Ask Lena: Girls Star Shares Advice on YouTube

If you’ve ever questioned which friendships are worth fighting for, how loud is too loud, or whether you can wear booty shorts and still be called a feminist (answer: yes), Lena Dunham is here to set the record straight. ask-lena

In anticipation of her September 30 Not That Kind of Girl book release, the Girls star offers sage advice in a fearlessly frank video series titled Ask Lena. In each hilarious installment of the 12-part video series, she answers real questions submitted by fans. Topics range from provocative dressing to “unfunny girlfriends.”

I would highly recommend giving the show a watch to tide you over until her book release. Divvy it up at two videos a day – or if you’re a binge-watcher like me, watch them all right now.

If you’re anything like me, it’s almost like Lena Dunham – a.k.a. Hannah Horvath – is speaking directly to you via her HBO original series, Girls. She can’t pay rent? You can’t pay rent. (Well, sometimes.) Ups and downs with your best friend? Preaching to the choir. And now, us just-like-me fans can connect with Dunham through a whole new medium: a book.
