Lena Dunham prefers to look like one of the ordinary girls
The HBO series creator and star, 26, says, "There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with" if she had the body of a Victoria's Secret model.
"I don't think I'd like it very much," she tells Playboy
in its April issue.
"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."
But having the perfect figure does have its perks, she says, explaining, "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."
Dunham, who has been dating
the band fun.'s lead guitarist, Jack Antonoff, since last year, also says her taste in men has changed over the years.
"When I was younger, I liked men who gave me some guff," she says. "Now I'm much more 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."
Adds the actress, "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."
