Jessica Chastain brought an intensity to the role of CIA operative Maya in Zero Dark Thirty that few other actresses could have, but if Kathryn Bigelow was looking for a different way to go, she could have chosen Lena Dunham.
The Girls creator didn’t really audition for the super-serious film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, but if she did, comedian Chelsea Davison knows exactly what it would look like. Davidson posted a spot-on impression of Dunham auditioning for the film.
In the two-minute video, Davidson mashes the best parts of Girls with Zero Dark Thirty.
“You know this silence is literally torturing me. And yes, I do realize now that the choice of words might have been a little inappropriate,” Davidson says with a muffin in her hand. “You know, it makes me feel like an a**hole when I have to threaten to torture you every day.”
Later, Davidson makes fun of Dunham’s constant nudity on Girls. “No, you strip the prisoner,” a voice is heard saying off camera.
“I'm a big Lena Dunham fan, I would kill to write with her,” Davidson told The Hollywood Reporter. She also claims that she made it through 12 muffins while filming the video over the weekend.
“Ladies: Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth. Let's save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren't advancing the cause,” she wrote.
