Lena Dunham: College Grads are Struggling to Pay the Rent

Lena Dunham: College Grads are Struggling to Pay the Rent

Lena Dunham sips on a cup of coffee as she arrives on the set of Girls on Thursday (August 8) in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City.

Earlier in the week, the 27-year-old actress spoke at the Young New York Fundraiser in support of NYC Comptroller candidate Scott Stringer.

“[Recent college grads are] struggling to find jobs and pay the rent and if they struggle for too long, they’re leaving New York for other cities, even Tampa,” Lena expressed during her speech (via Capitol). “[Rent was] $350 a month, if they just hid their stove from Con Edison. Now, the building that I was born in houses a Victoria’s Secret and is next door to a Sephora. We can’t have our generation’s Patti Smith moving to Tampa. That’s going to seriously f**k our s**t up.”

    Poor hygiene isn’t feminism. I say the same thing about Jason Segel, so this isn’t a sexist thing. These two unhygienic and unhealthy-looking people need to seriously sign themselves up for a detox. I’ll volunteer my advice on exercise and organic smoothies. You’re welcome.

    Well, if “recent college grads” can’t afford to stay in New York, they should move someplace else. Someone once told me that the best gift for a college graduate is a nice piece of luggage, because they’re probably going to have to relocate to find a job. So, what, move to Tampa….or get a room mate or two if you want to stay in New York. Whiners!
