When the style-savvy trio exited the eatery, Konner was spotted carrying what looked to be a manuscript of the upcoming novel, All Is Not Forgotten. Witherspoon's production company, Pacific Standard, is already in the process of turning the Wendy Walker thriller into a movie. The novel, set to be released in 2017, centers around a teenager's rape in Connecticut and the efforts her parents and psychiatrist take to help her recall the details of the attack.

Witherspoon responded to the Golden Globe winner by tweeting: "Hey @lenadunham all I gotta say is you write the script and I'm there girl! #Seriouslytho."

Dunham's co-star Allison Williams also revealed to Glamour in February that her Girls character, Marnie Michaels, was influenced by Witherspoon's role as Tracy Flick in Election. "Lena says 'Tracy' a lot when she's directing me," Williams revealed. "That's Marnie's thing."
