zosia Mamet


Zosia Mamet shocked us all when she chopped her long brown hair right up to her chin and then later dyed it blonde.

Now, the Girls star seems to be attempting to give us a heart attack altogether as she unveiled her new GREY hair at the premier of A Most Violent Year in New York last night.

The new colour appeared to have some purple undertones and while we wanted to love it, we just didn’t. That’s not to say grey can’t work as a dyed hair colour, but it tends to have more of an impact on slightly longer hair.

That said Zosia rarely gets it wrong so we’ll let her have it this time! It's fun to experiment with lots of different hair colours and styles after all!

We're also 100% sure Shoshanna would HATE it. 



This. Is. Amazing.

Girls fans, consider your days officially made.

A pre-fame music video of Zosia Mamet RAPPING has surfaced and it is just as hilarious as you are imagining.

Everyone who knows and loves Zosia’s character Shoshanna will find it hard to imagine her rapping, but to be fair – she’s not the worst!

You can still see Shoshanna in there though.

This must be how HIMYM Robin felt when Let's got to the Mall was finally exposed…

Or if Marnie's music video had actually been in real life…




Zosia Mamet, AKA the whirlwind that is Shoshanna Shapiro on HBO’s hit series Girls, has followed Lena Dunham’s lead and dyed her hair blonde!

The actress cut her brown locks into a sleek bob back in January, but was obviously inspired by co-star Lena Dunham and decided that blondes really do have more fun! Lena seems to be a fairly easy going individual, so we don’t think the pair will be falling out over their shared hairstyle. Besides, they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

​Zosia isn’t the only Girls actress to get a make-over either. The first photos of Allison Williams playing Peter Pan show her with a VERY short new hair-do!

However, Allison’s new look is (thankfully!) just a wig – though she did say she would cut her hair for the part: “I was all ready to cut my hair, then was told by the folks who actually know what they're doing that a wig works better for everybody. So, December 4th, here we come. #wiglife #peterpanlive #nbc"

Producers of Peter Pan Live! have said that Allison was a “major find” for the role: “She will reinvent the iconic role of Peter Pan with her wit, her warmth, her dynamic flying and her wonderful musical abilities. The score will be sung beautifully and introduced to a whole new generation of families.”

We might just have to tune in – though we’re finding it hard to imagine Allison singing anything other the song from Marnie's cringy music video in Girls!




Zosia Mamet, one of the stars of the hit HBO series Girls, has revealed that she “nearly died” from an eating disorder in her teens.

Her issues started very young, when at eight-years-old someone told her she was fat.

“I’m not fat; I’ve never been fat.” Zosia says. “But ever since then, there has been a monster in my brain that tells me I am – that convinces me my clothes don’t fit or that I’ve eaten too much.”

Her obsession with weight and appearance reached their peak in her teens, as the disorder took over her life.

Zosia unflinchingly details how bad things had become: “ As a teenager I used to stand in front of the refrigerator late at night star­ing into that white fluorescent light, debilitated by the war raging inside me: whether to give in to the pitted hunger in my stomach or close the door and go back to bed,”

“I would stand there for hours, opening and closing the door, taking out a piece of food then putting it back in; taking it out, putting it in my mouth, and then spitting it into the garbage. I was only 17, living in misery, waiting to die.”

It was Zosia’s father, award winning playwright David Mamet who intervened and got her into treatment, saving her life.

He came home one night from a party, took me by the shoulders, and said, ‘You’re not allowed to die.”

This was a wake up call for Zosia. “It was the first time I realised this wasn’t all about me. I didn’t care if I died, but my family did.”

“That’s the thing about these kinds of disorders: They’re consuming; they make you egocentric; they’re all you can see.”

Today Zosia feels she has come to terms with her past issues and is now happy at a healthy weight.

 “It may never disappear completely”, she says, “but hopefully one day it’ll be so quiet, it’ll only be a whisper and I’ll wonder, ‘Was that just the wind?’
