Lena Dunham quotes

Jul 09 2017 - Women

I like being a woman who's not typical Hollywood size putting beautiful designer things out into the world.feedback

Jul 09 2017

The clothes for me brought back a lot. I was like, There's a paparazzi picture of me eating a quesadilla in that!' I don't want to remember, but there it is.feedback

Jul 09 2017 - Women

If you had told me six years ago that we would be in the place we are now, I would have said that you were crazy. And now, The Handmaid's Tale' just seems too real. It's a very, very challenging moment to be a woman in America. Planned Parenthood's never been more essential. The work that I've done with them has really become front and center to my life, really as important to me as my art in a lot of ways.feedback

Jul 08 2017

Lamby suffered terrible abuse as a pup that made having him in a typical home environment dangerous to him and others.feedback

Jul 07 2017

After countless hours of training, endless financial support and a lot of tears he was given access to a better life. I still support him financially and I'll always be there for him in every way but he's notably happier in his new surroundings. Why should this story be subject to scrutiny and anger? It is willfully misunderstanding the truth.feedback

Jul 07 2017

Why should this story be subject to scrutiny and anger? It is willfully misunderstanding the truth. I hope those judging can imagine the incredible pain of letting go of your favorite creature on EARTH because you know you can't help them be healthy and happy.feedback

Jul 07 2017

The first few nights I have him, it's just us two, and he's perfect. Quiet, limp as a sack of laundry, he kisses me softly whenever he has the chance.feedback

Jun 24 2017

A drunk guy did it. It's not great. I should get it covered up.feedback

Jun 21 2017

It can require patience, diligence and often a financial contribution but there are solutions that leave everyone happy and safe. You will always have been your dog's first stop outside shelter life and that's beautiful.feedback

Jun 17 2017

My heart is with every survivor reliving the erasure of their own experience today. I see you. I love you. P.S. It's okay to check out of the news and honor yourself today. Do whatever you need to feel whole.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Sexual harassment

Bill Cosby's trial is about much more than Bill Cosby. When women see justice served, their own fear & trauma are eased. When they don't, survivors of sexual assault have to watch every day as the legal system calls them liars and denies their truth. It is an unimaginable grind.feedback

Jun 16 2017

I performed the insult so no one else could. I don't regret any of it- that's my art and that was my truth- but now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people's perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh and laying out like a Suicide Girl circa 2004. Love it all.feedback

Jun 16 2017

After being told I was endometriosis-free after my last procedure, more disease was found in deeper spots that required immediate surgery and now physical therapy. This disease is wily and unrelenting, and I'm really blessed to have a community, both online and IRL, who let me express how hard that is.feedback

Jun 16 2017

My body, which I've worked through all kinds of pain for many years, just doesn't have what it takes to do this tour. Lenny is about giving 100 percent of ourselves, 100 percent of the time, and I couldn't bear to limp through this.feedback

Jun 09 2017

They're helping make the tampon dialogue more open than it was 16 years ago. I also love that @lola has our backs for all our firsts, whether it's your period, childbirth or some grand formal occasion where you're bleeding unjustly. Let's do this right.feedback

Jun 09 2017

We booked it home – never moved that fast before or since – and he handed me a tampon that was older than I was (my mom was already menopausal at this point) and tried to explain it to me through a crack in the door. 'Up and…back?' I wept and shrieked and called all of my aunts AND my friend Harris's mom on the cordless phone.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - AT&T

My first reaction was, naturally, that I had peed myself a whole bunch. When I realized it was blood I shrieked wildly – my first suspicion is always fatal injury – as my father looked at me, misty-eyed. This, this mountain, is where we were the moment you became a woman. In many cultures you'd have to start birthing children now.feedback

May 19 2017

Thank you for all the love & concern that's been pouring in since Tuesday. Although I'm much healthier than I was a year ago, complications arose from my most recent endometriosis surgery.feedback

May 19 2017

After being told I was endometriosis-free after my last procedure, more disease was found in deeper spots that required immediate surgery and now physical therapy. This disease is wily and unrelenting, and I'm really blessed to have a community, both online and IRL, who let me express how hard that is. My body, which I've worked through all kinds of pain for many years, just doesn't have what it takes to do this tour. Lenny is about giving 100 percent of ourselves, 100 percent of the time, and I couldn't bear to limp through this. We hope to be back when my uterus has taken a chill pill.feedback

