hello stranger

That part in Closer where Alice/Jane tells Larry,
"lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off... but it's better if you do."

I think I get it now!
At first I wasn't totally sure if she was just saying that spinning tall tales is totally a big hoot, or it's just something to do to pass the time until nakedness happens... 
I guess I'd be super jaded too, becoming a stripper at 24. 

I do believe she omitted "... with Clive Owen" after the statement however.

I don't know why I thought of this scene after 3 in the morning, but at the same time maybe I know exactly. And it isn't as much fun when you're lying to yourself.
