Dj Howard Stern - Howard Stern Apologises To Lena Dunham

U.S. Dj Howard Stern has invited Lena Dunham onto his radio show by way of an apology after branding the actress/screenwriter "a little fat girl".

Stern made cracks about the Girls star/creator on his Sirius-Xm broadcast last week (07Jan13), calling her a "camera hog" and "a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill".

Dunham insisted she was unfazed by his remarks, telling Tv host David Letterman, "I did find out that Howard Stern really hates (Girls). I'm a Howard Stern fan and I really think that he has earned the right to free speech and he should just go for it."

However, Stern's opinion on the series has changed and now he wants to make peace with Dunham, who won a Golden Globe on Sunday (13Jan13) for Best Comedy Tv Series.

On Monday (14Jan13), he said on air, "I felt bad because I really do love the show Girls and enjoy it, and I admire the girl who writes it... So I said to (producer Gary Dell'Abate), 'Would you please contact Lena Dunham and please tell her that I would like to explain myself to her on the air and apologise to her?' Because I do love the show and it makes me feel bad that she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick.

"It took me a while to get there and all of the sudden I went, 'This show's really really funny. I like it.' I kind of just started liking the show. And I've done a whole 360 (sic) on the show and I really admire the girl who writes it, and I actually like when she comes on camera... I'm a superfan now. I really love it. I almost went to the premiere (of season two) the other night."
