Emma Stone, Lena Dunham want to get rid of sexist nicknames.

Some girls don’t like being lovey-dovey at all and Emma Stone, Lena Dunham are surely among them as they revealed that they don’t like to be called ‘baby’ and rather prefer to be called ‘dragon’.

Lena Dunham combined self-deprecation with a little bit of “eat your heart out” in her latest #TBT — a photo of her in a bikini that she “forced” her mom to take in 2010 so she could “casually” text it to a guy she liked.The “Girls” star is the poster child for body acceptance that sees a landscape in Hollywood changing from sexy ingenues and classic beauty coined and cultivated from the contract days of the entertainment industry. The two American bold actresses, who recently got together to discuss the subject of sexist nicknames on Dunham’s podcast, talked over that their male co-stars should eliminate the aforementioned endearing terms and should think of some other creative, gender neutral nicknames like ‘Pal,’ ‘Kid,’ ‘Bud,’ ‘Dude,’ ‘Buck-o,’ People Magazine reported. The last century saw the film studios invest money into their actor stables and carefully manage the stars’ media exposure in a time when the headshot was high art, makeup was impeccable and no actor stepped out in public without being camera ready. The Girls star took to Instagram last night to share an epic #ThrowbackThursday photo that was initially meant for someone else entirely—the guy she had a crush on in 2010.

Stars, both men and women, were styled and dressed to perfection, as witnessed by some classic photos of Cary Grant, Nat King Cole, Sophia Loren and Eartha Kitt below: Lena Dunham joins Gabourey Sidibe and Rebel Wilson who are box office heavyweights in every sense of the word, unapologetically. Since the snap was taken, the brunette beauty has gone onto create a Golden Globe winning show, host Saturday Night Live, publish a bestseller — oh, and become besties with Taylor Swift. Still, we’re so happy to see the starlet posting revealing pics again after she was forced to hand over the control of her Twitter account back in September following unbearable body-shaming comments on the social media site.

It’s a more positive community,” said Dunham in a September interview with Re/code. “I take a picture, I post it, I move on.” Dunham is no stranger to posting pictures in her bikini, bra or even less on Instagram. But this isn’t the first picture Dunham has ‘grammed that shows off her body—she has shared images of herself in workout clothes and lingerie in the past. In the piece, Dunham talks about turning 30: “Ageism exists in all direction, but it isn’t the sweet spot for being taken seriously in the workplace.

I got to do a lot of things before I was 30 that most people don’t.” She says. “I love the Internet because it helped me discover everything that matters to me. Monsters and Critics’ were present at the Television Critics’ Association winter press tour (2014) HBO panel when Dunham was asked by The Wrap’s Tim Molloy, about her “Girls” character’s propensity to strip down frequently in a scene. I don’t get the purpose of all of the nudity on the show, by you particularly, and I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you go, “Nobody complains about the nudity on ‘Game of Thrones,’” but I get why they are doing it.
