She may have won two Golden Globes last weekend for her HBO series, Girls, but lately the most-talked about topic in regards to writer, filmmaker, and actress Lena Dunham has been her weight, not her talent. Radio host Howard Stern is in hot water for calling Lena a "little fat chick." And while Lena told David Letterman last week that the comments "put me in the best mood," the 26-year-old has been honest that she's had a love-hate relationship with her body, despite displaying it so freely on her show. She told New York Magazine:
"It's a very specific body. Even great reviews will be like: chubby, portly, overweight. . . . Sometimes I'm like, 'Ugh, how did I make myself the guinea pig for this?' But on the other hand, hating my body has not been my cross to bear in this life. Which I feel very lucky about."
Several famous women have opened up about their struggles with body image and eating disorders. Katie Couric revealed on her talk show that she struggled with bulimia when interviewing another famous lady who's dealt with eating disorders, Demi Lovato. And Lady Gaga, who has faced criticism about her weight gain, launched a movement called A Body Revolution to encourage body acceptance. She said she started it to "inspire bravery," adding, "Be brave and celebrate with us your 'perceived flaws,' as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous."
Many celebrity women have courageously talked about what they don't like about their bodies, their past eating disorder issues, and how they've overcome a negative body image. Let's be inspired to accept our bodies just how they are with these encouraging words now!

Lena Dunham was a newcomer on stage at the Golden Globes, after earning honors for the very first time. The writer and actress received a statue not only for her part on Girls but also for the HBO hit as a whole. Back in the press room, she joked about getting wrapped up in award season and how she "drank the Kool-Aid" by wearing heels to the show. She also answered questions about how she feels about critics of Girls, which Lena says are just part of her job. Check it out!
The fun continued last night as stars celebrated the 70th Annual Golden Globes with HBO's official afterparty at Circa 55 restaurant in the Beverly Hilton. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban showed love during the bash, while Golden Globe winner Lena Dunham hung out with Judd Apatow inside. Presenter Robert Pattinson and best actress winner Julianne Moore worked the room and Mad Men's Jon Hamm shared a moment with Zosia Mamet from Girls.
The hotel also played host to several other afterparties, including celebrations thrown by NBC, InStyle, and The Weinstein Company. Celebrities like Joe Manganiello and Ewan McGregor were among the party-hoppers that visited more than one event throughout the evening.
We were camped out in the press room at last night's Golden Globe Awards as all the big winners came through to celebrate their honors. Fresh from the stage, we got hilarious moments, like Lena Dunham explaining why she gave Chad Lowe a shout-out in her acceptance speech; sweet moments, like Jodie Foster talking about Kristen Stewart; and cute cracks from handsome guys like Ben Affleck and George Clooney. Check out our top 10 quotes from backstage in the winner's circle!
Last night, as Lena Dunham and her fellow Girls costars were celebrating their two Golden Globe wins — best TV series and best TV actress in a musical or comedy — the second season of the show was premiering on HBO. The funny, smart, and revealing show (in more ways than one), doesn't shy away from controversial sex and relationship topics, so we were happy to see its second season continue to push boundaries. Girls tackled abortion, HPV, and virginity in its first season, and last night we saw Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna, and, briefly, Jessa, face new challenges in their relationships.
When we meet up with the Girls girls, Hannah is "dating," or rather, sleeping with, a black Republican college student, Sandy — played by Community's Donald Glover. She's also taking care of her post-truck-accident Adam, who doesn't know she's dating someone and kinda-sorta thinks they're still together. To further complicate matters, Hannah's living with and spooning her gay ex, Elijah. Except Elijah turns out to be bisexual, and hooks up with Marnie at the housewarming party he and Hannah throw. To be fair, poor Marnie was a bit emotionally unstable after getting fired and seeing her own ex-boyfriend, Charlie, with his new flame at the party. But the real star of the premiere is Shoshanna, who's trying to stay positive and be confident in her postvirginity state after the deflowerer himself, Ray, dumps her and then also attends the housewarming party from hell. Lastly, we get a quick look at newlyweds Thomas-John and Jessa, who appear to be getting back from their honeymoon. When they grab a taxi, Jessa starts cracking up at the fact that their courtship was so brief she doesn't even know what address to give the cab driver. But alas, they do seem to be blissfully happy (and horny).
We've rounded up the best lines on love, sex, sexual orientation, and more from the Girls season two premiere. Check them out now and tell us in the comments what you thought of the episode!

Homeland's Claire Danes showed off her postbaby body in a red halter by Versace with her husband, Hugh Dancy, by her side, and Jennifer Lopez took the stage to present in a lacy Zuhair Murad number.

The 2013 Golden Globes were full of excitement and emotion in LA on Sunday night. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kept the evening light with their jokes and antics, like Amy nuzzling with George Clooney in the audience and the two of them likening Kathryn Bigelow's short-lived marriage to James Cameron to "torture." Other stars also got some big laughs as well, including presenter Aziz Ansari, who pretended to be stoned from Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery's weed cookies. Sacha Baron Cohen gave a mini roast of his Les Misérables costars, when he joked about Anne Hathaway's infamous upskirt incident and sarcastically remarked that Russell Crowe's singing lessons in preparation for the film was "money well spent." Jodie Foster came out while accepting her Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, moving many attendees to tears.
The show was also full of some big, surprising wins. Ben Affleck nabbed best director for Argo after getting shut out of the category for the Oscar nominations on Thursday, and Argo also won best drama motion picture over Lincoln. Hugh Jackman picked up the best actor in a comedy or musical honor, beating out favorite Bradley Cooper. Most winners broke down into happy tears while accepting their awards, including Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, and Lena Dunham. Lena got particularly emotional while admitting that she had looked up to her fellow best actress nominees when she was younger and that they helped her get through awkward moments. Always quick to add a joke, nominees Tina and Amy joked that they were happy they could get the young Lena "through middle school." Make sure to check out the full list of Golden Globes winners and weigh in on your favorite styles in our red-carpet fashion and beauty polls.
Lena Dunham's Girls won big at the Golden Globe Awards, and she joined her costar as well as creative partner, Judd Apatow, in the press room to talk about their honors. Lena continued to be sweet, gracious, and funny while Judd had nothing but praise for Lena. Check out their quotes:
Judd on Lena: "I don't think she's any voice of any generation, but she has a very strong voice. The world is too diverse for there to be any one voice."
Lena on critics of Girls: "I think when you get criticism, you have to be elegant about it and understand that it's part of the gift. I think people dislike the show for plenty of reasons."
Lena on Jodie Foster's speech: "Jodie Foster's speech was mind-blowingly beautiful. I think that one of the most wonderful things about the speech is that it is really a complex assessment about what it's like to have a career in this business over a long period of time."
Lena on wearing high heels: "If I was as cool as people think I should be, I'd be in flats. I drank the Kool-Aid. I'm wearing the high heels."
Lena on why she thanked Chad Lowe: "Because Hilary Swank forgot. And because I'm an a**hole."
