Lena Dunham is on "Fresh Air" today, and she explains many things to Terry Gross, including how she feels about the criticism that Girls is too white ("I always want to avoid rendering an experience I can't speak to accurately") and the kind of romantic comedies she doesn't like ("I'm sure those writers would not appreciate me distilling their thesis down to the search for a diamond, but there's a kind of female character that doesn't make sense to me"). She also explains her relationship to her parents, whom she lives with on and off, thusly: "I feel like I'm constantly asking them to please stay out of my work life, but also to please bring me soup." Growing up is kind of the worst!
