Dunham ‘Genuinely Excited’ to Be Called ‘Cool’

42-40914656

Upon hearing that she was the first woman ever named Time's Coolest Person of the Year, the Girls creator e-mailed: “Wow, that is — for lack of a better word — really cool. What an honor. Will I get in any Web trouble for being genuinely, unsnarkily excited to be the first woman to win Joel Stein’s Coolest Person of the Year?” We'll go unsnarkily on our own way now, but not without noting that, in a surprising turn of events, Barack Obama was named the magazine's Person of the Year.
