Jemima Kirke's Vice "Raised Up Right" Feature
Putting her nine month pregnant belly on display, the 27-year-old actress posed topless for the Richard Kern spread while opening up about being a mom and and how she relates to her "Girls" character.
A few highlights from Miss Kirke's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vice!
On how becoming an actress has changed her life:
"One of the best parts is that I can sufficiently support my kids. At my age that’s pretty hard to do without struggling or taking money from my parents, and I don’t have to do either. But it has taken a lot of time and energy away from my work as an artist."
On her "Girls" character:
"The character I play is not so far from me. I mean, fundamentally she is, and some of her behavior might have been taken from things I’ve done."
On giving up drugs and her partying ways:
"I think that way of life stopped working for me really quickly. Some people know how to balance things, at least enough to be able to continue messing around, but I didn’t. I was very all-or-nothing about it, and you burn out really quickly if you keep going that way. It really f**ked me.”
On dating advice she she plans to give her children:
"If I have a boy, I’ll probably just tell him to be nice to women. Being humble and sweet is the hardest thing you can do. Stay confident and don’t act desperate, because I guarantee whomever you’re into actually sucks way more than you think they do. There is always something they’re not telling you that will bring them down a notch in your eyes."
