Don’t mess with Lena Dunham.
The Girls creator and star took to Instagram to call out Spanish magazine Tentaciones for Photoshopping her image on their March cover.
Oh hello El Pais! I am genuinely honored to be on your cover and so happy you licensed a pic by @ruvenafanador, who always makes me feel gorgeous. BUT this is NOT what my body has ever looked like or will ever look like- the magazine has done more than the average photoshop. So if you’re into what I do, why not be honest with your readers? Much love, Lena. credit to @peguerillo_ for this ? of a ?
Dunham recently opened up about being confident with her body image.
“All the characters I play always dress like they’re a size 0 when they’re actually a size 10,” the actress explained to Paper magazine. “Some might call it ‘delusional’ and I like to think about it as this sort of rocket confidence that’s a little unearned but better than the opposite.”
“I think that it was important to me also to announce that ‘this is what I look like. I don’t have an interest in changing unless it’s on my own terms’ – I won’t say I’ll never lose weight in my life, but it’d have to be for reasons that made sense to me and weren’t to try to meet some industry standard.”
