GASP! Lena Dunham Reveals Plans To Quit Acting

'I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore' #OverIt

If you had Lena Dunham down as the next (heavily tattooed, string vest wearing) Meryl Streep, well, you're wrong as she has revealed she plans on giving up the acting game. Lena said in an interview with US Glamour: '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.' Err, so we won't get to see Hannah and Shoshanna with grey hair? C'mon Lena, don't crush our dreams of 'Girls Season 38' actually happening.

You know that thing when you dramatically quit Facebook and scurry back three days later? Hopefully this is what is going on with Lena. She's certainly not the first to drop the 'retirement' bomb, as Justin Beiber, Lily Allen and Jay Z have all publically 'quit' their day jobs. As you know, their retirement plans didn't go so well. 

The April issue of Glamour has three separate Lena covers, with her modelling jewelled Prada, a yellow caped number and spaghetti strap dress. Hamish Bowles' 'how to pose' tutorial obviously worked, as Lena now looks totally at home on the newstand.

In the interview Lena also talks about her first date her her boyfriend Jack Antonoff, when those naked scenes came up. 'The dialogue around the show already existed, so it was sort of clear to him what the baggage of dating me was going to be,' Lena reveals. 'I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, 'God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bullsh-t.' It's funny, 'cause in some ways that's the conversation we still have when I'm upset (about stuff I read).'

Lena also talks about getting the chop as she said: 'I have real hair impatience and I cut my hair off really short about a year and a half ago. It was completely liberating. I felt more like myself than I ever had before. Now I'm kind of growing it out a little, working with a fifth-grade school girl look.' But Lena has a Hannah Horvath approach to makeup as she said: 'I feel prettier with a naked face and ChapStick.'
