7 Things I Learned While Working Out With Celebrity Trainer Tracy Anderson

15 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, whose method has sculpted Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and Madonna's awe-inspiring bods, is not as scary as you'd think.

"I'm not a yeller," she says. "I know factually how to give you your best workout." (Obviously yes, she’s still intimidating.)

I jumped at the chance to spend an hour in Anderson's (very hot) Brentwood, Calif., studio, learning the moves from the master herself.

Joining Anderson at Wednesday night’s #BeatsHourofPower event was Girls showrunner Jenni Konner, who has been a devotee of the program for four years now. The pair engaged in a brief pre-workout Q&A session, centered mostly on the importance of a solid workout playlist. "I believe whole-heartedly that we are all programmed to move to music," Anderson said. "The closer you are to the music, the more empowered you become."

'Sex and the City' Creator Darren Star on Why the 'Up the Butt' Scene Changed the Game

18 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell ETonline all about the moment on their series that they most cherished getting to see make it from script to screen.

“You have to put yourself in the mindset of the late-‘90s, where this sort of thing was not done on television,” Sex and the City creator Darren Star tells ETonline of the HBO comedy that first premiered in 1998 and would eventually run six seasons, spawn two films, and make Carrie Bradshaw a household name.

My Favorite Scene: Executive Producer Jenni Konner on 'Girls'

The show’s frankness and humor about sex was both iconic and revolutionary. Yet, in the first season, hardly anyone watched the adventures of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Samantha (Kim Cattrall).

Watch the Exclusive Trailer for Lena Dunham’s New Doc About Artist Hilary Knight

27 February 2015 11:20 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Hilary Knight didn’t just draw Eloise he inspired a generation.

Among those the famed illustrator impacted was Lena Dunham, who identified with the popular children’s book character that lived in the “room on the tippy-top floor” of the Plaza Hotel in New York City. So much, in fact, that she has a tattoo of Eloise on her lower back.

25 Life Lessons We Learned from Lena Dunham

“That was my first tattoo because it felt like the only thing that I knew I would never get sick of,” Dunham told press at Sundance. “My childhood affinity for her never wavered. And I felt so connected to the character, and tattoos are about self-expression and self-knowledge, and that seemed like the perfect entrée into this."

It’s that appreciation for the 88-year-old artist that led her to executive produce It’s Me, Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise, a new HBO documentary about his life’s work »

Ep Jenni Konner on How a First-Season Scene About a Boy Helped 'Girls' Find Its Footing

19 February 2015 11:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell ETonline all about the moment on their series that they most cherished getting to see make it from script to screen.

Since it first premiered in 2012, Girls has told the harsh and hilarious stories of four twenty-something women learning how to navigate life after college in New York City. For four seasons, we’ve watched these awkward girls evolve into slightly less awkward young women -- in part thanks to the boys -- err, men -- in their lives.

For Hannah -- played by show creator Lena Dunham -- that’s Adam (Adam Driver), an aloof, sexually aggressive part-time actor who starts the series as Hannah’s friend with benefits but later becomes her boyfriend.

Girls Talk: Criticism Proves to Be ‘Triggering’ For Newly-Minted Graduate Student Hannah

19 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Well, she did it. Hannah (Lena Dunham) actually made it to Iowa (whether or not she actually makes it at Iowa remains to be seen, but things are already not looking good). That we didn’t get to see Hannah and her well-meaning parents actually road trip from Brooklyn to Iowa City (approximate distance = 1,000 miles) is a minor quibble about a mostly good, exceedingly crisply directed episode (Dunham directed this one, in addition to co-writing it with right-hand gal Jenni Konner). Things have changed for Hannah in the, uh, well probably like 15 hours since she left Brooklyn. She’s got a new apartment (a nicely appointed and shockingly large Victorian spread, procured for $800 a month from an understandably flabbergasted realtor), a brain-expanding graduate student life to embark on (approximate number of times Hannah reminded people she was a graduate student in this episode = 429), a bike that’s just about to be stolen, and »

Girls Recap: MFAches and Pains

18 January 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last September, comedian and writer Dana Schwartz created a parody Twitter account called @GuyInYourMFA. Meant to gently mock the precious, pretentious attitude affected by a stereotypical, Ivy League–educated, white male in a graduate writing seminar, the feed became an immediate sensation (it's now garnered more than 32,000 followers), because, well, everyone knows a dude like that, whether or not you've actually witnessed the mock-intellectual hipster snobbery of a creative-writing seminar's "safe space." (Sample tweets: “I only see plays that can be described as Brechtian.” “This was fun, but I don't think you should stay the night. I tend to be inspired to write at 3am, and I listen to percussive jazz.”)In the strongest scene from this week’s Girls, written by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner and directed by Dunham, the latter zooms in on what actually goes on in said seminar — and she nails it.

