Lena Dunham Says She’s Actually a ‘Private Person’
“Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham landed the February cover of Vogue, alongside “Girls” co-star Adam Driver, talking about style, sex and the fact she’s more private than you think.
The actress is a bit like her alter ego, Hannah. "I still go to a party and say something embarrassing to someone, and then write them a weird e-mail about it the next day, and then write them a text because I think they didn't get the e-mail. No matter what happens with your level of success, you still have to deal with all the baggage that is yourself."

As for the hit HBO show’s glammed-down portrayals of sex, Lena said, "There was a sense that I and many women I knew had been led astray by Hollywood and television depictions of sexuality. Seeing somebody who looks like you having sex on television is a less comfortable experience than seeing somebody who looks like nobody you've ever met."
Lena is also way into fashion. "I've always loved Comme des Garçons; I've always loved Yohji Yamamoto. I'm into Charlotte Olympia flats. I really love a Prada bag because they always have one weird detail that you didn't think about. I always wear J Brand jeans because the waist is high… a low-cut jean is a problematic thing for me."
