Howard Stern Doesn't Like Girls & Calls Lena Dunham "Fat"!

| Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsHoward Stern

Ughhh this maks us sad all day!

Strongly opinionated radio host Howard Stern recently familiarized himself with critically acclaimed HBO series Girls, a show which is created by (and stars) the young Mz. Lena Dunham.

And is he a fan?


And why? Because, according to Stern, Lena is a "fat… camera hog" who looks like Jonah Hill, and he doesn't want to watch her naked body imitating sexual acts on screen.

Stern stated on air Monday:

"It’s a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape. She seems—it’s like—I don’t want to see that.

I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she’s such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on. My opinion, if I was a producer on that, I’d say: ‘Honey, you’re a little too close to the project. You need to allow the other characters to breathe a little and let us get invested in them.

Good for her. It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything going."

Ok, just… wait a second here.

REGARDLESS of whether or not you're a fan of the show, calling Lena Dunham fat is INSANE, and yet another example of the COMPLETELY warped standard of beauty that remains ever present in American society.

And not liking a show based on the fact that someone being "fat" disgusts you really says more about the person judging the show than it does about the quality of the product.

Ah well, Stern is generally stern in his opinions, so we shouldn't be surprised!

    I can't stand Stern but we all know you have never called any one Fat, Fugly, Potato Head, orany other name have you, you Fu**ing HYPOCRITE

  2. Neil Alan says – reply to this


    Couldn't agree more, Well said Mr Stern. This woman just grosses me out

  3. 3

    But she is, and that bit on the toilet with the cake was gross and disgusting. If you don't want people to call you fat, don't act like a slob so no one notices you're fat.

  4. sants says – reply to this


    lol I mean…it's RUDE that he called her fat, definitely. But she IS fat…

  5. Chelsea says – reply to this


    But she is… fat…? Perez, seriously? Don't be such a suck up! TELL IT LIKE IT IS, BRO!

  6. michy says – reply to this


    shut up perez. you've called people that and WAY worse. so.. yea, shut up

  7. 7

    umm….doesn't EVERYONE say that about this show?…..

  8. mw says – reply to this


    He is so old and doesn't get it. Irrelevant Howard…you must be so sad! Lena is laughing all the way to the bank!

  9. mw says – reply to this


    PS She clearly knows she is not the "ideal body type" and doesn't give a f*cuk! That is part of the awesomeness of the show.

  10. 10

    I'm glad somebody said it, it's an ok show but it's not that great for the praise it gets, so thank you Howard Stern and by the way she's an unatttactive fat or not even skinny she'd still be unatttactive fat is not her biggest problem.

  11. mw says – reply to this


    she's "overweight" yet still has her OWN show on HBO at 25. gosh i feel so bad for her being "overweight" it's clearly holding her back!

  12. 12

    Yes. In Hollywood she is "fat" but in the real world she is normal size.

  13. MJ says – reply to this


    He changed his mind today. He mentioned on today's broadcast, he really likes it. ALSO, he mentioned how talented Lena in BOTH yesterday and today's show! Maybe you should listen to the WHOLE comment instead of running to the computer to just spew ONLY the negative.

  14. 14

    and amdits he kind of likes the show after saying it… Hysterical! baba booey!

  15. 15

    I watched the show and my issue was not over her body. It was just that she was not a likeable character and neither are the other characters. At some point, you want to cheer on someone in the show, but you really can't. I don't know how you have a successful show like that. Characters don't always have to be positive. They can be killers, like with Dexter, but there has to be some sense that something beneficial will happen. It just doesn't with this show for some reason for me.

  16. 16

    I'm not the skinniest chick in the world, but I have to say, she is pretty fat.

  17. Honeypuss says – reply to this


    The visuals are far from sexy– more on the sloppy side

  18. Fight Fatties says – reply to this


    Howard is absolutely right about this cow. Dirty and filthy are just two adjectives that come to mind whenever her picture pops up. The real world is filled with fat dirty cows that pollute the eyes and this cow is celebrated by those very heifers

  19. 19

    He pretty much nailed it. She's gross. I'm just wondering what horrible secret she holds over HBO exexs that she was able to even get herself on TV.

  20. oofah says – reply to this


    She is proof that sloppy seconds does exist.

  21. 21

    Rosie, so disappointing that you are willing to sit next to Stern…………….

  22. kikikiwi says – reply to this


    NOTHING will ever make me love Howard less. NOTHING. Howard Stern- you are THE reason they invented youtube, radio, and television! Thank you for adding joy to my life!!! LOVE YOU HOWARD xoxo, Katie from Cali!!!

