Lena Dunham Goes Edgy For Elle Magazine

Lena Dunham is killing it for the February issue of Elle Magazine. The 28-year-old actress went super edgy for this shoot with a black and red color scheme that is to die for. Her bleached hair pulls everything together. She opens up in the magazine about everything from Girls to being in the public eye.

On using her voice to speak out about the important things:

“I realized early on that I was not going to be able to have a comfortable relationship with celebrity if I didn’t feel like I was using it to talk about things that were important to me. It was always going to make me feel gross, for lack of a better word. I was like, ‘Oh, this attention is something I’m going to figure out how to use in a way that feels productive, healthy, and smart. And not just like as an excuse to collect handbags.’ Although…..I love handbags.”

Check out the full interview in ELLE’s February Women in TV issue, available digitally and on select newsstands today, and nationwide on January 13.

Don’t forget! Girls season 4 premiere on HBO on Sunday, January 11.
