“I absolutely love Lena Dunham. I don’t know her personally, but I’m completely obsessed with the show. I cannot believe what she has accomplished at 26. I think she is like our new Woody Allen. That’s how highly I think of her. I have to say I was not the least bit surprised by the backlash that she has encountered. Because any time you’re a woman who dares to be unconventional, outspoken, sexual – I mean, she’s taking her shirt off every week, God bless her – of course people are gonna bitch about it. People cannot process the fact that a woman could be sexual and funny and brilliant and sensitive and flawed and beautiful and all of those things.” – Juno and Young Adult screenwriter Diablo Cody, to HuffPost Women, on her love for the creator and star of HBO’s Girls.