May 19 2017 - Sexism

To be honest, I'm in the greatest amount of physical pain that I have ever experienced.feedback

May 04 2017

I also want to remind all the women suffering from chronic illness that we aren't weak – quite the opposite, actually. We do our jobs with skill even when we're struggling. We care families even when we can hardly care for ourselves. We serve major face on a red carpet when we feel like lying face down would be more appropriate.feedback

May 04 2017

Just that morning @dianafalzone sued Fox after they took her off air for disclosing her endometriosis. But they're the ones who lost when they fired her, because everyone who's anyone knows that if you can battle chronic illness there's nothing you can't take on.feedback

May 04 2017

Thank you for all the love & concern that's been pouring in since Tuesday. Although I'm much healthier than I was a year ago, complications arose from my most recent endometriosis surgery. My surgery went off without a hitch. When I emerged, cotton-mouthed, Randy told me something I hadn't expected to hear, maybe ever: there was no endometriosis left. Between my surgeries and hormonal intervention, I was disease-free. That doesn't mean it can never return, but for now, once my sutures have been removed and my bruises have changed from blue to yellow to green to gone, I will be healthy.feedback

May 04 2017 - Planned Parenthood

When the healthcare of so many American women, especially our trans sisters, is at-risk – or already nonexistent – I am lucky to be in the position to seek help when I'm in pain. To those in that privileged spot – never forget that we are blessed and can pay it forward by supporting Planned Parenthood and LGBTQ clinics like Callen-Lorde.feedback

May 02 2017

I would never have had the health coverage I had without the union, and that's one of the main points in this.feedback

May 02 2017 - Women

I was sitting next to [football star] Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards. He was like, That's a marshmallow. That's a child. That's a dog.' It wasn't mean – he just seemed confused.feedback

May 01 2017

I attempted to grind my ass on Michael B. Jordan for an additional twenty minutes and then left right after [Amy].feedback

May 01 2017

I feel so lucky that my parents were people who were comfortable with therapy with medication and conversations about anxiety. I would tell my younger self that there's no shame in asking a teacher for help, telling a friend that you're uncomfortable and that it's just the same as falling down and scraping your knee. I would tell my younger self to squeeze my dog tightly and to read a book and to meditate and breathe. And to understand that I'm not alone that there are so many other kids like me who are suffering this way and the greatest thing I can do for them and myself is to be honest.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Sexism

We really wanted to try to be a part of, in our own small way, healing the very big divide that exists in our country right now. We're trying to look beyond the coastal states and really think about connecting to women, to people, in the middle of the country.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Sexism

It's political, but we're also trying to bring up issues that you can't really argue with. For example, a portion of our proceeds are going toward arts education organizations for girls in every city. People have a lot of really split opinions on social politics, but you basically have to be a mustache-twirling villain to have a problem with girls receiving arts education. It's all about trying to expand the way that women can have access to information that cracks their brains open. Jenni's and my entire ethos is really built around relationships between women.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Sexual harassment

When you work in a corporate infrastructure the challenge of coming out about sexual harassment is so massive. And to see a woman who surmounted that and bravely made space for other women to do the same is just deeply inspiring.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I don't fear typecasting – I experience it. It's a very uneven gender experience in our industry, where people just forget that women are actors; thus men are allowed to play a vast variety of types and parts, but when we [women] play one thing in the public eye or a success in any way, people go, Oh, so she's that.' I feel that the men on Girls have absolutely not been typecast in the same way.feedback

Apr 18 2017

The only way to keep going would have been for these characters to keep moving into professional lives and marriage and children – and that wasn't the story we set out to tell. Plus, it's nice to finish when you still have a passion for what you're doing.feedback

Apr 17 2017

When [Konner] came up with that idea – where it's all in Hannah's face, and for all intents and purposes, we don't even know what's going on below the frame – that was so appealing to me. I wanted to feel like there was a version where anything could be happening below the frame: The baby may have laughed, and Hannah may be gasping with pleasure and joy. It was all about Hannah realizing: 'Oh, he's here. He's actually here.feedback

