Lena Dunham Naked and Nude Scenes On HBO Show Girls:
Lena Dunham Naked and HBO Nude Scenes – As the hit HBO series Girls enters its third season, the show’s nudity appears to be on everybody’s thoughts once again. As I discussed in my previous post about Lena Dunham, the quite frank and unapologetic nudity onscreen has been a frequent subject of any first ladys nudists and large point of criticism.
Lena Dunham plays the main character, Hannah. She is probably the one we see naked most often. She’s been frequently asked about the nudity in interviews. Eventually, Dunham appeared to get annoyed by the questions.
The nudity question was recently brought up again. This time, in an interview with Bernard Molloy on The Wrap. He inquired Dunham just why the Girls character she portrays “is nude so much?”
He said, “I don’t get the intent of all the nudity on the show. By you specially. I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you say no one complains about the nudity on Game of Thrones, but I get why they are doing it. They are doing it to be salacious. To titillate people. And your character is normally naked at random times for no reason.”
With wishes to Girls, he simply didn’t seem in order to wrap his head around the fact that Dunham’s character is merely naked for the benefit of being naked.
Dunham replied by saying,”it’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be living, I believe, and I fully get it. If you’re not into me, that’s your problem.”
One would believe that the talk about Lena Dunham nude scenes would end there but no such luck!
Dunham’s co-producers, Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, were really ticked off by Molloy’s question. Konnor was so angry during the interview that she couldn’t focus as the conversation progressed. She interrupted to say she was “spacing out because I am in such a fury coil about (Molloy). This idea that http://nudismsite.com/tube/asked-them-if-we-could-all-take-a-picture-together/ ‘d speak to a woman like that and accuse a woman of revealing her body too much. The idea it merely makes me sort of sick.
Once the panel discussion was over, Apatow offered up some explanation to Molloy as to why the Lenha Dunham nude scenes are considerably more common than any of the other performer’s in the series. He went on to say that “Lena is assured enough to do it so we’ve got the chance to to talk about other issues because she’s more courageous than others. If Paul Rudd said to me, ‘I’m willing to be entirely naked in the movie,’ I would use it because it’s more honest.

Lena Dunham herself interjected that “I have people naked when they’re willing to do it.”
Apatow later asserted with Molloy and said to him, “There Is a way to word a question about the reason behind nudity on the show and it wasn’t done elegantly. If you re read it and you listen to it you WOn’t be proud of yourself.” Apatow went so far as to say it was “sexist and offensive misogynistic.”
Molloy is apparently baffled by the producers’ rage and composed an article about it, saying he only asked out of interest as a TV critic. Maybe we are not getting the full meaning without hearing his tone when he asked it. But we can sort of see why they might take offense based on how he worded it and how Dunham reacted. It’s as if he is saying the nudity on Girls is obviously not meant to titillate because Hannah isn’t hot and clearly not stripping down for the male gaze. And so, what’s the purpose. As though that can be the only purpose of women getting nude on TV, ever.
But, he’d have a point. Since most nudity on TV these days is still based out of sexual contexts. A naked girl on TV more often than not equals hot time. On Girls, individuals are presented with lots of everyday, realistic, nonsexual nudity, and they just do not know what to do with it. Hannah is top-free or naked in a lot of funny circumstances, but I believe she’s still only representing reality.
She is a little more nude than your typical super-small buddy, but I’d say it is still a lot like real life. Some women do hang out nude eating cake at home and are not afraid to wear mesh tops in public. Doesn’t everyone have a friend that likes to be nude as much as her?
In a GQ interview when asked about critics calling her an exhibitionist, she responded, “I recognize that (question) when the nudity and sex are taken out of context, but it’s not like my character is an exhibitionist – she’s only living her life, and I happen to be attempting to capture her life on camera and not attempting to avoid any parts of it. So I would believe that the number of nudity is completely proper in the circumstance of the show”
In other TV shows, it’s common to see girls having sex wearing bras, and they modestly pull up the bed sheet around them when their partner gets up in the morning. Perhaps we should be asking those producers, why are all of your characters covered up so frequently? Even in sex scenes where nudity would be entirely proper? Oh yeah, nudity censorship. Why do we have that again?
It’s not erroneous for Molloy to ask about the arty reasoning behind the nudity in Girls. I figure he could have worded it better. But I do think it’s become fairly clear by now that there is no special meaning behind the Lena Dunham Nude Scenes. As Lena says, it’s simply a “realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive.”It’s truth, sans censorship and fabricated modesty.
In any case, their strategy is apparently functioning as Girls has already been renewed for a fourth season. Catch the third season premiere tonight at 10 EST on HBO. It’s also wise to tweet, post and e-mail encouraging comments to HBO, Lenha Dunham and to the whole Cast of Girls if you enjoy it. I hope we see just as much nakedness this season! Maybe by the end of of season three, folks begins to “get it” – Nudity and the Lena Dunham nude scenes, in and of themselves, are NOT lewd, sexual or black! It’s just life.
