Lena Dunham and Melissa McCarthy played a rousing game of “Heads Up!” on Monday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” teaming up to act out clues like “volleyball” and “chest bump” and “earthquake.”

The ladies also discussed the rumors swirling around the recently announced all-female Ghostbusters reboot, addressing speculation that one or both of them will appear in the Paul Feig-directed movie.

It was Dunham’s first appearance on the show, and she also talked to DeGeneres about getting naked on television and feeling comfortable with such public nudity.

“I feel as though that’s just not my personal zone of terror,” explained the “Girls” star. “There are so many things that I would be afraid to do, like hike Mount Kilimanjaro or go to a Crossfit gym. Talk to Charlie Sheen.”

Something that does scare the native New Yorker is driving. Dunham told DeGeneres the story of her “harrowing” driving lessons (which lasted for six months) and how it didn’t exactly encourage her to get behind the wheel in the future.

“I feel like not everyone is supposed to be a mother, and not everyone is supposed to drive,” she explained.
