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."

It's no secret that Lena Dunham isn't afraid to take off her clothes.
As writer, director and star of HBO's breakout series Girls, she appears topless – and sometimes bottomless – in quite a few episodes, including last Sunday's extended braless romp in a mesh top.
But Dunham, 26, whose series won two Golden Globes last month, says she has an important reason to go bare on her show.
"My point with getting naked is never proven," says the actress in the new Entertainment Weekly cover story, on newsstands Friday.

Allison Williams wouldn't masturbate in a public restroom. But that's not the only difference between her and Marnie Michaels, the character she plays on HBO's hit comedy Girls.
"There were moments reading the script that I thought, 'WOW, okay!' " the actress, 24, tells Company magazine's February issue and digital edition. "It's the most private thing anyone can do, but being an actress can make you feel vulnerable."
She adds: "My grandparents watch the show. I don't know why I was so concerned, though. They have been alive for virtually 90 years, so who am I to presume that sex never existed before me?"

As Hannah Horvath on the hit HBO series Girls, creator and actress Lena Dunham often finds herself struggling with romance.
But when it comes to her real life relationship with Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, the two-time Golden Globe winner says she's found love.
"I know there's some rule that you're not supposed to talk about your boyfriend publicly just because it seems like all starlets under the age of 33 have decided not to do that, but if you're in love with someone great, then I don't understand why you wouldn't tell everybody," Dunham says in the February issue of Interview magazine.
