Judd Apatow is known for raunchy "bromance" films, but he thinks people are too squemish when that comedy involves "Girls."
Apatow, the producer of the HBO series, told the Huffington Post "(Lena Dunham, the show's star and creator) and I both agree that people are way too prudish about 'Girls.' It's ridiculous that at this stage of the human journey, someone with their top off or pants off is going to give someone a heart attack.
"Also, I think people feel bad about themselves when everyone they see on TV looks like a Victoria's Secret model," Apatow continued. "Personally, I've never had six-pack abs, and I've tried. I've always looked more like Norm from 'Cheers."
NBC news anchor Brian Williams, whose daughter Allision is also a castmember said he felt "unmitigated joy" watching her "awkward sex scenes," according to an interview with Vulture. "It's kvelling, pride," the senior Williams said.
The show premiered in April, and returns to HBO in January. The show also stars Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky.
Apatow directed "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up," also producing them as well as "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" and "Superbad."
