    Lena Dunham joked that Diane Keaton once mistook her for a lesbian at a Christmas party hosted by Jennifer Aniston. Dunham, who’s dating Jack Antonoff, said she had attended the party with Judd Apatow, and Keaton had first asked if they were on a date. But Apatow replied, “No, this is my friend Lena, and she’s significantly younger than me.” Dunham said of Keaton, “And then she looked at me, and she said, ‘Do you even like men? Are you interested in men?’ It was the best thing. So Diane Keaton was just straight up like, ‘There is a lesbian...

    President Barack Obama has been a noted abortion activists while in the White House and he was once so pro-abortion that he wouldn’t vote for a bill to protect babies who survive abortions. Now, his daughter Malia is working as an intern on the set of the controversial HBO series “Girls” with Planned Parenthood abortion business celebrity spokeswoman Lena Dunham. Entertainment web site TMZ has the details and a picture: Add Malia Obama’s name to the cast and crew of “Girls” — but before POTUS has a heart attack … she’s not starring in the racy show … just interning...
  • Judd Apatow Slams Bill Cosby Again Over Rape Allegations

    Judd Apatow continues to throw shade, shade, shade at Bill Cosby, months after the media firestorm over his rape allegations has subsided. Cosby, 77, is accused of sexually assaulting at least 40 women since the '60s. He has denied the allegations, which resurfaced last October, and has never been charged with a crime over them. He has meanwhile continued performing standup comedy. However, his onscreen career has stalled. The controversy had drawn a slew of mocking tweets and the star that appears to be the least relentless is Apatow, 47, who has often slammed him online. "I can't believe we...

    How can Judd Apatow, once ranked the smartest guy in Hollywood be so . . . ? On today's With All Due Respect, big comedy macher [credits include Lena Dunham's Girls] Apatow said it was "ridiculous that anyone thinks that rich people care about other people. When the Koch brothers give a billion dollars, it is not out of a great concern for the masses." To his credit, Mark Halperin twice pressed Apatow as to whether his notion that rich donors don't care about other people also applies to rich Hollywood liberals. Apatow eventually asserted that there's a difference: "Hollywood...

    By now, the story of the Duggars, the family features in the reality show “19 Kids and Counting,” is all too familiar to those who follow the sordid side of the news. When Josh Duggar, now an adult, was found to have molested four of his sisters when he was an adolescent, the show was cancelled and Duggar was obliged to resign from a position at the Family Research Council. The glee with which the Left has treated the news of a fundamentalist Christian family having been found to have a dark secret has caused Sarah Palin to rouse herself...

    Aesop couldn’t have told this fable better.  Three sex scandals, and three different responses.  The Left celebrates admitted sexual abuse for their own, ravages those who honestly approach the subject, and withholds judgment for those who cover it up. The profane, progressive and feminist actress Lena Dunham molested her one-year-old sister when she was seven.  Dunham admitted, even praised this act, calling it “sexual exploration.”  When they were older, she also paid her sister with candles for “prolonged kisses on the lips” and masturbated in bed next to her when Dunham was 17 and her sister was just 11 years old....

The star and creator of the HBO series Girls has been a vocal proponent for abortion throughout her career, and as the aforementioned stars were paying homage to the ladies who gave them life Sunday, Dunham was reminding her two million Twitter followers she believes life should be given strictly by choice.

    Lena Dunham is in the doghouse with the Anti-Defamation League over her latest New Yorker essay. The ADL took a shot at the "Girls" creator over a satirical new essay comparing her dog with her Jewish boyfriend, calling the piece "tasteless" for playing "with offensive stereotypes about Jews." In the essay in the highbrow mag's March 30 issue, the 28-year-old actress asks, "Do the following statements refer to (a) my dog or (b) my Jewish boyfriend?" "He doesn't tip. And he never brings his wallet anywhere," she writes in one hint. Elsewhere in the "Shouts & Murmurs" column, she reveals...

As the mainstream media erupts over Williams’ fish tales about downed helicopters, dead bodies floating in flood-swamped streets of New Orleans and burning puppies, another one of news anchor’s bizarre behaviors is going unnoticed. If NBC is embarrassed by its managing editor's fibs, what about Williams’s kinky voyeurism when it comes to his actress-daughter's explicit sex-capades on HBO? Katrina and helicopter lies are only the tip of the iceberg. Williams is not only a liar, he looks to be one sick...

