Lena Dunham Cancels 'Girls' Press Due to Health Concerns: 'It's Time to Rest'

Lena Dunham has just told her fans that due to health concerns, she has been forced to pull out of her Girls press obligations for season six.

The 29-year-old actress informed her fans of the news via an Instagram post.

“As many of you know I have endometriosis, a chronic condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women’s reproductive health. I am currently going through a rough patch with the illness and my body (along with my amazing doctors) let me know, in no uncertain terms, that it’s time to rest,” Lena wrote.

We are wishing Lena all the best and hope she is okay!

Hey Beloved Pals,

I just wanted to let you know that, while I am so excited for Girls to return on Feb 21, I won’t be out and about doing press for the new season. As many of you know I have endometriosis, a chronic condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women’s reproductive health. I am currently going through a rough patch with the illness and my body (along with my amazing doctors) let me know, in no uncertain terms, that it’s time to rest. That’s a hard thing to do, but I’m trying, because all I want is to make season 6 of Girls the best one yet. I’m lucky enough to have support and backup from Jenni, Judd and the whole Girls gang. So many women with this disease literally don’t have the option of time off and I won’t take it for granted.
Wishing you all health & happiness, in whatever form suits you.
Back soon
