We already know that Lena Dunham isn’t shy about exposing her naked body on Girls, but now, the comedic actress is opening up in a very different way. As part of artist Miranda July’s new project “We Think Alone,” Lena shared a personal and romantic e-mail that she sent to her boyfriend, Fun. musician Jack Antonoff.
The 27-year-old wrote the letter while in India last year. “I was walking through a beautiful Indian garden this morning (Lodi garden! The oldest in the city! It looks like if someone crushed Versailles with a giant Doc Marten) and passed a big green pond with a dozen disorderly swans,” she wrote. “All the old people in my party were cooing about the swans, but I was focused on this young couple, late teens or early twenties, curled up on a bench talking really animatedly. We spent 40 minutes walking around the garden and when we circled back they were still there, chatting like friends.”
Enough of the background, though — this is where things got really adorable. “And I thought of you, like always, and I felt I could spend four days on a bench with you and it wouldn’t be enough time to hear all the stories you have to tell,” she continued. “I literally want to know everything you have ever seen and what you felt like while you were seeing it. And I will be so much better my whole life for knowing those things.”
Lena rised to stardom for creating and starring in the HBO comedy Girls, which premiered in 2012. Shortly after the series took off, she began dating Jack.
