Lena Dunham is comfortable in her body, in case you weren’t aware. The “Girls” creator appears in the new issue of Playboy, telling the mag she doesn’t want a perfect figure.

Asked what she would do if she woke up tomorrow in the body of a Victoria’s Secret model, Dunham says, “I don’t think I’d like it very much. There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with that I don’t have to deal with now.”

The actress-writer-director explains, “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. The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you.” Dunham adds, “It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way and be in public,” joking, “That said, I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants.”

The Tiny Furniture star also opens up to the mag about her relationship with Fun guitarist Jack Antonoff, revealing that in contrast to her younger years, she’s now “into someone who is interesting and open with his emotions, has a really good sense of humor and a passion for what he does, wants to hang out with my parents and doesn’t want to stay out too late.” Dunham shares, “If I can get excited imagining funny things he did as a kid, there’s a pretty good chance I’m in love with him.”
