Lena Dunham Applauds Kim Kardashian West's Nude Selfies: 'Being Female and Feeling Powerful Is F---ing Great with Me'
The Girls star promotes body positivity for all women
“I love the Kardashians – I love to look at them,” Dunham says in an exclusive clip from the Power Women Breakfast series hosted by TheWrap where she talked about her role as an activist. “I’m all about it.”
“Every version of being female and feeling powerful is f—ing great with me,” Dunham says. “I don’t have a problem with it.”
The Girls star and creator says people shouldn’t be so quick to judge.
“I have no interest in, like, getting on a soapbox and making decisions about what should make other women feel beautiful or feel healthy or feel strong,” said Dunham.
The outspoken feminist also touches on the toxic environment surrounding the topic online.
“I think that’s a big part of the problem with the feminist dialogue on the internet right now is like, why are we screaming at each other?” Dunham, who recently turned 30, says of the backlash Kim Kardashian faced when she posted a nude photo celebrating her body.
“I don’t think there are important conversations to be had about, like whether Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie is like negatively affecting me or my child,” Dunham adds.

Dunham, who has been dating Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff since 2012, talks about the kind of world she’d want her possible future daughter to live in.
“I don’t have a child, but I feel like that’s a lot of people’s arguments, like, ‘I don’t want my daughter growing up in this world,’ ” Dunham says. “I’m like, ‘I want my daughter growing up in a world where there’s, like, a million options about what’s okay to do and how it’s okay to look.’ “
