Lena Dunham says her longtime collaborator Judd Apatow helped her get through the "darkness" of going public with her account of sexual assault.
The Girls star/creator spoke at the Rape Foundation Annual Brunch, which honored her fellow Girls producer, in Los Angeles on Sunday.
"It's an honor to be here to present this honor to my work brother/dad/son/husband/dad again, Judd Apatow," Dunham, 29, said during her speech. "My love and admiration for this man is boundless not just because he's a creative dynamo or the funniest person I've ever met, but because he's a tireless advocate for women."

Amy Schumer has a theory about the inherent inequality of women in show business: "I think people hate women."
In a roundtable of comedic actresses assembled for The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, the Inside Amy Schumer creator and star adds, "I don't think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling a them."
Schumer continues, "My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I'm not saying all men hate women, but there's such an aggression."
For the magazine's June 5 issue, THR sat down with Schumer, Lena Dunham, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross and Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon to discuss the struggles of being a woman in entertainment and the sexism they've encountered throughout their careers.

Girls fans know all about the bumbling romantic lives of Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa, but we haven't gotten very much insight into the love escapades of Elijah, Hannah's former closeted boyfriend-turned-BFF. Now, star Andrew Rannells says Elijah is finally in for an in-depth romantic storyline.
"Elijah gets to be a little bit serious this season, and he gets to have a serious relationship. I'm very excited about it," Rannells told PEOPLE about Girls' upcoming fifth season at the Olevolos Project brunch.
Like most characters on the HBO show, Elijah must contend with a learning curve when it comes to matters of the heart.
"We haven't seen it before so it's not like something he is good at. You're going to see him sort of flail around a lot," Rannells teased.
