Lena Dunham has been called a “hypocrite” for losing weight and the Girls creator is not having any of it. Lena stopped by the Ellen show this week where she spoke about this concept.

“It’s just so crazy because I spent six years of my career being called things like ‘bag of milk’ on the internet—’bag of milk,’ ‘baby cow,’ ‘aging cow.’ I just never felt self-conscious about it. I was like, ‘Anyone who is going to take the time to say something negative about my weight on the internet isn’t someone I was particularly keen to impress anyway.’

“Then I had this experience of my body changing. Suddenly I got all these people saying, ‘You’re a hypocrite. I thought you were body positive. I thought you were a person who embraced body types of all sizes.’ I do. I just understand that bodies change. We live a long time. Things happen.”

She went on to explain that her weight loss is due to her attempts to control her endometriosis with exercise and healthy eating. She added that she’s “proud of what this body has seen and done and represented.”