  23. 23

    she is fat and she is ugly. she has got to be related to someone right?

  24. 24

    she IS fat. she is overweight, and she knows it. the character even states it herself. stop confusing stating facts with bullying. etc.

    everyone can clearly see she is indeed fat.


  25. shittrell says – reply to this


    I agree with Stern 100%!!! Why did HBO let this pig write and direct a show about herself?

  26. ditsyfitzy says – reply to this


    you people should be ashamed of yourself. just because every other character on television is a stick, does not mean that she is fat. and ugly? are you kidding me?! if you dont like the show, dont watch it. it is completely uncalled for berating someone and their success just because you dont like the show or the characters. switch off and watch something else and leave the girl alone. I for one, enjoy the show. I dont necessarily like all the characters but who says I bloody have to? if it was amber heard or someone else as hannah and doing the sex scenes, there would be no complaints. but its just a regular looking girl (no offense lena - i think you're brilliant and fair play to you) and it still manages to be a huge success. so credit to where credit is due, people!

  27. pollopicu says – reply to this


    She looks like such.a.fucking.retard with her legs like that trying to be coy. You're not a school girl, Katy, grow the fuck up. You look desperate and ridiculous.

  28. 28

    You literally just ripped on Mark Zuckerburg the other day for his weight! You were a total dick about his body type. So why is this different?

  29. Marc says – reply to this


    He said this morning he changed his mind. He likes the show now and quoted a line to Beth on the phone.

  30. mark says – reply to this


    i hate you perez.

  31. Dan says – reply to this


    Re: toleratingothers
    I've been wondering that ever since the show started.

  32. 32

    It isn't necessarily that she's fat, but that she has a horrible figure. She's an A cup with no butt yet a huge belly. So yes, it is SO gross to look at her naked.

    However, that's what makes it funny!! She's not cute and that's the point. I hope she doesn't change to please others.

    I do agree that she's on the show too much. I hate the British girl, Jessa, with a passion - she can't act.

    But the preppy and dumb ones are hilarious. I would watch a spin-off of just Soshanna. She's the best character.

  34. sidney says – reply to this


    I'm sorry I enjoy watching the show Girls even though I can in no way relate to it BUT Howard Stern said a fact not a lie. Lena IS fat. He didn't call her a ugly or anything else I mean unless you haven't watched Girls you wouldn't know she doesn't have a flat tummy.

  35. 35

    What the fuck is wrong with people on this site?? Lena Dunham is NOT fat! She's an average twenty-something girl. There are some serious assholes in this world. I love that she's naked on the show as often as she is. I think its brave of her to do it, but I also think that its important that its not just Victoria Secret models who are naked on TV and in movies, because its important that girls see what normal people look like. I love the show Girls and I think Lena Dunham is an incredibly talented writer, director, and actress. Howard Stern, grow the fuck up. You don't need to be a complete asshole to get followers, I think he's great half of the time and then all of a sudden he says something like this.

  36. TRUTH says – reply to this


    It's funny that any of your judgmental pr*cks think that
    A) You look good enough to judge Lena Dunham.
    B) Think you can get a woman more in shape than her.

  37. 37

    Never seen the show but that girl is thin in the normal world. I'm sad for the idiots on here who think anorexia is hot. you are so going to be dissapointed with life and headed for divorce and a lifetime of bitterness and resentment and will probably die very miserable. Women are beautiful.. old… fat.. they are wonderful

  38. RainbowBrite says – reply to this


    Since when does anyone give a fuck what Howard Stern says anyway? Last time I checked his opinions were not exactly eloquent or important. We're talking about a guy who enjoys the company of porn stars.

  39. smcc says – reply to this


    Re: sants – lol it's rude for me to call you an idiot but you ARE an idiot

  40. 40

    LOL….remember when Chubby Mario called out that dude from Will I Am's crew and got socked in the eye for his troubles???


  41. 41

    Umm retard, he does like the show and SHE IS FUCKING FAT!! She's NASTY!!! I fucking hate her..

  42. 42

    She is quite homely and pudgy i'm not gonna lie…

  43. 43

    I agree that Howard should not be calling Lena fat, but he has a point when he calls her a camera hog. How many times do we have to see her naked, I mean really?

  44. dreamssweetly says – reply to this


    He isn't wrong.

  45. fifi says – reply to this


    I don't think Lena is fat. I think she is average. Howard took a liking to strippers and porn stars who take coke instead of food and have huge implants that look unnatural. That's what he thinks is beautiful.

