We chatted to the bestselling writer, creator, actress and director of TV show ‘Girls’. As always, she was brilliantly candid. Here’s a few great things we learnt about her:
She loves British TV.
‘I almost cried when I met the cast of “Call the Midwife”.’
Seriously, she’s a fan of Bake Off.
‘London girls are so chic and smart and special! A few standouts are Polly Stenham, Emma Gannon, Felicity Jones, Gemma Cairny, Ruby Tandoh and my make-up artist Sarah Reygate.’
She likes to nap.
‘I’m a big proponent of napping your way through problematic portions of your life.’
She wishes she’d dated more.
‘I think something I feel embarrassed about in my twenties is that I didn’t do enough real dates. I feel like all I ever did was just go over to people’s houses and throw up. I just didn’t live that dream.’
She’s really into Lil Jon.
‘In his new song, “Bend Ova”, I thought the lyrics were “Bend over and let me see the devil”, and I was like: he IS a poet! But he was like: “Those are not the lyrics.” Though I think what I came up with is better and sexier.’
