Lena Dunham Praises Bruce Jenner For Interview: ‘An Incredibly Powerful Move’

“I think it’s an incredibly powerful and brave move to disclose anything about your gender identity or sexuality in such a judgmental society,” Lena told EXCLUSIVELY “The interview is going to mean a lot to a lot of young people, no matter what Bruce chooses to disclose.”

Lena has always been open about her support for the LGBT community, so it’s no surprise that she’s chosen to openly be so supportive of Bruce as he goes through this major life change.

And, yes, she also confirmed to us that she’ll be tuning in for the interview, as well! We’re with you, girl!

“We are watching it together as a family,” Kim told EXCLUSIVELY. “I’m going to rush home after this amazing event and catch a flight to L.A. so we can all watch it together.”

Even Kris Jenner, 59, is attending the family viewing party, even though she filed for divorce from Bruce last year.
