Not that we needed anyone to sway us, but Time Magazine has named Lena Dunham the “coolest” person of 2012.
“The 2012 Coolest Person of the Year is a woman who was unafraid to showcase her flaws. A woman who wore less makeup on TV than in real life and purposely shot herself naked in more unflattering ways than a blackmailer would. A woman whose entire persona is based on doing the wrong thing yet who reportedly got a $3.7 million advance for an advice book,” Time writes.
“A woman who made an Obama campaign video centering on a double entendre about losing her virginity to the President. A woman who was nominated for four Emmys and, far cooler, zero People’s Choice Awards. A woman who responded to 2010 Coolest Person James Franco’s harsh Huffington Post essay criticizing Girls, the HBO show she created and stars in, by saying she’s a big James Franco fan,” the magazine went on.
Dunham has certainly accomplished quite a lot in the year 2012: as “the voice of her generation, or a generation,” the 26-year-old Jewish New York native wrote, directed, and starred in hit-HBO series “Girls” and has also signed a $3.5 million book deal.
Season 2 of “Girls” debuts January 13, 2013– 24 days and counting…
