The writer and producer said that the online world had been the source of every "true pain" in her life.
‘Girls’ creator and actor Lena Dunham has spoken out about the effect that negative comments written on the internet about her have had on her personal life, saying that the online world has been the source of “every piece of true pain” she has experienced.
29 year old Dunham announced earlier this month that she had quit Twitter, using somebody to post on her behalf, because it had ceased to become a “safe space” for her. Now, in an interview to go along with her topless photoshoot for the new edition of Harper’s Bazaar, she reveals that she has a love/hate relationship with the internet itself, and has been greatly affected by things she has read about her on various sites.

Although her account is still active, she composes her tweets and sends them to a colleague who posts on her behalf.
Lena Dunham has announced that she no longer uses Twitter and now has somebody else posting updates on her behalf, citing a recent barrage of what she describes as “verbal abuse”.
The ‘Girls’ creator, who also recently suggested that the hit HBO show would end after a sixth season, was speaking to Kara Swisher on the ‘Re/code Decode’ radio podcast. She said earlier this year that she no longer had Twitter on her phone, but that she still composed tweets and sent them to a friend who was posting in her place, saying “we gotta create systems that make us feel safe”.
However, she’s now elaborated on the relationship she has with the social media site. “I don’t look at Twitter anymore. I have a really great person [who tweets for me]. I tweet, but I do it through someone else,” Dunham said. “I don’t even know my Twitter password. Which may make me seem like I’m no longer a community user, and that would be true.”

Blake Lively, the 28-year-old Age of Adaline actor and wife of Ryan Reynolds, wasn’t mocking Taylor Swift with her recent Instagram post. Lively posted a picture in which she joked – as she later clarified in good humour – about being part of a music video for John Legend’s cover of Swift single ‘Bad Blood’.

The Obama’s eldest daughter is said to be interested in filmmaking.
Barack Obama’s eldest daughter Malia has landed what sounds like a dream job for most 17 year olds, working on the set of HBO series ‘Girls’. The 17 year old, who celebrated her birthday yesterday, is said to be interested in pursuing a career in TV or film after she graduates next year.
Lena Dunham will be keeping Malia busy this summer.
Malia was spotted by TMZ hanging out on the set of ‘Girls’ on Thursday. The President’s daughter was pictured sipping a soft drink while the series filmed on location in Brooklyn hipster restaurant, Aurora Ristorante.
The ‘Girls’ star looks to be asking boyfriend Jack Antonoff to put a ring on it after gay marriage was legalised across the United States.
After Friday’s landmark Supreme Court ruling which saw gay marriage legalised across the United States, 'Girls' actress Lena Dunham decided to take the opportunity to drop a not very subtle hint towards her boyfriend of three years, musician Jack Antonoff.

‘Woke up to learn that love is free! Thank you to all those who fought so hard to make this historic moment happen,’ Dunham tweeted on Friday morning. ‘Weddings are about to get a lot less boring. Let's use this victory as a reminder to keep pushing for equality on every frontier. We have the power!’
Lena Dunham, rocking out with the best of them.
Lena Dunham, everybody. The Girls creator guested on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Friday night and it served as the perfect occasion to bring back... wait for it... LIP SYNC BATTLE. Oh yeah! The two battled against each other over eight minutes, with Fallon trying his lips at Charlene’s “I’ve Never Been to Me” and RUN-DMC’s “Run’s House” and Dunham taking on Calvin Harris’ “Outside” (feat. Ellie Goulding) and Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls.”
Who knew Lena Dunham had so much diva in her?
Recently, Fallon has branched out and created a full show, based on his most successful skit. The show, aptly named Lip Sync Battle is hosted by LL Cool J and airs on Spike TV. But Dunham wanted to go back to the source to find a platform for her – rather impressive – lip syncing talents.
Bristol and Sarah Palin chose a rather odd publicity method this week.
Sarah Palin has attacked Lena Dunham.
Sarah Palin has attacked the Girls creator Lena Dunham, dubbing her a "paedophile" for comments she made in her memoir Not That Kind of Girl. Dunham had written that as a 7-year-old girl she gave candy to her 1-year-old sister in exchange for a look at her vagina.

