Okay, you got us: We're
fans through and through. And, the too-close-to-home comedy would be nothing (or at least 1/4th less amazing) without actress Jemima Kirke's effortless rendition of Jessa. Indeed, effortless is exactly the vibe she exuded as
invited themselves to her East Hampton home for a telling interview and an even more intimate photo shoot.
At eight months pregnant, Jemima looks every bit as comfortable and confident as she does on television (though we quickly learned that she thinks of acting as her second job, playing underdog to her main passion, studio art). Kirke tells Vice that though Jessa and Jemima's worlds might blur, they are definitely not one in the same. Indeed, the IRL 27-year-old mother (of soon to be two!) has definitively made her wild-child lifestyle a thing of the past. She says, "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 fucked me." We're definitely glad she hasn't fully burned out...and is still down to get somewhat wild — at least in a shower. Check out some of the revealing (NSFW) snaps and click through to VICE for the full interview.
