“Girls” needed to up the sex ante somehow this year, so of course Marnie got a rimjob less than five minutes into the Season 4 premiere.At first glance, it’s a tough call who had the harder job there. But further research revealed Allison Williams, the butt, worked far harder to make Ebon Mass-Bachrach, the eater, comfortable in his – er – place of business. Which kind of makes sense – if someone has a bad time down there, you can pretty much blame the butt. Here’s Williams explaining her thoughts on the scene to NYMag.com‘s Vulture blog:

“I read it in the script and I went into total action mode. I got everyone together and I was like ‘All right, Grace [in wardrobe]…we’re going to come up with something so ingenious that he is going to feel comfortable.’ …I grabbed the makeup girl and said, ‘I want to smell like a cake,’ so we put vanilla cream everywhere so everything smells good. And then I’m like, ‘Grace, we’re going to rig something invisible from the side but that feels like a pillow when he puts his face into it…. It was so elaborate – it involved Spanx that we cut away and glued down and involved menstrual pads and two of those weird thongs.’”

Meanwhile Moss-Bachrach had a delightfully heady time contemplating his acting craft in his Big Opening Scene, as he told MTV News:

“An acting teacher told me a long time ago that you should never take an entrance or an exit for granted. You want to make, I believe in, like, big death scenes and big operatic entrances.”

As Zosia Mamet reminds us/herself, Lena Dunham would never ever do anything for pure shock value. It’s all for the good of the story, she told Vulture:

“Whenever she writes something that’s uncomfortable or scary, we just roll up our sleeves and we can’t wait to do it for her and for our show. It’s not just, you know, a little eatin’ out from behind. It matters!”
