Lena Dunham: Therapy ‘is like exercise, except I’m more likely to go to therapy’

Lena Dunham covers the October issue of Marie Claire UK, and here is most of the editorial. Yes, her mouth is open in EVERY SINGLE PHOTO. Yes, she’s trying to make “sexyface” in every photo. Sigh… you know, I actually sort of like Lena. I mean, I think she’s annoying and I don’t watch Girls, but I respect her and what she’s trying to do and I think she gets so unnecessary and misogynistic crap thrown her way. But on this photoshoot, I can’t really defend her. She looks so… weird? I’m struggling to find the right word for how this editorial makes me feel. Like, I feel sorry for her. Like all of the stuff she’s said about how she’s proud of the way she looks is all for naught because when push comes to shove, she’d rather just look like every other cutesy, try-hard, open-mouth-because-it’s-sexy actress/model.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

On going to weekly therapy sessions: “There are days I totally don’t feel like doing it , but it’s like exercise. Except I am more likely to go for therapy than exercise.”

She’s still on antidepressants: “I take a tiny bit of Lexapro [an antidepressant] and I keep Klonopin [an anti anxiety medication] in my purse just in case.”

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.”

Dating fun’s Jack Antonoff: “It just wasn’t something that I thought would happen to me. I imagined that situation less than running a show or writing a book. I didn’t envision someone who would understand where I was coming from in this way.”

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.’

She loves fashion: “I’m not saying I am a great candidate for the cover of a fashion magazine. But I do love clothes. People are always surprised to hear that – they think I walk around in a washcloth or something. I do think it takes fashion magazines a minute to be comfortable with variations of any kind. Adele is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but every time I see her on the cover, it’s like a crop of her face and it’s just so boring at this point. It’s such a boring conversation.’’

Being told by a stylist that sample sized women were easier to dress: “I’m like, ’Don’t say that to me.’ I mean, I have a fine sense of self esteem so I’ll be OK, but if you say that to another girl, she’ll literally go throw herself in front of a car. (Worrying about my body) is not, like, my area. Sometimes I will be like, ‘I feel bloated or outside myself today.’ But it’s so funny; sometimes I’ll see a picture of myself and be like, ’Oh, that’s not my best angle,’ but I just carry on.’’

[From Marie Claire UK & The Mail]

I agree with her about Adele and how magazines don’t know how to deal with Adele at all. Sidenote: I was re-watching Adele’s Oscar performance the other day and it occurred to me that Adele and Christina Hendricks are pretty much the same size except Christina has huge boobs. But isn’t it funny how Adele and Christina are treated completely differently by The Fashion Industrial Complex? Anyway, even though I agree with Lena about Adele and how The Fashion Industrial Complex doesn’t know what to do with women who don’t fit into a certain (sample-sized) box, I don’t think Lena is fighting the good fight by doing this editorial with her mouth hanging open. Right?

    I’m not a fan, but those are probably the best images I’ve seen of her, so kudos to the photographer and stylist.

  2. Riotbelle says:

    Very very overrated and I can’t stand her show .Judd Apatow must have done to someone a great favor.

    • phillkatt says:

      I never watched the show. I can’t afford cable. But I wonder if she would be where she is if she didn’t come from a wealthy, very well-connected family. It seems that all the “it” girls today come from money. Even Kate Upton is a an heiress to the Whirlpool fortune. Yes, her great grandfather was one of the co-founders. I don’t begrudge people having money — I wish I had some more myself — but I would just like to see somone from a poor, disadvantaged background make it really big. That’s why I have a grudging respect for J Lo. She grew up in the Bronx, was once homeless and she worked hard to get where she is. I don’t see that happening too much any more.

    • Riotbelle says:

      Phillkat,I don’t know who you are but I am willing to marry you.You are very very right,you can even notice that very much these days ,all it takes is good connections and a wealthy family *cough* Tom Hiddleston ,Rooney Mara,Taylor Swift *cough*

      All these people are filthy,crazy rich.

