Judd Apatow Thinks You’re All a Bunch of Prudes

Judd Apatow talked to The Hollywood Reporter about Girls, and he had this to say about the infamously explicit and awkward sex scenes in the show:

I talked a lot about that with Lena before the show aired. She’s so comfortable with the sex stuff, but I didn’t want her to be blindsided by the fact that most people aren’t. But she and I both agree people are way too prudish. It’s ridiculous that at this stage of the human journey, someone with their top off or pants off is going to give someone a heart attack. Also, I think people feel bad about themselves when everyone they see on TV looks like a Victoria’s Secret model. Personally, I’ve never had six-pack abs, and I’ve tried. I’ve always looked more like Norm from Cheers.

Good points, all. And while I disagree that he looks anything like Norm, I do sort of like that he views himself that way. JUDD!
