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.

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.
[L-R] Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and Cindy Crawford in 'Bad Blood'
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.

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.

But who does Cynthia think would make a good Miranda, the feisty lawyer she played in the popular HBO series?

The star took to Instagram with a list of questions she hoped to hear as she appeared on the red carpet at the Oscars, including 'What's the biggest risk you've taken that you feel has paid off?' and 'What accomplishment are you most proud of?'.
