Why Lena Dunham Doesn't Want To Be A Victoria's Secret Angel

15 March 2013 by

Most women would kill to have a Victoria's Secret angel figure like Miranda Kerr, but not Lena Dunham. If she was given the option of being, say, Ms Alessandra Ambrosio she would turn it down.

When asked in an interview with Playboy Magazine how she'd feel if she woke up as a Victoria's Secret model she said: "I'd be really disorientated and wonder what had happened in the night. Which enemy had dragged me to the doctor?"

Lena doesn't think being one of the most beautiful women in the world would be all that great, as she said: "There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with that I don't have to deal with now. I don't want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack. Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier. The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you. It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way in public. That said, I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants. Then I'd call a doctor and see if she could return me to my former situation."

But she could think of one advantage of becoming an Angel (other than blagging free food in restaurants). Two words: Ryan Gosling. She joked, "I definitely haven't had any Ryan Goslings saying, 'I love the way your mind works. Can I take you to dinner?' Maybe it would happen if I looked like a Victoria's Secret model for one day. Now I understand how I could use that." Lena, WE like the way your mind works and love you exactly the way you are.

Although Lena has "done Playboy", she broke the mould and wore MORE clothes than she usually does for work. In Girls, she spends most of her time having naked bathtime with her BFFs and playing topless ping pong, but for Playboy she was dressed in a 60s shift, white sunnies and white shoes (VERY Spring 2013 of you, Lena) and played the part of a lady, sat in a 60s circle chair.
