    Lena Dunham Talks Boyfriend Jack Antonoff: "It Was Clear to Him What the Baggage of Dating Me Was Going to Be"

    Lena Dunham lives a life in the spotlight.

    Case in point? She hosted SNL on Saturday night and then made headlines for a molestation joke on Twitter for which she subsequently apologized. Meanwhile her boyfriend Jack Antonoff, whom she began dating in September 2012, is barely in the tabloids.

    The two began seeing each other just after Girls debuted and the 27 year old actress, who stuns on the cover of the April issue of Glamour, admits their relationship works because her Indie rock band BF was already aware of the hype (and sometimes negative publicity) surrounding the hit HBO series.

    "The dialogue around the show already existed, so it was sort of clear to him what the baggage of dating me was going to be," she explains, looking stunning on the cover with her hair slicked down while sporting thick dark eyeliner and a Rag and Bone dress. "And I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, 'God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bulls--t.' It's funny, 'cause in some ways that's the conversation we still have when I'm upset [about stuff I read]."

    The Girls creator, who has won two Golden Globe awards, including Best Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy, also tells the publication that the future of her acting career is uncertain. 

    "I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore," she revealed. "I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts."

    The brunette beauty, who recently stunned on the February issue of Vogue and later admitted to being offended when feminist blog Jezebel offered $10,000 for the mag's untouched photos (which turned out to be incredibly similar), also shared when she feels her best.

    "I feel prettier with a naked face and ChapStick," she says. "But a good haircut makes a huge difference."

    Looking good, girl.
