No matter if you lose weight or you get fat, Lena Dunham says “As a Woman in Hollywood You Just Can’t Win”

 

Even if you are the most brilliant woman – as Lena Dunham is, you can’t win

Lena Dunham is an American actress, writer, producer, and director. She has received numerous Emmy award nominations and two Golden Globe awards. She became the first woman to win the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing – Comedy Series and in 2013 she was included in the Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

Can I say that she’s one of the most brilliant women at the moment?

She began writing shorts and feature films and in 2012 she obtained the attention of a wider audience with the HBO series Girls (2012) created by and starring Dunham.

Lena Dunham has long been outspoken about her body, she is not the typical example of the standard beauty, and she doesn’t look like a model. But she never backed down.

“It’s just so crazy because I spent six years of my career being called things like ‘bag of milk’ on the internet—’bag of milk,’ ‘baby cow,’ ‘aging cow.’

No matter if you lose weight or you get fat, Lena Dunham says “As a Woman in Hollywood You Just Can't Win”“I just never felt self-conscious about it. I was like, ‘Anyone who is going to take the time to say something negative about my weight on the Internet isn’t someone I was particularly keen to impress anyway.’ Then I had this experience of my body changing. Suddenly I got all these people saying, ‘You’re a hypocrite. I thought you were body positive. I thought you were a person who embraced body types of all sizes,'” Dunham said. “I do. I just understand that bodies change. We live a long time. Things happen.”

“I’ve accepted that my body is an ever changing organism, not a fixed entity—what goes up must come down and vice versa.”

“My body belongs to ME — at every phase, in every iteration, and whatever I’m doing with it, I’m not handing in my feminist card to anyone”

Dunham added that she’s “proud of what this body has seen and done and represented.”
