There wasn’t anything intimate about HBO’s “Girls” premiere.
Following the SVA Theater screening Wednesday of the series’ first three episodes, guests crammed into the Top of the Standard, featuring spectacular panoramic views of Gotham.
“Let’s just say the space is full. Not that I am popular,” said Lena Dunham, the 25-year-old series creator, writer, director and star. She had reason to be impressed. “I’m geeking out! I can’t believe the people who are here,” she added.
Exec producer Judd Apatow and wife Leslie Mann soaked in praise for “Girls” in a private lounge not far from Dunham’s.
“She likes creating things and she’s always in a good mood,” Apatow said. “I’ve never worked with people who are in a good mood before.”
