Girls creator and recent Golden Globe winner Lena Dunham is dishing about her boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, in a new interview.
Dunham, whose character Hannah Horvath on the hit HBO show is usually unlucky in the dating department, calls her boyfriend her “best advertisement.”
"I know there's some rule that you're not supposed to talk about your boyfriend publicly just because it seems like all starlets under the age of 33 have decided not to do that, but if you're in love with someone great, then I don't understand why you wouldn't tell everybody,” she says in the February issue of Interview magazine.
She continued "You don't have to post naked pictures of them on the internet or Tweet pictures of your Christmas celebration, but I feel like, in a way, he's my best advertisement, so I'm like, 'Why would I not tell people who ask?'”
Dunham went on to say about her relatively new fame, "I've started to get used to people feeling like they already know me when they meet me. I've obviously only experienced it within the past year of my life, but it's really interesting to have so many people who you're not familiar with act familiar with you.”
People reports that she also admitted "I think I'd aligned the idea of liking [acting] with having a horrible ego or something, and admitting that I liked it or that it was important to me – even to myself – just didn't feel okay."
