HBO’s Girls Sneak Peek: Hannah’s Ex Tells Her He’s Gay, Calls Her “Handsome” (VIDEO)
We’re loving all the raves that HBO’s new show Girls is getting — and this sneak peek from one of Girls’ first episodes only serves to justify all the positive feedback so far.
Here, we see our heroine Hannah (Lena Dunham) out having a drink with her ex-boyfriend, Elijah (Book of Mormon star Andrew Rannells, who, if you haven’t already, you must see in the Broadway show). She’s there to see if they can reignite some kind of Act Two in their relationship, but instead, is given some unexpected news: Elijah is gay.
He tells her that yes, he was thinking of men when he used to have sex with her. How could he still have sex with her? “You have a handsome-ness to you...” he says, immediately realizing how awkward that quasi-complement sounded out loud.
Check out the sneak peek below!
Girls premieres on Sunday, April 15 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