      • phillkatt says:

        I didn’t know that about Taylor Swift. And don’t forget Armie Hammer. Once again, I don’t have a problem with someone being rich — life is unfair and always will be. No one asks to be born rich (or poor, for that matter). But it just seems like its hard for someone with no connections or money to make it in the entertainment biz these days. They are either celebspawn like Lily Collins or their families are part of the one percent. That’s why I like Hilary Swank and Adele. They both came from very modest backgrounds and became successful.

  3. MonicaQ says:

    These pictures remind me of that “Updating to version 2.0.1, please wait” face Eli Manning always has. And I love Eli. The show Girls? Not so much.

    People, in the real world, actual human beings put their lips together a lot.

  4. Lupe says:

    I hate the open mouthed thing too, believe me, especially in every freaking shot. But she’s allowed to do a pretty or sexy themed photoshoot without it negating all of her positive body image talk.

  5. HH says:

    I don’t mind these photos besides the lack of variation in her open mouth poses. I don’t think Lena necessarily aims to be different, but that she wants to stay true to herself which just happens to be different. She just acknowledges this in interviews because those are the questions she’s asked. When someone doesn’t fit the mold, reporters can’t get beyond what it’s like not fitting the mold because apparently there are 6+ billion people on the planet and most look/think/act exactly alike……????

  6. Erinn says:

    That title is the first thing she’s said that actually amused me. I can’t stand her show. I find her pretentious and over hyped, but I did enjoy that.

    I also kind of like that last photo.

  7. Really? says:

    After having seen so many pics of Miley Virus with her gaping big mouth and media-tongue lashing, i am not at all bothered by Lena’s photo shoot.

    In fact, when i read what Lena has to say, and then look at the shots, i’m just fine with it. If you have ever had the pleasure (or pain) of participating in a photo shoot, you yourself would know that you take hundreds if not thousands of pics and your facial positions are of course varied. So, whoever narrowed it down to these final shots chose to go with the sexy look from time to time, but they’re not ALL like that.

    True, some ironic smug shots might be nice to mix it up a bit here, given Lena’s schpiel and all, but even in spite of that, i’m not at all detracted by these photos. And yes, i watch her show (even if i could be her much older cousin) and i think she’s borderline brilliant. Something i totally CANNOT say regarding Miley Virus.

  8. IWantToLiveInNew York says:

    The only time I ever went to weekly therapy was when I was suicidal and at my worst. I mean every week? As time went on it got stretched out to every two weeks. I am trying not to judge (as I think I am), I know everyone is different and has different stuff to deal with, but that just caught my attention.

    • Kiddo says:

      I would imagine she enjoys the navel gazing aspect of it, as opposed to the therapeutic nature. But I make that opinion based on what little I know about her.

    • maria says:

      She probably spends the time just talking about her self, not dealing with actual problems. If not she has a shitty shrink who’s unable to help her

    • Carrie says:

      What horrible things to say? So judgemental and ignorant.

      I have co-morbidity issues with depression and anxiety. Over the years I have learnt that when I stop the therapies that work for me, I begin to spiral. Badly. So I have accepted that I need to remain plugged in. Now to all you Perfect Susans that is self-indulgent bs, for me its the difference between functioning in my life and crumpling into a depressive episodes. I certainly hope none of you ever have loved ones with the same condition. Not for your sakes but for theirs. Nothing worse than hearing some uninformed person tell you how long you should see your doctor before you must be A-Ok.

    • A~ says:

      I go to therapy every week. It helps.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      IWantToLiveInNew York:

      Depression just sucks, and I truly wish for you to make your goals and get away from the edge of the abyss.

      An old friend once told me that “Depression can’t hit a moving target.” Although exercise can really help depression and is as effective as ‘talk’ therapy in numerous cases, I’d wager that you already try everything to take good care of yourself. Good luck going forward.

    • Jay says:

      I’m not suicidal any more, not even close to it, but most good doctors will want to see you weekly if you’re on meds to make sure that you’re coping well and that the medication is doing what it’s meant to do without an unreasonable level of side-effects, if nothing else. I’ve been seeing a doctor weekly for the past six months – only just scaled it down to fortnightly visits in the last month.

      Not a Lena fan at all – can’t stand her, in fact – but of all the pretexts for disliking her, that’s a pretty flimsy one.

  9. Mira says:

    Looks like she’s lost weight. Girls is overrated just like Sex and the City was. What is it with the way they talk on these shows?

