Lena Dunham gets her body confidence from her parents.

The 'Girls' creator has been blasted for not having a typical Hollywood look but Lena says she remains positive thanks to her mother and father.

She told the October issue of Marie Claire UK: ''My parents both have really healthy attitudes about their own bodies but also about the range of things that can be beautiful. But they also just always made me feel pretty and cool and smart, even in the moments when I have known - and still know - that my body wasn't fitting into a traditional Hollywood idea of the female body.''

Lena, 27, also revealed people are surprised that she loves fashion because they don't expect her to be interested in clothes.

She said: ''I'm not saying I am a great candidate for the cover of a fashion magazine. But I do love clothes. People are always surprised to hear that - they think I walk around in a washcloth or something.

''I do think it takes fashion magazines a minute to be comfortable with variations of any kind. Adele is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but every time I see her on the cover, it's like a crop of her face and it's just so boring at this point. It's such a boring conversation.''
