Lena Dunham’s Boobs Will Outlast Us All

One thing we absolutely love about Lena Dunham is her complete dismissal of all the haters: while the entire Internet boils over with body snark and rage every time Dunham removes an article of clothing on Girls, the writer/actress/director/troll foil continues to get naked, cast smokin’ hot babes like Michael Vartan and Donald Glover as her love interests, and collect her millions. Sometimes we think that Dunham’s boobs will outlive us all, that the only creatures who will survive to populate a post-apocalyptic Earth will be Cher, cockroaches, and Lena Dunham’s rack. (Wait, how hasn’t anyone turned that into a graphic novel yet?!) Somehow we find that thought comforting.
In the October issue of Marie Claire UK, Dunham discusses her frequent nudity on Girls:
I always hope that I’ll know when I no longer need to show my breasts for good. Like I’ll know when to pack it in and put a bra on. That is my prayer to the universe. But then, maybe it will be really important that I do it when I’m 60. Who knows? I don’t think I’d be able to do this and put myself in all these situations on camera that are kind of humiliating and uncomfortable. Nobody wants to sit there doggy-style for ten hours while they shoot or whatever. It’s not sexy or glamorous. I don’t think I’d be able to do that if I didn’t think it was essentially important in my contribution to the world.
Don’t worry, Lena Dunham, your breasts are welcomed to stay as long as they want. We have a guest house out back; your boobs can take as much time as they need, you know, just stay until they get back on their feet. You’re not putting us out by putting those out. It’s really no problem at all.
