In the past, when Lena Dunham was feeling starved for attention she'd just take off her clothes on premium cable. 

But these days she has a new book to promote, and apparently serious authors don't strip down at readings, so Lena's been forced to get creative with her shock value antics.

We already know Dunham slept with her parents until she was 12, and that revelation didn't go viral the way Lena clearly hoped it would, so now she's pulling out all the stops. 

Yes, the woman responsible for some of the grossest televised visuals outside of Westeros has hit a new low, as Dunham has taken to publicly praising the sad online ramblings of a young mental patient:

 

Discussing - for some reason - the ongoing Amanda Bynes saga during a recent promotional event, Lena didn't express her shock at Bynes falsely accusing her father of sexual assault, or her sympathy for the mentally ill and their families.

No, instead, Dunham bafflingly praised Bynes' ability to post compelling tweets. 

"She did say something kind of similar [to Dunham's character on Girls]," Lena told a crowd in New York over the weekend. "Which was 'I'm not crazy, I'm actually the one who knows everything that's happening."

"I texted [Girls co-creator Jenny Konner] and said, 'Maybe I'm nuts but I think Amanda Bynes is actually kind of a great writer. Do you know what I mean?' She was like, 'I don't know what you mean!'"

Yeah...neither does anyone else Lena. It's worth noting that the "everything that's happening" to which Bynes was a false accusation of child molestation that Bynes later retracted and blamed on a microchip planted in her brain.

Even if the whole rant had been really cleverly phrased (it wasn't) the takeaway would still be, "Wow, that's really sad. Hopefully she gets the help she needs," not, "Damn, that girl can tweet!"

Mmm. Delish

It has come to this for Seth MacFarlane: his performance as host of the 2013 Academy Awards was so terrible, it's caused Lena Dunham to actually come out against boobs.

After Anne Hathaway received some flak for her Oscars acceptance speech and wardrobe this week, the Girls star came out in defense of this talented actress, Tweeting:

"Ladies: Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth. Let's save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren't advancing the cause."

And these anti-feminists aren't always women, Dunham added. Case in point, she wrote. I saw your boobs, the anthem MacFarlane sang in a pre-recorded bit at the Oscars. Watch it again here:

Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO's Girls, posted a picture and caption on Twitter recently that some of her followers were offended by.

Wearing a scarf resembling a Muslim hijab (below), Dunham wrote "I had a real goth / fundamentalist attitude when I woke up from my nap."

Lena certainly didn't mean to insult anyone by it, but in the wake of the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting, many were not amused:

After people went crazy, Lena Dunham apologized, saying she hadn't even heard about the shooting: "Been in production and completely not reading the news."

"Didn't realize what a bad time it was to make a joke like that. Not a good excuse, but an excuse nonetheless. I'm glad you keep me informed and I'm deleting those tweets."

"Will spend tonight reading my pile of old NY Times, contemplating the boundaries of humor. I try and learn something new every day."

Then, after some fans came to Lena's defense and said she shouldn't be criticized for the joke/photo, the 26-year-old insisted she deserved it ... while mocking Kristen Stewart's apology for cheating on Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders:

"You SHOULD apologize if you make a mistake! I mean, not to the K Stew level, but ... "

Ouch. Point Lena?

Lena Dunham Quotes

My mother and I have a massive fight when I choose to wear a banana-printed belly shirt and pink leggings to the Vatican.

I am 20 years old and hate myself. My hair, my face, the curve of my stomach. The way my voice comes out wavering and my poems come out maudlin.
