'Girls' Star Lena Dunham Talks Emmys 2012 Opening Sketch

Posted: Updated:

Lena Dunham may not have taken home an Emmy for "Girls" on Sunday night, but she certainly made an impact in the ceremony's opening sketch.

Dunham -- who has a huge amount of nude screen time on her HBO series -- told People magazine that appearing naked while eating cake in a grungy bathroom stall was her idea.

"I pitched the nakedness," she said. "Did anyone who has possibly seen my show think I would be resistant to that? That is from another planet."

And if you were hoping for a tamer Season 2 of "Girls," don't get your hopes up.

"I can't tell you exactly what's going on," Dunham said before the ceremony. "It would be a spoiler alert. It involves sex, sharp objects ..."

"Girls" returns to HBO in January.
