Lena Dunham


Last quote by Lena Dunham

I don't fear typecasting – I experience it. It's a very uneven gender experience in our industry, where people just forget that women are actors; thus men are allowed to play a vast variety of types and parts, but when we [women] play one thing in the public eye or a success in any way, people go, Oh, so she's that.' I feel that the men on Girls have absolutely not been typecast in the same way.feedback

I was frustrated by it, because it really was evidence that as a woman in Hollywood, you just can't win. It's just so crazy because I spent six years of my career being called things like 'bag of milk' on the internet, baby cow, aging cow. I also just never felt self-conscious about it.
