The producers of the TV show ‘Girls’, Jenni Konner and Judd Apatow, defended Lena Dunham after she has been criticized for her nudity in the series.
On Thursday at the Television Critics Association press conference, a reporter directly asked Dunham about the frequent nude scenes in the HBO series. Dunham is the creator, writer, and producer, and one of the lead actresses of the series.
The reporter asked Dunham about the unnecessary nudity on the show. He said that he could not find any reason behind why Dunham gets naked frequently on ‘Girls’. He compared the show with another nudity-stricken series ‘Game of Thrones’ and said that the nudity in the latter one is legitimate because they do so to stimulate the viewers while in ‘Girls’, Lena does so for no apparent reason. Dunham replied by saying that she believes in realistic expression of being alive and she is perfectly aware of why she does it. She also added that it is totally the reporter’s personal problem if he does not understand the reason.
After Dunham, Apatow charged the reporter rudely for his question. He even vented his frustration on Twitter by saying that this type of questions pop up despite the show has been being aired for more than three years. Konnor also showed his disappointment at the reporter.
