Lena Dunham sure is pleased with herself. But at least now she has a hit TV show with shut-ins, gays, and obese freshman English majors at Sarah Lawrence. But what about when she was just a small baby manatee waiting to grow into the flop sweat covered meatsack of grossness she currently is? I’m sure she went through an awkward phase where she thought she was ugly, right? Wrong. This is what this diluted potato head had to say in an interview in Marie Claire magazine:
“This could very easily be taken out of context and I think it’s funny now, but I remember looking in the mirror as a kid and it would be like for an hour at a time and I’d be like, ‘I’m just so beautiful. Everybody is so lucky that they get to look at me.’ And of course that changes as you get older, but I may have held on to that little kid feeling that was me alone in my bathroom.”
See, this is exactly the problem growing up with rich hippie parents. A little fucking shame is good for you. No one should be praised all the time, much less if you look like Abe Vigoda but with smaller tits. My mom used to introduce me to people by joking that I was the product of the less attractive milkman. If Lena’s shitty parents had just instilled a little humility and self-loathing, then we wouldn’t have to deal with her doughy body waddling naked on our TV screens.
