Oh snap!

The Girls creator posted:

Remind us not to cross Miz Dunham! LOLz.

We’re glad to see that Lena is standing up for herself, especially since she just passionately advocated for body confidence in her interview with Paper Magazine!

Previously, the brunette beauty noted:

“I think that it was important to me also to announce that ‘this is what I look like. I don’t have an interest in changing unless it’s on my own terms’ ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ I won’t say I’ll never lose weight in my life, but it’d have to be for reasons that made sense to me and weren’t to try to meet some industry standard.”

Well said!

However, it seems that this bit of shade may of been a bit premature as the magazine now claims they did NOT photoshop the image (which was originally taken in 2013). They explained:

“For the front cover of the magazine we used an image from the shoot you did in 2013 with the photographer Ruven Afanador, and which was published at the time by Entertainment Weekly. Here at Tentaciones, we acquired the photo via the Corbis agency, and we used the original that they sent us without applying any kind of retouching. Those who are familiar with and follow our magazine will know that we do not use Photoshop nor other digital tools to change the physical appearance of our cover stars, nor in the features to be found inside. On this occasion, the only thing we did was to crop the image to adapt it to the format of our front page.”

Yikes! It looks like Lena may have put her foot in her mouth this time around.

Nonetheless, it seems the publication isn’t upset with the starlet’s recent call out as they promised to send her free copies of Tentaciones as a gesture of goodwill. Phew!
