On her hit show, Girls, Lena Dunham provides an unflinching window into the angst-ridden psyches of young New Yorkers. In real life, though, she seems like kind of an adorably blissed-out person (despite the internet’s haterade). Hannah Horvath might be suffering through one emotional debacle after another, but Lena Dunham appears to be happily enjoying the charmed life of a successful 20-something writer, actress and auteur.
We can’t blame Lena Dunham for getting giddy in all of these photos. I mean, after all, she gets to hobnob with fashion elite like Vogue editor Anna Wintour. She gets to be besties with hip young starlets like her Girls co-stars Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet. Oh, and she gets to party with pop stars like Taylor Swift and Christina Aguilera.
Whether she’s bossing it up on her Brooklyn set or hanging out with New York’s society elite, Lena Dunham is always very, very excited to be doing whatever it is she’s doing. And that’s great! We’re happy that Dunham is in control of her creative destiny and that she seems to embrace every experience in her life with unbridled joy.
One question: Can she teach us how to be so happy all the time, too?
Girls returns to HBO this Sunday, January 12.
