Lena Dunham is exacting some revenge on Howard Stern.

One year after Stern slammed the Girls star on his radio show in January 2013 (he called her "a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill"), Dunham hit the stage at Stern's recent 60th birthday party to share some jokes.

"I was so thrilled when I found out he knew who I was," Dunham said to the crowd of partygoers. "When I found out he was talking about me I tuned in just in time to hear him say I looked like Jonah Hill and that I was raping his eyes. He quickly apologized."

The 27-year-old continued, "Then a minute later he asked me if I was intimidated because my boyfriend could be getting a much hotter piece of ass. At the time, I didn't have the wherewithal to ask if you were intimidated because [your wife] Beth could definitely be with someone who doesn't look like a cartoon of a Jewish female horse."


Dunham's jokes were all in good fun though. She and Stern have become chums since the bashing and Stern has admitted to being a huge fan of Girls. Dunham later went on the praise the radio jockey and said he is a "champion of women in the arts."

Other stars who attended Stern's big birthday bash included Jimmy Kimmel, Heidi Klum, Jenny McCarthy, Joan Rivers, Katie Couric, Robert Downey Jr., Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and Bryan Cranston.
