After a magazine paired a picture of Lena Dunham next to a feature about “diet tips” on its cover, the Girls star had something to say about it.
Now, we know that Lena Dunham isn’t afraid to speak her mind, especially when it comes to her body and feeling comfortable in her own skin. The 30-year-old writer, actor, and producer has been known to speak out when she’s been shamed for her fashion choices or her body and has insisted on appearing on the cover of magazines without any photoshop work being done. All of these are reasons why she’s totally an inspiration to us, and we couldn’t applaud her more for living her life the way she wants to.
So, when a picture of Lena Dunham appeared next to headline about “diet tips” on the cover of a magazine, the star took to Instagram to talk about what “diet tips” really mean for her.
The cover alludes to the fact that Lena has been on her own weight loss journey, but in a lengthy post the star shared the magazine cover alongside 20 of her own tips for “dieting.”
The star mentions her ongoing experiences with anxiety and the “resultant constant nausea,” before going on to discuss issues like the presidential election result, constant trolling and threats online, “watching institutions you love from Planned Parenthood to PBS be threatened by cartoon mustache-twirling villains,” “worrying ceaselessly about the health and safety of women you know and women you don’t,” and even having her phone number leaked online.
