'Girls' Star Talks Boys (PHOTOS)
Lena Dunham is in love with musician Jack Antonoff -- and wants everyone to know it.
Lena Dunham, the uber-popular writer, director and star of Girls, is in love with her boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff -- and she isn't afraid to say it.
"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," the 26-year-old actress -- who won two Golden Globes on Sunday -- told Interview magazine in its February issue. "But if you’re in love with someone great, then I don’t understand why you wouldn’t tell everybody.”
"I mean, I’ve always been a big ‘I love you’ sayer and stuff," she continued. "But then I worry. Jack once overheard me calling someone else ‘baby bug,’ or some stupid name that I’ve called him before. I was like, ‘What if he now thinks I’m just a big disingenuous piece of crap?’ That kind of thing gives me anxiety because I want everyone I love to know how much I love them."
The last year or so has been pretty good for Dunham, who rose to fame in 2010 after the release of her indie smash, Tiny Furniture. In addition to Girls, which just had its second season premiere on Sunday, she recently signed a book deal worth a reported $3.7 million.
"I didn’t feel like the other kids got me, but then I was also sort of bored and annoyed by them, so I knew that a large part of it was my problem. I actually had to switch schools because I didn’t have friends," she said.
