This is the story of when Lena Dunham met Odell Beckham Jr. The self-proclaimed feminist is PISSED that the NFL superstar didn’t want to ‘f— her’ the night of the 2016 Met Gala. However, she’s now being slammed for being an anti-feminist because why would a feminist complain about such a thing? Read all the details here.
When you think of Odell Beckham Jr., 23, and Lena Dunham, 30, you don’t exactly envision a DREAM couple. Still, the actress wishes the NFL player would have paid a little more attention to her the night of this year’s Met Gala, especially since they were seated at the SAME table! “He looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards,” confessed Lena in an interview with Amy Schumer, referring to her slightly thick frame. “The vibe was very much like, ‘Do I want to f–k it? Is it wearing a … yep, it’s wearing a tuxedo.'”
Sorry, Lena, but do you MAYBE think it’s because he had never heard of you before? It’s not like Odell watches Girls in his spare time. You guys run in COMPLETELY different circles. Also, it’s kind of odd that Lena would be so offended by Odell’s simplistic reaction, adding that he went “back to his cell phone” after seeing her. Lena is a self-proclaimed feminist, who doesn’t define herself according to men’s standards, so why does she care what Odell thinks of her? Sure, it wasn’t the friendliest encounter, but it’s not like he was being openly mean about her weight.
The Emmy-award winner is known for her self-deprecating sense of humor, which is hilariously written into every episode of Girls, so she was probably just joking around with Amy and poking fun at herself. Even though Lena is a little larger than most Hollywood actresses, she OOZES with confidence, which is why we love her! Lena and her co-star, Jemima Kirke, posed for an UN-RETOUCHED photoshoot wearing nothing but skimpy lingerie on Aug. 24. The sultry photos are part of body-positive movement called, “The Lonely Girls Project.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think Odell was thinking when he saw Lena?
