Lena Dunham Defends Taylor Swift's Right to Not Speak Out About Politics: 'People Are Nuts'

15 February 2017 6:14 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lena Dunham is coming to her friend Taylor Swift's defense in a new Rolling Stone article.

In her interview with the magazine, the 30-year-old Girls creator and star explained why she doesn't have a problem with Swift's silence on the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"I just think everyone has to do it their own way," Dunham said. "When I was lesser known, I was like, 'Who could not share their opinion?' Then I found out that when you talk about politics, people straight up tweet you the floor plan of your house and say they're coming to your house. You have to f***ing watch it because people are nuts."

As a longtime icon for female empowerment and equality, Swift, 27, has faced backlash for not speaking out against Donald Trump's controversial presidency, and for tweeting about, but not participating »

Lena Dunham got Maria Shriver more than a little flustered on “Today” on Friday with a well-placed “penis.” During an interview for the upcoming premiere of the final season of “Girls,” Shriver said that she had watched the first three episodes of the season. “You saw a penis, right?” Dunham asked as innocently as possible.

Lena Dunham's Interview With Maria Shriver Turned Into a Disaster Because of the Word "Penis"

10 February 2017 8:34 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Watch: We don't know what happened here... cc: @lenadunham @mariashriver pic.twitter.com/g11yup4Yqk - Today (@TODAYshow) February 10, 2017 Lena Dunham isn't exactly known for being a shrinking violet, but apparently Maria Shriver still wasn't prepared for the actress's ballsy sense of humor. The Girls creator stopped by the Today show on Friday morning to discuss the end of the popular HBO series with Maria, and their interview was quickly derailed all because Lena said the word "penis." At the end of their chat, Maria thanked Lena for stopping by and told her she enjoyed watching a few advance episodes of season six. "You saw a penis, right?" Lena joked, which seemed to completely fluster the former first lady of California. "Yeah. Well, I saw more than that! You caught me there for a second. I am not sure if you are allowed to say that on television - but you did! »

"Well, I saw more than that," Shriver replied, before quickly getting embarrassed. "You caught me there for a second. I'm not sure if you're allowed to say that on television."

Arnold Schwarzenegger, A Career In Crisis: Why the ’80s Action Icon Can’t Mount a Comeback

26 January 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This can’t be what Arnold Schwarzenegger imagined 2017 to look like: Sure, there’s a reality star in the White House, the Chicago Cubs are World Series champions, and his arch-rival (/best celebrity friend), Sylvester Stallone, is a recent Academy Award nominee. Yet for the ex-governor of California, far more confounding is how he became an ex-celebrity.

Schwarzenegger spent his acting life amassing a domestic box office of more than $1.8 billion. That haul came from comedies, like “Twins” ($111 million); science fiction, like “Total Recall” ($119 million) and “Terminator 2” ($204 million); or — his bread and butter — action flicks a la “True Lies” ($146 million) and “Eraser” ($101 million). But one unfortunate connection for all of Schwarzenegger’s films grossing $100 million-plus: They were all made before the year 2000.

Since the dawn of the new millennium, Schwarzenegger’s name above the title has carried less weight at the box office, resulting in drastically lower figures. How he »
