Andrew Rannells Defends Lena Dunham Against Critics: 'It Feels So Unjustified'

Andrew Rannells starred with Lena Dunham on Girls for several years, and he’s been very outspoken about her critics.

“We have open conversations about all of that — look, she is a real groundbreaking creative talent,” the 38-year-old actor told People. “And that’s always going to be very divisive, people are going to have opinions about it. But it always surprises me the fervor with which people come at her sometimes. It feels so unjustified.”

Andrew previously told Andy Cohen about Lena, “If I’m going to be honest, I’m mostly confused by other women who criticize her physical appearance. I get very defensive about that on her behalf. She has such grace and such a great sense of humor about all of that, that she sort of lets it all roll [off her back], but I get defensive about it. Like, how can you possibly be critical of that?!”

Just this weekend, Lena had to fire back at critics who claimed she had “20 slimdown diet” tricks – Lena made her own, very eye-opening list in response.

    She molested her little sister. The critism towards her is more than justified.

    “groundbreaking creative talent”????? For what? Having a raunchy show and getting naked on it all the time even though she’s fat? She’s horrid. Just admit it, Lena. You want to be slim and pretty.

    Who cares what people think, her fans love her, for her creativity and passion…..so what, if she wants to better herself image, at this point in her life, that doesn’t mean she thinks she didn’t look great before, obviously she is comfortable in her OWN skin, whether it is a bit heavier or a bit skinnier, people need to GROW UP!!!

  • Oh Snarky Me

    She sexually molested her own sister. Nothing else is even relevant. She is disgusting.

    Couldn’t care less about her look, it’s her personality i can’t stand.

  • Cooper

    When he says ground breaking he mean by not including any black woman in the show. Cause you know who wants to see that.

  • Cooper

    In addition to what the other person said she is also a PROVEN liar who makes up rape allegations. It’s disgusting.
