Howard Stern is no stranger to controversy, and made some comments about Girls star/creator Lena Dunham on his Sirius radio show Wednesday that were far from flattering.
“It’s a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape,” said Stern. “I don’t want to see that.”
Stern also called Dunham a “camera hog” and gave her some advice on how to improve her critically acclained HBO series. “I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she’s such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on,” quipped Stern. “My opinion, if I was a producer on that, I’d say: ‘Honey, you’re a little too close to the project. You need to allow the other characters to breathe a little and let us get invested in them…good for her. It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything going.”
Last night, Dunham appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman and claimed to be thrilled with Stern’s comments. “He said, ‘Congrats to her. It’s so hard for little fat chicks to get anything going these days,’” Dunham told Letterman. “It put me in the best mood! I just want to be like, my gravestone says, ‘She was a little fat chick and she got it going.’”
