Lena Dunham Talks The End of ‘Girls,’ Is Ignoring Bieber Trolls
In an interview with the Elvis Duran and the Morning show yesterday (September 29), amid the release of her newly circulated Lenny Letter, Dunham said the show could wrap up after Season 6. Season 4 aired its finale in March, and found Dunham's character, Hannah, enrolling in the prestigious Iowa Writers' Workshop, only to drop out, move back to New York and become a substitute teacher.
"Never say never, but that is the way that we’re thinking about it right now and we’re starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the story lines of these particular young women,” Dunham said. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and now I’m going to be 30 so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my twenties and then I go off into the world!"
And growing up seems to have helped Dunham accept what she cannot change. Once an eager (and controversial) tweeter, she's since scaled back her posts, and said on the Re/code Decode podcast Monday (September 28) that nasty comments have begun to fall on deaf ears—like those offered by Justin Bieber trolls, who rallied against her after she criticized his "What Do You Mean?" song.
"I would be upset every day if I was reading tweets from 13-year-old girls that were like ’You’re fat and Justin Bieber’s our angel,’ but I’m not, so I don’t have to be stressed about it," she said. "I’ve never even thought about it once."
