she has a history with substances that you don’t hear many people share about. After a wild youth, which included multi-day benders and bouts of depression, Kirke showed up at her mom’s in early 20s, saying she was ready for rehab. She went from one treatment center to the next, finding enough fault with the program there for her to be kicked out (but not before meeting the man she eventually married, who happens to now own a sober living).
After years of staying sober and doing the 12-step thing, Kirke began to question whether the one-size-fits-all philosophy about addiction applied to her. And so she had a drink. Contrary to what she’d been told, nothing bad happened. That was a few years ago and in that time, she’s watched her career rise to superstardom and embraced motherhood (in addition to the two kids she has with her husband, she is also the step-mother to his kids from a previous marriage). In this episode, we talk about self-hatred, rehabs just out to take your money and if meeting your future spouse in treatment is “trauma bonding,” among other topics.
