Lena Dunham Makes London Fashion Week Debut For 16Arlington

Lena Dunham hits the runway in a chic short dress for the 16Arlington show during 2020 London Fashion Week on Friday (February 14) in London, England.

The 33-year-old entertainer was just one of the women who are “doing something positive in the world”.

Designer Marco Capaldo shared that “for us it’s about working with women who really inspire us on a daily basis, and what sets these girls apart is that they’re all doing something positive in the world and changing it for the better” with Evening Standard.

He also added that Lena was one of the people they wanted to be in the show.

“[She's] really passionate about fashion but has fun with it – and that’s how we feel about it too. We always knew that once we were confirmed for the show schedule that she’d be the person we’d ask, and when we did she was so excited.”

Lena Dunham Says Joaquin Phoenix's Oscars 2020 Speech Made Her Vegan

Joaquin Phoenix made an impassioned acceptance speech at the 2020 Oscars last night where he spoke about a wide range of topics including veganism, social justice, and more.

In his speech, Joaquin said, “We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and when she gives birth, we steal her baby. Even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal. And I think we fear the idea of personal change because we think that we have to sacrifice something to give something up but human beings, at our best, are so inventive and creative and ingenious, and I think that when we use love and compassion as our guiding principles, we can create, develop, and implement systems of change that are beneficial to all sentient beings and to the environment.”

Lena Dunham took to Twitter after watching Joaquin‘s speech and tweeted, “Welp, it finally happened- I do believe Joaquin Phoenix made me vegan.”

Find out which celebs used to be vegan and actually quit for a variety of reasons.

Lena Dunham Calls The Past Year 'Complex' In Year End Instagram

Lena Dunham is revealing all the lessons she’s learned in a new Instagram post while gearing up for 2020.

The 33-year-old entertainer shared a pic of herself in her underwear for the post, sharing with fans that “this year has been complex and awesome and awesomely complex.”

Lena continues, “It’s been the best professional year of my life – not because I’m on a million magazine covers or making gossip waves but because I’m quietly doing what I love with people I love who also love doing it.”

Here are just some of the lessons she’s learned over the years: “go slower than you think you should because it ultimately adds up to more, you don’t have to push you can just move ahead with passion, people will come and go and surprise you and often their rejection is God’s protection (it also sometimes has nothing to do with you), and sometimes you heal slowly and then all at once.”

Ruth Wilson's Exit From 'The Affair' Explained in Bombshell Report

Shocking allegations are coming to light about why Ruth Wilson really left the hit Showtime show The Affair after winning a Golden Globe for her work in the drama back in 2015.

Last summer, Ruth shocked everyone when she announced she was leaving the show before the fifth and final season, but could not say why. She presumably has a non disclosure agreement in place with the network.

Now, THR is revealing that she left the show due to “ongoing frustrations with the nudity required of her,” and “what she ultimately felt was a hostile work environment,’ among issues with the showrunner, Sarah Treem.

“There was a culture problem at the show from the very beginning and a tone-deafness from Sarah Treem about recognizing the position she was putting actors in,” a source said. “Over and over again, I witnessed Sarah Treem try to cajole actors to get naked even if they were uncomfortable or not contractually obligated to.”

“I would never say those things to an actor. That’s not who I am. I am not a manipulative person, and I’ve always been a feminist,” Sarah said in response to the allegations. “I have devoted my entire professional life to writing about and speaking to women’s issues, women’s causes, women’s empowerment and creating strong, complex roles for women in theater and in Hollywood, on- and offscreen. It’s what I think about, what I care about, it’s what drives my life and work. The reason I even created The Affair was to illuminate how the female experience of moving through the world is so different from the male one, it’s like speaking a second language. The idea that I would ever cultivate an unsafe environment or harass a woman on one of my shows is utterly ridiculous and lacks a grounding in reality.”

Apparently men on set would also say things to women like “Everyone is waiting for you,” or “You look beautiful…It’s things you would think would be coming out of a man’s mouth from the 1950s. The environment was very toxic.” In addition, while filming scenes that required being in the buff, “There sometimes were people there who didn’t need to be, or the monitor was in plain view.”

There were specific instances that made Ruth uncomfortable, like one sex scene that was “rapey,” said one source. When Ruth would bring up issues, she was apparently labeled as being “difficult.”

Then, an incident happened while filming in Montauk, New York that made cast members uncomfortable…and GirlsLena Dunham is involved.

It all started when Lena Dunham, Girls cast members, and The Affair executive producer and director Jeffrey Reiner happened to run into each other in the Hamptons town.

Sources say that Jeffrey asked Lena if she would go to dinner with Ruth to try and get her to “show her t*ts, or at least some vag,” and then he apparently went on to “critique and crudely evaluate the bodies of all the women on his show.”

Apparently, Jeffrey also showed Lena a photo of “a mutual friend with a c*ck next to her face,” which sources say was Maura Tierney, another actress on The Affair. This encounter was all documented on Lena and Jenni Konner‘s now shuttered website Lenny Letter.

After this encounter happened and news spread about it, THR says that Ruth and Maura both “expressed discomfort about continuing to work with Reiner.” He eventually was told he could no longer direct episodes with Ruth. He ended up leaving the show after the third season, and Ruth left as well and this is the incident that she was able to use to negotiate her exit.

Lena Dunham Explains Why She's Been Photographed Using a Cane

Lena Dunham was photographed using a cane to help her to her ride and she’s explaining that she is having an Ehler-Danlos syndrome flare.

“I could choose to be embarrassed by these paparazzi pics- I mean, that’s probably the point of someone publishing them in the first place- but I’m really not. I could lie and say it was an early Halloween look (Don’t you get it? I’m going as a con woman leaving a Florida Keys jail after being acquitted of murdering her husband, and now she’s trying to get disability license plates.),” Lena wrote when she posted the photo on her Instagram account.

Lena continued, “But the truth is just: This is what life is like when I’m struggling most with chronic illness. An Ehler-Danlos syndrome flare means that I need support from more than just my friends… so thank you, sweet cane! For years, I resisted doing anything that would make my physical situation easier, insisting that a cane would “make things weird.” But it’s so much less weird to actually be able to participate than to stay in bed all day. And yes, you’d better believe I’m wearing my nightgown. I was walking four feet to the car to go to the doctor and I wanted to be full cozy. I mean, didn’t Bieber wear hotel slippers for like five years? Yeah, so I can wear my glamour nighty for two hours. And then an hour later, I’m in a meeting look tackling the job I love. That’s the two-fold life of a woman with chronic illness; we still rock our dreams and goals and passions (and fashions) and we live many lives in one day. Tell me about your day!”

According to reports, “Ehlers-Danlos syndromes are a group of connective tissue disorders that can be inherited and are varied both in how they affect the body and in their genetic causes. They are generally characterized by joint hypermobility (joints that stretch further than normal), skin hyperextensibility (skin that can be stretched further than normal), and tissue fragility.”

Lena has been very open about her health struggles and surgeries in the past.

We hope Lena Dunham is feeling better soon!
