Howard Stern Says He Loves 'Girls,' Apologizes To Lena Dunham

Howard Stern is sorry for his remarks about "Girls" creator and star Lena Dunham.

On Monday, according to TV Guide, Stern apologized for saying Dunham is "a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill" and that watching the show "feels like a rape" because Dunham regularly gets naked earlier this month. "I don't want to see that," Stern said at the time.

"I felt bad because I really do love the show 'Girls,' and enjoy it, and I admire the girl who writes it," Stern said of Dunham on Monday. "It makes me feel bad, and I think she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick."

Dunham went on "Late Show with David Letterman"
and said she loved Stern's "Girls" insults. "He said, 'Congrats to her. It’s so hard for little fat chicks to get anything going these days,'" Dunham said. "It put me in the best mood! I just want to be like, my gravestone says, ‘She was a little fat chick and she got it going.'"

Dunham walked away with some big honors at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. In addition to winning Best Actress in a TV Comedy or Musical, Dunham's "Girls" took home the top Comedy honor, beating out heavyweights such as ABC's "Modern Family" and CBS's "The Big Bang Theory."

"Girls" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on HBO.
