Outspoken actress / writer and star of ‘Girls’ Lena Dunham says that she can attribute all of her “true” adult pain to things that she’s read on the internet.

In an article for Harper’s Bazzar, Dunham, 29, genuinely appears to take zero accountability for the way she portrays herself on the internet and says every piece of adult pain she’s experienced has come from it, hmmm!

Dunham gave this very odd account of how she views herself from others [i.e., the internet] opinion…

“I’ve been put to bed for weeks from reading things about myself on sites that used to be considered feminist gospel. I love the Internet because it helped me discover everything that matters to me. But I also hate the internet because every piece of true pain I’ve experienced as an adult—with the exception of death in the family and breakups—has come from it.”

“Put to bed for weeks?” Seriously? The internet can be a hard place … and we, too, wish things were nicer and that people would play together better. But unfortunately, that’s just not reality. And not going into something so purposefully blind — having such a platform where you know you’re going to be uplifted, praised, mocked, criticized, and eviscerated to the highest degree — might change the way you relate to people, and how people relate to you … just saying.”
