Lena Dunham Admits She's ''Way Less Self Aware'' Lately, But She Still Doesn't Care What You Think About Her

"Sometimes being a creator, and especially being a female creator, is an exercise in shutting people's voices out," she explained. "Because there are so many who think they understand better than you how to do your job."

In fact, she had to shut out critics who thought someone else could have done a better job with Girls. However, she's not too proud to admit she'd do things different a second time around.

"I wouldn't do another show that starred four white girls," she said. "That being said, when I wrote the pilot I was 23. Each character was an extension of me. I thought I was doing the right thing. I was not trying to write the experience of somebody I didn't know, and not trying to stick a black girl in without understanding the nuance of what her experience of hipster Brooklyn was."
