Did you read the profile of Girls star Zosia Mamet in Sunday's New York Times magazine? The writer Taffy Brodesser-Akner met her in the Bowery Hotel, called her eyebrows "epic" (yes!) and "untouched" (no!) and described her tattoos, including one of an anchor on her hand, "because she loves the water and dreams of one day living on a boat." Dianna Agron was there. So was Amber Heard. What else?
1. Striped pants are not for the faint of heart; they are for the faint of thigh.
2. It's pronounced ZAH-shah (like Sasha with a "z"), not Zo-see-ah.
3. When you have a name like Zosia Mamet, the Times will send someone with a name like Taffy.
4. Young people have sex after watching her on TV.
5. She did her table read for Girls hopped up on cold meds, possibly laying the groundwork for Shoshanna's pantsless crack-induced tear through Brooklyn.
All of the main characters have alliterative names: Hannah Horvath, Marnie Michaels, Jessa Johansson, and Shoshanna Shapiro.* Doesn't it suddenly feel like we've been in a morality play all along without realizing it?
*Whoops, that one came from Vanity Fair, where you can read about Marnie Marnie Marnie/Marcia Marcia Marcia if you haven't alllrreaaady.
