Staying true to herself, Lena Dunham didn't hold back in her latest interview.

The Girls star joined New York City's The Breakfast Club on Wednesday and discussed a wide range of topics, dishing her opinions, emotions and even a few apologies throughout the show.

For example, in light of the scary news surrounding Kim Kardashian and her robbery in Paris, Dunham expressed her concern for the reality star and why she's disappointed in how people and media tabloids have been handling it.

"What I really hate about this Kim thing is that people are feeling so much license to make jokes, and it's like, that's a human being," she explained. "She may have put her life on display in this specific way, and you may not agree with everything she does, but that is a woman and a mother and a daughter who just went through something so heinous. So my heart is with Kim."

But just as she's asking other people to take a step back and acknowledge whether their humor is funny or hurtful, Dunham has made sure to do the same for herself.

In fact, she addressed the controversy stemming from the comments she made about Odell Beckham Jr. last month and apologized once more.

"I was in my own head. It was a great lesson to me in how your humor can be misconstrued…In the written word, it did not translate," Dunham admitted.

"I was at the Met Ball and feeling super self-conscious," she recalled seeing celebs like Beyoncé, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid. "I was sitting there and had this whole projected thought process of like, 'Odell doesn't want to be sitting next to me. He doesn't want to talk to me. He thinks I'm garbage. He thinks I look like a boy.' I thought all of that was coming across, and it seemed like I was actually accusing him of some type of misogyny."

She continued, "I was unintentionally perpetuating the stereotype of a black man as someone who will holler at anything that's near him. Especially, at this moment in history, we have to be hyper-vigilant about the way that we depict each other because of how much darkness and tension exists...I will be much more careful in the future about making sure my humor translate and it's not creating destructive images."

Dunham also touched on how she recently wrapped filming the last season of Girls and is figuring out this new chapter of her life after the show.

"That last night I was weeping like a mother bleeping baby. I couldn't believe it," she admitted. "Just because it's been my whole twenties. I started writing the show when I was 23 and I'm 30 now. That's my family, those are my best friends, so it felt like this crazy loss."

She continued, "I woke up the next day, and I was like, 'What do I even do with myself? Who am I? What do I do when I'm not on this television show?'"

Still, she knows ending the show was for the best.

"Everyone has passions, and I want to let them grow and develop," she said. "I never wanted to become that show where everyone's like, 'Yeah, I'm just going to my day job.'  We have had so much love for it every day that we've done it, and I wanted us to go out with that same passion and connection."

She continued, "At the end, we all cried and we all hugged. We were all like, 'You're my sister.' Give it three more years and we would have been like, 'Don't ever f--king look at me again.'"
