As you may be aware, Miss Swift is enjoying inviting famous faces onstage during her 1989 tour. Last weekend, at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium, it was the turn of Lena Dunham and others from Swift's Bad Blood Squad onstage, and - safe to say - Lena looks a bit lost among the Amazonian forms of Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge and actress Hailee Steinfeld.
Speaking of the experience, Lena said during an interview with Judd Apatow on Monday: "I was so thrilled to support my friend and so displeased to learn about the truth of my own height. I've been feeling pretty tall and feeling pretty sturdy, and it was amazing to be, like, 'Oh, I'm not tall, I'm chubby.' It's different.... On most days, I feel really great and fine about my body, but I don't think standing next to, like, three supermodels or so is anything even the most confident woman needs to do... When I socialize with those women, which I've done a little bit because they're good friends of Taylor's, who is a good friend of mine, I don't feel so strange. But the minute I caught sight of myself in the Jumbotron, I knew something was very wrong."

When Apatow admitted he found the sight pretty hilarious, Dunham reportedly continued: "I like that you just admitted that it was funny, because I got all these texts from friends saying like, 'I just want you to know you're beautiful,' and I was like, 'I didn't ask for that.' You were just like, 'That was the f--king funniest thing I've ever seen.' And my boyfriend [Jack Antonoff] made it his screensaver, because he thinks it's so funny to just look at the height difference and look at all the people in makeup, and then me. And that's the reaction that's like, 'Get the f--k out!'"
Going one step further, Lena captioned the below: "But seriously, how did that drug addicted secretary get up there? Or is she a runaway cellist? Oh I know it's a 7th grade boy who is into tech theater ðŸ˜ÂÂ pic from @m_satnick that shows just how good @taylorswift is at giving face."
Speaking as a mother in her mid-thirties who enjoys snacking on flapjacks despite being 5 foot high, I relate. Have you ever caught a glance at yourself in the mirror alongside your mates and thought, "Wow, really, that squat?" Or "Meh, life's like a box of chocolates; all different shapes and sizes."
