Lena Dunham's boyfriend doesn't feel the need to shield her from criticism.
Jack Antonoff, who has been dating the 'Girls' creator and star since 2012 after they were set up on a blind date by his sister and comedian Mike Birbiglia, says he isn't overprotective of her because they have no problem switching off and being a ''normal'' couple at home.
Asked about protecting the 28-year-old actress, who is regularly criticised for her figure, outspoken personality and for baring her naked body on the HBO series, the Fun. star exclusively told BANG Showbiz at the Wireless Festival in London today (06.07.14): ''That's not something I really think about. We're just home being normal people, eating, sleeping and relaxing, so all the noises of the world are easy to turn off.''
The 30-year-old rocker, who was performing at the event with his new band Bleachers, also insists he and Lena always make time for each other, no matter how busy they are.
He said: ''We're like any other people, lots of people manage that - if one's a teacher and one's a cop; they have crazy scheduling issues too. Time is hard. But you figure it out.''
The 'Some Nights' hitmaker revealed that Lena has inspired several of his new band's songs.
He said: ''Yes, of course Lena's inspired some songs. You'll know right off the bat when you hear it which ones are about her.''
