#Quote
1I always thought the saddest feeling in life is when you're dancing in a really joyful way, and then you hit your head on something.
2I'm an unreliable narrator. Because I add an invented detail to almost every story I tell about my mother. Because my sister claims every memory we 'share' has been fabricated by me to impress a crowd.
3I was constantly preparing for auditions in a way that was crazy... and then I'd literally get cast as, like, a bouncing ball or a fat man or a security guard.
4It felt like some weird career puberty, like how people you start to be flirty with before you notice your own breasts. I was being treated in a more adult way before I even understood why or how.
5I always felt like it was really special to have parents who were artists and to live the kind of life that we lived... I thought there was a kind of romance to it.
6There are definitely people who feel like the characters on "Girls" are intolerably in their own heads and they don't understand the purposeful part of that.
7Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth. Let's save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren't advancing the cause.
8I've started to get used to people feeling like they already know me when they meet me. I've obviously only experienced it within the past year of my life, but it's really interesting to have so many people who you're not familiar with act familiar with you. So you do have to come up with a strategy for how to handle that, and mine has been to try to match that familiarity by being familiar back. The only flip side to that has been that I've had this thing happen where I've been really familiar with someone and they will feel like we've started a close friendship, and then I'll feel like I've disappointed them in some way by having a boundary in my life.
9Sorry I'm late. My acupuncturist pushed everything a half an hour, and he has me convinced that if I don't do acupuncture, then something terrible is going to befall me.
10[on the criticism of the lack of racial diversity on Girls (2012)] It was the elephant in the corner of the room ... I felt like people were scared to talk about it [because] they'd get my racist juice all over them ... The argument there are not enough minority characters to represent New York-that I couldn't argue against. What I didn't like was the angle that 'therefore you are a racist, you are raised by racists, you come from a world of class and privilege.'
11[on body image] It completely sickens me what our culture is doing to women. Last week I wore a big top and little shorts and a bunch of stuff came out saying I was without pants. 'The No-Pants Look,' it said. And I didn't go out without pants, I had shorts on...If Olivia Wilde had gone to a party with a big silky top and little shorts she might have been told her outfit was cute...What it was really: 'Why did you show us your thighs'?
