'Girls' Creator Lena Dunham Reacts to Tina Fey's Spoof on 'SNL'
Girls creator Lena Dunham had nothing but praise for Tina Fey's spoof of her HBO show on Saturday Night Live.
The SNL parody of Girls was a true honor.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 29, 2013
Very excited about the current lineup of SNL ladies. They are funny like whoa.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 29, 2013
Dunham watched the show at the house of her friend Mindy Kaling, who also tweeted a photo of Dunham watching the parody with a smile on her face.
In the spoof, SNL host Fey she played the newest addition to the gang, an Albanian refuge named Blerta who was rooming with Hannah. Fey's character had a hilariously tragic rebuttal for every and self-pitying complaint the Girls gang had.
"I have OCD," Hannah said, rather proudly. Fey's character responded: “I also have OCD. It’s when old cow bites you and then the disease infects the skin.”
When another of the girls burst in, upset she that her ex was now an Internet millionaire, Fey's character said that her ex was buried in a shallow grave somewhere. (Watch the video below.)
Dunham and Fey were both nominated for outstanding lead actress at last week's Primetime Emmy Awards; both lost the honor to Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
