Interview by StyleLikeU – January 17, 2017

Jemima Kirke Discusses The ‘Guilt’ She Felt At Becoming A Young Mother At 25

Women are expected to stay on-script.

In the early 1900s, gaslighting was a common way of forcing women to believe their feelings were invalid.

As recently as the 1950s, women were regularly given electro-shock therapy to combat for women who appeared to be “neurotic” after giving birth.

It wasn’t until celebrities like Brooke Shields and Lisa Rinna began sharing their stories of postpartum depression that it became socially acceptable to have it at all.

But even so, women have long been expected to feel the magical and instant bond with their newborn babies. Despite celebrities who have come forward, you don’t often hear new mothers complaining without adding, “but it’s the most meaningful thing I’ve ever done” at the end of the sentence.

This is why Jemima Kirke’s comments on motherhood are so important.

The “Girls” star sat down with the “What’s underneath?” project by Style Like U and got candid about being a young mother.

The “What’s underneath?” project has featured many powerful women, including CEOs, artists, actresses and musicians, and asks women on camera a series of questions, as they slowly remove their clothing piece by piece.

Kirke is gearing up for the premiere of the final season of “Girls,” airing on February 12. The 31-year-old also recently made headlines for announcing her split from her husband of seven years, Michael Mosberg.

The couple share two children together, Memphis and Rafella, who she gave birth to when she was just 25 years old.

The beginning of the interview breezes over light questions about “Girls” and common misconceptions people have of Kirke.

But it’s not until the interviewer asks about some of her personal insecurities that we see a shift in Kirke’s tone.

“I’m very insecure in my capabilities in parenting.”

She continues, “everyone says they’re not ready to have a baby, but I was not ready to have a baby. I really was not thinking about what I was doing, and I was doing it almost in the same way I’d get a haircut or a tattoo.”

“Everyone was like, oh Jemima’s fine because she’s married now and she’s having a baby.”

Jemima reveals she was fighting a severe inner struggle while she was about to become a mother, yet acknowledged that no one would have guessed it because she was doing everything a woman was “supposed” to be doing.

“The guilt hit me the second she came out of me, that I was her mother. I realized, oh my god, what did I just do? I just released a suffering person.”

Talking about motherhood is the only part of the video Jemima breaks down in. It’s clear the stresses and burdens (yes I’m going to use the word burden), of being a young mother can be complicated for anyone.

Even someone who appears to truly “have it all.”

Lena Dunham Reveals Jemima Kirke Wanted to Quit ‘Girls’

HBO’s Girls returns to television for its finale in February, but in a new interview with Glamour, show creator and actress Lena Dunham reveals that one of the show’s titular women, Jemima Kirke (who plays free-spirited Jessa), actually wanted to bid the series farewell back when filming Season 2.

While speaking to the magazine, Kirke shared that the second season of the hit show, which aired in 2013, was “kind of traumatic” for her, E! News reports.

Dunham then reminded the actress that “that was the season where you said I had to get out of your dressing room or you were gonna punch me,” adding, “I think it’s time for us to disclose to the world that, like, three days before season two, Jemima tried to quit.”

“My sense of who I was and what I wanted was really thin,” Kirke admitted, laughing. “I really wasn’t sure what the f— I was doing.”

Meanwhile, Dunham, who recalled traveling in a cab when Kirke called to give her the news, continued, “She was like, ‘I have to tell you something. It’s not a big deal. I don’t want you to freak out. I want to quit the show.’”

Suffice to say, Kirke thankfully stayed on.

Jemima looking cute as usual on set of her new movie on November 8, 2016 and it’s so fun to have a new project to look forward to!

Jemima Kirke was spotted rocking neon pink hair while arriving on the set of her film Untogether on Monday in Los Angeles.

The 31-year-old, who plays Andrea in the drama, stepped out in a white T-shirt and cropped jeans, opting to go bra-less.

The makeup free actress had her bold locks in rollers as she grabbed a coffee with her co-star Jamie Dornan in between takes.

You Have To See Jemima Kirke’s Post-Girls Makeover

There’s yet another reason to get a lob this fall — and her name is Jemima Kirke, star of HBO’s Girls. Kirke just debuted the sleek, shorter chop in an Instagram post by co-star Allison Williams, and the caption, “When cool kids grow up, they just become cooler kids,” demonstrates exactly what we’re all thinking: Her hair is the raddest. Just check out the close-up in this snap by co-star Lena Dunham (that we all wish we were in):

In the show, Kirke plays Jessa, who has consistently rocked long, flowing locks. So the change-up is a major departure for the character — but not for the actress. The cut is just one in a long line of badass moves from Kirke. Earlier this summer, she teamed up with Dunham in an untouched lingerie campaign for The Lonely Girls Project and the last time she cut her hair, she did it totally topless.

Williams was right: We can’t think of anyone cooler.
