Lena Dunham on Getting Naked on Screen: “Essentially important in my contribution to the world”

lena6 - Lena Dunham on Getting Naked on Screen: "Essentially important in my contribution to the world"

On getting naked so often in Girls:

“I don’t think I’d be able to do that if I didn’t think it was essentially important in my contribution to the world. I don’t think I’d be able to do this and put myself in all these situations on camera that are kind of humiliating and uncomfortable. Nobody wants to sit there doggy-style for ten hours while they shoot or whatever. It’s not sexy or glamorous.”

On body image:

‘My parents both have really healthy attitudes about their own bodies but also about the range of things that can be beautiful. But they also just always made me feel pretty and cool and smart, even in the moments when I have known – and still know – that my body wasn’t fitting into a traditional Hollywood idea of the female body. This could very easily be taken out of context, and I think it’s funny now, but I remember looking in the mirror as a kid and it would be like for an hour at a time, and I’d be like: “I’m just so beautiful. Everybody is so lucky that they get to look at me.” And of course that changes as you get older, but I may have held on to that little-kid feeling that was me alone in my bathroom.’

… says 27 year-old Lena in Marie Claire.

Can’t comment on her comment, but me and my boyfriend tore through the first 2 seasons, albeit cringing through some parts. I liked the show, I’ll be watching the 3rd season even though one of the main characters left.

Oh, but she did. She told us that getting naked for a crappy, self-absorbed television show was “essentially important in [her] contribution to the world.”

if you grow up in negative or neglected household,like your parents or whoever brings u up has problems with self-esteem, esp. body image/disordered eating habits you most likely(not necessarily) will grow up carrying the same attitude towards yourself, its great that her parents were so positive.And to me Lena’s body is not the most aesthetically pleasing but i mean uncensored sex life is a part of the show so yeah people get naked there a lot, so i would be surprised if other characters had been shown nude but she wouldn’t.

I like this quote from her really – and I don’t really like her show or her attitude in general usually. I’ve kind of always been like that myself – I sort of think I have some kind of reverse body dysmorphia! Even though I know I’m heavier than ideal, I can still see the positives and tend to think I look good overall – though I have days when I look at myself with harsh reality and feel like crap! But, I’d rather walk around with my head held high being a little deluded about my attractiveness, than be… Read more »

It’s not reverse body dysmorphia, it’s called a healthy self-esteem. Why is it that people who are not ideal are made to feel guilty or abnormal for liking themselves?

You’re right Mia – I shouldn’t think of it as a bad thing. I guess in this society it just seems to be the norm for women to pick out every flaw in themselves and magnify it – and it’s especially so if you’re overweight. When overweight women have confidence in their looks people think they are promoting obesity and in denial that fat=unattractive without question. I totally disagree with that of course, but I guess when I’m insecure I can’t help but listen to the criticism and believe that I am delusional for thinking I look good. I should… Read more »

Actually, I read somewhere that the majority of people think of themselves as more attractive as they really are. This self-illusion is not working for people with affinity for depression though. So I think it is a good sign, when you are happy with yourself. It does not only show that you are self confident, it also shows that you are not prone to depression! 🙂

Lived in absolute emotional agony over these ‘ideals’ and you know what?! I nevere knew what the ideals were because they just changed from decade to decade, group to group and person to person.

That’s interesting swissmiss, but I’m not sure it’s entirely accurate as I’ve battled anxiety and depression for years! I just don’t tend to get so down on my appearance as I do on other aspects of myself and my life. As I said, I’d rather be a bit deluded than putting myself down all the time. Also, I have had quite a few positive comments about my appearance from strangers and family/friends over the years – so I guess that has helped me maintain a healthy self esteem about my looks because it doesn’t just come from me!