The 25-year-old singer reportedly borrowed more than $13, 000 in clothes from The Stockroom, an erotic boutique in Los Angeles.

It's here, and it's stunning.
Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar was not a combination we ever thought we'd see, but with their collaboration on 'Bad Blood' - alongside a host of other celebrities in the hotly anticipated video - seems this pop starlet is ever expanding her much-loved sound.

There might be a whole action movie vibe to the video, which opened at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards yesterday (May 17th 2015), but there's not much to it in terms of plot. It opens with Catastrophe (Taylor Swift) and Arsyn (Selena Gomez) seemingly working together to defeat a horde of masked assassins, before Arsyn - with her eyes on the prize - takes out Catastrophe too. Then she finds herself at Welvin Da Great's (Kendrick Lamar) headquarters being - for want of a better word - 'repaired' by The Trinity (Hailee Steinfeld x3) before rallying her army of scantily clad beauties to go against her newfound enemy.

Taylor Swift tweets to reveal the final character in the hotly awaited video for her new single.
It's not often a simple music video receives this much hype before anyone has even seen it - but the video for Taylor Swift's new single 'Bad Blood' looks to be anything but simple. It's a celebrity-packed spectacle with a Sin City-like visual style, and Swift has just revealed the lead actress at the centre of all the drama is Selena Gomez, playing a femme fatale named Arsyn.
Girl power: Swift teams up with other female stars in Bad Blood
Selena Gomez joins Swift (who plays Catastrophe) and a long list of other female stars in the video, including Gigi Hadid (as Slay-Z), Hayley Williams (The Crimson Curse), Ellie Goulding (Destructa X), Lena Dunham (Lucky Fiori) and Jessica Alba (Domino).

'Bad Blood' is getting its premiere at the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday, and it looks like we're in for a treat judging by Swift's Instagram page!
Taylor Swift has been teasing what looks like a pretty special video for ‘Bad Blood’ ahead of its debut next week. Over the last three days, the singer has been uploading some kick-ass looking Sin City-style posters casting herself and some of her friends as a team of superheroes.
On May 7th, Swift posted a noir-ish looking picture of herself on her Instagram page, dressed in a leather motorcycle-style jacket and looking straight down the camera, with the words “Taylor Swift starring as ‘Catastrophe’. The picture also contained the words “Bad Blood” with the tagline “Band-Aids Don’t Fix Bullet Holes”, in the style of a movie poster.

Cynthia Nixon plays a 'Sex and the City' naming game in a recent TV interview.
Appearing on the chat show 'Watch What Happens Live!' last Thursday (30 April), Cynthia Nixon was asked by host Andy Cohen to suggest which 'Sex and the City' characters a variety of famous faces would be. And the results were certainly interesting: the actress was quick to name Queen Elizabeth II as Charlotte, both Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama as Carries, and Beyonce as Samantha.
Cynthia Nixon still keeps in touch with all the 'Sex and the City' ladies
But who does Cynthia think would make a good Miranda, the feisty lawyer she played in the popular HBO series? She reckons Hillary Clinton, Lena Dunham and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would all be a good fit. And then there's Gandhi, who would be - who else - Mr Big, according to Cynthia.

Lena Dunham has spoken of her desire to make a movie adaptation of ‘Girls’ – eventually. The comedic mastermind revealed that she has harboured the ambition for a while, but wouldn’t consider putting it into action for at least ten years after the series concludes.
The 28 year old was speaking to Variety about the success of the HBO series and what the future holds. “I have fantasies of us all coming back when we’re 40,” she admitted about her cast of twenty-somethings. “We’d want to wait long enough for something to have really gone down.”
Lena Dunham floated the possiblity of a 'Girls' movie - but not in the immediate future
