Lena Dunham: I Thought the TSA Was Gonna Amanda Knox Me

Lena Dunham recently had a real-life Girls situation on her hands. In a crazy moment that felt like it was lifted right from the show, she was detained by airport security because of her — wait for it — cat key chain. As she explained on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday, she was gifted the self-defense item by someone on her staff and didn't realize its potential for harm. "It's shaped like a cat — it goes over your knuckles, but I guess the two ears could gut somebody . . . I understand intellectually that it could be used as a weapon, but all I really thought was, what a cute little cat!" As soon as it went through the scanners, Lena recalls, "I see two guys look at each other, like, 'Oh, we got a real situation on our hands,'" and after being detained for 45 minutes until law enforcement arrived, she was convinced they were "gonna Amanda Knox" her. Watch the video above to hear Lena's whole story, plus a screaming reaction to her big SNL-hosting news.
