Lena Dunham is featured in this month’s Playboy – and here’s some irony for you:

The actress, so often naked on HBO’s Girls, is actually clothed within the pages of the world’s most famous men’s magazine.

Asked about her full-shaped figure, Dunham says she’s actually grateful for her appearance.

Why does she prefer it over that of Miranda Kerr or Alessandra Ambrosio?


“I don’t want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack,” says the actress/writer. “Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier. The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you.”

Does Dunham see any appeal to being hot?

“I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants,” she says.

The Girls Season 2 finale airs this Sunday night on HBO.
