When you're on a hit TV show, everyone wants to be your friend, but Lena Dunham wasn't always so popular!
The Girls creator and star may be able to make friends in a script, but she was never very good at making friends in life! She says:
"From kindergarten onward, I was like, 'I don't know what to do with people.' First I was a tiny little kid and I didn't have friends. And then I was a chubby teenager and I didn't have friends. It was just this sensation that I didn't know how to connect."
Aww! If we didn't know this story had such a happy ending, we'd be sobbing!
But Lena actually thinks she has her chubby, lonely youth to thank for her success. She says:
"I think we can all agree with the idea that the beautiful girls that get all the boys get written about. They don't usually write."
Would Lena still have written a hit show for HBO if she had been prom queen? Guess we'll never know.
But what we do know is that as bad as you feel about your situation now, it might just turn around into the life of your dreams! It happened for this Girl!
