Lena Dunham Seemingly Responds to Recent Criticism

Lena Dunham did an Instagram Live earlier today where she seemingly addressed various stories about her, including Tessa Thompson‘s comments about her involvement in Time’s Up and her breakup with Jack Antonoff.

While she didn’t name any one situation directly, Lena said, “A lot of people were saying really sweet things to me on my Instagram and wanting to know how I was feeling. The thing that I wanted to say was just that, you know, when you’ve had this job for as long as I have, which is seven or eight years now, and you’ve caused some mayhem at times, the internet doesn’t necessarily have the same power that it used to.”

She continued, “When you’ve had this job for as long as I have, you love and admire and are so grateful for the people who show you care. You feel so much gratitude for the care and passion that’s shown to you by the people who admire your work and the rest of the people kind of melt away, because they’re pixels and you’ve got to know what’s in your own heart.”

“I just feel so lucky that I’ve gotten to be a part of so many amazing moments and movements in my career. And I feel really at peace with the fact that there are moments when you are the hero and moments when you are the villain and moments when you are magic and moments when you are less magic. You know what, it’s a journey that has strengthened me in ways that are really, really powerful,” Lena added.

Lena spoke about how she was wearing a ring given to her by Jack, adding, “I’ll always wear [it] because love is a really cool, eternal powerful, eternal thing. It doesn’t have to be defined the way we, in Western culture, define it — as beginning and ends. Things can be, ‘You’re a drop of water and you reenter the ocean.’”

Tessa Thompson Clarifies Comment About Lena Dunham & Time's Up

Tessa Thompson is clarifying a statement she made about Lena Dunham‘s participation in the Time’s Up movement.

If you don’t know, Tessa posted a photo on Instagram over the weekend of stars including Michelle Williams, Reese Witherspoon, Rashida Jones, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emma Stone, and Lena and thanked them for their participation.

A fan quickly called out the moment that Lena defended an accused man who worked with her on Girls, and Tessa responded, “Lena was not anywhere present in our group during the countless hours of work for the last two months. We hosted an open house for the actresses for red carpet messaging and Lena presence was a surprise to us all. This is a time of reckoning. And for many, a re-education. So many women also have real work to do. I’m afraid it’s too nuanced a conversation to have on this platform. But I hear you, and know that your thoughts and words are not lost on me. It’s been discussed.”

Now, Tessa is clarifying what she wrote.

“I sometimes lack finesse in navigating social media. Hard to discuss issues with nuance there. A response I made to comments on an Instagram became fodder for a piece that I believe was designed to create conflict where there isn’t any. It’s perhaps more complex than that. But I, in no way, want to diminish Lena Dunham and her work, her voice, and her importance. We have spoken and she knows my heart. I feel a responsibility to women that have sometimes felt ignored, dismissed, and underrepresented. They are my beacons. I regret that my words were misinterpreted to distract from the most important thing: The Time’s Up campaign is for everyone, in all capacities, contributions big and small. It doesn’t belong to any one. It is for us all. The beauty of this huge collaboration has been a group of countless committed people who have come together for a shared purpose. To create change. And it is such a powerful thing. I stand, humbled, with everyone involved. Linked not ranked,” Tessa posted in a statement on Twitter.
