Details have come out about what’s being described as an “inappropriate” encounter that “Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham experienced involving a male TV producer and director. Variety reports that “Girls” co-showrunner Jenni Konner wrote about the incident in the newsletter that she and Dunham put out.
“Konner detailed the incident in Tuesday’s edition of their Lenny Letter newsletter, writing that Dunham was ‘cornered,’ forced to look at a lewd photo, and asked to convince a fellow actress to agree to on-screen nudity, implying that Dunham was famous for her nude scenes. He then allegedly critiqued the bodies of the actresses on his show,” Variety reports.
Konner writes in the newsletter: “The director asked Lena to have dinner alone the following night with an actress on the show he works on. Not because he thought they should meet, but because he wanted Lena to persuade the actress to ‘show her tits, or at least some vag’ on TV. Surely Lena could make a compelling argument. After all, he continued, ‘You would show anything. Even your a–hole.’”
