Lena Dunham is an American filmmaker and actress. She wrote and directed the independent film "Tiny Furniture," and is the creator and star of the HBO series "Girls." In 2012, she was nominated for 4 Emmy Awards for "Girls."
She's an award-winning actress and celebrated author, but Lena Dunham's success didn't come without the influence of other accomplished women.
In Glamour's March 2015 issue, the "Girls" creator and star discusses the 10 women who inspire her the most, including co-executive producer of the show Jenni Konner, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, and transgender activist CeCe McDonald.
She’s always up for a good time, and last night (January 8) Lena Dunham paid a visit to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for some serious fun.
Before long, the “Girls” actress found herself in the middle of one of Fallon’s crazy games and she actually did quite well. Jimmy pulled out the Pictionary set and incited announcer Steve Higgins and “Whiplash” star JK Simmons to play as well, and Lena and Steve quickly emerged the victors.
Everyone seems to have an opinion of Lena Dunham these days, and the controversial actress/author just landed on the cover of the February 2015 issue of Elle magazine.
The “Girls” star chats about her philosophy when it comes to coping with being famous-“I realized early on that I was not going to be able to have a comfortable relationship with celebrity if I didn’t feel like I was using it to talk about things that were important to me.”
“Speaking out was never about exposing the man who assaulted me. Rather, it was about exposing my shame, letting it dry out in the sun. I did not wish to be contacted by him or to open a criminal investigation.”
It’s going to be an exciting New Year, as “Girls” is poised to make a big return on January 11th, 2015. And to keep the hype building, HBO has just unveiled a new preview trailer that’s as inspiring as it is dramatic.
The sixty-second clip establishes that Season 4 will continue along the same lines as previous storylines, including plenty of relationship dynamics. It seems Marnie is dating a musician, Shoshanna is still pining for Ray and Hannah is all about planning her future with Adam.