  10. Why says:

    never exercised in my life…never going to,either.i’d rather go to therapy too.

  11. Lemony says:

    She is a cute girl & the short haircut really suits her. Aside from the “duh face” in every photo she looks great here.
    I’m not a fan of her show (tried to get into it but it just didn’t click for me) but I respect her for what she’s doing in the industry. Also, I adore the name Lena.
    I think I’m getting old because when I read this interview I was so annoyed by how many times she says “like” and “literally”. It grates on my nerves that all these young actresses talk like that constantly.
    I watched some interview with Hillary Duff the other day (I know, I know, I’m an idiot but I had to ice & elevate my knee after tennis & just wanted to watch something to kill the boredom) and that girl said “like” at the begininng of EVERY sentence. UGH. I’m nowhere near being an expert on grammar (which you can see from my posts) but I find that SO distracting.

  12. Mon says:

    So her getting naked in Girls was essentially important in her contribution to the world? Yea, that would be a no, a very big no…. Sorry babe but you have not contributed to the world as much as you think….I watched the first season which was actually really good, but since then she has made it about herself and quite frankly that’s not interesting at all.
    Oh, and when women are going to understand that trying so hard to look sexy actually achieves the opposite result?! Or should i have kept that “secret” to myself…?

    • Johanna says:

      I know, right? To the world? Bull! It comes down to the fact that you still project yourself looking into that mirror and thinking that we should all be worthy of seeing you naked all the time. That being said, I’m proud of her parents for allowing her to feel beautiful as a younger girl. The world needs more of that for our young ones these days so they don’t over sexualize themselves for outside acceptance… Side eye, Miley Cyrus.

  13. vennie says:

    I think it is a great pictorial. Why can’t a strong woman want to look sexy and own her sexuality? She never said she is the queen of frump or anything. The pictures show a confident, strong, attractive woman. Good on her.
    (wanted to add I have never seen Girls so I have no idea what her character is like)

  14. Marysia says:

    I think that all the haters who say that she shouldn’t undress because she has big hips/ small boobs should take off their clothes and spend an hour staring at the mirror.
    This said, I don’t like that Dunham is making some kind of fetish out of her body. In the show it’s often that she is naked even when the situation doesn’t really require it and she could have deliver the message with her top on. For example I think it’s uncomfortable to play ping pong without a bra (and my boobs are smaller than hers!), so I don’t know why anyone should do that, except for showing off.

    • lem says:

      that’s usually my problem with her nudity. it’s just unnecessary. and i say this about nudity in general, regardless of the size of the woman. it just seems lik her nudity is “i’m not what you think is conventionally pretty so i’m going to make you see me naked.” I don’t care if you’re conventionally pretty or not, if the nudity doesn’t add to the topic at hand, then it’s unnecessary. (and I say the exact same thing about all the gratuitous sex/nudity in Game of Thrones).

  15. Lee says:

    I meant to put this on the last Lena post, but forgot. I actually like Girls well enough, but also completely agree with the criticism that it is told exclusively from a very privileged, very white perspective. That’s fine in general, but sad when you consider it’s pretty much the ONLY perspective on TV. Now, there is another show that was shopped around for the upcoming season that was inspired by and in a similar style to Girls, but created by a queer WOC and the networks basically said either ‘there is no audience for this’ or ‘this show already exists’, neither of which can possibly be true.

    The show, ‘Twenties’, has now cut their pilot down to a 4 part pilot presentation to get the word out and see if there is an audience and/or if there is maybe another way to move the project forward. I watched the clips and thought it was cute. The production value seems pretty good (one of the producers if Queen Latifa!) It’s not perfect by any means, but I thought it was worth sharing. So I am passing the link along here to anyone who might be interested in it.

  16. Happyhat says:

    She so pretty. I like her, though I’ve never seen ‘Girls’.

    I read something Mindy Kaling said about sample size dresses at photoshoots. Like, seriously?! You get clothes to fit the person, not the other way around! Ugh…that whole thing annoys me so.

    And I think the whole mouth open thing is a photography ‘trick’. Like, to elongate the face or something. I’m guessing whoever chose the final pics of Lena decided all her pictures required facial elongation.

