Lena Dunham Tweets on Anne Hathaway, Seth MacFarlane
With Oscars host Seth MacFarlane and Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway on opposite sides of the personality spectrum, many people prefer one to the other. Some say MacFarlane’s jokes are too crude, and some speculate that Hathaway has been anything but genuine this awards season.
Now, Lena Dunham -- creator, director, and star of HBO’s Girls -- has tweeted her position on the matter.
On Feb. 26, Dunham tweeted in defense of Hathaway, "Ladies: Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth. Let's save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren't advancing the cause.”
After receiving backlash for her words, Dunham tweeted again.
“Hey ragers,” the tweet said. “‘The ones who aren't advancing the cause’ I mentioned aren't always, or mostly, women. Case in point: I saw your boobs.”
This jab at MacFarlane’s song from the intro of the Oscars telecast made it clear what Dunham thought of his hosting job.
After still receiving flack for the new tweet, she issued a final word on the matter:
“Now I've said something murky about women's lib and will return to eating edamame/thinking about moving to Austin like I always do!”
