Lena Dunham seems to be the spokeswoman for women with curves, as she recently told ‘Playboy’ that she would never want to look like a Victoria’s Secret model. Strong words from a strong lady!
Lena Dunham, the creator and star of HBO’s Girls, recently told the April issue of Playboy magazine that she’d much rather be an ordinary girl. Do you share her body image thoughts?
Lena Dunham Talks Body Image With ‘Playboy’
Lena was quick to mention her thoughts on her body image compared to a model’s, when Playboy asked her, “If you woke up tomorrow in the body of a Victoria’s Secret model, what would you do for the rest of the day?” She said:
“There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with, I don’t want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack. Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier. The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you. It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way and be in public!”
But there must be some silver lining to look absolutely gorgeous, right? She was quick to add that if she had supermodel looks, the one thing she would do would involve food. “I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants!”
What Is Lena Dunham’s Perfect Guy?
When she was asked by Playboy, “What kind of guy has a chance with you?” she responded with,
“When I was younger I liked men who gave me some guff. I liked badasses with hearts of gold, though they often ended up not having a heart of gold. They were a little like the Adam character on Girls. Now I’m much more into someone who is interesting and open with his emotions, has a really good sense of humor and a passion for what he does, wants to hang out with my parents and doesn’t want to stay out too late. If I can get excited imagining funny things he did as a kid, there’s a pretty good chance I’m in love with him. It’s a sad day when you stop believing in the idea of having a soul mate or having someone who understands you deeply and loves you eternally. I’m a pretty unorthodox girl, but I guess people might be surprised to learn that despite what some of the characters on the show are doing, I remain an eternal romantic with a desire to hear all the things girls like to hear said to them.”
Seems like Lena has her head on straight and is a major inspiration to many women, don’t you think?
