Lena Dunham isn't worried one bit about Hillary Clinton facing off against former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg in the 2016 presidential race.

"Hillary's still going to win," Dunham said at last night's Sundance Film Festival premiere of her new HBO documentary Suited. "I'm still going to be riding that Hillary train right to White House, baby!"

She's already looking forward to the day the Clintons return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "I'm going to be having a little pillow fight in the White House as soon as you know it," Dunham cracked.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that Bloomberg has told associates that he is willing to spend $1 billion of his own money for an independent run at the White House. He apparently will make a final decision by early March, the newspaper reported.

Dunham is a longtime Clinton supporter. She has campaigned for the former secretary of state and interviewed her for her Lenny newsletter. Earlier this month, Dunham even did a takeover of Clinton's Instagram.

Dunham made headline news earlier this week during an interview with Variety when she criticized the media for its "rabidly sexist" coverage of Clinton.

She said, "Whether it's the attacks on her personal life or the adjectives that are used to describe her clothing, we have to do a full reexamination."
