Lena Dunham’s Spread in Nylon Magazine

Lena Dunham - Nylon Magazine

Lena Dunham has a quirky spread in Nylon Magazine this month – and the editorial is called ‘Lena Dunham, Nasty As She Wanna Be’.

On how she feels about her body at age 30:

‘For the first time in my career, posing for pictures feels honest and joyful. Maybe that’s being 30. Maybe that’s demanding to be seen for who I am, teensy stomach moles on pale rounded stomach and all’

On not caring what people say about her anymore:

‘The older I get, the more I’m like, ”I don’t f**king know what anybody is seeing when they look at me,” and the coolest thing is it’s not my problem. That’s an interesting thing. It kind of doesn’t matter. I used to think the worst thing in the world could be for someone to have a thought about you that you didn’t have yourself. Now I’m like, ”Have at it, guys!”

Lena Dunham Is Glad Glamour Did Not Photoshop Her Thigh Cellulite

lena-dunham-cellulite - Lena Dunham Is Glad Glamour Did Not Photoshop Her Thigh Cellulite

30 year-old Lena Dunham is extra happy this week – the reason? She appears on the cover of Glamour Magazine, together with the other three Girls… and her thigh cellulite! The star shared her views on body image in a long post on Instagram this week:

Okay, here goes: throughout my teens I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was fucking funny looking. Potbelly, rabbit teeth, knock knees- I could never seem to get it right and it haunted my every move. I posed as the sassy confident one, secretly horrified and hurt by careless comments and hostility. Let’s get something straight: I didn’t hate what I looked like- I hated the culture that was telling me to hate it. When my career started, some people celebrated my look but always through the lens of “isn’t she brave? Isn’t it such a bold move to show THAT body on TV?” Then there were the legions of trolls who made high school teasing look like a damned joke with the violent threats they heaped on, the sickening insults that made me ache for teen girls like me who might be reading my comments. Well, today this body is on the cover of a magazine that millions of women will read, without photoshop, my thigh on full imperfect display. Whether you agree with my politics, like my show or connect to what I do, it doesn’t matter- my body isn’t fair game. No one’s is, no matter their size, color, gender identity, and there’s a place for us all in popular culture to be recognized as beautiful. Haters are gonna have to get more intellectual and creative with their disses in 2017 because none of us are going to be scared into muumuus by faceless basement dwellers, or cruel blogs, or even our partners and friends. Thank you to the women in Hollywood (and on Instagram!) leading the way, inspiring and normalizing the female form in EVERY form, and thank you to @glamourmag for letting my cellulite do the damn thing on news stands everywhere today ❤️ Love you all.

Lena Dunham: “There was a real solid moment where I was like, ‘I’m repulsive.’”

lena-refinery291 - Lena Dunham: "There was a real solid moment where I was like, ‘I’m repulsive.’"

On beauty and body image in her younger years:

“High school was really hard for me. I have OCD, so I was totally, mentally just spinning out. I had gained a ton of weight really quickly and not grown taller at all. I had acne. I went to a chic, private school where lots of girls looked beautiful and toned and had glossy hair and Prada shoes, and that wasn’t my reality. There was a real solid moment where I was like, ‘I’m repulsive.’ I think feeling those feelings and coming out the other end, realizing I don’t have to be the prettiest person here to have value or to have say — that really stuck with me.”

… says Lena.