    • Esmom says:

      I buy that the open mouth might be a photog’x trick — you see it in print ad nauseum — but I think Lena’s co-opted it for herself in real life because she does it on the red carpet every freaking time.

      I’m not a fan but think these shots are (other than the mouth thing) super pretty.

  17. MsAubra says:

    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.

    SHUDDUP!!!

    • Xera says:

      I think it’s important to demonstrate in the media that are the first culprits in conveying the idea that a women’s worth is indexed on her looks that the heroin of the show can look different than the usual valued models

      • Kate says:

        I think it is important to focus on the idea that a woman’s worth has nothing to do with her looks, so instead of drawing attention by stripping naked and engaging in random sex acts, contribute to the world by showing yourself to be a thoughtful, intellectual human being. I think the naked sideshow reinforces the idea that women are objects lacking depth.

      • MsAubra says:

        So?

        The media can put who they want to the forefront, you’re basically saying that people aren’t intelligent enough to figure this out on their own. The media is going to do what they do

        She needs to shut up! :)

    • TheOriginalWaffle says:

      I think it is important to say that a different kind of woman’s body is worth looking at. Considering how hard most women try to look good (however they may define it), doesn’t it make her kind of a hero to expose herself just as she is?

  18. Brooke says:

    Looking a lot like Liza Minelli there. She has good features, why is she so ahem, homely?

  19. Ellecommelejour says:

    I wish she would keep her mouth closed the same way I wish Miley would hide that ugly tongue of hers.
    And no Adele and Christina H. don’t have the same size at all. Adele is shorter and heavier.

    • Renee says:

      +1.
      Adele is gorgeous, as is Christina, but they are not at all the same size. Adele is shorter and generally plumper, carrying her weight more in the centre body. It requires an entirely different approach to clothing than Hendrick’s hourglass shape.

  20. Shy says:

    She is gorgeous. Why do people think she is fat.

  21. Algernon says:

    When it comes to photoshoots, I lay the open-mouth thing on the photographer, not the model/subject. It’s usually the photographer calling out that direction. Now,if there are a lot of candid/paparazzi shots of Lena Dunham mouth-breathing, then yeah, we can talk about her open mouth. But in a styled shoot, she’s just a puppet.

    Also, as someone who does not have a pretty natural smile, I prefer to either just not smile and go with my neutral resting face, or do the open mouth “you caught me mid-sentence” thing in photos. Otherwise I look pinched and like I’m faking it, even if I am really happy. Everyone assumes posing open-mouthed is an attempt to look sexy, but not all of us are blessed with nice smiles. Sometimes it’s just an effort to not look like I’m constipated.

  22. eliza says:

    I think I am the only person who dislikes both Dunham and Girls. I find both highly overrated. Cannot stand Apatow either. Juvenile college frat humor isn’t my thing.

  23. Jessica says:

    “I was re-watching Adele’s Oscar performance the other day and it occurred to me that Adele and Christina Hendricks are pretty much the same size except Christina has huge boobs.”

    Well to be fair, Adele’s weight yo-yo’s a lot. She was slim at the Grammy’s, but for most of her time in the spotlight she’s been considerably bigger than Hendricks, and that’s how people remember her looking.

    Christina Hendricks is actually quite slim for her frame, when she looks bigger it’s because she’s chosen a terrible dress and given herself giant pancake boobs. She looks totally different in casual clothing.

    I would also add they’re treated differently because they want to be treated differently. Hendricks is usually making the most of her curves in something sexy and glamourous, while Adele’s idea of revealing is letting a little skin show through thick lace sleeves. They have similar shapes but wildly different images.

  24. Ellen says:

    These are gorgeous photos, but comparing them to the onset photos we’ve been seeing all summer — they photoshopped her body a fair amount.

    It’s not surprising, that’s how these magazines work, but it’s so irritating. Dunham and Adele make a point of being body-positive and then they get photoshopped to look as much like the ideal as the editors can make them.

  25. cynthia says:

    I know she was trying to tell it as a joke, but the “I’m so beautiful, everyone is so lucky they get to look at me” explains SO MUCH about why I don’t like her show and attitude. My parents raised me with great self esteem too, but they also taught me to be humble.

