Perhaps we'll be seeing less of Lena Dunham on screen in the future: The "Girls" talent says she might consider quitting acting to focus on some of her other work.
But don't worry, she's not going far.
"I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore. I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," the Golden Globe-winning 27-year-old said in the April issue of Glamour, which hits newsstands March 18.
Appearing in the critically acclaimed HBO series about four 20-something women growing up in New York isn't the only thing on her plate. She created, writes and directs the series, which aired its Season 3 finale on Sunday. The frequently nude actress is also dating fun. musician Jack Antonoff, who has given her perspective on her career and, she said, came into her life during a major turning point.

SHE NEEDS SLEEVES BADLY
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a show she was on.
She seems rather #Bossy to me.
When you look like a pig, you get cast as a pig.
Instead of acting, how about focusing on exercise?
Never heard of her.
I’d say she needs more than just sleeves.
She did that "your first time" ad for Obama.
Run for congress, clam diver. I dare you.
Dunham, dunham? Where have we heard that name? Hmmmmm! Oh, wait. Wasn’t the lyin king’s mom’s maiden name dunham? Is this lena person possibly berry’s long lost sister who’s father was from uranus. Butt she was born in Hawaii? Or someplace else to yet be determined. With college records that reveal nothing? Nobody ever knew her or remembers her in any classes? Who probably pays her FAIR share of taxes and is a great philanthropist?
No. No. NOOOOOOOOOO! Wait..... who?
Who is Lena Skank?
Not a problem that's very high on my list of priorities, unfortunately.
Third season and I’ve just heard about her show.
Critically acclaimed is trade speak for “nobody is watching it, but we Leftists love it”. Interesting that all that I can take away from the article is that she is in an HBO series that is mainly about navel gazing women in NYC and it features a lot of pointless nudity by a homely, frumpy woman.
I think she would be smart to keep cashing those checks for as long as they are writing them, because I see a short career.
She’s going to quit acting? I didn’t know she had ever started!
Who is Lena Dunham?
MY EYES!!! MY EYES!!!
I haven’t seen the show, but why would anyone want to see this whey-faced drab without her clothes? She is not attractive in any sense of the word.
Some dumpy, tattooed skank with a show on HBO that nobody watches.
