“Love my @lonelylingerie and I think I will wear it to dinner with some boots & a smile because we are all very lucky to be free,” said the 29-year-old executive producer, creator, director, writer and actress of the hit show Girls. The caption followed a post on the actress’ Instagram page, which showed her posing in semi-see-through green lingerie to “celebrate” her freedom this past Memorial Day.
@lonelylingerie replied back with: “Queen Lena being the ultimate babe in her Lonely Bonnie Softcup set. We are so glad you exist.”
The post has since collected nearly 95k likes, and over 5k comments. Dunham’s boyfriend, fun.’s Jack Antonoff, posted a picture of the outfit he wore that day as well, but it consisted of a much more demure red blazer, dark sunglasses, black shirt and pants.
The multi-talented Dunham is known for her body-positive message and feminist attitudes, which can be seen through her other Instagram posts and her responses in interviews. She has also recently been posting images of her in her while working out/in her workout clothes. Dunham has stated that she is a big supporter of working out to curb her anxiety (due to OCD). She said that it took her 16 medicated years to finally give in and have faith in the benefits of exercise on her mental health.
As mentioned, Dunham is known for her hit HBO show Girls. Dunham plays Hannah Horvath, a self-absorbed, anxiety-ridden twenty-something-year-old trying to navigate present-day New York City with her equally complicated and dynamic group of friends (and sometimes ex-boyfriends). The show is also directed by Judd Apatow, and stars Allison Williams (daughter of NBC’s Brian Williams), Jemma Kirke, Zosia Memet and Adam Driver. Dunham got her start with the critical acclaim of her semiautobiographical feature film, Tiny Furniture. The film was so successful that because of it, she was offered a blind script deal for Girls.
In her role as Hannah, Dunham has also appeared nude several times – so this was not the first and most likely won’t be the last time we’ll see Dunham embracing her “freedom,” while providing us with messages of self-love.