    • Bijlee says:

      I didn’t see that as such a big deal. I say that often too. It’s just sometimes you feel beautiful and you want to express it. I have no delusions about my “beauty.”

      I’m not an attractive girl. In fact people have told me I straight up look like a handsome man in some of my photos (because THAT’S what you wanna hear, right?), but even I will say that to myself in the mirror sometimes. Sometimes you think you look good, you like one feature, whatever….dammit I don’t like that I have something in common with her.

      I still find her show unwatchable, pretentious drivel and her to be pretty annoying.

  26. Shelley says:

    I wish she should look like she does in these shots every other day. There is nothing wrong with actually dressing to suit your body type but still looking cute…
    And how deluded is she if she thinks exposing us to her naked body is ‘making a contribution to the world’….there are healthier less offensive ways to encourage self confidence

  27. Lilo says:

    I went to therapy three times a week for a while…that IS exercise, believe you me. And I still preferred it to real exercise ^^

  28. GMarchetti says:

    “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.”

    My Gosh, when I think it’s impossible for me to hate her even more…

    So, we have to see her naked in every damn episode because she’s “contributing to the world?”. Could she be any more narcissist? Probably yes.

    Screw that self proclaimed artist, voice of this and every generation in the future. She should marry James Franco and live in another planet. The world would be better without these two, thankyouverymuch.

  29. Gayle says:

    She looks good here but in RL and on TV she IS homely. I expect leading man/lady actors to be beautiful or to at least work towards it. They have tons of time and money to do it and it’s part of their job, really. It’s not believable that she or Mindy K would get lots of men the way they look, frankly. If they were men I’d say the same unless they were loaded.

    • metallicwow says:

      I think there must be some amazing lighting and photoshopping going on here because this is the best she’s ever looked. She is a plain and not really appealing woman, and that’s totally fine – it’s just surprising that she’s the lead of a TV show. I don’t think that’s happened…ever. I think that’s part of the reason people are so fascinated by her.

  30. lem says:

    the irony of being on anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, and visiting a shrink, yet refusing to workout should not be lost on her. i’m not saying she should workout to lose weight/be attractive, but exercise really is one of the best mremedies for depression.

  31. Lisa says:

    Is klono really something you can keep in your purse ‘just in case’? It’s not like Ativan…

  32. nikzilla37 says:

    wow, she actually looks nice for once.

  33. Jayna says:

    Truthfully, rigorous exercise, to me, can be helpful for stress, even mild depression, or just to get your mind clear and stop focusing on negativity or whatever is going on that day. Plus, feeling fit I just always feel better. No matter how much I hate to run, after I’m finished I just feel a better mind/body connection.

  34. loma says:

    I know many women who, like Lena, are white, from upper middle class to very wealthy families and are also on depression meds or/and in therapy or have issues with depression, anxiety, food, or body image. Many have been haunted by these issues since before they hit puberty.

    From knowing these women it seems they were raised with the IDEA of exhibiting self-esteem but without the groundwork for this to take root into something truly substantial and nourishing. Lena seems to lack the morale and awareness one develops through an ability to practice honest introspection so her remarks and demeanor come off rather narcissistic. I suppose I’m of the Girls target demographic but after a few episodes I still dont get why I should care.

    Therapists can be the biggest sycophants around. Not all but a lot of them.

  35. LilyRose says:

    She looks great! I was late to the Girls party but found myself laughing even though I expected to not like it. All nepotism, blah blah blah stuff aside. I want to see what she does with this platform.

  36. Erica says:

    I’m sorry, but I love this girl. I love how she talks about going to therapy and taking anti-anxiety medications and anti-depressants so freely and like its no big deal. Because it shouldn’t be.

  37. StormsMama says:

    I love her
    It’s a good interview and i think she is brave regarding her body and all the snark

  38. Stephanie says:

    Is it just me? There is a striking resemblance to Dana Plato..

  39. Mandy says:

    Not a fan of the open mouth pictures, but I like the kissy face one! I love Lena, I think she’s great.

  40. Larissa says:

    It is a tv show, you like it? Good. You don’t? Don’t watch it. What is with the overrated thing? i have ony watched a few episodes and I was amused. That is why I watch tv in the first place. Not to be transcended to some parallel universe.

