Jemima Kirke is just like us — if only we were cooler and more bohemian, occupied an entire Brooklyn brownstone and tattooed our Shabbat guests.

In the March 10 issue of New York Magazine, the “Girls” star gives us a peek into her life, which includes making art, being a mom, getting groped by her cute, “high-end” rehab-building husband Michael Mosberg, and — yes — challah.

“We do Shabbat sometimes. Mike went to Yeshiva law school. He’s super-Jew and super-corporate. That’s why I was so attracted to him when I met him: the contradiction,” says the actress, whose mother is of Israeli and Iraqi descent.

The next shot features Mosberg in a yarmulke, and in the one after that Kirke is administering that after-dinner tattoo, which is obviously the hipster version of Birkat Hamazon.
