Lena Dunham Calls Jack Antonoff Her "Hero & It's Not The First Time She's Adorably Bragged About Her Man
Lena Dunham is feeling extra mushy about her man. And being Lena Dunham, she wanted the whole world to know exactly how she was feeling, so she took to Instagram. The actress told her followers that her boyfriend, Jack Antonoff, released a new single called "Like A River Runs" with his band Bleachers, along with a version sung by Sia and a spoken word piece about dreams. In the post Lena Dunham also called Jack Antonoff her hero, not just for his artistry but also for being a good man.
Anyone who has been keeping tabs on their relationship knows that Dunham bragging about Antonoff is nothing out of the ordinary, though. While she does tend to keep her current relationship much more private than her past relationships, which she opened up about in her book, she is not shy about letting the interwebs know just how much she cares about him. Whether it is calling him her "best advertisement" or discussing her cozy yet not stifling living arrangements with him, or simply just kissing him in public, Dunham wants to world to know that he is hers. Check out her sweet shout out to her man in the Instagram snap below, and four other times she has publicly turned her sap on.
Dunham was actually just asked to state the full name of the person she was dating, but she went above and beyond with her answer. She said, "I know there's some rule that you're not supposed to talk about your boyfriend publicly just because it seems like all starlets under the age of 33 have decided not to do that, but if you're in love with someone great, then I don't understand why you wouldn't tell everybody. You don't have to post naked pictures of them on the internet or tweet pictures of your Christmas celebration, but I feel like, in a way, he's my best advertisement, so I'm like, 'Why would I not tell people who ask?'"
In an interview with Howard Stern on his radio show, Dunham called Antonoff her "life partner." Though she said they don't want to get married until gay marriage is legal in all the states, she got extra gushy about their living arrangements. And it seems like they have a perfect amount of space to be themselves. "There's a room in our house where he goes and makes music. We were living in a studio apartment when I wrote [her new] book and he made his album," she said. "He goes into a room and doodles around on a keyboard and comes out and made magical things."
Email Love Letter
An email! How quaint. While Dunham was on vacation, she decided to send her love a sweet email, which she later shared as part of an art project. The sweetest part? She wrote, "I thought of you, like always, and I felt I could spend four days on a bench with you and it wouldn't be enough time to hear all the stories you have to tell — I literally want to know everything you have ever seen and what you felt like while you were seeing it. And I will be so much better my whole life for knowing those things."
In her Vogue cover story, the Girls creator opened up about once trying to accept the idea of being single forever. “I’d been like, If I never date again in my whole life, I’ll be fine with it! I want to work and rescue rabbits and be a notable eccentric!” she said. “I had a whole romantic idea about singledom, and then, of course, that’s the moment when you meet someone that you really care about.”
And of course, that person was Antonoff. Cue the "awws."
