Lena Dunham No Longer Cares What You Think About Her As She Approaches 30!

| Filed under: Lena DunhamBody

Lena Dunham is OVER it.

In an interview with Refinery29, Lena talked about her upcoming 30th birthday in May and how this milestone has shaped her current outlook on life. Not only has the marker changed her thoughts on babies and not thinking twice about what people think, but it's also morphing the direction of Girls.

Speaking on whether or not she's afraid to turn the big 30, L.D. revealed:

"I'm really excited. When I was turning 25, I felt this weird sense of dread, like…I no longer had a cushion or excuse [to fail], because if you're under 25, you're the modern equivalent of a child. Everyone I trust has reported back to me that the challenging aspects of your 20s — the sort of stuff Girls is about, actually — just evaporates into the rearview mirror in your 30s."

Considering Dunham has faced a ton of controversy surrounding her looks and personal anxiety, we can imagine why she's excited to leave her youth behind!

But wait, does this mean season 5 of Girls will be less angsty and… fun?

The actress explained:

"This next season, we're looking much more at long-term relationships, long-term jobs, and figuring out that our parents are humans, too, and we have to take care of them."

Inneresting! We're definitely curious to see how this plays out on February 21.

Luckily, the thematic changes won't deter Hannah Horvath from getting lots of sexy times:

Oh no!

Lena Dunham couldn't be more excited for the fifth season of Girls to premiere on HBO later this month!

But unfortunately the 29-year-old won't be doing press for the upcoming season due to health reasons.

On Monday, the actress took to Instagram to explain that she was skipping out on the press tour for her dramedy series because of a "rough patch" with her illness.

Dunham explained she is living with endometriosis — a chronic disorder that affects a woman's reproductive health — and was told by doctors to rest until her condition improves.

She thanked exec producers Jennifer Konner and Judd Apatow for their "support and backup," and made it clear she wouldn't take this hiatus for granted — as so many women battling the disease "literally don't have the option" of taking time off.

We're glad the writer is taking the time to rest up when her body needs it the most. Feel better, girl!

Girls will be girls!

The news that Lena Dunham's critically acclaimed Girls would be coming to an end after Season Six may have been a bit disappointing, but luckily, that's still not for another year.

That's because we've still got Season Five to look forward to!

HBO finally released a new promo for the upcoming installment of Girls on Wednesday, and while it's only :50 seconds long, we feel like things are back to how they were when the show first started.

Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver, Alex Karpovsky, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Andrew Rannells really seem to be firing on cylinders — and we cannot wait to see how Shoshanna is functioning in Japan. LOLz!

It's safe to say we'll be tuning in when Girls returns Sunday, February 21 at 10 p.m. EST on HBO.

Ch-ch-check out the first promo for the penultimate season of Girls (above)!!!

Elmo can really deliver that witty banter!

On Saturday, Sesame Street packed up and moved to HBO from PBS for its 46th season!

It's no surprise that the premium cable network is an inneresting home for the preschool classic, being that most shows on HBO cater to a more adult audience!

So, Jimmy Kimmel decided to help the newbie get accustomed to a more mature network by combining footage of Sesame Street with audio from the HBO dramedy Girls!

Video: Jimmy Fallon & The Sesame Street Gang Photobomb Kids!

In the Jimmy Kimmel Live clip, Elmo and Abby have a hilarious discussion about sexuality courtesy of dialogue used in a scene with Lena Dunham and Andrew Rannells!

If you're wondering why they didn't spoof Game Of Thrones instead — Sesame Street already took care of that on its own!

Ch-ch-check out the muppet repartee (below)!
