Now that Girls has wrapped, Lena Dunham is considering being a “crystal expert. Well, she was considering it. After six seasons of creating and starring on Girls, Dunham admits she didn’t know what was next in a new interview for Nylon.
The 30-year-old star is a fierce female if we’ve ever seen one, but even she has a fear of the unknown. As Nylon magazine’s February cover girl, Dunham opened up about her fear of what’s to come after Girls airs its final season this spring, and her choices are hilarious.
“I had a psychotic moment where I was like, ‘I’m going to become a wildlife rehabilitator and a crystal expert,'” Dunham told Nylon.
“My boyfriend [Jack Antonoff] was like, ‘No, you’re not,'” she continued. “I’m like, ‘I’m going to rehabilitate squirrels and owls. And I’m going to educate myself so that I can do crystal healings.’ He was like ‘Good luck with that.'”
Dunham has decided against completely changing her occupation and has instead focused on promoting the last season of her HBO series and running her Lenny Letter newsletter.
“I’m probably going to have a nervous crying breakdown,” the New York native revealed about actually having to say goodbye to the show once it’s done airing.
She then talked about the last season of Girls and what fans have to look forward to. “It’s going to be interesting promoting this show right after Trump is inaugurated,” she said.
“The final season definitely tackles some topics that are complicated and wouldn’t be beloved by the incoming administration,” she added. “Hopefully it’ll bring up important conversations, and not just become the worst Twitter abuse storm in history — or it will.”
No matter what anyone thinks of Season 6, Dunham plans to defend her work until the very end.
“I know I’m never going to have another work experience like this,” the actress explained. “Eight years of working on a project; it’s this living, breathing organism, but it’s also the luckiest thing.”
Girls returns to HBO on February 12th, 2017, so don’t forget to watch the beginning of the end!
