Why I like Lena Dunham.

"I ate cake for breakfast...I ate cake for dinner"

"Meeting actresses who such a big part of their job is about what they look like, I feel so lucky to be freed from that prison. I ate cake for breakfast on the day of the Emmys I ate cake for dinner, my workout didn't require Spanx, and I still feel like I looked better than people expected me to. It was amazing..."

Other point of view:

"Lena Dunham is not a rape victim, she is a writer-actor-director who is exceptionally well compensated both financially and in the artist’s capital of choice — attention — for exploiting her body as an artistic commodity. This is wholly deserved: Dunham is one of the medium’s most gifted artists working at her full potential. However, calling this brave as opposed to a calculated risk — the ideal impact of which is the exact debate that it has caused — is paternalistic, condescending, and intellectually dishonest. Writers are narcissists: They presume that their personal obsessions and neuroses are of deep fascination — or even beneficial — to potentially millions of people."

My opinion:

[caption id="attachment_49" align="alignleft" width="228"]Lena Dunham Font: "I wouldn't want a body like a Victoria's Secret model"[/caption] What would you do if you could make money with some something you do well and at same time do something good to the world? I would do what she does.

I honestly agree with some of his points - in the article above - but I still think she is a smart voice between so many "stupid-looking-good-people". And she is being heard as a good example for so many girls.
