Lena Dunham Poses as Grecian Statue For New York Times Magazine

Most people probably know Lena Dunham as the lead star from hit HBO series “Girls”, but the 28 year old actress has also been making quite a name for herself as a fashion icon.

She has her own unique sense of style that has been praised by some and panned by others, but there’s no doubt that she gets people talking. And now for her latest photo shoot with New York Times magazine, Lena has gone one step further and fully transformed herself into a Grecian statue. Definitely not an every day look that you see on a young starlet, but somehow she pulls it off.

In the article, Dunham speaks candidly about everything from how she met her boyfriend, Fun guitarist Jack Antonoff, while he was living at home with his parents, to how she deals with being in the public eye.

“I think there’s a part of my parents and a part of me that is consistently excited and surprised that I am in any way functional,” she admits. “I’ve had a lot of moments in my career where I’ve had to just say, ‘I’m picking my jaw up off the floor and carrying on,’ Because you don’t get much work done with your jaw on the floor.”

Dunham also has a forthcoming book entitled “Not That Kind of Girl”. In the book she reveals her struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder.

“I am afraid of everything. The list of things that keep me up at night includes but is not limited to: appendicitis, typhoid, leprosy, unclean meat, foods I haven’t seen emerge from their packaging, foods my mother hasn’t tasted first so that if we die we die together, homeless people, headaches, rape, kidnapping, milk, the subway, sleep.”

Fans can buy Dunham’s book when it is published later this month, and can catch her in the fourth season of “Girls”, which will air in early 2015.