  46. 46

    Don't know who she is and, never saw the show but I have to ask…..why is it ok to call her, or anyone, "fat" on TV or radio? Had you called someone a "f*g" or the "N" word that would be wrong and yet we continually berate overweight people as if THEY don't matter. Why is that ok? If we have to be accepting of EVERYONE these days, doesn't that include those that are overweight? It's sickening how they just get passed over as if they and their feelings don't matter. But God forbid, someone calls someone a n*gger or a f*ggot, etc, then you're a hater/racist/intolerant etc. Doesn't make sense.

  47. Faith says – reply to this


    I think Howard stern is a real jerk. He thinks he is above us all, and that he can say any hurtful thing about people ad get away with it. he thinks he is this big star and that people respect him well I think people should spit on him for being such an awful hurtful rude person. And to call people names should only back fire on u you skinny long leg bug infested head of hair that you look so fuckin gross and as for your wife eighteen she is desperate or blind . And how are u Doin today

  48. 48

    OMG I hope he doesn't start on Louis C.K. He's fat and does everything on his show except cater. Oh never mind, Stern is irrelevant. Stick to the sybian schtick.

  49. 49

    Has he looked in a mirror? Hello skeletor.

  50. 50

    Re: SteveIsHot – so what? why hate her for it? you're a disgusting excuse for a human.

  51. Dominic0 says – reply to this


    Yea she IS fat. Her being fat is actually addressed on the show. Also, the show makes her seem (Lena, not the character Hannah) pretty nacissistic, but hey, it's super entertaining and we're all a little bit full of ourselves at times, aren't we?

  52. rockpunk says – reply to this


    Fuck Stern. On Ameria's got talent, whenever he said something that pissed someone off,he went on stage to apologize- usually this was the case when it was a little kid who performed. What he said is fucked up- you hate the show b/c she's not uber thin???? What an asshole. I've never seen the show, but I won't judge it based on how people look. Lena seems really secure with herself. Good for her.

  53. 53

    Re: rockpunk – the fucking show SUUUUUCCCCKKKKKKSSSSS Thats why. Go suck a bag of dicks you fucking pig. Or just go back to burger king. Nobody wants to see her disgusting titties. Her fucking fake hipster wannabe show.. ugh, it just wreaks of desperation. "Oh, I'm so different… I show my tits even though I'm fat and disgusting and the guys I get are way fucking out of my league because I write the show" Yeah, how about being realistic and putting guys on the show u'd actually get in real life… Like guys who look like Howard Stern or fucking Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons. Fucking disgusting pig.

    Today, he said how funny it is and that Lena is brilliant…report that.

    I have to agree with Howard. When unattractive girls try to be obnoxiously deviant for attention, it's pathetic.

  57. mtrrt says – reply to this


    some of the comments are DISGUSTING. You people literally have nothing to back up your disdain for her other than that she may not be attractive in your eyes. That does NOT take away from the fact that she is beyond intelligent and talented. People can be gross. And I'm referring to the people agreeing with howard, NOT lena.

    He actually has come out to say he Loves the Show

  59. Reese says – reply to this


    It's true, she is fat. And all the girls on the show, except for one are really difficult to look at because they are so annoying, unattractive and not likeable. I think the series sucks because of this. We are used to seeing good looking people and having at least one character we can relate to or like. When this doesn't happen it just makes you angry that its out there.

  60. Annabelle says – reply to this


    My teacher used to teach her and he said she was one of the most unique people he has met, Howard Stern is an idiot, he didn't write and star in a show and he has no talent at least she's making money from being creative and talented, he makes it from criticizing other people. And he looks like an ugly poodle.

  61. Sarah says – reply to this


    Don't like Stern but everything he said is 100 percent TRUE!

    Deal with it.

  62. Irwin says – reply to this


    Who cares is she's fat anyway! (I'm not saying she is.) She's part of a brilliant show - and THAT's what counts. She's got more talent in her finger, than Stern got in his gawky awkward frame!!

  63. PM2901 says – reply to this


    I'm ashamed of myself for laughing when I read what Howard said about Lena. The thing is, she has an odd shape. But, who cares?! Everyone can't have a body like Halle Berry. But, I do have to say that Lena being naked so much on her show is distracting. I don't want to look at Ziggy naked, or Chris Elliott naked, or Gerard Depardieu naked; so why would I want to look at Lena naked? I just don't. I'm not making a judgment that she should look a certain way. I just feel a little nauseous when I'm watching such a well-written show, but have to look at her naked 50% of the time. Girl, we get your point! Now, put some clothes on!

