Girls star Lena Dunham opens up about relationship with fun.’s Jack Antonoff
She’s open and outrageously honest in her hit show ‘Girls’ and it seems that in real life Lena Dunham is no different, revealing she’s got no problem talking publicly about her relationship with boyfriend Jack Antonoff.
The Golden Globe-winning starlet and the fun. guitarist were first rumoured to be dating back in September, but as far as keeping quiet about her love life now, Lena dishes that she sees no need to stay private.
“I'm totally fine to state his name: it's Jack Antonoff,” she told Interview magazine.
“I know there's some rule that you're not supposed to talk about your boyfriend publicly 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."
“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?’” continued the star.
Dunham, who picked up two awards at the Golden Globes earlier this week, also admitted that Antonoff is the first man she’s dated that doesn’t have any qualms about the fact that she gets excited about working!
“I thought that I would eventually find someone who got it when I was older,” she revealed.
“But I was always like, 'Well, this is going to be my fate for a while'.
“It's not really an acceptable position these days to say out loud, 'I don't want my girlfriend to work that much', so when you date someone, it comes out in a thousand other, even more nefarious ways,” the actress continued.
“I almost respect it more when some guy is like, 'Listen, I know this is completely rude, but I just grew up thinking that I was going to have a girlfriend who was going to hang around and be there, so I respect what you're doing, but please go on your merry way'. Then at least you'd have something to work with.”
