Have you read the impact statement a rape victim on the Stanford University campus wrote addressing her attacker that’s gone viral. If not, you simply must. It’s one of the most powerful things I’ve read. I can’t believe her attacker only received a six month sentence despite facing a maximum of 14 years.

The cast of Girls– Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet- join forces to deliver an emotional PSA addressing the troubling facts of sexual assault in the United States. 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted, and 80% of the attacks will come from someone they know.

Watch the clip powerful below, which Dunham dedicates to the aforementioned rape case. “I dedicate this to the brave survivor in the Stanford case who has given so much to change the conversation,” she captioned the video.

It appears she went all Medieval for nothing.

Lena Dunham dressed up as French heroine Joan of Arc for Neighbors 2: Sorority Row but recently learned her cameo ended up on the editing room floor. She shared the news via Instagram with a photo of her would-be cameo.

“Throwback to when I played the role of Joan of Arc in Neighbors 2,” she wrote in the caption. “I ended up on the cutting room floor so you won’t see my scene in the film, but it was all worth it for these blade hands and the chance to rewrite history as a Joan who jumps off the flaming pyre and guts a lot of men. I can’t wait for this movie.”

As producer of Girls, I’m sure the 29-year-old has done her fair share of slicing and dicing. While it didn’t make the theatrical cut, I’m sure her cameo will the see the light of day when the sequel is released on home video. Check out the pic below.

Obviously, Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke won’t piece everything together. After all, there’s still a sixth and final season in the works before Girls signs off forever. Gotta leave something for them to figure out for the last batch of episodes.

If HBO decides to develop a spin-off, might I suggest an entire series based on Shoshanna living in Japan. The brief glimpses in the promo we see of her and Aidy Bryant in the Land of the Rising Sun are hilarious. Check out the latest clip below.

Girls To End After Season 6

Season 5 of Girls has yet to premiere but multiple media outlets confirm that Season 6 will be the Brooklyn quartet’s final hoorah.

It should really come as no surprise. After all, Lena Dunham didn’t make her feelings about ending the HBO comedy a secret. She’s stated in multiple interviews that Season 6 would be the perfect time to wrap up Girls.

“It’s really exciting,” Dunham previously told radio host Elvis Duran in Sept. 2015. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and I’m going to be 30, so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world.”

UPDATE: Dunham confirmed the news. Read her statement below.

The Girls Drift Apart In Girls Season 5 Trailer

Friendship is forever complicated,” the clip description states. Especially with these four ladies. They don’t appear to have much in common and frankly have been sorta mean to each other for four seasons. Why are they even still friends? Maybe that’ll be addressed during the upcoming season.

HBO just debuted the Girls Season 5 trailer. Here’s where the girls are at. Lena Dunham has a new love interest in the form of Jake Lacy. Her ex, Adam Driver, barely appears in the trailer, hinting perhaps at very limited screen time. Allison Williams is getting hitched. Zosia Mamet is in Japan and Jemima Kirke is… Actually, I have no idea.

Check out the trailer below. Girls returns to HBO on February 21, about a month later than it normally does.

To be perfectly honest, I think Lena Dunham does a lot of things like no one is watching. That’s part of her charm and what makes her such a unique individual.

HBO just debuted the first trailer for Girls Season 5. It shows Hannah Horvath letting loose during a dance class. Wearing a sports bra and short shorts, Brooklyn’s favorite heroine shows off what her mama gave her. Speaking of Mother Horvath, she makes an appearance near the end of the clip. Is this a hint that we’ll see more of Hannah’s mom now that she’s getting a divorce?

Usually, Girls returns to HBO in January roughly when the Golden Globe air. For its fifth season premiere, the comedy premieres a bit later, not arriving until February 21. Check out the teaser below.

The Hollywood Reporter holds roundtable discussions all the time featuring celebrities talking about the industry and their experiences. Usually, they’re held when a major awards show is on the horizon. This one specifically features television comedy actresses for the publication’s Emmy coverage.

Lena Dunham (Girls), Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer), Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin), Tracee Ellis Ross (black-ish), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) open up about sexism and racism within the industry. It’s interesting to hear their thoughts and, more importantly, situations they’ve encountered blatant misogyny. It’s shocking in this day and age that it’s as prevalent as it is in Hollywood.

The full episode doesn’t premiere until Sunday, August 16, but snippets from each lady have been shared. Based on what I’ve seen, I can’t wait to watch it. These ladies are articulate, hilarious and charming. Check out a clip featuring each actress below. They’re definitely worth watching.