    The common definition of blasphemy is simple: an affront to faith or belief, an offense to god or what you believe to be spiritually sacred. This definition has widened, however, to encompass truly anything you hold sacred. No longer just a religious term, people apply blasphemy to language about gender, social issues, climate, pets, their heroes, their countries, even their health practices, favorite bands or teams. Mind you, this is different from the faux outrage I wrote an entire book about (see the delightful The Joy of Hate), in which people trump up phony anger based on assorted violations of...

    Like any women’s magazine selling pro-abortion feminism alongside cover girls wearing $1,800 earrings and $675 pumps, the February issue of Elle is bowing deeply to HBO’s Girls creator and star Lena Dunham. The article was headlined “That Girl Is A Woman Now: In four years, Lena Dunham has springboarded from cable’s freshest voice to full-on cultural icon.” Jessica Pressler began with Dunham showing up in a black SUV at the Austin, Texas abortion center of Planned Parenthood, asking “Do I need to cover up my nipples?” The writer crassly noted this is odd considering “Her rack has logged so much...

We caught up with the cast (and Brian Williams) at the season four premiere and asked them — as delicately as we could — their thoughts on the soon-to-be-infamous sex scene.

    There are few figures in popular media that I find less interesting than Lena Dunham.It has always seemed to me that the absurdly copious acclaim she receives from moribund institutions of spent cultural relevance like The New York Times were inversely proportional to her observable significance. She was a useful totem for the cultural left; unconventional, counter-cultural, a writer and performer on a modestly popular show that exalts lasciviousness, and, most importantly, an activist progressive. As such, she needs to be aggrandized even though her commendations are not entirely earned and her vast influence cannot be independently confirmed. I...

Daniel Dalton explains: Dunham, who is a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, was interviewed on the Howard Stern Show when her book was released. On the show (before her rape story was thoroughly debunked), Dunham makes the statement that, “There was a big part of me that thought people...

    Liberals continuously need another crisis to fundamentally transform a country into a socialist “Brave New World.” And the more shocking and/or disturbing the better.

Lately, the left wing is frothing about a new crisis – a “rape culture.” There are many TV series showing how police will stop at nothing to put sex offenders behind bars.

Faceless and nameless men and women volunteer every day, all across the country, to counsel, shelter and heal sexual assault victims. Hollywood darling Lena Dunham is advocating for women too. But Dunham is neither offering women practical tools to deter rape nor taking a six-month sabbatical to volunteer at a woman’s shelter. She is offering a book, that women may purchase, containing her tale of rape. So, after contributing to Dunham’s coffer, a rape victim may read Dunham’s story in commiseration...

This also happened when "Barry One," the man wrongly implied to be the rapist, repeatedly contacted Dunham and her publisher to get them to clarify that he had nothing to do with the assault. Instead of helping an innocent man, on Twitter, Dunham found the time to write about inane subjects and make jokes. All the while, Barry One was being falsely accused of...

The article, called "Why I Chose to Speak Out," slams anyone who questions her story. The fact that she accused someone of rape, she explains, means that her account is completely accurate and if you question it, you are a misogynist. In other words, accusing someone of rape is the equivalent of proving they raped you. Recounting her thoughts when writing a nationally-published book available to...

The article resulted in the university suspending the fraternity's activities, and national outrage over the so-called "rape culture" on campus.

There are two passages in which she describes the incident: one in which it comes across as consensual but unsatisfying, and another one that she begins by saying,

But it is not because some lesser-users did not try to include Dunham's actions. In the "history" section of "Not That Kind of Girl's" page, there are attempts to mention the controversy. Higher-ups, however, scrubbed these changes and reverted the page to its previous form. Even changes saying that some have her claims have...

The proceeds from the legal fund will be used only to cover Barry One's legal expenses. If there are any leftover monies, those will be donated to non-profit organizations that...

