On the sexuality of the show 'Girls':
“There was a sense that I and many women I knew had been led astray by Hollywood and television depictions of sexuality. Seeing somebody who looks like you having sex on television is a less comfortable experience than seeing somebody who looks like nobody you’ve ever met.”
“I’d been like, If I never date again in my whole life, I’ll be fine with it! I want to work and rescue rabbits and be a notable eccentric! I had a whole romantic idea about singledom, and then, of course, that’s the moment when you meet someone that you really care about.”
On her privacy:
“I have a really great private existence, almost more like a memoirist or a columnist would, and less like an actor would. Which I enjoy, because I can’t overstate how much I hate leaving the house. No one would describe me as a private person, but I actually really am. It’s important for me to have a lot of time alone, and to have a lot of time in my house by myself. My entire life sort of takes place between me and my dog, my books, and my boyfriend, and my private world. To me, privacy isn’t necessarily equated with secret-keeping. What’s private is my relationship with myself.”
On her younger popularity:
“I thought of myself as relatively unpopular. It wasn’t anybody’s fault—I didn’t go to high school with mean kids—but I didn’t feel part of it. . . . I didn’t really start to feel like I had friends in a real way until I graduated from college and became engaged with the people I’d be engaged with professionally.”
On what her fantasy job as a child was:
“I wanted to be a fashion designer. I wanted to be a babysitter. I wanted to be an architect. Every fantasy job you have as a child is encompassed in the act of filmmaking.”
