IMPT: Do Not Delete An Email With The Subject Line: “From Judd Apatow”
GQ: I read that you and Lena first talked after you sent her an email about Tiny Furniture, the 2010 movie she wrote, directed and starred in. Do you remember what you wrote to her?Judd Apatow: That’s a very good question. I don’t remember what I said. [To Lena, who is in the room with him.] Lena, what did I say in my e-mail?

Lena Dunham: The title of the e-mail was “From Judd Apatow.” I thought it was my friend Isabel pranking me. He said, “I saw your movie. I cried, which is not rare for me. But I laughed out loud, which is rare.” Then he said a few things he liked that were really nice. Then he said, “If you ever want someone to give you a lot of money and screw everything up, we should talk.”

GQ: That’s awesome. I love that you have it committed to memory. Lena Dunham: Oh my God. I have an e-mail called Very Important Work E-mails. All that’s in there is Judd’s and another email where somebody wrote something really mean to me. Okay, I’m gonna give you back to Judd.

Judd Apatow: I don’t remember being so witty.