Erica

solaxia – I have wasted time worrying about those things too, only to also come to the conclusion that ‘ideal’ changes from time to time, place to place and person to person and *the* ideal doesn’t exist! And would I even want to be ideal if I could be? I don’t think I would because flaws are what gives any person character, as you say. Plenty of people have great figures or perfectly symmetrical faces, but sometimes that leaves me cold – it’s too perfect, too predictable! I’m the same as you about the perfect white teeth – I think… Read more »

@Erica- I truly don’t want to be mean, but I have to write a reply to this. I think, in my experience and studying, that there is one basic ideal. You write that you came to the conclusion that there are many and that it doesnt exist, after previously thinking so. Perhaps as a coping mechanism, which is why see people like Marilyn Monroe rewritten as ideal beauties when we have proof and multiple accounts saying she was an ordinary looking woman who took hours to get ready and would get a thrill going out without any makeup because nobody… Read more »

And your comments about “too perfect, too predictable” make it sound like you find that unrelatable and threatening. Thats maybe why you criticize vs models who don’t have flaws. It really just sounds to me like they threaten you” I’m afraid they’ll judge me”. You saying models are ugly or not “your ideal” sounds like a coping mechanism to me.

Erica

@ Candy M – so you are saying that VS models are without flaw and their body type (tall, thin and not generally curvy) has always and will always be the ideal? Well, I don’t agree. People do have different tastes and different ideals – and although I agree that fat has never been ideal (and I’ve never claimed it was), I still don’t believe there is one ideal of beauty that exists in every culture – and across the ages to boot. I don’t know why people have a problem with my saying a mainstream model is ‘not my… Read more »

From my perspective the ideal was skinnier, at least in terms of bmi than today. Today’s ideal to me is muscular, curvy, and someone who basically looks “gustproof” and “plenty of meat on the bones” without looking fat. Back around 40 years ago the ideal was for a smaller more delicate build yet softer tone did not matter so much. To me the skinny ideal was at it’s height of popularity in recent history during the 1960-70’s and the ideal weight has been gradually increasing since then.

” so you are saying that VS models are without flaw and their body type (tall, thin and not generally curvy) has always and will always be the ideal?” Basically- yes. The tallEST, slim at least, whr is mainly subjective so no i guess for that part. I personally like rulers, but i don’t think thats objective. Candice and Gisele are equal. Gisele and say Beyonce are not. Beyonce is shorter, by a lot, has fat in the WRONG places like her knees and knock, shapeless arms and legs. Beyonce has obvious flaws. Gisele does not have any obvious flaws,… Read more »

“We wave it away with a cliché “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” meaning that beauty is whatever pleases us (with the subtext that it is inexplicable). But defined this way, beauty is meaningless—as Gertrude Stein once said about her childhood home, Oakland, California, “There is no there there.” In 1991, Naomi Wolf set aside centuries of speculation when she said that beauty as an objective and universal entity does not exist. “Beauty is a currency system like the gold standard.

Wow Candy M. you sure do take this seriously! I’m afraid I cannot see past you truly believing that Gisele is ‘without flaw’ and VS models are perfect – that is your subjective opinion, not some sort of undeniable fact. Gisele, imo, is not perfect and I’m sure many others agree. And I have never called VS models ‘ugly’ – I think I said that one model (can’t remember who) in the show was ‘almost ugly’ – that’s not the same as ugly! Also, they are not all perfect or flawless in my eyes (or anyone’s, I assume) and I… Read more »

Yes, and this idea may be a little out there, but think of all the valuable cognitive resources being wasted on picking out our flaws and feeling bad about ourselves.

Women who truly have good self esteem do not go around pulling down other women’s shapes all the time. Yes I am looking at you kimberly and erica. Both of you like to put down other females bodies unless you can personally relate to them. You both come across as arrogant, but I don’t think either of you can claim to have a healthy self esteem. If you did, you wouldn’t go around bad mouthing women who you think don’t have the right WHR or women who are naturally thin.

Do you then prefer low self esteem/ false humility? I think i’m one of the few that loves her show and her obnoxious self. She’s pretty real and doesn’t sugarcoat sh**. She shows her vulnerable self – physically and emotionally fully knowing that she’s not everyone’s cup of tea. And i don’t see how looking in the mirror and loving what you see is a negative thing. Women spend hours in front of the mirror criticizing their flaw- I’d rather have her attitude and be happy.

