The breakout funny woman hammed it up with the quirky SNL star, declaring they were “two young feminists” and discussing Dunham’s popular comedy. 

“I would love to be on the show one day,” McKinnon said of Girls. “I don’t need to have a big part, I could just be a character who moves in with Hannah and follows her around and does everything with her.”

“What if I was just a person who killed Hannah and lived as her?” she quipped. 

In another cut, McKinnon goes topless on camera with a blurred-out censor over her boobs, complaining that Dunham had said they were “going to wear the same outfit.”
