Lena Dunham Transforms Into a Statue for 'NYT Magazine'

Lena Dunham is transformed into the bust of a statue for the cover of The New York Times Magazine‘s latest issue.

Here is what the 28-year-old Girls actress had to share with the mag:

On Gawker leaking book excerpts in December 2012: “They posted it with a list of 72 reasons I was the dumbest human on earth. It felt like such a violation to put my unedited work out into the world. As a writer, there is nothing more violating. I would rather walk down the street naked — no surprise — than to have someone read my unedited work.” (There actually was no list published)

On her boyfriend Jack Antonoff: “When I met Jack, I said to my mom, ‘I met this guy, and he’s obsessed with dying, too, and he lives in his parents’ house!’”

On big career moments: “I think there’s a part of my parents and a part of me that is consistently excited and surprised that I am in any way functional. I’ve had a lot of moments in my career where I’ve had to just say, ‘I’m picking my jaw up off the floor and carrying on,’ Because you don’t get much work done with your jaw on the floor.”

Lena Dunham Honors Joan Rivers with a Plastic Surgery Joke

Lena Dunham attends the celebration of Betty Halbreich‘s new memoir “I’ll Drink to That: A Life in Style with a Twist” on Thursday (September 4) in New York City.

The 28-year-old Girls actress took to her Twitter account that day to honor the late Joan Rivers by making a joke about plastic surgery.

“Watching Joan Rivers do standup at age 81 was incredible: athletic, jaw-dropping, terrifying, essential. It never stopped. Neither will she… I told Maron I’d have a zinger when Joan died. But I didn’t think she ever would. She felt eternal, and anyway, zingers are her territory,” she tweeted.

“That being said, Joan is gone but a piece of her lives on: her nose, because it’s made of polyurethane,” Lena added.

Later that night Lena wrote another tweet responding to criticism for joking about the comedienne on the day of her death.

“Just gonna assume everyone telling me I’m ugly on twitter tonight is commemorating Joan Rivers and therefore I love you all,” Lena said.

Lena Dunham Weighs In on the Nude Photo Hacking Scandal

Lena Dunham is speaking out to show her support for the women involved in the major nude photo hacking scandal and to advise the public not to look at the pictures.

“The way in which you share your body must be a CHOICE. Support these women and do not look at these pictures,” the 28-year-old Girls actress wrote on her Twitter account. “Remember, when you look at these pictures you are violating these women again and again. It’s not okay. Seriously, do not forget that the person who stole these pictures and leaked them is not a hacker: they’re a sex offender.”

She later added, “Also sad I can’t make one joke about having shown my tits on purpose without a massive qualitative tit debate. Some of y’all, dang. The ‘don’t take naked pics if you don’t want them online’ argument is the ‘she was wearing a short skirt’ of the web. Ugh.”
