You read that right, fashion darlings–the cutest guy on Girls is dunzo. Or would that be gonezo? Regardless of your choice in adjectives, Christopher Abbott, also known as
Allison Williams‘ Marnie’s adorable off-again-on-again boyfriend Charlie, has decided to leave the show. Sob! (Don’t worry–we’ve packed this post full of his photos to help console you.)
How could this happen?! According to reports from the The Post’s “Page 6”, Abbott had some…creative differences with the show’s creator and lead, Lena Dunham. While their source claims Chris and Lena are “at odds” with Chris not liking the direction that the show is going in. Christopher’s rep, however, spins his departure into little more than a case of a packed schedule, stating that he is grateful for the experience and collaboration with both Lena and Juddapatow, but that “right now [Chris] is working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show.” BUMMER.
I’m taking Chris’ exit from the show particularly tough, especially because he had just gotten into his whole hot app developer phase…I love a hot developer. Sigh. I guess it’s time we kiss those skinny suits, perfect hair, and beautiful beard-covered face goodbye…At least on the set of Girls. So, so tragic. Fingers crossed he gets a ton of new work so we can continue to stare at him.
What do you all think of Christopher’s decision to leave Girls? Who’s going to be the hot guy on the cast now? WHO IS MARNIE GOING TO HAVE THOSE BROWN BABIES SHE YEARNS FOR WITH?!? Omg you guys. I can’t even.
