'Girls' Producers, Star Lena Dunham Furious About Nudity Question

The producers and star of the HBO series "Girls" slammed a journalist for asking about the large amount of nudity on the show.

The question came from The Wrap's Tim Molloy on Thursday during the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

“I don’t get the purpose of all of the nudity on the show, by you particularly, and I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you go," said Molloy. "Nobody complains about the nudity on 'Game of Thrones,' but I get why they are doing it. They are doing it to be salacious and, you know, titillate people. And your character is often naked just at random times for no reason."

'Girls' star Lena Dunham fired back, "It’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive, I think, and I totally get it. If you are not into me, that’s your problem, and you are going to have to work that out with professionals."

According to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Judd Apatow also slammed Molloy, "That was a very clumsily stated question that’s offensive on it’s face, and you should read it and discuss it with other people how you did that. It’s very offensive.”

Apatow then baited Molloy, asking him if he had a girlfriend.

“Let’s see how she likes you when you quote that with your question and just write the whole question... and tell me how it goes tonight,” asked Apatow.

Executive producer Jenni Konner joined in on the attack against Molloy.

“I literally was spacing out because I’m in such a rage spiral about that guy,” said Konner. “I was just looking at him looking at him and going into this rage [over] this idea that you would talk to a woman like that and accuse a woman of showing her body too much. The idea it just makes me sort of sick.”
