Lena Dunham is one of the most empowering and genre-defining women in Hollywood today and covers the April issue of Glamour Magazine.
“I want you to feel like you are getting lost with these characters. So I write long scenes. TV feels the least like life when it’s like two seconds here, then ‘meanwhile at this person’s house.’ I wanted to make a show that wasn’t as bright as other shows….I’ve always been incredibly attracted to pictures of my parents [the artists Laurie Simmons and Carroll Dunham] in the 1970s. That aged photograph palette seems to give an importance to their twenties. So I was like, I’d like to make something that shows my twenties through that beautiful soft-focus lens. Also, I get very fetishistic when I’m shooting the girls—especially Jemima.”
The issue is available digitally now and on newsstands March 18th. Photos and more quotes from Dunham are also available on Glamour.com
