Lena on beginning to date her boyfriend Jack Antonoff (of the band fun. And Bleachers) right after Girls debuted…

“The dialogue around the show already existed, so it was sort of clear to him what the baggage of dating me was going to be. I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, ‘God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bullsh-t.’ It’s funny, ’cause in some ways that’s the conversation we still have when I’m upset [about stuff I read].”

 

Lena on her beauty point of view…

“I feel prettier with a naked face and ChapStick. But a good haircut makes a huge difference.”

Lena appears on the cover of Glamour’s April issue, on newsstands nationwide on March 18 and available now digitally at glamour.com/app.

 

 

Lena on acting in the future…

“I don’t know if I’m going to want to act anymore. I’m always relieved on the days I don’t have to. I’d rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts.”

  

Lena on her artistic choices on Girls

“I want you to feel like you are getting lost with these characters. So I write long scenes. TV feels the least like life when it’s like two seconds here, then ‘meanwhile at this person’s house.’ I wanted to make a show that wasn’t as bright as other shows….I’ve always been incredibly attracted to pictures of my parents [the artists Laurie Simmons and Carroll Dunham] in the 1970s. That aged photograph palette seems to give an importance to their twenties. So I was like, I’d like to make something that shows my twenties through that beautiful soft-focus lens. Also, I get very fetishistic when I’m shooting the girls—especially Jemima.”