    Re: Annabelle – Hey Annabelle you fucking piece of shit, the guy fucking reinvented radio! He has more creativity in his left nut that you do in what I imagine is your ENORMOUS body. His show is a satirical commentary on pop culture. If you actually listened to his show instead of being a fat stupid pig and just believing what stupid assholes like Perez post you would understand that he was merely pointing out the fact that by Hollywood standards she's not skinny. So for comedic emphasis he calls her the fat chick from "Girls" he also says he likes the show very much. Now go cry into a bag or Whoppers because you were just SHOT DOWWWWWN!!!!

    actually, he said he likes the show a lot. Repeatedly. What were you listening to?

    Howard is right. Screw this entitled 20 something liberal hipster feminazi skank.
    Re: DivaDeb1 – Lots of people. Considering he has millions of listeners for his show, and whatever he says is printed and posted everywhere.

    But she is fat… He's a shock jock, get over it people. No warped sense of beauty here. Eating right and exercising is a bad thing? Right…

  73. KK says – reply to this


    As some have said before, she is 25, has her own show, and knows she doesn't have the ideal body type (something tells me that a lot of you that are leaving negative comments aren't the ideal Hollywood type either) and that's part of the show. It's one thing to admit she's overweight, but calling her a "slob", "cow", or "gross" is just being a bully (hope you're proud of yourself). The joke is really on all of you who dont have their own tv shows or something even close caliber. Also, there is no need to call someone a "piece of shit" or any other nasty name just to get your point across when you disagree with someone. I don't care if Howard Stern is suppose to be shocking, I think if he could construct intelligent critiques of someone else's work it would be refreshing. Can we make fun of him now and say he shouldn't have his own show because he's not pleasant to look at? (I know you listen to him on the radio but you can also see him online and isn't he on America's got ta

    Wow. U people are SO misguided. It's actually sad. The show is not meant to be a Kardashian sex romp. It's reality. Good. Bad. Ugly. She's Great. And that's why she has a successul feature film and critically acclaimed tv show. What have u all accomplished?? And how do u all look naked on screen??? Something tells me that paint would be peeling….lol

    Howard you became a judge on so flake reality show to stay relevant so whatever you say is invalid.

  77. Anon says – reply to this


    Howard's right, she is fat. People are right when they say that she doesn't have the "ideal body type" because most people in this country are fat too. The show is boring, none of the characters are likeable. It's a more boring version of Sex and the City where Lena plays the token fat, ugly girl in a group of friends who are all hotter than her.

  78. 78

    Oh well, she is fat

  79. zzzz says – reply to this


    I absolutely love that show. That's what most of us look like when having sex… not Paris Hilton, yet, shocker most men still want to have sex with us. That's the irony of the media. Women grow up thinking they don't deserve love or physical attention unless perfect, yet men (per "Eat, Pray, Love") really don't care… they really don't. Unless they are very, very, extremely bizarre looking like Howard Stern. Sincerely, if you were walking down a creepy alley whom would you be comforted to meet Lena or Howard? Lena hands down. I am really, really digging that show. My favorite was an off hand comment she made about having irregular periods. This is life. Real life. Fab and funny.

    Re: DrunkenHines – It's sad these DoucheBags calling her such horrible names… Especially when she only weighs about 125lbs… Sick that all these rude a$$ Mofo's think everyone should be 98lbs or less to even be seen on camera… Haters gonna Hate…She's loving all this exposure no matter how much $h!t you talk about her cause your just signing her checks and she is laughing all the way to the bank…

    This show sucks ass. The critics like it cause they are fat and ugly like she is. Complete snoozefest. Glad Stern called it like it is.

  82. howie says – reply to this


    Nice hatchet of a story. One sided and all Howard did was praise the show the whole time. The girl is a bit chubby but the show is still great. You need to redo this story and give an apology to Howard, especially because he has always been on your side, even at your worst.

  83. Jham says – reply to this


    TRUTH - Howard Stern is personally threatened by any woman who is confident in themselves and in their sexuality and who is NOT coquettish and deferential at the same time. Because those women have probably rejected him in the past. PERIOD.

  84. Quizzle says – reply to this


    Re: mw – He's worth 100 million dollars and she just barely is getting recognition for a show that could be gone in a month. I think she's laughing a little and then cautiously walking to the bank and praying that people stay interested.
