Lena Dunham: I’d ‘Kill Myself’ If I Was A Man
Lena Dunham would rather end her life than be a man.
While speaking at the New York Women in Communications luncheon Monday, the 29-year-old actress was asked what she would do if she woke up one day and was a man. (RELATED: Lena Dunham: ‘White Men’ Can’t Understand What It’s Like To Be ‘Under Attack)
“Kill myself,” she said with a laugh.
She said she responded that way because she feels “lucky” to be a woman.
“The reason I said that wasn’t because I’m subscribing to an old binary,” Dunham said.
“I love that fact that we’re in a time where we get to determine what gender looks and feels like to us. It was not because I wouldn’t know what to wear. It was because I feel so passionately lucky to be doing the work of being female right now.” (RELATED: Lena Dunham: The Way The Media Covers Clinton Is ‘Rabidly Sexist’)
