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.
