Playing 'Girls' Star Lena Dunham Explains Why She's Psychic

Lena Dunham has been the focus of criticism over the last few months, mostly due to her recent book Not That Kind Of Girl. But the Girls creator and star has been hitting back whenever she can.

In the upcoming fourth season of Girls, Dunham's character, Hannah, gets the opportunity to respond to her own critics. Was this Dunham's way of addressing the controversies she's faced recently?

"What’s so psychopathic is that we wrote [that episode] before my book came out!" Dunham told ET at the Girls season four premiere in New York City on Monday.

"So, literally, we're psychics and we should have a hotline," Dunham said, referring to Girls co-showrunner Jenni Konner who walked the red carpet with her.

"Now we're only going to write really positive stories," Konner joked.

"And just hope they come true," Dunham added, laughing. "Because clearly we have a power in our work."
