Lena Dunham addresses that photoshopped magazine cover

A Spanish magazine by the name of Tentaciones has Lena Dunham on the cover of their March issue, and - well - she's not looking like her usual self. Obviously Lena was quick to pick up on this, and posted the below to her Instagram late last night along with the following message...

"Oh hello El Pais! I am genuinely honored to be on your cover and so happy you licensed a pic by @ruvenafanador, who always makes me feel gorgeous. BUT this is NOT what my body has ever looked like or will ever look like- the magazine has done more than the average photoshop. So if you're into what I do, why not be honest with your readers? Much love, Lena. credit to @peguerillo"

In a recent interview with Paper magazine, Lena said: "All the characters I play always dress like they're a size 0 when they're actually a size 10... Some might call it 'delusional' and I like to think about it as this sort of rocket confidence that's a little unearned but better than the opposite. I think that it was important to me also to announce that 'this is what I look like. I don't have an interest in changing unless it's on my own terms' - I won't say I'll never lose weight in my life, but it'd have to be for reasons that made sense to me and weren't to try to meet some industry standard."
