After staying away from the “cesspool” parts of the internet for a few years, Lena Dunham decided to check them out again after her wedding. She is upset by the comments that make fun of her body.
The Girls creator and writer, 35, said that since she married musician Luis Felber at the end of September, she’s had a “lovely” week and “got to feel the intense love” of their friends and family. After posting about their wedding on Instagram, Dunham said she decided to “peek” at the comments, which was something she usually didn’t do.
“It’s a little too easy to feel the glow of support and forget about the cesspool behind it,” she wrote on Instagram. “So I took a peek and saw some gnarly stuff, most of which wasn’t worth responding to or even sharing with you.” Dunham did, however, want to talk about how often people made fun of her body.
“One story I don’t agree with, mostly because I don’t want other women or other people to believe it, is that I should be ashamed because my body has changed since I was last on TV,” she said.
“First of all, “Did Lena eat the cast of Girls?” isn’t a very funny joke—I could make it funnier for Twitter. Second, it’s funny that my body is being compared to one that was also criticized by the public. This is an echo chamber of body shaming. But finally, when will we stop thinking that being thin means being healthy and happy?” she inquired.
Dunham, who used to be addicted to prescription drugs but is now clean, said that gaining weight isn’t a bad thing.
“Of course, good changes in habits can lead to weight loss, but guess what? So can gaining weight, “she told me. “The pictures I’m being compared to are from when I was using drugs and didn’t know I was sick. Since then, I’ve been sober for four years and started my life as someone who wants to be healthy as well as successful.”
