Girls Night Out

What do the ”Girls” women talk about over dinner? The usual: work, friends, hobbies, the future. Which, for them, means awkward sex scenes, a new ”Star Wars” star, ”Peter Pan Live!,” and the fourth season of their HBO series.

When the stars of HBO’s Girls get together, it feels less like a co-worker meeting than a camp reunion: warm hugs, exclamations over hairstyle changes, and breathless catch-ups on one another’s lives. ”When I hear the cast of Friends talk about missing each other every day and going on vacation together, I think: That will be us,” says creator and star Lena Dunham, who joined costars Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet on a recent Tuesday for dinner in—where else—Brooklyn. These days, it’s rare for all four ladies to be in the same room. Girls‘ fourth season premieres Jan. 11 with its heroines all over the place: Hannah (Dunham) is in Iowa for graduate school, Marnie (Williams) is still trying to launch her music career, Shoshanna (Mamet) is heading into the workforce, and Jessa (Kirke) is still at loose ends when it comes to where her life is meant to take her. With pasta and wine on the table, the conversation between the four women has the same wit, warmth, and raunch that have allowed the show to strike such a zeitgeistian chord. Buckle up for their thoughts on love scenes, nudity, friendship, and the secrets of Star Wars.
