Jemima Kirke blames her divorce on her acting career.

The 'Girls' star ended her marriage to Michael Mosberg last summer after seven years of marriage as she began looking at her life in a different way.

She said: ''I got divorced, and I attribute that to acting. And just asking myself, 'Is this really me?' So much of my life has been about reaction, just following the flow rather than making a strong choice.

''In acting you are always asking yourself why you do things, why you make the choices you make. Everything means something. And so then you start looking at your own life in that way. I've learnt a lot more about myself and started to figure out what I really want.''

And the 31-year-old actress insists she isn't bothered about being likeable.

She added: ''It is important, I think, that people allow themselves to have opinions and to not be so f***ing likeable. Everyone is so precious and so safe with the things they say; everyone's so scared of being slammed and judged. I'm just not.''

Meanwhile, Jemima admits feeling very emotional when she wrapped filming for the television series.

She added to this week's issue of ES Magazine: ''I am not at all sentimental, and on the last day of filming, I was like, 'Oh God, do I have to hug everyone?'

''But after my very last scene I went back to my dressing room and I was like, 'Oh s**t, I think I'm going to cry.' Because it actually did mean something to me that it was over - my life has changed so much because of it.''