Apr 17 2017

You are not getting away from this without full nudity. We choreographed that pretty carefully. Jenni was like, This is Hannah now.' And we painted little stretchmarks on my sides – we really wanted the body to tell the story of what she's been through.feedback

Apr 16 2017

[Your mother] will take care of you forever, even if it means endless, endless pain. So give me back my jeans!feedback

Apr 06 2017

But, it's also one of the most inspiring creative experiences that you can have.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Pepsi

Assuming everything that can be said about faux-test Pepsi ad has been said so I'm just gonna go with this: it didn't make me want Pepsi.feedback

Apr 04 2017

My surgery went off without a hitch. When I emerged, cotton-mouthed, Randy told me something I hadn't expected to hear, maybe ever: there was no endometriosis left. Between my surgeries and hormonal intervention, I was disease-free. That doesn't mean it can never return, but for now, once my sutures have been removed and my bruises have changed from blue to yellow to green to gone, I will be healthy.feedback

Apr 04 2017

All that will remain is my long-term relationship with pain, and it's time to get real about that. My pain – physical – distracted from my deeper pain – emotional, spiritual – and became the ultimate excuse. I had two modes: working and hurting. I was convinced there was nobility in it. There was certainly routine. So many people who suffer will never have the resources I've had. My job is to educate people, to try to change the pathetic lack of resources for endometriosis, but it's also to seize this gift. I'll be more useful that way.feedback

Mar 28 2017

I've been on the birth-control pill on and off for almost fifteen years. It's the only thing that can control my endometriosis pain, and it's made my skin clearer, my moods more even, and my life altogether finer.feedback

Mar 28 2017

I know that without the pill, I would not have been able to be a productive and functioning member of society, and that's not an exaggeration. I am genuinely nervous for the day I go off it in an attempt to get pregnant because it's such a big part of regulating my body, and the routine makes me feel really safe. Also, my pill case is a gorgeous, appropriately fleshy pink.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - World Happiness report

I'd go off it whenever I broke up with someone or just felt restless. During one of those pill-less periods, I decided I was going to use the contraceptive sponge, newly back on the market. I was visiting a boyfriend and taking an eleven-hour Greyhound bus to get there. I was so excited to have sex and so intent on making it seamless and romantic that I inserted the sponge in the bathroom of the moving bus five hours before we arrived. My periods are painful and disruptive and can put me out of commission, so limiting them to a few times a year is better for my health and happiness.feedback

Mar 25 2017

T-shirts for all! Hashtag toddler.feedback

Mar 24 2017

I walked around feeling as though my eyes–the windows to my soul–were missing some very essential drapery.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I was frustrated by it, because it really was evidence that as a woman in Hollywood, you just can't win. It's just so crazy because I spent six years of my career being called things like 'bag of milk' on the internet, baby cow, aging cow. I also just never felt self-conscious about it. I was like, anyone who's going to take the time to say something negative about my weight on the internet I wasn't particularly keen to impress anyway.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I think for me the big thing was that Tracy just very clearly wasn't trying to change my body. I came to her and was like, I have endometriosis, I have chronic physical pain, I just want to feel stronger I just want to have a stronger core, I want to feel like I have more power throughout my day, how do I get there?' I like that she was coming at it from that perspective rather than like, I'd like to shrink six inches.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I was pretty please to be able to bust that one out, I have to say. The photographer was very serious and French, and I was just sitting there and he was like, What do you want to do, what do you want to show me?' And I was like, This?' [pulling her leg over her head again] And he looked, pretty impressed.feedback

Mar 16 2017

I'm so naturally unathletic that I just go in and I'm thrilled if I can achieve anything.feedback

Feb 06 2017 - Labour Party

"Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food,". "Here's the funny thing. Of course, it's a mistake, but we're talking about him like he's a person who is operating in a sane way, we're talking about him like a person who doesn't have a personality disorder,".feedback

Dec 21 2016 - Abortion

She "would never, ever intentionally trivialize the emotional and physical challenges of terminating a pregnancy.feedback

Dec 06 2016

If what has to happen is that I get metaphorically strung up by my toes because I think we were all born equal and beautiful, then that's just what's going to happen.feedback

Nov 24 2016

I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there.feedback
