Lena Dunham has been fighting two very public battles in her life. She’s been fighting (and oftentimes losing) against the urge to say shit she’ll later regret, and complications from endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition where the layer of tissue that usually covers the inside of the uterus grows outside of it. It has put her in the hospital multiple times, like during last year’s Met Gala. Endometriosis was causing a ton of problems for Lena, and so she made the decision to have a hysterectomy at 31.
Based on her last couple of IMDB credits, I was starting to think that Jennifer Garner had told her agent: “From now on, please only bring me movie scripts where my kid sees an angel or my character throws her phone in a fountain after learning the true meaning of family.” But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Garner is going back to television. And I’m sorry Sydney Bristow fans, it’s not for a show called Alias: More Aliases.
Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff of Fun. and Bleachers fame officially broke up this week after five years of him having to deal with her broadcasting every thought in her head to the dismay of many. In a related story, Dlisted’s own Allison may have been revealed to be a powerful psychic, because she guessed that the “musician” that Jack might be currently dating is his new favorite artist – interpretive dancing queen Lorde. He produced her latest record. Allison, we’re not going to need you to cough up the Powerball numbers now. Thank you. Continue reading
On Tuesday Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff let everyone know that they had called it quits after five and a half years of dating. And apparently about five and a half five seconds after they called it quits, Jack moved on.
After more than five together, Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff have reportedly called it quits. If this breakup news had happened a year ago, this would be where I might wonder who gets custody of Lamby Antonoff. But we all know that ain’t going to be an issue.
If you need to know how Lena Dunham is feeling today, my guess is about a shade or two more “oh fuck” than the face she’s making in that picture. It’s exhausting trying to disassociate yourself from a former colleague/current alleged rapist when they keep making the news.
Last month, actress Aurora Perrineau filed a police report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department accusing former Girls writer Murray Miller of raping her when she was 17. She reportedly passed a lie-detector test. Murray denied everything. After Aurora’s rape story was reported, Lena Dunham threw her whole “believe all women” mantra out the window and jumped to Murray’s defense. Both Lena and her Girls co-showrunner Jenni Konner released statements implying Aurora was lying. Lena later backtracked with an apology and an excuse about defending the type of people who fill her “world with love.” According to Variety, Murray might have also been filling Lena’s world with bullshit. When Aurora’s story broke, Murray’s lawyers released a statement accusing her of attempting to scam him for a “substantial” amount of hush money before she went to the police. Lawyers for Murray have since backtracked on that.