    Breitbart has done an INVESTIGATION and has found that the rape charges that Lena Dunham hurled against an Oberlin college Republican named "Barry" are completely unsubstantiated. There was a "Barry" at Oberlin who fits some, but not all, of Dunham's description but he is definitely not the rapist. Unfortunately, "Barry," who can easily be found via Google now has the false finger of Dunham accusing him of rape. I believe he has strong grounds to take action against Lena Dunham. So what would you recommend for punishment? Here are my suggestions: 1. All copies of Dunham's books, Not That Kind...

    A reader writes: I think … VC/Wapo readers (including those sympathetic to Ms. Dunham) would be interested in your thoughts on whether Barry “One” (as the … Breitbart article refers to him) has a potential cause of action against Lena Dunham and/or Random House for negligence, [intentional infliction of emotional distress], false light, libel, whatever (assuming he can prove that he did not rape or otherwise have sex with Ms. Dunham as described in her memoir). At least to me, the question of whether an author can be held liable (consistent with the First Amendment) for intentionally or unintentionally (but...

    A media investigation into the allegations of rape featured in Lena Dunham's recently-released memoir has refuted the claims of sexual assault made by the Girls creator. The writer, actor and director dedicates a chapter of her book, Not That Kind Of Girl - for which she received a reported $3.7 million advance - to a boy she met at Oberlin College in Ohio identified as 'Barry', who she alleges raped her one night after a party.

    In her just-released memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, Lena Dunham describes her alma mater, Oberlin College, as "a liberal arts haven in the cornfields of Ohio." After a month-long investigation that included more than a dozen interviews, a trip to the Oberlin campus, and hours spent poring through the Oberlin College archives, her description of the campus remains the only detail Breitbart News was able to verify in Dunham's story of being raped by a campus Republican named Barry.

    Radical liberal feminism — the kind that likes abortion on demand and taxpayer-funded birth control — has been rejected at the polls. Or, at least, it’s been a really rough week, or so. And I’m not just talking about the fact that Sen.-elect Cory Gardner effectively pushed back on the “war on women” narrative by defeating Colorado’s ”Mark Uterus.”The story also played out in Texas, where — writing about the race — Mollie Hemingway observed: “Wendy Davis was the face of ‘War On Women’ Politics. How’d that go?” And it played out in California, where Sandra Fluke lost a bid for...

    Lena Dunham is now threatening to sue the right-wing website which last week published an article claiming she sexually abused her little sister when they were children. The claim is based on an excerpt from the Girls star and creator's new book, Not That Kind of Girl, and details how she once looked at her sister Grace's vagina when her sibling was a year old and she was seven. Lena defended the action as innocent childhood exploration based on curiosity, but the website Truth Revolt called the memory 'unsettling' and disturbing'. Since then, she has been in a war of...

    For the second time in a week, Lena Dunham has come out to discredit claims she sexually abused her little sister, which were based on a childhood story published in her recently released book Not That Kind of Girl. In a statement to Time magazine on Tuesday the creator and star of HBO's Girls says she is 'dismayed' over how the website Truth Revolt interpreted the essay about looking at her then year-old sister Grace's vagina out of curiosity when she was seven. 'First and foremost, I want to be very clear that I do not condone any kind of...

    Grace Dunham, the younger sister of Lena Dunham appears to have finally responded on Twitter to claims that she was molested as a child by the Girls creator. They appear to address a claim by right-wing website Truth Revolt last week, accusing her older sister of sexual abuse. The website cited an excerpt Lena Dunham's recently-published collection of personal essays 'Not That Kind of Girl' as 'unsettling' and 'disturbing'. In the extract Lena writes about looking at her one-year-old sister's vagina out of curiosity when she was seven. Today her Grace apparently condemned the article in a series of tweets....

    Didn't vote in the last midterm elections? It turns out many of the celebrities pressuring young people to vote in tomorrow's off-year elections didn't cast a ballot last time, either. According to the Washington Post at least five stars who participated in a recent Rock the Vote video urging youth to exercise their franchise didn't bother to show up to the polls themselves in 2010. View co-host Whoppi Goldberg, Orange is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne, Glee's Darren Criss, Girls creator Lena Dunham and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star E.J. Johnson did not vote in the last midterm election,...
