Lena Dunham is in love and she doesn’t care who knows it!
The writer, director, star—and now two-time Golden Globe winner—of HBO’s Girls gets quite candid about her love life and boyfriend, Jack Antonoff, in the new issue of Interview magazine.
“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 says. “But if you’re in love with someone great, then I don’t understand why you wouldn’t tell everybody.”

Lena, who began dating the fun. guitarist a few months ago, goes on to explain just how much love actually means to her.
“I’ve always been a big ‘I love you’ sayer and stuff,” she shares. “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 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 past year has proven to be a huge success for Lena when it comes to her love life and career. On Sunday, the second season of Girls premiered and Lena went home with two Golden Globes. Along with taking home the award for Best TV Series — Comedy/Musical, she also won Best Actress in a TV Series — Comedy/Musical.
And in October, Lena signed a book deal worth more than $3.5 million.
