It’s Goodbye ‘Girls‘ as Lena Dunham, Cast, Execs Overshare in Show Oral History

The definitive backstory of a series that began as “the worst pitch you’ve ever read” (see it yourself!) as the seminal comedy starts its final season and all the major players spill on the (very NSFW) sex scenes, those racism charges and what the “voice of her generation” does next.

Turns out Lena Dunham’s introductory line in that very first episode of Girls — “I’m the voice of my generation … or at least a voice of a generation” — couldn’t have been more on the nose.

Over the past half-decade, Dunham’s millennial dramedy chronicling the lives of four 20-something women in New York has on more than one occasion seized the pop cultural conversation and steered it into areas that sometimes made even HBO uncomfortable. True, it never was an audience magnet — a typical season grossed between 4 million and 5 million weekly viewers — but it made up for that in buzz as it pushed the boundaries of casual nudity, gender identification and sexual mores and ignited controversies over everything from race to rape. With the series coming to an end with 10 final episodes beginning Feb. 12, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys jokes, “Lena Dunham single-handedly created the think piece industry.”

Dunham was all of 23 when she sold Girls to HBO with a page-and-a-half-long pitch that included nary a character nor a plot. Her only calling card? Tiny Furniture, a $50,000 indie film about a young woman who moves back home after college that Dunham wrote, directed and starred in, alongside her real-life friends and family. But the movie, which won the narrative film prize at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival, had some very big fans, including HBO’s then-entertainment president Sue Naegle and producer Judd Apatow.

After Tiny Furniture, Dunham had been pursued by independent studios looking to hook up for her next project. “Everyone was like, ‘There’s a YA novel that you might be good to adapt,’ ” she recalls. HBO in many ways was an unlikely place for the fledgling filmmaker to land. The premium cable channel had been better known for investing in bold-faced names — and for creating content for baby boomers rather than cable-cutting millennials. But Naegle and her then-27-year-old associate Kathleen McCaffrey had a hunch that a voice like Dunham’s could speak to an audience — and perhaps a generation.

Now, with Girls set to conclude, the cast — led by Dunham, 30, along with stars Jemima Kirke, 31 (as free spirit Jessa), Allison Williams, 28 (uptight Marnie), Zosia Mamet, 28 (earnest Shoshanna) and breakout Adam Driver, 33 (elusive Adam) — as well as executive producers Apatow and Jenni Konner, a cadre of executives and others reflect on six seasons that began with what Dunham describes as “the worst pitch you’ve ever read.”

Jemima Kirke Says She Cut Her Hair After a Fight with Now-Estranged Husband: ‘I Was Feeling Self-Destructive’

Just a few days after announcing that she’d be separating from her husband of seven years, Michael Mosberg, Jemima Kirke has revealed that he was the main reason behind her major haircut in late 2015, when she drastically went from hip-length locks to a blunt bob.

“I cut my hair because I felt like my hair was really one of the only things that made me feel pretty,” Kirke explains of the change in an intimate interview with Style Like U. “I felt like my hair was my go-to trick. I really believed for a while that without it I would be boring.”

Kirke continues to explain in the clip that it was also a rough patch in her relationship with Mosberg that led to the chop.

“I was having a terrible moment with my husband in our relationship, and I was extremely hurt by him and extremely angry at him, and so I was feeling self-destructive,” she expresses. “But for whatever reason I didn’t do anything self-destructive really, I just cut my hair.”

A few weeks after their fight, she decided to lose even more length, and this time she let her husband cut it.

“A couple weeks later, I said I wanted to go shorter and he said ‘I’ll do it’ and he cut it and it was really nice,” she shares. “It was kind of romantic. It’s nice to have someone you love cut your hair.”

The star told New York Magazine in 2014 that her long hair was something Mosberg celebrated with his tattoos. “He has lots [of tattoos] that are tributes to me. When he gets any girls tattooed on him, he’s always like, ‘Can you make their butt bigger, and can you make the hair long?’ ”