Actually, I think it is a pretty significant contribution. She is bringing variety to the types of bodies women are exposed to in media. Not just either size 0 or size 2 with various sized implant “variety”, but what many women actually look like. Constantly seeing these so called “perfect bodies” on TV can most definitely cause insecurity and self esteem issues when you start to compare. When you look around there are thousands of different body types and sizes, so why is there such a limited range celebrated in the media? Personally, I loved her comment and wish my… Read more »

I find it really sad that anyone would consider being naked on TV an important controbution to the world whether you’re considered to be the “ideal” or not…the fact that she has so much clout with this show and that’s the most important message she cares to convey is pathetic. I’m sorry, but there are more important issues, one’s self-esteem shouldn’t revolve around their looks and that’s basically the only “positive” message I can see a character like Hannah conveying because from what I’ve seen/heard her personality sucks.

This is what I’ve been wanting to say, instead of focusing in changing the ideal which is futile and will never work- focus in your other attributes. Ive never understood why every woman feels she needs to be beautiful. If you are great, not everyone is though so just get over it if you aren’t move on and focus on other things.

“She’s pretty real and doesn’t sugarcoat sh**”

Haha yeah right! No coincidence her fanbase are young angsty hipsters. I only watched Season 1 which was her whining about having to get a job and having miserable sex with some guy she doesn’t like. Lena is a rich girl with well-connected parents and an inflated self importance, she acts like flashing her flabby gut is the cure for cancer. No surprise her co-stars are all well-connected rich white girls too – she caters to that demographic. Maybe that’s why I don’t get the hype.

I do think false humility is much worse,and I don’t think there is anything wrong with being confident. Although, I don’t really believe Lena when she says she loves her body, but whatever. I will say though, that I think her show is extremely overrated. Maybe I’m too old,and of a different generation, but I just don’t get it. Plus, I live in NYC, but in one of the outer boroughs (Queens), and I cannot related to her show at all.

I think the naked thing is getting way too frequent and a little annoying, really. I watch Girls. Not my favourite show on earth as can’t relate that much to the characters, personality wise, but it’s alright. But her getting naked was interesting and refreshing at first, and even a bit shocking considering her far from perfect figure. Now I feel it’s getting old and like she’s pushing it for shock value when the shock factor is gone.Nevertheless I don’t dislike her and even tho she’s not curing cancer, I have to admire her balls, since I think my body… Read more »

I like how the “Hollywood idea” of a female body is often portrayed as largely unnatainable and unrealistic, but I feel it is a reflection of our true human nature, or programming deep down, genetically, to prefer fitness over non fitness. Attractive physical aesthetics are a marker of fertility and strength that are desirable to the human species. Its the ideal because we al know it should be.

This is one of the many issues I have with the fitspo movement, even as I consider myself a part of it. No one is obligated to be attractive, or fit, or even healthy. And no one is morally superior for being any of those things! God forbid people feel comfortable in their bodies, regardless… Read more »

I don’t care for her. Another white “feminist” whose work lacks the perspectives of people/women of color and who frequently spews homophobic and queer-phobic garbage.

It’s great that she is showing off a body that is conventionally unattractive, but it seems like half of her reason for doing so is to boost her own self importance.

LMG
Guest

I wasn’t making a comment on morals, but rather personal responsibility. Taking care of your body and maintaining a healthy weight is part of being a responsible adult, much like paying your bills, or having good credit. Obsessions with perfection are not productive, but if you are not healthy, then no, you should not be OK with it or feel comfortable with that.

If she’d only gone naked for her role a few times than yeah, she could make a case saying that she was just trying to “show real women” or bring a new perspective or whatever.

As if any woman really aspires to be like her: spoiled, immature, slightly overweight, awful dresser, foul mouthed, and completely self absorbed.

I cant eve go out in the sun for 15 minutes without my hair turning level 8 or 9 or even level 10 blonde.

Is she supposed to be depressed and never show up in public till she gets numerous plastic surgeries?
So many young women are depressed and actually commit suicide due to self-hatred and feeling of inadequacy induced by the common opinion of what constitutes beauty.
Beauty is overrated anyway.

Exactly. “Essential to her contribution to the world”… seriously? her contribution to society is not being conventionally attractive and getting naked on a tv show about entitled self absorbed condescending women?
