Lena Dunham got to take home more than one Golden Globe award Sunday night for her HBO comedy Girls, and on Monday, she got some kind words from Howard Stern.
After saying what some had construed as unkind and very unflattering things a week earlier about Dunham, the series creator and star, shock jock Stern decided he had some explaining to do on his radio show. After all, he was catching heat for describing the actress as "a little fat girl who kinda looks like Jonah Hill."
One his first radio show after the Globes, Stern was trying to make amends. "I felt bad because I really do love the show Girls and enjoy it. And I admire the girl who writes it so ..." And the DJ said any report that portrayed him as bashing Dunham and her show was "a hatchet job."
America's Got Talent judge Stern said Monday that he wanted one of his people to contact Dunham to tell her that "I would like to explain myself to her on the air and apologize to her because I do love the show and it makes me feel bad that she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick."
