This won’t come as a surprise to anyone, but Howard Stern isn’t a huge fan of Lena Dunham and had some choice, nasty words about the “Girls” star some time ago.
The radio host said that Dunham was “a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill” who was “raping his eyes.”
Okay, that’s actually pretty funny. But still, not very nice. And woah, Lena Dunham DOES sort of look like the female Jonah Hill!
Over a year later, Dunham finally hit back at the shock jock…at his own birthday party. Say what you want about her, the girl has some balls (Jonah Hill’s balls perhaps? Are they secretly the same person living a Mrs. Doubtfire-esque double life?).
Yes, Dunham was a guest at Stern’s 60th birthday party, and Page Six reports that Lena Dunham took the stage and gave Stern a piece of her mind.
“He asked me if I was intimidated because my boyfriend could be getting a much hotter piece of ass,” said Dunham, after refreshing the audience on Stern’s earlier cutting remarks. “At the time, I didn’t have the wherewithal to ask if you were intimidated because [your wife] Beth could definitely be with someone who doesn’t look like a cartoon of a Jewish female horse.”
It was seemingly all in good fun, and Dunham concluded her speech by calling Stern a “champion for women in the arts.” That might be stretching it a bit far, but sure, why not?