Girls, Ep. 4.02, “Triggering” brings Hannah to a strange new world

18 January 2015 5:30 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Girls, Season 4, Episode 2, “Triggering”

Written by Jenni Konner & Lena Dunham

Directed by Lena Dunham

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on HBO

With Hannah’s goodbyes out of the way, “Triggering” opens where many expected the season premiere to begin: Hannah, New York City girl, is in Iowa, and she can’t believe the rent. This episode focuses almost entirely on Hannah’s transition to life at the University of Iowa, surrounded by open green space and her artistic peers. Hannah’s on board with the former, for now, but she’s much less certain about the latter. This is the first time she’s been forced to engage with fellow writers about her personal work, writers who are at roughly the same place in their lives and careers that she is; it’s a lot harder to dismiss their criticisms than those she’s faced thus far.

Girls” star hires Pmk honcho Cindi Berger and real-life “Scandal” fixer Judy Smith

It’s no secret to many in Hollywood that Lena Dunham‘s biggest problem is Lena Dunham. It looks now like the “Girls” creator and star is attempting to solve it by hiring two heavyweight public relations pros to overhaul her image.

Dunham has tapped Pmk*Bnc vet Cindi Berger and Judy Smith, the crisis manager who inspired Kerry Washington‘s “Scandal” character, for their services according to media reports.

Dunham’s agent, along with Berger and Smith’s offices, have not yet returned TheWrap‘s request for comment. »

Lena Dunham Had the Best Time at the Golden Globes

12 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Girls went 0 for 2 at the Golden Globes, but you wouldn't have known it from looking at Lena Dunham's face, which had the broadest of grins affixed to it all night long. Perhaps it was the large number of famous people she was surrounded by; perhaps it was the knowledge of the scene that awaited Girls viewers in the season premiere. Either way, she looked incredibly happy to be there. Relive the night, which was tied with 10,000 others for the best night of Lena Dunham's life, below. The fun started early, with Dunham posing for a whimsically frightening nipple-shield Instagram for Girls showrunner Jenni Konner. On the red carpet, Dunham and Andrew Rannells managed the rare double-photobomb of Matt Bomer. Then she introduced what would be her signature pose of the night, the "Suck an Invisible String of Spaghetti That's Dangling From Your Friend's Mouth." All four Girls agreed: »

Jenni Konner on the New Season of Girls, Iowa, and How She Reacts to Critics of the Show

12 January 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When she was asked to serve as showrunner for a new HBO show about four young women in New York City, Jenni Konner likely did not expect that the show would one day serve as the core of a Sunday-night block. Yet here we here — Girls has just entered its fourth season, and it is anchoring a night of half-hour dramedies, including Looking and the new Duplass Brothers show Togetherness. Late last night, Konner spoke with John Horn, host of Southern California Public Radio's new arts and entertainment show, “The Frame,” about the new season and how she responds to critics of the show. (Listen to part of Horn and Konner's interview below, and subscribe to “The Frame” at iTunes or Stitcher.)I want to take you back a little bit in time to the original pitch for this show. Is that original pitch what the show has become?Well, »

Lena Dunham Made Sure Her Nipples Don't Show on the Golden Globes Red Carpet—See the Pic!

11 January 2015 4:01 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Awards shows mean a lot of fashion, and a lot of fashion means multiple opportunities for a wardrobe malfunction—but not for Lena Dunham. The Girls star, who arrived at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards in a simple yet stunning long red Zac Posen dress, made sure to take the proper precautions before hitting the red carpet tonight in Beverly Hills—and we have (hilarious) visual evidence. Girls producer (and Lena's Bff) Jenni Konner shared a racy yet hysterical snapshot on her Instagram of Dunham wearing nothing but her nude nipple pasties.
