Lena Dunham is featured on the cover of the November issue of “Harper’s Bazaar” magazine. Inside, she talks about turning cool and hitting the big 3-0.
She also touched on the internet hate that she has received ever since she rose to fame. She said, “I’ve been put to bed for weeks from reading things about myself on sites that used to be considered feminist gospel. I love the Internet because it helped me discover everything that matters to me. But I also hate the Internet because every piece of true pain I’ve experienced as an adult — with the exception of death in the family and breakups — has come from it.”
On the topic of turning thirty, she said, “I’m psyched about it because I think that being in your 20’s – especially as a woman – there’s an inherent tension. Ageism exists in all directions, but it isn’t the sweet spot for being taken seriously in the workplace. I’ve been really lucky. I got to do a lot of things before I was 30 that most people don’t.”
Aside from her show “Girls” going into its fifth season, she has also sold a pilot to HBO called “Max.”
