Lena Dunham was more than willing to pose and open up to Playboy magazine in their latest issue. When asked by the men's publication who she would like to direct in a nude scene, she chose The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara and an actor that will definitely surprise you.
"I don't want them to date in real life, but I wouldn’t mind putting David Strathairn and Rooney Mara in a room together and seeing what happens next when they have sex in movie context," the Girls creator, 26, said of the Oscar nominee and Lincoln star.
Dunham's sexually charged show on HBO has earned her a Golden Globe award and tons of notoriety, so it's no surprise that she doesn't shy away from personal questions. When asked by Playboy how she first learned about sex, she recalled, "I think I was five. A girl at school explained it to me. I didn't believe her because it seemed so barbaric, so I went home and asked my parents if it was true. ...They said, ‘Your dad and I did this so that you could get made.’ ...I remember thinking, 'I don't want to learn this, and I definitely don't want to learn this looking at the faces of both of you.' ...But I asked. It was because of Amanda DiLauro told me, so it was really her fault."
The quadruple-threat star (actress/writer/director/executive producer) is known for being constantly nude on Girls, and revealed that she's not interested in having a Victoria's Secret body. "I don't think I'd like it very much," Dunham told the men's magazine. "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. 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."
