Lena Dunham lands the latest cover of Glamour Magazine, and she looks great! It’s not nearly as photoshopped as her recent cover of Vogue, which I find refreshing. She’s proud of her body, why not highlight her natural body, and not make her look like someone she’s not? I think the pictures and styling are great, and it’s one of the better photoshoots I’ve seen of her.
On Woody Allen: “I find the most recent revelations about his life really challenging. I hated that Mia Farrow had been bullied because the man she was [splitting up with] was the most powerful cultural figure in New York and therefore nobody wanted to look at his behaviour. I’m grateful to Dylan Farrow for her bravery in speaking out. I’m disappointed that Woody Allen thought discussing his ex’s sexual history and shaming her was an effective strategy in arguing his innocence.”
On her heroes: “I think I want my heroes to embody values I can agree with in their work and life.”
‘Girls’ helped her love her own body: “I think I radicalized my relationship to my own body in order to accept it. To make my body a prop in my work gave it a value I didn’t feel it had before. At the Golden Globes I had a little bit of fat bubbling over, but I love how that looks. It looks so bountiful. It reminded me of corset dramas. They’ll be a point – maybe when I’m pregnant or when I have kids – when I just want to have my body for myself.”
On her boyfriend of two years, Jack Antonoff: “I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like ‘God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bulls—t’. I think women are conditioned to stand by their man and watch them make it to the top, but most men never believe the person they get into a relationship with is going to rise any higher than she was when they met. It takes a very special, evolved person to be able to deal with change within a relationship.”
On her good friend Taylor Swift: “She helps me be stronger and make better decisions.”