  41. lbeees says:

    I love Lena and am disappointed by the amount of female-dislike for her. Shouldn’t we be proud of and support a strong woman–presenting a female perspective on life–who is a writer, director, and creative producer?

    I just can’t get behind the hate. It is regressive and small-minded. Most of all it is hypocritical. How many posts have commentators lamented & bitched about film only representing the ‘typical Hollywood mold’? How many times have we complained about seeing only pin-thin women on the covers of magazines and on TV shows? And yet the instant a woman comes along who doesn’t fit that same mold, we tear her down and call her ugly, fat, pretentious.

    Ugly? Why? Because her face hasn’t been tweaked by plastic surgery to get that thin nose, the structured jaw?

    Fat? Why? Because she doesn’t spend hours in a gym to perfect a toned and tight physique?

    Pretentious? Why? Because she dares to write about and promote her experience as a woman in life? Just because she happens to be white, her perspective is irrelevant? (Complain about women of color or minorities not getting airtime, sure, but recognize that fault lies with the networks, not with Lena. It’s not her fault that the paradigm works that way.)

    You complain about only seeing one type of beauty–thin, white, perfect–because it is unreasonable and not representative of reality. And yet as soon as someone breaks that mold, you RIP her to shreds. The double-think is truly astounding.

    Guess what? Networks show you what you want to see.

    • April says:

      Do you work for Lena? Are you her publicist? Relax and take a step off the ledge. I don’t like this girl. Deal.

    • anon33 says:

      I am not required to support and like a woman just because she is successful and “breaking a mold” as you see it. Just because she has a vagina, and I also have a vagina, does not mean that I should agree with her point of view or support what she is putting out into the world.
      I personally agree with you regarding the face/body criticism-I don’t care if she isn’t Hollywoood pretty or skinny, and that doesn’t factor into my dislike, and I do find much of that criticism hypocritical.
      However, I am well within my rights to not agree with her point of view and to find her pretentious. And as I myself am a white, mid-upper class, privileged woman, again, my criticism does not come from that place.
      I simply do not agree with her POV or how she presents it artistically. She, and her show, come off to me as spoiled, whiny and annoying-just as the women on SATC did, although everyone seems to think this show is somehow better or more real or more deep. I was not a fan of that show either. Therefore, I do not feel the need to support her art simply bc she is a woman. I am glad that she has had the opportunites that she has had and has worked them to her advantage, but I can still disagree with the content of her message and not like her show.

    • Lee says:

      I wouldn’t say I love Lena (I have read some pretty problematic quotes of hers in the past), but I definitely like her. I think she is talented and reasonably intelligent and I support her nudity and enjoy Girls (although I didn’t like how sincere the 2nd season finale was and thought it was kind of gross actually in a knight-in-shining-armor sort of way).

      I used to be completely aghast at the reactions she inspires in others though. The ugliness and hatred that spews out of people when her name comes up is completely shocking and honestly heartbreaking. But knowing that she is confident enough to take it and that apparently it is not going away, I have decided to just appreciate that at least it lets me know who I would absolutely never want to meet in real life.

      This is not to say you can’t criticize Lena or her show with reasoned opinions. Go for it. But that thread up there about how hideous and fat she is? That’s what I’m talking about. I don’t ever want to know people that think or feel the need to express those thoughts.

  42. lisa says:

    i think the pictures are terrible, she doesnt look comfortable with that open mouth sex doll pose

    the one in the black lace where she clutches her neck reminds me of norma desmond

    she needs to shut her mouth – it looks like she’s trying to catch flies.

    I like her show a lot. I dont have a problem with her doing an editorial like every other actress out there. I am not sure what people expected that she be make up free and naked in keeping with the show?

    Omg. This interview makes me love her. I have anxiety and depression as well.

  46. Sarah says:

    Seriously? what face should she make? Why shouldn’t she make a face she think makes her look sexy? Is there a face girls who aren’t sample size should make instead “a fat girl face”? You are an idiot

    Christina Hendricks and Adele are not the same size!!! Adele is on the obese side while Christina is simply well endowed.
