(Newser) – If you don't like the nudity on HBO's comedy-drama Girls, that's your problem, the show's producers said yesterday. During a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, a reporter apparently asked creator, producer, and star Lena Dunham why the show's seemingly random nude scenes are necessary. She and the show's two other producers didn't hold back in their responses:

  • Dunham: "It's a realistic expression of what it's like to be alive, I think, and I totally get it. If you're not into me, that's your problem, and you're going to have to kind of work that out with whatever professionals you've hired."
  • Judd Apatow: "Do you have a girlfriend? Does she like you? Let's see how she likes you when you quote that with your question, just write the whole question as you stated it."
  • Jenni Konner: Later in the event she brought the incident up again, noting, "I literally was spacing out because I'm in such a rage spiral about that guy. I was just looking at him ... and going into this rage [over] this idea that you would ... accuse a woman of showing her body too much. The idea of it just makes me sort of sick."
